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 "Keeping Up with The Kardashians", or as I like to call it the end of civi...

After a 5 week absence, I am finally back in New York, and have a message for my favorite (read: least favorite) faction of city folk:

Hipsters... Bless Your Heart.

I'm speaking exclusively to the male variety tonight.  Listen gents, you are absolutely entitled to your o...

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 what the weather in New York has been.  My phone just rang with yet ano...

This week’s edition of B.Y.H. is pretty self-explanatory.  I mean… just look at the note I found from my Super taped on my door when I got back to my apartment Monday night:

Okay.  Let’s pick this apart.

1)  “We are going to do this tomorrow.”  There are two things wrong...

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 girlfriends for a taping of LIVE with Kelly and Michael.  I’ve lived...

Many days late and several dollars short… especially after I just dropped $16.00 at Whole Foods for a lunch consisting of Carrot Ginger Soup and a tiny kale salad (which I still can’t ENTIRELY get behind by the way… my cousin Rachel has an incredible farm in Southeast...

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!
