Will And Jada Fire The Headmaster Of Their School Over Scientology Curriculum

Will Smith and his TMI-spewing wife recently fired the headmaster of their private school. Allegedly, the educational feud with Jacqueline Olivier was over the curriculum for a “Study Technology” class at the New Village Leadership Academy. Will and Jada have denied that the school is all about Scientology, but the word is that Olivier wanted to do some tinkering with the course, even though it was designed by L. Ron Hubbard, which wasn’t cool with Will and Jada. Guess they’ll have to find a new headmaster to teach their kids science fiction?

But wait a second. Let’s back up. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have a school? And they aren’t the only ones. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

DKNY Tee for Charity

Does Sex Hurt You Really, Really Bad?

About 20 million women in American complain of having really, really painful sex. Often, the discomfort extends to daily life. Many women have problems sitting, riding bikes and even wearing jeans. One woman described sex as “having sandpaper rubbed on an open wound.” A lot of these women get really effed up emotionally because docs don’t understand what is going on. But physicians are finally getting hip to why this is happening, and they’re calling this new class of issues Sex Pain Disorders. Creative. Keep reading »

Common + Cologne = Free Concert

If you’re a big fan of Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr., aka Common, and like so many chicks we know, prefer to wear men’s cologne because so much girly perfume smells like fruit and pink flowers, then listen up: To celebrate his new Diesel fragrance, the rapper is holding a private concert for his friends and celebrity fans at NYC venue Capitale, which is small enough to ensure that onlookers just might get close enough to literally smell him. But what’s a girl who’s not a close personal friend or “celebrity fan” to do? Starting August 10, the first 500 people to make a Diesel Only The Brave purchase of $117.50 or more at Macy’s in Herald Square (and other select NYC locations) will receive two general admission tickets to this exclusive concert. Normally we’re not the hugest celebrity fragrance fans around here but you might be surprised at Common’s complex combo: With top notes of lemon blossom, mandarin and coriander leaves; a heart of labdanum, black rose and lavender; and a dry down of amber, tolu and ebony woods, this stuff actually smells really good. So there. Keep reading »

Ready, Set, Prep: The Best Makeup Primers For Your Eyes, Lips, & Face

As the ultimate makeup junkie, I have a tough time saying no to a new shadow shade, lip color, or nail hue… and it certainly shows in my inability to organize it all. But now that my makeup collection has successfully taken over every drawer, zip case, surface, nook and cranny of my humble abode, I’m starting to resist the urge to buy more and more pots of colors that I’ll probably never use more than once. Instead, I’ve narrowed my focus to scouting out the newest and best priming products that can help make the most of the colors I already have for easy application, flawless appearance, and maximum smudge-free wear all day long.

South Korean Hypnotist Fined Millions For Stealing A Kiss

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 »

Anorexic And Bulimic Woman Says Beauty Pageant Changed Her Life For The Better

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. Maybe being a mail-order bride really did turn out well for that woman featured in Marie Claire last month! But don’t kid yourself that you’re not an exception to the rule.

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.
