[Arts Insider] Joan Rivers: “That’s Life!”



“(That) I’m still there…and still relevant!”
— 80-year-old Joan Rivers’ answer to Today’s Woman’s question: 'What career accomplishment has given you the most joy?’

March is Women’s History Month, which explains why, when speaking with Joan Rivers’ publicist over the phone last month, I was passionate about wanting a phone interview with the 80-year-old show business legend, whom I’d last interviewed when she was in the area four years ago this month.

Try this salad dressing to keep your heart healthy

Heart healthy salad dressing

When it comes to the little things you can do to make big changes in your heart's health, one of the easiest- and tastiest- ways is to ditch the salad dressings. It is such a common mistake people make these days; thinking they'll eat a salad and it'll be healthier. However, it is the dressing that can ruin all of the health benefits of a salad. Those thick, creamy, calorie-packed dressings can really add on the pounds and take a toll on your heart.

Oh the romance!

Though the winner has been chosen, see all of the photos that were sent in as part of our Show The Love photo contest. Love is definitely in the air with these cute couples.

Just Ask Joyce: "My husband is controlling. Help!"

Q: “My husband is controlling. I knew that when I married him last year, so I guess I bought my own trouble. But he has gotten worse since we married. We have already had an argument over my Facebook account, and I had to close it. Now, he wants me to give up my two long-time friends. He says it’s only because we should spend all of our time together and get adjusted in our marriage. He has mentioned me quitting my job now and start trying to have a baby. We had agreed to wait five years to begin a family. How can I convince him that I need a life outside of marriage?"

Healthy Smoothie Recipes

Some days we're just not in the mood, not hungry, running late, being lazy and don't want to cook. Especially if it's just you, it's easy to skip out on breakfast and not think anything of it. Skipping out on breakfast can have a major effect on your health. Eating breakfast is so important, as we've all heard before, because it gets your metabolism going, gets the blood flowing and simply starts your day off right. If you're tired with your same old breakfast routine or are looking for something more slimming but also filling, check out these great (and delicious) smoothie recipes by POP Sugar.
