Bravo for this patriotic tour de force... Sure it has flaws, but it packs a wallop of nostalgia! Who can remember those air raid sirens during WWII? Our nation needed faith and this film delivers the feelings of this period. This alone separates Captain America from the glut of superhero films. The nonstop action (more…)

Thank God for Betty Ford

When I woke up last Friday, I was confronted with the news that Former First Lady, Betty Ford, had died. Tears came to my eyes. Her loss will be felt by so many.

Her vision and mission of the Betty Ford Center saved countless recovering alcoholics and addicts. An icon, she helped reduce the (more…)

There would be no Bad Teacher without the great performance of Cameron Diaz who holds this film together. Justin Timberlake in a thankless role gives a flat unlikeable performance and allows Diaz to steal every scene they have together. Her legs-forever-beauty and impeccable timing in her delivery of most often outrageous and raunchy lines (more…)

Congressman Weiner Is a Sex Addict

June 15, 2011

Anthony Weiner obviously is suffering from a form of sexual addiction. A disease, not unlike alcoholism, compulsive gambling or eating disorders such as bulimia, anorexia. We don’t laugh at cancer patients. Why should we laugh at someone who is suffering from the disease of sexual addiction?

How do I know Congressman Weiner is (more…)

The Truth about Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers

June 14, 2011

Recently while watching "The Return of the Pink Panther," I recalled the good times I spent with Peter Sellers.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Housekeeper Crazy? He Made Her So!

June 1, 2011

TMZ’s Harvey Levin reported with a sly smile that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s housekeeper, Mildred Patty Baena, was wearing Maria Shriver’s clothing during their affair. Baena’s size is perhaps four times larger than Shriver’s -- which makes this an impossibility. Maybe he’s talking about Shriver’s accessories rather than her (more…)

Arnold Schwarzenegger, a PR Machine Out of Spin

May 15, 2011

In the early seventies, I was invited to dinner to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger by Bobby Zarem, N.Y.'s powerful publicist. We met at Manhattan's Elaine's Restaurant.

Schwarzenegger was polite, not at all flirtatious and a gentleman as he looked around the restaurant and took in the powerbrokers one at a time as I (more…)

Dueling Cary Grants

May 4, 2011

Cary Grant, born Archibald Alexander Leach, frequently crossed paths with my ex-husband, artist Ron Mallory, and me during the early '70s. "He was patient and debonair." Ron said. "There was no difference between his screen persona or his persona in real life."

Grant had visited Ron's art gallery Esther Robles in Beverly Hills (more…)
