Nene Leakes is the star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. What she says goes and if you challenge her supremacy you will find yourself watching the show versus being on the show. Nene was tight with Kim and when they broke up Kim was soon history. She fought with Sheree, and then Sheree was a goner. She handpicked Marlo, but when Marlo crossed her she dismissed her, but last night Nene took it to a new level. Cynthia her good and faithful servant became the latest to be a member of the former friend list. Cynthia Bailey has been there for Nene. She has been her ride or die chick even when the viewers questioned Cynthia’s sanity. A couple of week’s ago on the show Nene called Cynthia’s husband Peter a “bitch.” It’s hard to come back from that kind of insult, but Cynthia seemingly accepted Nene’s non-apology apology. Last night during an interview with Andy Cohen, Nene unleashed her wrath on Cynthia, and she also through some shade on former castmate, Sheree. Last night Nene had a platform provided by the network and she suggested that Cynthia should be dismissed from the show. It is hard to break it off with Nene. If you are on the show you do so at your own peril. A few weeks ago my son was home from school and he sat down with us and watched some of the show. He said that Nene was a “beast”, and I have to agree with him. She devours her enemies. Nene has gone from being a fun loving down to earth woman on Season 1 who made us laugh to being a “star”. She has improved her looks, her clothing and her stature, but along the way she shed the persona that made us root for her. The fact is Nene is a star, but last night she proved she is nobody’s friend.
We learned this in 4th grade. Did you learn this in school? This speech still resonates.
This morning I was watching the Today Show. They featured a story about a great little girl basketball player. She was great and she played on an all boys team but the state rules committee would not let her team participate in the tournament because the rules stated that a girl could not play on the boys team. The team decided not to participate if ahe was not allowed to play. The anchors of the Today Show said they hope that the team would challenge the rule and the ultimate goal was to overturn the rule. So why do we have rules? Do we only want to obey rules we agree with? On the evening news I saw a rancher who refuses to pay the tax the IRS has determined he owes on the land that he lets his cows graze on. he has not paid taxes in 20 years and has a tax bill of 1 million dollars. he refuses to pay and people from throughout the country have come out to support him. So he refuses to pay his taxes but we have to pay our taxes. Is he right? What rules do we wish to obey? So what do we do? Eliminate some rules, all rules? Share your thoughts.
Yesterday old news surfaced regarding Al Sharpton. Sharpton was an FBI informant back in the eigthies. He actually wore a wire and taped his conversations with some mob heavyweights. He says that he was dealing with corruption in the music business. Since the eighties Sharpton has turned his life around and now he is a respected member of the media community. He is still reviled by some but is this type of journalism fair? If we are the land of second chances are we willing to accept the Sharpton of today or do we vilify him for his behavior over 30 years ago? Share your thoughts.
A friend of mine told me her granddaughter works at a major retailer. There is an employee who was hired as a male, but now he identifies as a female. He has started using the ladies room and when her granddaughter complained she was told by HR that she was discriminating against the employee. So now she no longer uses the ladies room at the store. Are her rights being ignored? Share your thoughts.

Everybody has a phone with a camera these days, but Samsung has catapulted the selfie into another level. When Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz asked the president to take a selfie with him the president obliged his request, but he did not know he was consenting to a covert ad scheme. On its face it seemed like an innocent request but the rich get richer by using their resources and that sadly is what Ortiz did.
