Drop Earrings For Every Occasion

Every gal needs a pair of earrings in her jewelry box that add just the right amount of glam to three essential and regularly worn outfits: 1) an otherwise casual look like a jeans and T; 2) a cocktail dress for a wedding or fancy-pants event; and 3) an otherwise staid interview ensemble. These minty green amethyst drop “Jocelyn” earrings by Taylor Kenney are exactly what we’re talking about. A simple rock surrounded by a hand-crocheted gold border, these stunners could easily take center stage or simply accent the rest of your look. Given the wear you’ll get out of them, we say they’re worth the tiny splurge.

6 Pop & Hip-Hop Stars Rumored To Be Members Of The Illuminati

The other night, a friend and I were discussing the pros and cons of the guy she’s currently dating. Pro: he has an 8-inch wang. Con: he is a major conspiracy theorist. “What do you mean?” I asked. “Oh, you know, he thinks 9/11 was an inside job, that Osama bin Laden has been dead for years, and that Jay-Z is member of the Illuminati,” she explained, rolling her eyes. “Wait, what?” I was aware of the 9/11 and Osama nonsense, but while I had heard of the Illuminati — more on that in a minute — the gossip-hound in me was super curious about the Jay-Z angle. “Jay-Z is in the Illuminati?” “Yeah, that’s what he thinks,” my friend said. “Jay-Z, Kanye, Rihanna, Beyonce — all of them. He even thinks that the whole Kanye West/Taylor Swift incident at the VMAs a few years ago was actually planned by the Illuminati as Taylor’s initiation.” “Excuuuuuse me?” I said, completely stupified. “Yeah, look it up when you get home,” she said. “It’s all over the internet.” Oh, and friends, did I ever look it up and this silly talk is all over the internet…

Love It Or Leave It: Wendy Williams Has No Use For Guy Besties


Here’s where Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s new show “Love Triangle,” and I differ: she says she has no use for men as friends unless “we’re making money together.” I, on the other hand, love having guys as friends, especially when they share my interest in TV shows featuring incestuous sex and slaughter (“Game of Thrones”), Italian pork products, and generalizing about the genders. Perhaps Wendy would feel the same if her best guy friend was John DeVore. Be sure to watch “Love Triangle” weeknights at 7:00 p.m. EST /6:00 p.m. CST on the Game Show Network.

Beagle Catches Ball — With His Paws!


My pup Lucca, while brilliant, well-read and a delight at dinner parties, is capable of only one dog trick — she can catch a ball in her mouth. Like any obsessed dog mom who thinks her pup s**ts rainbows, I have been pretty impressed by this ability. I am less impressed now that I have seen this video of a beagle catching a ball with his paws. Time to channel the Tiger Mom and get Lucca mastering this one ASAP. Lessons commence immediately!

Random Single Gal Recipe: Creamy Linguine With Roasted Tomatoes, Peas & Mozzarella

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week), I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.
