Rihanna’s got hit singles, happenin’ style, and a hot attitude. We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy! But apparently Chris Brown is. So, who is the
rapper rapper/R&B singer she’s so comfy with that he A) gets to see her hair wet, B) comments that she needs to “cover up” to stop attracting male admirers, and C) still claims they’re just friends? Keep reading »
We have a thing for enamel jewelry at The Frisky (check out this slideshow), so we’re totally in love with this ring. The bold gold outline, abstract rose design and knuckle-to-knuckle size will definitely get you noticed. This ring is a stand-alone accessory–it should be worn with a simple timepiece and small earrings, so it doesn’t have to compete. [$24, Bebe.com] Keep reading »
Sure, there are plenty of stories in the news about women stabbing their husbands and the like, but there are also ladies who are doing spectacular things these days, especially right now with the Olympics going on. Below, ten fabulous females who make us proud.
The oldest Olympic swimming medalist ever at 41, Dara Torres completed her fifth Olympic games this weekend with two silver medals, just missing a gold in the 50-meter freestyle. Not only did she prove that women can be competitive even as they get older (her age was more than the gold-and bronze-medal winners combined), but she’s also the ultimate working mother, with a two-year-old daughter named Tessa.

Studly swimmer Michael Phelps is on everyone’s lips, yet shockingly still single. Although he shares a close relationship with his mama, the athlete has put off his personal life to become a well-trained machine. As the Olympics come to a close, Michael has broken records, but no one’s heart. So, now that he’ll have some free time, here’s who The Frisky thinks he should test the waters with:
America Ferrera: The sweetheart star of Ugly Betty, Phelps could easily just say he won all those gold medals for this America! Smart and successful, with a bright smile to match his — Ferrera could give this swimmer something to hold onto.

Confession: I’m having a secret affair with my 21-year old Irish doorman. It’s such a secret, not even HE knows. The other night, when my fiancé was out, my doorman – I don’t even know his name – came upstairs to my apartment to replace three light bulbs. As he stood on the ladder, screwing in those bulbs, telling me all about going to school in Dublin and spending the summer in New York, I felt enormously guilty. My fiancé wasn’t home and this attractive, foreign, younger man was doing menial labor in my apartment, steps away from my bedroom. It felt kind of like cheating, even though it was far from it in actuality, and cheating in actuality is something I would never, ever, ever do. Keep reading »
A few soap stars invaded the nation’s capital over the weekend for a CBS Watch! magazine photo shoot. They were dressed as presidential couples, but added their signature soap sexiness and romance — Jackie Kennedy with a heaving bosom, Bill Clinton actually embracing Hillary, and George and Martha in an erotic fantasy. Terri Colombino, who plays a woman that has been married six times on As the World Turns, donned a hand-painted white couture gown that retails for $2,950 to re-create Nancy Reagan’s 1981 inaugural ball look. According to the Washington Post, she did look like Reagan, but with considerably more cleavage. Ronald Reagan was played by Austin Peck, Colombino’s soap opera husband. These sexy, yet tasteful photos are sure to trump Tyra Banks’s Michelle Obama-inspired photo spread because they offer a bit of nostalgia and don’t just cash in on a craze. This issue of Watch! comes out in January, a perfect time considering the new President of the United States will be enjoying his inaugural festivities. [Washington Post] Keep reading »

The mayor of Mount Isa, a mining town in Australia, is encouraging women with sub-par looks to move to the area, because he thinks they’ll find happiness there. According to Reuters, the mayor was quoted in the Townsville Bulletin last week, saying of Mount Isa, “Quite often you will see walking down the street a lass who is not so attractive with a wide smile on her face. Whether it is recollection of something previous or anticipation for the next evening, there is a degree of happiness.” Supposedly, the town, famous for cowboys and mining, lead, silver, copper, and zinc, has a shortage of women, with just one for every five men there. The mayor seems to think that less pretty women would do well there with less competition, and men would be happy with them, because they don’t have any other options. And, even if this is true, neither side (the Mount Isa men or the less-beautiful women there) wants to agree with him. Mount Isa’s council members and chamber of commerce have been swamped with phone calls from men and women complaining about the mayor’s comments, but he refuses to apologize. [Reuters] Keep reading »
I was newly on the rebound (read: heartbroken), and had been invited by a friend who knew the deal to a downtown hipster party full of sexy, artsy guys. I proceeded to immediately knock back a few free drinks, then flirt my way through the throngs of smart artistes. One struck my fancy, with his Southern drawl, earnest voice, and red hair. He was sweet, and super talented, and cute in a non-overpowering way. I knew he liked me, but he wasn’t putting the hard sell on getting in my pants. So of course I went home with him.
We got to his apartment and tipsily made out, and soon our clothes were off. I got on top of him and we started having sex. Now, I’m a talkative girl whether I’ve been drinking or not, and one of the places I love to run my mouth is in the bedroom. I don’t remember exactly what I said—the sex wasn’t that earth-shattering—but I know there were a few “That feels good”s and whisperings of his name. I’d thought he was having just as good a time as I was, until we talked the next day. Keep reading »
Infidelity, betrayal and abuse are very difficult things to forgive, but most people resist the urge to cause a partner bodily-harm. However, there are some women that go against their better judgment and exact revenge on their guy. Most recently, the Premier of the Turks & Caicos Islands, Michael Misick, claims that his estranged wife, actress Lisa Raye McCoy-Misick, attacked him at his mansion in Turks & Caicos. She claims that she was refused entry to their home and was forcibly removed. In any event, both were taken to the hospital for bite injuries. “Whilst it is my sincere wish to avoid unnecessary conflict, I shall not be intimidated, nor shall those individuals whose job it is to protect and represent me,” said a statement released by Lisa Raye. The Misick’s separated after rumors of an affair between the premier and BET on-air personality Rocsi surfaced.
While I hate to admit that I’m throwing up a girl-power fist right now, I can’t help to think of all the other famous and not-so famous women that got revenge on their guys for infidelity or mistreatment, whether real or perceived. So check out this list after the jump. Keep reading »
