dating
My wine knowledge was a hard-earned gift that came out of a not-so-good relationship.
celebrities
I am excited to learn it’s a Melissa McCarthy feature –- and doubly excited I will be playing one of 17 Midwestern women dancing and cheering on a male stripper. YES.
addiction
going out

alcohol

drinking
This will be the first time in 15 years I've gone for a whole month without drinking. My liver and I are relying on you to keep us honest.
classy drinks
I hate how "girly" is supposed to be an insult. So let's talk drinks. Plus recipes for three of my fave cocktails.
tv
Did you make a legendary ass out of yourself at your holiday party, too? Well, thank God for that. Because it might get you on TV -- and everyone likes TV!
