Today’s Lady News: Susan G. Komen Cancer Charity Halts Grants To Planned Parenthood

Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the charity synonymous with breast cancer research, has halted grants to Planned Parenthood — seemingly caving to pressure from anti-abortion activists who have the nationwide clinics under investigation. Susan G. Komen grants mainly were used for breast exams (and other breast health services) for women who otherwise could…

January 31: What Are We Wearing Today?

How is it the last day of January already?! It feels like just yesterday I was dancing like an idiot at the Phish concert on New Year’s Eve…

A bit of good news, however. I was just informed that apparently the days are getting longer by two minutes per day and accelerating. While time may…

“The Bachelor”‘s Courtney Robertson In A Caesars Palace Commercial

Before she made a name for herself as the token crazy bitch on this season of “The Bachelor,” Courtney Robertson (or “Cuntney” as Amelia lovingly [Really! — Editor] refers to her), appeared in this “routinely spectacular” Caesars Palace commercial. I may be interpreting the story line incorrectly, but is she supposed to be a working girl?

Faces Of Skate

There’s a lot of glitz and glamour in the world of ice skating. There’s also a lot of wackadoodle facial expressions. These talented skaters were all captured making crazy faces at the ISU European Figure Skating Championships and U.S. Figure Skating Championships this past weekend. And yes, I know I’m going to hell for laughing…

5 Paychecks To A Better Makeup Bag

Real talk: when it comes to shopping, a single, professional lady’s eyes are usually bigger than her stomach. I am not just referring to coveting $250 sandals that you really don’t need. I’m taking about the way we try to tackle huge style or beauty problems all at once. We watch too many chick flick…

Check Out The Most Epic A Capella Disney Medley Ever

It took 17-year-old singer Heather Traska 86 days, over 30 costume changes, and a month of editing to put together this video, which is surely the most epic a capella Disney medley ever. “Mulan,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King,” “Pocahontas,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” — they’re all here. I was giggling with glee…

A Kitty Hit By Cupid’s Arrow

Cupid the cat was found wandering the streets of Houston, Texas, with an arrow shot straight through him. The poor little ginger buddy survived several days on the streets with the arrow embedded in his body, before rescue workers were able to remove it.

Style Resolution: Get Dressed Every Day

OK, I know this sounds less like a grown-up style resolution and more like something a mom would put on her kindergartner’s daily chore chart, so let me explain. 

I write for The Frisky from my apartment in Portland, and working from home gives a person certain sartorial freedoms that you don’t get…

Damn, Girl, That Plastic Looks Good On You

This is French R&B singer Shy’m. And she looks friggin’ awesome in this strange couture creation she wore to the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes. As the cheerleading squad at my high school used to say, “Don’t hate, appreciate.”…

How To Bathe Like A Rock Star

Despite what you might assume about a glamourous ladyblog editor such as myself, I do not live a particularly rock star lifestyle. Sure, Richard Simmons, a fellow “Today Show” guest (!!!) noted that I was pretty and must be intimidating to men and, yes, sometimes I get sent free makeup to try, but my lifestyle…

Woman Weds Warehouse To Save Its Life

Seattle woman, Babylonia Aivaz, fell in love with a warehouse she met during an Occupy Seattle event and decided to marry it. But not in that romantic kind of way. Babylonia exchanged “I dos” with the 107-year-old building this Sunday (well, kind of) to save its life. “I’m doing this to show the building how…

Fleshlight Will Make Masturbating To Your iPad Even Easier/Messier

As mostly heterosexual ladies, we’ve had to fear/admire Fleshlight from afar. The silicone vagina slightly horrified us, especially the ones modeled after adult film actresses. Then again, if we’re here wishing upon a star that vibrators rain from the sky, why shouldn’t men enjoy sex toys, too? It’s only fair. Now the tech blogs Geekosystem…

Vanity Fair’s Annual Young Hollywood Issue Tucks Away Women Of Color, Renders Everyone Else Unrecognizable

Vanity Fair releases its Hollywood issue annually, but this year’s cover is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be shot by famed photog Mario Testino. His technique translates beautifully to the cover, though it’s not immediately apparent that it’s his work. The 11 young actresses featured are dressed impeccably, draped…

Kristen Bell Loves Herself Some Sloth

As anybody who reads The Frisky knows, there’s been a 500 percent increase in sloth coverage since I’ve been hired. That’s because I’m obsessed with them, and hope that one day I will be able to hang out with them, cuddle them and love them. Kristen Bell is obsessed with them, too. And her boyfriend…

“Drive” On (DVD)

Like fast cars, romance, and a killer soundtrack? Like those things even more when they’re accompanied by a hot, man-of-few-words bad boy in a satin jacket with a scorpion emblazoned on it?

Um, 2007 called — it wants to tell you who “Gossip Girl” is!
