Watch These Cats Go Totally “Mean Girls” On Each Other

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

In every toxic friendship, one person is the Regina George while the other is her fan/underling who will do anything for her approval. Apparently, cats are no exception. Watch these kitties act like best friends until one of them abruptly changes her mind. Despite their drama, they’re totally adorable. [Tastefully Offensive]

So Not Fetch: The MPAA Tried To Give “Mean Girls” An R Rating

“We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Alessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Alessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even. … The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because ‘Anchorma’n had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”

In honor of the 10th anniversary of “Mean Girls” (gah, I’m old), director Mark Waters shared 10 juicy behind-the-scenes tales from Tina Fey’s best movie ever. In addition to sharing that Rachel McAdams was almost cast as Cady Heron, Amanda Seyfried was almost cast as Regina George, and Amy Poehler was almost not cast at all, Waters shared a particularly sexist struggle that the filmmakers had with the MPAA board. The movie ratings organization is notoriously more condemnatory when it’s female sexual pleasure onscreen (rather than male) as well as slang words about female anatomy. (Watch the documentary “This Film Is Not Yet Rated” for so much appalling shit about the MPAA.) Not surprisingly, the latter was absolutely true in the case of “Mean Girls,” where the filmmakers had to fight valiantly to keep in the phrase “wide-set vagina.” Oh, Tina Fey. Keep on fighting the good fight. [NYMag.com]

Patti LaBelle Would Like You To Know That Today’s Pop Stars Are “Little Heifers”

Patti LaBelle, whom most of us would consider to fit squarely into the “history-making power divas” category, isn’t too fond of the d-word anymore. According to LaBelle:

“That word is used so loosely that I don’t even consider myself a diva. I always considered myself a woman who sings her heart out and who gives 120 percent. ‘Diva’ is a word that I wouldn’t wanna call myself because it’s so loosely used. It’s not cute anymore.”

New Study Claims Women Are Inherently Catty

Next time I gossip, I’ll just blame it on evolution.

A scientific review of almost 100 evolutionary psychology papers has left researchers with the … shall we say dubious conclusion … that women are wired to be catty to each other. Seriously. Tracy Vaillancourt, a psychology professor at the University of Ottawa, led the study and wrote that women have evolved to use gossip and backstabbing to effectively maximize the potential harm on their targets and prevent significant damage to themselves.

Bet You Can’t Do This: Intern Recites Mean Girls In 30 Minutes

"She is a fuuugly slut!"

Well this makes me feel inadequate. Christopher Rosa, Next Movie‘s intern, literally recited the whole Mean Girls movie in less than 30 minutes. And I know this because I played it in the background as I was writing this post. I mean, I could only understand Rosa’s performance about 50 percent of the time, when he’s actually acting it out. And the other 50 percent of the time? Kind of a mix of half words and gibberish. Whatever. Still so fetch. [Crushable]

The "Betches" Are Professional Mean Girls

Please meet “betches” Jordana Abraham, Samantha Fishbein and Aleen Kuperman. This trio of childhood friends who coined the term “betch” while they were attending Cornell together go by the mottos: “If you don’t have anything mean to say, don’t say it at all” and “Don’t be easy, don’t be ugly, don’t be poor.”

Some more of their inspirational advice has included: “You should learn to be a girl who looks out for herself first and does not allow others to take advantage of her. Ideally, you should be doing the advantage-taking” and “It’s important to realize that as a woman, you have the special privilege of not needing to work as hard as men do — in the general sense — unless you want to.”

Preach, betches!   Keep reading »
