How to Be Single is cute but predictable romantic comedy

Because I thought that Trainwreck was a train wreck, I went to see How to Be Single with a large dose of skepticism. Ignoring the fact that I could have written the damn movie myself, I was interested to see what was in store. Some spoilers are ahead, because you probably know how this is […]

The importance of remembering that fantasy football is, in fact, fantasy

Picture it: Houston on Nov. 1. I am watching score and stat updates at the bottom of the TV screen. I’m in town for a family wedding, so am stuck watching the Texans game. But, the day before, after agonizing over whether to start Andy Dalton or Eli Manning, I finally went with Dalton. He’d been more […]

This week’s Twitter bitch slap: Khloe Kardashian vs. Amy Schumer

During her monologue hosting Saturday Night Live this past weekend, Amy Schumer took a dig or two at the Kardashians. gave us the rundown — because they have a minimum number of Kardashian posts to hit per day, which I am pretty sure hovers around 25. Look at Kylie in her sports bra, isn’t she […]

‘Trainwreck’ is an actual disaster

Trainwreck opened this past weekend, finishing third at the box office, and I can’t remember the last time I was as excited to see a movie. But after watching it, I felt very confused. Kind of like when you are SUPER pumped for a first date and your friend brings, like, 12 dresses to your […]

Going out alone? It’s okay, you should do it and here’s why

Recently, an article in the Washington Post‘s Wonkblog discussed our hesitancy to do things alone — be it going to the movies, a museum, or even dinner. This hesitance was mostly based out of fear of others’ perceptions of us. Oh, she’s eating alone, she must be: But a study outlined in the Wonkblog post showed that […]

My March Madness: Four days, four brackets, one sad panda

For college basketball fans, March Madness is the greatest time of year. Hours upon hours of tournament analysis go out the window when a 3-seed loses to a 14-seed on the first day. Brackets get busted. People ask their three-year-old nieces to fill one out just as a basis for comparison. Your co-worker wins the […]

40 years of ‘SNL,’ one favorite cast member: Chris Farley

Saturday Night Live is celebrating 40 years this season. When I look back and think about my favorite cast member, it’s a choice I came to in a roundabout way. I didn’t watch SNL on a regular basis until I was in high school, and mostly the last two years, so the late 90s, if you’re […]

‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Recap: FINALLY THE FINALE

The Celebrity Apprentice two-hour “live” season finale was about an hour and 45 minutes too long. I put “live” in quotations because, yes, the winner was revealed live and Trumpet brought back all the fired celebs in order to patronize them live and Kenya Moore went out of her way to kiss Ivanka Trump’s ass […]

Why I will not read or watch ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Writing is hard. Wait, I’m sorry. Writing WELL is hard. I hope to do it one day. But I know what I like, and I know what I don’t, and when Twilight first came out, I immediately filed that under “Just Say No” and moved on with my life. Rumor had it that it was […]

‘Celebrity Apprentice’ recap: Three become two

For the sake of disclosure, I should mention I’ve been watching Celebrity Apprentice episodes online after the fact so I can bring to you all my amazing screen shots. Therefore, I skipped episode seven, because it was a thrown together episode of worst firings, performances, etc, and not relevant to THIS season. Episode eight picks […]

‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Recap: Let’s fire everyone

I’m not sure why, but this week’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice was the hardest to watch. It lacked any sort of… anything. Oh wait, I DO know why — because I realized this show lacks any and all credibility, and I’ll elaborate on that later. The first task was to create a photobomb campaign for […]
