Apparently not. Yesterday, Simcha and I were comparing notes on our first celebrity crushes — my first serious one was Wil Wheaton from Star Trek: The Next Generation (waving my nerd flag!), while Simcha was hot for The Count from Sesame Street. Even now, Simcha says she still goes for guys who seem a little like vampires, whereas Wil was my first and last dork crush after he replied to my loving fan letter with a generic postcard of himself decked out in Batman memorabilia (hat, shirt, buttons on his light jean jacket, the works). But up until that point I was convinced we were destined for each other. Talking about all of this with Simcha made me want to find out who Emily and Catherine’s crushes were when they were boy crazy tweens. Unfortunately, both of them said they never crushed on celebrities. Keep reading »
The Wii is the one video game system in my apartment that I can stand, because the games are basic enough for me to play and the sound effects don’t give me a headache. These cuff links are really cute and a fun little gift for the dude in your life that just can’t live without his videogames. [Cufflinks.com]

Amid Vanity Fair-gate, Time published Donny Osmond’s thoughts on Miley Cyrus’ career:
Show business is about idolization. As an idol to tweens the world over, singer-actress Miley Cyrus, 15, is riding a huge tidal wave at the pinnacle of her career; this is as it should be. I hope she enjoys it. I guarantee there will be many bumps in the road ahead. One of them, especially for somebody who acts and sings on her own TV show, is that your image becomes cryogenically frozen into a specific stereotype…..Her challenge will be overcoming the Hannah Montana stereotype. Miley’s fans are not thinking about the fact that she will grow up too. As she does, she’ll want to change her image, and that change will be met with adversity.

Remember how there was all that drama over Lauren Conrad having a sex tape with her ex-boyfriend? And how she thought Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt spread “that sick little rumor”? Well Heidi and Spencer went on The Tyra Show and once again confirmed that there is a sex tape, but that they didn’t tell the press — that Lauren’s ex-boyfriend leaked it when he tried to sell the tape to a distributor. Oooh dang. I, for one, think there probably is a sex tape, but I think it’s far more likely that the evil duo spread the rumor. Because, I mean, they won’t shut up about it. Keep reading »
Muxtape is this new social networking site where you create a profile and can upload 12 songs like a mixtape. You can then add people to your list of favorites and listen to their playlists and they can listen to yours. We started a Frisky Muxtape page and have uploaded 12 songs with “love” in the title. For the next seven days you can go listen to them at your leisure! But here’s a challenge for you and a way of making this whole thing WAY more fun. Why don’t you create a profile for yourself, pick a theme, and upload 12 songs or your choosing? Then share your Muxtape page address here in the comments so that Frisky readers can check out your picks. Every other week, we’ll pick a new theme and upload new songs to our page (on off week’s we’re going to add our “Get Your Rocks Off” picks to our page) and you can do the same, if ya feel like it. It’ll be like one, big mixtape sharing party. [The Frisky Muxtape] Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow can be mega annoying. But even we have to admit the woman has got some style balls.

Agent Provocateur is known for creating obscene displays. True to their name, the windows of their shops have always pushed the envelope. Photographer Enzo Peccinotti has captured and compiled all the lacey and racy spectacles over the past decade, as well as comments from chic fans like Vivienne Westwood (the ownerâ€™s mother), Blondieâ€™s Debbie Harry, and Kate Moss. Suffice it to say, with all the sexy shots in Agent Provocateur: Exhibitionist, the lingerie line is rendered the same way as their clientele — in an attractive package. [Amazon.com] Keep reading »
David Beckham comes across as a pretty awesome dad. He’s arguably the most popular soccer player in the world and could probably get his kids to meet any of their heroes, especially if they’re into Elmo, Big Bird, and Oscar. David recently taped a guest appearance for Sesame Street. In it, he talks to Elmo and introduces viewers to a new word: persistence. Not sure when this episode will air, but it might be worth adding Sesame Street to your DV-R. You’re sure to be inspired. [The Spoiler] Keep reading »
Soap operas love drama with a cheesy soundtrack, but unfortunately, thereâ€™s a small chorus of haters for As The World Turns. This season the show has broken ground with their two new characters, Luke and Noah, a committed gay couple. Okay, so theyâ€™ve kissed three times on screen and theyâ€™re already moving in together, but theyâ€™re so cuteâ€¦and so controversial. The American Family Association wants people to protest all Proctor & Gamble products (Tide, Crest, and Pampers are among them) because they say the company, which produces ATWT, “promotes the homosexual agenda”. To see where America really stands, P&G, who included the gay love story on the show in an effort to show diversity, has set up a hotline. If you want to see more of these two hunks kissing, you can call the number to support Luke & Noah. You donâ€™t have to give your name or any information, just a push of a button so they can keep pushing each otherâ€™s.

We didn’t realize taking communion had so many rules! Rudy Giuliani got a major scolding from New York Cardinal Egan for taking the Eucharist during Mass when the Pope was in town. Egan said that he had “an understanding” with Giuliani that he would not ingest the communion wafer, which represents the body of Christ, because of his support of abortion rights. Egan said doing so was “a grave offense against the will of God.” Color us crazy, but we’re pretty sure plenty of practicing Catholics don’t agree with everything the Church stands for and still take communion — like all the ones having premarital sex! Is it just worse in God’s eyes for Giuliani to do it because he’s a prominent politician? [MSNBC] Keep reading »
