Giuliana Rancic Apologetic and Frightened Body Language

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 6.01.22 AM

When  Fashion Police co-host Giuiiana Rancic received a lot of backlash from her comment about singer Zendaya’s  dreadlocks, saying the girl looked like she” smelled of weed and patchouli oil,” she got on the air and apologized. The apology was sincere and Giulianna looked scared and upset. Through her  mea culpa, the tone sounded very sincere as she took full responsibility for her statement, her wide eyed  tensed face fear permeated throughout the apology. Being a veteran journalist, she knew very well what her having to apologize meant. She knew that this may be the end of her days at the show and may affect her future on television on general. There was no  PR spin that could be done as Guiliana crossed the line. She only realized it after she received a lot of hate and backlash, especially from the stars she has interviewed in  he past like Whoppie Goldberg  (who called her a bonenhead) and Kerry Washington and countless others .

For someone who had dedicated her life to her career, Giulainna has every reason to be scared and upset. Instead of covering the news she is the news which is a very bad thing for any journalist. Look at what happened to Brian Williams. When he became the news he was off the news.  Also what Rancic said was not forgiven by Zendaya who then issued a statement about racism and the expression of hair. Then many others followed suit.

Kelly Osborn, another co- host on the show knew the implications of Giulanna’s comments and  didn;t want to be associated by Guilian’s verbal stink, So  she immediately said she would quit the show if Giulliana didn’t apologize.

There are some things which can be forgiven and others which cannot be forgiven, especially statements which are perceived to smack of a racial undertone. There is no way that Giullaana can ever  freely get on the red carpet again without someone recalling what she said or without someone having  a bad taste in their mouth about her. That is very significant as many may not want to talk to her on the air and may shun her and  not want to be associated with her her. In essence , her  words may  affect the number of people who would  want to talk to her at any red carpet event. That would affect the quality of any show she hosts.

The whole debacle speaks of something bigger than Giulanna’s comment. It speaks to the issue of having a show who’s main purpose is to cut down what someone wore to  and awards presentation.

Without Joan Rivers, the show clearly doesn’t work anymore. The show was created for Joan.  who was both a fashion maven,  who always dressed  to the hilt and a  brilliant comedian. The success of the show was because she  knew how to combine her  spicy jokes and fashion. So the show made sense. Because of Joan’s age, and the network’s demographics, they added younger people to the mix like  Kelly Osbourne  and Giulianna Rancic and some others. Then when Joan passed, they got Kathy Griffin to take over which made no sense. Kathey, who was not into  fashion was now dressed and styled. The show took on more of a mean spirit. As a result, Giulanna let loose with her comment about smells.It is also ironic that Guiliana who has constantly been the news for her  uncomfortable looking anorexic thin body, which overshadows any fashion, iis making judgements about how others look in their clothing.

My view is that Giullana needs to leave the show and the show and  leave the air for a while . It is clear that it is over since Joan was the show.Giulanna needs to get off the air for a while and reinvent herself, perhaps with a few more pounds added to her frame. Then it will be up to the public to see if she is forgiven by whether they watch any show she hosts as that will  determine if they will forgive her and  welcome her back.

Accused Bill Cosby’s Silence About Rape Often Points To Guilt

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.58.04 AM

Back in the day when there was a scandal among celebrities, the advice was to remain silent until it blew over and was forgotten. Well those old school  days have long gone. With social media and the immediacy of news and information and the ability to dig up one’s past and verify it, this philosophy no longer applies. In fact it can backfire. Bill Cosby’s not speaking out and defending himself  and remaining silent against his rape allegations has clearly backfired on him.

When people are innocent of something, they speak out. In fact they scream out that these allegations are” false”.  When something a serious as a rape allegation is made one has to  speak out against it, especially  if they have not committed such a vulgar act.

Even though our American justice system and various justice systems around the world may not require the accused to speak out for themselves  and defend him or herself, in the back of many jurors minds is still the question, “If they are innocent, then why don’t they testify and speak up for themselves and defend their innocence?”

Most recently, Cosby refused to answer a journalist’s questions on NPR that concerned his alleged rape. Queen Latifia and David Letterman cancelled his show appearances. People wrote horrible things about him on twitter related to his alleged raping.

While Cosby’s raping allegations were recently called out by comedian Hannibal Burris, rumors about Cosby’s unwanted sexual advances and subsequent rape allegations have been talked about in Hollywood for for the past three decades. With his constant visits to the Playboy Mansion, many in the Hollywood saw him as a lecherous cheater on his wife Camille.

Cosby has been a super star for decades  and there is no doubt that he took advantage of his status, like so many stars have done in the past and present. and will most likely do in the future.

No doubt there may have been many aspririing actresses who would think nothing of having sex with Cosby in exchange for his connecting them up with an agent, a movie or tv role, or with others who could further their  careers.  There may be those who  may have put out for him and when he did  not reciprocate with his promises or with their expectations, they may have felt used and abused angry. They may have and felt they were  physically and emotionally raped and discarded and rightfully so.  Then there may have been  others, who like his most vocal accuser who stated Cosby raped her at 19,  inist she was actually violently raped by him. Perhaps these women saw was one of the most Toxic People with a sadistic and monstrous side. The fact that he settled with one of his rape accusers also doesn’t look good for him.

Evidently, Cosby was not the All American, beloved and humorous, Dr. Huxtable he played on TV, complete with a high moral compass who would never think of cheating on his wife or taking advantage of young starlets.

Cosby’s silence speaks volumes to me. Until he breaks his silence and comes clean and either admits his alleged egregious behavior or provides us with a defense or an explanation  his phenomenal career is essentially over . No one wants to watch a rapist or someone they assume is a rapist, so they networks might as well pull the plug on his upcoming show.

Joran Vandersloot’s Body Language in Harsh New Prison

Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 5.54.26 PM

A video was released of psychopathic murderer and most likely serial killer Joran Vandersloot who killed two innocent women, Natalie Holloway in Aruba and Stephanie Flores in Peru, as he entered one of the harshest, coldest,and most remote prisons in the world- Challapalca Prison. This prison located high in the Andes Mountains has been cited for numerous human rights violations throughout the world.  He was sent there as punishment for threatening to kill a guard at his previous prison.

Apparently the warden of his new prison Sergio Haro,  gave Vandersloot a cell phone to record himself and later the phone was confiscated . On the video, Vandersloot speaks in Spanish and says he doesn’t know why he was told to record himself but mentions it was for his security.

No doubt this notorious prison wanted to show the world  that their new inmate was in good physical  shape when he first arrived. Actually Joran ‘s fuller face reflects that he was doing quite well in his previous prison as he put on some pounds, indicating that he was well fed. He has grown a beard and moustache since he was first processed into the prison as you can see below, he was clean shaven. 

Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 5.56.44 PM In the photo above  his fleshy chin shows that he was clearly not deprived of food at his previous facility. As the doctor examines him we see that he has taken one arm out of  a sleeve of his sweatshirt and rests on his abdomen. Most likely his wrist is chained to a waist chain for safety as guards were taking no chances with Vandersloot. . He is not only under the watchful eye of a police officer to his side as you can see in the photo above,

  • Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 5.56.19 PMbut he is surrounded by an entire army of guards who are watching his every move. All of these guards wear a woolen cap as does the doctor who examines him. If these men are all wearing caps in doors, it no doubt indicates that Vandersloot’s new home is very cold.  In fact the temperature in the evenings has been known to get to 20 degrees minus zero.

Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 5.58.32 PMAs Vandersloot is turned facing the wall and  patted down, we see his sagging pants and his underwear showing. In the prison population this is a major signal that the person is open for sex and are available to be penetrated by other prisoners. So Vandersloot is giving a clear message that he is ready to be the receiver in a potential sexual encounter. In his new home at Challapalca Prison, there are no conjugal visits gone are his days of having sex with and  impregnating a woman as he did with his new bride as of  this past July, Leidy Figueroa. Also gone are regular visits he would have had with the  unfortunate child he  spawned as family visits are extremely expensive and the terrain is extremely difficult to traverse for any outsider.

Vandersloot will not only be deprived of  conjugal visits with his wife, access to his new baby,  home cooked meals brought in daily, and fresh new clothing,he will most likely initially suffer from altitude sickness in the the 15,000 foot elevated prison, no regular electricity or running water, overcrowding, poor medical treatment, poor food, and poor sanitation. In fact he is already feeling the misery of being there as he has allegedly gone on a hunger strike. Perhaps this is the first time Vandersloot is really feeling the consequences of his actions. 

Governor Rick Perry’s Angry and Scared Mug Shot Body Language

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 4.38.18 PM

I will preface this blog by stating that I had the opportunity to meet Governor Perry at the Governor’s reception at the Governor’s mansion in Austin when I spoke at the  Texas Woman’s Conference. He and I and my mother Rosalee had a lovely chat and he couldn’t have been more gracious and charming. He was so attentive to and taken with Rosalee (as most people are) which delighted me. 

As many of you know by now from reading my blogs and hearing me speak in the media,  I am not a political person and have no agenda, either personal or political, other than to objectively read a person’s body language. 

Many believe that Governor Perry’s indictment was political while others believe that it was deserved. I reserve any opinion on the matter, other than to say that in his video where he explained his using his authority as a governor to want someone who had an alcohol problem removed from the office, he seemed very forthright and his argument made logical sense to me.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 5.00.17 PM

 It was clear after seeing the video where Perry showed district attorney Rosemary Lehmberg so out of control that she was so abusive to the police officers that she  had to be restrained in a special chair. So his actions were not unreasonable, in light of the fact her blood alcohol level was found to be three times the normal limit which indicated that she had a problem. If a district attorney could drive drunk it was clear that her judgement was impaired and that she may very well have an alcohol problem, which may  further impair her judgement in other situations- like being in charge of millions of dollars.  

Since Governor  Perry no longer trusted  her ability to handle her very responsible position, he used his authority and veto power  as a governor  to threaten to veto funding to her office unless she quit, a threat that he ultimately carried out by vetoing $7.5 million earmarked for the Public Integrity Unit that was intended to fight official corruption. 

The results were that Rosemary Lehmberg didn’t resign and Governor Perry was indicted by a  grand jury. He turned himself in to authorities and had a mug shot taken as you see above. Facial language wise, it shows that even though he is smiling, it is an angry tight lipped smile. His cheeks are not raised and he shows no teeth as he does when making a genuine smile. Below is a genuine smile, so you can see the difference from his mugshot. Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 5.06.37 PM In his mugshot there is a a lot of tension in his forehead, tightness in his lower jaw and around his eyes and cheeks. It is in great contrast to what we see in this photo above. In  the mugshot his head retreats backwards and the visible shininess,  most likely due to perspiration on his forehead and nose. This may reflect fear and high anxiety. Even though he is trying his best to hide that fear with the tight smile , his body says the opposite – that there is the fear factor that he could possibly be facing a 99 year prison sentence.  

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Body Language Real and Refreshing As She is Smitten With Josh

Every time I am asked by the press to do a body language analysis of the Bachelor or the Bachelorette, I often cringe, like I did with last season’s dysfunctional bachelor Juan Pablo. But this season was different with Andi Dorfman. Her body language showed her to be a bright, educated, accomplished attractive, articulate, warm, and sensitive young lady.

She was the most impressive Bachelorette, if not the most impressive reality star seen on television thus far. This is the type of woman we need to be exposed to, not the uneducated, fold mouthed, shallow women like the Kardashian sisters who are only famous because of their promoting mother who is so pathetically desperate to be a star herself and who all shot to fame on the back of Kim’s beyond vulgar sex tape.

Watching how Andi Dorfman handled herself in her quest in finding Mr. Right was very compelling. It was compelling because this was one of the first reality stars who was actually real. She was real with her communication, her words, her affection and with her joy of life.

Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 8.08.23 PM

When the now deceased Eric Hill,the adventurer and her first date called her out on being an actress or phony he was grossly mistaken. This is a man may be rest in peace who was highly competitive as indicated by his chosen lifestyle and lived life on the edge. But his social skills were off. He was awkward. You can even see the awkwardness here in this photo on their first date where he grabs Andi’s behind. She gives him the literal cold shoulder and doesn’t feel comfortable about it. 

While they had an exciting first date with  building sand castles, a helicopter ride, and snowboarding in one day,  it no doubt bothered him to see Andi showing affection and interest in the other men.  That  is why I believe he immaturely lashed out on her. Andi set him straight verbally as he exited and was no longer a contender.

Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 8.13.07 PM

It was shocking that he ended up dying after he left the show. When Andi found out she was devastated and felt horrible about their negative interaction. She was sincere and genuine in her grief and expressed remorse for how she handled the situation when he called her an actress. It took someone with a lot of character to be introspective in terms of how she reacted to Eric when he called her out and that has to be respected.

In her quest for finding love, she trusted her emotions her instincts and her intellect gave those whom she thought would be best suited for her a fair chance. she didn’t play games or manipulate as we had seen in the past,

The Bachelors who were left during the home visits were all good men and good choices as she learned about their lifestyle and if she could fit in.

Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 8.01.44 PM

Even though Chris the farmer was very suited for Andi personality wise, physically and temperament wise, the farm life would never work for Andi. Neither would being just a housewife and not having a career.

Marcus was extremely handsome but had a very troubled family, with the exception of his brother who essentially raised him. He has had mother issues in the past and this may surface in the future. Also they don’t seem to be as connected as she is with Bachelor Josh and Bachelor Nick.

Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 8.03.26 PM

Nick was impressive to Andy because he was a take charge guy. This was very appealing to Andi who is a take charge woman. He was enterprising much to the disdain of the other Bachelors. He was confident which made him very appealing to Andi, a confident woman. This biggest mistake was that he shared too much with the other Bachelors who cast him as the villain. He needed to keep his views to himself, but of he did it wouldn’t have made as good television as it was. In my view there was nothing villainous about Nick. He went for it. He asked and he received. He had more time with Andi and she loved it. They seemed to be on the same plane intellectually, emotionally, and physically. But Andi had reservations when she learned about how others reacted towards him and how they found him arrogant and cocky. The fact that she brought it to his attention and communicated about it was admirable in my view.
It was clear from Andi’s by language that she was not comfortable with his large family and even less comfortable with his lifestyle and polka dancing.
She quickly realized he wasn’t for her and it showed in her voice and face and body language. He was also a little too slick and this would not bode well for Andi in the long run and she needs to be in control. There would be a lot of vying for power in the relationship if they were together as a couple.

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 7.59.14 PM

You could feel the chemistry on the screen when you saw both Andi and Josh’s bright smiles gleaming at one another. They are both smitten with one another. Personality wise Josh is exactly what Andi needs- a low key man who worships her and who is easy on the eye. He definitely respects her and would welcome her take charge attitude.
In my view this is a perfect match. She seems a lot brighter than him and that is a good thing as he seems to know it as well. He looks up to her and follows her lead.
While she and Josh are compatible enough to live happily ever after there are a few problems I saw with his family.

Andi and his mother may have a problem with one another in the long haul.  Andi will want those apron strings cut and his mom will not allow it. Hence there will be a lot of conflict unless the mother relents. The father expects Andi and Josh to come to all of Aaron’s game sas he let Andi know this . Her facial expression showed she was not too happy about it.

Andi did not sign up for being second fiddle to anyone as we saw throughout the episodes. While she may be number one with Josh, she will not be number one in that family and that will be hard for her. Even though Andi is athletic this is a family of jocks who’s lives will now focus around brother Aaron’s football career. They are clearly not interested in Josh’s love life when compared to Aaron’s football career and would be less interested in Andi and Josh’s baby as a priority, unless the child showed some athletic prowess early on.

But as for Andi and Josh I think they will make a great couple only if Josh is willing to man up and cut the umbilical cord from his family.

Andi was impressive, She wants to make this work so much that she gave  up her career as a district attorney to commit to a marriage and start a family. I respect that she has her priorities straight in her mind and knows what she wants and what is right for her.

I do think that Andi would have a great career on television as a host of some legal show like something on HLN. She is articulate, easy on the eye, real, not over the top and compelling to watch.

Putin’s Body Language Shows He Detests Royal Family and Obama While Other World Leaders Show Disdain Towards Him

Image

There is no question that based on  Russian President Vladimir Putin’s body language there is no love for any members of the royal family from the Queen to Prince Charles. In fact, he completely ignores them as evidenced by his facial expression and faraway gaze. There is no question that  he wishes he was elsewhere instead of at the D Day memorial celebration. Int he photo above you can see how he doesn’t even look in the Queen’s direction as Obama tries to help her down the stairs. No doubt he could care less if she made it down the stairs safely or fell down the stairs as he would not be the one to pick her up.Image

Perhaps the person he detests the most is Prince Charles whom he completely ignored as he even turned his back to him as you can see in this photo above. It is understandable since the Prince of Wales’s reportedly compared him with  to Adolf Hitler a week earlier.

Immediately  Putin held a press conference in Saint Petersburg and said that the Princes’  comparison of him to  Adolf Hitler was “unacceptable” and “wrong”  that remarks of this kind are “not what monarchs do”.

He even gave a direct personal message to the prince, he added: “Give my words to Prince Charles. He has been to our country more than once, if he made such a comparison, it is unacceptable and I am sure he understands that as a man of manners.”

Putin added: “I met him personally, as well as other members of the royal family. This is not what monarchs do.”But over the past few years we have seen so much, nothing surprises me any longer.”

Well, Putin’s words were certainly and understandably  reflected in his body language when he was in close proximity to Charles and the Royal Family. There was nothing phony about Putin as his body language revealed his true feeling towards them. He refused to make nice and to be diplomat with the family. He was angry and rightfully so as Charles had no business sticking his nose into political matters. He is merely a figurehead with no power or authority. Putin was right when he said” this is not what monarchs do.”

Image

As everyone  including Obama, clapped when the Queen arrived, Putin refused to clap, let alone acknowledge her. As you can see from his body language  based on his cupped hand in a pre-fist like position, he was angry.

Putin’s disdain was not only directed towards the royals but towards Obama as well. Putin walked well ahead of Obama especially since he was walking with the detested Queen.

Image

They clearly kept their distance publicly  appeared to play cat and mouse with one another sneaking glances at one another.

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 1.19.12 AM

They made it a point to ignore one another as you can see here in the photo below.

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 1.17.46 AM

When they did meet face to face then was considerable tension revealed in both of their body language.Look at Putin’s neck where his major  vein is exposed in tension and anger.Also look at the tension in Putin’s face and jaw and in his eyes as he glares at Obama.


Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 1.18.16 AM

The body language of the other world leaders were not warm and fuzzy towards Putin in light of his invasion of Ukraine. The Ukraine President Poroshenko looked disgusted with Putin as you can see here.

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 2.27.55 AM

German Chancellor Andrea Merkel didn’t look to thrilled with him as she gives him a questioning look.

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 2.26.48 AM

 UK’s David Cameron looks very angry at him as well.

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 2.27.06 AM

The only one who seemed to treat him warmly based on his body language was the French President Francoise Hollande. There was a genuine smile and warm affection between the two.
