The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For November 15-16th 2008

This is definitely a Netflix/Blockbuster/On Demand weekend, unless “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” or “Starter Wife” marathons appeal to you. Beyonce is the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” alonside the hilarious Paul Rudd. Oh, and I’ll be liveblogging the second to last episode of “True Blood” on Sunday at 8pm (watch it on HBO) — it’s Amelia’s birthday so she’s taking the night off. Not from vampires, from work. The rest of the TV schedule is after the jump! Keep reading »

    Man Stands Up For Women’s Rights, Gets Rewarded

    It’s shocking, that even in the 21st Century, women can be paid less than men for the same job, but that’s just what was happening at the private Lake Ridge Academy in Cleveland, Ohio. Well, until James Whiteman bravely stood up for equal rights, that is! As the head of the lower school, Mr. Whiteman courageously voiced his concerns over the chauvinist disparity in the salaries between his male and female co-workers. After complaining, he promptly fired. “[Mr. Whiteman] had nothing to gain and everything to lose by standing up for female teachers that were afraid to do it themselves,” Gregory Gordillo, his attorney, told Metro. Yet, after a dozen years of dedicated service, he was kicked to the curb for smack talking the sexist system. But this week, two years after his termination, justice was finally served! A jury awarded the former administrator $950,000 for wrongful termination. Ha! And they thought skimping on their female teachers salaries was saving them money. [Cleveland.com] Keep reading »

    Join The Impact: Protest For Equal Rights This Saturday!

    From celebs like Drew Barrymore and Melissa Etheridge, to we humble Frisky gals, many people have been speaking out against the handful of discriminatory marriage and adoption laws that passed in states across the country that block homosexuals from having the same rights as their straight counterparts. In Los Angeles, a large crowd took to the streets to protest Prop 8 last Wednesday and attracted a lot of attention. But the movement to equalize marriage for everyone, despite sexual orientation, is just getting started! So how can you show the world your support for gay rights? This Saturday, a group called Join the Impact, has organized peaceful protests in cities all across the country. To take part in this nationwide rally, simply visit their website to find the gathering nearest you. [Join the Impact] Keep reading »

    You’re A Muppet!

    Thanks to the miracle that is 21st century technology, you can now become a Muppet. Toy store FAO Schwarz’s website has a special online Muppet factory, The Muppet Whatnot Workshop, where you can build your own Muppet in your likeness. Pick your body (orange, green, blue), your eyes (girlie, droopy, catty), your hair (yellow boa, brown bob, black pompadour), your outfit (cheerleader, showgirl, mod), and find out what you look like Muppet-style. If you simply must have your stuffed Muppet self, or any other Muppet you envision, you can buy the Muppet you designed, and they’ll build it and ship it to you. Apparently, as a Muppet, I’m $90.

    Top Chef Is Back!

    Top Chef” is back on Bravo, y’all! I’m so excited. I think it’s one of the best reality TV competition shows and unlike, say, “Hell’s Kitchen,” these chefs are actually insanely talented. Well, from what I can see. It’s not like Taste-O-Vision has been made yet (get on that, scientists). After the jump, I break down some of the stand out contestants and what I think they’ll be known for this season. For the record, you should probably take my recommendations on who is going to win the show and start placing bets. You see, I predicted on episode one of this season’s “America’s Next Top Model” that Analeigh would win and she’s now in the final three — if I had only trusted my instinct and bet on her at Bodog.com, I could be on the way to winning, like, $1000. So trust my instincts. Keep reading »

    Most Surprising Kindred Spirit
    Astrosexologist Kiki T from “Is Cindy McCain Cheating On Her Maverick?”
    We Frisky gals love trampy pill poppers, but sometimes we’re even surprised by who can inspire us:

    “Wow, that Cindy is wild. Between her pill popping and now an affair with an ’80s washed up rock star, I’m beginning to like her!”

    Yeah, Cindy McCain probably masturbates to hair metal ballads too! Can’t you just hear John asking her to turn the volume on that rock ‘n’ roll racket down? Keep reading »
