10 Things You Really Don’t Want To Do With Dad

You know how buying things like condoms and Monistat can be embarrassing? There’s one thing that makes either of those, or anything awkward and vaguely sexual, even more traumatizing: doing them with your dad.

Having bought my first bra with my father (I have no idea why that happened), I’m fairly well-versed in the sort of mortification that comes with such activities. It’s bad enough to buy your first box of tampons, and it only really gets worse when the guy who should never think about your lady parts is carrying them to the register. But purchasing tampons or training bras aren’t the only things you should leave dad out of. Keep reading »

Scandalicious Wives: Chicks Whose Hubbies Really Effed Up

swmadoff 061509 g1 jpg
The New York Times is calling Bernie Madoff’s wife, Ruth, “the loneliest woman in New York.” Although she hasn’t been charged with any crimes, her husband was involved in a $65 billion Ponzi scheme. He ruined a lot of people’s lives, including his wife’s. She has been banned from the salon she went to every six weeks for 10 years, and her kids no longer call her “mom.” She can’t go to her gym and a bunch of Upper East Side restaurants won’t serve her. Even Ruth’s flourist has nixed her as a client. [The New York Times]

I think Ruth probably had some inkling of an idea that her husband was up to no good, so I don’t feel too bad for her. But it’s sad when a crooked dude messes up his wives’ reputation. Check our slideshow of other women who got dragged down by their horrible hubbies.

Optimize Your Daily Dose Of Snail Secretion

Snail secretion…ew. If we at The Frisky did not feel a great responsibility to report every beauty secret we discover/investigate/stumble across, we would have left the snail dribble alone and kept down our lunches. Yet, sadly for my stomach, we take our beauty products seriously. I was prepared to laugh off snail secretion face creams as the cream of the bizarre beauty crop, but those pesky peeps at The International Society of Skin Pharmacology Journal wouldn’t let me. Oh yes, those evil scientists cackled evilly as they discovered the regenerative qualities of the snail slime and its beneficial facial effects. The gist of our slimy friend’s beauty success lies in the secretions ability to block out harmful environmental pollution. We might have speed, but we do not have slime that protects us from UV radiation. Luckily for humans (and not so luckily for snails), snail secretion not only protects human skin but has rejuvenating properties as well! To be honest, the article lost me when it started getting into snail immunology, but until my own mental powers failed me, the science sounded plausible enough. No one is claiming snail secretion will permanently solve all your epidermis worries, but if a snail secretion based cream is used daily, you should see improvements faster than at a snails pace. None of the products are drastically different, but because we are The Frisky, we found you the best of every category. Keep reading »

The “Slim Mouth Piece”: Beauty Product Or Choking Hazard?

Everyone wants a tighter something this day. Someone at some point decided that our butts and thighs need to have more elasticity than a gumby doll. While this obsession with tightness has added two, ahem 20, minutes to my daily beauty routine, it’s definitely worth it during bathing season. What’s not worth it: the Slim Mouth Piece designed to create a taut face but more likely to cause your premature death by choking. Maybe I am just too literal and it’s my problem that I can’t get my mom’s voice saying “don’t put that in your mouth, you will choke!” out of my head. If it’s just my own childhood and authority issues rearing their ugly heads, then who am I to stop you from trying the Slim Mouth Piece…Don’t do it! Keep reading »

Celebrities Who’ve Been Ratted On By The Help

It’s hard to get good help these days. Or at least help who won’t air your dirty laundry in a courtroom. Unfortunately for Linda Hogan, all that chitchat with her hairdresser is biting her in the ass. Hogan’s ex-hairdresser, Tracy Morgan (no, not the comedian), testified in a Florida court yesterday saying the wrestler’s ex-wife told her she uses part of her $40,000 monthly alimony checks to buy drugs. Hogan’s drug cocktail of choice: smoking the gange and popping Roxi, a hard-core painkiller. Of course Hogan’s legal team has deemed the allegations “a complete fabrication.” [MSNBC]

But come on, what maid or guard or personal assistant isn’t taking notes on their celebrity boss’ secrets while they sweep the floor and watch the security cameras? Click on for more celebs whose help has spilled their beans.

Ever Wonder What Editors Fashion Show Notes Look Like?

Editor Glenn O’Brien (once of Interview magazine, Rolling Stone, High Times and now a blogger on men.style.com, among other endeavors) let’s us in on his mostly nonsensical, sometimes hilarious notes (he actually uses the word “ass plate” in descriptive terms) from the last ready-to-wear shows in Milan and Paris. The scribbles were mostly made in the dark, so he claims they “read like code and are skewed at an odd angle in a weird hand reminiscent of the webs researchers recorded after giving spiders LSD. I swear it was just the darkness, and maybe a little Champagne.” Readable or not, I always wonder what those front-row editors are scrawling in their chic, little books—so get a load Glenn’s wack-job thoughts on collections from Hussein Chalayan, Fendi, Max Mara, Roberto Cavalli, Givenchy, etc. [Style Guy Blog] Keep reading »

Barack Obama To Talk About Being A Papa

Sasha and Malia Obama must be two of the only girls on in the country who aren’t embarrassed by their father. Sure, he makes a corny joke every now and then, but come on—in addition to the whole being president thing, he dresses well, plays a mean game of basketball, and got them the puppy they’d been begging for all year. Not to mention that, about a week before being inaugurated, he wrote an open letter to them in Parade Magazine. “I know that you’ve both had a lot of fun these last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn’t have let you have. But I also know that it hasn’t always been easy for you,” he wrote. “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me—about how I’d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all your curiosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans for myself didn’t seem so important anymore. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours.”

Yeah, that made me a little teary, too. Barack Obama takes being a father very seriously. Which makes sense considering that his own dad—a Kenyan man who fell in love with a white midwestern woman while studying at the University of Hawaii—left when Barack was two. Keep reading »
