You Need To Hear What Laverne Has To Say
  • Transgender actress Laverne Cox, who plays Sophia, the trans woman on “Orange Is The New Black,” and model Carmen Carrera appeared yesterday on “Katie” and Katie Couric kept pushing the issue of their genitalia. Fast foward to 2 minutes and 45 seconds into this video where Laverne explains to Katie what focusing on transitions — the surgeries, the hormones — takes the attention away from the real issues that face trans folks every day: discrimination, violence, lack of legal protections. “By focusing on bodies, we don’t focus on the lived realities of that oppression and that discrimination,” she says. Well put. [Salon Keep reading »

Awful Boyfriend Bribes Woman To Lose Weight With A Wedding Ring

Awful Boyfriend Bribes Woman To Lose Weight With A Wedding Ring On "Katie"
He Promised Her A Ring If She Got Down To 140 Pounds

In an upcoming episode of “Katie,” formerly plus-sized women get sweet revenge on the people who fat-shamed them. In this clip, single gal Jennifer Tippie talks about the ex-boyfriend who told her that if she got down to 140 pounds, he would put a ring on her finger because, ya know, he really wanted to be with someone who was “proportionate to him.” Oh, men who tell women to lose weight are always such PRINCES, aren’t they? Especially when they offer marriage as the motivation. It’s hard to imagine turning such an appealing offer down, but Jennifer did. She lost the weight on her own and now she will flaunt her “revenge body” in her ex’s face.

If a man has ever even suggested that you lose weight in order to date him — or change anything about your appearance — now’s the time to publicly shame him in our comment section. Have at it.

Jessica Simpson Shills For Weight Watchers On "Katie"

“I’ve just had a lot of pressure on me to lose my baby weight,” said Jessica Simpson, the very first guest on Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show “Katie.”

The episode about Jessica’s post-baby weight loss was actually more tasteful than I expected — she didn’t do a huge “body reveal moment” or pull out an old pair of huge-ass pants. But at the same time, Jessica shilled, shilled, shilled and it kinda felt like an hour-long commercial for Weight Watchers. Keep reading »

5-Year-Old Blogger Takes Over Fashion Week, What’s Next?

Can we put a hold on the pint-sized fashion bloggers please? Thirteen-year-old Tavi Gevinson was one thing, since she has a unique point of view and personal style, but during Fashion Week, Racked hired a 5-year-old toddler to hang out at the Tents and report on the scene for their blog! During the eight days, “Katie” talked to Fern Mallis, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and BryanBoy, and gave her very educated opinion on select shows like Michael Angel. Sure, it’s great press for the site, and an interesting way to look at fashion, but shouldn’t we want to hear about the new trends and fashion news from the editors who’ve studied the craft for years? I know I do. Interestingly, though, Katie wore the same thing every day. Or did they fake her eight days of blogging so she wouldn’t have to miss pre-school? [Racked] Keep reading »

So You Think You Can Dance Does Duffy’s “Mercy”

On last night’s So You Think You Can Dance, contemporary choreographer Mia Michael’s composed a dance for contestants Twitch and Katie that went along with one of our favorite songs of the summer — Duffy’s “Mercy”. The storyline for the dance was awesome — a clingy desperate woman trying to cling to her man. I loved the use of the doorway as a prop. Check out the clip above! Keep reading »
