By the time I was eleven years old, I was already helping around the house. My dad worked two jobs and back then, in that generation, it was considered safe and acceptable for kids my age to take public transportation to and from school. I always got home before dad did. And to spare him to have to make dinner after a long day, I started washing the rice and getting it ready in the rice cooker. After that I learned how to marinate the meat and prepare it to be wok-steamed. On the weekends I helped out with the cleaning. At 14 I was ironing my dad’s shirts for work. At 16 I was expected to drive my ma around to her appointments and for groceries. And her mahjong games. These were my chores. And they were set out for me, at the time, so that I would learn how to contribute to our home, and appreciate how that contribution strengthens family. Full Story
I first heard this rumour a few weeks ago. Now two more people have told me the same rumour, all circulating among people in New York…about a hot actor and a married woman with a famous husband. It’s been a while since he’s made a relationship stick. Because he’s so devoted to his work. Full Story

Prince Harry covers the new issue of PEOPLE ahead of the start of the Invictus Games in Orlando on Sunday. In support of the Games Harry even gave the magazine an exclusive interview, full of quotes that the MiniVan Majority will eat up. About his mother, Princess Diana, of course.
This is what I appreciate about Harry. He understands that he’s the draw. He is doing whatever he can to generate interest for the Games without compromising the royal standard in the hopes that people will come to support the athletes. They will totally come to support the athletes. Some of them will come to propose to him. There’s always someone, probably a lot more than one, dreaming in the crowd during those walkabouts that their eyes will connect, and instant love will ensue.
I wonder how he feels about this, knowing that whenever a woman of a certain age is shaking his hand, what she’s really thinking is that she wants to be his princess. It would be different if he was a regular celebrity, or a rock star. But he can’t just take randoms back to the tour bus. So in that way he’s kinda limited. Does he envy the Leos of the world for this? All the access and the options but no opportunity to actually finish.

I’m sorry it couldn’t be anyone else. It was SJP in 2015 with the headpiece – click here for a refresher. But this year she doesn’t have to share. I go back to what I wrote in today’s blog intro, because obviously I love quoting myself: What do you do when you know that everyone will be dressing up like robot mannequins? Do you, too, dress up like a robot mannequin, or do you apply a different interpretation to the theme? F-ck no. Full Story
