LaToya Jackson Reunites With Michael’s Chimp


This clip from an Animal Planet documentary shows LaToya Jackson reuniting with Michael Jackson‘s former pet, Bubbles. The chimp basically just stared at her from behind the bars of his Florida sanctuary while LaToya got all emotional, making us feel a tad sorry for both parties. Bubbles used to go everywhere with MJ, but in 2003 he got too large and aggressive for the star’s lavish lifestyle and was taken away. Hi Bubbles! Keep reading »

In an interview with “Parade” Miley Cyrus revealed that she’s never missed an episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” The singer said, “There is one show I’m addicted to: RuPaul’s Drag Race. I love me some RuPaul. I love RuPaul’s motto. It goes something like, ‘A real lady is never bitchy, a real lady is sassy.’” [The Advocate]

Which Celeb Couples Waited The Longest Before Getting Married?

When Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart finally tied the knot on June 15, our jaws dropped. The couple has been together for more than eight and a half years, so we were beginning to think they’d never hear wedding bells. Evidently, Harrison’s son Ben thought the same thing. “Those crazy kids went off and eloped!” he said. “I think it is wonderful that they finally made it legit. It is really terrific news.” [People]

We think so, too. And so, after the jump, we look at other famous couples who took their time. Keep reading »

Mel B Wants Everyone To Know How Often She Gets Laid


Ever wondered how Mel B got that bangin’ bod? Well, the secret’s out and now you too can have long, toned legs and a teeny tiny waist. All you have to do, according to the former Spice Girl, is have sex five times per day. In an interview last night, George Lopez asked, “Your fitness secret … is that you fancy a shag—that you have sex five times a day with your husband?” Mel replied, “Well, today was a busy day, so it was just three … Me and my husband [Stephen Belafonte], we’re the same age, he is my best friend and I guess we’re both just perverts with each other.” It’s possible that these two are still in the uber-frisky stage of their relationship—they’ve only been married for three years—but somehow, I doubt it. Five times a day is a lot, and just doesn’t sound plausible. Plus, if you have to tell the public about it on repeat, it makes me think that in reality you’re doing it, like, once a week and want to cover your tracks. What do you guys think—do you believe Mel or does this sound suspect? Keep reading »

The Vampire Craze Goes Musical

I love a good spooky vampire story just as much as the next gal. As a kid I watched “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” religiously. I’m addicted to “True Blood” and was totally down with “Twilight,” until it became weird and cultish. But recently, I’ve started to become a bit wary of the blood-sucking craze. I mean, “The Vampire Diaries” looks craptastic. But now someone has taken the obsession to new heights. A rock musical called “I Kissed A Vampire!” will be making an appearance at the Seattle International Film Festival. It stars Lucas Grabeel and Drew Seeley of of “High School Musical,” plus newcomer Adrian Slade. The flick is about a boy who gets bitten by an exchange student and turns into a vampire. The dude’s fangs pop out every time he gets close to the girl he likes which, if you ask me, sounds a whole lot like “Twilight.” Nonetheless, the girl totally wants his bod and she eventually gets bitten. When the chick starts dressing goth and eating raw meat, she flips and the two decide they have to find a cure. I’m sort of yearning for the old days when vampires were evil and dangerous, not smitten and corny. What about you? [I Kissed A Vampire] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Ridiculously Hard To Date

If you ever met me, you’d probably think I’m a bitch. I wouldn’t argue. I like to yell and complain, and I never hesitate to tell someone if I don’t like them unless I think I can gain something by keeping my mouth shut. I’m volatile and can go off like a firecracker without a moment’s notice. I don’t go out of my way to be nice to people, but if you say something I don’t like, I’ll certainly go out of my way to be nasty to you.

My friends and family are used to it and somehow manage to enjoy my company. [Editor's Note: For the record, we here at The Frisky have never seen Nikki be anything but jovial and totally hilarious.] Once I let someone in, I really let them in. If I like you—or love you—I’ll do almost anything to make you happy or help you out. I’m extremely loyal. I guess, for my friends and family, the good has, over time, outweighed the bad. They are able to forgive the volatility and occasional craziness, so long as it isn’t directed at them. Since I only see my family occasionally and usually just get together with my friends on the weekends, they hardly ever see my bad side.

But dating me is another story. Keep reading »

A Congressman Takes A Swipe At Student


In this video, which is already going viral, North Carolina Congressman Bob Etheridge takes a swipe at a student who asked him if he supports the Obama agenda. The politician must have been having a really bad day, because he got super agitated and yelled “Who are you?” over and over again before grabbing at the camera. Etheridge apologized saying, “I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect.” Wait, did he try to put that kid in a headlock?

Cheat Sheet: Barack Obama’s BP Oil Spill Speech


Last night, Barack Obama gave a 17-minute speech from the Oval Office about the horrific BP oil spill. It seems he is using this tragedy to teach us gas-guzzling Americans a lesson about clean energy, without actually saying exactly what the government plans to do. I know presidential speeches are not always the most riveting, so we don’t blame you if you didn’t watch it. However, this was a pretty important address. So take a look at our cheat sheet, after the jump. Keep reading »

8 Actresses With Diva Reps On Set

Though she seems as sweet as sweet can be, the word on the street is that Lea Michele is a big old diva on the set of “Glee.” Insiders say the actress bosses around makeup artists, snaps at photographers, is diet-obsessed and acts like she’s better than the rest of the cast. She may just be getting into character but, somehow, I doubt it. Looks like all that fame and fortune has gone to her head. [Us Weekly]

Unfortunately, a diva attitude is super common among actresses. Since these not-so-lovely ladies seem to want to feel important, we figured we’d do a slideshow devoted just to them.
