A look at celebrity
There are three cameras in this picture. The guy to the left who is taping for a documentary. The guy next to him who is recording an interview. The woman on the right who is a photographer for a newspaper. There was also a fourth person with a camera who took this picture.
Some people say that I always stand up for Ronda, as if that's a bad thing. Well, I do. In part, it is because family comes first and I am always on the side of my family, no matter what.
Also, I have learned to have a little more understanding for celebrities. Yes, people who live in homes by the beach and make a seven-figure income don't generate too much pity.
However, think about yourself. If your life was scrutinized from all angles seven days a week, how likely is it that you would NEVER say something that makes you sound unkind, uneducated or untruthful, particularly if it was taken out of context? I'll bet most people regularly say things and then say, "No, wait, I didn't mean it like that, what I meant was ---" or later realize what they said wasn't worded the best way.
If it is most people, though, no one remembers if five minutes later, and everyone goes on with whatever they were doing.
My suggestion for the day is that next time you read something in the tabloids or hear it on some celebrity gossip show, compare it to the dumbest thing you've said this month and just be glad no one was around to film you.
Oh, yeah, hey, buy my book, Winning on the Ground. And go write nice reviews of it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.com !!
