    I think that when people like Oprah, Bethenny, Jerry Seinfield, Dr. Phil, etc. make it big, it can be easy for them to say that anyone can realize their dreams with hardwork and dedication. Well, some people work very hard their entire lives and don't get their dreams. It's true. A lot of it comes down to skill of course, personality and being at the right place at the right time. Some call it luck or fate. Regardless of the success some of these big names achieve, I know they are no smarter and have worked no harder than many other people in this world, but I'm okay with their success.

    I have often heard that the true sign of a successful person is how they make others feel special. I agree.

    That was very well articulated Debb and thank you for those words of wisdom. I couldn't agree with you more

    Seinfeld is a self-righteous, entitled jerk.........his statements he made on a British program badmouthing Prince William and Kate -- "they're nothing special" and their wedding would be a "circus." That makes him UNsuccessful.

    I am very disappointed in the kind of person Jerry Seinfeld has been turning into --- but then, that is unfortunately very common with people who 'make it big' and become so full of themselves that they also become "self-righteous entitled jerks." Somehow, I don't see that happening with Bethenny, because I think she will always be very, very grateful for her success ---- especially because she worked so hard for it.

    I think Bethenny worked hard for her success, too, and it took her almost 20 years to achieve. Yes, she's had some big breaks but she has always had goals and made good decisions along the way to achieve them. I love her spirit!

    Re: Bethenny Ever After

    I have nothing against Bethenny. It wasn't my intention to lump her in with a disliked person. I didn't know anything about Jerry Seinfield and this latest controversy. I was just pulling names out of the air for people who made it big and bascially don't have to work anymore. Sorry......LOL How odd.

    I didn't think you were disparraging Bethenny, Debb. And your point is well taken: it takes both hard work, and a lot of good fortune smiling upon you to become successful and wealthy.

    My definition of success has nothing to do with money. It's loving what you do. It's getting out of bed and looking forward to getting to work. It's laughing at the fact you'd probably do it for free.

    That's a biggie. I have heard people in show biz say that. I think I have heard Dick Van Dyke, Joan Rivers make that comment. I made a big mistake and didn't go into journalism. In retrospect, I think I would have loved to be a tv or movie producer. I like communications, news, education and music. I didn't realize how picking a career just because you might be good at it, doesn't mean it will make you happy. Still, I guess all jobs can be stressful or frustrating at times.

    Re: Bethenny Ever After

    Hmmmmmmmmm..okay I do see your point. I DO love my job. I recently received a job offer that would have almost doubled my salary & I declined it. The benefits of my current position just outweighed the other job.

    Re: Bethenny Ever After

    Has this season ended? I've been indisposed for the past two weeks with my son. My first stop is with Bethenny...last episode I saw was the conclusion of Skating w/the Stars.

    In fact, I've not watched ANY of the Houswives either. I've got some serious catching up to do! Don't know where to start.
