Is It Dangerous to Have a Skinny Fat Mindset?

In her Newsweek blog “Confessions of a Skinny Fat Person: Let the Fat Wars Begin,” Kate Dailey reveals her annoying skinny fat mindset about weight and its relationship to health. For those of you that don’t know what a “skinny fat” is, it’s a person who is skinny on the outside and fat on the inside. You know…that person with great genes who looks great in their jeans no matter how many bags of Doritos they eat. Because Kate appears to be skinny (she tells us more than once that her ass looks good), that has somehow qualified her to write about obesity and health for Newsweek. After reading “Lessons From the Fat-O-Sphere,” being introduced to the fat acceptance movement, and discovering that her body fat was 30% (critically high), she felt like a fraud. And the true question finally dawned on her “is it about weight or about health?” Duh. It’s about health. And then she realized how much this country hates fat people. Again…duh. Keep reading »

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Are, Like, Official Now

I hate it when celebrities think they can fool the public. Jessica and Nick not getting divorced? Yeah, right. Angelina and Brad not a couple? Good one, guys. So earlier this year, when rumors began to surface that LeAnn Rimes was doing the horizontal polka with Eddie Cibrian, her co-star in the lame Lifetime movie “Northern Lights,” we all shook our heads while both parties vehemently denied that anything was going on between them. I mean, they were both happily married to other people, so it couldn’t be true, right? RIGHT? That gig sort of worked, until Us Weekly posted a video that showed the pair kissing after a dinner together. Then Eddie’s wife left him. And People reported that LeAnn was no longer living with her hubby, Dean Sheremet. Now, how many months later, LeAnn and Eddie are finally ready to admit that they are actually together. A real shocker, right? Recently, they’ve gone on some very public dates, including one at a concert and another at the Valencia Country Club, where they flirted and golfed. Now, Eddie has, courteously, filed for divorce from his wife, Brandi, who said, “He’s just somebody I don’t know.” Conveniently, the divorce papers come right as news breaks that Rimes and Cibrian are taking off to Mexico for a romantic getaway.

So what do you think? Should celebrities just give up the denial game when the tabloids surface something about them that they were hoping to keep private? Keep reading »

Are Distressed Jeans Ever Worth The Money?

Do you guys remember when Guess jeans cost, like, $40 and your mom was all, “Sorry kid, I’m not made of money, forget about it,” and stuff? Around the same time, jeans of the hole-y on purpose, paint splattered and bleached variety started popping up? Newspapers like The Daily Mail, Houston Chronicle and the Washington Times have all recently confirmed what fashion insiders knew already: the new old jean is back (or something like that).

We’re fine with the ’80s being all totally awesome again, but the fact that all this distressed denim is way more expensive than ever makes us feel barfy. It’s absurd! Keep reading »

Stalk Your Ex-Girlfriend? There’s An App For That!

“What’s great about the iPhone is if you want to know where your ex-girlfriend is at any moment, there’s an app for that!” Check her personal calendar, pester her with “automatic late night calls” every 15 minutes, and “if you need an attorney with a proven record for fighting restraining orders, there’s an app for that!”

It’s clever, but it’s hard to giggle about psychos with restraining orders. What do you think: funny iPhone spoof or stalker-y awkward humor? Keep reading »

Look! A Woman With Two Vaginas!

Have you ever imagined what your sex life might be like if you had two vaginas? Hmmm … double the vaginas, double the pleasure, right? Not, according to 28-year-old Brit Lauren Williams, who actually had two vaginas. After getting tired of tending to her 21-day period (OMG, kill me now), she suspected something might be wrong with the lady bits and went to get it checked out. After a lot of confusion and misdiagnosis, her vagina’s double life was revealed. She had two of everything—two vags, two uteri, two cervixes. Evidently, this is a rare disorder called a “bicornuate uterus.” Lauren was shocked; she had never noticed before, nor had her doctors or boyfriends. But why would her boyfriends have said anything—each of her two vaginas was very small if you know what I’m sayin’. Lauren underwent surgery to remove the barrier between her vags, leaving her with one giant vagina. A happy ending … I guess? I bet OctoMom is jealous.

The Frisky Guidebook: The Mile-High City

Maybe it’s the altitude. Or all the hard-bodied, active, young folks sauntering around. Or maybe it’s the fact that the city is exactly one mile high. Regardless, Denver has come into its own as a city that demands the nation’s attention (perfectly proven by the recent kick-ass DNC event). If you’re lucky enough to visit D-Town, don’t just hotfoot it to the mountains; take a few days to explore the city. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to discover why the natives like to do it at 5,280 feet. Keep reading »

Jason Biggs Gets Attacked By A Monkey (Seriously)

Come on, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write about a C-lister (D-lister?) getting attacked by a monkey, could I? So, Jason Biggs, he of “American Pie” fame, was on a European vacation with co-star Eddie Kaye Thomas, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the film that made them famous — or at least rich enough to not work (much) for a decade. That’s kind of funny enough — really, who goes on a vacation to celebrate the anniversary of a movie? — but what happened while the twosome was hiking through the woods in Gibraltar could have been a scene from the comedy they starred in together. There they were, minding their own business in the woods, maybe even reciting favorite quotes from “American Pie,” when suddenly, a Barbary macaque — a local monkey commonly referred to as the Barbary ape — “lept on Jason from a tree and tried to bite his face off.” Fortunately, Eddie was able to fend off the ape, but Jason was so shaken up he canceled the rest of his vacation and headed back to the U.S., where his seemingly biggest threat is getting caught with pie on his balls. In all seriousness, we’re glad Jason is OK. [via Telegraph] Keep reading »

11 Celebs We Want To Ban From Breeding

Our worst nightmare has come true. No, it’s not the apocalypse—it’s spawning season for Heidi and Spencer Pratt. People announced that the next season of “The Hills” will have some changes, including this gem: “Heidi and Spencer are entering some interesting new territory of considering parenthood.” [People]

Noooooooooo! I guess it was inevitable, but do Barbie and Kendouche really have to procreate so soon? I bet they’ve already sold the rights to their unborn baby pictures and I have no qualms saying I think these two should be involuntarily sterilized. They’re Aryan super-villains with a plan to take over the media and they must be stopped! After the jump, 10 other celebrity couples who must be stopped from breeding. Keep reading »

“Heathers” The TV Show: Our ’80s Prayers Have Been Answered!

Corn Nuts! I am literally shaking with excitement over the news that “Heathers” is being revamped into a TV show. The 1989 movie, the ultimate high school revenge fantasy, elevated Winona Ryder to star status as she tried to fit in with her school’s mean girls, all named Heather. (The best: Heather Chandler, played by pre-”90210″ Shannen Doherty). Until J.D. (a hot Christian Slater) rolled into town and made her his accomplice in murdering the cool kids in school and making ‘em look like suicides. “Heathers” remains one of my top five favorite flicks of all time, and I have a feeling a show based on it could be very, very good—like “Gossip Girl” with a dark comedy twist. Jenny Bicks, a “Sex and the City” writer, is also executive producing. And the word on the street is that Winona and Christian may even be reprising their bad-ass roles. Prepare your croquet mallets and start singing “Que Sera Sera.” [Press Association] Keep reading »
