In case you were curious about how polyamorous relationships work in practice, especially when a child is involved, Anderson Cooper got up close and personal with a triad on his show. Okay, follow me here: Jaiya Ma and Jon Hanauer have been together since they met at Tantric Yoga teacher training 10 years ago. At some point, Jaiya brought another man into the relationship, but things ended with a bad breakup. Jaiya’s tendency was to “connect” post-breakup, while Jon’s was to “retreat.” So, instead of breaking up, Jon encouraged Jaiya to find someone else. Eventually, she met Ian Ferguson in dance class and they had an instant connection. Jaiya became pregnant with Ian’s baby. Now the three of them live together with two-year-old Eamon. Interestingly, Jon (not the biological father of Eamon) does a good portion of the child care. You can watch an additional clip of Anderson’s interview with them here. Do I smell a sitcom here?

I have so much nice jewelry and no home to keep it all in. No more searching for earring pairs and lost backings. No more tangled necklaces. No more rummaging for rings. Now I can nestle my most treasured trinkets in this found wood jewelry box. Made from bristlecone pine (among the world’s oldest living trees), each box is a hand-crafted original. There’s even a super secret drawer for your most valuable pieces.
Christmastime means Christmas crimes. People do stupid crap all year-long, but the holidays inspire a special brand of crazy. The 2011 holiday crime season is just ramping up. Just this week a burglar broke into a Pittsburgh liquor store and made off with two bottles of alcoholic egg nog. I mean, egg nog is good, but not worth going to jail for. Click on through to see some of the craziest Christmas crimes committed so far this year. [Huffington Post]
This year, instead of exchanging holiday presents here at The Frisky, we’ve decided to give each other slideshows of the gifts we would give one another if money were no object. First up is Amelia. She works her butt off and we think she deserves to be showered with presents. Click through to see the gifts in Amelia’s virtual stocking. It’s the thought that counts, right?
“When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on ‘Top Model.’ And it’s a character … So, when I’m sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I’m like, ‘Your picture’s not fierce…’ talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character … I don’t do that, like, in real life; I’m passive aggressive. I’m anti-confrontational; I’m even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational. It’s a character, but people think it’s real. I’m so not sexy. I know how to turn it on for a picture, but I’m not sexy in real life.”
– Tyra Banks on her “ANTM” alter ego. I wonder if she calls her alter ego Tookie. I wonder if she looks in her mirror each morning and whispers, “I am Tookie” to her reflection. I want to believe this so badly — that Tyra is really humble and meek and not the egomaniac she comes off as. Really I do. [Clutch Mag]
Ke$ha seems to be enjoying this mouth full of facial hair far too much. Apparently this is some kind of fetish of hers as evidenced on the blog Put Your Beard In My Mouth. Some of us like to chew on beards and some of us find that repulsive. To each her own. [Buzzfeed]
