Leah Remini, Welcome Home!

A few months ago, I was at a taping of the NBC game show “I Can Do That!”, which included dancer/choreographer Cheryl Burke (“Dancing With the Stars”) as a contestant. I was sitting in the green room with Burke’s then-beau, restaurateur J.T. Torregiani, and one of Burke’s friends, former “King of Queens” star Leah Remini. […]

Can One Child’s Smile Redeem the World?

Just when you think the world is saturated with evil, that human life is cheapened beyond measure, and that the miracle of life has been reduced to a mere commodity up for sale to the highest bidder — or an inconvenience, to be outsourced by busy people who can afford it — one little British boy […]

HBO’s John Oliver Mixes Metaphors in Megachurch Satire

On Sunday, Aug. 16, HBO’s comedy/news show “Last Week With John Oliver” took on “Televangelists,” with the British comedian and former “The Daily Show” correspondent launching a blistering attack on the Prosperity Gospel, its well-heeled proponents and the tax laws that shield their wealth.

Catholics, Called Beyond Apathy

Having lived in Germany for most of the summer, I’ve had the opportunity to listen to some German music, specifically German indie rock and rap.

She’s wife to New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, mother to four (Grace, Naomi, Isaiah and Judah), with one more on the way — and a college athlete in her own right — but the thing that Kirsten Watson wants most is to be a “good daughter” to God. And she feels that love, […]

‘The Briefcase': Catholic and Trans Couples Face Decisions

Tonight is the season finale of CBS’ reality show “The Briefcase,” which pairs two families in financial difficulty, gives each one a briefcase containing $101,000 — but neither family knows at first that there’s another family involved — and then the families must decide whether to keep all of the money or give all or […]

This Is Not ‘The Encyclical’ You Were Looking For (But It’s Funny)

Courtesy of Observatório do Clima, a nonprofit based in Brazil, that advocates for action on climate change. Pope Francis’ real encyclical on the environment is released worldwide on June 18, and as with most things, it probably won’t live up to the hype of the trailer (or the hype, in general). But, enjoy: Image: YouTube screenshot […]

Megyn Kelly Interviews the Duggar Parents and Daughters (Video)

When you live your life on TV, it then becomes your judge, your jury and your confessional. At the bottom of this post, find links to the entire interview Megyn Kelly of Fox News conducted with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” broadcast on her show “The Kelly File,” on […]
