We’ve debated topics of varying importance on The Frisky, for this installment of “Debate This,” we’re tackling a subject that is truly timely and serious. Should we — and that’s a royal “we” — laugh when models fall on the runway? This sparked a little heated debate during our morning meeting today, so I’ve asked two particularly empassioned Frisky staffers to square off on the matter. The gloves (and the three-sizes-too-small-stilettos) come off, after the jump… Keep reading »
Before he was Patrick Bateman, or Batman, or that questionably unsexy temper tantrum throwing douche that we know and love, Christian Bale had a thing for Pac-Man shaped cereal. Luckily he was adorable back then, so posting this ’80s commercial probably won’t make him mad. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
It’s been, let’s see, almost three months since I’ve gotten laid. I’ve done a little making out, but in general, most of my sexual satisfaction these days is from watching “True Blood” every Sunday on HBO. It’s been a big year for vampires, but an even bigger one for vampire sex, which has got everyone from teenagers and Midwestern moms, to geek fan boys and, um, twentysomething bloggers obsessed with how they have it (“True Blood”) and how they resist having it (in “Twilight”). In both of these examples, the human is female and the vampire is male. That’s given some the idea that the vampire sex is bad for women because it fetishizes the meshing of sex, violence, and romance. To that I say, whatevs. If this fantasy is bad for women, well, then it’s good for me. Keep reading »
U.S. Olympics swimmer Ryan Lochte — who won our Olympic Hottie Face Off over Michael Phelps — flashed his bling after winning the men’s 200 meter individual medley final at the 2009 ConocoPhillips Nationals Championships & World Championship Trials. It wasn’t the first time he broke out the grill to celebrate either — he also rocked the look in 2007 to match his medals. So what do you think? Hot or not? [Indiana, 7/12/09] Keep reading »
Last week it was announced that Tara Subkoff, designer for the edgy, high-end brand Imitation of Christ, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and would be undergoing brain surgery. If she doesn’t get the surgery — which will require a year of recovery, during which she won’t be able to work — within two years, the tumor will be fatal. As a result, her friends — who include big time stars like “The Royal Tenenbaums” director Wes Anderson and actress Chloe Sevigny — are throwing her a silent auction art benefit (they’re asking for donations) tomorrow night in New York City to raise money to pay for the costly procedure.
Because Subkoff, it seems, does not have health insurance. My second response — after the initial, “Oh man, that’s sad” — was, “Umm, why the f**k not?” Keep reading »
Ding, dong, Wes is gone! The final three — Reid, Ed, and Kiptyn — go home with Jillian to meet her family tonight, I think, so there should be LOTS of aboots and oots to look forward to. Yay! See you at 8! Keep reading »
Hey, did you hear? First Daughter Malia Obama made a totally radical and controversial political statement this weekend when she wore a t-shirt with a PEACE SIGN on it. GASP! The fact that this bothers some people, makes my head want to explode. Since when is the desire for peace, let alone the peace symbol, a bad thing? The peace sign certainly is a fashion statement, in addition to a symbol of an idealistic wish for the world. Show your support for Malia and spread your own message of peace with the items after the jump. Keep reading »
I know it seems futile to get excited about a movie opening two years from now. But Ryan Reynolds has been given the part of DC comics hero “Green Lantern” (not to be confused with “Green Hornet” starring Seth Rogen) over Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, and Justin Timberlake. The character the Green Lantern is a test pilot who’s gifted a “power ring and battery lantern” by a dying alien, and is left to fight crime in the alien’s stead. The casting took forever because the director and producers each had their own favorite. Thank goodness Ryan won, ’cause that boy is gorgeous sans shirt. Sure, we have to wait 734 days to see him (fingers crossed) half-nakedly beating up bad guys, but a girl can still get excited, can’t she? [TheMoneyTimes] Keep reading »
This weekend, Jon Gosselin took his new girlfriend, 22-year-old Hailey Glassman, on a romantic trip to Europe. (FYI, Glassman is a different twentysomething woman than the one Gosselin cheated on his wife with.) Given the high-profile nature of Gosselin’s marriage, impending divorce, and, um, life, it’s hard to understand why anyone would be happy to be this guy’s, well, rebound. Is it just sex? Is Glassman hoping to get wined and dined with some of Gosselin’s “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ dollars? Or, gasp, does she think it could be love?
