Technology now allows us to connect with others more than ever, yet rates of loneliness have doubled in the since the 1980s. Today, over 40% of adults in the U.S. report feeling lonely, with some experts saying this may grow to become our #1 killer.

Today therapist and relationship expert Damon L Jacobs joins us to look at the loneliness epidemic we are facing and the ways it’s manifesting itself in hook up apps and how we think about ourselves.

If he thought he was bringing sexy back, he was wrong.

If Justin Timberlake really wanted to bring sexy back, he would have had Janet Jackson there.

Uma Thurman feels guilty about empowering Harvey Weinstein and is still in pain from a stunt she felt was coerced into doing by Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino.

i post this clip to memorialize it’s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd. the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent. Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so i could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible. he also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage. THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.

An online hookup goes horribly wrong when a Grindr date asked a guy for his digits, and he didn’t expect this.
