Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins by Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins by Kathy Griffin

I absolutely love Kathy Griffin. For those unfamiliar with her comedic style, Griffin has made a name for herself dishing on and making fun of celebrities.  Now, in KATHY GRIFFIN’S CELEBRITY RUN-INS, she compiles an encyclopedia style index of some of her best celebrity encounters. Who knew she was BFF with Cher? Or that Donald […]


Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

I love intelligent, witty celebrity autobiographies and Anna Kendrick’s SCRAPPY LITTLE NOBODY is a wonderful example of this. The thing about Anna Kendrick is that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Therefore, this autobiography is candid and very down to earth. I actually listened to the audio version of this and it really felt like […]


My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

I love Sophie Kinsella’s books because they always make me laugh out loud. Her characters are fun and have a lot of heart. They always manage to get themselves into sticky situations and then make their way out of them with a happy ending for all at the end of the book. My Not So […]

Fuller House: Season One

Fuller House: Season One

Friday was always my favorite day of the week when I was growing up. Not only because it was the last day of school before the weekend, but because of ABC TV’s TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Friday) lineup. My favorite show in the two-hour sitcom block? Full House. It was the story of Danny Tanner, […]


Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini

Funny, witty and at times shocking, TROUBLEMAKER: SURVIVING HOLLYWOOD AND SCIENTOLOGY is part life story, part stunning expose on the inner workings of Scientology. Remini tells of her childhood in Brooklyn, her parent’s divorce, and her transition from Roman Catholicism to Scientology at the age of nine. When she was thirteen, she and her family […]
