Alanis Morissette Blogs About Attachment Parenting

In case you hadn’t heard, Alanis Morissette is a huge proponent of so-called Attachment Parenting. In the wake of that controversial Time magazine feature on Attachment Parenting, Alanis went on the record to proclaim that she is a proud attachment parent. She even told ABC News that she will happily breastfeed her son Ever Imre until he was 6 years old if he wants to. Yeah, she’s serious. Today, we get to read excerpts from a guest blog written for The Huffington Post by Alanis on — you guessed it — attachment parenting. Depending on where you stand on the issue, you’ll likely greatly agree or vehemently disagree with her position. But one thing’s for sure, Alanis‘s argument is well stated in the following treatise.

Greta Gerwig Anyone? Watch An Exclusive Scene From Lola Versus

 

I’m not sure, but I think Greta Gerwig is becoming kind of a big deal. Commercially, that is. On the Indie scene she is, without a doubt kind of a big deal. Her new movie Lola Versus premieres this Friday and I can’t help but get excited about this quirky-looking rom-com-ish flick. Check out the trailer and a hilarious exclusive scene aptly titled, “Did You Just Have Sex With That Rollerblader?”

Cissy Houston Is Writing A Book About Whitney Houston

It is being reported today that Cissy Houston, mother of Whitney Houston, is penning a memoir about her late daughter … which should really come as no big surprise to anyone. Cissy has remained relatively quiet since the death of Whitney earlier this year (save for one brief interview she gave in March) so it makes sense that she would want to tell her story of Whitney‘s life in her own way, on her own terms. Click below to learn more about Cissy‘s planned memoir. More »

Ice Cream Social

My last night here in Detroit wasn’t all that exciting … despite the fact that we *tried* to make it exciting … well, we talked about it at least. The plan was to see my parents, then go out to dinner, then see a movie. OK, not really exciting but more exciting than what actually happened. Instead, my night went like this — see my parents, grab take-out for dinner … eat ice cream in bed … fall asleep. Yep, that’ was pretty much it. More »

Jerry O’Connell Cast As Herman Munster In ‘The Munsters’ Reboot TV Series

Back in October of 2010 we first learned of the plan to reboot and bring back the classic 1960′s TV series The Munsters to network TV. Earlier this year, back in March, we learned not only that this new version of The Munsters — now titled Mockingbird Lane — is going into production but also that comic actor Eddie Izzard nabbed the role of Grandpa Munster. Today we learn officially that Jerry O’Connell has been cast in the leading male role of Herman Munster. I’m guessing his sizable forehead had something to do with his casting ;) More »

I’m taking all of your questions about summer fashion, summer lovin’, and my film People Like Us, which comes out on June 29th.”
