Top Ten Charlie Sheen Quotes From Monday
Charlie Sheen continues to be the media gift that keeps on giving. I wrote three stories about him today alone. As he glad handed his way from NBC to ABC to TMZ and anything else with a three letter abbreviation he spewed out some gems for the ages. We all have our favorites. Let’s get some t-shirts made. 1. “I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available...
In Case You Missed It...Fashion Week Happened Last... →
Alas, Fall/Winter Fashion Week came to a close last Thursday and I am just becoming human (clean apartment, regular yoga, drinking things other than Frappaccino and Skinny Pepsi) again. But I loved the project I worked on for FW, my series for the Wall Street Journal on the unsung heroes of Fashion Week, from the man who lifts the tents, the dapper guys who toss out gatecrashers, the woman who...
The Real Faces of Fashion Week →
This week I am doing a series of posts for the Wall Street Journal’s Metropolis blog about the unsung heroes of fashion week. Not the designers, not the models and not the girls with the clipboards, the real folks who make the magic happen. Come with me. I promise it will be a pretty good time.

Still, even I was surprised by the lack of coverage a recent survey of new nuns (all 79 of them this year!) got in the mainstream press.
Lea Michele is Trying Too Hard →
I’ve written a lot about boobs this week. Seriously. You can read about it here and here. I think this shows I am on team boob, pro-boob all the way. But something about Lea Michele’s too show-offy cleavage on the cover of Cosmo had me (and plenty of moms) irked. It’s like she’s trying to hard to get attention and break out of the Rachel Barry mode. My take is that since...
Does America Want To See Sober Charlie Sheen Play... →
Or better yet, should a sober Sheen be playing a drunk character? Both answers are probably no. The answer? Write rehab into Two and a Half Men. Our experts say that would be a bust too. For the good of CBS and to keep America laughing at two mismatched middle-aged men and a gross pubescent teenager, let’s just keep Charlie Sheen drunk.
