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...

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...

So last Friday morning I woke up at 6:00am, dressed up (as instructed) like I was attending “a nice dinner”, and walked the few blocks down from my apartment to ABC studios to stand in line with some...

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...

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...

So that thing that I flew out to LA to audition for... It was an episode of ABC's "SCANDAL".  And that thing I was celebrating in Palm Springs?  That would be the fact that I booked the part!  I figur...

I encountered another DDD tonight.  (DDD = Displaced Debutante Dichotomy… I’ve started using this acronym to refer to those moments in my life where my two worlds collide to form a bit of a paradox.)...

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!
