The Ladies Of Election Day: Who Won And Lost

election main jpg
Depending on your political leanings, Election Day yesterday was either a smashing success or reason to stick your head in the oven. I’m particularly interested in women who run for office (although obviously the votes of men in Congress impact women’s lives as well), so I have been watching their races closely. I’ve rounded up 10 races with female candidates, both victories and defeats, including Christine O’Donnell, Kirsten Gillibrand, Meg Whitman, Sharron Angle, and Carly Fiornia. If you’ve seen other interesting articles about the female candidates I left out, please share them with all of us in the comments. And stay tuned tomorrow for a comprehensive roundup of sexist incidents — against both women and men — during the 2010 election. Please email me any incidents you’d like me to include at {encode=”jessica@thefrisky.com” title=”jessica@thefrisky.com”}.

Beauty Test Drive: MAC Eye Brows Tool

Despite being able to grow thick hair really fast on my head, I can’t seem to grow in my eyebrows regardless of how long I wait between threading sessions. The hair always grows where I don’t want it and remains sparse where I do. So I’ve been filling in my brows with pencils and powders for almost a decade. And I think I’ve finally found the best one.

Fall TV Guide: “Skating With The Stars” One-Ups “DWTS”


Ice skating has never been my favorite activity. See: me clinging to the side wall for dear life during every ice skating birthday party I went to as a kid. But ABC’s newest show, “Skating with the Stars,” is seriously upping the ante on “Dancing with the Stars” by taking C-listers and having them strap on skates, to not only learn how to dance on ice, but also to do lifts, spins, jumps, and other Olympic-caliber moves. We are expecting some hard spills, nasty bruises, and probably a few broken bones.

Last night, ABC announced the cast for this new series. Find out who they are, after the jump! Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Why Right-Wing Fruitcakes And Liberal Weenies Can’t Fall In Love

I don’t think it’s possible for two people of opposing political beliefs to date and fall in love. If Romeo & Juliet were written today, the beloved daughter of the Capulets would kick the emo son of the Montagues in the face before he made it over the balcony. It’s more likely that two people of different races, socioeconomic backgrounds, or religions get it on than two people who belong to different political parties. Forget the obnoxious swirling graphics on cable news — politics is not a sport. It’s a bloodless war that decides how groups of people live with one another, and like any war, it’s a struggle to hold on to one’s humanity. But I think it’s almost impossible for a liberal to look at a conservative, or vice versa, and see anything but an enemy. This is great when it comes to a turf war between political mafias. But it’s bad news when it comes to love. Keep reading »

Does The Bottle For Katy Perry’s Perfume Make You Want To Purr?

So unless you’ve been under a rock or don’t understand the evolution of celebrity branding, the fact that Katy Perry is releasing a fragrance shouldn’t be news to you. (We even showed you the extremely sexy and playful ad here.) But now, we’re getting a glimpse at the fragrance bottle, and we have to say it looks exactly like we’d imagine a fragrance called Purr would. Keep reading »

Ready For A Close-Up

This might look like a photo from a beauty editorial in a fashion magazine, but it’s actually a painting by hyper-realist artist Simon Hennessey. I’ve spent approximately four hours examining those exquisitely detailed pores and whispering, “No freaking way! That’s paint?” (As you can tell I am an eloquent art critic). If you’ve got time to kill, check out his online gallery for more mind-blowing examples. I might need to clear my schedule for the rest of the day to make time for necessary gawking and gasping. [Simon Hennessey] Keep reading »
