Girl Talk: I’ve Moved Out Of Our Apartment

Of all the aspects that were difficult about my recent breakup from my boyfriend of two years, the hardest was moving out of the apartment that we shared together. You can verbally say all kinds of things: we’re broken up, we’re on a break, we’re seeing other people, whatever. Those words might change from day to day.

I built a life, a relationship, with someone and then all of a sudden, it was just my things in an apartment that was now his. Keep reading »

James Franco Gets Trapped Under A Mini-Fridge!


Calamity struck at “The Daily Show” yesterday, when actor James Franco went looking for a Snickers bar … and a mini-fridge fell on his arm, trapping him in the green room. Watch as James, much like his “127 Hours” character, attempts to cut his own arm off with a spork — until Jon Stewart steps in, of course. [Pop Eater] Keep reading »

More Nazi Photos Surface Of Jesse James

More Nazi photos have surfaced depicting Jesse James, ex-husband of Sandra Bullock and new fiance of “L.A. Ink” star Kat Von D, in compromising positions.

The latest pics show Jesse grinning inside a convertible as he sits next to a friend who is wearing a German Nazi hat and giving the “sieg heil”/”heil Hitler” salute. The other pic — although it’s unclear how it relates to Jesse James — shows a children’s book character, Flat Stanley, dressed as Adolf Hitler with a tiny moustache and swastika armband. Gross. (You can see an older pic of Jesse James doing the “seig heil” salute himself here.) Keep reading »

  • Canna Cola, a new $15 can of soda made from pot, will start selling on Friday at medical marijuana dispensaries around the country.

  • Justin Bieber will appear on a Jan. 30 episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” That guest appearance is about as random as his nail polish line. [OK! Magazine]
  • Spencer Pratt’s new “rap” single, “Ain’t No Thang But A Chicken Wing” [Um, like the Outkast song? -- Editor] leaked today.

“Jersey Shore” Cast Is Moving To Italy

Mamma mia! The cast of “Jersey Shore” is moving to Italy to film season four, presumably so Ronnie can see what the inside of an Italian jail looks like, too. Sources tell TMZ that MTV is already scouting locations in Italy and working to get cast members their visas. Apparently, a dinner with Vinny’s “authentic Italian relatives” is already lined up, too. Get President Obama on the line … this qualifies as an international emergency, right? [TMZ.com] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin’s Got A New Boyfriend

Is there no justice in the world? The entire Frisky editorial staff is single right now, but Bristol Palin has a boyfriend. The nation’s foremost expert on abstinence admitted in a radio show interview yesterday that there’s a new Levi Johnston in her life (although this one is presumably not allowed to put his P in the V). Here is what little we know about Bristol’s new man:

  2. He reportedly works on an oil pipeline.

That’s it. Exciting, no? Keep reading »

Who Is Oprah’s New Sister, Patricia?


It’s like a story from … well …”Oprah.” Yesterday Oprah Winfrey introduced to the world a long lost sister, Patricia, a single mother of two.

At the time, Oprah was nine-years-old, living with her father in Nashville and had no idea her mom was even pregnant.

So, how did Patricia come to find out she’s related to the most famous woman in the world? Keep reading »
