Remember Sean Duffy, the sweet-talking Wisconsin lumberjack from “The Real World: Boston”? You probably know that he went on to marry Rachel Campos, the Republican who had a crush on Puck during “The Real World: San Francisco.” Well, he apparently is also now a member of U.S. Congress. Last night, he won his race for Wisconsin’s 7th District seat in the House of Representatives. “What a great night in Wisconsin,” he said at his victory party. Another interesting piece of info about him: did you know that he and Rachel have six kids. Hello, reality TV producers. [PopEater]
But Sean isn’t the only Real Worlder in the news today. Keep reading »
MTV’s “Jersey Shore” had a bit of a situation with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) for airing what they deemed to be “one of the most blatantly transphobic scenes aired anywhere on television in the last few years.” During this season of the show, The Situation was out at a club, chatting up a person he presumed to be a woman but turned out to be transgendered. Afterward, he and other members of the crew threw around the word “tranny.” Keep reading »
At a show in Ireland over the weekend, Lady Gaga killed a Barbie. She did it Ozzy Osbourne-style, by sticking it in her mouth and beheading it … and then rubbing it on her leather, studded crotch. Man, we wish we were there to see the execution ourselves! When my Barbies got destroyed as a kid, it was usually through some brother-related microwave hijinx. But Gaga always takes things to the next level!

Before directing “Where the Wild Things Are,” Spike Jonze was just a skater punk who hung out with the effortlessly cool noise band Sonic Youth. This video for SY’s “100 Percent” was Jonze’s directorial debut, and features him and a baby Jason Lee skating and house partying with the band. The song is about the band’s friend, Joe Cole, who was shot and killed in front of his house in 1991. [YouTube

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.
Tonight’s episode of “Hellcats” will involve lots of neon and crimped hair. The squad throws a rocking ’80s costume party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the squad. During the shindig, Hellcats coach Vanessa sings two classic ’80s tunes—she does an awesome rendition of “We Got the Beat” with Marti and Savannah, before giving us a solo of “Tempted By the Fruit of Another.” Interesting, since while she loves her boyfriend, the (hot!) athletic department doctor, she used to have a thing with football coach Red Raymond.
As the Hellcats mythology goes, Vanessa was a Hellcats squad member 10 years ago. So how realistic is this? Keep reading »
Ice skating has never been my favorite activity. See: me clinging to the side wall for dear life during every ice skating birthday party I went to as a kid. But ABC’s newest show, “Skating with the Stars,” is seriously upping the ante on “Dancing with the Stars
” by taking C-listers and having them strap on skates, to not only learn how to dance on ice, but also to do lifts, spins, jumps, and other Olympic-caliber moves. We are expecting some hard spills, nasty bruises, and probably a few broken bones.
Last night, ABC announced the cast for this new series. Find out who they are, after the jump! Keep reading »

As any terrified toddler who’s been dropped into a pool cold turkey knows, swimming ain’t easy. And that’s equally true for tiger cubs. Witness these four cuties at the Smithsonian National Zoo in D.C. figure out the doggie paddle with a team of helpful zoo attendees standing by. [The Awl

Want to make sure your lady business tastes as sweet as a Cinnabon? Kandi and Phaedra from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” have a suggestion! On Monday’s episode, the gynecologically brilliant duo discussed “dipping your fingers in some sugar” and “sticking the fingers in your vajayjay” making you taste sweet and “sticky.” Not to mention incredibly itchy, as sugar completely upsets the normal pH balance in the vagina, causing yeast infections
. Yeast infections, my dear dumb housewives, are not sexy. Keep reading »
