The Snob Talks Devious Maids, Paula Deen on NPR

Wednesday, The Snob made a return to the Beauty Shop on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin. We talked the new Eva Longoria produced show, Lifetime's Devious Maids, and whether or not it was more like "Devious Stereotypes." We discussed the recent Supreme Court rulings and the whole Paula Deen debacle. I was joined in the beauty shop with fellow regulars Viviana Hurtado, blogger-in-chief of the website The Wise Latina Club; Jane Delgado, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health and Bridget Johnson, editor for PJ Media.

The Snob Talks Lena Dunham's Boobs and Beyonce's Docu-Drama-Rama on NPR

The Snob returned to NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin for another round of the popular "Beauty Shop" segment. This time, myself, along with regulars Viviana Hurtado of The Wise Latina Club and Bridget Johnson with PJ Media, were talking about "Lady Power" in the form of Lena Dunham's floppy boobs being the other "stars" of her hit show "Girls," and Beyonce's recent HBO documentary where she declares her career independence while also shouting out her "loving" interdependence on hubby Jay-to-the-Izzo. Since I think all drama surrounding Dunham is hilarious (but in that "laughing at, not with" kind of way) and I think Beyonce is a huge try-hard whom I both love and cannot stand, I was full of opinions!
