Sunday night the Golden Globes go live, offering us tons of red carpet fashions, awards and celebrity hijinks. And guess what? We’re gonna be there! Okay, not there there, but chronicling the whole damn thing from home. Get the whole scoop by following us on Twitter — Julie is @havethehabit and Amelia is @xoamelia. Starting on Sunday, January 13 at 6 p.m., we’ll be there with all the gossip, analysis and hilarity. Obviously you need someone to talk to about what Anne Hathaway’s wearing, right? (And if you haven’t already, follow @thefrisky for more fun!) Oh, and don’t forget to bring along The Frisky’s Golden Globes Drinking Game so you can get plastered with us!
Okay, so we’re a little late on recapping the new Bravo show “Gallery Girls.” We’ve Julia Allison-ed our responsibilities. But better later than never, because “Gallery Girls” is sure to be our — and your — new guilty pleasure. In typical Bravo style, the show follows a gaggle of gals, in varying degrees of reprehensibility, as they navigate the social stratosphere of whatever field they’re half-assedly pursuing. In this case, the field is art — making, buying, selling, and displaying — and the stratosphere is New York. Which means that “Gallery Girls” is so much more pretentious than any Bravo show maybe ever. Keep reading »
We’re obsessed with the Olympics, and if you hadn’t guessed, we’ve been spending all of our free time watching the swimmers, gymnasts and volleyball players kick ass in the water, on the uneven bars, and in the sand.
All this Olympic fever has made us realize that some of our favorite athletes look an awful lot like other famous faces. Check out our gallery of some of our fave Olympians and their celebrity dopplegangers.

This past weekend, Amelia and I, plus 15 of our friends, went tubing down the Delaware River. Tubing is about my favorite thing in the world. I consider it the best “sport” for lazy people because you can be outside and on the water, but you don’t actually have to do much. And as Amelia and I found out, you can learn a lot from tubing, the river, and hanging with friends in your skivvies.

The “toxic bachelor.” It was a term we’d never really heard of until a 33-year-old male friend, fresh off a breakup, mentioned it. “I want to settle down,” he said. “I want to start a family. Plus, I’m getting to that age where if I don’t do it soon, I’m in danger of becoming a ‘toxic bachelor.’” A toxic bachelor, he explained, is when it’s no longer cute to be single, and seems sad and desperate instead. For this particular friend, his “toxic bachelor” age was 35, and we wanted to know if other men felt any kind of desperate pull to settle down. So we asked them. Over IM.

What is it with dudes and time? By that we mean, why do they—and of course we are generalizing because that is what we get paid to do—either refuse to be committal when it comes to making a date or are super flaky about the plans/statements they do make? The Non-Committal Type says things like, “Let’s hang out soon” or “I’ll call you sometime.”
Meanwhile, The Flaky Type is super specific, but has zero follow through. “I’ll call you Monday to make plans for a date on Thursday” results in no call Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, so you make alternate plans for Thursday night, but guess what? He’s all up in your grill that morning, saying, “Psyched to hang out tonight!
What should we do?” We are in a constant state of trying to decide which type we hate more. But more important, why do guys generally fall into one of these two buckets? Why is the “Guy Who Makes Specific Plans And Sticks To Them” such a f**king dating unicorn? We went to the guys on our IM to find out.
Guys — they’re just like us! In this episode of “Thoughts From Guys On Our IM,” the boys who make up our chat list confess what makes them nervous before and during a date. Yes, dudes get nervous. Shocking, I know. Read onward! Keep reading »
In a piece for The Good Men Project, Hugo Schwyzer writes about the many men he’s talked with who lie to their girlfriends/wives about the amount of porn they watch. One man told him that he downplays how much X-rated material he consumes because “women go ballistic when you tell them the truth.” Really? Do women actually go ballistic? Are dudes really lying about how much porn they watch? We decided to ask a few of the guys on our IM — who are ALWAYS honest with us — about this very subject. Find out what they had to say after the jump! And please, male Frisky readers, tell us whether you have lied about how much porn you watch and why. And ladies, would you actually go “ballistic” about your dude’s porn usage? Keep reading »
