May 11th 2011 10:34PM Was it not so long ago that Ang did a Vanity Fair shoot and a tatt on her thigh was supposedly " for Brad " as well? Guess Mr Pitt likes his ladies painted. Whatever. Cannot wait to see where all that ink falls to when she hits Betty White's age. Then again, maybe I don't want to know!
May 8th 2011 7:10PM re-varnished, sturdy, country craftmanship verses the look of that tiny counter space in your physician's treatment room where he washes his hands after speaking to you? Give me the homey, country feel any day! The kitchen is the heart of the home; people celebrate in it, pay bills at the table, duck as babies throw food at them from the high chair! We check homework there, we teach our recipes to future generations! It's The Kitchen-the hub of every family and frankly I wouldn't feel real familiar in such a stark environment as the after photo. I like wood, deep wood with lots of country charm accents on the walls and even some cabinetry with glass windows. Anything else is as sterile as a hospital lab!
Apr 20th 2011 10:08AM I forgot about that quote, thanks for reminding me. What a good way to live! Michael Sarrazin was my crush all the while I was growing up. Sorry he died so young. RIP, handsome!
Mar 26th 2011 4:31AM The first request was made three years ago and now she has denied a second request?! In three friggin years she couldn't have juggled some appointments to make about 45 minutes of time to grant the wish of a tiny little sick child?! Repulsive doesn't even begin to describe this woman! I will never watch her show again. Rachel Ray is busier than this heffer but I bet SHE would have made time for the kid! I always DID feel like Ina Garten was rather snobish, now I guess my instincts were spot on. Well she's lost quite a few veiwers for this stunt.
Mar 26th 2011 3:57AM Sue that was a wonderful description of the local newspaper's homage to Liz Taylor! I can almost see it in my mind's eye! It would be great if you could post the name of the newspaper so we who are interested could go to their website and see it for ourselves, if you would be so kind as to do that I would appreciate it! Thanks in advance, Jackie Butler.
Mar 24th 2011 4:28PM I used to like Lopez-until now. But if he wants to break out the playground taunts-here's one;
Georgie Porgie ate puddin and pie
til the day they said he'd die...
if he didn't get a new one...
so he stole that kidney and then he RUN ( away from the faithful wife who saved his life, that bastard!)
And a PS to Kirstie; those upper arms look Michelle O'Bama great! Good job Doll!
Mar 19th 2011 4:23PM Not to discount the sufferings of the other aforementioned celebs in this story but the one that chaps me the most is the story of that Miley Cyrus girl. I read an article a few days ago that had her father saying he was canceling his divorce from his Wife of 17 years " ...because ( he ) wanted to be daddy and daughter with Miley again " ?!? No mention of wanting to reconcile with the woman he has been married to ( nor his other kids ) but Miley. Most of us regular, quiet , working people are happy with our children. Most of us would be excited if they acheived some level of success ( not for bragging rights so much as that we can go to our graves knowing they won't be homeless ) but some of these kiddie-celebs have parents who truly make me wonder if they had children to start a family or to start a breathing retirement fund! Well, either way, Bless them all.
Mar 15th 2011 2:42PM Funny you mentioned that, jwj ! Back in the 1990's I was a cashier in a grocery store and we were told that we could not accept more than 28 cent in pennies for a purchase. In the area the store was located we had many patrons who would clean out the " have-one-leave-one, need-one-take-one " penny plate and basically use the free money to buy things like single cigarettes or sodas. We also had a policy that even if the coins were rolled, the customer had to unwrap them at the register so we wouldn't get any " plugged nickles " ; it was common then to put a few real coins at each end of the paper tube and slugs in between. Even if they wrote a phone number on the tube, who knew if it was real?! This guy is amazing in his attempt to use so many pennies to pay his bill. Had he had a bank account the coin counter would have sorted them for no fee and he could have taken the receipt to a teller who would have given him legal tender notes. Without an account he would have been charged some 9 cent on the dollar. Maybe he is just eccentric enough to try and pull this off ( apparently successfully ) however I don't suggest we all start paying our bills in change. This guy simply slipped through the cracks. I know I won't try it! LAH! ( laughing at him )
Mar 13th 2011 9:08PM Oh my sides! First off, I knew quite a few gals who had cultivated this look ( circa 1979 ) when they got knocked up at age 15 and living with Moms & Dads all accross this country! Next, why would you use your own baby's room as a guest room? ( And who would be sorry enough to impose on the wee one and agree to sleep in her room?! Or his, if it's a boy!) Also, if you aren't willing to buy a sleeper sofa then why would you have overnight company to begin with?! Too many scenarios to post here but the bottom line is... this baby-must-bunk-in-a-guest-room can be described in two words; EPIC FAILURE! Give up your own bedroom before placing visitors in with your child! Jiminy crickets!!!
Mar 10th 2011 1:07PM Oddly enough as I read the last sentence of this article it occured to me how Rob Shuter always seems to end his reports on a positive note; non-judgemental even though sometimes the subject(s) of the stories could use a good verbal thrashing, he simply doesn't do that. Quite refreshing. Then I read your post where you pick on him for putting an apostrophe where one is not required? Excuse me? Perfect yourself? Rob writes wonderful articles; non-biased, simply the truth without the paparazzi edge a lot of his peers use. And, again, ends them with just enough empathy. Also he is from England, quite educated in fact. Were you to Google him and read the wikipedia on him you would know this. You had your opinion and now I have opined as well. Were he to read my post I would say, good job, Rob!
