Fugs and Pieces, May 10, 2013


Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! (Especially ours!) Please read and enjoy:

– You need to read this, at the Hollywood Reporter: $40,000-a-Night Escorts: Secrets of the Cannes Call Girls. Yes. Exactly. (THR)

– Vulture put together The Ultimate Don Draper Pitch, in a piece I like to call OMG First Season Jon Hamm Is SOOOOOOOOOO Good-Looking. (Vulture)

– Exhibit L in the series The Internet Is So Weird (In a Good Way): Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal. (Gosloving)

Rick Moranis is back! This is great news, and timely, since I just watched Ghostbusters this weekend. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day, I can tell you! (Vulture)

– Over at the Cut, Rebecca Harrington has done a great series of really brilliant and funny articles where she goes on the crazy diets endorsed by celebrities — I’ve linked to them before. This week: GOOP gets it. (The Cut)

This weekend is the 20th birthday of DONNA MARTIN GRADUATES. Vulture talks to Tori Spelling. (Vulture)

– Lainey and I agree that if the story about the Hemsworths intervening with Liam to dump Miley is true, we are kind of Team Miley. (Although I find the story about an actual anti-Miley intervention to be hilarious, theoretically. I like to think they had a PowerPoint, and it was ALL pictures from The Last Song.) (Lainey)

Let’s look at some May brides throughout Royal History, shall we? (The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor)

Beyonce’s rider demands hand-carved ice balls. (Allegedly.) “Hand-Carved Ice Balls” is also the name of my new band. We are TOUGH. (Celebitchy)

A 105 year-old woman claims bacon is the secret to her long life. TELL ME MORE. (Time)

– Cosmo — brilliantly –ranks Carrie Bradshaw’s boyfriends. Do not get me started on how much I still want to slap Berger. (Cosmo)

The Saul Bass Google Doodle is basically the best thing ever. Seriously. (Slate)

    I nominate for addition Maisie Williams flash-dancing with her dance class – she’s smiling! And wearing harem pants! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-UQ9VEL1-E

  2. Just me

    Love Fugs and Pieces!

    Also, this is my favorite thing of the week. The video of the couple singing at the gas pump makes me smile! Wanted to share: http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/recreation/celebrities/gas-pump-camera-surprises-couple-who-land-on-the-tonight-show.html

    • Sally

      Just me, that is an awesome clip! So much fun- thanks.

      • Just me

        Thanks Sally! I figured if I couldn’t stop smiling, it might make others grin too! =)

        • Jessica

          I love those two. I want to be friends with them.

          • Sajorina

            I am totally TEAM COCO and I don’t do karaoke, but I just love Will & Monifa! They are soooo much fun! Thank you, Just me!

    Read the Cosmo/Carrie’s Boyfriends article JUST for the part about Jon Bon Jovi! HI-larious!

  4. Donna

    Another excellent round-up Fug Girls, thanks! Just so you know, the Goop diet link isn’t working.

    Rebecca Harrington’s post has to be one of the funniest I’ve read in a while. She must have real good friends to keep going to her dinner parties (at least some of them are prepared).

  6. LoriK

    Since when is telling your little brother that you don’t like his fiancée an “intervention”? I mean really, WTH?

  7. Miss Louise

    The line in that article about Aidan in SATC, “Spending the rest of your life with a Stage 5 clinger who whittles ottomans for a living and asks you “What’s going on in here” while he’s stroking your head is my actual idea of hell”, is one of the funniest things I’ve read lately.

  8. Sajorina

    I like to imagine that Chris Hemsworth did a dramatic reading of “Fug the Fromage: The Last Song” during the Intervention and I wish I was there to give him a standing ovation!

  9. keekey

    Awww, I’m glad that Cosmo rated Jeremy (David Duchovny) so high! He was my second favorite of Carrie’s boyfriends.

  10. deee

    Always love Friday! While you are on Vulture, look for the story/video about WIll Arnett and the Arrested Development chicken dance. It’s hilarious.

    I’m still sad that Will and Amy Poehler aren’t together.

    We love article about Tori Spelling she is so funny:*


  13. Lori

    Who, exactly, does Tori Spelling think she’s fooling? “I hate having attention on me.” Right. Hence the reality shows.

  14. Kris

    Damn you girls! (and I mean that in the nicest way possible!) I had a paper due last night at midnight and wanted to get the majority of it done on Saturday night, but noooooo, I had to read the weekly wrap up and got sucked into the vortex that is the Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor. FOUR HOURS LATER at 1 am, I finally just shut down the computer and went to bed. YOU’RE the reason I was up until midnight last night getting this turned in. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it… and I don’t regret those four hours at all. I have now chosen my favorite crowns, favorite wedding dresses, and favorite jewels of all time.

    As a member of the grammar police, I just want to thank your for correctly acknowledging the “moms” out there; I cannot tell you how many posts on Facebook that I saw with people thanking all the “mom’s” and “mother’s” out there. Drove me absolutely crazy.

    Now I kinda wanna buy Goop’s book.
