During the day, I have a limited amount of time to scan the internet
for frivolous news items such as a story of Woody Allen's favorite

Of course, I lie… to an extent.
I believe my editor has glanced over
at my computer to find me in a trance while reading the latest news on
PerezHilton.com. (Blast! My ultimate guilty pleasure is revealed.)
However, I'm doing research and as unbelievable as that may sound
Last week, my research led me to an interesting finding. Sarah
Jessica Parker, of Square Pegs
fame, is about to pull a Tyra,
Heidi, Paula, Donald, and any other celebrity jumping on the
reality-show bandwagon. Now, I don't hate Mrs. Parker one bit. I may

lover? Or would his 15 minutes of fame mantra make him the Simon
Cowell of the show?
The world will have no other choice but to wait and see what develops.
