Earlier this month, Jenni “JWoww” Farley became the third “Jersey Shore” cast member to pen a book, releasing The Rules According to JWoww: Shore Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition. (The Situation and Snooki beat her to the bookshelves.) “Women need dating rules like they need bras,” she writes in the intro. “Sure, you can go without them, but if you do—and you’re sporting a nice boob job like I am—you are gonna be flopping out there in the wind. You need the right support.” Nice analogy? [MSNBC]
JWoww has been on the road, hardcore promoting her 214 page book. On Wednesday night, she talked to Leno about it, giving him a few examples of her 60 rules. First, she explained, do not drink on a first date. “Don’t end up like we are on the show. Avoid that,” Jenni said. Yep, I’ll cosign on that.
After the jump, we’ve collected some of the rules from Jenni’s book that she’s discussed so far and rate how sound we think her advice is. Keep reading »
We’ve been hearing about David E. Kelley’s reboot of “Wonder Woman” for months now, with the exception of one vital fact—who will be playing the all important title role. We suggested everyone from Katy Perry to Christina Hendricks, but it looks like Kelley had his eye on someone else—Adrianne Palicki of “Friday Night Lights.” Adrianne is supposedly the only actress he tested for the role, and we highly approve of this choice. Adrianne has the right dark hair/blue eyes look, and we have a feeling she can kick some serious butt. Plus, Lynda Carter agrees—shortly after the casting announcement was made, she tweeted, “Congratulations Adrianne!” [Huffington Post]
So what makes her so awesome? After the jump, everything you need to know about her. Keep reading »
“We have our catchphrases about girls ['grenade,' etc.] but the four girls on the show are as wild as the guys. It’s not just one way. It’s not biased or sexist.”
— Oh, Vinny Guadagnino. You might be the smartest (and most emotionally mature!) cast member on “Jersey Shore,” but you’re still a dim bulb. [Celeb Dirty Laundry]

?Remember Hilary Banks, the prissy older daughter on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”? Well, actress Karyn Parsons—who played our fave ’90s airhead—now runs a charity called Sweet Blackberry and as a fundraiser, she is auctioning off a personal “Fresh Prince” reunion dinner. She will be there, as will Carlton, Ashley, Uncle Phil and, yes, the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith. What, no Aunt Viv? Number one or two? Keep reading »
Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book, CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Tuesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.
The preview for this week’s “Hellcats” promises “a scandal so big, it could take down the Hellcats.” Cheerleading scandals of the personal variety seem to crop up on a semi-regular basis, generally involving a racy photo of a scantily clad cheerleader making its way around the internet. But what about team scandals? Is there anything a team can do to cause a ruckus in the cheer world?
Certainly. Keep reading »
