Whenever I eat watermelon, I feel like I’m not really eating anything — watermelon is the fruit equivalent of celery. But nutrition experts say that the juicy fruit has tons of Vitamin A and C, as well as lycopene, an antioxidant that might help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. Oh, and spitting seeds helps develop muscles in your lips. (I made up the last one, but it seems like it could be true, doesn’t it?) [Newswise] Keep reading »

Your pops keeps two areas of his life a closely guarded secret: how he obtained his sass-quashing old-man strength, and what he really wants for Father’s Day. To help with the latter, we brought in Patrick Duffy, the Ultimate Dad, a title he earned by successfully raising many television children (Step By Step) and sleeping with Suzanne Somers.

From Broadway to Hollywood, the entertainment industry is all about remakes. Most of the time, the threat is not staying true to the original (um, the upcoming Smurfs movie that’s going to be live action?!). But in the case of the I Dream of Jeannie remake, our fear is it actually resembling the misogynistic capers of the early 60’s anti-feminist classic. Now, far be it for we NASA-loving Frisky gals to smack talk an astronaut in the space program heyday. However, the fictitious Major Nelson is a totally ungrateful do-bag that Jeannie calls “master.” Ick. Plus Jeannie never gets credit for always saving the day and she clearly runs the show! Although, perhaps there’s hope for the remake to right the wrongs of the antiquated TV show. Slated to write the screenplay is Mulan’s Rita Hsaio. So fingers crossed, she’ll empower this woman too.

Check out all eleven, after the jump….

The mark of a good dad is his kids, and when you’re Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, and our personal favorite, the Michael Jackson Disney World 3D experience, Captain EO, you’ve already set the bar pretty darn high for your children. But if there’s a woman awesome enough to fill her father’s film-making shoes it’s Sofia Coppola. With The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation, and Marie Antoinette to her credit, she is undoubtedly making him proud. The two recently posed together for Annie Leibovitz (the photog responsible for ruining Miley Cyrus’ career), who shot their ad for Louis Vuitton Journeys. Sure, it’s made to sell handbags, but it also shows just how supportive and loving their father/daughter relationship really is. The Coppola’s are the cutest! [Trend Hunter]

Secret Diary of a Call Girl, the new show about a high-class hooker in London, premieres on Showtime next week. The Frisky was lucky enough to get a sneak preview earlier this week, and now you can too (definitely NSFW though) at SHO.com. Here are three of the best lines from the series premiere:
- “The first thing you should know about me is that I’m a whore.”
- “I always use men’s deodorant, never perfume. A professional never lets her client leave smelling of women.”
- “Convince him you’re wet and you’re halfway there.”
To watch the first two episodes of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, visit SHO.com. The series officially airs Mondays at 10:30 pm right after Weeds.[Showtime] Keep reading »
