Lance Armstrong Comes Clean to Doping

The other night, I was in bed, looking for something to watch on television.  I know, I know, experts say you shouldn’t have a television in your bedroom, but I find it comforting to watch a little before I go to bed. I was channel surfing when I came across the Lance Armstrong interview on OWN.  I didn’t realize this was the first airing and I am not a huge cycling fan, but something compelled me to watch. It has already been leaked to the media that Armstrong would confess to using performance-enhancing drugs to Oprah, but I wanted to … Continue reading

Angelina Jolie seems to be everywhere and now she has bumped Oprah of all people out of the number one position on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. Oh, don’t worry, Oprah still earns more than Angelina (who only earned $27 million last year compared to Oprah’s $257 million), but maybe getting to go home to Brad Pitt every night gave Angelina a bit of an edge. Okay, actually it was Angelina’s fame that put her on top, but then you have to give Brad and the children some credit for that.
