As soon as she stepped on the stage of Joe's Pub last night, Meow Meow had the audience roaring in applause, showering her with flowers and cheers. With her single red glove, sequin dress, and lengthy lashes, she transported her audience to 1940's Germany or turn-of-the-century France within instants. Described as an act of "kamikaze cabaret and performance art exotica", she certainly brought us an unforgettable evening of old-fashioned entertainment with a ... Read More
    Lynda Carter made television history when she played Wonder Woman from 1975-1979. Can such an iconic portrayal ever be lived up to? It will have to be, because word is out that David E. Kelley, creator of "The Practice", "Ally McBeal", and "Boston Legal", is on board with Warner Bros for the return of a Wonder Woman TV series. Little is known regarding details of the show, except that it might focus more on Wonder Woman's alter ego, Diana Prince, as ... Read More

BUST cover woman Helen Mirren promoted more than just her upcoming film, "Red", when she went on NBC's show "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" recently. Fallon challenged our Dame to the popular college game of beer-pong, and she proved to be a great sport as she poured three cups into one and dutifully "chugged" when Fallon scored.  "He nearly got my other cup," she joked when Fallon missed a play that hit her on the chest, followed by, "I'm never very good ...

    It is 2010 and I read an article the other day in the New York Times about how women are still dealing with the disparity in wages, a battle the women at Ford's Dagenham assembly plant fought, and supposedly won, in 1968. Their struggles, and their victories, are honored in Nigel Cole's new film, "Made in Dagenham", a British comedy coming to us this fall. The film recounts the true story of the 187 sewing machinists who protested being classed as ... Read More
    I had the pleasure of watching singer/writer/comedian Mindy Raf perform as her alter ego, Leibya Rogers, on Saturday night at Arlene's Grocery in New York City. The act consisted of vegan feminist multi-talented live performer, Leibya, using songs, sounds, and some interpretive dancing to tell us about herself and her beliefs. Among my favorites was a love song to Katie Holmes, with lyrics like, "I'll let you scream real loud when you're in labor", a ... Read More

    One of the appeals of accessorizing is that we can use ourselves as an outlet for artistic expression, re-designing an entire look with a necklace or making a statement with a brooche. At an early age, especially in educational environments where girls are required to wear identical uniforms, jewelry and accessories are how we express our individuality.  Appropriately, the word jewelry can be traced back to the Latin word jocale, meaning ...

Search "Betty White" on youtube and amidst clips of her referring to Sarah Palin as a "crazy bitch" on Craig Ferguson's show, making fun of the Facebook-mania when she hosted Saturday Night Live, and calling herself a whore on The George Lopez Show, you will now find a recently released promotional video for her clothing line, a collection of t-shirts and hoodies sporting images of Betty's very own face.
