Hello, Would You Please Take Your Shirt Off?

Sam and I had dinner at Jennifer’s house last night. Once the wine was poured and the conversation began to flow, she interrupted us with her delightfully twangy Mississippi accent, “Oh, before I forget, and before he gets back from the store – I sent him out for bread – I have this guy staying here for a couple of weeks. His name is Flo… short for Florent. He’s this hot, straight, French soccer player, and ice skater, and his body is flawless. I mean he’s an athlete and all, but he’s also 23, because you know, there’s everything you can do to have a great body,” she said fluttering her hand over her midsection, “and then there’s 23.” Continue reading ‘Hello, Would You Please Take Your Shirt Off?’

Gwen Stefani Slept Here

Gwen and Gavin’s Los Feliz home is up for sale. It’s a flawless, 1928 Mediterranean north of the boulevard. In this economy, it’s a lot of ducats for a mere 5,000 sq. ft., but if you’re into Gwen, tick-tock-tick-tock-tick-tock.

Click here for over 50 shots of this mad, mad pad.

If you don’t have a realtor, I’d recommend ours: Robert Carey, at Sotheby’s.

P.S. Save your cards and fan letters. They haven’t lived there for over a year.

More info and photos after the jump. Continue reading ‘Gwen Stefani Slept Here’

Getting Off Lexapro

I’ve been taking Lexapro, an SSRI, for over two years, and I’m weaning off at the advice of my doctor.

I made the mistake of going three days without Lexapro last month. On the third day, I felt really energetic – REALLY energetic – and I got a lot done at work, that’s certain, but by the end of the day, I felt jarring little shocks of ‘electricity’ in my head and shooting down my arms. That was in addition to feeling a little dizzy that afternoon, and easily becoming suddenly irritable, all in withdrawal from Lexapro. (Poor Sam.) That convinced me that ‘cold turkey’ was not the way to go. Continue reading ‘Getting Off Lexapro’

A Raspberry Memorial Day Weekend in Hollywood

A full three days off, and a full three days:

A barbecue with our friend Sonny the rodeo rascal, and his partner, Ken, a man who radiates wisdom and safety. Everyone in attendance, under 30, checking their Blackberries at 7pm, doubtlessly looking to the next event of the evening. The Sex and the City release party we just didn’t have the stamina for, and Sam’s subsequent nightmare that I’d added Sarah Jessica Parker curls to his head, and then left him for a latino boy with a bubble butt. That’s ridiculous. Continue reading ‘A Raspberry Memorial Day Weekend in Hollywood’

Hillary Clinton Has Lost Her Cotton-Picking Mind

“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.”

The high in Sioux Falls, SD was only 63 yesterday, so she isn’t crazy from the heat. The ongoing stress of the campaign? Lack of nookie? Freudian slip? What else would have made Hillary depart utterly from sanity and good taste and infer that she might still have a shot if somebody had one for Obama?

Let’s be honest, it’s the great big elephant in the room. We’ve all worried about it, or at least I have, but I’m not running for office.

Maybe W will learn how to spell the word now. Ass. Ass. I. Nation.
Not even he could get that wrong.

Obama/Clinton 2008: You Complete Me

Barack Obama in Florida, 5/21/08

He takes one state, she takes the next. He reaches the younger voter. She reaches the older voter, and especially women. Exit polls show that many Dems like them both equally, but had to choose someone, so they voted for one or the other. Well, soon they won’t have to choose. While it won’t be as tear-stained and ushy-gushy as Jerry Maguire, you can still imagine it: “We live in a cynical world, a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors…” Continue reading ‘Obama/Clinton 2008: You Complete Me’

California Court Affirms Right to Gay Marriage

The Supreme Court of California ruled 4-to-3 to strike down state laws that had limited marriages to unions between a man and a woman. California is now the second state, after Massachusetts, to allow same-sex marriages.

“In view of the substance and significance of the fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship, the California Constitution properly must be interpreted to guarantee this basic civil right to all Californians, whether gay or heterosexual, and to same-sex couples as well as to opposite-sex couples,” wrote Chief Justice Ronald M. George, for the majority. Continue reading ‘California Court Affirms Right to Gay Marriage’
