Miles admits a big challenge is bringing to life a woman with views vastly different from her own and giving that to show-goers. "As an actor you believe in yourself," Miles says.

    Do women finally have an excuse to stop blow drying hair? "The wob," also known as the "wet bob," is apparently the hot new hairstyle this spring. I went to Femme Coiffure on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach where stylist Raphael Reboh helped me try the wet look for myself. Raphael says the wet look is a sexy look. He says it's beautiful and easy and great for the summer.

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect from James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in Broadway's "Of Mice and Men." But in the end both of them blew me away. The show is a must-see this Broadway season, especially if you've always been fond of the novel. I haven't been able to shake the memory of George and Lenny since I first read "Of Mice and Men" in English class. I'd describe Franco and O'Dowd's performances the same way: unforgettable.
