Former coach Isiah Thomas recently met with Knicks owner James Dolan

Keywords: james dolan, isiah thomas

 

The past decade and a half has been ugly for fans of the New York Knicks. One of the lowlights of those years was the Isiah Thomas sexual harassment scandal, along with his dismal performance as coach of the Knicks. When the Knicks hired Donnie Walsh to put the roster together, the Knicks started heading into the positive direction that we see them still going in today. But owner James Dolan just couldn’t stop his obsession with Isiah, and as the two continued to meet, Walsh opted to leave the circus at the Garden. Last Friday Dolan and Isiah met once again. The Daily News says the meeting about a position for Isiah, who is not quite ready to come back to the NBA.

 

“Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he’s told me that he’s not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet. There’s this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that’s false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now.”

The New York Post also reported on the meeting:

“The Knicks declined comment on the meeting other than to offer it should not be construed as significant that Dolan and Thomas, who have maintained a friendship, had a business meeting. With an eventful summer filled with a series of roster additions, Dolan may well have wanted to pick Thomas? brain on his new team.”

Whatever the reason for the meeting one thing is for sure. Jimmy Dolan will always be the thing holding back the New York Knicks. He is a man of the money and he is in it for himself. Notice how once he let Glen Sather actually do his job for the Rangers that they finally became a powerhouse. As long as Jimmy runs the show he will continue to bring in washed up veterans, much like he did with the Rangers of a decade ago.




Chipped polish is a ‘no’ in my book!

Keyword: nails, polish, chipped, manicure

Welcome back to Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Monday is always a bummer, I know…but if you can get through today you are one step closer to NEXT weekend!!

 

Now on to my topic-

Back in my  Jr. high/early high school days is was the popular thing to be kind of grungy.  It was the cool thing to paint your nails a dark color and pick it off immediately. Not all of it though…it had to look like you painted your nails a month ago and never got around to giving yourself another manicure.  Today, however-this is not so cool!  If you can’t keep up with your manicures then don’t paint them with color.  Do a clear coat and it will go unnoticed if you haven’t touched them up in a few weeks.  You could be all prim and proper, have on nice business attire or a fashionable outfit to go out in…but if your nail nail polish is all chipped off if could ruin your whole look!  Don’t be one of these people!




It’s never a good thing!

Some time ago I posted a video called “My Boyfriend Does My Makeup” It was very funny and very cute.  Well this one I believe might be even funnier!  When he gets to her lipstick I actually started laughing out loud.  And then he pulled out the sharpie and I lost it!  The videos are so much fun.  I really want to get the fiance to do with with me!!




It’s a crazy, obsessed, fan?

 

Keyword: Superman, plastic surgery

Can we just talk about this for a few minutes? Superman?! Really? Herbert Chavez, 35 of the Philippines, is so obsessed with Superman, he went through several cosmetic surgeries just to look like him!! Since 1995,  Chavez has has a chin augmentation to get the infamous cleft, a nose job to look more like Christopher Reeves, lip injections, and even thigh implants to look more muscular….among other procedures. I’ll admit it, Superman is cool…and a pretty good looking superhero, but to go under the knife just to look like him is a little bizzar! And!!!- the best part is, he’s not done.  He claims he will be going in for yet another surgery. This one is supposed to make him taller. At only 5′ myself, I’m interested in knowing how they go about this! haha

 

If you could choose to look like any super hero…or villain I suppose, who would you choose? I think I’d go with She-Ra. She was always my favorite growing up.

Landry, Lin, and Lopez all receive qualifying offers

Keywords: landry fields, jeremy lin, brook lopez

 

The Knicks and Nets made the first step in retaining some key players today by giving them qualifying offers. What this means is that if any teams try to sign these players, the Knicks and Nets can match the offer without worrying about going over the salary cap. Now the three players in question all had some pretty tumultuous seasons.

 

 

First is the obvious, Jeremy Lin. Linsanity swept over New York and a superstar was born. But as quickly as Lin came he went, injuries plagued his season and we still don’t know what we might get. Speaking of injuries Brook Lopez missed almost all of last season with the Nets. If they hold onto him he will be a key piece to their Brooklyn debut. And finally Landry Fields. Landry had…..a forgettable season in his sophomore campaign. But regardless he too will be retained. So now we will hopefully get a chance to see how these three players fair next season in New York.




Okay, well her face does at least!

Keyword: Teri Hatcher, make-up, botox, celebrities

Keeping with the last botox article, I thought I’d post something that would lift women’s spritis a bit! Sometime back in May Teri Hatcher posted on her FB wall photos of herself coming right out of the shower.  She wanted to prove to the world that you can be beautiful without make-up, surgery, implants, or botox! Watch as she expresses her face to prove she has not been pricked with a needle.

 

In an album titled,’Oy with Botox’ Hatcher wrote in part:

‘Out of the bath getting ready for bed. Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what “they” say. Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about “beauty” and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.’

‘Did I every toy with fillers or Botox over the years? yes. Tell me does this look Botoxed to you?’

‘Oh look I can raise my eyebrows and wrinkles show up on my forehead.’

‘I can look both ways too.So I guess I”m safe to cross the street then’

‘Yes I am alone in my bathroom naked in a towel on behalf of women everywhere trying to make a point. Women YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL’

‘I can be mad, or confused or sad and tired. Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in Eat Pray Love. Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey.’

‘Hope you learned something. You create your own paradise or prison. Being happy inside is all that matters. Find that in whatever way works for you. See something in the mirror you love every day.’

 

Teri, you are my new hero! I have always said that I am going to allow myself to age gracefully!  I know in Hollywood it’s probably not that easy. I almost feel like I need to bow down to her for keeping her cool all these years!  She is a stunning woman and at 45, I will feel proud to look half as good as she does!
