Seriously.

Attn: Short Bitch Session in Progress...

I always listen in on the morning gossip on the radio talk shows while waiting to put the kids on the bus in the mornings. I usually just sit there and roll my eyes and say to myself how spoiled are ridiculous the "celebrities" really are. Why do people enable them? Then I realize, I enable too by listening to that damn talk show every morning. But...I digress. This morning I was totally beside myself when the DJ brought up the topic of finally seeing Beyonce Knowles wearing her wedding ring. This alone is not a big deal, but the fact that it is an 18 carat flawless diamond worth $5 million dollars is a HUGE deal! Seriously? Seriously. I think I may have vomited a little in my mouth. No, not really, but I did think I might. A picture of said ring can be seen here.

Isn't she worried about being whacked over the head with something? I don't understand how you could wear that on your finger. Probably because I am just part of the average American family. This weeks' paycheck pays for this weeks' bills, next weeks' paycheck, next weeks' bills, and so on and so forth. I just get a little disgusted when I see things like this. Go sell that damn $5 million dollar monstrosity and feed about 3 million starving children all over the world. For months. Seriously.

  1. I saw the movie Blood Diamond... I told my husband right then not to ever buy me diamonds again. I told him to buy me rubies instead, simulated rubies.... What a waste!!! Who do they think they are fooling? I'm not ashamed to admit I took the plunge...

  2. The one ring I wear was given to me by my Wrangler (she saved and saved and saved her money) a year ago mother's day... so you can imagine how much 'said ring' is worth- but it has WAY more value that that freakin rock! Geez.

  3. I'm very proud of your remarks on that big ass diamond. We all like shiny things, but at least we have enough sense to realize how superfluous they can be when a celebrity wears something like that. Personally, I would feel guilty and ashamed of myself for having something of that monetary value while others have nothing. You don't see Oprah wearing something like that.
