Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we’re showing off our humble abodes. Mine is humble in many ways, but absolutely wonderful in others. For starters, it is on the petite side; like Kate’s, my place clocks in at around 450 square feet, although it’s laid out like a studio rather than a one bedroom.

It’s unclear whether they had one or two drinks, or if alcohol consumption was the cause of the crash. (Dunn did receive a DUI in 2005 after crashing his car just a few miles away, though completed an alcohol education course designed for first-time DUI offenders.)
Since the news was released, there’s been a steady stream of celebrity posts about Ryan on Twitter. After the jump, some of them. Keep reading »
Because Alcide is so hot that he makes my teeth sweat, I was very excited when I saw that Joe Manganiello of “True Blood” was going to be modeling “7 ways to dress for beach-faring weather” in GQ magazine. However, when I went to look at the images, my dude was surrounded by not one but two hot women, one of them naked and wearing a camera around her neck. Sigh. Fantasy over! Keep reading »
Last night on “The Bachelorette,” Ashley Hebert headed to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to whittle her cadre of men down from 11. Thanks to some Muay Thai boxing, a surprise elimination and some Ashley freak outs, it was a pretty darn entertaining episode. After the jump—the good, the bad, and the head-scratching moments.
