…and 50 Shades of Grey. Yeah, even your nerdy hostesses with the mostesses are not immune to poorly-written-yet-addictive suburban BDSM. So sue us.

Don’t miss the LA Ink Stains Prom! Or the super awesome comic book.

We’re (begrudgingly) giving it up for HBO’s Girls.
We read 50 Shades of Grey like it was our job. Our low-paying, unfulfilling, terribly embarrassing job.
