I guess “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” HBIC Lisa Vanderpump was in New York last week to promote her new Bravo disaster “Vanderpump Rules,” and she spent a little quality time with comedienne Julie Klausner. Klausner took her to the faux dive bar The Rusty Knot, and foisted picklebacks (a personal fave) upon her. Lisa was not having it, but she was having a really good game of pool. Lisa strikes me as the one real housewife who actually has a sense of humor, and plus, she has Jiggy, so what’s not to love? [NYMag.com]

Trash the “Twilight” franchise all you want, but they know how to build some sexual tension. Four movies in, Bella and Edward finally had sex — rough sex, actually! — and I can’t be the only one who got a little turned on. Here’s comedienne Julie Klausner hosting a “Twilight” horniness focus group to get to the bottom of just how sexy “Breaking Dawn, Part Two” will be. She’s a vampire now you guys. They’re body temperature is the same. [NYMag.com]
Soon after Betty White hosted “Saturday Night Live,” I remember asking my friend Nate, a fellow “Golden Girls” fanatic, what he thought of all the fuss around White’s meteoric comeback. He rolled his eyes, shrugged, and said, “It’s just weird that everybody’s finally come around to realizing that Betty White is amazing. Where have they been?”
He was right: the recent trend of people catching on to the fact that Betty White is terrific felt patronizing, and not just because most were astonished that an adorable old lady could land a joke better than most “SNL” hosts one-third her age (I’m looking at you, January Jones); it was the belated appreciation of White’s fabulousness that made all of us look even sillier.
Hey, remember earlier, when Jessica joked about not wanting to hear a bunch of news anchors wonking about Tiger Woods — unless it was me on CNN.com? Oh look, there I am. Earlier this afternoon, after Tiger purged in front of a rapt televised audience, I went on CNN.com Live and talked with I Don’t Care About Your Band author Julie Klausner and Terisa Greenan, creator of the polyamory-themed web series “Family,” about the whole debacle. Check it out above. Keep reading »
A relationship book called Marry Him: The Case For Settling For Mr. Good Enough by Lori Gottlieb has been the topic of much blog discussion in the last few weeks, thanks to its controversial suggestion that women should throw out their list of dealbreakers, settle and marry the best guy they can find. Also on bookshelves? A far more entertaining and hysterical book about, in part, the very guys Gottlieb might implore you to settle for. Comedian Julie Klausner’s I Don’t Care About Your Band: What I Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I’ve Dated is a hysterical series of essays about the “lessons learned from romantic disappointments.” Klausner began chasing boys early — she describes a certain epiphany she had, mid-blow job, as “I remember thinking the moment I felt Nick’s goth penis in my mouth that I. Was. Home.” — eventually accumulating a treasure trove of tragically hilarious dating tales. After the jump, Klausner answers some of our more pertinent questions… Keep reading »
