Kate Plus 8: Add to the list of why Kate Gosselin disgusts me

Posted on in Entertainment | 1 comment

Last night, my husband and I caught the tail end of the Kate Plus 8 show, the one where she brings some of her children to a race track. I’m not sure where they were, I didn’t catch the whole thing. It shows her children squealing in delight as they watch from the center podium […]

Posted on in Entertainment | 0 comments

There’s extended breastfeeding and then there’s e-x-t-e-n-d-e-d breastfeeding. Last night on episode 5 of the HBO show Game of Thrones, which is a period show based in the middle ages, one character, Lysa Arryn, has a scene where she’s breastfeeding her son which has sent the Internets all a flutter. If you don’t watch the […]

Celebrity moms who look great over 40

As cliche as it is, we keep hearing how 40 is the new 30 and 50 is the new 40 yada, yada. At 41 years of age myself, I stuck a proverbial fork in my uterus and called it a day 8 years ago, after my second son was born. One chapter done, turn the […]

When Roman Polanski dies, he will not be known for his brilliant films like Rosemary’s Baby or The Pianist. He will be known as a sexual predator who used his riches and fame to escape the hand of the law. Yes. It is a shame that such a brilliant talent will go down like that. […]

Jon – Kate = Still Annoying as He#$

I have a confession to make. I am not a rabid watcher of Jon and Kate + 8. I know, it’s amazing I can even hold my head up in polite society. I don’t know how I make it through the day, so bereft am I of hot conversational topics such as “is she or […]

I had so much fun live blogging the Jon & Kate Season 4 finale that I thought I would do it again and add my commentary to the much anticipated Season 5 premiere when JON AND KATE FACE EACH OTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME! Dun-dun-DUNNNN! Although I have a feeling Kate has had a teensy […]

Zac Efron, Disney’s new tweeny-bopper idol, heart-throb and meal ticket is working hard plugging his new movie with Mathew Perry, 17 Again, which comes out this Friday.

Sing it with me, “I’m on my way. Just set me freeeeyeee. Home sweet hooooooome.” Why am I singing this? Well, it’s this seasons goodbye song on American Idol. This pleased Prescott to no end. He is a closet hair band fan [Ed. note: not closeted, I freely admit my obsession] and thought this was […]

Belly up to the Bar?

This has been the second toughest week of my life. The relationship that I thought was going to last forever has fallen apart, largely at my own hands. Friends and family are taking sides. Stuff is being divided. Schedules are being drawn up. Lawyers and therapists and judges, oh my! Mommy needs a drink. And […]

The folks over at Cognitive Daily have posted an article featuring yet another batch of studies that tell us that kids under two shouldn’t be watching TV. The studies they cite show that toddlers who are given clues to find hidden objects via TV are less successful at finding the objects than the children who […]
