Disney Shows Get Girls Interested In Bad Boys Awfully Early

Last night I went to dinner with a friend and her adorable four-and-a-half year old daughter Eva. I was pleasantly mortified to discover that Eva and I shared the same taste in music — we’re both really into Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana. I swear, as I get older, my taste in music gets more juvenile. Anyway, Eva and I dished for a while about Miley, That’s So Raven, and Zach and Cody (two other shows on the Disney Channel), before her mom and I started discussing the weird values these shows start ingraining in the little ones before they’re even old enough to read. For example, Zach and Cody are twin brothers — one of them is the smart, nerdy, “good” one, while the other is wild, naughty, and a bit of a bad boy — naturally, many, many little girls are known to like the bad boy best. Isn’t it weird how pop culture tries to get you to choose between them before you’re even in puberty? Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Gaspard Ulliel

Who?, you may be asking. Does it really matter? Honestly, this might be the most exciting Daily Hotness yet, as we just stumbled upon his photos yesterday and our knees instantly went weak in the way that only pouty lipped French men can cause. Gaspard is indeed a French actor, who you may have caught in Paris, Je T’Aime and Hannibal Rising. If you haven’t seen him anything yet, hopefully your local art house theater will be showing any one of his upcoming French film projects. Otherwise, you may just need to put on some sexy Edith Piaf and peruse the extensive online gallery of photos on his website (otherwise known as our Friday night plans!).

The Frisky TV: Does A Threesome Ruin A Relationship?

We cannot keep track of how many times we’ve heard dudes say that their ultimate dream in life is to have a threesome with either two random sexual partners or their girlfriend. But we’ve always had an inkling that having one might not be so good in the long run. So we sent Lori out onto the streets to find out what average guys and gals think about the ol’ menage a trois.

Star Couplings: Ashlee And Pete’s Union Gets The Stamp Of Approval

  • Life & Style says Jamie Spears has asked Justin Timberlake to come to a barbeque this summer so that he can see Britney Spears and give her some “closure”. A year ago, this would have made us squeal, but even we’re over a JT and Brit reunion. [Contact Music]

    Did Roseanne Get Her Vag Remodeled?

    Oh Roseanne! You so crazy! The “comedian” stopped by Craig Ferguson’s show last night and told him all about having vaginal rejuvenation surgery. We like to believe this is about as true as her singing the National Anthem was musically supreme. Keep reading »

    The Frisky’s Amelia Gets Fondled And Fitted!

    It’s National Bra Fit Week and I am a complete bra idiot, which explains why I have been apparently wearing the wrong size my entire adult life. But you probably have too! The fact is, most women are wearing the wrong size bra, so to prove that I was one of them, I went to two bra shops to get fitted. The results were surprising, to say the least. Check out the video, after the jump. Keep reading »

    The Daily Hotness: Usher

    Usher kind of seems like a creepster, what with the cheating on TLC’s Chili, etc. But he’s really ridiculously hot and we totally love his smooth jams. Not all the Daily Hotness guys need to be worthy of bringin’ home to mom. Keep reading »

    So I’m Engaged: 99% Of Wedding Dresses Are Fugly

    This may come as a total shock to you, but there are a lot of hideous wedding dresses. I expected to see a bunch of them when I went on my first wedding dress shopping trip, but, as an admitted shop-a-holic with a pretty decisive “style”, I didn’t expect to find the whole process so difficult. Not to obnoxiously reference that TV show, but you know that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie is engaged to Rub-Mah-Belly-Baby-Aidan and she and Miranda try wedding dresses on and she gets a crazy case of the hives? Well, my reaction to putting on my first bridal gown was not that extreme, but I did get a bit of the clammy palms, cold sweat, and “holy crap”-need to swallow hard. Keep reading »

Not including Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing because that’s just a given. Add your own in the comments!
