Last week, I found out that Lauren Graham and Connie Britton used to live together and I was like, “WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! Two of my favorite TV moms used to be roomies?!” The story only gets better though. Lauren told Andy Cohen that the two didn’t pay rent and were technically squatters. “We lived in an empty house that we weren’t supposed to be living in. We had no furniture and all we ate were Rice Krispies Treats.” Amazing, right? I went searching for other unexpected celeb roommates and found 6 more that might surprise you. Which rock star shared a room with David Lynch in Boston? Which former child star was brave enough to shack up with Lindsay Lohan? Read on to find out…
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 heavyweights and high-powered newsmakers who show us how its done and inspire us with their achievements every day. Naturally, of course, we each have our favorites. With that in mind, each Frisky staff member was tasked with choosing and submitting their favorite rad and inspiring woman — okay, a few of us got to pick two — for nomination, along with a photo of herself and a blurb about why they chose the woman they did.
And now we want you to vote for your favorite of the 10 women we’ve chosen.
The poll will remain open for two weeks — until April 22 — and, at that time, the woman with the most votes will become, effectively, our Rad & Inspiring Woman of the Year.
So what do you say? Will you tell us who you love, too? Vote now! Keep reading »
“Just drawing on my own experience, I never — I never — personally reference myself as old. I don’t think of myself as old, but I certainly would not say that to a man. I might have a conversation with some girlfriends — what are we doing about the lines around our eyes — but to a man? There are certain things — it would just be demystifying and disempowering.”
–”Nashville” star Connie Britton reveals her hesitations to discuss the aging process in a fascinating New York Times magazine profile that includes a number of major bombshells (example: she was set to play Dorothy in “Jerry Maguire” until Renee Zellweger nabbed the role at the last minute), and some classic Connie-isms (“My life started being awesome five years ago”). Apparently Britton has been extremely cautious about the way her “Nashville” character deals with aging, and has purposefully skipped lines and altered scenes that focused too much on the “aging country star” angle.

“I didn’t really fully comprehend the level of guilt involved [with being a mom]. I like to pride myself on not being a person who really functions at a level of guilt, and yet, man, I never knew I could feel so guilty when I work 16 hours and I really don’t get to spend enough time with my son. It’s awful.”
–”Nashville” star Connie Britton tells People magazine about the newfound capacity for guilt she’s discovered as a mom to her adorable 2-year-old son Yoby, whom she calls “the most incredible kid.” Despite the struggles, Britton says, “I wouldn’t have it any other way,” and in fact she would love to add to her family: “I would love more kids. Why not? Bring it on.” God, can you imagine having Tami Taylor for your mom? Luckiest kids ever. Connie, just FYI, I’m totally available for adoption. [People]
Beautiful goddess/actress Connie Britton is absolutely killing it in this slinky red gown, and causing me to experience a tidal wave of conflicting and confusing feelings, such as, “Can I please make out with you?” and “After we make out, will you sit me down and give me motherly advice?” and “Could I just have one small lock of your hair to wear in a vial around my neck for the rest of my life?” Uuuungghh I just love her so much it hurts!
