The Anti-Hoarder

I’ve been getting rather anxious lately as the holidays are upon us and I know what that means. No, not eating too much, more STUFF will be coming into my house. I’m constantly cleaning OUT my house. I’m a regular...

Brad and Brad

Cr*p. They’ve sucked me in again with this whole Brad Repeat Womack Bachelor performance. Why they would choose Snoremack again is really a mystery. Or is it? Since he awkwardly declined to choose a gal in his first spin in...

I Had An Affair With Tiger

O.k. not true; he called but I never returned his call. Here we go again. Another famous, rich, talented person 'apologizing' for his actions. This requires me to climb back up onto my soapbox to complain, bitch and ridicule. So,...

More to Love

Less than two months after my last confession, I'm at it again. This time is a little different however. Tonight is the two hour finale of More to Love....

The Bachelorette

Apparently I am a broken record. I repeatedly say I'm not going to watch The Bachelor or The Bachelorette EVER AGAIN! And then I watch it again, only to be disappointed. Actually, I'm not exactly sure what would make...

The Bachelor

After every season of The Bachelor, I swear I'm never watching it again. Then, I watch it again. So, here we are with just a few short hours to go until 'The most dramatic rose ceremony ever' will finally give...

True Beauty?

Oh, I just hate when a new reality show comes on that I happen to catch and like. Then I must covertly watch it like a lurking, creepy stalker. I watched True Beauty the other night and now I’m going...

David Duchovney

Riiight. David Duchoveny has an addiction and has safely run to rehab in order to heal himself. So, breaking it down, David: a. Cheated and got caught b. Cheated and knows he's going to get caught c. Loves porn a...

TIM RUSSERT

I'm kind of in mourning. I LOVED Tim Russert and am sad he is gone. Died today after collapsing from what appears to be a heart attack. He was NBC's Washington Bureau Chief though many people knew him best as...

Restaurant Review: BESS

My husband and I along with another couple were out in downtown Austin last night (no, really) and decided (after walking past 106+ options of which we couldn’t agree) to go to Bess for dinner. Bess is Sandra Bullock’s restaurant...

Ambition

I used to have ambition. After doing well in highschool and college, I went to work for a company where I worked very, very hard and was rewarded nicely. Raises, promotions, you name it. Deciding it was time to further...

Pam Anderson

Please make Pam stop getting married and divorced. With her three or so weddings (and subsequent divorces) to Kid Rock and her latest to Rick Salomon all within a rolling twelve month period, one might wonder what’s going on with...

After The Final Wilted Rose

Well, well, well. Brad. 25 women and you just couldn’t find even one to continue dating. You didn’t have to propose of course. But to leave that lovely red rose just sitting on the podium? I want the many, many...

Back To Reality

Ah, back to some real fun. Reality shows. As I’ve admitted before, I do love reality shows. One in particular seems to just kill me every time I watch it. I literally weep like a schoolgirl dumped by her acne...

Rehab - The New Investment Opportunity

Rehab. What exactly is it and how can I get in on it? Now, I don’t mean to make too much fun of this (of course I do) but don’t you think there is a lucrative career or say, financial...

Three Is The New Two - I Hear

Julia Roberts to have a third child. If it's a girl, I wonder if she too will name her Julia. Pretty cool name. Just wondering....

What Next?

O.k. so Seattle had the most rain in about a million years in November. A record rain month for Seattle is saying quite a bit. Then, snow and ice struck a couple of weeks back; making us unable to drive...

Reality Shows - I Need Guilty Pleasure!

I’ve been a bit preoccupied this past week or so with getting my son to preschool, packing the perfect lunch and driving the teachers nuts with my questions. I finally realized what was missing in MY life. Reality shows! Only...

Another One Bites The Dust - Sigh

Once again, turnstile Hollywood marriages. Not long ago, I wrote about Hollywood Marriage Odds and now, another one bit it. Actress Kate Hudson and her rocker hubby-unit split. Not exactly earth shattering as I wasn’t super sure that one...

Poor Peter Cook

Huh. So 47 year-old Peter Cook is SORRY. How sweet. For those who don't know who I'm referring to - Christie Brinkley's cheating husband. Maybe we should all feel sorry for him. He’s “contrite, “sorry” and “stupid”. According to him...

“I’m Comfortable In My Own Skin”. Please stop saying that

How many times do we have to hear that line from various celebs? It's really quite a creepy saying when you think about it. And OVERUSED. The latest is Ashlee Simpson. Yeah Ash, now you got your new nose, lost...

Jul. 18, 2006

Hollywood Marriage Odds - well, sort of.

Turnstile marriages. Pam Anderson and Kid Rock to marry while Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro to divorce. I used to get excited when celebs got married (especially Jen and Brad – I thought they were the sh_t and would...

Trump's Imported "Apprentice"

Yes, this hottie Brit won Apprentice last night and I couldn't be happier! It appears he was the overwhelming favorite from Trump's statement about America's on-line and text voting results. And don't think I didn't participate in that because...

Survivor

Well, now that we’re settled home from our Arizona trip, it’s time to get back to some more fun topics. I have several I want to chat about but let's start with SURVIVOR! Now, I love this show though...

Charlie Sheen - Yeah, like I believe HIM

Good Lord. For those of you Charlie Sheen fans, you may not want to read further. He will be bashed for the moron he is. From E! Online: News - In a 17-page court declaration, filed Friday in Los...

Aniston: Wedding Rumor "So Unbelievable"

From Yahoo News: Ah...back to some fun. Yesterday's Oprah had Jennifer Aniston call in to clear up some of the rumors eg. that she is not marrying Vince and that she is not looking for a home in Chicago...

No Cable. Bad Timing

This last week has caused Lucky Mom (o.k. me) to re-think my self-proclaimed title. Maybe ‘Sorta-Lucky Mom’ or ‘Usually-Lucky Mom’ or even ‘Just-Not-Right-Now-But-Again-Soon-Let’s Hope-Lucky Mom’. Alec continued to get better and is now feeling great. Daddy; however, got Alec’s Rotavirus...
