Star Jones Fired

Celebrity Apprentice is one of my favorite shows. It's fascinating to see how such famous and influential people deal with each other during their ambitious race to the "WINNER" proclamation of Donald Trump.

Sunday night's show was full of entertainment as usual. At one point, I began to wonder if Meatloaf was channeling Gary Bussey, but it turned out okay.

Later, when Meatloaf and Star Jones got into it, I became less of a fan of Star Jones and I wasn't a huge fan to begin with. While she is a woman of great accomplishments, she is also the first person to tell you about them. It was obvious that she was throwing Meatloaf under the bus from the beginning of that episode.

But why?

At first, I thought it was a deliberate act to try to get rid of him, but as she refused to continue her debate with him when it became uncomfortable - as the truth usually is - I began to wonder if there was a deeper psychological reason for her actions.

Star has taken the bull by the horns performing her "branding" tasks with little or no input from others on the team - until Meatloaf.

Why did she suddenly stop?

Perhaps she has some emotional scars that cause her to shutdown in the presence of influential men. Possibly someone in authority caused her a lot of pain in her childhood.

Whatever the reason, Star Jones was fired, mostly because several people had complained of her manipulation and back-stabbing tactics, which no good leader should have.

If you haven't watched the show, this is a great season to watch, even though it's almost over. I think it would be a great tool for anyone wanting to learn how the rich and famous (and powerful) conduct themselves in business matters.

It's definitely a hoot if you have an interest in psychology.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.

How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
