Not Being Political Keeps Dr. Lillian Glass Objective When It Comes to Body Language Analysis of Politicians

screen-shot-2017-02-10-at-9-46-52-am

After doing body language analyses on political candidates for the past three decades, there was nothing more horrible for me as a professional in the area of human behavior with a specialization in body language and communication,  than to do these  analyses during this particular election season. It was  one of the absolute worst experiences I have ever encountered professionally.

The level of venomous bile and vulgar hate, ruined relationships, and even false accusations about me being biased  and “political” and pro this candidate or that candidate was astounding. There was no convincing anyone as they were on a hate tirade and only saw red. 

I’M NO FAN OF POLITICS-ACADEMIC POLITICS  OR ANY OTHER KIND

For those of you who know me well, you know that I absolutely detest politics of any kind.  I first encountered politics when I was a Master’s student at the University of Michigan. I observed how poorly certain professors treated certain students simply because they had an  academic advisor, (who through no fault of their own) who happened to be on the wrong side of the academic political fence  and was not in synch  the rest of the department. Those students were treated more harshly by other professors in order to get back at their disliked academic colleague and fellow professor.

At the U of Minnesota during my PhD,  I experienced it personally.  I saw the pettiness, ugliness, stupidness,  self importance and self aggrandizement  of so called intellectuals and academicians,  that it made me push myself to the limit and hurry up and get out of there and get away from these Toxic People as quickly as possible. As a result, I  finished my PhD in record time and at age  24 I had my doctoral degree.  

I also saw politics rear it’s ugly head as a post-doctoral student, where not only academic politics was rampant but now it was combined with hospital politics, thus making things more severe and brutal. Thankfully, I wasn’t involved in any of these meles. But I witnessed many who were involved and who suffered emotionally and academically in terms of their rankings and promotions. 

Then when I was a  young  very popular professor with my students,  I really saw politics up close and personal when students lined up to take my classes and to put it simply, other professors felt (for lack of a better word)a bit  jealous. I gave all my students high grades .  Apparently,  this a “no no” in academic politics, as you have to give some lower grades to balance out some type of curve,  which I refused to do. I hated all the rules and regulations. So I left academia  for good and went into my own  private practice, where I flourished.

Historically, since so many academicians know how to play politics, it is no surprise that many take their political prowess and knowledge of how to  play the game,  to a higher level and  run for office like Elizabeth Warren and Ben Carson among so many others , presently in the Senate and in the House of Representatives. 

There were NO politics in my own practice. I was in charge with no quotas and not silly rules and regulations. I LOVED ALL of my clients and patients and treated everyone with the same respect and professionalism and warmth, regardless if they  couldn’t afford my fee and were unable to pay.  I was treating these clients for free or whether they were superstars who could  easily pay the full fee . I treated those with craniofacial deformities and genetic disorders (my speciality) exactly as I treated celebrities,  world leaders, or major sports figures. 

                                   EXPERIENCE WITH POLITICS IN THE MEDIA 

As I became successful in my practice and was able to sustain a living from it, I branched out into another love I had since jr. high school- that of journalism. While I was a professor at USC, I was able to take classes for free. So I took journalism classes at the prestigious USC School of Journalism ( where I  was also gave lectures to journalism students). I learned so much there and absolutely loved it. My aim was to now combine my  vast academic, medical, psychology, human behavior ( body language and communication)  knowledge with journalism and become ( if you will a media doctor) just like I am now.  

But getting there wasn’t easy as I quickly learned. One of my professors at USC thought I had what he called “it.”He said I had the physical look, a vibrant personality, and lots of energy and would be great on camera. So he graciously called upon a television agent friend of his  who worked at the William Morris Agency to meet me.

The agent, Sid Graw, who also represented the great television host,  Tom Snyder, agreed with my professor and took me on as a client. As my agent, he quickly set up a meeting for me with an established Hollywood producer, Dave Bell, who was doing something revolutionary at the time- starting a television show on cable TV.  Dave Bell met me and thought I  that with my eclectic  background, I was a perfect fit to be the host of the show. He said not to worry as he would pair me with an experienced co-host. Together the male co-host ( Keith Berwick)  and I  met the sponsor ( Bristol Meyers) and the head of USA Network (Kay Koplovitz )where the show “Alive and Well” would be aired .  All in charge were well aware of the fact that I had no on camera experience per se, but they willing to gave me my first break on TV.  

 TOXIC POLITICAL CO-HOST  FROM HELL-KEITH BERWICK

Screen Shot 2017-02-07 at 10.55.08 PM.png

While Dave Bell and the production crew were great, the opposite could be said about my  co-host Keith Berwick  ( now at the Aspen Institute),  56 years old at the time,  a lantern- jawed , deep voiced, television veteran who had at one time hosted his own show on PBS.

First, he objected to my being called “Dr. Glass”  and refused to acknowledge it on air. The reason I was hired in the first place was because  of my unique  academic and professional experience  and the fact that I had Dr. in front of my name, which the producers and  the network would thought would give the show even more credibility. But Keith Berwick decided he was having none of it.

Whenever we had to do our “stand ups” together on camera, Keith made me take off my heels as he said he didn’t want me to look taller than him when I stood next to him. So there I stood, barefoot next to Keith Berwick as we introduced the show and various segments.

To make matters worse, as I was doing my interviews with guests on the show, he would stand to the side and give me dirty looks and shake his head in disgust. Needless to say, this didn’t make me feel comfortable. Instead of offering me suggestions as to how I could improve myself,  he would degrade me and tell me how awful I was. (In looking back over the tapes I really wasn’t that bad at all).

It was just that Keith Berwick as trying to make me feel bad. For some reason, this grown man felt intimidated by me- a twenty something year old at the time.  It was to the point that whenever we had lunch with the crew, he refused to sit near me. One day, I got a phone call from one of the executives of the show who told me I was no longer needed on the show. 

My agent, Sid Graw told me that Keith, who brought his PBS credibility and years of on- camera  experience to the table, said he would walk  if I had to be his co-host, he said that instead of me,  he wanted a bevy of beautiful women as co-hosts to surround him, while he would be the central figure of the show ( a la Charlie’s Angels). That was political as it could get. 

While Keith Berwick had initially  quashed my young dreams to be a media doctor, he wasn’t successful at doing so as soon I got another gig- an even better one at KABC television, the local ABC affiliate,  where I was not only a reporter, but I  had my my own psychology and self esteem segment for 5 years.

I learned so much and was mentored by the late and great television icon, Jerry Dunphy            ( whom the Ted Baxter character on the old Mary Tyler Moore Show was based on). Thankfully, Jerry was the complete  opposite of Keith Berwick.  Jerry took me under his wing and let me watch all of his interviews. When we were on set, he taught be pacing and how to speak  rhythmically and to use the teleprompter effectively, how to punch up key words when on the air.   I was there for 5  years until Cap Cites bought ABC. I loved it  there.  We were like a family- The Eyewitness News Family and everyone got along so well. Jim Moret ( Senior Reporter on Inside Edition) Larry Carroll , producer, Sue Vorgan,  so many others . There was no politics and no power trips as we all  adored one another and it showed on air. That is why were the number one station for so long.

My Toxic experience with Keith Berwick, who used his political power  at the time with the show’s executives to get his way,  made me well aware of the politics that exists in media. Thankfully I have not encountered much of it since that horrible experience with Keith Berwick. 

While I was a regular on the  Nancy Grace Show, I once again saw media  politics rear it’s ugly head with a  small- minded producer in my view,( who finally got his karmic justice and is longer in the media) Dean Sicoli. He would consistently  ban people from the show if they did other shows among other things.

GETTING THE INSIDE SCOOP FROM SENATOR FRED THOMPSON  ABOUT WHAT REAL POLITICS WAS LIKE 

Screen Shot 2017-02-07 at 10.57.02 PM.pngWhat made me detest politics even more was all that I learned about it when I was dating former and late Senator Fred Thompson. I had an earful of what really goes on as he shared with me the pettiness and ugliness of what really goes on with politicians behind the scenes. He always used to say to me  that he  agreed with former President Harry Truman who said “if you want a friend in Washington- get a dog.”

I met Fred years before he became a Senator on an airplane as we were seated next to one another. I was headed to be a judge in the Miss USA Pageant while he was headed to do some legal assignment after appearing in some television show in Los Angeles. We became fast and friends and remained dear friends for years, until we were both single at the same time and then began to date one another when he was a Senator in Washington.  

 Fred went into  politics for all the right reasons. He really  wanted to contribute something valuable to his country. And truth be told,  being born under the sign of  Leo, he also loved all the attention. When we would be in DC or in Nashville and people would call him Senator Thompson,he admitted that he got a kick out of it.

But that soon wore off as the reality of being a Senator and all that it entailed wasn’t as appealing as it looked on the outside.Now that he was on the inside, Fred was not a very happy camper so to speak. As time progressed, I could  also see a  change in him. He was no longer his  happy and jovial self. Instead, politics got to him and eventually took a serious toll on his health. He dropped out of politics and went back into acting and being a spokesperson.Then he died at 72. I am convinced that politics contributed to his ill health and shortened his life, with all the stress, backbiting and hostility. 

MY BEING WRONGLY ACCUSED OF BEING POLITICAL DURING OBAMA CAMPAIGN 

Screen Shot 2017-02-10 at 10.54.46 AM.png When President Obama ran for office, I made some body language and communication comments as I had done with candidates throughout  the previous decades. While most  people saw my point of view, there were two females , whom I went to high school with but with whom I never associated with in high school,  who really let me have it.  Apparently they were staunch Obama supporters and took offense at what I said.

There was no reasoning with them. There was no convincing them that my blog was NOT  about politics but rather about body language and during the first debate Obama didn’t do very well as he openly admitted. I merely analyzed what went on between he and Romney during the debate.

The former high school  girls became uglier and uglier and more and more hostile towards me. Their ugliness was so blatant, that my loyal  Facebook fan base defended me against these two terrors.   But,they too,   found that they  couldn’t  reason with these ignorant women.  So I blocked these two as I had no room for such hate.

When I  learned years later, that one of the women who was  trying to organize a high school reunion had  purposely left my photo out as a  “Senior of Distinction” in her  promotion of the reunion event,  I clearly  saw the root of her toxicity as it was her obvious jealousy that reared it’s  ugly head.  

FACEBOOK HATE AND NO WIN DURING TRUMP AND CLINTON  ANALYSIS

screen-shot-2016-10-19-at-6-05-54-pm

In the Trump/ Clinton this election, I was regularly accused of  being -political and biased during this election  by people who had no clue about me or my beliefs or thoughts, or why I detest politics as I have described above. Their  accusations could not have been further from the truth. It was very frustrating because no matter how many times I explained myself, there were always the ignorant who would insist I was biased and  supported one candidate over  the other.

 I simply reported what I saw and heard during the campaign trail and debates. When I said something positive about Hillary, Trump supporters let me have it and when I said something positive about Trump, Hillary supporters let me have it. There was no winning here.

I didn’t care about anything other than   how they came across, yet people tried to pin their politics on me .  I was having none of it! So I fought back defending my observations. And I have to tell you that fighting with so many people on a daily basis was beyond exhausting and depressing.  

One man whom I  adored and had known along with his super famous television icon wife whom I also adored, really laid into me one night on Facebook. Apparently, he was an avid Hillary  supporter. It was a back and forth of his hate for Trump and my defending myself that I could care less about anything other than the candidate’s speaking skills and body language. He finally got the message  and came to his senses as he  realized what I was talking about all along that had nothing to do with politics. So he apologized to me.

Even so, it left me battle scarred. It’s like someone stepping on your bare toes when they are wearing six inch heels. Even though they say they are sorry and say” excuse me”, the pain of their heel on your naked toe  does not go away so quickly. It’s the same thing with emotional pain. 

DROPPING FACEBOOK FRIENDS AND BEING DROPPED 

screen-shot-2017-02-10-at-10-58-44-am

Then there were some really great Facebook friends who I really liked who were so warm and wonderful and supportive. I liked them them so much. Unfortunately for both of us, they  wrongly assumed  I supported one candidate over the other and dropped me as a friend . I still miss them. 

I didn’t drop anyone because of  who they supported. However,  I must admit that I am seeing a lot of death related posts towards Trump on one FB friend’s posts that makes me want to drop her now. While I don’t care which candidate you support  or hate ,  death fantasies and killing posts are NOT acceptable. So I will most likely drop her if she continues with her rhetoric. 

I did drop Lisa Bloom, not because she supported Hillary but because of  her political and press manipulation where she and her mother Gloria Allred  paraded so many women accusers of Trump  who were obviously having a hard time with the truth based on my observations and estimations.

I couldn’t stand this no matter who the candidate was .  When I saw her hold a presser for a woman who was clearly deceptive and  admitted she lied when she falsely accused Trump of child rape and didn’t show up at the presser I felt Lisa Bloom’s credibility was over forever as far as I was concerned. 

KNOWING AND LIKING BOTH CANDIDATES 

I actually knew both candidates and liked BOTH of them. They were always  respectful  and gracious and  warm towards me whenever we met. So I had no “dog in this fight” so to speak. I even met Bill Clinton. He had such a special knack for making one feel as though they were the only one in the room as I experienced.

POLTICS – ACTORS and PERFORMERS

While anyone can use their public fan base to express themselves, I don’t think actors and singers have it in their best interest to do so. Their aim is to entertain and to get as many eyeballs as possible on them in order to do this.  It is a business they are in – a show business and if they alienate 1//2 their fan base they are not doing doing good” show” business. 

While many don’t care at this point like Robert Deniro and Meryl Streep who spoke at an awards ceremony about Trump and Barbara Streisand who kept interjecting Trump hate at her  $750 a person concert I attended in Los Angeles, it may  be their box office and the companies that employ them who may suffer in the long term. 

CROSSING THE LINE- MADONNA AND SARA SILVERMAN

There is no question that Madonna, Ashley Judd and Sara Silverman have crossed the  line by speaking violence and hate and anarchy. It is UNACCEPTABLE and I believe they should be held accountable for what they said. Whomever speaks of blowing up the White House and having a military coup needs to be investigated and  punished in my view.

They have a lot of influence including influence over people who may not be that mentally balanced. Look at Charles Manson He didn’t actually kill anyone with his bare hands. But he  was the mastermind and the  influencer and it cost him a life behind bars.

And now for the Pope.  Pope Francis has a tremendous influence and he MUST keep his nose OUT of AMERICAN POLITICS ! He needs to focus on the horrible pedophiles who rape little innocent  children and continue to do so as we have recently discovered. He needs to take care of ALL of the issues in the Catholic church before he even utters a peep about American politics.

MY ANALYSIS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

screen-shot-2017-02-10-at-10-43-50-am

As I have continued to do in the media, I  will ONLY speak of Trump’s body language and NOT his politics, ideas,  goals, nor his agenda, Those issues are way out of my level of expertise. I ONLY stick to what I know and I do it accordingly. 

I will  not speak kindly or unkindly about Trump . Instead I will ONLY speak the TRUTH as I see it. I will NEVER hold back ever. I will say what I see and what I hear form ONLY my point of view as it pertains to body language and communication.

 

 

 

Emotional and Humble President Trump During His Victory Speech as He Vows to Bind the Wounds of Division

 

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-11-48-07-pm

In his victory speech,we have seen Donald Trump as we have never seen him before. As he walked down the stairs on to the stage, he looked as though he was going to cry ,as you can see in the photo above.

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-11-49-05-pm

Seeing the audience truly humbled him as he digested the fact that he would be the next President of the United States. As he walked down stage you can see, he was overcome with emotion and looked choked up.

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-11-50-38-pm

As he spoke, his tones were even and measured, calm, and on even keel. He was very gracious about Hillary saying that  he owed her  a debt for the service she has done to this country and said how hard she worked. He then spoke of binding the wounds of division and was  passionate and sincere as he spoke. He also said that for those who did not support him, he was reaching out for guidance to unify this great country. 

Then he spoke of improving the infrastructure of the country and how veterans would be treated as a priority and not forgotten. He said how countries abroad  will be dealt with fairly. And finally, he spoke of seeing common ground.

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-11-49-30-pm

This was a Trump who was not polarizing as he spoke. He did not mention walls, deportation, borders,  ISIS or Hillary’s criminal activities as he did throughout the campaign.

For the first time, we saw his young son Baron up close and personal as he stood beside his father. Standing up there on the stage  for so long would be a challenge for anyone, let alone a 10 year old boy who stood so straight and tall between his parents. Donald thanked Milania and Donny and when he mentioned Ivanka there was a loud roar and lots of applause. He thanked Eric and his daughter in laws. Then he thanked those who helped him during the campaign including  Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Generals, the Secret Service and NYPD. There was no mention of the FBI in his thank you’s for obvious reasons. 

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-11-47-08-pm

Vice President Pence  was also emotional and looked as though he was about to cry as well, when he came up to the stage to introduce Trump. But I noticed that there was something off with Trump’s reaction to Pence, as he thanked Pence last,as an afterthought. He briefly shook Pence’s hand and  quickly pulled away. Pence seemed to want more time and attention,  but Trump, who was very warm and fuzzy on the stage to those he thanked, seemed tense and distant from Pence as he turned around and quickly broke the connection between the two.  This made me wonder if there was some tension between Trump and Pence.

Did Trump regret his choice for Vice President? Did he feel that Pence was not loyal enough to him on the campaign trail? Did he get turned off with Pence for not defending him more intensely during the VP debates? Will he ever forgive Pence for distancing himself from him and giving his “strong” support for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who was running for reelection for his Wisconsin congressional seat? In my view Donald will never forgive him for this. Nor will he forgive Pence  for saying that he “cannot defend” Trump’s comments about women, when Pence  should have said that he cannot defend what Trump said on the bus 11 years ago,  and not generalize it to all women. Doing so, further inflamed the situation.  

It was interesting to watch the election coverage on all of the major networks like CNN and FOX and MSNBC, NBC, and ABC. So many of the commentators like Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper and Megyn Kelly looked shocked at Trump’s win.

Screen Shot 2016-11-09 at 12.50.01 AM.png

ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who  was so obviously biased and grilled Trump during the debates, actually looked as she was going to cry.

As a journalist myself,  I am appalled at how these people covered the campaign with their extreme bias. Now that we have come to find out via Wikileaks how many of these so called “journalists” were in Hillary’s pocket, I think they should all be fired. I think that the networks should get rid of all of them and start fresh. The only decent reporter was  veteran reporter Brett Hume, who spoke of his being unbiased and fair to Trump during the election.

CNN, now known as the Clinton News Network, will suffer the most as will all the  mainstream media.  Wikileaks pointed out they were all in Hillary’s pocket. American’s saw the deceit with the media and now will never trust them again. All of their numbers are dropping as a result, and rightfully so.

That is why Drudge, InfoWars and several other online venues have now emerged as the new mainstream media.

And finally, people like limelight chasing  attorney, Gloria Allred and her daughter Lisa Bloom, need to be held accountable for their irresponsible behavior in parading women around, who later admitted that Trump did not harass them or rape them. In analyzing the body language and speech  of so many of these women, as Gloria sat by their side as they read a script, which no doubt Gloria prepared, I could see how they were laden with signals of deception. I also am livid at what  her “mother -like daughter” Lisa Bloom did in pulling her shenanigan of holding  a presser for the alleged rape victim who was a no show. She wasted everyone’s time and energy.  Then the alleged rape victim admitted it was a lie.

This was unconscionable on Lisa’s part.An attorney knows if they have a case or not or if their client is telling the truth or not. It is one thing to support one’s candidate, but it is another thing to deceive the public and try to destroy someone by crying rape when it did not happen.

What Lisa did hurts the real victims of rape. What Gloria did hurts the real victims of sexual harassment. So many of the women received payment for coming forth and clearly lied. I would never again take anything Gloria or her daughter  Lisa ever said in the media seriously. In fact, I would not ever allow them on the media for pulling this garbage. If Donald was not the President, I am certain that he would sue both of them.

Whether you have supported Hillary or Donald, it is important to keep an open mind now that Donald is our next President of the Unites States of America.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lindsay Lohan On the Road to Recovery By Keeping Toxic Father Michael Lohan Away

MICHAEL – LEAVE LINDSAY ALONE!

What about Lindsay’s telling  her Michael Lohan  that she doesn’t want to see him,  doesn’t he understand? Michael’s most recent desperate and sickening  PR move is to go to the women’s jail anyway, despite Lindsay’s wishes,  and try to see Lindsay anyway.

But, before she went into the facility, Lindsay has made it perfectly clear that she wants noting to do with this TOXIC MAN .  I strongly believe that his visit to her in jail  can cause her even more emotional damage than already exists.

Michael Lohan knows that Lindsay most likely will not  approve him as a visitor at the jail, so he says via  the press that he’ll reach out to the jail’s chaplain to help broker some kind of meeting.

HOW DARE HIM?  Let’s pray that the  chaplain refuses to meet with him as well.

Michael has done more damage to Lindsay and in my opinion she is in the state she is in, largely because of Michael’s Toxic behavior.

Normally, I believe in healing relationships and in getting people back together. I speak of this in my best-selling book TOXIC PEOPLE and in my new book which will be out in November called TOXIC MEN and can be pre- ordered by clicking here http://www.amazon.com/Toxic-Men-Ways-Identify-Miserable/dp/144050007X  

But as I say in ,TOXIC MEN  there are some relationships that are NOT able to be healed . There are some relationships that can never work no matter what. There are some relationships that re-stimulate such toxicity that no good can come of it.I belive the relationship between Lindsay and her father is clearly one of those relationships.

In those cases one must UNPLUG for good as Lindsay has done. I believe that only by Lindsay unplugging from her father and working out her issues concerning  him in her lengthy treatment, can she survive in the long run.

MICHAEL IS CLEARLY USING LINDSAY TO BETTER HIS CAREER

To me it is so clear what is going on here.  While part of the rehab process in using a 12 step approach is to make amends and to forgive those in your life, what Michael is doing is unforgivable in my view.

There are certain things you can never forgive no matter what . Michael is clearly  using Lindsay’s fame and notoriety for his own gain . That is unforgivable.

There was no reason to betray Lindsay and reveal tape recorded conversations  between the  two of them with the media. That is unforgivable.

There was no reason for him to show up in court when she wanted him away from her.He said it was under the guise of helping her but he is in essence doing it to bring attention to himself so that he can later  promote  his tv shows and media ventures. That is unforgivable.

There was no reason for him to show up all over the media after Lindsay went to jail, from Larry King live to radar online to TMZ ans shooting his mouth off about  Lindsay. He knows NOTHING about Lindsay. He is not in her inner circle and he is not close to her. All he has done is further alienate and  embarrass  her. That is unforgivable.

 
LINDSAY TURNED THE PAIN TOWARDS HER  TOXIC FATHER INWARDS

When Lindsay Lohan tweeted before she went to jail  that she wanted nothing to do with her father, I believe that  this was the first healthy sign for her. I hope and pray  that as she gets sober and straightens out her life and that  she gets a court order not only  forbidding Michael to come near her but forbidding him from  ever mentioning  her name.

After observing her father’s shenanigans over the years and now observing  the  latest accusation of violence  leveled against him by  his fiancé Kate Major, it is my view that Lindsay’s father may very well be the root of Lindsay’s problems.

 It seems to me that Lindsay has turned all of the  pain she harbors  towards her TOXIC father inward as a large part of her path towards self destruction. He  no doubt has caused her a lot of emotional damage and intense embarrassment. Her anger and rage are largely due to him.  

MICHAEL LOHAN= BONA FIDE TROUBLE SOURCE WHO’S ACTIONS SHOW HE HAS LOST GOD, NOT FOUND HIM  

Everywhere that  Michael goes, trouble seems to follow this convicted felon who went to prison for beating up his ex wife Dina’s brother.

He says he is a born again Christian and has found God. But I think that based on what we have seen from his behavior over these past years, he may have lost God.

A person who has found God and lives a good Christian life, does not pull a Judas on them and tape record their personal  conversations like he did with Lindsay, Dina, his ex girlfriend and fiancé Erin, his ex boy friend Jon Gosselin,and now his ex fiancé Kate Major.

A man who has found God does not act so hateful and  tell someone they have a “fat ass” on national television like Michael Lohan did to one of the Housewives of  Atlanta.

 A man who has found God does not  allegedly kick his fiancé out of a chair or physically harm her to the point that he has to  have a restraining order or harassment document  filed against him.

MICHAEL IS NOT HEEDING ATTORNEY LISA BLOOM’S ADVICE  TO NOT SPEAK TO THE PRESS

I only have complete respect and admiration for Lisa Bloom who is a fellow media analyst. She is also a very qualified and respected attorney. She is Michael’s attorney. I ran into her in the makeup room at the Insider  at CBS a  few  weeks ago and asked her how she could represent this Toxic Man.

Lisa told me that was able to see the good in Michael and said he had a big heart. She told me how she first met him when they were both volunteering in a soup kitchen to feed the homeless.

 She also told me that he was misrepresented by the press so she said that as his representative one of  her responsibilities  was to  keep him away from speaking to the  press without her guidance,  so he won’t be left to his own devices and do himself damage.

Her efforts worked for a while as she was able to present Michael in a different light. In fact both Michael and Lisa went to court the day of Lindsay’s appearance, to give Judge Marsha Revel a letter a from Michael stating that Lindsay should be in rehab and not in jail. Lisa spoke to cameras while Michael kept still and it was effective. She even went on Larry King live with him to guide what he could and could not say.

 But obviously Michael is not listening to Lisa now.  He is disrespecting her orders to him which are to stay away from the media unless she is involved .  So now he is running off at the mouth and speaking on his own behalf sans Lisa. What he said on TMZ and Radaronline  these past few days has been unconscionable. He is back to his old Michael turn off ways. It is disrespectful to Lisa.

MICHAEL’S COMPLETE DISRESPECT

To me it is clear that Michael has not shown much  respect towards women. He certainly doesn’t respect Kate Major. Kicking her out of a chair or harassing her because she may or may not have an alcohol problem is disrespect. Since he too had alcohol issues at one point, he needed to show sympathy not disdain and alleged abusive behavior  towards Kate.  

Telling Atlanta Housewife on national television she has a fat ass is disrespect.

 Yelling at people is disrespect.

 Taping Dina the mother of his kids and trashing her in the press is disrespect.

Showing up at the jail when Lindsay wants no part of him is disrespect.

And now, not listening to  his attorney Lisa to stay away from the press  and no speak to them is disrespect towards her.  

IS MICHAEL’S SECRET RECORDINGS OF KATE  MAJOR MAY BE CRIMINAL IN CALIFORNIA?

 Michael  spoke to TMZ and Radaronline and even played an recorded audiotape of his conversation with Kate Majors. What he doesn’t realize is that this secret taping BS may work in NY but may not work in Los Angeles.

The fact that he may have taped the conversation with Kate Major while he was in Los Angeles without her permission may cause him some severe problems with the law. It can be a criminal act to do such a thing in California.  

The tapes may have  apparently   been taped in Los Angeles . The contents deal with his checking into a Los Angeles hotel where there was concern by Kate over another woman. Michael denied he was with another woman and said was simply a woman in the lobby next to him when he was checking in. If he did tape in in California this may open up a whole new legal can of worms for him.

MICHAEL’S VICIOUSNESS AND CLUELESSNESS

Yesterday Michael still thought his engagement and subsequent wedding to Kate Major was still on, as he told this to TMZ. But today it is a different story. He has admitted that the wedding is off.

Just to show how vicious Michael is and threatening he is, he can be heard on TMZ threatening to expose Kate Major’s drinking and personal issues and threatening that there will be a lot  about her that will come out if she doesn’t back off.  No doubt, he is trying to intimidate her and  will be releasing her personal  information to the press. He already disparaged her about her relationship with Jon Gosselin.

What Michael doesn’t realize is that all the disparaging remarks he will make about Kate won’t matter as he attempts to put her in a bad light in order to make himself look good. We all know that any woman who was involved with Jon Gosselin and now him has some serious self worth issues. Instead, the public  may feel even more  pity towards her for having such a low opinion of herself for being with him.

Michael’s actions towards Kate Major made me sick. They were all to familiar with these similar tactics which he used towards his other ex girlfriend Erin and ex wife  Dina, the mother of his kids.

. No wonder Dina can’t stand  him  to the point that she too has a restraining order against him. Not that she is so innocent and is without her issues, but at least she is not a frightening and vicious as Michael has shown to be.

Lindsay even said in her tweet that Michael frightens her. Since she has seen him up close and personal she knows exactly what she is talking about better than anyone else.   

IF MICHAEL REALLY  WANTS TO HELP LINDSAY AS HE SAYS HE DOES HE NEEDS TO STAY AWAY FROM HER

Michael needs to stop using Lindsay and her name forever. He needs to stop talking about her to make himself relevant.

 He appears to me  to be a hustler who is trying to sell a bogus TV show first about divorced dads and now about Tiger Wood’s mistresses Joslyn James and Rachel Uchitel. Rachel said she only met him once and has no intention of doing a show with him.

 Any show Michael will do, will never fly in my view. No one in their right mind would want to deal with this over aged Toxic Man who is a completely loose cannon with a violent temper, who has nothing of value to offer. He contributes NOTHING in my opinion except distress. He is irrelevant and the only claim to fame he has is that Lindsay Lohan is his daughter something to which he desperately tries to hang on to .   

If  Michael really loves his daughter,  than he needs to respect her and her wishes. She wishes him to stay away from her.  He must do  that to show he loves her, instead of inserting himself into her life when she cannot stand him.

MICHAEL’S BEHAVIOR  MAY BE  DAMAGING TO HIS  OTHER KIDS

If Michael did all of this damage to Lindsay, what in the world is he doing to his other kids Ali and Cody? He has no custody of them and allegedly hasn’t contributed a great deal financially or emotionally based on his antics.  

 How can these kids respect someone who has had so many verbally violent and public battles with so many women in his life? How can they respect what he is doing? The answer is that they cannot. In my view, his actions will have serious repercussions on them as they mature. Let’s only hope that these kids  don’t turn their hurt and pain towards their father inwards as their sister Lindsay has done.

BOTTOM LINE MESSAGE TO MICHAEL- STAY AWAY FROM LINDSAY AND LET HER HEAL!

Gary Coleman’s Body Language and Behavior In Walking Off Insider Set in Anger Reveals How Desperately He Needs Help

As the Body Language Analyst for The Insider, I was  at  CBS Studios yesterday doing a language analysis post mortem on Gary Coleman’s behavior after he stormed off the set. Gary was interviewed  by the panel  consisting of  anchors Lara  and Chris, steady guest panelist Neece Nash and  guest panelist   Lisa Bloom.  He became very hostile and verbally abusive towards Lisa which was frightening to watch.

It was equally shocking to see how once loveable Gary tuned out. His defensiveness and his  telling  that he has thoughts of not being on this earth were raw were painful to watch. But what was even more painful to watch was his shocking behavior on the set of the Insider.

EMBARRASSMENT AND ESCALATION OF ANGER

Throughout the interview, you could see Gary’s anger escalate. He was very uncomfortable talking about his recent arrest and having to spend time in jail.

It was embarrassing to him, You could tell he was embarrassed as when he spoke he often had his eyes closed, He didn’t want to look at anyone as he spoke about these obviously embarrassing and painful issues. When someone closes their eyes whent hey speak to you, it usually means that they want to disconnect from you and not face you. It reveals embarrassment and shame.

DEFENSIVE AND HOSTILE VOCAL TONES

His tone was extremely defensive and hostile . He made excuses for his behavior and appeared to be in denial as he discussed why he landed in jail. There was also a whininess in his tone which was further indication that he was  on the defensive. He seemed to blame everyone instead of taking responsibility for his actions. He blamed his wife and even blamed everyone including his fans.

SHOCKING REVELATIONS OF SUICIDAL THOUGHTS

What was the most shocking revelation was when Gary spoke of his thoughts of ending his life and not being on this earth.  He was serious  as there was conviciton in his voice when he said these words. This was scary and cler indication that he definateLy needs medical attention.  He also mentioned that he had bipolar disorder.

PROBING QUESTIONS ON THE HOT SEAT APPEARED TO BE TOO  MUCH FOR GARY

Gary was asked whether or not he was still a virgin  by Neece Nash – a question Gary refused to answer directly. Even though he admitted he was a virgin when he was 40, he was not married at the time.  He was flustered by this line of questioning and perhaps rightfullyso.

But instead of giving an simple yes or no  direct yes or no answe,he skirted the issue which made one wonder of he was still a virgin and  whether his physical or medical condition prevented him from consummating his marriage. In an exasperated and angry tone he repeatedly  answered that he  was married and asked “what you do think?”  You could see him becoming very stressed at this point.

CONCERN FOR GARY

When Gary spoke of  thinking about   ending his life, the whole panel became concerned and appeared to reach out to him. In fact, former prosecutor Lisa Bloom  initially reached out to him and touched his arm to reassure him that there was help available  for him with his condition.

MEDICATIONS MAY NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE INCLUDING GARY

He shot back that the medications couldn’t help him. This may very well be the case as it pertains to him. In fact int he recent issue of Newsweek Magazine the cover story is about the ongoing debate about  Antidepressants not working for patients.  In some people medications do not work.

In others there is such an extensive trial and error period to find the right medication  and  the right dosage that this alone could be debilitating.

In others, the side effects of the medication may be worse than the disorder.  And still in others certain medications may not work well when combined with other medications and other medical procedures.

The fact that Gary reportedly goes through dialysis for his kidney problems on a daily basis and may possibly take other medications may be an issue as well. So when he said that medications don’t work for him, he may have a point .

FINGER POINTING AND GARY CURSING LISA OUT

Then body language wise, Lisa may have unknowing done something  that Gary perceived as even more hostile. She pointed her finger at him as she spoke. You can see him physically back up as she does this. Then Gary lets loose with a tirade of vulgarities and in essence curses Lisa out.

She then asks him pint blank if he speaks this way to his wife, He says that he doesn’t unless he has to.

If he spoke this way to a perfect stranger, Lisa Bloom, no telling how he is speaking to his wife at home. You could see Gary’s anger escalate as the veins in his temple region became visibly prominent. He even pointed his finger back at Lisa as she spewed forth obscenities.

Luckily,  Gary took off his microphone and left the set. He left the set cursing all the way to his limo, but nevertheless he left without punching anyone out or using a weapon.

THE PSYCHIATRIST WEIGHS IN ON GARY BEING A DANGER

Even psychiatrist  Dr. Charles Sophy who came on the set to discuss the aftermath of Gary’s behavioral tirade, said that it was frightening and he could have been dangerous right before he walked off the set.

Gary did admit on camera  that he had bipolar disorder. The worst thing for someone with Bipolar disorder is stress as it brings out the worst behavior in a person with that condition.  No doubt that Gary was completely stressed out when he was being interviewed and being on the hot seat . Talking about the arrest, his marriage, his intimacy, and feeling as though he was put into a corner. It obviously  brought out the worst in him.

GARY KNEW AHEAD OF TIME WHAT HE SIGNED UP TO DO

While Lisa is great and a wonderful legal analyst and prosecutor, in retrospect,  think that after Gary reveled he was bipolar, perhaps she could have not been so aggressive with him in terms of her tone and the finger  pointing behavior. It was the finger pointing  in my view that casued Gary to back u and become very hostile towards her.

While the confrontation made great TV, it certainly was jarring to Gary for him to react as he did.

On the other hand, Gary knew that this would be the focus of the show and that he would be on the hot seat and would be  grilled. He is a seasoned professional and  knew what he signed up for and he did not have to be there. No one forced him to do the show.  In fact at the beginning of the show he said that he was  there for the money.

WALKING OFF A SET IS PROFESSIONAL SUICIDE

Gary being the professional he is and literally growing up on television and film sets, knows that you NEVER walk of any set. You handle yourself and deal with what has to be dealt with while the cameras are rolling, no matter what. You NEVER walk off any set! That is the professional suicide. But obviously the stress was so intense he had to break it, by leaving the set.

At one point during his interview he also tries to break the stress level my changing the subject and telling Chris he looks like Matt Lauer which was a complement. But then he takes that compliment back by telling Chris he doesn;t want hin to get a swelled head. It was said as a tension releaser.

GARY’S PARTING SHOT

His parting shot was to obscenely  put up his finger and shout an obscenity into the camera as he got inside the awaiting limousine, which ironically happened to be Lisa Bloom’s limousine.

GARY;S AFTERMATH

In the wake of Gary’s tirade, he left a lot of frightened and upset people. Many of the cast and crew were frightened by his behavior, especially towards the end. There is no doubt that seeing this scenario unfold on camera is jarring to Gary’s many fans who grew up watching and loving him.

It is clear from his anger filled behavior  that Gary needs to get himself sorted out before he makes any additional public appearances. He needs to put himself in situations where he doesn’t get that stressed, especially of he isn’t taking medication to help control his Bipolar disorder.

PRAYERS FOR GARY

I pray for Gary that he does not self- destruct. He needs to take a more positive approach to life and count his blessings. There are people who really love him out there, like one of his fans who bailed him out of jail, whom he has yet to thank.

Gary has been through a lot of hell with his health issues that he has discussed publicly. He has been through a lot with his TOXIC parents literally ripping him off financially and leaving him destitute. He has had to endure a lot of public ridicule throughout the years.

He reportedly  felt the public humiliation at having to work as a mall security guard to earn a living after being at the top of a show business career.  He felt humiliated by the play Avenue Q where he was parodied  and felt helpless because he didn’t have the money to sue.   He has had many runs ins with so may people  that landed him in the headlines in a negative way.

My heart goes out to Gary  because there is no doubt that life has been difficult for him . But life has also been great for him and he needs to look at all of those great things in his life and count his blessings.

Maybe that will help him eliminate some of the internal stress and hostility  he harbors  and give him a happier more productive  life. There is no doubt that Gary needs professional help. Even if he doesn’t take medication,in my opinion  he needs to have someone on hand whom he can speak with on a regular basis to help him cope with his issues.

Kate Gosselin’s Fake Tears on Last TLC Interview Explained. She Was Fed What To Say Via Earpiece – TLC Tried to Rehab Her Image and Failed

Kate erarpeoce
TLC FAILS AT KATE’S IMAGE REHAB

After Kate Gosselin’s first Q and A Special on TLC, where she tossed papers and showed her hostility, arrogance, and self entitlement, and signals of deceptions, the public was very turned off. TLC knew this. So they tried to do some quick image rehab. That this why they immediately put her on the air the following week, to give her another chance and fix the damage . This time, they changed up the format and had her interviewed with a pro from the Today show, Natalie Morales. This time around, TLC did not let Kate talk directly into the camera or leave her to her own devices. Instead, they used their own devices- An Earpiece put into Kate’s ear where they fed Kate what to say and fed her when to cry .

It didn’t matter what TLC tried to do to improve Kate’s image. My Body Language Analysis told it all! I still saw through the false manipulation. Why? Because the body and the voice don’t lie. I picked up all her “tells,” even though she tried to be subdued. Right after her second TLC interview I went on The Insider and shared that Kate was still arrogant, self absorbed, and entitled. She still lied and showed signals of deceptions. The only difference I noticed was that tears, fake tears that weren’t spontaneous. She also paused a lot more and sounded more stilted and deliberate. I then said on the Insider that “anyone who spent that much time crying on a journalist’s couch needed to spend the same amount of time on a therapist’s couch. “

But now the truth has been revealed as to the reason for the fake tears and the long pauses and stilted talk. One of my dear readers, Jibber Jabber sent me a video to analyze. It said it all! Kate wore an earpiece and she was being fed when to cry and what to say. That is why she paused all the time and spoke more deliberately to hear whomever was on the other end, spinning it for her.

TLC TRIED TO MANIPULATE US AND SHOVE A FALSE IMAGE OF KATE DOWN OUR THROAT TO RECOUP THEIR LOST REVENUES

If there is any a good reason to boycott any show by TLC starring Kate Gosselin this is it.!How dare them try to manipulate me and you! How dare them think that the public is so stupid they wouldn’t see past their bullshit! How dare them try to present the new Kate as a teary eyed victim so she will be more likeable when they give her her own show.

The ONLY reason this woman is offered her own talk show is because TLC has lost a lot of money since Jon pulled out. So to get their revenue back from their cash cow Jon and Kate Plus 8, they are giving Kate her own show. They think they have a built in audience and that people who watched Kate Plus 8 will now watch Kate! Wrong! People watched Kate Plus 8 watched to see the babies grow up. Now that the kids are older, they are not fun to watch and aren’t as interesting. Also no one likes to see children exploited.

TLC DOESN’T THINK WHAT IS BEST FOR THE KIDS- ONLY EXPLOITING THE KIDS

The kids are five years old and this is exploitation now in my opinion. They are now, in Kate’s own words, showing signs of acting out because of the divorce. If these kids are acting out or in emotional pain, for God’s sake get a camera out of their faces and get them into therapy. Since TLC exploited them, they must pay for the therapy they now need .

When their peers are starting to notice they are little celebs and Kate gives them horrible advice like she gave Leah, it’s time for the kids to get off television for good. Tt is a blessing in disguise these 5 year olds are now off the air. Jon did it to get back at Kate, but he really ended up doing those kids a favor in the long run.

On the latest TLC debacle, Kate shared that a little classmate of Leah’s said she saw Leah on TV. Kate told Leah to tell the classmate, “ I don’t want to talk about it!” What???? If you don’t want to talk about it, then get off TV ! That is horrible advice to give Leah. It makes her look like a little Bitch and it hurts the innocent classmate’s feelings! That is bad parental advice !!!! Ratings would have plummeted anyway as the kids grew older.

MADY, WHO CALLED KATE “MEAN” REALLY NEEDS THERAPY NOW!!

Also let’s bring Mady in now. Mady is the older child- the twin girl always crying and having a tantrum on the show. She was NOT presented in a very good light. Now that she is a tween she does not need her peers to seeing her acting like a mess. The way she was handled was horrific.

She was punished for craving love and attention. That is why she acted out. She needs MAJOR therapy now from all the damage that was done to her. I shudder to think how she will be when she will be an adult. Pay for her treatment NOW. She harbors so much anger and rightfully so. This girl is the one who said to Kate “You’re mean.” when selfish narcissistic Kate took a drink of water and didn’t give Mady a sip. That was captured on camera. Can you imagine what else Kate has done to be “mean “ to Mady when there are no cameras present?

On one of my blogs I showed how Kate, who is supposed to be spending alone time with Mady ignores her and is on the phone. She clearly shows that Mady is the least liked of all the kids. Mady knows this. That is why she squeals to Jon about the ongoings in the household when he isn’t around.

All of this mean behavior towards her and being labeled as the troubled child and showing her in this bad light will no doubt have negative ramifications as she gets older. TLC needs to pay for the damage they caused her big time! Kids at her age are so critical and will continue to be until she is in college. Can you imagine the teasing she could get and mean comments from other girls in the locker room as they call her a “brat” or bring up her antics from the show. OUCH!!

KATE HAS NO BUSINESS HAVING HER OWN SHOW AND TLC KNOWS IT!

People watched the show to see growing babies. But to watch Kate alone would be absolute torture. Who wants to see a show with a mean spirited, nasty , arrogant, narcissistic, abusive, self absorbed, self righteous, ego driven woman who brings nothing to the table. So what that she took fertility drugs and had to stay in bed during her pregnancy and then delivered sextuplets. )By the way that line was obviously fed to her on the TLC Special because it was a nonsequiter and didn’t make sense when she said it on the Special . It came out nowhere. Now we see it came out of her earpiece from words fed to her by TLC or their minions).

As a nurse, Kate knew what she was doing when she took the fertility drugs. She knew the consequences. What angers people is not that she had the babies )God bless them all). What angers people is her self entitlement that we are now responsible for HER kids . We didn’t shove those pills down her throat! She took them voluntarily and now has to deal with the consequences- not US!

She isn’t some haggard mother who has to raise her kids alone. She has had loads of help and nannies and house cleaners and has load of money. All of the kids are financially taken care of according to her. She is not the poster mom for motherhood.

She is anything but that. She has verbally and physically abused Jon and has verbally abused those kids. She has treated Mady horribly. To me, she hasn’t shown signs of being such an ideal mother. And don’t give me some garbage about how would I know, not having 8 kids. Those kids need love and kindness more than a clean house and clean shirts as Jon ever said many times on the show.

KATE IS NOT LIKEABLE AND DOES NOT HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OR THE ‘IT’ FACTOR IT TAKES TO BE A SUCCESSFUL TELEVISION PERSONALITY

Now before some of you blind Kate fan start accusing me of hating Kate (I told you many times all the people whom I hate and Kate is not on my list) or telling me I don’t know what I am talking about, let me assure you I know what I am talking about more than anyone in the world! I have spent the last two decades in Hollywood helping people with “IT” get polished in terms of their body language and communication skills to get camera ready . You see many of the people I worked with on TV today, hosting major shows. Many have been on the air for a long, long time! So don’t even go there with me!

Studios and managers and agents have sent me their clients throughout the years to make significant changes in how their clients come across the airwaves. One of my early clients was teaching Dustin Hoffman to sound like a woman for Tootsie and one of my last clients was getting Will Smith’s character’s image ready in Seven Pounds. I have worked with countless A list Academy Award winners and Emmy Winners and countless stars who came to me when they were just starting out. I;m not bragging or tooting my own horn. It’s just the facts. It lets you know that this is what I do and what I know.

Every upcoming TV star or host or reporter or commentator with whom I worked had something in common. It is called “IT”- a likeability factor- or as they refer to it in Hollywood “Likeability Quotient”. So when I tell you KATE does not have IT, believe me. No Hollywood agent, manager or studio head in their right mind would EVER EVER give Kate a show. She brings NOTHING to the table. Big deal that she was a bitchy mom of 8 kids on a reality show. That is NO experience of getting your own talk show. She is NOT an expert. She is NOT a role model as you NEVER want to be treating your husband or kids the ways he treated them. She is NOT likeable, warm friendy, kind, and most of all she is self absorbed and HATES HER FANS! Bad qualities for ANYONE who wants a media career,
\

ANOTHER REASON WHY KATE WIL FAIL- SHE HATES HER FANS
TLC last feeding into her earpiece was some bullshit about the FANS. It was insincere and did NOT ring TRUE! She said “I used to find the fans an annoyance and now I appreciate them.” Of course she does,! She finally got it, that without her fans she cant have her own show. So they told her , through her earpiece, to do a shout out to the fans! It was lame and not heartfelt. You can see how she doesn’t like her fans at her books signings and lectures. She treats them like inanimate objects. There is no warmth . People feel when they are liked and appreciated and she does NOT like her fans. She said so and she shows it! You cant take that back when you realize that Fans are a commodity. That is unforgettable and FANS will ALWAYS remember her words, There is no going back and no spin that could fix what she said.

Those who have major longevity on TV and in film LOVE their fans. I know Nancy Grace really well- even before she became a super star when she was just beginning on Court TV. I saw up close and personal how she LOVED LOVED LOEVD her fans. Fans would come into the studio and she made them feel so welcome. Even how she talks to caller on her show now is real and warm and beautiful. She loves them and appreciates them.

ANOTHER REASON KATE WILL FAIL – SHE HATES THE PAPPS

The next thing is Kate HATES the papps, She coldly and hatefully looked straight at Natalie and said she had a HATE/HATE relationship with the papps. You can NEVER EVER go back on those words. They will ALWAYS REMEMBER IT. Because of it, they will make her life even more papp unfriendly and unfortunately, the spillover will be to her kids. The TLC earperice feeders must have been dozing off to let that one get by. Maybe they figured they would let her answer that one. But she completely BLEW it!! If she thinks the papps are bad now just wait if she gets a show. She can have an army of bodyguards. It won’t help. Her life will be a war with them. She started it and they will win it. I have seen this scenario many times with many people up close and personal. If Papps and reporters aren’t on your side and you want to be out there in the public eye FUGEDABOUDIT!!

TLC KNOWS DEEP DOWN SHE ISNT READY FOR PRIME TIME

You don’t get to be a TV Exec if you haven’t had successes in making hit shows. By the same token, you don’t get to remain a Studio Exec, if you have failures. This is a failure waiting to happen! TLC executives obviously know she isn’t ready to have her own show. As I said They know she doesn’t have the IT factor as they call it in Hollywood or The Likeability factor. That is why they are working so hard to spin her into a likeable victim. But it backfired.

They know she is not qualified to host a show, so they have been scrambling to get her some chopps. They stuck her on as aa guest host of the View to get experience and she bombed. All it was, was a trash fest against Jon until Whoopie let her have it! Then TLC scrambled to get her hooked up with Paula Deen for more chopps. Having Kate on Paula Deen’s new show is a sure fire way to ruin Paula’s show. Now Paula Deen has IT! See what I am talking about ! It is love warmth and likeability. You can’t manufacture or change IT. You either have IT or you DON’T AND Kate DOESN’T have IT!!!

ANOTHER REASON KATE’S SHOW WILL FAIL- SHE DOESN’T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE AND BRINGS NOTHING TO THE TABLE!

If you brought Kate Gosselin or Jon for that matter, into any Hollywood agent’s office or suit’s office (Studio exec) NO ONE would give Kate a show EVER! She has no experience. She has not been properly trained or schooled and is too self absorbed. Being a bitchy mom on a reality show and playing your unlikeable self is no experience for a talk show host. TLC knows this. That is why they scrambled to get her some chopps as I said earlier. But you need more experience than that to do a show, especially if you have zero to bring to the table.

Now for all you blind Kate fans ,PLEASE don’t throw up examples of people who had and now have talk shows and had no experience. It is a rarity. And if they don’t have experience, they have magnificent ,electric , larger than life personalities, They are loveable, they are bright, and have a skill that people are interested in.

I will spare you the effort and do it for you. They may have not had experience but they ALL HAD “IT”. They all had charisma and a high Likeability Quotient and they ALL brought something to the table unlike Kate. A mean fertility pill taking sextuplet bearing , multi helper, multi houskeepered, multi nannied mother who is narcissistic and self absorbed with NOTHING to say except to LIE repeatedly and bash her bad husband and her complete insensitivity to those kids as she continues to Bash, BRINGS NOTHING TO THE TABLE!

Montel had no talk show experience when he began, but he brought a heck of a lot to the table. He was loveable, compassionate, brilliant, educated, a Navy Seal, humane and totally unselfish and LOVED his audience. Riki Lake was an actress so that is chopps enough and besides, s he brought a LOT to the table and was smart and loveable. She had a back story of her own that people loved. Back in the day, she was cool and hip and everyone LOVED Riki. Dr. Phil didn’t have experience but brought a heck of a lot to the table. I just watched him in action last Tuesday, when I was a guest on his show. He LOVES his audience and they LOVE him back. He really cares about people other than himself which is repeatedly demonstrated and not the case with Kate. Rachel Ray is full of spunk and charisma and a bundle of delight. She’s watchable. Besides, she brings a eal skill to the table – cooking. While not the most charismatic, Martha Stewart brinks homemaking knowledge. Kate brings- zero or how to mess up your kids.

I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT REGARDING SHOWS- THEY ARE NOT EASY

As I said I have been in the TV business either behind the scenes as a professional helping on camera personalities be the best they can be and shine even brighter. I have even been in front of the scene myself as a reporter for KABC TV for years and a commentator on numerous shows for decades. I have even guest hosted some shows back in the day, like AM Detroit Kelly and Company and AM San Francisco and Healthwise .I was an OK host– not great! There are a heck of a lot of people who are much better at that then I was. I also did several pilots for shows – one called Midnight Confessions for Pax TV and one for a major studio. I even had my own radio show in Palm Springs for a while and filled in on ABC and KABC Radio. I am not telling you this to impress you. I am telling you this because I had the experience and I know what I am talking about.

I am always approached by someone to do a show and have been for years. But I don’t want to do something I am not qualified to do or that someone can do better who is a lot more qualified than myself. No one can come close to Dr. Phil, so I would never think of doing a show like his.

But no one can come close to me in the Body Language and Behavioral Analysis arena. So if I were to do a show about reading people, that could definitely work. I am also not self consumed and don’t think I’m all that. I know who I am and I am very secure with that. I know I am not the most beautiful or the hottest. But I do know I bring a hell of a lot to the table.I am highly educated and know my stuff and also really care about others and about exposing bullshit. I respect the public enough that I strongly believe they must not be fooled.

I WRITE YOU THESE BLOGS FROM THE HEART AS IF I WAS CASUALLY SPEAKING WITH YOU SO EXCUSE THE GRAMMAR

That is why I take my time to do these blogs .And as a sidebar, please don’t get mad at me for my bad grammar. I write these blogs as I would exactly speak to personally if you were right here next to me and we were having a one on one intimate talk. So sometimes they aren’t grammatically correct. Sometimes you will see misspellings because I hurry and want to get this out to you early so you can read it. I may not have checked it over carefully enough. I apologize. In fact one of my precious readers has offered to help me clean up my grammar so I won’t aggravate some of you. So bear with me. But enough about me.

HERE IS WHO SHOULD HAVE A SHOW BEFORE KATE GOSSELIN

Here are some people who REALLY deserve their own show. Before even thinking about Kate here are the people that should have shows.

1 ROLANDA WATTS- Nobody and I mean nobody can beat her. She is like Oprah and Rachel Ray combined. She used to have a show with Kingworld back in the day and I was always on her syndicated show. She is smart, educated, compassionate, funny, LOVES her fans and they LOVE her. She is sharp, has her chopps, easy on the eye, and fun to watch. She;s even more fun to hang out with. She has a lot to say. You can watch her on braveheartwomen.com
2. LISA LING AND HER SISTER LAURA LING- THE LING SISTERS
They are beautiful and bright and warm and wonderful and they definitely have their chopps. Laura is the ultimate survivor and can relate to anyone in turmoil, after surviving the possibility of having to spend the rest of her life in a North Korean Work Camp. Her sister Lisa, formerly of the View showed what a loving sister she was and was so articulate in her plea and gratitude at the end. She has traveled the world with National Geographic TV so she knows people, places, and things and can relate to anyone. I would LOVE to see them have a show together,

3.FAMED ATTORNEY GLORIA ALRED AND HER ATTORNEY AND HOST DAUGHTER LISA BLOOM
Putting these beautiful talent brilliant women on a show would be great. They are both great mothers. Gloria is definitely a great mother as well as being a great attorney as look who she spawned- Lisa who is beautiful, warm, loveable, smart, real and an excellent TV personality. She now hosts for CNN and used to have her own show at Tru Tv. I was on her show many times and she was wonderful. I would LOVE to see the two of them on their own show together.

4, JIM MORET- HOST, REPORTER
For years Jim hosted Showbiz Today on CNN. Now he is a staple on Inside Edition and other shows. He is an attorney. He is a veteran reporter. He has covered the biggest stories in the world, He is smart, funny, warm and gorgeous. I remember him back from my reporting days when I was a Psychology Reporter at KABC TV. He was just starting out on air at KABC and all the women had crushes on him. I know Jim and he is the nicest man- a great family man with a huge heart and lots of compassion. He definitely deserves his own show.

There are so many others whom I would rather watch, who really deserve a show. To give Kate a show is an insult to the viewers and shows TLC’s greediness, especially when there are so many other people out there who are much more qualified and likeable.

Please feel free to email me and comment to let me know whom you would like to see having their own show as opposed to Kate Gosselin.
