PRESIDENT OBAMA ...

You know when you "friend" people on Facebook and everything they post on their wall will appear on your wall?  Well.  Someone who is obviously against Obama and Obamacare, posted a picture on their wall that showed up on my wall that was so horrible and so racist of President Obama I was shocked.  I thought about posting the picture but decided not to because it would be promoting someone's hateful agenda.  It was so degrading I could not believe that anyone would actually post such a picture.

This went WAY beyond Democrats / Republicans / Conservatives / Liberals.  It was hateful.  Whether you like the man or not, he is the President.  And if you're going to pull the race card when commenting on the President speaks volumes about who YOU are.  I would imagine that anyone who could post something like that and/or hold such derogatory opinions of the first black President is probably someone who hates that we no longer live life like those lucky folks who lived during the 1860's when slaves were slaves and whites were whites and everyone knew their place.  A person of conscious would never post a picture like that because a person of conscious has heart, compassion, intellect.  Only a racist could post a picture like that.   

President Obama has disappointed me too.  But I realize that these men in Washington are politicians and they ALL HAVE AN AGENDA and it is not about YOU.  With that said, I have NEVER seen such hatred for a President, ever.  And I believe it is because he is not white.  The congress has fought this President on EVERYTHING.  The Tea Party and the conservative pundits have been very vocal about wanting him to fail.  These folks would bite off their own nose to spite their face.  They want him to fail so badly that they don't care if the entire country suffers because of it ... can you say SHUTDOWN? 

And please do not send me angry comments about Obamacare.  This is not about Obamacare.   You don't have to like the President, that's ok.  You may not be a Democrat, that's ok.  You may disagree with Obamacare, that's ok.  My message is that posting something like what I saw today IS WRONG and could ONLY be posted by a racist, and that to me is sadder than sad.  That there are people in 2013 ... the 21st Century, who still believe that posting derogatory, racist and demeaning pictures of a black man who is also the leader of the free world, is OK.  IT'S NOT.

LETTER FROM ME TO MARIA KANG...

This gal right here … Maria Kang … posted her picture on her Facebook page (because she KNOWS she looks fabulous but more about that later) and got a ton of hate mail for causing "fat shaming."  This was Ms. Maria’s response to the haters.
 
 
I've been getting an influx of new followers, emails and comments (on my profile pic) recently. Some saying I'm a bully, I'm fat-shaming and I need to apologize for the hurt I've caused women. I get it. SO here's my First and Final Apology:
 
I'm sorry you took an image and resonated with it in such a negative way. I won't go into details that I struggled with my genetics, had an eating disorder, work full time owning two business's, have no nanny, am not naturally skinny and do not work as a personal trainer. I won't even mention how I didn't give into cravings for ice cream, french fries or chocolate while pregnant or use my growing belly as an excuse to be inactive.  

 What I WILL say is this. What you interpret is not MY fault. It's Yours. The first step in owning your life, your body and your destiny is to OWN the thoughts that come out of your own head. I didn't create them. You created them. So if you want to continue 'hating' this image, get used to hating many other things for the rest of your life. You can either blame, complain or obtain a new level of thought by challenging the negative words that come out of your own brain.

With that said, obesity and those who struggle with health-related diseases is literally a 'bigger' issue than this photo. Maybe it's time we stop tip-toeing around people's feelings and get to the point. So What's Your Excuse? - Maria Kang

IS THAT RIGHT?   
 
Dear Ms. Kang:
 
I have often found that women like you are usually barfing after every meal while trying to convince the rest of the world that they exercise, eat right and drink lots of water.  Horseshit.  (p.s. you’ve already stated that you had an eating disorder – Bulimia … SEE?  That right there says a lot).  And how do we know that you’re still not Bulimic?  Anorexics and Bulimics are people who are expert at lying about their dirty secret and have an obsession with being perfect.  They tend to have very black and white viewpoints and are very judgmental of others.  There are never any gray areas in life …. except of course, when it pertains to them.  It is a deep self-loathing.  Now there is nothing wrong with wanting to be fit and healthy.  The problem is when you flaunt yourself by posting your picture with the statement “What’s Your Excuse?”  You could have done without that.  It was really snarky and it only pisses people off.  Which I think you know.  But you said it anyway.  Whatever. 
 
I read that you do not watch t.v., get up at 6 am and work out six days a week for a couple of hours and when you’re at the park with your kids you’re working out, not on your iPhone … like all the fat moms.  OK.  THAT’S YOU.  Other mom’s wanna be on their iPhone while they’re at the park and NOT work out … SO WHAT'S IT TO YOU??? 
 
How can a person run two businesses, raise three kids with NO nanny and still maintain such a serious work out regimen?  You are obviously a control freak.  Now to be quite honest, I was one of those lucky gals with a high metabolism and I never, EVER had to watch my weight.  I was a size 5 almost my entire adult life until I got married at 39 and then I turned into a big, fat cow (ok I’m exaggerating a little but suffice it to say I am no longer a size 5).  The main reason for my weight gain was because I was cooking dinner EVERY.  SINGLE.  DAY.  And then I turned 40.  Turning 40 changes everything.  This is something you would not know because you're not 40.  But you will be.  Soon enough.

When I was young and thin I remember how badly I would feel when people would ask me questions like “DAMN … DON’T YOU EVER EAT?!” or “DAMN, YOU’RE SO TINY!”  It wasn’t a compliment.  It was more like an accusation.  I never worried about my weight or owned a scale.  Now that I’m fat, I understand why others were envious of me.  However, I NEVER flaunted my weight.  EVER.  I’m 56 now and I have a right to be fat if I want to be.  Or not be fat.  But I don’t get on a pedestal and tell other people they shouldn’t be fat.  IT’S CALLED EMPATHY MS. KANG. 
 
I once had a friend who lied to everyone about how she maintained her weight.  She had everyone convinced that she worked out/ate right/and drank lots of water.  And she LOVED talking about her body.  All the while she was secretly Anorexic and taking laxatives.  She also had ZERO empathy with regard to ANYONE who was overweight.  She joked/laughed/ridiculed and was basically pretty mean to fat people.  I once told her how I felt and she almost bit my head off by barking “IF I WORK MY ASS OFF TO BE IN SHAPE THEN THEY SHOULD TO!!!!!”  Uh … No they shouldn’t.  People are not fat to personally offend you.  And if we all know how hard it is to lose 10 pounds, can you imagine losing 20 or 30?  I couldn’t stand that about her. 
 
So Ms. Kang, understand one thing.  People don’t hate you because you’re thin and beautiful.  They hate you because you’re full of yourself.  Anyone who posts six hundred thousand pictures of themselves all over the internet seriously needs to get a grip.   
 
Signed,
 
Fat in L.A.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
SMOOCHES!

IN HONOR OF VIGGO'S BIRTHDAY OCTOBER 20 ....

Dear Viggo:

Happy Birthday. 
 
You will note the lack of enthusiasm in my birthday greeting.  Maybe that’s because you are now in love and living with THAT woman over in Madrid.  I know that my infantile obsession with you over the years must have been quite a burden to you considering that it was entirely ONE SIDED.  The least you could have done was continue to visit me in the ether but NO.  You couldn’t even manage that.  We had a good thing going there for a while.  I was happy.  You were happy.  And none of it was real, even though it was … in my mind.  My subconscious mind.  Oh well.  Be that as it may, we did have some moments … especially those ones in the library.  I liked those ones the best.  Oh, and the train that was a cruise ship.  That was a good one too.  Remember?  Your mom and I were roommates?  See.  Even your mother liked me.   
 
So Happy Birthday.  I hope you have a nice one.  I hope you get everything you want.  I will continue to see your movies even though they are SO FAR AND FEW BETWEEN.  What little pieces of you I can find, I will take.  Until there are no more moments left and no more movies made.  I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean that.  I would never imply that you are all washed up.  It's only my broken heart talking.  I hope you continue to make many more movies since they will be the one and only link, the one and only reminder, that we once were one ... so long ago in the ether of time …

THINGS THAT MAKE MY EYES ROLL ...


This is Amy
So I was playing around on Facebook the other day and happened upon the brilliant Amy Ferris (writer/blogger and person extraordinaire) who happened to mention that Suzanne Somers says she and her husband have sex three times a day.  Now Suzanne is all about the sexy and she wants us to be all about the sexy too.  (eyes rolling).  Suzanne Somers takes hormones so she can be sexy, which also means that she still gets a period.  At 66.  ANY MORON WHO STILL WANTS TO GET A PERIOD AT 66 DESERVES TO HAVE SEX THREE TIMES A DAY.  As for me, I don’t.  I prefer to remember when I was young and sexy and DID have sex three times a day.  I couldn’t get enough sex.  But that was then.  Now I’m 56.  I do not want to have sex three times a day.  I really don’t.  And no amount of hormones and Pilates is going to make me want to have sex three times a day.  I think Suzanne just wants the rest of us middle aged broads to feel jealous that she is having sex three times a day when the reality is most women who are 66 do not want to have sex three times a day and think Suzanne Somers is an idiot.
 
So Suzanne if you want to take your hormones and buy tampons every month and have sex three times a day, knock yourself out.  But don’t tell the entire world about it ok.  We really don’t care.  You and your diet books and your sexy advice can go jump off a cliff.  It’s called “LIFE” Suzanne.  You’re young, then you’re old.  DEAL WITH IT.  And one day, you’re actually going to die.  You gotta deal with that too.  That’s why you have to take hormones to be sexy.  Because you’re not supposed to be sexy at 66.  You MORON. 
 
Thoughts?  Anyone?

FINALLY! Bruce and Kris Jenner separate ...


and Bruce finds his balls ... in Kris Jenner's purse.  She might let him have them back if he promises not to continue living without checking in with her first. 
 
Says Kris ... "she will always love him"   and "they're happier this way."  I'd be happy too if I didn't have to deal with a controlling, self-involved, 57 year old adolescent.  And you just know this broad is going to change her name back to Kardashian the first chance she gets she is so desperate to be a Kardashian girl.  So I wonder when we're all going to learn who she's been banging because you KNOW a gal like Kris could never, EVER live without a man to reflect her narcissistic feed.  Can you tell I loathe her? 
 
On the other hand, I really hope poor old Bruce finds himself a really nice WOMAN (meaning, mature and grown up with a touch of with class) to love and respect him and treat him right.  Twenty-two years with a ball buster has got to take its toll.  So Brucie boy, I wish you the best.  Kris ... I hope you get the clap.
 
As for the other Kardashians, we haven't seen much of Kimmie lately?????  Is she still fat?  Or is Kanye influencing her?  We've yet to see baby North's pictures plastered all over the Universe which I find very interesting.  P.S.  She is an adorable baby, but not nearly as adorable as my brand new grandson who is BEAUTIFUL and the softest thing I've ever touched in my life!  I never thought I could love something so much!! 
 
And poor Khloe.  All kinds of problems with her Lammy.  Her divorce announcement will probably be coming shortly. 
 
Next, Kendall and Kylie.  Kris must make them into the "IT GIRLS" tramps of the millennium.  Poor Bruce.  His little girls will soon be little porn stars if their momager has her way.  Hey, why doesn't Kris just make a sex tape and get it over with???  You know she' dying to  ...  The only problem is ... HOW to make a sex tape with herself.
 
 
It'll be very interesting to see how much longer we will be keeping up with the Kartrashians.  My hope -- they'll be OVUH.  Like YESTERDAY.
 
Until next time ... SMOOCHES!
