  1. Lenora Dorsey Says:

    #10. All seven of them are idiots. Why would six women demean themselves like that? I guess they just want to say they were with idiot Dennis Rodman. Where is their self-esteem? Really, wow!
    #9. Interesting, she does have talent, but she is only 9 years old. Hopefully, she will not have to endure a grueling schedule.
    #6. I am sure it will be good.
    #5. I hope they will be happy.
    #3. She did take her daughter to a neighborhood daycare instead of a celebrity daycare or instead of leaving her with a nanny. Good for her.
    #2. YEA!!!
    #1. Good for her!
    Great stories Leon!
