10 Uniquely Awesome Things About Living In The South

My boyfriend Nick and I have lived in Tennessee for almost two months now. After spending most of our lives in the Pacific Northwest, we are total newbies to the South, so while we are by no means experts on Southern culture, we also don’t take any part of it for granted. From big hair…

7 TV Shows That Have Seriously Sexy Sex

With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore.

Girl Talk: Taking The Leap

Up until last month, my boyfriend Nick and I had lived in Oregon all of our lives. We both grew up in small towns outside of Portland, and then, after high school, we migrated into the city like people from small towns tend to do. For the past few years, Nick worked at the cheese…

OK, you guys, I know a lot of you watch “Nashville” and you’re no doubt as excited/nervous/sad as I am that the big season finale is TONIGHT.

Random Style Inspiration: The Grand Ole Opry

This past weekend Nick and I went to The Grand Ole Opry and it. was. awesome. The auditorium itself was beautiful, and I was blown away by performances by Rhonda Vincent (seriously, watch her bluegrass version of “Jolene” and try not to fall in love with her!), The Striking Matches, and a bunch of classic…

Travel Diary: The Long Road From Portland To Nashville

Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee! We got into town last week after a 4-day, 2300-mile road trip with everything we own crammed in the trunk of my Volkswagen Jetta. This was, by far, the longest road trip I’ve ever taken, and the drive itself is something I will never forget. I’ve been trying to figure out…

Hayden Panettiere Does Not Regret Her Misspelled “No Regrets” Tattoo

“When I was younger, I was upset, and my dad said he wanted to show me something. He slammed one door of the bathroom, and the closet door popped open—it was a trick with the air. He said, ‘Whenever one door closes, another one always opens.’ So my tattoo means ‘Live without regrets.’ It’s not…

Connie Britton Doesn’t Want To Talk About Aging

“Just drawing on my own experience, I never — I never — personally reference myself as old. I don’t think of myself as old, but I certainly would not say that to a man. I might have a conversation with some girlfriends — what are we doing about the lines around our eyes — but…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Clare Bowen Is More Than A Little Bit Country

Clare Bowen plays sweet, innocent, crazy-talented Scarlett on “Nashville” and also might be the cutest person to ever walk the earth, but she showed up for a recent appearance on “Good Morning America” buried under layers and layers of country-fried clothes and accessories. I’m all about the “more is more” fashion philosophy, especially when it…

Carrie Underwood Swears The Real Nashville Isn’t As Dramatic As The Show

“I hope [the viewers] don’t think all the ladies of country music are that scandalous, because I promise you we’re not. I hope people don’t think it’s all backstabbing and everybody sleeping with everybody else. That’s really not [the case], at least to my knowledge. There might be all kinds of stuff going on that…

“Nashville” Creator Callie Khouri Is A Feminist

“When I started reading Ms. Magazine when I was 16 years old, I knew, Oh, there’s a name for this. I didn’t know before that, but I knew I had some pretty serious discussions with people about women’s place in the world and had some serious brushing up against authority issues. There’s a lot of head-shaking and forehead-slapping whe…

Connie Britton Pens Op-Ed On Romney’s Use Of “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts”

“Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. And the women we represented on the show — the women we are in real life — are like the millions of women across the nation. Women who want to make our own health care decisions.

It’s A “Nashville” Recap, Y’All: Daddy Issues, Sticky Fingers & Low Self-Esteem

Every episode of “Nashville” brings me such joy. I love that there are musical interludes but that the entire show isn’t just one song-and-dance number after the other. I love that everyone is genuinely talented — this is hardly a David Silver-becomes-a-rapper situation; everyone who sings on the show, from Her Royal Highness Connie Britton
