Last weekend, my friend (one of those types who’s an encyclopedia of random knowledge) dropped an interesting fact on me. She said that women who are on Medicaid, the government-issued insurance plan for people who can’t nearly afford medical care, are not covered if they would like to have an abortion. As someone who’s pro-choice, this kind of shocked me. First, because it feels a little bit Big Brother. And second, because if someone qualifies for the program they almost certainly will have a hard time coming up with the quarter-million dollars it takes to financially support a child through age 17. And they may be looking for other options than having a baby.
I had to get to the bottom of this. So I put in a call to my home county’s Medicaid office and after chit-chatting with some well-versed people on the subject in New York state, I’ve got some deplorable facts to report about abortion coverage. Err, termination coverage. The first thing I learned is that Medicaid workers don’t like the word “abortion.” Keep reading »
Got a hot date right after work, but don’t want to go heaving your cleavage across the office all day? Well, the “Faux Camisole” is here to mask your melons ‘til you’re ready to bust them out. The dainty dickey for your titties comes in white and black and buttons right onto your bra. Plus it doesn’t leave that dreaded rolling-up VTL (visible tank top lines) under your outfit. While the product is a good idea, the name could use some pizazz. Don’t you think Boob Blockers or Cleave Covers would fly off the shelves?! Well, no matter what they’re called, for a lucky $13 bucks they’ll keep your jugs safety-sealed until you’re ready to pop out your top. Hey, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, but only when you want to!

Check it out, Frisky readers, Simcha and her amazing grandma Janet
stopped by “The Tyra Show” today to answer audience questions, just like they’ve done in our “Ask Grandma”
video series. Grandma was in top form, looking fab as always (and nursing a vodka on the rocks, natch), while our dear Simcha was as smashing as always. My personal fave moments? When Grandma advocates watching porn in the bedroom and when she gives a shout out to her handsome 94-year-old boyfriend, telling TyTy the two are “having a ball.” We should all
be so lucky! Check out the full appearance above! Keep reading »
Rodarte is designing a line for Target‘s Go International project, allowing us to die happy after purchasing, well, everything the day it’s available on December 20. Because, really, what else is there to live for once you’ve filled your closet with Rodarte for $60 instead of $4,000? We’d sort of resigned ourselves to the idea that Rodarte would always just be a little too cool to be at all accessible, but the 55-piece Target collection plans have proven us wrong and caused us to hold our collective breathe in anticipation.
Rather than focusing on any one specific type of clothing, the line is said to range from knee highs to party dresses to jackets, meaning we could potentially make endless combinations in our online shopping carts as a means of entertaining ourselves. And because Rodarte is Rodarte and, thus, known for their over-the-top-awesome details, you can count on a semi-scaled back interpretation of the same sort of intensity you see in their regular runway shows.
We die. [WWD] Keep reading »
