  Hi Ladies! So your Cyber Main Gay has been very busy with the NEW “ASK HARVEY” advice column for Betty. Look for the first video installment next week! Thanks for all the facebook messages and twitter drama! So many questions to choose from. I’ll try to get to them all. In the mean time, I’ve come across a new idea about losing weight. Like many of you, I’ve tried every diet on the market. I’ve decided that beauty is not a number. Not your age or dress size. It’s about finding a healthy weight and a radiant complexion!  …

All right girls! On a tight budget? Let’s get down and dirty. Well, not really since we’re talking skin care. The key is SIMPLICITY. Less is more? Not more money though thankfully. If you’re one of my beauty junkie friends who need the 12 step regimen to satisfy the Goddess in you, obviously this column may not be your cup of tea. However, you may add some of these products to your beauty arsenals as you please.  Ready? Put some lip gloss on those gorgeous lips of yours because we’re going shopping. Get into your car and set your GPS…

Yes ladies! It’s that time of year again. Although winter is in high gear, you’re all very aware somewhere in the back of your subconscious that spring is just seconds away. As your Cyber Main Gay, it’s my yearly duty to point out to you that the warm weather will be here soon enough and it will be time for swim suits……and yes girls………this year’s biggest trend………SHORT SHORTS.  Before you down a whole bag of Oreo’s from the stress of it all, I’m here to give you hope. You can do this. I’ll tackle swim suits in another column to…

For the last 25 years, there’s been a woman that we have quoted, admired and yes even some days idolized that is moving on. I know she’ll have  her OWN network but it sorts of feels like the loss of a sister who we could trust for everything from weight loss to the real celebrity dish. Yes my pretties for some reason I’m mourning Oprah!  I guess the biggest bummer is that I’ll never have the chance to be on her “Favorite Things” show! Like many of you, I dreamed of accidentally sitting in the audience to hear about “Menstrual…

All my girls know that as your Cyber Main Gay, I take the subject of accessories, very seriously. They can make or break any look. Especially when it comes to hand bags and totes, business or casual. I’m always on the hunt for the latest and greatest in work bags because so many of the accessories I see for women in the work place look….well….like a boring man should be carrying them. Many of my clients work in the legal profession so I’ve had to find options that are beautiful and functional,  while at the same time saying  “confidence and…

I don’t know if life is becoming more stressful or maybe we’re just sleep deprived from getting the most out of this life, but it seems everyone I look at today  has some under eye darkness. Me included. Oh my gay stars what is happening? Nothing can make you look more tired and yes, bitchy, than under eye darkness. Add puffiness and you might as well be the old hag from Snow White! We must take care of this immediately! And No I don’t want you to cake on concealer. I think it makes everyone look older or worse, like…

I Know. I know.  The Celebrity Apprentice? Really?  Sorry girls I can’t help myself.  This current season  is Crazy Good!  It’s kind of like Celebrity Rehab except Donald Trump is the boss of this loony bin where the mental patients are competing to win money for their favorite charity!  David Cassidy can’t stop taking cigarette breaks.  Dionne Warwick  is just  cranky and could play Madea’s mad black woman sister in Tyler Perry’s next film. Richard Hatch  is the most boring gay man ever.  At least it was interesting when he was the naked guy on Survivor. He should turn in…

Katie Perry. Jessica Simpson. P Diddy. Yes Ladies, even many of our beloved stars do breakout.  Even Barbra Streisand in her “Funny Girl” stage broke out.  I wonder if Lindsey Lohan is concealing blemishes with her possible jail time if she doesn’t win in court!  Recent photos show her wearing more foundation then usual! Hmmm? I have received so many requests from you girls lately about how to shorten the time of a blemish without  scarring the skin. What works fast?  If you stay up late at night there are a gazillion infomercials with their skin clearing systems.  It’s not…

I love to meet other beauty junkies! When we meet, we immediately know “You have the beauty gene! ” Just say the word “Mascara” or “Moisturizer”, and we’ll listen and chat for hours.  What I truly love about our “addiction”, is the diversity amongst my junkie sisters.  Some love the Dermatologist and in office products.  Some love there Nurse Practitioner and the magic that happens behind closed doors.  I’m a big fan of this with my BFF Lynn Bartels from Skin Spirit in Palo Alto California!  http://www.skinspirit.com/experts.html Others are consumed about finding the right concealer, lip balm…..It goes on and…

“WILL WORK FOR SHOES?” Well of course, I thought to myself, when my friend June Miller Richards, CEO & Founder of 6 Degrees of June, said “Harvey have you heard of Susan J. Ashbrook?” June is a fabulous BFF who arranged for me to be a celebrity panelist for an Angeleno Magazine event for Westfield Malls in Los Angeles alongside the fabulous MS. Ashbrook.  I’ve known of Susan for several years as the visionary woman who is credited for really creating the RED CARPET protocols that we know and love today. Not that dresses weren’t worn by celebrities in the…
