    Live With Kelly And Ryan

    There was more “if I won the lottery “ talk yesterday! Honestly, between the constant oversharing from talk show hosts and celebrities who really have no clue what a real problem is , and the pretending to be poor , talk shows are getting unwatchable!

    All Episodes Talk: Orange is the New Yuck!

    Now Katie Lee from the Food Network posted a long Instagram post about her infertility issues too ! I am so so tired of women who are hitting 40 and now want to start having kids naturally, being so shocked that they are having a hard time! Reality is, you are past your ideal time to get pregnant biologically speaking , which is in your 20’s. No it isn’t fair that men get to be old farts and marry women young enough to be their daughters and father another family , but it’s not like their bodies have to go through a lot to have a baby ! It amazes me that intelligent , educated women are surprised that they will have a hard time after they get closer to 40 when they went to get pregnant. It does suck because I think s women who is older and has more education and life experience is much more ready to be a mom, but sometimes it physically can’t happen . I guess I’m tired of every celebrity or host feeling a need to tell us every little thing about their personal lives because some idiots on Instagram make insensitive comments about them looking pregnant or asking them why they have no children, or not more children. I have an Idea, ignore the comments and don’t feel pressured to share anything or explain yourself ! If someone chooses to share their problems , that is one thing, but more and more these public figures do not know how to just ignore stupid comments or not over share ! Pink was all upset because idiots on Instagram attacked her for pictures of her kids . Well, she stupidly posted pictures of them without diapers and naked . Wtf was she thinking ? Does she not know those weirdos could be a problem for her kids if she did that ? Now she had to go to Ellen to cry about it ! Just stick to singing and have some common sense when posting pictures and stop being a martyr beside you didn’t even respect your kids’ privacy ! I miss the days when people didn’t feel a need to share every thing about themselves on tv or social media ! I don’t look to celebrities to tell me how to handle life, and I wish they would just stick to doing their jobs and entertain or inform us !

    Live With Kelly And Ryan

    Today her dress looked awful on her boney, flat chest . It was cut below her ribs between her upper breast and the microphone was pulling down the front to expose her non-existent breasts and exposed breast bone ! it seemed like Kelly was determined for everyone to see her boney chest. She was sticking her chest out and putting her arms behind her through the the whole show. Does she think she’s sexy and she is making sure everyone sees her breasts ? I have never seen her sit pushing her breasts out and putting her arms behind her like that!

    It is exhausting for a person without a staff to take care the you and the baby. Hoda is no Wonder Woman ! She couldn’t even handle a small dog without sending it away for training! And who knows what she did to it now and how she got rid of it! Sorry; I find her annoying and not too bright and her fake smiling and cackling just are ridiculous ! The show is barely watchable anymore !

    Gag! It’s nauseating! But Hoda has a way of making it seem like she is the only person on earth whoever did something! Shes annoying and the constant deep moments and tearing up, with Jenna sounding like she’s going to cry any minute are sickening. I change the channel much of the time ! You can be all over philosophical when you have a staff taking care of your babies if you are tired or busy !

    Well, if you have nannies who wake up in the middle of the night so you can sleep while they take care of your babies , and you get driven to work. And then have someone doing your hair, make up and wardrobe, and then finish by 11 or 12, and can nap if you are tired and someone else cooks and cleans up after dinner . Then you can have fun taking baby pictures and vacation shots for Instagram, and you can be 50 and be just fine !

    Buddy vs. Duff

    I have a very different view of what went on with this show, and what is going on the FN on general . I think all of the drama and conflict was encouraged and staged . I think that both Buddy and Duff were literally playing roles for this reality show . Even the commercials were presented as if this competition was some kind of a boxing match . I have seen both Buddy and Duff on other shows, and neither seems as extreme as they were portrayed on this show . This competition was nothing more than a long infomercial for both contestant’s new shows . I wouldn’t put put it past the producers to stage the whole “Buddy walks out “ segment. I saw Buddy and Duff on a talk show together , and they were both joking and did not know the results of the competition, or said they didn’t , even though they had finished taping ! I noticed that Geoff and Ralph are friends on Instagram or twitter . I also noticed when Buddy and Duff were caught in candid moments and not when they were making comments for the audience, they looked friendly to each other, and also were admiring each other ‘s work when caught on camera. I just do not it past FN to exploit the talent to crest drama . In this era of reality tv, which is mostly not real, they have to compete for ratings , and it worked ! This show was their highest rated show! Now if Buddy and Duff were nice to each other and acted like the contestants on the other baking shows, there would not be the buzz and the drama on Twitter . I do think they overplayed Buddy’s tough guy persona and then regretted it. And in the end, if Buddy was the big jerk he was on the first episode, there is no way he would have taken losing so well .

    30 Minute Meals

    Yuck! This redo is gross and tacky, just like Rachael is on this show ! RR looks like a mess ! Her hair is all over her face, her weird turtle necks and sleeves that look like they are down to in her hands when she is cooking are weird , and the “just got out of bed disheveled look “, is not what I like to see when someone is cooking . She scratches her head and touches her mouth before handling food. She also got her hands dirty with mixing shrimp in one episode and didn’t wipe her hands when she touched other food ! And don’t get me started on the careless way she doesn’t really wash her hands ! Blech ! i agree that RR seems bitter , cynical and like she didn’t care to do this at all . She also seems like she is just a real jerk to those whom she feels are below her - like the crew on the show! Her nasty comments and snapping at them is a major turn of for me too! Beyond her looks and personality , she looks like she’s not even trying at all. Her “meals” are sloppy one dish monstrosities that are fat laden and filled with too many spices and things like tater tots and frozen fries ! She used to at least make an attempt a making a complete meal, now it’s no way a meal ! And when I saw her use a wine bottle as a rolling pin, it didn’t look cute or clever, it looked like someone who didn’t even bother to tell the crew to make sure she had one to roll out her pizza dough , or didn’t want to bother taking the time to find it in the kitchen ! I am sure the crew had to deal with her snapping at them for that mistake . But why is she not preparing at all before they tape ? The grunting , yelling , and stupid names for everything and to her talking about food with human pronouns like “him, her “. And talking to her food , does make her seem like she took a couple of shots before taping! Hopefully , FN will let this show go away after the 30 days and if they want to hire cooks , they hire more like Molly on Girl Meets Farm snd let RR stay on her talk show !

    Ugh! Hoda ! She’s so darn annoying ! Wtf has happened to her ? Her non stop cackling and almost falling off her chair laughing is ridiculous ! Is this the real Hoda ? Or are TPTB encouraging Hoda to act like an idiot?

    Very true ! There is a local weather man that people my city mock for being fat all the time . In fact when they started weather reports from a rooftop, people mocked him and made jokes about him being too heavy for the roof . I happened to see him in person in a restaurant, he did not look fat , he looked like a normal sized man! People who saw him out in real life were shocked he was not at all heavy , but tv made him look very large . Having been video taped for a broadcasting class when college, when I was at a normal weight, I was shocked at how I looked ! I am large breasted and have large hips , but I was a size 5-7 at the time ! I looked stocky and was not happy ! I then wished I was that “fat” when I gained a lot of weight in my 30’s! I guess I generally don’t care for people being mocked for appearance. It reminds me of girls in middle school and high school at times . i don’t want to be a downer , I just think some of the mocking of David and his “chins” or Carolyn’s butt picture are not things I enjoy as far as snarking . If my children talked about others like that , I would have a long talk with them , but that is just me .

    I agree. I think the wrong size is a different thing, but there are many comments and pictures about their bodies speci I am not sure they is true, and I don’t think David is a glutton .

    The wrong size is a different issue , I notice that , but there are comments about pictures of her body and comments about her weight specifically.

    ITA ! I was obese , and I can’t say getting thinner made me happy ! I feel better as far as mobility and I like wearing clothing that I didn’t feel comfortable in when I was obese , but I am still overweight, just by 25lbs, not by 125lbs like before ! I read this forum , and it is fun , but I have to say the screenshots of Carolyn and David where their weight is the issue, are not what I enjoy/ If anyone has ever been on TV, you would feel fat or look fat unless you are a size small or ever smaller than that . Sometimes the comments about David , Carolyn , or Jane, wirh regard to shape or weight are shocking to me, since I doubt most people are size small or extra small , and it’s hard to look great on tv, even at a normal weight. Carolyn can be annoying , but she’s probaly happy to be alive after surviving cancer . And David seems happy . And being thin doesn’t guarantee health. My mom and best friend were health fanatics and both died of cancer at young ages . I learned that unless you do like yourself, it is hard to lose weight and keep it off . I used to loath myself when I was obese and go on crazy diets and gain it back . When I finally liked myself while obese, I took care of myself much more and lost weight . I am not model thin, I’m sure I’d look huge on fat on tv, but I am finally feeling healthy . Now, are there other things to snark about with regard to the hosts? I think so . But snarking about looks , especially weight isn’t something I feel good about , since I know how hard it is to be overweight and obese .
