It’s official: Paula Abdul leaves American Idol

Paula AbdulPaula Abdul has officially confirmed that she won’t be returning to American Idol this season. “With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to Idol,” she wrote on her Twitter page. “I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day one become an international phenomenon. What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me. I do, without any doubt, have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all.” American Idol auditions begin tomorrow in Denver for the ninth season, with the show returning to television in January. Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi will all return as judges. No reason was given for Paula’s departure.

    no, not Paula. I wish Kara or Randy were leaving instead

  2. brainchild • August 5, 2009 @ 10:17 AM

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. How could she leave, she was my favorite judge on that show. I knew that when they introduced kara, they were trying to weave paula out. She will be missed by everyone who watchs the show.

  3. Jo-Anne • August 5, 2009 @ 10:39 AM

    sorry, brainchild, don’t count me in the group of “undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me”….

  4. burst your bubble • August 5, 2009 @ 12:06 PM

    Although I don’t think she is great as a judge, I would much rather see Randy leave. I can listen (and tune out) Paula’s babble, but Randy’s “vocabulary” is grating. And you are right brainchild, it was obvious they were “easing” Kara into a role to replace Paula.

  5. tributegirl • August 5, 2009 @ 1:57 PM

    Ug, I can’t stand Kara, wish it was her that was leaving.

  6. mandee • August 5, 2009 @ 3:58 PM

    i really like paula, but she isnt a good judge. she basically always says the same things to everyone, she is always trying too hard to be nice about everything. randy always uses the same phrase over and over again and it makes me want to smack him, but i like him as well. i dont like kara. i think simon is the only ACTUAL judge on the show lol. i like paulas personality and i like her voice.

  7. ke • August 5, 2009 @ 7:09 PM

    it just really wouldn’t be the same without her. this sucks!!

  8. Cheezynsleazy • August 6, 2009 @ 12:44 AM

    Kara’s pretty hot so’s Paula. She can bring her booze over to my place anytime ya know what I mean. I bet she gets good pain meds too after hurting her leg and back. Even better.

  9. mandee • August 6, 2009 @ 1:15 AM

    sure sounds to me like you take enough pills now “Cheez”

  10. aprilshowers • August 6, 2009 @ 2:08 AM

    Paula was suffering from a rare disease (resulting from her NECK surgeries which had plates fused in) called R.S.D. (reflex sympathetic dystrophy). If you google it, you will see that it is a VERY painful disease as I know, because I also suffer from it, (my plates where but on my spine though, not my neck) and the pain from this disease is 24/7 NON STOP!! Just for her to be able to do what she did everyday is a wonder in itself and probably is the reason why she sounded “loopy” at times, (which is another reason I liked her as sometimes she made NO sense and I could not help but laugh, but understood why) as I would suspect that she would have to take something to be able to sit there that long plus also do her dancing etc.

    I also heard the reason she left has to do with the fact that “So You Think You Can Dance” (also produced by Nigel from “American Idol”) offered her a spot on their panel as she was always a dancer FIRST and a singer second, so don’t be surprised if you see her in Season 7 (as Season 6 has already been chosen and will air in the fall.)

    I will miss Paula as she was always managed to find something positive to say to the singers, especially if they were having a BAD night, whereas Kara just grates me the wrong way!! Paula also had a BIG heart and was kind to the singers, but Simon is the only one that always spoke his mind and most times, he was right (so Paula did not make the BEST judge, but was the kindest!)

    When I heard the song that Kara wrote to be the first single, I was like Simon after I heard it and rolled my eyes as I felt SO bad for Kris (and Adam) to have to sing this song (thank God no radio station has played it) and HOPEFULLY next year they will go back to their contest where songs are submitted from the public and the best one is chosen for the winner because I thought her song was BAD (and most of the other ones each year have sold very well!!)

  11. aprilshowers • August 6, 2009 @ 2:40 AM

    Sorry for the typo, I wrote: “where but on my spine”, meant to say “were PUT on my spine”, LOL!!

  12. demigod • August 6, 2009 @ 5:03 AM

    I’m not big on the series, but what I think would be a great idea is to get a show going with live bands, instead of just singers. Think it would be more entertaining showcasing original acts.

  13. aprilshowers • August 6, 2009 @ 7:12 AM

    I agree demigod, as I find it better now that they are allowed to play instruments, so why not allow bands as well? I guess it is because it is called “American Idol” and not “Band”, perhaps they should think of doing a separate show for bands??

  14. mandee • August 6, 2009 @ 6:41 PM

    im not even sure it should be called american idol. with how amazing adam was and how he was on magazine covers etc and he still didnt win, it was pretty clear its not who we vote for that wins. it SHOULD be called “the person we felt sorry for because they were second rate so we gave them a record deal to try to lift their spirits”.

  15. Cheezynsleazy • August 6, 2009 @ 10:04 PM

    i read Paulas leavin cause she has issues about pay and there bringin in another hottie, Victoria Beckham for at least 2 shows.

  16. aprilshowers • August 6, 2009 @ 10:41 PM

    Adam was on magazine covers as he had a HUGE personality, and I for one, did think his lower registry was very good, but when he went for those HIGH notes, God help us!! Talk about screaming, a lot of people felt the same way, and that is obviously one of the reasons Kris won!! I also think Kris was an excellent singer and more versatile, whereas with Adam you knew (and would just wait) for his “screaming” notes to come every song, too bad as I believe that is what COULD have cost him the win. Kris’s voice will sell a lot of records as his appeal is more for the masses and he was very endearing to the public, whereas Adam always had SHOCK value!! Adam will do well onstage (Broadway) or with a hard rock or heavy metal band. Kris got my votes all the time as he could definitely switch it up!!

  17. mandee • August 7, 2009 @ 2:08 AM

    i disagree. adam was amazing. yes he did yell too much, but they would help him fix that if they gave him a record deal. either way, he got a record deal and i see him going further in life than kris. i like kris as a person but i dont think he is good enough to be this years american idol. adam had way more fans than kris did, he had more people cheering for him, he was on magazines because he is talented. it was totally a fixed contest.

  18. Mary • August 7, 2009 @ 2:09 AM

    Like everyone says Simon is the best judge on the show, but he does have an acid tongue sometimes and you have to feel for the contestants.As for Kara she also grates on my nerves and should be shown the door.I’m sorry to hear Paula is leaving instead of Kara.

  19. aprilshowers • August 7, 2009 @ 7:44 AM

    I agree Mary!! Don’t like Kara at all and Simon is very brash but honest to a fault. I’ll miss Paula as well.

    As far as Adam had the most fans, if he had, he would have won!! Adam would never change his screaming as that his way of singing and he will not change that, that is why a hard rock band approached him for a potential hook up, because he can scream!! Windows breaking scream! I bet the bank he’ll be screaming in his first album as well, whereas Kris will use his beautiful diverse voice and I’ll buy that over screeching anyday!!

    Just because you are on the cover of a magazine does not make you more talented, he made most covers because he was controversial (gay), whereas Kris was the quiet one and he didn’t win because it was fixed, he won because the majority of the public voted for him! Most people who are on the cover are NOT always there because they are great, most times, something bad that they have done, or bad gossip puts them there!!

    American Idol is a competition where everyone gets voted off by the public, or wins by the public, so Kris won fair and square!!

  20. mandee • August 7, 2009 @ 2:19 PM

    adam wasnt on the cover of all those magazines because he was gay, if that were true he would have come out a long time ago. and, you are basically agreeing with me in some way because you are saying adam is great for rock and roll. he is, hes brilliant. so why would that make him lose the show? just because he screams and is better suited for rock and roll? its not called americans best pop artist or best r and b artist, its called american idol. i think that its a shame that allison was voted off and didnt make it to the series finale, allison and adam were the best. kris’ voice just wasnt that good. the only song i liked by him was heartless, but i still didnt like his voice at all. you watch, adam will sell more records and be the one that stays in the spotlight for years to come, kris will probably do what the rest did…make one album and then youll never hear from him again.

  21. Jo-Anne • August 7, 2009 @ 4:43 PM

    well, aprilshowers, this is one area where I’ll have to agree with mandee completely re Adam’s talent, however I am with you with regards to the annoying Kara…

    I felt very strongly Adam was miles ahead of Kris in sheer singing talent. Even his “screaming” was fitting for his song choices and didn’t ever bother me, in fact I felt he was an amazing emotional performer with a huge range of talent, he was far from boring, I so looked forward to each of his performances.

    Kris, on the other hand, was like a comfortable rerun of a predictable sitcom…you could pretty well count on him returning every week and delivering consistent okay tunes…

    to me, Kris painted in subtle pastels…Adam was ablaze with neon all the way…

  22. FUMJA • August 7, 2009 @ 7:43 PM

    MAYBE THATS THE WAY IT IS TO YOU MANDEE BUT AMERICA VOTED AND THEY LIKE KRIS BETTER. JUST BECAUSE YOU LIKE ADAM BETTER AND HE DIDN’T WIN DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT WAS ALL RIGGED. CLAY AIKEN SOLD MORE CD’S THAN RUEBEN STUDDARD TOO SO WHAT’S YOUR POINT? MORE PEOPLE VOTED FOR KRIS, MAYBE MORE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN OFF THEIR A$$ES AND VOTED FOR ADAM IF THEY WANTED HIM TO WIN INSTEAD OF WHINING CONSTANTLY WHAT’S DONE IS DONE. SUCK IT UP.

  23. aprilshowers • August 7, 2009 @ 8:31 PM

    Hey Jo-Anne,

    Hey, everyone has their own tastes and I did say that I thought he had a GREAT lower registry and was gifted enough to belong on Broadway, but I just could not handle all the screeching that’s all, but never said he was boring, just prefer Kris’s voice!! TO each his own, right?

    Are you having trouble getting into the 2 Jackson’s blogs (the one where the title was are the kids 100%^ biologically his, and also the manslaughter one? The reason I ask is becasue I wanted to post on each of them, that Jermaine is going to appear on Larry King Live tonight at 9 p.m. so I thought I’d share the info for all the M.J. lovers??!! I could be having computer problems so will you try and access them and let me know please if they are closed?

    Thanks Jo-Anne!!

  24. Jo-Anne • August 7, 2009 @ 8:51 PM

    no worries April, I’m not one of those who “wah wah you like her better than me wah wah you always disagree with me wah wah your her new bff wah wah” haha we can actually have different opinions on a celebrity gossip blog and get on it with it – imagine that! shocking!

    yes, I got on the one site…there is no rhyme or reason sometimes on here how it works…inconsistent…

    saw the Jermain Jackson preview, thanks!

  25. aprilshowers • August 7, 2009 @ 9:17 PM

    Yeah, I just tried again after I made this post and it worked on both, so I let them know.

    I agree about you and me as even if we disagree, we are civil, reason why, because we have respect for each other, WOW, what a concept, right, LOL??!! You tried and be civil to a certain someone on here and another blog and their response is still condescending, so why try right? As I said to each his own. What do you think of the new poster’s name? I can think of a few words that each letter stands for, can’t you? I guess some people just never give up and it is nice to know that you and I are above it!! YOU ROCK GIRLFRIEND!!!

    Talk to you later (and by the way, I also could not wait to hear what song Adam would sing the next week and SCREECH his way through, ha, ha, ha , ha, LOL, but true!!!) But I do TRULY believe that his voice is strong enough for Broadway and think he belongs there as that was also brought up on Idol as well, since he has such a HUGE personality and a voice that could easily be heard without a microphone!! I just loved it when he sang softly though without the screaming notes, and if he did an album without the screaming, I’d buy it for sure, as I NEVER said he had a horrible voice, but not everyone on here READS all the posts COMPLETELY!!

    Talk to you later my friend, got to go lie down as I overdid it today (shopping as it’s my hubby’s b-day tomorrow) and the pain is a bit much right now (what’s new, LOL!!) Have a great weekend (in case I do not get the chance to talk to you again before it’s over as my hubby’s also has the week off, so hopefully we will do my favorite thing and go to the drive in!! Don’t you love drive-in’s? They are so old fashioned and you can say or do what you want without anyone kicking your chair, LOL!! Caio for now!!

  26. aprilshowers • August 7, 2009 @ 9:20 PM

    Did you say B L O G Jo-Anne in your last post? You must be me posing as you, ha, ha, ha, LOL!!

  27. Jo-Anne • August 7, 2009 @ 9:30 PM

    that’s very funny Aprilshowers!

    take care, have a great week(end) and talk soon…

  28. demigod • August 7, 2009 @ 9:44 PM

    april, Adam’s ‘screams’ are rock wails..it’s part of his style yes, and his range exceeds Kris’. Of course Kris won, he’s more mainstream and that’s America.

  29. mandee • August 7, 2009 @ 10:47 PM

    joanne, i wish i could have explained the adam/kris thing as well as you did. good job.

    fum stop being so rude. i have my opinion, and you have yours. i CANT vote for adam, im canadian. and if i could, well i dont have a phone so thats not exactly my fault. also, there were a LOT more people behind adam than behind kris, he ONLY won because everyone was accusing adam of being gay, was mad that he wore makeup and nail polish AND IT WAS RIGGED. at&t wasnt it? that allowed people to use their new texting feature for free if they were to vote for kris? and i dont believe for one split second that they didnt use the votes they got from that “kris” party.

    aprilshowers “but not everyone on here READS all the posts COMPLETELY!!” i READ your comment, but i disagreed. how does that mean i didnt completely read it?

  30. aprilshowers • August 8, 2009 @ 12:41 AM

    I agree demigod, totally, mainstream America, couldn;t have said it better!!

    But calling it fixed because he didn’t win, is silly. Perhaps everyone thought FOR SURE he’d win, so less people thought he needed votes and that is why he lost?

    It was explained in the papers, on CNN and other television stations that the AT&T advantage that Kris supposedly had, that Adam also had, it was just not brought up to the forefront right away. It cannot be rigged, their guidelines are TOO strict!!

    Also remember that the 3rd place finisher was Danny Gokey and that shows you that 2 out of the top 3 were softer and less hard rock and roller than Adam was, so when Danny left, it is surmised that his voters jumped on the Kris bandwagon, hence Kris wins by votes, not by an AT&T problem that was already explained (even by Ryan Secreast) that At&t problem was at one of Kris’s gathering places and that Adam’s fans also had the same opportunity at his gatherings, (AT&T even commented on it themselves,) so you just have to get over it and give up this idea that because Adam did not win, that it was fixed. Adam sexual orientation was NOT KNOWN FOR SURE until AFTER American Idol in ONE of his magazine interviews, when he finally came “out” and then did so with a guy in public after he LOST American Idol, so Adam being GAY cannot be the reason either as during “Idol” it was only heresay!!

    American Idol HAS TO BE FAIR, one night they actually came back the next night admitting a phone number for one of the contestants had been incorrect, therefore no one would be going home that week and that the voting would be done again and they gave out the CORRECT phone numbers and the right person went home. This should show you that they go to any extent to make sure that no one is getting an advantage etc. Just get over it, he’s a good singer and will do well, but he did not win!!

  31. FUMJA • August 8, 2009 @ 1:06 AM

    HOW DO YOU KNOW MORE PEOPLE LIKED ADAM THEN KRIS? SO YOUR SAYING AMERICA DISCRIMENATED AGAINST ADAM B/C HES GAY AND WORE NAIL POLISH AND MAKEUP?

  32. mandee • August 8, 2009 @ 2:51 AM

    aprilshowers on August 8, 2009 12:41 AM calling MY OPINION on whether or not AI was rigged silly sure is a GREAT way to make friends. i have my opinion, and you have yours. did you see me anywhere saying your opinion is stupid, wrong, silly, lame etc? no, because i respect your right to an opinion. you go on and on with joanne about how the reason the 2 of you get along so great is because you respect her right to an opinion, then turn around and call MY opinion silly? hmmm, sounds a bit “hypocritical” no?

    “so you just have to get over it and give up this idea that because Adam did not win, that it was fixed.” ??? i do NOT have to “get over” anything. its MY OPINION, did you miss that fact? obviously, if at&t rigged it, and AI allowed it, everyone involved WOULD definitely try to cover it up. so they can say what they want, but like i said, i dont believe it.

    fum, in my opinion, yes. i do believe he was discriminated against and for no good reason. he has amazing talent, an amazing voice, he is definitely going to be a rock star. most of humanity can not accept or deal with the fact that some people are gay. i, personally, think the intolerance towards people that are attracted to the same sex is disgusting and inhumane. but i do, personally believe that this was the reason adam didnt win (along with the at&t bs).

  33. Jo-Anne • August 8, 2009 @ 10:24 AM

    America often gets it wrong in a big way…just look at “losers” Daughtry and Hudson….and if you must, look at Taylor Hicks again (but turn off the sound)….

  34. mandee • August 8, 2009 @ 6:02 PM

    wonder how long until your “friend” has a problem with the way you are talking about the other idols…

  35. Jo-Anne • August 8, 2009 @ 6:08 PM

    hahahah mandee, agree! I’ve got a couple of monkeys on my back right now can’t seem to shake loose – have any spare bananas?

  36. aprilshowers • August 8, 2009 @ 7:47 PM

    Sorry but Jo-Anne and I never were rude to each other and that is why we can disagree and laugh about it, right Jo-Anne? Also, you are accusing me of things I do not say, and like I told Jo-Anne, I’m no longer talking or referring to any negative comments made to me, so that is why I’m not going to continue this with you any longer, especially when I tried to make peace with you after you apologized to me, then you came back after a few people said I was trying to sway your opinion, and you lashed out at me again, so I give up and it was not my fault, sorry, you took back what you said, not me. How long until my friend has a problem with me, NEVER WILL as we already discussed it and we can disagree and remain friendly as we’ve NEVER disrespected each other, BIG DIFFERENCE!!

    BTW Jo-Anne, I agree with your last post. Sometimes the fans get it wrong for sure, i.e. Taylor Hicks (have you ever seen a CD or heard one of his, NOT ME!!) And Daughtry is doing AWESOME, so it just goes to show you that even if you finish first, it does not necessarily mean you will sell more than someone who came in 2nd or 4th etc. Also Jo-Anne, as you know, I’ll NEVER be one of those monkeys, LOL!!

    P.S. Sorry if there are any typo’s, as in a rush right now to check it again, LOL!!

  37. Jo-Anne • August 8, 2009 @ 8:41 PM

    we are good, for sure, aprilshowers….I love Daughtry, bought his recent CD, love it, I was supposed to see him live last year when he opened for Bon Jovi but I ended up in Myrtle Beach that week instead! Hicks was such a long shot, I thought but then look what happened!!!

    hey, maybe he’ll open for Bon Jovi next time around – yeah, right, hahaha!!!

  38. mandee • August 9, 2009 @ 1:44 AM

    i thought taylor hicks was a woman?

  39. Jo-Anne • August 9, 2009 @ 8:23 AM

    hahaha mandee!!! Hicks is indeed a guy, he’s had some success since Idol, but limited compared to many of the others. He stands out as one, for me, that shouldn’t have claimed that prestigious number one spot…

    it would have been “interesting” to have him pitted against Adam for that final showdown…

  40. aprilshowers • August 9, 2009 @ 7:36 PM

    Hey Jo-Anne,

    Don’t you find it a bit strange that someone that kept slamming you is now trying VERY HARD to get on your good side????? Please be careful as we all know who is who and who could be “who” and I just don’t want you to end up being bashed yet again from the same person because I care!!

    I also LOVE Daughtry and he reminds me (personality wise) of Kris Allen as he is so soft spoken and kind and then he opens his mouth and great tunes come out!! Gotta love the guy eh? Pretty humble and does not look like stardom has changed him very much from the guy singing at Idol, don’t you think? I’ve NEVER stopped liking him!! Classic example of stardom (when NOT finishing first) Jennifer Hudson, especially when Simon said she would never make it, BOY, did I love the way he had to eat his words when she won the GRAMMY and the ACADEMY AWARD in the same year (and more in that year, but those are the BIG ones that really count!!)

    I agree with you also about Taylor, I don’t know what the fans were thinking, but perhaps there was not a lot to choose from that year, LOL!! I mean I liked his voice, but NOT enough to make him the winner!! (Who was he up against, so you remember?)

  41. aprilshowers • August 11, 2009 @ 12:42 AM

    It has nothing to do with being mean spirited, it is simple computer “lingo” for screaming at someone, (typing all in capitals,) anyone who knows IM and is computer savvy knows that, so it is just a fact!! I only address FUMJA because Nancy(oops, sorry) I mean FUMJA is the only one who is doing it on a consistent basis, no matter who he/she addresses and that is just plain RUDE!! (That nail polish remark by FUMJA was directed to you BTW, as I neer even brought it up!!)

    I believe the case is now closed!!

  42. mandee • August 11, 2009 @ 2:30 AM

    yeah i was wondering what the deal was with her accusing me of being nancy, i only accused you 😛 . i know im not nancy, me and nancy have even posted at the same time before, same with me and tributegirl, and tributegirl and nancy. i dont know if any of the new ones are nancy, and for all we know if one is, it COULD be aprilshowers. i know that others jump in every now and then and try to cause a war with me, i often wonder if its coincidence, then i remember, i dont really care! lol. as far as im concerned, fighting online with strangers is a great stress reliever, and helps me vent without taking it out on people in my life that mean the most to me. also, most of the time its actually just hilarious.

  43. mlm • August 11, 2009 @ 9:31 AM

    come on you guys, do you really have no idea who is behind all this crap? has the name ‘Gina’ not crossed any of your minds? notice ‘anon’ inblue has not been on in ages? Gina never leaves these blogs, its her dummies.

  44. mandee • August 11, 2009 @ 3:07 PM

    well, now YOURE starting to sound like nancy. i think perhaps tribute has banned nancy and anon and that would explain it, unless youre nancy and know for a FACT that theres no possible way you are the others, well then you dont really have a say in this conversation.

  45. mandee • August 11, 2009 @ 8:30 PM

    well, demigod still posts off and on, i think maybe he/she is just busy.

  46. tributegirl • August 12, 2009 @ 4:20 PM

    Wow! I’ve been away far too long!
    Anyway, mandee and Jo-anne, totally agree with you on Adam & Kris re talent, and on the whole Kara/Paula issue. But I don’t think Adam lost because of his sexuality, actually I know a lot of people are still very against it, but it seems like more of society is accepting it all the time. But I heard that there was a “Kris party”, that didn’t actually involve him, just a large number of fans, and someone showed them all how to text a vote and it would count as 10 votes? Can’t remember where I heard that, does anyone else remember that?

  47. April • August 14, 2009 @ 1:33 AM

    Hey Jo-Anne,

    I thought since you and I like Daughtry, you might like to check out this link as there is a band who thinks they resemble.wait for it.. another of your favouritesBON JOVI!!

    Hope you like it!! Enjoy!

    No more showers as easier for you to write April, okay?

  48. Jo-Anne • August 14, 2009 @ 1:07 PM

    aok april, thanks! I’m on it!

    don’t buy that, gypsy cuz Tribute are the only ones who can remove posts as well, so too much of a coincidence…

  49. April • August 14, 2009 @ 8:13 PM

    Hi Jo-Anne,

    Has “gypsy” disappeared as I do not see where you are referring to her post UNLESS Tribute removed it as they said we have to use our names, and I had sent you the same “DAUGHTRY” post 4 times but it was under “aprilshowers” so they did not let it go through, so I gather her name is NOT “gypsy” and I also KNOW NOW, that we were right ALL ALONG about “Shauna, Yerraynus, FUMJA” not being who they said they were and probably being who we thought all along??!! Nice to have it all sorted out though, don’t you agree, so that everyone can’t accuse us anymore of being them??

    Listen, I have no idea where you live, but the way I came to these blogs was because I enter their contests all the time, and also enter a ton more and win a lot!! I won 2 passes to “Heritage Place” in the Muskoka’s and if I read somewhere, you said you had kids(?) and I’m sure they would love it and I’m allowed to give them to whoever I want, so would you be interested (or know someone that might be) as I do not want to waste them??

    Let me know, okay girlfriend?

    Thanks,
    April

  50. gypsy • August 14, 2009 @ 8:16 PM

    I see your right, they removed my comment.If anyone is interested i read on another site that Paula has been offered a job to be a judge on Australia’s Idol.

  51. Kim • August 14, 2009 @ 9:10 PM

    Paula’s been offered a ton of jobs on different shows but my guess is this is a publicity stunt and she’ll be back with American Idol when they cough up a little more cash. And JMO, but I love Kara, she’s my favourite judge. She’s smart, she’s talented (can outsing most of the competitors) and she’s funny (the bikini thing had me laughing out loud).

  52. mandee • August 15, 2009 @ 12:31 PM

    BURN ! lol. i was just thinking of ashton kutcher on that 70s show. good call shauna. wont it be funny if it turns out april is actually nancy? thatd explain why shes sucking up to jo so much.

  53. April • August 15, 2009 @ 2:45 PM

    If that was true I would not be allowed on here MANDEE! I do not suck up to Jo-Anne, we are friends like you and her are, so you just have to get over it!!

  54. mandee • August 15, 2009 @ 3:02 PM

    first of all, april i was bored and wanted to bug you because you were bugging me. second of all, joanne i was only joking about her being nancy anyway lol. i really believe that tribute blocked nancy and thats why we dont see her anymore. third, i agree joanne. they should tell us who they are, obviously they have no intentions to do so.

  55. April • August 15, 2009 @ 3:52 PM

    FOR SOMEONE WHO IS BORED, YOU SURE ARE LETTING IT KNOWN ON EVERY BLOG HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT ME AMKING IT INTO A DOG AND PONY SHOW, SO I DON’T BELIEVE IT, YOU’RE JUST SAYNG IT BECAUSE JO-ANNE IS READING THIS!!

    Sorry Jo-Anne for putting you in between this!!

  56. mandee • August 15, 2009 @ 4:23 PM

    i admitted im bugging you on THIS article only, because this is the article i actually started playing around on and you still took it seriously. i dont kiss up to anyone thanks. i have more class than to be a brown noser.

  57. mandee • August 15, 2009 @ 8:20 PM

    im not sure, but its been a while. i dont know why they would have all of a sudden blocked her bc as far as i can remember we were all getting along before she disappeared? and youre right, they arent too much like nancy, except the rude comments about my life, education and family.

  58. April • August 15, 2009 @ 8:54 PM

    Tribute girl,

    Nice to know you finally agreee that I’m not Nancy, although their is a post here on trhe Brad Pitt blog:

    nancy on August 13, 2009 9:45 PM you guys boo hoo!! The person who has fame and money has beautiful grilfriend and kids he can do and speak whatever he wants to do. dont be jealous!!!

    If you take a look, tell me if you think as it sounds like her?

    As much as you may think that I’m trying to egg on Mandee, simply untrue because if you read my comments on any post (especially TODAY), she follows mine right away with an insult, so check that first please!! I do not like arguments, but like her, I will defend myself, althoguh after today I will no longer address her directly anymore as she still attacks me no matter what and I’m fed up with responding to someone and have her chime in and blast me for it, always finding something she does not like.

  59. Tribute • August 15, 2009 @ 9:43 PM

    No one has ever been banned from posting here. That includes Nancy.

  60. mandee • August 15, 2009 @ 11:37 PM

    thanks tribute. and april, if others can clearly see its you that started the fight, im sure we arent ALL wrong and youre right. if you didnt insult me constantly no matter what (or my comments) then i wouldnt insult you.

  61. April • August 16, 2009 @ 1:19 AM

    Tribute girl has said something, NOT EVERYONE MANDEE, so stop flattering yourself. Check for yourself and see that you are following my every post to anyone I’ve responded to.

  62. April • August 16, 2009 @ 2:18 AM

    BTW Tribute Girl,

    You need to go to all the blogs and see where I have responded to someone ONLY to have Mandee chime in right after I post something and tell me what I MEAN (when I’m the one who wrote it, I think I would know what I meant and also the person before me as I’m nt an idiot) an perhaps you’ll see a pattern that MIGHT surprise you, as it is her that keeps harping on every post I’ve made over the last 2 days, NOT ME, so then I respond to her NONSENSE. Check out other blogs before you make an evaluation based on what she says as it’s not always the truth I’m afraid!!

    And yes, we have been posting FINE you and I and I obviously prefer it that way who wouldn’t) as she is the only one keeps saying something negative about every post I make or simply makes no sense at all in her responses, especially when she tries to tell me what I MEANT, that’s funny as I think I only know what I am talking about as I wrote it, LOL!!

    Hope this helps clear up her misinterpretation of things being said on this website!!

    Bonsoir!!

  63. demigod • August 16, 2009 @ 2:31 AM

    Shauna is Nancy.

  64. Shauna • August 16, 2009 @ 4:00 AM

    try again

  65. demigod • August 16, 2009 @ 4:39 AM

    There’s that same adversarial over-defensive stance. I like your dummying down on the grammar haha..but not quite convincing enough. This charade is gonna be a real challenge for you, taking on a whole new persona. You’ll have to take extreme caution in revealing too much, and watch those Nancyisms. hehe

  66. mandee • August 16, 2009 @ 2:18 PM

    april, its hilarious to me that on several other “blogs” you have claimed how you hate to fight, but you still continue to do so. its also hilarious how on those same “blogs” you carry on about how you arent going to answer me any more, and then you do. and how you say you didnt do anything to start any fight, even when others have clearly stated that they saw you start it. hmmm, wonder why that is? perhaps youre a little bit hungry for attention and drama?

  67. Shauna • August 16, 2009 @ 4:56 PM

    nancys ok and if i sound like her thats ok to but you dont have the right to call me dumb or my comment dumbed down

  68. April • August 16, 2009 @ 6:56 PM

    demigod,

    The “REAL” Nancy is back on the Britney blog and also at me (what’s new) on the Brad Pitt blog!!

  69. mandee • August 16, 2009 @ 7:59 PM

    hey demigod, do you believe what april is telling you? that im nancy? you were here just as long as me and nancy were lol. if anyone can set her straight and explain to her that if she wasnt rude to me i wouldnt be rude to her, and that that doesnt make me nancy, im sure you could.

  70. mandee • August 16, 2009 @ 8:00 PM

    ohh HA HA HA sorry april, i didnt check the other sites. i thought you were hinting I was nancy ! complete misunderstanding on my part and i apologize.

  71. Jo-Anne • August 16, 2009 @ 11:52 PM

    I agree d.g….never left

  72. April • August 17, 2009 @ 1:31 AM

    Mandee,

    I cannot believe I’m saying this, but I accept your apology as you did misread what I said. Thanks!!

  73. April • August 17, 2009 @ 1:33 AM

    Hi Jo-Anne,

    It’s nice to know we weren’t the only ones that felt the same way (as per your 11:52 p.m. post) isn’t it?

  74. Jo-Anne • August 17, 2009 @ 1:48 PM

    d.g. would pick up on this too, for sure, no surprise there, april…

  75. April • August 17, 2009 @ 6:58 PM

    Well Jo,

    I know demigos knows what’s up, thank GOD!!

    Even though she did apologize for a comment she made above with Mandee always commenting on every post I make, and the person who refers to you as a HAG (who is just jealous as that makes you older and wiser Jo, so don’t let that part bother you), now I’m up against the 2 insult queens, should be another freaking ride, even though FUMJA (was already someone we knew) kept going, you can’t win on here!! Any suggestions?

  76. April • August 17, 2009 @ 6:59 PM

    P.S. Jo,
    Meant demigod!!

  77. Jo-Anne • August 17, 2009 @ 7:58 PM

    I think we’ve already won, april….trust me, their wings have been clipped…

  78. mandee • August 17, 2009 @ 8:30 PM

    jo, nothing of mine has been clipped 😛 whatre you talkin about? and april, next time you accept someones apology, try not to be such a b*itch afterwords. it really makes you look like less of a person to say you accept it (still being rude with the “i cant believe im saying this” comment) and then you turn around and in the next comment you make insult the very person that apologized to you and has left you alone for about 24 hours. talk about “CLASS”.

  79. Jo-Anne • August 17, 2009 @ 9:44 PM

    not you, mandee…all good there…

  80. Shauna • August 17, 2009 @ 9:56 PM

    ya joanne what are you talking bout? whos wings are clipped? why are you guys always going on about every one here cant you stop? always so ignorent to every one

  81. tributegirl • August 17, 2009 @ 11:04 PM

    April on August 15, 2009 8:54 PM
    No, april, I don’t believe you are Nancy, also there were a few comments from that nancy, lower case ‘n’, and the name in black, that’s happened before, it’s not her, I don’t know who it is, but I think it’s just someone trying to stir things up.
    And I’m sorry April, but when I go back, I see both you and mandee getting defensive, but you do appear to be the provoker. I’m not trying to insult you here, I’m just telling you how I see it, because maybe others see it the same way, and that would probably be good for you to be aware of. One thing I wonder about though, is you keep saying you aren’t going to reply to mandee anymore, then you do. I’ll bet if you stop, she’ll stop.

    Tribute on August 15, 2009 9:43 PM
    Thanks for letting us know. If I hadn’t just seen some comments from her, I’d be getting worried.

    demigod on August 16, 2009 2:31 AM
    I don’t think so, demigod, because there are a couple August 16 comments you might want to check out, time wise. On the Twilight Saga article, Nancy commented at 4:13, and on the Channing Tatum article, Shauna commented at 4:13. So it has to be two separate people.

  82. mandee • August 17, 2009 @ 11:09 PM

    tg, youre right about her being the provoker and if she stops ill stop. i havent said one word to her since i apologized to her, i was even willing to ignore the snide little “i cant believe im saying this” part of her comment, until she felt the need to drag me into her comment DIRECTLY AFTER accepting my apology. and she calls ME “childish” and says **I** act like a “teenager” HA ! what a laugh.

    also, yes Tribute, thank you for telling us. sorry i didnt say thanks before, i actually forgot to.

  83. April • August 18, 2009 @ 2:02 AM

    The reason I said “I can’t believe I’m saying this”, is because of our past history, I would think you would have understood that comment!! And also saying that you have left me alone for 24 hours is an even bigger joke as you have mentioned me in every post to Tribute Girl, Jo-Anne, Nancy and whoever else you’ve addressed today, so that is a FLAT OUT LIE, reread all your posts and you will see that you have mentioned me!!

    Unfortunately Tribute Girl I do not agree with you about me starting things as everytime I have responded to anyone, she’s come in right after me and stirred things up! And even IF I do not address her, but bring something up that she said,(as she does with me ALL the time) she will address me again, so what does that tell you? No matter if I do or don’t address her, she still responds, so it’s a no win situation I guess, even though I thought it was nice of her to apologize and that is why I said I could not believe I was saying it after everything we’ve been through!!

  84. April • August 18, 2009 @ 2:28 AM

    P.S. Funny I have reread my posts and cannot find where AFTER you apologized that I called you childish or said you were acting like a teenager? Can you?

  85. Shauna • August 18, 2009 @ 2:36 AM

    you guys are you, joanne and demigod saying i am nancy and you’re 6;58 pm comment talkin bout those people. i like a few people here and think its ignorent what you guys keep sayin

  86. Jo-Anne • August 18, 2009 @ 8:45 AM

    give it up Shauna, it’s really really over…

  87. tributegirl • August 18, 2009 @ 10:26 AM

    Shauna, don’t sweat it, you haven’t been on this site for very long, this is how it is on here, if you stick with it, you will probably be accused of many things!

    April, sorry, I don’t want to upset you, just letting you know how it looks to me, because I thought you might like to know how other people are seeing it.

  88. Jo-Anne • August 18, 2009 @ 12:49 PM

    good advice….hahaha…I sure didn’t sweat it (along with many others I can bet) when you and nancy accused of many things…

    good advice!!!

  89. Shauna • August 18, 2009 @ 1:30 PM

    thanks tribute girl ive read on here lots and not used to say any thing. i know more then they think and i know how they dont give any one a chancce. either you’re with them or agaianst them and i dont condone that and they know it. look how she even treets mandee to and now what she say to me. whats really over? shes crazy

  90. April • August 18, 2009 @ 2:16 PM

    Shauna,

    My post on August 17, 2009 6:58 PM does NOT mention you anywhere, the 2 people I was referring to, you were not either of them!! So why are you trying to cause problems? I guess you just want to as I cannot figure you out!

  91. April • August 18, 2009 @ 2:21 PM

    Tribute Girl,

    The only ones it seems to bother are the usual ones, Mandee, Nancy, you and now Shauna!! There are still a lot of others on here, but only you guys seem to say it, so I think I will say as I want considering everyone else does and they don’t seem to care about attacking me either!!

  92. Jo-Anne • August 18, 2009 @ 3:18 PM

    for as person who’s not “used to say anything” shauna, you sure are saying lots…

    add to that your other names…

  93. Jo-Anne • August 18, 2009 @ 3:19 PM

    …and we have ourselves a book…

  94. mandee • August 18, 2009 @ 3:53 PM

    YOU talked about me before i said one word to or about you yesterday april. so no, i wasnt lying when i said i left you alone. “even IF I do not address her, but bring something up that she said,(as she does with me ALL the time) she will address me again” yes youre right about this. if you bring me up and i find it offensive i WILL defend myself or tell you you are out of line. i have the right to join in on the conversation no matter who is talking, and i WILL. you cant stop me. if you dont like it, go to a website im not on and comment. and also, i never said you called me childish from when i apologized, but all youve said for days is how im like a teenager and childish. and i WAS being nice when i apologized to you and i found it to be very petty to try to stir things up right after you accepted it.

    shauna, she was actually talking about me and nancy when she refused to use our names. april cant seem to understand or accept the fact that people are allowed to disagree without it meaning world war 3. even on the site about britneys kids, i simply told her i thought she misunderstood someones comment and it lead to a non stop fight. dont feel bad, shes just looking for attention.

    jo, how was your weekend? its been a while since we have chatted on tribute 🙂

  95. Jo-Anne • August 18, 2009 @ 4:52 PM

    Hi mandee

    weekend was really good, despite the heatwave, I’m not complaining as we waited so long for the heat, eh?

    I managed to ge+t tickets to soccer so my husband and sons went and I took my daughter to see Harry Potter as we hadn’t been to a movie for so long. She wasn’t too keen on it, but I liked it better than the last one actually.

    p.s. for the record, I know you never posted under another name…but your “friends” did…they know…

  96. Jo-Anne • August 18, 2009 @ 4:55 PM

    you are such a drama queen…and an insincere one at that…

  97. mandee • August 18, 2009 @ 7:05 PM

    who is a drama queen? i think i missed something ! and you enjoyed the last harry potter? i watched in it the drive in and i wasnt very impressed. it seemed boring and didnt have that much action. im not sure what i was expecting, but i didnt exactly enjoy it. im glad you had a good weekend. i really like the heat now, its better than the cold and rain for sure! lol. did your husband and sons have a good time at the soccer game? take care 🙂 and i know you know me well enough to know i dont hide behind other names. never needed to!

  98. April • August 19, 2009 @ 1:48 AM

    If you read Jo’s posts, you would NOT be confused, that’s your problem, you do not READ things before you comment on them, otherwise you wouldn’t be aksing her what she means about “drama queen”!! I never said that you were NOT allowed to pipe in on any post I wrote, whether or not I addressed it to you, I just said no matter if I did or not I knew you would, SAD!! And no matter what I say, I’m ALWAYS wrong in your eyes as you ar so DARN negative, it’s sickening!! Also, I do not need YOU to explain people’s comments to me as you could not even understand Jo-Anne’s above, so why the heck would you understand anyone else’s? I’m not stupid and I DEFINITELY do not need what I say (or others) to be explained back to me, how many times do I have to tell you that? Usually the one that protests too much is the one that is at fault and you are on your way, that’s for sure!!

  99. April • August 19, 2009 @ 1:57 AM

    Hi Jo,

    LMAO, at your 4:55 p.m. post!! You do have a DRY sense of humour, don’t you!!

    Just copied and pasted this off the web re: Paula leaving Idol:

    Simon says Paula’s exit will forever change the show.

    Simon Cowell obviously doesn’t have a heart, but some part of his body, possibly his chest hair, is mourning Paula Abdul’s departure from American Idol. “I spoke to her a lot through the whole process,” he told Fox News. “She was the heart, so you’ve taken that away so it’s a different show.”

    I know you are not a HUGE Paula fan, but I thought you might be interested in it as it shows a part of Simon I never thought I’d ever see in writing, LOL, but nice of him to say!!

    Caio bella!!

  100. Jo-Anne • August 19, 2009 @ 8:52 AM

    thanks april!

    you know, I think Paul seems a very nice woman indeed, but I have a hard time listening to her judgement decision on the show, too much stuttering, long winded going around in circles, unclear – maybe if she would just get to the point, SPIT IT OUT, wrap it up…and if a person sucks, stop with all the gushing, sugar coated, teary eyed….well, you get my point…WRAP IT UP

  101. Jo-Anne • August 19, 2009 @ 8:53 AM

    mandee, the drama queen was meant for shauna…

  102. tributegirl • August 19, 2009 @ 7:17 PM

    April on August 18, 2009 2:21 PM
    April, it’s fine, you say what you want, you’re not bothering me. I wasn’t trying to upset you, I just find that sometimes it is good to look at things from someone else’s perspective, and I was just trying to give you my perspective on the situation. But it’s just my perspective, I’m not saying it’s right or it’s wrong, it’s just how I have seen the whole feud unfold. I’m definitely not attacking you, we’re good.

    Jo-Anne on August 18, 2009 12:49 PM
    Right back atcha! 😉

  103. April • August 19, 2009 @ 8:32 PM

    Fine Tribute Girl,

    But like I said, it only seems to be the 4 of you that feel that way, so that is why I’m not going to change to appease people who constantly slam me. At least you are civil about it, which is more than I can say about the others, so thanks!!

  104. April • August 19, 2009 @ 8:39 PM

    Dear Jo,

    I COMPLETELY agree with what you say about Paula and how sometimes I wish I could just SMACK her on the back to get what she wants to say all out, but because what I know she is going through physically is where I guess my compassionate side kicks in as I know from having the same disease (reflex symapthetic dystrophy) and also the plates and screws on my spine (but hers are on her neck) that I can’t help but understand why at times she is the way she is!! But I know exactly what you mean about how she goes ON AND ON and you just want her to, like you say, WRAP IT UP and let someone else speak!!

  105. Jo-Anne • August 19, 2009 @ 10:32 PM

    totally understandable, april, how you would feel for her, being able to relate to her condition…

  106. mandee • August 20, 2009 @ 12:08 AM

    april, if it will make you feel better, keep talking about me 🙂 notice i gave you the CREEPY smile? there is a reason behind that…

  107. April • August 20, 2009 @ 2:09 AM

    P.S. AGAIN YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING WHEN YOU CLEARLY DID NOT, SO STOP READING THEM AS YOU NEVER UNDERSTAND THEM. GO BACK TO SCHOOL, IT MIGHT HELP!!

  108. mandee • August 20, 2009 @ 7:53 AM

    well, considering you STILL misspell words, and i still DONT clearly IM not the one that need schooling 🙂 also, keep talking princess. you make yourself look BETTER and BETTER in every comment hahaha (sense the sarcasm, i know youre too dense to understand it) anyone that is dumb enough to have that much of a fit over someone on a gossip site sure needs to talk to a professional to get their anger issues worked out. youre still the idiot around here 🙂 not me.

  109. mandee • August 20, 2009 @ 1:14 PM

    needs* ha ha

  110. April • August 20, 2009 @ 6:18 PM

    Your the one that needs SERIOUS help when you lash out twice over thinking that I would NOT understand something that anyone who read the blog WOULD HAVE, so who needs the schooling, NOT ME, OBVIOUSLY YOU, as you cannot even follow a darn blog!! And you STARTED THIS FIGHT, NOT ME, SO TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE!!

  111. April • August 20, 2009 @ 6:24 PM

    P.S. You’re the one that made herself look stupid here. not me, ROTFLMAO!!! I mean Jo had to tell you that she meant Shauna and I already knew that but you didn’t, how ignorant is that? Don’t you follow the blog or ONLY skip to my posts? If you did follow the posts you would have seen that she was talking to Shauna, then OF COURSE you pipied in, then she went BACK to talking to Shauna, BUT NO, you THOUGHT I was addressing you, DON’T FLATTER YOURSELF SO MUCH MANDEE!!

  112. April • August 20, 2009 @ 7:49 PM

    Oops, I mean “PIPED IN”, LOL!!

  113. April • August 20, 2009 @ 11:45 PM

    MISUNDERSTAND? If that was simply the case, you would have said something when she told you it was Shauna she was talking about, yet YOU were the one that started THIS fight, not me, as once AGAIN, you laughed and cajoled about me not knowing who she was talking about, when in fact I knew all along, so why don’t you just admit it when you’re wrong instead of sending me 2 posts about it (to which one was erased) as you are being ridiculous!! When you say that EVERYONE noticed, sorry but I do not consider, “YOUR GANG OF 3” everyone, as clearly there are a lot more people on this blog who disagree with you than you think, because you do not READ their posts!! You constantly go on and on about me always starting fights, when it is YOU who always accuses me of something and when I respond, that is when you TRY to say I started it, GROW UP, as clearly you are the one that is trying so hard for everyone’s attention, not me, couldn’t care less!!

  114. April • August 21, 2009 @ 1:26 AM

    So tell me how posting twice (one was removed, ha,)to me accusing me of thinking Jo was referring to you is NOT your mistake? So why should that warrant you getting angry at me when you screwed up? You’re clearly the one that CRAVES attention, as I don’t give a darn, but obviously you do, even when you blatantly make mistakes and blame the wrong person, so who’s craving the attention now? RIGHT, you as usual!!

  115. mandee • August 21, 2009 @ 1:59 AM

    i dont “crave” anything. also, i dont get mad over stupid gossip sites. apparently you do though. that sounds to me like its a personal problem, and perhaps you should try working on that? i dont get offended, upset, angry etc about this site, except for once i was actually angry at gypsy and i explained to her why it was, and i think part of it was the fact that i hadnt slept in a week. so meh, think what you want, princess 😉

  116. April • August 21, 2009 @ 2:45 AM

    Are you on drugs? YOU not getting mad, upset or angry, ha, ha, ha, ha,!!! That has got to be the BIGGEST contradiction of terms on what you post daily!! Do you even read what you post or are you blind as well? OMG, you are seriously in DENIAL (while you sit by the computer just waiting for me to come so you can respond within 10 minutes is CREEPY, borders on STALKING, so sorry you do not have a life!) I’ve got an idea, why not TRY and go out and GET ONE so you can relieve us all of your nonsense!!

  117. mandee • August 21, 2009 @ 2:41 PM

    nope, i dont use drugs. also, i dont get mad. and its nice of you to accuse me of being blind, how do you know someone in my family isnt blind and i dont find that insulting towards people that are blind? keep insulting me, it shows your insecurities and just proves to the rest of us that you are, in fact, a terrible person 🙂

    ps, if i reply 10 minute after you, perhaps that means that i have the same life as you? i didnt say you dont have a life for posting comments now did i? i log on once or twice a day, i bet my life has more meaning to it than yours.

  118. mandee • August 23, 2009 @ 2:38 AM

    ps. demigod is never rude to me and what he said was that he doesnt come on and fight with anyone for no reason. i was looking for the exact comment to show you in the few articles i remember posting in, but didnt find it, so dont quote me directly.

  119. April • August 23, 2009 @ 3:07 AM

    demigod on August 22, 2009 2:56 AM

    Mandee doesnt take sides, just her own, like me!

  120. mandee • August 23, 2009 @ 3:22 AM

    yep, thats saying i dont take sides, just my own, like demigod. you misunderstood what he was saying. he was saying while there is fighting i do not take sides, i follow my own opinion and then i know what side i want to be on. or at least thats my opinion on what demigod said. where are ya demigod? tell us what you meant 😛

  121. mandee • August 23, 2009 @ 3:25 AM

    anyway, my allergies are killing me and im completely exhausted so have a great night all sweet dreamzzz, im off to bed. 330am here. take care !

  122. Shauna • August 24, 2009 @ 12:31 AM

    ya seem funny to truce now that moon dog caught the play of what happenin. mandee know she not stupid

  123. April • August 24, 2009 @ 2:34 AM

    Shauna,

    You do not even know what you are talking about! Mandee has said on various occasions that she would like to have peace between us, I should know, also “moondog” is causing trouble all over the blogs and not only on the other one, and she even wrote that she thought it was him later and not me, so perhaps you should let us figure this out ourselves, as I’m sure we can and don’t need your input if it is going to be a negative one!!

    youd like that wouldn’t you joanne i mean april. i think moon dog have it right what your thought mandee? suddenly flip over and wanna make truce now since mmon dog say it funny ya

  125. mandee • August 24, 2009 @ 7:21 AM

    shauna, thanks for your concerns, but i have stated, more than once, that i get over things VERY easily. it takes next to nothing. i dont hold grudges, nor do i ever HATE anyone.

    april, i didnt see you defend us, but im not on the other pages yet. thanks for your comment(s) and i am more than willing to get over this and continue to talk as actual adults. thanks for the posts and take care. (i have that northern lights thing to go to today to see if they will pay for my school). bye all 🙂

  126. April • August 24, 2009 @ 2:21 PM

    Great!! Good luck and I hope they will pay for your schooling as that is what stops a lot of people from continuing school because they cannot afford it, so best of luck and let us know what the outcome is!!!

  127. tributegirl • August 24, 2009 @ 2:48 PM

    Good luck, mandee!

  128. mandee • August 24, 2009 @ 9:03 PM

    hey all. i have to reschedule, i had the doctors office call me and tell me it was important i come in right away. have multiple gall stones, they have to take my gall bladder out so they are setting me up with a surgeon, and i have an oversized liver, which they said they usually only see in alcoholics (which i most definitely am not!) so they are going to set me up with a gasterologist (spelling?) and i go in the daycare tomorrow for a half day. ill keep yas updated!

  129. Shauna • August 25, 2009 @ 1:42 AM

    omg mandee i hope every thing is all right. you’re health always come first. good luck today

  130. April • August 25, 2009 @ 3:11 AM

    Mandee,

    I’ve had gallstones and of course I was told at first “SURGERY” but luckily if you change your diet they can dissolve and mine did and went away, but PERHAPS you have too many if you have to have your gall bladder removed!! Can I ask you a question? How many surgeons have you consulted about this, as you should never have surgery based on one doctors opinion, PLEASE LISTEN TO ME ABOUT THIS, I KNOW ABOUT THESE THINGS, and I would not want you to have unnecessary surgery because of one doctors opinion!!! I strongly urge you to get a FEW opinions and then if 3 out of 4 agree, go with the best surgeon to have it done!! PLEASE, I BEG YOU to at least think about this decision VERY LONG AND HARD, especially when you tell me that your liver is oversized and you don’t drink, it could be SO many other things, OKAY KIDDO???

  131. demigod • August 25, 2009 @ 4:31 AM

    wow, to be so young and have those health issues..

  132. mandee • August 25, 2009 @ 7:12 AM

    i know you guys! its freaky. april, i have to have it removed because its causing me a LOT of pain. ive had this problem for about a year or so, it causes me massive chest and back pains off and on (usually once a week) where im so weak i can barely move, cant breathe because of the pain, and it also makes me throw up. my mom has an over sized liver as well, and my dad and sister both had to have their gallbladder taken out. so im assuming its hereditary because the doctor asked me if anyone has either one, and i knew about my dad and sisters gallbladder, but not about my moms liver. i havent yet talked to a surgeon april, she hasnt contacted one yet. when they do they will call me so i can go meet them etc. i start the daycare today for a half day to go over some plans and stuff, you all have a great day.

  133. Jo-Anne • August 25, 2009 @ 4:45 PM

    so sorry to hear of all this mandee, I knew you had some other health issues as well, and am hoping you go through all this and come out of it feeling so much better, you are too young to be suffering this!

    good luck at the daycare too, thinking of you, wishing you well.

  134. mandee • August 25, 2009 @ 6:38 PM

    thanks. i had a great day today. i officially start aug 31 but today i met 2 of the kids we will have (i already met her 2 kids) and it was great, her hubby was home, hes off for today bc his babys birthday is coming up. they are such nice people! i really like it there. also, i just got the call today, i have an appointment with the surgeon on sept 3 at 1130am to discuss what hes doing. apparently, the doctor put me through as a rush patient and i said to the lady that gave me the papers how did i get in so early? to see a specialist it takes forever usually she said yeah well she put a rush on it and said that its very urgent they take care of this problem ASAP. so, im kind of getting worried now!

  135. mandee • August 25, 2009 @ 6:39 PM

    ps, the one baby i had to ROCK for half an hour in my arms to get him to have his nap! my arms are tired and shakey lol, its been about 10 years since i held a baby !

  136. moondog • August 25, 2009 @ 8:09 PM

    liar

  137. mandee • August 25, 2009 @ 9:22 PM

    keep your rude comments to yourself “idjit” no one asked you and no one cares about your insignificant little comments.

  138. moondog • August 25, 2009 @ 10:04 PM

    no one cares bout u either
    idjit

  139. mandee • August 25, 2009 @ 10:59 PM

    are you sure? because you genuinely seem to “care bout” me on the michael madsen article.

  140. April • August 26, 2009 @ 2:11 AM

    Moondog,

    Basically we do not care about you or your inept blogging techniques, so why not just clam up and leave Mandee and everone else alone BECAUSE se don’t care!!

  141. April • August 26, 2009 @ 2:14 AM

    Mandee,

    Just promise me that you will get a few opinons even if it is hereditary, okay? I’m sorry about the pain as I know how painful they are, so it will be good when you finally have them removed, but make sure it is by a GREAT surgeon and that at least 2 out of 3 surgeons agree on the plan of action, PLEASE??!!

  142. Jo-Anne • August 26, 2009 @ 11:12 AM

    don’t worry too much, mandee, the “words” these medical people use can certainly drive us to heightened anxiety for sure….agree with april, get opinions and more opinions if you are unsure, (regardless if their dr. feelings are hurt) You owe it to yourself, just because they’re “specialists” doesn’t always mean they are without question.

    I have moved my own surgery to Sept 2nd with a different doc after 2 opinions, and totally disregard the “cool reception from dr. number one, least on my list of importance – your health, first.

    go with what you feel is comfortable and gather as much info as you can to make that choice.

    good luck, also with the job, sounds like it’s looking up for you!

  143. mandee • August 26, 2009 @ 12:41 PM

    thanks you 2, i figured id see how this consultation goes and decide from there. im also going to get my sis to look up the doctor (there is a page she says she has that tells you reviews on the doctor and if theyve done anything bad like kill someone during routine surgery lol). im not sure yet if they are just taking out the stones or the whole gallbladder, i wont know until i talk to the surgeon. i will keep everyone up to date. i am pretty unimpressed that i already have to miss a day of work (my first full week!) but, i will miss at least one more if they do surgery. (hoping for a friday so i can have the weekend to recover and see how im doing.) and yeah its really looking up for me jo, im really happy about the job and i love the family that lives in that house, they want to take me to buffalo to christmas shop “as a family” with them and their kids. i am loving them already lol.

  144. April • August 26, 2009 @ 5:34 PM

    Hey Jo,

    What surgery are you talking about that you have to have? You never told me anything about it when I told you about mine? I hope it is nothing TOO serious?? PLEASE let me know, okay?

  145. Shauna • August 26, 2009 @ 7:56 PM

    i bet its a sex change april

  146. mandee • August 26, 2009 @ 10:27 PM

    thats rude

  147. mandee • August 27, 2009 @ 1:39 AM

    oh HERE we go. i dont tell joanne shes rude because she doesnt make “sex change” comments. and “ya stuck together like glue is why” is the dumbest sentence ive ever read. and, obviously youre wrong or else she would have defended me when me and april were fighting. i just dont see any reason in picking on people for no reason, especially when they are having a NICE ADULT conversation with someone else. perhaps YOU need surgery…yanno to remove the big stick thats lodged up your butt?

  148. Jo-Anne • August 27, 2009 @ 9:31 AM

    mandee, I’m only going to say this one more time…I have no problem with you…

  149. mandee • August 27, 2009 @ 4:40 PM

    i never said you had a problem with me :S i was just explaining to shauna that we arent “stuck together”.

  150. April • August 28, 2009 @ 2:21 AM

    Hey Jo,

    I guess you would rather not tell me about the surgery then, or do you not want to be hassled by the IDJITS In here? Looks to me like a comment or two were erased as Mandee said she was referring to Shauna and I do not see anything from her, so if Tribute is erasing her comments, one would wonder why, no? I hope at some point you can tell me and that it is NOT serious though!!

    Hey Mandee,

    LMAO at the good comeback to “mooondog” (he/she does belong in space, LMAO!!)

    Am I right? Did they remove a comment that you were referring to from Shauna? Hum……makes you wonder?

  151. April • August 28, 2009 @ 2:27 AM

    Oops, Mandee,

    My mistake, I thought the comment came from “moondog”, could have sworn I saw it say his/her name and now I see it says “Shauna”. Then where did the comment ya stuck together like glue is why come from?

    BTW Shauna,

    Perhaps you are the one that needs help, as comments like that are TOTALLY uncalled for and VERY immature!! Shame on you!!

  152. mandee • August 28, 2009 @ 10:24 AM

    yes they deleted shaunas comment. she tried said something about me and joanne being “stuck together like glue” and some other lame things, they deleted her comment and my original comment back to her because i was just as rude as she was. i forget what else she said.

  153. Shauna • August 28, 2009 @ 10:51 AM

    lame? i bet moon dog is right you are an idgit

  154. Jo-Anne • August 28, 2009 @ 11:38 AM

    sorry, april, it’s for carpal tunnel, right hand now and the left in a few months, so my lengthier remarks on here will be shortened to my left handed capability…but even left handed I assure you, you won’t be confusing my posts with moondog…or shauna…or gypsy…or nancy…..

    in other words…
    my lame hand won’t result in lame comments…

  155. Shauna • August 29, 2009 @ 2:42 AM

    youre comments are allways lame. isnt carpal tunnel cuz of bein on the computer to much?that doesnt tell ya something?

  156. mandee • August 29, 2009 @ 3:19 AM

    jo, she was saying IM lame i think. funny how just recently she was going out of her way to DEFEND me to get in my good graces then BAM she starts insulting me? i wonder who the “LAME” one is now?

  157. April • August 29, 2009 @ 4:26 AM

    Sounds to me that moondog and Shauna and Yerraynus are all the same person, what do you think ladies?

    Jo,

    I also (I know hard to believe, but not bad enough apparently after testing to warrant surgery) have carpel tunnel in my right hand and wear a brace on it when it gets really bad!! I hope the surgery goes well and that you will be pain free afterwards!! When are you having it done? (Sorry to hear it kiddo, but in the long run, you will probably feel better I hope!)

    Mandee,

    See what I mean? Sounds too much like the same person, no?

  158. Jo-Anne • August 29, 2009 @ 8:38 AM

    thanks april…

    mandee, where did you see your name in there? Your insecurity with this is getting too much for me, it appears the constant reassurance that I DON’T have an issue with you is falling on deaf ears, so I’ll leave it at that…

  159. mandee • August 29, 2009 @ 12:27 PM

    jo, i wasnt talking about YOU ! i said i think that shauna was calling ME lame, not you. right underneath mine, i skimmed through what was said and mistook her “lame?” for “lame.” sorry if you misunderstood what i said. she was calling me an “idjit” actually. i thought that you took her comments to be directed at you. anyway. yeah i agree april. shauna has to be someone else around here, so those 2 should fit.

  160. mandee • August 29, 2009 @ 12:29 PM

    oh, also that whole comment was for shauna (the one you commented about), but i used your name in the beginning to tell you i thought she was talking about me. man im not good with explaining things right now.
