Face Off: The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Orange County & New York City

Sadly, the first season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will come to an end after the reunion episode this Tuesday. These women were by far the most entertaining of the Bravo “Real Housewives” franchise because they didn’t keep up appearances for the camera, but let the true drama fly. I’m the only loser at The Frisky that watched every season of this franchise, so I decided to compare the Atlanta housewives with the Orange County and New York housewives. I do have to say that the first season of “Orange County” was entertaining because it was a new concept. I didn’t enjoy “New York” as much because it really exemplified the theory of two New Yorks, one for the haves and a completely different one for the have-nots. My comparisons, as I recall, after the jump. Keep reading »

“Philadelphia” Extra Still Living With HIV After 19 Years

In 1993, 15 years ago, the movie “Philadelphia” was released. Director Jonathan Demme wanted the film, which was the first big production to deal with AIDS, to reflect reality, so he cast dozens of people with HIV/AIDS in the movie, mainly as extras. Sadly, most of these extras died within a year of the movie’s release, but there is at least one who is still alive. Sue Kehler, 44, found out 19 years ago that she was infected with HIV. Amazingly, Kehler doesn’t look sick and has never gotten AIDS, meaning her body’s T-cell count has never dropped below 200, so it’s possible she’ll live to be an old woman.

Pole Dancing To Become An Olympic Sport?

Apparently, a bunch of Mormon women in Utah — yes, Mormon women in Utah — are seeking to turn the fine art of pole dancing into a competitive sport at the 2012 Olympics. Typically when one thinks of pole dancing, one thinks of strip clubs, cigarette smoke, alcohol, mirrored walls, Lucite heels, Poison’s “She’s My Cherry Pie,” and thongs stuffed with dollar bills. With these ladies? Not so much. Instead of “pole dancing,” they call their brass pole gymnastics “pole fitness.” “I don’t take my clothes off — at all!” one woman protests. Their high heels, they explain, are for muscle building. “We are some of the safest, most-skilled athletes,” another Olympics contender reveals. Some practitioners are housewives, not Olympic hopefuls, but no matter who you are it sounds like working the pole sheds pounds. Want to sign the petition? It’s here. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

    8 Things We’ve Learned About Sarah Palin Post-Election

    It’s been just over three weeks since Obama’s presidential win sent Sarah Palin back to Alaska, but that doesn’t mean the defeated VP hopeful has sunk back under the radar and into virtual anonymity. Far from it — Palin has been seen and heard more post-election than she ever was during the campaign, and frankly, I’m a little relieved. Like her or not, you can’t deny the woman’s charisma…and knack for providing media fodder like no one else has since, well, since Monica Lewinsky and her infamous blue dress. There’s just something about women, politics, and clothes, isn’t there? After the jump, 8 things we’ve learned about Sarah Palin since the elections, including, yes, exactly how she spent that $150,000 clothing allowance. Keep reading »

    “Milk” Biopic Rocks My World

    Last night, I got to sneak a peak of the movie “Milk”, which opens in theaters on November 26th, and James Franco naked, swimming in a pool. I’m not sure which one was more life changing, the booty or the biopic, but they were both even better than I had dreamed. “Milk,” about the life and times of Harvey Milk, the first gay man elected to public office back in the 1970s, seems unbelievably relevant today with the passing of Prop 8 earlier this month. While the film was shot long before the recent rallies, eerily enough, Milk was largely responsible for stopping California’s Prop 6, which would have made it legal to fire any employee and deny them housing simply because they were gay. The interwoven documentary footage from Milk’s protests look almost identical to that of this past weekend’s Join The Impact nationwide march — same cause, different decade. Keep reading »
