The Snob Talks Bob Filner and Christine Beatty on NPR

I returned to the Beauty Shop segment of NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin today where we chatted about ex-San Deigo Mayor Bob Filner after he pled guilty to a series of lesser charges related to his sexual harassment case AND we talked about former mistress of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, Christine Beatty, who wrote about her role in "A Real Life Scandal" for Essence Magazine's November issue. 

Take a listen after the jump.

This time I was joined by my friends Keli Goff of The Root and Bridget Johnson of PJ Media. We talked about Syria, the whole Fast Company "Smart Women of Twitter" debacle and about child-free zones on airlines. Check it out after the jump.

The Snob Talks Miley's ... Um ... "Twerking" on NPR

On Thursday I went on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin to discuss Miley Cyrus' "twerking" all over the VMAs the past weekend and I went on with the clear goal to get four points across.

1. That was not twerking. She cannot twerk.

2. She also cannot sing, dance or put together a coherent or decent performance.

3. Wow. Black people as props. How inventive. (sarcasm)

4. Ugh. I don't care. The VMAs pulls these "stunts" every year. They're the stunt queen of award shows.

Listen to the show, featuring myself and Jessica Hopper of Rookie Mag after the jump.
