The star-studded opening was enough to cause the nine cigar-chomping, beer-drinking guys I was playing poker with to actually freeze an "All-In" raise, mid-hand, in order to watch it as it happened.
I'm proud to be a woman and nobody's ever accused me of being too accommodating, but there's a few conversations around women that have been amusing me lately.
As a teenage girl, I used to study the photos of those otherworldly creatures and marvel at their sheer perfection -- Kathy Ireland, Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs and Paulina Porizkova, the Czech beauty who was rumored to speak five languages. Did these astonishing creatures actually exist?
The countdown to college admission is filled with anxiety. As a parent, I've been through it with both of my children and lived to tell about it. In f...
Whenever I try to think of a business role model, I come up with a woman. Perhaps I'm prejudiced in favour of female entrepreneurs.
Saying goodbye to you during the "30 Rock" series finale was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. But my sadness can never overcome the overwhelming feeling of gratitude I have towards your fictitious, fabulous self.
Well nerds... after seven seasons on air and winning 14 Primetime Emmys and six Golden Globes, 30 Rock has come to its end. Looking back on the series, there have been so many amazing episodes, and equally amazing guest stars.

You are both not only two of the funniest comediennes to come down the pike in too many years to count, but you both definitely deserve the success you've attained -- which begs the question ... why the insult?
A sandwich-loving, mustache-growing, stress-eating, Star Wars-obsessed, white wine and sprite-drinking, bi-curious shoes wearing, night cheese-singing, blergh-ing, Oprah-worshipping, James-Franco-one-night-standing woman -- Liz Lemon.
Thank you, Jodie. Thank you for being a model of vulnerability, authenticity and true strength. This fellow 50-year-old mom and her 20-year-old daughter both think that you are so very cool.
An evening that is usually epitomized by Ricky Gervais' merciless snark, a room full of old men and their tense teenage brides, was suddenly transformed into three hours that felt like getting to catch up with my favorite girlfriends at a really nice wedding.
Jodie Foster wittily surveyed her career and broached the topic of her sexual orientation in front of millions of people (even if she never said the words "gay" or "lesbian," her meaning was clear).
