The Sad Truth: Pretty Girls Get Free Stuff

Carolyn Owlett pulled her hair back into a ponytail, threw on a frumpy skirt, and walked around London asking if she could have everything for free, from a bus ride to a piece of cake. Most people looked at her like she was crazy. Then she curled her hair into shiny ringlets, put on makeup, a tight dress, and high heels, and did the same thing. Most people looked at her … and then gave her whatever she wanted. The results of her one-woman experiment are depressing, but also fascinating to watch. Would you agree with her findings? Have you witnessed the ways society rewards conventionally beautiful women or experienced them firsthand? [Bright Hands Pictures via Vimeo]

Meghan McCain Lashes Back At Glenn Beck For Fat-Shaming

Dang it, Meghan McCain is really making me like her! The conservative up-and-comer visited “The Tonight Show” on Monday and spoke out about vile Glenn Beck, who devoted several minutes of barf noises on his radio show to fat-shaming McCain after she posed in a nude bodysuit for a skin cancer PSA. “No man will ever make me a victim, least of all Glenn Beck!” McCain said, wagging her finger in the air and laughing. You go, girl! Keep reading »

Melissa McCarthy Reveals The Secret Inspiration For Her “Bridesmaids” Character


By now you’ve probably heard — or seen for yourself — that “Bridesmaids” is totally hilarious and Melissa McCarthy, who plays tomboyish and frisky Megan, is clearly the breakout star of the film. On last night’s “Conan,” she revealed the celebrity inspiration for her character: None other than spiky-haired chef Guy Fieri. “Every scene I would have my glasses on the back of my head,” McCarthy explained. “I tried for a long time to convince them to let me wear short, white, spiky hair, and they were like, ‘You can’t actually be Guy Fieri.’” It makes so much sense!

World’s Worst Mother: “16 And Pregnant” Teen’s Mom Takes The Cake


We’ve grown used to seeing irresponsible teens and bad parenting on the MTV show “16 And Pregnant,” and that’s part of what makes it such a compelling and powerful watch. It teaches cocky adolescents that having a baby is more than just dressing infants in cute clothes and parading a kid around in a stroller at the park. But on last night’s special 1.5-hour long episode of the show, featuring anorexic pregnant teen Kayla, Kayla’s mother Deb was the truly horrific parent.

Kayla’s anorexia and struggle with her eating disorder made her pregnancy doubly difficult. Her complex and uncomfortable feelings about her body had her skipping meals and unwilling and unable to eat food, even though she knew taking in nutrients was absolutely necessary for the health of her child. But despite several close calls, and a complete lack of support from her mother, Kayla gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Over and over, we see Kayla express — in an articulate and nuanced way — how her eating disorder has skewed her brain’s ability to do what’s right for her baby. But then, just weeks after giving birth, and knowing that her daughter had long-struggled with anorexia, Deb asks her daughter to go on a diet with her. Keep reading »

So, “Girls Run The World,” Beyonce? Not So Much!


Beyonce’s new video for her song “Girls (Run the World)” features some sweet dance moves — not to mention likely suspicious Illuminati imagery! — but is its message a tad, um, premature? I’m obsessed with this video from vlogger Nineteen Percent which breaks down the many ways in which Beyonce’s lady power victory anthem just ain’t true. It’s funny, it’s distressing, and it’s a brilliant way to use pop music as a “great tie-in to a discussion of feminism.” Kick ass! [YouTube] Keep reading »

Bert Gets Down To Brass Tacks With Andy Samberg


Who knew that Bert, as in the best friend of Ernie, was such a hard-hitting interviewer? In this edition of “Conversations with Bert,” his version of “Inside the Actors Studio,” the yellow guy talks to Andy Samberg of “Saturday Night Live.” While Bert missed the obvious question of asking about his threeway with Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga, he did ask how Andy feels about socks. “From my perspective, anyone who has a problem with socks needs to grow up. It’s been a long time coming. Socks are here to stay, and people who are anti-sock, to me, it’s immature, it’s short sighted — short minded,” replied Andy. To which Ernie added: “One day I’m hoping every sock will meet its match.” The rest of the interview is equally as amusing. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
