Amour Directed by Michael Haneke With Jean Louis Trintignant  Emmanuelle Rivas and Isabelle Huppert   The French film Amour is not romantic film about love.  But the bond of love between the two Elderly Parisians in this gripping film is tested beyond most limits imaginable.It is pure love stripped of any Hollywood trappings. Amour, directed by Michael Henecke, is not an easy film to watch. ...

Yesterday, it was announced that Josh Brolin and Diane Lane are getting a divorce. We hate hearing Divorce news because it means the end of a love that was strong enough to make “official”….but then again it opens the door to a whole lot of new romantic adventures, which I guess is positive. After looking back on their relationship, we have been able to dissect that this Hollywood love affair wasn’t as Glamorous as you’d expect it to be. In fact, to those who know anything of the couple, the divorce was almost...

Lindsay Lohan has falling off the map as people are more and more disinterested in her nonsense. I mean from car accidents, to being un-hireable, to theft and in and out of court….her career has been more about selling magazines than making movies and we are disinterested. But her ex-girlfriend, Samantha Ronson, has recently surfaced, in what may or may not be a hope for more media attention,...

AND THE WINNER OF THIS YEAR’S ROMANCE BEAT AWARD FOR THE MOST ROMANTIC MOVIE GOES TO— Silver Linings Playbook.!!! Whether or not it wins an Oscar, we loved this movie because it really touched our hearts. All of the emotion was right on the surface – Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) and his love for life; his love for his parents (Jacki Weaver and Robert DeNiro) and theirs for him, his love for...

We LOVE Doing Good (at Least When it Means Reading Romance)… Beloved ménage writer, Trinity Blacio, and romance publishing maven, Lori Perkins, have teamed up to help victims of Hurricane Sandy and share their love of the unconquerable New York City at the same time. They’ve edited an anthology of romance stories that not only climbs the scale from sweet and cuddly to red hot, but each story reflects a little bit of NYC. Many of the authors are building from their own New York connections or history. From strangers falling for...

Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey know exactly what we’re talking about when they hear the words The Heathman Hotel and Hotel Max. These are the hotels in Portland and Seattle where Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele had countless (well, you could count them, but why bother) romps that are invariably described as sizzling, steamy, saucy, sexy and/or smutty. Well, now these hotels have decided...

Rihanna celebrated her 25th birthday yesterday in Hawaii with her boyfriend Chris Brown….despite what her fans and the general public opinion wanted. Now, I understand why we all hate Chris Brown based on how the media portrayed him, however, I am also well aware of Hollywood and the PR machine that surrounds it. Meaning, we have no idea what the complexities or dynamics of their relationship is. We also don’t know what went on in that car the night Chris Brown allegedly beat her up. What we do know is that they have rekindled...

Adam Levine and his latest Victoria’s Secret model girlfriend, Behati Prinsloo, are reportedly going through a rough patch. Prinsloo is not his first Victoria’s Secret model girlfriend, making me wonder if he works with the Victoria’s Secret marketing team to get their models some celebrity exposure like Leonardo DiCaprio. Apprently Levine didn’t bring her to the Grammys as...

A middle school teacher is now facing charges of having sex with underage minors who she was helping with their math homework. Her name is LaShawn Simmons, she resigned from her teaching job at Beverly Hills Intermediate School in Texas when the scandal first hit in January but now she is being criminally charged….because sex with students is against the law. Simmons is 41 years old, she got caught because one of the parents read some explicit facebook messages that she sent and investigators have since concluded that nude photos...
