    When I was in Egypt on vacation everyone in my group got along brilliantly. One of the women I would chat with about fashion and fun run costumes, etc., didn't think much of it. The last day of the trip, her travel companion (both their husbands didn't want to go to Egypt) says "You don't know who she is, do you?" Turns out she was a big wig at Vogue. As in worked with Anna Wintour. She is retired now. She is currently in San Diego for few days, she messaged me and we are going to dinner on Saturday night. Hope to sneak in a few Vogue questions

    My father passed away suddenly from a brain aneurysm in 2002, I took care of most of the arrangements as my mother and sisters were just incapable of handling their grief and I was the only one that held it together. About 2 months after he passed away I had a visit from him. Sounds surreal but I was in bed, finally crying my heart out over losing him, and I felt a heavy weight on top of me, so heavy I couldn't move, I opened my eyes and flexed my fingers to make sure I wasn't dreaming. As soon as I realized it was my dad, the weight became comforting and I knew he was trying to tell me everything would be alright and he was in a good place. I fell asleep with him close to me. It happened again about 2 weeks later, I think he was just checking to make sure I was fine. It's never happened after those two "visits" but I really believe it was him. Hope you found the same comfort. Lori

    This is the kind of BS that makes me loathe her. Is she trying to appeal to the masses - “you know girlfriend, I can’t get Brad to pay for half of the private jet?”. My single mom friends would love to be self sufficient and not worry about money from their ex, just to have one less thing to stress about. Some of my single mom friends, have to support their kids all by themselves, and still make sure the Dad sees the kids regularly. And they choose between food and clothes. Angie has no clue. She is worth $160M to his $240M. What, in all that is holy, does she need any money from him for? I understand “the principle thing” but seriously, I am not even sure why there is any sort of support at all. It ALMOST makes me like the second most pretentious celebrity female and her “uncoupling”. With all the celebrity divorces, have we ever heard this much about custody and support? No, because they all realize their kids and matters related to their kids should be kept private. Just like Brad is doing.... Note to self: stay off this thread Bran, it just makes you really really mad 😂

    I am not sure I could even date a Skeeter.... But she was married to Narvel forever, so I cannot decide if that is a move in the right or wrong direction 😂

    No, but it sounds like a lot of people were pouring drinks after Anna meetings

    Had dinner with her last night and she talked a bit about it. She asked if I had seen Devil Wears Prada (ha ha ha, of course haven’t we all??) and she said that Streep you could still see a sliver of a good/kind person in there somewhere. With Anna there was none. Her office was right near Anna’s and she poured a lot of people a drink after meeting with Anna. She was on the editorial side of things. She did say Anna was good at her job and had a great eye but as brutal as they say, if not more so.

    I have no answers, but just wanted to say that I’m sorry you are dealing with this. What an awful situation.

    Because all they see are indictments/convictions on "unrelated" charges that don't contain the words collusion, conspiracy and are not capable of understanding the long process involved. That plus the whole, once you're in a cult, its hard to admit it and seek help.

    Agreed. I am SO sick of that fucking man. And the twat half-sister. They are only embarrassing themselves, because I (and most everyone else) don't believe a word that comes out of their mouths. I couldn't imagine doing that to my own daughter. Shameless.

    Thank you for sharing, Lori. I believe it was your father, too -- I'm glad you were able to receive some comfort. Hugs ❤️

    and what about a mother of means -- That comment makes no sense -- Child support is not optional in California, but it is determined by a computer program which takes into account the income and expenses of BOTH parties and the percentage of custodial time -- if she already has a support order in place and given her assumed income she should be able to make it works. Those kids don't need three/four houses or to go off jet setting just because she is bored. She wants it to be voluntarily because she doesn't want to have to put in writing what the money is for and where her money goes (up her nose or in her arm). Guilting someone into coughing up the money after you just put him through shit is probably not the way to go. I am sure that this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he has obviously moved on.

    Not even bothering to post this in the BI forum; it's clearly about Clooney and apparently there was a second scooter that dodged the accident: There would have been a ton of questions about why this A+ list mostly movie actor was out with this 15 year old boy. Luckily the boy had a quicker reaction time. It also wouldn't shock me if we find out someone involved was the parent of the 15 year old. Lots of questions that will never be answered unless someone in the mess, decides to speak.

    We're fine - we're a little north of the Triangle, so our worst weather was Sunday/Monday - I think we had about 5" rain total so nothing compared to others. I couldn't drive to work on Monday due to flooded roads (I work in Durham, it was raining blindingly hard at 7am, after I hit the 4th flooded road, I turned around and drove back home and worked from home, just like Thurs & Friday when the campus was closed but nothing happened....Slow moving storm!) We had power flicker a couple times, and I lost internet (satellite) for an hour or so, but otherwise no problems. Glad you're ok! My in-laws primary residence is Oak Island, and of course, they can't get back there now to see the damages. I think the bridge re-opened yesterday, but I don't think there's a route from here to there open yet.... We were on vacation and flying home on Sept 12 (last Wed) so our flight was full of people on standby trying to get back before the storm hit. My in-laws told us the grocery stores near us were sold out, so we stopped at a store on the way home from airport and they had been restocked - had plenty of milk & eggs. But no bread 😉 So no Hurricane French Toast for us. Was able to do the rest of a quick "I've been gone 2 weeks and my fridge is empty" shopping though. Floyd was my first major storm in NC, 1999. And it was a very wet storm, I thought it was the worst thing I'd ever seen. This is worse.

    I tuned out after the opening was just SNL people over and over. I love that they own their jokes no matter what, but they were super bad. Hoya is outside Raleigh, who I think faired okay, maybe some power outages. I am outside Charlotte and except for Sunday when all three main arteries out of my neighborhood were flooded, we were fine. My Husband works during the week in Fayetteville and his apt was evacuated. It is devastating in Wilmington and the southeastern part of the State.

    Last night was a real nail biter! Sad to see Brett go -- I really, really liked him. At the beginning of the summer I thought he'd be a douche, but I'm surprised by how much I came to enjoy him. Poor JC looked gutted. And Julie signing off as Julie Chen Moonves ..... ok then!

    TMZ The Academy of Motion Picture Arts says it's reconsidering rolling out a new "popular" category for the Oscars, and putting the move on ice for 2019 ... and probably forever. The AMPA said Thursday that the bemoaned category of "Best Achievement in Popular Film" merits further study ... and it won't be happening for the 2019 award show. As you'll recall ... the backlash to the announcement last month was swift and fierce, with cinephiles calling it the death of the Academy Awards and simply a way to pander to ratings. The Academy's CEO, Dawn Hudson, says ... "There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognize the need for further discussion with our members." She continued, "We have made changes to the Oscars over the years—including this year—and we will continue to evolve while also respecting the incredible legacy of the last 90 years." We'll take this a step further and predict this means the "popular" category will never see the light of day, especially after people stop talking about it when the 2019 show's over. Once the buzz dies down, our money's on the Academy never moving to reinstate it. In other words -- sorry, superhero movies ... you'll have to fight for a Best Picture nod like everyone else.

    That sucks. You could go with a mobile device management plan, like simpleMDM. https://simplemdm.com/features/ I'll think about other options this weekend and talk to my business team on Monday. There might be something we aren't thinking of that she wouldn't see. I know a few of the trackers can hide the app altogether as well, but they are pricey. Or a family share Apple ID account so you could look in find my iPhone. Just create him a new Apple ID and link it to yours, log him out of the old and into the new, and don't tell her. She might not realize. She sounds like a terrible person, btw.

    That's because that flat-footed, festering sore only likes those who weren't captured -- don't forget. I have no idea how we ended up here, but here we are. (And by here, I mean....this reality.) Love Maddow too, by the way ❤️

    The chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, was granted legal immunity in exchange for his testimony in front of a grand jury as part of the Michael Cohen probe. And the dominoes keep falling..... What did he say about "flipping"?...something about outlawing it?

    The only really glitchy thing I’ve noticed is that it no longer takes you directly to the last (newest) post in an unread thread. Instead it just takes you to the first page of the thread.

    I feel like we're seeing the same headlines days later and fear that an obituary is not far off. Heather is clearly a troubled soul. I sincerely hope that she finds peace and healing.
