Beyonce has had great success as a singer/songwriter and a modicum of success as an actress — She was great in “Dreamgirls,” but let’s not forget she didn’t win the Oscar. Yet, she’s always willing to heap more onto her plate. Now, she is in talks with DC Comics and Warner Bros. to play the first black Wonder Woman. Beyonce will bring a physical prowess and flexibility unrivaled by the other actresses linked to this role, Jessica Biel, Katie Holmes and Evangeline Lilly. But do we really need to see Beyonce mimic another woman or character? I don’t think so. I say, she should hone her acting skills by taking roles for stand-alone characters. After the jump, check out a list of Beyonce’s movies and the woman or character she impersonated. Keep reading »
Tumblr is the awesome blogging platform out there right now. Unlike Typepad or Blogger, you don’t need to know a lick of HTML to post thoughts or images onto your own blog from your computer or phone. Best of all, it also allows you to follow other Tumblr bloggers via your dashboard, similar to the way you’d follow websites you like via an RSS feed. Even if you just want a place to post your favorite photos for friends and family to see, or compile favorite quotes, Tumblr makes it idiot proof, and the more bloggers you follow on your dashboard, the more cool information, pictures, and articles you’ll discover. After the jump, some of my favorite Tumblogs to follow.

We’re getting a big jump on one of our New Year’s resolutions for 2009, which is to stop drinking coffee. We’ve decided its negative effects on our skin, the whiteness of our teeth, and our sleep schedule outweigh its awesomeness. So instead of downing 2-3 cups of joe every morning, we’re switching to green tea. To help the transition, we’ve got our eye on this adorable robin’s egg blue kabuki teapot. It will look cute on our kitchen counter! [$28, Rare Device] Keep reading »
E., my best guy friend in college, believed that women should eliminate giving handjobs from their hook-up repertoire. “They always end up either hurting or not being satisfying at all,” he asserted. “The bottom line: there’s no way you can do it as well as he can.” It did make perfect sense. Why should I — or any woman, for that matter — attempt to please my guy with something of which he’s perfected the art? That would be like making Italian food for Mario Batali, or giving Spencer Pratt of “The Hills” lessons on how to be a douchebag. Keep reading »
The “Sex and the City” movie sequel is all but confirmed — Kim Cattrall says it’s on, Sarah Jessica Parker says a few details still need to be ironed out, but given the success of the first film this summer, I don’t think we’ll be able to avoid another Carrie & Co. chick flick fest. So what do we want out of round two? Entertainment Weekly had their own ideas and, sorry, we were a little bored. Miranda a PTA mom? No thanks. Our brilliant plot line suggestions, after the jump… Keep reading »
Unitards are okay if you work for Cirque de Soleil, a ballet company, or if you’re a deep sea diver, but no way should regular people go walking around in them. While Serta seems to have a thing for the jumpsuit, you’d think, Vera Wang, one of the top American designers would know better. But apparently she’s been huffing the fumes of success and forgot that rolling around in a bed in a full body spandex suit is not cool — especially if you’re the boss strutting around your workplace. Clearly no one tells her no, but I wonder who had the guts to be her camel toe checker? Keep reading »
With the state of the economy as it is (sad, very sad), U.S. retailers are cutting orders an average of 10 to 15 percent and expecting reduced spending in the coming months. You might think that when shoppers do make a purchase, they’ll stick to buying basics that can be be worn more than once without anyone noticing. However, JC Report spoke to several retailers who said they were seeing an increase in the buying of pieces that make a statement. “To some degree, there’s an element of fantasy going on—our customers are buying more daring pieces, perhaps to escape from what’s going on in the world,” said Jenny Le, manager of Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles.
A look through my closet, and those of other Frisky staffers, backs up this theory. The last three things I’ve purchased: a dress covered in giant hot pink polka dots, a black dress with an extremely drapey neckline that can definitely not be worn to work, and a pair of neon tights with different colored legs. None of these items can be worn on a daily, or even weekly, basis without me becoming known as “the girl who always wears that crazy polka dot dress,” but they’re exciting articles of clothing that will put me in a good mood whenever I wear them. Heck, even thinking of them hanging out in my closet makes me happy. Keep reading »
I’m sure you all are familiar with the insane amount of “I Heart My Boyfriend” clothing and other items that are sold on the back pages of tabloid magazines. And I’m sure I’m not alone when I say, “I really hate those things!” My rant continues after the jump. Keep reading »
The morning after a recent tryst, I was mortified to find two giant purple hickies on my neck. Even more painful: I limped through the rest of the weekend because we had gotten a little (ahem) enthusiastic in the sack. Determined to avoid more bedroom battle-scars, I turned to science to find out how to get off without getting injured. My tricks, after the jump… Keep reading »
There are some dates that make you want to open the freezer and drink straight from the vodka bottle the minute you come home. Last Saturday night was one of those dates. He was cute, blond, dimpled; he screamed Abercrombie and frat houses.
After numerous conversations with girlfriends demanding I open my world and date men other than my type (old, neurotic and insane), I decided to go on a date with a clean-cut guy who was my age, normal, and seemingly had all his marbles. Keep reading »
