Slate’s “Dear Prudence” gets the best letters. This week, “Wishing I’d Got to Him First” wrote in, asking for advice about reversing her husband’s vasectomy. You see, her husband was married before, and his ex-wife “required” him to get his tubes cut because she did not want children. Then, she left him for another man. Now, “Wishing” is married to a man who can’t give her kids, and she wants them — bad.
“We’ve looked into having my husband’s vasectomy reversed, but the cost is prohibitive—around $15,000—and the procedure is not covered by health insurance. Would it be appropriate to approach Leanne or pursue her in civil court to recoup the cost of the procedure?”

My dream boyfriend is filming a movie in lower Manhattan, otherwise known as my old neighborhood. Why, God, why?! [New York City, 5/01/09]
UPDATE: According to Curbed, The Gos is actually doing research for a role in “Blue Valentine,” in which he plays a mover. So he’s working with a moving company all day. Best of all, he’s in the East Village, which may or may not be my neighborhood and — [Sorry guys -- Amelia ducked out on this post before she could finish, probably because she's off asking Ryan to marry her. -- The Frisky Staff] Keep reading »
Chrysler is broke as a joke. Today, the car corporation entered bankruptcy court. The judge will examine the evidence, but this totally ‘80s video proves that he must consider one important thing: Who is going to employ spokesinger Celine Dion if Chrysler goes belly up? Keep reading »
You may think tights season is over, but think again. There’s still a chill in the air in some parts of the country — and your air conditioned office. Footed and footless tights in tie-dye, stripe, or zigzag patterns are a fun way to throw caution to the wind. When the temperature heats up, you can wear them with a long, billowy tunic. [Prices Vary, We Love Colors]

Since it’s Friday, and we’re all ready for a good laugh, and it’s going to be six whole days before we get our “Millionaire Matchmaker” fix, here’s a funny cartoon parody to tide us over until then. In it, Patty takes a look at video clips from some of our favorite millionaires this season, including “sex toy Dave,” that really dumb basketball player, and the dude from Las Vegas with the “Bozo hair.” Now, let’s “meet the penises that are going to do the picking this week,” shall we?

Some of the male models in Stand’s runway show wore gas masks. Were they an original part of the collection or a commentary on swine flu mania? [Sydney, Australia, 5/01/09] Keep reading »
The Zodiac Killer wasn’t just a serial psychopath—he was also a terrible dad. O, at least that’s what Deborah Perez is saying. Yesterday, she announced that her father, Guy Ward Hendrickson, was the notorious murderer who terrorized the Bay Area in the 1960s. Five Zodiac victims were confirmed, but in creepy letters he sent to local newspapers, he claimed 37. Not only are the crimes still unsolved, but his code remains uncracked.

His yearbook photo proves that back in high school Rudd was so totally clueless. But even after seeing Paul’s ‘80s hair DON’T, we still want to bone the fro-mantic actor. Heck, we’d even let him do some business in the front and party in the back. Keep reading »
Ann Ward is by leaps and bounds the most awkward girl to appear on “America’s Next Top Model.” At 6’2″ she towered over the other already-tall contestants and she had a Vivien Lee-sized waist that caused controversy before Cycle 15 even started. Oh, and her personality. Ann is not just soft-spoken—when she speaks, it actually sounds like it hurts her to force out words—and she is shy to the millioneth degree. While Ann continuously blew the judge’s away with her photos over the course of the season, when it came to walking the runway she was like a baby giraffe to take its first steps. And when it came to shooting commercials, it was just hard to watch. See: her falling over and over again and breaking into tears during the roller skating commercial.
But now, SPOILER ALERT, Ann is no longer the season’s the freaky girl. She is America’s Next Top Model. She somehow managed to out-model her icy blonde competitor, Chelsey, and will get the most high fashion placement the show has offered this far—a spread in Vogue Italia as well as representation by an agency. Ann, of course, represents a familiar “Top Model” archetype—the ugly duckling Tyra hopes to turn into a swan. Let’s take a look back at Ann’s sisters in awkward. Keep reading »
