Ask A Yoga Teacher: 6 “What If” Questions From A Yoga Newbie

The last time I did yoga was more than a decade ago, when a couple friends and I took a weekly class at the gym for a few months. Even then, I was kind of a slacker who lurked in the back of class muttering obscenities about downward dog (not sure if it’s big boobs

Frisky Q&A: Sarah Erdreich On Her Book Generation Roe

Forty years after the landmark decision, Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion, a woman’s right to make her own reproductive decisions is still a hotbed of discussion in state legislatures and a target of lawmakers.  Outside of these state capitals, talking about abortion is still largely taboo.

Sarah Erdreich is trying to open up a…

Stacy London Stole My Sweater And Other Tales From “What Not To Wear”

After Tuesday night’s “What Not to Wear” episode, featuring yours truly and an incredible cast of friends of family, I’ve gotten a few questions thrown my way. People have wondered what became of the infamous tiger sweater, lovingly named Raoul. Well, first, Stacy had her way with him. Yes, I did give it up. And…

Frisky Q&A: Clinton Kelly Of “What Not To Wear” Is Judging You

“What Not To Wear” is my go-to channel-surfing show — and if it’s a weekend marathon, I will binge on six straight episodes like Lady Gaga at a lobster hat sale. What’s not to like? The women (and occasionally men) nominated by their loved ones for “What Not To Wear” are all-too-relatable with their style…

Frisky Q&A: “Abusers” Co-Creator Tami Outterbridge

Last week we learned about a potential new show that made our jaws drop: “Abusers,” a reality TV show about domestic abusers and their victims. There were few details about the proposed show beyond a press release online and few details about the show’s co-creators, Tami Outterbridge, a writer, and Albert Harris, Jr., a former…

Q&A: Matthew Lillard On “Scream 4″ And Stealing George Clooney’s Wife

Matthew Lillard has one of those faces you don’t forget. Fourteen years after “Scream,” he still has the same hip guy-next-door charm and contagious energy. And he’s poised for a major resurgence. Last year, I had the pleasure of working with Matthew on “Spooner” (to be released soon), a romantic comedy about a guy who…

Frisky Q&A: Matt & Kim On Why Making An Album Is Like Having A Baby

Last weekend, I headed to the sun-drenched beaches of Santa Monica for Pacsun’s Summer Solstice Beach Ballyhoo for music (Ra Ra Riot! Neon Trees!), hot skater boys (Tony Hawk!), and all the glory that is an open bar. But the highlight of the weekend was undoubtedly a performance by the infectiously fun twosome Matt…

Missing Nikki Blonsky from your life after the 2007 remake of “Hairspray”? Have no fear, she’s back again: not in a John Waters musical this time, but on “Huge,” a new TV series about plus-size teens at a weight loss camp.

Frisky Q&A: Margaret Cho Talks Homicidal Exes And Camel Toe

Margaret Cho, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There’s your 1994 show “All-American Girl.” Your stand-up comedy concerts like “I’m The One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” Your shows “The Cho Show,” and most recently, “Drop Dead Diva.” I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass you with…

Q&A: Jamie Beckman, Author Of “The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide”

Last July, The Frisky ran a 30-day guide to getting over a breakup, penned by writer Jamie Beckman. The calendar was such a hit that a publishing company approached us about expanding the idea into a book, which we immediately put into Beckman’s trusty hands. Now, nearly a year later, we’re celebrating the upcoming release…

Tons of readers wrote into the magazine, saying they loved seeing such a realistic-looking woman pictured in the pages of the glossy.

Frisky Q&A: Shallon Lester, Star Of MTV’s “Downtown Girls”

I was not prepared to like Shallon Lester, the star of MTV’s newest reality show, “Downtown Girls.” I mean, she’s on an MTV reality show, right?! These are the people who foisted Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt upon our unsuspecting souls. I prepared myself for MTV’s latest skinny blonde offering to the couch potato god…

Q&A: Molly Ringwald On Confidence, Beauty, And Blane Vs. Duckie

Back in the ’80s, Molly Ringwald inspired us all to sew our own prom dresses and to lust after the hot senior, even though he had a girlfriend and we’d barely spoken. Um, thanks? Luckily, Molly has some much better life advice to share in her new book, Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, and

Frisky Q&A: Dita Von Teese Talks Vintage Shopping, Tabloids, And Not Performing For Men

It’s no secret we’ve got a major crush on burlesque performer Dita Von Teese. What’s not to love? She’s got a bitchin’ wardrobe (and an assistant who takes care of her clothes!), an incredible job, and more confidence than we’ve seen in, well … anyone!

Dita was kind enough to talk to u…

Frisky Q & A: Melissa Febos, Ex-Dominatrix And Author Of “Whip Smart: A Memoir”

A dominatrix: all of us know what one is. But let’s be honest: few of us actually know a woman who earns her living as one (that we’re aware of, anyway). But you’ll become, ahem, intimately familiar with one after reading the recently published book, Whip Smart: A Memoir, by Melissa Febos.

Frisky Q&A: Piper Kerman Talks About Doing Time Behind Bars

In February 2004, Piper Kerman arrived at the women’s prison in Danbury, Conn., to serve a yearlong sentence for a drug-related crime she’d committed 10 years before.

“There’s no visiting today,” an officer told Piper when her fiancé pulled into one of the parking areas.

“I’m here to surrender,” she said.

Frisky Q & A: Singer/Songwriter Sally Seltmann Chats About Her New Album

The moment Sally Seltmann started to sing at the Presbyterian Church during SXSW, my ears instantly perked up. Maybe it was the sound of her angelic voice in a dimly lit church or her jaunty, delicate melodies that got me. After hearing her perform songs from her soon-to-be-released album, Heart That’s Beating (due out o…
