A Conversation With Wednesday Martin, Author of Primates of Park Avenue

On the surface, Primates of Park Avenue is an examination of a lived stereotype: an anthropology-inflected, lightly analytical memoir of coming to belong within an Upper East Side community where blonde, thin, status-obsessed moms hip-check each other with their designer bags, where absent men dole out “wife bonuses”… » 6/02/15 2:50pm 9 minutes ago

Sumo Butts and 'Villains Gotta Vil': Last Night Was Peak Bachelorette

Perhaps it’s the fact that I spent last week binge-watching UnREAL, the new show that’s a fictionalized version of The Bachelor, but it was difficult to watch Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette without being more overwhelmed than usual by how stunningly contrived the entire thing was.
