    I write a very honest look at this show.  I do not get sucked in to all the silliness of thinking that this woman is somehow my friend, just because I’ve seen her pee.  I watch her on television because in the beginning, she was a breathe of fresh air, and very entertaining.

    This week in Israel, a Jerusalem District Court made a mockery of the word rape.  They sided with a woman who acted like a slut, rather than a man whose only crime was being a lying, cheating, pig.

    Just before watching the latest installment of Bethenny Getting Married, I read an interview Bethenny did with E! where she says she did not understand why Bristol Palin and Levi Johnson would do a reality show.  She said she didn’t know who they were, and just didn’t get the... read on

    I’m heading to Disneyland today to meet a childhood friend.  We grew up together in Langley, British Columbia, and have not seen each other in about 28 years.  I think I was 17 when I last saw her.  We were just kids, and now we are mothers, reuniting with our own kids in tow, and... read on

    July 21, 2010 | 9:11 am

    It is hard to believe that a year ago this week, I posted my first blog for The Jewish Journal of Great Los Angeles.  A lot has happened in my life, and in the world, over the past year. I have talked openly about motherhood, dating, sex, porn, television, love, loss, joy, aging,... read on
