Dear Demi,

If Demi Moore and I were actually friends, I would write the following letter to her: Dear Demi, Let me just start by saying that Ashton is a jerk for what he did.  But, you don’t really think he cheated because you’re 49, do you? Seriously?  Ashton cheated because he has a problem, whatever it is.  Ok, maybe you did have problems in your marriage. Who doesn’t?  But, that’s not why he cheated.  People don’t cheat because of their marriage.  They cheat because of themselves. ...more

Who Are You Beyond Your Work?

I've been mulling this question over quite a bit in the last week. I was trying to figure out - what is that catchy post title that bridges the gap between the public tragedies like the death of Whitney Houston and our everyday lives? While I don't have a catchy title, I do believe the essence of all of this is simple, so I will ask you the question: Do you know what you have in common with Whitney, Amy Winehouse, Demi Moore, the millionaires in the NBA, or < fill in the blank of any public figure...>? You are human. They are human. ...more

Demi and Heather - the Saddest Stories

t’s been a busy couple of weeks in celebrity news, not the least of which is the hospitalizations of Demi Moore and Heather Locklear for alleged substance abuse. Two women, once huge stars, one on tv and one in film, one dark and sexy, one blonde and sunny. And, for me, two women exactly my age, who I looked at during my twenties as the opposite sides of the same coin of success in Hollywood ....more
Here you talk about two women that I have always envied. Well, at least I did many years ago. ...more

Did May and December Just Collide?

I’m reading this weekend that Demi Moore has asked Ashton Kutcher for a divorce after finding out he cheated with a young woman in a hot tub, or something like that.  Could this signal the death of that May-to-December fantasy we were all living vicariously through?  As an ‘older woman’, it just made me so darn proud of Demi when she caught the young, hunky guy....more

Ashton Kutcher Versus the Village Voice: Why Numbers and Language Matter in Social Causes

Last week closed with a violent feud between the Village Voice and Ashton Kutcher, who has joined the ranks of celebrity philanthropists. The Voice, which has been under attack for continuing to allow users to post ads advertising adult services, pointed out in their cover story last week that the numbers Kutcher uses to rally support for his foundation are grossly exaggerated, leading the star to retaliate by contacting its advertisers on Twitter accusing the publication of being a "Digital Brothel." It got ugly, but the Voice raised a good point. Here's a closer look. ...more
Thank you for the insight. I just wrote a little bit about Ashton Kutcher catching flack for his ...more

Hollywood's Gym-orexia

 Last week, I pawed through the newsstand, gathering as many issues as I could shove into my bag. To my dismay back at home, two of the four magazines that made the cut included pictures of Gwyneth Paltrow, promising to reveal how she got that "amazing" body. Inside the mags, I learned that she got this "miracle figure" by "never" letting up on her workouts. I also learned about the routine that had Cameron Diaz comparing her arms to those of her pilled up lover, A-Rod.    Now, let me show you what I was looking at:...more

Calling Out All Cougars!

Today’s Blog Post was sort of like a joint effort between myself and the yummy mummies at the local Second Cup Cafe. It all started with my girlfriend, who met me for a coffee after school drop off. “What are you writing about today?” she asked. “Not quite sure. Was thinking about Cougars. What do you think?” I replied. In no time, we had about 5 women there, all throwing ideas my way, me typing as quickly as I could. I know why I never go to that particular Cafe to write. It’s VERY distracting. But FUN!...more
