  • The Top Five “Hot” Women That Give Us The Icks

    After Ellen put together a list of the 100 Hottest Women according to women (not, as most of these lists tend to be decided, according to men). The list was pleasing and interesting in the way you’d expect a list like this would be, if the people determining it didn’t suffer from big-boobs-equals-eyes-glazed-over-syndrome. We were psyched to see Tina Fey top the list, as well as Ellen Page, Katherine Moennig, Kate Winslet, and Mia Kirshner. But as usual, this list made us think about the ladies who didn’t make the list that always make the grade in hot list put together by men. Which women do men find insanely hot that we just don’t understand? Our Top Five list begins with:

    5. Nicole Scherzinger from The Pussycat Dolls I would include the entire group of these assinine felines, but sources tell me dudes only find Nicole hot. First of all, I find all that prancing around, talking about pushing on buttons really offensive to, you know, girl power, not to mention the opposite of sexy. She’s like a blowup doll, only with less personality. Keep reading »

    The Mother Of Invention Could Be You

    Still upset you didn’t win the school science fair? Well, Whirlpool is giving you a chance to come in first place as an adult. The company has just announced their 4th Annual Mother of Invention Contest for crafty women with clever product ideas. Prizes include a $20,000 grant for the winner, four runners up will get $6,000 a piece, enrollment in business boot camp, and of course some will even be awarded appliances. Past award-winning innovations include a baby bottle nipple that adjusts to fit the sizes of a variety of bottles, a plunger that stores under the hood of the toilet, a waterproof bra, and a germaphobe’s dream cleaning service for children’s toys. So while the competition is stiff, the catch is, you also have to have been through labor. But you know, mothers know best. [Start Up Spark] Keep reading »

    Faux-Virgin Rejected By French Court

    Lately virginity has seemed trendier than skinny pants. But just like the slim slacks, chastity also doesn’t fit everyone’s style. When our cool Catherine posted about Australian FHM’s poll where 28% of men said they hoped to marry virgins, we all shrugged — a guy can dream can’t he? We here at The Frisky have been enjoying the sexual revolution, and we thought the dudes of the world were too. Alas, no. This week, a French Court annulled a Muslim couple’s marriage because the bride wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night. When the man, in his 30’s (?!), didn’t have blood-stained sheets from his wedding bed to show his family, they decided to take her to court. While plenty of girls lose their hymen nowadays from activities like gymnastics, the bride confessed she had lied because she didn’t think he would marry her if she told the truth. So, under an antiquated French law that protects the “essential quality” insisted upon by the groom, the marriage was null and void. Boo! This verdict has enraged feminists around and the world as well as the Prime Minister of France and the rector at a Mosque in Paris who all see the ruling as reverting women to being commodities for men. Although, something good has come out of all this — this poor woman was saved from a lifetime sentence with a seriously unrealistic and demanding husband. [Yahoo News] Keep reading »

    StyleHiving: Sweet & Flirty Dresses

    Summer is in the air, a time of year to get in touch with your softer side — softer hairstyles (my favorite being soft, loose, beachy-waves), softer makeup, softer colors, and softer silhouettes. While my personal style is kind of on the edgy/eclectic side, I have a friend who seldom navigates away from flirty, ultra-femme styles. She rocks this look everywhere, from formal dates, to casual dates, from upscale bars to seedy, dive bars, this gal loves to embrace her femininity. This style is also a favorite of one of my favorite fashion trend-setters, Zooey Deschanel (one half of Frisky favorite, She & Him), who appropriately graces the cover of Lucky‘s July issue in a sweet floaty number, a style she’s loved for as long as she can remember.

    K-Swiss Should Keep It Real

    Sex sells. But what about purity? A K-Swiss ad campaign features tennis star Anna Kournikova in a white sports bra and a teeny-tiny mini skirt, showing off her midriff like a high school ho. Now that they’ve got your attention with some T&A, what’s the slogan say? “Keep It Pure.” Um, what?! While we’re sure that Anna Kournikova is a lady, when there’s a billboard of her rolling around on her back on the tennis court, chastity doesn’t come to mind. And why should it? We’re not sure why K-Swiss is trying to sell sneakers with abstinence — something that even their cover girl Kournikova, who has been doing the horizontal mambo with Enrique Iglesias for years, doesn’t represent. And everyone knows, like a modern woman, it’s impossible for white sneakers to not get a little dirty. Keep reading »

    Slideshow: Political PDA!

    With all the hullabaloo over Barack and Michelle Obama’s much watched fist-bump on Tuesday, we started thinking about how it compared to other political public displays of affection. Who could forget the never-ending kiss at the Democratic National Convention between Al and Tipper Gore? Some people are still holding back their lunch. Republican Presidential nominee John McCain has a PDA pattern of his own — at every rally he make sure to thank wife, Cindy, then gives her a polite kiss on the cheek. For others, as well as another photo of that fist-bump (we couldn’t resist), click after the jump… Keep reading »
