Demeter, the super cute line of highly specific single-note fragrances (you may remember them for creating timeless classics such as Dirt and Play-Doh), will now be made available to the masses via CVS drugstores. Their library contains over 250 fragrances. So, for this launch they’ve whittled down the options and will sell Baby Powder, Pure Soap, Patchouli, Honeysuckle, Laundromat and Lilac. It’s sad if you don’t see your favorite listed, but here’s the good news: While they’re usually sold for $10-$20, you can score them at CVS for $6-$10. How very, um, “recessionista” of them.

Because I’ve been single for so long, my married friends often like to give me unsolicited advice. “I know what your problem is!” Elinor had a sudden revelation as her newborn baby suckled at her breast. Now that she is a wife to a man and a mother to a boy, her new favorite thing is to live vicariously through my love life. But what seems titillating to her is just plain old depressing to me.
“What is it?” I replied.
“You need to start dating men.” Keep reading »
Megan Fox‘s “Jennifer’s Body” came out last weekend, bringing writer Diablo Cody back into the spotlight we left her in, covered in rotten tomatoes from irate “Juno” haters. Sure, there is “The United States of Tara,” but Toni Collette won that Emmy for a reason: She’s working with so little. But so far, there’s been tentative praise for the horror/comedy “Jennifer’s Body,” where Cody’s quirky dialogue fits right in amongst the bloodshed. Think “Heathers” meets “Rosemary’s Angry Teenage Daughter.”

Stop the divorce presses! We’ve heard via Popeater that Jon Gosselin has had a change of heart and now no longer wants to divorce Kate, who just a few weeks ago he accused of verbally abusing him and said he “despised.” Jon’s lawyer has put in a request that the divorce be stalled for 90 days. “I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated…I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon,” he’s supposedly told In Touch magazine. “[This time will] enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication…Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family—not destroy it.”
I don’t know, buddy. The skeptic in me says that the media frenzy has died down and he got the word that TLC was changing the show’s name from “Jon & Kate Plus Eight” to “Kate Plus Eight,” and asked himself, “What can I do to stay in the spotlight? Begging for forgiveness could work.” [In Touch via Popeater] Keep reading »

My love-hate relationship with “The Tyra Show
” strikes again: Yesterday Tyra
hosted her first-ever Teens and Parents: Sex Summit
all about teen sex
. Alas, calling it a “summit” is a rather grand way to describe 13-, 14- and 15-year-old girls dishing about the dozens of boys they’ve slept with, while their moms sit backstage doing the face-palm reaction.
Throughout her show, Tyra shared little tidbits of information with the audience about what the kids are up to these days, like having sex in public places (79 percent) or hooking up with two people in one night (58 percent). Wowza! Where did she get these so-called “stats”? They were gleaned from visitors to Tyra’s website who filled out a survey about teen sex, with questions seemed more designed for shock value than usefulness, like, “Have you ever had sex on your parents’ bed?” Keep reading »
All of us at The Frisky must be feeling pretty sassy on this second to last day of September, because we all posed with at least one hand on a hip. Does wearing any particular outfit put extra pep in your step?
Your iPhone just became cooler than you are.
Thanks to AnOther magazine, Gareth Pugh, and Incase, now not only your 3G phone but also your 13” MacBook can be swathed in designer products. Because obviously your Apple products need some fashion love, too. The laptop holder is made from thick PVC, with quilted satin inside. It retails for 76 pounds, which is basically $121; the iPhone case, however, is slightly more affordable at 53 pounds or about $84. Up to you whether your device has been good enough to deserve designer goods.
Head over to shop.anothermag.com this weekend, or if you’re one of the lucky few at Paris Fashion Week, then make sure to stop at Colette to pick up your iPhone’s first Pugh. [Fashionista]
