A lot of ‪#‎Hollywood‬ heartthrobs go after their nannies because these girls are young, adoring, and subservient. Since they’re barely out of their teens, their assessment faculties are not fully developed. (The prefrontal cortex of the brain skilled at weighing decisions doesn’t mature until the age of 25, if then.) And that’s just fine for the superficial, ego-driven actor. Meanwhile, the wife at home with the kids has seen beyond the mask of the movie star. Now she knows her box office draw is not so princely. So he loves that the nanny returns him to his imagined throne. And for this young girl to actually snag a star is the height of the “get.” Imagine her bragging rights with their impressionable, giddy girlfriends! Sadly, she misinterprets as “love" the excitement of stealing a heartthrob from his wife. But for a while, the nanny begins to believe her own press, just as the movie star has believed his. 

These unions can last—if the nanny remains naïve and enamored, and the heartthrob remains faithful. The likelihood of either or both of those situations occurring is thin.

Calling All Summer Angels!!

Ahhh, ‪#‎NYSunAndWarmth‬!!  FINALLY!!!  I wonder if I can discard my ‪#‎WinterSuede‬ yet!! We're still experiencing iffy weather patterns. But I hope we've seen the last of snow.

Yesterday, I practically skipped through the streets of Manhattan, because the sun made a big difference in my entire disposition.  I also got a lot more work accomplished.

I suffered from so much SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) this freezing, dull, snowy winter!  Can you tell that I'm pushing the season as hard as I can to bring us sunshine?  Last night, I wore a sheer, bright red top, just as I'd wear in summer.  

I just can't stand the cold anymore!!

#LittleBoyFilm is a MUST SEE MOVIE!

See #LittleBoy when it's released around the country on April 24th.  Set in the 40s during WWII, it's a beautiful story of deep father/son bonding.  This child will try anything to get his dad to return from the war.  The story is filled with all the things #CountryCures covers in our programs for veterans and their families:  self-esteem, conflict management, communication, anti-bullying, and diversity sensitivity.  

A slice of all our lives, there's a Little Boy in us all!!  Watch this trailer.  It's a true depiction of the movie's sensitivity.

Here I am with brilliant Producer and Actor, #EduardVerastegui, at the movie's NYC screening.  

The audience was filled with military.  I intend to use this film with our #CountryCures programs in relationship building for re-entering veterans and their families.

I walked out of the theatre with a combination of tears, laughter, and a pull at my heartstrings.  I know this film will do the same for our #CountryCures audiences!  SEE IT!!!

Justin Bieber: He’s ‘Hiding Something’ With His Apology Video

Fri, January 30, 2015 4:19pm EST by

Justin’s apology video has over 4 million Facebook views but even though he seems ‘sincere’ our experts feel like Justin isn’t telling his Beliebers everything because he shot it in the dark.

Justin Bieber was so overwhelmed after his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jan. 30, that he stayed up all night and posted a video for his fans explaining why he wasn’t himself. We were totally shocked by how honest he was being but our experts tell that he might not be as transparent as you think.

Justin Bieber: He’s ‘Hiding Something’ With His Apology Video

We spoke with psychiatrist, Dr. Carole Lieberman who pointed out that it definitely seems strange that the video was so dimly lit, even though it was shot late at night.

“Justin seems sincere,” she says. “Although, making the video in darkness means that he’s hiding something or is still afraid to show the real him. He needs to be in psychotherapy to help him rise above the pain of the haters and to follow through with his softer intentions.”
Wow, we never really looked at it like this. Justin did point out on Ellen that it was his first public appearance in a while and that he felt uncomfortable in the spotlight, so maybe that’s why it was so dark?
“It’s true that many performers are extroverts behind the mask of their art,” family therapist, Dr. Gilda Carle tells us. “For Justin Bieber, his mask is his hyped up, bad boy persona. However, behind that mask, he may very well be an insecure introvert, as many performers are, and one who really does care about how audiences view him. That’s not unusual. Most performers are very concerned about what people say about them. I think he’s probably being sincere about feeling nervous about appearing as a real guy who can talk without the mask of his performance or his bad boy persona.”
Dr. Gilda also adds: “As Bieber is about to turn 21, it’s nice to see that he’s willing to admit he’s been ‘pretending’ and ‘covering up’ his inner feelings. Actually, the true person behind the mask is probably very insecure. But it’s a sign of growing up to admit this insecurity, and to want to turn over a new leaf by being real. Good for him!”

We think that Justin was coming from a good place and we really hope he turns things around!
HollywoodLifers, do you agree with the experts?
