Growing up in a family of artists, Marjane Satrapi was encouraged to develop her love of American comics, Bruce Lee, and sassy heroines into a life committed to comic books.

Before he adorned the feet of everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker and Princess Maxima of the Netherlands to the lesser Kardashians and Chad Ochocino, Christian Louboutin was just a lonely Parisian boy (with an adorable flat cap to boot).

Article: Robert Redford talks Sundance Channel and our 'independent spirit'

Robert Redford didn’t just create the Sundance Film Festival, he also started Sundance Channel (thanks for that, btw). So when he stopped by to catch up (and make sure we were all doing our jobs correctly) he opened up about the challenges starting a channel pose for someone so rooted in the indie world. It all worked out and now Sundance Channel is expanding the audience for the types of films Sundance was started to foster. It’s always nice to hear the boss say you are on the right track. Check out all of what Redford has to say on representing the ‘independent spirit’ over on our video page, or right here:

Being a gay dad in Nashville looks hard. We’re guessing Peter is the only gay parent in his daughter’s class. Hopefully we’re only seeing the most dramatic tidbit of this conversation here, because we want to see hugs in a situation like this. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Just admit it. You don’t really want to go out on New Year’s Eve. It’s amateur hour! Someone will probably puke on you and you won’t be able to get a cab. And if you don’t live someplace with cabs there is a good chance 90% of people on the road will be drunk. Do yourself a favor and stay in.

We’ve all got problems, especially around this time of year. And if your biggest problem is that your pregnant best friend likes to go to bed at 10 p.m. and can’t get drunk with you…then consider yourself lucky? We’ve already got a drunk uncle crashing on the couch, a sibling in the midst of a nervous breakdown and a mother who swears she’s not coming over unless her three teacup Yorkies get to sit at the dinner table. C’mon Peter, you’ve made THREE babies, you must know how this works.

We spoke to your dog. And he’d really appreciate it you didn’t buy him some sweater for Christmas. It’s just, you know, he thinks it is really undignified to dress an animal up like that.

There are a few situations when it is OK to lie on a first date. If your date asks an inappropriate question, for example, it’s ok to fib instead of dodge. And if you met online, but your paramour looks and acts like a completely different person in the flesh, it’s ok to smile and nod before you run away, never to be seen or heard from again. This week’s deleted scene, however, has got to mark the first time we’ve ever heard anybody lie about not being able to swim.

We get it. You came here hoping for an extra bit of Jared’s sex tape. You’ll have to go digging around on the Internet to find that yourself (and then post a link for us, obviously). We’re not doing that because we want to end up on Santa’s nice list. And we’re not the only ones getting ready for the holidays. Sherrié and Shane have a little Christmas single they’ve been working on.
