Bed Intruder Antoine Dodson On “Lopez Tonight”

Antoine Dodson, the first news-to-viral-video-to-auto-tuned-single celebrity, was a guest on George Lopez’s show the other night. Good thing “he be funny being mad.” Because “Bed Intruder” is a Billboard chart topper. I’ll be looking forward to his next single, “Stupid, You’re So Dumb.” Uh, celeb-obsession alert.

Frisky Q&A: The Comediennes Behind The Web Series “Vag Magazine”

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 »

“Glee” Takes On Gay Bullying And Kurt Finds The Preppie Of His Dreams

Last night’s episode of “Glee” was glorious, and not just because it marked Puck‘s return from juvie. It was glorious because Kurt found his high school soul mate, prep-school blazer-wearing Blaine. Not only does Blaine look a little bit like young Elvis, but he also can sing! Here, his version of Katy Perry‘s “Teenage Dream.” So how did he meet this cutie? Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Cee-Lo Green To 30 Seconds To Mars

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.

Terrible Food Photographed Terribly

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.

Fall TV Guide: The Clueless Interns Of “Running Russell Simmons”

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.

Vincent Kartheiser Says Pete’s No Rapist

“It says in the scene, ‘she kisses him back.’ After she kisses me back, then we’re supposed to copulate. I don’t know why but she wouldn’t kiss me back! […] That actress just didn’t want to smooch me. She changed the whole course of Pete Campbell. And Matthew [Weiner] was all, ‘You didn’t rape her! I don’t know why people are saying you raped her! That wasn’t supposed to be rape!’”

—Actor Vincent Kartheiser on his “Mad Men” character Pete Campbell’s alleged rape of an au pair in season three of the show. Isn’t it just like Pete Campbell to blame it on the girl? [Movieline] Keep reading »

Women Running From Houses

In the ’60s and ’70s, there was an entire genre of literature seemingly built around frightened young innocents escaping the horrors of haunted, creepy old houses. Luckily, some genius soul has cataloged this literary trend in a site called Women Running From Houses, which compiles any and every book cover featuring a young woman running screeching from a house. Like this one, by author “Jane Lovesmith” (total pen name), called The Lock. “What was the haunting secret of the unopened crypt behind the old house on Gantry Hill?” it asks. Good question. Let’s not find out. [Women Running From Houses] Keep reading »
