Bad Mom Advice: Your Biting Toddler And Your Makeup Hoarding Teen Make Me Think You Need To Chill The Eff Out

Bad Mom Advice: Your Biting Toddler And Your Makeup Hoarding Teen Make Me Think You Need To Chill The Eff Out

I can’t give you any advice for talking your daughter out of wearing it because I just don’t feel like it’s that big of an issue. It’s not like a little bit of blush and mascara is suddenly going to make her become knocked up at age 15 or something. As long as she isn’t emulating Courtney Stodden and asking for an increase on her allowance to take on-line “acting” classes, I think she’ll be fine. More »

Chief Justice John Roberts’ ‘Friendship’ Analogy At The SCOTUS Same-Sex Marriage Trial Was Actually Apt

Chief Justice John Roberts' 'Friendship' Analogy At The SCOTUS Same-Sex Marriage Trial Was Actually Apt

This week, all eyes are on the Supreme Court as it hears arguments against the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Prop 8. The implications are huge, with the possibility that every state in America will have to grant marriage rights to couples regardless of sexual orientation. But a peculiar question arose from Chief Justice John Roberts that has supporters of marriage equality concerned. Here’s our take on it. More »

Real Housewives’ Kordell ‘You Need To Choose Between A Baby And A Career’ Stewart Is Divorcing Porsha Williams

Real Housewives' Kordell 'You Need To Choose Between A Baby And A Career' Stewart Is Divorcing Porsha Williams

I was somewhere in the most recent season of Real Housewives of Atlanta when Porsha Williams had a tense conversation with husband Kordell Stewart. He was lecturing her on why she needed to choose between having a baby or a career à la Mad Men, while also implying that he would not assist in the childrearing — nor would they be hiring a nanny. I was thinking to myself, “Wow! She’s crying and looks really unhappy. She should totes divorce that guy.”

Turns out that guy is totes divorcing her. More »

Douchey Egyptian Police General Says Girls Are Capable Of Contributing ’100 Percent’ To Their Own Rapes

Douchey Egyptian Police General Says Girls Are Capable Of Contributing '100 Percent' To Their Own Rapes

While we’re seemingly all about holding pep rallys for adults who fail to report rapes in the United States, over in Cairo, the victim-blame-y script isn’t much different. In fact, it seems that for everyone stateside who talks about women and girls “preventing rape,” there’s some tool on the other side of the world espousing the same nonsense. Like a police general and lawmaker in Cairo who says girls need to somehow scrounge up ALL the responsibility for being violated. Holy Victim Blaming, Batman!

Breaking Kim Kardashian Pregnancy News: You WON'T Believe What She Is Craving!

I would rather hear about women who broke down in tears because they had to have a certain type of Trader Joe’s cookie or sustained their pregnancies off eating ripe avocados and Wheat Thins or something. When I was knocked up, I wanted really nutritional and easy-to-obtain things like the burnt sugar off of Creme Brûlée or blood oranges that weren’t in season or sticky Szechuan beef at 3 a.m. More »

Steubenville Plans Uplifting Pep Rally For Coach Reno As He Faces Allegations He Failed To Report A Rape

Steubenville Plans Uplifting Pep Rally For Coach Reno As He Faces Allegations He Failed To Report A Rape

No one is disputing that Coach Reno Saccoccia is a very good football coach, but due to the fact he may have known (And if we are going on the text messages presented in court, that he DID know) that some of his star players had raped a girl and he kept them on the team for eight more games, I can’t quite wrap my mind around the idea of celebrating this man who is facing some extremely serious allegations.

Halle Berry Will Pursue Her 'I'm Just Going To Run Away To France' Fantasy After She Unloads Her Kid

If Halle Berry and myself had our way, we’d pack our bags and split for France. The only difference between us is that she has a hot French fiancé (working on it) and an ex who isn’t about to let her take his daughter across the pond. But Halle hasn’t given up on her dreams as much as she’s adding them to the retirement plan. Way to switch it up, Halle. More »
