In celebration, we baked Tom a cake. Not really though. We just found a cake on the Internet while searching for sexy Tom pics. And we were sad that all men can’t grow choco-sprinkle chest hair. And then we found lots of people bake celebrity cakes. Which is weirdo. And then we searched for those. Check ‘em out!

Our beloved Rachel Maddow was on “The View” yesterday morning, dishing the news with the gals, and managed to not give Elisabeth Hasselbeck any dirty looks. Our fave part of the interview is when she talks about how meeting her partner, Susan, was a lot like “Desperate Housewives.” Clip above! Keep reading »
Celebs are fond of dual careers, especially careers that allow them to indulge their many “creative” endeavors — painting, music, fashion design, etc. But with the recent reveal of the cover for Lauren Conrad’s first chick lit novel, “L.A. Candy,” and the news that hot smarty pants, James Franco (he has a degree from Columbia), is working on a book of short stories, it seems “novelist” is the hot new resume addition for the rich and famous. But will Conrad and Franco’s novels be any good? My hunch is a resounding “no,” at least for Conrad’s effort, but I may be willing to give Franco a chance. Of course, they are hardly the first celebs to pick up a pen — after the jump, seven celebrity penned books that should be burned. Keep reading »
Aside from Carla, the crazy Muppet-like chef, our favorite contestant on “Top Chef” this season was Fabio, hands down — and the fans agreed! On the reunion show, which aired on Wednesday, Fabio won “Fan Favorite” — and now you can take Fabio home with you. Show your amore for the sexy and charming Italian with this “I Heart Fabio” shirt. The only thing that would make it better, is if the back said, “This is Top Chef, not Top Scallop.” [$24.95, BravoTV.com] Keep reading »
The April issue of Glamour features a pretty awesome spread of current female stars channeling icons in women’s history. My favorites? Alexis Bleddel as Rosie the Riveter, Hayden Panettiere as Amelia Earhart, and America Ferrera as Dolores Huerta. Some of the choices were more pop culture oriented (Lindsay Lohan as “Like A Virgin” era Madonna, Emma Roberts as Audrey Hepburn), while others were kind of random (Odette Yustman, Spencer Grammer, and Rumer Willis as “The Women Of Woodstock?”). Of course, had they devoted more pages to the feature, there were other women’s history icons I would have liked them to show, but maybe that’s because we’re devoting the whole month of March to National Women’s History Month, so I’ve got cool, kick ass women on the brain. Anyway, after the jump, 10 other female icons I would have loved to see portrayed by current female stars… Keep reading »
Hooray! America’s Next Top Model is BACK and more ridiculous than ever. The best part of each season’s first episode is finding out what theme TyTy and the Jays have decided on for that cycle. Last season, the theme was so ridiculous (um, sending the models into this weird chamber, in some sort of weird laboratory/space motif) that she scrapped it by, like, episode three. This season, Tyra decided to go back in time, to the Roman era, as she — “The Goddess of Fierce” — begins her quest for America’s…Next…Top…Model. In the clip above, TyTy’s disciples freak the eff out as she makes her entrance, and one model declares her to be “extra-terrestrial.” From the Planet Fivehead? We couldn’t agree more.
Tune in NEXT WEDNESDAY at 8pm EST, as we begin our weekly “Top Model” liveblogging, with yours truly, and a few other Frisky guest bloggers! Keep reading »

This bright blue, fleece sweater jacket from Silence & Noise is perfect for the impending spring weather, and would look great roughing up a structured dress or warming up a denim mini and T-shirt. The only negative? Your rejected cardigans will be sad. [$68, UrbanOutfitters.com] Keep reading »
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has officially charged Chris Brown with felony assault and making criminal threats for allegedly assaulting Rihanna. According to the search warrant that was leaked today, Chris Brown allegedly tried to push Rihanna out of the car he was driving, slammed her head against the car window, and punched her. He also alledgedy said, “I’m going to beat the —– out of you when we get home.” When Rihanna was able to call and leave a message for her assistant (telling her to call the police), Brown supposedly said, “You just did the stupidest thing ever. I’m going to kill you.” [TMZ] Keep reading »
March is National Women’s History Month, and we’re celebrating by sharing a lady we admire each weekday.
MARY-ELLIS BUNIM (1946-2004)
If you grew up watching soap operas or spent your high school and college years slacking off on homework in favor of a little show called “The Real World,” you have Mary-Ellis Bunim to thank. The TV producer was born in Massachusetts in 1946 and spent a significant chunk of her career working in daytime television, overseeing over 2,500 hours of programming as executive producer of classic soaps like “Search For Tomorrow,” “Loving,” “Santa Barbara,” and “As The World Turns.”
But in the early ’90s, the ambitious Bunim founded Bunim-Murray Productions with Jonathan Murray, and pitched a bunch of scripted soap operas to MTV. When they discovered that it was too expensive for the network, they decided to try out a new model — unscripted TV starring “real” people, as opposed to actors. “The Real World” was born, and the series was a such a massive success, it’s spawned a spin-off, “Road Rules,” and is now in its 21st season, with a 22nd season to debut later this year. It’s no wonder The New York Times dubbed her, “the mother of reality television.” Keep reading »
This print ad for Imedeen’s skin whitening pill is so awesomely offensive because A) the very nature of skin whitening products is racist, B) making a blow job joke to sell a product is sexist, and C) suggesting she swallows (especially as I am eating a yogurt) is disgusting! It’s a triple threat! Way to go, Imedeen! [Feministing] Keep reading »
