1 Thing You Don't Know About Who? Weekly

Hairpin pals Bobby Finger and Lindsey Weber released issue #8 of Who? Weekly today, and this Us-inspired graphic should be the 1 Thing you need to see to go subscribe. (Full archive is here.) [Who? Weekly]


Selena, 'Selena,' and "Selenas"

Selena Quintanilla Perez was murdered on this day in 1995. 

If you lived in Texas in the 90s, as I did, you knew who Selena was even if you didn't listen to her music. Your or your friends hung posters of her band on their walls, wore shirts with a white rose on the back, and visited her memorial if you happened to be in Corpus Christi. Whether you understood Spanish or not, you sang along with her music on the radio because the lyrics were as familiar as any other big song from a Texas recording artist. You knew who Selena was because her music seemed to have infiltrated [...]


Romy And Michele Are 45. So Is Toby Walters.

This is part of a week-long series celebrating the 45th birthdays of characters from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.

Toby started her first blog in 1999. “Toby’s Take” was hosted on Live Journal and, at its peak, was getting about 10,000 celebrity-loving hits a day (though this was before any good analytics were available to average internet users). It was filled with her lengthy writeups of celebrity sightings, scanned autographs, and photos she snapped on her own. On most weekday mornings you could find Toby prowling the streets of Hollywood with headshots and a camera and blank sheets of paper trying to get her favorite (any) celebrity’s photo, autograph, and [...]


52 Weeks of Us Weekly

Today Us Weekly posted a gallery containing all 52 of their 2013 covers. It was a glorious gallery, and worth all 52 clicks. Scattered across those wonderful glossy pages were things I will never forget (like Kris Jenner hooking up with Ben F.), things I'd forgotten (like Reese Witherspoon's drunken arrest), and things I hope to forget (like the cast of Duck Dynasty.) Below is a rundown of Us Weekly's 2013 cover stories.

Please Note: This list represents the larger 2/3 of the cover, not the 1/3 column of less-important stories. And "Headlines" refers to the large yellow copy in that 2/3.

Better Chipotle Cups

"Starting Thursday, VF Daily can exclusively reveal, bags and cups in Chipotle’s stores will be adorned with original text by [Jonathan Safran] Foer, Malcolm Gladwell, Toni Morrison, George Saunders, and Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Lewis… 'I selected the writers, and insofar as there was any editing, I did it,' Foer said. 'I tried to put together a somewhat eclectic group, in terms of styles. I wanted some that were essayistic, some fiction, some things that were funny, and somewhat thought provoking.'"

Some additional suggestions for Foer's consideration below.


Romy White and Michele Weinberger Are 45

This is part of a week-long series celebrating the 45th birthdays of characters from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.

After a year of steadily increasing sales at Romy & Michele, Romy and Michele paid Sandy back. Their store was such a success that he suggested they open another location, but the two thought a second store would affect their ability to provide personalized service to their customers. One store was enough, they thought. One store was good.

In 2000 they moved out of their apartment in Venice and found two adjacent units in West Hollywood. It took some time for them to adjust to being neighbors [...]


Romy And Michele Are 45. So Is Heather Mooney.


This is part of a week-long series celebrating the 45th birthdays of characters from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.

Heather never told the Cowboy about the abortion. As he slept, she sat up and listened to the hotel’s air conditioner turn off and on until morning. She knew immediately, but didn’t make an appointment for two months. There’s a dull pain of something like regret but mostly like sadness that resurfaces at night, just before bed, but it’s never enough to keep her awake. It’s just there. A decision. A memory. She should have told him. All she would have done differently is make a phone call, but [...]


Can You Use "Lay" In a Sentence?

"No one likes an awkward lay. You want to lay someone who wants to lay you; you want to say who you like and get to lay that person. That's good sex. You don't want to lay some girl that you're supposed to lay, who you don't like, but you don't want anyone to know that. Like, neither person is having good sex. You might as well beat off."

-Neil Patrick Harris, Rolling Stone, May 2014

Bobby: lay

lay lay lay


Emma: wanna lay?

oh yea… i laid him

oh yea… we laid

Bobby: me and my partner laid last night

how often do you lay?

oh [...]


Romy and Michele are 45. So is Christy Masters.

This is part of a week-long series celebrating the 45th birthdays of characters from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.

Christy filed for divorce from Billy two weeks after the reunion. She had been considering it for some time, but his actions that night were so public, so damaging to their reputation that she felt the time had come to end it for good. She got the house and the kids. He walked away with one of the cars and drove it off to god knows where. No one’s seen him since he sped onto I-10. Most people think he’s long dead, but most of them wouldn’t say that outside [...]


A Bedtime Story

How’s that? You warm enough? Good. Sleep well, my angel. A story? Which story? One you haven’t heard? Yes, I think I can tell you a story you haven’t heard. But only if you promise to keep it a secret! Just between you and grandma. Can you do that? Can you keep a secret? OK. I knew you could.
