“It seemed like something someone would say when they’re really drunk at a party with their other hateful friends, but may be not good to write down and put it out for people to look at. … We have this great episode coming up where Molly cancels her subscription to Marie Claire.”
— “Mike and Molly” creator Mark Roberts responds to MarieClaire.com blogger Maura Kelly’s post called “Should Fatties Get A Room?” where she said of the show’s plus-sized characters, “I’d be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of at kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them do anything.” I think Molly should start reading The Frisky instead!

I suppose that after surviving so many near-death experiences, Ozzy Osbourne might not be the worst choice to be a health/diet/life advice columnist. But he certainly can’t be the best choice, either. Given the fact that he’s barely coherent in speaking, perhaps writing is a good route? He’ll be doing just that for Rolling Stone magazine after already getting a deal with the U.K.’s Sunday Times. In his first column, Ozzy told a vertigo sufferer to “go to bed, drink only water, then get up and walk around in circles for a bit. If you’re still dizzy, let me know.” He also added, “I thought I had vertigo… I went to the doctor, and he said, ‘Mr. Osbourne, the problem—as far as I can tell—is simply that you’re very, very drunk.” Yeah, it’s going to be frickin awesome.

“The Hills” got a hugely-hyped series finale episode, complete with a trick ending. It’s cousin show, “The City,” however has gone out with a whimper. The season two finale showed Roxy Olin moving out and Whitney Port duking it out with Kelly Cutrone after going to hear what a competing PR firm had to say. And apparently, that’s how the series will end—it has not been picked up for a third season. Should we be shocked that Whitney is heading back to the left coast? Keep reading »
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.
At the end of last week’s “Hellcats,” Marti and Lewis finally kissed. Tonight, it looks like they will have some pretty intense makeout sessions. Interestingly, Marti isn’t the first member of his squad that Lewis has dated—he also has a past with squad mean girl Alice.
So, are college cheerleading squads miniature dating services? Keep reading »
Someone in Jersey has been taking notes on the success of the “Sex and the City” bus tour in New York City, because now “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is getting a caravan of their own. Instead of being taken to cupcake shops and Carrie’s stoop, “Housewives” obsessives will be rolled around to the houses, salons, and stores that are highlighted in the Bravo show. The tour will also feature a lunch stop at Caroline Manzo’s The Brownstone, though Caroline insists she is not making a profit from the bus riders. The tour will still cost you $95 per person. For those of us who can’t afford this New Jersey joyride, I suggest getting a car and hitting the landmarks yourself. Or not. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Human childhood is filled with traumatic experiences. And so, apparently, is otter childhood. Turns out, otter pups don’t know how to swim and actually have to be taught by their moms! Watch this video to see how the process works, which basically starts with momma otter dunking her kid in water, the baby otter trying to escape, only to be pulled back into the pool with mom’s teeth. Seems terrifying. Yet—who knew terror could be so cute? [Cute Overload

“I haven’t put the one on yet. It’s such a big decision. I have a little hand in having a decision–or having an opinion more–but I think it’s pretty much up to Stephenie. I’m not quite sure exactly what it’s going to look like, but it will be beautiful, I’m sure.”

Fox, Christopher Plummer, Lea Thompson and Huey Lewis (!) about making the flick. One exciting trivia bit: They had to film much of it at night to accommodate Michael J. Fox’s “Family Ties” schedule.

Lord knows no one would make “Mad Men” into those Mr. Men kids’ books because they’d quickly have to explain alcoholism and why Mr. Draper is humping the secretary. But if it did happen, we bet “Mad Men” kids’ books would look just like this!
