If that isn't a racist comment on both the gender and the weight. The question is can and do they do their jobs? Gee Grow up America

What the hell does it matter? Most of you people are too ignorant to even understand what these women went through to get where they are. Obviously, VB is still full of racism and that is just disgusting. Listen to the people that speak to you on the news, you may learn something...

why are their co-host over the hill, washed up white guys who read the news? I mean why don't you finish high school and strive to get a job "sir"?

I like Nicole Livas...she normally has a smile and a nice attitude. I agree with Joe to some degree...but Nicole is educated and dosen't carry that entitlement attitude around with her...part of her attraction.

Joe and the other guy are right,,,,That is exactly the sparkle to Nicole Livas...she doesn't have the entitlement chip....the rest of them smucks just don't get that part, they all think whites somehow do not have to work their ass off night and day to suceed...like they should just be given a job, promotion, respect, etc. It it all EARNED through hard work, behavior,personality, keeping your appearance suitable, etc.
Blacks listen to much to their shuck and jive preachers whos job it is to say....your treated cruel, disadvantaged, God is your only hope, give me your money!

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Ms. Livas in a local grocery store. Her attitude was very pleasant and she didn't come off as being conceited. As a matter of fact, I even gave her some coupons for which she was very appreciative. Ms. Livas you're doing a great job. Keep up the good work.
As far as the comment made by Doobie:
1. Learn how to spell correctly. You're trying to sound and write intelligently when in fact you may want to use a dictionary the next time you write or type a comment.
2.? to you, How do you really know the above comments were sent in by African Americans? Can you see through the computer? And if they are African American, it's unfair to catagorize an entire race because of the comments of a few people. In other words, grow up and stop being so sensitive. HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!
