  • The Dos and Don’ts of Girl Code

    Four of the hilarious comics on MTV's Girl Code are here to set the record straight. According to Carly Aquilino, Nicole Byer, Tanisha Long, and Jessimae Peluso, here are the dos and don'ts of friendship that all women should follow.
    as told to Caitlin Brody

Walker/WireImageYou know those hilarious conversations you have with friends over brunch? Like, mimosa-through-your-nose hilarious? Well, the wisecracking women of MTV's Girl Code, which returns for a second season on October 29, get paid to have those talks--about sexcapades, frenemies, and commitment--every week. And they've got stellar Dos and Don'ts for ladyfriends. Check it.

    DO force your single friend to go out. She'll thank you later.
    TANISHA LONG: When I'm single, I love to stay in, watch WWE Divas, and eat ice cream on Saturday night. My friends call me asking, "Are you going to come out?" And I'm like, "I'm busy." But Melanie, who's also on the show, is good at making me go out. That's important. You can't sit at home, sad you're single.

  • Why You're Not Watching 'Keeping Up with the Kardashian's Anymore

    by Megan Angelo

    Jimi Celeste/WWDJimi Celeste/WWDI can't tell if this is a sign of the apocalypse or a sign of the apocalypse holding off for a bit, but guess what, guys. Nobody is watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians anymore. Well, actually: 1.7 million people--that's how many viewers tuned in to Keeping Up last night--isn't nobody, not by a stretch. But when you consider that around a year ago, the show had just delivered a finale watched by 3.6 million people, you can see what's happening here: People are turning away. But why?

    Here's where I pause to allow you to mutter your own justifications of the snort/scoff/because they don't DO anything! variety at the screen. Still, the fact remains: We used to watch (some of us secretly). Now we're not. And I'm not buying the explanations being floated across the Internet today; some theorize that Khloe and Lamar's recent struggles have hurt the numbers, others claim that fallout from Kim's marriage-divorce-baby cycle simply wore fans out. I say: not a chance. Negative

  • 13 Things I Learned from Miley: The Movement

    by Megan Angelo

    Steve EichnerSteve Eichner What with her documentary airing last night and her SNL hosting gig coming up, this is officially the week of Miley. Let's be honest: this is officially the year of Miley. And I know I might make some of you mad by saying this, but I'm not mad. Am I going to pretend I enjoyed the VMA performance? I am not.

    But I like the new music, I've loved the hair since the beginning, and I generally just think she's getting more flack than she deserves. Plus, what I saw when I watched Miley: The Movement on MTV last night was a girl who knows what she's doing (at least to the extent we all do, which is to say she's not perfect) and still has the infectious spirit we all fell in love with on Hannah Montana. (And yes, by "we," I do mean ladies like me, who at the time had aged out well of the Disney Channel demo but still loved it.) For me, these were the most fascinating Miley doc takeaways:

    Miley's an old soul. I think because she's younger than me, it tickled me to hear her say

  • Think You Know Chelsea Clinton? Think Again

    America sees her as the polished, private daughter of the world's most famous power couple. But the real Chelsea is a woman all her own, with a happy marriage, baby plans, and, as Glamour discovered when we joined her on a trip to Africa, a job she absolutely loves.
    by Genevieve Roth

    Jason Bell Chelsea Clinton, 33, is having a Fear Factor moment. We are at a primary school on the outskirts of Kigali, Rwanda. She is standing on the school's field, wearing a trim white blazer and jeans and surrounded by a group of students in vibrant yellow and blue uniforms. The kids crowd around, mouths open and eyes wide with anticipation. On a table in front of Chelsea and her father, President Bill Clinton, sits a bucket of water so thick with grime you could lose the sun in it. In a few minutes, Chelsea is going to drink this water.

    Chelsea dumps a small packet of powder into the bucket and begins to stir. While she and her father take turns with the spoon, representatives from the Clinton Foundation and

  • The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson Talks Love Off and on the Big Screen

    by Ashley Edwards Walker

    Scott Rudd/WWDScott Rudd/WWDHe's acted in almost 40 films, but before last year you probably only knew Josh Hutcherson, 20, from his role as the son of a lesbian couple in 2010's The Kids Are All Right. It wasn't until getting cast as Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games--one third of the Katniss-Gale-Peeta love triangle--that he became paparazzi-stalked and face-on-a-T-shirt famous. As he and the rest of the world gear up for November's release of the trilogy's second film, Catching Fire, the Kentucky native (who is, honestly, the nicest) talked to Glamour about costars, chemistry, and dating in Hollywood.

    GLAMOUR: What was it like being back on set with everyone?

    JOSH HUTCHERSON: Jennifer [Lawrence] and I were nervous about our new costars because we're kind of crazy when we're together, so it can be a little scary for the new people. But everybody jumped right in. It was a fun vibe on set.

    GLAMOUR: You and Jennifer are friends in real life. Is it weird having to switch to a romantic

  • 6 Surprising Things About Elsa Pataky, Chris Hemsworth's Wife

    by Marissa Gold

    Getty Images When I first saw Chris Hemsworth in Thor, my brain was confused as to how someone can be that hot. Then, when I started seeing pictures of Chris Hemsworth in real life, carrying around his cute little baby, my brain pretty much exploded.

    We're all going to be seeing a lot of Chris Hemsworth this fall because his new movie Rush hits theaters today, and Thor: The Dark World comes out November 8. And wherever Chris Hemsworth goes, his wife Elsa Pataky goes too. And that brings me to the subject of this post.

    Naturally, when you are happily married to one of the hottest men in Hollywood, people are going to be curious about you. I expected Pataky would be hot, but I didn't expect to find out that she may also have mythical powers. She's been adored by not one, not two, but three famous men and basically seems like the coolest person ever. Let me explain:

  • And the Highest-Earning Celebrity Couples (Besides Jay-Z and Beyonce, Obviously) Are

    by Anna Moeslein

    Steve Eichner OK, so I'll just get the obvious out of the way: Jay-Z and Beyonce were the highest-earning celebrity couple this year, according to Forbes. Duh.

    When you factor in Jay's platinum Watch the Throne album, his Barclays Center partial ownership, the new Roc Nation Sports, and his other many business ventures with Beyonce's Mrs. Carter world tour, House of Dereon clothing line, and Pepsi partnership, we're talking A LOT of money. Heaps and heaps of money. No question they're rich as h-ll, that's for sure.

    But some of the others in Forbes' list were a little surprising to me: For example, I would not have guessed that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen would be No. 2. It makes sense when you add up the numbers, though: She's the highest-paid model in the world, and Brady pulls in various lucrative endorsement deals, plus there was that whole $30 million New England Patriots signing bonus. Not too shabby...

  • Wait, Where's the Money Going? 4 Things that Are Hurting Your Cash Flow

    by Anna Davies

    Rex USA/Getty ImagesRex USA/Getty Images Here's an eye-opener from financial literacy adviser Clare Levison, C.P.A.: "I see so many smart, successful young women making the same cash-flow mistakes and just assuming it'll all work out financially." Truth is, those bad habits cost us a lot--in one recent survey, a whopping 60 percent of women admitted to carrying a credit card balance. We can do better, ladies! For starters, beware these all-too-common pitfalls:

    What it is:
    As your income rises--even a little bit--"lifestyle creep kicks in," says Manisha Thakor, a financial adviser and coauthor of Get Financially Naked. "Even luxuries like an expensive workout class become your new 'necessities,'" a real issue in certain cities like San Francisco or New York, where the cost of living is higher already.
    What to do: It's fine to upgrade your lifestyle when you get a raise--within reason, says Levison. "Put 80 percent of any salary bump into savings," she says. "The rest is fun money; blow it all

    Getty ImagesGetty ImagesIn the celebrity era of over-the-top vow renewals and what seems like weekly frolics on exotic beach vacations (OK, fine, we're jealous of that one), it's totally refreshing when a famous couple seems not only genuinely happy in their marriage but capable of celebrating it in a low-key way that doesn't seem like they have anything to prove.

    Hence, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds just made us feel all warm and bubbly inside with their first anniversary as a married couple. Via People, they celebrated like pretty much any other Regular Non-Famous Couple would do: They hit up a restaurant they've been wanting to try and stuffed their faces (I'm guessing). While visiting Savannah, Georgia, the unreasonably good-looking couple stopped by Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, telling the owner they had never been able to get in before. Adorable detail: The all-you-can-eat restaurant serves down-home Southern favorites, which was a

  • Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Are Expecting a Baby!

    by Anna Moeslein

    Getty ImagesGetty ImagesMuch like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds--if you haven't heard about their adorable low-key wedding anniversary yet, I suggest you take a break to read up on it--I've always gotten the impression that Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are that couple you want to best friends with and go on super-awesome double dates where you trade The Devil Wears Prada and Office quotes all night.

    So, because in my mind we are buddies, I am so excited that John and Emily are expecting their first child, according to Us Weekly! No word yet on whether they are expecting a boy or girl, but the baby is due "in just a few months' time."

    Yay! Congrats to the happy couple!
