Michelle Obama spoke to the Department of Health and Human Services yesterday afternoon. Relax, the clip above is not at all boring. It’s Michy talking about how she relied on fast food when she was working and raising Sasha and Malia, and comparing the drive-thru to heaven. She’s kind of hilarious. Also, how does she make a sweater set look so good? Keep reading »
There was a huge gay rights march in Washington, D.C. this weekend and “The Daily Show” had its best man on the case. John Oliver hit the streets to talk with rainbow-wearing folks about their nefarious aims—equal rights, fair treatment, dangerous things like that. Brace yourself, folks, because they’re here, they’re queer, and they have a gay agenda. Keep reading »
On Friday we told you about the controversy surrounding a Ralph Lauren print ad which featured a photograph of a model that was Photoshopped to s**t, whittling her waist to bizarre thinness. Ralph Lauren reps have since said the photo was an accident and doesn’t represent their brand ideals. Well, that model, Filippa Hamilton, appeared on “Today” this morning to blow up Ralph’s spot even more, claiming the brand fired her for being too heavy and not being able to “fit” in the clothes anymore. Check out her interview, above. Keep reading »
It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. This week, the Flaming Lips head back into the womb, Michael Bublé brings his retro stylings into the present, Shakira lets out her claws, and Say Anything gets self-conscious. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump.
Ladies: beware of gentlemen furiously checking their iPhones with suspiciously thorough knowledge about the early ’90s punk scene. Pepsico’s energy drink company AMP UP is hawking a free app that feeds men lines based on a woman’s interests, like whether she’s a “treehugger” or a “goth.” The Before You Score app proclaims to help dudes demystify 24 “types” of our confounding species, including flattering ones like “cougar,” “rebound girl,” “princess,” “nerd” and “out of your league.”
Guys? If you need to consult your iPhone so you can talk to us and/or fake an interest in politics or the environment in order to be interesting, you’re out of our league already. Keep reading »
Blow-up dolls have feelings, too, you know. They’re not simply inanimate objects that lonely men can have their way with. At least that’s the premise behind the Japanese film “Air Doll.” Based on a manga, “Air Doll” tells the story of an inflatable sex doll who magically comes to life and explores the world after her owner leaves for work each day. She even starts dating a man she meets in a video rental store. The movie, which was shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, isn’t available on Netflix quite yet, but we’ve already added it to our queue in anticipation of its U.S. release. Keep reading »
A recent Frisky meeting almost came to blows when it came to the subject of Ivanka Trump and her new business book, The Trump Card. In one corner, there was me — I get enraged like a Pamplona bull at the slightest whiff of nepotism. Donald Trump‘s daughter has a lot of nerve writing a business advice book, coasting through life with the last name “Trump”! But in the other corner we had sweet ol’ Catherine who said she really likes and respects Miss Trump. Ivanka may have been born Donald Trump’s daughter, Catherine said, but she’s still worked hard of her own accord! I wasn’t buying it.
I’ll eat my words today, though, after watching a clip of Ivanka on “Good Morning America.” I still think it’s silly that she wrote a business advice book, but I have more respect for Ivanka knowing she’s serious about following in her dad’s real estate footsteps. In this clip she explains how Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, called her up on the eve of her graduation and offered her the job “a million girls would die for” at Vogue … which Ivanka turned down.
Still … way to keep the torch of nepotism burning, Anna. Keep reading »
Kelly Osbourne has majorly grown on us since her days as a sort of bratty kid on “The Osbournes.” Now that she’s on “Dancing with the Stars,” we’re getting to see a side to Kelly we never knew existed! Last night, she admitted to loving musicals and being disappointed that she didn’t get to play the lead in “Chicago” on stage because she “couldn’t dance.” Watch the clip above to hear how “DWTS” has done wonders for Kelly’s confidence, then watch her and partner Louis Van Amstel do the Charleston — and prove the people who said she couldn’t dance wrong — after the jump.

Over the past few weeks, there’s been so much new TV and so little time. But now that we’ve reached mid-October, it’s time to settle in and get comfortable with your old favorites. This week brings the season premieres of “30 Rock,” “Nip/Tuck,” and “Ugly Betty.” Oh, but there are a few new things, too. You definitely won’t want to miss DJ AM’s “Gone Too Far,” which promises to be “Intervention” turned up a few notches. Oh, and “The Newlywed Game” welcomes its first gay couple. Keep reading »
