BetteBack February 21, 1991: Midler Marvelous, “Mall” Boring

Paul Mazursky is a master of intimacy. He has a keen eye for the everyday glitches in human relations h i p s, a nd a s h a rp wit for storytelling.

As a writer, “The Blackboard Jungle” (1955) was tough and realistic. His send-up of the ’60s, “I Love You, Alice B. Toklas,” captured hash brownies and a freaky Peter Sellers.

As a director, his debut film “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice” is now considered a classic look at marriage and sex, and “Harry and Tonto” was a poignant portrait of aging. Read More

Beyond the Sling by Mayim Bialik (Beyond The Sling? Honey, I’m Still Trying To Get In One!)

Celebrity Baby Scoop
Mayim Bialik Debuts Book, Talks Attachment Parenting
Feb 28, 2012 by JENNY SCHAFER  

She first stole our hearts as the hat-wearing teen Blossom and the saucy young Bette Midler in Beaches. Now we love Mayim Bialik as the quirky neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory. Not only does she have an outstanding acting career, she also holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience and is one of the most hands-on moms in Hollywood.

Mayim opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her latest endeavour: her “memoir” on attachment parenting, Beyond the Sling. She says we are “so trained to believe that independence from a child and having a child that is independent is ‘best.'” The thoughtful mom-of-two also talks about her sons whom she homeschools, how she handles the criticism for her outspoken – and sometimes unpopular – views on attachment parenting, and her high-profile life: “I don’t fit in in Hollywood. I never really did.” Read More
