Dear Wendy: “Will My Brother’s Obnoxious Fiancée Ruin My Graduation Party?

I'm graduating from college in June. I've had a lot of setbacks and ups and downs that I had to deal with in order to get to where I am now, so I'm planning a party to celebrate my accomplishment. The problem is I do not want my older brother's fiancée to attend. We do…

Dude Holds His Ex’s Facebook Page Hostage

Jessica Zamora-Anderson and Paul Franco of Queens, New York, hardly had the ideal relationship. They met on Facebook in 2008 and were reasonably happy, until a year later when a screaming match ended with Paul chucking a cell phone at his girlfriend's head. Soon after, Paul let Jessica know that he'd taken video footage of…

I Was The Accidental Mistress

After I broke up with my sweet college boyfriend, a decent man who never ran me through the ringer, who responded to my bouts of recklessness and immaturity with compassion and sympathy, a guy who never did me wrong, I desired nothing more than desire itself. After years of slow and steady, I yearned for…

Quotable: OctoMom May Someday Want To Be QuindecimMom

"Someday far, far, far, far in the future when they're older, if god willing, I meet somebody. I don't want anymore kids alone, but I won't 100 percent say that I'm not going to far in the future get married and want a baby."—OctoMom Nadya Suleman when asked during a chaotic interview on "The…

What Do The Words “No Pants,” “Lady Gaga,” And “Chandeliers” Have In Common?

To be fair, put the words "Lady Gaga" next to any mix of vocabulary, and anything's possible. If you're talking "no pants" and "chandeliers," you might as well be talking about her latest music video. Or sexual preferences. But the real connection has to do with the coming season's fashion buzzwords. According to New…

SeaWorld Sadness: An Orca Whale Kills Its Trainer

The more I read about SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was killed yesterday, the sadder I get. In an article about Brancheau written years ago, she told the Orlando Sentinel about going to SeaWorld for the first time when she was 9. "I remember walking down the aisle [of Shamu Stadium] and telling my mom,…

Frisky Rant: Sex Addicted Isn’t Just The Way Guys Are

There’s always that one guy. You know, the one who undoes our progress as human beings. The man who claims we are powerless victims to our biological urges. Enter T. Byram Karasu, a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, who in a piece on The Daily Beast argues that Tiger Woods’ sexcapades were a…

Did Kate Spade Steal The Book-As-Purse Idea?

There's a big brouhaha going on right now over handbags that resemble books. Kate Spade will sell bags (above left) that look like well-worn novels starting this fall, and according to Salon's Broadsheet, the preppy apparel company has been called "a big fat copycat" by handbag designer Olympia Le-Tan, whose similar…

“Bachelor” Contestant Rozlyn (Allegedly) Has A Sex Tape

Well, that certainly didn't take long. Rozlyn Papa, the bachelorette who was kicked off "The Bachelor" earlier this season for inappropriate behavior with a producer, allegedly has a sex tape that's being shopped around to various porn companies. According to a rep for Papa (seriously? She has a rep?), Rozlyn has "no knowledge…

Girl Talk: How I Became An Internet Oversharer

Lately I've noticed a number of commenters remarking or complimenting me on my willingness to "put myself out there" on The Frisky, sometimes scolding others whose remarks or jokes might end up hurting my feelings. The thing is, there's very little feedback on what I write -- i.e., about my personal experience or my decisio…

A Calendar To Round Out Your Year

More often than not, calendars are downright frightening. See: pictures of babies dressed up as flowers, the near-naked Jersey Shore fire department, nude middle-aged women à la "Calendar Girls." If turning the page to see what greets you for March elicits a cry of terror, then perhaps you're in the market for something a bit…

Brooke Shields’ French Vogue “Lady Cops” Editorial Is Tacky

In what may very well be the saddest display of refusing to let the past go that we've ever seen, Brooke Shields posed for this ridiculous French Vogue "Lady Cops" editorial. Based on a made-up TV show, costarring Elaine Irwin and shot by Bruce Weber, the spread is an attempt at campiness that definitely fall…

New “Alice In Wonderland” Clips Leave Us … Confused

T-minus one week until Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" opens in theaters, and several new clips are making their rounds on the interwebs today. And I gotta admit that while I was once psyched about the 3D IMax trip-fest, the clips just seem a little ... snoozy. Above, see the White Queen (otherwise know…

Selma Blair Does The Bowl-Bob

Selma Blair was spotted at The Gap yesterday with a brand-new haircut. Look quickly and it appears to be a very Anna Wintour-esque bob. But if you look a bit closer, her hair is reminiscent of Agyness Deyn's bowl cut, too. I'm nicknaming it the "bowl-bob." Check out the fringe…

Quotable: Senator Scott Brown Likes His Pink Leather Shorts

"'Gail comes out and she’s like, "Those are pink shorts." I said: "Yeah, you like them? They’re great. Comfortable. Feel this leather." With this last phrase, he slowly stroked the side of one of his thighs, apparently miming the gesture he made in front of her."--Massachusetts senator Scott Brown defends the fact that he wore…

Does Every Guy Want To Date A Model?

Every year, countless articles decry men for our unwavering desire to date supermodels. Real women don't look like that, we're told, and there's nothing wrong with a few extra pounds. The thing is, most men agree with that statement. If we didn't, the human race might be in a bit of trouble. Still, magazines, TV…
