May 3rd 2011 9:50AM Marisol: I totally get why black women would straighten their hair. Michele Obama went from dizzy in her graduation picture to dazzling hair as 1st lady. The question I have is this: if you must straighten your hair to get it to manageable, is it still easier? It looks like alot of work either way and I do not envy it. PLus, just like white women's hair-- some is better than others.
Jan 30th 2011 9:27PM Please. Those of us who saw what the press did to Princess Diana pray that you stop with this disgusting reference to his mom, the ring (which was in bad taste) and certainly spare all of us pictures of Diana in her lifetime. Let this go. Let this couple set their own life. And, stop comparisons to Diana. You are venal
Jan 29th 2011 5:52PM All the women have the same face. For him, it is the thrill of the chase because there isn't much difference among them. I give him credit, he is quite clear he will not remarry. Only silly women think they will change him.Why would he marry? What would he get out of it? If he wanted kids, he'd have them. And, since none came along accidentally I guess that question is answered.
Jan 24th 2011 3:06PM Gee, Rege, I thought you were old enough to put your ego at the door. Besides, you could pay off the deficit now. At 79 how much time do you think you have to spend it all?
Jan 22nd 2011 10:28PM First of all, why bring this death up now?I have lost all respect for him. Don't exploit and don't disrespect your wife of 30 years by chirping about the Chippie, who cares?
Robert, you sold out to something and certainly did not help anyone.

Dec 9th 2010 10:16AM I like Sara Palin. I watched her show with interest. But, I have to be honest-- I felt a little sick when the fish was about to get a bonk on its head and the animal was felled. It isn't that I don't eat meat, etc. I just felt sad.
Nov 22nd 2010 12:40PM Miley looks as if she got the toilet paper roll stuck to her shoe; the Smith's are setting up both kids to be buffoons; and the worse the outfits the more you have to assume they have no talent. Taylor Smith is gorgeous and not trying too hard.
Nov 11th 2010 10:01PM Sadly, a beautiful woman like Marie has chosen to drown her sorrows in plastic; she is beginning to look like Cat Woman.
Marie needs to seriously look at addictions, hers.
As for her son's suicide, she can do whatever she wants to get past the grief, which is enormous.
But, stop Marie with the plastic; clearly at this point, your own emotional health has proven over the years to need some help. Sad about your son. But, you need help.
And, not from Dr. Cat Lady.
Aug 15th 2010 12:28PM Hey Redacted: Very clever article and I am sorry that your poetic license for the sake of humor was lost on so many. I am old.I view weddings with some cynicism that I didn't have when I was in my 20's.
First of all, there was a presumption that the white dress signified virginity; and, that the honeymoon was about the first time. Rarely, today, have the bride and groom not been living together for years and their first time was often at evening's end of date three when everyone had too much to drink. They have lived, had sex, entertained, broken up, gotten back together, begged for a ring, cried and laughed in the very same apartment to which they return after this regal affair. So, the white dress is lost in the translation, as is the presumption of innocence.
I am a practicing Catholic. You are not supposed to be living together,etc. before marriage. So, technically speaking, they should not be getting married in the church until they have squared things with God. They usually don't.
Today, there are so many divorced people at weddings that the pool of
hopefuls seeking the bouquet looks like a rally. Recently divorced, why are you looking again? Your best thinking put you together with your ex. Why are you trusting your judgment to pick any better the second time.
I want any couple taking the step to declare a life together to have a special celebration. But, I am with you. Please keep it within the boundaries of your situation. People who have been living and fighting and breaking up and rejoining for years might keep it simple. And, work harder at the marriage than you do on your wedding day. The rate of divorce would indicate that living together, a wedding for 300, a honeymoon trip around the world, has no bearing on longevity.
Oh, one more thing: I watch Say Yes to the Dress. Please explain to me how after dating for 10 years, because you just weren't ready, you are all of a sudden ready for the leap? Or, the bridezilla's who are so psychologically damaged, and yet, the guy goes through with a union that has no chance of lasting? What makes these emotionally unavailable women so captivating?
I go to the church; I do to the reception; I pray for the couple; enjoy their celebration and hope that they beat the odds of it lasting-- especially for the children's sake. Divorce is damaging to kids.
