Newsflash: Having A Sexy Halloween Costume Doesn’t Mean I’m An Anti-Feminist

Newsflash: Having A Sexy Halloween Costume Doesn't Mean I'm Anti-Feminist

This year, when the ladies of The Frisky decided to show off our rad Halloween costumes from Yandy.com, online purveyor of ridiculously sexified Halloween costumes, we were met with mostly supportive, entertained viewers. Mostly…

One woman send us a comment, which has since been deleted, about how she’s “disappointed” that the women behind a feminist website would choose to wear such “sexual” costumes. But, hey, NEWSFLASH lady… what we choose to wear for Halloween, a holiday where we can be whoever we want to be and embrace another persona, has nothing to do with the way we feel about feminism. In fact, choosing to embrace our sexuality and femininity without shame is exactly the type of body confidence we hope to encourage, and YOU, my friend, are slut-shaming. Keep reading »

Worried that you’ll show up to tonight’s costume party wearing the same “Frozen” princess costume as every other woman who wanted to wear something “pretty” for Halloween this year? You should be. Our friends over at The Huffington Post have done us a solid by creating a map of the most Googled Halloween costumes from each state, which will save us all the embarrassment of showing up to a spooky shindig and finding a room filled with other Elsas, Batmans and bananas.

“Friends” Surveyed Their Studio Audience About Whether They Thought Monica Geller Was A Skank

"Friends" Surveyed Their Studio Audience About Whether They Thought Monica Geller Was A Skank

As a huge “Friends” fan who owns all of the seasons on DVD, trivia games and Central Perk memorabilia that’s ever been produced, I love how I’m still learning fun little tidbits about the show 20 years after it first premiered. Lisa Kudrow, who played my kindred spirit Phoebe Buffay on the show, guest starred on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night and told the audience how “Friends” was considered “racy” back in the day. Who knew?

Apparently, before the pilot episode, NBC was so concerned about having Courteney Cox’s character Monica mention having a one night stand, that they surveyed the show’s live audience about it. So did they think Monica was a super skank for doing the deed on day one? Watch the video after the jump to find out! Keep reading »

Remember the three dudes in stilettos who perfectly mastered Beyoncé’s choreography earlier this year, thus making all of us feel like the most uncoordinated dancers in the world? Well, they’re back to remind us what that feels like.

Yanis Marshall and his high-heeled partners, Arnaud Boursain and Mehdi Mamine, have decided to induce us all with a big dose of nostalgia and show off their moves, this time to The Pussycat Dolls’ 2005 hit “Buttons.” The video starts off with the whole dance studio jamming to the song before focusing on the trio’s freakishly good moves that even the best, most expensive strippers would envy.

Betty White “Lives On Hot Dogs And Vodka,” Swears Like A Sailor

Betty White is probably the coolest 92-year-old to ever walk the earth, and a new interview in Closer Magazine proves it.

Not only is the spunky prankster still working in showbiz after seven decades of entertaining, but those close to her credit her good health and sharp wit two of my favorite things.

“She lives on hot dogs and vodka,” her “Hot In Cleveland” co-star, Wendie Malick, told the mag. “It’s her secret weapon. I don’t think it’s for everyone — don’t try it at home!” (Note: Unless you’re me, in which case, it’s just another Friday night.) Keep reading »
