Eating Humble Pie nom, nom

Remember what late workout time equals for me?

pssst "Hoda and Kathie Lee"

Kathie Lee has done this before and it totally irked me, but this morning - grrrrrrrr.....she was rude to my candidate for hottest researcher: Marcus Buckingham.


Seriously guys, this dude is a researcher, NOT a male model or dancer. NO ONE is rude to Marcus on my watch. nuh uh *shakes head*

Marcus was promoting his latest book, Find Your Strongest Life, which includes a study showing that those without kids are the happiest. Kathie Lee had to immediately jump in and say how much she disagreed. He went on to say part of the reason is that although kids give women a sense of purpose the kids are often not very appreciative.

We can get into a whole debate over this topic. And maybe we will, but Kathie Lee has got to remember to keep her trap shut when there is a guest on the show and let them speak before going into attack mode. She went on to express disagreement about her kids not being appreciative, prefacing it with, "I love you Marcus, but......."

Rude. Rude. Rude.

Granola time!


P.S. I have not used my cell phone today -phew! Also, enter to win 100 flat greeting cards here. Perfect for the holidays...

If research shows that women without kids are the happiest, then Kathie Lee should keep her mouth shut. She may not agree, but don't attack the messenger!

And he is quite the hottie!

Kathie @ my net finds said...

It just goes to show that how we act and what we say tells more about ourselves! It makes me wonder if she's not really happy after having kids, so she had to jump in and argue to the contrary to make herself feel better. Otherwise, why would she care? If she's happy being a mom then she'd feel confident enough to say well, whatever and just listen politely to him. Or she's just rude. lol

Ah but there's research and then there is research. It depends what age group they focused on. I'm convinced that an older age group would say it was ultimately more than worth it ... a family in perpetuity and all that.

That's by the by however. Interrupting people is just plain rude and unfortunately a common problem with our modern 'sound bite' telly, i.e. we have just 'x' minutes to devote to what you have to say before moving on to something else (and that's usually something light weight).

Well, so far, we're pretty happy!

Randi Troxell said...

i totally agree with you on the ole' kathie thing...

if she's gonna invite someone on... be it she disagrees or NOT.. have some couth about the whole matter!

Megan said...

I can't stand Kathie Lee. Annoying!

Rebecca Jo said...

She's one of those people who have to be right, it seems...

plus, this dude is totally hot!

Michele said...

Kathie Lee has always needed to learn the art of keeping her mouth shut (in my opinion).
Never liked her, never will.

Lucy said...

Rude! Just plain Rude!

kys said...

She always has been rude. And she always will be.

Tater Tot Mom said...

I agree with Kathie...why attack so vigorously if you aren't just trying to make yourself feel better.

It's not like anyone cares what she thinks anyway!

Alicia said...

seriously the fact that she is on air still boggles my mind... i can't take that woman! ruuuuuuude!

Dr.John said...

Give her a break. She is a happy mother.

I feel that regardless of what research says, EVERYONE is entitled to their opinion. And KL needs to let people speak. She can disagree that it is not true FOR HER, but who is she to say that it is wrong in general? I don't have kids and I am VERY happy in my life. I know people with kids and they are miserable. Yes it is true we wanted to have kids and we couldn't. But we accepted that and we love our child-free life. I think I still could have been happy with kids, too, but I was not going to live my life as if it was missing something because it is so NOT!

Fifi Flowers said...

He is very attractive!!! Kathie Lee likes to go over the top!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Kathy is rude and that guy is mega hot.

Lisa Paul said...

Well, you may be happier without kids -- unless you have a totally rad son who's working the juggling at the Renaissance Faire. Then you would be seriously happy.

but I always agree that Kathy Lee should keep her big yap shut. (And that is one seriously hot researcher. Where were guys like him in my science labs?)

Laura said...

Not sure who that guy i, but he's pretty cute. Dumb and incorrect but cute non the less! :) Also, Kathie Lee makes me want to puke...I mean, isn't it a little weird that just seeing her picture makes me vomit in my mouth a little bit? Annoying. :)

blueviolet said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. She has the yappiest trap in daytime tv and somebody needs to insist she control it.

Big Mama Cass said...

You mean your "Granny" cell? hehehe

Kristin said...

Something tells me she'll never change.

Tammy Howard said...

Kathy Lee doesn't have the sense she was born with.

Amanda said...

lol well, I am pretty sure that I believe whole heartedly that people with kids are happier then people without. And thats that.

As far as Kathy Lee... I have seen that snarky side come out in her... sorry she was targeting someone you like!

Blessings-
Amanda

Hey Carma! Did ya know that one of your readers came over to my blog and attacked me...anonymously of course... for believe that people with children are happier then people without??

I would love for who ever disagrees with me to prove me wrong. Seems to me that a very UNHAPPY person came over to my HAPPY blog and told me I was wrong.

:)

Blessings girl!
Amanda
