Rather than using the Mimi and Nikko sex tape as a teachable moment about privacy, permanence and the longevity of Internet decisions, Harvey can't resist transforming that moment into a diatribe about shame and God's plan for women's bodies.
There's a tendency among my friends and others who see me in my element to refer to me as a "tranny," one of the words that have recently been banished from the gay lexicon. Personally, I've always regarded being called a "tranny" not as a slur but as a term of endearment.
Saving up your hard-earned cash to stash away an emergency fund? Well, it can be a hard sell. Spare cash can be hard to come by, and, after all, taking a vacation is a heck of a lot more fun. Or at least a lot of us seem to think so.
Like many military members who survive a sexual assault, the process of reporting the rape and seeking some justice was a long, despairing and ultimately fruitless effort.
We're coming up on one of my favorite times of the year: that time, just after spring breaks out but before summer begins, in which thousands of college graduates are released into the world. And as they go forth we give them lots of advice. The advice varies, sometimes conflicts, but the general idea is: Here is what you need to know in order to succeed in the world. This year my book tour is taking me to a lot of colleges, and my first piece of advice is to start by defining success for yourself -- by being clear about what you want, what you value and what you are about. But to do that, we need to abandon, or at least mitigate, some of the worst practices of the adult world that students are already mired in: burnout, sleep deprivation, stress and anxiety. This is all the more important because this generation is starting out their adult lives burdened with multiple deficits.
"Finding out that the U.S. Army regulations seemed to be geared towards eliminating Black females with natural hair was heartbreaking for me... It pains me to know that an organization that I have sacrificed so much for doesn't accept me in my natural, yet professional state."
Last week, I could only watch on television news as soldiers herded scores of my countrymen on to trucks like livestock, to be driven to detention centers. Women carrying babies struggled to climb onto the cumbersome vehicles, built not for carrying humans but cargo and commodities.
If I could speak to the person who killed Angela, I would tell them that I don't have the words to say just how sad I am. I would say, "Look what has happened to us."
I love Easter! Spring has finally sprung, with sweet smells in the air, and sweet treats for us to savor. Here are my latest favorite things.
The media just love anniversaries. But I'm wondering how many mass media outlets will pick up on a confluence of two such commemorations this coming week -- a 50th and a 20th -- which mark separate major events in the long life of a recently departed global giant.
These days when Selena Blake thinks about her native land, Jamaica, there are no images of pristine beaches and sunny skies that come to mind. Instead, she sees the ugly face of homophobia and transphobia that continues to stain Jamaica's image.
The question is not who is in charge. Rather, it is how well is the university doing in fulfilling its mission.
With the costs of basic necessities rising and wages stagnating, minimizing unnecessary and wasteful spending is more important than ever.
The baiting and the assault on Obama will get even uglier. But it won't change one hard fact: that when it comes to race baiting, the GOP will always have the market cornered on that -- and millions know it.
In the business of higher education, we must educate students for jobs that may not yet exist to solve problems not yet known.
Based on her real life, Drescher plays a woman who re-enters the dating world after finding out that her husband is gay. It focuses on how she juggles her relationship with her current boyfriend and ex-husband post-divorce. Moreno and Walden will play her parents, while Arnold stars as Drescher's best friend.
Arnold, a native of Queens, N.Y., is known for her roles as Pamela James on the Fox sitcom 'Martin' and the family matriarch Rochelle on the UPN/CW sitcom 'Everybody Hates Chris,' which ended its run in 2009 after four seasons.
Recently released on home video is Arnold's latest film, 'The Lena Baker Story,' which is based on the true story of an impoverished and uneducated African American woman's struggles in rural 1940s Georgia.
Convicted and sentenced for the accidental killing of Elliot Arthur, the tyrannical, pistol-packing white man she was hired to care for – in a trial and deliberation that together lasted less than four hours – Baker was only 44 years old when she died in 1945, the only woman to be sentenced to death by electric chair in the state of Georgia.
'Happily' Divorced' is being co-written and executive produced by Drescher and her ex-husband, 'The Nanny's co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson.
In late 2010, Arnold appeared on 'The Fran Drescher Show,' where she talked about life after 'Everybody Hates Chris' and being a single parent.
