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!

Congrats To The Winner Of Our #ASOS #PITNB Giveaway!

@eitherandorboth, You WON!!!

Now listen, everyone who isn’t @eitherandorboth, please stop crying right now. I promise that this is not the last giveaway we will have on the blog! I, too, wish I had won the #ASOS #PITNB Giveaway, but alas it was not meant to be. So let’s all get our emotions in order and congratulate @eitherandorboth on her big win! She was hoping to get her hands on some of the new ASOS kimonos, and I just know she’s going to look ah-mazing. Congrats again to our lucky winner (who was chosen in a very scientific, unbiased process by the PITNB Baby), and keep up with Pink Is The New Blog for more giveaways!

P.S. I’m still playing around with that Bikini Mixer, in case you were wondering.

‘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!

PITNBrs, How Would You Like Some Free Stuff From ASOS?!?!?!

Yasss! We Have An Official #ASOS #PITNB Giveaway!

As many of you know, I have exactly one shopping destination and that destination is ASOS. I’ve been saying this since loooong before they started offering our readers FREE STUFF! I’ve always loved their swimwear, love the celebrities they team up with, and I even continued shopping there when I got pregs, because they have the cutest maternity wear ever. That unforgettable BUMP shirt? Oh yeah, that was all ASOS. Now that I’m officially not pregs (and will not be ever again… for the next 7-10 years), and bikini season is approaching, I actually had quite a blast trying out their funky, new, interactive Bikini Mixer. Click inside so I can 1.) tell you all about it, and 2.) tell you how to win our exclusive PITNB ASOS coupon!!!

Happy Birthday, PITNBr Devonte Antonio!

Here Are All Of Your Celebrity Babydaddies In One Place!

I have been meaning to put this gallery together for a loooong time, and today is the perfect day for it! Since I’ve been at PITNB I’ve developed a great relationship with ALL of you, and I’ve been lucky enough special relationships with a few of you. PITNBr Devonte Antonio has made me spit-take over many-a-comment from him, and over time I’ve learned that he has a whole slew of celebrity baby daddies. Some of them are married and with actual children, but it doesn’t matter! They’re his. And since today is his friggen birthday we are going to give him the gift he so deserves– all of his baby daddies in one place. Peep the (somewhat NSFW) gallery for more, send Devonte some Birthday Lurve and follow him on Instagram! And there’s one more surprise for Devonte inside :)
