Police Subpoena “Teen Mom” Amber For Punching Her Baby Daddy

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 »

Sally Jessy Raphael’s Signature Red Glasses Came With Her Pap Smear

“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 »

Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Us Her Twang At The CMA Awards


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 »

Christina Aguilera Is A “Good Girl” In “Burlesque”

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 »

Old-School Wednesday: N*Sync Says “Bye Bye Bye”

Before he was starring in “The Social Network” — and even before he was bringing sexy (and fedoras) back — Justin Timberlake used to be in a little boy band with a few other friends. Perhaps you remember them? N*Sync ruled the charts, and our hearts, with their poppy dance numbers, sweet ballads and perfectly choreographed dance numbers. In this video for the band’s 2000 hit song, “Bye Bye Bye,” Justin and the boys lash out against former manager (and creepy dude) Lou Perlman—the song and video a metaphor for no longer being under the thumb of their controlling ex-manager. Deep! [YouTube] Keep reading »

“Hellcats” Cram Session: Are Cheerleaders Hazed?

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 »

Cats, Inspired By Kittens — The Book!

This “Jane Eyre” Looks Badass


Man, I’m glad I didn’t waste my time in high school reading Jane Eyre because I’m pretty sure the book would have ruined what seems to be an awesome movie! Set to be released in March 2011, the flick based on Charlotte Brontë’s book will star the kick-ass lead from Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland,” Mia Wasikowska and Dame Judi Dench. Best of all, director Cary Fukanaga, who read 24 adaptations of the book (dayum!), feels it isn’t some prissy love story, but a decidedly dark, gothic romance. Suh-weet! Now if only we could get some zombies in there. Oh yeah, and one more thing, I said it once and I’ll say it again, a decade later: “Suck it Mrs. Buckwell, reading is for peeps who don’t have movie theaters!” [The Daily What] Keep reading »
