The Genius of Joan Rivers and Other TV Beauty Products

No judgment here, but how many of us have had inappropriate thoughts about those Shake Weights commercials?  And the "fashion" Snuggie had me at, it's a leopard print blanket with sleeves.






As riveting as those products are, lately I've been fixated on two beauty items being hocked by comedian Joan Rivers. There's her Right to Bare Legs, a concealer you apply to your legs to hide unsightly blemishes, varicose veins, and even tattoos (her demo is big on body art).  Rivers claims her Right to Bare Legs will make your legs look younger, slimmer, and sexier.  It also promises to be sweat proof and water proof, and not to stain your clothes.


Rivers is also the mastermind behind Great Hair Day Fill-In Powder, which gives fine and thinning hair the illusion of volume and thickness.  I guess the funny lady has a thing for paint products.


Another as-seen-on-TV product that's caught my eye is the Cami Secret.  My hubby hipped me to this blouse-altering short-cut.  When you feel your cleavage is dipping a lil too low, add a lacey Cami Secret.  For those old enough to remember, it's a lace-version of a dickey.  It comes in assorted colors, attaches to your bra, and gives you the layered look without the bulk.  As silly as it seems, I'd try it if they design a style without the lace.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

The Re-Education of NeNe Leakes: The Reality Star Talks About College Hill, What Housewives She's Still Friends With and More

I’ve been a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta since the beginning.     So I jumped at the chance to chat with original RHOA cast member and breakout star NeNe Leakes.     It’s been a tough couple of years since NeNe parted ways with the show. In 2021 her husband Gregg lost his battle with colon cancer and earlier this year she filed a discrimination lawsuit against her former employer, Bravo. But on the brighter side, the 54-year-old is dating again and starring in the BET limited reality series,   College Hill: Celebrity Edition.    Along with other headline-grabbing reality TV stars including, Big Freedia, Lamar Odom, Stacey Dash and Ray J., NeNe and the members of the cast lived together and attended classes at the historically Black Texas Southern University.     We asked NeNe what it was like to go back to school, what the biggest misconception about her is, which housewives she's still friendly with, and more.   Everything She Wants : What did it feel like being back in
