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.
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.
Every child fears the bogeyman in the closet, but this one little girl's fears turned out to be all too real. A 7-year-old girl in Salem, Oregon, was fast asleep when she woke up and found a man stepping over her on her bed. He then opened a window and fled. Shockingly, police believe the man had broken in hours earlier and had been hiding in the girl's closet.
Kim Kardashian will be guest starring on a sitcom, and it's probably the last one you'd expect. It's 2 Broke Girls, which is about two women who are as far from KK as you could possibly expect -- two financially challenged waitresses. As we know, Kim has never really been broke, and certainly not since KUWTK became a hit show. Now, she's about as far from broke as you could imagine. So I'm guessing she will NOT play one of their also-broke friends.
