To get naked in front of others while pregnant, or not to, that is the question. Actually, that should never ever be the question for any pregnant woman. (Or any woman at all, for that matter.) But apparently, that is the latest question to confront the starlets of Hollywood. See, for example, the recent travails … Continued

And for your daily dose of “body positivity” I present to you: Christie Brinkley and daughters. . . featured in Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue. Brinkley is perhaps the most famous model to grace the cover of the annual issue because she once appeared there three years in a row. Now she’s back in the magazine, … Continued
Hollywood may have gone ga ga for La La Land, but not everyone agrees it’s worth the hype. As Mark Judge points out, many have found the movie to be little more than “a dramatic facade.” But did it need to be so dramatic? It certainly is raking it in for a musical drama. Its … Continued
No thanks. I actually don’t want to see your naked or partially naked body. That seems like a reasonable enough attitude, and yet every time I open any form of social media, I am inundated with posts showing mostly nude women. I’m not talking about Kardashian-style “naked selfies.” I am talking about “body positivity” selfies, … Continued

To which Zuckerberg replied with a “no,” saying that after years of soul-searching, he now believes that “religion is very important.” He didn’t elaborate, … Continued
Oh, the irony. Lin-Manuel Miranda, playwright of Hamilton fame, is out shilling for Planned Parenthood in the name of a man who very well may never have been born if its abortion clinics had existed in his day. In case you have no idea what I am talking about, Miranda, who wrote and starred in the hottest … Continued
Another year is drawing to a close, and everyone is making their ‘best of’ lists. Last week’s Financial Times featured its Women of the Year, all of whom were, of course, serious players on the world stage like British Prime Minister Teresa May. But it got me thinking about the celebrity women who rarely get … Continued
Another reality television marriage flops. Specifically, the marriage of Tarek and Christina El Moussa of the house-flipping reality show, “Flip or Flop.” For the past week, the dramatic unraveling of their marriage, which apparently involved him chasing her out of their home with a gun and the oh-so-common nanny affair, has been splashed across both … Continued
