Poll: Are Celebs Helping Their Causes?

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 »

Pregnant, Transgender Man Appears On Oprah

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 »

The Daily Squeeze: Beautiful Brides, Premature Babies, And Larry King

  • You might think that Sienna Miller and Rhys Ifans make a strange couple, but among 82 newlywed couples studied by the University of Tennessee, happiness belonged to those in which the bride, not the groom, was good looking. [CBS News]
  • Being born prematurely has lasting effects. Not only are you more likely to give birth to a preemie, but you’re actually less likely to have a baby at all. That, and people born prematurely had slightly lower educational attainment. [Reuters]
  • Larry King was voted the least sexy talk show host in an AOL poll, while Kelly Ripa was named the sexiest. And Ellen DeGeneres beat out Oprah as readers’ favorite daytime TV host, probably because she’s so sensitive. [Reuters]

    Drew Barrymore Brings Big Check, New Boyfriend To Oprah

    Yesterday Drew Barrymore appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show to announce that she was donating $1 million dollars of her own money to the United Nations’ World Food Program, which is aiming to feed 10 million more children in Africa by Thanksgiving Day. While she was there, she also dished about her new boyfriend, Justin “I’m A Mac” Long, who was in the audience. She said, “This relationship is great. It’s healthy, it’s productive, and it’s supportive. It’s full of humor and a lot of fun.” He said Drew is more than a pretty face, adding, “She’s the most compassionate person I’ve ever met.” Dang, they’re cute. [Oprah.com and WFP] Keep reading »

    Tyra Banks: Crazy Like A Fox

    Saying Tyra Banks is crazy is just redundant. After all those seasons of the Surreal Life, everyone must know by now that it takes a well-crafted level of “look at me” to make it in the biz. And in true celeb form, Tyra, the diva of drama queens, who screams all her lines like she’s getting slashed in a B horror movie, wants to be the gravitational pull of public attention. Whether she’s spooning Sherri Shepard on The View or showing off her model moves, she’s always doing something you have to watch like you’re rubbernecking a highway accident. Unfortunately, in the media lately, she’s been made out to be a more of a car wreck than she deserves. She’s just a TV personality people! So we here at the Frisky just want to stand by our loud and proud lady. We respect a woman, let alone a model, with a burgeoning career in her 30’s. And we’re super psyched about her new CW reality TV show which will be based on one of our fav movies The Devil Wears Prada. So go on with your so bad it’s good self Ty Ty, we’ll be watching you compete in America’s Next Top Oprah! Keep reading »

    Can Oprah Stop Male Genital Odors?

    Every once and a while a new product comes on to the market and you instantly think to yourself, “Damn. What took them so long?” In this case, that product is NodorO and what took so long is they needed to mention Oprah’s name in order to call attention to male genital odor (MGO). The company behind NodorO, a cream which helps neutralize penis funk, has challenged the daytime talk show host to bring attention to MGO in hopes of normalizing what they see as a common problem that many men feel embarrassed about. Umm, unless Stedman or Gayle have issues below the belt, we don’t know why O should give a funk. [PRWeb and NodorO] Keep reading »

    Was Oprah Wrong About Promiscuous Teens?

    When Oprah talked about oral sex on her show, people were aghast at how slutty today’s teens had become. But author Tim Harford would probably disagree. In The Logic of Life, his follow-up to The Undercover Economist, Harford looks at various hidden human behaviors. One of his findings is that teens aren’t more promiscuous now than before, they’ve just shifted from intercourse to oral sex. Read it and weep, O! [Bloomberg] Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Lindsay Lohan Adds Adrian Grenier To Her Entourage

  • Ugh. Lindsay Lohan is apparently soiling the bed of hot Entourage actor Adrian Grenier who we have been crushing on since the awesome teen flick Drive Me Crazy. Will Lohan leave no stone unturned? [Radar Online]
  • In celebrity baby news, Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera are both due to pop any second now, while Halle Berry’s baby is due in March. Also, rumor mongers are saying that Avril Lavigne is the latest youngster to get pregnant, though her rep denies it. Believe what you like! [Just Jared]
  • The National Enquirer is reporting that Oprah leaves nothing to her partner Stedman in her will, choosing to give most of her $2 billion fortune to charity and her children. Children? Oh yeah, it seems O wants to adopt three girls and raise them solo. We’re not surprised about Stedman, but what about Gayle? [DListed]

    Spanx You Very Much!

    Oprah has admitted that she’s started to go panty-less. If that made you squirm, shake it off into a pair of her unseen favorite things: the new age girdles known as Spanx. The various styles of body wear, from footless tights to high-waisted undies, are designed to smooth cellulite, cinch waists, shape curves, and tighten your loose ends. The wonder for your down-unders was created by Atlanta entrepreneur Sarah Blakely and her brand has become an asset to women across America who want to look like they go to the gym. Even skinny minis like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, and Jessica Alba swear by Spanx. However, be warned, while they may smooth you, you have to be smooth yourself. The real trick here is getting the granny panties off before you get manhandled. [Spanx] Keep reading »

    Vajayjay Nation: What’d You Call It, Oprah?

    Have you wondered if an entire nation of intelligent women would jump off a bridge if Oprah said it was the thing to do? We have. We’ve also wondered whether said women would start calling their vaginas by a cutesy nickname, like, say vajayjay, if Oprah announced that was what she called her snatch. Well according to the New York Times, they have. Apparently the pet name for Oprah’s vagina (Sidebar: Isn’t it funny, a little, to think that Oprah has a vagina? And Dr. Phil has a penis! Weird.) stems from an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in which a character on the show orders someone to “stop lookin’ at my vajayjay.” Oprah loved that so much that she hasn’t stopped saying it on her show since, and neither has every single woman we’ve met, recently. Of course, the minute those old fogies at the Times declare something cool and now and fierce, it’s actually tired and and dead and buried. So what should the trendy new pet name for your lady flower be? Sound off in the comments. For the record, we’re kinda feelin’ “coozie.” [NY Times] Keep reading »
