Profile for Ami Angelowicz
There’s something that Amy Winehouse is more addicted to than crack or alcohol or even Blake. Yep, I’ve discovered a dirty little secret that Amy has been hiding for years now. I’ll give you a hint. They are flat, pink, and she never leaves home without them. Yep, homegirl is addicted to her ballet flats. She wears them … like every single day and it’s a big problem. Someone needs to stage a shoe intervention stat. After the jump, a brief history of Amy’s struggles.
Meet Donna Simpson, a 600-pound woman who wants to gain weight. This 42-year-old woman, already the Guinness World Record holder for “World’s Fattest Mom,” is on a mission to bulk up even more since the delivery of her daughter by 30 medical professionals. The SSBBW (super-size big beautiful woman) model’s goal is to get up to 1,000 pounds and be the face for the underground fat movement. She’s documenting her progress on her website, where she posts photos of her weight gain. You can also check out some pics of her modeling lingerie and find out about her sushi obsession. Umm … gluttonously despicable, radically subversive, or a heartwarming example self-acceptance? Discuss amongst yourselves. [Lemondrop]

“Mad Men” is back with a freaking vengeance. I am going to skip over Don’s rough sex with a prostitute (amazing!), Sally Draper’s ‘tude toward her new step-dad (love her!), and Joan Holloway’s bodacious bod (HAWT!), and focus on all that “John and Marsha” business between Peggy Olson and new employee Joey. (How cute is he, by the way?) Was anyone else as lost as I was? I thought I was prepared for 1964 pop culture references since I had done my research, but alas I was as ignorant as ever. After the jump, “John and Marsha” explained. Keep reading »
Twitter user Medlar wants to share his thoughts with the world. Yesterday he Tweeted, “I don’t think big turtles ever sleep.” Okay. I guess I’ll take his word for it considering he is um, a turtle, and a common, snapping one with impaired vision at that. His @turtlefeed has 368 followers. That’s like hundreds more than I have! He’s a pet turtle fahchrissakes and he’s somehow managed to gain fame on the interwebs. That’s not fair to us humans who do have very important and funny things to say. Keep reading »

I’m having issues lately with the fact that dating rituals seem to be getting further and further away from “natural”—like where two people meet, like each other, and decide to go out. I already have trouble accepting online dating as a necessary evil of being a 30-something single, but there are some cool sites out there that are giving it their best effort to make it as not awkward as possible. And then there are others that are ruining dating altogether. According to an article in The New York Times, there is new online dating trend that involves business cards with pickup lines and barcodes. Oh. No. Keep reading »
Most of us have an awful ex (or maybe a few) that we’d never be friends with. In fact, we may even wish we’d never crossed paths with them … except for that invaluable lesson we took away from the relationship. I finally figured out that alcoholics make bad boyfriends. Duh. It’s so simple you’d think it wouldn’t have taken me two, OK, three times to get it. Learning tough life lessons from a bad relationship brings meaning to our suffering. Well … kind of. After the jump, good wisdom that Frisky staffers have learned from bad exes. Share your lessons in the comments. Keep reading »
I just finished reading what I found to be a heartwarming story written by Marina Khidekel in Marie Claire about a 30-something woman who decided to have a baby with her gay best friend and his boyfriend. After getting out of a bad marriage, followed by a relationship with a dude who didn’t want kids, Kitty Stillufsen, was ready to start a family … with or without a man. “By the time I was 33, I’d pretty much done everything on my to-do list—traveled, carved out a career, bought two homes, and had a lot of fun … I felt empowered and free. But I wanted a family. I knew I had too much love in my heart not to have a baby, and I believed it was important that the child have a great dad,” she says.
And then while she was shopping for lingerie with her gay besties Darren and Sam, Kitty had a revelation. “In a total I-love-you-guys moment, I blurted out, ‘You two would be the best dads! When are we going to have a baby together?’” Keep reading »
