Blind Gossip Blind Item - Merry Facemas

Several celebrities are “freshening up” their faces for the holidays!
This funny female starred in two hit television shows over the past decade, and is currently rocking the big screen. She is known for her brains and her wit, so it’s interesting that she finally succumbed to cosmetic pressures.
She recently had her forehead frozen with Botox. We do have to admit that she does look younger (even if she has temporarily lost the ability to move anything above her eyes).

Wall Street Journal Blind Item - Manhattan Prosecutors Allege Hacker Stole Movie, Television Scripts

Manhattan federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged a man with hacking into email accounts and stealing popular television and movie scripts, a sex tape of at least one celebrity and private information from others.
The 23-year-old then tried to sell the scripts, video, pictures, social security numbers and other stolen data to an undercover federal agent, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan.
The complaint didn’t name any of the celebrities or television shows and movies at issue. A spokesman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office declined to comment further.
The alleged hacker, Alonzo Knowles, was scheduled to appear in court late Tuesday. A defense lawyer couldn’t be immediately identified.
According to the criminal complaint, the investigation rapidly unfolded this December after Mr. Knowles contacted a “popular radio host” offering in an email to sell the person scripts from a coming season of a popular drama television series airing on a “premium cable and satellite television network.”
The radio host contacted an executive producer at the network, which then contacted the Department of Homeland Security’s investigations unit. The radio host subsequently connected Mr. Knowles, who also called himself “ Jeff Moxey,” with an undercover agent.
Throughout a series communications over the past month, Mr. Knowles produced television scripts, movie scripts and a sex tape and photos of a television host to the undercover agent to prove he had the goods, according to the complaint. Mr. Knowles also allegedly sent the social security numbers for several professional athletes.
On a FaceTime call with the agent on Dec. 11, Mr. Knowles allegedly said he could get other sex tapes and showed a list of the names of around 130 celebrities and said he had obtained their phone numbers and contact information.
Mr. Knowles said he would hack into the phones or email accounts of celebrities or their friends to gain access to their private information, according to the complaint.
Mr. Knowles, who lives in the Bahamas, ultimately agreed to fly to New York to meet the agent in the U.S. to hand over some of the stolen data and receive payment, according to the complaint.
He disclosed his date of birth, passport number and MoneyGram account so that the agent, posing as a buyer, could make travel arrangements on his behalf, the complaint said.
On Monday, Mr. Knowles met the undercover agent who handed him $80,000 in cash for the scripts. After Mr. Knowles took the money, the agent arrested him.

Adele Covers Time Magazine

Adele recently appeared on the cover of Time Magazine. Inside, the magazine quotes her as follows:

She’s not sure why she’s so phenomenally successful, but she has an idea.
“The fact that I’m not shy or embarrassed to be falling apart. Everyone falls apart, I think. A lot of people try to be brave and not shed a tear. Sometimes when you know someone else feels as s— as you do, or approaches things in a certain way just like you do, it makes you feel better about yourself. Even though my music is melancholy, there’s also joy in that. I hope I do bring joy to people’s lives, and not just sadness, but I think there’s there’s a comfort in it. But I honestly don’t know. If I knew, I would bottle it, and sell it to everyone else.”

She thinks artists should be a “package,” not a “brand.”
“I don’t like that word. It makes me sound like a fabric softener, or a packet of crisps. I’m not that. But there’s personality in an artist, and if you’re expecting people to let you in and give themselves to you, you have to be a whole package. I feel like some artists—and this isn’t shading any artist, just me trying to come up with my own explanation—the bigger they get, the more horrible they get, and the more unlikable. And I don’t care if you make an amazing album—if I don’t like you, I ain’t getting your record. I don’t want you being played in my house if I think you’re a bastard.”

She thinks some artists are overexposed.
“I’m not throwing shade at anybody, but when you have a six-month build up, don’t expect me to be there the day your album comes out, because I’m bored. It doesn’t matter how amazing it is. You put seven songs out. I’ve heard the album. I’ve heard everything you want to say about it. I’ve heard it all over radio. Don’t expect me to not lose interest before it’s even happened.”

Matt Dallas and Blue Hamilton Are Parents

Former Kyle XY star Matt Dallas and husband Blue Hamilton have adopted their first child together, son Crow, 2. The couple introduced their son on YouTube, and explained their decision to adopt, as quoted by People“We’ve been talking about having kids for a long time — we both come from big families. Family is very important to both of us; raising a family of our own is very important to us. So it was just a matter of when, timing-wise, and how. Of course there was surrogacy, you can have your own [biological] kid, private adoption. At first it was overwhelming. We’d spend nights as we were going to bed on our iPads reading about different ways… After spending some time researching, it seemed natural that we would go through the state...There were just a lot of kids that really needed homes. There’s kids and babies waking up in office buildings, waking up in group homes. People that work for the state just don’t have enough time or resources to get to all of them.” Watch the full video below.


Backdoor Farrah Wants To Adopt A Child

Teen Mom and porn star Farrah Abraham, 24, is trying to adopt a child. Page Six reports that Farrah has stated, "I'm happy to confirm I'm moving forward in my adoption process. This means I will be making some changes in my career to welcome a new addition to my family." So, that means she will be hitting the road less for porn conventions and strip club appearances? Okay. As for how daughter Sophia, 6, is taking the news, "Sophia is in the right frame of mind and is very supportive as well. She is very open and accepting to understanding that someone else had other parents, and we would be their second parent and be a loving family to them." Let's face it, anyone who has watched Teen Mom can attest that Farrah will try to get sophia to raise the new kid. Good luck with that!

Quentin Tarantino Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Reporter announces that Quentin Tarantino has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, right in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre (I know they changed the name, but who can keep up?). The ceremony was attended by Zoe Bell, Demian Bichir, Clifton Collins Jr., Walton Goggins, Pam Grier, Jennifer Jason Leigh, James Parks, Tim Roth, Craig Stark, director Edgar Wright and Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson introduced Tarantino by stating the following: “Knowing what kind of cinephile he is, the reverence he holds for these names, I was very, very proud the day I got my star and I know what it means to him, cause of what he thinks and how he reveres this business and the art of filmmaking,” Jackson told the crowd. “There aren’t a lot of people in this business who still look at filmmaking the way Quentin does and the purity of what it is and what it should be.”

Finally, Tarantino addressed the crowd as follows: “Wow, I guess I must have become a big shot...I take it seriously that I am a member of this community, I am a member of this town. I’m happy to have my star on the Walk of Fame with all the other people who have done a wonderful job in this town.”

Nicolas Cage Has A Stolen T-Rex Skull

No, that is not a euphemism. TMZ reports that Nicolas Cage bought a 65 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus Rex skull at auction in 2007 for $276,000. That seems like kind of a bargain, tbh. Bad news for Cage, though. That skull had been stolen from Mongolia, and the government had been trying to track it down for years. Once they discovered it in Cage's possession, he forked it over without a fight. Hey, at least all of those National Treasure movies taught him something!


Bill Cosby Suing Beverly Johnson For Defamation

Bill Cosby was already revealed to be both a rapist and an asshole, but now he done lost his mind. Page Six reports that Bill Cosby is suing national treasure Beverly Johnson for defamation, and he also throws major shade at her in the filing, stating that she is using the story to rekindle her career. 

I don't even have words for this, so I'll borrow what Judd Apatow recently said on Twitter, as reprinted by Salon: "Bill Cosby can sue everyone on Earth and that will not change the fact that we all know that he is a vicious rapist. His inability to take responsibility for anything he has done reveals he never meant anything he said. Bad bad man. His lawyers will get rich encouraging him to fight like this but it will only result in more truth coming out. I don't really care if people can still enjoy the old comedy. It doesn't matter to me. He should just be in jail."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Sad Money

This funny actress acted sad when she found out that her television show was being cancelled. It was an appropriate reaction for her to express to the cast and crew and fans… although maybe not a completely genuine one. Now that she has busted out of the confines of regularly taped show, she is free to make more movies. More very highly-paid movies. In fact, she calculates that she will be able to take home twice as much money a year now. That’s not sad at all!

Goop Got Jennifer Aniston To Spill On Her Beauty Secrets

Just when you thought that lifestyle website Goop could not get any more vomitorious, they decided to interview basic bitch Jennifer Aniston about her diet and fitness secrets. Here's the latest from Goop and Aniston:

You’re pretty ageless: What do you credit that to?
I have said this before but it’s the truth—I really think hydration is so important…and sleep! I drink smartwater all day everyday and I like the new smartwater sparkling water at night with meals. I take care of my skin and try not to go into the sun as much as I used to. Also we are as young as we feel and treating yourself right is a great way to feel good. Being happy is also a key to looking and feeling younger.

Do you over-indulge and then compensate in January?
Well for the most part, I always maintain a healthy regimen in terms of diet and exercise. It’s pretty much been a part of my daily routine for years now so its second nature to me. Having said that—during the holidays I have no problem treating myself to some indulgent foods but I usually don’t go overboard with it in a way that I have to double up the fitness in January.

Anything you take, or do, religiously every day?
I start everyday with a good, solid breakfast. I like to meditate every day for even just a few minutes—it helps clear the mind. I take a good multivitamin every day as well .

Favorite Chinese restaurant?
I’m not big on Chinese food.

Martha Stewart Throws Shade at The Countess

Page Six reports that Martha Stewart and Real Housewife of New York Countess LuAnn de Lesseps recently found themselves guests at a dinner for the Qatari Ambassador to the US, Mohammed Jaham Al Kuwari. The Ambassador was having a nice chat with the Countess and invited her to visit his country, and maybe appear on her show (the Real Housewives of New York) when Stewart leaned over to whisper to him, "You don't want to do that. It's lowbrow, very B-list." Better get The Countess some aloe vera for that burn! If you can't take Martha's heat, get your ass out of the kitchen!

David Foster Reverses Course Again Over Yolanda's Illness

Music producer and famewhore David Foster must have thought his people's shady call to Us Weekly where he pretty much said that Yolanda Foster doesn't have Lyme Disease made him look like the huge asshole that he pretends not to be, so Foster released a statement directly to TMZ stating, "It is so frustrating to see headlines questioning her chronic debilitating illness." It must be even more frustrating when you are the one that created those headlines, but whatev. He goes on to state that he's proud of how brave Yolanda has been in trying to find a cure for the disease. Uh huh. You stay classy, David Foster!


Celebrity Real Estate - Yolanda Foster Condo Edition

After Yolanda Foster moved out of the Malibu home she shared with husband David Foster, she nabbed a Westwood condo for $4.59 million.

Kate Major Files For Separation From Michael Lohan

TMZ reports that Kate Major has filed for legal separation from husband Michael Lohan. Major is currently in rehab, and alleges that Lohan won't leave her ass alone and keeps psychodialing the rehab facility to get in touch with her. Then a few weeks ago, Lohan allegedly sent Major a teddy bear with a hidden cell phone inside. No doubt the teddy bear was clad in a mesh t shirt, which sent Major over the edge and caused her to file for legal separation. She is asking for spousal support, the Maserati, and the BMW. And custody of the kids that both she and Lohan have already lost custody of, so I think that ship may have sailed.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Christmas Puppy

This reality family has introduced several new dogs over the past few years. Each time the puppy gets introduced on social media, does a few photo ops… and then quietly disappears.

I live near them and have a dog of my own, so I always notice whenever I see them on social media with a new puppy. Then I noticed that the dog-of-the-month always mysteriously disappears a short while later. This happened several times. You never see anyone walking a dog, never hear a dog barking in the backyard, never see them on their reality show, never see them in the family photos. They just disappear! I saw [a family member] a couple of months ago and asked them, “So how’s your dog?” and they just looked at me blankly and said, “I don’t have a dog!” and then walked away.

What do you think is happening to these dogs?

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Double the Daddy

Today’s blind item seems to have a journey filled with double-factors. One, with a pair of pops’ on deck: 1 daddy, 1 diddy, he’s got double the daddy. Two, being that he’s “a spitting image” of his biological dad — a popular singer from the New Jack era — he’s left many an industry insider to do a double-take over the striking similarities. And, with recent word peggin’ him as one of Hollywood’s most sought after cover-up kings for female studs-on-the low (just ask Amber Rose), this Brotherly Lov’in blind item could very well be leading double a Life!

“He’s a gay guy that’s friendly with ladies of the industry, so he’s usually seen with women. The truth is he’s not smashing any woman he’s seen with … Keke Palmer can attest to that.” ~Hollywood Insider

Some say that while he looks just like one daddy, this 24-year-old actor on-the-rise has picked up the secret Frosted Flakes-isms of his diddy. Interestingly enough, that would be the Notorious producer-pops he has to thank for pushing to shut down his Empire dreams, ultimately leading him to Revolt against his diddy’s wishes. Just ask Lee Daniels.

“He’s headed to Empire as a cast member of Lee Daniels’ hit series.”

Dig the Drop:

“He’s the male version of a beard and lately the media wanted everyone to believe that he’s smashing Kourtney Kardashian — but in all truth, he’s not.”


He was named after his Godfather, Quincy Jones. Now, can you guess who I’m talking about?

Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, David O. Russell, and Robert De Niro Talk Making Moves Together

The New York Times recently gathered Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, David O. Russell, and Robert De Niro to talk to them about making movies together. Here are some of the highlights:


Q. You guys are together again, almost like a repertory theater. Does that feel like a family thing?
Russell Every time is different, but I do feel very close to everyone at this table, and I aspire to write for everyone [here] and to deliver roles that are worthy of them. This is the first story ever for me about a woman at the center. Naturally Jennifer is the person I thought of to play this age range, from 18 to 43. Naturally I thought of Robert to be her father, Robert being very familiar with these kind of salt of the earth characters. Bradley because he’s become a filmmaker in some ways, he produced “Sniper,” so it was kind of perfect for him to play. Does that seem right?
Lawrence No, I think you should take back the whole thing.

For you, was it always obvious that you would do this?
De Niro I just felt that it was something to do, to be part of the whole group. It reminded me of Cassavetes or other directors who have their troupe, if you will. Ingmar Bergman. And it was a lot of fun. With David, it’s like Bradley says — a full contact sport. It’s like he’s writing as he’s filming. It’s really energetic and kind of frenetic and spontaneous.

There’s also improv, with the script coming alive in different ways as you are on set.
Russell You must write the script many times before you make the film, but that doesn’t mean it stops getting written once you make the film.
Lawrence David is a never-ending fountain of creativity. He can’t actually be asked to write one thing that’s 130 pages and then stop. It’s just the beginning, and that’s why we all get so excited to work with him.

As you get to know one another more working together, does that change the performances?
Russell It feels like we have grown up like a band, and these guys play wildly different people. If you watch any group over time, it evolves. What has evolved is suddenly all of us were around Jennifer (as a central character), which we had not done.
Lawrence Bob was always so good to me when we first met. I was young, and he was always so nice and took both of us under his wing, and it was like a Hollywood paternal type of relationship. I had all sorts of questions, and he was obviously the best one to answer. So it was like a nice evolution that he would then play my father. And Coop and I have … there’s like a reaction. I had to do one scene where I was on the phone with his character. If it was any other actor in the whole world, I would have just had the script supervisor read [the dialogue]. But I knew I would act differently if it was with Bradley. So I forced him to wake up and read the scene with me on the phone.
Cooper Bob and I worked together on a movie prior to “Silver Linings” [“Limitless,” in 2011], but then, when we had that experience of “Silver Linings,” that changed everything. You just start to be integrated into each other’s lives. We spent a lot of time together outside, so of course that informs everything. The truth is, I don’t make a movie without calling him.
Lawrence Really?

Cooper Yeah. Why wouldn’t I, to get his advice? And she and I haven’t seen each other in a while, and showing up on set, no matter what, it’s just easy to work together. Even though we don’t talk, really, it’s like, “bam.” You can’t even help yourself; [David] created this family. [Turns to him.] Your rhythms are different as a director, and that’s fun to experience.

Eva Longoria Talks Biological Clock

Eva Longoria recently sat down with People to talk about her engagement to Jose Baston and the potential to start a family with him. The magazine quotes Longoria as follows:

“I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out?’ I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full.”

On Baston's three children from a previous marriage:
“They’ve been such a gift in my life. I don’t feel like we are lacking because we don’t have a baby. We are fulfilled. If there is anything else to come, it would be icing on the cake.”

Lainey Gossip Blind Item - Sidepiece on the Sidejob

She’s the more famous one in her relationship but for some reason, I always thought he’d be one who stepped out. When she followed him on location a while back, the assumption was that she went along because his co-star was so attractive. But he’s actually not the one who’s been cheating.


She’s the one who found a new kind of work and picked up a sidepiece. They can’t help themselves on set. Another art imitation of life situation as they creep around and so far it hasn’t gotten back to her bonafide yet but the cast and crew are aware and the guy she’s hooking up with is married. Right now it’s “just” an affair. Like they’re not pretending they’re in love yet. But if (when?) both these couples don’t end up working out, look back to this as a sign.

Former Ally McBeal Actress Lisa Nicole Carson Opens Up About Bipolar Disorder

Actress Lisa Nicole Carson recently sat down for an interview with People, where she opened up about her battle with Bipolar Disorder. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"From the time I stepped away from show business [in 2001] until now, I've been on a long very complicated and challenging journey. I didn't know if I was going to make it out. I don't really have an option to be silent about my illness, although I wanted to be for many years. But since I had a public breakdown, it's something I felt I had to address. When you lose your mind it's as traumatic as it sounds. It's not anything you can imagine happening to you." 

On her breakdown in 2000:
"I remember glass breaking, yelling, screaming and terror. Sheer terror...The cast [of Ally McBeal] was very concerned. They put together a video for me, wishing me well. I busted my butt and worked hard for a year. And then in 2001, I got the call, 'We're not renewing your contract.' I cried for a week. Something very weird happened to me and everybody had a reaction, and it was more weird to me than anyone." 

Of her last breakdown in 2004:
"It was the closest everything came to collapsing for me. That's what marked the beginning of the end of the disease for me. I decided that whatever was going on in my life, had to take second place. I had to take my medication and fight this with everything I am. I've been stable and haven't had a breakdown in 10 years."

On her decision to finally speak out:
"It's a risk for me to be open. I never wanted to breathe a world about what happened to me. But I've had a change of heart. It's rare for someone who has something as severe as I I've had to come out the other side, but I'd like to let people know that you can. You can get to the other side."

Sophie Tweed Simmons Talks Body Confidence


Sophie Tweed Simmons, daughter of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, recently sat down for an interview with New York Magazine, where she talked about body confidence. The magazine quotes her as follows:

On being a “plus-size” model: "I’m with 1.1 models in New York. I had met with other plus-size agencies and because I’m not exactly a straight size, people didn’t want to book me. My agency said, 'We’re going to pitch you separately and find specific projects that work for you. It’s not a casting call, so we are going to find people that don’t want to change you.'

Models have to take it upon themselves to seek that out. Just because someone tells you to lose weight doesn’t mean you have to. Look for other agencies and see where they will take you as you are. Nowadays, it’s so great to see real women and no Photoshop."

How I start my mornings: "I start my morning with a cup of black coffee. I read a book that says it boosts your metabolism and perpetuates weight loss. So I take my time and drink my black coffee for an hour because while you were sleeping, your body was digesting. When you wake up, your metabolism is just starting up again, and bombarding it with food slows it down. Then I go into sliced apples or half a banana because fruit is really easy for your body to digest. I try to get up around eight, or it will be around seven, if my dogs can’t help it. They have a doggy door, but sometimes they ignore it and want me to take them out.

I used to drink hot chocolate for breakfast. But then I went through some expensive allergy testing and found out I have eczema, and a couple of mild food allergies, which caused a rash and made me hold onto fat in weird places. It turns out I have allergies to chocolate, dairy, and yeast. And I was eating those every day! My breakfast alone was three of my allergies. These allergies were mild, about a level 3 individually, but the combination made them bad. I cut those out of my life completely for two years and have been slowly reintroducing them back into my diet.

At first, I felt really stressed out because we all know that carbs make you happy. But then I found alternatives and realized it’s a lifestyle. That's not to say I don’t indulge in chocolate cake and then feel terrible after. I do. But it’s for the long term. I know my allergies are things people in Hollywood probably avoid naturally. But I was never into fad diets. I’ve always been like, I love cake, let’s eat cake. Now it’s more in moderation."

Lost Hollywood Producer Found, Announces He's An Addict

Last month, visual effects producer Eric Kohler went missing in Los Angeles. There were reports that he had turned up in Mexico just over a week later. Kohler is finally speaking out about his disappearance; here is the post that he recently shared on his Facebook page

"Three weeks ago I disappeared. As a result of my unconscious selfishness in a downward spiral it caused what I can only identify as a frenzy. There were so many questions, so much confusion and an unfortunate amount of heartache. However, within all of the chaos and insanity, there was also a miracle. I witnessed support from family, friends, loved ones, coworkers and people I've never even met before. Individuals from every corner of the country and even across borders united as one to create a support group during a period of my life that I wasn't even aware I needed.

My name is Eric Kohler and I am an addict. The actions that led up to the events unfolding over these past few weeks are not my proudest moments. Addiction is a serious issue that I clearly recognize now. Through a state of exhaustion fueled by the stress and high expectations that were put on me, and the life I chose, my addiction escalated and I mentally snapped. This emotional and physical breakdown caused me to desert the people I care for and most importantly care for me.

I honestly wish I had a more outlandish and exciting story to spin that would explain my disappearance and failures, but I do not. At this point the details do not matter, the repercussions are mine to live with. I've let down so many people around me, which is not something I'm used to. Though my actions will be ridiculed by the negativity of some, I look forward to the positivity I will bring to those who did care by making my amends and returning the unconditional love you've all shown me.

I am currently seeking treatment at a facility for my addiction. I felt that it was finally an appropriate time to reach out and provide an explanation, given I can now see more clearly. And well, if for no other reason than to promote an advocacy for the struggle and hardships that addiction can cause not only on yourself, but ALL of those around you whether they are strangers or not.

I believe most people would find it easiest to ignore or dodge the questions and speculations, but I’ve decided that instead of bottling up my past destruction, I want to use my story as an example of a positive outcome. Those of you struggling and thinking no one cares, reach out to those around you. You will be pleasantly surprised to realize how much we, as humans, are capable of. I unfortunately had to figure this out in the hardest and most selfish way.

Words will never be able to fully articulate the gratitude and appreciation I have for everyone who got involved. It's such a blessing to see how many people actually do care. I can admit that because of this realization and the support of others, I finally feel confident that I will be okay and able to recover to my normal self or whoever that may now become.

I love all of you; family, friends, coworkers, whether we are acquaintances or not. It is because of your unity that I am safe, I am alive, and I have the rest of my life ahead of me."

A post to discuss your nightly TV shows.

Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning... Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you've been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We're extremely grateful. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe... Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father. To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of "being better" will never steer you wrong. Trust me. Something else that'll never steer you wrong is "walking thru the fire" with your baby's mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. *(Now don't get me wrong boys, it wasn't like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike..πŸ˜‚ but as men, it's a miracle we should witness because it'll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I'm a lucky dude because I've got the greatest fans in the world - and it's true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours. #ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40 πŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ’―

The World's Most Romantic Post


"Why is it that we can consciously ignore the difference between the taste of strawberry-flavored candy and a true strawberry, and yet we call them by the same name? Why do we walk into a grocery store knowing full well that apples aren't meant to come in vibrant reds or greens with shiny, almost mirrored exteriors, and yet we have taught ourselves that those ones are "better"? Why do we douse ourselves in perfumes labeled with the word "ocean," but turn our noses up at the salty smell of the sea?


Have we become so reliant on the potency, the intensity, and the familiarity of such products that we no longer find the subtleties of nature as appealing? Why do we need the condensed scents, the explosion of flavor, or the shockingly colorful?

In all honesty, I'm guilty of it too. I gravitate toward the bright green kale and the yummy, unrealistic fragrances because I believe we are all programmed the same, guided by our senses. But while I appreciate products that are designed to stimulate them in a way that augments every experience, I also listen to the tiny voice whispering to get back to the basics, to grab that bottle of olive oil off the counter and use it as a moisturizer for the week, and to create my own natural deodorant by combining lavender, vanilla, and coconut oil."
