Monica Lewinsky became infamous for her affair with then-President Bill Clinton. So infamous that I, as a fifth grader, got sent home from school on Halloween because she inspired my costume.
Yesterday, just two days before World AIDS Day, Hillary Clinton rolled out plans to help rid the world of AIDS. While efforts will focus largely in sub-Saharan Africa, where providing access to medication is a major priority, we're not off the hook at home.
Between the Democratic National Convention and the MTV Video Music Awards, this week was replete with public displays of celebrity affection. And while some of them made us swoon with envy, others made us totally sick to our collective stomach.
Clinton remembers her mom ahead of Mother's Day, telling a crowd in New York that her mother, Dorothy Rodham, grew up in neglect.
You'd think attending a conference about international issues that impact women, where forced marriage and honor killings were discussed, would be depressing, since we still have so far to go. But as the 3rd annual Women in the World summit last weekend, hosted by Newsweek and The Daily Beast, wrapped up to the tune of Aretha Franklin's "Respect," I felt uplifted.
In hearing the stories coming out of Penn State about the years of lack of follow through on the reports of coach Jerry Sandusky’s clearly inappropriate conduct with young men, it is hard not to wonder how this could have happened. How did all those otherwise caring and intelligent men who either witnessed or heard about what was going on just put it out of their minds? How did they do that? As Mark Twain so famously quipped, "Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt." I have started to wonder if it might be a river in Pennsylvania.
By Kaitlyn Monteiro With this year’s 2010 midterm elections coming to a close today, we aren’t seeing the celebrity star power that we witnessed in 2008. Make no mistake; it’s not the Presedential election but it’s still an important time to vote. According to experts, Hollywood is staying home this election period. Why the lack of star power now? Where’s Brad and Angelina? Demi and Ashton?
Weren’t invited to Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky’s wedding in Rhinebeck this past weekend? Us neither. However, thanks to photos the Clinton family released and some ace reporting by the Washington Post, we have the scoop on the former First Daughter’s wedding, from her dress to Bill Clinton’s toast!
Much has been made of Chelsea Clinton and fiancé Marc Mezinsky‘s interfaith relationship. Although they both come from similar political families and attended Stanford University, Chelsea, 30, was raised as a Methodist while 32-year-old Marc, is Jewish. However, unlike fellow WASP-turned-JAP Ivanka Trump, who studied with a New York rabbi and converted to Judaism in order to marry Jared Kushner last year, Chelsea has made no public plans to convert, which makes us wonder who will officiate her supposed $3 million wedding later this week?
While the world may be eagerly anticipating former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton's upcoming wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, there is one woman who is not. Emn Haddad-Friedman, a Brooklyn-based school teacher, is getting married on July 31 in Rhinebeck, NY, the same day and rumored location where Chelsea Clinton will be tying the knot. The only problem? Chelsea's reported wedding location, a sprawling, 50-acre estate called Astor Court, sits directly in between Emn's ceremony location and her reception hall. And if the list of politicians and other VIPs who are set to attend the wedding is true, most likely the road that Emn's guest would need to take to get from point A. to point B. will be closed down.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Africa this week, fielding marriage proposals for her daughter, Chelsea. According to the Associated Press, a Kenyan man wrote to Bill Clinton in 2000 and offered him 40 goats and 20 cows for his only daughter's hand in marriage.
The always reliable National Enquirer alleges that before her Senate run, Hillary Clinton was ready to divorce Bill Clinton. The specious tale goes that she had a laundry list of Clintonian dalliances including actresses Julie Bowen and Saffron Burrows. Too weird to be true is our guess. Entertaining nonetheless.
