    I truly am saddened by ignorant viewers choosing to negatively comment on her–her appearance at that! The self hate you must exhibit is astounding. Learn to love yourself. Then you won't feel the need to hate on beautiful people.

    I ran into her once on an elevator in San Francisco, I told her I remembered her from talk radio way back in the late sixties,and that I enjoyed her so much then. She replied, "that certainly does date both of us" She is everything you would expect and more.
