The Chattanooga-raised actor, singer, and writer, 66, has had a solid career in...

While the topics can make for some awkward comedy, everything is done in good fun and for the sake of personal development. “Ex-Rated” aims to “challenge adult singles of all ages and backgrounds...
As Psychology Today puts it, "​​celebrity in America has always given us an outlet for our imagination, just as the gods and demigods of ancient Greece and Rome once did.” We tend to dissect the publicised events of a celebrity’s life through the lens of hindsight, constructing our own tenuous mythology. July 23rd marked ten years since Amy Winehouse’s death at only 27 by alcohol poisoning, and in that time her narrative has been cobbled together from disturbing anecdotes and paparazzi pictures to create a...
