Here’s some hard evidence that fat people are discriminated against: A nail salon charged $5 extra on a customer’s bill for a manicure, pedicure and eyebrow arch at a nail salon because she’s obese. Michelle Fonville was paying her bill at Natural Nails in DeKalb County, Georgia, when she noticed an extra charge. The nail salon owner, Kim Tran, told her it was because she’s overweight and she was charging extra in case Fonville caused damage to the salon’s chairs she’d been sitting on. Bitch, please! Even if Fonville was too overweight for the salon chairs, you can’t just tack an extra charge on someone’s bill arbitrarily. (Otherwise we’d all be getting weird charges tacked onto our bills.) This incident sounds more like a case of “we’re charging you more to dissuade people like you not from coming back” to me.
Talk about a niche dating site. TheUglyBugBall.co.uk launched on Monday as the first online dating site only for ugly people in the U.K. It claims to “deal in reality,” is free to join and filled with 1,500 unattractive people who want to, um, bump uglies. First of all, that’s the best name for a website ever. Second of all, founder Howard James’ quote is the funniest ever: “It’s a sad fact that up to half of the UK is made up of ugly people yet amazingly nobody has ever thought of providing a dating service for them.” The rules are strict: attractive singletons are not allowed!
But isn’t a dating site for “the aesthetically challenged” kind of … wrong? Keep reading »
So Amelia reported on vattooing, temporary tattoos for a completely bare lady flower, about a month ago, but now we’ve got video. I’m relieved that I’m not the only one here at The Frisky who has considered this kind of body adornment. Although, I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who has considered getting a real tattoo of a cat’s eyes and nose right above my vag. OK, I’ve probably shared too much, and it’s time to watch the video.

Distressing, but not altogether shocking news from the Britney Spears’ rumor mill; according to a source who spoke with Heat magazine, Brit’s boyfriend Jason Trawick is getting fed up with her poor hygiene. Spears goes days without showering and changing her clothes — not to mention her weave — and as a result, the source says, “She hates washing her hair, so sometimes it can smell downright sour.”
Sigh. Britney, my sister, I feel you on the not -showering-and-washing-your-hair thing. But allow me to introduce you to my new best friend in my quest to skip washing my locks: dry shampoo. Keep reading »
This is pretty terrible: The Republican Party’s website for a state Senate race in Minnesota published this YouTube video of “hot” GOP women like Sarah Palin set to the song “She’s A Lady” and then “ugly” liberal women like Hillary Clinton set to “Who Let The Dogs Out?” Keep reading »
I committed a cardinal beauty sin yesterday, guys. You see, contrary to what the beautifully made-up artist at MAC claimed, the Lip Conditioner SPF 15 doesn’t protect and moisturize the lips adequately. I knew my lips were really chapped, yet I still applied my lipstick, only to look as if I were trying to cover up a cold sore. It wasn’t a pretty look and I knew my lips deserved better treatment and protection. Keep reading »
