SHOCKED.

NOT! So, it has been reported that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have finally stopped pretending to be in love. The two put out a statement with PEOPLE  saying that they have decided to go their separate ways. We all saw this coming, I mean no one is seriously surprised by this… are they?

Ben’s season was actually the first season I have ever watched of The Bachelor so I took it very seriously (SHAMEFUL). Anway, I was a Jojo fan and was so hurt – just like Jojo – when he sent her home IN THE WORST WAY POSSIBLE! As soon as he picked Lauren I knew they were never going to last – not because I hated her (because I do) but because when they were together it was SO FAKE.

I even watched that- less than entertaining –  FreeForm show, I mean it hurt me to watch. It was so incredibly boring that they had to bring in other former contestants from the show – it didn’t help much. The show made it even more clear these two were just not to be but hey I’d stay in a relationship for a check *Kanye shrug*.

All I am looking forward to is Lauren’s tell – all book about how much she hates Jojo and feel Ben never got over her. Also, would LOVE it if she caught him stalking Jojo and Jordans Instagram. I am sure Lauren is upset but once Chris Harrison calls her with a book deal those tears will dry up!

Read More.

With everything going on in the world is it nice to just escape and go to a different place. I usually do that with my TV shows but sometimes I need a break.

I am sure it is hard to believe that a girl so obsessed and consumed with pop culture, reality tv and fashion enjoys reading. BUT SURPRISE, I do – actually I have made a goal for myself this year to read 15 books and I am up to 7. SO yeah, you can say I’m some kind of genius… NOT.

giphy1

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite books I think you all will enjoy!

  • Luckiest Girl Alive 
    • I finished this book in a week! Such a page turner – the beginning is a little slow but once it picks up it doesn’t slow down until the last page.
  • Maybe In Another Life 
    • This book gave me so many feelings about life and planning for the future. It was my first read of 2017. If you are already getting ready for summer and picking beach reads this is one! It has it all: love, friendship, heartbreak, loss –  EVERYTHING.
  • Good As Gone 
    • Talk about ANXIETY – basically Jon Benet if she would have lived…. too soon? Whatever,  this book focuses on kidnapping and a mother’s lost connection with her daughter.
  • In a Dark, Dark Wood
    • A girl at work told me to read this and I am so glad I listened! Bachelorette party, love triangle and murder????? What more can you ask for?!

Give these books a try and add them to your reading list,  you will not be disappointed and if you are… oh well. Also, if you enjoy reading and keeping up with your books, GoodReads is a great website! You can add all the books you have read/are reading while looking for your next book and checking reviews.

Enjoy y’all,

The Hills: Pregnancy 101

I have said it before and I will say it again… I am OBSESSED WITH THE HILLS! By far on of the best TV shows- whether it was scripted or not. And if it was it deserved every Emmy and Golden Globe.

Anyway – it has been 10 years since the show ended and we I find myself looking for a reunion, spin-off – honestly, ANYTHING to have LC,  Heidi, Whitney, Audrina and the rest of the gang all on my screen again. By now I think we finally have something – BABIES! Half of the cast is freaking pregnant.

Lauren Conrad was the first to announce her pregnancy via Instagram – that in itself had people bouncing off the walls. I mean we could have an LC jr. on our hand’s guys!!!! Then Whitney followed ( from what I recall a few days or a week later) that she herself was pregnant! What are the odds that both Teen Vogue interns are preggers at the SAME DAMN TIME? A month or two later Jason ( LC’s ex) announced that his wife/gf/ IDGAF who she is… BUT she is carrying a child as well.

TO TOP IT ALL OFF – last week, Speidi announced that they are FINALLY pregnant. I mean we are being PUNK’d right?? WTF Ashton come out already I am totally on to you! Anway, I feel that this calls for a celebration or a reunion at best, am I right? With Audrina almost a year into being a mother and Kristen already with 3 kids ( GOD BLESS HER), how can we not bring them all together? I even think I heard that Heidi’s sister ( the wannabe hills star) Holly had a baby a few years ago. And I guess we can invite Lo along for the ride… Sorry, Lo!

I think we all need to write into MTV until they give us what we deserve! Because of whatever that anniversary special – the long Kohls commercial for Lauren’s clothing line –  we got this summer from them was BS! Give us a redo MTV… we need it, we want it and we have all earned it!

If you want to hear more about The Hills cast and all things this week in pop culture, take a listen to my podcast… here!

Stop Blaming Kendall Jenner

Okay, so by now we have ALL seen the cringe-worthy Pepsi ad featuring Kendall Jenner. If you haven’t seen it by now you are basically SOL because Pepsi has taken it down because of all the backlash the commercial has gotten thus far.

In my honest opinion, the 2 minute Pepsi commercial was not THAT BAD but those last 30 seconds is really what sent people over the edge and I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. Kendall handing over the Pepsi to the mall cop that was supposed to be a police office was just bad not because he was a cop but because of who she is, sadly. I am sure Pepsi had nothing but good intentions – things just didn’t go as planned or maybe they did and that is the problem.

Speaking of the problem, Kendall Jenner is not that! Pepsi is, it was their creative team, their idea and so on. YES, Kendall is 21 years old and maybe could have a better judgment call BUT if Pepsi offers you a GLOBAL commercial with a VERY high check are you going to turn it down? I didn’t think so. SO STOP blaming Kendall and blame the people who made this entire commercial possible… PEPSI.

If you would like to know more of my thoughts on this situation go take a listen to my podcast this week,  here!

It’s October 3rd

If you do not understand the reference to today’s blog post you are either a) too young, b) too old or c) an idiot. Whichever one you are – you don’t belong here!

Happy Monday y’all – let’s jump right into it! So if you haven’t heard by now Princess Kim Kardashian-West was held at gunpoint in her Parisian hotel room last night. How you ask?  GREAT FREAKING QUESTION. For all the details see E NEWS (click). Side bar – I have literally being texting friends a play by play of this story all morning I CANNOT TYPE IT AGAIN – so just check out E News, they explain it better anyway!

Is it just me or is it strange that someone so FAMOUS was alone in their hotel room with NO SECURITY? This is very scary no matter who it happens to anyone but especially someone who is so freaking rich. Every hour we are getting more updates on this story but it is just so hard to believe that this happened to someone who you would think would be very well secured. Now I am not pointing fingers BUT I think this may be a lesson for any celeb (mostly Kardashians/Jenners) to not show their every MOVE on social media. I didn’t personally watch Kim’s Snapchat story last night but she showed that she was alone in her room facetiming her brother Rob… Not smart Kim!

post-56918-its-not-my-fault-youre-like-in-evmh

The good thing is Kim is safe and “unharmed”, also North and Saint were not with her. Yes, her engagement was stolen but she can get another – I mean Kanye did just buy her a second one? The point is Kim will be traumatized for a while but she is still rich and ALIVE… so let’s all relax and the fans with #PrayforKim just stop please.

HOLD THE PHONE! Carrie Bradshaw is Coming Back to the Screen?

YUP, you read that correct – the one and ONLY Carrie Bradshaw MIGHT eventually ( IN THE FAR FUTURE) come back to us!

SJP (SARAH JESSICA PARKER DUH) told the Press Association that it is a possibility (that hasn’t been discussed) but it can TOTALLY happen. Everyone is on board – and why wouldn’t they be. Sex and the City is iconic and not just because of the fashion and the dates but because of the women! They were strong but at the same time vulnerable, Carrie and the gang was – and still is  – everything you and your girlfriends want to be!

I have seen every SATC episode more than 5 times and the the first movie I know every word to. Even though the sequal wasn’t the best and definitly can’t hold anything next to the first one, I would still go to see any show or movie connected to the series. Come on, think about it – Carrie, Samantha, Charolette and Miranda in 2016! Where are they in their careers and their relationship and WITH EACHOTHER?

In my eyes they have all transformed with technology – I am sure it was difficult, especially for Carrie ( I mean homegirl didn’t know to back up her computer). Carrie has turned her book into a daily blog/lifestyle website something along the lines of Goop but much more personal. Samantha is still running the PR scene but I hope has hired a few people to work under her ( was it just me or did she work alone?). Charolette is super MOM for sure and is probably in every high society organization there is on the Upper East Side – very Lily Vanderwoodsen with less scandals of course. And the queen of feminism, Miranda has opened her own firm run by women and for women in Brooklyn because what else would she have done!

But the real question is where are they having breakfast/brunch now because their go-to spot has closed down! All I know is that wherever these ladies are in life they are doing ittogether.
