Here at The Frisky, we’re unabashed fans of the boob tube, but books are our first love. So, when we heard one of our favorite networks — HBO — was turning the much-hyped book Swamplandia! into a mini-series, we bumped it up to the top of our must-read list. (First of all, any book that has an exclamation point in the title piques our interest.) Karen Russell’s book takes place in the Florida Everglades and is about a teenaged girl desperately trying to keep her family’s gator-wrestling theme park in business after her mom passes. Sounds like a page-turner to us! If you’ve read it, share what you thought in the comments! [$10.17, Amazon]

“These people that say, ‘You could have waited,’ I really don’t understand this way of thinking. Why do parents think that kids need to have those teen years spent going out with different boys, going out in different cars, going out on the beach together alone? There’s a lot of bad stuff that happens in those teen years. They end up being killed in car crashes due to driving with people that have been drinking. Oh, but they’re gonna have their teen years. My daughter is safe. I know where my daughter is.”

Krista Keller, mom to teen bride Courtney Stodden, spoke to The Daily Beast about her daughter’s marriage to 51-year-old Doug Hutchison. Consider me not surprised in the slightest that Courtney’s mom has such a bizarro perspective on not just her daughter’s marriage, but the world. Sounds like in her view, the only viable outcomes for Courtney were death or a marrying a man more than three times her age. College? Imagine how dangerous that must be! Keep reading »

Last night, Conan O’Brien, who has been in New York City all week taping his show, officiated the first same-sex marriage on late night television. In front of a studio audience at the Beacon Theater, he wed the show’s costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein; Bravo’s Andy Cohen walked Cronick down the aisle. “Conan” is usually filmed in California, where gay marriage is not legal, hence the decision to wed Cronick and Gorshein in New York, which legalized same-sex marriage under the Marriage Equality Act in July of this year. I didn’t expect to be teary — this is “Conan” after all — but damn if I didn’t need a tissue. [Team Coco]
