Hell Yes: ‘Mean Girls’ To Return To The Big Screen In ‘Mean Moms’ Reincarnation

Hell Yes: 'Mean Girls' To Return To The Big Screen In 'Mean Moms' Reincarnation

For most of the mid-2000s, I could have recited entire dialogue from Mean Girls for you on demand. In particular, I could spout entire scenes and exchanges between Queen Bee Regina George and my favorite of favorite characters, the pink track suit wearing wannabe BFF “cool mom” played by Amy Poehler. But now we may get to relive the pure amazingness of the Mean Girls dynamics all over again — as Mean Moms. OH YES. Bring on the sanctimommies! More »

‘Anti-Social Media’ App Will Help You Avoid All The Annoying Moms In Your ‘Hood

'Anti-Social Media' App Will Help You Avoid All The Annoying Moms In Your 'Hood

This graduate student from NYU probably didn’t have moms in mind when he made his “anti-social media” app, “Hell Is Other People.” I’m guessing he was trying to avoid an annoying classmate or ex-girlfriend when planning his weekend jaunts through the watering holes of NYC. He should target moms though, because they can be way more annoying than exes – and there is usually no booze to make a day at the park easier to endure.

Hollywood May Be Inspiring Our Kids To Read Actual Books

Hollywood May Be Inspiring Our Kids To Read Actual Books

I’ve been a reader for as long as I can remember. My face was always buried in a book. I can’t get my teenage step-daughter to read anything – unless it’s a caption under an Instagram selfie one of her friends has taken. That’s why I’m happy to hear that some Hollywood blockbusters that cater to teens may actually be spiking their interests in picking up a book. More »

Apple Loses $100 Million In Class Action Suit Because Our Kids Know How To Use Our Phones Better Than We Do

Apple has settled a $100 million class action suit with parents demanding they be paid back for purchases their kids made without their approval. I wish I could get on my high horse here and say, Hey idiot parents – control your children! It’s not Apple’s fault you can’t keep them away from your phone! But I would be pissed, too. More »

Halle Berry Testifies That Her 6-Year-Old Fears Death By Paparazzi When Pushing For Paparazzi Restrictions

Halle Berry Testifies That Her 6-Year-Old Fears Death By Paparazzi When Pushing For Paparazzi Restrictions

Pregnant Halle Berry has seemingly always been among celebrity parents who criticize our cultural celebrity obsession. Primarily because the tabloid-fueled frenzy makes for very harrowing experiences for their children. Perhaps that’s why when Halle Berry testified for an anti-paparazzi bill, she didn’t exactly hold back on how threatening the paparazzi presence is to her daughter Nahla. More »

Matthew Shepard’s Mom Feels Bittersweet About DOMA Ruling

Matthew Shepard's Mom Feels Bittersweet About DOMA Ruling

Amidst all the celebrating over the historic DOMA Supreme Court ruling, it’s worth noting those of us who didn’t live long enough to see today. Namely Matthew Shepard, who was notoriously lynched and left to die on a fence post — simply for being gay — back in 1998. Although his mother Judy Shepard champions the demise of DOMA, it’s understandably not all champagne and wedding registries for the mother. More »

Kristen Bell Just Proposed To Dax Shepard Post-DOMA Ruling And OMG, My Heart

This is probably my favorite thing I’ve read on the internet in recent memory, you guys, and that means a lot coming from someone who’s been doing dramatic readings of the Paula Deen deposition at her desk. I love this in a much less trainwreck-y, sad human type of way and in a much more ‘oh my goodness, life is beautiful and I believe in love’ kind of way. In the wake of the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on the grounds of its unconstitutionality today, Kristen Bell has just proposed to Dax Shepard, her longtime boyfriend and father of their adorable baby daughter Lincoln.
