I Love Oprah, But I Don’t Think She Should Be President

I Love Oprah, But I Don’t Think She Should Be President.jpg

By Jillian Stacia

Before we start, let’s get one thing straight: I love Oprah. I am a big Oprah fan. I’ve watched her show, listened to her podcasts, joined her book club. I’m all about Super Soul Sunday and Dr. Phil and the OWN network. I think Oprah is an enlightened, kind, and intelligent individual. But I don’t think she should run for president, simply because she has no experience.

I know “experience” seems like an outdated concept these days. When it comes to presidential candidates, it’s more like an added bonus instead of a requirement. Call me old fashioned, but I think the president of the United States should have some previous experience in government. Continue reading

We Should Be Friends

Hollywood

By De & Kate

We first heard Miranda Lambert’s new hit, “We Should Be Friends” a few days ago and quickly got to nodding and thinking, we should be friends! Although, to be honest, we’ve been singing that tune for a while now and would readily jump at any opportunity to put on a pair of old cowboy boots and kick it with her.

While we love any celeb who has managed to keep it real and stay down to earth in the public eye, we especially love these 5 ladies: Continue reading

Turning 27 And Accepting Imperfection In The Public Eye

Lily Collins

By Casey Rose Frank

Lily Collins would not be surprised to hear that her roles in movies like “Mirror, Mirror,” “The Mortal Instruments,” and “Stuck in Love,” have cemented her in my mind as perpetually 18. The actress, who turns 27 today, addresses her young face and the pros and cons of her perpetual youthfulness as just one topic in a collection of essays published last week, “Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me.Continue reading

By Eliza David

Pause. Think about your favorite celeb bosses.

Who in Tinseltown has set epic goals, created strides in their own lane, and paved the way for you & others? Oprah Winfrey, Tina Fey, Tyra Banks, Kimora Lee Simmons – these are a few of my faves. These women have a brand all their own and work it for everything. I sit in awe of their words, fashion, and overall boss appeal. When it comes to men, however, no male celeb has fueled my hustle more than a man born Shawn Corey Carter. Continue reading

The Evolution of Our Eternal Crush on Leonardo DiCaprio

By De and Kate

Of all of our childhood celebrity crushes, few have withstood the test of time. Sure, we look back on celebs like Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Rider Strong, or Devon Sawa, and can remember plastering the interior of our lockers with torn-out posters from Tiger Beat or J-14, but what the heck happened to those guys? They sure haven’t made their way into our crushes today.  Continue reading

By De and Kate

Meeting your future sister-in-law can be an intimidating experience. Lucky for us, the introduction was made easier by an instant connection over reality TV. More specifically, Season 7 of The Bachelorette. Upon meeting, we spent hours watching Ashley Hebert in her quest for love and took turns talking (perhaps sometimes yelling) at the TV, as our relationship advice needed to be heard.  Continue reading
