Sorry guys, we’re Celebrating MGM this Monday!

“You can’t wear a tank top two days in a row, and you can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week. Oh, and we only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays. Now, if you break any of these rules, you can’t sit with us at lunch.” -Gretchen Wieners

Happy Mean Girls Monday! In celebration of this auspicious occasion, I want you to think back to the first time you watched this amazing teen chic flick. I remember watching this movie and how much I couldn’t wait to get to school the next day and tell my friends about it.

Recently, I decided to watch this movie again and here’s what I got from watching it (as an adult who can quote this entire movie).

  1. Learn to roll with the punches: Life is full of unfortunate events, it’s up to you to go with it and continue to live or you can cry your eyes out and quit. In this case channel your inner Regina George. She was the goddess of not caring about other thought of her. Did your twist out not turn out right and you only have about 15 minutes left until you have to leave for work. Who cares, transform those wet curls into a cute up do or puff and beat your face. Life zip, blackgirlmagic 1 point.

2. Exactly what he said!

3. Remember, no matter how old your mom gets, she’s going to want to barrow a sweater or want to know what’s “hip.” Just keep her in the loop and it’s a little less embarrassing. Mom’s are great, everyone want’s a “cool” mom.

4. Chase the things you want in life. Your dreams won’t become realities if all you do is dream about them.

5. Accept that you’re perfectly flawed. We were created with a sense of uniqueness. Love what makes you different. You can complain everyday but nothing is going to change. Embrace yourself and others will embrace you too.

As a tween, mean girls was the best for all the wrong reasons. Every girl wanted to rule their school but with the wrong attitude. Watching this movie as an adult is just as funny, but mainly because you realize that either you were these girls, you hated these girls or you wanted to be these girls. What ever category you fall under, just remember on Wednesday we were pink!

 

 

Is Basketball Wives Not Enough?!

Apparently not. Basketball Wives has pretty much had a monopoly on the women in the lives of athletes market since its debut on VH1 in 2010 and became even more of a staple when a Los Angeles based spinoff, Basketball Wives LA, debuted in 2011. Well the E! Network is trying to step out of the Kardashian only business and venture into other reality shows, hence the creation of their new show WAGS. WAGS stands for wives and girlfriends of sports stars.

According to E! Online, WAGS is about:

“The world of professional sports can be glamorous and full of perks, but these women behind the men know the truth…there are rules to being a WAG. From knowing how to support your man to how to learning the hierarchy of the WAG world and the drama that comes with it, these girls are the experts of maneuvering, manipulating and always making sure to look damn good while doing it.”

The show stars seven women who identify as either a wife, partner, or fiancé to an athlete: Autumn Ajirotutu, wife of the Philadelphia EaglesSeyi Ajirotutu; Barbie Blank, fiancée of former Anaheim Ducks player Sheldon Souray; Nicole Williams, four-year girlfriend of Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ offensive lineback Larry English; Natalie Halcro, who dates NFL player Shaun Phillips, and her cousin/BFF/business partner Olivia Pierson, who’s been linked to players from the Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Los Angeles Clippers; Sasha Gates, wife of San Diego Chargers’ Antonio Gates; and Ashley North fiancé of the Washington RedskinsDashon Goldson.

This show–unlike its predecessor–highlights not only the women in professional basketball player’s lives, but the women in the lives of all professional athletes. And boy will there be drama! PEOPLE got a supertease of the show and in that tease Sasha Gates said, “When people look at us they see the glitz and the glam, but there’s a lot of things that come with being in this type of relationship … However, you’re walking in there, it’s a representation of your man, too, and I gotta represent him the best I can.”

Ashely North said this of the WAGS world “You know that you’re not always [your partner’s] No. 1 priority, and you have to be comfortable with that.”

Basketball Wives and other shows with the same theme as WAGS has made it clear that girlfriends and wives of athletes aren’t thought of as being on the same level, Gates had this to say, “Know your place in the hierarchy. There are rules.” Uh oh. The claws are out! Will you be watching?


Watch WAGS on E! Network starting August 18th! Check your local listings for specific air times!

Depending on your cable carrier, you may be able to watch the first episode NOW via E! Online!

Solange’s Unordinary Wedding

Congrats is in order for the new Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson!

Solange took a more classic approach at breaking the internet! The 28-year-old singer finally tied the knot with 51-year-old video director, Alan Ferguson. If the Knowles family knows how to do anything, its how to show up and show out, and Solange and Alan knew just how to do so!

This happily ever after did not feature your traditional wedding ceremony, as you may probably already be able to tell from the portraits.

Vogue reports, the duo arrived to the ceremony on painted white bicycles just before walking down the aisle to Donny Hathaway’s, “I Love The Lord, He Heard My Cry.” Attending guest included Beyonce, Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, Janelle Monae, and many more.

The night was filled with performances by musicians Kelela, Questlove, and Kindness, and even included a dance off between Solange and her son Julez to “No Flex Zone.”

In celebration of their upcoming nuptials, the night before, Solange and Alan treated their guest to a pre-wedding movie night. The couple rented out the Indywood Cinema, where 50 of their closets friends and family members gathered to watch the movie, Mahogany.

I know you’re probably thinking either “what is that?” or “why the 1975 Diana Ross romance classic?” Well, it’s the movie the couple watched on their first date!

“It was pretty adorable,” Hayley Sampson, owner of the film house tells PEOPLE. “They were talking about how they met and that they bonded [over] this film and then showed everybody the movie.”

I’m sure this movie night beat the traditional family dinner the night before the wedding. Solange looked absolutely stunning as she wore her beautiful long all-white dress with accentuating gold bracelets. She reminds me of a new modern and refined Cleopatra, without all of the headwear of course. Solange showed us just how to break the internet, the Ferguson way!
