Michelle Obama Body Language Shows She’s Disgusted By Saudis and Lack of Head Scarf Makes A Loud Statement

Michelle Obama’s body language clearly shows that she is no fan of the Saudis. For one, she refused to wear a head scarf during the visit. This apparently upset Saudi’s and other Muslims throughout the world as was reported in the press. While one could think that she may have made a mistake or breached social protocol because she wasn’t aware of the customs this was clearly not the case.  .

In 2010 when she visited Indonesia, she respectfully donned a head  scarf for her visit. So she clearly knows the rules and the drill in Muslim countries. But this time she decided that she didn’t want to show respect for the Saudi’s as she went bare headed.Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 7.26.39 PMWhile she may consider herself very special  on American soil where she gets a lot of attention,  on Saudi land hardly anyone  shook her hand or even spoke to her.  This clearly disturbed her as you can see from her soured look and her angrily grabbing on to her own wrist with a fist-like handf. This clealrly showed that Michelle was angry.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 7.26.12 PMShe hated being in the  background  in this very patriarchal society and detested  not acknowledged. Here we see her looking at her husband getting all the attention while she is essentially ignored.

Her angry faced expressions continued throughout the visit as she could not hide her contempt.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 7.17.27 PMShe was clearly upset and angry as you can see by the protrusion of her lower jaw and her forcefully bracing herself by pressing her one hand over the other in front of her private area. What this pose says is that she is not only angry but feeling extremely vulnerable in this country where women don’t seem to matter – not even a visiting First Lady from the United States of America.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 7.25.38 PM

Her angry and disgusted looks continued throughout the visit as you can see. On the one hand, as a Western woman who can blame Michelle for her feelings where women are not allowed to drive, have no independence and need the permission of a male relative (husband, grandfather, father,  uncle, brother, or son) to do anything. There is no such thing as women walking alone  on the street at their own free will. Women can only go to women doctors and study in classes where there are only women.Women have little or no value except to marry and have children. If their husband wants to take multiple wives, they have no say. They also cannot initiate a divorce and their husband. However their husband can get rid of them just by uttering that they are divorcing their wife. There is no such thing as alimony and if the husband is Toxic or heartless he can render her homeless and penniless.

But from the view of being First Lady and accompanying her husband on a good will trip to meet and greet and the new King Solomon, many believe Michelle did not act correctly. They believe that she should have donned a head scarf and should not have worn pants but a long dress instead. This visit was not about Michele, It was about trying to make friends with the new leader. Clearly, there was no winning friends or influencing anyone via Michelle’s actions. In fact many took this as a personal insult or slap in the face.

From my view I believe that one must respect the cultures of others when you are on their territory. I myself have even donned a head scarf when I have lectured in certain countries where the head scarf was expected to be worn by women. Even though I was a Westerner I thought it was more respectful if I wore one and it was very well received and much appreciated. It showed that I respected their culture.

Michelle’s body language can be translated  by many as reported in the  press as to her being defiant and arrogant. There was no question that she was angry and disgusted. There was also no question that her presence and actions were not very diplomatic.

Did Officer Darren Wilson’s Vocal Tone and Words Inflame Anger and Actions of Michael Brown Causing His Fatal Shooting?
November 29, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-11-28 at 7.28.00 PM

Before I begin I want to state that I have no agenda here and I am not taking sides. This post has no racial or political undertones. As a body language expert and communication expert, I pose questions which in my view, may give us some insight as to another underlying factor  that has not yet been discussed in the press until this blog post.

We all know that The Grand Jury has spoken after scrutinizing the evidence which lead to Michael Brown being shot and killed by Officer Wilson and Officer Wilson not being charged with murder or manslaughter.

In  reporting my observations about Officer Darren Wilson’s body language and tone of voice and speech content and facial language  during the ABC interview , I found it to be as  disturbing as when I watched Michael Brown’s body language in the surveillance video.

In examining Officer Wilson’s account of the events, he did appear to be telling the truth about what happened as I did not see any outward signals of deception. However, I was particularly struck by Officer Wilson’s  robotic and monotone vocal tone and command  terms  when relaying the exact words he used to Michael Brown. Thus, it  made me question  if Wilson’s tone and words may have possibly been a contributing factor to this disaster.

 

Screen Shot 2014-11-28 at 7.45.42 PM

As we all saw on the video, Michael Brown robbed a store where he took some cigarillos. Brown then bullied and roughed up the store clerk as we can see in the screen shot above, leaving the clerk with a fearful body language. . While I have all the sympathy in the world for Michael Brown’s mother in losing a son, after her public comment that her son  would never do anything wrong, she needs to carefully examine the video with regard to her son’s entitled and bullying behavior. That said, many  teens have robbed and bullied and have not been shot dead.

No doubt when Michael Brown left the store feeling empowered that he was able to intimidate the clerk just by his size and  get away with taking whatever he wanted. Most likely, as Brown walked in the middle of street,  which was reported, he may have continued that feeling of empowerment and entitlement, especially when Officer Wilson approached him.

Reports say that when Officer Wilson saw him and a friend walking in the middle of the street. Wilson said he told Michael Brown to “get out of the middle of the street”.  But the question here is,  how did Officer Wilson tell Michael Brown to get out of the  middle of the street? What tones did he use and what exact words did Officer Wilson say to Brown?

The reason I bring this up is that even though Darren Wilson was doing his job as he repeatedly said, I wonder if perhaps it may have been Wilson’s tone or  the specific words he used that helped spark the fire that ignited an already entitled and empowered Michael Brown’s anger, which in turn escalated to the event that lead to Brown’s being shot to death.

Research has shown that the tone of a person’s voice and the words they use can either inflame or diffuse a situation. This is one of the things I continuously emphasize in my lectures to Police Departments across the country on body language and communication skills. Sometimes a simple “Please” before a command can change an entire attitude for all parties involved. Oftentimes a “please” doesn’t make the request sound like a threat. Perhaps Brown interpreted the command as a hostile threat and reacted as he did. So often things can escalate and get out of hand due to tones and words.

As a side note, throughout the years,  the Beverly Hills Police Department has been very aware of this very factor. One of the things that has been observed by many who have been stopped by a BHPD officer is that they are conscious of being very respectful and polite when they engage a person. In fact a friend of mine who is a retired Beverly Hills officer shared  with me that being respectful and polite was always drummed into all the officers.

In the Ferguson Police situation,  If Brown did attack Officer Wilson, Brown’s judgment was clearly impaired at that moment as any 17 or 18 year old high school student has to know that attacking a police officer will end badly. For Brown to return and attempt to tackle Officer Wilson, there was clearly something which enraged Brown which may very well have been a vocal and verbal stimulus from Wilson.

Also  as a side thought, why did the officer have to shoot Brown in the head as he charged towards him? Couldn’t Wilson have shot Brown in the legs or in the feet so he would fall down. It seems to me that shooting Brown in the head was excessive and  “overkill” to excuse the pun.

The first thing which struck me about Officer Wilson’s demenor on his ABC interview was his lack of facial animation and his tone of voice where there was a lack of vocal inflection and animation. He appeared detached in terms of emotion and robotic in his tones . This may be in keeping of the type of police officer he is – a “by the book” officer. As he described his actions of the night, this was quite evident. But his facial expression showed no sadness or distress when relaying how Brown died.

Since nothing happens in a vacuum and there is always a cause and affect, after listening to Wilson’s tones I wondered what it was that ultimately caused things to escalate to Michael Brown’s death. What caused this young man to react so angrily to Officer Wilson to led him to engage in a physical attack on the officer and the officer subsequently shooting him to death?

Was it the officer’s tone of voice when he first approached Michael? Did he speak in harsh hostile robotic and angry tones when he told him to get out of the middle of the street where Michael was walking with a friend?  Based on his account it is doubtful that Wilson used terms of politeness or respect  like “Can you please not walk out in the middle of the street?”  BAsed on the other harsh command terms he relayed, it is most likely that he  gave  Michael a harsh command? That may have made a huge difference  in what may have set the tone for what unfortunately followed.

Could all of this have been avoided if the officer would have used different words or different tones with this young man? What would have happened if he engaged Michael Brown and was polite and respectful, at least until his backup unit came by?

When Officer Wilson described the incident on ABC News , Wilson did reveal that he used the command terms “Get back or I’ll shoot you.” This resulted in Brown replying “You’re too much of a pu**y to shoot me.” In essence, an angry Brown was testing Wilson and reacting to what he perceived  as a threat.  But what if Wilson said “ Please get back. I don’t want to have to fire at  you? Would that have made a difference or was the dye already cast? Only Brown and Wilson will ever know the answer to this.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.55.26 AM

Another thing which disturbed me the most in the interview was Wilson’s detached vocal coldness, when asked by  ABC interviewer George Stassinopoulos about Wilson’s conscience. When Wilson  said he had a “clear conscience”, it sent off a red flag to me. If someone is shot and killed,  no matter the circumstances, their conscience should not have been  clear in my view.

Many officers have shot in the line of duty, in  fear of their lives,  or to save the lives of others.  For the majority of officers, their conscience is not clear but as a human being it is disturbed for taking a human life. No matter how trained they are, taking a human life does and should have an emotional effect on a person.

Look what has happened to Veterans in so many wars,  who have been trained to kill the enemy. Even though they are doing their job, it still often  affects their conscience, so much so that they get post traumatic stress syndrome, which  has ruined  so many Veteran’s lives. PTSD is an epidemic among Veterans as it has been since World War II where it was referred to as “shell shock.” Vietnam Vets were the first to put a face on this disorder.

Just like Veterans, police officers who have killed someone in the line of duty, can and have easily suffered from PSTD . Oftentimes their consciences are so disturbed that they often undergo extensive psychotherapy to deal with the implications of taking a life . They are  often  counseled right after the incident and many remain in treatment for a long period of time.

In listening to Darren Brown speak, his robotic and detached tones spoke volumes to me . Darren Wilson is not a warm nor engaging  or even a personable type of policeman based on his observed demeanor. I wonder if he had been such a police officer if would Michael Brown still be alive today?

Nori’s Body Language Shows Detachment and Still Looking Miserable Around Kim Kardashian Despite PR Spin
November 19, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 6.13.16 AM

Kim Kardashian no doubt reads her press about her daughter Nori looking miserable around her and never smiling. Kim attributes it to being in front of th papps all the time.So she just did a PR campaign  to show little Nori smiling in her presence.  Kim says that  this is what they look like at home . But her campaign  has backfired on Kim  as you can see by Nori’s body language.

Yes Nori is smiling, but not at Kim. Nori  is looking up. She is detached from Kim.  There is too much space between them.  She does not lean into Kim and has  not done so in the majority of the photos we have seen of mother and daughter. While Nori is smiling, she is smiling  at someone else or something else. She is not smiling at Kim. The child’s hands and fingers rest on Kim  but they are not clasped around Kim with affection.  One of her little hands is cupped which indicated tension and discomfort  around Kim in my view. Nori gets comfort, not from Kim but from pressing her thumb and pointer finger together. That is her point of physical contact.It is not with Kim.

Kim’s smile and laughter is contrived and phony looking. What is telling in the photo that validates that there is a lack of bonding  between Kim and Nori and it is too late to establish any bonding. Kim missed the boat on that one as their  imprinting has already been established.  Kim is looking at Nori and Nori ignores Kim. Nori looks up. She does not look at her mother. True bonding would look very different where both mother and daughter would be looking at one another. Kim’s smile  also does not look genuine.

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.16.10 PMWhen Kim is naked as she was in her latest Nude Buttock and Full Frontal  Shoot her smile looks genuine. As I said in a previous article, Kim looks much happier whens he is nude than she does when she is  around her daughter.

Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 6.13.27 AM

Then Kim posts this photo of the two of them together stating that this is how the look when posing for paps. First of  all this baby knows nothing about posing at this age. Nori’s  body language shows she  can’t stand being around Kim. She pulls away from Kim just as she does in most of her photos we have seen of the two of them. She looks sad and distant from Kim. Her little cupped hand shows tension. Her body is stiff when she is around her mother.

Kim is not fooling anyone by this latest spin to show how well she and Nori are getting along and how happy the child is around her. The  body doesn’t lie- especially the body of a baby.

Honey Boo Boo Body Language Shows She’s The Victim In Mama June Mess As Her Weight Balloons Rapidly
November 14, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 3.47.50 AMMama June Shannon has made some pretty horrendous choices in her life. All of the the men she has chosen to father her four daughters have all been convicted felons. Two of the men who fathered her girls have been convicted child molesters.

Another horrible choice June has made concerns what she puts into her mouth- her food intake. It is unacceptable for a woman in her 30’s to be so grossly overweight that she sports multiple chins and subjects herself to a myriad of severe health issues from diabetes to heart disease.

But the worst choices she has made concern her youngest daughter Alana Thompson aka Honey BooBoo. Her choices of entering the child into  beauty pageants and then feeding the child  that famed “go go juice”  a concoction of caffeine laden, sugared Mountain Dew combined with Red Bull was child abuse in my view. The formula was given to Honey Boo Boo to make her peppy and alive when she was on stage. It could also have given her a heart attack or seizures as no child needs those harsh stimulants in their body. The effects of the “Go Go Juice ” was Alana’s odd behavior, which the public deemed as entertaining and funny. But in reality there was nothing funny about it.

The next choice June made with regard to Honey Boo Boo was to not set boundaries with her and tech her manners. We saw a completely out of control Honey Boo Boo on the Jimmy Fallon show. It was so bad that Honey Boo Boo had to be yelled at by Jimmy for disrespecting her mother. The sassiness that viewers once found entertaining looked very different as Alana was no longer a toddler or a pre schooler. It now appeared obnoxious.

June’s choice of allowing Alana around a convicted man who sexually molested her older daughter was the worst choice she could have ever made. Was she offering Alana up to this predator? Was Alana the bait she used to keep her romance with this sick creature going? Did Alana’s presence make June more appealing? To me it seems like this may be the case.

And finally another poor choice of June’s is to not restrict Honey Boo Boo;s intake of sugared and junk food. As we sa on the show,June allows Honey Boo Boo unlimited access to a convenience store near their home whereby Honey Boo Boo and her sister use the store as their home refrigerator.

In this fiasco with june loosing the show and the money and perks that go along with it, Honey Boo Boo is no doubt feelingt he stress as well. She is clearly eating away her stress with junk food. If June wants to destroy her body it is her prerogative. But she has no right to destroy Alana’s body. There is no reason whatsoever that a child  should have such a big belly as you can see in the photo above that it hangs over her pelvis. Honey Boo Boo is looking like a Mamma June mini me with multiple chins and a distorted face. Besides her unacceptable physical appearance the child is a prime candidate for Diabetes 2 and a myriad of other health issues.

I think that child services and social workers need to intervene and help June learn how to monitor Alana’s eating behavior.  If she doesn’t comply, Alana should not be in that home which is dangerous for her. The best thing that happened to June’s eldest daughter  Anna was to be taken out of June’s custody where she would eat a lot healthier than her obsese sisters.

Since TLC made millions of dollars exploiting this clearly dysfunctional family under the guise of family entertainment, they need to step up to the plate and offer the family a nutritionist and a psychologist to help innocent Alana and to help Mamma June as well. They also need to have family counseling and nutrition counseling for the other girls They owe it to this family. Mama June clearly has the lowest self worth based on her choices of men and based on her physical condition. She is eating away her inner pain.

Now we have come to find out that Mamma June’s first sexual experience was when she was a child at 12 years old. Perhaps this imprinting is why she appears to  now be drawn to child molesters. Perhaps she turned a blind eye when Anna reported that she was being molested was because she was using Anna a bait to keep the molester’s sickness fed and in turn to keep him around.   Now she appears to be offering up Alana to keep the same molester’s sickness fed and  to keep her romance with him alive.

In light of all of this it now makes a lot of psychological  sense as to why June put Alana into a child pageant in the first place- a haven for pedophiles. Did she do this to entice the  then locked up molester for whom she always held a torch?

If so, this is extremely sick.And TLC should  not throw Mamma June out on the street because they are afraid of the backlash of her being with a molester and being boycotted.  Instead, they need to  pay up for using and exploiting this woman’s sickness. They need to help her heal and foot the bill for extensive therapy, education, and health. You cannot use people like that.

Now that we know Mamma June was also a victim of child molestation  by having sex at such a young age, she needs help to deal with her pain so she doesn’t  continue to subject her daughters to it and so that she can protect her daughters. Mamma June has been in denial about the child molester because she most likely doesn’t see anything wrong with it. To her, it is normal behavior and all she has known. This is why she desperately needs therapy and TLC needs to foot the bill.

Since TLC is in the business of making money, they could perhaps offer a rehabbed Mamma June  the incentive of having a show if she agreed to undergo this transformation with therapy and nutritional counseling. Knowing that Mamma June was also an alleged  victim of sexual abuse gives the whole situation a new perspective. June and all of her daughters need counseling and reprogramming and TLC should step up to the plate and do the right thing by this severely dysfunctional family. You can’t allow someone to destroy themselves and just sit back and watch and be entertained. You need to intervene and do something to help them.

Kim Kardashian Body Language Shows She’s Happier Showing Off Her Naked Body Than Being Around Daughter North
November 14, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.15.43 PM

While there has been a lot of talk and opinion  about Kim Kardashian displaying a greased up body showcasing her buttocks, breasts and  private parts, what struck me the most was her extremely happy and genuine smile as she appeared naked.

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.16.21 PMWhen she shows off her ample derriere she is loving it as you can see int he photo above, Her facial  cheeks are raised and for the first time in a very long time we actually see her upturned mouth and her teeth. She is really happy showing off her buttocks.

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.16.10 PM

But when she does a full frontal, showing off her breasts and her female genetaiia she is absolutely thrilled. Her eyes are smiling. her cheeks are raised, her teeth are displayed and her mouth is open.  She clearly shows that she loves wat she is doing.

Whether you agree or disagree with Kim’s exhibitionism you will certainly agree that she appears to be a lot happier naked than she is when she is in the presence of her young daughter North West.

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.27.22 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.26.49 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.30.46 PM

Thes photos above are just a few of the countless examples we see of Kim with either a serious expression, a sour puss, or blank and vacant expression when she is around baby Nori.

Most mothers of such an adorable child would be smiling in the child’s presence, yet we rarely see Kim displaying happiness around her daughter. The majority of the countless photos we have seen of Mother and daughter do not show either of them smiling with one another.

As a result  of Kim’s aloofness around her, little Nori has learned not to smile around Kim as well. She often looks annoyed and upset around Kim. nShe often pulls away from him.  It’s not the papps that make the child so sad looking, it is the lack of warmth and affection Nori may be feeling towards her mother as Kim consistently holds the child at a distance.

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 8.41.57 PMTo me it is sad that Kim appears to get more joy out of displaying her naked  self than when she is around her daughter. Whenever I see a photo of Kim and Nori it pains me to see such unhappiness and such a lack of bonding between them.

Honey Boo Boo Mom’s Body Language Shows Signs of Lying in Her Denial Tape
October 25, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 10.20.40 PM

In my view it seems like June Shannon, Honey Boo Boo’s mom is not being completely honest in her video tape. She is no doubt upset about what has unraveled and her show being cancelled as you can see her puffy eyes above. She looks like she has spent a lot of time crying over this mess she got herself into.

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 10.21.04 PM

The first sign we hear is a lot of ums and uhs as she says that she is going to give a comment. You can also see her  fingers to the right where she fidgets with her hair. This is a signal of anxiety and the start of her deceptive body language.

She starts with Um again and there is excessive blinking which shows anxiety as she says she just got a phone call from TLC  and ther ewill be no more production of the show.

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 10.31.57 PM

She immediately purses her lips which indicates she is upset about what has just happened.  Then she speaks in a staccato rhythm and begins the statement with “You know.” These are two major signals of deception. She goes on to say “The statement of me dating a sex offender is totally untrue”.  Usually when people use absolute qualifiers  like totally you will find that they are often being deceptive in what they are saying. She continues on to say Pumpkin has openly said that I did not date him.  As June makes this statement we see her blinking which may indicate deception. Then she adds

“and also his son”. She doesn’t finish the sentence which also adds to the suspicion that she is not telling the truth. Then we clearly hear a deceptive signal as she says “I would never ever ever put my kids in danger uh,” The never ever ever is her protesting too much which often signifies deception.

She then says” I love my kids. That is the past. I have not seen that person….in ten years and it don’t seem I want to see that person”.  Here she refers to him as that person in an attempt to appear to be distancing herself from him. If she really had nothing to hide she would say who he was by name and not refer to him as “that person”. Then she says “it don’t seemI want to see that person”. This is a very telling statement becuase it makes no sense. If she was being truthful she would have make an emphatic statement such as ” I never want to see this person”  instead of using the words” it don’t seem I want to ..”

She also speaks slowly and laboriously. This is a huge signal of deception on June’s part as this is not her usual way of speaking. She normally speaks very fast. In fact she speaks so fast that TLC often puts a chyron under her face so viewers can read what she just mimbled.

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 10.48.08 PM

You then see her eyebrow raise as she leans in to say “This is a truth video”. The leaning in and raised eyebrow appears to indicate deception.

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 10.50.15 PM

Now we really see a major signal of deception as she gets cotton mouthed, begins her statement with “um”and then swallows hard. She does this right after she says her lie that it is a truth video. People who lie often immediately change the subject. Instead of speaking more about the situation and letting viewers know that she wasn’t dating the molester and what he did and why she would not consider having him near her, all said in  emotional tones, she completely changes the subject and talks about how she and Sugarbear broke up and how they are better off as friends.

She then goes on to say that “things happen for a reason and that you live and learn”. In making that statement, she is letting us know that she has lied and that there is no doubt she was seeing the molester.  In essence her datingt he molester was the reason TLC pulled the plug.

She then outs TLC by telling everyone that they told her to be “hush hush” so that you won’t be hearing from hr for a while. When she says this you can hear her normal fast paced speech pattern, indicating that she is being honest here. No doubt TLC told her to make this tape and then to shut up. When you listen to this rapid rate speech pattern you can hear that it is in sharp contrast to her denial statement which is slow and deliberate.

Finally she goes on to praise and thank all of her supporters who stood up for her . She sniffles as she says this which may indicate that she is feeling emotional about her fan base and is no doubt sad she will be leaving the show. This sounded very sincere and heartfelt.

Now we have come to find out that her eldest daughter Anna (Chickadee) was molested by this man and that June had lied to her daughter and betrayed her. Anna who is newly married and has a child, Caitlin, has stated that she will not be speaking with her mother and will not allow June to see her grandbaby Caitlin.

Now we know why Anna didn’t live with June and the  three other daughters, but was living with her grandmother.June has lost it all- the millions of dollars from the show and endorsements , her relationship with Anna, her never being able to see baby Caitlin and her fan base.  Dating the man who once  molested your daughter and went to prison for his reprehensible  behavior is unforgivable and many fans could never forgive June for doing this and for allowing her children near such a man.

. TLC is in the business to make money and that is the bottom line. If they pulled the show and were willing to lose money on their investment, then you can be sure they had evidence that June was indeed dating the molester. Since that would not make for a good story line, they didn’t want to risk the hate they would receive and boycotts of their network and their other shows, so they got rid of June and the show.

Joran Vandersloot’s Body Language in Harsh New Prison
September 3, 2014

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.

There is nothing more TOXIC then someone being the instigator and then trying to make out like they are the victim. That is what happened with the passive aggressive actions of CNN anchor Fredericka Whitfield. Whitfield was the one who instigated the hostile tone of the interview by calling Joan mean when Joan appears on Fashion Police, calling Joan out on making fun of serious situations like Casey Anthony’s dead daughter and critiquing Joan’s book cover of her new book Diary of a Mad Woman where Joan is wearing fur.

Whitfield laughs a phony laugh and mugs for the camera when Joan walks off the set, acting surprised that Joan left yet mugging and phony smiling all the way. Initially Joan tried to explain that Fashion Police was not mean and that Joan didn’t attack the celebrities, she attacked the clothing and fashion.

Whitfield glossed over River’s answer and proceeded in a hostile tone to attack her over the Casey Anthony daughter humor. Joan once again tried to explain that you can take a horrible situation and add humor (albeit dark humor) it gives the person a moments respite from the tragedy. Rivers further went on to describe how Winston Churchill described this type of humor as a moment’s vacation. Once again Whitfield glossed over her answer and began to attack Joan over wearing fur on her book cover. Joan tried to explain and immediately went on the offensive asking Whitfield if she wore leather and told her to shut up and talk to her when she wears a paper belt.

Then Joan pulled out her earpiece and walked out. On one breath Whitfield was complimentary and on the other breath began her series of attacks. This is called passive aggressive behavior and highly toxic in my book. Rivers told Whitfield that all her questions had been “negative,” and added “You are not the one to interview a person who does humor, sorry,” before Rivers walked off. Rivers was right. She came to speak of her book, not the show and not her furs. It was the attacking staccatto and hostile tone of voice Whitfield used that got Joan worked up.

Had Whitfield said ” What would you say to people who comment on you wearing fur” instead of directly attacking Joan that she was wearing fur on the cover of her book, it would have been a different story. Had she worded her questions differently, Rivers would not have walked off the set. So needless to say I believe Joan was absolutely right not to subject herself to this amature, unprofessional, and hostile interview.

While the incident was unfortunate it put Joan high up in the press and now makes more people aware of her new book. It also put Fredericka Whitfield on the map as before this, most people had no idea who she was.

On the show Joan Rivers was defending herself in saying that she has made people laugh for 50 years.Before all of the current political correctness which permeates our society her humor obviously worked very well. She skewered the Royal family and Elizabeth Taylor as well as racial and ethnic groups without a thought. People loved this and her Vegas shows and nightclub acts around the country sold out regularly. It was the Don Rickles put people down type of humor that people seemed to love.

But today it has changed. People are much more tender and sensitive and don’t find any humor in tragedy such as Caylee Anthony’s death (me included). They will also not tolerate Holocaust jokes as Joan has made in the past or Black jokes. They will also not tolerate gay or gender identity jokes like the recent one she made about The President and First Lady.

When a reporter  recently questioned Rivers if she thought there would be a gay President in the White House she remarked that we already have one- Obama and that his wife Michelle is a tranny.

In my view it is not Joan’s walking off the CNN set that may be her undoing but this joke about the President and First Lady that in my view that hits well below the belt. It’s not funny and in my view oversteps all boundaries. Whether or not you are a fan of Obama and his wife, we can all agree that this was a pretty shocking thing to say, especially that Michelle is a “tranny.” While there has been tabloid press in the past  alluding to Obama’s being gay, there is nothing to even suggest that Michelle is transgender. It seem libelous to me.

While shock value has been what has sustained Rivers throughout the years, this shock value may be what finally does her in.

Mady & Cara Gosselin’s Body Language Say They Don’t Want To Be On TV While Mady’s Disturbing Comments Show Low Esteem & Depression
June 20, 2014

We all know that since the beginning of  Jon and Kate Plus 8 there has always been conflict between Kate and Mady with Mady’s tantrums, crying, moodiness, and mean behavior. But there was also the sweet and sensitive side of Mady who rushed to her father’s side to comfort him when Kate bullied him in the travel store episode.

But after watching this new  Kate Plus 8 Special Maddy’s behavior troubled me the most. It was as though she was deliberately trying to sabotage the show by not making sense when she spoke or over acting when producers may have told her to “act out” and get upset or act bratty.  But when  Maddy spoke about how she spends all day in her bed,  if it is true, Kate may want to put having Maddy being seen by a therapist as a priority as that may be a sign of depression in the young teen.

In one scene Kate speaks to the all kids and tells them she has “fun things planned”. Maddy immediately interrupts and  out “No fun things” and is sent  sent away by Kate becuase of  her rudeness. As Maddy  leaves she says “I didn’t do anything You never trust me”.

This made no sense whatsoever. What does trust have to do with her mouthing off like that?

Then a firm  Kate tells her Maddy needs to apologize and Mady quickly says she’s sorry. It looked very contrived to me much like bad acting on Mady’s part. The I’m sorry was said way too quickly as she stomped back to join the group of her siblings.

As we continue with this blog you will see an interesting pattern emerge with Maddy where a. what she says  makes no sense as it did here and b) that Maddy is so over the top which makes it look like she is a very bad actress.

When Mady makes no sense it seems like she is trying to  sabotage the show. When she acts out it seems phony and contrived and over the top as though producers told her what to do in the scene and being an untrained and essentially, bad actress she went over the top.

Then Mady mouths off to  to Kate “This is stupid: I don’t want to be a partof this,” Mady said of the party, adding, “This isn’t my birthday, so I don’t care.”

If Mady was not egged on to say this by producers and she said it on her own, the teen is really showing signs of selfishness and hostility towards her younger brothers and sisters.  From that standpoint alone a visit to the therapist might be in her best interest.

But there is one thing that Mady said that is  serious cause for alarm in my view  and made me cringe. It was hen producers asked the twins of the younger kids looked up to them. Once again if Mady is not making this up then this is highly disturbing.

During a confessional with Kate, Cara (who plays with her sleeves and seems to hate being a part of the show as he body language shows she looks miserable), and Mady, Mady is asked if she thinks her younger siblings look up to her at all. Mady says:

“No. They better not. I mean, I’m an awful role model ugh.” The fact that she says she is an awful role model shows how she feels about herself- not great.

Kate is shocked and embarrassed and in order to save face and try to make it like she is a compassionate mother says :

“Mady, why are you so hard on yourself. She’s a wonderful big sister … [The sextuplets] look up to them.”

Then Kate says that she doesn’t condone when Mady is mean to the younger ones. Kate’s statement validates how Mady obviously has issues with her younger siblings. In my view that needs to be looked at professionally along with Mady’s letting it out that she has low self esteem.

Then Mady retorts  back:

“They have such bad hair. I can’t. They dress themselves and they shouldn’t.

What??????This made no sense. Once again it leads me to believe that Mady may be in some way trying to sabotage their chances of having a regular show. It is a silly statement.

Now here is the serious part, if it is true. Mady says that she spends all day in bed. ”

if so Kate needs to stop worrying about getting a TV show and get her daughter some help. From watching the two teens, they clearly don’t want any part of the show. Cara is more passive and Mady is more aggressive about it. But their messages were reflected verbally, vocally, facially, and body language wise- loud and clear.
