Behold, the first official image of the new “Charlie’s Angels”—Annie Ilonzeh (“General Hospital”), Rachael Taylor (“Grey’s Anatomy”), and Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights”). The rebooted show is almost certain to get picked up by ABC, but we’re kind of disappointed with this photo. I was hoping their style would be much edgier. I mean, Annie’s dress is on of those prom-ish disasters favored by the women on “The Bachelor,” and don’t even get me started on Rachael’s brown satin jumpsuit. Minka is the only one who passes fashion muster here. Also, a “Charlie’s Angels” promo pic without the guns and iconic triad stance? Pass. Keep reading »
For those of you out there who want to feel like a slushy is flying directly at you and dribbling down your shirt, get excited—”Glee” in 3D is coming this summer.

Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend. She will be hosting while Ellie Goulding, aka the chickadee who played the royal wedding, does the musical guest thing. “SNL” promos are never quite as funny as I want them to be, but still—just had to share these because we love Tina that much.

On Sunday night, prepare to witness the most unholy of lip locks. While in New York, Audrina Patridge and her often-tipsy mom Lynn stopped by Donald Trump‘s office to talk about “business opportunities” for Audrina — with the cameras for her VH1 reality show rolling, of course. Trump said that Audrina is “beautiful and smart” and would be welcome on “Celebrity Apprentice” or as a co-host of the Miss Universe pageant. Eeek. But the worst part is when Trump and Lynn said goodbye, kissing each other somewhere between the cheek and lip, on repeat. And giving us this horrifying image. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Who do “Inception,” “Transformers” and “The Muppets” all have in common? I was scratching my head on that one. All three movies are examples of “the Smurfette principle,” explains Anita Sarkeesian of the blog Feminist Frequency. “The Smurfette principle” is a common trope in movies and TV shows that try to be palatable to male audiences by having an ensemble of nearly all male characters with one token female character, who is oftentimes uber-feminine (Miss Piggy) or super hot (Megan Fox) or otherwise unthreatening.

Us Frisky ladies are getting pretty into “The Voice,” thanks to the fact that it’s all about the singing and not about image, like “American Idol” can be. For the past two weeks , Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine have been busily assembling their 8-person teams that will battle it out for the next few weeks. The way it worked was simple—a singer belted out a song as the four listened with their backs turned. If a team leader pressed their red button, they’d turn around and that person would be on their team. If more than one of them turned around, the singer could choose the person’s whose team they were most pumped to join. (Duh. Cee-Lo!) If no one pressed their button, the singer was out.
Christina says things got pretty heated when more than one team leader wanted a singer. Keep reading »
