  • Real Housewives of New York City are Lame

    By Ilana Angel

    August 21, 2012 | 9:05 am

    It is amazing what these women are willing to show on television.  They may no longer be entertaining, but they are fascinating.  We start this week at the same party as last week.  Aviva is a yenta who stirs up trouble and Heather is annoyed by how everyone backstabs each other.

  • RHONYC Hits a New Low

    By Ilana Angel

    August 19, 2012 | 5:28 pm

    Back from my vacation in Canada, I returned to what may be the most horrific episode of the Real Housewives of New York City.  These chicks are completely insane and I’m not sure why I was so anxious to see what I missed.  It is 2 in the afternoon and yes, I am drinking.

    We start...

  • The Real Housewives of NYC Stays Fake but Gets Good

    By Ilana Angel

    August 9, 2012 | 8:01 am

    I’ve been watching all season but truth be told, I’m bored. The new chicks are not that interesting and the old chicks have a hag quality that is not entertaining.  I simply could not be bothered to blog about it.  I wasn’t paying close enough attention to recap it, so I...

  • Real Housewives of NYC - Ramona the Roach

    By Ilana Angel

    August 1, 2012 | 8:59 am

    I have been watching this season of RHONYC but not blogging about it. I went in not knowing if I would like the new girls and frankly after the first show thought it would be too difficult to pay close enough attention to write about what I was watching.  It was just not that...

  • Pure Love in the Middle of a Travel Nightmare

    By Ilana Angel

    June 13, 2012 | 12:25 pm

    Yesterday I flew to New York City.  By flew to New York City of course I mean I ended up in a travel nightmare.  I was taking a client’s child to the east coast to go to camp for 2 weeks.  The plan was to fly her in, drop her to her best girlfriend, have dinner with my friends in...

  • Real Housewives of NYC Double Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    June 11, 2012 | 9:42 pm

    I didn’t blog about this show last week out as a shout out of support to Alex and Jill, but I’m going to do it tonight because there are things to be said. Not sure I can stick out the entire season, but here is my take on the premier last week, and the follow up of this week. ...

  • NYC Housewives Implode & No Comment from Survivors or Bethenny

    By Ilana Angel

    September 18, 2011 | 11:22 am

    We’ve been waiting for Bravo to listen to our pleas about the ladies of NYC.  It’s been painful to watch.  It was once a fun romp for an hour a week, but has became a crap fest of screaming, fighting, and no fun.  Well, change is coming and change is good.  Hopefully.

    I’m not...

  • Real Housewives of New York Experience a Massacre

    By Ilana Angel

    September 17, 2011 | 10:16 pm

    Those of us who watch the Real Housewives of NYC have been asking for a shake up and we finally got one.  By “watch” of course I mean we are obsessed.  I have no idea why we are so addicted, but I’m over trying to figure it out.  I watch it, love it, and am not ashamed to admit...

  • Bravo Must Recast Some of the Ladies of the Real Housewives of NYC

    By Ilana Angel

    August 3, 2011 | 12:44 am

    I watched part 2 of the New York City reunion twice and writing this blog has been painful.  There is so much screaming and ugliness that it’s beyond being funny, and is now just pathetic.  The main thing I decided after this entire season is that some of these chicks need to go.

  • Bachelorette Finale: Ashley & JP Lose, While Ben Goes Out a Winner

    By Ilana Angel

    August 2, 2011 | 12:57 am

    The Bachelorette is finally over for the season. Thank God.  I seriously don’t think I would have lasted through one more week.  However, I’m about to watch three hours of hell and I’m oddly exited.  I have a mojito on hand, with a bottle of wine as back up, so let the train...

  • Real Housewives of NYC Reunion:  Why are they still talking about Bethenny?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 26, 2011 | 12:48 pm

    Part one of the NYC reunion was interesting.  By interesting of course I mean a lot of shouting and behaving badly.  On a regular week it is embarrassing to admit that I watch this show, but today is rougher than usual.  These chicks are crazy.  By “these” of course I mean Ramona...

  • Tahl Leibovitz is not only Interesting, but Completely Remarkable

    By Ilana Angel

    July 22, 2011 | 9:33 am

    If there were ever a movie that needed to be made, it’s the life story of Tahl Leibovitz.  My son suggested I write about Tahl when he came across him playing in a table tennis match on television.  I wrote a blog earlier in the week about Tahl Leibovitz which was based on a lot of...

  • Real Housewives of New York City - Ramona is Mean, Not Pregnant

    By Ilana Angel

    July 14, 2011 | 11:03 pm

    It’s Thursday night so I’m front and center watching the housewives of New York City.  Let the madness begin.  We start off with LuAnn in a meeting about her new music video.  Her assistant is there and let me just say: yummy. Countless thinks AC sounds for air conditioning not...

  • Real Housewives of NYC: From Porn to Bankruptcy, My Eyes are Bleeding

    By Ilana Angel

    June 16, 2011 | 10:33 pm

    The ladies are back from Morocco and I’m glad because it’s when they are home that they are their most entertaining.  Every week I say this show should be cancelled, and every week I watch it, love it, blog it, and wait for the next one.  I’d be better off shooting heroin than...

  • ‘The First Basket’ depicts journey from Ellis Island to shooting hoops

    October 30, 2008 | 3:31 am

    It's true that major league baseball has seen a renaissance of Jewish players during the past few years, but the historic American Jewish sport is surely basketball.

    It makes sense if you think about it: Easy to play on the concrete surfaces that are ubiquitous in urban areas,...
  • Melancholy Russian soul flourishing in immigrants

    By Sandee Brawarsky

    October 22, 2008 | 9:57 pm

    The Russian soul, that hard to define, but deep and informed melancholy, is flourishing in Rego Park, Queens, N.Y.

    To the title character in Irina Reyn's new novel, "What Happened to Anna K" (Touchstone), the velikaia russkaia dusha, Russian soul, transplanted to America might be...

  • Going home again is truly a family affair for filmmaker Azazel Jacobs

    By Pat Sierchio

    September 3, 2008 | 9:04 pm

    "I remember at an early age being told in school that Jews were a minority in the world," filmmaker Azazel Jacobs mused. "And I remember just not believing that because I lived in New York City and thinking they must have things wrong because I was surrounded by so many Jews. That...
  • Make Days Count

    By Rabbi Toba August

    May 11, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    When I was in my early 30s I joined a havurah, a group of professionals seeking a deeper Jewish involvement. And during this time of year, just after Passover, we didn't know what to do with the counting of the Omer. How could we make it relevant and purposeful?

    We studied the...

  • Spectator - Scene of the Shot

    By Susan Josephs

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In New York City of the 1930s and '40s, Arthur "Weegee" Fellig often worked all night, shooting the latest murder, fire or urban melee with his Speed Graphic camera. An unshaven, fedora-wearing, tough-talking, cigar-smoking loner, Weegee renamed himself after the popular Ouija board...

  • Remember Sept. 11 the Jewish Way

    By Joel Haber

    September 8, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    I've always had a difficult time assimilating tragedy, and although it hit much closer to home for me, Sept. 11 was not much different.

    Even though it touched people all around me, and I was definitely affected, it still did not seem as intense or painful as it should have been.

    I...

    A Slice of New York

    What better way for school kids to mark President's Day Weekend than with a trip to New York and a slice of pizza?

    On Feb. 19, 100 members of Jewish Student Union clubs, including 69 Los Angeles-area public high school students, took part in the third annual JSU...

  • Hidden Sensuality

    By Tamar Miller

    January 2, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Earlier this month, visitors to the Grand Hyatt in New York City might have spotted an unusually stern warning sign on one wall: "The hair of a woman is considered ervah." Lewd, shameful, naked, unchaste. This inscription, from the Babylonian Talmud, was part of a photographic...

  • Fit From N.Y. to L.A.

    By Batsheva Dreisinger

    January 24, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    When I first moved to Los Angeles several months ago, I went to the gym every day. So, I discovered, does everyone else here.

    This came as a shock to me. As a displaced New Yorker among the angels, I could adjust to the un-NYC features of this sunny world: the shocked glares I'd...

  • Cabaret Couple Hits Carnegie Hall

    By Michael Aushenker

    November 30, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    It seems as if it were just yesterday that Karen Benjamin and Alan Chapman opened their CD, "Songs of Life, Love & Antelopes," with "Marriage is Easy," their self-deprecating nod to their own showbiz marital bliss. Come Dec. 14, they'll be opening for Michael Feinstein at Carnegie...
