A former staff writer at People and Us Weekly, I have covered everything from hero pets to hurricanes to the secrets of celebrity slim-downs (which is basically avoiding carbs and anything else that you might actually enjoy eating). My work has also appeared in Essence and Self Magazine. Now an editor at The Stir, I spend my downtime hanging out with my hubby, toddler, and Shih Tzu in New York City. My other favorite pastime -- reality TV. I swear I've learned everything I need to know to survive this life from Snooki, Kim K, and NeNe Leakes.
A soy latte ... but on weekends, mama definitely needs a mimosa!
There are lots of things cell phone users worry about -- breaking the screen, spilling something on it, but most of all, losing it. Perhaps there is something even more serious to be concerned about. A Florida woman caught fire after she says a cell phone exploded at the gym. Not got extremely hot. Not started smoking. But EXPLODED!
We've all been horrified by courtoom footage of a killer who clearly has no remorse. They smile, laugh, act as though they don't care -- basically thumb their noses at the entire legal process and their victims. Well, one Michigan judge had enough of that attitude from one convicted killer and yelled an incredibly chilling threat her way. Was it inappropriate? Probably. But it was something I'm sure a lot of other people also wanted to say.
A true happy ending is rare in the world of reality TV dating shows, but one former star has bucked those odds. After her very public search for love on both The Bachelor and then The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas Stagliano has everything she always dreamed of and is showing it all off. She shared a new, absolutely adorable pic of her baby girl.
Oh Juan Pablo. Will you ever learn? It's as though his DNA is wired to piss off every woman on the planet. His latest transgression? He posted an Instagram pic of him with a seriously HOT woman that is NOT Nikki Ferrell. The photo alone would have been bad, but then he added a few choice, lustful words.
Here is a fact that the news makes clear every single day: some people just aren't meant to be mothers ... or rather good ones. The latest crazy story centers around Aubrey Coy, a mom who cops claim kidnapped her daughter during a supervised visitation. Then she did something so crazy, so reckless, you will totally understand why she probably didn't have custody in the first place.
