Meghan McCain came out swinging at Barack Obama on a recent visit to “The Tonight Show.” The daughter of re-elected Arizona Senator John McCain stopped by Jay Leno’s couch to promote her new book, Dirty Sexy Politics. A mere 45 seconds in, she criticized Obama for doing an interview on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” which aired on Election Day, to urge young people to vote. “If I were President Obama I would be very nervous and not necessarily doing serious interviews with Ryan Seacrest,” Meghan sniped. “I would be a lot more concerned with what the American public was thinking.” Keep reading »
If you thought this fall/winter was gnarly before, get ready for it to get a whole lot worse: This weekend saw the end of Daylight Saving Time, which means we’ll lose another hour of sunlight. For some, that’s no big deal, but for the rest of us, it means we’ll need to hunker down and make a plan.
After the jump, some great winter blues advice, straight from you, dear Frisky readers. Keep reading »
The next time you think you’re weird or kinky or especially twisted in bed, think of Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei. He’s the younger brother of the Sultan of Brunei and apparently quite the perv. The prince allegedly had six life-size erotic sculptures of himself made, along with sexy sculptures of his fiancee, who is part of his harem. Yes, we said harem. The statues were discovered at the Prince’s Long Island estate, which is currently in litigation after two of the Prince’s advisers sold the property for much less than he believed it was worth. In the photos we’ve seen, the erotic sculptures include perfectly molded jean shorts (so, kinky and unfashionable). As you can imagine, the Prince is trying to keep images and mention of the sculptures out of the press — and out of his court case. No such luck. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
There are some things you shouldn’t let in your house: a gang of rowdy teenagers, an axe murderer, and definitely not a bison. And yet! Jim and Linda Sautner of Alberta, Canada, have indeed adopted a pet bison that lives with them indoors. Bailey Jr. hangs out in the house, drinks water from the kitchen sink and does all manner of domesticated animal things. Jim says he still hasn’t housebroken Bailey Jr. (big shocker), which is a fair reminder that just because you CAN have a bison as a pet doesn’t mean you should. [CNN

Finally, the 15 pounds you pack on as a freshman in college is good for something! According to The Daily Beast, colleges across the country have started offering Fat Studies classes. Hip, hip, hippy hooray! Akin to Women’s Studies classes, Fat Studies classes seem to be preaching to the choir, i.e., people who have struggled with their weight, whether they have had eating disorders or are my peeps, the fatties. But the academic study of sociological weight issues is the next phase for the fat acceptance movement, which has steadily risen in membership since the ‘90s, thanks to activist groups like NAAFA (National Association To Advance Fat Acceptance). I’ve been a proud member/bikini model for four years running! Keep reading »
