The best part of my job for the last five years has been to work with the best group of women I could ever imagine. In addition to my current staff — Jessica, Ami, Julie, Winona and Rachel — who make coming to work each day a serious joy. the women who worked at The Frisky in years past were integral to the site’s success. As I compiled this “Where Are They Now?” gallery of former Frisky staffers, I must admit I got a little weepy, because I miss them, am honored to have worked with them, and am so proud of the great things they’re doing now. Click on to find out what Wendy, Annika, Catherine, Kate, Susannah, Erin, Simcha, Leonora and Judy are up to these days…

“Clueless” is one of the most iconic movies of the ’90s, and it’s also proof that we are all mega-old now, because it actually came out 17 years ago. No matter, because “Good Morning America” has brought the cast together to reminisce about one of the best teen movies of all time. Everyone still looks pretty good (though Christian isn’t as svelte as he used to be)!
I know it seems like only yesterday that we watched it, but it’s been almost 15 years since “Can’t Hardly Wait” came out. We can’t hardly believe it!
Basically, if I had my way, I’d spend all of my time thinking about and researching the ’90s. But since that’s not a viable career option, I suppose this gallery of 10 ’90s superstars will have to do. After the jump, what happened to the guy from Teenage Fanclub, the dude from Suede, and eight others you probably haven’t thought about in a while.
One year before Renee Zellweger became a household name thanks to ”Jerry Maguire,” she starred in the 1995 cult flick ”Empire Records.” To celebrate Renee’s 43rd birthday, we’re taking a look at how the cast of the movie has aged since its release … and what they’ve all been up to in the past 17 years.

I may be over 30, but that doesn’t make me too old to hold out hope for a Daddy Warbucks style adoption, right? So what if I own the “Annie” commemorative plate series or can still quote dialogue from the film? “First the windows, then the floors … in case I drip.” Even I knew she wasn’t there to clean, but it was so endearing that she wanted to earn her keep. Though she was a poor orphan living in the depression, it seemed only natural to wish I were her. Especially after she becomes rich and gets to live in a mansion with an indoor pool and a turbaned body guard. “A child without courage is like a night without stars.” Words of wisdom from Punjab. I’ve been waiting for Aileen Quinn aka Annie to resurface. See what she looks like now after the jump. Keep reading »
No ‘80s teen movie was complete without Molly Ringwald. So we got a little excited today when we saw that, in addition to starring in the show “The Secret Life Of The American Teenager” on ABC, everyone’s favorite teen queen had re-emerged, this time as a singer. Ringwald is using her killer pipes on a jazz record with composer Peter Smith. And just like her career, her vocal stylings have stood the test of time. Here, you can listen to her ditties on the new album “Here It Comes.”
This got us thinking: Where did all the other “The Breakfast Club” brat packers go? We’ve gone all Nancy Drew to find out. Keep reading »
ABC is letting me down. Following up Matt Grant, the hot British guy, with rejected Bachelorette contestant Jason Mesnick for the next season of The Bachelor is such a huge letdown. I know plenty of other women who watched the show, gag, liked the guy, but I found him to be wimpy, and mealy-mouthed, and completely devoid of charm and dazzle. Though I know the producers are hoping to go in a new direction by having a single dad as The Bach, I just don’t buy this as a good spin for a reality TV dating show. It’s irresponsible for a father to date that many women on national TV and then ask one of them to marry him at the end, without having the child get to know what could be his new mommy. But whatevs. I think I am just upset that the next season of The Bachelor is going to be devoid of sex appeal. Keep reading »
To be honest, despite being a loyal viewer, I have hated most of the guys picked to be The Bachelor. In fact, the only guy featured on the show who I could honestly see myself being hot for was Ryan Sutter, the guy Trista, the first Bachelorette gave the final rose to and who she later married. He was friggin’ hot and he seemed nice and he wrote poetry (terrible poetry but I disgress) and he was a fireman. What’s not to love? The rest of The Bachelor‘s have ranged from mediocre (Andrew Firestone) to downright awful (Alex Michel). But the worst of the worst of the worst was Bachelor Aaron Buerge from season two. He was, in a word, a total d-bag. And by the looks of last night’s Where Are They Now? special, he is still just as heinous as ever. For the record, he shows how a fist bump shouldn’t be done.
