Martha Versus Donald.

By Alison February 22, 2006 1 Comment 1 Min Read


When my mum and dad used to fight when Helen and I  were little, we  were always quick to take sides.  Helen would never let a word be said against Mum and I was a Daddys girl through and through. Ostensibly because we have the same noses, but more truthfully because  I am a mercenary cow and I knew which side my bread was best buttered if I wanted my pocket money…

But oh now I’m flummoxed. My two favorite celebrities are at loggerheads and I find myself sitting on the kind of fence my sparring parents would have pushed me off a few years ago…

I love them both. Martha is Martha and Donald, well Donald is the Donald isn’t he?? I’m just hoping that, like my Mum and Dad, when the dust settles on their spat they’ll be back to the kind of competitive, humourous, you are so like me I can’t stand it, kind of flirting that defines every conversation my Mum and Dad ever have…

    Well, if you read his open letter, you'll probably agree that he went a bit too far in his criticism. He was critical of Matha's daughter, so if I were Martha, I'd be furious. He ridiculed her daytime show and also brought up the lying on IM Clone stocks. Martha replied by saying she was shocked her dear friend could be so mean spirited. And Donald's reply, despite the fact I'm on Martha's side, was so funny… "Hell, yeah, I'm mean spirited about it, and we aren't that dear of friends." It is my opinion that Martha's troubles have many times been in the fact that she seems unable to be or choose a friend very well. She has a few friends that I believe would never harm her, (Rosie, that chick from the Sopranos, etc.) and then she decides Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and who knows who else are dear friends. Politics aside, I don't think Hillary is the "friendly" sort, and although I'm amused at The Donald, he is a pompous fellow and unless he chose to show his inner core (if he has one) I don't think he's really the kind I'd want to count on. I wish Martha the best, but I'll probably still watch Donald. I just think she's been through enough. ????
