Do you find that you have just too much support? That people like you too much? That you’re just up to your eyelashes in friendships? Me too, comrade! Here’s how to destroy all of that.

It’s really important to pick fights with your friends. If there’s something that isn’t a big deal, it’s your job to make it as big a deal as possible. If they don’t see your point of view, it’s because they’re selfish idiots. You, by default of being you, will always be correct. Don’t put up with their guff. Storm out of the room. Keep reading »

I didn’t know girls still did cliques at this age. I mean, I guess I could’ve figured it out, but I didn’t really give it much thought.

I was homeschooled, so I missed a lot of that stuff, which I’ve always felt lucky for. But no one can miss all of it.

It takes about two seconds of remembering to whip me back in time to the girls’ bathroom at the synagogue, where I am engaged in that most classic and venerable of traditions: crying helplessly, locked in a stall. It is my first day of Hebrew High School. I’m thirteen, and none of the other girls will talk to me. It’s not just implied, it’s outright. They cross the room to avoid me and then cluster together, whispering. Keep reading »

Mean girls happen. They happen at 9 years old on the playground. At 21 years old in the sorority. They happen in blockbuster Lindsay Lohan movies.

And for me, they happened when I was 27. Keep reading »

Taylor Swift Fires Back At Mean Girls And Bullies

Taylor Swift‘s new video for “Mean” is pretty … nice. Taylor has said that the song channels how she feels about critics who go overboard with nasty comments. But in the videos, she broadens the meaning—showing football players picking on a fashion-loving guy and a group of mean girls mocking a classmate who works as a waitress. Both those characters get their comeuppance in the future. But my favorite part of the video is where Taylor plays the part of a damsel in distress being tied to the train tracks. In the end, she undoes her own ropes. All in all, a good message. Keep reading »

Why Is This Happening? “Mean Girls 2″ Is Coming Soon

Whoa, Lindsay Lohan is having a bad week. First, she loses her porn-y role in “Inferno” (the Linda Lovelace biopic) to Malin Akerman. And now, there’s a new, horrible, and unfunny-looking sequel to her classic film, “Mean Girls.” The sequel includes a bevy of interchangeable Disney Channel stars and features more pink outfits, bitchy teen antics, and prompted puking than the original. And oh, who are we kidding, we’ll be watching. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Hangs Out With ‘Mean Girls’”

A couple months ago I entered into a relationship with an awesome guy whom I work with (not necessarily the best call, but what can you do!). So far, things have been pretty good. We have the ability to keep it professional at work and we share the same sense of humor, etc.. The problem is, a couple girls in our office also like him, but are very catty about it. They’re the kind of girls who attempt to be your friend in order to get info. Recently, a coworker whom I am also friends with overheard these girls saying nasty things about me and that they hope my relationship would end. I told this to my boyfriend, but he still continues to spend time with them at work and outside of work (without me!). I told him I didn’t want it to influence their friendship — I would just hope he would see that it really hurt my feelings, and any girl who would say that is not as good of a friend of his as he thought. I’m reluctant to tell him that this is making me crazy, but I don’t know what else to do! — Jealous Coworker

We Cast “Mean Girls 2″

If you don’t count “Mean Girls” as one of the best movies of the last decade, then you just weren’t paying enough attention. And now Paramount Famous Productions has given the go-ahead on “Mean Girls 2″ — just a mere six years later. Given the first movie’s superior Tina Fey-penned humor, it would be tragic if this one were anything but fantastic. The proposed plot goes something like this: “A new high school student, Jo, who agrees to befriend an outcast, Abby, at the urging of Abby’s wealthy father in exchange for paying all of Jo’s costs for the college of her dreams. Jo and Abby team up to take on the school’s ‘mean girls,’ the Plastics. The story becomes a high stakes battle of loyalty that ultimately comes to a head when one of our heroines finds out that her friendship has been bought and paid for.” [NY Post]

Because the original cast is either too famous, too old, or too crazy — ahem, Lohan, ahem — to return for the sequel, we’ve recast it to our liking. After the jump, our picks. Keep reading »

Is “Easy A” The Next “Mean Girls”?


Color me excited about the upcoming comedy “Easy A,” starring Emma Stone (from “Superbad,” amongst others). The movie is a modern take on The Scarlet Letter — much like “Clueless” was Amy Heckerling’s loose re-envisioning of Jane Austen’s Emma — about a not-very-popular girl named Olive who decides to use her high school’s rumor mill and a little white lie about losing her v-card to advance her social standing amongst her classmates. Emma Stone is hilarious and relatable, much like Lindsay Lohan was, tear, during her “Mean Girls” days, and “Easy A” looks like it’ll tackle the issues of high school cliques, mean rumors, and virginity loss with the same smart and sarcastic humor. Can’t wait! [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
