Oscars Activism: Right or Wrong?

By now, Patricia Arquette’s Oscar speech on behalf of women’s equality has gone viral. As much applause as she received for her remarks, the backlash has been loud, too, i.e., she was wrong because her speech excluded certain groups, because she is wealthy, because she only spoke of mothers. Whether or not Arquette erred in making her statement during an Awards telecast, by expecting her...

Beyond Obama’s Tepid Grammy PSA on Domestic Violence

While the Grammys only dipped a toe in the water of stopping domestic violence, activist Brooke Axtell made clear at Sunday night’s event that she was able to survive an abusive situation and later thrive because of one supportive voice. Apart from the frustrating juxtaposition of President Obama’s PSA on stopping violence while abuser and Grammy nominee Chris Brown sat in the audience, the important...

Is Governor Jerry Brown a Successful Leader?

Would you call Governor Jerry Brown a successful leader?  California’s tax rates are high. Is the sticker shock worth it? When Brown re-took office in the midst of fiscal crisis, we were asked to bear “temporary” higher taxes on the promise that he would balance the budget.  How much of a chance would you be willing to take on such a message? Clearly, Brown has...

Golden Globes Find Their Humanity

Forget the glitz of the Golden Globes. What emerged from Sunday’s telecast were some moving moments dedicated to diversity, community and unity. Led by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, this was not business as usual. Jerry Doyle and I discuss a few of the best moments, where those winning awards offered reminders that acceptance of those different than ourselves matters. As an aside, it was...

What’s Being Done In Our Name?

The Senate’s CIA “torture” report has elicited little more than a collective shrug from the American people, if our most prominent news sources are to be believed.  I thought perhaps Americans are so stressed in their own lives, and beaten down by the endless scandal-mongering inherent in the 24-hour news cycle, they don’t want the responsibility of one more pound of weight.  Yet, according to...

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...

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...

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...

Anita Finlay and Jerry Doyle Talk Tech Giants Freezing Women’s Eggs! 10/15/2014

When I read the headline that Apple and Facebook are now offering to freeze female employees’ eggs as a perk of employment, I thought I had entered the Twilight Zone! Is that taking progress a bit too far?  Is this move a way for companies to push women to push their choice to have children later and later in life? Convenient for the company.  Not necessarily...
