Shopping Guide: In The Navy

As you might have noticed, my navy blue cardigan from Anthropologie is pretty much a staple for me. Navy is a great alternative to boring black, but is neutral enough that you can pair it with virtually anything. As such, I resolve to add more navy to my wardrobe in 2012 -- and I think…

Oh Girl, Don’t: Ashton Kutcher’s New Ladyfriend Just Shouldn’t

Uh oh, reports are surfacing that Ashton Kutcher is dating a new lady -- Lorene Scafaria, the screenwriter of "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist." Let's hope that rumor isn't true, because if so, Lorene, girl, you are an idiot. Supposedly, says Page Six, the pair began flirting/dating/planning their romantic liaisons long before he officially split…

Michelle Obama Busts A Move On “iCarly”

Nickelodeon is not usually a channel we'd be caught watching unless there's a "Ren & Stimpy" marathon on. We may just have to TiVo an episode of the kiddie program "iCarly" in the new year, though: a teaser for the 2012 season is out and First Lady Michelle Obama stops by the iCarly webshow to…

It’s A Nice Day For A White Castle Wedding

Weddings in stuffy ballrooms with fancy buffets are overrated. Clinton and Rosemary knew that their wedding should be all about their love for each other … and for mini-sliders. That's why they exchanged vows at their local White Castle in Louisville. Incidentally, Rosemary's parents had their first date there, so it's kind of like a…

Duggar Family Sends Video Message (With Anti-Abortion Undertones) To Miscarried Baby Jubilee

I don't think it's anyone's business to tell parents who have suffered a miscarriage how to behave. People express grief in all sorts of ways, even ways you might consider distasteful. That said, a video message to miscarried baby Jubilee Shalom Duggar strikes me as pro-life messaging first and foremost. "So often in society, babie…

Girl Talk: I Got Dumped By Two Shrinks

The first psychiatrist (“shrink”) I ever saw helped me through a rough time by prescribing me an anti-depressant. I figured I’d be on it short term until I was in a better place. That shrink took my health insurance. I didn’t realize how lucky I was.  Little did I know that once I relocated and…

Egyptian Court Stops “Virginity Tests” On Female Protesters In Prison

Sexual assault and the threat of sexual assault are used as a way to control women. Nowhere is that more present, lately, than in Egypt where female protesters have been forced to undergo "virginity tests" administered by soldiers when they are arrested and imprisoned. Yesterday, a Cairo court sided with protester Samira Ibrahim, age 25,…

Mind Of Man: My New Year’s Resolution

My New Years resolution is to be less stupid. I don’t usually make New Years resolutions, or as I call them, Last Year’s regrets. Usually, I just think they're for suckers. The only people who benefit from New Year’s resolutions are the therapists who profit from disappointment maintenance. But this year is going to be…

More Unbearable Cuteness: Siku The Polar Bear At Five Weeks Old

If I had my way, I might change the name of The Frisky over to The Siku, so that we could cover polar bear baby Siku all the time. It would just be pictures and videos of his roly-poly belly, his tiny tongue and his sleeping little polar bear form all the time. But sadly,…
