duggar-daughters-book

The four oldest Duggar daughters - Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger - have 'written' a book about their lives, which will be published in November by Howard Books, a Christian company. The title is Growing Up Duggar: The Duggar Girls Share Their View of Life Inside American's Most Well-Known Super-Sized Family. It's a little too early for the book to have cover art or a description yet, but if this book is anything like the other previous Duggar books, it will contain plenty of information we've … [Read more...]

Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham Isn’t Too Christian to Make Porn

farrah-abraham-christian-porn

Since the original series of Teen Mom ended last year, one of the show's stars, Farrah Abraham, has desperately tried to stay relevant. She released a book, an album, and a line of pasta sauce, then got a DUI. A few days ago, rumors began to swirl that Farrah had made a sex tape. The truth is slightly more complex: she didn't make a sex tape, she made a straight-up porn movie with porn star James Deen. (Side note: a sex tape is a tape that you make for funsies that accidentally or 'accidentally' … [Read more...]

SNL’s Bar Mitvah Boy Returns to Explain Passover

I absolutely loved Vanessa Bayer's "Jacob the bar mitzvah boy" character the first time she popped up, so I'm thrilled that she made a repeat appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend. Jacob appeared on Weekend Update to teach Seth - and the audience, presumably - about the meaning of Passover. Her impression of an awkward, dorky bar mitzvah kid is actually so perfect that I break out in hives while watching her. … [Read more...]

omar-omer-sixth-day

The period between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot is known as the omer. Religious Jews will count down these 49 days, aka "counting the omer." But the omer just became way more fun thanks to a new Tumblr called Counting the Omar, which posts a different picture of Omar Little from the TV show The Wire every day. I mean, who doesn't appreciate a little extra Michael K. Williams in life? … [Read more...]

Church Uses Image from ‘The Walking Dead’ to Promote Their Easter Services

walking-dead-church-ad

When you think Easter, you probably think of dyed eggs, bunny rabbits, and ... zombies? An unnamed church has used images from the TV show The Walking Dead to publicize its Easter services, along with the tag line "why look for the living among the dead?"As io9's Meredith Woerner points out, this could totally be fake, since there's no sign of which church it came from. That said, it's still pretty funny, and far from the worst appropriation of pop culture by a church trying to be cool … [Read more...]

david-priscilla-waller-baby-paul

David Waller and his wife Priscilla Waller, younger sister of Anna Duggar, welcomed their first child on Saturday. Paul William Waller weighed 9 pounds, 11 ounces and was 22 inches long. Happy new dad David wrote this post on his blog to explain the meaning of their son's name: We selected the name Paul months ago based on the incredible hero of faith in the Bible. The meaning of his name is often listed as small, little, or sometimes even humble. I think those are all traits that we should … [Read more...]
