Gay Soccer Player Returns To MLS
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Robbie Rogers is joining the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer in another step by openly gay athletes in professional sports. He told The Associated Press his fears about returning to soccer were eased by the strong support he received from family, fans and players, including Galaxy star Landon Donovan. Now Rogers is ready to accept his role as the league's first openly gay player. "I don't know what I was so afraid of," Rogers said Friday. "It's been such a positive experience for me. The one thing I've learned from all of this is being gay is not that big of a deal to people." "People are just really growing and accepting and loving," he added. "Those other things are just not that important to them. I think as the younger get older and the generations come and go, I think times are just becoming more accepting." The 26-year-old player had retired in February on the same day the former ...

Deb Baer: Did I Single-Handedly Ruin Katie Holmes' Life?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
On a sunny afternoon in New York City, July 11, 2004, 12 simple words spoken on the rooftop bar of the Gansevoort Hotel would change pop culture history and destroy three once-promising lives -- I'm talking about the lives of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, and Deb Baer (just kidding, I'm fine).

But when the words formed a sentence, it was like opening Pandora's Box or that scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark when the crate was opened and everyone's faces melted. That day, I was on assignment for Seventeen magazine, interviewing Dawson's Creek angel Katie Holmes. Age and soaking myself in Bud Light have taken a toll on my brain, but I do remember her being friendly, classy, and fun to talk to, though a little guarded behind giant sunglasses. She was engaged to Chris Klein and dodging questions like a pro about their as-of-yet unscheduled nups. "Are you the kind of girl who's always dreamed about her wedding day?" I p ...
