Currently, this fun piece of music and I aren’t meeting under the most pleasant circumstances. Kimberly Guilfoyle used to be married to former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, and at that time we heard way too much about her in the local media. Oddly (this is my taste for irony talking), she always seemed like kind of an airhead. An overly … Continue reading Awful Flashback
