Naturally, just because you’re about to be a mom doesn’t necessarily mean you want to look like one. But have you had a chance–or a reason for that matter–to look at the maternity clothes options out there? You’ll realize quickly that chic maternity picks are just as hard to come by as plus-sized ones can be. Then Nicole Richie got pregnant! The socialite-turned-reality-star-turned-designer/model has upped the ante for pregnant fashionistas everywhere by designing and starring as the face of her first maternity line, which will be sold at A Pea in the Pod stores.

So, a 32-year-old South Korean hypnotist walks into a bar, or something, and offers to put his 27-year-old blind date (which was arranged by a matchmaking service) into a trance. She finally agrees and he starts “hypnotizing” her by saying, “Black hole! You will plunge deeper into a trance. You will feel thrilled all over your body and if my hand touches your body, you will feel intense pleasure.” Only she’s not hypnotized, and when the “hypnotist” swoops in for the kiss, the woman freaks out and pushes him away. And files a sexual harassment suit and the guy gets fined three million won. Which might just be $2,453, but that’s still one seriously expensive kiss! [AP]
Sure, it’s a sleazy method of seducing a lady, but if a date trying to kiss you is sexual harassment, I’ve got a long day of legal matters to settle. What do you think: Is faux hypnosis totally deplorable or do you think this punishment is a tad harsh? Keep reading »
You know those articles where a woman writes that something that’s generally considered to be shady is really friggin’ fantastic? Yeah, us Frisky ladies tend to be skeptical.

We’ve got similar “meh” feelings for the way Terri Graham, a member of More.com’s reader community, confronted her anorexia, bulimia and body dysmorphic disorder: competing in “countless” beauty pageants and strutting across the stage in a swimsuit and heels caused Graham to stop hating her body.

The future of fashion has nothing to do with mod space-like suits, computerized visors, or moon shoes. Instead, it will be about taking what we already have and making it 10 times better. Specifically, we’re talking about the textile industry’s recent advances in “smart fabrics,” some of which would be sweat-proof, allowing you to live in a world without pit stains (which only existed previously in movies and fashion magazines).

One company across the pond is trying to pass a new policy that bans something sexist, dangerous and hazardous to women’s health: high heels. Oh yes, while most people think the British Trade Union Congress should be dealing with labor policies, the mostly male organization is currently tackling Christian Louboutins. They are drafting a ban on heels over one-inch tall. Keep reading »

If you’re going to wear fake bling, just be shameless. Like fake-jewels-and-animal-faces shameless. That’s why you need to get your paws on this Friendly Lion Bracelet. Those fake diamonds! That fake ruby! And it’s “gold!” And I bet it goes well with leopard or zebra print, too. Rrrrrrow! [$15, LuLu's] Keep reading »
Oprah Winfrey and her production company, Harpo Inc., is being sued for $1 trillion for allegedly plagiarizing part of author Damon Lloyd Goffe’s book, A Tome of Poetry, in her internet-published book Pieces of my Soul. The copyright infringement suit was filed on July 31, and Goffe says that Winfrey even admitted to using his book a year ago. “In April 2008, Oprah confessed to seizing original works of authorship.” And since Winfrey allegedly sold 650 million copies of her book online for $20 each, Goffe thinks he deserves $1.2 trillion in damages.

The American Psychological Association has finally gotten around to saying that therapy aimed at turning gays straight is totally bogus. Good job, guys. We’ve only known that for, like, ever. In a vote of 125-to-4, the APA adopted a resolution saying that mental health personnel shouldn’t recommend so-called “repairative therapy” or similar treatments to gay clients. In fact, the effects of this bogus therapy could actually be harmful, leading to suicidal tendencies and depression. Keep reading »
