The Craft's Rachel True Read My Tarot and Now I'm a Believer, Mostly

Everything I knew about tarot I learned from Real Housewives. That is, until I met actress and tarot reader Rachel True. Known for her roles in The Craft, Half & Half and Half Baked, Rachel transformed a youthful fascination with the esoteric and turned it into another career. Today, in addition to acting, she does…

I Can't Believe They Let Me Do This  I Can't Believe They Let Me Do This 

Those in my life can attest to the frequent incredulousness with which I move through the world. Generally I do know why things are the way they are, but it rarely tempers my awe that the things that happen, actually happen. The details of this world still find a way to flatten me. There are women who run around…

Goodbye Shade Court, For Real This Time Goodbye Shade Court, For Real This Time

Well folks, this is it. I now find it difficult to even remember the origins of Shade Court, though I do clearly remember, like many things in my life, it was born out of my frustration. Frustration at watching publication after publication misuse this wonderful, beautiful word and all the rudeness and arrogance it…

A Conversation With Nikkita Oliver, the Seattle Mayoral Candidate Whose Activism Spawned a Movement A Conversation With Nikkita Oliver, the Seattle Mayoral Candidate Whose Activism Spawned a Movement

On August 1, the city of Seattle will hold a primary election to decide the top two candidates advancing to the city’s mayoral race in November.

If Ever In Doubt, Let Aretha Franklin Be Your Shade Guide If Ever In Doubt, Let Aretha Franklin Be Your Shade Guide

Things change and yet nothing changes, huh? Donald Trump is still president. Pete Souza still is not throwing shade. My brain hasn’t fully oozed out of my ears yet from being inundated with lies and stupidity and the truly asinine on a minute-by-minute basis. And of course, I’m here to bring to the smallest bit of…

On the Real Housewives of New York, Vermont Is For Yelling at Tinsley Mortimer On the Real Housewives of New York, Vermont Is For Yelling at Tinsley Mortimer

At some point, the Real Housewives of New York producers must have realized the best way to drive these women crazy is to lock them in a large luxury home, somewhere in the woods, preferably during the winter. This week, everyone packed their ridiculous boots and handles of Tito’s vodka and headed to Vermont, because…

The Tabloids Are Having a Hard Time Reporting on Beyoncé's Twins The Tabloids Are Having a Hard Time Reporting on Beyoncé's Twins

Beyoncé’s twins are here on this earth. We know that for certain. But that’s about all we know. For anyone who cares about these kind of things, it has been fascinating to watch gossip and entertainment sites struggle to report and confirm the very little information swirling around the newest members of the Carter…

It is officially summer. You probably already knew that and I’m not sure what you’ll do with that information if you didn’t but I felt it needed to be said. This means we’re almost halfway through 2017 and I plan on spending the next few months preserving my strength so I can make it over the finish line. Let’s see…

I Am Late, But Let's Talk About Taylor Swift Shading Katy Perry I Am Late, But Let's Talk About Taylor Swift Shading Katy Perry

As it turns out, the LA County courts absurdly do not recognize my judgeship and time serving this illustrious court. However, as soon as I started opening my mouth, neither the plaintiff nor the defendant wanted anything to do with me, so here we are. The scales of justice, folks!

Fiona the Hippo Is My Soul, My Hope, My Leader, My Purpose Fiona the Hippo Is My Soul, My Hope, My Leader, My Purpose

Quick, name three good things in the world right now. I’ll start: Fiona the Hippo is alive, Fiona the Hippo can swim, and Fiona the Hippo is thriving. No need to offer any other suggestions. Fiona the Hippo is giving me all the happiness I need in these trying times and I don’t know where I’d be without her. Goddamn,…

I Should've Bought a Lottery Ticket Like My Mom Told Me To I Should've Bought a Lottery Ticket Like My Mom Told Me To

Somewhere in Southern California, a winning Powerball ticket is sitting unclaimed—lost in some crevice of a car seat perhaps or jammed into the back pocket of a pair of jeans. It might be rotting away in a trash can or forgotten about after being used as a bookmark. Wherever it is, that ticket is worth a ridiculous…

In the Battle Between Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer, No One Wins In the Battle Between Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer, No One Wins

Let’s get a few things clear from the jump: Ramona Singer is a monster. Jill Zarin is a monster. Bethenny Frankel is a monster. No one alive has ever been more determined to get married in Palm Beach than the artist formerly known as The Countess, one Luann D’Agostino.

James Comey Is Not Hot  James Comey Is Not Hot 

Plenty of disturbing details emerged today during former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee. He confirmed that water is wet and Trump is a liar. He refused to answer whether or not Trump colluded with Russians in a manner that I’m taking as a hard yes. And we all…

A Bachelorette-Inspired Poll: Would You Rather Marry a Trainer or a Chiropractor?  A Bachelorette-Inspired Poll: Would You Rather Marry a Trainer or a Chiropractor? 

Seeing as how it’s Tuesday and my life is now such that my mind is still racing with thoughts from last night’s episode of The Bachelorette, I’d like to tickle everyone’s fancy with a very stupid conversation. This morning, I hit up my dear friend Kate Dries, because who else am I obligated to share my every inane…

The Real Housewives of Orange County Is Back, and Sadly, So Is Kelly Dodd The Real Housewives of Orange County Is Back, and Sadly, So Is Kelly Dodd

Of the many question I’d like to ask God, one of the top ones would be: Judging by how often and the manner in which they speak to you, The Real Housewives of Orange County seem to believe that you pay them a disproportionate amount of attention. Why is that? Because if you are paying them said amount of attention,…
