All is not a steaming pile of flaming dog shit for women in Hollywood, at least not entirely: My imaginary best friend, screenwriter Diablo Cody, is getting her own talk show on TBS called “Me Time With Diablo Cody”! The tattooed badass who wrote ”Juno” and “Young Adult” will gab about Hollywood and pop culture, which, according to TBS’s press release, will be “told in her very own tongue-in-cheek way.” Okay, that sounds really similar to “Chelsea Lately.” But whatever. There are, like, five white dudes with late-night talk shows that are all basically the same, so, hey, the more ladiezzz on the TV, the better. And Cody is one of the smarter, funnier ladies who could do this job really well. (I cannot say the same for Kris Jenner and her new talk show.) Diablo Cody, I’ll be watching. [Gawker] [Photo: WENN]
Have you been watching the new Comedy Central show, “Inside Amy Schumer”? I haven’t, but after watching the sketch above, I’m adding it to my now-lean DVR queue. In the clip, Amy and a gaggle of pals (including “Saturday Night Live”‘s Abby Elliott) exchange compliments on everything from clothing items to job promotions to pregnancy news, but each is, uh, incapable of accepting the praise graciously. The sketch is hilarious because it absurdly illustrates something that is totally true — by and large, many women have a hard time accepting compliments without at least disparaging themselves in some way first.

Ever sat down and considered the different types of men you attract? I don’t know about you, but like Hannah from “Girls,” I have attracted a plethora of fellas, from dirty-talking Republicans to poets with autism. Variety is the spice of life! Check out this hilarious deleted scene from “Girls”‘ second season above — there’s plenty more on the DVD set to be released in August. [Access Hollywood]
I’m sitting at my desk cry-laughing this morning thanks to, of all things, “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” I haven’t watched the show in a zillion years, but I guess he does something called PumpCast News, where fake newscaster Tim Stack is streamed right into a gas station television monitor, so he can directly interact (read: fuck with) gas station customers.
But there is no way he could have ever imagined how wonderful and entertaining Will and Monifa Sims would be. The two show off their impressive karaoke skills and were brought onto “The Tonight Show” to sing with the show’s band. (Clip after the jump!)

I realize that I’m appealing to a very niche segment of the Frisky readership with this vid, but indulge me. Some amazing YouTuber noticed that Commander William Riker (from “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) always heaves his leg over the chair when sitting down. Why?! He’s so tall! The chairs are always so short. SO UNNECESSARY. So Riker. [YouTube]
“Game of Thrones” is one of my favorite shows on TV, not just right now, but of all time. I must be some kind of magical unicorn, because by virtue of the fact that I have a vagina — I literally just double-checked and, yep, still packing lady parts — I am supposed to hate “Game of Thrones.” This is according to Thrillist’s Renata Sellitti, who wrote an article about why women “hate” the show and offered advice for how “Game of Thrones”-loving men can entice their girlfriends into watching it with them. It is, as you might expect, the biggest pile of direwolf excrement I’ve seen on the internet this week. I am tempted to print out her article, pull down my smallclothes and make water all over it, that’s how bad it is. I’m breathing wildfire I’m so pissed. As Cersei Lannister would say, if she were a woman of the 21st century, BITCH, PLEASE.
Now, I don’t disagree that there are certainly some women out there who hate “Game of Thrones.” (I just don’t happen to know any of them so they clearly weren’t in Renata’s control group. … She polled a wide variety of women in order to determine that basically all of us hate the show, right? I’m sure she did.) But there are also some women who hate “The Bachelor,” “The Real Housewives” franchise and whatever other female-targeted TV shows likely litter Renata’s DVR queue. (I’m not hating on your boob tube choices, girl, I watch those shows too.) And there are certainly men who hate “Game of Thrones,” possibly even for some of the reasons Sellitti claims women are turned off by the show. Oh, yes, the reasons. Let’s review and refute them, shall we? Keep reading »
Blow job, ladies. Blow. Jobs.
In last night’s episode of “Mad Men,” Megan Draper’s saucy French-speaking minx of a mother was back in town, and she had some advice for Megan, whose distance from husband Don was all but obvious. “He may think you belong more to other people than he does to you,” Marie says, having just seen her daughter sign autographs for two teen girls. Her advice for Megan, if she wants to keep her husband interested in her, is to stop dressing like his wife. “The only thought he should have at this dinner is how quickly he can get between your legs,” she says in a bit of TMI sex advice. Megan giggles but complies, and sure enough, after a hilariously uncomfy business dinner with clients, to which Megan wore a chocha-showing dress, Don is rarin’ to go.
I don’t think Marie is wrong that Don has become distant from Megan as her own star has risen — but I certainly don’t think that that is her fault or that it’s her responsibility alone to keep their marriage hot and spicy. But I won’t deny that Marie’s advice worked, at least for the time being. A little while later in the episode, when Don returns home late, Megan gives what I think is the first blow job in the show’s history. Correct me if I’m wrong though.
Anyway, check out two clips above and some GIFs of the episode’s other great moments (spoilers ahead!) after the jump! Keep reading »
Everything is better with puppets, especially other people’s sex therapy sessions. Tonight on LOGO TV is the debut of “Felt,” a reality show that explores real people’s sex therapy sessions — using their real voices! — but enacted by puppets. Think Dr. Ruth meets “Sesame Street”: 24 couples are (anonymously) recorded in exchange for the free therapy for their bedroom issues. The three sex therapists are portrayed as puppets as well. Clients range from a gay couple with body image issues, a lesbian couple with “lesbian bed death,” and some straight Christians who married too young. And because they’re portrayed as, well, puppets, nothing ever gets too uncomfortable for the viewer. (The producers? That might be a different story.) I don’t know about you, but I know what I’ll be watching at 10:30 p.m. EST tonight — puppets working through their sexual issues. [LOGO TV via New York Times]
