On and Poppin'

Posted by on Sep 9, 2010 in Uncategorized | 15 Comments

As you know, I couldn’t make it yesterday.  Lots going on.

Today, it’s only 7:00 and I am already confused.

But I tell you what.  A friend of mine had a scare that made me settle back and see all my blessings yet again.  Though I would like to run into more rational people it is no longer necessary to my peace of mind.

I know it is Ask Me Thursday but I haven’t got it together.  Ask if you like, but I don’t know if I’ll get back here today.

A shout out to my hard working students Yolanda and Shadeisha.  Hang in there ladies!!!!!

    Judge Lynn T, I was on your show, the very first taping of your new episode, and I was very excited to be a part of , when I was called because I had watched you so many times before on TV. Today I feel horrible and so humilated that I came to the show, because not only was i not allowed to share the reality and reason for a divorce, but nor was I able to speak honestly about what lead me to want a divorce , which made my husband look like the victim, I was directed to yell constantly which I thought was very rude to do in court or even to get a point across , but I had lack in knowledge as to what I could and could not do. I was going on national television and I thought I had to act rude just as the producers directed and scripted me to do ,which in turn you labled me as a trouble maker being loud and rude..I was totally outdone. My husband took me thru it and we were married 11 years 9 he was in prison, I was told not to mention that, so you responded to partial facts which made me look to be the problem. After that taping, I refuse to watch and I shared with other not to watch either , unless we are able to come back on the show a do a retake,..and speak truth, not act like clowns, I truly believe that you have a great wisdom Judge, and you could only respond to what was presented to you by myself,my husband and your producers which did not reflect the truth or was half truth so we only got half help from you, my husband really could have used you words of wisdom, and he did not get them, the way I know you have the gift to share with a man such as him. I truly appreicate your wisdom you share with everyone, without discrimination, but Judge, I was heart broken after leaving your show, because still today, my husband and I don’t even speak, If you had heard the entire truth and senareal, I know you could have share wisdom with the both of us, with out the ill effect feelings. His arrogance is as if he is a star now. Oh , I must apologize for my behavior at the airport, …I share with your producer to inform My husband not to show up to the airport with a woman, and believe that instigated that and it cause me a lot of harm, but becaiuse of my word to your show, I came anyhow, and had a horrible time. It was not worth it at all, today I am still hurting behind that. we were offer counseling and we got a ten minute rush and referral. I feel Totally mislead.

    My gf had a scare yesterday as well , and called me . Her 17 was in a car accident near my home and i went there until she could get there. was a little scary when i turned the corner and the street was blocked in both directions, so i parked and walked, as i got closer i saw him on the ground, but all was ok thank GOD , but i know how she is when it comes to her kids and she came flying up the street, couldn’t even see me or hear she was so zoned, but all is well. so just hang in there JL ,do what you can one thinkg at a time, if that makes its easier. We are truly blessed.

    Bonni, I am so sorry you feel that way. . Even though the show is a crazy one you are right I try to listen to what people say and give them the best advice I can – from my heart. I don’t know what it is you didn’t tell me. I wish I did. I love two sided stories. The experience can be overwhelming and sometimes people end up not getting it all out or saying what they really need to say. I try to watch for that as best I can. I also tell my producers to get the truth – all of it. If you feel that didn’t happen I am sorry and continue my efforts to make sure they do it right but at the end of the day we have to rely on our litigants to tell their story.

    You could call the producer and ask if she or he will consider doing an update show. We do those on occasion. I can’t speak for what you hubby will say or do though and if it’s best for you to start this up again. We aren’t taping for quite some time though and by the time we do you might not want to even ask because you have moved on.

    Anyway again, I am sorry you didn’t feel you got your story out. Never my intent. I understand what happened at the airport and I am sorry your husband did that (I wish I could make people act right!). Whatever you do don’t live it. Follow up on the referral. That’s the most effective thing. Can’t fix decades worth of problems in 30 minutes what we try to do is get you started in the right direction.

    Good luck.

    Tamika, you need to go to your local family court or the court where you filed and find out how to get service by notice. Each state does it differently but there is usually a way to either serve legal notice in the newspaper or demonstrate certain avenues taken to reach the other party and then the court will let you do it without them. You can also call a local bar association and find out what attorney’s give pro bono (free) help.

    Good luck.

    Soooo, the producers prompted the litigant to go out in court and act a certain way. So I’m wondering if the people on the show who appear to act ghetto and trailer parkish, are they really that obnoxious at all. I mean maybe they are but if the people are being prompted by the producers to act a certain way that means the show is a little fake and more scripted than I thought. The couples act a fool and the dear judge comes out shining on top. Divorce Court let your divorcees be themselves!! Bonni you deserve a retake to tell your story and spray the show for their underhanded sneaky ways.

    Judge Lynn, glad to see you are on and popin. I love that color on you. Looks great.

    @Bonni, I feel your pain, but doing a retake would just make you relive the situation again which may end up worst. It’s in the pass so maybe it’s best to let it stay there. Unfortunately things did not go as you expected. Perhaps you should have done your home work before agreeing to go on the show and air you buisness. What I don’t understand is how could they (the producers) make you say or act in a way that you do not want. If you could not speak honestly about what lead to the divorce then why say anything at all. So many unanswered questions. Maybe you should not be so quick to boycott the show. What would that accomplish anyway? You said you believe Judge Lynn have a great deal of widsom, if that is realy so do not miss any opportunity to benefit from her wisdom. You know the truth about your life and thats what matters most. Lift up your head and move forward.

    Life is good. Enjoy every moment. Don’t live in the past
