Say it in 60: Studio 5

This week on Studio 5, host Brooke Walker did a segment called “Say it in 60,” where she asked me a series of rapid-fire questions for one minute. I answered them on the spot as quickly as I could, and the results were sometimes hilarious!

Watch the video to find out if I prefer manicures or pedicures, diamonds or pearls, and diet Coke or regular Coke. I also reveal my secret talent.

The best part is toward the end when Brooke asks me what I think of when I hear the phrase “power tool.” (Hint: it’s a beauty product!)

When Your Partner’s Adorable Habits Become Annoying: WSJ Interview

fatal attraction

Have you ever been annoyed by certain habits or quirks of your partner that you once found endearing?  Perhaps you were drawn to a man because you admired his work ethic, but then later came to see him as a workaholic.  Or maybe you initially liked how a woman was dedicated to physical fitness, but eventually  felt she was self-absorbed.  This phenomenon, which experts refer to as a fatal attraction, can wreak havoc on relationships.

I had the opportunity to give my insight on this topic in a new Wall Street Journal article out today entitled, “How to Cope When You and Your Partner are Falling Out of Love.” Other relationship experts and I discuss how to appropriately handle this fatal attraction in such ways as recognizing that every character trait has pros and cons, reflecting on what you do appreciate about your romantic partner, and considering how the other person brings balance to the relationship.
