Oscar Theory #3: The Out-Of-Nowhere Star Gets Best Supporting Actress

Let's play Oscar psychic for a minute, OK? I have a pretty good idea of who is going to win this year's Best Supporting Actress Award. My crystal ball says Mo'Nique—and not just because she won both the Golden Globe and SAG awards. See, the Academy is pretty darn predictable on who they decide to…

4 Signs You’re Not Girlfriend Material

I make no apologies for having dated a vast collection of maniacs, freaks, weirdos and losers. Sometimes—OK, often—I’m embarrassed when one of these ghosts from The Dark Years pops up, but mostly I look at my romantic history as a protracted, occasionally painful, thankfully non-contagious, learning experience. It’s easy (for me, anyway) to look back…

Vanity is something that plagues women—all of us have fallen prey to the aesthetic monster at some point.
