  HOLD THE PHONE. OMG. I’m really glad I decided to keep watching this season. Everything that I thought was lacking in the premiere seemed to be in the very intense second episode, so I'm a very happy fangirl. This episode returned to all the things I love about OUAT. The seven dwarves bring it upon themselves to find out what happens beyond Storybrooke. Poor Sneezy is the one to draw the short stick, and after crossing the border, Grumpy and the ... Read More
Let’s be real here. Reality TV, though lucrative for TV networks, usually doesn’t have a lot to offer the general public, other than something to mindlessly run in front of our eyeballs while we try to forget that today happened. But hark! A beam of intelligent, inspiring reality TV is shining through the mass of "People With Lots of Babies" shows! Sundance Channel’s Push Girls documents the life of best friends Tiphani, Auti, Angela, and Mia. ... Read More
Tonight, I will be doing one of three things: high-fiving a million angels, working on my night cheese, or crying out of my mouth. I might even do them all at the same time. Why? Because tonight, the first episode of the final season of 30 Rock airs. While I'm looking forward to the new season, I'm devastated that it's over. In times of great strife like these, I feel that I must turn to music and/or dairy products for consolation. Luckily, BUST covergirl Tina Fey ... Read More
  An awesome local news anchor from La Crosse, Wisconsin, Jennifer Livingston, fired back after receiving an email from a man criticizing her appearance.  The author admitted to not even being an avid viewer of the news program, but for some reason felt compelled to send her an email bashing her body.  In his email, very unfortunately and idiotically titled ‘Community responsibility’, he called her obese and even went so far as to say, ...

I have had a lengthy love affair with Once Upon A Time, so you can imagine how stoked I was to see the season premiere on Sunday night.  Sadly, I was a little let down. If you’re new to the show, here's the plot: An evil queen (the one who poisoned Snow White with the apple) trapped all of the fairy-tale characters in modern-day Storybrooke, Maine, in which they are unaware of their magical powers and who they really are in the alternate world. The ...

If you haven't seen the debut episode of BUST covergirl Mindy Kaling's new show, The Mindy Project, you probably need to drop everything you're doing right now and get in the loop. As Mindy's same-name character tells a five-year-old in the first episode: "You're boring. Contribute something!" And contribute we have - everyone's been recapping, buzzing, and writing critically about the show for the past week after FOX streamed the show early. We'll be ... Read More
Fall means one thing to me: New Girl is back on FOX! I’ve been waiting all summer to see what’s up with my favorite manic-pixie-nightmare-girl, Jessica Day (played by former BUST cover girl Zooey Deschanel). Turns out, she hasn't been up at all. The premiere began with Jess oversleeping, in typical Jess-blunder fashion, and subsequently running through the apartment attempting to get ready for work.  Then we had the pleasure of hearing Nick sing a ...

Can women tolerate more pain than men? Though Mythbusters has already weighed in on the side of lady endurance, one brave doctor has decided to take the experiment even further.  After all, says Dr. Andrew Rochford, “there’s not one man in the world who's been through the most painful experience of them all: childbirth." Guided by an obstetrician, Dr. Rochford decided to personally undergo simulated labor pains through low-voltage ... Read More
You should watch this hilarious promo for actress/director/producer Penny Marshall’s new (and very real) memoir, My Mother Was Nuts--but don't blame us if you break a rib laughing. Fred Armisen dresses in drag to play the amazing Ms. Marshall (who we interview in the upcoming issue of BUST!). This isn’t the first time Fred and Penny have teamed up to make us giggle. Marshall guest-starred in the second season of Portlandia, which Armisen ... Read More
Sometimes, when I read about whatever horrible thing televangelist Pat Robertson has said lately, my first instinct is to laugh — so much of what Robertson says seems straight out of the Onion. I saw this graphic going around on Tumblr recently and promptly burst into hysterical giggles: YOU GUYS, FEMINISTS ARE LESBIAN COMMUNIST WITCHES WHO GO AROUND MURDERING MEN AND CHILDREN!!!! But once I calm down, I remember that Robertson is an active political ... Read More
