ny post chirlane mccray cover

This kind of bullshit makes my blood boil: the New York Post‘s cover today shows a picture of New York City’s First Lady Chirlane McCray with the headline, “I WAS A BAD MOM.” It references an article that just came out in New York magazine about McCray’s life in which she writes about her difficulties balancing work and motherhood.

But did McCray actually ever call herself a “bad mom”? Of course not. Keep reading »

Chiara De Blasio Wore A Witch’s Hat To Her Dad’s Swearing In As NYC’s New Mayor

Everything I know about Chiara de Blasio, the 19-year-old daughter of New York City’s new mayor Bill de Blasio, has led me to conclude that she is smart, brave and a total fashion risk taker. I admire both her decision to be upfront about battling substance abuse and to don tricky accessories, like a conical witch’s hat she wore to her father’s swearing in on New Year’s Day. I’m not saying I will be wearing one anytime soon, but Chiara? You keep doing you, girl. [Photo: Getty Images]

Chiara De Blasio, Daughter Of NYC’s New Mayor, Describes Her Depression And Battle With Substance Abuse

“Getting sober is always a positive thing."

I would like to applaud Chiara de Blasio, the 19-year-old daughter of New York City’s new mayor Bill de Blasio, for her bravery in speaking frankly and honestly about her struggle with clinical depression and using marijuana and alcohol to cope. The Santa Clara University sophomore just completed an outpatient group therapy program for depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, and in the video above, released by the de Blasio campaign today, Chiara discusses her recovery. “Removing substances from my life has opened so many doors for me,” she says. “I was actually able to participate in my dad’s campaign … Now I’m doing well in school and actually getting to explore things that aren’t just partying.” Keep reading »

Get The Look: Chiara De Blasio’s Headband!

Yesterday, New York City elected its first Democratic Mayor in 20 years. Headed to Gracie Mansion with Mayor-elect Bill De Blasio is his amazing family — wife Chirlane McCray, son Dante and daughter Chiara. Oh, and one more thing. Chiara’s awesome array of headbands, which she has worn all campaign season. My personal favorite? This crown of roses, which Chiara wore at many events and in a De Blasio campaign ad. Best of all? I think I found Chiara’s exact headband at Urban Outfitters and it’s only $20! Score. [Urban Outfitters]
