9 Celebrity Couples Who’ve Guest Starred Together

We at The Frisky get kinda excited about guest starring roles. And the couple that guest stars together, stays together—or something like that. Apparently, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo will be co-stars in an upcoming episode of “Hawaii Five-O.” Vanessa will play Susan, a deckhand on a cruise ship that is taken hostage by pirates. (Arrrrrrggh.) And Nick will play her fiance because, you know, that’s totally a stretch. The episode will air in February. I guess we should expect a Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson episode of “Glee” shortly thereafter? [People]

In Nick and Vanessa’s honor, here’s a look at other couples who have guest starred as a duo.

Can’t Get Laid? Listen To Some Music

Put another record on: It turns out that listening to music is just about as good as sex when it comes to making people happy. A new study from Canadian researchers at McGill University in Montreal found that the dopamine released while having sex is the same you get when listening to music. Researchers vetted 10 subjects to receive specialized brain scans to measure dopamine levels. They were then played their favorite music while dopamine levels were measured. Regardless of the genre of music — punk, classical or pop — subjects felt a dopamine high. The coolest thing: Dopamine responds to the pauses and pathways in different songs. So if you’re particularly familiar with a song or a sequence, your brain will anticipate it and produce dopamine ahead of it.

The music dopamine is particularly good news when it comes to figuring out how to treat depression and anxiety. “For reasons that we don’t entirely understand, somehow music was able to kick in with the same system,” said Robert Zatorre, lead researcher on the study. “And that gives it power that it might not otherwise have…Because it gives us pleasure, we can use it to our advantage to modulate our state of mind.” [Montreal Gazette]

In the latest issue of Glamour, there’s this really interesting feature called “How I Knew” which features short little essays by men on “how they knew” certain things: “How I Knew I Really Would Marry Her,” “How I Knew I Was Going To Cheat,” etc. My favorite of the bunch was “How I Knew She Wasn’t The One,” in which writer Adam Sternbergh rather humorously describes how he knew various women weren’t “the one” until he finally did meet the one who was. Now, I’m not really a big believer in “the one,” so to speak, as I think we all have lots of of ones, but I am a big believer that we have even more people in our lives who were NOT the one and we can usually pinpoint one particular moment when that became clear. So, in the vein of Sternbergh’s essay for Glamour, here’s my own “How I Knew He Wasn’t The One.”

The Shoe That Says How You Really Feel

Massimo Dogana has designed a shoe that I’m sure Lindsay Lohan would love. His “F-U” shoes give the finger and say how the wearer really feels. But at $1,095, we’ll just stick to making our own freehand gestures. [Stylediggers] Keep reading »

Lea Michele Dissed “True Grit” Star Hailee Steinfeld

“When I was auditioning for ‘True Grit,’ I was on the Paramount lot, I was wearing clothes from the 1800s that were big and uncomfortable. ‘Glee’ also films on the lot and I love the show … I saw Lea Michele just walking to her trailer and I was like, ‘That’s the girl from ‘Glee.’ I’ve got to go ask for her autograph!’ So I walked up to her and asked for her autograph, but she walked by and a guy came and said, ‘Sorry, now’s not a good time!’ … I had to walk all the way back to the car wearing what I was wearing. I was practically crying on the way home. I was so sad! But she’s beautiful and she has an amazing voice.”

— “True Grit” star Hailee Steinfeld on her fan fail with Lea Michele. Way to break a young star’s heart, Lea. I bet she feels like an ass now. Not to worry, Hailee. You’re already more famous than Lea. She should be begging for your autograph. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Cocks On Locks: The Chastity Belt For Men

There were a lot of new toys at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas last week, but one in particular seemed extra freaky: the new C-B6000 chastity belt for men. While its name implies some kind of futurist technology, the concept is sort of a medieval torture device for boners. Marketed with “A Married Woman’s Guide to a Happier Relationship,” the makers suggest women can take charge of their sex lives with a dick lockdown that’ll prevent their man from masturbating. Ha! Ain’t nothin’ gonna stop a boner— well, except maybe the woman who purchases this contraption. Gasp at all the crazy (and sort of NSFW) model options, after the jump! [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
