An Ohio woman must have meant to call her shrink and not the police when she reported a crime of passion in her home. What was the crime? Her daughter had performed oral sex on her husband. (He’s the girl’s stepfather.) I think that’s against the law of basic human appropriateness, but unfortunately there is no legislation for oral sex in the state of Ohio. But oddly enough, the woman wasn’t actually upset about the BJ—she was upset about the quality of the BJ. Apparently, her daughter was better at it. The police did not show up with handcuffs (these loonies would probably think the police were showing up for a kinky orgy), but I’m hoping that they suggested serious therapy for all parties involved. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. [Metro]

Just when I thought no one could exploit her struggle with weight any more than Carnie Wilson, Kirstie Alley is fat again and eager to capitalize on it. Rumor has it that she signed on to do a reality show on A&E about her struggle to lose weight. I wonder if it will air in the same time slot as Carnie’s show, “Unstapled”? And I wonder what it will be called—my best guesses are “Tipping The Scale” and “Really Fat Actress.” Inner grimace. Inner groan. Keep reading »
Tila Tequila wants to give back to the world. That’s why she is donating a plaster cast of her boobs to a charity auction. The Keep a Breast Foundation, the recipient of the proceeds of her boobies, certainly isn’t batting a nipple at her auction item. Get out your checkbooks, folks, because the likeness of Tila’s girls is already going for over $45,000 and there are still seven more days of bidding. I wonder how much they’ll go for? [New York Post]
Tila isn’t the first celeb to auction off racy items. After the jump, some more naughty celebrity auction items. Ooh la la!

Cany, a 33-year-old waitress in the U.K., thought she had hit the jackpot when she met British plastic surgeon Dr. Reza Vossough. He wasn’t physically attracted to her, but thought she had “potential,” so asked her to be his bride. Now, I’m not talking about mental, emotional, or spiritual potential. No, I’m talking about physical potential. If Vossough couldn’t find the perfect woman, he would create her. In the five years since their wedding, Vossough has performed over eight surgeries on Cany, pumped more than 1,600 grams of silicone into her body, and spent a grand total of $29,736 on the work. And finally, he’s fallen in love with her. Maybe he was drawing his inspiration from that horrifying reality show “The Swan”? The procedures he performed on his FrankenWife—breast augmentation (she went from an A to an F), lip boost, eye lift, forehead reduction (?), tummy tuck, thigh lift, but tuck, liposuction, and Botox. “It’s almost like being God,” said Vossough. “When I first met Cany, she had physical deficiencies, but I could see there was something there. She had big hips and big thighs, so we made corrections, then did a little bit more. I was interested in working on her. It’s better than nature could do.” Anybody else scared?

Here at The Frisky, we spend an awful lot of time reflecting on, pontificating about, and debating the state of things for women of the world today. How would things be different without feminism? Did it even work? Are we better or worse off than our grandmothers? Mothers? But no dialogue can be complete if not placed within the context of history. That’s why I am so excited about journalist Gail Collins’ new book, When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present, which is currently on the bestseller list. Not only was Gail the first woman to be an editor at The New York Times, where she continues today as a columnist, but now she has penned the new must-have text for modern feminists. Her simple message to our generation: We must not take our astounding journey for granted. While we all know the big moments in women’s history—getting the right to vote, appointing the first woman to the Supreme Court, etc.—I’ve wondered what smaller moments Gail thinks had a huge pull on who we are today. After the jump, Gail breaks down for us the five most historically significant moments for women that no one knew were huge at the time. It’s an inspiring herstory lesson. Keep reading »
I barely knew that there was a civil war in Sierra Leone until it was declared over in 2002. I remember seeing an episode of “Oprah” about the horrors women were suffering there: rape, murder, AIDS, extreme poverty. I knew as horrific as it was, I needed to know more. So I will definitely be reading the new memoir Bite of the Mango that tells the excruciating details of Sierra Leone survivor, Mariatu Kamara, who was 11 when her village was raided by rebel forces who took her prisoner. Her story is so unbelievable that you would swear it was fiction.

Causes like rebuilding New Orleans, protesting animal cruelty with PETA, and helping poor children are totally played out. No, today’s press-seeking celebrity will have to come up with something more exotic. How about saving the Gypsies?! In Eastern Europe, especially in Romania where their population is close to half a million (that’s a lot of caravans!), Gypsies are facing major discrimination in housing, health care and education due to their nomadic ways. Who better to help them get the equal rights they deserve than the former material girl, Madonna. Always on the cutting edge, she spoke out about Gypsy discrimination at a recent concert in Bucharest to the dismay of many of her non-Gypsy fans, who booed her offstage. But Madge does not stand alone in the fight. Another celeb is applauding Madonna’s Gypsy support. Ethan Hawke and his mom Leslie, who has been running a charity organization to support the Gypsies since 2000, think Madonna is a gem for raising awareness about the problem. She even donated a pair of autographed Christian Dior shoes to be auctioned off at a recent Gypsy charity ball. Next stop for Madge … Gypsy baby adoption? [PopEater] Keep reading »
When I think of Kenny G, his long, curly fro and smooth jazz saxaphone stylings come to mind—not nerdy glasses and skinny jeans. And yet, Kenny G is teaming up with indie rock gods, Weezer, for a song on their album, Raditude, which drops next week. Frontman Rivers Cuomo apparently emailed The G and asked him to contribute a solo for “I’m Your Daddy.” Kenny fully admits that he didn’t even know who Weezer was before he got the email, but that didn’t stop him from diving fro first into the collaboration. My ears are already confused but still … can’t wait to hear it! [Popeater]
Kenny G and Weezer are not the first odd couple to make beautiful music together. After the jump music’s oddest pairings.

The blind and deaf communities are not rejoicing after the announcement that Abigail Breslin has signed on to play Helen Keller in the upcoming Broadway revival of “The Miracle Worker.” Why? Simply put, she’s not blind or deaf. Advocacy groups feel strongly that the production should consider using an actress from the blind or deaf community because of the larger human and artistic issues at stake. But the producers of the show are not interested in humanity. They are interested in ticket sales—they feel that their primary responsibility is to ensure the commercial success of the production, and in this economy it could take an actual miracle worker to have a wildly successful show without a star. But if it’s any consolation … they will try their best to find a blind or deaf understudy for the part. So what do you think? Is it wrong for Abigail Breslin to land the role of Helen Keller?
