Omarosa is suing LaToya Jackson

Omarosa comes across as unsympathetic because she appears to be cutthroat. I have never seen her as an angry woman. She just doesn't evoke sympathy. LaToya is out there but I'm guessing there are people who probably feel more sympathy for her based on the portrayal of Joe Cola as a monster.

In any case, LaToya should stop and apologize for continuing to repeat that which is unsubstantiated and move on. A nasty fight isn't going to help either one of them--no matter how much attention they garner.

Those videos scare me. O would slay Wendy without breaking a sweat, and she is right. The moment a black woman shows signs of intelligence and speaks her mind with that intelligence, she is an angry black woman. There are many things you can say about O, but ABW is not one of them. The woman is smart and is about business. If many could get away with it, FLOTUS would be an ABW as well as Condi! Whereas, you have the Beyonce's, Rihanna's and Nikkis who skeeve their way through life but will never be referred to as angry.

Do yo thang O!

And to be honest, if I were LJ, I'd, in a round about way, apologize because O will make good on that promise! LaToya cannot handle the chit that O will bring down on her!

I've never cared for O really one way or the other. I don't see how here being cutthroat makes her unsympathetic when her fiancé dies tho.

Not an O fan, but I respect the hell out of an educated, intelligent black woman no matter which arena she chooses. Hell, I'm a Wendy fan, but she is no match for O! Plain and simple!

I found her unsympathetic before then. Her fiance dying is irrelevant to that. I can sympathize with her loss without finding her sympathetic overall though.

People have the right to grieve however they choose but I'm guessing her appearance on this show isn't softening a whole lot of those who see her that way either. It's not her fault. it's just how our society operates.

I have no respect for her at all. She's a negative, dark force. It's a shame, because she IS intelligent and beautiful, but her personality makes her ugly as a human being, and all that potential is just wasted. She's not famous, she's INFAMOUS, and her angry, combative nature is a negative stereotype for black women. This woman deserves no respect, IMO...she's no example. Oprah is. Many think she is lying about her engagement.

I've never heard of anyone disputing their engagement but you can't say he never loved her.

My opinion of Omarosa was formed based on the first season of The Apprentice. All I know is I didn't like how she basically threw Kwame under the bus. But it paid off for her since she got a Trump sponsored reality dating show and is still included.

Omarosa is not a negative stereotype period and she certainly is not a negative stereotype of or for black women. Nor is Oprah some grand role model either. I'll just wind down before I get wound up for no good reason.unsure.png

Her and Trump are both media whores. That's why they get along so well. He loves a sh!t stirrer. And she is a negative sterotype, IMO. I pity her, actually... considering her first marriage failed, and both her father and brother were murdered, I think she is just filled with anger and resentment at life, and doens't know where to put it. The reason many people DO think she is lying is because the engagement was conveniently "Secret" until he died. Someone such as her, that runs to the media at every opporotunity would have never kept that a secret. Many people think this is a play to gain as much of his estate as possible. I think she's a bloodsucker. A leech.

And I tell you, for someone who is supposed to be so intelligent, she certainly doesn't realize that lawsuit is baseless, and she has NO CHANCE of winning. There is always an attorney that will take your case, and take your money... even though he knows deep down that it's a case he can't win.

I don't really care whether she was engaged or not or even whether she's lying about it. If she is then that's totally on her. Claiming to be engaged isn't going to help her gain money from MDC's estate if he didn't write her into it and they were never legally married. Anyway, that's between her and his relatives.

While I agree with you that she loves media attention, unlike you I don't see her as angry. Maybe her past makes her more relentless....I have no idea of the impact. But she doesn't come across as either angry or bitter to me.

What makes her a negative stereotype? She's a flawed human being as we all are. Maybe you can help me understand what you mean.

It perpetuates the idea that a black woman cannot make it in the business world on her intelligence, merits, and professionalism alone. She has to be cut throat and play dirty to make it, and she has to appeal to the lowest common denominator to be entertaining on a reality show.

And you're telling me that this only applies to black women?

Actually, no. It just does in this instance. It applies to all women. Claudia lays out the reasoning here in the video below.

SNAP!!!!

Notice Claudia's picture was taken from the BACK of the church, just the flowers and picture of him on the big screen, no picture of the body in the casket.. nothing inappropriate. I'm tellin you, Omarosa is nothing but a thieving, two faced, triflin bitch!

Just because Claudia Jordan explained their pact doesn't make it a special instance. That's a personal thing between them--as a result she got played and Omarosa may have been wrong but based on what she said in that video, I have no sympathy for Claudia Jordan either.

I get that when it comes to race in this society that black people are treated as some different species and that some black people believe they are different from other people on the basis of race and that some black people don't.

But I think it's more important what you actually believe and not what someone else says.

if you see Lindsay Lohan's actions as detrimental to or reflective of white women, then I get your Omarosa stance. If you don't then....

    • I never heard that either. I loved GEN. I thought they had a real winner on their hands. I was even encouraged that they had a 3-yr. contract! Apparently someone at NBC was a big fan of theirs. Then after 2 yrs., they said the ratings weren't growing enough.
    • In addition to the four clip shows I counted previously, The Golden Girls had nine flashback episodes (when they moved in, unusual places they've slept, times they celebrated birthdays, moneymaking schemes, when they visited a therapist, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, times they got ready for a springtime party and bad dates). The flashback episodes have some of the show's best moments, but I've often wondered if they were used as a way to include scenes/jokes that just couldn't sustain their own episode.
