    The Rivers' seemed to have selective memory when it comes to their own flaws, but they have an elephant's memory when it comes to anything that someone else did - even if they have to make it up.
    If memory serves, my recollection is that Melissa directed the live segment of the video presentation - the choreographed dancing, Joan on stage, etc. The video vignettes was a source of tension between her and the project leader at the time and little of Melissa's idea was used.

    Sorry? I don't quite get how this quote relates to my post.

    Her maiden name is Lederer, just like Dear Abby and Ann Landers. That's a Jewish name and she would definitely be at least half Jewish. She and brother Howard graduated from Columbia University, the "Jewish Ivy League Univeristy." Both are listed among Jewish sports figures.

    I enjoy poker (all card playing really) and I tend to look up players I like, especially since so many of them have brilliant minds. Chris Ferguson has a PhD in Computer Science from UCLA and studied game theory. Andy Bloch was one the M.I.T students who part of the card counting group that the movie 21 starring Kevin Spacy was based on. I just find this all fascinating since it's come so far from our original concept of poker players we saw in the old west movies.

    I was never a fan of Joan Rivers, and certainly haven't become one after her shenanigans on this show.

    Like most "reality" shows, it is easier to assume that they are all playing roles. But Joan, Melissa, Clint, Dennis...their portrayals of themselves or characters do not entertain me, but inspire me to fast-forward or channel surf. Annie is slightly more tolerable, but not much.

    I'm watching for Jesse.
    The Bachelor/Bachelorette series is a soap opera with unskilled actors, bad writing, and beautiful locations...it even edits the real moon!

    The vignettes were Melissa's basic ideas because Claudia (the pm) gave into her. She did direct the live segment after Brande stepped down - Melissa said she took it over because it wasn't going well, Claudia said she let Melissa do it to shut her up.

    And I don't consider an attempt to manipulate someone outside the fair bounds of this game. Not that ME is that hard to manipulate. If you keep in mind that she only goes in one direction--pettiness, jealousy, insecurity, boastfulness, etc.

    Shame he wasn't there for the "I resent thats" in the past.

    But to her face, they talk about money raising as the issue.


    Time for Joan to FREAK OUT!!! Whoooooo! This ought to be entertaining. THAT will make better TV than Annie vs. Melissa, which has been getting boring.

    Did Melissa just yell out "whore"? Way to go out with CLASS.

    Oh here goes Joan. "Stupid blonde"? Come on. Not so stupid if she got out of that boardroom alive. "Money with blood"? Wow.

    And we see the REAL ME-lissa at the end here. Trump, Ivanka and Cramer CRINGE in the boardroom in absolute terror.
