Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

I was spanked as a child, mostly for running away and for disobeying my parents. My brother got spanked for kneeing a classmate in the balls and trying to off me every couple months. I’m pretty well-adjusted, always did well in school despite my efforts to appear “punk rock,” and I certainly never thought ill… READ MORE »

Don’t you hate it when you’re out and about and you have that burning in the pit of your stomach? That’s not acid reflux, peeps, that just means you, OMG, you need to read The Frisky, like, ASAP. Too bad you’re not at home in front of your computer, huh? BUT WAIT. As you may… READ MORE »

I’ve been in therapy for, oh, almost four years, I think. I go once a week, for 45 minutes. I spend a lot of time talking about myself, obviously — issues I have from the past that I need to work on because they’re affecting me in the present (and potentially the future), as well… READ MORE »

Blind Item time! This one via Blind Gossip:This actor may be the last straight man left in Hollywood, but he does have one unusual request that makes us question his past. This one requires one man (him), two partners (in this case both women), and a room temperature traditionally-shaped bottle of Coca-Cola. When he is… READ MORE »

“I feel like I had that [Oscar-worthy role] in ‘El Cantante,’ but I don’t even think the Academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there, everything that could be great … Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny; when the Oscars… READ MORE »

Maybe I’m crazy, but there’s a big difference between a Southern accent and a Swedish accent, right? Like, my ears wouldn’t be confusing the two, would they? Last night I was watching the above interview with “True Blood” hottie Alexander Skarsgard on “Extra” and was seriously perplexed. Wait, isn’t he from Norway orREAD MORE »

Last night, our beloved Snooki (best known for being the most lovable cast member on “Jersey Shore” and for reading The Frisky that one time) appeared on “Jay Leno” and answered 10 questions for his “[email protected]″ segment and was as adorable and ditzy as ever. And she likely made yet another enemy! When Jay… READ MORE »

Over at Broadsheet, Kate Harding is irritated by boyfriend jeans. Not because she thinks they’re unflattering or too expensive, but because of their “heterosexist” name. “Boyfriend” anything, really — shirts, sweaters, jackets — because the idea is that this oversized fashion item is like something straight out of your (male) boo’s closet. She writes:Never mind… READ MORE »

Yesterday, Simcha told us all about how anywhere between 11 and 25 percent of men have faked an orgasm, due to exhaustion, disinterest, performance anxiety, and, uh, boner loss. So, if those numbers are accurate, surely a few of the guys on our IM have faked it once or twice? One guy fessed up, while… READ MORE »

Folgers has a long history of creating mega sexist commercials advertising their brand of instant coffee. You can watch a ton of the vintage ads online, most of which have to do with a woman doing her wifely duty by having her husband’s coffee ready first thing when he wakes up. Whatever, clearly things… READ MORE »
