She has spent her adult life in an America where black people are not compelled to be subservient to whites. She has made her fortune in an America where most people, white as well as black, consider warm-and-fuzzy nostalgia for the days of slavery and Jim Crow to be highly offensive."

    Its pretty much stolen her thunder considering she probably thought she was going to be the center of attention having just given birth and all.

    Mind you, I do wish happiness and health to both the new mommy and newborn but am not the slightest disappointed over not having the Kardashians shoved down our proverbial throats this past couple of weeks.

    We are rapidly running out of places to purchase any/all things with PD's moniker on them . . . .

    From NBC New with Brian Williams Facebook page (just moments ago): JUST IN: J.C. Penney has decided to stop selling Paula Deen branded merchandise

    and this one (from about 5 hours ago) Sears says it will "phase out" all products tied to the Paula Deen brand

    She has a new spin. In an interview she said that was "their" getaway house. They go there to relax and get away from it all. Bruce sometimes stays an extra day to play with his heliocopters. Yuh.

    I am moving on from Paula. Trouble is, there is not much going on out there in celeb world. It is time for a shocking break up or pairing.

    Here at FORT & the media in general has quit talking about Kim Kardashian!

    Paula's South trumped Kim and Kanye's North.

    This thread is acts odd on my computer. It appears that it is time to archive this and start a new one. It is up to 111 pages and so wide I have to slide back and forth to read it. Anyone else?

    Alec Baldwin went crazy on twitter. I ,cant recall what I read now.
    I don't believe Kris, I think Bruce is tired of all the BS

    Nope, it's fine for me
