Hello my darling subscribers and HAPPY MONDAY.

We have a lot of content this week that’s more video/TikToks. I didn’t even get into the MUST SEE TV so JUST for you my darlings:


A DEEP DIVE into Q ANON which I admit I did not know how much I DID NOT KNOW and it is a mind blowing thing.


AND…WHO knew ART galleries and fraud was SO FASCINATING. You have to watch this.

This week’s PCM is HERE and as always…

…feedback welcome (only if it is lovely obviously) and PLEASE share with everyone you know. And if you want to sponsor this newsletter YOU CAN…for a million dollars…or some cheese.



The “BODY” Edition

Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my pop culture junkies! And congrats to ALL my friends across the pond in the UK who are coming out of lockdown today. Pubs are open. Shops are open (go to BELLA FREUD ON CHILTERN STREET IMMEDIATELY) and there might be nothing I enjoy more than seeing my friends in London Instagrams and TikToks today….the joy and the humor. Nothing better.

This was a tough week to put into a newsletter so forgive me for skipping over some things you might be curious about, whether TikTok dramas (there are so many) to the deaths of DMX and Prince…

Hello my darling PCM subscribers!

Sorry I am a bit late today, but I just found there was SO much to get thru this week I kept getting pushed and pulled in different directions.

We cover a lot. But something I totally skipped over was DID YOU KNOW that the much talked about outdoor patio furniture (I mean if your patio is on a $75 million estate in Montecito) from the Harry and Meghan interview with Oprah was designed BY PETER BRADY?? The guy who played Peter Brady but we will always call him Peter Brady. And actually it was NOT that expensive:



This week’s PCM is HERE and as always:

  • Feedback WELCOME
  • Please share with anyone you think will get a kick out of it

Have a beautiful week!!



The “VAXXED” Edition

Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my darling pop culture junkies! Some of you are on spring break or just back from spring break but MANY of you are vaccinated which is amazing amazing amazing. I always wear a mask when I am outside and even when I am walking my dog in my quiet neighborhood early early in the morning. This weekend I walked by another couple who were across the street also wearing masks but they waved and said “we are vaccinated!” and I was genuinely so happy for them. “Yay me too”! I said back. I don’t know them. Never saw…

The CEREAL Edition

Welcome to my brain…

Happy MONDAY MY POP CULTURE JUNKIES!!! Sorry for the yelling but I am just so ready to kick off this week and put the past week behind us. From cereal drama to the boat getting stuck in the Suez Canal to the boat getting UNSTUCK in the Suez Canal to Chrissy Teigen leaving the Twitter to Medium, this VERY platform I love and have found my voice on, changing course and everyone is up in arms…I couldn’t keep it all straight. IT WAS EXHAUSTING. Also, I am back home in LA which is so weird to say…HOME in LA like…

Hello my darling subscribers AND happy Monday!

I am coming to you live from Florida where it is 59 degrees and cloudy so YAY. But I am happy and fortunate to be here with my family who I haven’t seen in over a year so I am going to go annoy them now but not before PCM!

This week’s edition (HERE) tackles important issues…and literally the least important issues all in one place. A little bit for everyone.

As always, feedback welcome and wanted. AND PLEASE SHARE THIS ON YOUR SOCIALS!




Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my darling pop culture junkies. You MIGHT notice this week’s PCM has come a bit earlier than normal these days and THAT is because I am in Florida at the moment. FLORIDA??? During SPRING BREAK??? DURING COVID? Why yes, that is correct. So I can actually share a little insight here as to what I saw with my own eyes. First of all, I am so grateful I have been able to travel after over a year of not seeing my family and everyone is safe and healthy. I am not in Miami…at the moment. BUT I WAS…

Happy Monday my darling subscribers.

I hope you had a magical weekend and are ready to face the week…or I guess many of you are already almost done with your Monday. THIS WEEK WAS A SLOG to get thru. There is a lot…a lot of heavy stuff (pic above for one) and a lot of light stuff. I suggest a drink or a bag of crisps whilst reading it this week. And LOTS OF VIDEO!

As always, feedback welcome. And please share with all!




The “Women Should be Able to Walk Home Safely” Edition

Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my DARLING pop culture junkies. I am not going to lie…I have been sitting here looking at that dreaded blank white screen for literally HOURS with no idea as to what to write or how even to start. I must have written this first line dozens of times only to delete it and start over. We shall see if this one makes the cut but it just is ONE of those days. Maybe because it is dark and rainy and gloomy and cold in LA which throws me off my game. Maybe it’s because I am getting on…
