    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...

    It was a strange series of events that led me to being on a horse, too early in the morning, while I was on vacation in Hawaii. I had only been horseback riding once before, during the one summer I worked at a sleep-away camp. The experience had not left a positive memory, as...
