Activia Yogurt Gives Jamie Lee Curtis A Lil’ Surprise

Last week we wrote about Jamie Lee Curtis strippin’ down for the cover of AARP. On Saturday Night Live this weekend, Kristen Wiig spoofed the actress doing an ad for Activia. Activia is that yogurt that’s all the rage cause it makes your bowels regular or something (side note: my soon-to-be-sister-in-law Lauren says that getting regular ol’ live culture yogurt from Whole Foods does the same thing, only better). Anyway, the skit was hysterical, not just because it mocked the ridiculousness of a yogurt that makes your insides rumbly, but also because it pokes fun at Jamie Lee Curtis’ whole “I’m 50, I’m fabulous, I’m naked, I just don’t give a &%$*”-schpiel, which, while probably totally genuine, is getting a little silly and predictable. So what happens when a hyped up Jamie inhales over a dozen Activia yogurts in one day? Check the clip above. Keep reading »

Tina Fey Hits The Newsstand And Faces MILF Island

30 Rock was finally back on TV last night, after the long hiatus during the writer’s strike. We’re thrilled! And so must be the media, because Frisky fave Tina Fey is on two major magazine covers this month, Marie Claire and Entertainment Weekly. (She’s also got the comedy Baby Mama coming out soon, alongside Amy Poehler.) Oh, and on last night’s episode of 30 Rock, Liz Lemon was disgusted by the network’s latest hit, MILF Island. See what it’s all about, after the jump. Keep reading »

Man Or Woman Game

Not sure if that mystery hottie messaging you on MySpace is really a cute guy or an old lonely woman with 50 cats that just likes to role-play? A new website program called the Gender Genie claims it can tell whether someone is a man or woman by their writing. Using algorithms developed by Moshe Koppel at Bar Ilan University and Shlomo Argamon from Illinois Institute of Technology, the site decodes any passage by any author and makes its determination instantly. Although I’ve always wanted a penis of my very own, when I checked my last blog post about Dick Cheney, it said I was a overwhelmingly a dude. Huh. This just further proves my theory that I’m actually a drag queen trapped in a woman’s body. [Gearlive]

Postpartum Depression Is As Common As Not Having A Landline

As many as one in five women in the U.S. suffers from postpartum depressive symptoms, according to a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. To tell whether you might have symptoms, answer these questions: 1) Since your baby was born, how often have you felt down, depressed, or hopeless? 2) Since your new baby was born, how often have you had little interest or little pleasure in doing things? If you answered “always” or “often” to either question, you might want to get yourself checked out.

Disney Shows Get Girls Interested In Bad Boys Awfully Early

Last night I went to dinner with a friend and her adorable four-and-a-half year old daughter Eva. I was pleasantly mortified to discover that Eva and I shared the same taste in music — we’re both really into Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana. I swear, as I get older, my taste in music gets more juvenile. Anyway, Eva and I dished for a while about Miley, That’s So Raven, and Zach and Cody (two other shows on the Disney Channel), before her mom and I started discussing the weird values these shows start ingraining in the little ones before they’re even old enough to read. For example, Zach and Cody are twin brothers — one of them is the smart, nerdy, “good” one, while the other is wild, naughty, and a bit of a bad boy — naturally, many, many little girls are known to like the bad boy best. Isn’t it weird how pop culture tries to get you to choose between them before you’re even in puberty? Keep reading »

Cheney Cruises The Snake River

Did you know Dick Cheney can smile? A picture of the Vice President cracking a smirk while “fly fishing” was posted on sportsshooter.com and it has more hits than Mariah Carey — about 130,000 as of last night, according to Google. But it isn’t his pearly whites that people are interested in, it’s what appears to be a naked lady reflected in his sunglasses. His spokeswoman Meagan Mitchell claims he was cruising on the Snake River (no joke) and added, “Clearly the picture shows a hand casting a rod.” No comment! [McClatchyDC.com]

Men Rule, Girls Drool, Blah, Blah, Blah

We’ve heard some dumb things said on Dr. Phil, but his recent guest Dick Masterson takes the cake. Trust us, his name is no misnomer. He’s the chauvinist who runs MenAreBettertThanWomen.com and he goes around spouting gems like, “How is prostitution illegal but alimony isn’t? They’re basically the same thing. You’re paying for the whore to leave.” Honestly, how much would it cost to get rid of him? We’ll start chipping in immediately. [YouTube]

The Daily Squeeze: Carla Bruni’s Increasing Value, Video Games, And A Sick Hamster

  • A nude photo of French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy from 1993 sold at Christie’s auction house yesterday for $91,000 — more than 20 times its expected price. And Carla has improved her Amazon.com sales rank significantly since we first reported on her relationship with Nicolas. Back in December, her album No Promises was 12,718, while today it’s 5,035.

    Kids Who Have Sex Young Don’t Use Much Contraception

    We could never figure out why Jamie Lynn Spears didn’t just go on birth control when she decided to start having sex. Yes, it’s totally possible that she was on the pill and didn’t take as directed — eight out of 100 women will get pregnant each year if they don’t follow the instructions — but a survey by the Crisis Pregnancy Agency in Ireland found that first sex among adolescents was linked to low use of contraception (and high levels of regret).
