Archive for September, 2010 Dating Optimism for Single Parents

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

I was interviewed recently for this new story, which offers my dating advice for single parents. Even if you’re not a parent, there’s some insight here about where to meet the right partner and just how honest you should be on your online profile. I think it’s pretty good stuff, but check it out for yourself and see what you think!

I had the hilarious pleasure of talking to one of my favorite stars of one of my favorite TV shows recently: Ty Burrell of Modern Family. He plays the Dad of three, Phil Dunphy. And he had some wise, warm and funny things to say about his marriage and new baby. You can check out my Ty Burrell interview at Or click on the image below to be directed there.

The Daily News on Half-Oranges: “Grab It!”

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

It was such a sweet treat to see that the New York City newspaper The Daily News found and featured my little App at the end of summer! App Momma is so darn proud. Here is the Sunday edition of the paper with my iPhone App Half-Orange Optimisms, listed under the “Grab it!” section of the App reviews.

“We all need pick-me-ups now and then,” the writer says in her review, “especially if we’re prepping to put ourselves out there.” She’s right. So if you have an iPhone and could use a pep talk in your pocket, give the App a go and see what you think!


Two Big Cheers for Health

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

This month, the September 2010 issue of Health magazine is a new redesign and a thick juicy issue full of great stuff. I’m proud to say that two of my stories hit the issue this month.

First is my sort of “Call me crazy that I don’t like to vacuum naked” essay on what makes some people “naked types” versus people like me, who sometimes sleeps in flannel pajamas with a wool hat and socks when it’s cold out. I can’t show you the whole story as it’s not up online yet, but if you want to read the whole piece (you should!) perhaps this “Let me Google that for you” search will pull it up.

Also in the issue, my cover interview with Molly Sims, the model, actress and now jewelry designer. We had a very chill chat at the L.A. SoHo House, which I know believe can claim the best view of Los Angeles. Guess I need to start sidling up to some other members so I can roll in there more often. Here’s the first spread of the piece, which you can read on that link above to the magazine’s web site.

Hope you enjoy both stories as much as I loved writing them!
