Muhammad Ali’s interfaith funeral was held today, and it was an event worthy of the boxer known as The Greatest.  Highlights included comedian Billy Crystal’s funny and touching remembrance … … Rabbi Michael Lerner’s impassioned call for social change … … and the first eulogy, given by Ali’s wife, Lonnie Ali. If you missed the […]

I was planning to write about the fashion at last night’s Billboard Music Awards, but Game of Thrones is the only thing I can think about. My designing friend Stacy Lomman, who watched the show with me, was doubly traumatized. Not only did we learn that poor Hodor had been unable to voice anything but […]

If you’re one of those people who hate spoilers … too bad! Because the big boat sank in Titanic, “Rosebud” was a sled in Citizen Kane, and a naked Khaleesi (aka Daenerys Targaryen) reminded us why one of her many nicknames is “the Unburnt” by walking through flames again at the end of last night’s […]

I’m sure you’ve heard the news about Miss Universe host Steve Harvey mistakenly announcing Miss Colombia as the winner of the pageant last night. He apologetically corrected himself, announcing Miss Philippines instead, as poor Miss Colombia stood there wearing the winner’s crown and sash. I nearly died of second-hand embarrassment for everyone involved, but I […]

Television folks don’t do a red carpet the way the music industry does. After all the eye candy at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, the Emmys were a big letdown. I’m going to give my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award to Scandal‘s Kerry Washington, though her phresh out the runway, […]

Thanks to the always highlarious Michael K of Dlisted for pointing out that The Golden Girls first aired on Sept. 14, 1985. As he says, it’s a national shame that this isn’t an official holiday that involves eating cheesecake and sitting on a lanai. The Golden Girls Get More: Comedy Central A few years ago, […]

The MTV Video Music Awards are tonight, so I was inspired to dig these out. I went to the #vmas from 1999 through 2003. I can't find my ticket from 2000 though! #mtvvmas #mtvvideomusicawards #videomusicawards #mtvvmas2015 #vmas2015 #nostalgia #mtv #bringitbacktonyc #fun #tickets #memories #ticketstub #mementos A photo posted by Wendy Brandes (@wendybrandes) on Aug 30, […]

I don’t know why this video from 2014 popped up in my Twitter timeline recently, but I’m glad it did.  We’ve got The Voice television talent show here — where judges initially face away from the would-be stars in order to focus on the voices — but other countries have The Voice Kids, for 8- […]

Gladiator sandals really are the shoe of the moment. After writing about them in yesterday’s post, I spotted them in today’s New York Observer. This look is going to be wildly overdone this season, but I’m going to take advantage of its pervasiveness and stock up on styles so I have them to wear when […]

Tonight is the last broadcast of The Late Show with David Letterman, which has aired on CBS since 1993. First Mad Men ends and now this! It’s too cruel! Of course, everyone’s been indulging in Dave’s greatest hits for weeks. You can find lots of photos, videos and stories — going back to Letterman’s weatherman […]
