A nude photo of Elizabeth Taylor at age 24 has been released by a “private collector.” Yes, even Liz Taylor had a naked pic! Elizabeth reportedly had her friend Roddy McDowall take the photograph — in which she’s crouched naked on a shaggy carpet — as an engagement gift for her third husband Michael Todd. After Hubby #3 died, a heartbroken Liz reportedly gave the naked pic to her assistant/makeup artist, Penny Taylor. Somehow it found its way to “private collector” (of what, nude pics?) Jim Shaudis, who released the photo after Liz died on March 23. While it’s not exactly classy to bust out nude pics, I guess it’s somewhat more acceptable that the collector waited until her death. And let’s be honest: doesn’t girlfriend look damn fine? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Hello there, dear Frisky readers! As you’re reading this, I’m currently moving into my new single-girl apartment and likely getting yelled at by my father about how I have too many clothes and why I packed a box of rocks. (They’re books, I swear!) Alas, this means I’m not able to write up our beloved Today’s Lady News column. But never fear: You can 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 »
We know it’s, like, a law that beer and fast food commercials use offensive, usually sexist, stereotypes about chicks and dudes … but online dating sites? This “Femme-o-matic” commercial for Belgian dating site Vind een Lief is confusing, but the basic premise seems to be that online dating is just like ordering up a hot blonde from a gumball machine. Because us ladies all so interchangeable, you know, and men don’t care about anything more than our looks! With all the blonde women lying around in kiddie pools and washing cars in short shorts, you’d think Vind een Lief would want people to believe it’s an escort service. But hey, maybe something got lost in translation. (Imagery NSFW, although naughty language is subtitled.) [Copyranter] Keep reading »
“[Reporter asks Kim Cattrall about a tip Page Six received that Kim had a bikini wax earlier in the day] That’s a stupid question. You’re a smart girl. How could you want to write that? … [Being a gossip reporter isn't] a respectable job. Why don’t you work at — what’s that news agency — Roybers? Reuters. Yeah, sorry, I’ve been drinking. What about writing for a blog? Then you can write about what you want [or] care about. … You didn’t see my film. Why are you even here?”
— Kim Cattrall is freaking hilarious when she’s knocked back a few. Also, good career tip on working for a blog. You totally do get to write about whatever you want, including posting funny drunk quotes from “Sex & The City” actresses. Congratulations, Kim, you’re now an honorary member of the daytime drunks club.
After the jump, Kim took a moment from dishing out career advice to talk about older roles for women in Hollywood: Keep reading »
If you’re going to rape a 16-year-old prostitute, I recommend being a highly paid professional athlete. Last May, Lawrence Taylor, a former football player for the New York Giants, was arrested for hiring a 15-year-old girl who was prostituted out by a pimp at a Holiday Inn in New York. The 51-year-old was charged with third-degree rape because of the victim’s age, which includes charges of sex with a minor.
But oh look! Last week Lawrence Taylor accepted a slap-on-the-wrist plea deal. Keep reading »

A 14-year-old girl in Bangladesh, who was raped by her cousin, was sentenced to 101 lashes for “adultery” and died. Hena Akhter from rural Shariatpur was the fifth child of a day laborer and his wife. An older male cousin — who was forced to marry his wife because he had raped her 15 years ago — returned from working abroad a year ago and began harassing Hena on her way to and from school. Her parents complained to village elders and the cousin was told to pay $1,000. However, because the cousin was the son of Hena’s father’s older brother, Hena’s father was asked to let the matter drop. Then Hena was walking back from an outdoor toilet one winter night when her cousin allegedly grabbed her, gagged her with a cloth and raped her. The cousin’s wife discovered Hena being sexually assaulted and beat her as well.
But no, they didn’t call it “rape.” They called it “adultery.” Keep reading »
