Kirstie Alley Stumbles On “Dancing With The Stars”


Last night was a cringe-worthy episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” The contestants had to dance out tales of their personal struggle. Petra Nemcova danced about surviving the tsunami in 2004. And Kirstie Alley splayed herself wide open, dancing to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and dedicating her performance to her mom, who was hit and killed by a drunk driver in 1980, right before her acting career took off. So it made it even sadder when, a short moment into their performance, Kirstie dipped into her partner Maksim Chmerkovsky and they both tumbled to the ground after a slide. They got back up, but Maksim took a few seconds and winced pretty dramatically before the two started dancing again. Luckily, the judges were very forgiving. [TV Squad] Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: DeAnna Pappas On Finding Love, For Real This Time

DeAnna Pappas has had a long, strange ride on “The Bachelor.” First, she fell for Brad Womack, only for him to walk away without proposing to either woman at his final rose ceremony. Next, she came back as “The Bachelorette” and fell in love with quirky snowboarder Jesse Csincak, only to find out they weren’t compatible after all. Finally, she met the twin brother of a guy from Jillian Harris’ season of “The Bachelorette,” and fell in love—this time for real. And while she’s in the midst of planning her wedding, she had the surreal experience of sitting back on the couch and watching Brad get a second shot at “Bachelor”-dom.

On April 9th and 10th, DeAnna will be one of the guests of honor at the Reality Rocks Expo, a two-day conference celebrating the phenomenon of reality TV. To get ready, she sat down with The Frisky to talk about her upcoming wedding, what reality TV auditions are really like, and, of course, whether Brad and Emily will make it. Keep reading »

Ryan Kwanten Helps Hurt Man In Street

Ryan Kwanten might be a blubbering hottie slash wannabe cop on “True Blood,” but in real life, he’s kind of heroic. On Friday night, he was driving in his car in Hollywood when he saw a man in the middle of the road who was bloody and unable to move. “No one was doing anything,” a witness says. “[Ryan] pulled up, saw the man down, jumped out of his car, and raced over to see if he could help.” Apparently, Ryan shouted for help and with several others, moved the man to the sidewalk. He stayed with him until an ambulance arrived. And you thought it was his six pack that was impressive? [PopEater]

It’s hard out there for white men. That’s why Roy Den Hollander is fighting the nefarious advances of gender equality, right at ground zero of feminism‘s proudest accomplishment: ladies’ night. Yes, two-for-one drinks deals could not be more threatening to the centuries of male privilege that guys have enjoyed. Hollander’s quest only got more difficult when an appeals court ruled in September 2010 that offering discounted drinks to certain clientele did not constitute “discrimination.” Now he’s fighting mad! On the “Difference Makers” segment of Thursday’s “The Colbert Report,” Stephen Colbert profiled self-titled anti-feminist lawyer Roy Den Hollander and his noble quest to rid the world of feminism and drink specials, and introduced us to the concept of PMS: “persecuted male syndrome.” Men, are you sufferers?
