Space, the final frontier, is getting a new voyager and some sperm that’s outta this world! Richard Garriott, the video game visionary behind Tabula Rasa, is going to be the sixth private citizen to be sent to outer space. How’d he get so lucky? Well, he’s started a program to collect, create, and carry digital DNA and snippets of human history as a time capsule to be stored at the International Space Station. The paranoid gamer is worried androids, the apocalypse, and natural disasters could make us all extinct. His fear has inspired him to create the project, called “Operation Immortality,” to ensure a future for humanity. So who’s genetic code is he cracking? So far, brilliant comedian and well-known narcissist, Stephen Colbert, has agreed to donate, but even the average Jane can offer up her stuff too! All you have to do is play the free trial of Tabula Rasa and your name could get selected at random to become a sample. But if DNA seems a bit too personal, you can simply send a message to the Universe by typing a note about the 21st Century here. Mr. Garriott will be collecting information until October when his shuttle launches. So, with a month to go, we’d like to recommend a few good peeps we think the future could use…

In her 90210 rise to stardom, Shannen Doherty had it all — fame, fortune, and the most glamorous bitch face on television. Over a decade later, we’re genuinely surprised Shannen isn’t still in the public eye or happily hitched to some billionaire with a pompadour. But after being a brat and leaving the show that made her a household name, she’s still magically managed to keep her career afloat (though on life support) with made-for-TV movies and shows like Charmed. And now that she’s signed on to the new 90210, Shannen is poised again for serious stardom. So how can she take her life to the next level now that she’s suddenly gone from D-list to C-list? We here at The Frisky have some ideas to put this bitch back on magazine covers!

This week, Barack Obama is expected to announce his running mate. Who will he choose? Many of the rumored contenders are men, but a few women, including Hillary Clinton, are rumored to have been considered. We here at the Frisky would love to see Obama pick a female as his VP.

According to Star magazine, Tom Cruise really, really, really didn’t want wife Katie Holmes going to New York for three months to perform on Broadway — so he sent her to Scientology’s base in Hemet, California (known as “Gold Base”) for boot camp instead. So not as fun, right? Check out what that entailed:
“It included various tests, confession sessions, tons of reading and physically challenging purification processes,” a Scientology insider reveals. “Tom insists that auditing and purification practices are incredibly beneficial to Scientologists at all levels.”
But we’re sure all is well in the Cruise household. And if anyone is going to prove that to the entire friggin’ world with more couch-jumping antics, it’s Cruise, who appears on Oprah today. Our DVRs are SET. Stay tuned! [Star] Keep reading »
The cast of Sex and the City were on Oprah yesterday. It was so funny. The audience looked like a Crayola box vomited all over them, there was much, much, much screeching, and the ladies kind of played up their characters, with the possible exception of Cynthia Nixon, who really does seem over-the-moon in love with that girlfriend of hers. The cast talked about those much discussed “dream sequences” that they hyped during the filming to throw people off about the plot, but seemed to allude that maybe they weren’t so dreamy after all. The highlight for me, however, was when Chris Noth came out, because honestly? Drool. Keep reading »
Strange things are going to be happening on Oprah. In an upcoming show, Cher is going to reveal that she had a relationship with Tom Cruise — when he was 23 and she was 39. The Daily Mail reported that Cher told Oprah, “I was crazy about him.” She said he was an awkward young man trying to adjust to life as an up-and-coming actor (Risky Business had just been released): “He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him.” Once a boob, always a boob, I guess.

Celebs like Oprah, Bono, Angelina Jolie, and even Jessica Simpson try to do good by backing certain causes, but according to a Harris Poll, 51 percent of Americans say celebrities make little to no difference to the issues they support. Younger people are more likely to believe famous people have a positive influence, as are Democrats. For me, it really depends who the celeb is and whether it seems as though they really care about the cause they’re touting. Remember when Paris Hilton said she wanted to “use [her] fame in a good way”? Well, now she’s supposedly hosting a dog-grooming show in the U.K. [Reuters, Washington Post, AHN] Keep reading »
A few weeks ago we wrote about Thomas Bettie, the Female-to-Male transgender man who’s currently six months pregnant. Yesterday, as the news of Thomas’ pregnancy spread like wildfire through the media (initially his story was reported in The Advocate, which everyone seems to be forgetting in lieu of the fact that People has jumped on it), he appeared on Oprah with his wife Nancy. It was kind of an awkward interview, honestly, because the audience had no warning and appeared flabbergasted the whole time, while Thomas and Nancy are clearly not media whores — they just want to get their story out into the public so they can go on with their lives, without scrutiny. I really do think this story is wonderful and phenomenal and give so much credit to Thomas and Nancy for being brave and telling their remarkable story. Oh, and as a side note, I totally think Thomas makes for a pretty good-lookin’ dude, but he was really hot as a woman too. Clip above. Keep reading »
