When I decided to revamp my life according to the principles of Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl in order to write my memoir Falling For Me, I not only committed to learning to cook, decorate, put myself together and tackle a whole bunch of new activities (ceramics, anyone?) but I also agreed to embrace at least a few of her ideas for meeting men.

It was the toot heard ’round the television: Nancy Grace let one rip on “Dancing With The Stars” and she’s been trying to live down the mockery ever since. It is not all public humiliation, though Nancy has attracted the attention of a little known fetish website of “flatulophiliacs,” aka “fart fanatics.” We had no idea fart fetishists existed. Jo Merlone, marketing director for the web site Clips4Sale.com, penned a letter to “Dancing With The Stars” requesting the rights for three seconds of footage of Nancy’s famed fart. “In case you weren’t aware,” Jo Merlone implored, “this is a very popular niche online and we know just how many of Nancy’s fans would love to relieve the moment in the privacy of their own homes via our web site. Passing gas is as natural as breathing and our members are waiting with baited breath.” Oh my. Don’t keep the fart fetishists waiting, ABC — that would just be cruel. [BuzzFeed]
Flatulophilia isn’t the only fetish that caught us off guard — after the jump, here’s 10 more crazy sexual practices that came as a surprise.
Celebs—they’re just like us! Despite their good looks and mega bank accounts, they have a rough time on the dating trail too. Take, for example, miss Tori Spelling.
“Back in my 20s when I was on ’90210,’ I was at a club one night and bumped into a guy that I hadn’t seen since high school. At the time, Donna Martin was making crappy boy choices, but I was determined to find The One! … [We went] to the chicest, most expensive and trendiest new restaurant/lounge in Beverly Hills … He announced, slamming down his menu, ‘I’m not very hungry. What do you say we just get drinks?’ … Four rum and Cokes and two hours of a one-way conversation later, I was way too drunk and bored … I was feeling sick. Actually, the room started spinning at this point … I excused myself from the riveting conversation and bolted for the bathroom … I pushed open the door, smiled with victory, and walked right into—the kitchen. The whole kitchen staff looked up at me. I put my hands up to cover my mouth, but I knew it was too late. A waiter rushed over with a massive copper saucepan where I proceeded to vomit the four rum and cokes and the Cliff Bar I had had at 11 a.m. into it. It was Donna Martin prom night all over again.” [Us Magazine]
Wow. That does sound truly horrendous. And also an amazing story. Click on for more celebs on their most terrible dates.
As you may have surmised from the title of this post, our beloved Kate is leaving us today. (She’s off to bring her particular brand of genius to another lucky website!) I know, we’re sad too. Or really “sadz,” as Kate would say. How do we even begin to say goodbye to our pop culturista extraordinaire? I suppose we should start by thanking her for all she’s brought to the Frisky as a team member and a friend. Please join us in bidding adieu to the lovely K8 (that’s how she signs her name sometimes). After the jump, the things we’ll miss about her the most.

He will be just like Richard Gere in “Pretty Woman,” I thought. He will be tall, handsome, dreadfully rich, with salt and pepper hair, and an insatiable desire to buy me shoes. He’ll probably be a complete gentleman. Have a reservation at some super swank restaurant. He’ll think I’m captivating over champagne and oysters. He’ll love that I’m the stereotypical starving artist. By the end of the night he’ll be so head-over-heels that he’ll offer to pay off my student loans and take me to Paris. Maybe after a month he’ll want to give me a head-spinningly generous allowance and buy me an apartment in the Village. You know, just to keep things easy and comfortable for me so I can have more time to go on auditions. And of course, he doesn’t even expect me to have sex with him.
This, of course, is what I pictured my sugar-baby misadventure to be like.

Teen bride Courtney Stodden, who single-handedly keeps the frosted lipstick industry afloat, supposedly set up that beach romp photo shoot to prove to the world that her assets — i.e. her globe-like breasts — are real. But my eyes were immediately drawn to another area of her body — those abs. While I suppose there is a teeeeeeny tiny chance that six-pack is the result of going daily super sexy sensual crunching exercises, they look spray-tanned on to me. Give me a hose and I will prove it! And when I’m done with her, I’ll take down these 20 other celebrities who got a little overzealous with the spray tanner.
So what if she only has one leg? This creative lady didn’t let a missing limb prevent her from putting together a kick ass Halloween costume. She has done the “fragile” (pronounced FRA – GEEL – LAY) lamp from “A Christmas Story” proud. No more complaining that it’s too hard to find a costume. Get to work, people! [The Daily What]
It was Saturday in the late afternoon and I was in the middle of ridding my apartment of dog hair when I heard my cell ringing over the hum of the vacuum. My iPhone screen indicated it was my mom calling. Ever since I successfully taught her how to text message a year and a half ago, the majority of our telecommunication has existed in written form, her messages nearly always signed “Love Mom” as if I wouldn’t be sure. I knew her actually calling me meant something was up.
“Hey, Mom,” I said, bringing the vacuum to a stop.
“Hi, hon,” my mom said. “Listen, I just wanted to let you know not to worry, but it looks like I’m about to be arrested.”

We’re baccccck! We took a few days off “What Are We Wearing” to focus on relaunching The Frisky on our new blogging platform, but now we are back in biz and lookin’ fine. Or, at least I think we look fine. Anyway, click on to see what we’re wearing today! And tell us: what have you got on?
One of my favorite things about traveling to a foreign country is discovering the local cuisine. Yes, of course I mean going to fun restaurants — from fancy, upscale places to out of the way dives — but I also like to hit up the nearest convenience store and ogle their selection of Doritos. (Truth be told, I was almost as excited about the array of Doritos being sold at the snack shop outside the Mayan ruins in Tulum as I was about the actual scenery inside.) Did you know that Doritos have been around since 1964 and there have been over 100 varieties sold all over the world? I found all this out last night, as I read about the news that the founder of Doritos, Arch West, had died and was going to be buried with his iconic chips. One story that came across my newsfeed: 102 Doritos Flavors From Around The World. Despite my travels, there were so many I had no idea about, including a few that whet my appetite – Atomic Chile Limon? Yes please! — but way more that made my stomach heave. Here are the 16 flavors of Doritos that excited and repulsed me at the same time. [Now That's Nifty]
