It Gets Better, The Book

When Dan Savage posted the first “It Gets Better” video to YouTube, following the suicides of multiple LBGT teens who faced bullying in school, he likely didn’t expect the overwhelming culture phenomena it became. Since then, the It Gets Better Project has seen over 6,000 YouTube videos posted by people all over the world, offering gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth support and acceptance. Now, the It Gets Better book features a collection of expanded essays and new material from celebrities, everyday people and teens assuring victims of bullying that they are not alone and that it will get better.

Frisky Q&A: Adrianne Curry On Her Extremely Surreal Life

I like to imagine Adrianne Curry going to a psychic in 2002, the year before she auditioned for “America’s Next Top Model.” I can almost see this psychic peering into her crystal ball and telling Adrianne, who was 20 years old and addicted to heroin at the time, “You are going to win a major reality show, get a contract with Wilhemina Models, and marry a member of ‘The Brady Bunch.’” Adrianne would have no doubt looked her square in the eyes and said, “Are you sure I’m the one on drugs?”

It’s been eight years since Adrianne won “ANTM” and six since she appeared on “The Surreal Life.” On April 9th and 10th, she will be one of the guests of honor at the Reality Rocks Expo, a two-day conference celebrating the phenomenon of reality TV and culminating in a Reality Rocks Fan Awards. To get ready, Adrianne sat down with The Frisky to talk about our fascination with modeling shows, falling in love with Christopher Knight, and how she convinced him to have a goth wedding.

Quiz: Stripper Heel Or Designer Shoe?

quiz 032311 m jpg
Shoes are pretty out of control these days, and we’re not complaining. The higher the heel, the closer to God (or is that hair?). In any case, it seems that more and more designers are taking a cue from the strip clubs of the world, making shoes with impossibly high platforms and gaudy detailing. It’s getting hard to tell whose been working the poll and whose been working the runway. We figured we couldn’t be the only ones noticing this sky-high platform trend, so we thought we’d give you, dear readers, a challenge: Which of the following shoes are stripper heels, and which are high-end designer shoes, worth thousands of dollars?
