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.

In a clip (viewable here) from this coming Sunday's episode of "Keep...

Anyone who has been in the film industry for any extended period of time, or happened to grow up in it like I did, knows that the month of January is where most films go to die.  January is like a dum...

As a student of the theater I am no stranger to “subtext”.   In school we would spend weeks pouring over scripts figuring out what our characters were REALLY thinking or REALLY saying in any given mom...

Let’s talk about Netflix:  the phenomenon that has recently joined the likes of cell phones, modern medicine, and Chipotle at the top of our “WHAT DID WE EVER DO WITHOUT THEM?” list.  I was skeptical...

This week, after a 6 year absence from the music industry, the girl who singlehandedly inspired the fashion and hair choices of almost every pre-teen in the early 2000s (except me of course… my mother...

Well ladies and gentlemen, the end is nigh.  In just 5 days time we will know who this year's Bachelorette Andi has chosen to spend the rest of her life with.  That is, if the man she chooses actually...

Whoopi Goldberg once explained to me her theory as to why skinny people can be so bitchy:

“It’s because they’re hungry.”

Perfect, right?

THAT is why this week’s Bless Your Heart goes out to CNN’s Hungrie...

So this past Sunday night were the Billboard Music Awards.  Now I'd be lying if I said I watched them.  Music awards shows have never really been my thing.  For instance last summer when the internet...

So it was the Dancing With the Stars Semi-Finals on Monday night.  High stakes. Especially when there is such incredible talent.  I mean Olympians Meryl Davis and Charlie White, Paralympian Amy Purdy...

If you are a fan of the "Game of Thrones" television series on HBO, then you know just how often Sansa Stark's heart needs blessing.  Now for those of you who have not watched the show, or read the bo...

I went on an OkCupid date with a fella the other night who said, "You'll crucify me for saying this but I don't like Beyoncé. She has no natural talent." I wish I had known about this little video bec...

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!
