You might not be recording Lifetime’s new reality makeover show, Girlfriend Intervention. And that’s okay. What you should watch, though, is the hilarious parody below.
The tagline for the original show is pretty self-explanatory: “Inside every white girl is a strong black woman ready to bust out.” So, four experts assist with the usual lifestyle improvement that has been the norm since Stacy and Clinton were telling you What Not to Wear: ... Read More
Self-described writer, comedian, and cheeseburger aficionado, Megan MacKay, presents her witty censure of Ray Rice and the NFL via another clever makeup tutorial.
If you like this one, check out her youtube channel where she roasts Hobby Lobby and other gender-offenders weekly. Her videos are especially bold because the acerbic one-liners attacking misogyny are delivered with an eyeshadow brush. There are a lot of layers here: she is defending ... Read More

To be completely honest, Joan Rivers was never my favorite comedienne. Her hard-hitting jokes, told mostly at the expense of famous others (when they weren’t at her own expense) were too sharp-tongued for my taste. I thought of Rivers as overly venomous, sometimes tactless, and largely inappropriate.
It wasn’t until I heard of her passing that I realized my latent admiration. In fact, it was the very dislike of her comedy that caused me to like her most; she ... Read More

Yesterday I went to Hannah Hart’s book signing at the Housing Works Bookstore on a whim and had my mind blown. I’m honestly still picking up the pieces.
I first watched Hannah’s Youtube series “My Drunk Kitchen” in 2011, after just moving away from my parents for the first time to start college. I remember feeling so awkward and insecure as I tried to adjust to my new environment and all these new faces and names that all had ... Read More
Julia Louis-Dreyfus' recent performance on Monday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" showcased just how good of an actress the Seinfeld and Veep star really is.
Apparently Kimmel enjoys pranking his viewers after he perfectly fooled the entire Internet a few months ago with his "Worst Twerk Fail EVER - Girl Catches On Fire!" video. (I found out about that video because a few dear friends forwarded it to me with the caption "This reminds me of ... Read More
Kathy Griffin is far from subtle; seriously, you don’t want to get on her bad side. The saucy comedian will skewer anyone who crosses her with her quick wit and biting tongue. Turns out, she won’t only stick up for herself. Womankind, Kathy Griffin has our backs.
And who has crossed some awesome lady celebs this week? No surprise: Perez Hilton. We all know about that time he totally violated Ke$ha’s privacy by posting intimate ... Read More
I have loved Amy Sedaris ever since I read The Book of Liz, a play of hers in which a nun with a perspiration problem finds herself by making cheese balls. The veteran BUST cover girl fascinates me, from her perky humor to her real cultural impact (she supports animal rights and has outspokenly defended her choice not to have kids). Even in her Downy laundry detergent commercial, she is hilarious and complex, dressing like a 1950s housewife to do ... Read More

The London Olympics are coming to a close. After all that excitement and preparation, it’s pretty crazy that it’ll be done in just a few days. Luckily, we saw some amazing athletes rise to the occasion and they’re bringing back a lot of gold to America.
While those Olympic athletes were giving every competition their all, they were also giving us some enormous laughs, albeit unintentionally. Here are the best internet sensations, memes and ... Read More

Famously peeved funny lady Joan Rivers has a new source for her unbridled (and often hysterical) ire. This time, it’s the wholesale super store Costco that's under fire. What did the bulk supplier do to make the queen of mean so darn mad?
They’re not selling her book, I Hate Everyone...Starting with Me, due to some “offensive” content. Shame on you Los Angeles Costco! How dare you? The 79-year-old badass (who talks about her book in ... Read More
