When Did “Glee” Become An After School Special?

I love Lady Gaga and “Born This Way” as much as the next girl, but this preview of “Glee“‘s “Born This Way” episode just reminds me of an after-school special. (Except for the part when Mr. Shue calls Gaga “the queen of self-love,” which just made me think about masturbating.)

Check out another clip from “Glee” after the jump: Keep reading »

Johnny Weir Debuting Line Of Little Black Dresses

You can be sure Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir‘s personal closet is beyond — but now the gay icon/dream BFF is making sure your closet can be beyond, too. Johnny’s debuting a line of six LBDs garnished with sequins, ostrich feathers, tulle and silk taffetta on eDressMe.com on April 30. Sizes range from 0 to 12, while princes range between $198 to $298, which is a bit steep for a “celebrity line,” I’ll grant you. (I wouldn’t fork over that kind of dough for, say, Jessica Simpson.) But Johnny Weir isn’t just any old celeb. As a boy who needed to twist and turn and double-axle in costumes throughout his ice skating career, I bet Johnny knows a thing or two about design. Stay tuned for a planned winter 2011/2012 collection from Johnny Weir, too!

A Super Mario Brothers Proposal Is Not For Everyone — But It Was For This Girl

If my marriage proposal involved video games in any way, I would cry tears of despair. This chick, April, however, cried tears of joy when her boyfriend proposed to her after decking out their apartment like a Super Mario Brothers game. (This video is a year old, but sorry, it’s adorable!) Maybe when April gets knocked up her hubby can get her a Super Mario Brothers nursery, too. [SayOMG.com] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Sentenced To Jail — Again

Lindsay Lohan is headed back to jail — again. An L.A. judge sentenced Lilo to 120 days in jail for violating her probation with that whole necklace stealing/borrowing hullabaloo. Lucky for her, the judge downgraded her felony grand theft charge to a misdemeanor. But unlucky for her, the judge told Lindz she should have notified the jewelry store that she had taken their necklace instead of allegedly only returning it after she heard cops would search her apartment for it. As of 4:30 p.m. PST, the pride of Long Island was on her way to Lynwood Correctional Facility, the same jail where she served 13 days of a 90-day sentence before being dispatched to rehab. On tonight’s return to Lynwood, Lindsay’s expected to have another mug shot taken and post bail. Lindsay was also sentenced to 480 hours of community service, including 360 hours at the Downtown Women’s Center in L.A. Maybe volunteer work will teach this freckled jailbird to mend her naughty ways? Jail doesn’t seem to be working.

Today’s Lady News: Readers’ Submission Edition

Hey there, Frisky readers! A few weeks ago, when I took the day off of work, I asked readers to post their own news article and blog post links in the comments for a Today’s Lady News column, readers’ submission edition. I was so impressed by all the smartypants readers we’ve got out there that I want to do it again (and occasionally in the future, too!). The rules are the same: Submit your own links to news articles and blog posts about women, girls, trans-identified people, gender roles, feminism or sexism in the comments. Just write a sentence or two summary explaining what the link is about and give everyone a heads up if it has language or imagery that’s NSFW.

I’ll be back with our regularly scheduled Today’s Lady News on Monday. Thanks everyone! Keep reading »

Craziest. School. Project. Ever.

Gaby Rodriguz, a high school girl in Washington, faked a pregnancy for six months of her senior year as part of a school project on stereotypes. For the past six months, students at Toppenish High School in Washington thought Rodriguez, 17, was pregnant.

Tina Fey Sticks Up For Olivia Munn & Answers The Question, “Is Liz Lemon Ugly?”

GQ: Lady blogs like Jezebel exploded after the episode with the Liz-hires-a-feminist-comic thing. It sure seemed like you were commenting on the outrage when Olivia Munn — hot lady, not necessarily hot comic — was hired on “The Daily Show.”

Tina Fey: I was actually really pleased that Jezebel got that it was about the whole Olivia thing, because the treatment of Olivia was weird on that site. She just kept getting reamed! And it was this weird mix. They would go after her, and then the next thing would be like, “Defending the Rights of Sex Workers.” And I was just like, “Well, why can’t we just say Olivia’s a sex worker? Leave her alone!”

— Tina Fey in GQ talking about the “30 Rock” episode “Joan Of Snark,” which addressed the way ladyblogs like Jezebel (and, to be fair, The Frisky) have criticized “The Daily Show”‘s Olivia Munn. Some would say Olivia leads with the “hot piece of ass” angle, but not Tina Fey.

After the jump, Tina gamely answered GQ‘s question, “Is Liz Lemon ugly?” Keep reading »
