If you’re a 20- to 35-year-old woman without any children I caution you against dating a man with kids. I did this once and, let me tell you, I learned my lesson. I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship. Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion. He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room. I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again. Keep reading »
Movie studios know we will eat up pure sap around Valentine’s Day. As cheesy as it’s probably going to be, I can’t wait for “He’s Just Not That Into You,” which comes out a month from tomorrow. I laughed out loud watching this new trailer, mostly because there are some valid points. Like Drew Barrymore’s character says, “I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home. And then he emailed to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to be rejected by seven different technologies.

There are so many great movies out in theaters now: “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Revolutionary Road,” “Marley & Me”… But I’m a broke ass ho who can’t afford to pay $12 a ticket, but, thanks to the TV, I saw this lil’ gem, “Bed Head,” during a film festival and it’s up on YouTube for free. Yay, for the interweb! Now, I’m not sure why the lady star is wearing a tube dress and carrying a clutch mid-day, but love is all about the suspension of disbelief.
A lot of infomercials market products that are totally ridiculous — for example, the Snuggie — but this one is actually something that has Catherine and I saying, “Why didn’t we think of that?” Strap Perfect helps hide pesky exposed bra straps! With something that basically amounts to a flat, round, plastic paperclip! [StrapPerfect.com] Keep reading »
2008, for all its Debbie Downers, had some of the hottest dance music and videos! Since MTV won’t play them, WE WILL! From fantastical geometric landscapes to sonic glam ninjas, here are The Frisky’s picks for the Best Music Videos of the Year:
1. Empire of the Sun, “Walking On A Dream”: This Australian outfit is arguably the sweetest current glam band. Their decadence and their dance hooks are so catchy, we actually miss the ’80s!
One of the ballads on Beyonce’s I Am Sasha Fierce is a track called “Smash Into You.” Well according to PerezHilton.com, “The song originally called ‘Smack Into You’ was written for Jon McLaughlins sophomore album Ok Now by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Though, the song was later scrapped from the album, Jon did perform the song live on his summer/fall tour. Not letting an amazing song go to waste, it was presented to Beyonce and changed to ‘Smash Into You.’ Thats the part Beyonce must have ‘written’ in order to receive that coveted writing credit because the two versions are practically identical lyrically otherwise.” You can listen to the original above, Beyonce’s version after the jump, and decide for yourself….
