Oh, I'm sorry, Kyle Smith, did the Golden Globes get your panties in a bunch?...more

Let's Get Social During The Golden Globes!

I'm thinking a virtual party may be the best way to throw a party! No invites, no noshows, no cleaning up, no wondering if you're going to run out of liqueur or food, no need to put a new LBD (little black dress) on your already overloaded credit card bill....more

I Have No Idea Who Was Snubbed Because Motherhood Doesn't Stop for the Golden Globes

There was a time in my life when I woke early in the morning in anticipation of the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations and, once they were out, I would study the list carefully and decide if I agreed that So and So's performance in Such and Such was really worthy of a nomination and then complain when my favorites were snubbed and then spend some time with friends asking why my favorites were always ignored. I'd keep myself warm with a little nomination outrage and then get on with the day. ...more
It's a very sad, true statement about motherhood.more

Classic Beauty on the Red Carpet: Adele

This awards season you are getting to see even more of Adele. Normally you would only see her at the Grammys or Billboard Music Awards, but thanks to her killer pipes and James Bond, she is making appearances at the Golden Globes and the Oscars. While her look is pretty tame compared to the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, Adele knows how to knock 'em dead with a few little details. Some fashionistas out there feel that she is playing it "too safe," but I like to look at as her knowing what works for her, and what doesn't. ...more

Thank You Jodie

On the night of the Golden Globe Awards I watched the news as my husband cooked lemon garlic pork chops and mustard greens. Our plan was a quiet dinner. We had no intention of watching the awards show; it’s really not our thing. But during a commercial break from the news, I caught a glimpse of the red carpet interviews....more

Why I Don't Judge Jodie Foster. Well, Yeah, I Do.

Jodie Foster came out during her Golden Globe speech last night.Twitter and Facebook exploded as the LGBTQ community dissected her every word, gesture and the fact that it took her 50 years (well, say 30.) The straight community pretty much said "what the hell is she talking about?" and/or "wait, Jodie Foster wasn't out yet?"There's no "right" way for a celebrtiy to come out. A rambling speech on live television is one approach. An obituary like Sally Ride is another. People Magazine. 60 Minutes. Barbara Walters. New York Times. Sometimes we cheer, sometimes we jeer. ...more
