The Starbucks Trenta: Super-Size My Caffeine Intake!

I’m a Starbucks coffee addict, but even I’m wary of Starbucks’ new trenta drink size, serving up a super-sized portion of caffeine. First of all, let’s talk about butchering the Italian language, shall we? “Trenta” means 30 in Italian, but the trenta is actually 31 oz. OK, whatever. The trenta is massively larger than other Starbucks beverages: a tall is 12 oz., a grande is 16 oz., and a venti (which actually means 20 in Italian) is 20 oz. According to AOL, only iced drinks will be available in the trenta size, which means those no whip mocha frappuccinos with peppermint syrup that were making you fat can now make you even fatter. As of today, only 14 warm, mostly Southern states are offering the trenta: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Hawaii, Nevada and Arizona. These 31 oz. monsters will be available nationwide on May 3. If any Frisky readers try the new trenta size, make sure to tell us how it is … once your entire body stops shaking.

Octomom Nadya Suleman Whips Man In A Diaper For Fetish Porn Film, TMZ Claims

Octomom has long rebuffed offers to appear in porn — or so the tabloids claim. Now TMZ is reporting Nadya Suleman recently filmed a kinky fetish porn at her home in which she whips a man wearing a diaper until he has welts on his back. She’s reportedly wearing a black corset and black leggings and “her body is kinda smokin’,” despite popping out 14 rugrats. Wait, she filmed a fetish porn in her home? Who babysat all those kids? Allegedly the video is being shopped for sale, although it is unclear by whom. Octomom has been doggedly pursued recently by porn king Vivid Video, who tried to exploit her financial troubles and the fact her house might go into foreclosure to get her to appear on screen. Recently, Vivid offered Octomom $1 million to appear in a skin flick! If rumors of her fetish video are true, we hope she was paid well. [TMZ] Keep reading »

The 5 Types Of Period Panties

Every woman’s got ‘em: the panties ruined by Nature’s special, beautiful, magical gift to your ladyparts. You might be thrilled that Bingo’s tadpoles didn’t penetrate the love glove, but that still doesn’t mean you aren’t pissed your white, lacy Victoria’s Secret thong looks like a Jackson Pollack painting.

Typically, girls wear sexy underwear at all times because, even if we know no one is going to see them, we just feel better about ourselves when we know we look pretty underneath. But the three to seven days of the month when all we do is cry and eat Cherry Garcia is an exception! Whether they were formerly cute panties sneak attacked by Aunt Flo or nasty knickers you bought just to stain, here are the five types of period panties every woman’s got: Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Idaho Pharmacist Refuses Medication For Woman Who Had Abortion

  • A pharmacist in Nampa, Idaho, refused to fill a prescription for anti-bleeding medication for a woman, telling her she would not give it if it was being used after an abortion. Planned Parenthood of the Greater Northwest said the woman needed Methergine, which is used to stop bleeding after an abortion or childbirth. Idaho passed a so-called “conscience clause” law which allows pharmacists to refuse to dispense medication to patients based on their own beliefs. [KBOI]

Oh, The Things I Could Do With A “Rent-A-Husband” Service

A “rent-a-husband” service in Tblisi, Georgia, called Husband For An Hour, sends men to your house to do chores like fixing leaky faucets and repairing broken windows. You don’t have to have just gone through a breakup to appreciate the beauty of a dude who stays for an hour, takes his $13, and then is out of your hair forever! While we Frisky gals are much more self-sufficient in the “fixing things” department (who else has got their own tool kit?! woot, woot!), we think this service sounds awesome for little old ladies or pregnant women who just can’t do certain housekeeping tasks themselves. However, Husband For An Hour has one little problem: some women are calling up in need of services these handymen don’t provide. “We have to explain to them that our guys are not male prostitutes,” owner Beso Mchedlishvili told the AFP. “They can help with repairing a leaking tap, but their job description says nothing about providing affection.” Hey, dude, don’t blame us ladies for thinking a guy who can fix things with his hands is hella sexy! What would you request from a rent-a-husband service? Remember, you’ve only got an hour! [AFP] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: On Falling Out Of Love

For nearly two years I was with the man I thought I was going to marry, have children with and spend the rest of my life with. I loved him so all-consumingly that I worried about his death. Driving on highways or flying on airplanes, it didn’t matter; I just thought of what risks it posed to him and how terribly in pain I would feel if he were ever to be gone from my life. Even though I felt a bit silly worrying about him, I couldn’t help myself. We used to say we were half of each other. He would say to me that he couldn’t wait to grow old with me. We were intimately close and open with each other in a way I’ve never been before and in a way I know I won’t find easily again.

He broke up with me after New Year’s suddenly and without warning. Now, I marvel at how quickly it’s taken me to fall out of love with him. How very, very odd it is to look inside myself to see if there’s any little bit that still loves him after what he’s done to me. Keep reading »

Shocking! Rush Limbaugh Insensitive Towards Rape Victims

rush limbaugh photo

“[After Saturday's shooting in Arizona, when Sarah Palin and other conservatives were criticized for using at-times violent political rehtoric, a Time magazine reporter] said, well they should have just turned the other cheek and stopped defending themselves, and they would have shut this thing all down. So yeah, just, that’s what they used to tell women who were raped, wasn’t it? Just sit back and enjoy it, put some ice on it, like Clinton said, put some ice on the lip, you asked for it, your dress asked for it, just sit back and enjoy it. Isn’t that how they used to tell raped women to deal with it?”

— Radio host Rush Limbaugh is sensitive as always while talking about the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and subsequent criticisms against politicians like Sarah Palin and shock jocks like him. Seriously, dude, there is never a tasteful occasion to compare oneself to rape victims. Make your point some other way, OK? And don’t forget, everyone, this insensitive comment comes from the same guy who suggested the TSA “grope” the Obama daughters. Ick, ick, ick. [Media Matters For America] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Group Complains Nursing Program Teaches Students About Abortion

  • A Christian legal group has filed a civil rights complaint against a Vanderbilt University nursing program for putting a statement on its application that informs students the program will involve interacting with women who may have just had an abortion and suggesting if they cannot handle that, they should consider applying to a different program. “It is important that you are aware of this aspect of care and give careful consideration to your ability to provide compassionate care to women in these situations,” the application states. “If you feel you cannot provide care to women during this type of event, we encourage you to apply to a different track of the Nurse Residency Program to explore opportunities that may best fit your skills and career goals.” The complaint was filed on behalf of an unnamed Mississippi woman. Two Tennessean law experts said Vanderbilt has not actually done anything wrong. [The Tennessean]

Sarah Palin Lashes Out At Media After Gabrielle Giffords Shooting In Tucson

Sarah Palin has lashed out at critics who say her at-times violence-tinged political rhetoric influenced Jared Lee Loughner, the man who shot 14 people this weekend in Tuscon, Arizona, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “After the shocking tragedy, I listened puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements of those attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event,” Palin said. “President Reagan said we must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions. Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing district used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their first amendment rights at campaign rallies, and not with those who proudly voted in the last election.” Keep reading »
