Cute Alert: Inside Out Teddy Bears!

Adorable! Boing Boing points us to photographer Kent Rogowski’s weirdly cute portraits of teddy bears that have been turned inside out. According to Rogowski, “These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all.” In other words, they’re just like us, “revealing their inner…

10 Reasons We’ll Seriously Miss “Ugly Betty”

Just when I thought the week couldn’t get any worse, ABC decided to cancel “Ugly Betty.” I had a bad feeling that might happen when the show was suddenly on at 10 p.m. on Friday nights, when no one cool (besides me) is home to watch it. The show will end in April due to…

Johnny Weir Takes ESPN Reporter For A Mani/Pedi

ESPN’s Jim Caple gets introduced to a whole new world when he meets up with Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir for a manicure, pedicure, some paraffin wax and a little sex talk. (Johnny: “I don’t have sex. I don’t have time anyway—man, woman, tree.”) And the hat! Close-ups of gnarly man-toes (belonging to Caple)!

What Is Kingston Crying About?

“Zuma used up all the kiddie hair gel!”
“Bob Marley is dead?! What?!”

I don’t know, but s**t that kid is cute.

Cheapskate: La Garçonne Sale

La Garçonne is one of our obsessions, but rarely do we buy anything because we simply can’t afford labels like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Helmut Lang. Fortunately, the folks at La Garçonne have taken pity on us by putting a major crop of items on sale. While we still can’t rationalize spending $1,000-plus o…

How To Break Out Of A Boring Sex Life

When you’ve been in a relationship for a while, the passion can ebb for the simple reason that you both know exactly what’s coming. It could be the best and dirtiest sex anyone has ever had, but it doesn’t matter: it’s the same as it was last time. It doesn’t mean you care any le…

A Sad Year For Ladies In TV

This year, the four major TV networks — ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX — picked up 69 new shows between them, and hardly any of them were created by women. A measly 13 percent go to the fairer sex, making this the “worst year for women in TV in a decade.” Writers rooms are notoriously…

True Confessions: I Married A Nerd

I love my husband. He’s a fantastic gent who makes swoon-worthy stuffed french toast, fixes my bicycle when it breaks down, and plus he loves me and stuff. But, when there’s a new tech update, I shudder. It’s a reflex. If only Steve Jobs could see what he did to me last night at the…

“God Hates Gaga”: The Music Video!

The Westboro Baptist Church has taken their “God Hates Gaga” campaign to the land of music videos with their version of “Poker Face.” Apparently, God also hates decent graphics and any semblance of good production value?

Are Kim Kardashian’s Feet Really That Unusual?

Sometimes Splash News, the celeb photo site where The Frisky gets many of its images, likes to point out “interesting” things they’ve noticed in some of their photos. Take this photo of Kim Kardashian getting a pedicure. Splash has called Kim’s feet “unusual” and has added this helpful, zoomed-in inset to prove their point. Problem…

The John Edwards/Rielle Hunter Sex Tape Appears To Be Totes Legit

“Mad Men” Loses Sal For Good

As any fan of “Mad Men” who followed the third season on AMC knows, the character of Sal, a gay art director for the ad agency played brilliantly by Bryan Batt, was let go towards the end of the season when a spurned gay client outed him. Most of us held out hope the character…

If You Want To Get Kinky For V-Day, It’ll Cost You

Valentine’s Day is coming, bringing with it metric tons of frilly pink crepe paper, dudes making their once-yearly cooking attempts, and a windfall for the Whitman’s chocolate factory. The annual love-fest has become overwhelming enough that Anti V-Day is equally ubiquitous, yet I sometimes find myself lamenting my shacked-up state. The single-people celebrations tend toward…

Ditch Your Running Shoes For Bare Feet?!

Runners who prefer going barefoot are less likely to experience serious injury than their shod peers, according to new Harvard research. Researchers found that barefoot runners land on the balls or middle of their feet first, which causes virtually no impact collision. Runners wearing shoes hold their feet differently, and their heels tend to hit…

Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton Might Be Dunzo In 2012

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she would not serve another four years if President Obama is reelected in 2012, because she hopes to slow her pace and do more writing and teaching. “The whole eight [years] — that would be very challenging,” Clinton said. “It’s a 24/7 job and I think at some…

Move Over Big Brother, Hulu’s Putting A 24/7 Reality Show Online

Starting next year, Hulu will be launching a new show called “If I Can Dream,” from the producers that brought you “American Idol.” “If I Can Dream” will be the first 24/7 television show—just like the “Truman Show” and “EdTV” predicted.

How To Dress For An Unexpectedly Icky Day

When I left the house this morning, it was snowing. Hard. This, after Monday’s New York downpour, had us a tad pissed off, wet and cursing the decision to wear suede shoes. No more of this BS! No more ruined pumps! We’re going to make the junky weather our bitch with entirely appropriate (but still…
