It seems Paula Adbul once again lost in the fashion category.  When will this idol judge who seems to take a triple dose of Tylenol PM before every show get it right?  Her latest get up was a cross between Michael Jackson and Captain Jack Sparrow. Lindsay Lohan is scared.  She is unemployed.  I am...

My daughter is sixteen and loves me and hates me at the same time.  I only know this is possible because I feel the same way towards her. Maybe hate is a strong word. Lets use the word, dislike.  As much as I try and hide my exasperation, anger, and perplexed attitude towards her at times it comes...

My girlfriend text me the other day asking me if I thought a person can be in love with two people at the same time.  As you could imagine  the texts were long and too many to count. You ask why didn't you pick up the phone? My friend was training a client, so there was three women involved in the...

Nicole Richie has selected boho-chicness as her maternity style for baby number two.  If you or I chose this same style it would be called mumu frocks from Hilo Hattie's of Hawaii. In the Who Wore It Best column Jennifer Aniston once again out rocked her competition in a wonderful menswear chic...

Just imagine if you are standing in a Post Office that you have been going to for twenty years to pick up your mail, and all of a sudden your throat is slit by a complete stranger.  That happened in Clayton, CA recently. One minute a father, husband and grandfather is going through his mail and the...

I had a dream last night.  I woke up feeling happy and content. I decided I must ponder this dream all day before I write about it.  Sometimes when I write too quickly, when thoughts or ideas come to my head, I babble and I have no direction in my writing. I went to bed last night a bit disturbed...

Do you really believe you can push your child to succeed if he or she doesn't want to? I am here to tell you, you can't. We don't give enough credit to a child's will and his or her thoughts. A great deal of a childs personality is already in place before he or she can ever says her first word. I...

It seems Jim Carrey enjoyed some time with Jenny McCarthy's son, Evan, on a beach in Malibu, March 8.  Josh Hartnett got a warning ticket for speeding in Beverly Hills March 4.  He was apparently driving a BMW 5 Series.  What? Why such a normal BMW? Amy Winehouse was spotted buying candy in Barnet...

Your dad never told you that girls can outwit, outsmart and outplay you. He told that to you for a good reason. He wanted you to learn these lessons on your own just as he did, because his father never told him that girls can manipulate like nobody's business. Men more than women seem to be taken...

Let me start out by saying People Magazine has some meat to it. I don't meat recipes for bleu cheese hamburgers, I mean some great touching stories mixed in with news on the wacky and weird celebrity world.  Here we go. It seems the movie, Watchmen, is not worth watching. Leah Rozen, the reviewer...

I had never thought about getting a tattoo. I looked at tattoos with prejudice and a snotty attitude that I couldn't blow away. Don't ask me why, I don't know why. At some point my subconscious decided only ones less fortunate than I had tattoos. But wait a minute, whom could be less fortunate than...

After browsing my daughter's US magazine and People magazine for a few months now, and feeling totally repulsed as I read 90% of the material, I have decided I will save you the cost of the two magazines weekly and give you an update on the rich and mostly ridiculous every Wednesday. We will start...

Being betrayed by your best friend is essentially the same feeling you have when you lose a best friend through death in a tragic accident. I know, I have experienced both, and both times my world was rocked. I felt as if an 8.0 earthquake had hit, only the tremors didn't stop a few days later,...

I picked my son up from his baseball practice yesterday.  I had sat there and watched his practice for a bit seething inside.  My son had gotten the very short end of the stick this baseball season due to little league politics and fathers coaching sons to make sure they make a team.  I read a...

At what point in a woman's life is her self-esteem and self-respect so damaged that as an adult, or even a teen, her self-worth is so far in the gutter, and heading fast to the drain, that she can be physically and mentally abused and go back to her abuser? Rihanna has proven that this is not a...
