“Nothing is a no-no. But moderation is key. As for sugar, you should cut all sugar out of your diet for five days in a row, maybe Monday through Friday. This will allow your brain to break its addiction to sugar. But be sure to allow yourself a cheat meal on the sixth and seventh days. Deprivation is not a long-term solution.”

I have two children, and we’re expecting our third (and last … hello, vasectomy!) in the spring. I recently saw a billboard that claimed babies cost about $700 a month. I did the math on my 2.5 kids, and holy disposable income; the figure hurt. The billboard was an advertisement to deter teenage pregnancy, but if I hadn’t already taken the plunge, it would have made 30-year-old me think twice before procreating. Keep reading »

Since I was a kid obsessed with “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” I’ve been fantasizing about Ever-Lasting Gobstoppers, Lickable Wallpaper, Wonkavision, and Three-Course-Dinner Gum. The Three-Course-Dinner Gum would have been the world’s most perfect invention in Wonka’s factory had it not turned Violet Beauregarde into a blueberry prompting her dad to scream, “Violet you’re turning violet, Violet!” Amazing news! This fantasy gum may actually become a reality thanks to the new technology that can capture time-release flavors in microscopic capsules. Keep reading »
I think it’s high time for Mariah Carey to end the speculation and just tell the world that she’s preggers already. It was Nick Cannon‘s 30th birthday this weekend, and at his party, Mariah walked around all night wearing a black trench coat over her ensemble.
