Jimmy Kimmel Lists Home With Amazing Taste (Who Knew?)

When you think of a home fit for talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, you might imagine the ultimate party pad with a state-of-the-art media room, beer tap, and perhaps a trampoline in the back yard, leftover from his Comedy Central The Man Show days. What you probably wouldn’t imagine is an uber-cool Hollywood Regency style…

GuardiansoftheGalaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy

Make way for the next big Super Hero franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy will blast its way into your heart and stay there — for at least three more episodes, according to moi. Who can resist a sassy super raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), a powerful talking tree (Vin Diesel), a green, not blue super heroine (Zoe…

Saving Face With SoniClear

One of the best products I was introduced to at GBK’s Emmy gift lounge is the brand new SoniClear from Michael Todd True Organics, “The world’s first anti-microbial sonic cleansing system.” I know, you’re probably already cleaning your face with that other “sonic” skin care device, and you probably love the effect it has on your…

Jill Kirsh Shows Your Best Colors

Don’t spend another penny on clothes or makeup until you check out JillKirshColor.com. Yes, Jill is one of my best friends in the whole wide world, but we got that way after being introduced professionally, and I became so excited about her energy and her completely original color system that we became fast friends. You’ve…

Mad Men's Vincent Kartheiser Lists His Tiny House

The other day I was having a skinny vanilla latte with The Hollywood Reporter cultural editor and he asked me what was the most interesting property I’ve written about lately. I answered quickly: “I’m mad about “Pete’s” crafty little cottage in Hollywood.” It measures a mere 603 square feet, yet includes two baths, a walk-in closet,…

Chesapeake Bay Coffee

Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company Coffee

One of the items I found in my gift bag from the Secret Room Emmy gift lounge was a box of Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company K Cups. Since this brand is not available in stores anywhere near here, I probably never would have heard of it otherwise. And that would be a shame, because not…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

From time to time, I have guest reviewers do the honors. This one is by my husband, Miles Doppler, because he is such a Sin City fan. It also helps that I happen to agree with his assessment. The story goes that when director Robert Rodriguez first met Sin City author and artist Frank Miller,…

The Strain

Update: Apparently, millions of viewers disagreed with my review of The Strain. I recently received the following info from the network: “FX has ordered a 13-episode second season of its newest hit drama series The Strain from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX…

The Giver

Jeff Bridges and the rest of us have been waiting for more than 20 years for the film version of this original young adult dystopian future saga, which long preceded (and perhaps inspired) The Hunger Games and the Divergent franchises. It seems “The Dude” has been trying to make this movie for two decades, with…

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's Malibu Home Front Exterior

Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood List Their Middling Malibu Ranch House

Okay, we understand that celebrity owners can add to the value of real estate, but I think country power couple Garth Brooks and his wife Patricia Yearwood are overestimating the price of their own panache. They’ve put their rather unremarkable four bedroom, three and a half bath ranch house on the market for a whopping $7.5…
