Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. Okay, my name is actually Shannon Bradley-Colleary.
ON MARRIAGE AND SEX: Do you feel guilty that you fantasize you’re a hot-blooded Flamenco dancer having a torrid affair with Chris Hemsworth after an international dance competition in Firenze, Italia after which he drinks vodka out of your belly button?
ON PARENTING: Were you accused by your then 4-year old of “Cutting the Fun!”?
ON BEAUTY: Do you wish you knew how all of the celebrities over 40 look so good? I mean, are they moisturizing with yak semen?
ON BODY IMAGE: Could you solve Poverty if you spent less time wondering how to stop your thighs from rubbing together?
ON MY ASSHAT RECOVERY PROGRAM: While I patiently waited for my ex-boyfriend to come out of his Cave, I didn’t realize the Cave he was in was another woman’s vagina.
If you answered yes to any of these questions then this blog is for you.
I live in Los Angeles with my screenwriter husband Henry and my two daughters Clare (13) and Bridget (11). I began in Los Angeles as a Wacktress (waiter/actress – mostly waiter):
Then became a married, pregnant screenwriter:
Ultimately evolving into an I-need-some-creative-satisfaction blogger and a very bad, yet still bossy AYSO soccer referee for my daughters’ Girls-Under-8 team.
I coined the phrase “The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful” when I was 8-months pregnant with Bridget, standing in line at the meat counter at Bristol Farms in Beverly Hills.
Five butchers (count ‘em … five!) were helping a young, non-pregnant Pussycat Doll select a pound of cackle while I festered swollenly nearby trying to order one freaking carne asada!
Eventually I passed out from hypoglycemia due to LACK OF RED MEAT and when the paramedics came they forgot to collect my 50-lbs.-up limp form off the ground because they were too busy helping the Pussycat Doll carry her boneless, skinless chicken cutlets to her car.
I started my blog because I needed a reinvention and loved the idea of an entrepreneurial business and world dominion.
I’ve been interviewed on The Today Show, CNN, HuffPo Live and NPR.
I’ve been syndicated by “O” The Oprah Magazine, The Huffington Post, Medium, Purple Clover, London’s Daily MailOnline and BlogHer.
I’m also the authoress of three well-reviewed, Kirkus-starred memoirs. Into The Child: 40 Weeks in the Gestational Wilderness, Smash, Crash and Burn: Tales From the Edge of Celebrity and Married Sex: Fact & Fiction. I’m at work on my first novel, Loving Iris.
