If team O
hears crunching noises coming from my office, it's probably me scarfing down a bag of my current go-to snack: Epic's sea salt and pepper artisanal pork rinds
($16 for four-pack). The Adam Glassman discovery may not be the healthiest thing to nibble on, but it's so damn good. Just remember the M word: moderation.

"Love is complicated and can be amazing, but finding really good love is hard."
Kelly Clarkson told me this when we caught up in New York City, and her words really resonated. Even though the original American Idol has earned three Grammys and millions of fans, for years she was still missing The One. Fast-forward to today, and she's married and on child number two. Kelly, I'm glad you finally found love. Me? I'm still waiting for cupid to strike!
Lady and the Champs
Lady Gaga has worn a dress made of meat and a coat made of Kermit the Frog. Now, in the era of her most recent album, Joanne,
she's turned to a trademark pink hat. So the question on everybody's mind is, what will Gaga wear when she performs at Super Bowl LI in Houston on February 5? Gaga, if you want to borrow a pair of floral-print clogs, call me.

When I think of puzzles...
I picture a beautiful landscape made of a gazillion pieces spread out on the floor. The Names & Faces puzzle
($35) puts a new spin on that scenario by customizing pieces with photos of family members and their names. It's a smart way to help children remember important people in their lives, like Grandma—which I hope to be one day. Favorite son and daughter, ready when you are.

After a three-year hiatus, Jamie Foxx returned to the big screen in the edge-of-your-seat action thriller Sleepless
(January 13). He plays Vincent Downs, a shady cop whose questionable decisions lead to his teenage son's kidnapping—which is when all hell breaks loose. Throw in Michelle Monaghan as an internal affairs investigator on his trail and Scoot McNairy as a ball-busting (literally) villain, and I think we've got a winner. I just hope it's not another three years before we see Jamie as a leading man again!
