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!
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.
Something had clearly gone terribly wrong in the world of Andre Johnson. The rap star, who goes by Christ Bearer and is a protege of the iconic Wu-Tang Clan, was rushed to the hospital after severing his own penis, then jumping off the second-floor balcony of his apartment building. But that's not even the worst of it.
It's no wonder so many people are reluctant to get involved when they see something bad happening. The death of Donnie Reed is yet another cautionary tale for would-be good Samaritans. When the father of three saw a homeless man being harassed, he stepped up to help. What happened to him as a result is absolutely horrific.
