Entertainment Weekly put together a list of the 20 Coolest Pop Culture Heroes and, of course — because THEY HATE WOMEN — there were only five females on the list — Sydney Bristow (“Alias”), Nancy Drew, Foxy Brown, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Ellen Ripley (“Aliens”). Solid choices, but we can think of so many more! Keep clicking to see who made our list of the 20 Coolest Pop Culture Heroines and add your own in the comments!
On last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of New York City,” Kelly Bensimon attempted to tear Bethenny a new you-know-what for daring to call her “Madonna” at the arthritis charity meeting. Bethenny, as you may recall, was appalled that Kelly wouldn’t put her name on the invitation (Kelly doesn’t lend her name to anything), which just added to her general dislike of the latest housewife.
[Note: Personally, I think the [soon-to-be-former] C(o)untess LuAnn had Kelly added to the show so she would seem less evil in comparison. Totally worked, FYI, as LuAnn seems like Mother Theresa to me now.] Keep reading »
As many of you who have been reading The Frisky for awhile know, I was engaged for much of the site’s lifespan. I was with my fiance for four years when he proposed on New Year’s Eve 2007. I wrote about being engaged for The Frisky in a regular column, “So I’m Engaged.” When he suddenly left me last September, I was, frankly, devastated to the point where I could not get out of bed. I missed a week of work and lost about 10 pounds. I felt absolutely mortified by the existence of those “So I’m Engaged” columns and couldn’t stand the thought of anyone reading them.

One of our favorite blogs from the past year is Postcards From Yo Momma, which features reader submitted notes, emails, letters, and texts from real mothers. And as is the trend these days, the blog has now been turned into a book called, Love, Mom: Poignant, Goofy, Brilliant Messages from Home, edited by Doree Shafir and Jessica Grose. It’s the perfect gift for Mom this Mother’s Day, obviously, but it’s also great for a laugh, especially if you’re lucky enough to have a mom who emails gems like:
“I know you don’t much like Oprah, but she had an interesting segment last night about “gas”, and what can be done about it. Two things I remember are eating more slowly (that lets less air in through your mouth when you are in the process of eating), and cutting down on carbonated beverages while you are eating…. Okay, I’ll stop now.”
They Said: “To paraphrase his own now infamous expletive-laced tantrum: what the f**k was Bale doing when he launched that embarrassing, inhumane tirade on the Terminator Salvation set? Is this guy professional or not?…Bale shouldn’t just be sorry. Next time, he should think for one f**king second.”
In Defense: The last time we checked, having a temper did not make you less sexy. It may make you an a**hole, but everyone knows a**holes are kind of sexy so long as they’re good looking. Until the day Bale directs his temper at a woman, he shall remain one hot piece of a**hole in our book.
You know what’s funny? Picturing Beyonce going down on David Coulier in a movie theater.

“Girls like it when you nickname them something smaller than a bread box. Chickadee. Pat of Butter. Baby Mouse. This makes us feel tiny and adorable. Space Heater and Minivan do not.”
