'Girl Code' Aha! Moment: Purses Turn Us Into Portable Hoarders

Whether it’s why you should love your boobs or why you should not cut your own bangs, MTV’s “Girl Code” delivers fresh insight about all-too-familiar topics, and is sure to sometimes have its female viewers fervently nodding their heads while mouthing to the television screen, “Yessss, exactllllly!!!” Oprah calls that kind of catharsis an “aha! moment,” which sounds like a positive thing, so we’re highlighting a different part of the show each week that made us feel like maybe, just maybe, we’re not the loner freaks we originally assumed. Take a look at the latest below.


If you've ever seen one of those "What's in your purse?" posts on Tumblr, then you're fully aware of how much JUNK the typical woman lugs around at all times. Sure, we need a safe place for our essentials (wallet, lipstick, spare tampon), but for some reason, our bags always turn into bottomless pits of broken sunglasses, uncapped pens, moist towelettes and anything else that we Must Absolutely Have With Us At All Times Or We'll Die.

In this clip form last night's "Girl Code," the cast members demonstrate just how much each of their pocketbooks will hold, and from oil-blotting pads to multiple boxes of UTI meds, the combined items could account for an entire pharmacy's inventory. But while some of the ladies have completely justifiable products in their bags, others...well, don't. Nicole, for one, keeps a swig of vodka handy, right next to some random wires, which would make sense...if she was a really stressed-out hacker. Nessa and Tanisha carry a change of undergarments and Alice likes to stash baked goods inside her tote, because whose cell phone doesn't love itself some Croissant dandruff? Purse-hoarding is real, y'all.
