Should Celebrities Steer Clear Of Politics?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

Last week we talked about what happens when a celebrity gets knocked up, and whether or not pregnant celebs are better off hiding their baby bumps forever. This week I’m inspired by a few stories that have been going around about celebrities speaking up about the Israeli/Palestine conflict. Before we get into it, let me just say that I know so little about the specificities of this conflict, I don’t even like bringing it up. Years ago I took a class on Sufism (which, now that I think about, I found reason to bring up recently in another post—proving that certain college courses really can have lasting impact on your life), and I remember my professor saying that she simply would not discuss Middle Eastern war or conflict with people who had not studied the history. I always appreciated that stance, and so I tread very carefully here. Click inside for more.

‘I Had Sex With Ryan Gosling And I Got WAY More Than This T-shirt’

PITNBr Kayla FTW!

As I mentioned on the fashion round-up, I was up late with my eye glued to the screen watching The Strain on FX… which is kind of hilarious since I’d already watched my screener copies earlier this month. But that is how much I am into this show. So I’m sharing our comments kind of late! (P.S. Did anyone else watch? Did you love?) Before we get to the comments, if you weren’t around this weekend you missed some serious celebration up in here. Trent has a very short wish list for his birthday this year—and he’s asking everyone to check out and donate if they can to his charity run. We also had a great time looking back at the many gifts Trent has given us over the years with PITNB, so def check out our Thank You post as well. And click inside for more!

YOU Are The New Blog: Should Pregnant Celebrities Just Go Into Hiding?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

Don’t tell anybody (mainly Trent), but this week’s YATNB topic is partly inspired by a recent quote from Mrs. Kanye West. Just pretend I didn’t say that, and consider this point she makes: basically, she says that it sucks so much to be photographed (and attacked, and made fun of) when you’re pregs, that you might as well just forget about trying to look nice, forget about everything, and go into hiding. This got me thinking about the recent news concerning Eva Mendes getting pregnant by the entire world’s boyfriend, Ryan Gosling. She was spotted lit’rally hiding behind a bag, and Zoe Saldana may also be concealing some big news as well. Click inside for more!

‘Damn!! Boy Looks Rough,’ And Other Awesomeness In PITNB Reader Comments

PITNBr lost in here, FTW!

It’s Monday morning and I am coming off of one of the best weekends ever! My beloved Trent was in town and watching him bond with the PITNB baby Josev was ever-y-thing! Those two were so cute together, I can’t wait for Trent to come back… and lug this baby around like he did on Saturday, lol. As some of you know I had a series of powerful experiences when we went to the Kara Walker exhibit, and I’m still reeling a bit from that whole day. But it’s a good reeling. And I’m having a blast pulling together some of our best comments from last week, so click inside for more!

‘The Most Amazing Picture Taken In Con History’ And Other Awesomeness In PITNB Reader Comments This Week

PITNBr Lacey FTW!

Last week my Sunday night was a hot mess, as some of you may remember I had a big, scary, looming deadline for my big, fat, amazing Orange Is The New Black cover story. There were soooo many great comments that I didn’t get to share, so some of them might be mixed up with this week’s round-up. I’m just saying that so y’all don’t judge me for breaking round-up protocol. Oh, but you totally will because I’m also breaking protocol by including an epic tweet we got from PITNBr Lacey but so what! You can’t stop me! I’m rebellin’ like cray against round-up protocol—mua-hahahaha! Click inside for more!

YOU Are The New Blog: When Too Much Plastic Surgery Leaves A Celebrity Unrecognizable

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

First of all, let me just say that I am SO obsessed with YATNB! I was writing Trent on Facebook today about it, because I cannot get over some of the comments from last week—you all had sooo many great stories about celebrities you’ve met (and how the experience either sucked or rocked), and I’ve just been having a blast reading about your FABULOUS lives. I feel like it also needs to be said that PITNBrs have some of the most bomb ass grammar on the interwebs. So, props to y’all. All day, every day. Today’s topic was partly inspired by an article I’m reading on The Hollywood Reporter: Plastic Surgery Suicide Puts Spotlight on Beverly Hills Patients’ Desperation, Lies and Mental States (I recommend reading it when you get a chance), so click inside for more!

YOU Are The New Blog: Does It Suck To Meet A Celebrity Idol?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

So, here’s a fun Toni Morrison story for ya. The Pulitzer Prize winning author who changed my life via Sula, Beloved, Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Paradise, and other novels—the woman who Shonda Rhimes lit’rally wanted to be when she was growing up— lives in my neighborhood (or I in hers). Like, for reals. I live in Nyack, she lives in South Nyack, and I try to mention at this at every given opportunity. One day my partner-in-crime/babymaking’s mother came running into the apartment yelling at me about how Toni Morrison was speaking at the Nyack Public Library in like 10 minutes, and we had to go right now! I sat there for a minute and thought about it, and almost immediately decided that No. I wasn’t going to go. I did not want to meet my idol. A friend of mine once told me that when she saw Toni Morrison speak, my beloved author was chewing gum. I could never shake that image, and did not wish to confirm it. I wanted to keep Toni right where she was—on the fanciest, highest pedestal in my mind. I feel the same way about Kanye West (yes, I still love him in spite of it all!), Erykah Badu and a few others. And since I just had an awesome experience meeting some famous Orange Is The New Black faces, I thought it’d be fun to incorporate all of this into our weekly discussion. Click inside for more!

‘Did Anyone Call The Police? What Would Jesus Do?’ And Other Awesomeness In PITNB Reader Comments This Week

PITNBr Natalea Addresses The Infant/Wedding Dress Scandal

When I look back over last week, there are two dresses that continue to plague my thoughts: Rihanna‘s CFDA gown and that wedding dress with the infant baby riding on the back. In terms of celebrity pop culture news, last week… was glorious. Sure, there were bad times. Justin Bieber times, Pharrell times. But I’m going to remember the good. Because it’s Monday morning and I honestly had a rough week in terms of certain deadline fails that just happened all over the place, lol! But it’s a new day! Let’s have some fun with the comments, and get this Monday started off right. Also, don’t forget to check in on the You Are The New Blog forum— we’re having a blast over there!
