  1. Season 15 Discussion

    It's been a few years, but Jennifer has been fairly consistent on the R&B charts, and had a few R&B hits as recently as 2014. She's not really a pop/Billboard type of artist. Similar to Fantasia. She's consistently been on the R&B charts and has had multiple albums. But she's not a pop singer, so if you don't listen to R&B you may think she's not successful. I think Kennedy will do well outside the Voice without winning. I think the days of these type of shows creating Kelly Clarkson/Carrie Underwood type of superstars is over. But I do think Kennedy will be able to make a nice living singing/Broadway/acting if that is what she wants to do with her life.

    It was President Andrew Johnson. Came up during a topic about impeachment.

    Oh how I hope someone brings that up the next time she reads Joy's name from the blue card.... If I heard her correctly NutMeg said something along the lines of comedians and pundits are known for pushing boundaries and should have some leeway in the things they say. Ummm..... comedians and pundits are 2 totally different things. Have different purposes and different expectations. And again using her logic.....Joy Reid is cool right?

    They generally exclude her from any interview with a Black guest where race might be a topic. Which then annoys me that ABC employ's someone for a talk show who they don't trust in certain interview situations.

    She offered Aaron money, but he declined. He said something along the lines of if his father didn’t accept him while living he didn’t want his money after death. The IRS debt was about $2 million I thought. That would leave her some money to fund her project that Rochelle previously funded.

    Right Crenshaw won a district than leans republican (partly due to gerrymandering), He was heavily favored in the polls. We didn’t need MM to tell us he would win. MM interview with Gillebrand was laughable. You can’t ask a question and then not let her answer because she doesn’t fall in the silly trap you tried to set. Also if she’s going to quote stats as the basis of a question, she needs to cite the source. Her blue card is not a sufficient source.

    Joy typically does a better job of moderating on Fridays. Got me wondering if producers have asked her to be softer with MM, since she's (justifiably) gotten pretty sharp with MM a few times these past couple of weeks. Or better yet, Joy is purposely letting MM self destruct on air. MM is coming off very manic. Giving what's she's been dealing with, I'm wondering if their are some meds that need adjusting going on. The most qualified person is rarely nominated. MM knows that. The decision is always political. I'm not sure why MM thinks that nominating someone because they appeal to a specific region of the country or a specific socio-economic group is fine and not identity politics. But nominating someone because they appeal to a specific gender, sexual identity, or race is somehow bad.

    Right.... Joy shutting MM's overtalking butt down with "Listen Can I speak?".... as MM muttered "I didn't do anything".... was a thing of beauty. Keep pushing back Joy!!! What I saw was Oprah using the southern accent for dramatic effect when telling the story about a man being refused the right to vote. She was dramatizing the voice of the people telling him he couldn't vote. When she spoke as herself, she sounded like her normal Oprah self. Abby using John McCain's funeral as an example of Presidents being friends and "why can't we all get along" was interesting. Especially since Trump was purposely not invited to the funeral. It basically bolstered Joy's point, that it isn't politics that divide us, it's Trump.

    Agreed. But is very common for politicians to visit churches as part of their campaign. Every politician running for office right now will be in at least one church this weekend campaigning. Don't get all the emphasis on Randall's finances. It was already established that he was very successful at his job and it paid a lot of money. It's not unreasonable at all that he could take a year or 2 off working and be just fine. He has investments, including the building he purchased, so he still has income. But really the show is pretty loosey goosey on the financial status of all of the big 3. Kate/Toby mentioned the cost of IVF but it didn't appear to be a hardship for them, even though Kate can barely cover the gas bill. Even before Toby, Kate was only partly employed, but she managed to maintain a home, travel, etc. Kevin, should be the richest of them all, but don't really portray him to be particularly rich.

    I'm guessing something happened during their producer's meeting before the show that had MM and Joy on edge like that. (Hence the "I thought we were talking about civility and not guns" snit) MM was extremely unprofessional and downright rude. Hopefully she be reprimanded and forced to apologize on air tomorrow. There was a far better way to make her point about sticking on topic besides acting like a rude, brat. Say what you want about Abby, but she handled changing the topic perfectly. MM can not complain that people are concerned she's an alcoholic when she tells pretty much daily stories about being drunk, or prideful stories about the antics of her drunken relatives. McCain family dinners must be some pretty wild events. I took Whoopi interrupting Sunny with "Actor!!!" as more as a complement to Daniel Ratcliffe (saying he's a really good trained actor), than anything derogatory towards Sunny. But then again I generally see the Whoopi/Sunny comments differently than others.

    What some found contrived, others found to be a fairly real and common Black American experience. I could relate, and appreciated seeing it.
  12. S03.E05: Toby

    I think her point was she was concerned about the interracial aspect of her relationship with Kevin. I automatically understood why she needed the pillowcase. Most Black men would have too. As she mentioned she had not seriosly dated interacially, having to explain something others would automatically understand was new to her. It can also be tiring especially if the other person is not receptive (for example try to explain away the rude cashier’s behavior). Glad she realized Kevin was worth it, and started to share. As selfish as young and teenaged Kevin has been portrayed, I don’t think we’ve ever seen him deal with issues surrounding Randall and racism. It’s mainly been the parents who noticed it. They didn’t show Kevin’s reaction to the racist prom date dad. The only time I can think of him mentioning race was young Kevin complaining about being the forgotten kid because Kate was fat and Randall was too black. As Randall was not one to complain especially to Kevin, Kevin may very well been living in his own bubble and not that nuanced in the racist side eye.

    Native Americans also owned slaves, so there were more interaction than one might expect. Many of my own family from Oklahoma were descendants of slaves owned by Creek tribe. At the end of the Civil War those slaves were made citizens of the tribes which owned them, If Ted Cruz took an ancestry test, her very well could be part Native American via his Cuban background, interesting enough. Most Cubans are some mix of Spanish, African, and the Native people on the island. Most commercial DNA tests, do not test individual tribe DNA, instead they lump indigenous North and South American natives into one group. Which is why I didn't understand why the Cherokee Nation spoke out. She never said she was a member of their tribe, just that a distant relative was.

    MM proudly saying, "I like politics because there are winners and losers", just didn't sit right with me. Because in the scenario she was speaking of, half of the American people are the losers, and that's not something to be proud of.

    I believe she discusses that part of her life in great detail in her books. So I'd first read those for context before judging her . However, if Ms. Angelou hid that information from the world, but then proceeded to present herself to the world as pious woman or took up a platform against sex workers or sexual freedom, then yes, we should hold her past against her. Ms. Angelou shared a good part of her life the good and bad, to show how people can persevere and rise above their past. I need Yvette to become a permanent guest host (if that such a thing). Like everytime someone goes on vacay she gets first dibs on guest hosting. I'm no MM fan at all, But the grief stuff doesn't really bother me.....yet. It's still new, and it's her first week back to work. Now if she's still mentioning her grief daily 3-6 months from now, hopefully her "friends" at the show would tell her take a break and get more counseling
