Just toss me a like! Is that so hard?

“Sisters” Screenwriter Paula Pell Is Our Favorite Twitter Follow

Even though last night’s Golden Globes telecast was woefully bereft of as much Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as I would have liked (three hours, non-stop, give them all the awards, don’t invite anyone else, etc.), we did get a 20-second look at their new comedy, “Sisters,” and naturally, it is 100x better than any relationshi…

9 Ridiculous Questions People Need To Stop Asking Adult Twins

For as long as I can remember, people have been asking me what it’s like to be a twin. Over the years, I’ve expected the questions to become less stupid and frequent, but unfortunately, the exact opposite has happened, leaving me fearful for humankind and hoping Darwinism comes into play sooner rather than later.

Girl Talk: Assorted Thoughts On Sisterly Love

Here are my first memories of my sisters.

My newborn sister Jenny is brought home from the hospital, three days after my birthday. I am excited, suspicious, eager, and in my curiosity, poke her in the eye, provoking a banshee shriek that does not stop. This sets the tone for all of our…

Men With Sisters Are More Likely To Become Republicans, Do Less Housework

My brother grew up with four sisters in the house. I know, right? Come to find out, there’s more to having a bunch of sisters than just growing up to be a ladies’ man. A new study published in the Journal of Politics has found that boys with sisters are more likely to grow u…

Dress Off: Dakota Fanning Vs. Elle Fanning

Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning — they’re young, they’re talented and they’re so, so pretty. Both sisters have incredible careers and great style (and are at least three years away from the legal drinking limit). Both of them make me feel like I haven’t accomplished squat with my life. Thanks Fannings, I’m depressed now.

The Cast Of “Sisters” — Where Are They Now?

What were you doing 20 years ago today? Perhaps preparing to watch a new NBC drama called “Sisters”?

It was two decades ago that the Emmy-winning series premiered, earning critical acclaim and a loyal fanbase, while helping to launch the careers of up-and-comers like Ashley Judd and Paul Rudd. The series also earned a…

Girl Talk: My Sister Taught Me How To Masturbate

I was 14 and I was having slippery feelings. I was having them for Roelle, the sophomore with giant tits who told me she liked my shirt, before crawling under a wool blanket to make out with her boyfriend on the front lawn of the high school. I was having them for Eleanor, who told…

Girl Talk: Forget Sisters, It’s My Brother Who Keeps Me Sane

When we were kids, my younger brother Greg drove me bonkers. His favorite activity was lying like a corpse on my bed while I screamed, “GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT!” until I finally dragged him into the hallway. He also liked hiding, then jumping out and scaring me. He wailed like a cat i…

Dear Wendy: “How Can I Tell My Sister Her Relationship Is Doomed?”

How do I tell my sister that she’s not going to get what she ultimately wants out of her boyfriend? My sister has been dating a very good guy for over two years, and I know she wants him to be her husband and the father of her children. However, there are some roadblocks. They…

Is Having A Sister Better Than Having A Brother?

It strikes me as interesting that a short but sweet essay on the benefits of having a sister, called “Why Sisterly Chats Make People Happier,” has been one of the most popular articles on The New York Times website for over a week. The essay is in response to a recent Brigham Young University study…

Stupid Study Says Guys With Lots Of Sisters Aren’t Sexy!

In a dream world, where my uterus wasn’t running out of time, childbirth was painless, and kids behaved like angels, I would have four kids: three girls, one boy. Unfortunately, in the real world, my son, having grown up surrounded by girls, would be viewed as “less sexy” by women as an adult. That’s according…

Girl Talk: My Sisters, My Friends

It was just my sister, my boyfriend and me at the tapas bar. Over Spanish food and mojitos, we were laughing and drinking. Like any night I can liberate her from small, crying children, I considered it a success. Then my boyfriend rose to head to the restroom and my sister lurched her head acro…

Mind Of Man: What My Sister Taught Me

My big sister’s favorite game to play with me as a child was a simple one that I’ll just call “Lure John into the dark basement, then race up the stairs and lock the door.” It was a game that I always lost, and she always won. I’d beg her to open the door, and…

Dear Sister: Maybe You Will Be Alone Forever

I’d like to say I don’t know why you’re letting him back into your life and bask in that ignorance, but I do know why. You’re almost 35 now and want nothing more than a flesh-and-blood child of your own with a man you love—more than you wanted that master’s degree, that great job you…

I Love You Like A Sister

Women can frequently be heard exclaiming, “I love her like a sister!” I shake my head. No, you can’t love your best friend like a sister. A sister’s love is separate from any other kind of love. A sister knows not only your entire history, but also what your thoughts and emotions were at every…

The Frisky Gift Guide: Gifts For Your BFFs and BSFs

What would you do without your girl friends and sisters? If it weren’t for them, you probably wouldn’t know about threading as a form of hair removal, would never have received an invitation to Gilt Groupe, and would have to watch “The Notebook” DVD alone every time. You better get your girls some good stuff…
