I am not used to being pursued by men. This is not to say it’s never happened, but the eight and a half years I lived in New York can best be described as an incredibly long dry spell interrupted by too many bad first dates, as many one-night stands, and one seriously flawed serious relationship.
While I know some of the fault lies in my refusal to date actors, bad spellers, or men who work in finance, my sister and I joke that in New York I was fat and average, but in Kansas City I’m hot. Not that there aren’t plenty of attractive women in the Midwest, but New York is a city full of models, actresses, and hundreds of thousands of women who look like models and actresses. Going out in New York in our size-10 jeans, my sister and I concluded after her first visit, was like going to a gay bar anywhere else in the country. Keep reading »
I’m in a constant state of baby fever, which is why I love this video of little Charles-Edward. His parents filmed him using time lapse videography, over the course of a four hour play session. It is ridiculous how much that kid accomplishes. Get ready to “Awwwww….” Keep reading »
While my Jewish grandmother could probably give you a bunch of different reasons why I’m still single, researchers from the Universities of Liverpool and Stirling think they’ve solved my problem. Last week, The Frisky’s resident cutie pie, Catherine, asked us to confess what turns us on. Here’s what I admitted:
“I love a man with scars, especially from acne. I can’t explain the attraction. Sometimes I have to ask myself: ‘Am I into this guy or am I just hot for his acne scars?”
It’s true. My friends tease me like I’m some sort of scar-fetishist because I always go for dudes with “damage.” To them I say the old Apple Jack’s slogan, “Hey, we eat what we like!” I like me a face full of scars and apparently I’m not alone…. Keep reading »
Thanks to the immediacy of Twitter we can find out all sorts of stuff about celebs that the paparazzi and gossipers can’t. We now know that the First Twitter Celeb Couple, Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore, are really irritated by their neighbor’s early morning construction. And all the details leading up to the birth of Erykah Badu’s second daughter were revealed via her baby daddy’s Twitter. She didn’t go to a hospital, but had a midwife, and she didn’t use any drugs. When she was dilated eight and a half centimeters, she felt the urge to push. That last detail was a little TMI, but in case you want to find out all the gory or mundane aspects of your favorite celebrity, check out our list after the jump. Keep reading »

There’s a difference in opinion over whether the groundhog saw his shadow today, which would mean six more weeks of winter. The Pennsylvania-based groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, says that winter isn’t over just yet. The New York City groundhog reportedly did not see his shadow, signaling the end of cold weather. Whichever furry rodent you choose to believe, you’re probably ready for spring and the bright clothes that come with it.
Ladies and Gentlemen, start revving your engines because tonight, RuPaul is coming back to television thanks to LOGO and World of Wonder Productions.

I don’t know about you, but I usually spend Feb. 14 either in a fight with a boy or sulking at home. Valentine’s Day might be the most emotionally charged day of the year, and we are dying to hear about how you’ve spent it over the years (not only because misery loves company — we also still want to believe in love). Over the next couple weeks, we’ll be sharing readers’ stories about wonderful, lovey-dovey, jealousy-inducing Valentine’s Days, as well as V-Days that are so heartbreaking they’re sure to inspire a country song. So, send us your tales — but keep them to 500 words or less, please — and we’ll pick a few of our favorites to post. To submit, just email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Feb. 9, and include either “Best Valentine’s Day” or “Worst Valentine’s Day” in the subject. Keep reading »
