Kidnapping — or publicity stunt? Tareq Salahi of Bravo’s now-cancelled “The Real Housewives of D.C.” claims his wife Michaele Salahi, one-half of the White House party-crashing duo, has been abducted. TMZ reports that Michaele Salahi supposedly left for a hair appointment yesterday, but never made it there and never returned. He claims he got a phone call from his wife from an unfamiliar phone number late last night and she told him she was headed to her mother’s house; when Tareq called Michaele’s mother, she said they had not spoken. Now he is afraid Michaele Salahi has been kidnapped and contacted the police. Police reportedly told him that Michaele already contacted them and said she refuses to go home to Tareq because of “family problems.” Keep reading »
“['500 Days Of Summer' was] actually very misunderstood. I can’t tell you how many guys, and girls, are like, ‘You did him wrong!’ What, she’s a bitch because she didn’t want to date that guy? So? Are we bitches because we have our own opinions? If that makes me a bitch, or that makes women bitches, then maybe we’re all bitches.”
—Zooey Deschanel comes to the defense of manic pixie dreamgirls everywhere who got a bad reputation from the way her flick “500 Days Of Summer” ended. I definitely don’t understand why anyone would believe Summer was a “bitch” just because she fell in love with someone else. Anyway, between this comment to New York magazine and the angry letter Zooey wrote to Vogue magazine as a 17-year-old, I think I’ve found a new feminist in Hollywood! [New York] Keep reading »
I purposefully did not watch CNN’s Tea Party/Republican debate on Tuesday night because I knew I’d spend the whole time screaming at the TV. It was the right choice. (Like moi, you can read the transcript here.) Texas Governor Rick Perry wasted no time saying he made a “mistake” by requiring adolescent girls in Texas to be vaccinated against strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. And then Rep. Michele Bachmann chimed in to … well, lie on national television by smearing Plan B, which is the morning-after pill, as the “morning-after abortion pill.” You know, implying that it is the abortion pill, i.e. kills babies:

Last week, we became enamored with Nancy Upton, a Dallas woman in the #1 spot for American Apparel‘s plus-size model contest. The company asked bootylicious girls ages 18+ to send in photos of themselves, which they posted on their website so customers could vote on who deserved a modeling contract. Instead of a traditional modeling pic, the zaftig Nancy Upton submitted “fat girl” pics of herself bathing in ranch dressing, squirting chocolate syrup down the gullet, and posed with an apple in her mouth like a pig on a spit.
In short, it was amazing. No one could have been more thrilled than us when Nancy Upton won.
But it seems like not everyone was so happy about Nancy’s victory — namely, American Apparel corporate headquarters. We get a lot of douchey emails here at The Frisky, but this one takes the cake. After the jump, read American Apparel creative director Iris Alonzo’s nasty email (sent to us last night) about Nancy Upton, the kickass lady who won the company’s plus-size model contest fair and square. That is, until the company decided to award the prize to other contestants… Keep reading »
