Yep.  It’s like legally blonde! But for REAL!
Blake Lively told the public at large one of her super deep and dark secrets (probably while wearing one of the Age of Adelaide costumes. What are we on? Like knit frock #79?). She recently admitted during an interview with Stylist (via Radar), that one of her dreams is to go to Harvard Business School. Yep, you heard right.

A Constitutional Challenge to NYC's Ban on Dancing

Posted 2 months ago
It's a familiar story: A handsome stranger moves to town. He's been working so hard, punching his card. And he's got this feeling that he needs to tear up this town. So, of course, he wants to cut loose.

MARILYN MAYE -- HER WAY: A TRIBUTE TO FRANK SINATRA *** out of ****
54 BELOW

Do I need to launch a Kickstarter campaign? Somebody, somewhere needs to get Marilyn Maye into a recording studio, pronto. She's been captured on record (The Lamp Is Low is a great place to start) but not nearly as much as her talent deserves. Rosemary Clooney had a late career resurgence via Concord ...
