Shelter Success Stories Make For Cute Stamps

We’re all about adopting animals here at The Frisky, and many staffers have given homes to strays or shelter dogs and cats. So, we’re pretty pleased about the initiative the U.S. Postal Service is launching later this month. The USPS will offer a set of stamps featuring adopted pets photographer Sally Anderson-Bruce found in her Connecticut hometown (you can read the animals stories online; Peaches the cat, for example, was born under a porch). In conjunction with the Stamps to the Rescue campaign, the USPS, along with Ellen DeGeneres and Halo: Purely for Pets (of which Ellen is a partial owner) will donate a million meals to animal shelters across the country. Even if you can’t adopt a pet yourself, by putting one of these lovable faces on the envelope you send your rent check in, you might persuade someone else — your landlord, perhaps? — to visit the local shelter.

Out Magazine Lists The Most Influential Gay Men And Women Of The Year

Out Magazine‘s “Power 50” is a list of the most powerful gay peeps in the country. It just dropped, and we’re pretty excited about it. The mag ranks people based on their political clout, pop culture value, wealth and, of course, their personal life. Numero uno on the list was David Geffen, a record exec, producer and all around big shot. He was followed by Anderson Cooper, which surprised me quite a bit because, last time I checked, he’s tight-lipped on the subject on his sexuality. I’m definitely not down with assuming, and I’m pretty sure the mag’s readers were none too pleased, either. But, hey, let’s not give all our attention to the dudes. After the jump, look at the big shot lesbians. Keep reading »

“Family Feud” Contestant Gives Confusing Answer About Ellen DeGeneres


I’m not really sure what one particular contestant meant by his answer in the category “Things everyone knows about Ellen DeGeneres,” on a recent “Family Feud” episode, but if Ellen’s reaction means anything, his answer should have been: “She’s so endearing.” Clip above. [via NYMag.com and YouTube]

Ellen DeGeneres Gives Gay Teen $30,000 Scholarship After Prom Debacle

I frickin’ love Ellen DeGeneres. I love her dancing and back in the day, I even loved her Hush Puppies. She’s done huge things for the LGBT community since coming out in 1997 in that fateful episode of “Ellen,” but even she is impressed by 18-year-old Constance McMillen’s gumption. The high school senior is standing up for herself after her Mississippi school canceled senior prom upon hearing that she planned to wear a tux and bring a female date. Ellen offered to throw her a prom, but Constance is holding out for what’s right. Ellen said, “I just admire you so much, because when I was your age I never would have had the strength to do what you’re doing. And you’re clearly a very shy girl, so just being yourself and doing what’s right, you’re going to make a lot of change. You really will.” And thus Ellen has offered Constance a summer internship and a $30,000 scholarship. Which is sooo much better than prom. She won’t even have to buy a corsage. [E!

Would Ali Consider Being The Next “Bachelorette”?


On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” Ali Fedotowsky, who tearfully left the show last week because she was going to get fired from her job at Facebook if she didn’t go back to work, called to tell Jake Pavelka she made a mistake. However, in the 10 seconds (OK, few weeks, probably) that has passed since she bid him adieu, Jake had “fallen in love” with the three remaining women and didn’t think it was a “good idea” to let Ali come back for a second shot. Ali shed even more tears as she declared that leaving was the biggest mistake she’d ever made, and, I believe, her “performance” likely earned her the title of the next “Bachelorette.” While nothing is confirmed, Ali paid a visit to “The Ellen Show” and hinted she might be interested.
