I don’t usually applaud Maxim magazine covers. But I adore Cobie Smulders, aka Robin from “How I Met Your Mother,” and have always wished she would start getting magazine covers, so I will take it. Also, she looks stunning. And in exciting “HIMYM” news, next week we supposedly get more of the Robin Sparkles backstory. Yeeee! Keep reading »
It’s hard to forget the episode of “Teen Mom” where Amber Portwood kicks out her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, for taking their daughter and threatening to call child services. As he leaves, they get into a big fight. During the scene, Amber gets in his face cursing. She hits him repeatedly, and calls him things like a “fat piece of s**t.” As he retreats down the stairs, she kicks him. The scene was shocking when it aired. And now the police are reviewing the unedited footage. Keep reading »
“I couldn’t see the teleprompter. So I saw an ad that said, ‘We do a Pap smear and give you red glasses.’ They said were going to trade me up [for a more expensive pair]. I said: ‘You’re not going to trade me up. I don’t have that kind of money.’ It’s all they had for $19.95.”
—Former talk show host Sally Jessy Raphael explains where she got her signature, over-sized, red glasses on “Oprah.” I’m sorry. Come again? A medical office that sells glasses and gives pap smears? Did that kind of place exist in the ’80s? If so, how come Sally didn’t cover that as a topic on her show? [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

I’m not sure what I was expecting, exactly, but last night’s CMA Awards were kinda snoozy. Miranda Lambert and Brad Paisley won lots of awards. Taylor Swift was her usual “aww shucks” self. And the camera kept pointing to Keith Urban with Nicole Kidman at his side. But there were two performances that stood out. First, Gwyneth Paltrow put down the goop and picked up a guitar to perform “Country Strong,” the title track from her upcoming movie of the same name. And she was surprisingly good—interesting, since we all know that singing in a movie often nets a star an Oscar. We’ll think of this as a warm-up for her appearance on “Glee,” when she’ll do a mash-up of “Singin’ in the Rain” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” Keep reading »

Ack! My head is exploding! Here’s a clip of “Burlesque” star Christina Aguilera singing “I Am A Good Girl” about how she gets her Chanel dress, her YSL shoes, Dior purse and other goodies from being, duh, “a good girl.” Ugh. Burlesque performers aren’t whores, you know. (Nothing against whores, I’m just sayin’ that Dita Von Teese probably would not appreciate her line of work being compared to a prostitute and/or kept woman.) Please, please, puh-leeze don’t butcher burlesque for me, Xtina! [YouTube] Keep reading »
Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Wednesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.
For the past few weeks, it’s seemed like Marti has been welcomed with open arms into the Hellcats crew. But now that Savannah has discovered that Marti and Dan lost their virginity to each other back in the day, all of a sudden Marti is back to being an outsider.
Which raises the question—when is a newbie officially taken into the fold of a cheerleading squad? Keep reading »
