"Let Them Eat Cake"

Now, why is it when Kim Kardashian gets freebie's and money, for her wedding it's O.K? I remember not so long ago WHEN Star Jones did that for her wedding and she was dogged in the press. There seems to be a double standard in Hollywood or is it just me. Star was dogged for being cheap and ostentatious. Kim got $10,000.00 worth of invitations free received $50,000.00 to host her bachelorette party at Tao and a cake estimated at $6,000.00 from Hansen's Cakes. These are just a few of the perks this reality star received not to mention the 1.5 million plus from people magazine for the pictures of her wedding and engagement ring. Kim Kardashhian is only a reality star that had a sex tape who's mother married an athlete. Star Jones is a Lawyer turned talk show host, brains and talent. It really troubles me to think that Star's skin was not light enough and she was not thin enough for Hollywood or the media. Star flaunted her "fabulosity" around and Hollywood could not take her. I'm getting very tired of the American press and society wanting black people to be so humble and subservient. Kim with her 2.5 million 65 carat Diamond Lorraine Schwartz headpiece, her $2 million Schwartz engagement ring, 20.5 carat diamond on her right hand, her 28 carat earring worth $5 million. If this isn't ostentatious I don't know what is! And, now the press wants to talk about Obama going to Martha's Vineyard for his vacation, with the economy in the state that it's in. It really feels like this country has come a long way and has even further to go. Kim could have gotten the entire country out of debt with what she did or did not spend on her wedding. It just reminds me of Marie Antoinette and "Let them Eat Cake". Hollywood and the press needs to wake up! The American people are smarter than that.
Yes, I said it!

Success!!

I was reading in the New York Post on July 27th. 2011 that Alexander McQueen, the fashion designer killed himself and Jeret "Speedy" Peterson an Olympic silver medalist was found dead in an apparent suicide. And, that yesterday was Amy Whinehouse's funeral ceremony. It struck me as I was reading this that all three of these people were very successful in their careers but not in life. This is why I have always been thankful for my parents and my life. I have said so many times that I'm naturally happy and that's what gives me strength when times are tough. And, I give all thanks to my parents. From my up bringing or genetics whichever you pick the credit goes to my parents. I feel very thankful, for my life. And, this is success!! I believe that people need to re-evaluate what they think success is, and I've always felt successful because OF MY LIFE and not for the things that I've done or acquired!!!!
Thanks, Mom & Dad!!!
May the Force be with you!
