Let’s Hope “The Song I Wish Taylor Swift Would Write” Is The Last Of The Backlash


Taylor Swift backlash: it was inevitable. We here at The Frisky are firmly in the for-cripes-sakes-they’re-just-love-songs-chill-out-everybody camp and we always will be. But as we’ve already seen, more than a few bloggers are angrily typing away, cataloging how Taylor Swift is (and I quote) “a feminist’s worst nightmare.” I’m sorry, but do you people remember Britney Spears?

Betty White May Be Hosting “SNL” After All — Just Not On Her Own

Ask — nay, demand — and Lorne Michaels will listen, sort of. For the last month or so, fans of Betty White have been clamoring for the “Golden Girl” to host “Saturday Night Live,” and according to Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorne Michaels is game. However, he’s apparently not sure that White, who is 88 years old, will be able to carry the show on her own, so he’s supposedly assembling a roster of funny ladies to host together. Molly Shannon is on board, and Michaels is going after “SNL” alum like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as well. The idea of all these women on “Saturday Night Live” totally excites me, but I totally think White could pull off the hosting gig on her own. I mean, would Michaels not allow Clint Eastwood — who is turning 80 this year — to host on his own? Betty White, while up there in years, is a professional, and a hilarious one at that — I say she should get the coveted hosting gig all for herself, unless she feels like sharing.

Quotable: Ali Thinks It Would Be “Difficult” Being The Next Bachelorette

“I had to make a tough choice whether to stay or leave because of work. I’d be faced with that decision again, but I would challenge myself to put love first … The opportunity would be so exciting. It’d be very difficult for me because I’ve never met a guy and been attracted right away. Usually I have several interactions and become attracted to their mind instead of the first impression. I might not be any good because I’d be drilling everyone.”

— Ali Fedotowsky, the woman who prematurely left “The Bachelor,” on the buzz about her being the next “Bachelorette.” But what if Jake were to ask her back before that happened?

“He was hurt by me leaving and I think he is with someone right now and happy, so I don’t know that I can imagine him coming back. But if he did, I would think about it. I really care for him. I don’t know how quickly we could move forward.”

Trailer Park: “Shutter Island,” “The Ghost Writer,” “Red Riding Trilogy”

We’re getting into those dark, drudging days of winter when all you want to do is hole up with a blanket with a warm drink and wait for spring. If humans were really as smart as we’re supposed to be, we would have initiated mandatory winter hibernation like the bears. But since we’re stuck trudging through snow and dealing with our sallow skin tone, we might as well take the opportunity to hibernate in a movie theater for a few hours a week, at least. This week brings a trio of dark thrillers with “Shutter Island,” “The Ghost Writer,” and “Red Riding Trilogy.” Keep reading »

This Dude Survived 30 Chick Flicks In 30 Days!

Nick Waters may be a superhero, as far as I’m concerned. This brave, 28-year-old Oklahoma boy survived watching 30 chick flicks in 30 days. The idea came to him last year when he and his wife, Nicci (Nick and Nicci … that’s a rom-com waiting to happen), were watching a garden-variety, painful chick flick together. Since he didn’t really get it (we don’t always either, Nick), he thought watching more was a surefire way to understand the opposite sex better. Nick took things a step further and decided to write about his experience on a blog, 30chickflicks.com. Keep reading »

Renee Zellweger Supposedly Pushing To Make Bridget Jones Skinny In The Next Flick

Over the summer, we got more than a little bit excited when we heard a rumor that “Bridget Jones 3″ was in the works. Sources say the movie is happening. But will Bridget be the adorable, slightly plump woman we identified with in the first flick? Or will one of her diets have worked, and she’ll now be rail thin? Supposedly, and the source here is the National Enquirer so take it with a grain of salt, Renee Zellweger is hard-core pressing for the later latter. According to the rag, she is nervous to put on weight for the role again—her doctors have told her it’s unhealthy. Also, Renee allegedly thinks the demise of her and Jack White’s relationship had to do with her extra pounds and doesn’t want to risk having it affect her relationship with Bradley Cooper. (Side notes: A) Does Jack White really get to talk about people putting on weight—Noel Gallagher recently described him as “Zorro on doughnuts.” B) Perhaps Bradley would like her a little curvier?) Renee supposedly asked producers if she could wear a fat suit rather than actually gaining the weight. And now she’s lobbying to avoid the issue altogether and play the role as she is. Producers, we BEG you not to let this happen. A skinny Bridget Jones just wouldn’t be the same. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
