Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Oscar-nominated actress Mariel Hemingway rose to fame at 16 playing Woody Allen’s girlfriend in the movie Manhattan. As the granddaughter of legendary writer Ernest Hemingway, Mariel was from one of this country’s most famous families — but it was also a family plagued by mental illness, addiction, and tragedy. In two new memoirs out this month, Mariel pulls back the curtain and shares what life was really like for her growing up. She holds nothing back in her book Out Came the Sun, and to reach a younger audience, Mariel wrote a version for teens called Invisible Girl.

The Health of Hollywood... Or Not!
Huffington Post - about 3 years
So I sat in the salon awaiting my oh-so-needed pedicure and was handed a few popular entertainment magazines to peruse during my treatment. I really don't read these celebrity publications, so for me, it was a lot of work catching up on Hollywood's latest fashion do's and don'ts, engagements, marriages, babies, affairs, scandals, lock-ups/arrests, rehab check-ins, drug overdoses and more. Hollywood is a mecca of rising stars, movie and musical wanna-be's. Actors, musicians, producers and filmmakers flock there to make their mark and achieve success and fame. While many have exceptional talent and express their creative soul, many often become captive in a continuous search for more fame, money, EGO gratification and the next handsome hunk or beautiful babe. There really isn't another city in the U.S. (New York may be a close second) which houses many very creative "entertainment" people searching for that "break" or that next big (movie/tv) "hit." And after having achieved a taste o ...

Are You Too Old to Be Hot?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Is there really a cutoff for sexy? Is there an age where you're no longer considered beautiful anymore? We see celebrities chasing their youth when their faces no longer move or they don't look like themselves. Instead of saying how hard it is for female celebrities to age gracefully or judging what procedures they do, I just want us to get REAL. All women that I know are conscious of the way they look. Even I have felt like I should buy makeup that's got the age-defying-you'll-trick-nature-and-stop-time serum. Who are we trying to impress, men or women? Many of my friends talk about themselves in a negative light, be it their body or how old they look. They range from their twenties up into their fifties. I wish they could see how beautiful they are. I tease them that they're going to look back when they're in their eighties and think, Look at that sexy little thing! I'll be saying, "TOLD YA SO!" I'll shout because we'll be hard of hearing and I'll be trying to make a point. I ...

Mariel Hemingway And Bobby Williams On Nature's 'Sacred' Power To Heal (VIDEO)
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
In recognition of World Mental Health Day, HuffPost OWN is looking back at Oprah's recent conversation with actress and devoted mental health advocate Mariel Hemingway. Because her family has an extensive history of mental illness, addiction and suicide, actress and author Mariel Hemingway has made it her life's mission to promote spiritual health with her partner, Bobby Williams. In their book, Running With Nature, they say nature holds a sacred power to heal, and that by reconnecting with nature, we can reconnect with ourselves. "So you say it's about really finding a way to live a simpler life that is in rhythm with nature," Oprah says to Hemingway and Williams in the above clip from "Super Soul Sunday" on OWN.

After Rudy, Before Bloomberg: Looking Back on a Mayoral Legacy
Dallas Observer Blogs - over 3 years
Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani alongside outgoing New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. (David Handschuh/New York Daily News/POOL) Finding an unpublished George Gurley piece is like opening a perfectly written time capsule. In May 2001, New York City was preparing to say farewell to a term-limited Rudy Giuliani and welcome anyone from Mark Green to Freddy Ferrer to Michael Bloomberg as its first new leader in eight years. An intrepid young Observer reporter named George Gurley hit the party scene to ask prominent New Yorkers what they thought would happen to the city. He wrote it up and then ... it disappeared. The Observer never published Mr. Gurley's observations, captured first at the annual benefit for the African Rainforest Conservancy, held at The Park on 17th and Tenth Avenue and the second was for the 10th anniversary of the Paramount Hotel.  Twelve years later, as we approach another change of guard at City Hall, Mr. Gurley got to thinking about that piece. When he r ...

The Face of Mental Illness: Celebrity Edition
Psych Central - over 3 years
Ooooh, I woudn’t want to be in Brian Williams’s shoes right now. Of course, there’d be a lot of room, given he seems to have shoved BOTH his feet in his mouth last Thursday. During what’s probably been the most stigmatizing statement I’ve heard all year, Williams announced that Ariel Castro, the Ohio man who held three women captive for a decade, was “arguably the face of mental illness.” Let’s paint that picture again, just for good measure: Brian Williams told America that Ariel Castro, a man who kidnapped three women and held them captive, raped them, and beat them for 10 years, was “arguably the face of mental illness.” Not just the fact, but arguably the face. I mean, wow. Unsurprisingly, mental health consumers and advocates far and wide are enraged, and rightly so. Williams’s comment adds fuel to the mental health stigma fire we’ve been trying so hard for years to put out. Using his national platform to tell us that Castro represents mental illness was just ...

Regina Weinreich: Brian Williams' Deadpan: Crazy for Crazy at the Nantucket Film Festival
Huffington Post - over 3 years
As emcee at the Nantucket Film Festival's Tribute ceremony, at a former casino in Siasconset, on the island's far end, mild mannered Brian Williams brought down the house riffing on an unfortunate white Buick Enclave rental, local produce like urine cheese, and pervasive V necked cashmere. Such was the truth-telling, even preppie WASPs lost control of their reticence on family secrets. Maybe Nantucket's signature fog and rain contributed to the mood swings: count the suicides. Williams went dark, confessing he had an Irish uncle who died of drink. Who knew? And so crazy got even crazier at last week's film fest where a restored theater called Dreamland is the main venue, rife for celluloid induced mental states. There, Barbara Kopple, honored for best non-fiction storytelling screened her new documentary, Running from Crazy, tells the Hemingway family story through a focus on Mariel Hemingway's activism on a family problem that affected her grandfather Ernest, sister Margau ...

Tom Weis: President Obama Lighting Fuse to Tar Sands 'Carbon Bomb' in Texas and Oklahoma Right Now
Huffington Post - about 4 years
In last week's State of the Union address, President Obama had strong words for Congress about the need to address the climate crisis: But if Congress won't act soon to protect future generations, I will... I will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. He then proceeded to undercut his own climate message by failing to denounce TransCanada's lethal Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and by calling for the development of even more fossil fuels as part of his "all-of-the-above" energy policy: "That's why my administration will keep cutting red tape and speeding up new oil and gas permits." Ending TransCanada's assault on Texas and Oklahoma is the first and easiest thing the president can do to show America he is serious about addressing a climate crisis spiraling out of control ...
