‘Sex & the City’ sets us up for a swing and a miss

on
While I am by and large one of the biggest fans of Sex and the City, I’ve come to a realization. Sex and the City has the possibility of ruining young women’s lives. I know, it pains me to even write it. But hear me out. Carrie spends six seasons and one full-length movie (and […] [Read More]

The reality of reality television

on
So, I tuned into Fox’s premiere of “More To Love,” a reality dating show for the “traditionally built.” To be honest, I mean, other than a few pounds, it basically replicates “The Bachelor.” Luke Conley, 26, is Mr. Eligible, a real-estate broker weighing in at 330-pounds who is looking for love.

on
Imagine this: A relationship that has everything – the dates, the long talks, the kisses, the food sharing, the late nights and the early mornings, all without a glitch. Well, one glitch.
