“The Runaways” Is Going To Be The Hotness

I really love a biopic, even when I’m not aware of the subject’s backstory beforehand. So I’ve marked my calendar, making March 19 the day of “The Runaways.” Not only does this film tell the story of the short-lived band that made Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) rock stars,…

Maryland To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages Performed in Other States

I have a friend who came to the United States from Israel to sing opera. He’s kind and funny, and when he sings, the air fills and tingles with his music. But too often, I’ve seen him looking sadly distant. He married his boyfriend last year in Connecticut, but then had to put him o…

Quotable: Joan Rivers Tells Victoria Beckham To Eff Off With Her Entitlement

Victoria Beckham is so nasty. Why doesn’t she just go home?! Her dresses are beautiful, but I don’t care what she does. She’s mean to all the people around her. She’s too short to be a diva. We all use the same hairdressers, make-up artists, limo-drivers, and greeters at the airports in L.A. and nobody…

How To Get More Women In Front Of The Camera? Get More Behind It.

We’re hoping that women like Kathryn Bigelow, the woman behind “The Hurt Locker” who could win the Oscar for Best Director this year, will begin to give voice to the silent minority in Hollywood: women. A recent study done at the University of Southern California turned up some disheartening stats about women in film. Of…

When Eating Octopus Goes Wrong

You know, I take my work here at The Frisky very, very seriously. I like to think of myself as “channeling” what you, our dear readers, want. Like, I am just a vessel for delivering you what you need. So, today, I sat down, and I closed my eyes, and I asked The…

Jennifer Lopez Wins Most Awkwardly Timed “SNL” Gig Award

Am I alone in thinking it’s hilarious that the same week she’s dropped by her label, Jennifer Lopez is the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live”? No? Thought so.

Quotable: Chris Brown Believes Tiger Woods Deserves A Second Chance

“Whatever [Woods'] personal life is, and this goes for me and him, his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on anybody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them. I know my fans gave me a second chance. I think people alway…

Girl On Girl: Lesbian Bed Death Is A Big, Fat Myth

A few weeks ago, a man attempted to insult me by telling me I suffer from “lesbian bed death.” Rather than get upset, I just laughed. Hard. The dude about whom we are speaking doesn’t know me. He has no idea if I have a girlfriend or how often I get down. I thought about…

The Soho Grand Hotel Offers Guests Companionship

True, the hospitality industry is a competitive one, but what could upscale hotels possibly think of next to one-up each other’s luxury amenities? The Wynn in Vegas just opened up a “booty parlor,” the Miami Ritz-Carlton offers guests a “tanning butler,” and Chicago’s Sax Hotel will make you feel like a celeb, by customizing your…

L’Oréal Markets “Macho” Anti-Wrinkle Product To French Guys

In France, there’s a metrosexual common denominator—all males seem to come out of the womb in bespoke suits and are born with an encyclopedic knowledge of style and culture. But the real men use this super macho anti-wrinkle pen product from L’Oréal. That’s right, dudes get wrinkles, too, and the way they combat them i…

It’s official. Angelina Jolie has signed on to play medical examiner Kay Scarpetta in an as-of-yet untitled movie based on Patricia Cornwell’s 17-book series.
