How To Lose A Guy in 30 Days

Gasp! A whole week, and no blog post?! Fret not, friends…I did write, just not for this blog (I know! It’s like I cheated on myself or something.) Check out a piece I wrote for MTV Voices on how Ramadan affects one’s “dating” life, “How to Lose A Guy in 30 Days” (shout-out to comedian Aman …

My Problem with Pakistan: From Sesame Street to Twitter

  Dear Pakistan, Can you stop being so f-ing dramatic? Ack – what? That’s an inappropriate way to start a conversation? I apologize. I’m sorry. Allow me to (re)introduce myself – my name is Khan. Samia Khan. Digital Media personality. And half (some would argue “full”) Pakistani-American. Why the harsh words, you ask? Um. Because …

You Got Played: Which NBA Team is He?

The other day, I told someone they got played… specifically saying something to the extent of… “He played you like a Laker.” (Loose summary: she had high hopes, was let down in the end… yeah, you get it.) Then, because my mind works in a very tangential sense, I started trailing off and next thing …

Samia + Snooki = Slipper Sisters

So, I interviewed Snooki. Yes, THE Nicole Polizzi (Fun fact: people in her inner circle refer to her as “Nicole” – because well, when she’s out and about and the fans are screaming “Snooki”,  the important people can be differentiated. So stalkers/fans, take note…) I’ve never watched Jersey Shore…willingly, at least. I have a friend …

Keri Hilson…Don’t Hate Her Cause She’s Beautiful

I interview a lot of people. Famous people, in fact (which, I’m assuming you know, since well…you’re reading this blog.) And…I don’t get star struck. But every once in a while, I can become a little…“fan-like.” This usually happens whenever the person is from the 90’s, or related to music or basketball. Why? Because I …

Parks, Recreation, and…Mustaches?

OK so I have a confession… Everytime I see a mustache, I can’t help but laugh. OK maybe not laugh, but smile. Smirk. LOL in my head. And well, this past November was no exception… that’s when, thanks to a few dear friends (yes Waldo and Waseem, I’m talkin about you guys,) I learned about …

Jerry Seinfeld: My Relationship Ref

Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to watch Seinfeld. In fact, you’d typically hear my mom saying, “Samia, go to your room!” whenever my older brother was watching this (or Friends. I was also sent to my room when my dad watched “90210” and “Melrose Place.” Don’t ask me why my dad chose the programming he …

Rosie Reunion, Part 1

OK so I just sat in on a TCA panel featuring Rosie O’Donnell and Parker O’Donnell, who were here in LA promoting her new HBO doc “A Family Is A Family Is A Family” (Parker and Rosie? They’re…family.) Now this post isn’t to talk about the film, but rather, my reunion with Rosie. Wait…reunion?! I …

Do You Remember….My Night w/Jay Sean?

OK so let’s cut the BS. You know it, I know it, we all know it. I just haven’t well, addressed “it.” I’m brown. South Asian. From the Indian “subcontinent.” Rather, my parents are from there. Mom raised in Pakistan, dad raised in India. One arranged marriage and 30-something years later, their 24-year-old daughter is …
