Check out Showtime’s advertisement for the upcoming season of Weeds alongside their new show, British import The Secret Diary Of A Callgirl. Mary-Louise Parker is sublime and we’re super psyched about the latter. Yay! New TV! Keep reading »
An 18-year-old boy in Texas thought he was being all stealth, sneaking into his girlfriend’s house for a surprise hook-up. Instead, he got two black eyes from her father, who thought he was a burglar, and was charged with burglary and assault. The funny part is that his girlfriend (who is 15, by the way) wasn’t even there — she was sleeping over at a friend’s house. Ha. [AHN] Keep reading »
We here at The Frisky are really into music and reading. Sometimes ours tastes are, um, awesome and we want to share them with you. Sometimes our tastes are terrible (ahem, Sophie Kinsella books and Ashlee Simpson singles), so we’ll probably keep those to ourselves. But after the jump, Emily, Simcha, Catherine, and myself share the cool stuff we’re into this month. Keep reading »
Rihanna’s new single “Take A Bow” is not a song you’re going to be dancing to — unless you’re in seventh grade and find yourself swaying back and forth awkwardly with a scrawny tween boy. But Rihanna is so lovable and lovely that Nathan and I couldn’t resist watching the song’s video together. We agree that she’s fierce but want different things from her. Me? Well, I want to be her.
Nathan: Why is she looking at her nails?
Catherine: Her nails are too long. Like old lady nails. Keep reading »
A Gawker tipster informs the website that if you go to your Facebook page, click on the search field, and then hit the down arrow key, a list of five people with appear. Who are those five people? So far, most people seem to be speculating that they are either the five people you search for/click on the most, the five people who search for/click on you the most, or the five most recent people you’ve clicked on. I tested the final theory by clicking on someone not in my five, but my list still didn’t change. That said, I kind of don’t want to believe that the people most obsessed with me on Facebook include a guy friend, two coworkers (Catherine and Emily — thanks gals), a guy I hooked up with years and years ago, and a random friend who I never talk to. That is depressing. Catherine’s five, on the other hand, is made up of three dudes she’s hooked up with, a guy we bowled against, and me. She is so pimp.
UPDATE: This little trick is no longer working. A Facebook insider told Gawker that the canned response from FB about this is: “The five friends that you see below the search box are populated based on people whom we think you’d be most interested in. Taking into account various factors, we attempt to make an educated guess as to who it is you’re looking for when you start typing a name in the search box. Please note that this information is only visible to you and will not be shared with your friends. We hope that this feature is helpful and we appreciate your feedback. Let me know if you have further questions.” Sorry, I call B.S. Why on earth would they conclude that this random chick I never talk to would be someone I’m most interested in? Keep reading »
On Friday, May 30th, shoe stores will be empty, makeup counters customerless, salons won’t have a hair to do, and every man in America will be single for a few hours. It’s opening night of the Sex and the City movie! While looking at all the ads alone can increase your levels of estrogen, and thereby your need for a cosmo, what are the men to do when they have the whole world — sans movie theaters — in the palm of their hands?

How often do you see a commercial for laundry detergent that depicts a father dealing with his son or daughter’s grass-stained clothes? By my calculations, you never do. And this isn’t helping get guys to do laundry or other household chores that are traditionally considered “women’s work.” Men are particularly influenced by the way TV commercials portray them, and 34 percent of them presented them engaged in work behavior, while just 2 percent showed them performing domestic tasks. Women, on the other hand, are least likely to be portrayed working outside the home — only 13.1 percent showed them this way, and 51.5 percent of commercials featuring women focused on selling home products, such as food and cleaners. It’s true that company’s do this for a reason. Women are still the ones buying most of these products. I’m hoping that as people get married later in life, men will start getting used to buying 409 and Clorox wipes and keep doing it when they get married. But then again, I’ve seen my guy friends’ apartments. They may own cleaning products, but they have yet to put them to use. [Newswise] Keep reading »
Remember Craig David? He was that hot, suave soul singer from the U.K. who had a huge hit in 2000 with the song “7 Days”. He hasn’t been big in the U.S. since, but his star has continued to rise in his native country. His newest record, Trust Me, which critics are seriously buzzing about, came out in American on May 6 and the single off of it, “Hot Stuff (Let’s Dance)”, was a Top Ten single in the U.K. We think it’s time for Craig to make a comeback in the good ol’ U.S. And who better than Craig to give us a list of his favorite booty jams — we’ve certainly used his in the bedroom. Playlist, after the jump! Keep reading »
I think we all know by now that The Hills is a semi-scripted reality TV show. Yes, the people are real. Yes, the cameras follow them through the course of their real life. But MTV also creates a storyline and manipulates the real life goings on to meet their storyline’s needs. This season, the story centered around “feminist hero” Heidi, as she took time away from her douchebag boyfriend Spencer so she could focus on herself and her career. On last night’s season finale, MTV basically told the viewers that Heidi had a decision to make between two very different choices — focus solely on her career as a event planner for Brent Bolthouse Productions in Las Vegas or go home with Spencer without even giving her boss notice. Guess which she chose?
