It will never cease to amaze me how much some couples spend on their weddings. I suppose the logic is that if you have the money, why not spend it even if it’s a one day celebration of a union that has a 50 percent of failure. That divorce statistic, by the way, is scientifically exact for the celebrity couples featured in this Top 10 list of expensive celebrity weddings. They all spent $1 million or more on their big day, but only half of them are still married. Keep clicking to see how much they spent, on what exactly, and whether it was worth it.
Summer dating can be really romantic. Get a beer outdoors! Wear that sexy sundress! Show off your tan! It’s all fun and games until someone starts to sweat. And it will probably be you. At least in winter the worst you can do is shiver uncontrollably or slip on a patch of ice. I have done both and they have only served to make me more adorable to my dates. Sweating is not adorable in any way, shape, form. No man has ever complimented me on my shiny face, where my sweat tends to concentrate its attention. It’s gross. It’s the thing I dread happening most on a date. But when temperatures and humidity sky rocket, it’s inevitable. After the jump, some ways to combat your sweatiness on summer dates. Keep reading »
I don’t discriminate against men of any kind. I’ve dated the disabled, the bald, the fat, the moobed—you name it, I’ve let it into my bed. Imperfections only make a dude more relatable in my eyes. All of us have “flaws” — from foot nipples to cellulite — and it would be cruel to fault another human being for his. I secretly delight in finding out that a gorgeous man is is not as perfect as he appears.
Everyone wants to look gorgeous on their wedding day, since you know that all eyes will be on you and that many albums’ worth of photos will be snapped. But very few brides probably anticipate taking a mug shot in their wedding dress and veil. This is exactly what happened to 53-year-old Tammy Lee Hinton of Michigan. She had a warrant out for her arrest for felony theft three years earlier, and so police officers used her wedding as the perfect opportunity to finally take her into custody. They did this moments after she walked down the aisle. And while the officers offered that she could change ensembles for her mug shot, she chose to stay in her wedding dress. After posting bail 30 minutes later, she headed to her reception. [Tabloid Prodigy] Now, sure, felony theft charges are a huge deal. But really, did the officers have to arrest Tammy at her wedding? I mean, there was no other opportunity? Hopefully, they at least brought a gift. In Tammy’s honor, we’re paying homage to other brides who ended up in the big house on their big day.
I am aware that it is common practice in some households to kiss other family members on the lips. These are likely the same families that feel comfortable walking around the house naked. No judgement of these very, uh, open people, but I am of the opinion that this is creepy. And that holds true if the family members happen to be famous. Click through to see some awkward moments of famous family members caught locking lips. Warning: prepare to feel uncomfortable. Unless you are fine with this kind of thing in which case, enjoy.
It’s hard for me to process the fact that, tonight at 9 p.m., one of my favorite television shows will be coming to an end. “Friday Night Lights” has been brilliant since minute one and, five seasons later, it has remained a joy to watch. The norm for a high school show is for it to move at a rapid clip, with oodles of plotlines being thrown out and resolved each episode. But, in part because of the show’s focus on the Taylor family, “Friday Night Lights” has always unfolded slowly, taking time to build both its plots and characters. A single plot could linger for an entire season. See: Julie’s affair with her married TA and the return of Vince’s convict dad.
After tonight’s finale, “FNL” will be going off the air, only to be seen only in syndication on ESPN. And it’s shocking to me how little fanfare this fact has gotten. I mean, I know it’s awkward since many people have seen already finale (it aired earlier this year on DirecTV and also, the season five DVD is already out) but still, people, this is it! I’m glad other bloggers are having as hard a time with this as I am. Over at The Awl, Sarah Blackwood says a teary goodbye to the show and at Survey Monkey, fans are rating everything from the show’s hottest characters to its best bromance. But my favorite piece I’ve seen so far is at Grantland, where Robert Mays has compiled an oral history of “FNL.” After the jump, 10 facts I learned from it. Keep reading »
There’s no eloquent way to talk about bush, or for those of you who prefer to be anatomically correct, pubic hair. But some terms for ladies’ pubic regions are far more inappropriate than others. For example, a certain Frisky employee who shall remained unnamed, referred to her own bush as a “fur pie.” As in, “I am off to get my fur pie waxed.” I had never heard the term before and I hope never to hear it again. After the jump, a list of unapproved names for a woman’s bush. Keep reading »
I saw “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” over the weekend. In 3-D. And I am so not into action movies. Now to be fair, my boyfriend had already bought tickets to “Horrible Bosses” for us, but I found myself wanting to please him since I knew he would much rather watch the Decepticons than Colin Farrell. I called him and suggested we see “Transformers” instead. Well, he jumped on it, returned the original tickets and immediately reserved our seats. “Babe, it’s going to sell out. We have to get there early!” he said, so excited.
Oh, the things we do for love. And lust. And infatuation. (And perhaps desperation, too). Have you ever found yourself doing things you said you would never do for a boyfriend, or a guy you’re dating, or even just a guy you want to date? I posed this question to the rest of The Frisky staff. So, take a moment and stop folding skidmark-stained undies and check out these 22 things we thought we would never do for a man—until we did.

I accepted jeggings. I even bought a couple pairs. They did nice things for my behind. But I draw the line at jweats. Yes, jweats are what happens when jeans and sweats make sweet love and produce a really awkward baby. They are the new clothing item poised to sweep the fashion world. Only they are ugly, unflattering, and I refuse to ever put them on my body. Denim is a wonderful material, but it needs to be used thoughtfully and strategically when it comes to fashion. Click through to see some other jean hybrids we would never, ever be caught dead in.
Tom Felton, aka Draco Malfoy, has a new career in mind now that he has been released from his “Harry Potter” duties. He plans to go from wielding a wand to spitting some rhymes. “I was thinking of doing some [British hip-hop group] N-Dubz-style stuff,” Felton explained. “I am looking to get into the grime rap UK scene. I’m going to change my image—backward caps, the lot.” [Huffington Post]
Now my first reaction to this is: Tom, noooooo! But then again, I would have said the same thing about Drake when I only knew him as Jimmy Brooks on “Degrassi” and he is actually amazing. Still, Tom sure seems like he is about to join a grand celebrity tradition. After the jump, stars who had no business trying their hand at hip hop. With videos, naturally.
