Viewer Comments

I know..its been a while since I've shared viewer emails and comments. Someone asked me the other day if I still got mean emails from viewers. I chuckled and told them how it had really quietened down and I believed my critics were away on summer vacation, although the "when you are going to lose the baby weight?" and the "are you pregnant AGAIN?" emails have totally ceased. Now that I've lost 50+ pounds, they have to find something else to pick me apart on.

Barbie, I love your newscast, so please don't take this the wrong way, but, I would highly suggest you get a new hair-do. Yours looks like its from the 1950's. It is very big hair. People at my office make jokes about it. Just a suggestion. Signed, Charles Jackson

I can't help that not everyone is a 'child of the 80s' and doesn't appreciate 'big hair', but I will admit that even I have toned it down a bit lately. My hair is getting longer and when it get longer, it gets heavier, so it's not as BIG as it was before. But how sad that his co-workers make jokes about my hair and don't have anything else to do (like work) at work!

And I had this anonymous viewer comment on my voice mail last night:

"That yellow blouse you're wearing tonight has the same crease in the same place as it did last Wednesday night when you wore it. The only thing thats different is your buttons are alittle lower on the sleeve this time around. But it just doesn't look professional!"

I had to wonder who this lady was watching last Wednesday wearing a yellow blouse because it wasn't me. I was at home with the swine flu.

You know the weather is boring to listen to when viewers are discussing your big hair in the workplace and counting the creases in your blouse!

Good grief....I just wonder where these people come from...I would not handle it very well if I was that picked apart!!! You do a great job with taking it all in stride...

Not big hair,you have been blessed with thick hair. They are probably jealous.
I thought crease's were supposed to be in the same place, buttons lower on the sleeve?? of the same blouse?? Barbie, shame on you for moving the buttons??? :-)

I've always found it amusing how women (and some men) feel they have the right to voice their opinion on what a local personality wears. It's almost this entitled concept of "well, if you're going to come into my home 5 nights a week, you're gonna hear what I think, durn it!"

Really? There's a fine line between trying to helpful and just be jealous/envious/mean.

Sometimes, it's simply best to fall back on the old sayin': "If you ain't got anything nice to say, don't say anything!"

It all comes back to the idea of judging others for faults that people see and dislike in themselves.
Easier to criticize others than to fix themselves.

I love your hair, whether it is big or not as big, and I love your clothes, whether with a crease or whether yellow or any other color of the rainbow, but what does it matter because you love Jesus, and that is all that counts.
You give us the weather in a beautiful way and that love of Jesus shines through whether it is hot, cold, rainy or sunny.
Thank you for who you are.
