OK! GALLERY: REAL HOUSEWIVES LOOK LOVELY AT LAUNCH PARTY

Would Kendra Wilkinson addressing her sex tape controversy on her reality show, Kendra, be the right move?

I can see why as a mother and wife, Kendra would want to stop the distribution of her sex tape. When she addresses the tape on her reality show, she’ll be providing free promotion for its distributor. The lesson in this is that you should never put anything on film that you wouldn’t want people to see. Film lasts forever and youthful indiscretions can come back to haunt you.

Tip: Remember videos are like tattoos, it’s very hard to make them go away.

WHAT WOULD THE COUNTESS DO? STICKY FRIEND SITUATIONS; KEEPING SECRETS

How do you think Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Erin Andrews handled Elisabeth's joke that her peeping tom could have waited to see her on Dancing With the Stars? Was Elisabeth's apology genuine?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s joke about Erin Andrews’ peeping tom watching her on DWTS was tasteless. Just because you can make a joke, doesn’t mean you should. It is important to think before you speak. If you make a faux pas like Erin did, the best solution is to apologize and move on. I think Elisabeth’s apology was genuine and that Erin accepted it with grace. It’s never appropriate to make light of another person’s traumatic experiences.

Tip: If someone commits a faux pas, stay cool and pleasant. Accept apologies gracefully.
