This is the Palin Conundrum: ignore them and hope they go away, or pay attention to the insipid things they do in order to mock them, thus contributing to their tick-bite hold on the public psyche.
The good news is that in Bristol Palin’s upcoming Lifetime reality show “Life’s A Tripp,” girlfriend may just encourage you to stop paying attention to her out of sheer apathy. The attempts at plot drama — paparazzi are taking photos! some man confronts Bristol in a bar about her mom! — are the kinds of “drama” that would have ended up on the “Real Housewives” cutting room floor. The best part is when Bristol tells her sister “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” which is usually the feeling of someone who does a reality show. So grab yourself a double espresso and check out the series trailer. At least Tripp is cute? See an extended clip from the show, featuring mom Sarah, after the jump! [MyLifetime] Keep reading »
Summer is the perfect time to kick back with a good book and no, you don’t have to read Crime And Punishment. I prefer a good graphic novel and I’m in luck: But I Really Wanted To Be An Anthropologist by French illustrator Margaux Motin was just published in English. Like me, you’ll lust after Margaux’s adorable French daughter, her hot husband, and enviably chic wardrobe. (At least, that’s how she draws it!) And if you like just-us-girls honesty here on The Frisky, you’ll love Margaux’s share-everything-no-matter-how-embarrassing tone. Grab a box of macaroons and a copy of Anthropologist for the cheapest trip to Paris you’ll ever take. [$19.01, Amazon.com]
You remember Chescaleigh from the “Shit White Girls Say To Black Girls” videos? Of course you do. She’s back, this time with a new video about street harassment in which she plays both the loser with no game “hssssss”-ing her on the street and the woman minding-her-own business who has to deal with his catcalls. “Here’s what I don’t understand,” she says. “Are these guys really so desperate, horny, and insecure about their penis size that they are willing to hit on anything? And I mean anything, because they don’t really seem to discriminate.” Yes, Chescaleigh, they really are. Clearly I need to tell you about the time I was catcalled last summer while wearing a fucking eyepatch. [YouTube]
No, no, no, Lindsay Lohan is not going to be in a porn — her new co-star on a flick called “The Canyons” – has a long history in pornography. James Deen appeared in hundreds of adult films and as our own Julie put it, it’s all because of his “nerd appeal.” He and LiLo are expected to star in the thriller about twentysomethings on a “quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood,” written by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis. Should be fun.
Now let’s get to know James Deen … in the most safe-for-work way we possibly can. Keep reading »
You may have noticed here at The Frisky we pull a lot of stuff out of our ass. 5 Things You Can Lie To Your Therapist About! 7 Ways To Wear Roadkill This Season! 13 Ways To Orgasm Using Pinterest! But a serious subject calls for Serious Journalism. And for some Serious Journalism this Father’s Day, I lazily emailed all the men I know who have young daughters and asked them for advice on raising healthy, happy girls as a modern-day dad.
For this first installment of Dads Raising Daughters, I turned to Tony, the father of three girls under the age of nine; Adam, the father of two daughters under the age of four; Jim, the father of a nine-year-old girl; Joe (AKA Frisky commenter _JSW_), the father of two girls under the age of twelve; and Jesse, the father of three girls under eight. Over the next several days, I’ll be sharing with you some of their fab (and adorable) advice.
First up, how to teach your girl she is smart and beautiful. Keep reading »
