    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    Strongly disagree. I've ghosted people who were simply toxic personalities and for whom no firm "goodbye" was ever enough for them to not keep trying to come back. I once taught a student who was heavily addicted to gambling. I tried getting him help so many times. Yet somehow he found out my...

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    I find the surrogacy thing very creepy, as is the gynecological examination of her pregnant body. I noticed the comments about her went from general (and sometimes valid) criticisms to really creepy when she ... got pregnant. I think quite frankly much of the British public is not ready for a...

    Imo some of the plans being circulated online to kill the baby go beyond cyber bullying and I hope police are investigating the threats.

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    There's actually a valid theory that famous people often get the worst medical care. Reason being the power balance between a famous person and a doctor is shifted. Many doctors end up being enablers and/or unable to speak to their client in frank terms. It just so happens that the Queen has...

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    It is ridiculous the fixation on swelling. Swelling is not necessarily a sign of pregnancy. Swelling is often a sign of poor circulation and general health. I have a friend who everyone was convinced was 'so cute' pregnant because she was gaining so much weight and swelling all over. They...

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    I can't. I just ran across a YT video with 100% proof that Meghan is in fact a man pretending to be a woman. They call her "man-gan" and they have "100% proof" that shes in fact a he. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2RkKrSzOpM

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    I also know a young woman (aged 29) who had to have IVF treatments because she had two ectopic pregnancies in a row. And this woman is not famous. Yet she was appalled at the rude comments she got when she talked about IVF treatments. She said her aunt even said "well then that's not really your...

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    Uh ... wow. Thanks for catching me up. I don't know why people think Meghan's ovaries are dried up. She's 37. She might have taken some fertility drugs to speed up pregnancy but I know many women who had late-30's-early-40's pregnancies and they were all honeymoon babies. As for the bump...

    Ermolina's interview with Zagitova `Only the relatives and coaches knew what that victory cost me'

    Uh are you guys serious? Witt has said many times (and no reason to doubt her sincerity considering this was over 30 years ago) that she was very disappointed in her Olympic performance of Carmen. It did not show her at her best. Maybe she genuinely admired Alina's spunk in skating a technically...

    Royalty Thread #8.....A Pregnant Pause

    Wait what? I've read a whole bunch of royal conspiracy theories (the latest being the "tiara" feud between Kate and Meghan) but haven't heard of the "Meghan's not really pregnant" theory. I have read some online discussions that are saying that they baby will look "African" and thus the royal...

    Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir #48: Long Time Running

    I'm glad it worked out the way it did. If they had won again in Sochi I think they would have retired. And plus there was so much negativity in the training environment leading up to Sochi that I doubt they would have even valued a gold medal as much.

    Opera Suggestions, II

    Thanks for your review of Clemenza! Actually Joyce's small size has IMO always been a bit of a problem in trouser roles. I think it only works when the romantic lead is also fairly petite. As for Clemenza the piece is an odd duck. It's very unusual for Mozart that he farmed out the recitatives...

    Olympic governing body 'knows the truth' behind late figure skater's alleged sexual abuse

    I think I'm going to step away from this board. I cannot believe that so many people here want to publicly shame and hound the victims. I never saw this in any other board, not the gymnastics boards about Larry Nassar, not the television discussion boards about Leaving Neverland. The words of...

    Olympic governing body 'knows the truth' behind late figure skater's alleged sexual abuse

    He must "public" them? Do you not know how the law works? Victims of sexual abuse are given anonymity in court. Underage victims are even more protected. I cannot believe you have so little empathy for three underage victims of sexual abuse.

    Olympic governing body 'knows the truth' behind late figure skater's alleged sexual abuse

    My heart really goes out to any figure skater who is a victim of abuse right now. To see this kind of response and some of the biggest names in the sport on a full-on "blame the victims and shoot the messengers" campaign ... How will they have the strength to report the abuse? To even admit to...
