What women won’t do… or men… Janet, Michael,Patti…

Just could not resist snipping this from MSN Entertainment….

Anyhoo…someone else who’s undergone gastric bypass — and a host of other procedures — is giving a tongue-lashing to stars who deny partaking in ©Sara De Boer/Retna Ltd.the latest medical breakthroughs.

“Oh my God! Those liars! I hate them!” Sharon Osbourne railed during an appearance on E!’s.  “They are like, ‘I didn’t do anything.’ Meanwhile, their eyebrows are here.”

Sharon, whose plastic surgeon probably enjoys rolling around in a crisp pile of cash collected from her admitted boob job, butt lift, leg lift, liposuction, tummy tuck and facelift, reserves extra venom for a certain line-free Oscar winner.

“Can’t we all just get along? Eh, scratch that — celebrities are always so much more fun when they’re slamming someone or something. In this bad-mouthing edition, we bring you girl fighting, Botox-baiting and more.

Star Jones should just stop commenting on the past. 
“Get over it, girlfriend…and move on.”
“Those girls were hateful.” So snipes Star Jones to Essence as she calls out the supposedly vitriolic behavior of her former “View” co-hosts Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Barbara Walters after she announced she was leaving the gab-fest.

TRetna Digitalhe gastric bypass-slimmed Star (“That surgery saved my life,” she says) also accuses the most senior member of the coffee klatch of conspiring against her, telling the mag, “Barbara set me up.”

(In her onetime couch mates’ defense, they did have to sit through months and months of Jones endlessly babbling about her corporate-sponsored fairytale wedding to her Prince Charming, also known as Al “Legs of a Stallion” Reynolds, whom she split with in March. That would be enough to make anyone a mite cranky.)

But of a truth (as the Jamaicans say)…if I were to step into an elevator with just me and Star Jones…I probably wouldn’t know it was her.  Because I think she did more than just that gastric thang.  Her face looks different.  And I know weight lose can do that…but…not like that.     

And I have stepped into elevators with plenty of people…believe me.   It is not hard to in New York.

Once while dropping off a package at Writer’s Guild of American, on 57th Street, I stepped into the elevator to find myself in it with Ed Bradley.  You will not know how shocked I was to look up and see that it was him.

“Ed Bradley,” I exclaimed without thinking. 

It must have been the way that I said it…because I think I frightened the guy.

Then there was the time that I got into an elevator and found myself alone with Frankie Crocker.  And I will never forget the time it was me and Percy Sutton alone on an elevator…what a handsome and very kind gentleman he was.

And, oh…yes.  Going back to Ed Bradley…when the elevator door opened and Ed got off…he said-

“Hi, Leslie.”

And she said, “Hi, Ed.”

And for a moment I thought I was home watching “60 Minutes”…as Leslie Stale got on the elevator with me just as Ed  Bradleyvacated it. 

That’s New York, baby.

Thanks,

But what won’t women do?

I mean I am all for looking good and everything.  But what happened to-

“Growing old with grace?”tina-turner.jpg

Sharon Osbourne has had about everything done that could be done…all of which Tina Turner comes by naturally. 

And my goodness…doesn’t Patti LaBelle look good for a woman in her 60’s?   (though Patti did get a nose job some years ago)

I think I will just love what God has given me…He after all is a God of perfection.  

So, how can you improve upon that?

In regards to everything else… 

Well, God doesn’t make us fat…we do that to ourselves.  And some of those grotesque family features which some of us ‘just can’t stand.’  Well, overtime they mellow out…and over time…   Well, it all comes kind of comes together. 

The problem is…we see ourselves through everyone else’s eyes.  Or better yet…what we think is through ‘everyone else’s eyes.’  When really that is an impossible feat. 

Appreciate what God has given you. 

I learned that lesson one night while working on that job which I told you in an earlier blog was the worst job I ever had…everyone hated me there.  I was in management…my signature was being falsified on various company documents…everytime something went wrong ‘I was to blame.’ 

It was the worst possible circumstance…and I started thinking about suing the company…but God told me ‘no don’t sue.’  You have to read that blog if you want to find out the whole story…but that company ended up paying me…and paying me for a very long time…and I did what God told me not to do.  I didn’t sue them…and I got paid anyhow (hundreds of thousands of dollars)…this is God. It would have never have happened any other way.  And I haven’t had to work a day since. 

But one day while working…I was handling some business at the front counter and a woman and her male escort approached the counter.  She had been burned severely.  I could tell that at some point she most have been very attractive…but that was all gone now.  Yet, she and her escort…I called him that…but he was the man with her…they were having a good time.  They laughed and chatted as though she hadn’t a mark on her face at all.  That is when I realized…after years of thinking of myself as being ugly…that God doesn’t create anything ugly. 

We may not like what we have been given…but it is not ugly.  And Barry Gordy and the Temptations were right…beauty really is skin deep.  And that other guy was right too…”beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

Was that Shakespeare who said that?

It all reminds me of Michael Jackson…just too much money and having nothing to do with it.  Nothing to do…but to sit around and think-

“How can I mess up what God has given me?”

And truly if ever there was a crime…it is what Michael did to himself.  When you look back on all those old pictures of him…you have to wonder how in the world could his mind have been so twisted with regard to his looks.  The boy was handsome…the man is a nightmare. I have always felt deeply for Michael.

Speaking of the JacksonsJanet isn’t doing well these days.  Recently she had to put off her tour.  I understand that she is suffering from vertigo.  It is a state of dizziness. We pray that God will remove that illness from her…and from my aunt Kate.

I have an aunt who suffers from it, our Aunt Kate.  It has been many years now…with it recently being more presistent now she told me the last time we spoke.   No one has to tell me about dizziness…and I am sure you either.  I suffered a head injury and occasionally have my moments.  I couldn’t imagine wanting…well, nobody wants it…being dizzy all of the time. 

All I can say Janet pray and have a firm believe in God…it will see you through it all.    And many times…He gives intervention.  He is just that good.

Well, be encouraged all…     God bless…and thanks for reading.
