…We all know that families now aren’t necessarily like Ozzie and Harriet (it turns out Ozzie and Harriet’s family wasn’t all Ozzie and Harriet)… family has a traditional context, but today it’s not as simple as two parents with 2-3 kids… it’s about relationships… it’s about people who are bound together by love and a sense of being responsible for one another… it’s spouses with no children, like Jeffrey and me… it’s a group of women who meet to cook dinner together once a month… it’s a one-parent family with adopted children… it’s two men who’ve made a life together… at the end of the day, all we have is love… getting love, but even more, feeling love…

See the problem is, The Barefoot Contessa was always this to me.

Humphrey Bogart! Ava Gardner! Rossano Brazzi! directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz!

Love and tragedy, his penis was blown off you guys!

So imagine my confusion when I found out that the Barefoot Contessa was this:

I’ve since watched the show more, and I really enjoy her and her food and her friends that are always stopping over. But at first I had this major disconnect.

Sorry Ina!
