Frisky Q&A: Writer/Director Cherien Dabis Talks “Amreeka,” Tinseltown, And Netflix Picks

When Cherien Dabis was a teen growing up in small town Ohio, the First Gulf War broke out. Her family began getting death threats and her Palestinian father, a doctor, lost patients. These experiences came to inspire the filmmaker to write and direct the award-winning “Amreeka,” a movie that tells the story of Muna, a single mother who leaves her life in the West Bank and moves to Illinois with her teenage son, Fadi. While their move to the United States is filled with obstacles, the movie isn’t a total downer. In fact, it’s filled with amazing family moments that are often sweet and funny, showing a different side of the conflict. Cherien spoke to The Frisky about how similar life experiences drove her to become a filmmaker, what it was like to make a film in Palestine, and which movies we should add to our Netflix queue.

In Defense Of Heidi Montag: Live And Let Lipo

We’re not averse to taking an unpopular stand, so for better or worse, it falls to us to defend the most unlikely hero of all: Heidi Montag, a.k.a. “Mrs. Spencer Pratt,” a.k.a. “the girl from ‘The Hills’ who married the guy with the worst beard on the planet.” PopEater’s Oliver Miller takes up the gauntlet in honor of a recently sculpted and much-maligned Montag. Check out his logic Keep reading »

Cute Or Creepy? New MA Senator Scott Brown Announces His Daughters Are “Available”

Eeeek, you think your parents are embarrassing? Republican Scott Brown won a Senate seat in Massachusetts last night and used his victory speech to announce his college-aged daughters are single and ready to mingle. Arianna, who is pre-med at Syracuse, and Ayla, who appeared on “American Idol” and is a student at Boston College, stood by their dad’s side while he told millions of people watching on TV they were “both available”—then when corrected by Ayla, announced only “Ayla is definitely available.” The crowd started laughing and cheering and at this point his wife, Gail, shrieked, “Stop!”

What do you think? All-in-good-fun cute or majorly creepy? Keep reading »

Heidi Montag Explains Surgeries, Hints At More To Come


Just in case you can’t get enough either — sorry folks, but it’s the kind of train wreck that’s simply impossible for us to look away from — here is a more detailed look at exactly what procedures 23-year-old Heidi Montag had done. But just for the record, she wants you to know that she is not a plastic surgery addict, got it? I mean, it’s not like she got, like, 50 procedures in 15 minutes. That would be one thing.

The Puppy Cam Is Back!!


Gah, you guys, the puppy cam is back!!! Isn’t this just what we need to get through these dreary days of winter, devastating global news, and, you know, work? The Shiba Inu Puppy Cam first hit the scene in late 2007 when the breeder’s dog, Kika, had pups. Now she has a new litter — the “B” team — and the breeder will livestream their crazy-cute antics during the day. The new litter has three males and two females. All of them are beyond adorable, and at this very moment they’re nursing from their mama who is licking each one clean. Well, there goes the rest of my work day! [via Gawker] Keep reading »

“The Pregnancy Pact” Story Was Born To Be A Lifetime Made-For-TV Movie

Lifetime Original Movies are always tabloid-y (my pops calls them “women in distress films that Mom watches”), but the upcoming flick “The Pregnancy Pact” really takes the cake. Remember a few years ago when the scandal broke that 17 teen girls at Gloucester High School in Massachusetts made a “pregnancy pact” to get knocked up and have their babies together? Remember how everyone freaked out? Then remember how the pregnant girls all agreed the media just made it up and there was no pregnancy pact?

No matter. Lifetime has made a sure-to-be-fantastic, made-for-TV movie all about it, which will air Jan. 23. Keep reading »

“Bachelor” Jake Drops By “Ellen”


Dorky “Bachelor” Jake dropped by the “Ellen” show yesterday and showed about as much personality as a radish dipped in hummus. He didn’t reveal much dirt except that he “may” not have chosen anyone at the end, he definitely fell in love with more than one person during the show, and thinking about Rozlyn engaging in inappropriate relations with one of the staffers “makes him turn red.” Gag! For her part, Ellen seems to think Ali will be the final woman standing, Michelle should stay around for good TV, and Elizabeth — the “don’t kiss me girl,” who was kicked off last night — is manipulative. Do you guys think Ellen is right? Will Ali get a ring at the end, or do you believe Jake who keeps insinuating he’s not going to choose anyone? [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week of January 18th 2010

I won’t lie to you guys. I have totally been watching the “Golden Girls” marathon on the Hallmark channel all day, and it has been awesome. But even if you missed it, there’s still lots of great television coming at you this week, from the season premieres of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and “Being Erica” to the start of new shows like “Life Unexpected” and “Paranormal Cops” that have a lot of promise.

Stick A Cork In It, Julia Roberts!


I need to get something off my chest. I cannot stand Julia Roberts and her appearance at the Golden Globes last night only fed my raging fire of loathing. For some inexplicable reason, the nominee (for “Duplicity,” which no one saw) had the honor of giving away the award for “Best Picture Drama” and, as I should have expected, she used the opportunity to focus on herself. “Finn, Hazel, and Henry go to bed,” she cooed into the camera. Hey, guess what, Jules? That would have been cute if you were at the mic because you won an award, but guess what? You didn’t, so stick to the script. (Did I mention she was wearing a wholly inappropriate short, black dress that seemed better suited for the office?) The moment was reminiscent of the time a few years ago, when Roberts was tasked with giving away the Best Actor trophy at the Academy Awards and, upon seeing who won (Denzel Washington), made sure to crow, “I love my life!” No. One. Cares. Now go make a movie worth seeing, dork. (The only person who was more annoying than Roberts was James Cameron himself, who reminded us, 11 years after that whole “I’m the king of the world!” acceptance speech, that he is a mega douche.)

Johnny Weir’s Reality Show Debuts Tonight!


Ice skating was already a pretty flaming sport, but then Johnny Weir came along and it got taken to a whole ‘nother level. Weir is famous for his flamboyant, over-the-top routines, but off the ice, he’s just as entertaining. That’s probably why the Sundance Channel had the brilliant sense to give the dude his own reality show, “Big Good Johnny Weir,” debuting tomorrow night at 10 pm. To remind yourself of why he’s soooo worth watching, check out the figure skating routine he did to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” after the jump… Keep reading »
