Hitched 2.0: 7 Guests You Encounter At Every Wedding

Hitched 2.0: 7 Guests You Encounter At Every Wedding

We still have seven months until our wedding, but I can’t help but wonder about our guests: how they’ll act, what their reactions will be, how they’ll get along. I’ve been to enough weddings to know that there are bound to be certain people who emerge in some pretty standard guest roles, especially when you have representatives from all different aspects of your life in one room. Rather than let ourselves be caught off-guard, my fiancé and I are mentally preparing ourselves for the following people to, um, grace us with their presences. Keep reading »

To Camille And Evin Cosby: I Know From Experience That A Good Husband And Father Can Also Be A Rapist

Camille and Evin Cosby want you to know that Bill Cosby is a good husband and father, every bit the man you saw on TV.

Lachele Covington, Andrea Constand, Shawn Brown, Tamara Green, Beth Ferrier, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis, Linda Joy Traitz, Janice Dickinson, Therese Serignese, Carla Ferrigno, Louisa Moritz, Renita Chaney Hill, Michelle Hurd, Angela Leslie, Kristina Ruehli, Victoria Valentino, Joyce Emmons, Jewel Allison, Donna Motsinger, Judy Huth, Helen Hayes, Chelan, P.J. Masten, and Beverly Johnson want you to know that Bill Cosby is a serial rapist.

I’ve opted not to write about it, because what is there to say? Cosby’s accusers are doing a better job of articulating their experiences than I could. But this nonsense from Cosby’s family about him being “the FATHER you thought you knew,” in Evin’s words, or “the man you thought you knew,” in Camille’s, is too much to ignore. Keep reading »

Frisky Eats: 9 Ways To Cook With Parsnips

I really, really enjoy cooking and am pretty much the anti-thesis of a picky eater. When I look at a menu, everything looks and sounds delicious. That said, when I go into a grocery store or peruse the local farmer’s market, I find myself strangely intimidated by certain vegetables. It took me awhile to finally get the courage to cook Brussels sprouts and kale, for example, but now I am obsessssssed with them both. So, it was with that same courage that I decide to cook parsnips as part of my Thanksgiving feast and, true to form, I fell in love. I’ve already roasted them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper — so good! — but I’m eager to use parsnips in a bunch of other ways. Here are nine recipes I’m jonesing to try…

The Soapbox: Railing Against AA Does A Disservice To Those Trying To Get Sober

The Soapbox: Railing Against AA Does A Disservice To Those Trying To Get Sober

This post was originally published on After Party Chat and republished with permission.

We’ve all got at least one Facebook friend who just can’t stand Alcoholics Anonymous and needs to let the world know it every chance that they get. I usually politely ignore them. But the latest anti-AA screed to show up in my newsfeed was too irritating to ignore.

First off, let me start by saying that I’m not a member of AA, lest my opinion be dismissed as coming from a member of “the AA cult.” Have I been to meetings? Yes. Tons of them. Do I attend meetings today? No, I don’t. At one point I attended regularly, and it helped me. At a certain point,  it no longer helped me and so I stopped. Simple as that. Keep reading »

Make It Stop: “My Best Friend Won’t STFU About Her New Boyfriend”

Make It Stop: "My Best Friend Won't STFU About Her New Boyfriend"

My best friend is in a new relationship. I’m really happy for her, but it seems like she ONLY wants to gab about this new fella, who I’ll call Louis. We talk about Louis for—I’m not kidding—hours on end. She doesn’t even ask about how my day’s going, she just talks endlessly about this guy: basically what she loves about him (his wicked sense of humor and kickass bedroom skills) and what she’s hesitant about (his exorbitant student loans, his ex-girlfriend who he swears is “crazy”). Her thoughts on this guy are a faucet that I can’t turn off. These conversations are taking up a lot of my time, which is a problem because between work and school, my free time is at a premium. Louis is sexy! Louis is great! Louis wants to name their (hypothetical children) Clementine and Zachary! That’s all fantastic; but I’d rather be catching up on “Homeland” episodes than hearing about the ins and outs of her new relationship for the millionth time. Please, make it stop!

I understand the rush of finding a new love. You want to scream it from the rooftops: “I found someone who doesn’t suck! Life is good! Now I can one of those people who write #blessed at the end of status updates unironically!” Keep reading »

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To “Be My Boyfriend,” And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To "Be My Boyfriend," And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

I’m already planning the rom-com about this meet-cute. I would like Kate Hudson to play me (or, per a coworker’s suggestion, Jennifer Lawrence in a blonde wig), and Chris Pratt to play Rich. To remind you, Rich is the comedian who almost flawlessly impersonates characters from 25 of the most beloved Christmas movies.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the low down. Earlier this week, I penned a “Be My Boyfriend” letter to Rich here on The Frisky. I was floored by how accurate his impressions were in his “25 Days of Christmas Movie Impressions” video, and wanted to tip my hat to him. I told him about how I wanted to find him under my Christmas tree this year and that I would write to Santa to please deliver him. (Yes, that is how I tip my hat. Don’t hate.) Keep reading »
