I Dream Of Jeannie Coming To Theaters, But Hopefully Not So Sexist?

From Broadway to Hollywood, the entertainment industry is all about remakes. Most of the time, the threat is not staying true to the original (um, the upcoming Smurfs movie that’s going to be live action?!). But in the case of the I Dream of Jeannie remake, our fear is it actually resembling the misogynistic capers of the early 60’s anti-feminist classic. Now, far be it for we NASA-loving Frisky gals to smack talk an astronaut in the space program heyday. However, the fictitious Major Nelson is a totally ungrateful do-bag that Jeannie calls “master.” Ick. Plus Jeannie never gets credit for always saving the day and she clearly runs the show! Although, perhaps there’s hope for the remake to right the wrongs of the antiquated TV show. Slated to write the screenplay is Mulan’s Rita Hsaio. So fingers crossed, she’ll empower this woman too.

Quote Of The Day: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl

Secret Diary of a Call Girl, the new show about a high-class hooker in London, premieres on Showtime next week. The Frisky was lucky enough to get a sneak preview earlier this week, and now you can too (definitely NSFW though) at SHO.com. Here are three of the best lines from the series premiere:

  1. “The first thing you should know about me is that I’m a whore.”
  2. “I always use men’s deodorant, never perfume. A professional never lets her client leave smelling of women.”
  3. “Convince him you’re wet and you’re halfway there.”

To watch the first two episodes of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, visit SHO.com. The series officially airs Mondays at 10:30 pm right after Weeds.[Showtime] Keep reading »

    The Frisky TV: Could You Date Someone With Different Political Views?

    There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.

    Quick Pic: I Spy A Unicorn!

    I’ve got good news for the 8-year-old girl/gay boy inside of all of us. Your parents may have ruined Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and maybe even where babies come from, but they can’t take away the mythical, magical, magnificent Unicorn! It lives! Granted, in captivity, but a beautiful unicorn has been prancing around a nature preserve in Italy. Its mother, who was rescued after being hit by a car, gave birth at the facility to the now 10-month old baby roe deer. While scientists claim the horn is a genetic mutation, this “Unicorn” is still proof of what seemed to be just a fabled fantasy. Here’s hoping there’s a mermaid out there too!

    A Bride Without A Dress Is Like A Desert Without Sand

    A bridal store in Charlotte, NC, went bankrupt and left a bunch of brides without wedding dresses, some just weeks away from getting married. I laughed a little bit because some of the women in the video are crying, but then I thought about how frustrating that would be — not only did they lose “the dress” that they probably spent months looking for, but some spent as much as $5,000 and don’t even have a dress to show for it. Perhaps they should make up their lost money by forgoing a dress and getting married in the nude. [CNN] Keep reading »
