This morning I blogged about Wendy Williams. I wrote that I loved her, and her show, and wanted to meet her. Well, you’ll never guess who called a mere 4 hours after my posting. The Wendy Williams Show! They called because they saw the blog, and Ms. Williams would like to meet me when she is in Los Angeles next week.
How fabulous is that? You are classy Wendy, and I’m thrilled that you found the blog, dug it, and want to meet me. It could have gone either way I guess. I could have been labeled a stalker and quickly dismissed, but no. She saw the love, appreciated my blog, and respected the Jewish Journal.
I am beyond excited to meet Wendy, and will try to stay composed. That said, it’s not everyday you get to meet your new BFF, so I might be totally not cool, and cry. My son and I are going to hang out with her on Wednesday. Why take my son you ask? Because he knows how excited I am, and he will get joy, from seeing my joy.
How many opportunities do we, as mothers, get to show our children that wishes come true? As wonderful as it will be to meet her, it will be even more special to share it with my son. My life as a mother is about making him happy, so for him to see me be school girl giddy, is a blessing, and I can’t wait to show him off to Ms. Williams.
There has been a huge uproar around Sarah Palin this week. It’s fascinating how many people have written to demand that I shove her under the bus for her statements about the health care bill, and those who voted for it. I’m not sure how it is possible that my singles blog, has somehow been sucked in all this political drama.
I appreciate that people care about my opinion, and are so invested in what I have to say. I’m sorry to disappoint you all, but I don’t really have anything to say about it. I suppose I could say, I think her posting targets on her Facebook page, over the locations of the politicians who abandoned the Republican Party, and voted with the Democrats, was disgusting.
I could say that her statement about lock and load, or whatever she said, were deplorable. I could say that people completely overreacted, and are villianizing her because of who she is, and everyone needs to chill. I could say that people need to worry about real things like obesity of urban children, and hunger of rural children in America, and leave her alone.
Yup, I could say all of it, but I won’t. What I will say is that I am a supporter of President Obama, and the health care bill. I will say that I was a huge fan of Teddy Kennedy, and he would be pleased with the bill. I will say that Elisabeth Hasselbeck annoys the crap out of me.
At the end of the day, it does not matter what I say. Liberals will think I needed to be harsher, and call her out for being dangerous. Conservatives, will be disappointed that I bought into the propaganda about who she is, and what she believes. I will let Sarah Palin fight her own battles, and I will simply be quiet, and support OUR President.
Just a quick reminder to all of my readers: to those of you who read daily, and those who find me by accident and decide to come back, I am not a political blogger. I write about being single, over 40, a single mother, and my search for love. I leave political discussions to the politicians, and you should send your political comments to political bloggers.
I just read that Bethany Frankel, from The Real Housewives of New York City, did not invite Jill Zarron to her wedding, which is happening tomorrow. Are you kidding me Bethany? That better be gossip, and not true. If you did in fact not invite her, it means you are a petty, selfish, and stupid girl. No matter what has happened between you, she should be there.
If I were Jill, I might choose to not come, but the decision needs to be hers, not yours. After everything you have been through together, and everything she did for you, especially when your life was falling apart, for you to not include her, is disgusting. Grow up, and call her. You need to beg her to come and share your day, or you will feel bad about it forever.
Dennis Hopper received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. He has pancreatic cancer, and looked so frail. To see him was shocking at first, but it quickly became lovely. I was so happy to see him get his star. That he was well enough to be there, to share it with his children, and have that moment with his friends and fans, was wonderful to see.
To be so ill, a moment like this might lift his spirits, and give him the strength, and motivation, to fight for one more day. One more day with his children, and that is magic. I don’t know what is going on in his house, but I read all the entertainment magazines, and to his soon to be ex-wife I want to say, really?
Let this man die in peace. You are behaving badly, and in the end, when your daughter is old enough to understand, she will see that you tormented her father when he was ill, and at the end of his life. Seriously, stop being so selfish, and give your daughter the gift of her father, for as long as she can have him.
It’s been a long week, and I am very thankful that it is Friday! My son is on Spring Break and I am thrilled to have him home. We are going to hang out, relax, chill with friends and enjoy ourselves. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Be kind to one another, pray for the troops to come home quickly, and love your kid. Shabbat Shalom, and keep the faith.

Burbank sixth-grade teacher, Amy Beck, pleaded no-contest to having unlawful sex with a minor in a deal that will land her in jail for two years. She is 33, and slept with a boy who is 14, the same age as my son. This chick is disgusting, and I have an unwavering desire to slap her.
Beck entered a plea in exchange for prosecutors dropping four other charges against her. She also admitted to a new charge of committing lewd acts on a child under 16, which will require her to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
How is it possible, that this woman can shatter a family, and damage a child, and only serve two years, which we all know will end up being one? I don’t get it. If my 14 year old son were to have sex with a 33 year old lady, who was his teacher, I would be mortified by this sentence. How dare she, abuse her position of power over this child.
I don’t care how mature you think a child is, a boy of 14 is never going to be able to handle the emotions that go with sleeping an adult. It is rape of a minor in my opinion, and I am pissed off by the sentence this chick is getting. It is a slap in the face of not only the boy, but also his parents. Imagine what all the kids must be thinking about her, the boy, and the school.
I don’t care that she is going to be listed as a registered sex offender. She should be, because she is. I want to pull my kid out of school, home school him, and never let him leave the house without me. Seriously! How are we supposed to raise our children in a world that is so scary?
I am not so naïve, as to think that boys of 14 are not becoming sexually active. I know it’s a time of experimentation, and trust me, I lose sleep over it. The thing is, this was not two kids maturing and discovering sex. It was an adult, abusing a child. It was an adult crossing a line.
My son is at his new high school today, spending the day shadowing a freshman, to get a feel for the school. When I dropped him off this morning he looked so old. I smiled, wished him well, gave him a quick hug, watched him turn the corner, and sent him off into the unknown. I got in the car, and starting crying.
I cried for a lot of reasons. I cried because I was so proud of him that he did so well in school, and got into one of the top high schools in the country. I cried because I could remember back to his first day of pre-school, and thinking that I would never survive not being with him all day, every day. I cried because I love this boy with all my heart, and he will always be my baby.
I am crying now, because it is unthinkable to me, that after all I have done to raise this little boy, someone could come along, and break what I handled with such care, for so long. To Amy Beck, I want you to know that you are truly horrible, and should be ashamed of yourself. Just because you admitted what you did, does not lessen what you have done.
I hope the boy, who was the victim of this piece of trash, will be okay. I am sending prayers to him, his parents, and his friends. When I pick up my son from school today, I am going to hold him a little tighter, for a little longer. May God bless us all, and watch over our children. For that I shall pray, and keep the faith.

I could be off by one or two, but I believe I have officially gone out on what seems like one million dates. I am my own millionaire matchmaker. Unlike a famous Millionaire Matchmaker, you may know from television, I am a great Jewish woman looking for love, not a disgusting skank, who is an embarrassment to women, Jews, and matchmakers everywhere. I’m just clarifying.
I think dating is really, really hard. What’s so interesting to me as a dater, is that it really doesn’t need to be. Dating should be fun. A first date is full of promise. If you remove any and all expectations, and go in with nothing but hope, then it should a great thing. Every love story started off with a first date, so the possibilities should be endless.
While I think dating can be a great thing, I don’t date just to date. I put myself through this misery because I have hope that one day I will meet someone wonderful. As my son gets older, and begins to carve out his own life, my desire to share mine, becomes bigger. I think the best thing I can do for my son, is fill my own life, so I don’t smother his.
The reoccurring theme that seems to be a part of all my dates, is lying. Why do people lie? I know women lie too, but I don’t date women, so let’s make this about men. Men lie, and it’s really frustrating. Do they not realize that every first date could be with the woman of their dreams, and they could wreck their chances by being a guy who lies?
If someone is willing to lie, then what does that say about them as a human being? If you say you are single, when you are married, does that make you a pig? If you say you are 5’ 11”, and are really 5’ 6”, does that make you an idiot? If you say you are not a smoker, but show up for a date smelling like an ashtray, does that make you a dumbass?
I love men, and have had some wonderful men in my life. I have loved some really fantastic men, and been loved back by men who were phenomenal. I have been a terrific girlfriend and a fantastic wife. I am a caring, supportive, nurturing, and tactile partner. I am my best self, when in a loving relationship. Even knowing all that, I am finding it hard to keep trying.
Before I get a ton of emails saying that I don’t need a man in my life to be fulfilled, that is not what I am saying. I want a man in my life because I want him there, not because I need him there. There is nothing wrong with a woman saying she wants a man in her life. I am saying it. I want one, I need one, I deserve one, and I am going to eventually get one.
Can somebody please explain why it is so hard to meet someone worthy, and why it is so easy to lie to people about things that should never be lied about? How is it possible that so many people write to let me know they are in the same boat? If there are so many great people out there, why are we not finding each other?
I’m the first to admit that I’m not perfect. I’m also not everyone’s cup of tea. That said, my horrible dating pattern of late, has nothing to do with me. I’ve been honest and funny, and feel that I have presented myself in a true, and sincere way. I guess it would be easier if I had someone to blame for my dating misfortune. Who can I pin this on?
I could blame Hitler. It is totally possible that had he not killed 6 million Jews, my Beshert might have been the relative of someone who was murdered, and therefore never given the life he deserved to live, or the opportunity to meet me. It’s Hitler’s fault that I am not in a committed and loving relationship. Rotten, filthy, disgusting, sickening bastard.
I could blame Sarah Palin. People like to blame her for everything that is wrong in our country, and since I live here, I could easily blame her for my being alone. Thanks a lot Sarah. You are ruining my love life. I could blame President Obama, and his passing the health care bill. Damn you Barack! I could blame Biden for dropping the F-Bomb! Are you F-ing kidding me Joe?
Rather than blame anyone, I will just take a self-imposed break, and enjoy Pesach with my son. I’m not going to be sad that I’ve been on a million dates. Instead, I will be proud of myself that I am making my way through the heap of frogs, and therefore one step closer to my Beshert, with each date. It will never be time to quit, so taking a moment to regroup, is a good thing.
So there you have it. We learned a lot through this little blog of mine. Men are pigs, people lie, Hitler is to blame for my not being married, Sarah Palin is responsible for my bad choices, President Obama is the reason I have not had a good date in almost a year, and Biden has the mouth of a sailor! My blog went from being funny, to educational, which is cool.
I’m not going to get discouraged. I am going to enjoy Passover, and hang out with my kid for his spring break. I am not going to freak out about turning 44 in two weeks. I will focus on all the blessings in my life, and then come back after the holiday, with a renewed spirit. I won’t give up. I shall simply step away, then jump back in, all while keeping the faith.

Sunday night was week two of Celebrity Apprentice. It cracks me up that all the “celebs” are being so polite, when we know there are a few hotheads in the bunch. It’s entertaining to watch them not be real. I’m waiting for a big blow up, and pretty sure it’s coming soon.
The show starts off with Bret Michaels giving a check for $100k to the American Diabetes Association. I am not sure what is more disturbing, his hair, or the fact that I find him oddly attractive. He was charming with the kids he presented the check to, and I’m glad he won.
This week they are creating a storefront experience with Kodak, so people of New York can have Kodak moments of their own. Project Managers are Sinbad, and Maria Kennelis, the WWE chick. I think she is made of out of plastic, and may actually be animatronic.
We start off with the men, and Sinbad is all over the place. I don’t understand anything he is saying, and neither does his team. They cut away to an interview with Rod Blagojevich. This guy, and his hair, are truly fascinating. I think the boys in prison are going to find him very attractive.
The Kodak people are meeting with the chicks, but I am distracted by the Kodak ladies hair. Why don’t any of her friends tell her that cut is wrong? Cyndi Lauper needs her own show. A reality show, where we just follow her around, and watch her life. She is amazing, and I love her.
The girls are annoyed with Cyndi. Sinbad is annoyed with Bret. The men are annoyed with Sinbad, but not one person gets pissed off, or says anything harsh. Really? You are playing to win, and for charity people. We will respect you more if you are real, than if pretend to be a “celebrity”. Everyone is just a little too aware of their image.
What makes their fake niceness even more annoying, is when we see Rod on the phone, talking about his pending case, and the people who crossed him, and he is cursing, and getting upset. It is fabulous. Why can’t they be like that with each other, not just when they think the camera is not filming them?
The two best moments are: 1) A random woman on the street mistakes Rod for Donny Osmond. Really? I wish I could get drunk and roam the streets of New York. And 2) Maria is eating a popsicle, in a provocative way, while talking to Donald Jr. and he struggles to pay attention. Reality television perfection.
Bret Michaels has a little nervous breakdown, and it’s awesome. I love him, and his hair made out of straw. He feels left out, and believes they are shooting him in a way that makes him look like the bad guy. Poor celebrity ego is pushed to the limit.
Sharon Osbourne is getting sick, and a write off for this task. All the chicks are throwing Cyndi under the bus, but not to her face, only to the camera. Cowards. On the men’s side, they are all done with Sinbad, but again, only complaining to each other, not to him. Grow up everyone.
Sinbad screws up with the printer and nobody gets mad. Bret storms off, and everyone thinks he’s a quitter. The men’s team is crumbling, but everyone is passive. Sharon is passing out food, and coughing all over it. It’s a train wreck and I can’t get enough.
Both storefronts were crowded, and chaotic. Nice to get your picture taken with a celebrity, but who waits in line for an hour for a picture that then takes another hour to print? I would like to point out again, for no particular reason, Holly Robinson Peete cannot be trusted.
The women win the task and Make a Wish gets $20k from Maria. One of the men is going down, and it’s weird because they are acting like a bunch of school girls in the boardroom. Where is the throw down? They are all being nice, and passive aggressive. The lack of balls is annoying.
The Governor is such a politician, I was surprised he didn’t pull a baby out from under the boardroom table and start kissing it. Goldberg starts talking, and they cut to the ladies who are wondering about his “shortcomings”. Maria looks as if she could confirm, but says nothing.
The Governor, Bret Michaels and Sinbad are in the boardroom and one of them is going to be fired. Trump asks Brett who should go, and he says Sinbad. He explains that the first day was very “discombooberated”. Everyone looks at each other, but nobody corrects him. Perfection.
Sinbad is fired. It took 20 minutes instead of the necessary 5. He looks like he might actually cry when he is canned. It was sad, and I think he may have been a little discombooberated. This show rocks, and it’s only just begun. Next week promises a twist, and I’m all in.

The 10th season of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night on ABC. It almost didn’t matter who was dancing, because I was so happy that Samantha Harris was gone, I would have tuned in to watch anyone. Welcome to Brooke Burke. My only advice to her as she starts her new job is, eat a sandwich.
First up is Chad Ochocinco: Are you kidding me with this guy? His body is insane. What are the chances that he is Jewish and looking for a 44 year old single mother in the valley? Seriously, you can pop a quarter off this man’s rear end. He did a great job for his first time out and I think he’ll be around for a while.
Shannen Doherty: She was okay. She cried for her dad and it was sweet, but a little early to be milking sympathy votes. I wanted to see her, but she was a bit of a joy sucker. Her body looked weird, and one eye is much lower on her face than the other. I grew up watching her, and I think she’ll stay for a little while.
Erin Andrews: I don’t know who she is, and I don’t think she is even remotely interesting. Her costume was funky, and it made her right boob look 2 sizes larger than the left one. I would like it very much if she were the first one to get the boot. It’s a drag because Max is great to watch, but someone has got to go first, and it should be her. Bye Bye.
Jake Pavelka: We all know I didn’t dig him as the Bachelor. The only reason I was interested in seeing him now, was to watch Vienna watching him. Here’s the thing, he was really good. When he starting jumping up and down when he got a 7, I totally crushed on him. I never would have believed it, but he’s got my vote. Go figure.
Niecy Nash: I was most surprised by her, and it had nothing to do with dancing. I find her to be annoying, and I hate her on The Insider. But she was charming. She is funny, and I want her to do well. Bless her for loving her body, and letting women know it’s cool to not be a size 0.
Evan Lysacek: What can you say about this guy? He was great. He is the best in the world in his sport, and I predict here’s in the finals. He is oddly feminine, and I want to cut his hair, but he is fabulous. If he gets the boot, it will be because Anna’s fake hair color was too distracting for America. Why doesn’t someone tell her that color only works in a Tim Burton film?
Buzz Adrin: Ouch. This man is a legend, icon and American hero. He looks great for an 80 year old, and his flirting is charming. All that said, he is not a dancer. Not everyone is going to win, and clearly he is not, but he is special, and I hope he stays around for at least a few weeks. His wife Lois was adorable, and she is almost as interesting to watch as he is.
Nicole Scherzinger: It’s impossible for this girl could be any prettier, or appealing. She is such a sweet girl, that you almost forgive her for being so nice. Almost. Great dance and a nice dress, except that I wanted to pull off the pieces of toilet paper they attached to her wrists because they were very distracting. She got a great score, and will be around until the finals.
Aiden Turner: Let’s be perfectly clear, I love you Aiden. I don’t care if he can dance and to be honest, I did not even pay attention to what he did. I got lost in the accent, the face, all of it. Super low score, but who cares. Let’s hope he’s there at least until he take his shirt off. He is great to look at, and the dancing does not even matter.
Kate Gosselin: She is the first train wreck of the season. Dear Lord woman, go home, and watch with your children. When Bruno was criticizing her, she got the same look in her eye that she used to get before she emasculated her ex-husband on Jon and Kate Plus 8. This version of the Octomom, needs to go home, and be with her kids.
Pamela Anderson: I love this chick. There is not a centimeter on this woman’s body that is not sexy. I dig her personality, and thought she did great. She is a gorgeous, but relatable. She is totally my top female pick, and I’m sure she will be around till the end. She has an interesting vibe, where you could see yourself as her best friend, even though you would never leave her alone with your husband. Love her.
It’s going to be a great season. Brooke Burke did a good job for her first time out, but needs to stand up straight. Tom Bergeron is fabulous. I think he should win an Emmy already. Jeff Probst keeps winning for a show that is created in the editing room, while Tom is perfect, LIVE. Jeff Probst needs to stop winning, and they need to give Tom an Emmy!
There are some real contenders. Some will get better with time, and be phenomenal by the finals. Some are train wrecks that you just can’t stop watching, and others still, will bow out due to injury. I think it’s the best cast ever and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out. To those who will soon be on their way home, it probably won’t help, but keep the faith!

Birthdays: I will be turning 44 in two weeks. It is hard for me to believe that I am in my mid 40’s, because I feel like I just turned 30. I don’t feel my age, and I like to think that I don’t look it either. Maybe there’s a little denial involved, but still, I feel younger than I actually am.
When I was about to turn 40, I was a little spooked. It felt like I was entering a new phase of my life, and that can be a little scary. As I rapidly approach 44, I am very secure. I feel proud of who I am as a women, a mother, a friend and a daughter.
I am embracing this time in my life. I am aware of who I am, what I want, and what I need to do, to get it. I want it all. I want a happy and healthy relationship with my son as he becomes a man, and I want a happy and healthy relationship with a man.
Babies: I was at a Sunday brunch and open house yesterday, and I was surrounded by babies. I love babies. There were some seriously cute kids hanging around, and at one point I could actually hear my ovaries convulsing. I always wanted to have a lot of kids, but I think that ship has sailed.
As I watched all the babies, it became clear that I am not going to have another one. It’s not about how old I am, it’s about how old my son is. I can’t imagine a life where I’m changing diapers, and filling out college applications, at the same time.
It was sad to admit I was not going to have another baby. At the same time, it was liberating. I have a delicious son, and I look forward to loving and spoiling his children. Until then, when I need a baby fix, I will hang with my friends, their babies, and the babies that are coming soon. xo
Beauty: At the party yesterday I met a girl who was so incredibly beautiful, I could not stop staring at her. She makes Megan Fox look like a troll. I wonder what it must be like to look like that. I wanted so much to find something annoying about her, but in the end there was nothing.
She was funny and sweet. She was also Canadian, and I can’t be hating on my own people. At the end of the day, I like how I look, and love who I am. At 44, there is a confidence, understanding, and history, that all combine to make me beautiful. I wouldn’t go back, because right now is too good.
Bullock: I thought about Sandra Bullock all weekend. I have been completely and totally in love with a man, who then cheated on me, and broke my heart into a million pieces. I can remember a time when simply getting out of bed, seemed like too much of a chore.
I hope Ms. Bullock knows her heart will heal. It will take a while, but she will see the sun again. It took me over a year to recover from my heartache. Then it took me close to another year, to trust myself to love again. I wish her well. I also hope she has the strength to walk away.
Bitches: I’m not offended when someone calls me a bitch. There are circumstances when it is shocking, and undeserved, but it’s not a word that makes me cry, or crushes my spirit. As a single mom, who is a survivor, a lot of my accomplishments have been achieved because I was willing to be a bitch.
To the gentleman who felt the need to call me a bitch during our date this weekend, you’re charming. Was my being annoyed that you are separated, and still living with your wife, not divorced like you said, that inspired the name calling? Whatever. Better to be a bitch, than an asshole. Just saying.
To my new reader Dante, who is a grown man who was raised by a single mother, your email meant a lot to me. I love my son more than anything, and that you got it, and were able to relate to it yourself, was very special. Thank you for reading, and taking the time to write.
I had a really great weekend. It was very busy, but incredibly relaxing. It was one of those weekends, where I did nothing monumentous, but still felt very accomplished. I’m counting down the days to 44, as well as counting my blessings. I am able to do both, by keeping the faith.

I cannot even begin to understand the humiliation and heartbreak that Sandra Bullock must be feeling. For months, she has gone to every awards show and said that her personal happiness, and professional success, is directly connected to her husband, Jesse James. That he has now admitted to cheating on her, is unimaginable.
In a statement he said, “It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded. Beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment.”
I can’t even call Mr. James a pig, because that would be unkind to pigs. They are so much smarter than this guy. This man is an idiot, and he has released the most pathetic apology ever. Does he think that by saying he deserves the bad things that are coming his way, we will feel sorry for him? Not going to happen dumbass. How did you get so successful, when you’re not that bright?
The woman in the middle of this marriage is Michelle McGee. She is a tattoo model, and a seriously screwed up chick. I love tattoos, and have some of my own, but there has got to be trauma of some kind in your life, that would make a woman tattoo her body with images of hate, including her face. She has “Pray For Us Sinners” tattooed across her forehead. That is messed up. You need more than prayers Michelle.
This girl has a Swastika tattooed on her stomach, a “W” and a “P”, inked on her legs, which reportedly stand for “White Power”, and has posed in a Nazi themed photo shoot. Really Jesse? Have you lost your mind? You need to not only apologize for cheating on your wife, but for your choices, which are disgusting beyond just the cheating.
I don’t get why famous men choose to cheat on their wives with such unattractive, and unappealing women. Tiger slept with hookers, porn stars and skanks. John Edwards slept with a whore. Now Jesse James is sleeping with a woman who is scary, and clearly a damaged human being. Why sacrifice everything, for nothing?
He sat there and smiled, all the while he was having sex with a Nazi loving, tragic, money hungry, skanky, tramp. For a man who sells himself as being so cool, that is just not cool. This man has been married twice, has 3 kids from 2 mothers, and is in a custody battle. Even with all of that baggage, Sandra loved him. She did not judge him on his past, which is huge.
We don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. There could be a million reasons that he felt the need to stray outside of his marriage. What we do know, is that to publicly humiliate a woman, who loves you, is disgusting. When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. He has shown you Sandra.
Sandra got married when she was 40, and came to the table with her own history and baggage. A marriage breaks apart for a lot of reason and perhaps both are to blame. All I’m saying, is if you love someone enough to marry them, then love them enough to not humiliate them. Simply walk away, and allow them the opportunity to handle things in a way that is easy for them. Not only is James an idiot, but he is a coward.
My disgust is based on disappointment. I believe in marriage and when one is broken, it is sad. I feel the same way about a high profile couple, as I do about the couple in the corner apartment. A marriage is special, and to have it is end is unfortunate. If you are married, and trying to make it work, I wish you well. Remember that even if you are not in love anymore, you once were. Respect each other, and keep the faith.
