Frisky Rant: Danielle Staub May Have A Point

I’ve had a couple of days to process the “unbeweavable” episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” that aired on Monday night. In case you missed it, it came complete with name calling, hair pulling, broken boots, dirty accusations, police reports, and of course, subsequent lawsuits. But believe it or not, I’m feeling mildly…

Frisky Rant: I’m On Team Vienna

Not that I was really on team anyone before, but I’ve watched the Jake and Vienna breakup special. Actually, I watched it twice, once alone and once with Aunt Mildred the body language expert, hoping to gain a new perspective. I always hated Vienna. When I watched her on “The Bachelor,” I thought she wa…

Frisky Rant: It’s Time To Boycott “The Bachelor”

The announcement that Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have split is the straw breaking this camel’s back. I think I’ve had just about enough of “The Bachelor.” I have known for a long time that the relationships born and bred in front of a camera are a shamfest (except for maybe Ryan and Trista) but…

Frisky Rant: I’m Concerned For “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”

It’s been all fun and games with the drama on the “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” — until now. While I was laughing at the drama between Danielle Staub and everyone else last season, I’m certainly not laughing anymore. We’ve gone from some amusing table throwing to unwarranted paranoia, possibly serious revenge plots, and…

Frisky Rant: The Mommy Wars Go Digital

Mommy bloggers are crazy. No, not because they blog about every mind-numbingly boring burp and giggle — because they do it despite the fact that their readers are just vicious to them. For example, The New York Daily News tells us about mommy blogger Shellie Ross, who lived every mother’s worst nightmare when she found…

Frisky Rant: I’m Pissed That Kate Gosselin Got Voted Off “DWTS”

Did Kate Gosselin really get the boot from “Dancing With The Stars” last night? Whine, whine, whimper. I know, I know—she’s genuinely one of the worst dancers the show has ever seen. I am aware that I’m probably going to hell for saying this but I want—no need—her to stay on the show. Why? Because…

Frisky Rant: Sex Addicted Isn’t Just The Way Guys Are

There’s always that one guy. You know, the one who undoes our progress as human beings. The man who claims we are powerless victims to our biological urges. Enter T. Byram Karasu, a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, who in a piece on The Daily Beast argues that Tiger Woods’ sexcapades were a completely…

Frisky Rant: Figure Skater Johnny Weir Was Robbed!

Have you seen “Be Good Johnny Weir,” the new Sundance reality show about the figure skating phenom who can do Lady Gaga and Victor Petrenko justice? Well, if your answer is no, you need more glam and ice bling in your life! Nobody brings it like Johnny, the booty-shaking bad boy ballerina with a heart…

Frisky Rant: “Put Yourself Out There!” Is Really Annoying Dating Advice

Last night I had dinner with my friend Cecilia*, and, as you might expect, our conversation turned to dating. We’re around the same age, and many of her friends are married and having kids. As is the plight of many a single woman with friends who have settled down, Cecilia has been getting plenty of…

Frisky Rant: Down With Plastic Surgery

I try to keep an open mind about plastic surgery, I really do. I try to tell myself that it’s just like dying your hair or wearing a pair of Spanx—a little tweak that can make you feel super slammin’. I try to tell myself that everyone has the right to look their best, and…

Frisky Rant: Recommending Fewer Pap Smears Is Just Plain Nuts

I’m sorry, but are our country’s medical agencies smoking something? Just a few days after new breast cancer screening guidelines recommended mammograms only for women 50 and older and declared self-breast exams moot, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is now telling women to delay getting their first pap smear until they are 21…

Frisky Rant: Family Members Should STFU About Weight Gain

I don’t know about you folks, but for me, a weekend with the rents is always fraught with tension. Is Mom going to pester me about brushing my hair? Is Dad going to ask me how much money I’m saving? Will they bristle if my boyfriend and I sleep in the same bed?

Frisky Rant: When Will People Realize Drunk Driving Kills?

We have this really annoying habit as humans of thinking we’re invincible or that the one tragic thing that could happen in a situation won’t happen to us. Nowhere else is this more evident than with the drunk driver. Rarely does the driver set out to kill — he/she only wants to ride the high…

Frisky Rant: So What If Little Girls Wear Bikinis!

Earlier this week, I extolled the virtues of donning a thong bikini on the beach. I received a great deal of support from readers, but one subject that came up in the comments surprised me: whether it’s appropriate for 3- to 5-year-old girls to wear bikinis. Those opposed think the bikinis are too sexy for…

Frisky Rant: Should Women Use Sex As A Power Tool In Relationships?

This past week on VH1’s “Tool Academy,” the dudes were taught humility by admitting their deepest fears about their relationships and prancing around in tutus. However, their girlfriends have been trying to put them in their place since the season began by withholding sex. Granted, none of those bros deserve a piece of…

Frisky Rant: Magnum Condoms Are Total B.S.

On the newest episode of “The Real World: Brooklyn” (the show started last week and has been relatively boring), one of the male housemates made a big show of having to use Magnum condoms. Oh really dude? Seriously, there is no bigger marketing scam than Magnums, except maybe New Coke, only New Coke failed, and…

Frisky Rant: I’m Fat, So?!

I’m fat. I have gigantic ta-tas and a fat ass(et). While I didn’t always see it as such (high school was rough), as an adult, having all those extra mouthfuls has certainly come in handy — just ask my boyfriends. But OK, I’ll admit it; being a large lady, I’ve worried about the possibility of…

Frisky Rant: The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Only Value Beauty

In the first few episodes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” we noticed that the women, especially Lisa Wu Hartwell, always greeted each other by addressing each others beauty. They say, “Hey beautiful!” or “You’re so gorgeous.” At first we thought this was a fluke, that they’re just not used to cameras following them and…

Frisky Rant: You’ve Jumped The Shark, “Gossip Girl”!

Snooze, the last few episodes of “Gossip Girl” have been boring me. Maybe I just hate Jenny’s mullet so much that it’s hard for me to want to watch this, but lately I just feel as if the show is selling itself short.

First of all, where is Nate? When in doubt…

Frisky Rant: I Hate “I Heart My Boyfriend” Items

I’m sure you all are familiar with the insane amount of “I Heart My Boyfriend” clothing and other items that are sold on the back pages of tabloid magazines. And I’m sure I’m not alone when I say, “I really hate those things!” My rant continues after the jump.
