One of the perks of being the editor of The Frisky is that when an important day arrives, like, say, Ryan Gosling‘s 31st birthday, it’s my prerogative to devote an entire slideshow to singing his praises. Hence, 10 photos of my future husband looking breathtakingly hot accompanied by 31 reasons why I am glad he was born 31 years ago. You’re welcome, fellow psychotic Ryan Gosling devotees.

Kim Kardashian’s divorce – after she donned three $25,000 white Vera Wang wedding gowns (at the wedding and on the covers of People and Us Weekly) –might explain why the famous designer announced a new line of ebony wedding dresses. I beat Wang’s hot trend years ago when this bride wore noir. It was the perfect shade for my late night Soho reception where my husband’s dad – a judge – officiated. I also picked the morbid marriage palette before “Sex in the City” actress Sarah Jessica Parker wore black to wed her real groom Matthew Broderick a year after me. Parker later told Harper’s Bazaar she felt like a bad bridal role model, and if she had it to do over, “I would white it up. I’d wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn that day.” Keep reading »

You can’t judge a celebrity’s book by its cover unless it’s a cover as lame as this. Why on Earth is Denise Richards wearing PJ’s and brushing her teeth? And why does she look so happy to be photographed by paparazzi while doing so? A book cover like this makes me think she’s actively trying to get people not to read her book. Or that someone on her team is trying to sabotage her. Well, she’s dissuaded me from cracking the cover, not that I ever would have anyway. Denise isn’t the only celeb with an embarrassing book cover. Click away to see the most ludicrous.

Geek speak is a special slanguage that evolved from our cultural immersion in the techno-verse. Growing up, I never would have guessed that I would come to think of the term “LOL” (or any variation thereof) as a dating dealbreaker or that someone (Anthony Weiner) would resign from public office over “sexting” gone wrong. According to a poll published in The Daily Mail some tech terms are more annoying than others. After the jump, find out which geek speak phrases were voted the most irritating.

Here at The Frisky, we love sluts. When did being in charge of your sexuality become a bad thing? The word first appeared in the English language in the early 1400s as “slutte,” with the meaning being a dirty or slovenly woman. Today, nothing about being a slut has to be off-putting, given the proper accoutrements (condoms, everybody, please!). In fact, having sex for pleasure can be an exercise in healthy living and sound mental health. Promiscuity, and the ability to separate sex and physicality from emotional dependency and attachment, is not something of which to be ashamed.
Let’s take some time to honor proud sluts throughout history!
