Frisky Q & A: The Like Talk About Their New Album And Why Boy Bands Smell

It’s hard not to like The Like. They’re kind of like (ha!) a ‘60s girl group plopped down in the present—their songs are upbeat and harmony-drenched, no matter what the topic, and their style feels ripped straight off The Ronettes backs. Oh, but these gals actually play their own instruments. The Like formed in 2001, when Z Berg, Charlotte Froom, and Tennessee Thomas met in high school. They put out several EPs before getting picked up by Geffen and releasing Are You Thinking What I’m Thinking? Since then, they’ve switched bassists (to Laena Geronimo), added an organ player (Annie Monroe), and started working with Mark Ronson (yes, that Mark Ronson). The result is their new album, Release Me, which came out last week.

The Frisky sat down with drummer and founding member Tennessee (second from left) to ask about the new album and where they got the L-I-K-E dresses they wear on the cover. Keep reading »

Is Danielle Staub Really Having A Lesbian Affair With Lori Michaels?

Chances are, you didn’t bother to watch yesterday’s video of Danielle Staub performing the stalker-tastic song “Real Close” with Lori Michaels on “Watch What Happens Live.” I know I didn’t the first time around. But the last 20 seconds of the clip is actually where things get interesting—”Real Housewife” Danielle implies that she and Lori are doing the deed. Sure, during the performance, she threw her arm around Lori and sang directly into her eyes. But when the two sat down for an interview with Andy Cohen, Danielle took things to another level. Danielle motioned to Lori sit down in the chair and than draped herself across Lori’s lap. When Andy asks, “Now are you two together?” Lori shook her head “no.” But then Danielle cut her off, petting Lori’s hair and saying, “We’re not saying anything besides that we’re together doing the song, real close.”

Seriously, Danielle? Keep reading »

Will You Be Seeing “Pinkberry: The Movie”?


I don’t have anything super deep to say about this spoof video made by the folks over at William Morris Endeavor, one of the biggest agencies in Hollywood, about pitching “Pinkberry: The Movie.” But it’s funny, so enjoy. I have never wanted frozen yogurt more than right now. Keep reading »

“Glee” The Movie?

It looks like the gleeks of New Directions may be going in a new direction—toward the big screen. The word is that the entire cast is contractually obligated to appear in not one but three “Glee” flicks. But do we really want to see “Glee” on the big screen? It sounds like a potential disaster to me. Some things are just meant for TV and trying to fit them into a film format often turns out to be a mistake. (Hear us, “Sex and the City” and “Entourage?”) If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. “Glee” is not very-plot heavy to begin with. It’s the music that lets us ignore the gaping holes long enough to suspend our belief. What could the kids possibly get up to for two full hours that we haven’t already seen? So what do you think—yay or nay? [NY Post] Keep reading »

Former “Biggest Loser” Contestant Reveals The Big Fat Truth About The Show

Kai Hibbard, a former contestant on “The Biggest Loser,” has decided to come forward and shed some light on how such major pounds are really shed on the show. Wait—reality TV isn’t real? What? “The Biggest Loser” is a $100 million franchise? No way! Props to Kai for coming forward to admit that she “participated in a myth that hurts people.” After the jump, some of Kai’s big, fat confessions about her time on “The Biggest Loser.”

Peggy Olsen’s New Hair Is … Eww

Over the years, we’ve liked the way Peggy Olson’s style has progressed. Until now. Here is an image of her from the upcoming season, and it’s even more disappointing than the season’s teaser poster. Um, who attacked the girl with hairspray? And why so drab? Homegirl does not look good, which is a shame because actress Elisabeth Moss is so adorable. I guess this was the style back then? [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: It’s Time To Boycott “The Bachelor”

The announcement that Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have split is the straw breaking this camel’s back. I think I’ve had just about enough of “The Bachelor.” I have known for a long time that the relationships born and bred in front of a camera are a shamfest (except for maybe Ryan and Trista) but it took me a while to catch onto the fact that the show is really nothing more than a shameless promotional vehicle for launching the entertainment careers of the young, hot, and fame-hungry. Let’s review the evidence at hand, shall we? Keep reading »

The Facebook Movie Poster Looks Kinda Heavy

“You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” This poster for “The Social Network,” aka the Facebook movie, makes it seem like those nerds are “The Tudors” or something. What, no poking? [IMDB] Keep reading »

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” On June 21, 2010

Well, I think we’ve made our way through one climactic milestone on this season of “The Bachelorette” — last week, Krazy Kasey did not try and kill himself. Instead he did something less permanent to show his love for Ali — he branded himself with the lamest “Bachelor”-inspired tattoo ever. This week, after being mercifully saved and given a rose last week, will Kasey reveal his tattoo to Ali? Find out when I liveblog the latest episode of “The Bachelorette,” starting at 8 p.m. EST.
