    Frisky Sweepstakes: Tim Gunn Talking Bobbleheads

    We have a major crush on Tim Gunn. Ever since the first season of “Project Runway” premiered, we have adored the man who advises contestants to “make it work,” even when their designs look like a 2nd-grade art project. Now that season five has ended, we still have “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” to get our weekly Tim Gunn fix, but now we have him whenever we want him because Bravo is selling a Tim Gunn talking bobblehead doll. Buy your own for $24.95. Okay, carry on, people. Keep reading »

    Monday Menage: A Sneak Peak of “Nailin’ Paylin!”

    This weekend Sarah Palin did Saturday Night Live and her Double-D doppleganger did a skin flick for Hustler called “Nailin’ Paylin!” So, how does the porn star stack up next to Tina Fey’s dead-on impression? Well, in this SFW promo interview, Lisa Anne’s busting out of her business suit and cracking us up! Who says porn stars can’t act? She can definitely fake it! Now, if you want to see how Paylin handles foreign affairs, watch her negotiating with two Russian men in our SFW Monday Menage after the jump! Sigh, if only we could solve all our diplomatic problems with a threesome. [Trend Hunter]

    Sarah Palin: The Most Sexist Of Them All

    This weekend, Sarah Palin finally made her much anticipated appearance on “Saturday Night Live”, showing up in two skits written just for her. To tell you the truth, it seemed like the show was actually laughing at Palin rather than with her — the second skit, featuring Amy Poehler rapping, was seriously pretty…insulting. Additionally, the “highlight” of the first sketch was when Alec Baldwin told Palin that she was “hotter in person.” Considering her campaign thought Tina Fey’s portrayal was sexist, it was very interesting that she participated in a comedy routine which only focused on her physical appearance. Personally, this just supports my theory that the most sexist treatment of Palin comes from Palin herself. Keep reading »

    Mad Men: Joan Holloway’s Date Rape Probably Not That Rare

    Last night’s “Mad Men” had an all-too-rare subplot involving Joan and her betrothed, The Handsome Doctor . In a previous episode, Doc’s abusive, douche-tastic tendencies were barely hinted at — “Didn’t you say you were getting me a drink?!” — but this episode confirmed it for any doubters. In one of the most disturbing scenes to have been featured on “Mad Men”, the good doctor forces Joan to have sex with him on the floor of Don Draper’s office despite her repeated protests and attempts to physically dissuade him. Perhaps the saddest and most resonant part of all is when she stops fighting and turns her head to stare fixedly at Don’s coffee table, resigned to her fate. Keep reading »

    The Daily Squeeze: Vacuums, the Spitzer’s Anniversary, Foot Botox, And Scouts’ Lessons

  • Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer and his wife, Silda Wall-Spitzer, celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary on Friday. It seems the two are still together despite his sexual exploits. [Gothamist] Keep reading »
  • Five Reasons You Should Be Watching “True Blood”

    “True Blood” is my favorite new series this TV season. I love the show so much that I actually watch each episode twice — once when it airs on Sunday at 9 pm and again on HBO On Demand in the middle of the week, just to hold me over until the next Sunday. Since I’m the only “True Blood” fan at The Frisky, I thought I’d get on my soapbox and let you in on why you should be watching it. Murder, romance and fantasy after the jump…I love this show!
