I like her and am happy she’s speaking out for the preservation of democracy,  but am not convinced she’s Mensa material .

You might be giving too much credit to "Mensa material."  I took a practice exam when I was a teenager and it wasn't difficult at all.  My youngest sister, a Mensan, took the actual test and had the same feeling.  We did, however, love tests and always did better than we expected on those general knowledge tests at school and in the days of "employment tests."  (Mensa considers an IQ in the 130s a qualifier.)

But…how do you know Sunny’s IQ? Is there real evidence of her alleged high intelligence?

I don't know her IQ but I think her education history is a hint.  She wasn't "connected" when she was admitted to Notre Dame Law School with stringent requirements ... and she graduated.  Being quick-witted or having quick recall (Jeopardy) isn't related to results of an IQ test.

It was also an insult to single women.  Not all single women are on the prowl looking for a man.  Sunny also didn't like the idea of a married man tutoring college students.  She reminds me of Elisabeth Hasselbeck losing her shit over her husband maybe seeing a Playboy.  She said something like why would he look at that when he has me.

So true. People are always suspicious of single women. A lot of us aren't even looking, and those who are looking, oftentimes have totally different taste. There was a guy I once worked with whose wife thought everyone in the office wanted. None of us had any interest. He was not a physically attractive person and his personality was even worse.  

What if there's a young married man who's awesome at math or English? Tutoring is honest work that can make pretty decent money. I wonder how Sunny would feel about married men being teachers period. That seems unrealistic. What did Elisabeth say about Playboy?

I'm in between an anything goes type and a Sunny. I think if you're someone who's constantly jealous, the problem is probably you. I'll never forget the throwing the cake out story. But women are expected to sometimes have no boundaries. I don't think a married man should have a female best friend (other than his wife). But do I believe in acquaintances, work friends, casual friends with the opposite sex. Just have boundaries.

I wouldn't be comfortable with my husband going to a strip club, and I even find places like Hooters gross. But I understand noticing beautiful people out there. I know I do. I just don't gawk or make a fuss. With porn, it's like, does he occasionally look or does he prefer porn to his partner? I'm not checking a man's internet history, but I've heard stories where their partner is right there, and the guy is more interested in porn. That is no bueno.

See, I don’t have a problem with a best friend who isn’t his wife. Probably because most of the friends I had in high school and college were guys. Too much cattiness with girls and well, the guys just saw me as one of the guys, I guess. Not a single one hit on me or saw me as a female, if that makes sense. 🤷‍♀️

When her husband was on the New York Giants she told a story about Playboy or something similar being in the locker room and she was adamant that Tim would never look at any porn because he didn't need to.

Of course. We all have different experiences that shape our views. I haven't had the best luck with straight male friends. I have one who is truly like a brother to me, but we grew up together from the time we were babies. Maybe because my vibe and interests are more traditionally feminine, men have a harder time seeing me as one of the guys? I've never been into sports or more stereotypically male activities. I prefer dresses and skirts to pants. Maybe Sunny's also had experiences more like mine, so she's distrusting of men?

Bless her little heart, but that is naive. Hopefully Tim is respectful enough not to look with her knowledge. I get it though. Most of us don't love for our partners to look at other women, especially perfect looking women willing to do anything. I used to not understand why porn would bother other women so much. The argument is that regular sex with a regular woman is no longer very enticing. Maybe Elisabeth thinks that, or maybe she thinks as someone who's conventionally attractive, he shouldn't even want to look at other women.

I dunno. I was a “girly-girl” but I also loved to go rock climbing, back packing, etc. Who knows? But I think I posted on another thread that all ROTC guys took me under their wing so no one messes with me. Probably because I wasn’t afraid to take risks. I don’t know if that made me not worth looking at as someone to date or whatever. Anyway many moons ago.

Topic? I agree and am starting to 🙄🙄🙄 at all the frowny-frowns pouting that Sunny is doing at things she considers “beneath” her or disagrees with. Just disagree without all the tics.

There was also a 'throwing/smashing something on the highway' story.  I can't recall the details, but it had to do with jealousy over Manny.

It was a phone.

You know if it was a man who acted like Sunny does with her jealousy we would consider it red flag behavior.

And what kind of parents (usually a mother) brings up a daughter to think like that ???   ME-ME-ME-ME.  She was probably "a joy" to live with.

Really, LimeStation...I've been amazed for years at the power she seems to have on this show, at Disney, and ABC.  She's Disney's darling.  WHY?  Every star that comes to the show bows and drools to speak to her.  She must be a fabulous person when she's away from lights and cameras.  I'm sure most connected with the show are afraid to give her any constructive comments (I dare not write "criticism").  The show would be better (way better) without her.  I don't care if mine is the minority opinion (just like Whoopi).

I ask myself the exact same thing! The ass-kissing goes to a nuclear level. Joe Koy had to be the worst!!!! So nauseating I had to change the channel. They behave like she's Judy Dench and Helen Mirren rolled into one. And even the other women, the way they cow tow to her is so cringe-inducing! Especially Sara - she's always quoting her. She's an Oscar winner....not a Nobel Prize!!

She must wield some amazing power with Disney. I only wish I knew what that was. It's like, let's put the person in who puts zero time/effort into how she looks and we will have her be the moderator and the so-called face of the show!!! 

ABC's got a really low bar.

And also who does the least research and preparation.

YEAH!   She has no power over any of them; probably doesn't even know who most of them are, yet she enjoys allthe sucking up in the world!

I can almost accept the kowtowing on the show.  They've seen what happens when SHE decides she wants someone gone.  Joy doesn't do it...but Sunny (for me) is the most embarrassing.  She doesn't have good control of her facial expressions and she appears SO desprate when doing her boot-licking, gushing--and yes--ass-kissing!  I'm giving Alyssa some time...but, Alyssa!  DON'T CAVE!!

Also, Sunny, speaking of your facial expressions--watch Sara (today) when she announces "View Your Deal," easygoing, enthusiastic, and seems to really like most of the products.  You FORCE yourself into a smile so fake sometimes it looks like a grimace.  If you don't FEEL enthusiastic, don't try to force it.  Just announce the things, knowing that some of the viewers REALLY WILL like the items.
