Dr. Lillian Glass Film Director Producer

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 8.56.50 AM

This year has been the most exciting year of my life as I lived out the dream I have had since I have been 16 years of age- to become a filmmaker. Now I am bona fide film director and producer with my first film “Reinventing Rosalee” which I screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

Screen Shot 2018-03-10 at 12.31.22 PM

It is a film that has touched and motivated everyone who has seen it thus far as its message is that it is “never too late to live your dream”- a message that I  myself and now doing as a filmmaker. The film is about a 101-year-old former Holocaust survivor taken prisoner in a Siberian gulag during WW2. She came to America and lived life with her husband of 60 years and two children. After her husband died and three years later her son died in a medical malpractice tragedy she lost the will to live.   But then a miracle happened. At 86 she became an actress, traveled the world in her 90’s, won a senior beauty pageant at 94, was seen by millions in a Super Bowl commercial at 97, wrote a book of all her original sayings at 99 and at 100 rode the sled dogs in Alaska.

Screen Shot 2018-04-17 at 7.54.36 PM

Thus far the film has won 38 awards from around the including, Russia, Germany, India and the UK.  Seven of those awards are for “Best Director” and “Best Female Director”. Getting those seven awards to confirm to me that I am indeed a  film director – something that I will continue to be.

I just signed my film with a distributor and I am very excited about that and to see what all it brings in the new ventures of this exciting film. Since there will be screenings of the film in New York and in LA it will become Oscar-eligible so we shall see what will happen.

This film has struck a nerve with people and I am thrilled that it can make a difference in people’s lives. One person who saw the film had not seen his parents in 10 years. After seeing the film, the made a reservation the next day and flew to see their parents. Another person who saw the film told me that this film was the best medicine for depression. They had been depressed for years and after seeing this film they had a renewed sense of hope in their life. And countless people who have seen the film have shared with me that it is motivating them to live their own dream and that it is never too late.

I am one of those people who is living their dream as well and Rosalee, the star of the film who also happens to be my mother has motivated me to do so. Attending screenings of my film, film festivals, meeting wonderful and exciting people, and walking the Red Carpet which I did in Cannes and will be doing at the Los Angeles Film Awards at the famed Raliegh Studios this month has been a dream come true. Rosalee and I will be going to the Jersey Shore Film Festival next week to screen our film and meet some exciting new people.

My plan is to go all the way with this film to see where it goes. I want to reach as many people as I can int he world thru this film so it can enhance their lives as well. So few times does a film impact you so much that you go out and do something positive in your life

Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 5.46.42 PM.png

I am not resting on my laurels . Now I really know firsthand what that really means literally as I have 38 laurels now for this film.

Now I am busy working on my second film- a documentary that will also impact people’s lives in a positive way as that is the mission statement of my production company Your Total Image Productions.( http://www.yourtotalimageproductions.com _Screen Shot 2018-07-28 at 8.14.06 AM.png

In fact, while I am going to be in New Jersey next week I have several interviews lined up of people whom I am filming to be in the film. So there is no grass growing under my feet as the expression goes.

In additon, I am developing another documentary film along with 6 other feature films which include two romantic comedies, a psychological thriller, a historical drama, an action-adventure film, and an animated feature film.

Melania Trump- Communicate Anger Directly Not Passive Aggressively With Toxic  Message on Jacket

There is nothing more Toxic than being Passive Aggressive and expressing your anger in a sneaky way. That is what Melania Trump did when she wore a $39 Zara jacket with the  words ” I Really Don’t Care, Do You?

Screen Shot 2018-06-21 at 11.04.13 PM.png

There is nothing more Toxic than being Passive Aggressive and expressing your anger in a sneaky way. That is what Melania Trump did when she wore a $39 Zara jacket with the  words ” I Really Don’t Care, Do You?”

Communication wise I am not buying the Spin they are using to try to make it OK for Melania to wear this jacket with this toxic message on it’s back. It is a very passive-aggressive form of communication.

If it was a message to the press, as her spin doctors are saying, then why not wear it to a press conference? If it was against the press, it backfired on her. Instead, she wore it to a detention camp to meet migrant children.  It gives the message that she must really not care about the children, not the press.

Screen Shot 2018-06-22 at 12.06.29 AM.png

Personally, I think it was Melania’s message to the world that she is done- done caring about anyone or anything any more after her son was so verbally eviscerated by one-time actor and Jane Fonda’s bother,  Peter Fonda.  Something clearly must have gone wrong in the Fonda household to have both siblings be so full of hate. Peter Fonda tweeted that her beloved son Baron be ripped from her arms put in a cage with pedophiles. He is suffering no consequence unlike Roseanne Barr did by losing her show and her career. Apparently, Fonda is still having a movie released that he is appearing in from Sony Picture Classics.

Melania is furious and rightfully so. After all, she was the one who pleaded with her husband to reunite the children with their parents. She was the catalyst to make a good thing happen. She didn’t want to see children in cages emotionally distraught and desperate for their parents. She was a hero in all of this.

And then Toxic Peter Fonda unleashes the most vulgar tweet that was so vicious and frightening- so much so that she called in the Secret Service who no doubt paid Fonda a visit. Like a scared rat, he issued a frantic apology which was clearly forced. He also called for anarchy. At the least, he needs to be tried for trying to incite a riot and even treason. And he needs to be put in jail for threatening Melania and what he would do to Baron. And for those of you who claim this is Fonda’s  First Amendment right, I say threats like this have no rights.  And of course, nothing was done to him.

So maybe Melania had enough. That may have been the last straw that broke the camels back so to speak. Attacked so viciously and vulgarly, she may actually be saying to the world” I give up!”  ”  I don’t give a damn”  and finally ” I don’t really care about anything anymore.” ”  I don’t care about these migrant children after my son was eviscerated verbally.”

Screen Shot 2018-06-22 at 12.12.10 AM.png

The verbal attack on Baron may have been the lowest and final blow to her as a reluctant First Lady, to begin with.  So she took this opportunity to lash out in anger in a passive-aggressive way.

Instead of wearing this jacket ( which I love by the way if it didn’t have print on the back and if it was in a bright color like lime green or aqua or a shocking pink) she needed to speak directly to the people.

She needed to hold a presser and remind America and the world that she was working on their behalf to reunite the children and that there is no room for hate and hostility towards her or dragging her son into the equation. She needed to let haters know that there is no need for such vitriol as Peter Fonda did. She needed to call him out for this as well as the rest of the haters.

Whoever is advising her is doing a very poor job and didn’t do her any favors. In fact in the words of The Donald, that person or those alleged advisors need to be “fired. ”

Melania is angry and rightfully so.  But passive-aggressive communication is as  TOXIC as the vulgarities spewed upon her. Melania must speak up and say what is on her mind in a direct and open way,  not sneakily or passive aggressively.

FDNY Psychologist Has Both a Personal and Political Agenda vs Trump as She Calls Him “unfit for office”

First and foremost, unlike NY Fire Department contract psychologist, Suzanne Lachman, I have absolutely NO political or personal agenda against Trump or any politician for that matter. As a body language expert and journalist with a strong background in psychology, I report what I see and hear without bias. So when I saw that psychologist Lachman declared Trump “unfit for office” I saw someone who I believe is not acting professionally or ethically for that matter.

In fact, countless trained professionals both Republicans and Democrats have called for her to lose her license. They feel what she did was not only irresponsible but unethical. As a licensed professional in the field of psychology, she cannot use her profession to discuss anyone she has not treated or make defamatory statements about their ability to serve in office or not. She can report traits she observed, but it is not her professional place to draw any conclusions about how fit one is or is not to be in office. This is going over the line.

Lachman is saying that because she had a contract with the Fire Department  of New York, she felt qualified to make the call about Trump. The logic in this seems extremely flawed. In fact, the FDNY just sent out a notice that they are distancing themselves from Lachman and from her tweets. In fact, Frank Gribbon, a spokesman for FDNY, told the Post Lachmann’s tweets should not be associated with her work for the Department.‘It’s inappropriate to cite her work with FDNY in social posts that express political views,’ he said.

Upon further investigation, it is clear that Lachman’s rant against Trump is both political and personal.  Below is a screenshot of Lachman’s political bias reflected in her Facebook pages. She shows how she is pro Welcoming Refugees and shows how she is a huge fan of Obama as she posts a photo of Obama shaking hands with a janitor, as well as a photo of Trump in an unflattering pose which is clearly photoshopped.

Screen Shot 2018-06-17 at 11.53.10 AM.png

Apparently, she is also a  part of  Rosie O’Donnel’s minion ( Trump’s arch enemy)  which she posted on her FB account. Thus, she may very well be involved in raising money or participating in a documentary where she will state that Trump has dangerous psychological disorders as you see below.

 

Screen Shot 2018-06-17 at 12.06.18 PM.png

And finally, her rant against Trump goes far beyond political, it is very personal with her, as she shows a billboard of Trump with a bird shitting on Trump’s head. That is not professional or even political. It is personal. 

Screen Shot 2018-06-17 at 12.06.32 PM.png

In fact,  Lachmann said that she met Trump back in 1992  (26 years ago)  when she stated that she introduced herself to him at a social event. She says that he said to her” Why would I want to talk to you? I wouldn’t even let you suck my dick.”

First of all, he may or may not have said this.  But let’s say he did say this. I seriously doubt he said it in one sentence at the same time. The first response  “Why would I want to talk to you?” was most likely in response to something said to him first. Then a more severe response  “I wouldn’t even let you suck my dick” was most likely a  severe response to something negative that was definitely said to him first. Trump is a responder, not an initiator. He doesn’t begin it. Instead, he finishes it.

As we ALL know, NOTHING happens in a vacuum. There is always a stimulus and a response to every situation. I seriously doubt that Trump would make those comments unprovoked, based on everything we know about him in terms of what he has demonstrated publicly all these years.

For instance, his infamous “grab em by the pussy comment” was not made in thin air with no stimulus to provoke his admission that he feels that this is what you can do to women when you are a celebrity. Instead, it was stimulated by very immature, macho, showing off, bravado to impress former entertainment reporter Billy Bush. If Billy was silent and had not instigated the conversation, Trump would most likely not have mentioned this at that particular time.  So if you carefully examine the dynamic of the  Billy Bush and Donald Trump pussy grabbing conversation, there was a stimulus-response and action-reaction going on.

Similarly, there was no doubt a  stimulus-response and action-reaction going on in his communication with  Suzanne Lachman.  She makes it a point to  mention that she met him in 1992 “right after his divorce from Ivana.” 

In doing this statement analysis, she doesn’t say “I met him in 1992” or “in the early 90’s”. Instead, she qualifies it with the statement “right after his divorce from Ivanka.” She also says it was a “social event” which leads one to question whether she was making her move towards the newly single available Donald Trump.

Seeing that Lachmann is no shrinking violet and rather aggressive media-wise, it may be that she was equally aggressive in her interaction with Trump and perhaps she let him know she was interested in him on a personal level. Maybe Trump tried to let her down gently to let her know he wasn’t interested or maybe not.

With no intention of looks shaming Lachmann, she is clearly not Trump’s type based on his history of dating perfect body, nose, and teeth fashion models and Playboy Playmates. Perhaps Lachmann didn’t take the hint and kept persisting until he may have been crass and rejected her outright by letting her know that he dates models and Playmates only.

This may have both embarrassed and upset Lachmann, which may have possibly led her to make a disparaging comment to Trump in order to help her assuage her hurt feelings towards his initial rejection of her.   It seems she may have possibly retaliated with a response that would be something like ”  I would never want to go to bed with you” or taking it to the extreme, she may have even said to him  “You probably have a small dick”  or “Fuck you”.

Now we ALL know that when a disparaging comment is made to Trump, he claps back even harder. He doesn’t instigate. Instead, he retaliates and he retaliates not with a hammer but with a submachine gun. He even mentions this in “Art of the Deal” and in all of his books and in public interviews. We have also seen it first hand when Marco Rubio started with him saying that Trump had little hands, to which Trump coined him ” Little Marco”. Most recently when Robert DeNiro publicly at the Tony Awards said ” Fuck Trump”, Trump clapped back calling him “Punchy DeNiro”- as in “punch drunk”. He did the same to Maxine Waters who called for his impeachment, He immediately responded and  called her “Low Intelligence Maxine.” “Dishonest Hillary” came about from Clinton’s personal attacks as did negative monikers for anyone who started with him. 

So based on Trump’s pattern of behavior, it seems highly plausible that Suzanne Lachmann made a negative remark directly to Trump, most likely concerning  something related to his  sexuality in order to make hersef feel better and  to mollify her rejection ( like “I wouldn’t want to sleep with you because you probably have a little dick” or  “Suck it” ” You’re uch a dick” or “Fuck you’  or something to that effect) This, in turn,  may have caused him to retaliate in sexual terms and even more vulgarly by stating to her” I wouldn’t let you suck my dick.”

There had to be a hostile sexual exchange of words between these two as nothing happens in a vacuum. It seems highly plausible that she started with him by saying something nasty or derogatory and he simply finished it in his Trump way.

Screen Shot 2018-06-17 at 11.12.59 AM.png

Now she is using her position Psychologist and using the NYPD Fire Department to add to her credibility to retaliate and have the last word to trash Trump publically. But what she failed to realize is that she trashed herself as “hate consumes the hater.”
This will all backfire on her as s it already has, The FDNY has distanced themselves from her so I doubt they will be renewing any contracts with her. And she will no doubt be under investigation by her licensing board and may very well lose her license to practice psychology. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OJ Body Language and Speech Leak Out Truth- He Loved Paula Barbieri, Loved and Hated Nicole, and HE DID IT!

Screen Shot 2018-03-11 at 9.34.57 PM

In watching OJ’s 2006 interview with his then publisher Judith Reagan of his book “If I Did It”  OJ was telling the truth based on his body language and speech content. He did     it ! There were three main signals of deception. The first one was when he said, Nicole fell. The second was when he said he cut his finger on a glass, and the third was when he said he loved Nicole as he shook his head no.

TRUTH- HE LEAKS OUT CONFESSION HE DID IT

The interview was incredibly revealing because not only did he admit he did it by going from saying “hypothetically” to switching over to “I”,  he showed no signals of deception when speaking of the murders. He was fluid and fluent and his voice was strong and unwavering.  there were no extraneous body language or facial language or vocal tells to indicate he was lying. He spoke with conviction. So he was indeed telling the truth about the murders. he was way too detailed for it to be hypothetical as well. In essence, he told the truth about how he killed Nicole and Ron Goldman.

SIGNALS OF DECEPTION

He lied when he said Nicole fell down. You hear a dismissive tone in his voice after going from such a strong voice with conviction. He also looks away and makes facial grimaces when he says that this is all hypothetical. At times he laughs. This clearly indicates deception- that it was not hypothetical but the truth.

He was also dismissive when he talks about the glass breaking. His eyes shift and his tone of voice changes. No one holds a glass and then it suddenly breaks in your hand. Also, he was way too detailed when telling the story. That is a clear signal of deception.

Then the third signal of deception was when he spoke of Nicole and said he “loved that girl” as he shook his head no. While his words were sweet, his body language betrayed him. He didn’t love her. He hated her and was angry at her and that is why he killed her.

ANGER

He not only expressed anger at Nicole when he yelled at her grave and said “I told you” it was revealing. He told her he would kill her and he did. He is blaming her for his having to kill her- blaming her for her own death. He is angry at her now that Sydney does not have a mother and is angry about the impact not having a mother it will have on Sydney.  He showed no remorse -only anger towards Nicole. He was angry that she had other men over to the house when the kids were there. He was angry that she was hanging out with people whom he didn’t approve. In essence, he hated her for having a mind of her own and for no longer being able to control her as he did when she was 18.

He was also angry at Ron Goldman and revealed disdain in his voice and facial expression at the fact that he was challenged by Ron.  When OJ said you think you could fight me as  Ron stood up to OJ and attempted to use his karate moves on OJ, OJ  dismissed Ron’s action. He was saying Ron was no match for him- a little peon. But truth be told, Ron could have harmed OJ with his karate, but OJ’s knife was no match for Ron’s karate moves. He expressed his extreme anger at Ron Goldman for daring to stand up to OJ. He also was angry at Ron for showing up that night. When Ron explained he was there to return Nicole’s mother’s glasses, OJ dismissed it by saying he didn’t know if it was true or not. OJ’s account of Ron Goldman proves that Goldman did not die in vain. He died a hero defending an abused woman. He, unfortunately, turned out to be collateral damage.

He was also angry that the public thought of him as a murderer. In fact, he made a facial contortion and pursed his lips and quietly said the word murderer- something he knew he was. Then he is angry at the press and says how they are responsible for his negative image and how the  public actually  loves him and asks him for his autograph,

NARCISSISM

It seemed that his most meaningful and proud moment was when he saw people lining up on the freeway during his Bronco chase with signs saying OJ GO- or We LOVE YOU OJ. Throughout the interview, his stating how people love him was a was a common theme. He was more interested in people liking him and people accepting him and how he would look to others, than what happened to Nicole and Ron. Now the world has seen in action, up close and personal, what an extreme malignant narcissist looks and sounds like. There is no emotion when it comes to anyone else but himself.

HIS LOVE FOR PAULA

Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 7.39.08 AM

When OJ spoke of Paul Barbieri, he spoke of her lovingly. He was smitten with her and I know that up close and personal.  You see, before the murders until up until the day of the murders, I was very close friends with Paula. So, when he spoke about her, I knew what he was saying was truthful. This is based on knowing Paula and hearing about OJ from her directly. When he said that it upset Paula that Nicole wanted to be back in the picture and get back with him, that was true. In fact, Paula became well aware that OJ was seeing both her and Nicole and that upset Paula so much that  so she wanted out of the relationship.

I first met Paula when she was dating my former client turned friend- Dolph Lundgren. In fact,  she and Dolph double dated several times- me with me and my  Federal Court Judge boyfriend at the time.   After she and Dolph ended their relationship, Paula then became a model. She and I ended up becoming very good friends, going to social functions, movies,  hanging out at one another’s homes, going shopping together, attending barbecues at her at her house,  attending formal dinner parties at my house. When she started dating OJ, we only hung out whenever  OJ was out of town as otherwise, the two were inseparable.

One day, Paula picked me up outside of my office to go out for lunch in a huge white SUV. I asked her why she bought such a large car. She then told me it wasn’t hers- it was OJ’s and he let her drive it whenever he was out of town. So Paula drove us to lunch in OJ’s infamous white Bronco before it became infamous.

 

Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 7.54.50 AM

 

As Paula and OJ’s relationship became more serious I grew more concerned for her. The reason was that I once had a client who was a male model who used to model with Nicole for a fur company. He shared with me that on their photo shoots the company was always having to hide Nicole’s bruises with makeup because OK beat her and often left marks on her.

I  also personally heard about the cops coming to OJ’s house for beating Nicole, from an actual cop friend who shared the details with me. So knowing about OJ’s other side left me concerned for Paula. That is why I asked her point blank if he very hit her or abused her. She assured me that he did not.

Like OJ said in his interview which was truthful, Nicole began to call  OJ repeatedly and profess her love for OJ even though they weren’t together for 8 or 9  months. That is when OJ told about Nicole showing up to his house with his kids unexpectedly. Being the small town that Hollywood and Beverly Hills and the surrounding areas are,   Nicole got wind of the fact that Paula and OJ were getting very serious and talking marriage.

So Nicole would constantly call OJ, which upset Paula, which she relayed back to me. She could see how  Nicole was trying to manipulate OJ and use the kids to get him back and rekindle their relationship. Paula knew OJ was seeing Nicole when she wasn’t in town and knew he was having a dual relationship with both she and Nicole. So Paula finally decided to break up with him.  But first, she wanted to go to a special Black Tie affair with him which she did two days before the murders,  The next day, she left for  an out of town on a modeling gig. I don’t know whether or not she tried to break up with him in person the night of the black-tie affair or if she did over the phone with him, or if she even broached the subject of breaking up with him at all. That remains a mystery to this day.  I will never know what happened as I never spoke to Paula since the day OJ killed Nicole. When I saw Paula plastered all over the news and standing by her man- OJ it sickened me. I lost all respect for her as I knew that she was trying to cash in on her 15 minutes of fame, which is what she did by getting a three million dollar book deal on a vapid book that said nothing.

OJ’S LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH NICOLE

Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 7.53.55 AM

I do believe that OJ loved Nicole when she was an 18-year-old waitress at the Daisey in Beverly Hills when she looked up to him and did whatever he said. But when she came into her own, he began to hate her and abuse her. He couldn’t stand that he lost control over her. That is when he began hitting her and abusing her.

He hated her seeing other men because that was final proof he had no control over her and it angered him. Her dating younger men angered him as did her associating with new girld friends. He still wanted to control who she saw and with whom she associated and reacted negatively to Faye Resnick, whom he called a whore after she  befriended Nicole.

He showed his anger as he relayed these issues on camera. while OJ was abusive to Nicole, like most abused women Nicole couldn’t let go and quit him and he couldn’t quit her. When she found out about Paula, she wanted him back with an urgency. When OJ found out about the younger men she was dating he became furious. So they both pushed one another’s buttons in the worst way possible until he killed her. So when OJ teared up at the end and said: “he loved that girl” he was correct and truthful as he loved the little 18-year-old girl. But as he said this, he shook his head “n:o which showed his ambivalence as he hated the woman Nicole had become.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trump’s State of the Union Speech Showed Passion and Compassion While Opposition Showed Rudeness

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 6.05.23 PM.pngWhen Donald Trump first arrived to give his State of the Union Address  his body language was confident and he appeared to be highly focused and even a bit somber. His smiles were guarded.

His aim during his presentation was to try to unite the nation and in many ways he succeeded. He used the word “WE” hundreds of times throughout his speech. He was determined in his speech to let the world know that it is not about one side over the other , but that it was all inclusive. He made this point several times during his address.

Whether or not you support or like Trump, objectively speaking , his delivery was highly effective. He hyper articulated key points he wanted to make and spoke at at pace where it was easy to process all that he was saying. in order to  understand  exactly what he was trying to say.

Screen Shot 2018-01-31 at 8.58.33 AM

There was also some vocal defiance where he stuck out his jaw in an aggressive body language move when addressing controversial issues and seemed to address his opponents personally.  He even jutted his lower jaw forward as he made these significant points indicating that there was serious conviction behind what he was saying.

He  not only showed a lot of  passion in his delivery but demonstrated a great deal of compassion and sensitivity, something we have not seen in the past. The story he told about the officer who adapted the baby was done with a great deal of emotion as reflected in his inflection pattern.  He also appeared emotional when discussing Otto Warmbier and made a pledge at the end of his speech to handle North Korea in the American way to honor the student who was unjustly  accused and brutally abused on North Korean soil

The most disturbing aspect of the SOTU address was the rudeness and poor attitudes  by certain Democrats who came in to the room  with a nasty attitude and sour facial  expression  to begin with  and who didn’t even stand or even applaud for issues that were for everyone.

When she spoke about working together and serving the people the nastiest of expressions was on Nancy Pelosi who was a sourpuss throughout the entire speech.

The same was true for Chuck Schumer. It reflected that these individuals seems to be blocked from even considering working together.

This genuine lack of respect for the office of the Presidency  was a turn off to the public . No matter what side you or on Democrat or Republican the genuine display of rudeness will no doubt cost many of these lawmakers  in their own elections as it will not sit well with the public.

Screen Shot 2018-01-31 at 8.56.51 AM.png

When Trump made  a positive and beneficial statement that  Black employment  was up and the entire Black Caucus  sat the stone faced, it did not sit well with many.

The fact that Ruth Bader Ginsberg didn’t show up is a travesty and makes one question her abilities to be on the Supreme Court which is supposed to be non partisan.

Screen Shot 2018-01-31 at 9.24.20 AM.png

The fact that congressman Luis Gutierrz walked out in the middle of the speech showed extreme rudeness and distaste. It was unacceptable

The meanness and hatred of many of  these congressmen and Senators showed during Trump’s speech was not a good role model for the country  and contributed to the divisiveness in the country, While we can agree to disagree this level of toxic vehemence was uncalled for and did turn people off in their own party.

When the speech ended and Trump shook hands he was a bit somber> there was no doubt he felt the hostility in the audience  from  his  opposition. The bottom line is that his opposition didn’t even give him a chance to hear what he had to say. He said many things that would be beneficial to them as well, yet they sat stone faced and non reactive. They didn’t clap for things that all people should clap for like working together.

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 6.01.46 PM.png

Melania was regal in her posture and demeanor. When she entered she was very careful to walk down the stairs very slowly.  When she spoke to some of he guests before the speech she showed warmth towards them. The press  made a big deal about her arriving my herself in a separate motorcade  and speculated that it has something to due with the stripper’s alleged affair with Trump. In my view this was nonsense since all First Ladies arrive first and are their well  before the President arrives.  CNN  reported that she wore white to protest her husband which is more absurd. And this is why CNN is so despised and now regarded as fake news

Black Evening Gowns Made a Statement and Made Everyone Look Great at Golden Globes

While the memo at the Golden Globes celebration as to wear black as a sign of protest  against sexual harassment in  Hollywood, it also showed how wearing black evening wear can make just about everyone look great,  So many awards ceremonies have had hits and misses as far as fashion is concerned, But  at this years Golden Gloves everyone appeared to be a hit.  Here are some examples of how wearing black evening wear can make you look even better,

Screen Shot 2018-01-07 at 6.12.28 PMPenelope Cruise was radiant in the black lace long sleeve off the shoulder dress. This year so many wore longer sleeves which was not often seen in the past.

Screen Shot 2018-01-07 at 6.13.49 PM.png

Allison Janney looked awesome in this black butterfly cutout of a dress witht he white accents for the butterfly;s wings , It also may have made a statement about the rebirth of women in Hollywood in terms of power.

 

Screen Shot 2018-01-07 at 6.14.02 PM.png

Margot Robbie’s dress looked great on the upper part,  but on the bottom it was a bit heavy with the silver beading only at the waist which looked like an upside down heart. Perhaps that dress was selected to made a statement of an upside down heart indicating the sadness of what has been going on in Hollywood.

Mariah Carey never looked better with this mermaid trumpet dress, The neck with the band across it looked like a statement was being made  which meant “No” as in no more sexual harassment , Nariah looked radiant in this black dress which seemed to have it all with see through ruching at body of the dress .

Even though Hallie Berry was one of the few who wore a shorter dress it looked beautiful in black like with thicker lace in strategic parts of the dress. Iy would have been even more beautiful if it was longer. Another thing I notice was that the makeup on so many was no as heavy as we have seen in other awards ceremonies. perhaps that was a statement as well.

Even those who were made up like Nichole Kidman had more natural  looking makeup.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 5.35.25 AM.pngMary K Blide looked outstanding with her black and one sleeved sliver sequin  gown with silver on he side, The other arm arm looked like she was wearing jewelry on her arm but it was the beauty of this dress.  Her lipstick was soft and natural looking that enhanced her beauty. He gown and her look was my favorite of the evening.

The size of the glasses looked very flattering as well. Oprah;s makeup was subtle and brought out her best features while her black dress with boat neck also flattered her curvy figure.

This Golden Globes ceremony was very empowering in terms of what women said and how they presented themselves. It made a huge statement that there would be a big change in Hollywood and that women would no longer stand by and be victims of Hollywood’s sexual harassment.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 5.58.41 AM.pngPerhaps the best statement was made by Barbara Streisand who was the only woman to with best Director. She told the audience that it was in 1984 and that we needed to step it up with more women directors. That made me feel particularly great since i am one of those new women directors with just having completed the rough cut of  my first documentary film .

Toxic YouTube Vlogger Logan Paul body language shows insincerity in apology

Screen Shot 2018-01-06 at 2.01.22 AMLogan Paul is a YouTube  celebrity for his who showed his true vapid character when he went into  Japan’s “suicide forest,”  and discovered a lifeless body hanging from a tree. Apparently a man had committed suicide.  Logan and his crew continued to film this horrible situation, which was bad enough. But what was worse was Logan Paul’s reaction to the tragedy.

He mugged for the camera, had over the top expressions, giggled, laughed and treated this very serious situation as a complete joke. It was appalling to watch. The insensitivity of Paul is what even his loyal fans have reacted negatively towards.

Only becuase of the backlash, he took the film down. he also made a video where he apologized. But his body language showed it was insincere.  It too, was phony in terms of emotion as he repeatedly mentioned that he apologized to his sponsors.

He was NOT sorry at all based on his body language and facial language.  He was sorry that the public reacted so vehemently towards him.

 

He begins  his apology as he pretends to chokes back tears, his speech stilted and stifled.  When he says in his apology video “The reactions you saw in the video were raw and unfiltered,”   that said it all. If that was a raw and unfiltered reaction it showed his inhumanity and obnoxiousness as a human being.

His next statement, “We didn’t know how to react” is also damaging to hin. No one “knows” how to react. But one does know that when there is a tragedy you don’t laugh and make a joke out of it and make light of the loss of someone’s life.  

When he says” from the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry,” there is nothing further from the truth. he is not sorry for what he did. he is sorry that the public turned on him and rejected him for being so insensitive and callous.

Logan looks away from the camera and there’s no emotion in his voice. He says his reactions are raw and unfiltered, but it’s really ‘raw and unfiltered’ of someone who has no class or dignity. Any human being would not make a joke or make fun out of this. He should have shown decency and compassion for a dead human being.”

Logan continues, barely speaks above a whisper as he sayd. “I want to apologize to the internet, I want to apologize to anyone who’s seen the video,” he says. “I want to apologize to anyone who’s been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. But, most importantly, I want to apologize to the victim and his family.  This is obviously something perhaps his handlers or legal team told him to say as it did NOT sound sincere at all. 

Throughout his apology he appologized to his sponsors several times which made it obvious as to why he made the apology in the first place. It was to appease his sponsors so they wouldn’t cut him off financially. It was sickening to watch him pander to them.

 He id not come across sincere. And, that is  what people are reacting to. He has no respect for somebody who’s passed away and it’s such a horrible thing. The body language is not good. He’s insincere. You cannot fool the public. They feel it. He comes across cocky, obnoxious and disrespectful. This is so serious. Someone’s life is over and he’s acting like this is a joke.
 Logan ends his video with this: “The goal of my content is always to entertain. To push the boundaries, to be all-inclusive. In the world I live in, where I share everything I do, the intent is never to be heartless or cruel, or malicious. But his intent is to be heartless because that is who he is as she showed his true colors under the circumstances. Circumstances are what show your  true character. And she showed extremely low character.
He said that ” I don’t expect to be forgiven. I’m just here to apologize. I’m ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed in myself. And I promise to be better. I will be better. Thank you.” The tone in which he said these words were also insincere sounding. He is not ashamed of himself. He is just ashamed and disappointed the public didn’t like what he did.
Through making this statement, Logan is  trying to save face so that his highly popular and successful YouTube channel doesn’t get shut down. This is not a lapse in judgement, it shows his character, the lack of humanity and lack of sensitivity.
When he says he doesn’t expect to be forgiven it’s because he knows his sponsors and investors are about to dump him. There are no feelings in his apology. He looks like a scared deer in the headlights because he knows his career could be over. No matter how you look at it he was making fun of a man who was in such turmoil and had such pain that he ended his life.
Paul was making light of suicide and disrespected the victim found in the forest.  who I think he should be kicked off YouTube entirely as people get kicked off for lesser offenses.
