Blind Item: Pay for play

What Chicago candidate for the Senate appeared at the Heart 4 Haiti benefit last night but didn't pay the required donation? 


The public pays at their fundraisers so why shouldn't the candidate at this benefit?

Mr Right or Mr Good Enough?

So I saw this book in the new issue of Marie Claire

Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough
Hitting the shelves on Feb 4th this book is about:

explores the dilemma that so many women today seem to face--how to reconcile the strong desire for a husband and family with a list of must-haves so long and complicated that many great guys get rejected out of the gate…. its time to reevaluate what we really need in a partner.

"I wish I could round up every single woman I know and assign this book for discussion. Gottlieb helps women see how our cultural or private fantasies build up so many expectations that they destroy the possibility of real love and, eventually, marriage. Marry Him is a big fat lesson in how not to get in your own way. Any woman who wants to find true love and hasn't been able to should read this book." -Pepper Shwartz, Ph.D., relationship expert at

I LOVE books and reading, I do. I just feel that if you want to know something and expand knowledge, vocab and all that fun stuff…read. It takes you to different time periods, different emotions …let me stop shoving my beliefs down your throat (lol) and just say I think for all women this is a must read!

Have you ever thought that you let ‘the one’ slip away because you were dealing with ‘Mr Right Now who would turn into Mr Right’? (Shyly raises my hand). I let good opportunities pass me up (moving to Atlanta for a year with a resident doctor…all expenses paid even my rent here in the Chi ) because I was so in love with “Mr damn old and set in his ways to marry my ass.” We broke up soon after I turned down that offer. Nough said.

I will read this book to help the wheels turn in my head a little.

Whose up for reading this? Lets do a book club style meeting with drinks, the book and laughter. Anyone?

Artistic impression is now called swagger jacking

Don’t you hate when you buy a clothing item or jewelry or shoes and you see someone else with them? Is it worse if it’s a friend? Do you say inside your head…”that bish swagger jacked me?’ Sometimes but a majority of the time you say…”we have the same taste and I rocked it better. ” LOL

That’s what happened in this Melody Thornton incident.

Mel gets on twitter (the new home of the brave it seems) and bitches about Ciara swaggerjacking her style on ‘L’Officiel’ magazine cover. Ciara did the ‘hold my ponytail in a picture’ move! How dare she?'

Pish posh take a bath.

Beyonce started this with her video, Single Ladies when she grabs her ponytail and at the end of her performance at the American Music Awards. BUT ALSO this is a common move among the drag divas that perform. Its been known for a long time that while they whip their ponytails around while performing they also hold the end of the ponytail and give a ‘fierce’ look.

So Mel why didn’t you pick on Beyonce? Or the dragalicious divas? Oh right because she is Beyonce and because you probably didn’t even know where YOU got it from. Maybe Ciara had time to see your picture and say hey one day I’ll copy that or maybe there was an artistic director or even the photographer on set that said Ciara grab the end of your pony and work it!

Swagger jacking? Yes, YOU swagger jacked the divas. Priceless

What is this about B?

I know your wondering what the hell is Mrs Windy City Un PluGGed? Well it’s me and not the journalist, not the entertainment/gossip girl. It’s a little crazier, cluttered and edgy. It’s like a big collage!

I’ll be talking about a little gossip here and there, cool pictures of shoes, friends, events and fashion. Glimpse some pictures of celebs that roll through Chi town, (send in yours if you like) and a little advice on some things that I definitely know about and just ranting (lol).

If you have been following me, you know I started Mrs Windy City in Nov of 2007 with some exclusives and focusing solely on Chicago. It led me to write and produce podcasts for In Chi City. I’ve moved along and now write a column for Chicagonista. This is just a creative outlet in order to get some things off my chest, show you some things I do and be fun. Any suggestions, improvements etc just email me @ and don’t forget to follow me on twitter: mrswindycity
