Olivia Wilde And Stephen Colbert Have An “Act Off”

Last night, Olivia Wilde was on the “The Colbert Report” to promote her new film, “People Like Us.” While that movie looks like a total snooze and I can’t co-sign on Chris Pine’s stupid eyebrows, Olivia seems like a totally rad lady. She stumped for Obama, wore her Dogs Against Romney pin, and challenged Colbert to…

Stephen Colbert Has A Great Plan For Sweden’s Twitter Account

So maybe you’ve heard about Sweden’s weird Twitter experiment, wherein they’re allowing perfectly average Swedish citizens to take over the country’s Twitter account for a week at a time. The nation’s current national Twitterer is a woman named Sonja, who seems mildly obsessed with Hitler and Jews and “The Little Mermaid.” Don’t believe us? Check…

Stephen Colbert Begs Anna Wintour Not To Suck Him Into “Her Gay World”

Anna Wintour expressed a rare bit of enthusiasm on last night’s “Colbert Report” in discussing President Obama’s support of gay marriage. “I am thrilled,” Wintour managed to get out with a smile, even. “There were tears in the office at Vogue today. I think it’s a long overdue endorsement. And oh, they also discussed the…

Stephen Colbert Gets Schooled On Stereotypes Of Black Women

If you’re not already a fan of Melissa Harris-Perry, you will be soon: she’s a Tulane University political science professor who appears often on “The Rachel Maddow Show” and just scored her own show on MSNBC.

Stephen Colbert On Free Birth Control And Boner Pills


The Frisky has kept you up-to-date on what Bill O’Reilly and other conservatives think about health insurers being told to cover women’s birth control without co-pays — i.e. will Blue Cross/Blue Shield cover mani/pedis next? Thankfully, Stephen Colbert has also weighed in and it’s a good thing, too. How else would we…

Stephen Colbert Sends Up Summer’s Eve Douche Douchiness (NSFW)

Stephen Colbert is always on the lookout for injustice against menfolk. And where do men suffer the most than in the field of genital cleaning products? Women have long enjoyed empowering cleaning agents marketed to their dirty vaginas. But the poor, dirty penis? Shamefully ignored. What nerve!

When Summer’s Eve douche products

Colbert Tells “The View” To Leave “Papa Bear” Alone

The women of “The View” definitely learned one thing from Stephen Colbert’s visit yesterday: Don’t mess with Papa Bear. That’s Colbert’s nickname for Bill O’Reilly. In a show of solidarity with O’Reilly, Colbert pretended to walk off the set of “The View” yesterday during his segment. Colbert’s gesture was in reference to O’Reilly’s controversial

Celebs We’d Be Happy To Hire — As Interns

Yesterday we told you about The Gap’s new intern, Kanye West, who joins a long line of celebrities (temporarily) giving up their high-paying day jobs in order to learn something new from the ground up.

Quickies!: Halle Berry Is A Poser?

Halle Berry tries to convince regular women that she really is just a snacking-in-front-of-the-TV-girl-next-door in Harper’s Bazaar. By the way, I’m not feeling the blonde hair on Halle. What do y’all think? [Shine]
Stephen Colbert tricked another congressman into admitting he enjoys prostitutes and cocaine. You’d think they’d learn from Robert Wexler’s run-in with Colbert.

Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy
Axl Rose’s anthemic rock voice still makes my panties wetter than the November rain. Chinese Democracy, inflated by all the hype and a very, very long wait, surprisingly lives up to its promise — even with the all new band line-up. “Better” has some of the sickest guitar squeal…
