(6) Comments | Posted December 22, 2011 | 1:06 PM

I'm a little late on the Christmas List this year, and for that, I apologize. But don't for a minute think that this means my demands are any less sincere, outrageous, or totally self-serving. Look, these are requests that I think will better Pop Culture as...

All Together Now! Simple. Sanitary. Vagina!

(10) Comments | Posted November 15, 2011 | 1:37 PM

It was on a brisk Saturday night in late September that I found myself at a classy cocktail party in Studio City, CA, mingling with an eclectic crowd and having a good laugh at vaginas.

(0) Comments | Posted September 27, 2011 | 5:42 PM

You could call me crazy and weird and bossy and nerdy and neurotic and definitely adorkable (thanks for mainstreaming my jam, New Girl marketing team) but one thing I am not is bitchy. So indulge me while I get bitched at and bitched out and then totally betchified by "The...

An Open Letter to Whoever Is Responsible for Dressing the Mannequins at Free People Stores

(1) Comments | Posted May 26, 2011 | 5:44 PM

Dear Sir or Madam (I have a sixth sense that the person who dresses mannequins for your nice clothing store is a lady, but as one should not make presumptions I shall not presume either way. And for what it's worth I think men are equally as capable of dressing...

Bridesmaids was funny. Super funny. Super duper funny. And it was about funny women! And it was written by funny women! And even better -- it was a success! A "smash success" as they call it -- so much so, there are now like 900 gazillion articles popping up everywhere...

(10) Comments | Posted May 6, 2011 | 3:49 PM

Full disclosure: I've never watched an episode of Law & Order in my entire life. Not one. And frankly, I never had any plans to. That is until... John Stamos guest-starred! That's right -- there's no way your resident expert on all things Stamos, aka me, the other Stamos, was...

For the first portion of my conversation with Pose's Director of Marketing and Communication Alisa Gould-Simon, we discussed the innovative iPhone app exclusively. However, Alisa is a true trendsetter with some serious style knowledge, so there was no way I was going to miss an opportunity to talk...

John Stamos Is Back on Glee for a Little "Afternoon Delight" But It Could Be His Last

(0) Comments | Posted March 9, 2011 | 1:37 PM

After a noticeably long absence from the show, Dr. Carl, aka John Stamos, returned to Glee for more than a mere mention in this week's installment, appropriately titled 'Sexy.' John Stamos is sexy, make no mistakes (and it takes a Stamos to know a Stamos).

Whether he's rocking a...

FOMO, the Fear of Missing Out

(0) Comments | Posted February 2, 2011 | 12:46 PM

I'd like to alert everyone to a new epidemic sweeping the nation. No, I'm not talking about bed bugs or birds falling from the sky or the increase of wannabe Justin Bieber-hairdos on middle-aged male athletes and I'm certainly not referring to all the preteens who are snorting crushed Altoids.

Presenting a Completely Biased "Top 10 TV Shows of 2010" List

(0) Comments | Posted December 17, 2010 | 3:21 PM

Oh boy! Another Top 10 of 2010 List! But before we get into it, I'm going to be super honest with you: this list is biased. Completely biased.

Like, it's all my favorite TV shows of 2010, so whatever cred I bring as a "seasoned blogger" or "industry insider" or...

Can Somebody Give John Stamos His Own Show Already?

(12) Comments | Posted October 28, 2010 | 2:33 PM

If The Rocky Horror Picture Show is ever remade, let it be known that the official lobbying campaign for John Stamos as Eddie began with "The Rocky Horror Glee Show." Was this, in fact, a good episode of Glee? Who cares! John Stamos made his return as Dr. Carl in...

John Stamos Makes His Glee Debut As Dr. Carl, Raises Dentist Standards Everywhere

This week's episode of Glee might have been called "Britney/Brittany" but let's not forget the episode's other (and if you ask me, subtler-yet-also-brighter) shining star, John Stamos. And who better to critique/review/laud/examine the artist-formerly-known-as Uncle Jesse and his glorious debut than me, the other Stamos. So for the introduction of...

The Horrifying Return of Fall TV

(29) Comments | Posted September 20, 2010 | 9:15 PM

This is it.

The return of fall TV.

Finally, it's that very time of year I anticipate with about as much nervous excitement as abject horror.

Yes, horror. How in the world will I ever have time to watch all these shows? For example, on Thursday nights between...

Nicole Scherzinger is Brilliant -- Who Knew!?

(10) Comments | Posted August 9, 2010 | 1:40 PM

Never did I ever think I would refer to a member of The Pussycat Dolls as "brilliant." However, after catching Nicole Scherzinger far exceed and then blow out of the water any expectations in the Neil Patrick Harris-directed Rent at the Hollywood Bowl, I can't think of any other way...

Surely by now you know what Silly Bandz are. I imagine you've seen them adorning the wrists of hipsters and tweens alike. No, it's not a sudden explosion of colored rubber bands converted into jewelry, it's... oh wait. Yes, that's exactly what it is.

At Long Last, 'The Hills' Ends -- May All Those Starlets Return to the Recesses of Society From Whence They Came!

(3) Comments | Posted July 14, 2010 | 9:15 PM

If anything, the series finale of scripted-reality sensation The Hills further confirmed that while Brody Jenner is a douchebag, I want to have sex with him. Oh and also? This show was a lot more scripted and structured than many may have realized, myself included.

Truth be told, The Hills...
