Dear 'Bachelor' Casts: You Cannot Rush True Love

Posted Jun 24th 2010 at 02:20 PM by Jane Boursaw

The news that 'The Bachelor' couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have split up raises an interesting question: Should we even care what happens at the final rose ceremony? 'The Bachelor' has run for 14 seasons, and can you guess how many of those have ended in marriage? It's really hard to keep track because there have been so many break-ups, make-ups and bachelors ending up with other peopl...

Posted Jun 23rd 2010 at 11:30 AM by Jane Boursaw

Since Michael Jackson's cardiac arrest last June, the New York Daily News reports that his estate has earned a whopping $783 million. That's staggering on many levels, not the least of which is the fact that he faced so many financial struggles while he was alive.

Antonio Banderas, Warren Beatty Reveal Secrets to Long Marriage

Posted Jun 5th 2010 at 12:00 PM by Jane Boursaw

Pop-Ed: I've always been fascinated with the concept of marriage in Hollywood. I get that it's a different world, and people marry for different reasons -- exposure, money, fame or even to prove they're not gay, which is a bit bizarre when you think about it. Sure, back in the 1930s, when Cary Grant shared a house with Randolph Scott, the notion that he might be gay would have had a major impact o...

Bret Michaels Among Reality Stars Who've Redeemed Themselves

Posted May 23rd 2010 at 04:00 PM by Jane Boursaw

Pop-ed: Every once in a while, celebrities actually redeem themselves in our eyes. Yes, it's true. Stars can come back and do something that makes us see them in a better light. I'm talking about celebs who've redeemed themselves in my eyes because of how they've behaved on reality shows. Yes, I know that reality shows are scripted and edited and all that, but you have to think that the true natur...

Posted May 4th 2010 at 11:00 AM by Jane Boursaw

Pop-Ed: It's no secret that marketing is a big part of the film and television industries, and the powers that be are always finding new and interesting ways to market their projects. Contrary to some folks, I really don't mind the rampant product placement found in movies and TV shows these days -- hey, if the employees at the Buy More on 'Chuck' want to eat Subway sandwiches, more power to th...

Pop-Ed: Why 'Biggest Loser' Makes Losing Weight More Difficult for the Rest of Us

Posted May 3rd 2010 at 10:00 AM by Jane Boursaw

I'll start off this post by saying that I'm a big fan of 'The Biggest Loser.' It's inspiring to see overweight people change their lives for the better, and they're darn courageous to do it on national TV. I can barely stand to step on a scale with just myself in the room, so I can't imagine doing it in front of millions of people every week. And those scales are so huge. There's no running and...

Pop-Ed: Why I Follow Celebs Who Use Their Twitter Powers for Good

Posted May 2nd 2010 at 05:00 AM by Jane Boursaw

If a tweet about malaria crossed your Twitter account this week, there's nothing random about it. It's a focused effort by celebrity tweeters and others to spread the word about World Malaria Day (#endmalaria) and the need for nets to keep the disease at bay. A similar Twitter campaign took place one year ago this week. Between tweets and retweets, there's no telling how many lives the Twitterv...
