Comedian and Author Julie Klausner: My Fave Five of 2009
What's that you say? You've grown hopelessly addicted to our Fave Fives, printing them up and amassing them like some crazy lady in Kentucky who lives up to her waist in decades of accumulated trash, filth and dessicated cat carcasses? (Sorry -- we watched Hoarders last night and it's hard to shake off.) Well then, you're in luck! Next up is New York-based comedian, author and sexpot Julie Klausner, whose book, I Don't Care About Your Band: What I Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I've Dated, comes out on Groundhog Day 2010. Click on to learn what five pop culture moments Julie deemed 2009's most essential.

"While mall-walkers ransacked shelves for a copy of Going Rogue, Mackenzie Phillips was quietly raising the stakes of the whole celebrity memoir game with this jaw-dropper. Now, it's going to take a lot more to shock America than confessing to preteen drug abuse, getting arrested for cocaine possession en route to The Rachael Ray Show, 'consensual incest', and aborting what may have very well been your rock star father's love child. And we haven't even discussed Schneider yet!"
