“Amelia” Tells The Story Of The Legendary Aviatrix

Part of the reason my parents named me Amelia was in honor of Amelia Earhart, the female aviator. Earhart broke a bunch of aviation records and was the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross for becoming the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She was pronounced dead in 1939, a year and a half after her plane vanished on a flight somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. Her body was never found. The first trailer for the biopic “Amelia,” starring Hilary Swank, has been released and it’s got OSCAR written all over it. I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed in the casting. Yes, Swank is a double Oscar winner, but, um, I find her kind of boring. I can’t help but think Amy Adams — who plays Earhart in “Night At The Museum 2″ — would have been a fresher choice. But I’ll reserve final judgment until I see the flick, which I think all Amelias should get free tickets to. Keep reading »

And Jude Law’s Baby Mama Is …

And the winner is … Samantha Burke! The media didn’t really see this coming yesterday. When it was announced that Jude Law had fathered a fourth child and the mother was seven-months pregnant, everyone backtracked to last December when Law was filming “Sherlock Holmes” opposite Rachel McAdams. Reportedly, McAdam’s sister, Kayleen is pregnant and the puzzle pieces seemed to fit together perfectly. Makeup artist Kayleen wasn’t working on the “Sherlock Holmes” set, but was supposedly introduced to Jude and the two allegedly hooked up. But alas she is no longer in the running to be his next baby mama.

So who is this woman who’s carrying the next Spawn of Jude Law? Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: My Ex Is Trying To Kill Me!

“My ex and I have been broken up for nearly a month, but I continue to have reoccurring dreams about him. In all of them he is trying to murder me. I’ve lost track of the number I’ve had, but they all involve him, a knife, and me waking up in complete terror. The first one actually occurred shortly before we broke up after he had informed me that he no longer knew if he was in love in me. In all of them he has made a point of laughing each time he stabs me. It’s reaching the point where I’m trying to avoid sleeping just because I don’t want to wake up screaming. Can you tell me what’s causing these and if I can expect them to stop soon? – Sleep Deprived Keep reading »

Amy Poehler Brings The Funny Back To SNL Weekend Update

Holy hilarity! Thursdays this fall just got funnier. “SNL” alum/comic genius Amy Poehler will return to her comedic anchor seat alongside Seth Meyers for “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays.” My all-time favorite “SNL” skit took a hit when Tina Fey and Amy left the show, but the Thursday night special that began during the presidential election is back. And hopefully, the Poehler-punch will bring it back to its original level of awesomeness. “Weekend Update Thursdays” starts September 17, before the premieres of “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock.” If you squint hard enough, you can pretend that Amy and Tina are both behind the anchor’s desk, together again.

DIY Dating in the Dark

Viewers are going crazy over the new ABC show “Dating in the Dark” where women and men are forced to get to know each other in the pitch black darkness. After a few dates, they are allowed to see each other without speaking and finally must make the choice of how important looks really are. Here at The Frisky we wish we had time to audition and hop on to one of these fun shows, but sadly we don’t. (Consequently, some of us also have boyfriends who just wouldn’t understand.) Instead we’ve decided to find activities to recreate dating in the dark. Keep reading »

National Portrait Gallery To Commemorate Twiggy

It seems like Twiggy will never go out of style, and as the years pass, her iconic stature only seems to gain importance. To wit: The National Portrait Gallery in London is paying tribute to the model with an exhibition of her best work. Of course, “Twiggy: A Life in Photographs” owes its constitution largely to the photographers known for making her a household name, such as Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, and Annie Leibovitz, to name a few. Twiggy, who still models (!) commented on the exhibition, underlining the reason why we’d want to see it: “It’s really interesting to see how fashion photography and portraiture have evolved throughout my career.”

Anderson Cooper Prods Jillian Harris About Her Sexy Times

Anderson Cooper jumped right into his interview with ex-Bachelorette Jillian Harris on “Regis & Kelly” the other day with the juiciest question: “How many guys did you actually sleep with?” While Jillian, Kelly, and the audience gasp, Jillian’s beau, Ed, just sits there laughing … cause he probably wants to know, too. Though Anderson wasn’t the one who was giving oily massages and making out in hot tubs on national TV, I think it’s safe to say he wouldn’t be too thrilled if someone asked him about his sex life on air.

Gallery: Temp Furniture You’ll Want To Keep Around

When we first read about Dutch designer Jeroen van de Kant’s Chesterfield-style seats and sofas, our first reaction was — blow-up chairs? I’m much closer to 30 years old than 20, no thanks. (Oh, and the steep price tag ain’t so pretty either.) But the inflatable seats did prove one thing: that temporary furniture need not be fugly. Check out these other here-today, gone-tomorrow (maybe?) home pieces…

Is Gossiping Ever Good?

America is a nation obsessed with other people’s lives. A visitor glancing at our magazine and newspaper racks or flipping through TV channels immediately knows where our priorities lie, and it’s not with dissecting world politics. Instead, we hunt for news about the latest troubled starlet and watch other people’s lives unfold via reality TV shows. Keep reading »
