“Mean Girls” Cast Reunites 10 Years Later, Looks Better Than Ever

"Mean Girls" Cast Reunites 10 Years Later, Looks Better Than Ever

It’s been over 10 years since “Mean Girls” hit theaters, and somehow I’m still just as much in love with The Plastics as I was a decade ago. This week, Entertainment Weekly is releasing their famous reunion edition of the mag, which showcases photos and interviews with the reunited casts of movies and TV shows from the past, including a super-hot spread with the ladies of “Mean Girls.”

Lindsay Lohan, Lacey Chabert, Rachel McAdams, Tiny Fey and Amanda Seyfried got back together for the shoot, and, in my humble opinion, look more stunning than ever. Check out a few pics of the cast here (after the jump!) before picking up the issue this Friday. Also included in EW‘s Reunion Issue are the casts of “Monty Python,” “Ghostbusters,” “Little House On The Prairie,” “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” “Sisters,” “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Sports Night.” SO fetch.

There are about a million and one reasons to love the Smithsonian museums, but I guess one of them is their Twitter account, which is run by someone who’s apparently incredibly fetch. I don’t know if you knew that today is “Mean Girls” Day (yes, it’s a thing), so the Smithsonian Twitter account has been tweeting out “Mean Girls” references with pictures of artworks in their collections. Behold: Keep reading »

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.
