Romance On TV: No Love For Short Millionaires

There are times when I struggle being a person of limited height, i.e., when I want a box of cereal on the top shelf at the grocery store, when I need to replace the battery in my smoke alarm, or when I want to kiss a guy who is 6’4” and I’m not wearing heels. It’s tough being a bit of a shortie, and I’m a girl, so I can only imagine what men must go through, especially when it comes to dating.

On last night’s Millionaire Matchmaker, Joseph, 5’8″, struggles to find a woman who would date someone shorter than herself. Well, Joseph is most likely not 5’8″. Guys lie about their height more than they lie about the size of a particular body part. In our opinion, the problem with Joseph is not that he is short, or even that he lies about his height, but that he sees himself with a tall, model-esque woman. We have nothing against short guys dating tall girls — hello, Tom and Katie, not to mention every guy who dates a model or a Williams’ sister — but the fact that he’s ruling out the possibility of dating a short woman is disturbing, mostly because I don’t want anyone ruling me out.

The Daily Hotness: George Clooney

George Clooney just keeps getting tastier. We’d like to give this former ER doctor mouth to mouth! Especially now that he’s been immortalized in jellybeans. The already edible Clooney was appointed to the United Nations Peace Envoy in January, but now the tall dark and handsome actor/director/activist has had his essence captured in a tasteful portrait commissioned by the Jelly Belly Company. The artist, Roger Rocha, used 10,000 morsels to recreate Clooney in multi-colored yumminess. At the end of the month, the candy Clooney will be donated to a charity of George’s choosing. Does a new, up-and-coming webzine count as a charity? [People] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Gene Simmons Caught On Tape, Throat Cancer, And Athletic Performance

  • Clips of what appears to be Gene Simmons getting it on with Elsa, an Austrian model, are making the rounds online. We started to wonder if it shows him making use of that famous tongue, but then we realized we’d rather not know. He’s kind of old. And gross. [The Sun (U.K.)]
  • In case you don’t already know this, you can get STDs from oral sex. Not only that, but HPV can incubate in the back of your throat and it has been linked to a form of throat cancer. Gag! [U.S. News]
  • Some athletes and coaches claim that having sex can lead to poor performance on the field the next day, but they’re probably wrong. Muhammad Ali reportedly abstained from sex for weeks before a big fight to make himself meaner, however, sexuality activity actually increases testosterone and doesn’t affect aerobic power. Plus, if you’re a professional athlete you should be able to handle a little extra exercise. [Canada.com]

    An Open Letter To American Idol

    Dear Randy, Paula, and Simon,
    Seriously, how dumb are you guys to give up on Josiah Leming, a guy who actually writes his own (amazing) songs, sings Mika’s “Grace Kelly” as an audition song, has the adorable look that teens (and, um, women) will go crazy for, and has a voice that channels some of the most popular bands making money today? And you actually let through that kid with the hair-band highlights? Out. Of. Touch.
    Love,
    The Frisky

    Still Hot: Kathleen Turner

    Kathleen Turner, the sexy 50-something Golden Globe winning actress, is best known for her gravely voice. She has starred in Peggy Sue Got Married, War of the Roses, Romancing the Stone, and even lent her voice to femme fatale Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Now, the accomplished actress has turned both director and author. Her first New York production, the Pulitzer-prize winning Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley, opened on Valentine’s Day to rave reviews from the likes of The New York Times. And her sassy memoir, Send Yourself Roses, has just been released to equal praise. In it, she dishes the dirt on her co-stars — like Burt Reynolds, whom she calls “just nasty” — but she really throws the book at herself. She curses like a sailor and used to drink like one too. But she has beaten back the system, fought her way to sobriety, and now is smarter and stronger than she was even as a young, athletic starlet. As Elton John says, the “Bitch is Back” and we here at The Frisky predict she’ll have a bestseller to show for it too! [Amazon] Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Pink And Carey Hart Call It Quits

  • Is Avril Lavigne pregnant? Is that punk rock? [DListed]
  • In the new issue of Us Weekly, Nick Lachey says of his ex-wife Jessica Simpson, “I wish her nothing but happiness,” and, referencing her relationship with Tony Romo, “If she’s found that… good for her.” Divorce has never been so sweet! [Us Weekly]

    eHarmony: The Video Game

    Just looking at those lovey-dovey eHarmony commercials, where couples joke about their “connection”, would make any single gal feel like her love life is dialup while her relationship counterparts have DSL. But apparently the spinster club has more in common with joy stick jockeys than we ever knew. A new ad for Electronic Arts Burnout Paradise, a video game car derby, has spoofed the giggly eHarmony ads. The clever double-entendres and cheeky puns will have you laughing harder at these commercials than you did the last time you got “winked at.” [Ad Week]

    Sex On Campus: Rare and Juicy

    What happens when a bunch of hormone-ridden college co-eds party together week after week? Apparently nothing. Hot fantasies aside, the cold hard data is in. Kathleen Bogle, author of Hooking Up: Sex, Dating and Relationships on Campus, has filed her report. While the number of nuns may be dropping, the number of women who qualify is rising — 39% of women enter college as virgins, and 31% leave with a degree and their “purity” too. For male students, their annual number has dropped from 2.1 partners in 2001 to 1.6 in 2006 (but we’re sure they’re really missing the best .5 of a lady). It’s really a sad state of affairs, especially at the Ivy Leagues. While they were able to slip into Harvard, nearly half the undergrads claim they don’t have carnal knowledge. Aren’t the smarty-pants the ones we want to procreate? The good news is, thanks to DIY media (from ‘zines to the internet), students are documenting their sexual experiences in record numbers. So while the pickin’s may be slim, they are juicy!

    Romance On TV: Big Brother Plays Matchmaker

    Forget the Millionaire Matchmaker! Julie Chen and the rest of the people behind my favorite summertime guilty pleasure, Big Brother, are looking to play Cupid for the first Winter season of the hit reality TV show. For the ninth season, the cast is totally single and ready to mingle — or as Julie puts it, “looking for love”. After a week’s worth of episodes (the show airs a whopping three times a week on CBS, plus nightly on Big Brother: After Dark on Showtime), I really think the house guests are really only looking to hook-up and fight. The cast is paired up in teams of two based on their romantic compatibility, but that has already made for some trouble. Partners Adam and Sheila despise each other; a real couple outside the house, Jen and Ryan, were paired up with other partners that were apparently more compatible; and a couple that recently broke up in real life were reunited as partners inside the Big Brother house to neither of their pleasure. But there has been some “showmancing”, much to the producers’ relief. Via the live feeds available on CBS.com, Jen and Ryan have been overheard gettin’ down and dirty in the bathroom, while partners Nat and Matt (aww, cute!) indulged in a little midnight canoodling. We can’t wait to see what happens next! [CBS: Big Brother 9] Keep reading »
