Why Gay Men Don’t Get Fat

Geek Girls Unite
We're totally craving Leslie Simon's book! Read More »

We would read Simon Doonan’s grocery list if he published it. Fortunately the Barney’s creative director writes much, much more compelling reading! His new book is Gay Men Don’t Get Fat, a diet guide spoof of Why French Women Don’t Get Fat, that dippy book that suggested we all eat leek soup (and nothing else). Simon Doonan suggests America’s obesity problem is tied to all the macho male chefs cutting big slabs of steak meat. So how are the gays losing weight? By only eating “gay food” — sushi and macarons, of course. That’s the gay diet? Sign us up. [$15.49, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

You know that part in “There’s Something About Mary” where Matt Dillon’s character says he wants to “slow things down, read more books, see more movies”? I have that same thought a lot, usually when guilty pleasures have been hogging up my available brainspace. Where does all the time go? Will I ever finish that pile of books next to my bed? Why do I watch so many “Chelsea Lately” reruns instead? 

I don’t have the answers to these questions. But I do have a bunch of great suggestions of blogs and podcasts to check out to eke a little more culture into your life to balance all that “Jersey Shore” viewing. No, the half-an-episode the gang spent sight-seeing around Italy doesn’t count. Keep reading »

Our picks for the best of the year in pop culture, style, sex, and more! Read More »

One of The Frisky’s favorite posts this summer was when we we asked readers to tell us their favorite books. We were blown away by the diverse and wonderful reads that have made you laugh, cry, think, and get very little sleep, which you have been so kind to share with us. As 2011 rounds to a close, we asked you to tell us your favorite book that you read this year — and boy, did you deliver. Click through for all the books you loved in 2011 and the rest of us will be reading in 2012!

The Frisky Staff’s Favorite Books Of 2011

The Best Of 2011!
Our picks for the best of the year in pop culture, style, sex, and more! Read More »

It might seem like all we read around here is Tumblrs about Ryan Gosling. That’s only the partial truth: most of us are pretty huge bookworms. The Frisky staff is constantly lending our most loved books, swapping recommendations, and just in general being big-ass nerds. We’re not the kinds of blog that keeps you up-to-date on all the best new books that were published in 2011. But we can keep you in the loop about the best books we loved to pieces in 2011 and we think you will love them, too.

Drumroll, please ….

In this clip from “The Today Show,” Ann Curry discusses favorite books with Bill Clinton and Mindy Kaling, which is, yes, kind of a strange pair. You can tell Mindy is a little freaked out by the set up, and Ann is kind of a stone cold beyotch to Mindy, dissing her while she flirts mercilessly with Bill Clinton. Also, Bill Clinton totally picks all these brown nose-y smart dude books while Mindy picks the fun books you’d actually want to read. Still, it’s really cute when Mindy tells Ann that she wishes she’d been able to get a peek at Bill’s list before she gave her own.
