To us Gen X ladies, Sassy was the ultimate teen magazine. Each issue left us feeling a little cooler, because we weren’t just in the know—we were in the know. And no one was more responsible for that feeling than editor Christina Kelly. Her columns “What Now” and “Cute Band Alert” were everything a 16-year-old, flannel-wearing girl wanted or needed. Plus, she wrote the mag’s infamous Kurt and Courtney cover story. The woman was idol-worthy.
It’s been four years since her last job as Editor-in-Chief at ELLEgirl magazine. Since then, her name has been missing from mastheads. But now she has joined the blogosphere—cheers!—with Fallen Princess, a site where she discusses everything from her love of “Glee” to her thoughts on being a mom. After the jump, The Frisky sits down and asks Christina a few questions. Keep reading »
I just realized that it’s been more than two months since I’ve gone to see a movie. Why? Because why pay $10+ to sit in a freezing theater when I can park it on the couch and watch all the amazingness that is my television. This week, like all weeks this month, I am super pumped for the final episodes of “Lost.” But there’s some other great stuff going down, too, like the season finale of “America’s Next Top Model,” fresh episodes of “Friday Night Lights” (finally!), and a “Simpsons”-themed dose of “Top Chef Masters.” After the jump, check out previews.

Dear God, why hasn’t CBS forced Andy Rooney to retire? My favorite — and by favorite, I mean least
favorite, but in a painfully amusing way — segment on “60 Minutes” is when Andy Rooney is given the floor to cantankerously complain about the things that irritate him. Whether it’s the stupid mail and presents sent to him by fans (seriously, he complains about free gifts), spam, or some turn-of-phrase that Andy finds particularly annoying, Rooney is always pissed off about something. The thorn in his side this weekend? Popular music! Specifically, why he hasn’t heard of all the musical artists that are currently on the Billboard charts! Why has he
, a normal, average American, never heard of this Justin Bieber, or that Lady Gaga, or some fella named Usher? I don’t really get Rooney’s point other than he’s out of touch because he’s incredibly old, but this segment was all sorts of hand-meet-forehead. Can he go back to complaining about Facebook now?

I loved the first two seasons of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” While the ladies’ beefs in seasons past were petty, this year’s feuds are more, “Really—you have more than three words to say about this microscopic thing?” The most disappointing part for me is Bethenny and Jill. In the past two seasons, they were best of friends and my two favorite characters on the show because they were at least 10 degrees less crazy than the rest of the women. But this season, they’re in a huge fight. Jill is furious Bethenny checked out on their friendship over the summer, while Bobby was sick, and left her a message telling her to, “Get a hobby.” Meanwhile, Bethenny is convinced that Jill is just jealous that she now has a great new husband. If they’d sit down for 15 minutes, they could both apologize and resolve the whole thing. Instead, they’re avoiding each other, creating a ton of tension, and showing outrageous levels of self-absorption in the process.
But their feud reached a fever pitch this weekend, when Bethenny had her baby. Keep reading »
Since 99.990 percent of you probably don’t watch the Golf Channel, you probably missed this slip-up from reporter Win McMurray. McMurray was reporting on the fact that Tiger Woods
withdrew from the Players Championship this weekend because of a neck injury. “He says he’s been playing with a bad neck for over a month and thinks it could be a bulging d**ks,” she said, before quickly correcting herself and saying, “disk.” A case of being tongue-tied or a Freudian slip?

Have you heard Christina Aguilera‘s new song? It’s called “Woo Hoo” (“Woohoo”? “WooHoo”?), it features Nicki Minaj, and it is about cunnilingus. Have other songs been written about going down on a girl before? Beats me. This is surely a contender for the “Most Impassioned Song About Cunnilingus of the Year” award at the next Grammy Awards. Technically, the lyrics are non-explicit, but they are raunchy in the innuendo department. I wouldn’t, you know, crank it at top volume at work. Keep reading »
Hey, did you catch Betty White hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? There was a lot of hype surrounding this episode, so much so that it seemed almost important that Betty could live up to everyone’s expectations — but as far as I’m concerned, she did. Supported by some of the most beloved female cast members from “SNL”‘s recent past (Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, and Rachel Dratch, amongst others), the ratings for the episode — featuring musical guest Jay-Z — were the highest they’ve been in 14 months and the cast and crew gave Betty a standing ovation and presented her with flowers at the end of the show. It’s no wonder; Betty appeared in nearly every single sketch that aired during the live show, a feat not even younger hosts are asked to attempt — and that’s not including a handful of other skits that were performed during dress rehearsal but didn’t make the cut for the live show. Luckily, Hulu has those skits, which you can watch here
. But before you do that, re-watch (or watch for the first time if you were crazy enough to miss it) Betty appearing alongside Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer in their NPR-spoofing sketch “Delicious Dish,” discussing her amazing, um, muffins. Keep reading »
