Jessica Biel couldn’t make Justin Timberlake stay.

Written by Sarah I’ve been very enthusiastic in my support of Charlie Sheen’s TORNADO OF AWESOME over the last couple of weeks. I refuse to call it a “meltdown” or a “trainwreck” or a “downward spiral”. Full Story

Duana, Michelle, and I went to Paris for 4 days on a work trip. After that it was off to London. We always write to each other, notes through the day, like – remember when we went to Paris and London?
