Grammar 101 With Courtney Stodden

Courtney Stodden’s Twitter, the gift that keeps on giving. Last week, Courtney’s super sexy sensual tweets taught me how to take my own 140 character purple prose up a notch, but I knew there was so much more to learn from the 17-year-old wife of 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. In addition to her enviable vocabulary, Courtney really knows how to assemble a complex sentence, revealing many important lessons in grammar. So, class, the bell has rung — it’s time for Grammar 101 with Professor Amelia and my assistant @CourtneyStodden. Take your seats and click onward!

Gwyneth Paltrow Will Not Judge You For Cheating

“I am a great romantic — but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist. Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs. It’s like we’re flawed — we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge.

I cannot help but wonder if Gwynnie is playing the “my friend” game here and the people she “respects and admires and looks up to” are actually herself and hubby Chris Martin.

I actually mostly agree with the sentiments she expresses above, although I don’t think it’s necessarily judgmental to say that infidelity sucks and cheating is a crappy thing to do.

When I married Jason on August 7, 2010, the same day as his 29th birthday, we didn’t feel that marriage would change our relationship dramatically. After five years of dating, we were true partners-in-crime who had traveled the world together, raised two small dogs as though they were our children, and enjoyed daily debriefing sessions involving beers and work dramas we called “Power Hours.” Classifying us as genuine best friends would be an understatement. However, when Jason was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on April 2, 2011, our world and our relationship was flipped upside-down. Everything changed — and I don’t just mean the obvious cancer hurdle. Striving to feel like a normal newlywed couple was, and still is, the most difficult challenge. Keep reading »
