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…

8 Totally Mean Things Women Do To Men

The dudes over at AskMen.com came up with a list of “10 Cruel Things Women Do To Men,” including giving out fake phone numbers, withholding sex, flirting to make you jealous, etc. OK, I’ve done that last one. But as a lady, I can confess a few more sins I’ve seen my kind do to…

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…

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…

My Slut-Called Life: NJ High School Girls Circulate A “Slut List”

Hazing: It’s not just for Chuck Bass at the Skull & Bones Society anymore! High school girls in New Jersey are now pretending they’re badasses by putting younger girls on a nasty “slut list.” The New York Times reported that catty seniors at Millburn High School in wealthy Millburn, New Jersey have circulated a “slut

Why Are Women Such Bitches To Each Other?

Here’s a newsflash: we women aren’t always very nice to each other. From our insecurities about our imperfections, to our competitive drive and anxieties over not measuring up, we can be total bitches to one another. A recent article in the Times suggests that this mean-girl mentality is the pink elephant in the workplace that…

“Bride Wars”: “Mean Girls” For Grown Women!

Do you ever feel old while watching movies like “Mean Girls” or shows like “Gossip Girl” and “90210” because you’re completely out of the characters’ age range? Sometimes I do. I think to myself, “Why is this stuff so entertaining to me? I don’t have these issues anymore. Am I losing precious brai…

The Best Mean Girls In TV And Film

We have a love/hate relationship with Mean Girls. In reality, we know from firsthand experience that Mean Girls can ruin a teen’s life. But when it comes to TV and film, we find Mean Girls totally entertaining and have been known to root for them. Usually, the Mean Girl in a show or movie i…

12 Things Mean Girls Do To Take Down the Competition

It’s no secret that women can be incredibly competitive and catty with each other. In yesterday’s post about Mean Girls we argued that no one can bring a woman down faster and harder than another woman. Right now, a lot of us are reconnecting with our own inner Mean Girls when it come…

Why Does Sarah Palin Bring Out The Mean Girls In Us?

Any female who’s survived the treacherous battleground of a junior high school slumber party knows that no one can bring a girl down harder and faster than another girl. Slumber parties from my past always included as many crying jags, jabbing insults, hurtful gossip, and broken friendships as they did romantic comedies and…

Video Games: Chick Flicks Get Played

The triumvirate of teen queen movies: Pretty In Pink, Mean Girls, and Clueless — are all getting remade into Broadway musicals. Sike! Although we’re sure some of the score will be watered down into electronic bleeps, they’re actually turning the dramas into full on games. Paramount Pictures, who owns all the movies, is creating digital…

Catfights On TV: Strategies Of A Queen Bee

On Friday, I did indeed watch Queen Bees on the N, like I promised. And boy do I have to say that it was everything the network had promised. Cat fights. Lies. And diva-tude, galore. I usually get annoyed when producers release the first 10 minutes of a show because when the show…

Alert: Queen Bees Attacking Tonight

The N Network has a new show, Queen Bees, premiering tonight at 9 p.m., and I’m not ashamed to admit that my Friday night is looking up. The show is not about nature, but does feature queen bees, or biyatches, in their natural, swanky habitat. Host Yoanna House (America’s Next Top Model, Cycle Two) will…

Prom Crosses The Pond

Here’s a switch: there’s an American teen invasion in Britain. High schoolers in the U.K. who see movies like Napoleon Dynamite and Mean Girls want proms of their very own. Over the past few years Hummer limos, tuxedo rentals, and candy-colored ball gowns have been selling/renting like hot cakes across the country. Really, of all…

Girls Who Think They’re Hot Are More Likely To Be Bullied

According to a study of 2,300 students ages 12 to 18, girls who viewed themselves as attractive had a 35 percent higher chance of being involved in emotionally damaging scenarios, i.e., receiving hurtful anonymous notes, being socially excluded, or having rumors spread about them. I knew there were lessons to be learned from Mean Girls.
