Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Ami Angelowicz
The New York season of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” has been a little rough to watch so far. Between Patti Stanger’s broken engagement, her emotional outbursts (mostly at the new intern), and her total lack of comprehension of the NYC dating scene, she’s been in a noticeably foul mood. However, her concept of the five non-negotiables, which she’s been pushing hard this season, is rather brilliant. She typically uses it to get douchebag dudes to stop being delusional about what kind of women will actually be willing to shack up with them, but I decided to give the exercise a whirl myself. Of course, I have that wish list that every single woman has, you know, the one with the hundreds of qualities that her dream guy will possess. I know, keep dreamin’, sister. But seriously, I do think it was a helpful exercise to pare that long-ass list down to the absolute essentials. After the jump, I and some other Frisky staffers share our five non-negotiables. Share yours in the comments. Keep reading »
“I couldn’t see the teleprompter. So I saw an ad that said, ‘We do a Pap smear and give you red glasses.’ They said were going to trade me up [for a more expensive pair]. I said: ‘You’re not going to trade me up. I don’t have that kind of money.’ It’s all they had for $19.95.”
—Former talk show host Sally Jessy Raphael explains where she got her signature, over-sized, red glasses on “Oprah.” I’m sorry. Come again? A medical office that sells glasses and gives pap smears? Did that kind of place exist in the ’80s? If so, how come Sally didn’t cover that as a topic on her show? [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
What kind of crack was Amazon smoking when the retailer decided it was OK to sell the book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child Lover’s Code of Conduct? Amazon was initially standing behind Philip R. Greaves II’s self-published Kindle e-reader title saying, “Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.” After internet-wide protest and the popular Twitter trending topic #BoycottAmazon, Amazon has removed the title from its website. I am completely against censorship, but good lord! Teaching someone how to be a pedophile is beyond an “objectionable criminal act” — it is abominable! Finally, how long before this Philip R. Greaves II is investigated for his crimes? [MSNBC] Keep reading »
OK, Olivia Wilde, if you were trying to win the grand prize in the imaginary wet T-shirt contest with your spread in the December issue of Vanity Fair, you did it! Congrats on taking a very classy wet T-shirt pic. It looks like they even airbrushed out your nipples to keep things nice and clean. [Huffington Post]
After the jump, some more celebs competing in the imaginary wet T-shirt contest. Get your tequila shots ready.
“Lake Shore” is Canada’s answer to MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” It’s a new reality show that will follow “eight vibrant and volatile 20-somethings through the streets of Toronto.” But the Canucks upgraded the concept to make it more of a multi-cultural, pan-sexual, guido bonanza where STD testing is free for all. The cast includes Sibel the Turk, Joey the Italian, Anni Mei the Vietnamese, Tommy Hollywood the Czech, Robyn the Jew, Salem the Lebanese (and he’s gay!), Karolina the Pole, and Downtown D the Albanian. And they already hate each other before they’ve even moved in! Oh Canada, how can we ever thank you? [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
“There was at time in my life where all I wanted was a relationship and I thought that was the most important thing. Is it weird that I’m now the single one? It’s definitely a change for me. I have always been the one in a relationship. I like that role, I want that best friend partnership.”
—Kim Kardashian on embracing her unexpected single life. Yes, this is really a People cover story. She talks about how she jumped from one relationship to the next since she was a teen but she feels “powerful” now as a single woman. But the headline is “I Thought I’d Be Married By Now” AND the sub-headline is “I Want to Fall In Love.” My head is spinning trying to decipher all the mixed messages. How am I supposed to feel about being single? Please tell me, mass media. [People] Keep reading »
Oooh! Miley Cyrus is crushing on someone. She was allegedly hanging out all night with Kings of Leon bassist Jared Folowill at the MTV EMAs this weekend. And she’s been texting him non-stop. Even though they claim to be friends who go way back, Miley did once admit that she thought Jared was “pretty good-looking.” Can’t fool us! That’s a crush! [NY Post]
