“My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” Hits American Shores

As someone who is some small percentage Gypsy (my mother swears we’re Russian from the Caucaucus mountains), I’m more than a little bit fascinated by Gypsy culture. I’ve watched the UK version of “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and have been blown away by the elaborate wedding ceremonies Gypsy families participate in, passing off their often very young daughters into marriage. Gypsy communities seem to be tightly knit and in some ways highly traditional (despite the short skirts that many of the young women wear to their friend’s weddings, Gypsy girls are expected to remain very, very chaste until marriage.)

Gypsies aren’t just a European phenomenon, either. A new TLC series documents the similar Gypsy culture in the U.S. — a people who also fight against immense prejudice and stereotypes, who love fiercely and who really seem to love a big, froofry, extravagant wedding dress. Check out the American version of “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” on Sunday nights at 10 pm EST, and check out some of the girl’s wild dresses here.

Hold on to your sparkles, Betsey Johnson, fashion’s original wild child, is primed to get her own reality TV show on the Style Network later this year. Tentatively titled “Betsey + Lulu,” the show will follow Ms. Johnson and her daughter Lulu’s adventures and mishaps. The show is slated to focus on the relationship between mom and daughter, and how “single mother Lulu wants to launch her own fashion label and finally step out from Betsey’s shadow.” Betsey and Lulu have long collaborated — with a teenage Lulu walking in her mom’s shows in the ’90s — so we’re psyched!

My "WNTW" Makeover
What happened when I went on "What Not to Wear" Read More »

Yesterday I attended the first-ever taping of “What Not to Wear” in front of a live studio audience. I was invited to attend because, as you may remember, last year I was surprise-ambushed by my friends and family and coworkers and given a $5,000 makeover — complete with a wardrobe overhaul, make up assessment and new hairdo. As a past contributor — which is what “WNTW” calls its makeovers — I was invited to update viewers on my life since the show aired. But I also learned a ton – from “WNTW” experts Stacy London, Clinton Kelly, Carmindy and Ted Gibson– about what exactly goes into putting together a hour-long TV program in front of a studio audience. I won’t reveal exactly what went on during the one-of-a-kind episode — you’re going to have to tune in to find out! — but you should definitely click through for tips on makeup, clothes and how your TV sausage is made.

I started watching “Justified” because my boyfriend has a huge crush on Timothy Olyphant, who plays the main character, Raylan Givens. By the end of the first episode I’d discovered that it’s humanly impossible to not have a crush on Timothy Olyphant, but I was also intrigued by another character: Raylan’s ex-wife, Winona. Not only does she have the best name ever (I would know), she’s smart, tough, complicated, and she’s got great style: her court reporter job calls for pencil skirts and pretty blouses in a muted palette. Click through to get this professional look for yourself!

Snooki Paid $32K To Speak At Rutgers—$2K More Than They’re Paying Toni Morrison

On Thursday night, Snooki spoke at Rutgers University in New Jersey, just a short drive from Seaside Heights, and pulled in a crowd of 2,000 students. “When you’re tan, you feel better about yourself,” she said, as words of wisdom for the students. “Study hard, but party harder.” Parents, of course, are up in arms about this. Especially when the news broke that Rutgers paid Snooki an insanely whopping $32,000 for her appearance. That’s $10,000 more than the school’s annual tuition and housing fees. And it’s also $2,000 more than the university paid will pay Toni Morrison, famed author and Nobel Prize winner, for her commencement address last this year.

After the jump, some more famous faces Snooki banked more than for her appearance. Keep reading »

Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Wednesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.

At the end of last week’s “Hellcats,” Marti and Lewis finally kissed. Tonight, it looks like they will have some pretty intense makeout sessions. Interestingly, Marti isn’t the first member of his squad that Lewis has dated—he also has a past with squad mean girl Alice.

Watch The “Mad Men” Cast And Crew Sing “Bye Bye Birdie”!

Hey, there’s a reason the cast and crew of “Mad Men” aren’t in musical theater! But if you can ignore how they all sound like a cat slowly dying, it’s pretty cute. And yes, somebody gets naked. (It’s not Jon Hamm, unfortunately.)
