I'm a former Forbes journalist and blogger who has also waxed lyrical for other places, including Marie Claire, The Frisky, The New York Post, and Women on the Fence. For my book, Can't Think Straight, I was on The Today Show, The Joy Behar Show, The Gayle King Show, and others. (But not Hoarders. One can dream.) I like to tell it like it is, almost as much as I like cats. I know a lot about celebrities and nothing about my neighbors.Visit me at my website or blog.
Mom Lacey Harris was absolutely horrified when called to pick up her young daughter, AvaLynn, from her elementary school in the Pascagoula School District in Mississippi. The sweet little girl looked like she'd just gone 10 rounds with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. The little girl's face was swollen almost beyond recognition, she had two deep black eyes, a mouth swollen so badly it stuck out at least an inch from her face, and a bloody nose. According to Harris, little AvaLynn told her the shocking injuries were sustained when another child on the school playground kicked her repeatedly in the face. But the school is acting like AvaLynn did it all to herself.
Britney Spears is still smarting from her breakup with boyfriend David Lucado, aka The Dumbest Man in the World. David was not even fit to be the guy who fetches Brit water during concert breaks, but he somehow ended up sharing her company, bed, money, and life, and blew it all so he could make out with some other girl.
David needs to donate his brain to science so we can all study it and figure out how so much stupidity got packed into one head. Anyway, Brit, in a refreshing change from a lot of these female celebs, who just seem to take whatever their men dish out (lookin' at you, Selena, Tori, and Karrueche Tran), immediately kicked David back to whatever dull curb he came from. Go, Brit!
Once in awhile, my female friends and I joke about all of us living in the same building together. We would help each other cook and clean and take care of kids. We'd bring each other to doctor's appointments. We'd always have someone to talk to.
The catch? Husbands are strictly forbidden.
Yeah, so maybe we don't know who would trap the mouse if we saw one, but there would be much less arguing. We'd get the help we need instead of resenting the help we don't. Sex? Oh sure. Husband or boyfriend could come over for that. But then they'd have to leave.
Of course, we don't go through with this plan, because we truly do love our men (on good days). But deep in Brazil there is a town that is living this dream. It's called Noiva do Cordeiro, andit's made up of mostly women.
We've heard this story before and it is always so heartbreaking. A 23-year-old woman has been arrested on attempted murder charges for dumping her newborn baby girl in a trash can. Alicia Marie Englert allegedly dumped her baby in the trash can of a neighbor, who luckily heard what she thought was the "meowing" of a kitten and went to investigate.
