    I like watching Dancing With The Stars and in the past, in fact in every past season, I watched as much for the train wrecks as for the dancing.  This season however, there is not a train wreck to be found.  It’s a solid group of people and some of them are really very good.

    Bethenny starts off this week with a girl’s night out in anticipation of her 40th birthday.  She has her “friends” over and you can’t help but wonder who these women are.  She slams them, saying they look like hookers, and strippers.  They are now watching back asking why the... read on

    I recently got an email from a young man in New York City named Jonathan.  He is in his twenties, and a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.  Jonathan, along with his friend Ari, gradated in 2007 from the School of Engineering and Applied Science.  They met in the dining hall... read on

    Thursday night was the season finale of Jersey Shore.  You would think the last show would be a blast, but in the end it was a little disappointing because we spent an hour watching Ronnie and Sammi break up, again, for good, again.  I love this show but come on.  MTV owed loyal... read on

  • Bethenny Frankel is Jewish?  Right.  Nice Baptism

    Bethenny Ever After was on last night and once again I watched.  I cannot stop watching.  Every week I think she will never back to her old fabulous self and every week she becomes more repulsive and offensive.  She is in love with her own voice, is convinced she is funny, and... read on

  • The LA Marathon, Monsoon Rain, Kindness of Strangers and Beit T’Shuvah

    Sunday was the Los Angeles Marathon.  It was also the day that a monsoon hit LA.  It did not stop raining all day and we’re not talking about a little bit of rain here.  It was a torrential downpour of rain, with vicious wind and serious cold.  At one point it actually felt like it... read on
