Bethenny Frankel Feels Like A Total Screw Up Because She’s Getting A Divorce

Bethenny Frankel Feels Like A Total Screw Up Because She's Getting A Divorce

Once upon a time Real Housewives star and businesswoman Bethenny Frankel is having a rough go of it. The mother of toddler Bryn Hoppy jumped in the usually slow holiday news cycle to announce that she was divorcing her husband of three years, Jason Hoppy. But because of her huge fan base, she also feels like she’s let — quite literally – the world down with the dissolution of her marriage. More »

Jennifer Garner Proves That She Doesn’t Need To Always Be The Perfect Hollywood Mom

Jennifer Garner Proves That She Doesnât Need To Always Be The Perfect Hollywood Mom

Call me silly, but my impression of Jennifer Garner over the past few years has been of her eternally pregnant, captured in photos with her lovely family but never really walking the red carpet or even speaking. That’s not to say she didn’t do this stuff, obviously, just that in my mind she’s become synonymous with only one image. I mean, on her birthday we even jokingly proclaimed her Hollywood’s Least Stylish Mom, for all those shots of her in jeans and sneakers. More »

Besides getting the opportunity to stare at Billy Crystal’s naturally aging face last night, one of the biggest highlights of the 2012 Oscars was the premiere of Ellen DeGeneres JCPenney commercials.

Video: Ellen Turns Her JCPenney Haters Into Motivators

As if Ellen needed to give me one more reason to love her, she’s addressing the One Million Moms boycott against her being the JCPenney spokesperson head on during today’s show. In light of Prop 8 being ruled unconstitutional yesterday (yays all around!) and the fact that the One Million Moms group is still trying to ruin her partnership with JCPenney, Ellen thought it was time to speak out.

And she did it in her typical Ellen fashion; with humor, logic and a reference to the Pillsbury Doughboy. But just because it was funny doesn’t mean that she left out the big facts, including the fact that the One Million Moms group only has 40,000 members on Facebook and that JCPenney’s getting lots of positive Pro-Ellen support for not backing down.

And there never was a person who was both gay and pro-family, let me tell you. More »
