Classy, Gracious, Proffesional Women of the World Unite and Stand By Our Girl Star! Posted by Picasa

Thank You Star Jones. . .

For showing us how to take the high road when cattiness rules. I've had it with Barbara Walters and I think she's finally shown us her true colors. After watching Star on Larry King last night I have been so impressed with how she has been handling Barbara and the media powerhouse that is ABC. Refusing to attack, taking the high road and having the guts to set the record straight, no matter what anyone else thinks Star is coming out on top and Barbara has egg on her face.

To hear the manipulation that this women went through, telling her that she is being let go but that she can make up a story as cover, leaking stories about her, a countdown till when she leaves, it's just disgusting! But what bothers me the most is that when she made her announcement, under the auspicious that she would say a final goodbye in July, Barbara held her hand, raved about her, then the very next day she made a cruel speech about Star! The audacity of women sickens me sometimes--how ugly can you get? But I've had it with Barbara once and for all! It's strikes me that when the show is a sucess it's "Barbara's show" but when this happens it's "the executives at ABC" making the decisions! How transparent can you be?

KING: Why didn't you sit down with her and say, Barbara, what is this with Rosie? And why, when you knew I had been attacked, did you go with Rosie to the Emmys? REYNOLDS: I did. KING: And what did she say? REYNOLDS: This was a business decision and wrap yourself around it, Star. KING: That's what she said? REYNOLDS: Yes. I was sitting in an office, and I was very clearly told, Rosie is coming, wrap yourself around it. And I thought to myself, wow. After nine years, I would have thought that at least I would have gotten, I'm sorry that someone was so hurtful to you, but we're going to move in another direction. Because that's respectful. What I hate about this more than anything, and may I share it, is this is the worst example of what people say about women. I will not be in a cat fight. It's not who I am. It's not who I want to be. It's not who I was raised to be. Women professionals need to perform as women professionals, and I have sat across from the greatest female journalist of our times. KING: Barbara Walters. REYNOLDS: And I have learned from that woman. She's my mentor. I have learned as much about television from her as I learned about the law from my friend, the late Johnnie Cochran. And I've got to tell you, I will not, no matter what anybody does or tries to bait me to do, I will not denigrate Ms. Walters, ever. That's not who I am.

Now how classy is that! Way to go Star--your my newest female hero!

Sophia hasn't quite figured out how
to grab things and stick them in her mouth
but we figured out that is she wedged in
in her chair she could use her hands around
it,--whatever works right. Posted by Picasa

I think we're teething. . .

Constant drooling, chewing, you tell
me. . . Posted by Picasa

Soccer Fan in the Making

Go USA! Go Ghana! We don't normally watch
TV with Sophia, but we've discovered that
if we don't include her, she gets scared when we
start cheering. So it's become interactive! Posted by Picasa

Too Many Toes. . .

This little piggy went to market
This little piggy stayed home
Um er
This little piggy ate something. . .um
This little piggy was his cousin Joe. . .

This little piggy went wee wee wee
all the way home!

Ohkay so I'm a novice--thankfully she doesn't
seem to mind. Posted by Picasa

World Cup fever has hit our house hold. Four years
ago durring the last WC both Nate and I were getting
up at four am to catch the all important football game.
And we didn't even know eachother at the time.
Even though the weathers been gray and we've been
hanging out on the couch its been a thrilling weekend.
A chill of excitment hit us both durring the opening ceremonies and we've
enlisted in a World Cup Fantasy Team which has
actually been a lot of fun. Our secret weapon is
actually Nate's mom. A huge sports fan she's our
team manager.
I wanted to capture a picture of Sophia when she
wasn't much bigger than the ball itself. I don't know if
she'll ever be interested but we joke that she's been
born under a Sports Moon. Winter Olympics and World Cup
not to mention March Madness and NBA Finals. . the girl
doesn't stand a chance. Posted by Picasa
