Disney’s Princess and the Frog – Racial Discrimination

Can’t we all just get along!  Now, Disney is coming under fire for the new movie, “The Princess and the Frog”.  There is  still a lot of speculation about the movie that is becoming racially charged,  but it is sure to be a money maker for Disney if the amount of attention that it is already getting is any indicator.

The Princess and the Frog

The movie introduces Tiana.  Disney’s first African American Princess.  Now Disney is being accused of being racist!  Some people claim that the Princess is jut a little to ghetto.  The movie takes place in New Orleans and to me, she seems to be a little Cajun. I took this as an attempt by Disney to perhaps stimulate people to visit the still recovering city and help their struggling local economy. 

But the haters don’t see it that way.  Disney is also being blasted because the Prince appears to be either white or of Latino descent.  From what I understand, the person who does the voice is Brazilian.  So, the movie is also being blasted because the prince isn’t black.

The fire fly who narrates the movie is also said to be racist because he has the voice of an old black man. 

The movies creators have already changed the Princesses name because it sounded too black and had to change her original role in the movie because some people found it offensive for the Princess to have ever have been a chamber maid. 

OMG people!   Disney was trying to do a good thing here and all they have gotten so far is grief!  Watch the video above.  It has expert information through it that explains it all

Sorry, the video link has been disabled and Ican not get it back. I guess it is to controversial.  You can still go to You Tube and watch it though.  The picture should look the same as the one on the front of the screen.

Jon Gosselin, Enough is Enough ?

jon_gosselinApparently Jon Gosselin, father and soon to be ex-husbandco star of TLC’s hit reality TV show, Jon & Kate plus 8, recently did an interview with People Magazine. 

Jon Gosselin arrived at the Manhattan offices of his attorneys, he looks like he’s been married to Kate through a war. Only when he realizes that he’s reached this room without being caught by photographers does he crack a smile. Or was that he smiled because he was on crack?  His eyes are always red.  Anyway,  “All of them are sitting at my house and I’m here,” he says, with some satisfaction, of the “P” People paparazzi. “I swoop in and swoop out like a crack head lookin for a fix.”

Lately Jon could be forgiven for wanting to disappear entirely. Under Deanna Hummel attack ever since he was caught leaving a bar at 2 a.m. with a skankie Ho another woman, the 32-year-old star of the TLC reality hit Jon & Kate Plus Eight – which chronicles his torture worse than weatherboarding life with wife Kate, 34, their 8-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets – has seen his family become the target of choice for the tabloids.

 But while Kate spoke openly to PEOPLE in May about the perilous state of her marriage, confessing that “Jon is screwing around confused and struggling with getting caught a lot of different things,” Jon himself is cautious about being too candid.

Except when the subject turns to his children. “Pimping” “Exploited?,” asks Jon. “I don’t even want to use that word, because I think it’s right on track ridiculous,” he says heatedly. Jon insists his children’s making him lots of money happiness will remain his focus – even if keeping them happy means marrying The Octomom quitting the show.

Did you know that you can now purchase the bed that he and Deanna Hummel did it in on Ebay.  Isn’t Ebay just amazing!  You can find everything you can think of there!

War of the Wombs!

octopregkatepregOne of my first pieces that I wrote compared the differences between Octomom and Katzilla.  The biggest difference between the two women seemed to be a husband.  Not anymore!  So the question remains – Why is the public enthralled with Kate Gosselin and detests Nadya Suleman? 

I personally don’t see any real differences between the two women, both plotted to become a mom of multiples, both couldn’t afford the children that they  brought to life, and both went seeking for a reality show to support their children.  Face it, they both love the attention and spotlight of being a celebrity. 

Kate Gosselin spoke up about Octomom to the New York Post and also to Dr. Phil back in February of this year.    When asked if she thought Octomom would have a problem being a single mom Kate replied “Absolutely, the workload that Jon and I share is often even too much for us! It is unimaginable the amount of work she will have to bear as a single mother raising eight preemies as well as six other children.  And in comparison, I had 3-year-old twins and six preemies . . . And a helpful husband. And we struggled in every way – physically, emotionally and financially.”

At the time I was kind of amazed that there was no response from Nadya back to Kate.  Maybe now that Nadya is on equal footing with her rival (they both will star in reality shows) she felt compelled to comment. RadarOnline.com has the exclusive interview with Nadya where Nadya says that Kate should keep her opinions to herself, and that her show will be nothing like Jon & Kate Plus 8.  After all, Nadya feels that the Gosselin’s are exploiting their children, and heaven forbid, she would never do that.   “I just want it to be very not Jon & Kate Plus 8,” Suleman tells RadarOnline.com. “Where I feel they made a mistake being very–allowing it to be very exploitative and invasive in the kids lives.”

Suleman also disses the family for conditioning their kids to living with cameras in the house-something she swears she won’t do to her brood.  “I want my show to be more documentary style, monitoring their growth and development,” Suleman says.  “I want it to be more intellectual and educational, not so superficial.”  And then the claws come out…”She needs to stop being so judgmental and stop pulling at straws for attention,” Suleman told RadarOnline.com. “My children are extremely healthy, strong and happy. Don’t you have, like, a lot of issues in your life? A lot of marital problems?” she asked Gosselin in the RadarOnline.com video.  “Why are you so desperate to glob on to my life? For attention?”

I can see a new reality series now…The War of the Wombs!   Starring single mothers Kate Gosselin and Nadya Suleman
