The Ugly Truth About How Not to Make a Romantic Comedy

The Ugly Truth starring Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler is neither romantic or a comedy. It is, however; completely stupid, boring, predictable, NOT funny, not believable, or romantic even for the biggest fan of the "RomCom". Recently I read a bad review of the film and in that review they talked about the formula used; strong independent-man-hating-self-hating-single woman desperate for love and romance falls for bad boy obnoxious jerk type~BORING. That said, How To Loose A Guy In Ten Days also has these two people in the leads, yet it is both funny and romantic. You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, Bridget Jones, etc. etc. . . need I go on?
This film wasn't even remotely interesting, and even the worst offenders of "chick-flicks" are better than this. The story was full of holes and weak. The acting was fine, but nothing comedic about either of them. The scene when Abby (Katherine) has an orgasm at dinner because she is wearing vibrating undies is so badly done, I was embarrassed for her~the actress. It was a poor imitation of the fake orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally, and not funny at all.
I didn't care about either of them, and or if they got together. The chemistry was non-existent and the whole film just fell flat.
However, at least it was a great example of how NOT to write a romantic comedy. If you like Katherine, rent 27 Dresses which is basically the same story told better. If you like Gerard Butler and you want to fall in love with him, rent P.S. I Love You~and P.S. Gerard, we forgive you for your shitty Irish accent because you're so lovable in this film.
I'm just sayin'~save yourself 12 bucks and 2 hours of your life and skip this one.


  1. thanks for the heads up...not that I would go and see this :P

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Where Has Customer Service Gone? Taos Footwear is Horrible

AVOID TAOS FOOTWEAR unless you want to be treated like shit.
Usually I like to take the high road and let things go, but after thinking about this for the last 24 hours, I'm afraid to say that I can't not tell what happened when I returned a pair of shoes that didn't fit me to Taos footwear.

First of all, I love their shoes. I ordered four pairs at $100 or more in less than a month, but they don't care about that, they just needed to be right and right meant downright abusive and awful to a paying customer.

Beginning of June, I order a pair of Taos shoes and love them.
End of June, I order a second pair, the Hey Jute because they were on sale for only $100 instead of $130.

The canvas is super tight so I call them up and speak to a woman, Lisa I believe is her name, she was amazing BTW, she is the only one who is decent at this company-or at least who I have talked to.  She said if they were hurting my feet to return them, but they didn't pay for shipping. I wasn…
