Roller derby girls are the coolest. So you know that when a derby girl Pinky La Pain (real name: Sarah Hamrick) from the Greensboro Roller Derby League was getting hitched, it was going to be amazing.
With the help of local photographers Frayed Edge Photography, Pinky’s team, The Battleground Betties, and their arch nemeses/friends The Mad Dollies suited up for a derby-themed bridal suit. It’s feminine and tough in the coolest of ways. I especially love the juxtaposition of the French manicured nails over the beat-up helmet. Click through to see a bunch more of Pinky’s pics!

Hopefully our office building manager doesn’t read The Frisky, because we blatantly broke his “no conducting photo shoots on the smoking deck” rule by, uh, conducting a photo shoot on the smoking deck today and these pics serve as hard evidence.

One of the perks of being a celebrity is that no matter what you want to do and where you want to go, there is someone willing to drive you in the privacy of an air-conditioned car, without any pesky commoners invading your personal, famous bubble. That is why it is kind of awesome when a celebrity is spotted riding public transportation. How normal! For instance, Jay-Z hopped the R train from his digs in Manhattan’s posh Tribeca ‘hood to Brooklyn this weekend for his last concert at the new Barclays Center. (Certain beyotches named Amelia were in the audience. Madly jealous. Sore subject.) Of course Jay was accompanied by plainclothes cops and his own security team. It’s not like he rides the subway like us normal folks. [MissInfo.tv]
In addition to being better for the environment, public transportation is often more efficient and quicker than fighting traffic. Plus, it’s just kind cool to see celebs “out in the wild,” clutching filthy subway poles and giving the stink eye to rude multi-seat hoggers with the rest of us. Here are a bunch more celebs spotted on public transpo!
I grew up with parents who were not particularly pro-television. My dad even attached a scarf to the top of our TV and would insist on pulling it down to cover the screen during commercials (he also muted the sound). But one show they were always in favor of me watching was “Sesame Street.” I grew up with Big Bird, Telly, Grover, Oscar, the Count, and all of their human friends and have many amazing memories to show for it. I also believe the show helped instill a love of learning, a sense of compassion, and a genuine curiosity about the world around me. Given that the show has been referenced in the same breath as cutting funding for PBS by Mitt Romney — just to be clear, the show actually receives a very small portion of its funding from PBS, and PBS only takes up .014 percent of the federal budget — I thought it would be a good time to review the show’s significance. Because if anything, these empty threats to “kill Big Bird” should serve as a reminder of why “Sesame Street” is so important.
We did you a favor and watched the Hulk Hogan sex tape so you don’t have to. It is indeed as cringeworthy as it sounds. We’re all contemplating gouging our eyes out. Here are worst things about it: first, that Hulk Hogan is naked. But also, that the alleged woman in the tape is Heather Clem (the ex-wife of his best friend Bubba the Love Sponge who appears to be in the house while all this is happening WHAT?), that Brooke Hogan’s song is the ring tone on his phone and that it rings while he’s in the middle of bizness, that he tells a story about his son’s girlfriend propositioning him for sex, that he keeps referring to himself as a pig because he just ate so much and last but not least, he says “you’re awesome” as he walks out the door. That’s all you really need to know. Never again shall we speak of it.
Final thoughts on the sex tape: why couldn’t it have been Ryan Lochte instead? We would have rather watched him having one of his one-night-stands, screaming out “Jeah!” during orgasm. It hardly ever works that way though, does it?
