1. I thought she was making excuses to not color her hair...

Personally I would rather people not color their hair or use so many cosmetics, but I realize I am in the minority there. But, seriously not one word about how her husband should stop being a slacking wanker and take care of the house more and watch over the kids more? What a creep. Does she have kids? Did she work? I really don't know much about this "lady". She sounds like something out of Pat Robertson's wet dreams.

5. Well, she's always been a pants warmer

Every extended Irish family had one of them, the woman who would creep down, collecting all the pants from all the men, build up the fire, and warm their britches so their dear little arses wouldn't get cold, using up the fuel that had been saved for cooking breakfast.

She and the entitled males will just never get the fact that an overworked and resentful woman is just not going to be all that interested in intimacy with an adult who has declared himself to be another defacto child who must be waited on and cleaned up after. It's a major buzzkill.

3. Dressing like a teenager hasn't worked, either, for a long time

but I see she's still clinging to that even though she's declared independence from the dye bottle. Of course, her main problem is that she's a twisted, right wing non expert parading as a wise woman with all the answers.

One of my best days was when I got a wild hair and stripped all the dye out of my hair. That was 10 years ago and I have been so glad I finally did it.

6. the hair is okay

but what comes out of that mouth EEEK!!! This is something I don't understand - grey hair takes color a lot better than other colors, yet when she's totally grey, she stops dyeing her hair?

9. Actually, she did pose nude in the mid nineteen seventies.

Her early radio mentor and married lover took the photos and later (1998) sold the photos to a porn site. She filed suit against him and lost the case. She also met her current husband (second) when he was married and lived with him for nine years before they married when she became pregnant. She is one flaming hypocrite who delights in judging anyone, according to her imaginary moral compass, who crosses her path.

10. Those pictures are upsetting, sort of like the pictures of a young, happy Ann Coulter.

Not because of the nudity, but because they show a human being not yet consumed with hate.

13. More -she berates people who divorce; but she was divorced: "it was a mistake, I corrected it".

She berates people who don't speak to their family members, but she was estranged from her mother for 14 years, and her mother died alone and wasn't found for days. She is also estranged from her sister - so much so that most people thought she was an only child. She told them she was an only child. Her sister is a real family counselor, imagine that.

She berates people who decide to use fertility treatments to have children, instead of adopting in those circumstances. But Dr. Laura saw nothing hypocritical in getting her tubal ligation reversed and spent a lot of money and time using fertility treatments when she wanted one of her own. Like she'd stoop to having a used child.

Pretty much, if Dr. Laura tells someone not to do something, you can be certain that she is doing it herself or has done it. She figured out a cash cow, which made her 71.5 million dollars when she sold her program, and she has kept on full steam ahead ever since. She doesn't believe a word she says.

A couple of article links - one is about Dr. Laura being out for revenge after she ran from radio after using the N-word 11 times in trying to make a point that made no sense, but let her get her aggression out. The other is site that has the original Vanity Fair article from some years ago, that has her still pissed off (she says the reporter lied about her simply because Dr. Laura is thin and attractive, while the reporter was fat, "obese". No kidding). A wierd site, but the only place I could quickly find that had the article.

Dr. Laura has anger and unhappiness eating her alive, every day. Can you imagine being at the end of your life, looking back at days spent enraged at everyone and everything at every moment? I wonder if she will know then that she squandered her life here.

14. I have a very personal animosity toward this woman.

I have a friend who, during a very difficult and heartbreaking time in her life and in need of nothing more than a kind word, called the Dr. Laura program for advice. That beast spent 15 minutes degrading and humiliating my friend at time in her life when her self esteem was at its lowest. I was so angry and hurt for my friend that I called in to the program the next day to express my opinion of her "skill" and "compassion" as a counselor. Of course, she refused to speak to me. I wrote and mailed a long letter to the program. I don't imagine she ever actually received the letter and I never received a reply.

I am convinced that this woman derives great satisfaction by using her perceived power in judging and demeaning others to convince herself of her own superiority. In my opinion, she is very twisted.

15. It is probably a small consolation, but I doubt that the beast has ever known the kind of fierce

loyalty that you showed on behalf of your friend. She just wouldn't attract that kind of person, nor would she be capable of returning the favor. What struck me as I read a few articles about her was the unanimous opinion from anyone and everyone who knew her/worked with her/screwed her that she was a monster, and they didn't mind having their names attached. She's left a trail of broken minds and spirits wherever she has been over her lifetime - what a nasty achievement.

I can't believe that instead of being railroaded out of polite society, this monster is embraced and worshiped by "followers". I listened a few times while on the road, and was horrified at her deliberate cruelty - you are correct, I also believe that she very much enjoys drilling into people's pain, at the very moment when they can't take it anymore and decide to reach out for help. There are almost no words for such a vile thing, yet she has made millions on the practice.

I hope you friend was able to put Dr. Laura's tirade behind her and find the peace of mind she sought by calling in. I don't believe Dr. Laura reads any of her mail; probably has assistants troll for good material for the show, ignoring anything else that won't give her a platform to bark like a seal for cash.

18. Thanks. I have to say, she's hysterical and harsh as sandpaper.

She goes for the burn - every single time. It's like she's the puppy, grown up now, that got kicked across the floor in order to 'toughen it up'.

22. She berates women who plan to have a kid past late 30s, but she had kid at that age

She told parents who suspected kids of smoking pot to turn them over to cops, but didn't seem to run to cops when her kid had issues.

she was so hypocritical on her show. It was stunning.

27. Ive seen them.

Like i said, what is distrubing to me is the sense that once, there was a relatively fun-loving human in there, not consumed by hate- sort of like Ann Coulter's high school pictures.

The nudity is secondary.

16. I like how she bragged on herself for having the self discipline to be an

orthodox Jew, until she decided to switch to Christianity, because Christians were nicer to her. And I used to hear her support gay callers, until she decided that they were immoral. A real piece of work, that one.

I think she would look a lot better with hair color, maybe a brunette shade. There are very few people who actually look good with gray hair IMHO.
