Why yes, I did have a good birthday today. Thanks for asking! The day started like any other day – except for the chocolate cupcake for breakfast, of course. By 10:15am my step-dad and I, along with a couple of his friends, were in San Francisco at the De Young Museum for their current special exhibit, Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces From The Musee d’Orsay. I really enjoyed it. One of my favorite things about art is that each piece elicits a different response from different people, and I really get a kick out of eavesdropping on people around me and listening to what...

Remember on the last season of Celebrity Apprentice how Rod Blagojevich took every chance he could to tell someone – anyone! – how innocent he was and that he never lied and that they shouldn’t believe the hype? Yeah, it drove me bonkers, too. I mean, when someone is that defensive, there comes a point when you ask just who they’re trying to convince. Hopefully today’s Blagojevich verdict will put an end to the ex-governor’s rantings of innocence. Just sayin’. Rod Blagojevich was found guilty on just one of 24 counts – making false statements to a federal agent....

It was confirmed today by his spokesperson that Michael Douglas, 65, will be undergoing eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy to treat the tumor* doctors discovered in the actor’s throat. Douglas is expected to make a full recovery, and said in a statement that he is “very optimistic.” The sympathetic human in me says “Aww, that’s too bad. I hope he’s ok,” but the gossip blogger in me says “Publicity stunt!” He does have a movie coming out next month, ya know. Michael Douglas will next be seen on the big screen starting September 24th, in Wall Street: Money...

Tsk, Tsk, Dr. Laura. Although she has since apologized, the fact remains that Dr. Laura Schlessinger used the N-word several times on her radio show this past Tuesday. Eleven times in five minutes, as a matter of fact. It all started when a black woman called in to Dr. Laura’s show to discuss her white husband and his white friends using racial epithets in front of her. In an “attempt to make a philosophical point,” Dr. Laura insulted the female caller by saying she was “hypersensitive” to racism, and then proceeded to use the vile racial slur again and again.
