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.
The 66th Annual Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, saw some expected wins as well as some unexpected upsets. Who thought that Kathy Bates would win over Julia Roberts? Or that True Detective would triumph over stiff competition like Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and, well, every other show in the directing category? Or Benedict Cumberbatch over Mark Ruffalo? Here are the winners in the major categories.
The 66th Annual Emmy Awards In Memoriam segment was particularly touching this year. There is no doubt that 2014 saw an enormous amount of talent pass on. The most unexpected, however, was Robin Williams. The surreally talented comedian and actor committed suicide this year and the world was shocked and saddened. Billy Crystal, who headed up Comic Relief with Robin and Whoopi Goldberg, and who was friends with Robin for 20 years, paid tribute to his pal and inspiration.
Bruce Jenner is rumored to be harboring a major secret under his pants -- and it's not that he turned into a woman, though this isn't that far off from that. It's that apparently the former Olympic champ wears Spanx! A source told OK! magazine that Bruce, who has sparked rumors that he's transforming into a woman, wears the Spanx because he's embarrassed by his belly -- NOT because he wants to wear woman's undies. Um, okay, Bruce. If you say so.
Kim Kardashian and younger sisters Kendall and Kylie have sparked outrage after the trio were caught on camera apparently texting during a moment of silence for Michael Brown at the VMAs. When rapper Common asked the audience to take a moment and think about Brown and racial injustice, Kim and her sisters appeared to take the moment of silence as their cue to update their Instagram pages.
