0Taylor Swift, Zooey Deschanel and James Franco crashed Seth Rogen’s ‘SNL’ party

SNL

I still haven’t watched this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live with Seth Rogen hosting, but his monologue went viral yesterday considering all the famous faces who turned up to… support him, I guess?

That’s right – James Franco, Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift all turned up to get in on the fun, and I guess it was sorta amusing or something? I dunno – I rarely think the monologues (or the show in general) is anything worthwhile these days, but this is okay. I wish this show would realize, however, that it takes more than extra celebrity cameos to make people laugh. Maybe just try being funny with the regular cast you have? I dunno.

2It’s time for a Lupita Nyong’o appreciation post!

lupita nyong'o 3

Lupita Nyong’o is beautiful, incredibly talented and just all-around wonderful, and she killed it AGAIN last night at the MTV Movie Awards with the most amazing outfit EVER.

Look, I know some of you will totally pan this dress and say it’s hideous, but the Chanel Fall 2014 dress she wore last night was AMAZING. The pictures didn’t even do it justice – I just LOVE this thing, particularly at the top. It suits her SO well and she looks incredible.

You can see it a bit better on her Instagram video from last night, when she realized she’d hit a million followers:

5Have we been too harsh on Jenny McCarthy?

jenny mccarthy

Jenny McCarthy has gotten a lot of criticism in her day for being an idiot and saying stupid shit, like how vaccinations cause autism and all that. But now, apparently she didn’t mean it like that and wishes everyone would stop saying she’s anti-vaccine.

As she wrote in the Chicago Sun Times,

I am not “anti-vaccine.” This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, “pro-vaccine” and for years I have been wrongly branded as “anti-vaccine.”

My beautiful son, Evan, inspired this mother to question the “one size fits all” philosophy of the recommended vaccine schedule. I embarked on this quest not only for myself and my family, but for countless parents who shared my desire for knowledge that could lead to options and alternate schedules, but never to eliminate the vaccines.

Blatantly inaccurate blog posts about my position have been accepted as truth by the public at large as well as media outlets (legitimate and otherwise), who have taken those false stories and repeatedly turned them into headlines. What happened to critical thinking? What happened to asking questions because every child is different?

For my child, I asked for a schedule that would allow one shot per visit instead of the multiple shots they were and still are giving infants.

I am passionate about important conversations on how we can improve health care for our children and generations to come. This is an extremely important discussion and I am dumbfounded that these conversations are discounted and negated because the answers are not black or white. Again I ask, what happened to critical thinking?

The column goes on from there and is well worth the read. To be fair, if indeed she’s been severely misquoted, that’s fine and well. Or, if she’s come to her senses and realized she was SEVERELY misinformed before, that’s even better. Either way, the sooner people stop spouting bullshit like this, the better.

7Christina Hendricks says “No, thanks!” to kids

christina hendricks

Christina Hendricks has been married to husband Geoffrey Arend since 2009, so everyone wants to know something very important: WHEN ARE THEY HAVING BABIES?! Well, turns out, the answer to that is… never! Turns out, not everyone in possession of ovaries is desperate to procreate.

Preach it, Christina:

“We got a puppy, and that’s my idea of starting a family. People say, ‘Oh, that’s practice for parenting,’ but if it’s practice for anything it’s to be a mom to another puppy,” Hendricks, 38, tells Health in their May issue, on stands April 18.

“We’ve decided that we are not really interested in having children.”

She continues: “It’s just very normal for people to say, ‘Well, when you guys have kids …’ And then when I say, ‘Actually, I don’t think we’re going to do that,’ people will say, ‘Oh, you say that now …’ It doesn’t bother me, though. And, you know, there’s a small chance I could change my mind.”

Good for her! I like dogs more than babies, too (though babies ARE really cute and squishy… as long as I can give them back). If you think I’m making a big deal out of the fact that a woman has come out and said outright that she doesn’t want kids, then think of this: the fact that this is even a topic for discussion, that people are asking it and reporting on it, speaks for itself.

Plus, she was probably scarred by Joan’s experience on Mad Men.

1Snow White and Prince Charming got married!

ginnifer goodwin josh dallas

It was only about six months ago that Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas announced that they weren’t just Snow White and Prince Charming on screen, but they’re just as in love in real life and planned to get married, which kinda made me ridiculously happy. Dumb, but whatever.

Anyway, not only are they expecting their own Emma, but they actually tied the knot this weekend! People reported that the couple had an intimate ceremony in California on Saturday, and that’s really all that we know (and sorta all we need to know, considering). Yay!

Seriously, though, can we talk about Once Upon a Time? This season is getting so good! This show is so bad that it’s actually amazing (the acting is bad; the storylines are fantastic). I can’t be the only one who watches this shit.
