Knowd: Simply Irresistible
Johnny Depp as John Dillinger in “Public Enemies” says he likes good clothes and movies, among other things. And so do we. We’re not only excited to see this historical drama about the infamous bank robber, but we also want to dress in ’30s style outfits. Gloves, longer hems, and the return of the natural waist were key to the fashions of that decade. We couldn’t raid the costume closet of Marion Cotillard, who plays Dillinger’s love interest Billie Frechette, so we came up with our own outfits inspired by “the movie.”
Before he dated Fergie, Josh Duhamel dated Danielle Staub… on “All My Children” that is. The “Real Housewife of New Jersey” who fought off the release of a sex tape last week now has her soap opera stint circulating around the web instead. While she doesn’t really do much but sit there and look pretty. It’s good to see that the woman actually did something besides take part in more than alleged drug trafficking and kidnapping plots. That’s more than I can say for Dina. Keep reading »
When you threw your cheatin’ man out on his ass, we thought you were pretty awesome, Jenny Sanford. But now you’ve opened your mouth and said the GAYS are to blame for the moral decay in this country that led your husband, Gov. Mark Sanford, to stray from you with Argentine lover, Maria Belen Chapur and try to cover it up with some b.s. story about hiking the Appalachian trail. Keep reading »
We at The Frisky love of all of your comments. Truly, there is nothing like checking your crackberry in the morning and getting an email declaring five people have commented on your post. Not that your comments aren’t enough for us, but we thought that, in honor of Independence Day, we ought to check in with the Founding Fathers to see what they think of The Frisky. It wasn’t easy, trust me. The seances were a breeze, but for all the talk of them being great intellectuals and brainiacs, they had a super tough time grasping the inherent social intricacies of Facebook and don’t even get me started on the debacle of explaining Twitter. Still, a couple friendings and tweets later, I guided them through the tricky waves of the blogosphere and to the ultimate destination of The Frisky. They loved us, more or less. Hear their praise and criticism after the jump. Keep reading »
Dan Choi is a lieutenant in the U.S. Army who graduated from West Point. He served in Iraq, is willing to go back, and is an Arabic language specialist. Sounds good, right? Well, apparently Choi is not good enough for the military, because after he admitted he was gay on the “Rachel Maddow Show” on March 19th, the army sent him a letter, officially discharging him. According to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Policy,” which Obama has vowed to change, admitting that you are gay “constitutes homosexual conduct.” The army accused Choi of “moral or professional dereliction.” Choi plans to fight the decision and a campaign has already been launched to help him out.

It’s hard to go more than a few months in the United States without a juicy cheerleading scandal. (Don’t believe me? Check out my book CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders.) Today, a case in Oklahoma is eerily reminiscent of Wanda Holloway, the infamous Texas cheer mom who tried to have her daughter’s cheer rival offed in the 1990s. Find out what happened this time time around, after the jump… Keep reading »
At first there were butterflies. David and I decided to move in together, the first step towards what I hope will be a long and loving life at each other’s sides.
And then I started thinking about how I am so OCD that I need to dry my body and my hair with separate towels. How I don’t want anyone using my fancy Bliss hand lotion to jerk off. How, most of the time, I prefer reading to talking to people.
My boyfriend is bottomless (well, near bottomless) when it comes to accepting me and loving me for my quirks and foibles. But with all these little realizations, it dawned on me that unless I am OK with being truly wretched and selfish, moving in with my boyfriend means I might have to compromise, change and sacrifice a little independence.

As you might imagine, the tabloids—like every other popular culture venue out there—are flooded with new Michael Jackson conspiracies this week. It seems that they were so distracted with MJ that they decided to give their favorite usual victims—the Gosselins, Speidi, Jennifer Aniston—the week off. I bet they’re all feeling really good about themselves? We scrounge up the new tidbits the tabs spewed this week. Keep reading »
I love reading. I might love it more than orgasms, sleeping or eating. And I will read anything, high or low, because I’ve enjoyed “smart books” like Katharine Graham’s autobiography as much as “trashy books” like The Other Boleyn Sister. I just can’t stand people who get on their high horse and sniff that a 10th grader could have written Twilight. It was a good read—who cares?
I’ve read two novels by Jodi Picoult—My Sister’s Keeper and Nineteen Minutes—which were both three-hanky reads about suburban families with troubled kids (cancer in one, a school shooting in another). But NPR has a different perspective on the Picoult oeuvre. Keep reading »
