Take that, Katy Perry and your whipped-cream-spewing/fireworks-exploding boobs. Two can play this game! Ke$ha, the greatest artist of our generation, has tapped into the “Jersey Shore” spirit with her new song, “Sleazy.” It’s the cliché “Your Money Doesn’t Impress Me, Dude,” girl power-ish tune that every female singer or singing group does. But because this is Ke$ha we’re talking about, the hook is “get sleazy … get sleazy … get sleazy.” I’m going to go bop my head to this ditty and fret about what it means for society if “Jersey Shore” is seed for the zeitgeist.

Four women, who were between the ages of 13 and 17 when they were filmed flashing their breasts by “Girls Gone Wild” goons, have asked to pursue their lawsuit without being named. The women, who are now in their 20s, said when they appeared in the “Girls Gone Wild” videos as teens in Panama City, Florida, they were ridiculed and forced to leave their schools. Their lawyers battled in court recently, arguing that as the women sue Joe Francis for exploitation, there is no need for their identities to be revealed. “Their names” — in addition to their breasts — “are going to be everywhere,” attorney Rachael Pontikes argued. Alas, an unsympathetic FL judge rejected their request and now the women have filed an appeal.
But this debate isn’t just about boobs, exploitation and poor judgment. It’s also about journalism! Keep reading »

In a major departure from her previous programming — some of the filthiest programs on television — Oprah has said no one on her new channel will be using the word “bitches.” I just hope the Oprah Winfrey Network cleans up their act and bans “hoes” and “sluts,” too, because you know those Oprah gals get mouths on them when they’re fired up! Maybe OWN could start a company-wide “swear jar” and be fined a quarter whenever someone says a naughty word. Then Oprah could collect all the money and buy herself something nice for once!

“It seemed like something someone would say when they’re really drunk at a party with their other hateful friends, but may be not good to write down and put it out for people to look at. … We have this great episode coming up where Molly cancels her subscription to Marie Claire.”
— “Mike and Molly” creator Mark Roberts responds to MarieClaire.com blogger Maura Kelly’s post called “Should Fatties Get A Room?” where she said of the show’s plus-sized characters, “I’d be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of at kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them do anything.” I think Molly should start reading The Frisky instead!

The way to a woman’s heart is with chocolate, but the way to anyone‘s heart is with a custom-made chocolate bar. Choose your bar flavor, such as white chocolate or dark. Then pick up to five toppings to be blended in and mark your bar as truly yours. Are cranberries your fancy, or would you prefer goji berries? How about sea salt or ginger? Crushed candy cane, candy corn, or gummy bears? Chocri offers over 10 billion possible combinations, and you can even customize your chocolate bar with a message like “I love you” or “happy birthday.” If that set-up doesn’t just melt your heart, then nothing will.
“After the first girl I slept with … a few days later … I was, like, crying. It was the end of all the intimacy I shared with my wife. It was like a new thing. It was like … putting that away.”
— David Arquette is an idiot for continually going back on Howard Stern’s radio show to discuss his separation from wife Courteney Cox — bad, bad David! — but at least today he said something touching. When asked if Courteney is dating her “Cougar Town” costar Brian Van Holt, Arquette answered diplomatically, “Any guy would be blessed to be with her.” Aww, that’s about as sweet as it gets on “Howard Stern.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
I know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But the 10th month of the year is another time for reflection on an issue that doesn’t get quite the attention it deserves: Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Frisky has been re-posting some of our past content by our contributor Judy McGuire, a domestic abuse survivor, but we were pleased to see it’s being addressed on a national level, as well.
Today at the White House, Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama made remarks about violence against women, which I’ve transcribed a bit after the jump: Keep reading »
