If we're to believe commercials, diverse groups of lady friends love nothing more than sitting around in yoga pants, having in-depth discussions about their two fave topics: birth control and yogurt. If you've noticed this trend, or even if you're blissfully unaware, this fake yogurt commercial from Yahoo! is a must-watch, not just because it is a damn hilarious parody of marketing ploys directed at women, then because you need (NEED) to see Weird Al’s face at the end of the vid. Pure comedy gold, I tell you. Read More
In this video, Tina Fey gives us a tour of Liz Lemon’s office. I know what you’re thinking. “I want to go to there.” And so do we! (Duh.) There are tons of great knick-knacks and random wonderful Liz-esque things, but most importantly, she talks about the framed copy of BUST on her wall! We first noticed that she had our October/November 2006 issue starring beloved Amy Poehler on the front cover on display a few years back. Now she’s here to talk about it, along with beloved memories from Liz’s office. Read More
Still coping with Liz & Dick PTSD (symptoms include nausea, The Parent Trap nostalgia, and occasionally screaming, “I’m bored!” for no apparent reason)?  Luckily, Lifetime’s found a way to make it up to you. On February 2nd Lifetime will air Betty & Coretta, an original movie about, according to this new promo, freedom, friendship, and a bunch of fantastic pantsuits. The film follows the lives of Coretta Scott King, played by Angela Bassett, and Betty Shabazz, played, divalicious-ly no doubt, by Mary J. Blige. Read More
With over 37, 400 signatures and counting, New York writer Sabrina Lamb has succeeded in getting Oxygen to drop their heinous show proposal “All My Babies’ Mamas.” The cancelled show would have followed Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo and his eleven children with their ten mothers. The Parents Television Council said the show was “grotesquely irresponsible and exploitative.” When Lamb first saw a promotion for the program, her “blood curdled.” She was especially concerned with the embarrassment the children would face for entertainment’s sake.

It turns out that Portlandia star Fred Armisen has an excellent Ira Glass impression in his arsenal of celebrity impersonations. Armisen delivered his best Ira Glass act on Glass's own NPR show, This American Life. The impression is also featured in a web exclusive out from NBC. Armisen's portrayal of Glass was scripted into a "Weekend Update" segment on SNL, but nixed after the audience didn't find it funny enough. Be sure to check out the video, as well as the prologue from their episode of This American Life. Read More
What’s been missing on TV? More reality shows centered around about people being mean to each other. Yes, having a bad girl or boy that's easy to hate makes for good entertainment. There are loads of scripted shows out there based on revenge, that include pranking; and any story involving love is going to have it’s fair share of drama. But when did we find the need to see the reality of this? Well, the Oxygen Network thinks this is exactly what we were missing. Read More
It’s back. Lena Dunham’s much-discussed, often-criticized, critically adored, game-changing TV series Girls will finally return to HBO this Sunday, 1/13. It’s no secret that BUST wants to make one hundred babies with Lena, but some staffers fretted that the show’s second season might not live up to the ever-growing hype surrounding it. To say we were eagerly anticipating Girls’ return is an understatement. So when the season-two screener (of the first four episodes, at least) arrived at BUST HQ, I essentially tackled a coworker to grab it. Read More

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for The Amazing Kreskin, the world’s greatest mentalist. I remember first being mystified by his mind-reading tricks during one of his 61 appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the ’70s. And when I discovered earlier this year that Hulu had made multiple episodes of his ’70s Canadian TV show The Amazing World of Kreskin available online, I devoured all the conversations on the occult he had with luminaries of the era like Phyllis Diller, Dr. Joyce Brothers, and Loretta Swit.
