The Bachelor, Arquette, Lohan, the OWN Network & Love is Found Online


Tonight marks the return of The Bachelor and the 2nd chance for Bachelor Brad Womack.  I thought this guy was an idiot last time he was on the show so I can only imagine how he will be this go round.  He talks too slow and comes across as a bit of a dimwit.  By dimwit of course I mean putz.

I was not sure I would watch, but who am I kidding?  I am totally watching and totally going to speak my mind.  The gloves are off and just because I love this show, have a crush on Mike Fleiss, and know people who work there, I am not going to hesitate to tell it like I see it, and I cannot wait.

David Arquette checked into rehab last week.  I really like this guy and I feel bad that he has lost his way.  He says he needs to get sober so he can return to his family, but you won’t ever get sober if you are doing it for someone else.  He needs to want it for himself, which I’m not clear he does.

I’m pulling for him.  He is a sweet guy, we have met a couple of times at events, and I liked him.  He loves his wife and kid and I hope that it all works out.  On the other end of the Hollywood Rehab rollercoaster, we have Lindsay Lohan who is to be released from Betty Ford sometime today.

I’m not that interested in this chick’s journey.  Granted she is young and her family is a major screw up, but at some point she needs to take responsibility for her actions and I just don’t think she gives a crap.  She is a mess and I think her story will probably not have a happy ending.

Oprah Winfrey launched her own network this weekend and let me just say, I am hooked.  There are some great shows here, with a lot of really good ones still to begin.  I watched “Master Class” with Jay-Z and then Diane Sawyer.  Both were fascinating and I totally loved this show.

“Enough Already with Peter Walsh” is an organizing show that deals with hoarders.  It’s what I do for a living so I dig it from that angle, but also from the perspective of watching how a life can spiral out of control and how with a little guidance and support, you can get it back.

There is a lot of reality television coming with shows about Wynona and Naomi Judd and Shania Twain.  There are cooking, decorating, health shows, and enough Oprah that those who love her, will not miss her once her daily talk show goes off the air later this year.  It’s great television.

It’s a new year and I am excited.  I have made only one resolution and it is to be more connected to my faith, and live a more Jewish life.  That’s it.  Any other resolution would undoubtedly be broken and I refuse to set myself up for failure when we are only a couple of days in.

I know I will find love this year.  I am not going to settle for anything less than what I deserve, and I am going to meet a wonderful man who is secure and fabulous, and we will be happy together.  While it will 100% not be on JDate, I may just meet this man online.

Last year I wrote a blog about my friend “Elaine” and her boyfriend “Jerry”.  They met online and were beginning a wonderful relationship.  You can read that entry by clicking here.  Elaine & Jerry This wonderful couple got married yesterday.  Elaine looked gorgeous and happy and Jerry described the day as “Perfect”.  It has started my year off with hope and joy.

Whatever you are searching for, it can be found.  I believe that faith can bring great things and when it takes a little too long to get it, faith can comfort us and allow us to be patient.  I have wonderful friends, a wonderful family, a great job, and a child that proves perfection exists.

This is going to be the year that I also have love.  I believe it and so it shall be.  Thank you for reading and being a part of my life through this blog.  We are beginning this New Year together and I invite you to not only read, but to write.  I’m learning from you and those lessons allow me to keep the faith.
