Miriam Carey drives erratically in DC and gets gunned down, Omar Gonzalez jumps fence and goes into the White House and lives to tell it

UPDATED 9/23/14

How could a man scale the White House fence and go into the residence with a knife in his pocket? What was the Secret Service doing? Where were the dogs? Miriam Carey was gunned down for driving erratically in DC and Omar Gonzalez managed to enter the residence? What would have happened if six people had jumped the fence and the Obamas were home? Why was the door unlocked? So many questions and not enough answers.

Is a piece of a man better than nothing?

For the past three weeks Iyanla Vanzant has dealt with a man who has 34 children by 17 mothers. In the first episode Vanzant gave each of the mothers that participated a piece of a shirt symbolizing that they each only had a piece of him, and how it was impossible to have a healthy family if you are working with a piece of a man. The women on the show simply wanted to be loved and he played into their need to be loved. As they shared their stories you heard common threads throughout and you could not help but feel sorry for them, but today I thought about how ironic this situation was. These women are looked at as victims but every week we celebrate a ficitonal character who has made herself comfortable eating the scraps off the presidential table. Scandal is the show and Olivia Pope is the heroine. Sure she is decked in designer clothing and she speaks in a well-bread staccato tone, but she is a woman satified with a piece of a man. Perhaps we need some new heroines.

Will Ray Lewis ever simply be remembered for football?

This is how MSN describes Ray Lewis on it’s news ticker, “Analyst & ex-double murder suspect Ray Lewis said of the NFL star & his alleged domestic abuse, ”Some things you can cover up … some things you can’t.” Not Two time Super bowl winner, MVP, future Hall of Famer. No ex-double murder suspect. What’s the intent of the description? You tell me. Lewis was found not guilty of obstruction of justice but that info was buried in the story.

Roger Goodell says he made mistakes, but is that enough?

Roger Goodell came out of hiding today and faced the press, but he was low on specifics. Change is coming but he would not say what change would actually look like. He did the press conference on a Friday afternoon. He needed to speak and he did, but did we learn anything today?

The New View is a Real Snore

the new view
I watched The View on Monday and I was bored to death, but I gave it another chance and my conclusion is the New View is a bore. There is no chemistry between the hsts and you feel like you are guest at a dinner party. You want to leave but you believe it would be rude to leave before the entree, but you know you will not be there for the dessert. It is in a word–Bad. It will be interesting to see if it gets better, but someone will have to tell me because I will not be watching.

Sheryl Underwood shares an explosive secret on The Talk


Today on The Talk Sheryl Underwood revealed a long held secret. She share with the audience how years ago she was on a conference call with two fellow comediennes and they did not know she was on the call. She heard them make disparaging remarks about her appearance, her comedic ability and other things. She never revealed that she was on the call and went on to work with both women. She said she can now tell it because she is where she needs to be. My question is could you do that or would you have to confront the women?
