Back in January we reported that new data suggested more women were dying their hair blonde during the recession. Catherine speculated that the added boost in confidence from going blonde might increase a woman’s number of free drinks at a bar, something we can all appreciate during these lean economic times. But now a conflicting report says that one in three blond female employees is going darker in an attempt to keep their jobs during this economic downturn. Researchers found that 62% of people think brunettes look more professional than blondes, prompting 31% of female employees to go back to their roots. Keep reading »
In case you tune out whenever sports news comes on TV, there’s a little thing called March Madness going on right now. The college basketball teams who will compete have been announced, and the games begin tomorrow.
A lot of men and women, including President Barack Obama, spend hours trying to figure out the brackets so they can win pools and whatnot. We here at The Frisky aren’t as interested in basketball scores, statistics, or team rankings. No, we care more about who the hottest player is. So, starting next week, we will be pitting players from the NCAA Sweet 16 against one another in March Man-ness, a battle of the looks. Let’s get ready to rumble!
If you have any favorite players you’d like to see included, leave your suggestions in the comments! Keep reading »
We always knew Kenley from “Project Runway” was a little cuckoo, and now we have proof! TMZ is reporting that she was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly attacking her ex-fiance — and throwing a cat at him (among other things). Right now she’s behind bars and charged with six crimes, including 2nd degree assault, 3rd degree assault, and criminal possession of a weapon in the 4th degree. Yikes. Do you think the cat’s okay? [TMZ]

Some people pride themselves on achieving a degree, starting a business, or raising a family. But one of cast members of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” prides herself on being one of the first female American Express Black card members in Jersey. That’s Danielle Staub, a single mom who along with sisters Dina and Caroline Manzo, their sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, and friend Teresa Guidice are featured on Bravo’s fourth installment of “The Real Housewives” franchise. Since this bunch of gals is already connected, we won’t have to sit through those awkwardly staged, surprise introductions that occur on the other shows. We’re sure that with all this family drama these women will become frenemies in no time. Thank you Bravo for answering our prayers. Now we have something to hold us over until the real drama begins on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season two.

We’re just dying to put some spring into our wardrobe, but we don’t want to freeze our tuckus off. So we’ll pair this bold color dress with a pair of tights, strappy sandals, and a cardigan. And since this one shoulder dress is less than $40, we’ll be able to pick up everything else we need too. Where? At Target, of course. Who doesn’t love one-stop shopping? [$39.99, Target.com] Keep reading »
Michelle Obama may have won the respect of the nation with her Ivy league pedigree, community service, and career achievements, but she’s now winning adulation with a very retro female trick: keeping her mouth shut and looking pretty!
She’s already been on the covers of various fashion mags, and this week’s New York had an all out Michelle Obama fest, cataloging her fashion achievements, physical stature, and her seemingly healthy sex life. The First Lady, who caught flack last year for saying that her husband’s presidential campaign made her proud of her country for the first time, has quickly learned that a well dressed, well coiffed first lady can wield more power through general affability than with a more vocal, direct approach to politics.

When the fiance of a woman in Florida died suddenly of cancer in January, his bride-to-be lost more than just her groom. She lost more than $800 in unreturned deposits from the venue she planned to hold her wedding reception. Blythe Carpenter was engaged to Jeffery Kallish last May and planned a big wedding bash for January 31st. Less than two months before the wedding, Kallish was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and the couple decided to cancel the wedding and maybe “do something quick later on.” Sadly, Kallish passed away in mid-January before they had a chance to marry. All the wedding vendors but one returned Carpenter’s deposits and payments in mid-December when they were notified of the cancellation. Keep reading »
Esquire has created a series of instructional videos called “Ask A Beautiful Woman,” because, obvi, we babes know it all! From a DEA agent teaching “How To Fire A Hand Gun” to a supermodel heating things up with How To Grill The Perfect Steak, female experts are showing off their typically male-oriented skills. But what about the ladies? We’d like male eye candy to show us a thing or two…

Congratulations! You just learned that a lot of your guy friends have or do think about you while they jerk off! But do you ever think about them? Do tell. Keep reading »
Last night I had the pleasure of guesting on Cosmo Radio on Sirius. One of things we discussed (in addition to the Hottest Guys With Irish Blood and Paul Rudd) was the public’s obsession with the ins and outs of celebrity sex lives. How weird it must be for, say, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, to know that thousands/millions of people actually think about them DOING IT? But Brian, Cosmo Radio’s resident male, clued us in on something startling. There are people — men, specifically — who think about US having sex. How we do it, what we look like when we’re doing it, and what it might be like to be the one doing it to us. In fact, he promised, we could count on the fact that at least five of our guy friends thought about us while they were jerking off. Say what? My guy friends, aka the Guys On Our IM, have potentially included me in their spank bank? I was honored, not disgusted by the notion, and therefore had to confirm… Keep reading »
