Frisky Q&A: Taryn Manning Talks About Playing “Radically Unapologetic,” “Bible-Thumping Freakazoid” Pennsatucky On “Orange Is The New Black”

Like many of you, one of my favorite new shows from the last year is Netflix's "Orange is the New Black," based on the memoir of the same name (by Piper Kermen) that I read a couple of years ago. While I enjoyed the book, I love that the show has become a vehicle for…

Frisky Q&A: “Community”‘s Gillian Jacobs Loves “Dominick The Donkey” And That, My Friends, Is Absurdly Awesome

Gillian Jacobs is a truly awesome human being.

I've always thought Gillia…

Frisky Q&A: “It’s A Disaster” Star Julia Stiles Loves Spanish Judge Judy, But Hates Brunch

Looking over Julia Stiles' IMDB page is a reminder she's more than just the woman we know and love from "10 Things I Hate About You."

Here are some things you should know about author Rachel Shukert: She looks an awful lot like Kathleen Hanna; she wrote and recorded an amazing awards show-worthy Oscar movie medley; she recaps so-campy-it-hurts "Smash" for funsies; and she's the author of three of my favorite books ever. Shukert's first two, Everything Is Going To Be Great

Frisky Q&A: New Band My Dick Replaces Popular Song Lyrics With “My Dick”

Move over, Beatles, because I think I found my new favorite band. Their name is My Dick. Their album? My Dick’s Double Full-Length Release: 23 spot-on covers of some of the greatest hits of the ‘70s–‘90s, with one twist: key words in the lyrics are replaced with “dick.” I spoke to the two artists behind…

Frisky Q&A: Jessica Valenti, Author Of “Why Have Kids?” Plus, Enter To Win A Kindle Fire!

Go to the parenting section of any bookstore and there are hundreds of thousands of pages to read on how to do it and setting expectations for what the experiences should be like.

Frisky Q&A: Ezra Miller, Star Of “We Need To Talk About Kevin”

I'm definitely one of those people who enjoys the vast majority of movies I see in some way. But I'm rarely blown away by a film to the point where I'll want to see it twice in a short period of time. One such film that did have that spirit-moving effect on me was "We…

Even those of us who proudly call ourselves feminists can admit that sometimes other feminists can be a wee bit extreme.

Frisky Q&A: Stitch ‘N Bitch Knitting Queen, Debbie Stoller

I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I don't know how to knit. My mom taught me after college, but I messed up my stitches and abandoned it in frustration. Debbie Stoller promises she can teach me.
