Hey there, Frisky readers! A few weeks ago, when I took the day off of work, I asked readers to post their own news article and blog post links in the comments for a Today’s Lady News column, readers’ submission edition. I was so impressed by all the smartypants readers we’ve got out there that I want to do it again (and occasionally in the future, too!). The rules are the same: Submit your own links to news articles and blog posts about women, girls, trans-identified people, gender roles, feminism or sexism in the comments. Just write a sentence or two summary explaining what the link is about and give everyone a heads up if it has language or imagery that’s NSFW.
I’ll be back with our regularly scheduled Today’s Lady News on Monday. Thanks everyone! Keep reading »
Despite about a million sexual harassment lawsuits and looming bankruptcy, Dov Charney and American Apparel will be able to continue on for a little longer, thanks to a cash infusion. The T-shirt and crop-top company will get anywhere between $15 and $43 million over the next six months. “Dov is an eccentric, and he’s being butchered by investors and the press,” said Roy Sebag of Essentia Equity, one of several lenders who is helping to bail out the company. In the meantime, if you’re not sure about throwing your hard-earned cash at a man who may or may not have requested sexual favors from his female underlings but are in dire need of a new v-neck, check out what LAmade has to offer.

Girls, you are wearing a thong on your hair. And no, Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens, I don’t care that it’s a fancy rhinestone-encrusted thong. A thong is a thong is a thong–isn’t that what Marcel Duchamp said? Or was it Sisqo? Whatever. I understand that we are all trying to find new ways to wear jewelry and spend our hard-earned Disney cash, but come on … a head thong is not the way to go. You look like you lost interest halfway into putting a necklace on. And okay, fine, maybe you did. [MTV Style] Keep reading »
You may not know this about me, but I grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona. I don’t mention it often as I felt like a freak of nature there, where silicon and suntanning are a way of life … just not my way. However, I am tickled to hear the rumor that Andy Cohen and his minions were spotted in Scottsdale casting a new “Housewives” franchise for Bravo. Nothing is confirmed, but sources say that Alejandra Nash, soon-to-be-ex-wife of NBA star Steve Nash, has signed on. Apparently she cheated on him and it resulted in a pregnancy. I’m already excited. If such a show came true, it would make for most entertaining television. Trust me. [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
