Bea Arthur, Television’s Ballsiest Broad

Bea Arthur passed away over the weekend at the age of 86. Sadness. Everything I needed to know about scathing wit I learned from Dorothy Zbornak, who was my constant companion on TV throughout kidhood. “The Golden Girls” were funny and fierce, not letting age get in the way of a good time. The ladies sipped frozen drinks and laughed at all the curveballs life threw at them a decade before Carrie & Co. sexed up the city. After the jump, a look back at our favorite Bea Arthur moments.

Sarah Haskins On “Tough Love”

It’s a wonder the human race has survived this long. Why? Because women are single, crazy, and conniving. But if we all follow “Tough Love” matchmaker Steve Ward’s rules, we’ll end up living a life of bliss. And by bliss, I mean we’ll get hitched … and then divorced. Watch this video of Sarah Haskins taking on “Tough Love.” Normally, Steve’s rules make sense to me, but seeing him and the single women and hearing his rules put together in this clip makes me rethink everything.

Jessica Valenti Braves “The Today Show”

Jessica Valenti was on “The Today Show” this morning to promote her new book The Purity Myth. Instead of discussing her book in depth, the producers pitted her against abstinence education champion Lakita Garth in a debate moderated by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, who always looks slightly perplexed. The result was that Garth got way more speaking time, although Valenti held her own as best she could, and Kathie Lee positioned herself on the issue of virginity loud and clear. “It’s much easier to give it away than keep it, right?!” Keep reading »

    Perez Hilton & Miss California Face Off

    Perez Hilton and Miss California, Carrie Prejean, were on “The Today Show” this morning, talking about the controversy surrounding the beauty queen’s response to Hilton’s gay marriage question at Sunday’s Miss USA Pageant. On the show, Hilton was extremely well-spoken and made the argument that Miss California alienated many Americans with her anti-gay marriage response. Because Miss USA is supposed to represent all Americans, it cost her the crown. I’m not sure that I look to a beauty queen to represent me or my views to the world, but I get his point. When it was Prejean’s turn to speak, she said she spoke from her heart, and she stands by what she says, as it reflects her religious beliefs. I can kind of respect the woman for answering honestly, even though I personally disagree. But what about the fact that her response was poorly delivered? I mean, “opposite marriage”? As Hilton said, Miss California should have been better prepared for that question and had a coherent, if unpopular, answer ready to go. Keep reading »
