Do It For The Culture: A Gift Guide

11 gifts for the lover of old and new classics, including Eggo's that never can be eaten or stolen for Rob Kardashian.

Let's see. There's a polar vortex, you hate crowds, it's prime shopping season, and you promised not to give ties, wine, Visa gift cards, or perfume this year as gifts. Why did you make that promise again?! Welp, since you decided to operate ass a human and not a universal credit card gift card giver, here are some creative ideas to show how much you actually do know the future recipients of the best gifts they've gotten in years.

Oh, it’s not a Christmas party. It’s a non-denominational holiday mixer.

Not only was this Tipsy Elves sweater in Office Christmas Party starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, and Jennifer Aniston, the company was featured in the new age cult classic, The Night Before With Seth Rogen. They also have t-shirts, pajamas and dresses, and a massive sale before the end of the year. aEven more enticing, they also have super fast shipping, just in case you need time to inflate your girlfriend for the office Christmas Party Non-Denominational holiday party.

Raise your hand if you know what iconic Meg Ryan scene this question was asked after. Hint, Meg Ryan was proving what all women know and all men deny about bedroom festivities. The iconic NY institution Katz's Delicatessen is now offering the Taste of New York package. I'm talking pastrami, corned beef, rye bread, bagels, pickles, and sauerkraut. Enough meat to make up for whatever you've been lacking.

Get In Formation like Issa Rae

Hot sauce, crawfish, and Beyonce? Yes, please. As seen on HBO and Issa Rae's hit show, Insecure, these Unisex t shirts appropriately titled, "I Slay" on Etsy's PopAesthete shop should arrive just in time for Christmas, but even if they don't there is no expiration date on slayage, there might be one on hot sauce, but the bottles never make it that long in my house, anyway.

For the friend stuck between Real Housewife and Real Mess

You know the great thing about the holidays? You meet up with your friends and re-enact your glory days of high school, college, your first apartment, or whatever life-changing stage of young to early adulthood that cemented the fact that you would be best friends forever. You know the not-so great thing about the holidays? You might be able to party like you used to, but the recovery time? Nah. The bounce back lacks elasticity. Let's try something new this year. Instead of lamenting that you will never drink again while the room is spinning as you lay on the bathroom floor, take preventive measures for you and your friends with Adrienne Maloof's (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) Never Too Hungover Prevention. They have 6 packs on sale, so stuff a couple of stockings, or hoard them for yourself and prepare yourself to star in the next holiday crisis- Help, My Body Hurts But all I Did Was Dance! Also, to that annoying friend that needs to know what's in everything even thought they guzzled a 1.5 of fireball, the hangover prevention supplement is made from potassium, milk thistle, vitamin B, green tea extract and aloe vera.

Why window shop when you own this?

Appropriately titled "Look Back At It" these Fenty for Stance by Rihanna (that's a mouthful) hosiery is sure to stuff a stocking or two. Buy them for a friend (read: me), a lover, or yourself and watch the excitement from watching you walk away take on new life . Not your fave? No worries, "that Rihanna reign just wont letup." Stance boasts a whole RihRih line . An added bonus is that the site also has men's and children's socks for the ultimate sport's fan or the prettiest of princesses (or princes).

I know he's the bad guy, but can we agree that now is a perfect time to appreciate the leader of the Saviors? I mean, Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the villain so well on The Walking Dead that I tune in just to see him ruin lives. The bad guy not your thing? There are many other characters and cult classics to choose from Including "We're all infected" tumblers and Game of Thrones water bottles.

Don't You Dare Be Sour

I remember my first Odd Sox purchase. I was getting ready for the On The Run Tour (still my favorite concert I've seen live to date) and my friend needed some socks. If you haven't noticed by now, I cannot complete any task simply. Noooooo. I was on a conquest to find the most unusual, but appropriately themed socks that also had white, black, and a hint of gold. Guys. I found the cutest boombox socks and began a torrid gifting love affair. There is not a passion or hobby that the socks don't directly or indirectly cover, thus these eggo gems perfect for Rob Kardashian after that nasty insta-expose with Black Chyna. Added bonus, there is a 40% off sale on the site right now. You're welcome.

For the Wonder Woman in your life. Or the Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez wore them , but honestly, it has not been about them in years. What better way to show sentimental value than gifting the person who stops you from sending that drunk text or almost quitting your job for the fifty eleventh time a sun-stache representation of how you view them. Also, no big deal, but the company's founders were a Shark Tank favorite, so double bonus points if your recipient thinks they know a winning business concept when pitched.

Let the Force Be With You

One of the many gems my late grandmother, affectionately called Granny, dropped was, "Everyone needs a good cross pen." When you can pretend that the fancy pen is a light saber while doing completely soul sucking adult things like paying bills, a cross pen becomes more desirable. Wasn't a big fan of the most recent Star Wars film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ? Star Wars purist will take solace in the fact that the Towsend collection pays tribute to three of the most iconic characters from the 1977 film Star Wares: Episode IV A New Hope. They also have a Century II Marvel Collection for the superhero in your life, even if that super hero is you.

Oh, my God, we killed Kenny.

So this is the workaround to the 'No Visa Gift Cards!" Rule (which again, I think is unfair, because one can pay bills, eat out, and do other things that may not be in their budget, but, fine). Convenient and sentimental, a gift card to a favorite streaming service means that you listened to that friend when they complained that they couldn't stream South Park, Broad City and Wayward Pines. Check out PayPal or Gift Card Mall for purchase, or if you are feeling really adventurous, your local Target, Walmart, or Best Buy also works.

It's all cool now, we're all little kids at heart- Chance the Rapper, Nostalgia

When childhood meets leather it's always a good experience( see bedroom swings, Doc Martens, onesies, and backpacks). In comes this perfect stocking stuffer and drinking game for game nights. The collaboration, which features adult stories and an undeniable bout of childhood nostalgia, are available on The Spare Room's online store for $10. Quick! Noun, noun, verb, adjective, adverb!

On last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, everyone’s very favorite 90210 resident bad girl, Brandi Glanville, was hosting a house warming party at her brand new pad—which I may add, is pretty damn sick.

Following years of turmoil and struggles after her scumbag then-husband, Eddie Cibrian, cheated on her with Leann Rimes, Brandi finally feels like this is the start of the rest of her life. We’ll drink to that girlfriend!

Meanwhile, Kyle Richards was at her house getting ready for the shindig. Despite their past drama, Kyle seemed genuinely happy for Brandi. Someone who wasn’t so happy for Brandi? Lisa Vanderpump….But more on that later.

Yolanda Foster and the newest bitch on the block, Eileen Davidson, made their way down from Malibu. Lisa Rinna and her incredible lips were also in attendance. She said she admires Brandi and can relate to her because she’s a hustler. She understands that as a single mom she has to do whatever she can to provide for herself and her child.

As Popdust previously reported, last week, Brandi practically begged Queen Vanderpump to come to her party while at Kyle’s backyard BBQ. Surprisingly, the British beauty deigned to grace the party goers with her regal presence and Brandi looked like she shit herself. Queen V, who looked as enthused as a dying cow to be there, said that it was easier for her to pretend and play nice, than stir the pot and feed into the drama. Meanwhile, Adrienne Maloof and her ratchet extensions also came out to play for the evening, as well as Leeza Gibbons…. ‘Twas a truly motley crew, ya’ll.

Lisa V walked over and greeted Brandi’s parents—they began to talk about Brandi’s crazy temper and Lisa said she blamed them. Oh, how sweet! Thankfully, they appeared to know she’s certified for a straight jacket, so they took her for what she is and just rolled with her insanity.

Talking of insanity, later in the evening, Kim Richards decided to toast to Brandi and her success. While it was nice for like 5 seconds, it turned corny pretty damn fast. All the women stood up and gave a speech, saying how amazing Brandi is….like they were giving the eulogy at her funeral. Side note—remember when Brandi called Kim a meth addict? Their friendship warms my blackened little heart.

Later, Kyle sat down with Brandi to recap the night. They immediately brought up Lisa V…While Brandi said she was thrilled that Lisa actually came to the party, she admitted she felt that she was now in a much better place than when they were friends. However, she still wants to sit down with her to talk things out.

Lisa Rinna was guest-hosting Access Hollywood. She talked about the need to stay relevant in Tinsel Town, so any job that comes her way is exciting. Truth be told, she’s the coolest chick of them all. She’s shameless and she owns it…plus, she just seems to be a really good sort, and a girls’ girl… gotta love that.

Meanwhile, Eileen went paddle boarding in Malibu. She spoke about how vital it is to stay in shape in the entertainment business, so she tries to keep her workouts fun and exciting. Honey, there is absolutely nothing fun or exciting about the gym.

Kyle was at home with her family and they all praised Portia for making a sandwich like she literally just found a miraculous solution to the problem of world hunger. Kyle said that Mauricio had never made a sandwich in his life and that none of her kids know how to do laundry. Really? I am SHOCKED.

Lisa V invited all the ladies to a charity function she was hosting at PUMP. The event was supporting young foster girls, so she asked everyone to bring old dresses and accessories from their closets. Lisa R, Eileen and Yolanda all arrived with their clothes in hand. Yolanda made a snarky comment to Lisa about how she didn’t invite her to the PUMP opening. Lisa couldn’t have given two shits. Brandi arrived shortly after. Despite things being “fine” between them, you could still cut the tension with a knife from PUMP’s kitchen. Brandi admits that Lisa makes her nervous and she’s not even sure why. Kim showed up and turned down the booze for some coffee.

Brandi was happily kissing Lisa’s ass the entire event. In an attempt to break the ice, she ripped a branch off Lisa’s tree. Let’s just say the queen wasn’t too pleased. Brandi tried to make it better by asking her if she wanted her to lick her pussy.

Yep. Really. You read that correctly.

The conversation at the table then took a quick turn to discussing the term “cunnilingus”. Yolanda had no fucking clue what it means. She thought it was the name of a Chinese vegetable or a cigarette. Lisa said she needed to leave to go to SUR, so the ladies relocated to a different restaurant for another glass of wine.

While Brandi was casually asking to eat Lisa’s pussy, she also asked her to go to lunch. Lisa would rather stick her hand in a blender, but told her she’d “think about it”.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs every Tuesday on Bravo at 9pm.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gave us a glimpse into the world of Brandi Glanville and her never ending moving journey. She stalked her ex-boyfriend, slept with the kid that moved her furniture into her new house, and made amends with Adrienne Maloof. Another day in the life, folks.

Brandi moved into yet another home. It’s her fifth move in five years! Kim Richards was there to help get her organized, as well as catch up on all the gossip from Kyle Richards' party last week. As we saw last week, Brandi separated herself from the group the entire night and was scared shitless to speak to any of the women for more than ten seconds. Brandi asked Adrienne to meet for coffee so they could clear the air from their massive blow up fight a few years back. She infamously proclaimed to the world that Adrienne did, in fact, have her children via surrogate. Brandi wanted to finally apologize for being a scumbag? Hell is freezing over. Anyways, Brandi had a squad of super young, hot guys come over to help move her furniture. Perhaps that’s the real reason she moves every fifteen minutes!

Kyle and her husband were getting ready to take their family away to Lake Tahoe for vacation. Kyle talked about how her husband hates flying because of the busy airports and all the kids, so they fly private. She laughs about how when they first got married they didn’t have any money and would make the kids pretend to be under two to get a free seat. THANK GOD they have their own plane now. The horror of an airport is just too much for the Richards’ clan to endure.

The newest 90210 housewife, Lisa Rinna, met with her new agent to discuss potential projects. Rinna isn’t shy about saying she’ll do anything for a quick buck, including a Depends commercial back in 2012. She’s just trying to make a dollar in these streets, ya’ll.

Lisa Vanderpump, along with her friend Shiva, took a trip to Michael Beaudry’s fabulous jewelry store in Beverly Hills. Shiva is the fiancée of Mohammed Hadid, Lisa’s best friend and Yolanda Foster’s ex-husband. Interesting, right? Lisa talked about how simple her friendship with Shiva is. They can laugh, joke, and be themselves without being questioned by anyone. This was obviously a dig at the other housewives, who all ganged up on her last season. Lisa was shopping for a birthday gift for herself from her husband, Ken. She ultimately decided to go with a $250,000 pink sapphire cocktail ring. I think last year I got a Starbuck’s gift card and an ice cream cake.

Yolanda always talks about how important it is to keep the romance alive with your significant other. With that said, she decided to cook dinner for her husband, David Foster, in skimpy lingerie. The couple had dinner overlooking the ocean at their beach front Malibu estate. I suppose the Olive Garden just doesn’t get the job done anymore. Endless breadsticks doesn’t turn you on, Yolanda?

Brandi went to Kim’s house to hang out and discuss the status of her relationship with her on/off boyfriend, J.R. She confessed that she hooked up with one of the hot movers from her house. While she said they didn’t sleep together, she had quite a few hickies on her neck to prove they got down to business regardless. Her current relationship status with J.R. is up in the air. He cheated on her, but she’d consider taking him back. Kim feels that if Brandi sees him together with another girl that it will give her the push to end the relationship all together. They decide to dress up like assholes in wigs and cowboy hats to go hide in a bush. They go sit outside of a restaurant waiting for J.R., only to find him walking to his car—alone. Rule #1: don’t ever listen to Kim Richards.

Yolanda invited Kim over to go horseback riding in Malibu. Yolanda claims she “had no idea” she would be a model because she only ever cared about horses growing up. Yeah, you’re drop dead gorgeous and thought you would be a truck driver, right? Kim and Yolanda have certainly had a rocky relationship in the past, but Yolanda feels like a big sister to her. They discussed how all of their children are leaving the nest and heading for college. Yolanda is really feeling the struggle of having two stunning super models in college…

Brandi finally met with Adrienne for lunch. She was shitting herself with nerves the entire day. Adrienne, who has so much plastic surgery I CAN NOT EVEN, was actually really receptive to Brandi’s apology. Personally, I’d light that bitch on fire for doing what she said, but, hey, maturity is a wild concept. Adrienne agrees to move on from their issues and be friendly with one another when they’re in the same social circle. No hair pulling? No name calling? No drinking throwing? Good job, Brandi! You took your Xanax!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are back and better than ever!

Having had a pretty rough season last year with many of the group’s friendships ending, it seemed like it couldn’t get much worse. Two new cast members have joined the gang to shake things up like only the housewives of Beverly Hills know how to do!

Kyle Richards is in the midst of planning her annual “White Party”. The bash, which once was a backyard party at Kyle’s home, has turned into a huge event that every shameless reality star in Hollywood fights to attend. In their defense, that Fatburger truck outside her house is enough to make me fight a few bitches for a spot on that guest list, too.

Beverly Hills’ resident shit starter Brandi Glanville is back and seeming slightly subdued. After last season, Brandi managed to ruin most of her friendships with the other housewives, including her former bestie Lisa Vanderpump. Brandi decided to go visit Yolanda Foster in Malibu at her home that is the size of a small country. The two took a walk on the beach and discussed the ins and outs of each other’s lives. Yolanda talks about her ever changing family, as her two daughters are taking over the modeling world and going to school in New York. Brandi, who seems to never keep a home for more than a month, says that everything is fine and dandy in her life - we’re not buying it. Last season she turned everyone against Lisa and now she’s still trying to get back in her good graces. Bye Felicia.

Lisa and Kyle met for lunch to talk about the status of their friendship. It’s no secret that they have had a roller coaster relationship since the show began, but last season really took a toll after Lisa revealed rumors of Kyle’s husband, Mauricio and his infidelity. They hashed it out over a few glasses of wine because being drunk around this crew is the only way to survive. Kyle feels that Lisa can never take accountability for her actions, but they agree to bury the hatchet and move forward. They’ll be screaming at each other by episode 3.

Lisa Rinna has joined the cast and her 5 five minutes of screen time have confirmed that she is batshit crazy and perfect for this hot mess of a television show. She lives in Beverly Hills with her husband, Harry Hamlin, who she creepily calls “the king”, as well as their two teenage daughters. She’s a self-proclaimed family woman and says she’ll do anything for a dollar----the main ingredients of a lunatic Real Housewife. We’re sold, Rinna!

The day of the White Party has arrived and all the women are expected to be in attendance. Lisa’s husband, Ken, would rather play in oncoming traffic than go to the party and his former friend, Brandi, feels the same way. She is rummaging around her shady condo (seriously thought why does this chick have a new house every five minutes?) in a robe talking about how nervous she is to see the other women. After last season and the shit you caused, we’d be buggin’ out a little bit too.

The original bitches of 90210 returned to the scene! Camille Grammer arrived looking gorgeous and healthy after her battle with cancer last year. Adrienne Maloof brought along her 20-something year old new boyfriend, as well as a new face that cannot move. Taylor Armstrong and her new husband made their first appearance since tying the knot earlier this year. Lisa arrived with pink streaks in her hair.

“My dog is pink so why shouldn’t my pussy be?” was a statement from Vanderpump’s mouth that made us throw up in our mouths a bit. Brandi stood in the corner for most of the evening looking like she could shit her pants at any given second. Hmmmm, dare we say karma? Anyway, she asked if she could pull Adrienne aside to speak with her. Brandi and Adrienne infamously had a falling out when Brandi revealed that Adrienne had her children via a surrogate. Adrienne agreed to meet for coffee, but something tells us the claws are gonna come out………or the little anorexic barking Chihuahua.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo!

It wouldn’t be an episode of The Real Housewives if there weren’t tears, screaming, and some good ol’ fashioned name-calling!

Here’s Popdust’s ranking of the top craziest fights, insane meltdowns and berserk brawls—with videos.

8. Brandi Glanville Vs. Kim and Kyle Richards—Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Word to the wise: don’t mess with the Richards sisters! The claws came out at game night when Brandi Glanville accused Kim Richards of using crystal meth. This bomb was dropped after Brandi watched Kim make several trips to the bathroom throughout the night. Prior to the drug usage claim, Kim and Kyle Richards lashed out at Brandi for her poor parenting skills after her son peed on Adrienne Maloof’s lawn. Kyle screamed that Brandi was “trashy and classless” so Brandi fired back at her saying, “at least I don't do crystal meth in the bathroom all night”. Ahhhh, meth accusations…. Classic comeback.

7. Tamra Barney Vs. Jeana Keough—Real Housewives of Orange County

Wives throwing wine! Here we have a showdown between veteran OC housewife Jeana Keough and the resident troublemaker Tamra Barney. While at Vicki Gunvalson’s “end of the summer” bash, the two women got into a heated argument regarding comments that Jeana supposedly made about Tamra to the press. Tamra went as far as sending a cease and desist letter to Jeana. These housewives ain’t playin! Jeana told Tamra she was going to “throw her ass in the pool”, so Tamra threw a glass of wine all over Jeana. Orange County----the land of bleached hair, fake boobs, and women of pure class. Right……

6. Nene Leakes Vs. Kim Zolciak—Real Housewives of Atlanta

The former BFFs went AT IT during a trip to Miami with their fellow housewives. Kim Zolciak decided to bring her assistant, Sweetie, along for the vacay. Nene Leakes felt it was no longer a girls’ weekend because Kim brought along people on her payroll. The two went at each other’s necks after Nene infamously said Kim treated Sweetie as her slave. Nothing like a good bus brawl!

5. Kelly Bensimon Vs. The World—Real Housewives of New York City

In this infamous incident, Kelly Bensimon lost her mind on Bethenny Frankel. The two had an ongoing feud all of season three, but shit really hit the fan when the ladies were on vacation in the Virgin Islands. Kelly accused Alex McCord of "channeling the devil” and believed that Bethenny was trying to kill her. She made dozens of bizarre comments and referenced Al Sharpton so many times that we’re still confused. Then, she pretended like everything was fine and ran around the house like an uncaged zoo animal offering jellybeans to the ladies. Moral of the story kids: don’t do drugs.

4. Kim Richards Vs. Kyle Richards—Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

The Richards sisters famously had a screaming match in a limo during the first season. Kim accused Kyle of stealing her "goddamn house".  Kyle then screamed at Kim reminding her about all the help (aka money) her husband had lent to her. In addition, Kyle called her an alcoholic. It was an all out screaming match that ended with both women crying and visibly upset (even if their Botox-filled faces didn’t move).

3. Vicki Gunvalson Vs. Gretchen Rossi—Real Housewives of Orange County

Vicki Gunvalson and Gretchen Rossi never really saw eye to eye, but they made do for the many seasons they spend alongside each other in the OC. Slade Smiley, Gretchen’s deadbeat boyfriend, infamously called Vicki “ugly”. He even went as far as to compare her to Miss Piggy. Naturally, Vicki ripped both Slade and Gretchen new assholes at a 80s themed party.

2. Adriana de Moura Vs. Joanna Krupa—Real Housewives of Miami

These two Miami beauties came to blows at a charity event (class acts, right?) over an argument about none other than Girls Gone Wild scumbag Joe Francis. Adriana de Moura was originally arguing with another housewife over comments she made to the media, so Joanna Krupa stepped in. Joe Francis claimed that he had slept with both Krupa and her sister. Joanna swore it never happened. Adriana said, “Joe Francis was right, they're just Polish immigrants trying to get a plate to eat food in.” Joanna cornered Adrianna until she socked her in the face----because that’s just how these Housewives roll.

1. Teresa Giudice Vs. Danielle Staub—Real Housewives of New Jersey

In quite possibly the most memorable moment in Housewives history, Teresa Giudice flipped the table in a fit of rage during an argument with Danielle Staub. The ladies went at it when Teresa revealed Danielle’s secret book to the party. She famously called Danielle a “prostitution whore” and then proceeded to flip the entire dinner table. PAY ATTENTION, PUHHLEASE!

Brace yourselves, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans - Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer are coming back to the show!

That's right - cray-cray Maloof, who left on the WORST terms, is being brought back to fill the gap left by Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud.

Camille, you might remember, was absolutely batshit off-her-rocker in season one but quickly learned how to hide it and became unbelievably boring.

The ladies won't be on full time, instead being considered more as "friends of the Housewives".

Let's see what happens!
