If we can tell anything by American baby name trends, it is that pop culture (or lack thereof) influences parents throughout the U.S. The same goes for the reverse: when you're out, so is your name.
Let's celebrate love and marriage for what it can be. Let's understand there are many different types of love to be experienced before you feel you've reached the ultimate love in your life. Forever can be a beautiful thing.
I'm not here to bring up Gwyneth Paltrow's latest food stamp challenge... That is so yesterday's news. Instead, I'm going to go even further back and discuss something that is so a year ago's news. You guessed it: I am bringing "conscious uncoupling" back!
I ran across Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley on HBO last night. It was late and had been a long day. I figured I'd watch a few minutes, wind down, then hit the sack. Of course, I couldn't take my eyes off it for the duration.
I don't believe any single week of living on a cramped budget alone gives any more than the briefest of glimpses into the reality of poverty, for Gwyneth, or any of the rest of us. Poverty is more than a number on a receipt or a row of vegetables in a photo.
This country does not need another celebrity to tell us how life is for "these people." These people are all around us and they are hungry. We need to have some compassion, stop hating the poor and try to understand them.
All New Yorkers know that leaving town often is one of the only things that ostensibly keeps us sane--a head scratcher that in and of itself might set off a light bulb for anyone who hadn't already lost it.
Men love to strike bold poses. Pants constrict that. That time Angelina Jolie stuck her leg out of her dress, like a kickstand, I said, "Wow, there's someone in charge." I'd be a more effective leader if I could confidently pop my legs two feet apart to begin a business meeting.
Just as we turn to celebrities for new trends to name our children, we also look toward them to see what outrageous names they have picked this time around. From Apple to Zahara, Mallory Moss presents the best and worst celebrity baby names of all time.
I'm really sorry to be the one to break it to you, but if you are married and it's Valentine's Day there's almost nothing you can do to win it. I don'...
My senior year of high school was charmed. I was voted senior class president, most popular girl and Homecoming queen. It was obvious I was destined f...
Gwyneth Paltrow has something else for us ladies to do so as to give our vaginas that youthful glow. Steam clean it baby! Shit, I just got through ...
There's more happening here, and it comes down to the fact that Paltrow's a woman. How often do we see male celebrities, or men in general, tasked for the stuff-- whether vain or frivolous or "too indulgent"-- they spend their money on?
What does day-to-night look like for "ordinary" moms without a make-up team or celebrity events to frequent?
A lack of robust and healthy sex education is a set-up for the worst sexual issues we can imagine in society. We need to celebrate the fact that sex comes in every style, and experts agree that there's a wide range of sexual feelings and acts worthy of exploration, as long as they're consensual and don't harm anyone.
Maybe someone can figure out why the assemblage of "Code Breakers," as they're called, are mostly wearing blue? Otherwise, I'm wondering about all the beaming when it comes to the demographics, and the uniformity.
