Anne Shirley Said It Best

One of our favorite books growing up — oh, heck, it’s still on our bookshelf — is L.M. Montgomery’s Anne Of Green Gables. Anne Shirley, the spunky and idealistic orphan with red braids, is an eternal kindred spirit for every Frisky gal. “Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it” is one of our favorite quotes, aptly summing up Anne’s refreshing outlook on life, despite her early circumstances. This print, featuring Ann-with-an-E’s wise words, will be a helpful reminder to look on the bright side the next time you’re having a rotten day.

Movie Trailer Mash-Up: “Friends With No Strings Attached Benefits”


For months and months now, various blogs, including The Frisky, have pointed out the incredible similarities between the movies “No Strings Attached” (currently out on DVD) and “Friends With Benefits” (coming out July 11). Two attractive, urban twentysomething friends start having casual sex and deal with the hilarious consequences. These two films even fought over the title “Friends with Benefits,” with the Justin Timberlake/Mila Kunis vehicle winning out over Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher‘s. Well, The Blind Film Critic has proved just how much these two films have in common with this mash-up trailer. I’m a sucker for a cheesy rom-com — especially if it’s based on a classic book I am too brain-dead to read (jusssssst kiddddding!) — so even though I saw “No Strings Attached,” I’ll see “Friends With Benefits,” too, especially since Justin and Mila seem to have better chemistry.

Charlize Theron Isn’t Interested In Marriage, Is In Favor Of Marriage Equality

“I don’t … I treat my relationships like marriages, I really do … I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships. That’s the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.”

Charlize Theron, appearing on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” on why she’ll never marry. Theron was previously involved in a long relationship with actor Stuart Townsend, but the two were never engaged, and she told Morgan that marriage was “never something that was important [to me].” But even though Theron doesn’t want to walk down the aisle herself, she’s still a vocal advocate for marriage equality. Find out what she has to say about that, after the jump! Keep reading »

Investigators Find Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s Accuser Has Lied About Some Stuff

The hotel maid who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former chief of the International Monetary Fund, of sexual assault has lied to investigators numerous times about her past and has some dodgy connections to a drug dealer, according to a bombshell New York Times story published last night. The woman’s inconsistencies about her personal life — like telling investigators that she sought asylum in the United States because she was a victim of female genital mutilation in Guinea, which is not what it says in her asylum application — should in no way detract from her accusation that Strauss-Kahn assaulted her in his New York City hotel room and forced her perform oral sex on him. Initial reports of the hotel maid’s behavior after she was allegedly attacked — she was found crying in the hallway by another employee, she vomited, etc. — are common-sense consistent with how someone may act after a sexual assault. But it is all too easy to see how his defense attorneys will spin this: if the alleged victim is not credible about other things, who’s to say she isn’t lying now? Keep reading »

A Brief History Of Fuzzy Math In Popular Music

Beyonce, "1 + 1"

The Frisky staff is thoroughly enjoying Beyoncé‘s new album, 4. In fact, we spent the majority of yesterday jamming to it and, as we listened, we found ourselves especially drawn to the song “1 + 1,” which includes the line, “I don’t know much about algebra/ but I know one plus one equals two.” Correct, Beyoncé! But, really, why rest on that base knowledge? As a proud math nerd—and former mathlete—I’d be happy to teach you about polynomials and vectors anytime. Algebra ain’t so scary.
