I am a writer and occasional editor. My work has appeared in Better Homes & Gardens, First for Women, Woman's World, AOL, YourTango, and various other publications. Interests include holistic health and fitness, reading, pop culture, jewelry, summer, and cooking with lots of veggie and spices. I've lived in Chicago, Boston, London, L.A. and Manhattan and now reside in north NJ with my Jersey boy fiance. In our free time, we frequent BYOB spots, buy overpriced produce (but it's so pretty!) at Whole Foods and do bizarrely huge loads of laundry.

Even though Joan told Peggy last week, "Everything keeps changing out here, but everything's the same in there," all of the characters on Mad Men have had to face major changes in 1968. One of the biggest, undeniably, has to be the merger between Sterling Draper Cooper Pryce and Cutler Gleason and Chaough. In just the matter of several episodes, the man we knew mostly just as Don's arch rival and Peggy's new boss, Ted Chaough, has gone from a minor annoyance and SDCP competitor to a main character in season 6. Not just that -- he's Don's full-on foil!
That said, I wouldn't be surprised if the actor who plays Ted, Kevin Rahm, has more than a little insight into the rest of season 6. Here, intriguing details he recently spilled to Vulture.com that seem to offer major clues about what's in store for Draper, Chaough, & Co. in the coming weeks ...
Just when we thought we had as-close-as-you-can-get to official Fifty Shades of Grey movie news, thinking that Price & Prejudice and Atonement director Joe Wright would most likely be getting the director gig on the film, Deadline is reporting that it was all a big fat premature LIE! Okay, not exactly. Apparently Wright was a likely candidate to direct, but it wasn't a sure thing as everyone seemed to think. And now he's reportedly had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict.
Still, the site reports that the "script by Kelly Marcel is in" (whoo hoo!), and "there’s no question that Focus, Universal, and producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti are beginning the search for a director." However, insiders warn the process has just begun. But even with Wright out of the running, there's still a short list of potentials floating around ...
When four horrifying videos, featuring a middle-aged mansexually assaulting a young girl believed to be between 7 and 9 years old, hit the Internet on May 2, Danish police who discovered the clips contacted U.S. authorities. They knew the videos were taken in April, but they couldn't be sure in what country they were filmed. Until they spotted a seemingly innocuous detail in the background: A pretzel bag!
Authorities say they believe the acts were committed here in the States, because a Frito-Lay Rold Gold bag of thin pretzels appears in the videos, and that particular packaging is made only in the U.S. Canada's pretzels have different packaging and French language descriptions. Crazy, huh?
Another day, another Bachelor rumor involving the impending DOOM facing Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's engagement. This time, Star magazine is trying to convince us that, despite claiming to be “bursting with excitement” over their future "I do"s, Catherine is eyeing another man ... Wait, not just that! She was actually caught with another man at a party at the Palazzo apartment complex in L.A. earlier this month.
An "insider" claims that Catherine was "rubbing [Dancing With the Stars pro] Julz [Tocker]'s arm, whispering in his ear, and giggling." Say it isn't so!
It was innocent at first. You didn't mean to become as infatuated as you did. But you couldn't help it. And now, you've just got to admit it -- you've come down with a seriously unshakable case ofFifty Shades of Grey fever. That's okay -- you're not alone!
There are people who've read Fifty Shades of Grey, and then there are Fifty Shades of Grey fans who mean business. They're captivated -- either because their sex lives have thrived thanks to the book, they can't wait to see the film cast, and/or they just can't get enough of Ana and Christian. No matter the reason, there's no shame. Here, 12 ways to know if you're a hardcore Fifty Shades fan ...
