It should come as no surprise to readers that The Frisky staff is really into fashion, after clicking through our daily outfits for the last few weeks. Chances are, a lot of what we — specifically myself, Catherine, and Annika — have worn has come from shopping on Gilt.com, an online sample sale website. Each day the site has a handful of new designer sales starting at NOON ON THE DOT and the excitement that fills the office at this moment is, uh, baffling to some. Specifically, to one of our male co-workers — yes, they exist and no they don’t fan us with palm fronds all day — who shot the video above while we engaged in a particularly nail-biting shopping frenzy during one of Gilt’s final sales. For the record, I have worn the jeans. The top still has tags. Keep reading »
Sasha Charnin Morrison keeps a slightly lower profile than that other fashion editor the world is getting to know better, Anna Wintour. But she is a Major-with-a-capital-M player, having worked at all the top glossies like Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Allure, and she is now the Fashion Director at US Weekly. She’s also really hilarious and defies the stereotype her species is known for by being a total rock star in the sweetheart department. She let another lovable fashionista, Abby Gardner from, ahem, Fashionista.com, in to see her closet and let’s just say Sasha’s got a bag collection that would make Kimora Lee jelso. Speaking of envy, watch for the custom Steven Sprouse dress that turned Kate Moss green with the stuff. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
In episode 13 of “MERRIme.com,” Jess and Lindsay throw Merri a party that turns into more than a surprise. Merri learns her “lesson” after a master class from PleasurePreacher1. Um, something tells me Merri should have read our piece on online dating dealbreakers. [MERRIme.com]

So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump. Keep reading »
Last night Jennifer Garner appeared on “The Jay Leno Show” to promote her film “The Invention of Lying.” Or so she hoped. Before Jay would let her talk about the movie, Jennifer had to recite the Boston Red Sox’s starting lineup (since husband Ben Affleck is such a huge fan).
Jennifer was able to name the players with no problem, even adding commentary like, “he looks like George Clooney” and “he’s been having a great year, by the way.” Pretty impressive, Jen!
This got us to wondering just how many of you take on your boyfriend’s hobbies or become fans of the sports teams he likes. Has your boyfriend’s obsessive checking of scores rubbed off on you so much that you’ve become a fan yourself? Keep reading »
Kim Zolciak‘s song “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party,” which was recorded during an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” has been removed from iTunes because producer Don Vito still owns the copyright to the song and hasn’t been paid yet for Kim’s studio time. The song was number three on iTunes for four days last week, according to a source who spoke with E! Online. Kim’s rep had no comment, but Don Vito (he doesn’t have one of those first names that sounds right without the last name) only had pleasant things to say about Kim (unlike that other producer Dallas Austin): “I think [Kim] is a good person and it was fun working in the studio with her. We made a great record and I look forward to working with her on the album again.” [E! Online] Keep reading »
Speaking of politician butts, did you ever want to see Tom Delay shake his? Well, your dreams have finally come true. On last night’s premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” the men of the competition showed their moves. Aaron Carter was clearly the best, but we think that’s cheating since he’s under the age of 50 and has a boy band background. UFC fighter Chuck Lidell took the award for Awkwardest Expression Whilst Salsaing. But it was Delay who stole our hearts with his performance of “Wild Thing,” thanks to his lip syncing, knee sliding, and just generally making everything groovy. Check it out, above. Tonight, the women perform. Go Melissa Joan Hart! Keep reading »
