After my mother's death I found a fictionalized story on our highly complicated upbringing.

"Whatever happiness may be derived while raising children, the joy of feeding them trumps all others; the prospect of not feeding them is in fact the most deleterious."

School Systems Want More Ronan Farrows



I’m not sure when this happened, but elementary schools are loading children up with intense performance anxiety creating kids so stressed out their brain is being wired with very bad chemicals, specifically cortisol.  I thought this push to succeed logic typica

The Wolf of Wall Street in Me





Though I have written a great deal already about this movie, because it’s stayed with me for nearly weeks now and with each scene replay, another level of truth revealed, I felt compelled to sort out some thoughts.


First, I loved the film. And I

Don't let go!  But let go. What?



Like many people seeing Gravity for the first time, I loved it. All that space junk flying at you, the beauty of being in outer space, the constant edge-of-your seat action, the amazing camera work, the pithy

Miley Cyrus, Blurred Edges, Fame and No




Here I am once again so late to the party that not only has this Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke twerking thing passed but apparently she was engaged then not engaged to some famous guy I never heard of--Liam Hemsworth. I had to look him up.  Honestly, could

If I Was Lindsey Lohan I'd Be Dead




From what I can see, when a wealthy person, trust fund kid or celebrity needs to clean up, they ask around to find out the best luxury rehab, not necessarily the most effective.  I'm all for luxury and getting sober comfortably, sure why not, but

I wrote a piece a while back on parental substance abuse, and the fallout this has on their kids.  Given the great number of celebrities that headline the news about their struggles with addiction, there is rarely a mention of the ensuing damage this has on their child/… Read full post »

Halle Berry or Litigious Lawyer?


Halle Berry as Cat Woman 


I was involved in a minor car accident a few weeks ago. Los Angeles is an impossible city to drive in. Not only are you constantly negotiating gridlock traffic at all hours (where are these people going on the 5 at ANY given time?) but youRead full post »

An average of 270,000 rapes occur in the United States each year; or 1.3 women are forcibly raped each minute. These are the ones reported to police. Only 16% of rapes are reported.
Shame. We still live in a culture where girls and women are/… Read full post »

Lena Dunham's Boobs, Patrick Wilson, Games


I don't get all the hullaballoo over this weeks episode of Girls, One Man's Trash. So, big deal, the storyline diverted from it's path and focused only on Lena Dunham, her boobs and a hot guy, Patrick Wilson.


Even Patrick Wilson chimed in: "It reminded me of my… Read full post »

Calling Katie Holmes..

My girls, now 9, leave a timeline of their lives through the music they listen to. Most recently it's Four Non Blondes Whats Up. Or Linda Perry. Because they also love any song by Pink. They informed me Pink was greatly influenced by Linda.

Angelina Jolie Meets Mayim Bailik



It's impossible not to bump up against these articles on helicopter parents, hovering parents, attached by the boob parents, you get the idea.  It seems to have turned into it's own cottage industry with celebrities; some write books like Mayim Bialik (I don't k

Good Bye Red States!

Dear Red States:

 We're ticked off at your neanderthal attitudes and politics and we've decided we're leaving: ...

"Legitimate rape" is almost reason enough!

 We in New York intend to form our own country and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

Tony Scott

How to say mommy has breast cancer

Many mothers who are diagnosed with breast cancer want to shield their children from the truth in an effort to not alarm or upset them. Experts don’t agree with this philosophy as children can pick up the smallest of clues when a parent is sick. You are their anchor and th

Broken things can lead to love

From the moment we met, everything about our relationship was broken. I was bicycling at Gold’s Gym in Hollywood, listening to Bob Dylan. I barely noticed the guy to my left. I’ll call

Toolshed Sex

I rarely go to parties. No time. Or maybe I’ve been to my share. I do attend children’s parties because it’s part of the deal. Here, you mostly hang around and talk to other parents about, well, basically how they are coping now that life has changed so drastically.
Amanda Bynes mug shot

Whether it’s Randy Travis’ mug shots splashed across tabloids, news of Amanda Bynes hit-and-run after an earlier arrest for a DUI or community service handed to Miley Cyrus for drunk driving, there is a celebrity battle with substance abuse seemingly everyday.

Jackie O is Dead

I ambled down the street, dragging my old stuffed dog, Oscar, a matted, one- eared stuffie that I had since birth.  Terrified for my sister who was at home being scolded, a familiar tremble took hold of my small body, a trembling I had no control over. People tremble. People hit each

 Colorado victims

At what point does parental responsibility enter in catastrophic events?

In reading all the news covering the tragedy in Colorado, very little if any commentary is directed toward this subject.

It was writer/director Neil LaBute’s idea.  “Why don’t I write a story, and Cultural Weekly can do a writing contest?” he asked.

The rules were simple: No more than 1,000 words, and it must contain a character or element from Neil’s original story.

Too Busy is an excuse

This is my first "open call" post, and it caught my eye for a number of reasons.  I've never not been active or busy. Whatever that even means.
