Nothing causes more boners than an action movie — especially when it stars a femme fatale who knows how to handle a gun. Everyone loves a sharp shootinâ€™, straight talkinâ€™ lady whose looks alone could kill, but itâ€™s even better when sheâ€™s actually a trained lethal weapon. In honor of the women who inspire us to fight for our rights (and wear something skin tight), here are The Friskyâ€™s Top 5 Female Action Heroes.
5. Jane Fonda as Barbarella Sheâ€™s bold, sheâ€™s blonde, and she wonâ€™t take no for an answer. The stylish mod manhandler battles her way through the universe with a dozen outfits and one ray gun. Keep reading »
If you think the premise of the movie Made of Honor (bride’s best friend is a guy, and bride asks him to be her maid of honor) is a bunch of hooey, you thought wrong. Non-traditional wedding traditions, including asking a guy to be the man of honor, are becoming more common, according to WeddingChannel.com senior editor Christa Vagnozzi. In a poll by the website, 63 percent of brides said they’d ask their best friend to be a bridesman/man of honor if that person were a guy. This creates an added dilemma, however. What does a bridesman wear? Certainly not a chartreuse silk dress. “When it comes to what to wear, a bridesman should wear a tie, pocket kerchief, and boutonniere to match the bridesmaid dresses and bouquets,” WeddingChannel.com fashion expert Mara Urshel said. “As for the groomswoman, it’s best if she wears the same color as the bridesmaids, but not the same dress nor the same flowers.” Keep reading »
Isn’t it funny how some things never change? Stephen Colletti is one of those things. He still chews gum like a lazy, chill surfer bro, he still talks in broken slang, and he still looks like he’s 14. An adorable, sexy 14, but still…he’s 23. Anyway, Stephen tooks LC to dinner and they exchanged a lot of knowing looks, memories of Laguna Beach, and the usual “you’ll always be such a good friend”-nonsense. I have a feeling Stephen needed a job after his meal ticket, Hayden Panettiere, dumped him. But still, he’s fine to look at! Clip above! Keep reading »
Havin’ no luck pickin’ up fellas? Check out the latest study by Menâ€™s Health magazine. Theyâ€™ve ranked sex in cities across the country so you can see how your town stacks up when it comes to getting down and dirty. Here’s a teaser: the most sexed city is Indianapolis, while the least sexed is Lexington, Kentucky. I’m sad because New York was a pitiful 71 out of 100. Keep reading »
Not having health insurance makes life expensive — either you pay hundreds every month so you have insurance, or you risk it and pay tons in hospital bills when you get hit by a cyclist going 40 mph. However, some people think they have found the answer to this money-sucking problem: marriage! In a survey commissioned by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 7 percent of Americans said they or someone in their household decided to marry in the last year so they could get health care benefits via their spouse. No word yet on the divorce rates for these “health-insurance marriages.” [Los Angeles Times] Keep reading »
Last night The Bach took the remaining three women to Barbados for individual dates and time in the “Fantasy Suite”. Chances are, they all probably has sex with him, but in the end, Blahmanda wasn’t good enough and was sent packing. KNEW IT! Shayne and Chelsea remain. I suspect that the Bach really loves Chelsea because he keeps putting up with her reserved crap, but I’m still hoping Shayne pulls out the win. In the clip above, “actress” Shayne shows Matt how kissing is done in the movies. [ABC: The Bachelor] Keep reading »

With massages, special yoga sessions, and concierge services available to them, being a pregnant lady in this day and age doesn’t seem like it would be that bad. And mothers-to-be are catching on that it’s wise to pamper yourself while you’re pregnant, because once you give birth, there will be no pampering, only sleepless nights. Nearly 60 percent of couples surveyed said they went on a “babymoon” before becoming parents, according to a 2005 online poll sponsored by Liberty Travel and BabyCenter.com, and some food-delivery services bring fresh meals to pregnant women’s doorsteps to ensure they’re getting the nutrients they need without having to weave a cart through a crowded grocery store. However, none of this pre-baby pampering seems to help once the baby comes out: “The arrival of a baby is a shock to anyone’s system, regardless of the amount of pampering they engaged in pre-baby,” psychologist Deborah Roth Ledley said.

This British soul band has been described as sounding “like Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Pusherman’ resurrecting Led Zeppelin and the exiled spirit of Cassius Clay” making it hard “not to fantasize about Pam Grier fighting off her pimp with a broken bottle.” Heavy, indeed. Their debut record, Great Vengeance & Furious Fire came out in the U.S. on April 8th and they launch on U.S. tour in May. But if you’re freaks for the HBO show Californication than The Heavy probably caught your ear when their song “That Kind Of Man” came blaring out of the stereo when David Duchovny’s character Hank Moody took a Porsche — and a Porsche sales rep — for a ride. Check out their list of songs for those times when love has really got you down. Keep reading »
