Frisky Rant: I’m Concerned For “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”

It’s been all fun and games with the drama on the “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” — until now. While I was laughing at the drama between Danielle Staub and everyone else last season, I’m certainly not laughing anymore. We’ve gone from some amusing table throwing to unwarranted paranoia, possibly serious revenge plots, and an entourage of convicts. Am I the only one (besides the Manzo clan) who thinks that Danielle is seriously mentally ill and capable of doing harm to herself or someone else? Keep reading »

Christopher And Albie Manzo Get The Millionaire Matchmaker Treatment

Holy Bravo Crossover! It turns out that Patti Stanger is “old friends” with Caroline Manzo of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” so on the upcoming season of “Millionaire Matchmaker,” Manzo’s sons Christopher and Albie will be set up. I can’t imagine the boys are millionaires, but maybe with their burgeoning reality TV careers, they’ll get there soon enough? Apparently, the boys are looking for “brunette, Italian-Catholic girls” and since this season is filming in New York, there should be no shortage of those. Since Patti is from New Jersey, I already suspected this season will be all about tricking New York ladies into dating guys from the Garden State, and now Patti’s confirmed this theory. “There are five women to one guy, so what do you do if the city is metrosexual, gay, with not enough men? Carpe diem! You go to Jersey!” Maybe we could combine three shows at once and throw the ladies of “Jersey Shore” in as bait for the Manzo man-boys? [NY Mag] Keep reading »

Will “Mad Men”‘s Season 4 Be As Boring As Its Poster?

If you had never watched “Mad Men” before, the poster for season four wouldn’t make it look like a very interesting show. Man stands in an empty office, staring out a window, with only a telephone? Bor-ing. I far preferred the symbolism in season three’s poster: a tense Don Draper sitting in his office with water swiftly rising up above his ankles. [EW.com] Keep reading »

Tiny Teacup Pig Dances, Plays Piano

Are you ever sitting there, toiling away at your cubicle or wherever, in some mood or the other, and you see a viral video, and you’re like, “OMG, that is so how I’m feeling right now”? That is exactly how I feel watching this tiny teacup pig do an electronic dance on a keyboard. I’m pretty sure this is a cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg. He really knows how to bang out a tune with those hooves, eh? He plays better than I do after several years of childhood piano lessons. That’ll do, pig. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

“This Ain’t Avatar XXX” Promises 3D Blue Sex This Fall

Wow. I had no idea when I put my secret desire out into the universe — “Oh, won’t someone please make a porn version of ‘Avatar’ with Na’vis having sex in 3D?” — that my dream would come true. Hustler’s ingeniously titled “This Ain’t Avatar XXX” will be released on DVD this fall. Must we wait so long to see interplanetary Smurf sex? Yes. [/Film] Keep reading »

“Annexed,” A Tale Of Anne Frank’s Hot — And Fictional — Sex Life

Anne Frank‘s hormones are not the first thing that comes to mind when one remembers the world’s most famous teenage girl. But Sharon Dogar, a young adult author, has made it so in a fictionalized version of Frank’s Diary of a Young Girl. Annexed is an allegedly a “racy diary” about Anne’s relationship with Peter Van Pels, who hid from the Nazis alongside the Frank family in an Amsterdam office building — including a story about the youngsters having sex.

Little Frenemies On The Prairie

According to Alison Arngrim, who played Nellie Oleson on the TV show “Little House on the Prairie,” all was not so quiet on the western front. In her new memoir, Confessions of a Prairie Bitch (awesome title!), she admits that there was some major behind-the-scenes tension between herself, Melissa Gilbert (Laura Ingalls), and Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary Ingalls).

Trailer Park: “Cyrus,” “Toy Story 3,” “The Killer Inside Me,” “I Am Love,” “Stonewall Uprising”

It’s been a pretty intense week, with all the basketball and soccer madness causing men to screech and riot in the streets. I have trouble maintaining that kind of enthusiasm for longer than the time it takes to eat an eight-course meal, but can respect those who can bring it. I can also get enthusiastic for this week’s movie releases, as there are some good ones, like “Cyrus,” “Toy Story 3,” “The Killer Inside Me,” “I Am Love,” “Let It Rain,” and “Stonewall Uprising.” So, if you need an escape—and God knows you do—go see a movie already.

A Dating Site For Music Buffs

I won’t lie—when I get a message from a guy through an online dating site, I read it, then look at a photo or two, and then see what bands he lists as his favorite. Yes, it’s shallow and I assure you that I do look at other biographical details, too. Not that it’s sooo vital, but I love a guy who has great taste in music—the ideal is someone who enjoys what’s on my iPod, but can also introduce me to new stuff. Yes, I am a music snob and the way to my heart is through a good mix CD. (And, uh, being an awesome person—but that’s a point for another post.) So I’m thinking that Tastebuds.fm is kind of a great idea. It works one of two ways—you can manually input your favorite bands, or it can scan your Last.fm playlists and match you up with single folks in your area who like the same music you do. The more bands you put in, the more matches you get. And so far, the dudes in here look like something to sing about. Sorry, had to. [Crushable] Keep reading »

Quotable: “True Blood” Fangs Are A Pain

“To learn how to bite somebody, there should be a school. We should have teeth school. I find Alex [Skarsgard] or Stephen [Moyer], who plays Sookie Stackhouse’s vampire beau Bill Compton, and say, ‘How the heck do I do this? … How do I not lisp?’ He said, you just have to take the pain.’ ‘They’re so big and sharp that they go into your bottom lip.’ He was exactly right. If you try to avoid and find a place to make these comfortable in your mouth, it’ll never happen. You look like evil Bugs Bunny.”

Kristin Bauer, who plays the intriguing and deadly Pam on “True Blood,” explains what it’s like to suddenly have sharp fangs. [People]
