The fate of ObamaCare has been decided—and it’s very, very good news for President Obama and tens of millions of uninsured Americans. The Supreme Court today upheld the Affordable Care Act with one Medicaid-related exception.

14 Super Awkward Celebrity Kisses

A good kiss makes you feel all melty and tingly. However, a bad one? Well, let’s just say that kisses are not like pizza—the meh ones are pretty awkward. Adding a camera in the bad kissing equation can bring about disastrous results. Think: Tipper and Al Gore at the Democratic National Convention in 2000. Or:…

The Final Frontier In Bath Accessories

Those who know me best — or those who read The Frisky with any regularity — know that I love bath time. I am always looking to take my bubble-filled soaks up a notch, which is why I gasped with excitement when I came across this Spa Bath Planetarium gizmo. It’s like these geniuses knew…

How To Romance Your Technology Into Submission

I am writing this post at the request of my co-workers. This morning when I came into the office, my co-workers were talking about how our video server was being obstinate. My reply was, “You must romance it into submission.” This was met with confused looks. So, I was obliged to present my Theory Of…

Style Stealer: Jessica Alba’s Peachy Keen Look

Jessica Alba’s got a lotta crap with her in this pap pic from her earlier this week. Good thing she’s got a comfy-but-chic outfit on. We’re really digging the peach-on-peach look, so that’s why we’ve decided to steal this style.

Terry Richardson Posts, Then Pulls, Provocative Lindsay Lohan Gun Pics

Creepy photog Terry Richardson posted, then pulled, provocative photos of Lindsay Lohan on his site yesterday, including this one where she holds a handgun to her head. Or at least it looks like a handgun — maybe it’s a prop? Either way, LiLo also posed for Uncle Terry recently with her butt hanging out. Someone…

Victory For Baltimore “Crisis Pregnancy Centers”

“Crisis pregnancy centers” in Baltimore are having their First Amendment rights violated by being required to post notices that state they do not offer abortion referrals or birth control, an appeals court has ruled. “CPCs” are primarily run by anti-abortion activists, located near abortion clinics, and use trickery to dissuade women from terminating…

June 27: What Are We Wearing Today?

As I previously mentioned, I’m in San Jose, CA, for the rest of the week attending the gymnastics Olympic trials as a guest of P&G. I’m interviewing Shawn Johnson in a few hours, no big deal. But back at the office……

When Bethenny Frankel Hung Out With Screech

What fresh hell is this? It seems that before she was a multi-tasking, Skinny Girl Margarita-mix-making, talk show-having, reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel worked as a PA on the set of “Saved By The Bell.” That’s where she met acting luminary and Professionally Creepy Dude Dustin Diamond. This photo is obviously ground zero for cultural…

Wedding Dress Porn: 15 Amazing & Absurdly Expensive Wedding Gowns

It’s wedding season, and whatever. While everyone else is off pledging eternal devotion, or crying whilst watching others do so, I embrace the opportunity to (pointlessly) browse the prettiest, most ornate wedding dresses money can buy, waxing quixotic for the day a Pinault puts a ring on my finger — or even just knocks me…

10 Badass LGBTQ Characters From Television

We’d like this list to serve not only as a celebration of LGBTQ characters on television, but also as a reminder that this is not the end all be all of queer representation: there is so much work to be done, and maybe one day we’ll be able to publish a power grid of queer…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Gisele Bundchen On The Cover Of Vogue Brazil

High fashion can be difficult to wrap one’s head around at times, but I feel like I understand it pretty well for someone who, you know, doesn’t actually wear it (I know, shocker) … and then there’s this shit. On the cover of Vogue! Ridiculous. Is it possible that I’m being unfair? Is this… cool?

Erica Jong Bops Arianna Huffington For Not Paying HuffPost Bloggers

Iconic Fear Of Flying author Erica Jong has publicly criticized Arianna Huffington — who uses the unpaid labor of thousands of bloggers on The Huffington Post — and accused her of “hurting writing as a profession.” A feisty Ms. Jong spoke to The Slant, a journalism blog, about Huffington’s effect on the media biz and,…

The “The Hills” As Art

I can’t quite tell you why, but I was pretty darn addicted to MTV’s “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” and, to a lesser degree, “The City.” Nothing ever actually happened on these shows and the conversations and “characters” were basically the opposite of fascinating, but maybe it was their incredible blandness that made it hard to turn away. I think I…

Why Tom Cruise Puts Bird Poop On His Face

The secret to Tom Cruise’s boyish good looks? Bird poop. The actor indulges in a expensive facials in which nightingale excrement is mixed with rice bran and water, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. “Tom doesn’t go in for Botox or surgery but he does pay close attention to all the new and popular natural treatments,” says a Now magazine…

Nora Ephron’s Nora Ephroniest Movie Moments: From “Heartburn” To “You’ve Got Mail”

It would be unfair to list off Nora Ephron’s greatest movie moments as merely a collection of scenes from “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless In Seattle”. Two important films, no doubt, but Ephron’s magic is sprinkled across all her work: from the Instant Messages written in “You’ve Got Mail” to Jack Nicholson and Meryl…
