When TV "investigative journalism" is done well, the public becomes educated, important issues receive attention... and someone wins an Emmy award. When it's done poorly, it seems, the story could end up on ABC's weekly news program, 20/20.
I had a chance to do a quick interview with Ursie on the red carpet and it was a blast! She talked about which hair stylists she admires, who she'd like to get her hands on next, and what inspiration she took from Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model when planning her new salon.
Maybe it is just the out-size publicity granted success stories like Beyonce and Jay-Z and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who are choice morsels for the tabloids and the Internet gossip press to seize on.
Until Rachel Zoe, I had never witnessed someone having a true peak experience over clothes and accessories. Characterized by overwhelming joy, rapture, and oneness with the universe, peak experiences are the aha moments of life.
Once upon a time, Hollywood stars were worshipped like gods and goddesses. No photographers were trying to snap pants-less crotch shots as someone stepped from a car. Nor were they terrorizing people in traffic and threatening the lives of innocent bystanders with their self-aggrandizing stunts.
Ladies, there is room for all of us. Some use their looks, some use their connections, some their brains, some their talents. It's a tough world out there. We're being told to 'lean forward' to 'lean back.' It gets so confusing! "Can't we all just get along?"
Charlize Theron, while incredibly beautiful with long hair, was heart-stoppingly gorgeous with her grown out pixie. The absence of volume around her face helped you see just exactly what makes her so captivating.
On this week's show, I starts things off with an exclusive interview with actor Jim Sturgess about his new film U...
For the world to be a better place for women -- and also, by the way, for men, and for young people -- it will need to become a place where the main thrust of our work and our pleasure is conceived not as an act of plunder, but of something else.
"My argument in favor of educating girls is more practical. We should do it because it is an incredibly powerful tool for ending global poverty."
I don't understand America's obsession with nipples. Anne Hathaway, winner of the Oscar for Actress in a Supporting Role, gave the performance of a lifetime in 'Les Misérables.' You would think the next day's headline would be about her incredible talent. Instead, the headline is about how her nipples showed in her dress. Seriously.
For some reason A backlash against the newly minted Oscar winner has begun, and I'd like to turn that around. In this edition of Weeklings!, I use logic and gay tricks to teach you to love Anne Hathaway again. We are mere serfs of Genovia, and we are in need of a princess!
The Onion arguably took the fall for our national misogyny. Maybe they really are the satire we need, rather than the kind we think want.
I'm genuinely trying to figure this out. We're supposed to hate Anne Hathaway, but love Jennifer Lawrence. I guess peppy is out, and awk is in.
The Oscar acceptance speech is the opportunity for recipients to be remembered not just for the work they did, but also for what they graciously said about winning.
It's very nice that Oscars made a special tribute to movie musicals. The only problem is that not a single one of the musicals honored (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Les Miz) was ever eligible for Oscar's own category of "Best Original Musical."
