Girl Talk: Finding The Good In Goodbye

About a month ago I was standing in a sandwich shop near my office and my mind went to the place it usually does, which is wondering what I would do if Ex-Mr. Jessica walked in. His office is only 10 blocks away from my own, so there is a very real possibility we may… More »


Mrs. Crystal Hefner Graces The Cover Of Playboy

Girl Talk: I May Be Single, But I Am Not Alone

I’ve always been kind of a loner. While I’m silly and funny and irreverent with one or two people, I clam up in social settings and in groups. I think this is why I’m a good interviewer: I focus very intently and intensely on one person. More specifically, I need a lot of time in… More »


Jake And Taylor Are No More

It appears that Hollywood’s most puzzling pair has called it quits. The Jake Gyllenhaal/Taylor Swift relationship is dunzo.

Maybe Gyllenhaal got sick of staring into Swift’s squinty eyes. Or sick… More »
