It's only been in recent years that I am at peace with food, and I am certain that this is much more than a temporary truce. Why did it take me such a long time to appreciate the value in my acupuncturist's words? Look around, there's a standard in this country that is harmful to women. Life is lived in many shapes and sizes.

Please repeat after me: it is never OK to publicly say an unkind thing about another human being's face. If you want women in Hollywood to stop getting plastic surgery, maybe you should just stop saying negative things about their appearance, period.

First I heard about all the plastic surgery digs on the social networks during the Oscars, then last weekend I read about Dr. Brandt and saw the results of his work. Finally, after marveling at how Eva Marie Saint has maintained her verve and beauty for 88 years, I think it's time for me to stop fighting.

Personally, I felt saddened watching Kim, inspired by Eva and shamed at how much money I have thrown at anti-aging procedures and potions over the years.

Face Value

We need to teach young girls that self-worth is more important than face value and beauty starts from within. The first measure of being beautiful is not based on how you look to others, but on how you look at yourself

Question: WHY ARE WE STILL TALKING ABOUT HAIR? In today's world, shouldn't we be able to declare our healthy disagreement without reaching for the ceramic hair straightener?

The Academy Awards appearances of Goldie Hawn, 68, and Kim Novak, 81, triggered a firestorm of fan reaction. Both actresses appeared with what were perceived to be dramatically altered faces and the Internet was quick to harshly criticize them. Can we pause a moment and reconnect with reality -- both theirs and ours?

In aging gracefully, it's not about doing plastic surgery but over-doing it. It's about making good choices.

Is It CosmeticSurgery-Shaming -- or Ageism?

Yes, it can be appalling to see people aging ungracefully, even desperately. And duck lips and smooth but unmovable faces can look disturbing. But what I find even more appalling is ageism. The dread of losing youth and looks, projected into disgust with those who try to fight it.

While everyone was laughing at or tweeting how alarming Kim Novak and Goldie Hawn looked with their faces full of Botox, I could only think of a woman who never stood on the Academy Awards stage: my mother.

Kim Novak's Surprising Revelation, Maggie Smith's Good News

She admitted to suffering from bipolar disorder and that she sometimes regrets her decision to leave show business, though she has been many years married to her veterinarian hubby in Oregon. She says she did not receive the proper diagnosis and medication until years after she left the movies. (No wonder Kim was always so sympathetic and supportive of Marilyn Monroe, who was probably bipolar herself.) Kudos to Robert Osborne for inspiring Miss Novak to tell so much more than she ever has before.

People angry at Kim Novak are missing the point. When someone reports a rape you're supposed to grab a pitch fork and attack. That's it. Don't think. Don't analyze. Just get a lynch mob together and go after the rapist, stupid.
