Michelle MaClaren has left the big screen adaptation of Wonder Woman amidst mysterious circumstances. This would have been her first big feature (she’s directed episodes of Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad in the past), but she’s cited “creative differences” as the reason for her departure.
J.Crew is officially too expensive, and the price-point exasperation might be built upon the popularity of the brand’s creative director Jenna Lyons.

If National Proposal Day didn’t make you feel like the piece of garbage that you are because no one’s marrying you, there’s another national holiday to remind you that we all die alone, especially if your marriage has failed, as divorce is the mark of your true and irreconcilable shortcomings as a human being.
Can you identify a famous person just by something they said? Read the quote below and see if you can Name That Celeb!
For RuPaul's Drag Race fans, the "Snatch Game" episode is basically our birthdays. Based on the old game show The Match Game—a choice which hearkens back to Ru's obsession with television of the '70s and '80s—each queen is tasked with impersonating a personality of their choice and competing in a fashion that shows off their comedy chops.
A pastor at a church in a Texas suburb has been accused of starving a two-year-old boy to death because she believed he was possessed by demons. Church members then attempted to “resurrect” the child before taking his body to Mexico for burial. The child’s mother did not report the death; the police were reportedly told about the resurrection ritual by an anonymous tipster.
This past weekend, I went to see The Longest Ride, the latest Nicholas Sparks movie, all by myself.
A new study indicates that low wages are such a burden that fully half the fast food industry's workers must rely on public assistance programs just to get by. It's a pretty reasonable assertion at this point that the system is not working as intended.
Would you like to hear a vintage interview with a young Dolly Parton? Of course you would!
The latest attempted American revival of a bygone tradition: sidesaddle horseback riding.
It's understandable if you don't remember everything that happened in Orphan Black's second season. Those ten episodes packed loads of betrayals, revelations, and freaky, freaky science. Let us catch you up on last season before the new season starts this weekend.
Packing for travel requires patiently identifying and organizing the mundane necessities of your occasionally itinerant life. It requires you to gather your humdrum accoutrements and anticipate unforeseen miscalculations. It can be overwhelming, sometimes. It is a total pain in the ass, always.
Some people have spent the better part of this morning wondering whether or not a video posted to Twitter shows Rihanna snorting cocaine during a private party at Coachella. Rihanna has now responded to the rumors in the most Rihanna fashion possible.
On Monday night, Padma Lakshmi hosted a benefit for The Endometriosis Foundation Of America (an organization she also co-founded). At one point during the event, she opened a bottle of champagne and shared it with Christian Slater, Norman Reedus, and Andy Cohen. But what did they talk about after toasting? I have an idea.
Newly-announced presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is like Barack Obama in many ways. Sure, he opposes Roe v. Wade and same-sex marriage, doesn’t believe humans are causing climate change, and would like to smash Obamacare to smithereens, but when it comes to lofty, experience-disguising rhetoric and hip, hip musical taste, Obama is basically his mentor!
The first time I watched Botched, it was with equal levels of shock and shameful fascination. The premiere episode featured a woman with a lumpy uni-boob. Subsequent episodes: a woman whose ass implant flipped, a Justin Bieber wannabe, Janice Dickinson and a woman whose tragic tummy tuck had repositioned her vagina—all people who’d frustratingly sought plastic surgery to fix unsightly (to them) physical features, often to the point of deformity.
One cold, windy day last week, a neat snake of people dressed in muted business casual shuffled in double-file outside ABC’s studios at 66th and Columbus, waiting to receive a color-coded wristband that would permit them to audition for Shark Tank. 500 of them will make it through the doors today, a small fraction of the roughly 45,000 people who audition for the best show on TV each year.
