Kickass Woman Of The Day: Mandy Hansen, The First Female Crew Member On “Deadliest Catch”

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Mandy Hansen, The First Female Crew Member On "Deadliest Catch"

“Deadliest Catch” is one of my favorite reality shows. I love watching marathons of it when I’m sad or depressed, because nothing makes me feel better about my current life situation than being reminded that it could be worse, and specifically, that I could be in the middle of a 24-hour shift on a tiny crab boat in the middle of a hurricane on the Bering Sea, with snot and fish guts frozen to my face. That being said, the show is a total sausage fest — crab fishing is an industry dominated by men, and the show’s cast reflects that. Besides one husband and wife captain team, you rarely, if ever, see a woman on the show.

But 18-year-old Mandy Hansen is about to change that. Keep reading »

Childbirth is a miracle. It’s a miracle that I intend to experience (hypothetically, in the distant future, maybe) with an epidural and as many pain-numbing drugs as they’ll give me.

Some moms-to-be go the other extreme: giving birth outdoors, literally on the floor of the fuckin’ woods, sans a doctor. And because this is America, there’s a new Lifetime reality show about them called “Born In The Wild.” Keep reading »

Weirdest. Date. Ever. Read More »

There should be some sort of adult lady merit badge for sitting through four hours of “The Bachelorette” in 48 hours. I’m just saying. Let’s review last night’s episode, which featured the most emotionally manipulative date I’ve ever witnessed on this stupid show that I just can’t quit, not to mention an unexpected departure.

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: Andi Goes On The Most Embarrassing & Unhinged Dates In “Bachelorette” History

For some reason, ABC has decided that one two-hour episode a week just isn’t enough “Bachelorette.” This week, there are two two-hour episodes of my favorite reality TV dating show, one last night and then another tonight. Yay, four hours of “The Bachelorette” — how did I get so lucky? The good news is, last night’s episode was significantly less depressing than last week’s, but it was also easily among the weirdest episodes I’ve ever seen. Let’s dole out some superlatives and you’ll see what I mean! Keep reading »

"The Bachelorette" Superlatives: Two Reasons I Had To Turn Off Last Night's Episode

Every season, I dutifully sit through each needlessly long episode (two hours! why?!) of “The Bachelor” or “Bachelorette,” delighting in the ridiculousness of the various dates and awkwardness of the forced romantic interactions. But I hit a wall pretty early into last night’s episode and had to turn it off. Why? Well, I’ll let these two “Bachelorette” superlatives explain why… Keep reading »
