Fart jokes on WLS Radio- I rest my case...

Yesterday, I wrote about my frustrations with the demise of talk radio in Chicago- that no women are hosting shows on the top rated talk stations in this city.  I received tons of emails in support from upset females around town agreeing with me.  "Women are thirsty for content that makes a difference and not monologues about Tiger Wood's mistresses or fart jokes," I said.

Then as if on cue- I was driving home from the city yesterday and I heard 23 minutes of talk about farts on WLS.

"Avatar" is spiritual, dammit!

We've all heard the debate- people with too much spare time are trying to find faults with the theme of Avatar.  So I had to check it out for myself and see what all the hype was about.

Dear Oprah and Xm Radio: Your subscribers deserve a refund

I am just curious- but does Oprah Winfrey listen to her own radio station?  If she does, how can a woman with such high standards for television and her magazine possibly be okay with the train wreck that has become XM 156?  For a woman who is known for "walking her talk"- I think the message boards on Oprah.com tell a very different story.

Robin Meade's new book is a page turner

If you're a fan of HLN, then you already are familiar with the greeting, "Good mornin' sunshine!"  This is Robin Meade's token line as she informs us of the day's news and views for Morning Express.  It's hard to imagine Robin having a bad day- but did you know she's suffered from self esteem issues?  And now- she wants to help us all feel good from the inside out.

Oprah is spiritual, dammit!

When it comes to being a spiritual warrior- we all know Oprah is a pioneer.  Her word is... well- all powerful.  (Who else could get permission to shut down Michigan Avenue??)  And as her new season gets under way in a few days, I'm hoping that in addition to interviews with folks like Whitney Houston, Oprah will continue to push the "woo-woo" envelope.

Miss Universe might be fixed?? Say it isn't SO!

I got sent a link today for an interview with the Miss Universe choreographer Michael Schwandt.  In this interview, he reveals...(wait for it....wait for it....) that The Miss Universe Pageant isn't necessarily following the rules when it comes to picking a winner.  

Well- knock me over with a feather!

Evanston native goes Hollywood

Eighth Annual AFI Awards - ArrivalsI don't usually get star struck.  It's just not part of my wiring.  But there is one actor who hails from Evanston that seems to make me speechless, and I wish there was something I could do about it.

I am at the Sacramento airport waiting for my flight back to Chicago and I just went to the newsstand to get some reading material.  What did I buy?  What everyone else did...smut!Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in Melbourne, Australia
