Frisky Q&A: DeAnna Pappas On Finding Love, For Real This Time

DeAnna Pappas has had a long, strange ride on "The Bachelor." First, she fell for Brad Womack, only for him to walk away without proposing to either woman at his final rose ceremony.

Frisky Q&A: Adrianne Curry On Her Extremely Surreal Life

I like to imagine Adrianne Curry going to a psychic in 2002, the year before she auditioned for "America's Next Top Model." I can almost see this psychic peering into her crystal ball and telling Adrianne, who was 20 years old and addicted to heroin at the time, "You are going to win a major…

Frisky Q&A: Robyn Tells Us What It’s Like To Be A Fembot

Robyn has been called everything from the "queen of icy hotness" to the "Europop antidote to Lady Gaga." I just call her awesome. In 2010, Robyn toured up a storm and released three mini albums: Body Talk Pt. 1, Body Talk Pt. 2, and finally Body Talk on Cherrytree/Interscope and Konichiwa Records, the label she…

Frisky Q&A: Zuzanna Szadkowski, AKA Dorota From “Gossip Girl”

A year ago at a party, I spotted a stunning woman in a tight-fitting red dress who seemed eerily familiar. I stood by the punch bowl for at least five minutes trying to place her. And then it hit me. "Wait, isn't that Dorota from 'Gossip Girl'? Only in a cocktail dress rather than a…

Frisky Q&A: Nelly Furtado Dishes On Her New Album And Whom She’d Like To Collaborate With Next

She's been a bird who wants to fly away. She's been a promiscuous girl who eats men. She's even been a Spanish-speaking songstress, waving her hands in the air. It's hard to believe it, but it's been 10 years since Nelly Furtado released Whoa, Nelly!, and to celebrate the anniversary, she dropped The Best Of

Judge Lynn Toler has practiced law for more than two decades, but her legal career has led her down a path few of her peers have traveled.

Frisky Q&A: Sally Hawkins Of “Made In Dagenham”

Beating Meryl Streep for a 2009 Best Actress Golden Globe is no small feat. After watching actress Sally Hawkins in her latest film, "Made In Dagenham," I now fully understand her talent. In the movie, which is based on a true story, Sally plays a working-class woman in 1968 Britain who sews car seat upholstery…

Frisky Q&A: Brittany Snow On The “Love Is Louder” Campaign

Brittany Snow is one of those celebs who I've enjoyed onscreen — in the "Hairspray" remake, "Prom Night," a singular episode of "Gossip Girl" during a Lily Van Der Woodsen flashback — but didn't think much about. But it turns out, she's actually a really cool person with a big heart. Brittany works closely with…

Frisky Q&A: Matchmaker Amy Laurent On Starting Her Biz And Helping Folks Find Love

For most of us, “Millionaire Matchmaker” is a guilty indulgence. But for professional matchmaker Amy Laurent, it's a real-life, full-time job. Since setting up her own matchmaking agency six years ago, called Amy Laurent International, the bubbly 33-year-old has established five offices across the country where male clients dish the big bucks ($10,000 to be…

Frisky Q & A: The Like Talk About Their New Album And Why Boy Bands Smell

It’s hard not to like The Like. They’re kind of like (ha!) a ‘60s girl group plopped down in the present—their songs are upbeat and harmony-drenched, no matter what the topic, and their style feels ripped straight off The Ronettes backs. Oh, but these gals actually play their own instruments. The Like formed in 2001,…

Frisky Q&A: Norwegian Pop Star Annie On Her Tunes, Clothes, And Guys

Norwegian singer/songwriter/DJ Annie is the kind of woman who looks like an off-duty model, but also has a huge record collection and likes wearing a sweater with a penis print on it to business meetings. In other words—she's just cool. So it's not too surprising that her new album, Don't Stop is supremely addictive. But…
