First, parents petitioned to get Breaking Bad figurines removed from Toys R’ Us because they felt it set a bad example. Now, another parent has started a petition to get clothes from the Kardashion Kids line removed from Babies R’ Us because she feels they are “damaging.” Next, I will start a petition to remove the color “Mustard Yellow” from everywhere because it is ugly, and it offends me. After all, the world needs to conform to my tastes and opinions, right? No? Oh. More

There’s been so much horrific information surfacing about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Matriarch Mama June that it doesn’t even seem possible that there could be more. There is. She has a history of dating sex offenders. This story is a never-ending mess.
The big day finally arrived and I can tell you with a creepy Jim Bob gleam in my eye that it was everything I had dreamed of and more. Much like Jill, I have been eagerly awaiting this event for months. Obviously not for the same reasons, but I digress. Let’s get started- there is so much here and it’s all just absolutely delicious. It’s time for the 19 Kids And Counting wedding episode we have all been waiting for! More
TLC has cancelled popular reality showÂ Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in light of the recent allegations that the show’s matriarch is dating a convicted child molester. I have a renewed faith in reality TV. More
We heard the news yesterday of outraged mommy Susan Schrivjer gathering signatures on a petition to have Breaking Bad figurines removed from shelves at Toys R Us because of their inappropriateness for children. Never mind the fact that Toys R Us has always stocked “adult” figurines for adult collectors, THINK OF THE CHILDREN! More
Let’s be clear: we as a society don’t have a problem with plastic surgery. We have a problem when someone has plastic surgery and fails to convince us they didn’t. No one has a problem with the fact that women in Hollywood are expected to look younger and younger every year – we only have a problem with being reminded that it is not a completely natural state.

You may have heard that Toys R’ Us has started selling Breaking Bad action figures in their stores. There’s a Jesse Pinkman and a Walter White, there’s a Heisenberg with a gun, there are orange jumpsuits, and there is some adorable teeny tiny meth-making equipment. I think it’s fantastic, but one Florida (damn it, Florida!) mom disagrees with me and has started a petition on Change.org to have them removed from store shelves. More
It’s a big day for the Duggar-Dillard clan! After 18 weeks of updates on registering for orange soda, horking for the Lord and writing out Bible verses to read on index cards during labor (because THAT will happen) we have finally found out the news that Jill is gestating a bouncing, Duggar-Dillard baby boy!
Hey, here’s a new concern about kids and technology that I’ve never thought about before but should have! Turns out there is a real relationship between self-esteem and the Like button. I’ve been so worried about my kids not hooking up with pedophiles that I haven’t even thought about what social media will mean to their feelings about themselves. The number of “Likes” they get or “Friends” they have is a numerical, measurable way to assess their popularity and worth. Huzzah, the internet!
I’m so sorry because last week, I totally misled you guys when I said that the Duggar-Dillard nuptial episode of 19 Kids And Counting would be this week. The previews said something about “a wedding special” and an hour-long episode. The hour-long part was true but the episode was not the wedding. The Duggars continue to tease us and make us wait. Dammit, Jim Bob. More
I have a bone to pick withÂ Gideon and Harper, twin children ofÂ Neil Patrick HarrisÂ andÂ David Burtka. They need to stop growing up. They just keep getting older and older, with absolutely no regard for our feelings. They canâ€™t just be babies one day and then suddenly be able to walk and talk and wear button-down shirts the next. That means time is actually moving, and weâ€™re all getting older, and even though it feels like you were 12 yesterday, youâ€™re an adult now with adult responsibilities, and you are not a celebrity kid with a celebrity life. How dare they do this to us? More
Single ladies everywhere, rejoice! Steve Harvey started a dating site — all of your worries are over! It’s called Delightful, and all you have to do to use it is turn off the part of your brain that actually thinks logically, and believe all his stereotypical garbage advice is true. Then you can hopefully find a man who wants to date you! Yay!
