Please meet “betches” Jordana Abraham, Samantha Fishbein and Aleen Kuperman. This trio of childhood friends who coined the term “betch” while they were attending Cornell together go by the mottos: “If you don’t have anything mean to say, don’t say it at all” and “Don’t be easy, don’t be ugly, don’t be poor.”

It’s a hilarious piece of… READ MORE »
