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.
So say you were going through a tough time in your life. Would you a) get some therapy, b) treat yourself to a night out, c) call your friends and talk it over? If you did any of the aforementioned, then you are not a woman from Connecticut who eased her emotional turmoil by stealing an angel statue from a teen's grave site.
"Those were the daaaaays!" Archie and Edith Bunker sang. And no sooner do we hit middle-age than most of us begin wailing how great things wereback then. Hey, remember when you used to play outside all day long with no fear of pedophiles, and gas was a nickel a gallon, and no one ever showed their boobs on TV? Remember when authority was respected, the cops were always the good guys, and no one ever in the history of the world got murdered? Well, if you remember those days, your memory is a tad skewed. Surely some things were better then (gas and housing were cheaper for one), but lots of things sucked big time. Here are eight reasons life is much better now than it's ever been.
Something about weddings really seems to bring out the brawler in people. Is it the decor? The vows to spend eternity together? Oh wait, call me crazy, but maybe it's the open bar?? Anyway, the latest wedding brouhaha sounds worse than a mixed martial arts cage fight. In Orchard Park, New York, over 100 people at a wedding got into a serious rumble after the bride and groom said their "I do"s. And it wasn't just some little spat either. A witness reportedly said that there was "blood everywhere."
Does anyone else consider it kind of ironic that Miley Cyrus is the twerking queen -- and yet she's got a butt flatter than a pancake run over by an 18-wheeler? Maybe this is why Miley needed a little -- okay, a LOT -- of padding in the derriere department while she twerked on stage in Mexico. Add in one of her dancers slapping that synthetic faux-Kardashianassss with a Mexican flag, and, well, Miley might end up grinding against the bars of her Mexican prison cell.
On tonight's Couples Therapy, a new couple joins the house, and it's one that is pretty unusual in that almost everyone in the house has already seen the female part of the couple naked. That would be porn star Jenna Jameson and her boyfriend, mixed martial arts coach John Wood. Even Juan Pablo Galavis seems to have caught a Jenna film or two -- much to the dismay of Nikki Ferrell.
