“Hellcats” Cram Session: Who Are Cheerleading Coaches?

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 Wednesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.

Tonight’s episode of “Hellcats” will involve lots of neon and crimped hair. The squad throws a rocking ’80s costume party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the squad. During the shindig, Hellcats coach Vanessa sings two classic ’80s tunes—she does an awesome rendition of “We Got the Beat” with Marti and Savannah, before giving us a solo of “Tempted By the Fruit of Another.” Interesting, since while she loves her boyfriend, the (hot!) athletic department doctor, she used to have a thing with football coach Red Raymond.

As the Hellcats mythology goes, Vanessa was a Hellcats squad member 10 years ago. So how realistic is this? Keep reading »

Fall TV Guide: “Skating With The Stars” One-Ups “DWTS”


Ice skating has never been my favorite activity. See: me clinging to the side wall for dear life during every ice skating birthday party I went to as a kid. But ABC’s newest show, “Skating with the Stars,” is seriously upping the ante on “Dancing with the Stars” by taking C-listers and having them strap on skates, to not only learn how to dance on ice, but also to do lifts, spins, jumps, and other Olympic-caliber moves. We are expecting some hard spills, nasty bruises, and probably a few broken bones.

Last night, ABC announced the cast for this new series. Find out who they are, after the jump! Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Think You Should Put Sugar In Your Vajayjay


Want to make sure your lady business tastes as sweet as a Cinnabon? Kandi and Phaedra from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” have a suggestion! On Monday’s episode, the gynecologically brilliant duo discussed “dipping your fingers in some sugar” and “sticking the fingers in your vajayjay” making you taste sweet and “sticky.” Not to mention incredibly itchy, as sugar completely upsets the normal pH balance in the vagina, causing yeast infections. Yeast infections, my dear dumb housewives, are not sexy. Keep reading »

Tim Gunn Rooted For Mondo, But Is Cool With Gretchen Winning “Project Runway” Because She’s Poor


Well, this is interesting. In the video above, Tim Gunn is asked what he thought about the “Project Runway” finale, in which Gretchen was awarded the top prize. Tim explains that host Heidi Klum asked him who he thought should win and he agreed with her that Mondo was the best choice, but that Heidi couldn’t get Nina Garcia or Michael Kors to budge. In the end, Tim agreed with some random woman in a deli, who told him that Mondo would succeed no matter what, while Gretchen needed the money. And that, my friends, will go down as the real reason Gretchen, who everyone hated for her attitude and hippie dippie designs (except me), won “Project Runway.” Keep reading »
