    By  Tom Tugend

    August 8, 2012 | 3:21 pm

    Growing up in Beverly Hills, Marissa Roth remembers her father and mother, both European refugees, as parents who repressed their emotions and personal suffering, and forbade their children to cry.

  • A Conversation with Brandi Glanville

    By Ilana Angel

    January 12, 2012 | 6:25 pm

    This week I had to mail a couple of packages.  I waited in line at the post office for 15 minutes because it makes perfect sense that such a busy location would only have one employee working. When I finally got my turn, the woman who was “helping” me, was a complete moron.

    I...

  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills UPDATE

    By Ilana Angel

    January 2, 2012 | 8:58 pm

    This show is exhausting to watch.  The women are so full of crap that it’s as if we are watching full blown scripted television, written by really bad writers, and staring really bad actresses.  Even the ones I like are becoming unappealing.  Never mind that watching Russell feels...

  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:  Spitting on Russell Armstrong’s Grave

    By Ilana Angel

    November 15, 2011 | 1:03 am

    Before I blog about this train wreck, I want to say I am sick of this show.  Each week I think it can’t get any worse in terms of their behavior, and then they outdo themselves.  These women are fame whores with no regard for each other.  This week’s episode it yet another...

  • Real Housewives of BH: Is that Beverly Hills or Botox Heaven?

    By Ilana Angel

    November 7, 2011 | 9:36 pm

    These chicks seriously make me sick.  I used to dig them because it’s where I live, so seeing the hood is cool, plus their wealth is fascinating.  They are now just a bunch of fame whores, who have no real loyalty to each other, and nothing to do with their time.  They suck the joy...

  • A Conversation with Dana Wilkey

    By Ilana Angel

    October 24, 2011 | 1:51 pm

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Dana and she is a fascinating woman.  She called me from home, and did not block her phone number which I thought was unusual, but sweet.  While it was probably an oversight, she could just be cool and figured I was not a stalker, and did not worry...

    By Ilana Angel

    October 18, 2011 | 10:56 pm

    Dana Wilkey is one of the newest cast members of RHOBH.  She is a little out there to be sure, but there is something sweet about how desperate she is to fit in with a group of crazy people.  I think she is fun, sweet, kooky, and on a mission to get famous.  Important to note that...

  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills High School Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    October 17, 2011 | 11:33 pm

    I watch this show, because I am an addict, but I cannot give a blow-by-blow recap as it’s simply too excruciating.  What I am able to do however, is go through the list of ladies and share my take on them and their behavior, based on this week’s train ride through hell.

    By Danielle Berrin

    September 14, 2011 | 11:32 am

    The bells at the door tinkle, and the fashion designer Simin jumps up from a velvet bench and politely excuses herself.

    “My next fitting is here,” she says, promising to return to her life story a little later.

    Outside her 4,000-square-foot Robertson Boulevard studio, a leggy...

  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are Back and Completely Disgusting

    By Ilana Angel

    September 6, 2011 | 12:59 am

    I watched the premier tonight thinking that perhaps they would be classy and handle the suicide of Russell Armstrong with respect and dignity. Instead it was a disgusting display from a bunch of fame whores.  I watched the entire show, but I am not going to do my regular recap, and I...

  • Watching Glenn Beck from Beverly Hills

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    August 24, 2011 | 2:59 pm

    “Welcome to the land of milk and honey,” the newsman-impresario said.

    Back in Los Angeles, over breakfast of bagels and lox, 50...

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    July 26, 2011 | 2:47 pm

    When the towers of the World Trade Center fell on September 11, 2001, wreckage was strewn across Lower Manhattan. Papers from offices fluttered all the way into Brooklyn. And as cities across the country prepare to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, the...

  • Hebrew lit club agrees to disagree

    May 17, 2011 | 5:41 pm

    Although it feels like an art gallery — with its dark wood floors, white walls and oversize paintings — this Beverly Hills condo is home to another kind of art for the evening. Between a cream-colored leather sofa and a dining table obscured by colorful appetizers are two rows of...

  • Hiding in Beverly Hills

    March 9, 2011 | 12:31 pm

    Why would a wealthy Russian businessman with ties to his country’s notorious ultranationalist party known for its anti-American and anti-Semitic positions flee to Beverly Hills?

    Ashot Egiazaryan, the fugitive Russian who can afford to go just about anywhere, isn’t talking.

    November 22, 2010 | 3:25 pm

    [UPDATE] Beverly Hills Police Department: ‘Ronni Chasen killed by lone gunman on a bike’

    It was fitting, in that Hollywood way, that the last time Ronni Chasen was seen alive was at a movie premiere. She was there in all her usual glory — stylish and smiling, effortlessly...
