Former Frisky columnist Judy McGuire has exchanged her first love (dispensing hilarious dating advice) for her second (rock ‘n’ roll) with her new book, The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll Lists. But as the title promises, there’s plenty of salaciousness to go around. McGuire got plenty of music’s greatest — and greatest fans — to dish the dirt; Ozzy Osbourne dishes health tips, Coco (Ice-T’s wife) shares her advice for keeping your rapper happy, and Willie Nelson riffs on his area of expertise (smoking pot, of course). You’ll read it from cover to cover and then leave it somewhere easily accessible, as it’s always good for a laugh or inciting conversation. I mean, when don’t you need Snoop Dogg’s deepest thoughts on sex and relationships? [$16.20, Amazon]
Last month, we invited fans of “Pretty Little Liars” to enter for a chance to win an interview with show star Tyler Blackburn. Well, the winners have been chosen! Let’s see who won and what questions they had for the long-haired, hunky actor. Above, meet Shannon, and after the jump, see what Alanna had to say… Keep reading »
“Storytelling” is an exhibit that went up in Dublin last month. Design duo Harmless Creatures recreated The Scarecrow (made of hay), Tin Man (made from hand-shredded cards) and the Cowardly Lion (made of VHS tape) from “The Wizard of Oz.” Each costume took over 40 hours to create and were “assembled like a suit of armor, protection against a world where everyone else has the brains, the heart or the courage,”says the Harmless Creatures website. God, I love this. It’s so haunting and poignant kind of like the story. After the jump is a video that accompanied the exhibition. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

These “Girls”-themed paper dolls come with all the characters’ necessary accoutrements — like Shoshanna’s abortion snacks, Hannah’s diary and Jessa’s pregnancy test. See one more after the jump and the rest at the link! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
A spirit animal is supposed to be someone who encapsulates your essence, your soul, your very spirit. When I saw Lulu the Plus Size Pole Dancer, I knew I had found mine. Even though she’s a bigger girl, Lulu took the stage of “America’s Got Talent” in front of millions of viewers and swung herself around the pole oozing confidence. (And I’ve taken a pole dancing class: those moves are haaaard.) The judges did not seem too impressed, so I’m not quite sure she’s got a lot of talent. But Lulu sure has hell has gumption. [E!

Regular Frisky readers know that I have a weird obsession with watching cooking shows. I don’t know why. I don’t cook. No one in my family cooks. I like to eat, but I think most people in the world feel the same way. I think chefs are hot and sometimes I watch cooking shows to look for potential dates, but still, that doesn’t entirely explain my obsession. Put me in front of a cooking show, any cooking show, and you’ll find me transfixed.
Cooking show season is officially in full swing, which means I’ve cleared my schedule. At the moment I’m watching “Chopped,” “Master Chef,” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” I’ve also been recommended “Around The World In 80 Plates” and “Food Network Star.” How many cooking shows can I watch at once without being considered crazy? I guess I’ll find out. The most epically trashy of the cooking show premieres was Season 10 of “Hell’s Kitchen” with my favorite chef sex object, Gordon Ramsay. Someday I plan to write “Hell’s Kitchen” erotic fan fiction with Gordon as the dom. It would just be too easy. Anyway, I’m getting off topic. Here are the important things I learned from the episode (spoilers ahead!)… Keep reading »
