What Are You Grateful For Today?

I was getting my morning coffee today at my local neighborhood spot when a blind man walked in. The two baristas and I watched as he used his cane to navigate around. He had wandered into the shop kind of accidentally on purpose. Most likely just to get a whiff of the intoxicating smell of coffee and pastries. But then he couldn’t find his way out, even with his cane. One of the girls came out from behind the counter, took his arm, and escorted him out of the shop. The other looked at me really earnestly and said, “Ya know, we don’t appreciate what we have. We always want more and more. We’re never grateful enough for what we do have.”

I was slightly taken aback since we make small talk every day, but never really talk on that level. How right she was. As I walked out, sipping my coffee, I was inspired to acknowledge what I was grateful for … as hokey as it may sound. Recently, I’ve been thinking about how important it is to be humble, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I’m grateful for many things, but for today, I appreciated that I was on my way to a job that I love. What are you grateful for today? Please share in the comments. Keep reading »

“The Breakfast Club” Turns 25

The cast of “The Breakfast Club,” minus Emilio Estevez and John Hughes (who died recently), got together on Monday night for a screening to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary. Ally Sheedy even brought her 16-year-old daughter to watch it with her. Wait. Has it really been 25 years since “The Breakfast Club” came out? I may be getting old, but this movie never will. It just so perfectly embodies the timeless quality of being a teenager. Don’t worry, we won’t forget about you. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Less Hair Down There = More Merkin Makin’ In Hollywood

Now that having hair down there is so passe for women—and even for men—merkins are the new hot prop on Hollywood sets, especially for anything that takes place before the year 2000. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s OK. I didn’t know what a merkin was until Kate Winslet won the Oscar for her role in “The Reader” and talked about her merkin non-stop.

Dear Diary: Ami Starts A Bad Romance

In honor of Dear Diary Day, brave Frisky staffers share their most mortifying diary entries. Share yours in the comments. We promise not to laugh.

This is a mortifying poem I found in my diary from 1997. It’s called “We Walk Away” written for the bad boy I was in lurrrrvvve with when I was 18, the summer after my freshman year of college. I’m sure you can all guess how it ended. Very, very badly. All in all, a thoroughly embarrassing illustration of my man-hating feminist, hardcore, slam poetry, post-Goth phase of life.

Jodie Foster Will Remain Mel Gibson’s BFF

“The second I met him, I said, ‘I will love [Mel Gibson] for the rest of my life,’ … When you love a friend, you don’t abandon them when they’re struggling … But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can get him through this dark moment.”

Jodie Foster in the October issue of More magazine. I think Jodie needs a refresher course on the concepts of “toxic friendships” and “dealbreakers.” [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Tina Fey Is A Proud Member Of The Drunk Moms Club

According to Tina Fey, Emmy losers have more fun. On “The Jimmy Fallon Show,” she recounted her wild, post-Emmy party night out with the other drunk moms, like Amy Poehler. The highlight of the night was when she yelled, “This is what it looks like when New York gets drunk!” to the paparazzi. I think I would have kids just so I could join the drunk moms club with Tina and Amy. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

6 Celebrity Splits That We’re Blaming On Scientology

celeb scientology splits elisabeth moss and fred armisen jpg
Mad Men’sElisabeth Moss has officially filed for divorce from Fred Armisen citing “irreconcilable differences.” Yeah, I would say if she is a diehard Scientologist and he’s not, that would be an irreconcilable difference. Apparently, if you question any part of Xenu’s teachings, you are deemed a “Suppressive Person” or “SP” by the church and ex-communicated through a process called “Disconnection.” We’re sorry, Fred, but it may be better this way. [Huffington Post, Technorati]

After the jump, some more celeb couples who we suspect may have fallen out over Scientology.
