Quotable: Russell Brand And Katy Perry’s Mom Flirt Over Email

“They really didn’t know about him … They give people the benefit of the doubt and it’s up to the person to mess it up … He’s very charming with them and he has an ongoing email love with my mom and she loves it. She flirts with him, which is totally inappropriate and I tell him to stop.”

Katy Perry says that her parents have always liked her fiance, Russell Brand. Maybe a little too much? [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Little Girl Hears Her Parents Saying “Uhh-Uhh” Through Their Bedroom Wall


When I was 11 years old, I woke up in the middle of the night and heard very upsetting sounds coming from down the hall. It sounded like my mom was sick, she was moaning so loudly. Concerned for her well-being, I went bursting into my parents’ room and, well, let’s just say my mom wasn’t sick but suddenly I was. Luckily, this little girl had enough sense to stay in her room and just listen to what her parents were up to. You’re both in trouble now! (For the record, the way these parents are handling the situation is more amusing and less humiliating than the way my dad did — the next morning he joked, “So, I guess you saw your mother and I making the beast with two backs last night” and I basically couldn’t look him in the eye for the next six months. The King Lear reference didn’t make it any easier.) [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Man Lets Date Get Hit By Foul Ball — But That’s Not Why They Broke Up?


On Monday night, Bo Wyble and Sara Saco-Vertiz went to a Houston Astros baseball game. When a foul ball made a beeline for them in the stands, Wyble ducked and Saco-Verdiz was hit in the arm. The entire incident was caught on camera and the jumbotron. The video of this chivalry fail went viral on the web and Wyble and Saco-Verdiz appeared on “The Early Show” this morning to discuss the incident — and their relationship. Shocker! Only four days after this infamous date, the couple is finished — but Saco-Verdiz swears it has nothing to do with the fact that her ex caused her to get hit by a baseball. It was the facial hair, wasn’t it? [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: Miss Selfridge

Gone are the days when shopping from an overseas website seemed absurd. Many, like the U.K.’s Miss Selfridge, offer flat-rate shipping, about $12 in this case, to the U.S. You no longer have to save your pennies for a shopping excursion to get the London look because these moderately priced, even with the exchange rate, items will be hand-delivered via a courier. But feel free to tell people you bought your fashions in Europe. We won’t tell. Keep reading »

Packing List: Sporty Weekend In The Berkshires

berkshires weekend jpg
Every Thursday throughout the summer, we’re bringing you our Packing List, a guide to gearing up for your weekend jaunts, which is what the season’s all about!

Sometimes you don’t need a glitzy city or a hot beach for a relaxing weekend getaway. We like to stay active at The Frisky, and the last time we went to the beautiful Berkshires in Massachusetts, we spent our time riding bikes (free fun!), kayaking, eating ice cream (cheap fun!), and playing tennis (or, um, pretending to play tennis). Pack some cute, quick-dry tops from adorable tennis clothing line Loup. A skort is great for a casual bike ride so as not to flash the world. For longer biking trips, strap on a CamelBak to stay hydrated. And a cute plaid dress will take you from day to night, no problem.
