My personal political beliefs tend to be on the very liberal end of the spectrum, so perhaps I am not the best judge of Herman Cain’s popularity as the favorite candidate for the Republican nomination for President. But political differences aside, the Georgia native and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza seems genuinely, legitimately, and proudly uninformed about a host of issues. One thing he is well-versed in, however? Numerology. Yes, numerology, i.e. the study of the “mystical” power of numbers. On last night’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” following a segment about how former President Ronald Reagan organized his schedule based on the advice of Nancy Reagan’s astrologist (to the chagrin of his Chief of Staff), Maddow revealed that Cain believes the number 45 “is magic.” Say what?

If sexuality is fluid, then my tide is swelling for Salma Hayek. Seriously, I could just listen to her speak for hours, my head nestled in her pillow-y bosom. The actress was on “Late Night With David Letterman” last night and really it’s kind of irrelevant what she talked about — hurting her ankle? her earrings? her, blech, husband? — because I was hypnotized simply by the cadence of her voice. She is dreamy.
Sigh. In recent days, some of you have expressed a lack of understanding, an annoyance even, with my obsession with Courtney Stodden, super sexy sensual teen bride. While I think there are many legitimate reasons to watch Court’s every move — her Twitter account alone is filled with important grammar lessons! — I believe this Anderson Cooper segment alone is all the proof I need that Courtney Stodden is a hot topic worthy of coverage on The Frisky.

Well, this is one way to turn a career around… Lindsay Lohan, who hasn’t had a starring role in a movie since 2007, has agreed to strip down for Playboy in exchange for a reported just under $1 million. Apparently, the deal has been in the works for months, with Lindz eventually agreeing to show off her ginger bush once Hugh Hefner and Co. got close to her asking price. (She apparently scoffed at their initial offer of $750K — as if!). Keep reading »
Does the skin around your eyes sag and cucumber slices and cold spoons just aren’t doing the trick? Don’t worry, wrinkle face, there’s a crazy, bizarre (and likely bulls**t) gadget for that! The Eye Slack Haruka is basically a vibrator for your eyes which, using its highly technologically advanced buzzing and heating powers, vows to take “years off you while lessening those tell-tell weary signs of age.” The downside is it makes you look like a jackass, but who cares? Now, I’m no scientist (although I did get extra credit in high school chemistry because my lap reports were so artistic), but it seems to me that the vibration would actually further loosen skin. Plus, I thought you needed cold temperatures to tighten skin, not heat. I remain unconvinced that this product will do anything about my puffy, sagging undereyes, but at $132 I hope it would at least give me an orgasm. [Japan Trend Shop via Gizmodo]
