Donald Trump is Elected 45th President of the United States...

It has taken a few days but I believe that it is time for this post, though the reality still has yet to set in. Donald Trump, former host of "The Apprentice" and "The Celebrity Apprentice," has been elected the 45th President as of early Wednesday morning. At about 3am, November 9th, Trump along with his family, took the stage to confirm that Hillary Clinton had called to concede in the race for the White House. Trump, a Republican, is taking over for Democrat Barack Obama, who served two terms, with Joe Biden by his side. 

He campaigned for Hillary Clinton, former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State but sadly, it was not enough. Having been a Hillary supporter since she first ran against Obama, I am saddened. I want to make this extremely clear: I am NOT against Republicans. Reread that and let that sink in. In fact, I do not think many Democrats or other affiliations are against Republicans but rather this particular candidate. 

He, along with Mike Pence, seemingly want to revoke women's rights, LGBTQ rights, certain health care; in a nutshell, erasing all the hard work we have put in throughout all of these years to promote progress. With a Republican congress, it may be a lot easier to pass agendas as opposed to Obama, who dealt with the opposing side always acting against him. Can Trump, 70 get things done and "Make America Great Again" or is he full of hot air? I never thought America was not great so to me, that slogan is outright offensive. 

The only thing that I can say and have said about the new President-elect is that he is living proof that if you have a dream, no matter how far-fetched it seems, you can achieve it. You can have absolutely no experience and still get the job which makes a lot of educated people wonder why they are still considered inexperienced when they apply for jobs that they went to school for. It seems that many forgave Trump for all of his inappropriate comments about women, special needs people, foreigners, and the president and elected him anyway. I can only hope that if dissatisfied Americans want to protest, they will do it peacefully as opposed to the way it is turning. 

Violence is not the answer and that makes us no better than the ignorant words often coming out of Trump's mouth. Do I have to like him? No. Do I have to respect him? Debatable. But do I have to hurt others to get my voice heard? No. So think about the high road because when they "go low, we go high!"

*Bright side: we get more Alec Baldwin on SNL!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
