The Ridiculousness of it All

Today’s post will be short and to the point (I hope). 

First, let’s talk about Khloe’ Kardashian Odom’s “nip slip”.  She knew what she was doing-it was no accident.  She even stated on her blog that her stylist told her to wear a bra before her Fox & Friends appearance, but Khloe’ decided to go commando anyway.  Why?  Because she’s an attention whore.  You all know I love “Keeping up with the Kardashians”, but let’s call a spade a spade.  The whole family is full of nothing but attention seekers.  People seem to be making a big deal out of the fact that Khloe’ admitted she likes nipples.  I’m more surprised at the fact that she showed hers on live television…well, maybe not. 

Why do married men (really anyone) involve themselves in sexting?  And why do public figures send these inappropriate pics to women who are not their wives?   Are they stupid?  Crazy?  Deranged?  Or do they just not give a f*ck???  No matter what we think about Anthony Weiner’s actions, it’s so easy to say what we would if we were in that situation.  In regards to Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin-please leave these people alone and let them live their lives.  If she chooses to stay in her marriage, that’s her decision.  Who are we-strangers-to suggest what she should do?  Yes, we should hold our elected politicians to higher standards, but unfortunately, some have a tendency to disappoint. 

So how many more teachers are going to sleep with students?  What about a child is sexually pleasing?  I don’t understand how these grown women can manipulate these young boys.  It’s really, really sick.  This goes to show that women can be sexual predators and prey on children, too.  And now the latest woman to sleep with a student, Rene Chantel Frank, is bringing children into the world???

Even though he didn’t mention a name, megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar told his congregation from the pulpit on Sunday that a certain preacher, who was a “friend”, had a “wreck” and should be forgiven.  (Check out the story here.)  Ok, let’s be real.  As my Auntie Madeline and I discussed, this man premeditated his actions.  And he’s a hypocrite.  You can’t speak out against homosexuality and BE a homosexual.  Yes, as Creflo Dollar stated, everyone deserves to be forgiven, but what would I look like having a predator, manipulator, and abuser as the head of my spiritual life? 

That’s all the ridiculousness I have today.  I’m sure this won’t be the last time I share some with you guys.  Feel free to share some of your own or your thoughts on the ridiculousness I’ve shared.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.

This Week in the News-A Quick Look

Happy Friday! I trust you all had a great Veterans Day!  I must say I’m excited because one of my favorite veterans is on her way back home after serving 8 months in Afghanistan!  I don’t have a lot of time today, so I’m gonna be quick! (Feel free to read up on these stories and share your thoughts!)

Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe (aka the Kardashian sisters) have launched a pre-paid MasterCard.  The card is targeted to teens and could cost consumers as much as $100/year just to have it! (Read more here.)

In case you missed it, Matt Lauer interviewed former president George W. Bush.  A lot of people think Matt took it easy on Dubya.  The former president did state he didn’t appreciate being called a racist by Kanye West.  And Kanye went in on Matt.  (Can’t we all just get along???)

Have you heard about the tragic and senseless death of Bobby Tillman?

As long as my taxes don’t change, President Obama is alright with me.

Ok, folks, that’s all I have time for today.  Feel free to share your own news or comment on one of the stories I’ve shared with you today!  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
