Gossip Girl: Georgina’s Back and Badder Than Ever

For a week there, I thought that my beloved Gossip Girl was destined to go the way of The O.C., becoming a drama where the only superior things were wardrobe choices. But after watching episode two of the season, it seems that the drama and romance we cannot live without is here to stay and growing better by the week.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: The Downsides of College

After drowning my sorrows in 3 shots of tequila last night, my friends yelled at me to snap out of it. "You're out of college, woman. GET OVER IT." But how? How am I supposed to move on from the best 4.5 years of my life (of which, I an only really remember 2.25)? By focusing on all the downsides, of course!

Hitched or Ditched: America Says “I Do” To Hypocrisy

Hitched or Ditched poses the ultimate ultimatum to a rocky couple: Get married in a week or end it for good. Viewers are drawn to the drama and suspense of whether a couple will say “I do” or be publicly humiliated with rejection.

High School Movie Heaven – Part II

A while back, the editor of this very site put out a query: "Give me a Top 10 list of your favorite High School Movies." I told her I wanted in - after all, who doesn't love to indulge in a little HS drama? So I sat down and started listing. Only I discovered that including just 10 was more impossible than winning 8 medals in one Olympic games. And I am no Michael Phelps.

Miss Manners: Break Up Etiquette

I'm going to be honest: my last break up was over four years ago. So when my editor suggested I do a Miss Manners piece on break ups ("because we all suck so badly at that"), I really had to rack my brains for "polite" ways to conduct a break up. What I found was: There is no polite way to break up with someone.

I’m Torn: The Real Housewives

Anyone who knows me knows not to call on Tuesday nights. Not only is it Biggest Loser night, but it also happens to be the best night of my week because of one thing only: The Real Housewives. I don't care if they are from Orange County, Hot-lanta or New York, I can't get enough of these women.

High School Movie Heaven: Part 1

We curl up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn, a Diet Coke and soak up every minute of teenage nostalgia, especially the angst-y, heartbreak-y, hormone-driven parts that come with the High School Movie.
