Should Weight Never Be Discussed Just Because It’s Triggering For Those With Eating Disorders?

Julia Allison, former dating columnist, occasional “It’s On With Alexa Chung” guest, and subject of snark from yours truly, is issuing herself a fitness challenge! The challenge: to lose 10 pounds in 30 days. She’ll be documenting the whole process on her “lifecast” so that the accountability she feels towards her readers will guilt-trip her into accomplishing her goal. To kick-start it, she did the Presidential Fitness Assessment at Equinox and posted her measurements on her blog. ["I’m 5’4” 1/2, 137 pounds, with a bust of 33, waist of 26 1/2 and hips of 36, butt of 40, and a BMI of 23.8 percent."] She got the following email from a reader as a result:

“I don’t think it’s smart to post your measurements (including weight) on your lifecast. It could be insensitive to those struggling with these issues. Although you may not mean it, it can come across as though those numbers are important markers of being ‘pretty’, ‘successful’ etc. — you catch my drift! I see that you have struggled with bulimia; so, there could be many others too. Well, there are. Just a thought!”

Glamour’s Plus-Sized Model Visits “Today”

Glamour has received loads of praise after publishing a photo in their September issue of plus-sized model, Lizzie Miller. Lizzie, along with Glamour‘s editor-in-chief, Cindi Lieve, was on “Today” this morning to talk about the positive response to the photo — which shows Miller naked, with un-airbrushed stomach pudge — and Lieve vowed that her magazine would be including more models like Miller in the future. Sounds amazing, but we’ll believe it when we see it! Keep reading »

Should Cage Leggings Be Sent To Fashion Prison?

Every time I think we’ve seen it all in terms of edgy leggings and hosiery, some designer proves me wrong. Behold caged leggings! Michelle at Kingdom of Style tested out James Lillis’ design and looks pretty rad, but something tells me walking in these bad boys is kind of awkward, especially if your thighs (normally) touch a bit. Michelle also turned me on to a new blog to peruse on those days when I have nutty legwear on the brain — Too Many Tights! Bookmark it. [Kingdom Of Style] Keep reading »

Heidi Montag Performs At The Miss Universe Pageant

Heidi Montag “sang” (i.e. lipsynced) and “danced” (i.e. gyrated) on last night’s Miss Universe Pageant and definitely pulled a few tricks from the Britney Spears playbook. In other words, she worse a nudish jumpsuit and did some weird genie-like moves, but was nowhere near as awesome as Britney in her heyday. Please, let this be the last we see of her! Keep reading »

Alleged Killer Ryan Jenkins Found Dead

Ryan Jenkins, the man wanted in the death of Jasmine Fiore — and a contestant on VH1′s “Megan Wants A Millionaire,” which has since been canceled — was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room. It’s believed he took his own life. Jenkins has been on the run from authorities, who wanted to speak to the man about the death of his wife. Fiore’s body was found in a dumpster, stuffed in a suitcase, without her teeth and fingers; her body was identified via her breast implants. All signs — including Jenkins’ evasion of police — pointed to her husband as the killer. [Vancouver Sun] Keep reading »

Mila Kunis And Natalie Portman Do It, Plus Other Actresses Who’ve Switched Teams

Even though the movie is in pre-production, “Black Swan” is getting press because Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis have sex, and according to a script review site, it isn’t for the faint of heart, it’s “We’re talking ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.” Written and directed by Darren Aronofsky (who directed “The Wrestler”), the movie deals with the melodramatic lives of New York ballet dancers working on Swan Lake. [Celebuzz] Why do ballet dancers in movies only do productions of Swan Lake? But more importantly, why are there so few lesbian scenes in movies? We look back at the women who paved the way for this upcoming cinematic achievement.

Gallery: Mischa, Hilary, & Eva Amurri Heart (Charlotte) Ronson

On Thursday night The Frisky got invited to attend a summer BBQ-themed party for the fall collection of Charlotte Ronson’s “I Heart Ronson” line for JCPenney at The Lighthouse in NYC. I got a chance to chat with the designer — along with guests like Eva Amurri, Hilary Duff, Sophia Bush, and Shwayze — about what inspired her. “Lots of prints, plaids, florals,” she said, “Those clothes you can mix and match, that just look better as they get more worn.” The look is kind of ’60s countryside, with a little rock ‘n’ roll edge. Very cute and very affordable.

Keep clicking to see who else walked the red carpet, what interesting little tidbits they shared with The Frisky, and to see me model the free I Heart Ronson dress I scored…

What You’ve Been Waiting For: A “30 Rock” Porn Spoof

And, no, it’s not called “30 C**k.” Porn company New Sensations — which produced porn spoofs based on hit shows like “The Office” and “Scrubs” — has released the XXX flick, featuring characters “Limon,” (based on Tina Fey’s “Liz Lemon”) “Trey Jordan,” (“Tracy Jordan”) and “Jake,” (“Jack Donaghy”). I’m pretty sure “Limon” is played by the same actress that portrayed “Sara Paylin” in “Nailin’ Paylin.” NYMag.com rightly points out that the skin flick does its parody well. “Someone out there in porn-making land has actually done their ’30 Rock’ homework — there’s even a TGS movie-parody-within-a-show-within-a-show-within-a-parody-porn scene. Color us impressed.” Check out the trailer here. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Inglourious Basterds,” “Post Grad,” “Shorts,” “World’s Greatest Dad”

Do you really need an excuse to go to the movie theater?

This week you can get some revenge on Nazis with “Inglourious Basterds,” get anxious about the employment rate with “Post Grad,” make a wish with “Shorts,” or take solace in the fact that your life isn’t as depressing as Robin Williams‘ in “World’s Greatest Dad.” Keep reading »
