There’s a Frisky staffer who shall remain nameless — but let’s just say her name rhymes with Messica Bakeman — who thinks fedoras look stupid. May I present irrefutable evidence to the contrary — Diane Kruger, rocking a fedora like nobody’s biz at Cannes. Sadly, the rest of us are not in the Diane Kruger-spending-the-weekend-in-France tax bracket, which is why I dug up 10 similar hats under $30. Keep clicking to check ‘em out!

Ashton Kutcher To Replace Charlie Sheen On “Two And A Half Men”

With Charlie Sheen out at “Two and a Half Men,” everyone’s been wondering who producers will hire to replace him on the insanely popular TV show. Well, I haven’t been wondering because I think that show is garbage, but this isn’t about me. Sheen was apparently in favor of his pal Rob Lowe stepping in. Hugh Grant was rumored to be up for the role, but negotiations “broke down” at the last minute. Well, it looks like a replacement has been found and it’s … Ashton Kutcher? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m A Stress Seeker

My name is Amelia and I am a stress seeker. According to a recent article in Women’s Health, stress seekers are “addicted to high-anxiety lifestyles … because somewhere along the line being stretched to the limit turned into a badge of honor.” I know about when it happened for me. When I was suddenly dumped by my fiance, after nearly five years together, I threw myself into my job. Working gave me something to focus on when the question, Who am I without him?, was keeping me up at night. No longer his fiancee, I needed to be of value to someone or something else. He didn’t want to marry me anymore, so I married my job instead. Keep reading »

Be Our “Blue Valentine”

Ryan Gosling — an actor who The Frisky has totally neutral opinions on — says that “Blue Valentine” is a film that couples should watch together, as it’s “a cautionary tale about what can happen to love if you ignore it and you take it for granted.” We happen to think that while the love between Gosling’s Dean and Michelle Williams‘ Cindy is far from perfect, the film itself is pretty close. Impeccably acted — in fact, much of the film was improvised — “Blue Valentine” flip-flops between the past and the present state of Dean and Cindy’s relationship, showing how love can “bloom and die,” without needing to reveal the details in between. The DVD includes deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes feature, and an on-set home movie. A must-have for the “movies that illustrate how much love can hurt” section on your shelf.

Check Out Exclusive Footage From The “Bridesmaids” Premiere!


Last week, Jessica and I were lucky enough to attend a screening of the movie “Bridesmaids,” which hits theaters this Friday. You can check out Jessica’s review of the film here, but allow me to add my own two cents and that is that, holy crap, was it hilarious. I’m already laying the groundwork for ducking out of the plans I made Friday night — cough, cough — so that I can go see “Bridesmaids” again. The movie made me feel really glad that I don’t have any friends (who aren’t already married) that would want me to be a bridesmaid in their wedding. Being not-too-good-a-friend to everyone has never been so awesome. I kid. Sort of. Anyway, here’s some exclusive footage from the “Bridesmaids” premiere. Woot woot! Keep reading »
