Today in Maybe, Possibly, Supposedly True News: my fave LGBT news blog, Queerty, reports that gay porn star Dustin Zito is in the cast of “Real World: Back To Las Vegas,” which MTV is currently filming. Hunky Dustin, 24, is allegedly a Lamar University graduate from Rayne, Louisiana (unrelated: the frog capital of the world), and appears on “Fratmen TV,” a gay porn website under the name “Spencer.” Pffft, like any frat could have that many cute guys in it! According to the reality TV forum Vevmo, Bunim/Murray Productions, which films “The Real World,” knows about Zito’s porn-y past and supposedly told him “before the show airs, the site he’s on is supposed to delete most of the content with him.” Keep reading »
“Lake Shore” is Canada’s answer to MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” It’s a new reality show that will follow “eight vibrant and volatile 20-somethings through the streets of Toronto.” But the Canucks upgraded the concept to make it more of a multi-cultural, pan-sexual, guido bonanza where STD testing is free for all. The cast includes Sibel the Turk, Joey the Italian, Anni Mei the Vietnamese, Tommy Hollywood the Czech, Robyn the Jew, Salem the Lebanese (and he’s gay!), Karolina the Pole, and Downtown D the Albanian. And they already hate each other before they’ve even moved in! Oh Canada, how can we ever thank you? [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
Even those of us who proudly call ourselves feminists can admit that sometimes other feminists can be a wee bit extreme. That’s why “Vag Magazine,” a new webisode series about a cabal of young feminist hipsters who buy out fashion magazine Gemma with proceeds of their Etsy shop and replace it with uber-P.C. mag Vag, had me peeing my pants laughing. (Pants, of course, being what I wear, as skirts and dresses are tools of the patriarchy.) Staff members Sylvie, Fennell, Bethany, Heavy Flo, and Reba have big dreams for Vag, but Meghan, the lone holdover from Gemma, is increasingly terrified at how little sense these ladies make.
I watched five episodes of “Vag Magazine” — you can watch a couple more after the jump — and I knew I just had to talk to its creators, Upright Citizens Brigade alums/comediennes Caitlin Tegart and Leila Cohan-Miccio. After the jump, read my chat with Caitlin and Leila about third-wave feminists, their hilarious cast of improv stars-to-be, the MarieClaire.com piece about “fatties,” and what it’s like for ladies in comedy. Oh, I’m sorry, womyn in comedy. Keep reading »

It might be a Tuesday in November, but it’s getting hot in herrrre! No, my heat pipe isn’t broken; it’s the heap of fireballs from this week’s new releases. Kid Cudi and 30 Seconds To Mars are outta this world; Cee-Lo doo-wops the way to Awesome Town; The Greenhornes give themselves four stars; Imelda May gets her rockabilly on; and the Bad Books throw the book at us. Plus, did you check out the new track by Michael Jackson? Yes, you read that right—dude supposedly recorded an eerily accurate jam before he passed called “Breaking News,” which is the single off his soon-to-be-released record, Michael. Get a sneak listen here. And check out the rest of this week’s rad offerings after the jump.

Ever pick up an old cookbook and marvel at how unappetizing all the recipes are? Aspic? Cold cuts and canned fruit? Maraschino cherries and boiled hot dogs? The Flickr group “Gee, That Food Looks Terrible” aims to catalog some of the truly disgusting food from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Like this broiled ham and lima bean casserole, which has the pallid hue of a seasick sailor. Thanks, but we’ll pass. After the jump, three more delightfully unpleasant vintage recipe images.

Most professionals have paid their dues while advancing their career, and oftentimes this includes internships. I’ve been an intern several times, including here at The Frisky, and while I took some internships more seriously than others, I don’t think I’ve done anything as egregious as the interns featured on Oxygen’s “Running Russell Simmons.” This new reality show, which premieres tonight at 11 p.m., focuses on the women who keep mogul Russell Simmons on track. For the most part, it seems Russell would be nowhere without his competent staff, but his interns are completely clueless. Peep the video above in which Sagen gives rapper T.I. a “Basic Instinct”-style crotch-shot, then check out two more videos after the jump, especially the one in which the interns get stuffed in Russell’s bathroom as he’s about to get it on with a hot babe.
