Speidi, a Baldwin, and Kate: This Week's Celebrity Christians on the D-List

Date: 06/16/2009

Talk shows as well as the blogosphere were a flutter yesterday with several juicy D-list Christians on reality shows doing some pretty stupid stuff. I don't relish in their individual shortcomings, as much as I am encouraged that maybe this is the teensiest beginning of the fall of reality TV as a genre. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were out and about yesterday discussing the ephinanies the ...

Dear Kate Gosselin: You're Making It Hard For Me To Defend You

Date: 06/12/2009

In Which My Daughter Decides To Shun The Spotlight

Date: 06/08/2009

Uh-oh. Let's do the math here: if my stock-in-trade is stories about and pictures of my kids, and one of those kids decides that she is JUST SO OVER having her picture taken, and we calculate that equation as x (where x = writing fodder for a parent memoirist) - y (where y = willing child) = NO CONTENT FOR MAH BLOG.
