We’re all for giving a dude a chance. Once you get past a certain age, you realize that there are no perfect men out there. You’re going to have to be more “accepting” if you don’t intend to be single forever. Sometimes the most princely men are the ones we wouldn’t normally go for or whose foibles are easy to get used to with a little paradigm shifting. Do it — throw out your list, be open-minded, look for a feeling and not for a set of qualities. With that being said, there are certain kinds of guys that should be avoided on your dating journey. Click through to see the 10 types of guys that we advise you to steer clear of. Good luck and may the force be with you.
The hosts of reality competition shows are kind of like commercial breaks—necessary evils that you must endure in order to get your tele-fix. I tend to tune them out, their voices becoming like the “wah-wahs” of Charlie Brown’s teacher in “Peanuts.” Reality TV hosts are usually like an extension of the set—only there for decoration and functionality. Until now, there has never been a host I’ve given a crap about. But Cat Deeley, the model-esque host of “So You Think You Can Dance,” is not just a host. She’s a reason to watch the show. She actually adds entertainment value each week. I know, what a concept.
After the jump some reasons why Cat is the cat’s pajamas. Other reality hosts, please take note. Keep reading »
A few weeks ago, we received the worst press release ever. Fleshlight, the purveyor of fine synthetic vagina-like products for men, sent us a PR pitch about getting dad “the best gift a father could ask for.” We think they were kidding. But we still needed to scrub our brains with bleach, then spray them with Lysol and Swiffer their tiny crevices.
Gather ’round, children, and let’s recap which gifts are totally inappropriate (or just plain weird) to give dad this Father’s Day. Keep reading »
A couple weeks ago, Amelia wrote about five of her random pet peeves, from elevator button abusers to people who groan in yoga class. Today, I’d like to focus on my shopping pet peeves — the little things that can turn a routine shopping trip into an exercise in exasperation. I’d love to hear yours too, so please share them in the comments! Keep reading »
Over the past few years working at The Frisky, I have covered an exorbitant number of sex scandals. It’s pretty clear to all of us that sex scandals are cropping up more and more frequently, for both politicians and celebrities. It’s unclear whether people are stepping out more on their marriages, or if technology (texting, Twitter, Facebook) leaves people more vulnerable to being caught, or if our 15-seconds-of-fame culture leads second and third parties to step forward and soak up the limelight more than they would have in the past. But it’s clear that something is certainly up. Insert Weiner joke here.
Oddly, through the sex scandal onslaught, I feel like we’ve learned an awful lot. After the jump, 45 lessons—both big and small—that recent sex scandals have taught us. Who knew they were so educational? Keep reading »

After the jump, some unapproved conversation topics this Father’s Day. Keep reading »
Jessica Simpson has decided to give reality TV another chance. She’s signed on to be the celebrity mentor on NBC’s new series, “Fashion Star,” a “Project Runway”-esque design show hosted by Elle MacPherson. This will be Jess’ third attempt at a reality series — “Newlyweds” ended in divorce and “The Price of Beauty” ended in cancellation — so we hope she’s learned a thing or two. [US Weekly]
After the jump, some suggestions for Jess to ensure that “Fashion Star” is a hit. Keep reading »
Oh, and you think your emails are private? On Friday, the state of Alaska released more than 24,000 emails sent and received by Sarah Palin while she was governor.
