Q&A: Kaily Smith, Star & Creator Of “MERRIme.com”

By now you’ve seen eight episodes of the web comedy series “MERRIme.com,” — winner for Best Comedy at the ITVFest — and we hope you’re loving it as much as we are. “MERRIme.com”‘s protagonist is Merri Weisman, a twentysomething trust-fund baby who’s just been dumped by her fiancé. When her father orders her to find a job, pronto, Merri realizes that the key to her survival is not a career, but a man — via the crazy world of online dating. “MERRIme.com” was written by Kaily Smith (along with David Weidoff), a 26-year-old actress originally from Denver, Colorado. We chatted with Kaily about how she was able to put together an entire web series with a lot of hard work and a little help from her friends. Check out The Frisky’s exclusive interview, after the jump… Keep reading »

The Percentages Of Women Who Think It’s OK For Their Husbands To Hit Them

The graph, released by UNICEF and based on data collected between 2001 and 2007, displays the percentages of women, by country, who believe it is OK for their husbands to hit them. The numbers are all horrifying, ranging from 6.9 percent in Serbia to a heartbreaking 90 percent in Jordan. More info here. [via Feministing] Keep reading »

Model Finds The Frenemy Blogger Who Called Her A Skank

Earlier this week we told you about Liskula Cohen, the model who was pissed off because an anonymous blogger was calling her mean names on the internet. A judge ruled that Cohen had the right to know the identity of the blogger behind “Skanks In NYC,” so she could sue them for defamation, and ordered Google to fork over the email address that the blogger used to start the site. At the time, Cohen said she hoped the person wouldn’t end up being someone she knows and considers a friend. Well, after doing some internet sleuthing — using Google, I assume? — Cohen discovered that her nemesis was, in fact, a frenemy! The woman behind “Skanks in NYC” is a “social acquaintance” — her name hasn’t been revealed — who Cohen describes as “an irrelevant person” whom she’d bump into at events and restaurants. So what did Cohen do with this new information? The answer may surprise you. Keep reading »

Hollister: Hell On Earth

Before I left for my trip to Costa Rica — more on that next week — I stopped by the newly opened Hollister store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood in order to buy an extra bikini. I had been to Hollister in other cities before, but my subconscious must have blocked the bad memories, because I truly was unprepared for the mental breakdown that shopping in that store causes.

Hollister is a division of Abercrombie & Fitch, and The New York Times’ describes it as “a beachy and laid-back SoCal lifestyle brand.” It is also hell. Keep reading »

A “Dirty Dancing” Remake? We Have Suggestions So It Won’t Suck.

<a href="http://video.msn.com/?mkt=en-us&from=sp&fg=MsnEntertainment_idseeitif_top2&vid=304364f2-e037-48b6-9ffe-8f67ad6539b1" target="_new" title="Channing Tatum and Charlyne Yi Cinemash "Dirty Dancing""></a>

It’s the year of the dance movie remakes. First, “Footloose,” and now Lionsgate has announced the epic comeback of “Dirty Dancing.” The original not only turned Patrick Swayze into a star, but pulled in more than $200 million back in 1987 and was the first movie ever to sell a million video copies. Julia Dahl (“Uptown Girls”) will be writing the remake script, but there’s no news on who’ll be cast as Johnny or Baby, or whether they’ll bring back original choreographer Kenny Ortega (who directed the “High School Musical” series). [The Guardian]

“Dirty Dancing” was my fave when I was a tween, but after the disaster that was “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights,” I hope they don’t screw this up! I’ve got some suggestions on how to not murder the classic movie memories. Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: John Edwards’ Baby Mama, Kourtney’s Abortion Dilemma, Jon & Kate Plus Annoying

This week’s humpday brought on lots of, well, humping. If it’s not about baby daddys, baby mamas, or new relationships, it’s not in the tabloids this week. And let me remind you—it is the time of the season for loving. If you haven’t had a summer fling (or five), it’s time to claim yours and get in some kissing under the boardwalk. And because you should be busy with your summer lovin’, I’m going to recap this week’s tabloids so you can’t use reading them as an excuse to stay in tonight. Keep reading »

Who Doesn’t Want Their Ass To Wink?

You know what the ass of your jeans is missing? Eyes. Eyes that wink. Retiree and grandfather of seven, William A. Jones, thinks so anyway. That’s why he’s invented Winkers, “the pants (or jeans) whose rear winks as the wearer walks.” Says the redonkulous press release we received today:

Mr. Jones says that the idea came to him when he admired a woman walking towards him and, as men do, checked her out as she passed him. He could have sworn that her elegantly jeans-clad behind sort of winked at him. He then thought that people-watching would be more interesting if their pants were adorned with eyes at the precise fold created by the motion of walking. Mr. Jones experimented with his daughter’s jeans and was quite pleased with the result: when he applied his technique of accurate placement, the pants
did wink!

Eureka! But that’s not all… Keep reading »

Would You Pay $5000 For A Porn Casting Couch?

Here’s further proof you can find everything you need to give your apartment a little pizzaz on Craigslist. A guy who bought a former porn studio is selling off some of its leftover wares, including this casting couch, which was used in films like “Casting Couch Whores #8″ and “Let’s Bust Nuts on these Butt Sluts, Volume 7.” As for the steep price? The seller doesn’t say why he thinks $5000 is a “bargain price,” but I think he’d be open to negotiation, as it sounds like he needs to move the couch fast. “I have to make space for a set for my upcoming production of ‘Gross! Point Blank,’” he wrote in his ad. [Jerks In Your Area via Agency Spy] Keep reading »

Megan Wants A Murderer?

Have you been watching this show “Megan Wants A Millionaire” on VH1? Well, one of the men vying for Megan’s heart is a guy named Ryan Alexander Jenkins — TMZ is reporting that Jenkins is currently a suspect in a murder case. His wife, Jasmine Fiore, a stripper whom he met in Las Vegas after being booted from the show and married two days after, was found dead this past weekend, her body stuffed in a suitcase inside a trash bin. Jenkins allegedly was the one who told the police that Fiore was missing, and then disappeared. Authorities believe he was trying to flee to his native Canada, but his lawyer says he plans to fully cooperate with the investigation. Though reports — and his marriage to Fiore after the show’s conclusion — indicate Jenkins doesn’t win the reality TV show, TMZ says that he is one of the last men standing. His bio has since been removed from the network’s website, but True Crime managed to snag a screengrab. [TMZ] Keep reading »
