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.
Everyone loves Ryan Gosling. Right? What's there not to love? The hangdog eyes. The soulful expression. The hot bod. But apparently after screenings of Ryan's new movie Only God Forgives, there is a flat-out Ryan Gosling haterparade going on. Critics are pounding on this movie like a starving monkey pounds on a coconut. The Gos plays a drug-smuggler who runs a boxing club in Thailand. Gos! Shirtless! Sounds good so far. Buuuuut that's about as good as it gets. The reviews seem to be universally bad, and the screening in Cannes was booed. Listen to this review -- it's the worst movie review you'll ever read in your entire life.
A mother of two is being hailed as a hero after confronting one of the men who allegedly viciously butchered a young British soldier in broad daylight on the streets of London. The woman happened to be inside of a bus that stopped in front of the scene and seeing a man on the ground, she got out to see what she could do to help. Ingrid Loyau-Kennett is a former teacher and Brownie leader who knows first aid. At first, it looked like a car accident, as the soldier was crumpled near a smashed car. But it quickly became apparent that there was something much more sinister going on.
Two elementary school children were best friends in life, each the other's greatest comfort, and in death, it was no different. The two 9-year-old girls perished together in Plaza Towers, one of the schools razed by the devastating tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. The girls were "inseparable" in life, and at the end, it appears they clung to each other. Says the mom of one of the girls: "We take some comfort in thinking that she and Emily were holding onto each other and not alone."
One man thought his house was haunted -- but it turned out his relationship was. The man, who lives in Tasmania, Australia, set up a videocamera to catch spirits, but he instead caught flesh. Lots of it. Believing he had ghosts in his kitchen, the man decided to try to film the apparitions, but then forgot to turn the camera off. What he ended up catching on camera did give him quite a fright though -- it was the sight of his long-term girlfriend, who is the mother of his young child, having sex ... with his 16-year-old son. Boo!
