Just a quick post to share some of the the fun that my friends and I enjoyed on Thanksgiving and to talk a bit about some of the many things that I am thankful for this holiday season. For the second year in a row, my friends and I participated in the annual Detroit Turkey Trot race that takes place in downtown Detroit every Thanksgiving morning. Of the approximately 470 races that take place on Thanksgiving day all across the country, the Detroit race is among the most popular (last year it was the third most popular behind races in San Diego and Sacramento, CA). It was cold last year but nowhere near as cold as it was this year. The high temp early Thanksgiving morning ranged between 21 and 23 degrees F. It was only when Mark and I (the first in our group to race, we did the 10K run … the rest of our group did the 5K run an hour later) were walking to the starting line that we realized that it had begun to snow. And if you can believe it, the 31st annual Detroit Turkey Trot this year was one of the funnest races I’ve ever run in my life! More »
Earlier in the week I saw this trailer for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and I couldn’t help but get all warm and gooey inside. Last year Trent shared photos from the film’s set and now we have our first look at some actual footage. Ben Stiller‘s new movie (he’s both directing and starring) is being hailed as the new Forrest Gump and, while I think that’s a pretty bold claim, this first trailer does give off that ‘life is like a box o’ chocolates vibe.‘ Stiller plays Mitty, a guy Anybody else excited for this one to come out?
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty hits theatres Christmas Day.
I don’t know about you, but I sooo vowed I wasn’t cooking a bunch of food this Thanksgiving. Whatever. Pies are in the oven as we speak… le sigh. But let me tell you, nobody is goin’ in like Martha Stewart, lmao! She shared a photo of her baking marathon and that ish looks so cray, I can’t even. Mariah Carey, Kelly Rowland, and lots of others are getting in the spirit too. Peep the gallery for more!
The third season of Scandal is in full effect, and the levels of cray the show has reached are just out of control. Folks comin’ back from the dead, family secrets unveiled, Abby‘s eyeliner situation taking off in powerful ways– it’s been a great time. We’ve learned a lot from this show in a few short seasons (like, if you want someone killed right, you have to kill them yourself), so here are just a few of the big life lessons season three has taught us. Peep the gallery for more!

A new report is going around today that claims that actor Tom Cruise is “on cloud nine” after he went on a date with Orange Is The New Black actress and fellow Scientologist Laura Prepon. The report comes out of Europe even tho this alleged date took place in Los Angeles. No photos of the pair together have emerged. HMMM. Sound fishy? Well, yes, it does but that’s not necessarily proof that the story is made-up. Cruise‘s rep has already denied the claim that he and Laura are dating so … yeah, that’s probably the confirmation that we need that these two Scientology lovebirds are actually hooking up. HMMM.

Last week we learned that Rihanna met up with Eminem in Detroit, MI so that the pair could film the music video for his song The Monster but that video ain’t quite ready for release yet … BECAUSE, Em just released his video for his current single Rap God. You may recall that we got our first listen of Rap God in October and now we get to see the visuals that Eminem created for the song. As you can see in the video embedded above, Em is channeling the 80′s character Max Hedroom as he spits his rapid-fire (and controversial) lyrics. Em fans should be impressed. His critics? Yeah, probably not so much. Pick a side and enjoy … or not.

Back in early June we learned out of the blue that actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and boyfriend Brian Hallisay were pregnant with their first child together. A couple of days later, we learned that the couple had gotten themselves engaged to be married. Today we learn that J. Love‘s Bump Watch has come to a close because she gave birth to a daughter yesterday! And, to add to her good news, we also learn that Jennifer and Brian went and got themselves secretly married ahead of their baby’s birth day (and by secretly, I mean they got married like any other couple on Earth but because they didn’t have a huge celebrity wedding with photos and a press release, their nuptials have been deemed “secret”). Click below to find out what the newlyweds decided to name their baby girl and learn all the known deets about her birth and Jen and Brian‘s wedding. More »
I made my way to Detroit yesterday safely, soundly and without one hint of delay. Despite the Thanksgiving holiday being the busiest travel time of the year, I managed to avoid all of the mess that goes along with it this time around (I even managed to avoid the horrible traffic in LA due to President Obama‘s arrival in the city). My flight was easy breezy, no complaints at all. As soon as I deplaned, I realized how cold it really is in these here parts right now. The cold isn’t really a problem usually because I tend to stay inside when I’m here at home. Early tomorrow morning tho, my friends (Sarah, Mark, Agnes, Ken, Adriana) and I are planning on running the annual Turkey Trot race tomorrow in downtown Detroit (the third largest Thanksgiving day race in the country, btw). The temperature will be in the low 20s … if it’s windy, it will feel like the temps are in the teens. As a result, we are ALL freaking out about the cold. More »
