Frisky Exclusive Q&A: Guy Proposes To His Girlfriend Via Whisper Chain

By now you might have seen the video above, in which a guy simultaneously sets a Guinness World Record (for the longest whisper chain at 59 people) and proposes to his girlfriend. But when I saw it, I realized something — hey, I KNOW that guy! His name is Jake Bronstein and you may recognize him as a cast member from “Road Rules: Islands” (1997) if you are as old as I am and a devoted watcher of MTV’s crap. Since then, he’s pretty much avoided the reality TV ghetto, instead working at a variety of men’s magazines, launching his own blog, Zoomdoggle, and helping to bring our new web series, “MERRIMe.com,” to the masses. The last time I saw Jake, he told me about his girlfriend, Kristina, and said he was “gettin’ engaged soon.” Little did I realize that their engagement would become viral video fodder. Jake was nice enough to tear himself away from engagement bliss to answer a few questions about his aww-inducing proposal. Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

Gallery: Emile Hirsch And Other Celebrities With Lecherous Doppelgangers

On Thursday night, Emile Hirsch showed up at a Diesel U concert at Webster Hall in New York City to find out that…he’d already arrived with an entourage of eight. The Emile doppelganger had arrived first, and a publicist asked him if he wanted to walk the red carpet, which he kindly refused. But that didn’t stop him from taking a whole bunch of comp tickets. I hope the two didn’t see each other, cause I hear when parallel beings come into contact, one of them has to be destroyed! [NY Post]

Of course it’s not the first time that someone has posed as a star, hoping for star treatment. Here are other celebrities with diabolical imposters.

Nerd Girl Porn: The Hotties Of The UFC

Have you heard? The UFC, otherwise known as the Ultimate Fighting Championship, which features dudes beating the crap out of each other using mixed martial arts (MMA), is THE sport to watch. And it’s not just for guys — it’s for women, as well. An increasing number of ladies I know are majorly into the UFC, tuning in for fight nights with the same kind of enthusiasm teenage girls show for “Twilight.” Could it be because of all the hotties engaging in animalistic blood sport? It’s so…primal. Keep clicking to check out some of the major players…

“True Blood” Recap: Godrick Saves The Day!

Last night’s episode of “True Blood” was mega exciting. In a nutshell: Bill was stuck in a hotel room with his maker Lorena and we were treated to another flashback, though this one was less bloody and sexual. I wonder if, as time goes on, we’ll get to see flashbacks of all the vamps in different time periods. Aren’t you just dying to see what Eric looked like in the ’70s? I know I am!

Could You Ever Get Past Hearing “I Don’t Love You Anymore?”

One of the big bombshells my ex dropped the day he decided he needed a break was, “I don’t know that we’re in love anymore.” I didn’t buy it. I was in love and I was certain he was too. He was confused, he needed space, and I was going to give it to him, despite the fact that for many, his words would have been the final nail in the coffin. So I was fascinated to read Laura Munson’s “Modern Love” column in Sunday’s New York Times about her refusal to fight with her husband when he declared he no longer loved her. Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Christina Hendricks On What Makes “Mad Men” So Sexy

“There’s something in what you don’t see. There’s restraint. I’ve had people say to me, ‘My husband and I watch it and we always have sex afterwards.’ I think it’s really hot that some of the things it’s stirring up in people are very naughty things.”

Music Video: Shakira’s A “She Wolf”

Check out the video for Shakira’s single “She Wolf.” In it, the Colombian singer does some weird yoga poses, dances really bizarrely, beyond her usual belly dancin maneuvers, moves her ass like I ain’t never seen an ass move before, climbs around in a cage, rocks an asymmetrical bodysuit, sports those long nails we told you were going to be a trend, and frollicks with a wolf. It’s odd and totally fierce at the same time. Her new album, Beware The She Wolf, is out soon — are you excited? Keep reading »

This Weekend I … Asked Joseph Gordon-Levitt Out On A Date!

This weekend I watched “60 Seconds with Joseph Gordon-Levitt” on Cinemax On Demand (watch it, after the jump) and learned something great — his Twitter handle. In fairness, a simple Google search would have given me the same info, but I like to think the TV was giving me a sign. A sign that I should ask him out on a date via the awesome power of Twitter. So I did. His reply is still pending. Stay tuned! Keep reading »

Cougars, Pumas, And TWITS: Which Ridiculous Female Stereotype Are You?!

If cougars are women over the age of 40 who “prey” upon younger men, and pumas are women just like them, but a tad younger, than what the heck is a TWIT? According to Australia’s Herald Sun, TWIT stands for Teenage Women In Their Thirties.

Just like men with Peter Pan-syndrome who are not ready to grow up, TWITs are putting serious relationships and parenthood on hold, instead choosing to continue partying and enjoying the freedoms they discovered in their teens.

So, in other words, TWITs are just like pumas, only they’re all about having fun and, like, partying over landing a younger man. Why, why, why so many nicknames for women and the lifestyle choices they make that are not so crazy different from men? [News.com.au] Keep reading »
