Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Forget Vanity Fair‘s International Best-Dressed List of 2009 because The Frisky has its own. Sure, a few of the people are featured on both lists, but we bet you recognize at least 90 percent of the people on our ours. And we aren’t featuring any financiers — you probably can’t say that for Vanity Fair.
A Chinese bride wore what she’s hoping will break the Guinness World Record for longest wedding gown train. Guests spent more than three hours unfurling the 1.2 mile-long train complete with 9,999 silk roses. It was the groom, Zhao Peng, who thought of the idea and says the length and the number of roses could make history. The dress cost around $5,856, so his mother thinks it was a waste of money. But the romantic gesture made his bride laugh and cry. The things some men will do for love. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
If you have any itching and nagging sensations, do not blow them off. There is a reason you are twitching about with this anxiety and although you would like to go into denial about what truth could be staring you back in the face, it won’t go away on its own. If you want any resolution, you’re going to have to be the one to go get it.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Expecting your baby to want the best for you is obvious. This should be the least he provides for you, if he truly wants you to be his #1. Of course, what he thinks is good for you and what you want can be totally opposite. Unless you speak up and share your thoughts, you might be heading into a comical mess that if not caught quickly will turn tragic.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Emotionally, you’ll be feeling stuck. On one hand, you think you are getting what you want. On the other, it’s not exactly as you imagined. While you’re a pro at improv, realize it’ll be how you have to always operate if you want to stay on this current path—but God knows leaving it up to chance isn’t your strong suit. You know it: This week, it’s time to make some real decisions.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Don’t assume anything this week. What you be suspecting has a big chance of being the farthest thing from what your logic might drum up. Instead, be willing to talk everything out to the umpteenth degree, even if you think you are being annoying and too anal. It’ll be worth your while to pay attention to the details — and you have the right to do so.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Your sense of security gets scrutinized and it’ll mean streamlining your finances and getting into a super-practical state of mind. While this is your specialty, this probably won’t be your honey’s specialty. So, with that said, expect those uncomfortable money talks to mar your week with unavoidable stress.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Some compassion towards your boo will go far this week, as softening him into your clutches will make him loopy for anything you say and agreeable to any of your demands. Seems winning power won’t be so hard this week, but only if you make that sweet and loveable side of you last more than just a few hours.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
If you feel as if you’ve been living in rewind mode lately and you can’t seem to get your head out of the past, realize there is a bigger reason for it. There are deeper messages for you to comprehend than just sorting out smiles and sadness from days gone, as in a lesson you learned and forgot, or skipped over, that is going to come back to haunt you now.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Friendship should be the cornerstone to any relationship, and if you can’t have that, then the rest will be impossible to come by. However, if that is all you have and the sexy sparks have died down, that isn’t helping the matter either. Sure, you have someone to show up to parties with and to text you through the day, but is living in an image really that satisfying?
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Keeping a chipper sense of humor will work wonders in charming others to do as you say. As it goes, you will be dealing with an exorbitant amount of nimrods that’ll say the most awkward and irritating things to you, but giving in and letting them get under your skin won’t do you any good. Have fun with it and use your words to play them like the chew toys they are.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Resist over-exaggerating to get your points across, even during moments of the most whacked communications. Overcompensating won’t do anything but add to the slush pile of words that can corrupt the mind and heart of whom you wish to love, cherish and ravage. At best, less is way more this time around.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Remember, you’re loved. So why stress about anything else? Seeing that you’ve mastered the hardest part of existence — getting someone to give a crap about you — all else should be cake. However, once you stop freaking out and start sorting out the smaller steps to your bigger picture instead of trying to make one giant leap, all will be even better.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Generosity is not a quality you lack. However, just handing it over on a silver platter to any pretty face isn’t the most prudent thing to do — especially considering superficial allure is your kryptonite. This time, turn fate on her ass and change your method of operation around. Selfish behavior will be rewarded.
The simplicity of Twitter: simple status updates – continues to confound and fascinate writers to no end. It’s no wonder then that book after book is being churned out by the phenom. (Even Bill O’Reilly has one!) The latest – and probably funniest – of the bunch is titled “Twitter Wit: Brilliance in 140 Words or Less” and is penned by writer Nick Douglas. The former Gawker.com columnist compiled hundreds of tweets from every day Joes and Janes to Hollywood Celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Jimmy Fallon. Keep reading »
Can we just say upfront that we called this? Every time Danielle Staub, the “villain” of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, shared the screen with her teenage daughter, Christine, we couldn’t help but stare. The 5’10, 15 year-old blond is absolutely beautiful. New York City based IMG models totally agrees. They just signed the high school student to a contract. “She came into our offices and we were blown away!” IMG Models Worldwide exec, Ivan Bart, told People. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.””We were absolutely blown away by her when we saw her.” Keep reading »
My mom always used to joke in the kitchen, “Never trust a skinny chef,” even though she’s a skinny chef herself. Her words always ring through my mind when I see thinso chefs on the Food Network, or super-slim food critics like Padma Lakshmi of “Top Chef.” She is perhaps the most baffling—I see her eat plates full of food laden with fat (hellloooo butter!), and yet she always looks ridiculously slender. How does she do it? Keep reading »
On September 12, 2009, the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas will celebrate its 1st Anniversary with an “XXXtravagasmic Night of Celebration and Appreciation.”
In the lead-up to the event, and as part of my ongoing Sexy Art feature, I will be featuring some of the artists whose work is currently on exhibition at the museum (see my previous articles on Michael Grecco’s “Naked Ambition” and Bobby Logic’s “First Kiss“).
Excluding those gals who have the unique ability (and required lack of shame) to go around commando on top, we’ve all found ourselves in the dilemma of finding a super-cute top or dress… but no bra to wear with it. Since I require some serious support when it comes to my undergarments, I’ve tried just about anything to make do with what I’ve got at the last possible minute — sewing kits, safety pins (why did it take them so long to invent the Brabuddy?), tucking straps into my armpits, etc. — but now that I’m a little older, I’ve learned that the easiest solution is to just shop wiser! Why spend money on a separate strapless bra when you could buy the ultimate convertible bra that’s both strapless, strapped, racerback, and halter all in one? Continue reading… Keep reading »
Is it bizarre that I have a major case of closet envy? I know, I know, but, really—check out these shots of Kathie Lee and Hoda’s dressing rooms, after the jump! Keep reading »
