It’s 2009, bitches, and women are kicking ass and taking names. We’re outpacing men in colleges, running our own companies, and buying our own homes. But there’s one area in which we girls are sorely lacking: sex scandals. Yes, sex scandals. Poor LeAnn Rimes is one of the only high-profile ladies who has been caught cheating and she’s up against infidelity heavyweights like David Letterman, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, and, of course, Tiger Woods. Keep reading »

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t want anyone in this city to have any fun. First, he banned smoking in bars, then trans-fats, then he made all chain restaurants post the number of calories in each item, so that you can’t order the chips and guacamole at Chipotle in peace. Now, the New York Department of Health is taking on soda in these uber-gross PSA
ads that show oozing, dripping fat being poured out of soda bottles before people take a swig. Seriously stomach-turning. Do you think these ads have a point, or do we have bigger fish to fry than folks having a can of Dr. Pepper when they want? Keep reading »

On my way to meet Patti Stanger, third-generation matchmaker and crazy-successful businesswoman, I imagined that she might know of a tattooed, emo millionaire who is just perfect for me. That, of course, didn’t happen. But she did greet me with, “I love The Frisky! I get Google alerts!” Overall, Patti was immaculate, tiny, and well-spoken. Like a Jewish mother, she offered up the sushi on her plate, saying, “Try one. Don’t worry; there are no calories in them!” One thing was exceptionally clear from our chat—home girl is crazy busy these days. She not only stars in but also executive-produces her Bravo show, “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” which begins its third season on January 19. She is still running her now decade-old matchmaking service, Millionaire’s Club, and recently wrote a bestselling book, Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate, out in paperback on December 29. Plus, she has a radio show on XM Pink 24 called “PS I Love You,” every Thursday at 7 p.m. (EST), and has launched her own online dating site, PsXoXo.com.
After the jump, hear what Patti has to say about attracting the right dudes and letting go of the wrong ones. Oh, and the secret to dating in your 20s! Keep reading »
This weekend, after attending a friend’s birthday party, I took a cab with my boyfriend to his apartment. We were drunkish and spent most of the taxi ride chatting and joking around, but at some point, I started smooching a bit on him. Now, I am slightly unusual in that I am not really anti-PDA — I was called out that night, in fact, by the birthday boy for wrapping my legs around my BF’s waist in front of everyone. However, the smooching in the cab was pretty G-rated — no tongue! Even still, our cab driver almost immediately said, “Excuse me. This is a taxi that delivers people to their destinations. This is not a taxi that you can pretend is a hotel.” It was pretty clear he was actually offended by our PDA and I concluded that maybe he was extremely religious and kissing my boyfriend was whoreish or something. Either way, I scooted over to my side of the backseat and behaved myself for the duration of the ride. The BF and I had a good laugh about it later, because neither of us had ever been told to, essentially, “Get a room!” Have you ever been called out for PDA? Keep reading »
Our favorite tell-it-like-it-is Real Housewife, Bethenny Frankel, is the latest to shed her clothes for a PETA ad. This image is stunning and will likely sell many of her Skinny Girl Margaritas. But, uh, can PETA work on getting more dudes for this campaign? Keep reading »
Some gifts suck–thought and all. Men are usually very easy to please, and even when we get something we’re not thrilled with, we’ll rarely complain about it. Still, it’d be nice if we stopped receiving some of these thoughtless, all-too-common gifts.
There’s a well-known cosmetics fact that’s been floating around for years now: Over the course of the average woman’s lifetime, she will inadvertently eat seven pounds of lipstick. SEVEN POUNDS. And as gross as that statistic is, it’s never been more disgusting than as evidenced in this video starring Stevie Ryan and commissioned by natural beauty company Raw. Seriously, you just have to watch it. Now. [Glow
