If you thought pole-dancing died when Miley Cyrus got on the pole, you were wrong. The true death knell is Pole Fitness For Jesus, a pole-dancing class for good Christian ladies in the sleepy town of Old Spring Town, Texas. The women in the Pole Fitness For Jesus class strut in high heels and body roll to uplifting Christian music — not because they’re trying to be sexy, mind you, but because they are honoring their body as a temple. “God gives us these bodies and they are suppose to be our temples and we are suppose to take care of them and that’s what we are doing,” explained Crystal Dean, a pole-dancing instructor, who rightfully points out that judging others for pole dancing is not very Christian. In fact, the few students in the free classes, which meets two Sundays a month, attest they feel a “spiritual connection” on the pole. Hey, whatever makes you feel closer to God — as long as you’re not hurting anybody — is fine with this Christian. Just ask yourself: what would Mary Magdalene do? [KTRK] Keep reading »

Quickies: Is Tiger Woods Dating A 22-Year-Old?

  • Tiger Woods is reportedly dating a 22-year-old blonde named Alyse Lahti Johnston. She’s the daughter of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jeff Lahti and step-daughter of a big whig at IMG, the agency that represents the horny golfer. Alyse Johnston was busted for a DUI last year, but when she’s not posing for mug shots, she likes to hang out with Tiger on his yacht and attends Northwood University in West Palm Beach, Florida. For half the year, Alyse’s family lives in Windermere, the same exclusive community where Woods and his ex-wife Elin Nordegren once lived. Good luck with that, kids! [Daily Mail UK, RadarOnline]

Rachel Maddow Gets Her Very Own Country Song

 

I love Rachel Maddow as much as the next bi-curious liberal with a cable subscription. But still, I can’t compete with this guy. Country musician Marc Black penned “I Love You Rachel Maddow,” an ode to his favorite MSNBC host, her hair, and the way she stands up to Pat Buchanan. Hopefully Maddow is flattered and doesn’t think Marc is a stalker. But even if he is … hey, it’s pretty catchy! [YouTube via After Ellen] Keep reading »

Awful first dates (and second dates … and third dates …) are The Frisky’s bread and butter. But every so often the goddesses smile upon us and we’re blessed with a first date to call your mom about instead of your therapist.

Not to brag or anything, but I had a kickass first date this weekend. We went to the Bronx Zoo together and he didn’t run for the hills when I tried to climb into the red panda cage and give it a hug. Then he asked if I wanted to get dinner, so we took the subway all the way downtown to my favorite Venezuelan restaurant. We got some Starbucks, sat in a park talking, and finally saw a movie together before heading our separate ways. I didn’t want it to end!

OK, now I’m just bragging. But my point is that I had the best time. And because I had a two-hour train ride home at the end of the night, I had a lot of time to think about just what it is that makes a great first date. Keep reading »

Earlier this week, a bitchtastic UCLA undergrad named Alexandra Wallace took to YouTube to complain about her Asian classmates. Because clearly the most sensitive time to do that is days after Japan has been destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami! But still, Alexandra griped about “hordes of Asians” UCLA lets in every year who don’t have “American manners” in the library.

Surprise, surprise, Alexandra Wallace is now leaving UCLA. Keep reading »

Quickies: Kate Winslet Is Dating John Mayer?!

  • Kate Winslet’s “steamy new hookup” is allegedly notorious ladies man John Mayer. Really, Kate? I like John’s music, but you are sooo much better than Jessica Simpson’s sloppy seconds! Oh well. Maybe these two will hit it off. Kate can show him her merkin and John can blab about it to Playboy. [Celebitchy]
