A Conversation with some Sh*tty Moms

A Conversation with some Sh*tty Moms

Every once in a while a book comes along that is so funny, so irreverent, and one that I can so completely relate to, that I need to give it a Lost in Suburbia shout out. Today Show producers and self-appointed sh*tty moms, Mary Ann Zoellner and Alicia Ybarbo  just released a sequel to their NY Times bestseller, Sh*tty Mom: The…

It's an Honor Just to be Nominated

It's an Honor Just to be Nominated

I went to The Oscars. Do you like how nonchalantly I said that? It’s actually more like, I WENT TO THE OSCARS!! It’s true. I can’t even remember the last time I even stayed awake to watch the entire Oscars and now I attended the actual event. The other big difference is I wore an actual dress as opposed to…

Matzoh… latkes… whatever. Jewish holidays aside, I always loved this movie because,…

Muffin Top: A Love Story

Note: Today I’m doing something on my blog I almost never do (and I promise it’s PG-rated)… I’ve invited my friend Cathryn Michon to guest post about her amazing new movie, “Muffin Top: A Love Story.” Why am I doing this? Well, first of all I HAVE a muffin top (a few actually. They tend to multiply over the years,…

Hanging with the Rich and Famous at Blogher

Hanging with the Rich and Famous at Blogher

There are some people who go to conferences to network. Others go for the informational sessions. Some go to reunite with old friends and make new ones. Me? I’m just in it for the celebrities. Yes, I admit it, I’m a celebrity stalker. Not in the “wackadoodle, go through their garbage, imagine we’re married,” kind of way. But in the,…
