Tonight marks the beginning of Yom Kippur. Though I speak to God every single day, Yom Kippur is special because when every Jew prays at the same time it is a chorus being sent to God and... read on

  • Dating 101: Mug Shots & Convicted Felons

    By Ilana Angel

    September 13, 2013 | 7:13 am

    I received an email this week from a man online that I am pretty sure was using a mug shot as his profile picture.  The Internet is an amazing place and while the odds of finding love online are not good, it would appear that the chances of meeting a felon are great.  For a woman... read on

  • LeAnn Rimes Crosses a Line

    I am not a fan of LeAnn Rimes.  I enjoy her older music and there is no denying she used to be a talented singer, but as a woman, I have no respect for her. LeAnn Rimes is young.  I was not nearly as dumb or immature at 31 that she is, but still, she is young and her dysfunctional... read on

    This week, while running an errand in Hollywood, I came upon a young man on the street. He looked a little bit like Jesus as he had a beard and was wearing a long white tunic of some kind.  As I approached him, he asked me if I had any spare crack.  I stopped for a second because I... read on

    By Ilana Angel

    August 25, 2013 | 2:21 pm

    Last night I threw a drink in the face of my date.  It was shocking to him and me both. I did not plan it, enjoy it, or feel any sense of accomplishment in my actions.  It happened. I regret it. It was disrespectful to the man I was with, and while I believe it was justified, it... read on
