Awkward
The sh*t has officially hit the fan. The dude database is hijacking Jenna and Tamara’s newsfeeds and turning Palos Hills High into a teen fight club. In “Awkward’s” “Hashtag Drama” ep, Jenna and Tamara get swept up in the fracas when Owen is rated #secrethottiewithabody. Thinking Jenna tagged him, he gives her a cheek kiss as gratitude. Problem is Tamara is the one that penned those kind words and for good reason. She hooked up with him. Did anyone else have this pop song in their head during the BFF’s dispute? Jenna’s attempts to apologize to Tamara only backfire when *NEWSFLASH*she makes ...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 14 Recap Welcome To Hell, Rejection And Acceptance

October 8th, 2014 11:13am EDT
Awkward
I have a greater appreciation for my generation where college rejection letters were literally a hard copy letter wrapped around a thin envelope of terror. And mailed to your home where you have the luxury, at the very least, to wallow in being cast off in solitude. Unfortunately Jenna’s plugged-in gen warrants a more fast-paced approach to getting that fateful response.

And how horrifying is it when our fav self-conscious gal doesn’t get the reaction she expects in a crowded classroom of college acceptees, including bestie Tamara? Epically disappointing enough to keep the truth on the D.L...

October 3rd, 2014 8:54am EDT
grey's anatomy
All the pieces in Maggie Pierce’s current life are, well, scattered; her social life consists of serial phone calls to her parents in avoidance of making friends and on-call rooms are used to complete crossword puzzles instead of in-hospital booty calls. While she seamlessly finds answers to medical mysteries, she’s lacking when it comes to resolutions in her personal life.

Makin’ the Rounds

The “Puzzle with a Piece Missing” opens with Maggie sharing, through a hijacked voiceover, a fun fact: Her record for “The New York Times” crossword puzzle is 11 minutes, which she hasn’t broken since...

“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?”

If it’s inching closer to midnight on New Year’s Eve without a male or female pucker in sight. Ab-so-lu-te-ly!! But Jenna would instruct us to do as she says and not as she does. And what she did was smooch a sophomore on the night’s most ChapStick worthy night. So, hold the phone, is Jenna a jr. cougar? Sound off in the comments below.

Let’s rewind to 3 or 4 hours before the midnight kissing madness began. While Lacey borrowed a sparkling number from Taylor Swift’s closet to wear to Ally’s New Year’s party, Jenna primed her ...

'Blue Bloods' Season 5 Premiere Recap: 'Partners'
The Reagan's are back and their blood is bluer than ever.

There's a reason that Danny's had a revolving door of partners: he's controlli...

Let’s cross our fingers and hope it’s not true, and in the meantime let’s jump off that mind blowing cliff hanger and onto a safe place of absolution found in ep. 12 “Finals.”

Jenna Gets Dumped (Again)
