Why The Fashion Police Should Never Apologize

Why The Fashion Police Should Never Apologize
Let me preface the opinion that is about to follow with this: I make fun of what I don’t understand. So does The Fashion Police. Hollywood is so goddamned self-absorbed – I find a show making fun of them refreshing. I am also a “call-it-like-I-see-it” kinda gal; Joan Rivers had me at “Can We Talk”.... Read more »

Top Nine Reasons Governor Quinn Needs to Concede

Top Nine Reasons Governor Quinn Needs to Concede
  Last night I poured myself a diet coke and munched on a bag of chips waiting to hear the last mind-numbing speech the current governor had to offer. I went to bed disappointed.

Suck It, Cancer.  It's Donna Day!
I remember the night I “met” Mary Tyler Mom and her daughter, Donna.  It was April 8, 2011.  My forty-fifth birthday.

CPS Strike: I'm Just Going To Go Ahead And Say What You Are Probably Thinking

Karen is the president of the Chicago Teacher Union.  Once the contract is ratified and the teachers get the raise they want they should do two things.  One...find a new rep.  And two...chip in an buy Ms. Lewis a brassiere as a parting gift.  Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and sadly, books are still judged by their covers.  If this is the face of the CTU...it needs an overhaul along with an attitude adjustment.
What we are witnessing here is a pissing match, you know? Oh, sure it is a circus…no doubt in my mind. But there is a side show going on at the big top. And it is a pissing match. Karen Lewis meet Rahm Emanuel. Rahm, let me introduce you to Karen. FYI…take a good look... Read more »

Every couple needs to have this conversation. Seriously. Long before your face is plastered all over a breaking news story regarding your disappearance.  And way, way before Rob Lowe signs on to play your husband/alleged killer in a sappy made-for-tv-movie for Lifetime. Make sure you utter these words before there is a murder trial that your once-beloved... Read more »
