Or as she put it, “I’m not retreating, so much as advancing in another direction.” May I be so bold as to commend the Governor for this extraordinary act of patriotism? Surely this has nothing to do with that little Vanity Fair story does it? [CNN] Keep reading »
Kerry Washington is back in the edgy role of Marybeth, a transgender prostitute with a drug addiction in “Life is Hot in Cracktown.” Based on the book by Buddy Giovinazzo, who also wrote and directed the film, “Cracktown” is a haunting tale of intertwining stories surrounding the crack-cocaine epidemic.
The Bronx, N.Y., native is known as one of the most respected actresses of this generation for her work in films like “Ray,” “The Last King of Scotland” and Spike Lee’s “She Hate Me.” Washington has never been afraid of provocative roles and says, “This film allows us to have a window into a world that we normally wouldn’t pay attention to,” referring to “Cracktown.”
Here, Kerry Washington sounds off on “Cracktown,” playing a transgender woman, homophobia and much more. Continue reading…

The deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett kept us, sadly, preoccupied this week—but this is The Frisky, so we still found some time to have fun, too! If you missed it the first time around, here’s what we were talking about.
Just in time for the 4th of July, Gwyneth Paltrow has voiced her disdain for America…again. This time the GOOP master has Latin lust for Spain, saying, “It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it’s from 500 B.C., it’s incredible.” Yeah sure Gwynnie, Spain’s old, but in terms of years I think it should be quality over quantity. It’s totally fair to judge a country based on how long they hold onto the mullet, which in Spain’s case is at least two decades too long. Keep reading »
It’s 4th of July weekend, which means you’re gonna be busy, sun-soaked and let’s face it, drunk. Since you’ll be useless on Sunday anyway, you might as well take it easy while reliving American history with “Public Enemies” or you can take the munchkins to “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” but keep in mind that 3-D isn’t the most hangover-friendly dimension.

Here’s my boyfriend, Rob Thomas, performing this morning on “The Today Show.” Amelia watched and says he’s icky and his sunglasses were douchey. But I say if anyone talks smack about the lead singer of Matchbox Twenty, who I’ve had a crush on since I was 14, I’m going to be handing out knuckle sandwiches. [NYC, 7/3/09] Keep reading »
A little bit of distrust goes a long way. In the wake of the Sanford scandal I am trying to get a better handle of why we lie and how we can tell if someone is telling us the truth. My interest piqued during the political scandal of the Italian Prime Minister. However, it began several years ago when a male friend of mine began telling me stories about a new woman in his life.
I was a good listener until he asked the question, “So what do you think?”
Did he really want to know that she lying and manipulating him? Continue reading… Keep reading »

Christian Audigier, purveyor of all things rhinestone-encrusted and hideously illustrated, is planning to show at Spring 2010 Fashion Week in Paris this Fall. This is the guy who designs for the likes of Ed Hardy, usually shows his creations at L.A. or Miami Swim Fashion Week, and likely clothed the greasy dudes who were grinding all up on you at the club last weekend. So while designers like Christian Lacroix struggle with bankruptcy, Christian Audigier is zeroing in on their legitimate fashion turf with his truly illegitimate “designs.” This makes us kind of sad.
