The Real Riell

Saw Oprah totally flumoxed by the John Edwards baby mama! Interesting. This is one
tough cookie and I am not going to make a moral judgement. Strictly talking interview style here...she had Oprah boxed off in more ways than one. She uses all the words Oprah likes ...'your truth'...and other terms for self actualization and every place Oprah went with questions, she turned it around and maintained control.
Very interesting. Never saw Oprah quite this way before. The one fact that did jump out at me was that she never used birthcontrol...'whatever happened would happen' was her position. So to me that means...she decided to have his baby and she did!Maybe I should make a moral judgement on that part! And what the hell was he thinking????

Jack Kevorkian

WOW!!! Just saw the HBO movie You Dont Know Jack..about the infamous
Dr. Death. Amazing! As a piece of art it was fabulous...Al Pacino has
got to be one of the greatest actors alive. The Midwest accent went
a little Fargo..but other than that...brilliant performance. Barry
Levinson is a great director and it was beautifully done. As a man,
Dr. K is my hero! I never really knew a lot about him, other than I
agreed with his position and believe in assisted suicide. He was
quite an interesting and idiocyncratic fellow as well. I think he
is brave beyond belief and this is worth watching. Get it on
HBO on demand if you didn't see it.

Brett Michaels

Ok, now you'll know that all I do is watch reality shows...but I got hooked on
Rock of Love which was rock star Brett Michaels from Poison, dating a bunch
of skanky chicks. Dont ask why. I don't know myself. But I liked him. He is
kind of sweet. Now he's on the Celebrity Apprentice and turns out to be a
father, a diabetic, a lovely sensitive guy. Honestly. So I was so sad to
hear he had an aneurism. He was operated on for appendicitis so maybe it
was related to that.Also I was at the Tony Awards when he hit his head
on the stage. Maybe that started it. Brett, thinking about you.
I want him to be well!
