Sometimes you’re like, “Geez, I really wish I could enjoy a healthy, invigorating steam while watching ‘Rizzoli & Isles’ in my living room.”  You are always saying that and you know it! Too bad you — and “Rizzoli & Isles” — weren’t around in 1983, when some monster took it upon himself to invent a… READ MORE »

Of all the international film festivals, we imagine that the Venice International Film Festival is the tastiest. That’s because it’s centered in Venice, which is home to some of the best pizza and gelato on the planet. Not that we could imagine attendees like Frieda Pinto and Carey Mulligan partaking, per se. No, no, they’re… READ MORE »

“Maybe The Frisky can do a piece on where to find an affordable black jumpsuit. Love the one in your day-to-night guide but it’s a bit out of my price range!” — Brittany
Never fear, Brittany! You asked for it, and you got it: black jumpers at every price point. No matter whether… READ MORE »

I consider Lil Bub meeting Grumpy Cat as akin as to when Churchill met with Roosevelt. The two greatest cat powers on the continent, combining forces for cuteness. Watch as Bub and Grumps warily address one another at the second annual Internet Cat Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is my couch space, Bub says, tongue out,… READ MORE »

Jessica is out on vacation this week, and that’s left me to cover the amazingly cute panda cub beat. I don’t mind though, because these twin panda cubs, born at the Atlanta Zoo, exist somewhere on the scale between mind-blowingly cute and breathtakingly adorable. The little buggers are about a month old, and weigh just… READ MORE »

Alabama State Senator Bill Holtzclaw, under pressure from the Tea Party, is trying to remove The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison’s harrowing Nobel Prize-winning book about a young African-American girl, from schools because it contains scenes of sexual assault, which conservative Tea Party members argue is “child pornography.” They want to ban the book from schools because… READ MORE »

I’m totally fascinated by the way people talk. Accents, vocabulary and emphasis varies so much, depending on where in the country you live. I lived in the Midwest (land of “pop,” not “soda”) until I was 9, which is probably why my speaking accent is generally pretty flat and indistinct. But I also happened to… READ MORE »

For the past several months I’ve been more dissatisfied with the way I look than usual. Sorry to say, but I’ve never been particularly good at practicing radical self-love and acceptance, preferring instead to vacillate between mild self-criticism to severe self-loathing. Of late, that’s been of the physical nature — my body issues are well-documented,… READ MORE »

You know, I wasn’t sure how I felt about Adam Levine’s fiance, Behati Prinsloo. She did seem to come on the scene all of a sudden. But she’s totally won me — and likely thousands of other women — over, by tweeting this hilarious pic of her man in nothing more than underwear and sunglasses. READ MORE »

Last thing we’ll say on the subject, we swear: Parenting blogs are filled with articles tackling how to talk to your daughters about Miley Cyrus. But how do we talk to our sons about Robin Thicke?
