  • The role that those clever folks at Arrested Development have chosen for Kristen Wiig to guest star in for their new season is very nearly perfect. (Vulture)
  • It’s the new menu at Guy Fieri’s new place everyone! But not really! (Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar)
  • Here’s the little story of a big old ugly throwdown between the British tabloids, royal-lovers, David Cameron, and seemingly half of England over a lecture by Man-Booker prize winning author Hilary Mantel in which she—by way of making a bigger point about the monarchy in general, and women of the monarchy in particular—referred to Kate Middleton as a “jointed doll…with no personality of her own,”  among other things. Mantel’s overarching points are actually interesting and possibly valid, as you’ll see if you read on, but boy does she not mince words! Mantel also said “…a royal lady is a royal vagina.” So you can see how feathers might have been ruffled. (Atlantic Wire)
  • Unreleased celebrity fragrances: Really silly and pretty funny. (The Hairpin via Kottke)
  • Your. Worst. Nightmare. (Smithsonian)

    thanks for the morning snort. I sat at the counter of a local diner next to tom waits once. He smelled like hashbrowns.

    Hilary Mantel seemed pretty spot on in her comments in my tiny opinion, but I can see how the royalty might have gotten their collective panties in a twischt. Still…

    From the article, it sounds like people are missing the point, which is just that people are still very sexist. This is in a country that let a monarch kill … how many? was it eight? — numerous wives, for whatever reason. Women are treated badly and seen as objects. This is news?
