Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Ami Angelowicz
I’m so sick of hearing about Twilight and how it is the ultimate ‘tween series. Uh, ‘tween reading was alive and kicking way before Twilight came on the scene. When I was 11, all I could think about was getting my hands on every Babysitters Club book known to girl. I read every single one in the series, in order, plus all of the specials. I was freaking obsessed. I mean, who wants to read about vampire romance when you can read about the trials and tribulations of babysitting and all of Claudia Kishi’s great outfits? God bless you, Ann M. Martin.
After the jump, the Frisky staffers share their guilty ‘tween reading pleasures. Share yours in the comments.
Bethany Storro, the 28-year-old Vancouver woman who claimed that an African-American woman with a ponytail attacked her and doused her with acid last month, is changing her story. She has come forward and admitted to burning her own face with acid. Keep reading »
Are you sitting down? Because this is big. A new study done in the U.K. found that the very, very best pickup line to say to someone you are interested in is simply “Hello” or “How are you?” Shut the front door! No wonder I’m single! I guess my line about your father being a thief because he stole the stars and put them in your eyes hasn’t been working. From now on, I’m just going to try saying “hello” to dudes I’m interested in. Thanks, science! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
“All I know is Wendy Williams done pissed my mamma off! I don’t wanna be in her path. To say ‘I’ve reserved myself a place in hell?!’ I’m incredibly disappointed to see someone with that kind of platform use it for such negativity and could be so mean and judgmental about a situation they know nothing about.”

It’s time to talk about that awful guy you dated for way longer than you care to admit. We want the story. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. We’ve all done it. And I firmly believe that having a bad boyfriend is the key to appreciating a good one. After the jump, Frisky staffers open up about the bad boys from our dark pasts. We’re really, really happy these relationships are over. Your turn to share! Keep reading »
A new study done at Oxford University says that both men and women lose an average of two close friends when they get involved in a serious relationship. Why? Because we tend to have about four to six people in our “circle of trust.” When we get involved with a new person, our attention is so focused on our new partner that the time and energy costs us about two core friendships. The study also found that having a child or even getting a new pet can have the same effect. I don’t like this study one bit. I intend to prove it wrong. I vow to keep all of my close friends even if I ever land a boyfriend … or a kid … or a dog. But I don’t think my friends have anything to worry about for the time being. Womp womp.

I am panicking about what “American Idol” is about to become. First, we find out that Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres are being replaced by J.Lo and Steven Tyler, who I thought was in rehab. And now they tell us that they are changing the audition process, too. The show announced that they are now accepting online submissions of which a few of the best will be chosen to move directly to L.A. Arrghhh! Too many changes at once! [Us Weekly]
But while they’re at it, here are some more suggested changes to shake things up. Keep reading »
