New Year, New You at The Frisky has focused on ways to improve our outward appearance by dressing more adventurously, dragging our doughy carcass to spin class, and upping the fabulosity quotient. It’s also explored how to grow in relationships and at work through standing up for ourselves, being more productive, and making the first move. But what about our inner world? After we’ve found the perfect shade of red lipstick, cleaned out our closets, and told a passive-aggressive friend to chill out, what comes next? Well, I propose in 2012 that we try to expose ourselves to newer genres of literature we’ve never experienced before. It’s fine to read the blockbuster novel du jour that make the bestseller list — i.e. The Da Vinci Code, The Pillars of the EarthThe Hunger Games, etc. — but this year, why not try something new?

“I really try not to read anything [online], and then occasionally I will be completely self-destructive, once every six months, and it’s really horrible. Sometimes people write the most ghastly things, and it makes you feel like crap … A while ago I read some stuff, and it was tons of people all saying I wasn’t beautiful enough to be an actress. And I thought, well, that’s not what you’re meant to be. I’ve never aspired to play a character that was beautiful.”

– I want to hate Carey Mulligan because I’m madly jealous she filmed “Shame” with my boyfriend Michael Fassbender, which, of course, involved lots of physical proximity to the most handsome man alive. But then she opens her mouth and says stuff like this and I can’t help but love her. There is nothing wrong with playing a character whose sole purpose is to be beautiful. But I’m impressed with Carey that she’s so young (26) and already striving for something deeper. [Guardian UK]

  • Oh, damn: Kris Humphries says Kim Kardashian planned her own wedding proposal and was not surprised by how he popped the question whatsoever. Kris proposed to Kim during the middle of the day (for good lighting) in a room in her mansion while her show was filming (so her hair and makeup were done). He said he would have preferred to propose in Minnesota privately but that idea was shot down by Kim and show producers. [RadarOnline]
  • Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner are dunzo after two years together. Sources say that Brody wanted a “career” but Avril wanted him to trail around and support hers. [US Weekly
  • The Situation is being sued by a clothing company called Serious Pimp for not adhering to a $25,000 deal to wear their undoubtedly classy tee shirts on “Jersey Shore” and promote them on Twitter. [NYmag.com The Cut]
  • Elisabetta Canalis — aka ex-girlfriend of George Clooney — is now dating Steve-O from “Jackass.” If you’re wondering about the downgrade, Steve-O is apparently now “sensitive” and “introspective” since becoming sober. Whatever works for you, Elisabetta. [Evil Beet Gossip] Keep reading »

I’ve never been a woman who thought about my figure and how to flatter it. From puberty onward, I luckily had a slim frame and an hourglass figure that made dressing easy-peasy. I could literally wear — and eat — anything that I wanted.

I was, I realize, that bitch you hate.

Then, around age 23, that all changed. I suppose it was my metabolism slowing down: I began to gain weight for the first time in my life and it all seemed to be concentrated on my butt.  Jeans, skirts and dresses stopped fitting around my belly, hips and ass. I swear you won’t believe me, but I remember sitting in an office chair one day and realizing my butt had gotten cushier! Twenty-three and 24 were hard ages for me to begin with because I struggled with a nasty bout of depression; my sudden, prepubescent-ish awkwardness with my body changing became a nasty icing on the cake.  Keep reading »

“I find it really interesting that people think that, like, in seasons three and four, she’s become unlikable because she’s become more independent. Everybody liked Betty when she was, like, in a living hell in season one and two, and now they hate her. … I think as an audience member you can empathize with her struggling to find happiness — I think it’s an ongoing process. … I think it’s funny that it carries over into my life, my actual life, when [show creator] Matt [Weiner] writes a storyline that Betty’s unlikable, all of a sudden, everybody hates me. I hope she gets a little more well received.”

– Well, well, well. January Jones is more self-aware than I expected. I assumed, like a lot of people, that she herself was as oblivious and filled with denial as her “Mad Men” character, Betty Draper Francis, whom everybody loves to hate. I have news for you, January: I don’t hate you. Keep reading »
