I opened Hulu out of boredom (I obviously live a very productive life) and was unexpectedly greeted by a screen of some of my favorite lady comedy actresses and the premise that they would all be spoofing one of my favorite guilty pleasures: the Real Housewives. Holy moly! The comedy series, The Hot Wives of Orlando, was dropped on Hulu Orange is The New Black style, meaning Hulu released all six episodes and a “reunion special” at once. Read More

Clear your plans, set your DVRs and pop some popcorn. Hillary’s on "The Daily Show" tonight. Airing at 11 pm EST, Clinton and Jon Stewart will discuss her new book, Hard Choices, and hopefully we’ll catch some hints about a 2016 Presidential run (fingers crossed!!!).
It’s super strategic that Clinton is appearing on Stewart’s Emmy award-winning show; according to a study done by the Brookings Institution, it is one of the most trusted news sources for Americans. In fact, for Democrats and Liberals, it barely beats out MSNBC. Read More

It was your average summertime Friday night, when a lack of money and available activities led to another sweat-band-hair-tie-chillin-with-no-makeup-on movie night. After scanning through the available selections, my friends and I decided on “The To Do List” the “Valentines Day”-esque movie, that seemed to feature a character from almost every single Emmy-nominated TV series.

Street harassment is nothing new. Kat, of the Youtube vlog TheeKatsMeoww, totally nails it in her recent vlog about why women can’t even eat on the street without their actions being sexualized.
Isn’t that ridiculous? There is literally no reason why eating food, something which every human being on the planet does to stay alive should be sexualized.
Way to go, Kat, for making another amazing and totally on-point video!
Have you experienced street harassment when you were eating? Share in the comments!

Looks like sexual predators in the public eye have been getting their comeuppance lately. This time the culprit was Skyler Page, creator of the animated series Clarence on Cartoon Network. We don't often hear of big studios (television is a bit of a boy's club it seems) firing employees for committing sexual assault, but the Network surprised us by firing him after another employee, Emily Partridge, revealed that he had sexually assaulted her. Partridge is a storyboard revision artist for Adventure Time. Read More

Whether it's witchcraft or bitchcraft, when it comes to television and film anything involving wizardry and badass ladies is completely up my alley - however many of these characters come in Sabrina Spellman blonde-hair-blue-eyed packages. Read More

Redemption Trail is a story that unfolds slowly with a certain inevitability; set on a rural vineyard in Oakland, it doesn’t seem like the world exists outside the fences of the warm, summery fields. Whatever happens within this world is fated to happen. Written and directed by Britta Sjogren, the movie focuses on two women that force each other to face their demons while forgiving themselves in the process.
Tess (Lisa Gay Hamilton) lives hermetically on her employer’s vineyard; seemingly afraid of nothing, she lives within a shell of unresolved anger. Read More

Saturday Night Live's, Vanessa Bayer, plays a fake media coach named “Janessa Slater” on a YouTube talk show Sound Advice. Let me tell you, it is freakin’ amazing and I seriously don't know how am I just finding out about this...
Similar to Galifianakis’ comedic talk show, Between Two Ferns, Bayer (or I should say Slater), mocks her guests in a way that only makes herself look bad. Today she has a meeting with Tegan and Sara, tells them that they should switch names and asks them if they have seen the TV show “Sister Sister”. Read More

Prepare to welcome Beyoncé into your home once again, Beyhive! Following her outrageously successful Life Is But a Dream, where she garnered HBO its biggest documentary premiere since 2004, Beyoncé is partnering with HBO once again. Luckily, for those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to be graced with Queen Bey’s presence in person at "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour", she’s releasing Beyoncé: X10. Read More

Did you sit and stare blankly at a wall of your room yesterday, wondering what regular people do with their lives without Game of Thrones on Sunday nights? Yeah, me too. That’s why I ordered this bad boy, among other reasons (no spoilers), on Etsy last week to sport in honor of my favorite lady of Westeros, Ygritte.
After I got TONS of great feedback, I decided to put together a list of other great handmade Game of Thrones merch made by women, for women.
