The sad thing is I actually know people who would eat this: a vendor at the Wisconsin State Fair is serving up a cheeseburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme donut as a bun. You can get it with chocolate-covered bacon, too! But your coronary artery wants to know: How many calories? Keep reading »
“Sasha Grey Sparks Bush Backlash”! That was the headline for the always-astute Tracy Clark-Flory’s Broadsheet post on porn star Sasha Grey getting totally naked on the latest episode of HBO’s “Entourage.” Of course, in this day and age, the nudity itself wasn’t shocking. (After all, at this point, who hasn’t seen Grey nude?) It was her pubic hair that became the hirsuite cause célèbre. Keep reading »
A few months back, I told you all about The CW’s new series, “Hellcats,” starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale. While I can’t wait for new fall television in general, I have a special tie to “Hellcats.” The series is based on my book, CHEER!: Inside The Secret World Of College Cheerleading, a non-fiction romp following three top squads through their 2007 season. I was on set for two days of the filming of “Hellcats,” but all of a sudden, the fact that it’s actually going to be on TV soon has hit home. Last night, I saw two commercials for the show. And this morning on my way to work, I turned the corner and ran into a poster just a block away from The Frisky office. “Hellcats” premieres Wednesday, September 8th at 9pm. After the jump, my favorite new previews. Keep reading »
Am I the only one who can’t tell the assistants on “The Rachel Zoe Project” apart? I thought these gals were the same person until I heard Rachel whining both the names “Jordan” and “Ashley.” True, Ashley Avignone‘s hair is a little darker than Jordan’s. But the women have eerily similar facial features and must shop out of the same Zoe-approved closet. In fact, I swear I’ve seen them somewhere before … as Whitney Port of “The City.” They’ve all got the same long blonde hair, the same pillowy lips, and the same “I spend a lot of time grooming my eyebrows” demeanor. Must be fashion-bot uniform. Keep reading »
Not to get all touchy-feely on you guys, but I am a person who wants to improve myself. I spent months not dating so that I could figure out what I’m looking for in a relationship and analyze my dating patterns. I’ve been a little startled to realize that, when I click with someone, things go amazingly for a few weeks. And then at the month mark, almost uniformly, they lose interest. I’ve thought about what I might be doing to lead to this, but just can’t put my fingers on the magic bullet. At this point, I feel like I need some outside feedback.
So when Tall Guy, the last guy this happened with, IMed me and asked how I felt about being friends, I saw it as an opportunity. “Of course, I’d like to be your friend,” I typed back. “But I do need to hear a bit more from you about what felt off with us. Would you be willing to share?” Keep reading »
