Prince William and Prince Harry, or as the U.K. Daily Express calls them, “Baldy and Ginger,” are doing flight training together in Shropshire, which sounds suspiciously like “Hobbit” territory to me. William is training to become a search and rescue pilot, while Harry will fly attack helicopters and recently spent ten weeks serving in Afghanistan. The two are now roommates for what Harry calls, “the first and last time we will be living together.” [Hello Magazine]
Of course, being hot young princeys, they’re always up to no good and enjoy many topless pillow fights. No, but seriously, how cute is it that they have to live together and take care of each other and give each other sponge baths? Okay, so I’m being wildly inappropriate, but here are their latest royal ramblings on the subject. Keep reading »

I remember a few years ago when I was an intern at New York magazine, I helped Vanessa Grigoriadis on an article about NYC families with only children. One afternoon she asked to me to go up to the neighborhood where a lot of prep schools can be found, find some high school-age only children and get their contact info. Although a few only children were willing to talk to me, more than a few of the high schoolers told me, to paraphrase, they weren’t supposed to talk to the press because we made them look bad.

Around The Frisky office, I get mocked for being mildly obsessed with Harry Potter. Sure, the series isn’t as sexy as vampire stories like “True Blood” or “Twilight,” but Harry’s glasses turn me on. Needless to say, I am excited to watch “Harry Potter the Musical,” a parody created by Potter fans, while I await the July 15 release of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” [via Flavorwire] Keep reading »
This statistic absolutely blew me away: according to the Guardian, women in the U.K. are nine times more likely than men to shoplift. And they’re good at it, as only one in 48 shoplifters gets caught!
Why is it that shoplifting is such a female-heavy crime? Is it because shoplifting is criminal, but not aggressive, which could be an attribute women want to avoid? Or is it because women earn less money than men do so we’re trying to make up for what we can’t afford to buy? Keep reading »
It’s a good thing abstinence-only advocates are tweaking their message, because the old one didn’t seem to be working. According to a study from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and the Guttmacher Institute, teens’ contraceptive use declined 10 percent from 2003 to 2007, but their level of sexual activity remained the same. The study’s authors believe the findings suggest a link between the decrease in contraceptive use and the rise in abstinence-only education during former President George W. Bush’s administration. Unsurprisingly, the proportion of births to unmarried women also saw an increase. [Medical News Today] Keep reading »
