If you’re a friend of mine and have tried to make plans with me the last few weeks, you’ve likely failed, because i have been very busy planning my infiltration into the upper echelon of Scientology. And by “planning” I mean reading Going Clear by Lawrence Wright and Beyond Belief by Jenna Miscavige Hill, two new fascinating and in-depth books about the notorious cult/religion, and having extremely exciting dreams in which I am tasked by the authorities to help take down the religion. Both books are so fantastic, I couldn’t pick just one to recommend as a Crave, so I’m doing both, because I am the David Miscavige of The Frisky, only much taller. Keep reading »

Jessica Blair

Sometimes when I’m reading stories on LitErotica.com, I feel like I can tell when a man has written a story and given himself a woman’s pseudonym. Some stories are just … different. They sound overly porn-y, involving words like pounding and ramming, and clearly what some horny dude thinks a woman’s experience of sex might be like. I think to myself, I see through your pseudonym, “Ashleigh St. Pierre!”

But Brits, of course, are a little more subtle. That must be why no one figured out that the romance novelist “Jessica Blair” was actually an 89-year-old grandpa and military veteran named Bill Spence. Keep reading »

So, by now you’ve probably seen the travesty that is this updated Anne of Green Gables cover (that’s it above, no joke). Apparently Anne as an awkward, freckled redhead is out; Anne as a hot, blonde, busty bombshell with bedroom eyes is in. If you’ve read the books, you know this ridiculous makeover actually renders most of the important plot lines completely irrelevant (we can’t really see Anne renouncing God for giving her perfect skin and wavy, golden hair), so we thought we’d help out the publishers by proposing a few updated story ideas for their updated heroine… Keep reading »

New Bridget Jones Novel Announced

Classic chick-lit fans mark your diaries for November — that’s when the now-official third installment of the Bridget Jones novels will be released. Author Helen Fielding introduced the world to the single 30-something back in 1996 with Bridget Jones’s Diary and followed up the hit book loosely based on Pride and Prejudice with a 1999 sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, both of which were turned into hit films staring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth. Now almost 15 years later, fans can catch up with Bridget. She is apparently up to new things, according to the author, who says, “My life has moved on and Bridget’s will move on, too.” Read more…

Long before Lindsay took up unauthorized residence, the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard played host and home to a multitude of eminent eccentrics and bold-faced names (F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe, Dennis Hopper, Jim Morrison, Hunter S. Thompson, Heath Ledger, Led Zeppelin, Britney Spears, Howard Hughes, and beyond) who all had one thing in common: they loved to party, and hard. In fact, the founder of Columbia Pictures once said, “If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.” It’s no wonder, then, that when we think of the infamous hotel, the last thing that comes to mind is sleep. (Well, unless it’s forever sleep, as in the tragic case of John Belushi, who met his untimely end in the Chateau’s Bungalow #3.) Fashion photographer Jork Weismann’s new portrait book, aptly titled “Asleep at the Chateau,” pays quiet homage to that legendary place of celebrity refuge and relapse by showing a number of familiar faces in repose within its walls. Among them are Bret Easton Ellis, Orlando Bloom, Juergen Teller, Usher, Eva Longoria, and Patti Smith (shown). Check out a couple more after the jump, and pick up Asleep at the Chateau via Artbook.
