From @elitedaily: “She was talking to Ellen about her alter ego, aptly named ‘Gail’ who only comes out when she starts drinking rum. Naturally, Ellen was prepared, and had a variety of rum cocktails to choose from as she's interviewing her.” “Naturally.” First, we love you @theellenshow but alcohol / alcohol jokes sure seem to be coming up a lot on your show. Secondly, this kind of story further normalizes the alcohol narrative. Isn’t it wacky a star drinks until her alter ego comes out? Don’t you want to be her best buddy? Um, no. Watching and listening people get so drunk they have an alter ego is not appealing. We know because we’ve been on both sides of that equation. Finally, what message does this send to the woman at home who is watching and may be struggling with alcohol use? We need to do better. #tellbetterstories#alcohol#media
The Ultimate Academy Awards Drinking Game
“You’ll be seeing stars of a different kind.” 🙄We remember when any event was an excuse to drink. This isn’t even about pairings, just straight to drinking games. Sticking with sparkling water tonight, thanks @tastingtable.
Kelly Clarkson Says 'Wine Is Necessary' When Raising Kids
“With all the crazy stuff going on these days, sometimes you need to take a break and drink during the afternoon.” -@latenightseth with @kellyclarkson. Hmmm... actually you don’t need to day drink. Or night drink. Or anytime drink. Alternate take: you can be funny without day drinking. You can also handle the things happening in the world. #tellbetterstories
