but, only difference (if you are a guy)… bet your girls aren’t still ‘virgins’…

Suze is absolutely brilliant at what she does.  She gets paid lots of money to give fairly useless general information to lots of people and she doesn't have to waste precious hours becoming overly knowledgeable.

If she's that bad, then her show would go off the air and no one would buy her books.  See what the rest of you could do who REALLY know something!  Now go get a spot on Oprah and then you can easily replace her.

Apparently the "girlfriends" haven't learned how to do the Hyman Maneuver yet.     

Notice how gays wait until they're famous first before they come out of the closet.  

Would they have been just as famous if they came out of their closet first?

I think joe would be an excellent replacement.  Let’s book him on Oprah.  You know Oprah is the one who determines gets to be famous next.

Mass media advisers (in the loosest sense of the term) are helpful in as much as they convince todays spender to change his habits and become tomorrow’s client for personal advisers.

Hmmm, could I use that as my signature line.

Self Professed Resume of Suze Orman:

- Dropped out of College

- Waitress at a Coffee Shop until 1980

- Merrill Lynch as an 'Account Executive' 1980-1983 (big deal)

- Prudential Bach as V.P. of Investments 1983-1987 (couldn't make it at Mother Merrill)

- Independant 'Advisor' from 1987-1997

-Book Tour/Talk circuit from 1997- present

Ever notice how Oprah seems to 'discover' people and promote products, books, etc that turn out to be a hoax? I bet Suze would jump on a couch and give you a million little pieces of reasons why she can still advise with this background.... kinda makes you wonder.

Gofor, do you think Joe acts gay, and he would come out publicly as the replacement?

The wonder is, she might be an excellent advisor, it's just that you can't serve two masters. We already know she is good at jumping on the couch. Gopher raises some interesting points here.

No, I don't think Joe is gay--did I say a "replacement of a gay fa who will do their own tv show, write books?"  No, as Suze says, "don't think so!"..  I meant there isn't anyone else with a tv show.

Now just because James Frey wasn't that great doesn't mean Oprah doesn't know what she's doing.  Dr. Phil is still going strong.

Google Suze, she's a CFP.

I'm not a die-hard fan as I mentioned.  She just has commonsense info/advice and presents it very clearly, logically.

Google Suze, she's a CFP.

Not a very good one since she can't figure out how to pass her estate to her significant other.

According to Editor and Publisher, when she was asked by Deborah Solomon if she is married, Orman countered that she has a "relationship with life." After further pressing, Orman revealed that she is in a seven-year relationship with Kathy Travis, a coproducer on The Suze Orman Show.

She told Solomon that the two would like to get married because they each "have millions of dollars in our name. It's killing me that upon my death, K.T. is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa."

The woman is an idiot.

Well I certainly didn't mean to put words in your mouth and imply that you were implying that Joe acts gay most of the time, anyway he might get to be a CFP like Suzee someday, and if you watch her a little each day, that's okay, can't comment on James Frey.

Suzee is a common sense woman, and being a waitress is a good start on this career path, who among us has not a diverse past.

Muny...hitting heavy on the whitespace aren't you?

Yeah...I agree: she needs to read some of those financial books written for gays.

Give her a point for clearly presenting commonsense info to the masses.  Give her a point for having the nerve to sue her employer (ML) when she lost that money as I takes nerve to sue your employer while you're still working for them.  She's also trying to empower women, too, with her latest book.

Her show has gotten dull...bring back Jeff--he was good at reading email  

Nothing wrong with her working as a waitress, though.  She then was "discovered" and that's how she moved up.

Looney, I know a few folks around here who could show her a big MEC VUL policy to take care of Suzy and life partner.

Mar 28, 2007 11:50 pm

Yeah...I agree: she needs to read some of those financial books written for gays.

She needs to read some of those financial books written for anyone. 

Two people who are not married and who are unrelated to each other can do financial planning regardless of their bedroom acrobatics. Any compenent CFP would be able to suggest multiple strategies. 

This has nothing in the world to do with being homosexual or lesbian.  They are just trying to play a victim card.  I could figure out a way to leave everything to my cat without having it eaten up with taxes if I wanted to.

Since we are in the proscriptive mode, maybe she could just use a valium prescription.
