To make the journey slightly more pleasant, we’ve selected a some of the candidates’ more attractive assets — specifically their hottie sons. We thought some eye candy couldn’t hurt (And okay, okay,… More »
I probably could have written the Modern Love essay, Exit Left, Wordlessly, in this past Sunday’s New York Times. Not that I could have penned it better than writer Aimee Lee Ball, just that I have a story which is frighteningly similar. Ball’s tale is about breaking up with a man only to have him resurface… More »
Your plan to get your taxes done early has gone out the window. You consistently feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day, between friends, work, eating and sleeping.

I have a new gynecologist. Let’s call her Bev. She’s a mid-wife so she’s not actually a doctor, but I am already more impressed with her than any other lady doctor that I’ve ever had.

The other night, I met a fellow writer at a dinner party. I’d read her work and followed her online but had no idea what she was really like. I think I assumed because she’s 10 years younger than me and, in my mind, part of the “cool” crowd, that we wouldn’t get along, but… More »
At first I felt betrayed. And then I felt smug. This would be a piece of cake going cold turkey! No problem! I don’t need Ryan Gosling. I can go without. But then I started to realize it might not be so simple. Experience all of these emotions — and more! — in my first video blog… More »
Surely you have noticed that our fearless leader Amelia has a little bit of a thing for Ryan Gosling. We feel that it might have gotten out of control in recent weeks (months/years) and it might finally be time to act. Inspired by our favorite television show, “Intervention,” and our favorite recovering addicts/interventionists Candy Finnigan… More »

We’re celebrating New Year, New You month here at The Frisky, and we’d like to propose a simple, fun goal for 2012: let’s all be a bit more fabulous. Let’s bring out our inner diva. Let’s throw a fake fur vest over our jeans and T-shirts. Let’s have more orgasms. Let’s walk into coffee shops… More »
“Downton Abbey”: if you’re not watching it, you’ve probably heard someone talking about it and have wondered what all the fuss is about. If you are in latter category but would like to get up to speed and perhaps start watching, allow me educate you. I took it upon myself to watch all of season… More »
In high school, one of my best friends was a girl we’ll call Tara. Tara and I had been close since middle school, but as we got older we developed an unhealthy dynamic: Tara demanded so much of my time and energy, and I wasn’t good at putting up boundaries. She had a mean streak,… More »
