Girl Talk: Assorted Notes On The Dreaded Ex Run-In

I am going to refrain from going into too much detail and say that I, like most women, have one awful ex. I've dated lots of dudes in my years on the scene and there is no other man that compares to him in the badness department.  I've lived with a low-level and persistent fear…

Jennifer Garner Channels Hillary Clinton In “Butter”

I thought "Butter" was just a movie about Jennifer Garner as a competitive butter sculptor. It turns out, the film is a metaphor for the entire 2008 election. Jennifer plays a woman pitted against a young African-American girl in a butter sculpting competition, sure that they'll win the first place prize she…

Dwarf Drama: Hollywood’s Biggest Little People Scandals

Celebrity miscreants like Charlie Sheen get the lion's share of the limelight. No one remembers the scandals of the little people, dammit! And yes, I mean literally, the little people. Dwarfism is well-represented enough in Hollywood that even they have their embarrassing scandals. Let's take a gander at Hollywood's biggest little people scandals!

Welcome To The New(ish) Frisky!

So, as I mentioned on Tuesday morning, The Frisky has undergone a little bit of a new look. Not a full facelift, of course, but a bit of Botox that we believe will make our 3.5-year-old site run faster, easier to use, and more fun to read. For the last few months, our fabulous tech…

Tyra Tries To Make The “Booty Tooch” Her New Thing

Last night's epsiode of "America's Next Top Model" was a rollicking good time. It was fun to watch Kristin Cavallari give the girls tips on striking while the iron is hot on their reality TV fame. And I am so excited that the gals finally did an interesting photo shoot—posing ato…

Cat Scratch Fever

Humans just love anthropomorphizing their animals. I mean, look, I named my cat Colonel Mustard, okay? He has a friggin' military title, so I think I know what I'm talking about. So, sure, yes, I want to see my cat play with this scratch-pad-disguised-as-a-turntable. Sure I do. Imagine The Colonel taking his giant paws to…

LeAnn Rimes Hates The Word “Stepmom”

"Step ... Stepmother, Stepfather, Stepchildren—the word 'step' can take on such a negative connotation to so many in our society. A family is a family. In my eyes, there's no 'step' about it ... It’s not easy being a stepparent, taking on a mother or father role in your new blended family and household. It…

Soapbox: Plus-Size Model Crystal Renn Is Thinner Now — So What?

No matter that in the real world women come in a bevy of shapes and sizes, in the model world, you're either "regular" or "plus-size." And for the past several years, model Crystal Renn has been at the top of the plus-size game. But Renn has been catching flack lately for a rather surprising reason:…

Morning Quickies: Chris Brown Gay Sex Rumors Are Swirling

A former assistant for Martyn leaked DMs from Twitter which allegedly show the R&B singer and Chris Brown chatting about gay sex. The assistant allegedly screengrabbed the DMs from Martyn's account and is circulating them across the gossip blogs. Hmm. Being a closet case might actually explain why Chris is such a d-bag. […

Tiger Cub Gets Annoying Kiss From Mom

"Mommmmm, stopppppppp!" is what this tiger cub's perturbed expression seems to be saying. My expression upon viewing this photo, on the other hand, decidedly says, "Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!" [Buzzfeed]…

11 Celebs Who’ve Had Tattoos Removed

Bebe Buell Says She Was No Groupie

"I consider 'groupie' a sexist term. I think it’s a misused term. I’ve seen Jerry Hall called a groupie in the English press, and this is a girl who gave Mick Jagger four babies, and how many years did she spend with him? When people just decide that every woman in rock and roll i…

Jennifer Aniston’s “Suck It, Brad!” Photoshoot With Justin Theroux

Remember when, shortly after his split from Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt appeared on the cover of W magazine, playing family man in a photoshoot with rumored lover Angelina Jolie? And Jennifer was all, "Homie is missing a sensitivity chip?" Well, many thought Brad's sensitively was lacking when he implied to Parade earlier this month that his life…

14 Celebrity Love, Dating, And Relationship Analogies

Kelly Clarkson is a smartie when it comes to matters of the heart. I mean, she did sing "Since U Been Gone." But now she has more wisdom to pass on to us. "[Dating is] like an 'American Idol' audition," she said in a recent interview. "The worst ones are the most confident…

Evening Quickies: Chris Christie Rocks A Pink Tie

Chris Christie is the governor of New Jersey and this morning he denied once again that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president. (Except he didn't actually say that, which I think means wink-wink-nudge-nudge he's not ready to announce yet.) But anyway, enough about politics — let's talk about that tie. It's pink. Hot…

Today’s Lady News: French Women Say Au Revoir To “Mademoiselle”

Parlez-vous feminism? French feminists are storming the Bastille (not really) over use of the honorific "mademoiselle," which means "miss," because they say it is demeaning to define women by their marital status. I wholeheartedly agree and appreciate the 1970s' feminists who popularized use of the term "Ms." as a general honorific for women. French feminist…
