Everywhere you look there’s a John, Christian (Christie?), Daniel, Jacob, Sarah, Lily — names derived from the Bible, or at least credited that way. My Jewish friend chose the Hebrew name ‘Ethan’ for her son, and I”m sure many of you know people whose religious beliefs influenced their children’s names as well.

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard at a video of a baby crying in my life. Possibly I’ve never laughed at a video of a baby crying, since I don’t generally find sobbing infants all that amusing, but this baby … well, she has some very unique taste in lullabies, let’s put it that way!

Babies these days. They’re so different from when I was one. Moons ago, when I was a drooling, waddling blob of cuteness, if you handed me a magazine, well, truth be told, I probably would have tried to eat it. Today’s babies? They don’t eat magazines. They just think of them as nothing more than broken… READ MORE »

I love a trippy psychological thriller full of raw talent even more than I like mint chip ice cream on a hot September day, and that’s saying a lot. And in this regard, the upcoming film “Martha Marcy May Marlene” looks right up my alley. I’m ready to gobble it down.

The film… READ MORE »

I’ve dealt with an annoying neighbor or two in my day. Know how I handled it? I quietly resented them from inside my apartment until their atrocious habits became so unbearable, I was eventually forced to move out of my sun-drenched abode. The healthy way. So, I’m kind of in awe of the guy who… READ MORE »

Ever since he seemed to string ex-gf Jessica Simpson along, I’ve thought Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo was kind of a schmoe. But now that’s all water under the bridge, and he’s happily married to Candice Crawford. I guess there are a handful of people out there (in Texas, most likely) who are really intrigued… READ MORE »

This M.A.C. video tutorial showed up in my inbox this morning and I’m loving it.

It’s a quick, easy way to make it look like you have the fullest, most luscious lips in town — and you probably already have the products to do the job in your makeup drawer. Love it!

In Norwalk, Ohio, Chrissy Houtz had a stranger take a picture of her while she was nursing her newborn son at the city pool, and they passed it around like a “wanted poster.” She was harassed and told to stop, but after speaking with Ken Leber, the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Superintendent, who promised to… READ MORE »

And so it begins, the frenzied media wars to get the first Casey Anthony television interview. The race to get Casey’s story is so brutal, in fact, that it involves lies, shady deals, cover-ups, and loads of speculation. But Casey’s totally used to all that.

One freelance TV producer Al Taylor already claimed… READ MORE »

Labor already has a terrible reputation, so when Miranda Kerr said her natural, drug-free birth was so painful, she thought she was going to die, most people probably were not terribly surprised. And while I am sure it was intense (because duh), it does not do women any good to hear all the time how… READ MORE »

Oh Gwyneth Paltrow, you silly fishmongering crack-smoking goop. You so crazy! In case you haven’t heard Gwynnie’s latest advice on how to live a fabulous, toxin-free existence, Her Paltrowness recently announced that she’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t?

Personally, I love that Gwyneth said she prefers… READ MORE »

Bristol Palin makes many claims against Levi Johnston in her book Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, which came out on Friday. But one of the saddest came at the moment she told Johnston she was pregnant. “It better be a boy,” he told her, and it’s one part of her book I… READ MORE »

A pole dancing class for toddlers offered at a dance studio in England is being attacked by critics who say it’s “promoting sexually precocious behavior” in young kids. But I don’t get what everyone is so worked up about. Isn’t climbing up and down and around a stripper pole just another form of exercise? And… READ MORE »

I’ve always thought guys were more likely than ladies to think about sex all day. After all, don’t we have better, more cerebral things to think about?

Now it turns out that the old belief — that men think about sex all of the time — may not be true. A new study reveals… READ MORE »

With Kate and William’s modern wedding and all, it may be easy to forget that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is set to become THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND! Insane. And with such a looming title ahead of her, comes, well, looming titles for other people. Like her sister, Pippa Middleton.

The behind-the-scenes festivities of a sporting event or music concert include three basic essentials: food, drinks, and groupies. They’re fixtures in the after-party scene, clamoring for the attention and — oh dare they hope? — a moment of bad decision-making to wrangle the sperm of their wealthy and/or high-powered man targets. … READ MORE »

Oh boy, one mom has really stepped in it after publishing her piece about favoring her son over her daughter. In hopes that the post will be taken down permanently, I’m not going to name names (after all, if her post lives, that poor girl might be able to find out what her mom really… READ MORE »
