    The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Big Poppa Revealed

    If you’ve been watching “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” then you know that Kim (she’s the white chick with the extensions that look like they’re made out of Barbie hair) has an extremely wealthy, mystery boyfriend. At first we tried to figure out who it could be, but then realized that was a pointless endeavor. Well, we just heard that Big Poppa is a music executive with the initials Q. J. We’re guessing it’s Quincy Jones. This tidbit of info hasn’t been confirmed, yet, but it totally makes sense. I mean, why else would music producer Dallas Austin work with her, even though he hasn’t heard her sing? [Mediatakeout] Keep reading »

    Stylista: Still Not Convinced This Is Worth Watching

    Back in August I told you “Stylista” would be a must-watch for us at The Frisky, but now I’m not so sure. As I watched “ANTM” last night, I was inundated with promos for “Stylista,” and the CW even aired an unnecessary special preview 10 minutes before the show began. I still wasn’t sure I actually wanted to watch it because I don’t think the world needs another reality show in which self-absorbed, talentless bitches compete for a prize that really should go to someone more deserving. I did watch it ultimately because there wasn’t much else on and will now fill you in on the cat fighting and the pointless assistant tasks. Keep reading »

    Comment That Should Get Trademarked
    “Jocelyn Nubel” from “5 Signs You’re Dating Someone Emotionally Stupid”
    Pay attention Library of Congress, because here comes some creative genius:
    “I once told a particularly emo-tarded exboyfriend, “I NO LONGER HAVE THE PATIENCE TO PUSH YOU AROUND IN YOUR EMOTIONAL WHEELCHAIR!!! Sigh. It felt so, so good.”
    That clever cutie is so good at communication that she not only stuck it to her ex-boyfriend, she took the terminology to a whole new level of slang. She popped an emotional wheelie! Keep reading »

    San Francisco Voters To Decide Whether To Decriminalize Prostitution

    It’s easy to forget with a Presidential election as exciting as this one that there are actually many, many, many people and bills on the ballot November 4th besides Barack Obama and John McCain. One of the issues that got our attention early is Proposition K, a San Francisco proposal that would decriminalize prostitution in the city. If passed, the law would forbid local authorities from investigating, arresting or prosecuting anyone for selling sex. The ballot measure still technically would not legalize prostitution since state law still prohibits it, but Proposition K would eliminate the power of local law enforcement officials to go after prostitutes. The local Democratic Party has endorsed the measure, but the majority of actual local government officials are opposed. A similar measure in Berkeley lost in 2006 — while San Francisco is typically a liberal-leaning city, it’s pretty up in the air as to whether this Proposition will pass with voters. If it does, SF will become the first major U.S. city to decriminalize sex work. With that in mind, vote in our poll! [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »

    10 Songs That Objectify Women (That We Really Love)

    We’d like to think we’re bra burning feminists that would be repulsed by songs that refer to a woman’s body parts or her sensual essence, but we’re not. In fact, we’re not even ashamed to admit that sometimes clever lyrics or a banging beat or melody trump our feminist ideals, especially in the club. So we put together a list of songs that objectify women, but are totally on playlists in our iPods. Don’t get mad that we’re not disgusted by these songs, just sit back and let the music move you.
