I Left My Hair in Francisco!

I'm back from a long week of working non-stop for 11-days straight. I spent most of the week in Orlando at a work-related hair education event where I hung out with fabulous celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham and her fun assistant Kay, my fun coworkers, and my new long-distance hair bf Francisco Villa. I actually cheated on my beloved hairstylist Chrystoph with Francisco in his hotel room at midnight where he chopped off all my hair to make me look more "sexy." If you are ever in Corpus Christi, Texas run and don't walk to see Francisco at his salon "Francisco's Salon de Belleza."

Say No, No, No to Celebrity Rehab?

In 2007, Rehab was the new black. Lohan, Winehouse and even Spears either spent their 28 days, said "no" or broke out of rehab. To capitalize on the trend, VH1 is airing it's third week of the the new reality show "Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew. Celebrity Rehab is full of either f-list or people I've never even heard of in my life which means they must not be celebs at all. But, I admit to being addicted to Celebrity rehab, and probably need an intervention from watching it. There is something disturbing about any situation where Brigitte Nielson and Daniel Baldwin seem like voices of reason and Chyna Doll seems normal. I'm salivating over nerdy Dr. Drew like he's Dr. House. And, why in the hell is Jeff Conaway further humiliating himself after his disatrous turn on Celebrity Fit Club? Why is he in a wheel chair? How much are these celebrities getting paid to be on this show? Who is exploiting who here? Is Celebrity Rehab actually a genius concept where reality television deconstructs the genre and our obsession with celebrity culture or is it the most exploitive and disgusting television program ever? Discuss.

RIP Heath

Like many New Yorkers, I was sad to hear about the unexpected death of actor Heath Ledger today. I was reminded of the tragedies of River Phoenix and Kurt Cobain, both talents who died young from my generation. Todd and I had the pleasure of seeing Heath in person at a BAFTA event. My thoughts go out to his family during this sad and difficult time for the.

Babylon Alert

I have been very busy at work and tomorrow I have to go to a BAFTA pub quiz, so my blogging has been lazy. Max and I are healthy and happy and enjoying these first few weeks of 2008. 2007 ended on a strange note. Max almost got killed by a dog (actually his uncle dog) and I was eager for the horrible and stressful year to end. Now, we are having fun, meeting new people and getting our creative grooves back. Well, actually, that's just me. Max is just happy to be alive.

The Globes

Well, the Globes press conference was slightly brilliant and I wasn't really ready to live blog anyway. So, in spirit of Globes fashion, here is me, Wyndham and Chat in our Globes outfits. We're wearing a new couples trend called "British Lord and his Russian bride" chic. Eat your hearts out, Angie and Brad.

My life is falling apart. My sinuses are completely stuffed and infected. And, the Golden Globes are cancelled and now I feel like I have nothing to live for anymore.
