I was thinking about the Oscars and the mundane questions that celebs get asked at events like that. I read that there was a push to ask more insightful, less looks focused questions called Ask Her More. It was funny to hear Kevin Spacey get asked questions usually reserved for the lady celebs. He was so out of his element. I get that many women out there get excited to learn about the fashion and the styles that are worn, but in recent years, it seems to have gotten out of control. Women are being treated as if they are no longer people, just models and mannequins. I appreciate a good couture look myself – however I also realize the work and illusion that goes into it. Do young girls realize it though?
Then it got me thinking about someone like Kim Kardashian. She is known and ‘famous’ because of the way she looks. It’s all tied to her beauty – what happens when that youthful beauty starts to fade? Does her entire self worth go down the drain? It’s kind of sad if you think about it – every outfit she wears, every pound she gains, every mistake she makes – gets documented good and/or bad. I don’t envy someone so tied up into their physical attributes. Does anyone know if she actually makes any sort of valuable contribution to society? I am not saying she doesn’t, but no one sure as hell talks about that. Sure, she makes a ton of money from looking the way she does, but is it worth it? There are a ton of studies out there that prove money doesn’t buy happiness. Can you imagine the constant pressure she feels to look a certain way all the time? And how hard it is to constantly be the target for cruel jokes and criticism?
I bet she will be the type of celeb that constantly tries to keep her youthful appearance by trying the latest cosmetic procedure, and end up looking like she’s trying to hard. Embrace aging — a little help is one thing but so many of these aging stars just don’t know when to quit. Anyone notice Kim Novak at the Oscars? Oy vey….
Personally, I don’t have the time nor the desire to look like a beauty queen 24/7. There is so much more to life — look your best, embrace the experiences.

Watch more video of Charles tackling CrossFit.
You can call him Sir Charles, The Round Mound of Rebound, Olympic gold medalist, NBA MVP or hall of famer, and now you can call Charles Barkley a CrossFitter.
After a dominant pro career that spanned from 1984 to 2000, Barkley gained 100 lb. and struggled with injuries to his ankles, knees and shoulders. The legendary basketball star is now working out at CrossFit North Atlanta, and he’s hoping to reclaim his fitness.
“I don’t wanna die, so I want to get back into shape so I can enjoy my life,” Barkley says.
Working on movements with CrossFit North Atlanta staff and HQ flowmaster Chuck Carswell, Barkley talks about adjusting his diet to tackle the other half of the fitness equation. He’ll be looking to drop some weight over the next months, and then he’ll be working on his conditioning.
At that point, perhaps Barkley will start thinking about an NBA comeback … .
