It’s super awkward to hear Amy’s full-of-hope voice speak of UVA men’s basketball when they lost in the first round of the tourney only a week or so later. Ouch.
This week, the Hungry Girls review the L’Oreal loot and they are living for it. Then Paula discusses the Oscars and how everyone ignored Ryan Seacrest, except for Taraji P Henson who read him like a book. Amy explains why Jessica Chastain is just perfect.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
During the Fucked Up Shit, we try to answer the question, “How much is a black life worth?” It comes because Tulsa County pays $6 million to the family of Eric Harris who was shot and killed by a FAKE police officer because white people are terrible.
Paula explains why weight loss is not an accomplishment. She talks about Paul Campos’s book “The Obesity Myth” and “Secrets from the Eating Lab” by Traci Mann. Both Hungry Girls are super jazzed about Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James being at Eloquii. r
Amy shouts out Kevin Love for openly discussing his anxiety disorder in the Mental Health Minute.

This week’s recommendations are to stop using soap and how to follow hashtags on Instagram.

The Fucked Up Shit is that the NRA is racist. UM. NOT at all surprised.

This week, we have very special guests — Amy’s parents!! And that’s Amy’s mom doing the intro!! Isn’t she adorable and Southern?

Sarah Silverman is a bad-ass. She’s capable of being compassionate and disarming and FUNNY. Paula explains how. It takes such strong ovaries to love the cunt-callers. (Shout out to our friend Paige.)
Justin Timberlake is back and we have mixed feelings. Amy was not prepared for the anti-JT feelings that Paula is feeling very deeply.
Amy wonders if Caroline Manzo is the prophet we didn’t know we had and what would happen if pot were legal. Amy is very uncomfortable that pot is now super trendy for white people. It’s both good and bad. Pot is now a wellness movement. Gag.
This week’s Makeup Minute highlights some E.L.F. products that Amy bought. First up is this chubby thick eye primer. She also got a tapered eyeliner brush for eyeshadow and a great eye shadow palate. Don’t forget to put a little brightening concealer on the sides of each nostril and in the corners of the mouth. Paula recommends Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radience.
The fat-phobic disaster of the week is some douche on Bumble. But we love the dating app because they stick up for women. See you never, fat-shamer!
The body politics win is learning that exercise is a celebration of what your body can do! Read this awesome blog post by Melissa Toler, and then this bad-ass quote by our friend Virgie.
Diet culture does one thing very successfully: it alienates us from our natural relationship to food and movement, things that we as human beings have had a relationship to since the beginning of time, and which we cannot live without, and it sells them back to us as “diet” and “exercise” with the promise that with hard work and self-denial we can achieve a state worthy of love, respect and admiration.
The recommendations are the docu-series The Staircase and the movie Call Me By Your Name.
This week Amy finally comes clean about her Boob Issue. Her bloody tits should be in a Rob Zombie movie, but Dr. Molly Sebastian (M-Seb) is taking very good care of her. Then Amy tells a funny story about a “female coworker” to whom she showed her bloody boob at brunch. She didn’t get Matt’s permission to tell the story ahead of time, but we all know it was him, so now we can give him credit for his funny jokes.
The Fat-Phobic Disaster of the Week is Wish and the way they advertised their tights, which is by putting tiny Kendall Jenner type people inside them instead of large ladies. So dumb. Do better, Wish, although we will still shop on you.
The Body Politics Win goes to Beanie Feldstein who begs us to “stop talking about [her] body!” Please read her amazing letter on Refinery 29.
