Whoo hoo! It’s very nearly Memorial Day weekend here in the United States — the long weekend where summer hatches, deep in your soul, and makes you go buy beer. I hope those of you in the States have a very relaxing Monday off of work, and that those of you elsewhere have a Monday that is relaxing. We’ll be back posting regularly on Tuesday! Until then:

– Huge thanks to Forever Young Adult, which gave SPOILED a great review, calling it “fantastically entertaining,” and saying it’s “a fun, frothy escape into the lifestyles of the rich and famous… ridiculously engaging.” Thank you!  (Forever Young Adult) [ALSO! Buy it, if that sounds like fun to you! It’s coming out 6/1 but it’s been seen in certain book stores NOW and it’s on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!]

– Speaking of SPOILED, don’t forget to come out and see us! We’re going to be at the Barnes and Noble at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica on June 5th at 2pm; at Chaucer’s in Santa Barbara on June 7th at 7pm; at Vroman’s in Pasadena on June 11th at noon; the Union Square Macy’s in San Francisco on June 16th at 6pm; and Kepler’s in Menlo Park in the Bay Area on June 17th at 7pm! Details on our book site, as well as updates always to be found on our Facebook page, our twitter (we’re @fuggirls), or — as always — here at GFY! COME ON DOWN! We can’t wait to meet you all.

– Have you read about Hugette Clark, the heiress and recluse who recently died? She’s fascinating. Please, let someone be writing a book about her. (New York Times)

– I love Grub Street’s New York Diet feature — basically, a New Yorker will write down what he or she eats all week, and then people in the comments talk about how they don’t eat enough fiber/are alcoholics/have an eating disorder. It’s great. And I LOVE Wyatt Cenac, from The Daily Show. So it’s apt that he wrote maybe my favorite New York Diet ever. MARRY ME, WYATT. (Grub Street)

– Speaking of Grub Street, they picked a road-trip worthy food destination for every state. I’m hungry now. (Grub Street)

– Elizabeth Taylor’s home was surprisingly restrained, and looks like an awesome place to walk barefoot. (Architecture Digest)

Love this piece about stylist Sasha Charnin Morrison’s new book; I agree with her that sometimes we learn the most from the most awful jobs. (Fashionista)

– Didja hear that Pop Up Video is back? We’re stoked. (Flavorwire)

This Lady Gaga interview is well-nigh unbearable. I kinda think girlfriend needs a vacay.  Also, I don’t want to shock you, but YET ANOTHER MONTH in which Rolling Stone has a women in her underwear on the cover. GET A GRIP OVER THERE. (Celebitchy)

– Lainey and I are in agreement about Katherine Heigl’s hair. (Lainey Gossip)

– You HAVE TO read this interview Courtney Love did with The Fix. It’s UNBEARABLE JUICY. Here’s Part One, and here’s Part Two. JUICY. Please, Courtney, write a tell-all. (The Fix)

This essay waxes poetic about the artistry of the first season of Dynasty. It’s a great, thoughtful read — although, ultimately, I must respectfully disagree: I prefer my Dynasty with as much Alexis as possible. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to grab a cocktail and talk about Steven Carrington’s tenderness that transcends gender with the author. As we always say, how boring it would be if we all agreed? (Slate)

– Don’t judge, but I totally teared up when I saw this video, which asks Harry Potter’s cast to describe the experience of making the films in one word. (Vulture)
