Blondes (Still) Have More Fun

Is it a matter of opinion? Or just a contradiction? But from where I come from, All the blondes have more fun. Well, just watch them sisters on a Saturday night, Peroxide causin’ all the fights. Oh, the memories of those days, when my glorious golden mane made the girls stop and stare! Walking around […]

‘Mi Casa en Beacon Hill’

It was discovered that Alec Baldwin’s wife, who pretended to be a Spaniard named “Hilaria,” is in fact a New England WASP of colonial stock who was known as Hillary Hayward-Thomas to her private-school classmates at the Cambridge School of Weston, growing up in a five-bedroom home in the prestigious Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston.

No More Mr. Nice Kruiser

What’s Wrong With Tomi Lahren?

But the couple broke up because “the controversial Fox News star wasn’t ready to settle down,” according to the Daily Mail. That seems rather odd, considering that when she and […]

‘Bond. James Bond.’

The news Saturday of actor Sean Connery’s death marked the end of an era. For a generation of men, Connery’s portrayal of James Bond — Agent 007 in Her Majesty’s Secret Service — was the ultimate expression of cool. The espionage was just a plot device, really. What counted was the extraordinary character at the […]
