  • The Real Housewives of New Jersey Dive Into The Gutter

    I’m not sure how it happened, or why, but Bravo has decided to let this show slide into the gutter.  These women are manipulating their “reality”, clearly orchestrating drama, and shame on Bravo for not giving its loyal audience a little credit, and reeling these chicks in.

    I have followed the story of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit since he was captured on June 25, 2006.  He was 19 years old when he was abducted, and it has been four years since his family has seen, or spoken to him.  Four years since his mother touched her baby, or had a good night’s... read on

    Bethenny, Getting Married? was painful to watch the first two weeks. I’ve developed a bi-polar love affair with Bethenny Frankel.  The RHONYC ended with my really liking her.  I took her side in all the drama with Jill, and was sincerely happy for all her successes, and hoped her... read on

    I only date Jewish men.  For me, it feels safe and comfortable to be with a Jew.  It is my faith, and regardless of one’s level of Jewish observance, it is important to me to have that bond.  I am raising my son Jewish, and would hope that when he gets married, he will marry a... read on

    The show starts off with a new opening, which does not include Dina.  In the back of my mind, I thought she would still be around every once and a while, but it’s not happening.  She is out, life goes on, and the other ladies, all but Danielle of course, are not too happy about it.... read on

    My son graduated from middle school last week.  He did a phenomenal job, ended with a stellar report card, and looked handsome as he walked across the stage to get his diploma. I’m sure he will forget a lot about the day, except for one thing.
