Anna Faris on Conan discussing her Barbie whorehouse. I am so glad I’m not alone in that one, am I right, girls? I know a lot has been said about gender normative roles and realistic body figures on dolls, but truth be told: most of us made those hos TWERK! I will never forget the time my BFF/neighbor Ashley* (name changed to protect the innocent) got in trouble for the following:
Ashley: I’m going to go upstairs and have sex with my husband!
Ellen: Sounds awesome!
Ashley’s mom: ASHLEY [MIDDLE NAME] [LAST NAME]—WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?????
Ashley: (gulp) I’m going to go upstairs and have sex with my husband?
Ashley’s mom: I’m going to wash your mouth out with soap! Get in the kitchen. NOW!
Ashley: You better go home.
Ashley’s mom: You need to go home, Ellen, so I can wash Ashley’s mouth out with soap!!!!
AND SCENE. Truly one of the most horrific/hilarious moments of my childhood. Do parents really wash their kids’ mouths out with soap or is that just an old-fashioned threat? I’ll never know what happened to Ashley that day but I did always envy her for having that gigantic Barbie mansion—that we pretended to live in together and have sex with our husbands in?! At least we were thinking marriage. Ah, to be a girl in the 90’s…
