C'mon, Harvey Levin. His spray tan has been looking less orange as of late. Harvey doesn't have a natural sun tan. If it's natural you don't look orange one day and then brown the next and call it a tan.

Umm, the afro-american lady on your show says that Beyonce choosing to lighten her skin is "self-hatetred"...then why does your lady there change the way her hair is naturally?

This is going to seem impolitic, but what about all the black women who straighten their hair? It's prevalent. Are they self-loathing?

Not only did she come forward after signing with a drug company, but I saw her son on The Chew last week. He said he had a show coming out where he puts a healthy spin on her recipe. So, she made sure to set him up with a show to spin this before going public. (He is annoying and has no talent)

Novartis is a $135 billion company, I doubt Paula Deen is going to have a huge impact.

RE: Paula Dean--Is anyone surprised that she has diabetes? Every time I read one of her recipes I feel like I need to be tested for diabetes, let alone if I ate something made from one of her recipes.

It's a burger, in the video she describes it as bacon, fried egg, burger patty and glazed donuts.

That pic of Beyonce that u guys compared the pic to was the dangerously in love album cover and she herself said they caked on bronzer on her for that shoot so that is not her natural color! I am very light skinned n i ran into her before n she wasn't wearing any makeup and she was waaay lighter than me! it also depends on the light around her! I mean makeup can make a big difference! BTW her legs are darker than her chest so its obvious its the picture and contrast of the light! her hair is lighter though so that may make it seem lighter!

that Beyonce pic of her dangerously in love album cover is not her natural color! she herself said they put on a lot of bronzer on her n that she even had on the photographers pants! but anyways im very light skinned and if i take pictures in certain lighting i will look very pale! i have seen beyonce up close in an airport n she had no makeup on n she was way lighter than i thought! lighter than i am so.. if u look at her in her DC era she is very light skinned! makeup can do almost anything these days! even on tyra, Tyra said she was usually lighter than her n she said they put on bronzer on her! its no big deal she is not bleaching her skin ppl!

WHAT? HUH? WHY DO WHITE WOMEN WEAR PERMS, OR TAN, OR WEAR MAKE-UP? MOST WOMEN DON’T WEAR THEIR HAIR NATURALLY. NOT SURE WHAT THIS HAS TO DO WITH THE TOPIC AT HAND.
