This past year, my grandchild was seeing her biological parent, then having night terrors, accidents, later going after my animals. Life is not easy. During March, when my mom was hospitalized a lot, my fiancé called me to express his great anger at his father (they never had a great relationship). Their argument escalated, my […]

Mindy Kaling is opening up about the reaction she received from publicly supporting comedian Aziz Ansari after a #MeToo allegation was made against him in early 2018. Ansari returned to standup in February after lying low for a year after an unnamed photographer accused the Master of None star of sexual misconduct during a date. […]

Friends will go down in history as one of the greatest sitcoms ever. That is, if it ever goes down in history. It’s been 15 years since the finale aired on NBC. But a few times each year, like clockwork or a new line of lip kits from Kylie Jenner, a cast member is quizzed […]

LOS ANGELES—As The Young and the Restless head writer Josh Griffith screened the episode in which Neil Winters’ family learns of his death, the tears began to flow. Viewers might brace for a similar reaction when the CBS daytime serial says farewell to Neil and to Kristoff St. John, the actor who played the character […]

When the going gets tough, the tough go to aquafit. That was my thought bubble on a recent Saturday morning after a ridiculously stressful week. I was in the deep end metaphorically but also literally—in my fitness club pool, under the shrewd yet non judgemental eye of our instructor, energetically doing my best version of […]

Despite continued backlash, Kathy Griffin says she doesn’t regret posing for a photo in May 2017 holding a mock “decapitated” head of President Donald Trump.

I remember reading Mötley Crüe’s tell-all memoir The Dirt like it was yesterday. It was 2001 and things were much simpler back then. #MeToo was not a thing in the early aughts, nor was it a thing in the ’80s. If it had been, it’s unlikely a band like Mötley Crüe would exist for more […]

Is our food going over to the dark side? This month, Starbucks released the Teavana black sesame tea latté (made from black sesame sauce), the latest addition to a slew of sensational black foods, including pizza crusts and cold-pressed juices (coloured with activated charcoal) and a black vodka called “Hounds,” rendered dark by the addition […]

Empathy and steel. Compassion and resolve. Meet the new leadership standards as recently exemplified by Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand, who under the most excruciating circumstances, and in immediate response to a devastating loss of 50 lives in the Christchurch NZ mosque massacres last Friday, seemed to get it right. After an alleged […]

“It feels like the fiiiiiiirst time/ It feels like the very first time.” Apologies for not pulling out a more appropriate Cancon reference to kick off another piece about the Juno Awards, but there is a Canadian-born Foreigner musical making the rounds these days so maybe it kind of qualifies. Meghan Patrick says no one […]
