Mazel tov to Bai Yun, a mommy panda bear at the San Diego Zoo who gave birth to a four-ounce panda cub on Wednesday morning. The baby’s gender will be unknown until the mama lets zoologists near her cub, who was the size of a stick of butter when born.
Bai Yun has given birth to a cub every two years since 1999. That is rare for endangered panda bears, since the lady bears are only in heat and ready for some sweet lovin’ for about 48 hours a year. With only 1,600 panda bears left on earth to begin with, a newborn baby panda is a big deal. (Especially if you’re obsessed.) Keep reading »
You know those articles where a woman writes that something that’s generally considered to be shady is really friggin’ fantastic? Yeah, us Frisky ladies tend to be skeptical. Maybe being a mail-order bride really did turn out well for that woman featured in Marie Claire last month! But don’t kid yourself that you’re not an exception to the rule.
We’ve got similar “meh” feelings for the way Terri Graham, a member of More.com’s reader community, confronted her anorexia, bulimia and body dysmorphic disorder: competing in “countless” beauty pageants and strutting across the stage in a swimsuit and heels caused Graham to stop hating her body.

But I hear you, women who are ashamed of your feet. Fear not, for I am one of you. [New York Times] Keep reading »
You don’t have to be Jennifer Aniston to think the four women who Krazy-Glued a cheater’s penis to his stomach were way harsh and beyond psycho.

Even though she’s a mom, Victoria Beckham‘s taut and toned body in the new Armani ad released today is utterly devoid of wrinkles and jiggly bits. Gisele’s pregnant belly was flattened in the London Fog ads. Beth Ditto got fattened up on the cover of Love. Kim Kardashian appeared slimmed and lightened in Complex. Jeez Louise, the Photoshop-wielding warlocks should win big fat trophies for all their Great Moments In Airbrushing humdingers this year.
Or maybe airbrushed ads should get warning labels, says one British politician. Jo Swinson, a Liberal Democrat in the U.K., said that airbrushing should be banned on advertising intended for viewing by children younger than 16 and all other airbrushed images should carry labels that say what’s been altered.
It’s an absolutely brilliant idea. But unfortunately, it will never happen. Keep reading »
