  • Diagnosis: You're old

    Here's a big question: When does old age begin? Will 30 years do it? Is being 50 and the holder of an AARP card with senior discounts enough? Both would be wrong guesses. Until recently, I hadn't thought much about it. Yet, I got the answer to this...

    'Kourtney and Kim Take New York' recap: Season finale
    True story: I missed last week’s episode. That’s because I talked to my psychic. We had a vision… that Kim and Kris were going to break up. OK, fine, I didn’t have a vision at all. And neither did the psychic from last week's...
