Score! Athletic Women Have Better Jobs And Make More Money

Even if you were the worst volleyball player on your middle school team, or if your parents dragged you kicking and screaming to basketball practice every week, chances are that you got some serious benefits out of playing an organized sport. A ton of research shows that women who played sports as kids and teens not only went further in their education, but landed better jobs and now make more money. In fact, one study showed that of women in executive positions, 82 percent played an organized sport after elementary school. And in general, while only 1 in 6 women identifies themselves as an “athlete,” that number shoots up to 1 in 2 for women who make $75K a year or more. That’s enough to make you kick a soccer ball around, no? Keep reading »

This weekend, “The Social Network,” a scripted movie about Facebook’s origins, opens nationwide. In honor of this momentous-ish occasion, we’ll be re-running some of our Facebook-related content that you might have missed, illustrating the good, bad, and ugly things the social networking site has brought into our previously status update-free lives. The piece below originally ran in Nov. 2009.

For anyone who is remotely active on Facebook, you no doubt have been faced at some point with inane updates on one of your friend’s kid’s colds or how wedding-planning was coming along for one of your engaged friends. That’s why, when parenting website Babble published their list of “Facebook’s Five Most Annoying Parents,” I immediately thought, “But what about all the annoying couples?” So, without further ado, I present Facebook’s Five Most Annoying Couples, after the jump.

Happy Birthday, Julie Andrews!

Happy 75th birthday to Julie Andrews. I don’t care how old she gets or how many parts she’s played, she will always be Mary Poppins to me. Here’s a little spoonful of sugar Julie Andrews style for you this Friday afternoon. Just remember: “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. Find the fun and SNAP! The job’s a game.” Thanks for the reminder Ms. Poppins! If only I could clean my apartment by snapping my fingers like that. I’d have a much better attitude about everything. Keep reading »

Tell Us Your Ghost Stories!

Happy October, everyone! In honor of the spookiest month of the year, we’d love to hear your scariest (but true!) ghost stories. I lived in a haunted apartment in college right across the street from an old cemetery and have some pretty wild stories from those two years. I’ll share my tales with you later, but first, let’s hear yours! I’m sure I’m not the only one with (ghostly) skeletons in her closet, so spill it! Keep reading »

Not only is Andrew Garfield cute (like the boy next door), tall (six feet) and talented (awarded Outstanding Newcomer and Most Promising Newcomer) but the dude is about to blow up. Sure, Variety put him on their list of “10 Actors to Watch” back in 2007, but they were off by a couple years. Plus, being on The Frisky’s “Celebs to Watch” is way more prestigious.

Click through our slideshow to find out which big movies you can catch the 27-year-old in and find out a few fun facts about him so when everyone starts making him the background on their desktop you can say, “Oh yeah, I knew about him way back before it was cool.”

Vanessa Minnillo: “Nick And I Shower Together Twice A Day!”

“We shower, honestly, at least twice a day. We shower in the morning and we shower at some point during the day or before bed. It’s so funny because we’ve turned it into an intimate time for each other. We both have our own shower heads so we just talk while we’re soaping up and doing our hair. It’s not a sexual thing and it’s not a romantic thing, it just becomes an intimate thing. You’re in your full form, so to speak, and you’re vulnerable and we just both let our guard down. I’ve had some of my most intimate conversations with him in the shower.”

Vanessa Minnillo reveals that she and boyfriend Nick Lachey do not share my aversion to showering. Although, I suppose I would shower more if a naked man was in there with me. [Parade] Keep reading »
