The 11th “cycle” of America’s Next Top Model premiered last night and it was really worth the two hours The CW allotted for it. This season promises to be the most daring ever because Isis is the first transgender contestant. Amelia and I couldn’t wait to start IMing about the new contestants and, of course Tyra, when we got into The Frisky offices this morning. Our chat is after the jump, but also check out the video clip above. First, Gossip Girl, then 90210, and now ANTM…this has been a great week for TV. [Um, and a bad week for reading and outdoor activities. -- Editor] Keep reading »
C’mon. You know you’re just dying to know what John McCain is saying to ol’ Levi Johnston that’s making Bristol Palin smile so sweetly. [Minneapolis, MN, 9/3/08] Keep reading »
We’ve been thinking about accidental insemination a lot lately because of this whole Sarah Palin/Bristol Palin/Levi Johnston situation. Honestly, we feel for Bristol and Levi because their little mistake is everyone in America’s business now, but they’re not the first couple to deal with an unplanned pregnancy. Here are five songs about the situation… Keep reading »
Besides sharing a name with Matthew McConaughey’s son, Levi Johnston is also the soon-to-be father of Bristol Palin’s baby. He’s also, um, totally hot, if a bit Abercrombie for my taste. So who is this little rabble-rouser who has helped bring such scandalous national attention to the selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate?
LOVES: There’s only one woman in Levi’s life as far as we can tell. The high school student (conflicting reports say he’s either 17 or 18) has been dating 17-year-old Bristol for at least five months — that’s how far along she is in her pregnancy — and according to the Palin camp, the two are planning on getting married. There are some conspiracy theorists who think that Bristol and Levi are already married — Levi’s sister Mercede’s MySpace page, which was public this weekend but is now set to private, referred to Sarah Palin as “Mommy Inlaw” (sic). Whatever the case may be, Levi is already such a part of the Palin family that he’s even headed to the Republican National Convention to hear his future mama-in-law speak!

- The show is about a bunch of teenagers who live in Bristol, England, so they use all sorts of awesome slang, i.e., “spliff” means marijuana.
- Skins has its own Twitter, and if you follow it, you’ll learn a new British word every day.
- Each episode focuses on one character’s perspective, so you see Cassie battling an eating disorder, Jal dealing with a famous father, and Tony trying to pick up private school girls by joining a choir — stuff that wouldn’t really get touched on if the show just focused on the group as a whole. And the characters are so different you’ll fall in love with at least one of them (we heart Cassie).
- BBC America airs episodes Sundays at 9 and 10 p.m. but replays them Mondays at 12, 1, 3, and 4 a.m., so if you’re an insomniac, you’ll have something to watch besides infomercials at least one day a week.
- The actors actually look like they’re 17 years old and in high school, unlike Naomi on the new 90210, who looks about 30.

We’ve all dated cocky guys, but Mohammed Bello takes the cake! About a month ago, we here at The Frisky were befuddled by the story of a Nigerian man with 86 wives. At the apparently arrogant age of 84, Mohammed Bello was still fathering children and seen as a preacher and healer to his wives, most of whom are in their twenties, and his brood of 170 kids. His compound has been a constant source of aggravation and embarrassment to the Muslim population of his own country, who see him as a crazy cult leader. In fact, he’s even been receiving death threats. Since even most Islamic fundamentalists believe you can only have up to four wives, the state has ordered Bello to divorce at least 82 of them by this Sunday or face exile from Nigeria. So what does Bello’s camp have to say in his defense? Spokesman for the self-proclaimed shaman, Mohammed Tahir, counterattacked with, “He is not going to divorce any of his wives. Rather he is going to marry more.” Boo-yah! It’s on! [Reuters]
