Actually, You Can Be Too Thin, Pretzel Crisps

God, I love me some pretzel crisps — dipped in hummus and with slices of cheese, they are delish. But I am mad at them. Their new ad campaign is straight-up wrong. Look, I get it, the appeal of pretzel crisps is that they are thin like crackers and, in theory, better for you than big ol’ bready regular pretzels. But they knew they were being shady with their “You Can Never Be Too Thin” campaign because people will automatically — and rightly so — associate “thin” with weight and “too thin” with anorexia and other eating disorders. Edgy! Also lame. Don’t make me go back to pita crisps or carrot sticks — I’m warning you. [via Young Manhattanite and NYC The Blog] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga And Eminem Top The VMA Nominations Tally

Yesterday, MTV announced the nominees for the 2010 Video Music Awards. And good thing Lady Gaga didn’t let anyone steal her creativity out of her vagina, because her over-the-top videos this year brought her a record 13 nominations. (Seriously, the people who’ve come closest are Missy Elliot in 2001 for “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lady Marmalade.” And Beyoncé with nine nominations last year.) Gaga is even competing against herself for Video of the Year—”Bad Romance” and “Telephone” are both nominated. Keep reading »

Are You Snooty (Or Weird) Enough To Make The New York Times Wedding Announcements?

To some peeps, showing up in The New York Times‘ prestigious wedding announcements is the be-all and end-all. How else will anybody who’s anybody know you’re to wed a fancy-pants Harvard Ph.D. who’s a direct descendant of Muffy von Buffington, IV? (Or, you know, a Frisky blogger like our girl Wendy.)

It’s hard to say whether WeddingCredential.com, a new search engine which exclusively searches the most recent 3,910 NYT wedding announcements for key phrases, is enabling this show-off behavior or mocking it.

Who really cares how many times Harvard popped up (465) or Goldman Sachs (65)? Some of us aren’t so fancy (or smart … or rich). After the jump, let’s find out if among these well-educated captains of industry, there’s anyone a little bit strange like us. Keep reading »

The Duggars Are Aiming For Baby #20


My ovaries hurt last night watching the premiere of “19 Kids And Counting” on TLC featuring Michelle and Jim Bob and their army of children. Even though baby Josie, the latest addition to the Duggar clan, was born four months premature and they have been nursing her to health (she can’t poop!), Michelle and Jim Bob don’t plan to stop their marathon baby-making. They want number 20. “That would be wonderful!  We would love another person to add to our family. We will wait and see and take it one at a time,” Michelle announced. No rest in sight for that weary womb. [Radar] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: When Does “Concerned” Become “Nosy”?

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend came home from hanging out with his male cousin with a startling report: the cousin had an ugly, yellowing bruise on his upper arm. The cousin also needed to buy a new cell phone because his had been smashed. We noticed his Facebook status had been updated over the weekend to say that he’d made his recent ex-girlfriend cry.

“What happened?!” I gasped. My boyfriend shrugged.

“What, you didn’t ask?” I sputtered. These two are as close as brothers. They’ll be best men at each other’s weddings. But he shrugged again and responded, “I didn’t want to be nosy.” Keep reading »
