The Best Cheerleading Scandals Ever

“Catching politicians in a scandal is fun. A Hollywood starlet losing it is better. But there’s nothing quite like a story involving cheerleaders gone wild to capture the American cultural imagination.”

The World’s Weirdest Lip Balms

“I have a chapstick problem. I slather on the stuff approximately once every four minutes and compulsively use my favorites until there is nothing (nothing!) left in the tube. I’m all for cherry, pomegranate, and watermelon, but I’m so over fruity balms.”

Slideshow: From “Models Inc.” To “America’s Next Top Model”

“Here’s a strut down modeling TV lane …”

Girl Talk: Cleo, The Breakup Kitten

“I was devastated. After 48 hours of eating the proverbial Haagen Daaz, I found myself walking the 13 blocks to the ASPCA Adoption Center on New York’s Upper East Side. For the past four years, Chuck’s allergies had barred me from getting a cat. Now I was ready to adopt one—the longer the hair, the better.”

Shopping At The Celebrity Product Mall!

“Why, oh why, can’t celebs be satisfied looking pretty, singing songs or snorting drugs for the paparazzi like they’re supposed to? Must the Lindsays, Jessicas, and Olsens bludgeon us with their wares? Let’s browse the bad racks at Celebrity Mall … “

Going To My Sister’s Wedding Solo

“I am pumped for the reception, which will feature barbecue and cupcakes, and a “Celebrate Good Times”-free wedding dance mix created by yours truly. Heck, I’m even pumped to wear my bridesmaid dress. But there is just one little thing I’m dreading about Sunday: I have no date.”

How Sacha Baron Cohen Keeps From Getting Sued

“Back during “Da Ali G Show” days, things were much simpler. Sacha Baron Cohen would send out interview requests under the guise of being a British production company called United World Productions. When interview subjects arrived, they were greeted by a clean-cut, legitimate-looking director. It wasn’t until the red light on the camera blinked that Sacha Baron Cohen made his appearance.”

Why Being Brunette Is Awesome

“Wait, being brunette makes you a plain Jane? God, I am so over this whole blondes-have-more-fun thing. Here are ten reasons why I’m a happy card-carrying member of the brunette club.”

Let’s Set A Frisky World Record

“Between this office and you guys out there who read The Frisky, there are an awful lot of us. So let’s set a Frisky world record. We could all gather in one place and tear up tabloid magazines at the same time. Or we could group hug while stepping in a circle. I’m open to any and all suggestions, so please post ideas in the comments section. No, really, I’m serious.”

The Sorry State Of Reality Love Shows

“I watch an embarrassing number of shows with love in the title: “Rock of Love,” “The Age of Love,” “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila,” “The Flavor of Love,” “For The Love of Ray J.” Yes, I could go on. The premise of these shows is always the same: 20 or so contestants compete for the heart of one person who, at least in theory, is a serious catch.”
