Wonder Woman Gets A Makeover

Most 69-year-old women are chasing the grandkids, but Wonder Woman is still chasing bad guys — and she’s got a new outfit for the first time ever! Wonder Woman will debut her makeover today, in Issue No. 600 of her monthly comic book. Gone is the golden eagle-encrusted bodice, star-spangled boy shorts and, shocker, 80 percent of her exposed flesh. Wonder Woman’s new duds are downright modest — typically unheard of for women in comic book land — with black tights, a red top and blue jacket. Her ample bosom still features prominently, but hey, at least she is no longer fighting crime in a bustier. [New York Times] Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore” Season Two Trailer: Miami, Catfights Galore And Vinny Gets Some!


Why do I keep watching this show about these terrible people? The “Jersey Shore” gang is back and this time, it’s in Miami! Ronnie is still a juiced up d-bag, JWoww still has the temper of an enraged rhino, and it looks like Vinny finally gets laid by Snooki and Angelina. It all looks just as offensive-yet-entertaining as last season, but seriously, MTV, where the hell is the duck phone? [MTV.com] Keep reading »

Babies And Demons? Yeah, “Paranormal Activity 2″ Goes There

Both Amelia and Meghan McCain loved the demonic horror flick “Paranormal Activity,” but I was like, “Bitches, please! Go change your diapers.” Unfortunately, “Paranormal Activity 2″ doesn’t look any scarier — but it plays the baby-in-distress card. That’s low, Hollywood. That’s low. Keep reading »

The Top 20 Things That Drive Us Crazy

Hello Friskyverse! Last week I told you about what drives me crazy on the subway. I mostly just needed to get it off my chest, but I was touched when so many of you hopped on the complaint train and sounded off about the things that send you through the roof. After the jump, the 20 most common things that piss Friskians off. Don’t you just love turning lemons into lemonade? Keep reading »

Quotable: Lauryn Hill Explains Why She Left Us And If She’ll Be Back

“There were a number of different reasons. But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. In fact, as musicians and artists, it’s important we have an environment — and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the [music] industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society, or at least some aspect of society. And it’s important that people be given the time that they need to go through, to grow, so that the consciousness level of the general public is properly affected. Oftentimes, I think people are forced to make decisions prematurely. And then that sound radiates … I have five children. The youngest is 2 now, so she’s old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she’s going to be OK. That’s one reason. And I think it’s just time. I’m starting to get excited again. Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first. I think people might realize, you know, ‘We love the way she sounds, we love the music, but I think we just love how fearless she is. How boundless she is, when it comes to what she wants to do.’ And I think that can be infectious.”

Lauryn Hill gave a rare interview to NPR, in which she speaks candidly about the business reasons that led to her music hiatus, but she makes no reference to the personal aspects (ahem, Rohan Marley) that she alluded to during her MTV Unplugged special. Either way, I’m happy Ms. Hill, as she wants people to call her, is back onstage, even if I can’t see her at this summer’s Rock the Bells festival. [NPR] Keep reading »

Susan Sarandon Working On A Ping-Pong Reality Show

Susan Sarandon may have lost her marbles—or, uh, her ping pong balls. Last December, she and her dude of 23 years, Tim Robbins, split. Next thing you know, Susan was seen constantly hanging out with Jonathan Bricklin, a 31-year-old who is her fellow investor in SPiN, a ping-pong club in New York City. Now, Susan has announced that they are working on a reality TV show together about the ping-pongers who spend their days and nights at SPiN. “It won’t be the ‘Jersey Shore,’” says Susan, who also says she is the “Johnny Appleseed of ping-pong.” “It’s more of an episodic documentary. We’re trying to invent something you haven’t seen before that follows a bunch of people in this crazy little subculture. … We’re just in the early filming stages now.” Keep reading »

“Huge” Recap: Fat People Were On TV And, Whaddya Know, The World Didn’t End

When the opening shot of a TV show is a scale, one thing is clear: this show will be about weight. But true to what actress Nikki Blonsky told me in our recent Q&A, her new ABC Family show “Huge” is about so many things beyond just body size. “Huge” debuted on ABC Family last night and it’s cute, funny and just like Blonsky said, it’s unlike any other show on television. Visually, the show is a complete anomaly: Nearly every single actor is plus-sized. Their size stood out at first, but soon I forgot it was a show about kids at a weight-loss camp and just saw it as a show about kids.

Spoilers, after the jump … Keep reading »

Quotable: Candace Cameron Bure On The Cultural Impact Of DJ Tanner

“Oh I totally enjoy ['Full House']. I don’t cringe at all. It’s funny and I completely embrace it. ‘Full House’ made me part of who I am today. There’s nothing embarrassing about it—maybe just the sweaters and big hair. I’ve had so many people say, ‘I used to want to dress like DJ Tanner.’ Now they look back and it’s a joke. ‘What am I going to be for Halloween? Ooh, DJ Tanner—I’ll wear scrunchie socks and big high bangs.’ I think it’s awesome. And I think pretty soon ‘pulling a DJ Tanner’ will be in the dictionary. I hear it all the time when girls who haven’t eaten all day are about to faint while working out. They ‘pulled a DJ Tanner.’ It’s great. I love it.”

—Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on “Full House” back in the day. After leaving Hollywood, getting hitched to a hockey star, and having three kids, Candace is back on the small screen on the totally underrated show “Make It Or Break It.” I wonder if her brother, Kirk Cameron, ever has anyone tell him they “pulled a Mike Seaver”? Which I imagine would be skipping school to make out with a girl while having Boner Stabone wear a wig and pretend to be him. Ahh, late ’80s television. [NY Post] Keep reading »

“Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows”: Hold Onto Your Broomsticks, The Trailer Is Here


Confession: I have only read up to the fifth book in the Harry Potter series. And if there is anything that’s going to make me regret that lazy choice, it’s this trailer right here. “Epic” is the only word suitable for this teaser. The franchise seems to know it’s a big freaking deal, dubbing itself “generation-defining.” But I am willing to let the boasting go, mostly because it’s true. I think a weekend vacation to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and see the “Death Hallows Part 1″ midnight showing is in order. Who’s with me? Keep reading »
