Dan Savage May Be Coming To MTV

My very favorite sex advice columnist and founder of the “It Gets Better Project,” Dan Savage, may be a new staple on MTV. Entertainment Weekly reports that he is currently working on a pilot where he goes to college campuses, fields questions about sex, dating, and relationships, and doles out his unique brand of no-nonsense advice. If his TV show is even half as entertaining as his weekly “Savage Love” podcast, it should be a huge hit. I’m thinking “Love Line” for the aughts, but way more LGBT-friendly. It really does get better. [EW] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin’s Got A New Boyfriend

Is there no justice in the world? The entire Frisky editorial staff is single right now, but Bristol Palin has a boyfriend. The nation’s foremost expert on abstinence admitted in a radio show interview yesterday that there’s a new Levi Johnston in her life (although this one is presumably not allowed to put his P in the V). Here is what little we know about Bristol’s new man:

  1. He’s Alaskan.
  2. He reportedly works on an oil pipeline.

That’s it. Exciting, no? Keep reading »

The 5 Biggest Lies Rom-Coms Tell

romcom lies g1 jpg
I am a complete sucker for a romantic comedy. There are a few that I would genuinely recommend as a quality film to just about anyone; “Going the Distance,” for example, was hilarious, steered away from the usual rom-com tropes, and actually felt realistic. But for the most part, rom-coms, while enjoyable in a mind-numbing sort of way, follow a basic formula that further certain romantic untruths. I would like to say I have been immune to their subversive messages, but the fact is, the happy endings found in rom-coms have a way of implanting in your brain as things that could actually occur in real life. They won’t. Here are the five biggest lies rom-coms tell about sex and relationships.

Make Your Wine Breathe Faster

Even if you’re currently on a drinking sabbatical, there’s no time like the present to start thinking about how to make your next glass of wine the best it can be. Everyone knows that wine that has been allowed to breathe tastes better than popping open a bottle and immediately chugging away. But who wants to wait 10 minutes for a fresh bottle to aerate? Not us winos! That’s why the Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator is a boozehound’s best friend. Open a bottle of red, hold the decanter over your glass and pour away — in the process, the Vinturi “creates an increase in the wine’s velocity and a decrease in its pressure,” resulting in a perfectly aerated glass of vino in the time it takes to pour. Who’s thirsty?

Who Is Oprah’s New Sister, Patricia?


It’s like a story from … well …”Oprah.” Yesterday Oprah Winfrey introduced to the world a long lost sister, Patricia, a single mother of two. In 1963, Patricia — whose last name was not revealed — was put up for adoption in Milwaukee by their mom, Vernita Lee. At the time, Oprah was nine-years-old, living with her father in Nashville and had no idea her mom was even pregnant.

So, how did Patricia come to find out she’s related to the most famous woman in the world? Keep reading »

10 Bad News Dudes I Shouldn’t Be Attracted To

bad news dudes g1 jpg
My favorite blog Cheese People, has been really lax at posting lately, so I’ve had to find a new time-waster to be inexplicably obsessed with. The lucky winner: Bad News Dudes, a tribute to all the guys “we shouldn’t be attracted to.” Because “if loving them is wrong, we don’t want to be right.” A few of the men included:

Jared Leto: “First he was that awful dude on ‘My So-Called Life.’ Now he wears guyliner and is in that awful band. In spite of all that, I think it really would only take me thirty seconds to get to Mars. If Jared Leto were on Mars.”

Fidel Castro: “In real life were we to ever meet, I would try to kill him. However, my techniques for murder would definitely include seduction first. Just look at that f**king beard.”

Scott Disick: “I have a feeling hair pulling and dirty talk are part of his repertoire, along with dressing like an idiot.”

In reading through their selections, I developed a few new crushes I never thought of before — mmm, Triton from “The Little Mermaid” — but I also have some suggestions of my own. Click onward for 10 guys I shouldn’t be attracted to … but f**k it, I can’t help it, I just am.
