This morning I blogged about Wendy Williams. I wrote that I loved her, and her show, and wanted to meet her. Well, you’ll never guess who called a mere 4 hours after my posting. The Wendy Williams Show! They called because they saw the blog, and Ms. Williams would like to meet me when she is in Los Angeles next week.
How fabulous is that? You are classy Wendy, and I’m thrilled that you found the blog, dug it, and want to meet me. It could have gone either way I guess. I could have been labeled a stalker and quickly dismissed, but no. She saw the love, appreciated my blog, and respected the Jewish Journal.
I am beyond excited to meet Wendy, and will try to stay composed. That said, it’s not everyday you get to meet your new BFF, so I might be totally not cool, and cry. My son and I are going to hang out with her on Wednesday. Why take my son you ask? Because he knows how excited I am, and he will get joy, from seeing my joy.
How many opportunities do we, as mothers, get to show our children that wishes come true? As wonderful as it will be to meet her, it will be even more special to share it with my son. My life as a mother is about making him happy, so for him to see me be school girl giddy, is a blessing, and I can’t wait to show him off to Ms. Williams.
There has been a huge uproar around Sarah Palin this week. It’s fascinating how many people have written to demand that I shove her under the bus for her statements about the health care bill, and those who voted for it. I’m not sure how it is possible that my singles blog, has somehow been sucked in all this political drama.
I appreciate that people care about my opinion, and are so invested in what I have to say. I’m sorry to disappoint you all, but I don’t really have anything to say about it. I suppose I could say, I think her posting targets on her Facebook page, over the locations of the politicians who abandoned the Republican Party, and voted with the Democrats, was disgusting.
I could say that her statement about lock and load, or whatever she said, were deplorable. I could say that people completely overreacted, and are villianizing her because of who she is, and everyone needs to chill. I could say that people need to worry about real things like obesity of urban children, and hunger of rural children in America, and leave her alone.
Yup, I could say all of it, but I won’t. What I will say is that I am a supporter of President Obama, and the health care bill. I will say that I was a huge fan of Teddy Kennedy, and he would be pleased with the bill. I will say that Elisabeth Hasselbeck annoys the crap out of me.
At the end of the day, it does not matter what I say. Liberals will think I needed to be harsher, and call her out for being dangerous. Conservatives, will be disappointed that I bought into the propaganda about who she is, and what she believes. I will let Sarah Palin fight her own battles, and I will simply be quiet, and support OUR President.
Just a quick reminder to all of my readers: to those of you who read daily, and those who find me by accident and decide to come back, I am not a political blogger. I write about being single, over 40, a single mother, and my search for love. I leave political discussions to the politicians, and you should send your political comments to political bloggers.
I just read that Bethany Frankel, from The Real Housewives of New York City, did not invite Jill Zarron to her wedding, which is happening tomorrow. Are you kidding me Bethany? That better be gossip, and not true. If you did in fact not invite her, it means you are a petty, selfish, and stupid girl. No matter what has happened between you, she should be there.
If I were Jill, I might choose to not come, but the decision needs to be hers, not yours. After everything you have been through together, and everything she did for you, especially when your life was falling apart, for you to not include her, is disgusting. Grow up, and call her. You need to beg her to come and share your day, or you will feel bad about it forever.
Dennis Hopper received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. He has pancreatic cancer, and looked so frail. To see him was shocking at first, but it quickly became lovely. I was so happy to see him get his star. That he was well enough to be there, to share it with his children, and have that moment with his friends and fans, was wonderful to see.
To be so ill, a moment like this might lift his spirits, and give him the strength, and motivation, to fight for one more day. One more day with his children, and that is magic. I don’t know what is going on in his house, but I read all the entertainment magazines, and to his soon to be ex-wife I want to say, really?
Let this man die in peace. You are behaving badly, and in the end, when your daughter is old enough to understand, she will see that you tormented her father when he was ill, and at the end of his life. Seriously, stop being so selfish, and give your daughter the gift of her father, for as long as she can have him.
It’s been a long week, and I am very thankful that it is Friday! My son is on Spring Break and I am thrilled to have him home. We are going to hang out, relax, chill with friends and enjoy ourselves. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Be kind to one another, pray for the troops to come home quickly, and love your kid. Shabbat Shalom, and keep the faith.
