I Dream Of Jeannie Coming To Theaters, But Hopefully Not So Sexist?

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.

The Daily Hotness Slideshow: DILFS

Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday and we here at The Frisky love baby-making! So, while being a celeb is a tough job, being a dad is even more demanding.

Check out all eleven, after the jump….

Sofia Coppola: Daddy’s Girl

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]

Quote Of The Day: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl

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:

  1. “The first thing you should know about me is that I’m a whore.”
  2. “I always use men’s deodorant, never perfume. A professional never lets her client leave smelling of women.”
  3. “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 »

The Nookie Know-It-All: His Cigs And Your Cervix

“Can a woman get cervical cancer if a smoker routinely goes down on her?” — Paranoid About My Puffer, Houston, TX

There hasn’t been any real medical research to support this claim, but you’re not totally crazy. If I had to take a guess, I’d say having a smoker go down on you is like putting Equal in your coffee. It’s not awesome for you, but if you don’t eat eight bathtubs full of it a day you’ll be fine.

    The Frisky TV: Could You Date Someone With Different Political Views?

    There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.
