A Very Brady Renovation Makes an Excellent Argument in Favor of Lance Bass

A Very Brady Renovation Makes an Excellent Argument in Favor of Lance Bass

In the summer of 2018, Lance Bass won the bid to buy the iconic ranch house that served as the exterior for the Brady Bunch’s abode. Bass ultimately lost his bid to forces larger than us all: HGTV, a corporate entity with deep pockets who snatched Bass’s dream up from under him in favor of one of its very own. The result of this transgression is A Very Brady Renovation, a strange four-part...

Everyone Should Watch a Wrestling Match Live Before They Die

Everyone Should Watch a Wrestling Match Live Before They Die

My only experience with professional wrestling is in the twelfth grade, when I had a crush on a football player who happened to really like the Rock. Because of my target’s passion, I engaged in the ultimately unrewarding activity of pretending to be into something for the interest of a man. I watched a wrestling program here and there. This feigned interest plus Hulk freaking...

Buckle the Fuck Up for the Lifetime College Admissions Scandal Movie Trailer

Buckle the Fuck Up for the Lifetime College Admissions Scandal Movie Trailer

Nothing pleases me more than when rich people do bad things and then are discovered, later, by the authorities, to be bad. The saga of Aunt Becky, her crime hat , Felicity Huffman, and the children of famous people who could not get into “good” colleges without some help is riveting. And now, finally, we have a trailer for the first of many TV movie adaptations about this debacle, and it is...

I Would Lay My Life on the Line for a Fizzgig from Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

I Would Lay My Life on the Line for a Fizzgig from Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance, Netflix’s 10-hour puppet high fantasy, is the sort of program that I often think I will like but actually don’t. Puppets are always funny, often unsettling, and rarely the sort of thing I can watch for more than 20 minutes at a time. I gave the show a shot one night and realized it was not for me—however, after seeing a promotional video of four...

Actually, Scrunchies Have Always Ruled

Actually, Scrunchies Have Always Ruled

Did you know scrunchies were in? Did you know that their recent reappearance is causing older millennial angst about the slow, unstoppable march of time? Were you aware that the thing you use to hold your hair out of your face is not just a hair tie, but an important and essential lens through which to view trends as a concept, lifestyle, and capitalist entity?

Arguably, anything in culture...

The 'Long Balls' on This Cat's Face Do Not Resemble a Penis

The 'Long Balls' on This Cat's Face Do Not Resemble a Penis

When any publication informs me that the “internet” has fallen in love with something, I am often skeptical. Rarely does the object of the internet’s collective affection deliver—but this cat, Daisy (no relation ), does in spades.

According to Page Six, the internet has lost its collective marbles over this fluffy lil’ scamp with markings on her precious face that, to some perverts, resembles...

Insane Pools: Off The Deep End Is the Best Show for a Lazy Weekend

Insane Pools: Off The Deep End Is the Best Show for a Lazy Weekend

The current offerings for home improvement reality television are overwhelming to the point of suffocation: a curse and also a blessing. There’s too much TV. But in that pile of shows about flipping garbage found at a flea markets and renovating extreme bathrooms, one can occasionally find a beautiful gem. Insane Pools: Off the Deep End is that gem. It’s my favorite show on television.

Why Do 'Choreplay' When You Can Just Have an Affair Instead?

Why Do 'Choreplay' When You Can Just Have an Affair Instead?

Married or otherwise committed people, are we bribing our partners with the promise of sweet sexual congress in order to get the dishes done? Honestly, are we? Is anyone? Hello?

“Choreplay” sounds like a nightmare concept dreamed up for a 50 Shades of Grey spin-off: simply put, it is an exchange of chores for sex, as reported by the New York Post in a recently-published trend piece that was...

The Last Popeyes Chicken Sandwich in America

The Last Popeyes Chicken Sandwich in America

Sometime in the middle of August, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen quietly launched a spicy chicken sandwich that gripped the nation. I first became aware of the sandwich thanks to Jezebel’s very own influencer, Clover Hope, who quietly shared with the group one day that she had tried a spicy chicken sandwich at Popeyes and that it was “very good.” Though Clover’s proclamations are usually correct...

Now That Baskets Is Over... What Was Baskets?

Now That Baskets Is Over... What Was Baskets?

Baskets, an FX show that ended Thursday night, is a program that, like many in the overcrowded prestige television space , I know only in passing. The ads for the most recent season—its final one—briefly plagued the subway station by my workplace: a melancholy Zach Galifianakis in clown makeup, gazing softly into the middle distance in a way that is meant to convey seriousness. I have never...

I Could Watch Bernie Sanders Play Competent Softball on a Loop Until I Die

I Could Watch Bernie Sanders Play Competent Softball on a Loop Until I Die

Bernie Sanders put his Brooklyn stickball training to good use on Tuesday by playing a fairly competent game of softball at Iowa’s Field of Dreams. Generally, these kinds of events feel forced, but please tell me if you don’t see a soupçon of fun and whimsy in Uncle Bernard’s astonishingly capable softball skills.

Swing for the fences, Bernard.

That’s a strike if I ever saw one!

Batter up.

Pig Beach Is Dead

Pig Beach Is Dead

Near and around the site of Ja Rule’s ill-fated Fyre Fest lies Grand Exuma, an island in the Bahamas that is home to a clutch of feral pigs and their small, feral piglets. These pigs have lived in relative peace, eating food thrown to them by tourists and rooting around in the sand and whatnot, but I regret to inform you that Pig Beach is dead.

This news comes courtesy of a tidy little

Look Who Decided to Show Up to the Party

Look Who Decided to Show Up to the Party

Hi Karen. I see you decided to show up, for once. Glad you found some time in your busy schedule to join us. Were we waiting for you? Not at all. I just put the spinach dip back in the oven to ensure that it would be hot and bubbly for you, just how you like it.

Yeah, yeah, I get it. You were up in the light fixture because that’s where you like to think—it’s quiet, you told me once, and...

How On Earth Did I Miss Chace Crawford's Enormous Dong in The Boys?

How On Earth Did I Miss Chace Crawford's Enormous Dong in The Boys?

The Boys is an Amazon Prime original series about superheroes breaking bad that I found myself enjoying recently against my own personal expectations. Generally, if I know anything about their backstory, superheroes are entertaining to me and the great thing about The Boys is that you don’t really have to know anything about them at all. Upon viewing, I was delighted to learn that Chace...

Odell Beckham Jr.'s Got a Very Nice Lamp

Odell Beckham Jr.'s Got a Very Nice Lamp

Here’s a nice picture of Odell Beckham Jr., one of the many beautiful, famous people featured in Calvin Klein’s underpants campaign. You know him, yeah? Football player for the Cleveland Browns, formerly of the New York Giants, and unfortunate target of Schmena Lunham’s laser focus at the Met Gala a few years ago. Anyway, just a chance to share a very nice picture of a VERY nice lamp.

Kim Cattrall Can't Stop Talking About Sex and the City 3, a Movie that Does Not Exist

Kim Cattrall Can't Stop Talking About Sex and the City 3, a Movie that Does Not Exist

For reasons unbeknownst, Kim Cattrall is still talking about Sex and the City 3, a movie that does not exist specifically because of her refusal to be involved. It seemed like we had come to the end of this particularly bumpy road sometime in the fall of 2017, but alas, here we are.

In a recent interview with the Guardian, Cattrall proffered the following statement about the ill-fated third...

Let's Fight About Which Ice Cream Treat Is the Best

Let's Fight About Which Ice Cream Treat Is the Best

Yesterday evening, after being trapped under the awning of a Duane Reade waiting out a brief thunderstorm, I took myself to the deli on the corner and bought a perfect summer treat: a king-sized Drumstick, triple chocolate, slightly freezer-burnt, and utterly delicious.

This treat is my second-favorite of the ubiquitous ice cream treats—the sort that can be procured from an ice cream truck or...

No One Wanted to Hear What Rosanna Arquette Had to Say About Being 'White and Privileged'

No One Wanted to Hear What Rosanna Arquette Had to Say About Being 'White and Privileged'

It would behoove celebrities to recognize the universal truth that August is the worst time to wild out on social media, because nothing else is happening, so everyone is paying very close attention. That’s what brings us to this “controversy,” featuring Rosanna Arquette (’memba her?), a medium-bad tweet, and backlash.

Earlier this week, Arquette tweeted, “I’m sorry I was born white and...

Just Because Beyoncé Posts Some Nice Pictures on Instagram Doesn't Mean She's Pregnant!

Please read this following “news” “item” and take it with a heaping serving of your finest Himalayan pink sea salt: Beyoncé put some nice photos of herself on Instagram and now the Beyhive thinks she’s dropping hints about being pregnant??

My source for this very dubious news is the Daily Mail, so again, use caution; it is a slow summer, so we are making lemonade out of some stale-ass lemons...

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Are Probably Not Getting Married in Italy, Maybe?

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Are Probably Not Getting Married in Italy, Maybe?

I’m not a soothsayer and would certainly never profess to be one, but something tells me that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are NOT getting hitched in Italy, despite what the photos published by TMZ seem to show.

Kylie was spotted walking towards a private jet clutching a dress that maybe looks like a wedding dress, if one assumes that every white dress is a wedding dress. The dress has...
