OK, if you’re not a dancer or a “Dancing With The Stars” fan, you probably don’t even know why it’s cool that I hung out with Louis Van Amstel tonight. He’s one of the pros on “DWTS” and has famously […]

Redemption Run

Date: February 21, 2011 at 12:07 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 14

You Made Me Do It

Date: February 17, 2011 at 8:56 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 6

This week has consisted of very little sleep and lots of activity. So it should come as no surprise that by 5 pm today, I was beat. I had packed a gym bag and planned to go to Carl Horowitz’s […]
