ABC to film ‘Everyday Health’ at Pittsburgh Salon

30 Aug

ABC will be in town Thursday, September 1st, 2011 to film a new reality TV show entitled Everyday Health. They will film at a salon cut-a-thon that will aim to spread awareness of psoriasis and get the message across that this autoimmune condition is NOT contagious. Proceeds will benefit the National Psoraisis Foundation.

Newlywed, reality starlet, and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian was recently diagnosed with Psoriasis, bringing some more awareness to the condition; and pro golfer Phil Mickelson lives with psoriatic arthritis, a related condition.

If you wish to take part in the cut-a-thon (remember — you may end up on TV, so be mindful of whether or not that is something that you are comfortable with) call 412.471.1575.

Here is more information from the National Psoriasis Foundation regarding the event:

 

 

“Join ABC’s “Everyday Health” and get a free haircut!

People with psoriasis often face discrimination at hair salons because others fear their disease is contagious. Show these people that you can’t catch psoriasis.

Join ABC on Thursday, Sept. 1, for the filming of a new reality show, “Everyday Health,” at Verve Wellness for a special “cut-a-thon” fundraiser to benefit the National Psoriasis Foundation. Get a haircut between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and you could be on national TV showing your support for the millions of Americans with psoriatic diseases.

Thanks to the generosity of ABC, anyone with psoriasis in the Pittsburgh area can get their hair cut for free during this event.

Call Verve Wellness at 412.471.1575 to make an appointment during Thursday’s cut-a-thon.”

 

Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Headpiece – Were You a Fan?

22 Aug

This is hard-hitting news! (Kidding…)

… Sure, a lot of people would rather gouge their eyes out than listen to more “news” surrounding the Kardashian-Humphries nuptials  that took place this past weekend. However, I’m not one of them. SORRY! I happen to be a fan of both Kim AND weddings, so, I was elated to see photos from the (gorgeous!) ceremony.

One thing — aside from her “why-is-she-even-famous” status — that has been causing somewhat of a ruckus, though, was her headpiece. So, what were your thoughts on it – yay or nay?  Like or dislike?

It wouldn’t suit my personal tastes, but, I think that it is appropriate given Kardashian’s Armenian roots. Kind of gives her a “Princess Jasmine” a la Aladdin feel, right?

Take a peek:

The Year of the Cheating Heart (Talking to you, Tiger, Jesse, Reggie…the list goes on…)

26 Mar

South Park did a spoof on it. It is a “Hot Topic” on The View almost daily. What, you ask?

Famous leading cheating men. (See their ‘sex addiction’ spoof here. Mature content. But funny.)

There’s been political scandal after political scandal – John Edwards, Mark Sanford, and Elliot Spitzer to name a few.

There’s been celebrity breakups all over the news, fueled by men cheating on their significant others — most recently, David Letterman, Tiger Woods, Jesse James, and, now, possibly Reggie Bush.

Sure, it’s also the year of the IDIOT man, too (Chris Brown, anyone? Kanye West? I’m sure I’m forgetting others, lol!) and the “alleged” idiot men (Ben Roethlisberger, anyone? Sorry. I’m a diehard Steelers fan, but guilty or innocent, he puts himself in one precarious and irresponsible situation after another. but the whole “wandering eye” thing in particular has been taken to a whole new level of disrespect, and, if you ask me, a whole new level of pathetic.

Is sex addiction real? Sure. Is it an excuse for every time a wealthy or famous person cheats? No.

Are some of these mistresses’ tales just paid-for tabloid fodder without a grain of truth? Sure. Are most of their claims true, though? My guess is that it’s very likely.

Unfortunately, in my humble opinion, many men are prone to stray, anyway. Add money, power, and fame into the mix and the whole situation just becomes the proverbial recipe for disaster. The always-growing egos and endless sense of entitlement that these people in the limelight face can’t make it easy to resist temptation. However, I do not think that fame and celebrity gives anyone a right to balk on their moral code of conduct. It is so disrespectful!

And these people aren’t having one slip-up. For many of them, it’s woman after woman. Sometimes, there’s even some babymaking involved. Always, there is a scandal involved. What happened to commitment, loyalty, trust, respect, and common courtesy? Can Cheetah Woods redeem himself? Can Jesse James really claim that he TRULY LOVES Sandra Bullock?

As much as I envy the lifestyles of the rich and famous, I do feel bad for some of these women. No one deserves the heart- wrenching shock that an affair can bring. It is like these guys have blinders on; blithely ignoring the feelings and emotions of their partner. To me, it is heartless, and, above all, inconsiderate. Humiliating. A disgrace to their loved ones, a tarnish to their image, and I believe that this type of behavior makes a mockery of solid and loving, committed, and healthy relationships.

After all, in this country we idolize celebrities. But just because the stars are screwing up doesn’t mean all men are so-called sex addicts with 10 mistresses and BlackBerries filled with naughty text messages. Additionally, I’m sure there are women out there, too, who are involved in these types of scandals. (There’s either not as many … or they simply are a little more crafty about not getting caught.)

Either way, to me, it boils down to this. For one, these men are jerks. I mean, cheating on America’s Sweetheart? With a risqué tattoo model? Really? (I mean, I have 3 tattoos, but to me, Sandra is just the epitome of sweetness, class, and grace.)  Sandra Bullock seemed SO genuinely in love with Jesse James….and in turn, everybody loves HER. And cheating on a Swedish Supermodel? Umm….golf club wielding or not, what hope does that give the rest of us normal girls? Now, I hear (as-of-now) unconfirmed reports that Reggie Bush may have been having an affair while dating Kim Kardashian, who, despite being famous for nothing, I adore. Are these rumors? Regardless, they HAVE indeed, split, or are at least taking a break. John Edwards has a baby to his mistress while cheating on his cancer-stricken wife. That’s classy. Sanford calls his “other woman” his “soulmate”….that had to make the woman he vowed his life to feel just fabulous! It’s all such a shame.

These women need to focus on loving themselves first, picking up the pieces and moving forward. I just hope that this type of behavior doesn’t become a trend. While infidelity exists in all walks of life, its one celebrity fad I don’t want to totally infiltrate the mainstream. If people are unhappy, why cheat? End the relationship, part and go your separate ways, and THEN – and only then – go do your own thing. It’s a lot less painful than “having your cake and eating it, too” … with 5, 6, 7, or 12 different women. (Tiger.)

What do you think – something in the water these past few years?

** Have you heard the Reggie Bush / Kim K. rumors? Do you think that it is true? What about Jesse James’ alleged 3 more mistresses coming forward? Happy that Tiger is returning to golf?  Which breakup/affair is the worst and/or most shocking to you? I’d love to hear your comments! **
