My Mom Is Better Than Facebook

I used to get the back-home gossip from my mother. In the olden days, when “Men in Black II” came out, she was like a Greek oracle or a Shakespearean seer. With her job in the school district, she always knew what was happening with everyone. Charlie’s a plumber and about to be engaged to Samantha the artist. Bobby, who had that baby so young, is working for the fire department. Mom always knew how to deliver the news; she’s your oldest confidante. She knows that when you’re too old for that kind of thing, you’re still gonna cry when the last strawberry in the floundering patch dies, and about that boy who was soooo cute when you were 15 and gangly. When the news was bad, I was prepared before she spoke because of her deep inhale and too-long pause. After telling me the girl who wore sneakers to the senior prom was killed by a drunk driver, we stayed on the phone together.

Then came the “just the facts, ma’am” Facebook. Keep reading »

Haiti Earthquake Survivor Shows Amazing Spirit

Now, three days after the devastating earthquake that rocked the capital of Haiti on Tuesday, amazing stories of survival are beginning to pour out of the region amid tales of despair and heartbreak. This morning the “Today” show spoke to one impressive young American woman who was in Haiti as part of an adult literacy program when the earthquake hit. Trapped beneath rubble for several hours, Christa Breslford was preparing herself for death when she was pulled to safety by her brother and several strangers. Sadly, she lost a leg through the ordeal, but her attitude and amazing spirit are reminders of how important it is to keep things in perspective. “I’ll still get to live my life,” she told Matt Lauer, “there are a lot of people in Haiti who won’t.” With all the devastating images we’re seeing from Haiti, and the sad stories we’ll be hearing in coming days and weeks, it’s uplifting to hear one as inspirational as this. And remember, if you would like to make a donation to the Haiti relief effort, you can do so through Doctors Without Borders, the American Red Cross, or, to name just a few.

6 Reformed Celebrity Man Whores

English comedian and actor Russell Brand has done quite the turnaround since meeting Katy Perry. The two have gone on a bunch of over-the-top romantic vacays and the dude even met Perry’s uber religious ‘rents. Oh yeah, and now they’re engaged. But we remember when Brand was super bad-ass. He is a recovering alcoholic, and a former sex and heroin addict. During his crazy period he was arrested over ten times and developed a reputation as pretty much the biggest player ever. We’re all for bettering yourself, but we gotta wonder: Will it last?

We can’t answer that, but let’s look to some other reformed celeb bachelors and see how well the goody-goody act sticks.

Quotable: Note To Self, Don’t Get Romantically Involved With Alec Baldwin

“What’s worse than waking up with a 25-year-old woman, you know what I mean? You want to go shoot yourself because you have nothing to say to her. Seriously. It’s sad but there are men who go for whatever their earliest ideal of a sexual partner was, they stay with that ideal, meaning men often lock into the image of the first girl they loved at 18. They get stuck in an idea of sexuality with young women. Other men learn to see beyond all that. …

Men are literally lying in bed with their wives when the marriage is essentially over thinking ‘I’ve got to get the hell out of here’ and have a fantasy woman in mind. Then you get divorced, meet a woman, marry her and, by the time all that goes by, you’ve aged a few years and are ready to go back to your ex-wife. You want a woman who is sane and normal. A woman who is more like you. You’ve gotten older.”

—Alec Baldwin, who apparently has quite a bit in common with his character from “It’s Complicated” [Contact Music] Keep reading »
