Less Rage, More Reflection: An Interview With Lisa Lampanelli 

Lisa Lampanelli has a new comedy special, and it’s less about fucking black guys—a big part of Lampanelli’s schtick—and more about her personal struggles: Turning 50, getting a divorce, living through both bariatric surgery and taking up yoga. Sporting an edgy haircut (think Suze Ormond at a punk show) and tight jeans… » 6/26/15 6:10pm 6/26/15 6:10pm

Get Spanked in a Unicorn Mask: A Chat With BDSM's Friendliest Couple

The scene in front of me is strange: A young woman, wearing a unicorn mask, is lying across the knees of a bearded man in glasses. He is spanking her. She counts out each blow out loud, pausing only to add “Lord Vader” at the end of the number. “Five, Lord Vader,” she says, her voice muffled by the mask, then “Six,… » 5/04/15 1:45pm 5/04/15 1:45pm

'Just Do It': A Chat With Iris Apfel, Style Icon & Star of a New Film

Most people outside the fashion industry first met Iris Apfel 10 years ago, as the Rara Avis—the rare bird whose 2005 exhibition of clothing and jewelry at the Metropolitan Museum changed the way we look at style for the better.

A Chat with the Botched Doctors On the Alluring Sideshow of Hack Jobs

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… » 4/14/15 4:00pm 4/14/15 4:00pm

Veep's Timothy Simons: Jonah Is Living the White Male American Dream

Tune into HBO’s political comedy Veep and you’ll find that there are few—if any—heroes. Set in in Washington, D.C. and, more specifically, the offices of Vice President Selina Meyer (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the show’s cast of characters are as cut-throat as they are inept. But even in this world of selfish—and… » 4/09/15 2:50pm 4/09/15 2:50pm

Tituss Burgess stopped by HuffPost Live to promote his series, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and to answer questions about the show. In between discussing his vocal range and the diversity issues in Hollywood, he took a moment to answer a question that's been on a lot of people's minds: Is the series racist? » 3/20/15 12:30pm 3/20/15 12:30pm

'Straight James Franco' Interviews 'Gay James Franco'; Both Suck

In a universe already filled with twee, whimsical magazine stories that feel like they've escaped the prison of Zooey Deschanel's brain, there's one more. FourTwoNine magazine asked James Franco (eternal student, important scholar) to interview himself. Or rather, for the straight James Franco to interview the gay one. » 3/17/15 4:15pm 3/17/15 4:15pm

Pregnant and Single at 50: An Interview with Sophie B. Hawkins

Sophie B. Hawkins is a singer, songwriter, and activist with a catalogue that's five albums deep, though most people of a certain generation know her best from her 1992 chart-topping smash, "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover." She's currently working on the follow-up to her bluesy 2012 album The Crossing, but lately she's… » 3/05/15 2:00pm 3/05/15 2:00pm

Former CPAC Head Lisa De Pasquale on Love, Inclusion, and Barf

She organized the behemoth conference from 2006 to 2011. During her time behind the scenes, she's seen and done things that read less like a job and… » 3/03/15 3:45pm 3/03/15 3:45pm

Why Early Wonder Woman Was A Champion Of Feminism... And Bondage

Looking back, Wonder Woman's earliest adventures are a little...strange. The first Wonder Woman comics were filled with bondage, submission, and domination — and even spanking games with small children. How was this supposed to be feminist? A new book analyzes those early Wonder Woman comics. » 1/23/15 4:09pm 1/23/15 4:09pm
