Mind Of Man: Guys Have Insecurities, Just Like Women!

You’ll never see a dude turn to another dude and ask, “Do I look fat in these pants?” But that doesn’t mean men are invulnerable to insecurities, no matter how much we’d like to think so. Women are upfront about their fears, doubts, and self-esteem. I used to think it was just compulsive gabbiness, a quirk of the fairer sex. But, in fact, it is an admirable coping mechanism that’s even a little bit courageous. That said, I’ll sack up and admit that I’ve spent a lot of my life feeling like a fatty, a chubasaurus, half-man and half-marshmallow. Keep reading »

Comedian Gets Sued By Her Mama-In-Law

Stand-up comedian Sunda Croonquist is being sued by her mother-in-law. Why? Because in her comedy routines, Sunda—like, oh, every other comedian ever—makes fun of her background, mainly the fact that she’s half-black, half-Swedish, was raised Catholic and is now married to a Jewish guy. Her mama-in-law, Ruth Zafrin, says that she’s been defamed by Sunda’s jokes, which allegedly portray her as racist and ultra New Jersey-esque. Croonquist claims her hubby’s fam used to laugh at her routine, but decided it was no laughing matter when she put info about them on her website that gave away their identity. Watch the video above and tell us if you think it’s sue-worthy. Keep reading »

Topshop To Launch New Makeup Line!

Any Topshop news is good news in our book. The London import will be prettying up its wares with a new cosmetics line, due out next year, as it continues to become more of a department store/one-stop shop. No word yet on what the collection will be like, but British Elle says: “We’re guessing they could be tapping an international make-up artist to work with on the project.” We’d also expect some uber-cute packaging and, hopefully, very affordable price points. Should Sephora feel threatened? [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Did A LEGO Giraffe Lose His Penis? Or Was It His Tail?

Poor baby! An 18-foot tall giraffe made out of LEGOs in Berlin’s LEGOland Discovery Center keeps getting his tail stolen! A spokesperson for the LEGO center said every time a visitor ganks the giraffe tail, which is made of 15,000 LEGOs, it costs $4,300 to replace. Heartless hoodlums have stolen the animal’s tail four times already. The weirdest part of this whole story, though, is that in Australia, news outlets reported that the giraffe’s penis was stolen, not its tail. (Slow news day Down Under, eh?) See, a stolen giraffe penis would be damn funny. If we have any Frisky readers in Germany, we’re anxiously awaiting clarification on this matter! [Yahoo] Keep reading »

Sex & Celluloid: The Best Threesomes That Never Were

While “(500) Days of Summer” is only the latest warm weather flick to explore the delights and wonders of monogamy, there’s been a relative dearth of love triangles in recent cinema. Are ménages à trois no longer in fashion? It seemed like the ’90s were full of threesomes, coming (so to speak) in all different shapes and genders: Was Gregg Araki’s “Splendor” really that bad that it signaled the end of a decade-long exploration into the not-so-single life? Below, four films that promised us the magical number 3 but never delivered on the company, much less the crowd. Keep reading »

Chris Brown Sentenced For Rihanna Assault & New Details Emerge About Violence

Sigh. The Feb. 8th incident when Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna was not the first violent argument between the couple. Before his sentencing yesterday, Brown’s probation officer filed a report revealing the couple was involved in two other incidents “related to domestic violence“—and come to find out, Rihanna has slapped Brown in the past. Obviously that does not make the intensity of his brutal Feb. 8 assault excusable, but it sheds light on how they had a more violent relationship than we previously thought. Keep reading »
