Wendy Davis Filibuster
Go, Wendy, Go!

Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is currently in the process of filibustering SB5, the devastating anti-abortion bill that would decimate women’s access to reproductive healthcare. To stop the bill, Davis will need to speak continuously for 13 hours in order to run down the clock and prevent a vote. Texas law prevents her from drinking, eating, sitting down, or taking a bathroom break for the entirety of her filibuster. She’s already been at it for over 5 hours, and while her voice is a bit hoarse, she shows no signs of backing down. So far she has read heartbreaking personal stories from hundreds of Texas woman, and respectfully and eloquently responded to some painfully condescending questions from her Republican colleagues (by the way, thanks for helping to run down the clock, guys!). Check out the livestream of her heroic stand for women’s health above. Send Wendy a Tweet of support @WendyDavisTexas, tag Tweets with #standwithwendy, or contact her through her website to tell her to please, please, please run for president. [RH Reality Check]

Pug Party: 10 Random, Adorable Facts About Pugs

My neighbors have an 8-week-old pug puppy that is perhaps the cutest creature who has ever graced this Earth. Right now its head is a bit too big for its body, so as it toddles around the yard it usually tips over, and then just starts chewing on whatever is in the immediate vicinity of where its mouth landed. Oh, and its name is BELUSHI. Seriously, I can’t even handle how cute this dog is. Whenever I see it come out in the yard I just stare at it moaning like Tina from “Bob’s Burgers” until my boyfriend is like, “Seriously, you have to stop doing that.” I wouldn’t be surprised if this dog takes out a restraining order against me at some point.

My love for Belushi made me want to write something pug-related, and I was reading up about these little dogs I thought, Hey, why not a list of fun pug facts?! Because sometimes I like to pretend I write for Highlights magazine instead of The Frisky. Ready for a pug fact party? Here we go! Keep reading »

When Nick and I moved, we sold our TV, and for the past couple months we’ve been toying with the idea of living a TV-free life. It was nice for awhile, but soon we realized we had turned into that special breed of hipster who says “I don’t watch TV,” but spends, like, six hours a day watching Netflix TV shows on their laptop. We love TV. So sue us. Last week, we decided to stop squinting at our laptops and bought a new TV. Since we didn’t have a table to put it on in the living room, we were like, “Hey, let’s put it in the bedroom for now! We can snuggle and have movie nights!” And yeah, that didn’t really work out.

Teen sorta sensation Aaron Carter, perhaps best known as little brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is now 25 and touring the country on his “After Party” tour. On a stop in Boston, Carter claims he was jumped and beaten by four men, and he posted a couple Instagram photos of himself looking busted to prove it. What sparked the altercation? According to Carter, it was a classic boy band turf war. Seriously. Keep reading »

Texas Abortion

If you don’t live in Texas, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of House Bill 60 (HB60) and Senate Bill 5 (SB5), a pair of rabid anti-abortion measures that aim to effectively outlaw abortion across the entire state. I’ve followed the HB60/SB5 saga through the articles and Twitter updates of Texas pro-choice activists (and Frisky contributors!) Andrea Grimes, Dan Solomon, and Jessica Luther. These three are part of a group of hundreds of citizen activists who have set up camp at the State Capitol to demand access to reproductive healthcare, and they’ve been working their asses off to stop these bills.

Oops: United Airlines Forgets To Bring Toilet Paper On A 10-Hour Flight

As any air traveler knows, there are few places more disgusting than an airplane bathroom a few hours into a long flight. But an airplane bathroom with no toilet paper on a 10-hour flight? That’s even worse. Passengers on a recent United Airlines (of course) flight from San Francisco to London got to experience that exact little surprise firsthand when the crew forgot to stock up on TP before departing. Faced with the choice of making an unscheduled stop to replenish their supply or arriving in London on time, the flight crew decided to fly on. Passengers were provided with a stack of cocktail napkins to use instead. “If I’m paying for a ticket, that should include the price of toilet paper, I would think,” one passenger told ABC News. Yes, you would think, but I guess when it comes to United, which is ranked dead last in customer satisfaction, you shouldn’t take anything for granted. Might want to pop a roll of TP into your carry-on next time, just in case. [Huffington Post]

Rihanna’s bold fashion choices have earned her many “That’s A Lot Of Look” posts. She always looks beautiful because she’s Rihanna, but that zebra print boardshort phase didn’t do her any favors. On a recent tour stop in the UK, though, RiRi finally brought out her fashion A-game, sauntering down the streets of London and Manchester in killer outfits that are still totally, uniquely Rihanna. Click through to check out 6 of our favorite recent RiRi looks!

10 Best: Selena Gomez

This morning I read that Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift went out to dinner together at Chili’s, a revelation which instantly made me like both of them so much more. Just the idea of two hugely famous multimillionaires splitting a sizzling bacon ranch quesadilla in a corner booth and gossiping about Justin Bieber fills me with delight. I’m not sure if it’s residual Chili’s adoration or what, but I’m also really digging this boho outfit Selena was spotted in recently. Is it a little over the top? Sure. Is the sight of her wearing leather boots in LA making my feet sweat profusely? Definitely. It’s a lot of look, but I think she’s pulling it off. Selena, next time I hit up Chili’s, I will raise my El Niño® Margarita to your fearless fashion sense. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

A lot of the people I know who are into pho — which, for the uninitiated, is a Vietnamese noodle soup — are, like, really into pho. They eat it four or five times a week, are constantly on the hunt for the best hole-in-the-wall pho restaurant, and love nothing more than correcting people who pronounce it wrong. I mean, I love me some pho, but I have a hard time keeping up with them. For my pho-obsessed friends, the new pho-flavored cocktail dreamed up by a Philadelphia bartender might be the holy grail of alcoholic beverages. It’s made with gin or vodka, lime juice, a blend of pho broth seasonings (including charred ginger, onions, and star anise), basil, mint, and cilantro, and garnished with pickled bean sprouts and Sriracha sauce. For non-pho fanatics, though, I’m guessing this cocktail will be something of an acquired taste. Which camp are you in? [Neatorama]
