Dear Darling George Boedecker,
I know you think you’re really super important as the founder of Crocs, the footwear of choice of obese Midwesterners and chef Mario Batali, but just because you managed to create a plastic shoe empire doesn’t mean you get to pretend our love wasn’t real.
According to police reports, when you were pulled over in Boulder, Colorado, for driving under the influence you told cops that it was girlfriend Taylor Swift who’d been behind the wheel. “My girlfriend is a really fucking famous singer,” you told the police, before asking one of the officers if he “knew who Taylor Swift was.” Officer Patrick Vest then asked you if you knew where Swift was, to which you replied, “she was in Nashville,” and noted that she was “batshit crazy.” Keep reading »
Rivulets of mascara are streaming from big, false lashed-eyes everywhere: yesterday legendary Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown died in New York City at age 90.
It is not an exaggeration to say that Brown’s influence as a feminist and sex-positive editor of a major women’s magazine has left an indelible imprint on our popular culture, including on ladyblogs like The Frisky. (Yes, even though some of those Cosmo sex tips are dopey.) She may not have always gotten the respect she deserved in her lifetime — and there will no doubt be Cosmo detractors upon her death — but I would like to share with you some facts from this incredible woman’s life. In fact, she was declared a living legend by the New York Landmarks Conservancy!
Helen Gurley Brown is an editor, writer and woman whom I truly look up to for her ball-busting ways … here’s why.

Update, 10:25: There is no “West Wing” movie. Josh Malina is just an asshole who is toying with my heart. The cast reunited to film a PSA, possibly for Funny Or Die. So disappointed. [SPI]
Missing C.J. Cregg in your life? Me, too. Good to know then, that over the weekend, “West Wing” actor Josh Malina tweeted a pic of what appears to be Allison Janney (C.J.) and Bradley Whitford (Josh) working on a scene with the caption, “I can’t say what super-secret set I’m on, but it rhymes with Bwest Bwing Bmovie.” Another pic showed Richard Schiff (Toby) hustling around all-Toby-ishly and another pic appears to be Whitford getting a hug with the caption “This time it’s for real, people.”
I can sum up my reaction in one word: Yiiiiiiiiiii! I hope Malina does not get in trouble for his super-secret tweets. Creator Aaron Sorkin seems like he gives hard spankings. [Img.ly]

Check out the trailer above. Sing it, Whitney. Keep reading »
Oh, happy day. The sneak peak of this week’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” includes a trip to the local Piggly Wiggly for some extreme couponing, an activity which June admits is “an addiction” and “better than sex.” I really need to try this couponing business, huh?
For now, I’ll have to live vicariously through Alana, June and the girls as they stock up the “buggy” with chocolate milk and mustard. Not surprisingly, June’s “quick math” skills are on point when it comes to saving money for her family. Alana’s math is not too shabby either. It might be better than mine. And Pumpkin? Well, she falls backwards out of the shopping cart. Of course she does. They should just cancel “Extreme Couponing” because no other couponers will be able to live up to the Boo Boos. More, please! We can hardly wait for Wednesday. [People]
Too cute! Wonder Womanatee and her superhero manatee pals are the brainchild of artist Joel Micah Harris, who is selling his quirky crime-fighting sea creatures on T-shirts and stickers. God bless you, Tumblr, for the random shit that comes across my dashboard. [TheAtlantic.Tumblr.com]
