What’s Your Socialite Name?

Hello, dear! Muffy Spencer here. I presume you already know your guido or guidette nickname (not that we associate with those sorts of people) but do you know your most important socialite name? Anyone who’s anyone simply has to have one!

After the jump, check out the Socialite Name Chart and see if you can figure out the real names of the Frisky staff. Keep reading »

Unconfirmed, Possibly Untrue Rumor Says “Jersey Shore” Is Back For Season Two! YAY!

Our prayers to the Red Peppers and Sausage Gods have been answered: Rumor has it that Snooki, The Situation and the gang are coming back for another season in Seaside Heights. (Duh of the century, right? MTV ain’t no fool.)

Apparently, Vinny told a group of admirers at the “Youth In Revolt” after-party that MTV wants the “Jersey Shore” cast back this summer—a piece of information overheard by a New York Daily News gossip columnist. Now, a PR rep for MTV hasn’t officially confirmed this bit of gossip, but let’s not get caught up in details.

The next order of business: can someone puh-leeze find out if our girl Snooki will be getting her own show, “Snookin’ For Love“? [Gawker] Keep reading »

Which Of These Women Will Be The Mom On “How I Met Your Mother”?

How I Met Your Mother” has me a little confused. I’ve watched the show since the beginning and think it is one of the best sitcoms, evah. It’s laugh-out-loud funny and unpredictable (Who can forget Slapsgiving or Robin’s Canadian pop single, “Let’s Go To The Mall”?), and gets the late 20-something experience like no other show. Not to mention that Neil Patrick Harris as Barney is one of the funniest characters of all time. But, I digress. The premise of the show has been that Ted is narrating to his children how he met their mother. Only, fours years in, we still have no idea who she is. Earlier this year, the show’s executive producer PROMISED that in episode 100—airing this coming Monday—we would finally be introduced to this elusive mother. At the same time, it was leaked that Rachel Bilson was cast for a recurring role on the show. It made so much sense—Ted and Rachel, Rachel and Ted. They’re both brunette and would look adorable together. But now new casting news is messing everything up. Keep reading »

“Hurt Locker”‘s Kathryn Bigelow Could Beat Ex-Hubby James Cameron For Best Director Oscar

This year’s Oscar nominees won’t be announced until February 2nd, but because an entire school of journalism has sprung up around predicting such things, we have a pretty good idea of what the nominee lists will look like. And almost everyone agrees that “The Hurt Locker,” the story of an elite bomb squad in Iraq, is the dark horse threat to “Up In The Air.” The director of “The Hurt Locker,” Kathryn Bigelow—an accomplished painter who also directed “Point Break” back in the day—will almost certainly be one of the five nominated for Best Director. If this happens, she’ll be one of only three women to ever be up for the award (the others were Lina Wertmuller, Jane Campion, and Sofia Coppola)—and she has a great chance of being the first to actually win it.

But here’s where things get interesting. Kathryn is also the ex-wife of James Cameron, who also is very likely to get a nomination in the Best Director category for the cinematic juggernaut that is “Avatar.” Keep reading »

Where Was This Video Two Weeks Ago?

Over Christmas, I had the unique opportunity to apartment-sit for Wendy, who has two cats I looked after: Miles, who is fat and cute, and Simone, who swatted and hissed at me every chance she got. In any case, Miles and I pretty much fell in love — I still pine for him — but if only I had seen this video back then! I am sure that I would have wrapped Miles up like the Christmas gift he deserves to be. Damn, the cat in this video is patient, though. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

The Best Film No One Knows About Yet


I spent my Christmas vacation in Dublin. After too much Guinness and too many hurricane-like rainstorms, my friends and I decided to duck into the Irish Film Institute to get warm and dry. It turned out to be a fantastic decision. Right as we slogged in, the film “Nowhere Boy” was about to begin. We grabbed some hot chocolate (they actually served real hot chocolate at the theater!) and took our seats. I knew nothing whatsoever about the film—I had never even heard about it before that moment. As it turned out, “Nowhere Boy”—which has not been released yet in the States—is the first film by avant-garde artist Sam Taylor-Wood. It’s a historical account of John Lennon’s late teenage years in Merseyside. Sure, I consider myself a Beatles fan. But about two seconds into the film, I became a huge fan of someone else—Aaron Johnson, the 19-year-old actor who plays John Lennon in the film. I’m not usually the type to get pervy crushes on young boys, but his hotness was off the Richter. I just couldn’t help myself. I think I actually drooled. Where the hell has he been hiding out?

“Project Runway” Season 7 Trailer Is Here!


A new season of “Project Runway” already? Didn’t the last season just end, like, last week? I guess the calendar got really screwed up with that Bravo vs. Lifetime fight over the show.

Anyway, here’s the season 7 trailer, starring my dream boyfriend Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and the ever-irascible Nina Garcia. This crop of designers looks hella fun—and hopefully this season, no one (cough Irina cough) will be ripping ideas off New York magazine. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Author Elizabeth Gilbert Talks About Tying The Knot

After her hugely successful book, Eat, Pray, Love, was published, Elizabeth Gilbert settled into a lovely life with the man she met on that personal journey. Both she and the guy, known as Felipe in the book, had been married and divorced before, and they told themselves they weren’t going to get married again; just promising commitment to one other was enough. That is, until the U.S. Department of Homeland Security decided not to let Felipe, a Brazilian with an Australian passport, back into the country after a trip overseas. Sure, the two could have settled down elsewhere, but they wanted to live near family and friends, so the only real option for getting Felipe permission to reenter the United States was for he and Elizabeth to get married.

While they waited for immigration to look into their case — Felipe needed to secure a fiancé visa and wouldn’t be able to return to the States until he was given one — the two bided their time by traveling around the world together, living as inexpensively as possible in Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, Elizabeth looked into this thing called marriage. What was the big deal about it? Why didn’t many last? How has it changed over the years, and what does that mean for us? Beyond the obvious questions, she considered every possible angle, including points of view I had never, ever considered, and wrote about how she came to terms with the institution (because she didn’t have much of a choice) in Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage, which hit stores yesterday. She spoke with The Frisky about the joys and trials of matrimony. Keep reading »

Lost In Translation

Somehow the movie “Whip It” got translated to “Bliss” in France, and the poster basically references nothing about roller derby or the film’s plot (aside from the fact that “Bliss” is the main character’s name). Ex-pats in Paris have been freaking out because they thought they somehow managed to miss the news of a new Ellen Page movie. Keep reading »
