Here’s A Safe Space To Talk About/Spoil The Eff Out Of ‘Mockingjay’

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

Okay. Let’s do this. I’ve been waiting for everyone to see this movie, since I got a chance to go to an early screening last week. FRIGGEN MOCKINGJAY. Let me tell you about my Hunger Games journey. I went to the first movie without having read any of the books. I thought, because the books were so YA popular, that I was going to be entertained, but not wildly impressed. I was wrong. I then read the first book, and was really amazed at how the story in the film seemed to stick so closely to the book. I haven’t read the other books yet, but I still LOVED Catching Fire, and I basically lost my mind/all control over my emotions when I saw Mockingjay, my favorite of the three. I really, really want to hear about everyone’s favorite moments from the film, so if you’ve seen it—or don’t mind HELLA HELLA SPOILERS— click inside for more!

‘That Apology, Unlike Nicki, Is So Half-Assed!!’ And Other Awesomeness In Reader Comments

PITNBr Sam, FTW!

I know, I know. Shannon has been slacking like a mofo on the comments roundup. Well, they are BACK in full effect, so please forgive my slackage. This weekend I am, once again, swamped and exhausted but we had so many great comments I couldn’t not pull them together. Especially after I spent all that time last night collecting hilarious Twitter reactions to Aaliyah: One in a Million. Click inside for more!

YATNB: Which TV Characters Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

This week we celebrated 80s TV week at Paste Magazine and it was soooo fun. As I person born in the mid-80s I didn’t have much to contribute to our Best 80 TV Shows of the 80s list, but I did get to write about one of my favorite 80s TV icons, Clair Huxtable. There’s been plenty o’ praise heaped on the Cosby Show mom (played by Phylicia Rashād) over the years, so I tried to do something a little different, and I focused on how, as a Mom/lawyer/feminist, she’s directly responsible for Alicia Florrick of The Good Wife. Obviously these are two characters who admire and I thought it’d be fun to talk about other TV characters we’re obsessed with in that “Can I be you when I grow up?” kind of way.

Which Celebrities Do You Have A Love/Hate Relationship With?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

We’re always talking about the lives of celebrities, and all that they must endure as people in the public eye. Even those of us who don’t always have sympathy for these rich and famous folk still have to admit that they work hard, and sacrifice a lot. But what about us? What about how hard it is to be a fan?! The struggle is real, and we’re going to address some of those struggles for today’s YATNB discussion. Click inside for more!

Going Out On A High Note

The TV Guide

And so … my 10th and very likely final marathon is in the books. Yesterday, I ran the NYC Marathon and had a mostly amazing, oftentimes freezing, mostly windy time running the streets of NYC. My day started at 4:20 AM when I had to get ready and make my way to the bus that would take me to Staten Island where I would wait in the bitter, windy cold for 4 hours before I got to start the race. Once I was off and running, I really took my time to savor the experience. I saw beloved friends along the route, met PITNB readers and basked in cheers, love and high fives from the New Yorkers lining the streets who came out to support the runners. It was an experience I won’t ever, ever forget. More »

Let’s Talk Super-Creepy Celebrity Dreams

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

This weekend many of us—along with many of our favorite celebrities—got all dolled up and celebrated Hallowe’en. I don’t dress up for the holiday (but OMG my boys were cute… like painfully cute), but I do love celebrating by watching all of the scary movies that come on TV—and the not-so-scary ones like Hocus Pocus and Addams Family Values, which is currently on my DVR. As a kid, I suffered from many movie-related nightmares (The Night of the Living Dead is the reason I cannot get into The Walking Dead), which then somehow blossomed into creepy celebrity-themed dreams. I know I’m not the only one who has these, so this week as you’re munching on your Hallowe’en candy (or your kids’… like me… right now), I wanna hear about your super-creepy celebrity dreams.

All Hallows Eve In NYC

The TV Guide

Hallowe’en in NYC was so much fun yesterday, I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’ll just rattle off all of the fun stuff that my friends and I got up to in an effort to adequately describe how fun my day was. Before any of the Hallowe’en fun got started, I made my way to the NYC Marathon Expo to pick up my race bib and shirt for the big race tomorrow morning. Then I met up with Sarah and Mark in the city so that we could do a bit of shopping in SoHo before we returned home to get ready for the Hallowe’en fun ahead. We had PLANNED on meeting up with Shannon and our NEW PITNB intern Iris but the damn West Village Hallowe’en Parade LITERALLY got in our way. We ended out the night at a party with my friend Michael and his friends … OH and then late night eats after midnight at a great little greasy spoon in Brooklyn. Ah, the life. More »

‘Jake’s Green/Hazel Eyes… Are… Killing… Me!’

PITNBr rachel's struggle + Other Awesomeness in PITNB Reader Comments!

As you all know, this was a very special week for me, as I geared up for my first child-free weekend in about two years. And, true to form, I overdid a bit Friday night (ahem), and by Sunday morning my partna-in-babymaking was coming to terms with the fact that our one year-old is a beautiful, glorious handful—which no human being should have to endure alone. The baby-free weekend ended early, but it’s allll good. I took at least 4 naps while the kiddies were gone and—best of all—had time to round up some incredibly awesome comments from you PITNBrs.

But, thankfully, PITNBr Devonte Antonio is here to offer me some reprieve. Once again, his Instagram page is getting some stalker-love from me.
