"It's the day of the show, ya'll!" -- Waiting for Guffman

It's the day of the GRAMMYs. It's the day of the GRAMMYs!

Primping has commenced, a dress has been selected and will be slithered into, and it's time to get started with the onslaught of music royalty! I'm here with Elisa Camahort Page and Erin Groh of BlogHer -- back in Los Angeles just a week after I left "for good."

I never thought I'd find myself at the GRAMMYs. I accepted many an Oscar in front of my bathroom mirror, but never a GRAMMY. Even when pretending, I was fully aware that I suffered from the inability to carry a good tune. I am the epitome of "pitchy." Fortunately, I've got Elisa here to comment on the winners, losers, and performances.

What's nice about my bad ear is that I am free to fully appreciate the phenomenal GRAMMY-nominated artists. They have a talent that I don't. I am in awe of them.

Stay tuned as we continue updating from this day (and night)!

Grammys crystal ball10 pmNo cameras were allowed at the GRAMMYs, but iPhones were okay. If you look closely at this fuzzy picture, you might see Katy Perry inside a big crystal ball. She was later burned at the stake.

Elisa GRAMMY makeup11:30 am: Elisa's before-and-after makeup -- super glam, no?

Jenni pedicure10:40 am: Before I can appreciate any GRAMMY-nominated artists, my nails need to be award-show-ready.

PLEASE NOTE: I don't know whether I'll be able to update during the show or party, but BlogHer's editors are here to fill you in with observations and pictures then -- and I'll make sure to fill you in as soon as I can.

I Just Said Good-Bye to LA. But Now I'm Back ... for the Grammys!

Today I am full of questions I never thought I'd ask myself: What will life be like now that I've left Los Angeles? Will I be able to really let the hope of returning to my acting career go? How do I process being back in the City of Angels... the city I left just seven days ago... and what the hell am I going to wear to the freaking GRAMMYs? Yes, you read correctly: G-R-A-M-M-Y-S.   Read more >

Thank You for Reading my Blog

Another blogger posted something on Facebook, and it struck me.  I was busy at the time, and when I went back to try and find the status update, it was lost in a stream of back to school pictures, pets, and the occasional gripe about the weather.  I'm pretty sure this is almost kind of near exactly what it said: Want a slice of humble pie?  Do a search on your blog for the phrase 'thank you for writing this'.  If nothing comes up, well...   Read more >

Arianna Huffington Returns to Keynote BlogHer in 2014

In May of 2005, a scant two months before the first BlogHer Conference, a new site called the Huffington Post was born. That was back when trying to build a business via blogging was uncharted territory. One year later, Arianna Huffington was a featured keynote speaker at BlogHer '06, our second annual event. Arianna spoke about the HuffPost, of course, but she also spoke quite poignantly about sleep. The need for sleep. How badly most of us lack sleep.   Read more >
