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.
What would you do if you were a coffee shop barista who turned her back to get a customer's order and that customer slipped his hand in your tip jar and stole your hard-earned cash? Call the police? Curse? Vow to never turn your back again? If you're the staff at the Nervous Dog Coffee Bar in Stow, Ohio, you don't do any of the above. Instead, you start a food drive for the sticky-fingered thief!
Whenever a teen gets behind the wheel of a car and drives drunk, it is a bad situation. Even more horrific is when that teen crashes and dies. With all of the awareness we have about drunk driving now, you would think and hope this would still not be happening. But it is. Thousands of teens die every year in drunk driving accidents. Let's face it, teens think they are immortal. They don't think it's going to happen to them. Plenty of adults think that way, so why wouldn't young people, who have little concept of the harsh reality of life? But when one teen drinks and drives and dies ... should her friends be arrested? Yes. At least according to the Glastonbury, Connecticut police.
Robert Pattinson has certainly been getting around lately. First, we heard all about how he got photobombed at a party by a small packet of flour (or maybe cocaine). Then he made out with a pretty model in his new Dior Homme commercial. Kristen must be pulling her hair out. Or, you know, just looking kinda grumpy. But finally she can view pictures of Rob with another woman and feel ... okay about it! Yeah, this isn't another Katy Perry thing. Rob was photographed attending a party with a very hot, very blond, very famous young actress. But Kristen (or Dylan Penn, or whoever) shouldn't be worried about this one.
Breakups are hard. Really hard. But that's because you were with someone you loved, someone you cared about, someone you imagined a future with. But sometimes breakups with people you don't even know can be just as difficult. It shouldn't be that way, of course, but some people's idea of a "relationship" is a tad CRAY. Lately, I've heard stories about friends who date someone once, maybe twice, or they don't even get to the first date yet -- and suddenly there's this huge, gut-wrenching, embarrassing, painful, acrimonious "breakup" to deal with. WTF? Here are 7 "breakups" that never should have happened.
It's bad enough when you're admitted to a hospital for being so drunk that you can't function. Yeah, maybe you got yourself in that position, but also maybe you had no idea you would react that badly to too much alcohol. It can happen, especially when you're young. But now imagine you call a friend for support -- who happens to be a doctor -- and that man reportedly live tweets your intoxicated condition with mocking hashtags like, "Cuvee #bottle #service #gone #bad." A woman is suing a doctor for that exact scenario. And I don't blame her one bit.
