Mary-Kate Olsen blasted her “Full House” childhood in a new interview with Marie Claire, saying she and twin sister Ashley Olsen were “little performance monkeys.” MK, who has scarcely talked to the press since she was publicly connected to the death of her friend Heath Ledger in 2007, told the magazine, “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone … I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all.” Apparently, the feeling is mutual. Her sister Ashley also told Marie Claire, “I look at Britney and I’m surprised I didn’t end up like her.” (Sorry, Brit.)
Quite sad to think that all those cheesy made-for-VHS movies made them billionaires, but it hasn’t made them happy.

Ann Taylor knows what sells clothes: thin. Yesterday afternoon, Jezebel noticed that an item on AnnTaylor.com was originally depicted by a skinny model in a tank top, but three seconds later, the page re-boots and the skinny model has magically dropped 20 lbs. around her midsection. Some might say the image was airbrushed beyond looking like a proportional human being. But what a bunch of whiners! Seriously, how could that fat cow sell a Chiffon Trim Tank looking that huge? Next you’re going to tell me something crazy like we should have models who are actually the size of the average American woman. [Jezebel.com and AnnTaylor.com] Keep reading »
Breasts are good for lots of things, like feeding newborns and painting exquisite abstract artwork. A Russian artist named Victoria excels at the latter, dipping her jugglies on a palette of Dick Blick paint and smearing her paint-covered nipples on a canvas. Um, doesn’t breast-painting hurt? Maybe she believes she has to suffer for her art. I’m no Isabella Stewart Gardner, but Victoria’s breast-painting is actually quite good. You can watch the artiste and her large
brushes breasts at work here and judge for yourself.

Do you know what is terrible for teenagers to read about? Homosexuality. They might get ideas! It’s a good thing Glenn Beck’s group, The 9.12 Project, (as in, after 9/11) is on the case. The 9.12 Project has pressured a New Jersey public library into considering removing all copies of Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology, a young adult book about gay and lesbian teens, from the shelves.

To some peeps, showing up in The New York Times‘ prestigious wedding announcements is the be-all and end-all. How else will anybody who’s anybody know you’re to wed a fancy-pants Harvard Ph.D. who’s a direct descendant of Muffy von Buffington, IV? (Or, you know, a Frisky blogger like our girl Wendy.)
It’s hard to say whether WeddingCredential.com, a new search engine which exclusively searches the most recent 3,910 NYT wedding announcements for key phrases, is enabling this show-off behavior or mocking it.
Who really cares how many times Harvard popped up (465) or Goldman Sachs (65)? Some of us aren’t so fancy (or smart … or rich). After the jump, let’s find out if among these well-educated captains of industry, there’s anyone a little bit strange like us. Keep reading »

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend came home from hanging out with his male cousin with a startling report: the cousin had an ugly, yellowing bruise on his upper arm. The cousin also needed to buy a new cell phone because his had been smashed. We noticed his Facebook status had been updated over the weekend to say that he’d made his recent ex-girlfriend cry.
“What happened?!” I gasped. My boyfriend shrugged.
“What, you didn’t ask?” I sputtered. These two are as close as brothers. They’ll be best men at each other’s weddings. But he shrugged again and responded, “I didn’t want to be nosy.” Keep reading »
