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 »
We all have those people who inform and inspire our style choices regardless of what is in style. Mine is Stevie Nicks circa 1977. I call her look, which I am forever trying to achieve, “black magic bohemian.” It’s all drapey lace blouses and dresses, silky scarves scarves, gold necklaces, and boots. It says, “I’m a free spirit with a dark side.” Yes! After the jump, Frisky staffers share their personal style icons. Who are yours?
Tim Gunn is on diva blast. If someone’s pissed off polite Tim, they must be a real a**hat. Ahem … Gretchen on “Project Runway,” who he tore a new one recently. Even though he’s already unleashed his diva destroyer on “PR” this season and exposed the worst celebrity divas in his book Gunn’s Golden Rules, he’s not done yet. He has a little something to say about Ms. Thigh Highs, Taylor Momsen. “What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself, ‘Why are we all being held hostage by this brat?” he said of his experience as a guest star on “Gossip Girl.” Go Tim! Give out those diva demerits! The “d” term is a four-letter word in Hollywood, where implying that someone is an un-humble egomaniac is the kiss of death. Imagine that … a famous person being an egomaniac.

In case you folks were thinking about masturbating in public anytime soon, let William Tyler Black be an example of what not to do. The 28-year-old substitute teacher (yes … teacher) was arrested in Florida (yes … Florida) yesterday for spreading his baby batter all over a local Walmart (yes … Walmart). Keep reading »
Is anyone else miffed about how a baroque drag clown made it to the season finale of “America’s Got Talent”? By day, he’s a humble aspiring performer, John Quale, who works in a metal shop. By night, he transforms into his alter ego, Prince Poppycock, who sings opera-inspired songs in elaborate hair and makeup. I don’t get it. But America seems to. You can’t make this stuff up. Watch out Lady Gaga—Prince Poppycock may be prancing your way. Keep reading »
I didn’t think it was possible for “Hoarders” to get any better than it was last season. Wrong! I was catching up on a few episodes from season two and they’ve taken the show to a whole new level—they’ve found an entire family of hoarders! But no one has blown the lid off my head like Sir Patrick, who just goes by Sir. He’s a minister, spiritual healer, and self-proclaimed leprechaun who calls his home Camelot. A few more things you need to know about Sir … he drives with a life-sized porcelain doll sitting shot gun in his car and that braid that you see him wearing is fake. I also got the impression that he may be a pedophile when he started crying about the little girl next door who passed away and how his collection of 500 dolls is to commemorate her. Noooooooo! Watch the full clip of Sir Patrick here. I highly recommend you watch the entire episode and the entire season. Nothing has ever motivated me to clean my apartment more. Keep reading »
