So, as you might have guessed, the tabloids are going cuckoo bananas over that fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged and have set a date for the royal wedding. Since the big day isn’t until April, that gives the gossip mags months to speculate about the details. And from what I can tell, they are going to use every single day of it. Somehow, I managed to sift through all the Princess Diana comparisons and engagement ring talk to find some other celebrity “news.” But let’s just say you should plan to be in wedding mode for the next couple of months.

Every time I see the trailer for “Burlesque,” the more and more it seems like a PG-13 version of the infamously NC-17 “Showgirls.” Even the teaser posters for both movies are eerily similar, down to the font choice. Which is confusing, because “Showgirls” is so laughably bad, I’m just not sure why any studio would greenlight such a similar movie. Or why anyone would want to star in it.

Ah, Thanksgiving. When you’re a kid it’s all about the mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. When you’re an adult, it’s all about rude inquisitions from your nosy aunts and your dad getting horrifically, embarassingly wasted. I don’t know anything about stuffing a bird or making a perfect cranberry sauce. But I do know a thing or two about dealing with family, seeing as I have a huge, colorful one. Gather ’round, children, and take in my wisdom from awkward family holidays past! (Also, I’m a full-blooded WASP, so take my stiff-upper-lip swamp Yankee suggestions with a grain of salt. Maybe in other parts of the country, you solve problems differently!) Keep reading »
