    That is interesting and curious. I wonder if he felt he was "nothing". After reading your post, I did a quick search on Lou's early life and found this article.

    The My Hero Project - Lou Ferrigno

    Lou was born on November 9, 1951, in Brooklyn, New York. Lou suffered an ear infection, which was not treated well. He lost 85% of his hearing ability, which caused him to become deaf. At school or other places he was called “dumb Louie” as a kid. During his childhood many people would pick on Lou, and he went through merciless taunts and beatings. Lou was upset because he knew that he was mostly deaf, but this did not lead him to live a disadvantaged life.
    Lisa Lampanelli tweeted this: “Lou isn’t deaf. His ears are just stupider than the rest of him.” .. <-- that is supposed to be funny?! I sort of recognized her but had never seen her act or knew her name. I hope she crawls back under the rock she came from, that is, if the rock will have her. She must have her fans, but I don't get that kind of humor.

    People such as Lou, from middle-class backgrounds, can have a variety of problems, but he didn't come 'from nothing.'

    Maybe from the people he's been around in his adult life (i.e., television/movie types) that's the way it seems from his perspective. A police lieutenant doesn't make that much money - lower middle to middle class maybe? Middle class is a life of constant struggle to maintain, but you get little assistance if any.

    Because, other than being a towering bully, she was not equipped to deal with her castmates and compete. She had no one to ask for donations, as I recall, and I am sure she was embarrassed.

    I had her on mute most of the time.

    I think Lisa's main gig is participating in and hosting "Roasts"... The kind of humor that is really cutting and personal, tasteless & tacky stuff... I've seen her doing a lot of them and she is really good at those things because she is so hateful.

    Re: Celebrity Apprentice 2/26 episode

    I had never heard of Lisa before this show either...but last week (?) I saw her on Bethanny's show as a friend. They had lunch together and she seemed perfectly nice there...albeit a little tasteless in some of her statements, to me personally. So I think when watching Celeb Apprentice as PM, I felt she was over the top in her anger but that was all. I usually like sarcastic humor...probably because I'm guilty of it also.
    Now, after reading that comment about Lou's hearing impairment, my opinion of her has definitely changed...for the worse. Sorry, but sometimes trying to be funny at the expense of someone else (and as something that obviously still bothers Lou a lot) is inexcusable. It's fine at a celebrity roast, it's expected but this was uncalled for.
