Star Couplings: Gwen Stefani Pops Out A Little Zuma

  • Gwen Stefani FINALLY popped, after the longest pregnancy in the history of celebrity knock-ups. She and husband Gavin Rossdale named the little boy Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale. It is impossible for me to come up with a better joke than Michael K at DListed, who wrote, “Zuma Nesta Rock sounds like a planned community in Arizona.” So true. [DListed]

    Poll: Does The Term “Wife Beater Tank-Top” Offend You?

    A couple weeks ago we did a post on this awesome, but expensive tank-top/garter combo from Kiki De Montparnasse — because the tank was the kind with the ribbing, I used what I thought was the most common term for the tank itself. A wife beater. Last night, I got an email from a reader which read:

    There is absolutely no reason for a website for ladies to be using “wife beater” as fun slang! Ladies in the know also call them boy beaters — I don’t appreciate that either but take note of the language you use and accept. It influences our culture!

    Crave: Pearl & Ribbon Necklace

    Pearls are timeless and ribbon is so girly. But for some reason, when you put the two together, they kind of a have a rock ‘n’ roll edge. This necklace from Wink would look amazing with a white wife beater tank, jeans, and heels. Kind of like Jackie O, gone bad. [$58, WinkNYC.com] Keep reading »

    The Top 11 Songs About Lady Flowers

    The music industry is dominated by men, so it’s no wonder there’s about 10 bazillion songs all about wiener and not so many about vagina. But I found 11 amazing songs that truly spew pure poetry about patsy, yoni, punani, dew flaps, sugar basin, jam cookie, or whatever else you wanna call it. Keep reading »

    The Frisky’s Guide To Snooping

    I enjoy a good snoop — when I’m in a house that’s not my own, I have been known to rifle through a drawer or two, check out the medicine cabinet, and try on the owner’s clothing (including a wedding dress once). A few months ago, when my fiance was out of town, I went through all his photos of him with his ex-girlfriend. Sometimes, if he leaves his laptop on and his email is up there on the screen just BEGGING for me to take a looksie, I’ll glance, but never actually open anything. Then again, I have never seen anything that got my curiosity brewing beyond control.

    The point is, everyone snoops, at least a little, and no one more so than the protagonist of the book I’m reading, Whacked by Jules Asner. It’s chick lit, but it’s not crappy or badly written, though it’s definitely beach-worthy. In the book, Dani uses her skills as a writer for CSI-esque crime show to snoop on everyone from the owners of the open houses she attends to her no-good boyfriend. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with her tactics and tips, as well as some of the handy online tools she used, so I decided to assemble a guide to snooping, after the jump. Don’t blame me if you get caught red-handed though. I am hardly a professional. Keep reading »

    The Today Show’s Wacky Olympics Coverage

    The Today Show‘s coverage of the Olympics in Beijing has been cracking me up. This morning they featured this troupe of Chinese old women who taught themselves hip-hop dance moves and yesterday morning, Al Roker and Matt Lauer showed off their skills on the dance floor, performing rhythmic gymnastics. Poor Al looks like he might have a heart attack at any second. Clip above! Keep reading »
