“The truth was, I made the wrong decision to wear a very tight dress, and had something rather like a Victorian swoon. … We had been there for seven hours, and I started feeling dizzy. I tried to get some air, but I felt really faint. I wanted to leave in our limo, but Percy decided to call an ambulance. We went to the hospital, and they did all the tests before the doctors told me I was absolutely fine and released me.”
—Joan Collins shares a cautionary tale with anyone considering a corseted dress. Apparently, her tight dress made her ill at an Oscars viewing party. We say stick with dresses that don’t bruise your ribs. Also, shoulder pads! [PopEater] Keep reading »
“I found out when everybody else did. My reaction was, ‘Of course I’m pregnant. Why wouldn’t I be pregnant during this time?’ … It was exciting because this was the ultimate project. What we tried to do was be super diverse in the choices — from the Vivienne Westwood, which was a corseted ball gown, to a super futuristic modern Armani and the Givenchy couture, which was a little more traditional and medieval. We jumped across the board … Annie is a true movie star in every sense of the word without actually trying. She just is. She’s beyond talented and wears clothes so beautifully.”
What makes famous women take off their underwear? Jay Leno. In a sketch on last night’s show, Ross Matthew asked celebs at the Oscars to contribute something to Jay’s gift bag. Jamie Foxx relinquished his sunglasses; Hayden Panettiere kissed a napkin as a contribution; Tori Spelling talked incessantly about her crotchless Spanx—which, way too much information. And then Heidi Klum made the entire video, offering, “You want my underwear?” She then shimmyed them off underneath her sparkly dress. A woman of her word. Clip above. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Madonna‘s get-up at the Vanity Fair Oscars party sort of reminds me of the sexy witch costume Kelly Taylor wore to that Halloween party on “Beverly Hills, 90210” where the cowboy tried to lock her in the bedroom to date rape her. Lourdes reaction to her mom’s ensemble choice? “Mum, do you have to?!” This is apparently what she said when Madonna turned around, posing so the photographers could see her butt cheeks.

Watching Melissa Leo drop the f-bomb during her Oscar acceptance speech made me feel a little bit better about my own f-bomb mishap. Sometimes it just happens at the most inappropriate moments. For me, it was back in my days as a high school teacher. It was 8th grade visitors night and parents and potential students were coming through my classroom to watch my students rehearse for an upcoming school play. One of my actresses fell on the stage and her skirt flipped up so all of our visitors saw her underwear. That’s when I started to laugh uncontrollably. I know it’s wrong, but I just couldn’t stop. I laughed so hard that I got a gushing nosebleed. Don’t think this story can get any worse? You’re wrong. Keep reading »
Last night’s Oscars ended with a performance by the kids of PS 22 chorus, who we here at The Frisky absolutely adore. What makes this chorus so unique is their unusual song choices. So I don’t know about the selection “Over the Rainbow,” which sounded kind of pre-recorded and was, well, meh. As the credits rolled, I wished they’d been given a medley of Oscar-winning songs. Or, wait, maybe they could have sung this year’s nominated songs, with the people who created them, before the award was given? Hey, they would have added some dimension to Gwyneth Paltrow‘s performance.
Because we love them, here are some of our favorite PS 22 chorus clips. Keep reading »
