It’s T-minus two weeks until the Oscars, and we here in The Frisky office are already getting our Oscar pool organized—which means that you probably are, too. Luckily, the Academy is pretty predictable. And since we want you to win your co-workers’ money, we are looking at each of the major awards and dissecting some theories about who generally wins. Last week, we showed you that to win the Best Actress award, it’s best to be a card-carrying America’s Sweetheart getting her first nomination for a meaty role. To win Best Actor, it’s exactly the opposite—the Academy tends to vote on consistency in this category. In other words, the Oscar generally goes to the dude who has the most Best Actor and Best Supporting nominations under his belt already.
Don’t believe us? Here are just a few examples: Keep reading »
If you watched “The Bachelor” special last night, “The Women Tell All,” you definitely saw former contestant Rozlyn Papa — the one who got kicked off for having an “inappropriate relationship” with a producer — come on and attack host Chris Harrison. In fact, she even went so far as to imply that he’s a cheater! When Harrison, a married father of two, said that the producer with whom Rozlyn was allegedly involved was a dear friend, Rozlyn shot back: “That’s news to him, especially when you were hitting on his wife in New Zealand. He thought that was crazy.” Harrison cooly replied: “I won’t dignify that with a response. I hope you will become a better person through this.” (Clip above!)
After the jump, see what Harrison is telling “Entertainment Weekly” why he didn’t immediately reply to her accusation.

Tonight, it’s “The Women Tell All” episode, which I think we can all expect will get dramatic — Rozlyn WILL be there. See you in 10! Keep reading »

Gia certainly seemed sad when she was sent home from “The Bachelor” last week, Jake-less. But could some of her hesitancy to open up to him have been because … she has a boyfriend? A Long Island restaurant owner named Domenick Pierno is claiming that he was dating Gia the entire time she was on the show. “We had been dating four or five years off and on — but mostly on — when she decided to go on the show. She had done some modeling here and there, and from there she was hoping other things could come about,” he told the New York Post. “I didn’t see her during filming, but as soon as she got back, we were together. We still see each other. We’re still dating … I saw her a couple of days ago. I went to her apartment in Manhattan.”
Gia claims this dude is totally tripping. “We have not been an item for three years,” she said. “Since then, we have been acquaintances.”
Who knows whom to believe? But I do like that Gia uses the term “an item.” Someone has been studying their gossip column lingo! [NY Post] Keep reading »
In case you haven’t heard it yet, Vampire Weekend’s new album, Contra
, is super duper dope. “Giving Up The Gun” is one of the songs I’ve been listening to on repeat for the past month, and now I’m just as obsessed with the new video. As if the tennis theme weren’t cool enough—we’ve also got Jake Gyllenhaal rocking a sweatband, the RZA as a teleporting line judge, and Lil Jon as a demonic coach. Oh, and fireballs! Good stuff.

backlash: it was inevitable. We here at The Frisky are firmly
in the for-cripes-sakes-they’re-just-love-songs-chill-out-everybody camp and we always will be. But as we’ve already seen, more than a few bloggers
are angrily typing away
, cataloging how Taylor Swift is (and I quote) “a feminist’s worst nightmare.” I’m sorry, but do you people remember
Britney Spears? Keep reading »
Ask — nay, demand — and Lorne Michaels will listen, sort of. For the last month or so, fans of Betty White have been clamoring for the “Golden Girl” to host “Saturday Night Live,” and according to Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorne Michaels is game. However, he’s apparently not sure that White, who is 88 years old, will be able to carry the show on her own, so he’s supposedly assembling a roster of funny ladies to host together. Molly Shannon is on board, and Michaels is going after “SNL” alum like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as well. The idea of all these women on “Saturday Night Live” totally excites me, but I totally think White could pull off the hosting gig on her own. I mean, would Michaels not allow Clint Eastwood — who is turning 80 this year — to host on his own? Betty White, while up there in years, is a professional, and a hilarious one at that — I say she should get the coveted hosting gig all for herself, unless she feels like sharing. [EW] Keep reading »
“I had to make a tough choice whether to stay or leave because of work. I’d be faced with that decision again, but I would challenge myself to put love first … The opportunity would be so exciting. It’d be very difficult for me because I’ve never met a guy and been attracted right away. Usually I have several interactions and become attracted to their mind instead of the first impression. I might not be any good because I’d be drilling everyone.”
— Ali Fedotowsky, the woman who prematurely left “The Bachelor,” on the buzz about her being the next “Bachelorette.” But what if Jake were to ask her back before that happened?
“He was hurt by me leaving and I think he is with someone right now and happy, so I don’t know that I can imagine him coming back. But if he did, I would think about it. I really care for him. I don’t know how quickly we could move forward.”
