Yesterday Rosie O’Donnell appeared on “Oprah” to promote her new HBO documentary, “A Family Is a Family Is a Family,” which is about the diversity of families around the world today. In the clip above, she opens up about her split from longtime partner Kelli Carpenter, and how she thinks lesbian divorces can be different from straight ones. Keep reading »
“Jersey Shore” is over for the season. Sad! But long live “Jersey Shore” spoofs! I never noticed this before, but Nick Lachey done up in some hair gel is a dead ringer for Ronnie. And if you squint (and I mean really squint), Mila Kunis can pull off a passable Snooki. Really, Snooki should just do all Snooki performances herself. Keep reading »
“Secret Diary of a Call Girl” is back on the air tonight at 10 p.m. and lucky me, some angel at Showtime mailed The Frisky offices a screener of Season 3. Woo-hoo!
When we last left off, Belle ditched her lame boyfriend, who wasn’t supportive of her career, and published her first book about life as a high-class hooker. And because no good series goes without a tease, Belle and her best friend, Ben, kept jerking us around with their will-they-or-won’t-they? thing. On season three, Belle is at work on her second book and we finally get the Ben/Belle relationship. Well, almost … Keep reading »
I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been raining for a week straight in California and I’ve barely left the house. And since bed sores aren’t a great look on a girl, I think it’s about time to venture somewhere dry … preferably somewhere that serves something delicious like popcorn and slurpies, for example. There are some really random movies coming out this week. For some reason the only comedy is “Tooth Fairy,” but if you’re in the mood for something heavy, you’re in luck! Apparently every week will bring us a new apocalyptic movie; this week it’s “Legion,” and on the opposite plane is “Creation,” the story of Darwin’s development of the theory of evolution. If you’re into parents fighting for their kids’ lives, “Extraordinary Measures” should do it. If you’re into parents railing on their kids, “The Girl on the Train” should work. Then there’s the cowboy documentary, “Sweetgrass,” which might be the best choice if the modern world is getting you down. Keep reading »
Rihanna is releasing a cover of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” and is donating all the proceeds to the relief efforts for Haiti. Although she was pretty much messing with perfection, she’s managed to record a decent version that stays true to the original and is also modern. Now that I’ve heard Rihanna’s actual singing voice, I can’t understand why she’s so fond of Auto-Tuning her recordings. Rihanna’s “Redemption Song” can be downloaded for $1.29 on iTunes.

Senator-elect Scott Brown wasn’t the only one who showed some skin in the ’80s. Warning: this might make you uncomfortable. Before the Senator’s wife, Gail Huff, was a legit news anchor, she was a music video girl of the slutty variety. Check her out in this 1984 Digney Fingus video so appropriately entitled “The Girl With The Curious Hand.” In case you missed her, she is the girl in the bikini giving a hand job to a tube of sunscreen. Looks like she’s not the only woman in the family with talent. I guess we know where her eligible daughters Ayla and Arianna learned how to strut around in a bikini. No doubt she passed down her love of music. And sunscreen. Anyone else starting to think the Browns may be a little bit … er … different? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Michelle Phan videos are oddly mesmerizing. But combine her soothing voice with ultra-scary Lady Gaga googly eyes à la “Bad Romance,” and you’ve got viral gold, baby. At around the point where she’s talking about her boiled wig and the circle contacts — and you’re still watching — you know the trance has fully set in. Happy Friday. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
