Lucca (And The Rest Of Us) Would Like To Apologize For The Technical Difficulties

Dear Frisky Readers,

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, The Frisky has been down all morning. I’ve noticed because my mom has been yelling at her computer for the last three hours. It is really getting in the way of my nap. Anyway, The Frisky was down for so long due to problems with Amazon’s EC2 cloud service — that’s where The Frisky is currently hosted. I know, I don’t really get it either, but needless to say, what a pain in the ass. You can read more about it here. In any case, we’re now, clearly, back up and running — we’ve found a temporary solution until Amazon gets its shizz together — which is great news for me, because I can go back to bed. Thanks a bunch for your patience!

Love,
Lucca (and the rest of The Frisky staff) Keep reading »

Sunny With A Chance Of Stripes

The ’70s are back in a big way this spring and summer and this cute little sundress from Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson line for J.C. Penney has all the elements. The multi-colored chevron stripes on top give the illusion of a narrow(er) waist, while the vertical stripes on the floaty skirt elongate. We love the vintage vibe of the braided straps and brown belt, plus, we’ve never been able to resist a frock with pockets. Um, and it’s on sale? Consider us sold.

[$34.99 J.C. Penney]

Helen Mirren Positively Growls

Damn you, Helen Mirren, for looking so fine. Mirren proves that wearing leopard-print after 50 doesn’t have to look like some tickety-tackity cougartown tragedy. Here she is at the London premiere of “Arthur” in an animal-print Dolce & Gabbana gown and leather jacket, and it works. How you do sexy so well, lady? [W.E.R.Q] Keep reading »

13 Hot Hollywood Actors Who Got Beefy For Roles

actors beefed up g1 jpg
Ladies, allow me to introduce you to Chris Hemsworth, star of the upcoming film “Thor.” Which guy? You mean, is Chris Hemsworth the guy on the left or the right? Oh, he’s both. On the left, Chris before he beefed up for the role. On the right, Chris after he channeled Cartman from “South Park” and screamed “Beefcake! Beefcaaaaake!” into a mirror while pumping iron. In the end, thanks to a combination of stuffing his gut and lifting weights (if you’re interested in the details, read Men’s Health), Chris gained 20 lbs. of muscle. Look at those guns. Hot. [Huffington Post]

For the most part, Hollywood actors work out. Many of them have nicely maintained physiques on the regular. But even your average Hollywood hottie has to take the muscles up a notch for certain roles. Here are 12 other already drool-worthy actors who beefed up for their craft…

Quickies: Lindsay Lohan Won’t Play Victoria Gotti After All & How Is Willie Nelson Spending 4/20?

  • Oopsies. Lindsay Lohan won’t be playing Victoria Gotti after all. The producer of “Gotti” said “the talks are off” because they couldn’t “reach terms,” i.e. agree on how much she would be paid. He also made a snotty comment about how he only likes to ride “the merry-go-round” with his kids, suggesting LiLo and Co. were difficult to deal with. You don’t say. What a bummer. All of Long Island is in tears! [ONTD, Celebuzz]
  • Justin Timberlake will host the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” on May 21 with Lady Gaga as the musical guest! [Deadline, NY Post]
  • Speaking of Gaga, if you want to listen to Weird Al Yankovic’s cover of “Born This Way,” you have to be able to stomach his nasally voice for longer than seven seconds. (I could not.) [Buzzfeed]

Today’s Lady News: Apparently, Duke Nukem Spanks Women, Too

  • So, allegedly, the new, soon-to-be-released “Duke Nukem Forever” video game doesn’t just involve slapping a woman “to get her to calm down,” but spanking her, too. Now, I’m all for spanking. But I’m for consensual spanking. Honestly, “Duke Nukem Forever” gets more pervy every week. [Kotaku]
  • House Republicans want to use as much as $500,000 of taxpayer money to pay lawyers to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, which is an anti-gay marriage piece of law that codifies marriage as between a man and a woman. Oh, hell no. [Huffington Post]
  • Why are professional athletes curiously silent during Sexual Assault Awareness Month? That’s a gooooood question. [The Grio]
