I'm writing today from a Starbucks on 42nd Street in the heart of Times Square.  The center of everything. Where the worlds of a "kind-of sort-of" Iron Man and a "maybe if I squint a little" Hello Kit...

Well, friends... the jig is up.  It's the end of the road.  We can all pack up and go home.  Kylie Jenner's lips are fake.

So in light of recently being added to the list “Mississippi Celebrities” on Twitter alongside the likes of Britney Spears, Channing Tatum, and OPRAH (oh my goodness Oprah, I’ve made it, y’all), I tho...

Greetings from Los Angeles!!  It's sunny and 72 today and I'm wearing sandals.  Hell, I was wearing sandals the other night when it was rainy and 55 degrees - even that felt like spring compared to wh...

My name is Mary Lane Haskell and my two "claims to fame" are that I have Dolly Parton's fax number and that Reese Witherspoon once liked a post on my Instagram.  I am an actor, a writer, and a profound Chipotle enthusiast making my way in Los Angeles while trying to stay true to my family's southern roots, all with grace and a touch a good humor.  I'm so glad you're here!
