Interview with Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild on Lifetime

Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild on Lifetime

You may not agree with the birthing option selected by Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild, the first woman profiled on Lifetime’s new series premiering tonight (Tuesday, March 3 at 10pm), but there’s no denying that this birthing story is can’t-turn-away television. When I first read the initial press release on the series I was like “Wait, what?” As a hospital-birthing mother of three, the idea of a woman wanting to give birth in the wild (with no doctor on call) had me completely miffed. Like, who in her right mind would risk this — her health and the … Continue reading

Who didn’t love “Macho Man?” He was the living embodiment of excessive costuming — Fringed jackets, giant wack-a-doo hats, neon, sunglasses that looked impossible to see out of — he was the very best and worst of his era’s fashion choices.

Recap: The Bachelor Women Tell All features cat fights and dolphin laughs

Recap: The Bachelor Women Tell All features cat fights and dolphin laughs

Oh, The Bachelor Women Tell All episode  – my favorite episode of the season. It’s about to be a girl fight. Poor Chris Harrison. I have never seen a cattier group of women on this show, and I can’t even imagine trying to manage all the crazy business going on there. I guess my mom was right: some people never grow up after high school. Britt and Carly waste no time and begin to duke it out. Britt confronts Carly and the cat fight officially begins. In no time, several of the girls’ claws come out to attack Britt’s “authenticity,” as Jade … Continue reading
