Michele Zipp


I'm a high heel wearing writer, magician, sleuth, and twin mama with tattoos. My not-so-secret past includes doing time as the Editor of Playgirl magazine. I get personal on Mommy With Tattoos and mouthy at Daily Momtra. I'm obsessed with taking naps, 70s vintage, chocolate chip cookies, reality TV, and Mexican food (not too spicy, please).

    Date nights mean different things for different couples. Often, though, they tend to contain dinner out, maybe some wine, a movie, perhaps dancing. That's not Reese Witherspoon's kind of date night though.

    Reese and husband Jim Toth incorporate paper, pencils, rulers, and I'd guess some erasers as well. They are the anti-date night date-nighters.

    We've all got our own theories and thoughts regarding the conscious uncoupling of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. And then there's the little fact that Chris is now dating Jennifer Lawrence. Plus, there's that incident where Gwyneth got slammed by the Queen Martha Stewart. It's tough times for Paltrow, but she has somehow managed to stay cool and calm, in true Gwyneth form. And now she's been spotted back together with Chris.

    It's not that kind of back together, but the couple-not-couple had a nice family dinner with the kids. That's something I think all broken up couples with kids should do every once in a while. Even though it can be a difficult thing to do.

    When people have a lot of money, they spend a lot of money. I get that. Well, I try to understand that at least. But I still feel that certain things shouldn't cost certain prices. For example, a shoebox-sized studio apartment should never cost $2000 a month, but there are places where this is the norm. And we (sort of) accept it and move on with our business focusing on clipping coupons and pinching pennies so we can afford our lifestyles whatever they may be. But then I hear of Paris Hilton purchasing a puppy for $13,000 and my brain nearly short-circuits.

    It's an adorable Pomeranian. But why does cuteness cost $13,000? That puppy better poop diamonds. And he might. He's already being pampered, of course.

    Okay Kourtney Kardashian. We get it. You love flaunting your baby bump. I'll admit that I love it, too. In my opinion, a pregnant woman can be one of the most beautiful beings we will ever see. So when Kourtney steps out in style, I feel inspired. Not to get pregnant (I have twins and and very content with just two for the moment), but to dress in way that makes me feel beautiful ... however that may be.

    For Kourt, it means wearing a skintight and short dress and not letting being pregnant stop her. Check her out wearing one of the best maternity little black dresses I ever did see.

    Season 19 of Dancing With the Stars starts in two days and the excitement is about an unbearable as the fact that Maks Chmerkovskiy will not be returning since he retired after that dazzling win and season with Meryl Davis. We can at least be happy that we have Julianne Hough back, though this time as a judge.

    We already know that Karina Smirnoff isn't happy about this decision for the pro and sister of Derek to judge since her brother will be competing. He is however dancing with some You Tube star named Bethany Mota. Never heard of her either, so I think he's at a disadvantage purely based on that. Julianne, however, has some harsh words for her bro.
