Do blondes really have more fun? In the case of Daenarys “Khaleesi” Targaryen, “Game of Thrones”‘ Mother of Dragons, it’s tough to say. What we do know, though, is that Emilia Clarke, who plays Khaleesi, is currently appearing on Broadway as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which necessitated that she wear her hair in its natural dark brown glory. Thankfully, the stark white Khaleesi look is actually a wig, so Clarke’s hair is relatively undamaged. Not so for many of the other celebs on this list, who’ve transformed themselves from brunette to bottled white blondes with the help of a healthy heaping of bleach. Take a look, and tell us whether you like the white blonde look, or prefer their darker tresses.
There’s a lot of beautiful weirdos out there. And a lot of them sell crap on Etsy. Specifically, we’re talking about the strange amalgam of celebrity-oriented craftery that’s available on Etsy. Need an R. Kelly prayer candle? Yeah, we’ve got one. A wine glass etched with the glorious visage of Julia Roberts? Of course you do. All that and more can be found by wading through the thick muck of Etsy sellers.
Over the weekend, Rachel McAdams was caught by paps sporting a ridiculously well-developed baby bump. No, she’s not really preggers (that we know of), but she’s playing a preggo lady for her new movie, “About Time.” And boy does she look uncomfy.
McAdams is hardly the first actress to sport a fake pregnancy for a movie. After the jump, some of the best and worst fake movie bumps.
When I first learned about Katie Holmes divorcing Tom Cruise, I wasn’t particularly upset or curious about what I was going to eventually learn about Scientology should Katie ever talk. Instead, the only thought on my mind was what the Tumblr “Suri’s Burn Book” would have to say about the news. As you can see from above, I was not disappointed. But the best part of Suri’s Burn Book? No celebrity children are off limits. See a few of our favorite posts from the blog after the jump, and check out all 47 pages of hilarity at the link. [Suri's Burn Book].

Let’s get one thing straight: I am not a fan of Katherine Heigl movies and I probably won’t see her new film “One for the Money” unless I’m forced. But that doesn’t mean I don’t think she’s gotten a raw deal in the media. A new article from New York magazine asks, “Is It Over for Katherine Heigl?” and examines the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star’s relative bankability compared to her position a few years ago. What it finds is that Katherine Heigl is guilty of a couple of major things, among them:
- Being demanding and high strung — incurring the nickname “Hurricane Heigl.”
- Having opinions about the projects she does.
But the real core of Heigl’s problem — and why she’s the object of such grating analysis, is that she’s a woman — a woman who’s done and said some unlikeable things. Call it the “America’s Sweetheart” problem, something Heigl seems acutely aware of. “I’ve never really been America’s sweetheart, but for a minute I think that’s what they wanted me to be,” she told Elle this past December. And I had ‘em for a second thinking maybe I was. And then I opened my mouth and it was clear I wasn’t.”
And none of these things would really matter if she was a man. Keep reading »
As we look forward to 2012, let us look back — back upon the ladies who faltered, ever-so-slightly, in the sartorial department with bad outfits, poor fabric choices and strange, rhombus-like headwear. Check out our list of (just some of) the worst looks of 2011. (And after the jump, the best red carpet looks of the year!) Keep reading »
Before I worked at The Frisky, I did several years’ time in the weird — very weird — world of gossip magazines and tabloid websites. I know, I know, hard to believe there was life before The Frisky! But! I worked for several strange and sundry places (Us Weekly, OK! and TMZ among them) that make their money selling the American public on the latest news on the Kardashians, Hiltons and Lohans — or whomever else might happen to capture the public imagination at the moment. And because I spent some time in that world, I picked up a few things about how celebrity gets bought and sold and perpetuated. And in the spirit of the holidays, and because sharing is caring, I’m going to tell you, really, how the celebrity industrial complex manufactures your daily dose of craptacular celeb news, paparazzi shots and insider scoops.

While October is devoted to raising awareness for breast cancer, November is all about the gentlemen. During the month of November, or “Movember,” as the Movember Foundation likes to call it, men around the world will grow the kind of facial hair many of us see as gross, cheesy, and porn star-esque for a good cause. (“Mo” is slang for mustache in Australia, where Movember started, originally with the sole goal of bringing back the mustache.) Their aim is to raise awareness about prostate cancer and other cancers that specifically affect men. We’ve assembled a wide array of some of our favorite celeb ‘staches for your mouth-tickling enjoyment. Click through for the very best.
