“Not my most proud moment, it was humiliating. But now let’s move on. Not that I don’t think it’s no one’s business, but I think I’ve done a good job with replacing negative things with positive things.”
– Kim Kardashian on her infamous sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J in Allure. As for appearing on the cover of Playboy, she says:
“It’s nothing that I regret — being on the cover of Playboy is very iconic. I was like, ‘OK, I’m proud to do this and to show people that I don’t have to be stick-skinny to be looked at as a sex symbol, and to me that’s not what’s attractive anyway.’ So I was all for it, although I was very nervous.”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately (or, OK, were maybe on summer vacation somewhere exotic, lucky) you know that Vera Wang has been the talk of the (fashion) town. Thanks to Chelsea Clinton‘s exquisite Wang-designed gown, and now Hilary Duff‘s supposed altar attire, Vera Wang is the it designer du jour for wedding couture. (Not like she was ever out of style; she’s always been a celebrity favorite, but Wang has been racking up tons of high-profile weddings this summer.) Keep reading »
Sinead, say it isn’t so! Sinead O’Connor announced on her website that she and her new husband, Barry Herridge, are splitting 18 days after they married in Las Vegas. Sinead blamed the split on the influence of people in Herridge’s family who didn’t approve of their union, especially in light of rumors about Sinead in the press. She wrote:
“Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband’s life. And also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don’t drink. My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage. It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear.”
Sinead wished her soon-to-be ex well, calling him a wonderful person and saying, ”A woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free.” Sad to see their “cock in mouth situation” come to an end.
Sinead’s (third!) marriage joins a long line of short celeb marriages. Keep clicking to see some of the other speedy celebrity marriages that met an early demise.
It smells like … Sex Pistols spirit.
The iconic British punk band is getting its own themed fragrance thanks to a partnership with Fragrance and Beauty Limited. Guess the group who once promoted anarchism with their hit anthem “Anarchy in the U.K.” has made peace with the man by going corporate? Who knows. Anyhow, we’re not sure capturing the essence of punk rock would smell all that good (the last time we checked, it smelled like sweat and cigarettes), but the makers have translated this “revolution in a bottle” thusly: “Resisting tradition, fighting conformity and disregarding aromatic conventions it leaves a fresh, restless bite of lemon, sharpened and intensified by a defiant black pepper. Electrified by aldehydes, the fragrance exudes pure energy, pared down and pumped up by leather, shot through with heliotrope and brought back down to earth by a raunchy patchouli.” We’d like to say this is a joke, but it does seem you can actually purchase it.

Some of us here at The Frisky have yet to get on board with Foursquare, the mobile “check-in” app that lets others see where you are. If you’re not into using the service to virtually navigate your social life, the company may still appeal to you yet: Foursquare recently announced a discount deal with the Gap. Users who check into Gap locations through August 22 will get 25 percent off their purchase. (If you’ve tried these mobile discount things by waving your iPhone in a clerk’s face and seen their “huh?” reaction, not to worry—the check-in gives you a discount code just in case.) Another place you might shop that’s now offering a Foursquare discount? Certain Steve Madden stores are offering 20 percent off purchases of $50 or more from now through September 30. Keep reading »
