What Happened When My Ex-Husband Invited His Girlfriend To Our Son's Wedding
Huffington Post - 5 months
My son got married a few weeks ago. However, what should have been a weekend of unadulterated delight was filled with moments of sadness. Not because I don't like his new wife (she is one of the most wonderful people I've ever met), or because I'm estranged from my son (he's great), or because of the venue or the in-laws or religious objections. No, I was unhappy because my ex-husband invited his girlfriend. Ever since I found out that my ex-husband of two years was bringing his girlfriend to the three-day camp wedding in the Adirondacks, I've been alternatively dreading and looking forward to the occasion. At first, I tried to get a date, but I'm not dating anyone, and I just couldn't see asking even good friends to travel six hours each way from my home in New York City for three full days. I asked everyone I knew if they could think of someone who might want to come, but to no avail. I even tried to find a rent-a-date agency. After all, with visions of The Wedding Date with Debra ...

Why Age Really Should Be Just a Number
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
There are -- at minimum -- a handful of societal rules and rituals that I find preposterous, puzzling or both. But there's one in particular that vexes me a little more with each passing year. Since I was a small child, I've known never to ask a lady her age. "What's the big deal?" my 6-year-old mind wondered, and my almost-40 inner voice still asks the same question. Female empowerment quotes flood Pinterest like the rain that prompted Noah to build that boat. Still, we're afraid to admit that we know with certainty the remake of Annie was total crap because we are old enough to remember the 1982 version on the big screen. It's the same mentality that drove Julia Roberts's and Dermot Mulroney's characters in My Best Friend's Wedding to agree that if they were not hitched by 28, then they would marry one another. Really, Hollywood -- 28? Every gal pal who has made that pact with a guy (remember Phoebe and Joey?) knows 30 or 40 is the age for that sort of deal. Perhaps 28 was peg ...

How Your Favorite Hollywood Love Stories Should Have Ended

J.K. Rowling’s recent comments that Hermione Granger should have ended up with Harry Potter instead of Ron Weasley ignited a firestorm of controversy among media and fans alike. But here at HuffPost Weddings, her remarks got us thinking about all the other characters whose love stories should have gone another way. Check them out below, and let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments! Carrie and Aidan from “Sex and the City” We love Mr. Big -- really, we do. But if we're being honest, he’s kind of a jerk and strung Carrie along for six seasons -- and he even married another woman! At the end of the day, she should have have ended up with nice, doe-eyed Aidan and everyone knows it. Buffy and Angel from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” The greatest star-crossed love story since Romeo and Juliet, in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” everyone's favorite slayer falls madly in love with a vampire.

'The Mindy Project' vs. 'New Girl': Who Wins?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Have you been watching the third season of "New Girl"? I have. I've been a loyal fan since it debuted in 2011. There was just something so endearing about Zooey Deschanel and her portrayal of Jessica Day (though I get why some would be annoyed by how absolutely precious she can be). I, however, simply thought she was a clumsy breath of fresh air. Fast-forward to now and I have been sorely disappointed, almost from Episode 1 of Season 3. I'm not sure why. Is it because Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson) are a couple? Nope. I love them together and the "I love you"/finger guns exchange on Sunday's post-Super Bowl episode only added to that. Is it because Coach is around but Damon Wayans Jr. is only considered a "Special Guest Star" and not a regular cast member? Maybe. Is it because there has been more Winston (Lamorne Morris) and not enough Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Schmidt and Cece (Hannah Simone)? Kinda-sorta. I'm always cool with more Winston, but I do miss the Schmidt/Cece romance a ...

Jobs Trailer: Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs
The Hollywood Gossip - over 3 years
Say what you will about the Kutch, he does a fairly convincing Steve Jobs. Watch Ashton Kutcher take on the role of one of the most revered men of our time in the first trailer for Jobs. Jobs Trailer The film tells the story of Jobs and Steve Wozniak, played by Josh Gad, as they start building computers in their garage, and eventually go on to found Apple Computers. It looks like a fairly straightforward, safely-played biopic, and the trailer feels a bit formulaic given that the movie was already lampooned before it came out by the Funny or Die movie iSteve. Dermot Mulroney, Matthew Modine, and James Woods also star. Jobs will hit theaters August 16.

Review: 'The Rambler' is a hitchhiker horror that travels a deceptive path
LATimes - over 3 years
The film is hallucinatory and handsome, though you may eventually tire of all the screaming. Picture Clint Eastwood blundering into a David Lynch movie and you'll have "The Rambler," Calvin Lee Reeder's hallucinatory hitchhiker horror about a taciturn ex-con (Dermot Mulroney) who keeps stumbling across strangers — and corpses — that might not actually exist. Either way, he doesn't much seem to care. He's just a cowboy trying to make it to his brother's pony farm in Oregon, but like Odysseus in blue jeans — albeit, a much less talkative Odysseus — he's beset by a dozen devils, including a fight promoter who forces him to battle a man with a hook, a traveling magician with a dream machine that makes people's heads explode, and a nameless beautiful blond (Lindsay Pulsipher, the star of Reeder's equally incoherent "The Oregonian") who rides horses, does the splits and is occasionally maimed, killed or resurrected as a skin-crawling wraith. And we haven't even gotten to the taxidermy lizard ...

Liat Kornowski: Nick And Jess' Courtship Is Now Borderline Annoying
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 2, Episode 21 of Fox's "New Girl," titled "First Date." Move along folks, nothing to see here ... or so should have been written on the opening precursor to tonight's episode right alongside "viewer discretion advised." We are now witnessing the world's most drawn-out foreplay and it is getting a bit exhausting. When people worried that Nick and Jess were moving too fast and "whatever will they do in Season 3 to keep up the tension?" well, those people did not see this coming, and neither did I. I understand that by moving the show to Thursday night in an attempt to win over a new and larger audience, "New Girl" had to play it safe. But word to the wise -- either do it already, or have Nick screw up in his oh-so-typical Nick Miller way. Thanks.
