Have A Baby Using Brad Pitt’s Sperm (Sorta)!

Well, I can breathe a sigh of relief. If I still don’t have a man when my baby-making clock starts ticking down, I can get the sperm donor of my celeb-worshiping dreams. A sperm bank in Los Angeles — where else? — has launched a new feature where you can search for potential spooge depositors based on what celebrity they resemble. And lucky for us single Frisky gals, there are matches for each of our celebrity crushes! Catherine can get herself a lil’ mini faux Adam Brody, Simcha can have her own bundle of James Franco-esque joy, and there’s a wee little Ryan Gosling pseudo spawn out there just for me! The only problem is that you can’t actually confirm that your sperm donor really looks like the celebrity they say they do, at least not in the initial search results. But I guess you’ll know for sure when you pop out James Galdolfini’s mini-me instead of a baby that resembles Mark Wahlberg. [California Cryobank via DListed] Keep reading »

Jillian Harris Penning A Book About Wieners

Further proof that the book publishing industry will give everyone a book deal but people who actually deserve it … Jillian Harris, the most recent “Bachelorette,” will be writing a dating book based on hot dog toppings. You see, Jillian has this little theory that you can tell a lot about a guy based on what he puts on his hot dog. “It’s just sort of a girls guide to how to dissect a guy and how to simply ask what his hot dog topping is and then you decide whether he’s a keeper or not,” Harris told E! Online. “It’ll be short stories about different guys I’ve dated and what you can expect with a sauerkraut guy or a ketchup guy…just something fun.” Yes. Fun. So. Fun. I’m going to go stab my self with a Oscar Meyer now, thanks. [E! Online] Keep reading »

“Mad Men” Producers Tells January Jones To Gain Weight

Oh, to be in the cast of “Mad Men,” hanging around Don Draper, sporting gorgeous, well-made clothing, and gracing the only program on television where the actresses are encouraged to be voluptuous. January Jones, who plays Betty Draper on the show, had to be asked by the producers to gain weight. “I got told a couple of days ago that I look too skinny, and I was in trouble,” she said. “I’m naturally pretty thin, so I’m trying. I eat whatever is at craft services.” Since women had more meat on their bones in the ’60s, “Mad Men” actresses are asked to not work out. “They want a soft, voluptuous woman which they were [back then] which is beautiful, as it should be,” said Jones. [OK! Magazine]

How refreshing—I’ve been prepping for January’s role all my life! I happen to be an expert on the subject of gaining weight. So here are five ideas for how January can soften up. Keep reading »

15 Things That Are Bad For Men

Another day, another thing that’s “bad for women.” This time it’s emo vampires. Slate’s Grady Hendrix writes:

America’s young women [are] receiving troubling misinformation about the male of the species from “Twilight.” These women are going to be shocked when the sensitive, emotionally available, poetry-writing boys of their dreams expect a bit more from a sleepover than dew-eyed gazes and chaste hugs.

Whatever. Why is there always so much hand-wringing over the pop culture influences that are supposedly awful for women? What about men? I can think of plenty of pop culture trends that could be just as harmless to them. Here are 15 to start… Keep reading »

Japanese Women Turn To Hostess Clubs For Jobs

While the recession has wreaked havoc on relationships here, in Japan it’s given a better name to what used to be a naughty profession: hostessing. Hostess clubs are akin to gentlemen’s clubs, only they’re all about non-sexual attention—beautiful women are paid to tend to men’s drinks, light their cigarettes, and laugh at their lame jokes. Young Japanese women have a crazy hard time getting hired for other jobs, since companies tend to favor men of the same age. Meanwhile, hostessing can be crazy lucrative—top hostesses make between $100K and $300K a year—and thus professional hostesses have gone from being considered tarts to respectable career gals. High school girls ranked hostessing #12 out of the top 40 professions, above nursing or working for the government. And why wouldn’t they want to spend their nights in evening gowns, sipping champagne? It’s a helluva lot better than getting minimum wage to temp, right? [NYTimes] Keep reading »
