The film has made its way into American pop-culture, and until today, has us all still saying that nearly everything in sight is so fetch and celebrating October 3rd as though it’s a holiday.  Here are some surprising facts about the movie, and where the stars are today.

The storyline is actually based off a book: Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and Other Realities of Adolescence. 

What Wig

Age Gaps
