To this day, I think I might be one of the only people on earth who has never seen an episode of “Breaking Bad.” Even though the series has ended, its legend lives on, and I still find myself excluded from any and all Walter White-related water cooler conversation. But once a show has been on the air for a while, it seems like a daunting task to start watching from the beginning, sometimes having to catch up on several seasons, just to be able to understand why everyone keeps saying “bitch” at the end of every sentence. But I learned the hard way: it’s better to be late to the game than to never show up at all. If you’re crippled by FOMO and want to feel like you’re relevant in society, you should be watching at least one of these TV shows with cult followings … even if it means locking yourself inside for the rest of spring. Your street cred will thank you.
A lot of people have been watching the melodramatic political series “House of Cards” on Netflix (which I believe is a remake of the highly acclaimed ”How a Bill Becomes a Law” episode of “Schoolhouse Rock”), and many of these viewers are complaining about how silly it is.

It’s official. Frank and Claire Underwood are officially my favorite married couple currently on TV. “House of Cards”‘ calculating vice president (played by Kevin Spacey) and his powerful and beautiful wife (played by Robin Wright) are proof that the couple that lies, schemes and smokes together, stays together, by any means necessary. Netflix just debuted the second season of the Washington, D.C., drama over the weekend and if you’re as obsessed as I am, you’ve already finished watching all 13 episodes. By god, should I ever get married someday, please let my relationship be as committed and focused as this one. After all, the most successful and long lasting partnerships are between people who bring out the
good best in each other. Here’s a guide to how to have a completely non-traditional, sexy and ruthless marriage just like Frank and Claire Underwood. (Be warned: this post contains spoilers about season two.) Keep reading »

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held this past Saturday. Traditionally meant to be a dinner held for members of the press covering the administration, of late, the annual dinner has morphed into a glamorous celeb-filled kind of thing. I mean, Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian went last year, guys! But seriously, the Correspondents’ Dinner is the one time of year that politicos and the press corps mingle and imbibe in a no-stress, yelling-free environment.
