Win This! “Bridesmaids Survival Kit” And $100 Cash Card

You do have May 13 marked down in your calendar as the day when “Bridesmaids” hits theaters, don’t you? I saw the movie last night at a screening — one of the perks of my job, gotta say — and while I can’t give too much away (look for our review on Monday!), I will say you will CRACK THE HELL UP. Anyway, I think everyone can agree seeing a movie about bridesmaids is infinitely better than actually being one, but if you’re stuck with the latter, we’ve got the giveaway for you! One lucky reader will score a “Bridesmaids Survival Kit” — stocked with lip balm, mints, comb/mirror, nail files and a shot glass engagement ring — and a $100 Visa cash card, and no, don’t worry, you don’t actually have to be a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding to be eligible.

WIN THIS! Tell us in the comments what your ideal Ladies’ Night Out entails—the most creative and thought-provoking answers will walk away with the “Bridesmaids Survival Kit” and $100 Visa Cash Card. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, 2011. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, May 13. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

“Celebrity Wife Swap” Is Going To Happen

“Celebrity Wife Swap” is going to happen, people: ABC is currently casting celebs for six episodes of “Wife Swap,” the show where two families trade moms and lifestyles for a week. We can probably expect “Celebrity Wife Swap” to be similar—just thinner, richer and most likely more crazy. Keep reading »

A Female Jockey Could Make History At The Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby has been going strong for 136 hat-filled years. But in all those races, a mere five female jockeys have competed—and none of them crossed the finish line first. But this weekend, we’re hoping that Rosie Napravnik, age 23, can change that. Rosie (left) will be rising a horse with the best name ever—Pants on Fire—who has a good shot at winning after taking home the win at the Louisiana Derby. May Kentucky be as lucky a state for Rosie.

Oh, but there are two more interesting ladies hoping for Derby glory—trainers Kathy Ritvo and Kathleen O’Donnell. Keep reading »

On Men Who Like Fat Chicks

“Guys Who Like Fat Chicks.”

I assumed the worst when I read that headline. Can you blame me? As I started to read the Village Voice article about men who are attracted to obese women, I prepared myself to be offended by men who objectify and fetishize a stigmatized, marginalized group of women to get their rocks off. Luckily, what I read was surprisingly respectful and nuanced. Keep reading »

Tech Update: Commenting Almost Back To Normal!

Let me start off by saying how much I appreciate your patience. I know that over the last few months, our tech issues have been varied and vast, for reasons I can’t explain because A) I don’t entirely understand them because I have a silly liberal arts degree and B) it would take too long. But I can report good news and that is that we’ve ironed out most of the issues associated with Disqus, our new commenting system. Comments are now appearing under their correct threads. While the posts still aren’t counting how many comments they’ve gotten — we’re hoping to have that fixed shortly — you can comment and your comment will show up where it’s supposed to, as opposed to under some unrelated post. (If you see otherwise, please let me know!) In the process of fixing the bugs, we did lose some comments left over the last few days and for that we offer our apologies. If you encounter any further problems with Disqus, feel free to leave a comment under this post or {encode=”amelia@thefrisky.com” title=”email me”} directly. Thank you! Keep reading »
