WOW ! ! ! !

Mama, I just luv-luv-luv watching your well-earned and deserved shining star rise.

You work so hard, are so gifted, possess such magnificent sills in expressing your persona. I want to jump through the internet gray matter and give you a big wet kiss on the cheek and a hug just short of breaking ribs.

Rock on! You freakin' blow me away!

Major xxs...ooo...xxx-ooo...xxx-ooo..

FANTASTIC ! ! ! ! !

Of course, Ellen is gonna' put out a Lesbo-hit on your ass. Just don't go near rock-climbing walls, Seattle, or hiking boot stores for the next few days, okay?

Congrats Marky Mark!

Way to go Mama! My life will only be complete when they show a clip of DR. C. and the LONGBODIES. Now I can forget the video and return to my concept of you with clip on earings, catseye glasses and just the earliest blossoming of spider veins.

Mama, at your beck and call ... forever.

sandpiper said...

Give us a still shot of the interview, Mama.

Lickety split.

aunt mary said...

Oh, Mama honey, you look so sweet on tv. And those shoulders! You have a demure demeanor that is so seductive! Oh my goodness, someone bring me a glass of water.

Congrats, Mama

It just shows you how brilliant the "mama" concept of this blog is.

Way to go.

lil' gay boy said...

No H2O, Aunt Mary; it's a gin & tonic or nuthin'…

Anonymous said...

Oh no, I wish I had never seen that! It has ruined my imaginings of my Mama.

What about The Dr. Cooter? Is he....no, I don't even want to ask.

La la la la la...putting my hands over my eyes.

Mama's Yummy!! ..and tan!

Xdm said...

oh, Mama!
If you ever want to cheat on that Dr. Cooter with a married mother of two you just call me!

Anonymous said...

wait? your "mama" is a man? im so confused? oh well i still like the blog =\

Rhea said...

Oh, Mama, I love you and your blog. Adopt me!

Anonymous said...

Mama is articulate, talented and very attractive. I am so proud to be one of the children. Dr C and the the girls must be elated. Was looking for the "big ear" but couldn't detect it. Please don't abandon us now that you have hit the big time.

Congratulations and salutations! I agree with all the well-wishers, you are a handsome devil. Go have a g&t!

mama, can I be your houseboy? I'll work for free...only if you promise to treat me the same way Rob Lowe treated his nanny!!!!!

eddie from pdx said...

Uh oh... the boys (and some girls)... seem to be all over you!

Congrats.

Well spoken Mama.

P.S.

1986 called. It wants it's shirt back.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations! Very well deserved. You're a terrific and talented reporter/writer/artist. You brighten my day on a daily basis and you should be recognized for it. Go get yours!

l.a.guy said...

Nice job. In addition to your literary wit what impresses me most about you is that you're able to keep up this blog and still make a living. I hope you're able to cash in all of the hard work someday.

Thanks for entertaining us.

Mazel tov, Mama!

StPaulSnowman said...

What a joy to read every single joyous comment. Everything is positive, happy...........flush away your nerve pills!

I'm gutted. I have always pictured you as a 300lb woman with a southern accent, reeking of gin!

Anonymous said...

Mama, now you have a few stalkers of your own! Hot damn, I'm definitely bumping you to the top of my most wanted list.

PS, you deserve all the praise you are receiving for your hard work on this entertaining and educational site. I love it and you!!!

that girl said...

Mama -

Very articulate, insightful observations (esp. about Ellen) and I happen to love the black Lacoste shirt on you. Like gin & tonics, they never go out of style.

Hottie in Chi said...

OH MY!!!!!

Um. I've been soo duped... Mama a man? Now I like "her" even more. So is Dr C real or are you available? Come to daddy!

Some how I always picture Mama as a sassy black women... Queen Latifa-esq! What a surprise!

Anonymous said...

o... and I lacoste polo is not so 1986. get with it douche.

sandpiper said...

About Our Mama...just believe. It's not complicated. Close your eyes and envision what you sense Mama to feel and be. II picture an excrutiatingly coiffed, manicured and designer-clad women of substance...with a zebra-skin (faux / natch) shopping bag. On a casual day, she wears golden threaded stretch pants... but never beyond the apartment.

It's all good. In fact, it's spectacular. GO MAMA. Rock it.

pch said...

I wear Lacoste shirts today. I also wore them in 1976 and 1996.

1980 -- the year Lisa Birnbach released The Official Preppy Handbook -- might a better year to use for that joke.

Anonymous said...

Yes people wore them in 1986 but they aren't dated to that time like parachute pants in the early 90's.

Lacosta and Polo polos have been "cool / preppy" for decades and probably will be for decades more.

Anonymous said...

Mama!

You're quite the looker! I'm so glad you finally revealed to us your sexy face! Like the others, I'm waiting for a family photo of the Cooter, Linda and Beverly and I will be over the moon!

Smooches. Alex.

Teri O said...

OMG!!!! I thought you were a woman....took the mama thing literally! Either way, you're awesome and congrats on hitting the Big Time baby!
PS LaCoste is timeless and can be worn anytime anyplace anywhere.

lil' gay boy said...

What's all this upsetness about Mama's shirt?

Don't go sassing on our Mama's wardrobe or she'll be forced to get the wooden spoon…

And I won't EVEN tell you what I've pictured Mama in…

=8-O

sandpiper said...

Please, no wooden spoon, Little Buddy. We've been super good; practically perfect in every way.* I don't want to hear the sound of Our Mama's utinsel drawer opening. Oh no.

caveman said...

Esslingvier said...

Mama!!! This is too grand and I am so happy for you and for us, your loyal followers. You are adorable, as many of us already knew. This was a wonderful surprise. I'm with LGB, this calls for a G&T. I also think stills would be very nice...

I Googled you a while back, so no surprise. The whole concept is igenious, and obviously, you're brilliant. Keep it up, and thanks for including the midwest every now and then.

My comment on the Lacoste shirt was meant to be a joke.

Classics never go out of style.

Funny that it riled people up however.

Mars said...

Mama is...A poppa?!

Whaddaya know! ;D

twins said...

WooHOO! Way to go, Mama! You looked fab, and it was fun to match your real speaking voice to your writing 'voice.'

You always make me feel better when I see what people who could by ANYthing CHOOSE to buy... husband has stopped running to help when he hears my shrieks of horror (I'm talkin' to you, Mr. Macaroni Grill). Well deserved; hope you're enjoying a nice celebretory drink with the longbodies and Dr. Cooter as I type!

twins said...

And, uh, yeah, sorry for my spelling. Little too much red wine going on here.

Louisa said...

Mama, I'm so proud...I love your blog and seeing you is very cool. By the way you are pretty hot too.

Cvilleguy said...

I agree with most of the people who have posted: you looked and sounded great. But the real question is: How can this be turned into $? [Unless that is not a goal?] I wonder if you could pitch a "this week in celebrity real estate" segment for one of the tabloid shows?

Anonymous said...

Yo Mama, I think I just turned gay. luvit!

Amy said...

mama, while i am a relative newcomer to your humble "Website Abode," i have been a good child, and have been sharing with everyone i know just how wonderful Mama truly is...and all the witticisms and wisdom she has to impart!

i'm glad to see you finally getting the recognition you deserve!

kudos!!

Flora said...

Darn it. I wake up to find all this excitement with Mama on TV, then find I can't view it.
Can someone put it up on youtube so I can admire Mama in all her glory? Please?

ray said...

Yo Mama!

Great news and well deserved!

First being quoted on CNN and now it's 'lights, camera, action'!!!

Greetz, Ray

GASP! MAMA!!! YOU A MAN!

You are such a talented writer/snarker, darling. May your rising star continue evolving to supernova status.

What the??!! You go, handsome Mama!

philistine tracker said...

(hep-ner) How wonderful and tacky that you too can find wealth and fame through art. Such high ideals!

Anonymous said...

(hep-ner) who cares?

Buy an ad.

Mama shouldn't lower her(him)self to a segment on a tabloid show.

She could *easily* float a weekly 1/2 hour show of her own.

And I bet it would be a hit too.

Anonymous said...

Not a bad idea Mama- you could handle a 30 minute show easily! And it would be great!
So, I wasn't certain whether you were male or female- If female, I knew you were an older cynical broad who probably had a smokers voice... Let's just say, I prefer you as a young witty handsome male!
Congrats on the CNN appearance-

Very good looking. :) Are you single?

floridazephyr said...

Ever hear of Dr. Cooter? Get with the program. Cooter is Mama's anchor, her Gibraltar.

Anonymous said...

For a few months now, the Real Estalker has been my secret little blog. I laughed with Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter and the long bodied bitches. It was so good, I didn't tell anyone about it. I kept you to myself.

Oh well, now I can come out of the shadows and discuss your blog. Of course I'll know more that any of the newbies who've just found you.

Way to go!

Thanks for all you do, Big Mama.

Mama mia!

To think I imagined you as a highly sucked and tucked blonderexic, cigarette smoking ex-debutante. Love the real you even more. Keep dishing and give Dr. Cooter a big hug from me.

Geeeeeeee, I thought you were of the feminine persuasion but I guess I'm not completely wrong. Doesn't matter-you are adorable and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the blog!!!

bentley said...

Nice WORK, Mama!

I'm straight, but come near me in that shirt and I'll rip it off you!

Anonymous said...

I thought I'd gone to heaven because the headline said you'd be on with Anderson!

Imagine two pieces of white bread goodness; my tongue was ready to bathe the screen.

But you weren't on with the Silver Fox; you were on with that woman... which is ok... I guess...

Love the hair, btw.

Poo said...

Mama....You are so smokin hot I can feel your heat moving this way. Your fam is so damn proud of you.

Ah yes. The twin flames of Fame and Fortune are at long last burning brightly for Muh-maw. If I have my way, there will be a reality show coming this way soon, starring our very own!

BTW, I all but live in black polos of various brands. Where in the world are these guys that think a black Lacoste is out of style?

Anyways, they only allow us so much time on the MAC here at rehab central, and The Bouef is getting huffing (again) waiting for his turn. So... I have to run. I'll check back in after I've checked out next month. My love to all.

Mama, I always pictured you as a 300lb black sass of a woman! Now you are just some smoking hot....wait for it.....stud!
