NO, DON'T GET UP Kim, Rubell
In her cooking tome Real Life Entertaining, Jennifer Rubell advocates for unpretentious, rustic, "anything goes" meals. She describes her philosophy as "creative, rule-free, and low-stress," and that meals are served to her eclectic, brownstone-dwelling urban family in a "judgment-free bubble."

Her (or her lawyer's) harsh accusations of drug use and home porn shoots are splashed all over the New York tabloids today, as she and her boyfriend Daniel Kim (each a Harvard grad) fire up a wicked custody battle.
