MBA’s New Feminist Anthem?
14 Dec 2014

MBA’s New Feminist Anthem?

Columbia Business School Follies MBA students’ just produced a women’s anthem of sorts about being a “bitch in business.” Their video has gone viral and turns the tables on the “Wolf of Wall Street” attitudes that men have long been rewarded for. Will it make some uncomfortable? Yup. Did its crudeness make me uncomfortable? Some. But that’s the point. A man in business would never...

Behind the Scenes in Hollywood with Jerry Doyle and Anita Finlay

Talking with Jerry Doyle yesterday, what started as a tangent to our conversation turned into a full blown interview about Hollywood’s underbelly.  We discuss the dust-up caused by racially insensitive comments of SONY Exec Amy Pascal and Producer Scott Rudin about President Obama  and cover the waterfront on everything from the truth behind political correctness to the damage done by Reality TV.  Nothing is off...

The Terror in the Torture Report

It was several years after 9/11 before I had occasion to once again board a plane. Arriving at airport security, the sight of everyone in line, by rote, yanking off their belts and shoes shocked me enough that tears rolled down my face. That horrible day in September forever changed us. Suddenly we were no different than any other country vulnerable to terrorism. Remembering 9/11...

Does Ray Rice Get to Hide Behind His Wife?

Months ago, I predicted Ray Rice’s permanent suspension from the NFL would be overturned. Does anyone doubt that he will play pro ball again? If the NFL didn’t want Rice back, would we see a continuation of the Janay Rice apology/justification/Ray-habilitation tour broadcast by none other than The Today Show? In the rush to stage this mea culpa, we risk losing focus on the video...

Making Love Last Past Sex and a Sandwich

How can two people get – and stay – on their crazy ride together? Bill Murray crashed a bachelor party recently and offered his advice about lasting love. He said when you think you’ve found “the one,” don’t run for a marriage license. Get a passport. Travel as far as you can together to places that are “hard to get into and out of” and...

Catcalling, Halloween and “Slutty” French Fries: Have We Jumped the Shark?

It may be Halloween, but whenever top syndicated radio host Jerry Doyle and I get to talking, the sky’s the limit in our conversation.  First, Jerry starts by sharing Chris Rock’s lowdown on the top five “slutty” costumes.  Typically, we are focused on the behavior and dress of woman. But we seem to have gotten bored with “sexy nurse” and have moved on to the...

To Politicians, Your Silence Equals a Yes Vote

The midterm elections are upon us and famously have lower turnouts, but it’s more important than ever to vote.  Midterms may not be as sexy.  But they matter.  If you get even one person into office who’s better than the suit currently there, you’ve made a difference…so share my PSA: To politicians, your silence equals “yes.” Make your voice heard. Share and vote!

Did Renee Zellweger and Frances McDormand Capture Our Struggle with Aging?

I recently asked if we are now a Botox Nation, preferring Barbie and Ken’s wrinkle-free faces, boobs of steel that say Hi! to the ceiling and six pack abs to a less glamorous reality. It was both surprising and encouraging that so many readers voiced their objections to the lack of value our society places on those who age “gracefully” – or at least naturally.  Teacher...

Have We Become a Botox Nation?

Have We Become a Botox Nation?

Oscar and Tony award winning actress Frances McDormand has always relied on her immense talent, remaining committed to a Botox-free existence.  At 57, she saw the need to develop her own material since the film industry has no hunger to portray women of a certain age, as if “older” should mean “unseen.”  Soon to star as the prickly “Olive Kitteridge” in the HBO miniseries she...
