Rielle Hunter gives spiritual warriors a bad name

I was driving home from work yesterday and I got an email from someone telling me I had to watch the Oprah interview with Rielle Hunter- John Edward's mistress.  

"She says she's spiritual- but really- she's so full of it!"  The email said.

So I watched the re-run at 11pm last night.  I still feel sick to my stomach.

Don't take it personally!!

So I recently put in my facebook status, "If I have so many friends, why have only 127 people read my blog in the last few days?"  I was kind of amazed at the message I received from one of them, accusing me of being a "one-sided" friend.

"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.

Three words for Brit Hume: Shut your yap!

Incase you missed it- the Fox News analyst Brit Hume has put his uptight nose where it doesn't belong.  This time- he's telling Tiger Woods to embrace Christianity.

Three things you need to know this holiday season

If you want to be spiritual for the holidays, I have a couple of ground rules...  They're pretty simple and I've already seen several people I know and love break them.  Of course, in my attempt not to judge for the month of December, I am torn whether or not to share... but for now, I will say this is guidance...and not judgment..  (You buying this?  Cuz I'm not sure that I am..)

More judgments

Trying to go through my day still without judging- and I got all rattled after getting a note from a friend.  She was ripping on a friend of mine and I got this sick feeling in my stomach.  Why do some people have to think they are better than others?

The Ghost of Michael Jackson on Larry King Live?

There's a lot of talk that Michael Jackson is haunting "Neverland".  But the video that is circulating from an interview on CNN is definitely not ghostly...

Flu death numbers exaggerated by Center for Disease Control

So why is the "spiritual" lady writing about flu shots again?  Many people on a spiritual path are choosing NOT to vaccinate their children or themselves because of mounting research that it does more harm than good.  Here's some more evidence to get that pot stirred up...Free Pictures | acobox.com

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.

Don't bitch when it's free

I had the pleasure of meeting many Chicagonow.com readers yesterday at Blogapalooza.  But I have to ask- is it spiritual to complain about the free spread?

Anchor drops f-bomb on the air

One of the greatest things about live television is that....well...it's LIVE.  There is no seven second delay like you have in radio.  So if someone drops an f-bomb on the air, then thousands of people will hear it.  I doubt it's ever happened to pro such as Diane Sawyer, but for an anchor man from Fox 5 in New York- he's got some explaining to do...The Friars Club Roast Of Matt Lauer

Who's the real "jackass"?!

Kanye West unabashedly drinking a bottle of Hennessy on the red carpet while girlfriend Amber Rose posed for photos - is this the cause of his outburst at the VMAs? So President Obama is in hot water because he made an off the record comment about Kanye West.  While the President should know that anything he says can and probably will be broadcast to the masses, the person we should all be ashamed of is the one who did the tattling. (Or should I say, "tweeting".)

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.

Miss Universe is misguided

If you've ever wondered if the Miss Universe pageant system is really as damaging as it seems- the answer is....absolutely YES.  How do I know?  I am a survivor of the Miss Illinois Pageant....and I rarely admit this to people because the whole thing was an insult to my intelligence.
