Amy Poehler Tells An Adorable Story Involving Her Son, His Lisp & Spicy Salsa

The outright coolest mom/lady/feminist/human in Hollywood — nay, on Earth — is Amy Poehler. HANDS. DOWN. The woman is as flawless as they come. There are no improvements to be made upon the Amy model. We were devastated and disoriented when she and ex-husband Will Arnett parted ways, but once we got back on our…

Duh, Amy Poehler Is A Feminist

“It’s always just been in my nature—it’s just kind of my everyday. Sometimes I access it in a conscious way, but it wasn’t always the headline of stuff that I was doing. We just had Gloria Steinem do ASSSSCAT, which was so great. Kathleen Hanna came, and I’m just a huge Kathleen Hanna fan. She,…

Style Inspiration: Leslie Knope’s Anchor Obsession

Yesterday I spent a few hours parked on my couch drinking wine and binge-watching “Parks & Rec.” It was glorious. I couldn’t help but notice, over the course of five or six episodes, that Leslie Knope displays a particular fondness for anchor prints, wearing both this Equipment blouse (which is sold out, sadly) and this Madewell anchor sweater

Amy Poehler’s awesome “Ask Amy” advice series takes a more somber turn in this week’s episode, in which she addresses how we can better cope with all the violent images we’ve seen this week.

Vote For Your Favorite Rad & Inspiring Woman!

It should come as no surprise that for all the obsessing we do about Ryan Gosling, baby pandas, Grumpy Cat, Karl Lagerfeld, Chavril and the endless array of Be My Boyfriend candidates, The Frisky is most inspired by the work of the many rad women we look up to. There are so many pop culture…

Amy Poehler Is Dating Nick Kroll And We Approve

New couple alert! Amy Poehler is dating comedian Nick Kroll of Comedy Central’s “The Kroll Show.” I refuse to believe this is true. It means Amy and Will Arnett are really over. [Page Six]

Abel Arnett Interrupts Amy Poehler’s Broadcast For Very Important Adorable Announcement

Amy Poehler’s “Ask Amy” series, where she offers advice to young women, is great and all. But can we all agree they’d be so much better with her adorable ginger son Abel Arnett divebombing in to say hello at the end? [Crushable]…

Watch Allison Brie Make Sexy Wood With Nick Offerman & Adam Scott (NSFW)

Look, I can’t really explain what’s going on here, except that you will see a lot of fake pubic hair, and Nick Offerman’s buttocks. Allison Brie says “pussy” a bunch, too. This is supposed to be a promotional trailer for a movie called “Somebody Up There Likes Me.” But this is not safe for work…

Tina Fey To Photographer: “Go F**k Yourself”

Justin Bieber isn’t the only celebrity who just lost it on a paparazzo: Tina Fey just told a photographer to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Gasp! Tina! We didn’t know you knew that language! Some obnoxious paparazzo was following Fey on the street in New York City and asked her, again, about Taylor Swift&#8217…

Taylor Swift, Amy Poehler, & Tina Fey Prompt Dumb Conversation About Feminism

Once upon a time at the Golden Globes, hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a little joke at Taylor Swift’s expense. It wasn’t even an especially mean joke, really, but it still poked fun at Swift’s reputation for getting around. “You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” they

Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler star on “Parks & Recreation” together and they’re also friends in real life. This past weekend, the gals went out with Rashida’s sisters and mom to celebrate her birthday, and this amazing picture was the result. “Ain’t nobody fresher than my m-f’in clique.” So true.

Leslie Knope’s Wedding Dress Was Freakin’ Perfect

Did you guys catch “Parks and Recreation” last night? SPOILER ALERT (that was already ruined by the headline, sorry): Leslie and Ben got married! In true Leslie fashion, the wedding came together at the last minute in a whirlwind of excitement and expertly delegated tasks. Leslie asked her BFF Ann to make her a dre…

Amy Poehler Has Some Wise Words On Saying “I’m Sorry”

Amy Poehler may be one of the funniest women ever — not to mention mom to my favorite big serious baby, Abel Arnett — but she also strikes me as one of the more sincere celebs in Hollywood. One of my favorite things about her Ask Amy video advice series is how genuine and thoughtful it is.

Amy Poehler Is Writing The Greatest Book In The World

Suck it, Tina Fey! Feck off, Lena Dunham! Amy Poehler is here to write the greatest book in all the land. HarperCollins is publishing a memoirish “illustrated, non-linear diary” promising “true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons.” Uh, hello?

The Best Moments From The 2013 Golden Globes In GIFs And Videos

Last night’s Golden Globe Awards were, hands down, the funniest the show has ever been. I’m serious. I realize that’s a big statement to make, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought it and, frankly, were even a bit under used. And I never say that about award show hosts. But the show overall wa…

Vote Poehler/Fey In 2016!

Another election is four years away? Blerg. At least we’ve got plenty of time to convince Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to make the Poehler/Fey ticket actually happen. (Although, would it be great if they launched their campaign while hosting Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards?) Those bitches would get stuff done and wear sweatshirts and sensible…

Play The Frisky’s Golden Globes Drinking Game This Sunday!

Awards shows are a dime a dozen, but we like the Golden Globes because all the nominees are drinking and eating while the show goes on, and are generally sloshed by the time they get on stage. That, plus Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting this year’s awards, which means it’s going to be…
