I wanted to write something about dating but again, my dating life is slightly boring and totally protected at this point in time. There are a few people I promised I would never write about (unless they did something so ridiculous that it would make it on the “guydlines”) so, unfortunately (for you and not me) there is no fantastic new entry into the hall of shame. Don’t worry; I am sure it won’t be that way for long knowing my amazingly unlucky, luck. However, I have a mother that likes to pry into my business in every which way… Continue Reading

Spoof on Hot Guy Marketing Trend- Meet Josh Button
Before you embark on your long Memorial Day weekend festivities, I wanted to leave you with a big smile on your face and I know exactly how to do that!

Relationships, matchmakers, babies and aliens?
I just can’t get on top of my work but am so excited to be presented with a lot of snarky opportunities that I will be able to share like my upcoming interview with a top Matchmaker for VIP and celebrity clients. Her name is Sherri Murphy and her Elite agency matched up the infamous Latoya Jackson on the OWN network (heard of Oprah before?). I am a little leery of matchmakers. You remember my experience with a matchmaker and how I was set up with a guy who played for the other team? Hope Sherri does a better job… Continue Reading
MG’s Billboard Music Awards Recap
I’ll be completely honest with you, I had absolutely no plans of the Billboard Music Awards even registering on my conscious this morning. On occasion, I’ll pull up the award results in the days following and snicker at media I’ve never consumed earning trophies for their supposed brilliance. A few awards will always carry some social significance – the Grammy, the Oscar, or the Emmy – and even a few performances have managed to carve out some space in my memory. For the most part, however, we’re thrown corporate fodder at a runtime well north of a Yankees/Red Sox game…. Continue Reading
Strange Celebrity Endorsements : Headphones
It’s no secret that branding makes the world go round. On a daily basis, we’re exposed to up to 20,000 marketing messages, and most pass right under our nose without us even realizing it. There’s the obvious ones, like the clothes we wear or the car we drive. But how about the laundry list of celebrity hot sauces? Or Shannon Doherty pledging the merits of an online education? I know my dog only eats food that passed Rachael Ray’s rigorous quality standards. For whatever reason, one product that has become synonymous with the celebrity endorsement in recent years are the headphones…. Continue Reading
Hairstyles of the Stressed Celebrity
Like a naturally occurring phenomenon, it looks like we have another celebrity meltdown on our hands. The sudden collapse of Amanda Bynes is predictable, yet fascinating. Of course, these things aren’t actually a force of nature, but a product of our perpetual infatuation with stars, particularly those we watch grow up in front of our eyes. Recall your awkward teenage years? Imagine if every day, that stage was under a microscope for snarky housewives to digest like rice cakes. I stumble through cases of writers block without the pressures of constant public attention, so imagine how it must feel to… Continue Reading
This Rocks – Monster Energy Outbreak College Nor/So Cal dates

An Ode to the Intern : Libby Graduates!
This weekend while you sit at your local dive and try to make sex eyes at the only person in the room that’s remotely passable, our intern Libby will be donning the cap and gown on the big stage at Loyola Marymount University.

One hit wonder- Dummy Wins Rasta Banana
To most of you, Henry Gribbohm, is not a household name. But this week’s One Hit Wonder spent his entire lifesavings; all $2,600 of it on a game call “Tubs of Fun”. Gribbohm, was trying to win an X-box Kinect, but what this dummy didn’t realize was that he could have bought about 13 Kinects with his so called life savings. Now all this poor soul has to show is a banana with dreadlocks that he seems to take better care of than this 2 year old. I’m trying to figure out what everyone else here is thinking, how does… Continue Reading
