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.
Who knew Kendall Jenner was into making horror films? For that is what this short video appears to be -- and I'm not even talking about "Sk8er Boi" blasted on the car's sound system. (Though that certainly turns up the ACK!!! factor.) No, I'm talking about Kendall dancing, singing, gyrating, and turning her eyes from the road about a bajillion times.
Fiiiiinaaaallllyyyyyy!!! The Fifty Shades of Grey trailerwas released and OMIGAWD. We finally get our first look at Anastasia and Christian. Not to mention the Red Room of Pain and Charlie Tango. But nothing about the books, nor the movie's casting, nor the trailer has ever gone smoothly. Fans are always divided. And the trailer is no different. For some ... it's everything they wanted and more. For others ... not so much.
Count me in the latter category. I admit I'm not a fan of the books; however, I was sort of looking forward to the movie, primarily because I know I'll be forced to go see it (thanks, coworkers!) and I'd prefer to be entertained for two hours rather than bored silly -- or trying to stifle my laughter. But alas. The trailer promised more of the bored/laughing experience than the entertained one. Here are nine things about the Fifty trailer that made me, well, GAG.
You don't hear celebrities outright trashing each other too much. I mean A-listers, not the reality TV kind. There are good reasons for that. Hollywood is a town that runs on connections and "friendships." You never know where your next job is coming from -- and it's not a good idea to piss off anyone, no matter how much they might deserve it. So it's jaw-droppingly surprising to hear how Freddie Prinze Jr. clobbered his former 24 costar Kiefer Sutherland.
It's always a bummer when you buy a house and it turns out to be not the house you thought it was. Like the foundation is cracking, the plumbing pipes are rotting -- and, oh yeah, the ghosts are totally bugging out! Such is apparently the problem with a home in Hanover, Pennsylvania. DeAnna Simpson and her husband bought the home seven years ago and put every penny they had into it. But they probably should have waited awhile to do that -- because it wasn't long after they moved in that spirits began roiling, churning, and actually attacking them. And some of it is caught on video.
If you get caught shoplifting, it's not too surprising that you might want to make a run for it. Unless, that is, you make a run for it -- and leave your two young kids behind. That's what police say Florida mom Rebecca Stoltz did when security caught her pilfering $44 worth of Walmart clothing -- she booked out of the store, apparently forgetting (or not?) thather two young daughters were still in the aisles.
