Be My Boyfriend: Guy Who Demanded He Be Allowed To Wear Spaghetti Strainer In His License Photo

Hey there, Niko Alm. I really love that you were so adamant about wearing a spaghetti strainer in your driver’s license photo that you fought for three years to obtain the right. You even claimed to be a follower of “Pastafarianism,” and submitted to a mental health test to make sure that you were competent enough to drive. It turns out you were, and that strainer does really make the outfit. Let’s go on a date — you can drive. [NPR] Keep reading »

Does Bingham Hawn Bellamy Have A Nice, Uh, Ring To It?

Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy have finally decided on a name for their newborn son — Bingham Hawn Bellamy! “Bing” for short, naturally. I’m suddenly nostalgic for the days when we thought it was strange that Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter after a piece of fruit. I suppose Bing isn’t as strange a name as, say, “Pilot Inspektor” (that’s the name of Jason Lee’s kid), and there are famous Bings in the world, like Bing Crosby. I love that his middle name is in honor of his Grandma Goldie. Bingham … Bing Hawn Bellamy … I’m warming up to it. Thank god. Anyway, little factoid for the new parents — the URL “Bing.com” is already taken. Bummer. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Jerry Seinfeld Performs A “Comic Intervention” On Jon Stewart

Everyone in the media has been scratching their heads on how to write about Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s bigotry towards gays and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s work “treating” gays in so-called “ex-gay therapy.” He apparently said gay people are “barbarians” that need to be “educated” and “disciplined.” Do we report this as straight news? Blow a gasket over how cruel and dehumanizing they are? Even Jon Stewart struggled with how to report on Marcus Bachmann on last night’s episode of “The Daily Show.” That’s when Jerry Seinfeld came to the rescue and prescribed a spoonful of “ex-comic therapy.”

What’s Your Morning Routine?

Our morning routines are all so individuated and specific and weird. Like for instance, I can’t get my day started without spending at least 20 minutes in bed with my cats. It’s not my decision — it’s up to Pony and The Colonel (the cats, you know). I also NEVER eat breakfast at my house. Weird, right? So, I decided to ask the rest of The Frisky staff how they get their days going — and I want to hear about yours, too. Tell us about your morning routine — and your must-have products — in the comments! Keep reading »

Olivia Wilde Says Her Divorce Has Made Her A Better Actress

“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it … ["House" creator David Shore] said ‘You should get divorced every year; your acting’s never been better!’”

—Olivia Wilde talks at length about her divorce in the new issue of Marie Claire and says that while she and ex Tao Ruspoli are on great terms, their breakup has been rough on her. But it she sounds like she has good perspective on things and has been able to make lemonade out of these lemons. And that’s pretty cool. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »
