Smurfette Goes High-Fashion Glam For Harper’s Bazaar

Remember the days when Smurfette seemed to have one dress, one pair of shoes, and one hat? Well this season, she’s smurfing it up in the hottest designer accessories this season. Harper’s Bazaar outfitted the blue fashion maven in accessories from Lanvin (pictured above), Marc Jacobs (photo after the jump), Dolce & Gabbana, and Louis Vuitton. So if you wanna dress like Smurfette, then it’ll cost you $6,835 for the Lanvin look alone. [Harper's Bazaar] Keep reading »

Horse Semen, Anyone?

Holhoi tattea shots are all the rage at the Green Man Pub in New Zealand. For a mere $25 per shot glass, ladies are coming in droves to throw them back like champs. So what is holhoi tattea you ask? Oh, it’s just apple-flavored horse semen which supposedly tastes a little bit “like custard.” (Hold on. I have to vomit real quick. OK I’m back.) If you are chomping at the bit to try a shot of holhoi tattea, you’d better giddy up. The special semen shots are only available until Sunday as part of a Wild Food Challenge. Yeah, that’s wild alright. File this under things that too closely resemble bestiality. [Oddity Central] Keep reading »

Anne Shirley Said It Best

One of our favorite books growing up — oh, heck, it’s still on our bookshelf — is L.M. Montgomery’s Anne Of Green Gables. Anne Shirley, the spunky and idealistic orphan with red braids, is an eternal kindred spirit for every Frisky gal. “Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it” is one of our favorite quotes, aptly summing up Anne’s refreshing outlook on life, despite her early circumstances. This print, featuring Ann-with-an-E’s wise words, will be a helpful reminder to look on the bright side the next time you’re having a rotten day.

Movie Trailer Mash-Up: “Friends With No Strings Attached Benefits”


For months and months now, various blogs, including The Frisky, have pointed out the incredible similarities between the movies “No Strings Attached” (currently out on DVD) and “Friends With Benefits” (coming out July 11). Two attractive, urban twentysomething friends start having casual sex and deal with the hilarious consequences. These two films even fought over the title “Friends with Benefits,” with the Justin Timberlake/Mila Kunis vehicle winning out over Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher‘s. Well, The Blind Film Critic has proved just how much these two films have in common with this mash-up trailer. I’m a sucker for a cheesy rom-com — especially if it’s based on a classic book I am too brain-dead to read (jusssssst kiddddding!) — so even though I saw “No Strings Attached,” I’ll see “Friends With Benefits,” too, especially since Justin and Mila seem to have better chemistry.

Charlize Theron Isn’t Interested In Marriage, Is In Favor Of Marriage Equality

“I don’t … I treat my relationships like marriages, I really do … I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships. That’s the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.”

Charlize Theron, appearing on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” on why she’ll never marry. Theron was previously involved in a long relationship with actor Stuart Townsend, but the two were never engaged, and she told Morgan that marriage was “never something that was important [to me].” But even though Theron doesn’t want to walk down the aisle herself, she’s still a vocal advocate for marriage equality. Find out what she has to say about that, after the jump! Keep reading »
