It’s a mistake all too common among little girls: Falling head over heels for a TV or film star, particularly if his character is adorable and kind. But an important thing to remember is that these fellow are performers, and while they may portray chivalrous, brave, intelligent, and talented figures in the moving pictures, they could be anything but the second they clock out for the day.

Though very accomplished and entertaining, perpetually enraged businessman Donald Trump could use a personality makeover. And by makeover, we mean media blacklist so we don’t have to listen to the ramblings of a pushy bloviator ever again.

I’m one of the pickiest eaters around, so I identified with Kim Kardashian’s discomfort when she tasted Indian food and immediately learned it wasn’t her cup of tea. Calling the cuisine “disgusting” was rather dramatic, but so is having to issue an apology to an entire country merely for not being a fan of its food.

With age comes the ability to suppress tears, but sometimes, your emotions take hold of you and before you know it, you are sobbing in front of the entire office until an intern pulls you into the hall to spare everybody another uncomfortable second.
Crying at work may seem like a character flaw and “demonstrate weakness” (*eye roll*), but you show emotion because you’re human, and getting upset with all office eyes on you really isn’t the end of the world. During a speech at Harvard Business School last week, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg admitted to tearing up on the job, and clearly that hasn’t stopped her from achieving amazing things. Here are some other successful women who have gotten glassy eyed at work and been fine in the long run.
