A writer for the New York Times recently reviewed the Kardashian's DASH boutique and he didn't hold back.
After visiting 119 Spring St with his friends, Jon Caramanica had this to say about the sister's cash cow:
On the clothes:
"Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drapey cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers.
Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon. Fleur tried on an animal print dress with a shirred effect ($308), pairing it with a Eugenia Kim ushanka without flaps, made of coyote ($430). You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist."
"'High-end knockoffs,' scoffed Bolt — which is to say, overpriced knockoffs of already overpriced things. A long-sleeved hot pink velvet minidress by Backstage ($176) was a direct Betsey Johnson rip, and one of only a handful of splashes of color in the store.
On his overall review:
"We had to concur: As in most theme parks, there wasn’t anything worth carrying away but memories."
It may be a harsh review, but we can't say we're surprised by any of his comments.

And we mean A LOT!
Whitney Houston is having daily prayer meetings to help her along her world tour and is reportedly reading from the Bible to her employees.
A source reveals:
“Whitney is in a spiritual place now, which is really working for her. The meetings are for everyone on the tour to join in, and Whitney enjoys reading out passages from The Bible.”
Girlfriend needs a prayer after the scathing reviews she's been getting! But Whitney doesn't seem bothered by the critiques saying:
“It was a really tough crowd. I’m still struggling with my throat and I’m sucking these sweets to try and help me through. But yeah, they were tough. I heard they were a little pissed off, I understand. I still loved it though, I just love being back on stage.”
And the drug rumors, Whit?
"At this point, I just don't respond. I don't even read it. My health is terrific. But this is a time when I get a lot of allergies."
Right…allergies! Oldest excuse in the book!

Here we go again!
Roseanne is back to her blog, this time with a lot of HARSH words directed at the Catholic church!
the pedo priests are trying to cover up the number of LITTLE GIRLS they have molested too, as if that doesn't matter as much as what happens to boys. Trust me, the number of girls raped and molested by priests is at least double the boys. They are trying to cover it all up so that they can end up purging gay priests, and laying the blame on them. The fact is pedos like to rape both boys and girls, and only a small number of pedos are exclusively into male children. I am starting to think that any parent who takes their kids to catholic churches from now on should lose custody. Taking your kid where you know sex offenders hang out is inexcusable!!!
Once again a passionate, albeit unfounded entry.
We know your heart is in the right place, and we certainly have issues with the Catholic church, but it's a bit much to attack parents trying to instill faith in their kids!
What do U think??
Does Roseanne have a point or is she out of line??
