Forever 21 Wants To Shut Down Blogger … For Making Fun Of Forever 21

It’s often the biggest companies that have the tightest reign on their public perception — and inexpensive clothing company Forever 21 is no exception. Despite their public image of being young and fun (and, oh, totally Christian), the company is really, really up in arms over WTForever21, a funny blog that chronicles the hits and misses that come out of what blogger Rachel Kane calls the “shame factory.” Forever 21 sent Kane a cease and desist letter in April, claiming that she was violating copyright and trademark laws, even though Kane clearly states on the homepage, “Just FYI, The term ‘Forever 21′ is a trademark of Forever 21, Inc. This site is not affiliated with Forever 21, Inc.” Keep reading »

A “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” Reunion

MTV wasn’t the only cable network to hold an award show this weekend. On Saturday night, Spike TV threw its annual Guys Choice Awards with heavy hitters like Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johansson, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and Mark Wahlberg in attendance. We, the viewing public, won’t get to see the show until Friday night at 10 p.m. But there is one moment I am really excited about. Apparently, the show boasts a “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” reunion. Even Sean Penn agreed to be part of the festivities, joining director Amy Heckerling and castmates Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer, and Forest Whitaker as Robert DeNiro inducted the iconic high school tale into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.

15 Celebrities With OCD

Barbara Sinatra married Frank Sinatra twice. And in a new memoir, Lady Blue Eyes: My Life With Frank, she reveals some very interesting details about the “New York, New York” singer. Apparently, he was a total clean freak. “He was a guy who took about 12 showers a day,” she explains. No wonder he always looked so dapper? [NY Daily News]

That level of fixation on being clean sure sounds like a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder. So let’s do it Frank’s way and look at other famous faces who either had obsessive-compulsive tendencies or have been officially diagnosed with OCD.

Worst. Father’s. Day. Gift. Ever.

No, this is the best press release we’ve received as staffers at The Frisky. That one is now the second best. Keep reading »

I Am Never Trying To Skip My Period Again

I have been fascinated by the notion of going without a period since the 8th grade, when I heard about an older, incredibly beautiful girl at my school who didn’t wear underwear. I was a maxi pad user at the time — tampons did not register as an option until 10th grade — so I couldn’t understand how this chick could go panty-less during her monthly flow.

“Where does she stick her pad?” I asked a friend as we sat on the school’s front lawn giving each other hairwraps. (It was a hippie school and it was the early-’90s.)

“Oh, I heard her tell someone that she rarely gets her period because she drinks so much water.” Keep reading »

Beauty Blunder: Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit And Blistex Don’t Mix

Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m obsessed with white teeth. I’ve tried several at-home whitening kits from affordable Crest Whitestrips to the pricier Go Smile. But only Zoom Whitening, which I used under the care of a dentist last year, has given me the pearly whites I desired. Of course the system that gives the best results is pricey, so when I received a Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit in a gift bag, I thought it’d be a cost-effective way to maintain my white smile.

Here’s something else you don’t know about me: I have crazy chapped lips. I started using Blistex recently because it prevents chapped skin from forming on my lips and makes peeling off any skin easy.

But what happened when I combined the Rembrandt teeth bleach with Blistex? A painful chemical burn. Ouch! Keep reading »
