  • Daytime TV is embracing black entertainers; prime time, less so

  • Matt Lauer takes Jay Leno inside his Pamela Anderson costume trauma

    Matt Lauer takes Jay Leno inside his Pamela Anderson costume trauma
    The morning show format doesn't lend itself to going in-depth on any one topic. It's a lot of happy chit-chat and local weather. That's what the late night talk show can do -- really drill down into the subjects that most affect our lives. "Today" host...

    Not Playing The Shapewear Bondage Game
    Could you be talked into purchasing a foundation undergarment so restrictive, so unyielding and so draconian it makes a wetsuit look like a nightgown? This is why I ask: There's been a pop-up (rarely has the term been so grievously misused) ad appearing...

    Legs for days, weeks, months, years
