Not that John Edwards deserved anything after cheating on his cancer-stricken wife and fathering a child with crazy lady Rielle Hunter, but color me surprised that Elizabeth Edwards, who died in December, has left her estranged hubby out of the will. Cate Edwards, the couple’s 28-year-old daughter, was made executor of the will, which leaves everything to her and her two younger siblings, Emma Claire and John. The will, dated just six days before her death, reads: “All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles … to be divided among them … ”
Elizabeth passed away after a long battle with cancer; after John’s tawdry affair with his presidential campaign videographer burst onto the pages of The National Enquirer, the couple had separated but not yet divorced. Personally, I think leaving John out of the will was a last little “f**k you” to him. Instead of sentimental artifacts of their marriage, he just gets stuck with parenthood with Rielle Hunter!

Her [mother's] alternative approach to the talent competition took her all the way to the title of Ultimate Grand Supreme. And she didn’t even use a flipper. If this is the direction child pageantry is headed, I am in full support. Above, video of her signature performance, though it’s not taken from the actual episode of “T&T.” Keep reading »
In honor of its 40th anniversary, Starbucks has updated its signature siren logo. Basically, the company dropped the “Starbucks Coffee,” meaning that the brand is officially so embedded in our collective unconscious that we no longer need to see its name on our daily coffee fix. Kind of frightening. [CNN] Keep reading »
I got an S.O.S call from my friend Sylvia last night. After only three online dates, she was on the brink of insanity. We debriefed about her dates from hell and I had to be the bearer of bad news. “You are picking the wrong guys.”
“How do you know?” she asked, mortified.
“Show me their profiles and I’ll tell you why.” Keep reading »
