The Functionally Broken

How many people all smiles on social media, walking the red carpet at an awards show, or sitting across the table from you are one disappointment, one bad break, one devastating breakup from break down, even suicide? Kristoff St. John, whom I’ve admired for almost 3 decades as Neil Winters on the Emmy Winning soap […]

Don’t Bring Fear To A Faith Fight

If Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real, then what is faith?  Is faith hope?  And what does that hope hinge on?  What is the substance that fuels real hope, not the play-play kind?  In “Don’t Bring Fear To A Faith Fight,” I explore what happens after we a make significant step towards what we hope […]

My Interview with Cinderella

Suzette:  Thank you so much Cinderella for allowing me the opportunity to interview you. We were all glued to our televisions as we watched the Prince walk in with that one glass slipper and place it on your foot.  I could feel the intensity of that moment as I watched.  I can only imagine how […]

Men Don’t Do Closure So You’ll Have To Give It To Yourself

A woman on The Steve Harvey Show shared a break up that left her stuck.  When he inquired further about it, she said, “I didn’t get closure.”  Steve’s response?  “Men don’t do closure.” Suffering a traumatizing break up is hard.  It doesn’t matter whether you experienced it yesterday or 30 years ago, or whether it […]

The Art of Love Jones

The Crackling, Popping and Skipping of the Unavailable Man

Love Doctor Rob, a guest speaker at last year’s You Asked? Good Men […]

What’s A Card On Valentine’s Day! He’s Gay!!

One of the questions posed by one of the loyal listeners of Straight Wives Radio Show was what does healthy heterosexual relating look like. It is sad when a straight woman has to ask that question.  Nonetheless, many Straight Wives don’t know.  Last night’s show only confirmed it. Straight Wives have a song rarely heard. […]

For The Love Of Valentine’s Day

To some, Valentine’s Day is nothing but a scheme to line the pockets of retailers.  Not to Statistics Be Darned.  This is their second year sponsoring Celebrate A Single Sweetheart.  Single women–those for whom the statistics don’t look favorable when it comes to finding love or getting married–are entered into a drawing to receive a […]
