Dr. Laura: Has anyone ever called into her show?

I no longer drive or have satellite radio so I don't get to hear the angry Dr. who is sometimes mean and sometimes very sage.

Has anyone ever called her for advice? She is a very no nonsense woman who does not believe in pity and wants people to take personal responsibility. I sometimes wish others would underscore how important it is for everyone to be personally responsible for their actions.

R30 She later dumped dumped Judaism because she wasn't feelin' the love.

[quote]In her August 5 radio broadcast Dr. Laura Schlessinger, one of America's most listened-to radio hosts and high-profile Orthodox Jews, publicly distanced herself from her adopted faith claiming that she no longer found Judaism fulfilling. She informed her 12 million listeners that while she still "considers" herself Jewish, "my identifying with this entity and my fulfilling the rituals, etc., of the entity-that has ended."

[quote]Of her conversion to Orthodox Judaism, Schlessinger said: "I felt that I was putting out a tremendous amount toward that mission, that end, and not feeling a return, not feeling connected, not feeling that inspired."

[quote]But she really turned the knife when she praised Christians at the expense of Jews.

[quote]"By and large the faxes from Christians have been very loving, very supportive. From my own religion, I have either gotten nothing, which is 99% of it, or two of the nastiest letters I have gotten in a long time. I guess that's my point-I don't get much back. Not much warmth coming back."

[quote]She added that she was envious of the Christian faith, and hinted at embracing it. "I have envied all my Christian friends who really, universally, deeply feel loved by God. They use the name Jesus when they refer to God... that was a mystery, being connected to God." "Time and time again" she was moved by listeners who wrote and described that they had "joined a church, felt loved by God, and that was my anchor."

Cheers R35. I don't think giving up Orthodoxy, or even straying from one's religion is tantamount to self loathing either. Many individuals feel proudly connected to their identity as Jews from an historic, cultural, or ethnic perspective without being religious. I often hear Americans accusing gay men as self loathing too, and I find many to be reaching.

The man who sold the nude pics was Bill balance a big name in Southern California radio in the 60s and 70s. She would call in to his show and talk/debate with him. When they met in person she screwed him and she was still married to husband #1.

Ballance took the nude pics of her and forgotten about them. When they were at some radio media convention in the 90s he went up to speak to her and she blew him off. He sold the pics for $50k and the rest is history.

For a very short while back in the 90's, it looked like she was going to become the Queen of All Media. Every trashy self-help book she wrote went to #1 on the bestseller lists, and her radio show garnered huge ratings, playing in practically every market in the country.

She made the huge mistake of wanting to take her schtick to daytime television, however, and that was the beginning of the end. She was very anti-gay, and for some reason, that was allowed on AM talk radio, but teh gays would not stand for it being spewed on daytime TV. There were protests and boycotts of advertisers even before the first episode aired, and when it finally did debut, it was a disaster. See, not only did Dr. Laura have a face for radio, but without her hate-the-gays rants to fall back on (her bosses evidently told her to shut her big fat yap on that particular subject), and leery of provoking any further controversy whatsoever, her TV show was horribly boring. It didn't work. She couldn't do what she did best: be mean and hateful, and as a result, her show sucked. Within a few weeks, it was dumped in a lot of markets, and moved to ungodly after-midnight/early-morning time slots in others, until the plug was pulled. I don't remember exactly, but I think it was probably a total of about 6-8 weeks before it was cancelled, and she was forced to slink back to radio with her tail between her legs. It was a humiliating defeat for someone whose career had only known success, and who had fancied herself a "prophet".

She continued on with her radio show, with a couple of minor controversies popping up once in a while (I remember she pissed off the Tourette's Syndrome people at one point), until the infamous "N-word" rant led to her quitting her show.

A few years later, she re-emerged at Sirius, making her a colleague of her nemesis Howard Stern. She'd once claimed to have turned down a lucrative radio gig because she refused to be employed by the same people who employed him...but when push came to shove, she did what was best for Dr. Laura, "morality" be damned.

She's still there. She NEVER says a peep about teh gays, though. Hasn't for years. Bitch learned her lesson.

One thing I will say in her favor is that she is good at what she does. If your thing is listening to a shrew harangue adoring, syncophantic callers and impose her worldview onto their problems, solving them in mere minutes, she's your girl.

by Anonymousreply 4106/23/2020

R30 she was a hard core Jew for almost a decade before ditching it because Jewish women were mean to her.

She was invited to a Jewish business women’s event in Dallas where she would give a speech and do a question and answer session. They paid her fee and put her up in a nice hotel. She changed hotels 5 times before settling on the most expensive one in Dallas. She then insulted the women by going after some who were business professionals and refusing to answer questions that she was scheduled for and agreed to do. An article came out it and she whining about Jewish women not being nice to her. She always paints herself as a victim.

R42 As a secular Jew myself, I always knew she was full of shit, and her Judaism was all for show. See, she NEVER shut up about it. Every chance she got to mention it, she would. She would say things like "I'm a nice Jewish girl", in a faux-Jewish/Brooklyn accent which I always found SO annoying, because she wasn't raised Jewish, she was a fucking convert, and it was her FATHER who was Jewish, and she repeatedly said that she wasn't raised as a Jew. Or if she took the day off for a Jewish holiday and they played a re-run show or a best-of compilation show, they would always announce "Dr. Laura is taking the day off in observance of Purim (or Yom Kippur, or Rosh Hashana, or whatever)". It didn't surprise me one bit when she turned her back on it, because most actual Jews saw right through her and couldn't stand her. I'm only surprised she never publicly converted to evangelical Christianity (that's who makes up most of her fan base), but I bet it's because her crazy son would probably disown her. See, she dragged her husband and kid along on this Orthodox Jewish ego trip of hers, so she's kind of stuck.

[quote]Schlessinger has described her childhood environment as unloving and unpleasant, and her family as dysfunctional. She has ascribed some of the difficulty to extended family rejection of her parents' mixed faith Jewish-Catholic marriage.[13] Schlessinger said her father was "petty, insensitive, mean, thoughtless, demeaning, and downright unloving". She described her mother as a person with "pathological pride", who "was never grateful", who "would always find something to criticize," and who "constantly expressed disdain for men, sex, and love".

R42 It would appear she turned to Judaism for all the wrong reasons IMHO. Expecting certain things from any religion can be troublesome. It seems as if she would have done better sticking with a Conservative synagogue, as she converted under a Conservative rabbi. For all its dichotomies, Conservative Judaism can be very egalitarian, and working women can feel comfortable in such congregations. Why she became a BT seems like a bit of a stretch.

In the Orthodox branch, women like her, especially at the time, would have been highly scrutinised. Not so much for the working per se, but the type of job which brings attention. Her big mouth and judgemental attitude also isn't in keeping with Orthodox women. The gossip and name-calling she engaged in certainly isn't done. It's a very serious sin: Lashon hard isn't taken lightly. It's a cause to tame one's self-control verbally; something Dr. Laura was incapable of.

I'm not at all surprised she didn't stick with Judaism. She was looking for adulation and an easy path, and that's not what being a BT is all about. She's suffering serious psychopathy, but I don't believe it hinges on self-loathing as a Jew. She could have easily became Catholic, and that may have been a better fit for her. If truly self loathing, why convert in the first place? It doesn't explain the enigma she is today. I could see conversion to Reform Judaism, but not the path she chose for herself.

by Anonymousreply 5906/23/2020

R57 It probably has something to do with her drive, and her tendency to want to over-achieve. It wasn't about spirituality, for her, conversion was a goal to be conquered...so of course she was going to go for the hardest, the most rigorous, the most demanding form of Judaism. It literally was about her wanting to be "holier than thou". I remember listening to her yammer on one time about her religion, and she was saying how only Orthodox were "real Jews". Reform and Conservative were fine, but they weren't Jews. They shouldn't call themselves Jews, according to her, they should come up with another name. I'm literally listening to a convert lecturing to me that I, a born Jew, am not a Jew.

by Anonymousreply 6006/23/2020

R60 Your interpretations of her behaviour are spot on... That competition to be a "super-Jew" fits with her. There are those types who become BTs. They ordinarily have better self-control, and a "lay of the land" so to speak. It's no wonder they never warmed up to her!

Despite labelling others as victims, and expressing disdain for them, it's in keeping with her hypocritical nature to claim she became victimised by her Judaism, and specifically other Jewish women. I keep thinking of her poor Italian momma... cast aside as she was.

It was excruciatingly painful listening to her. Those Rethuglican talking points run roughshod over everything. It's so transparent. She isn't or wasn't there to help people, she's there to sow seeds of controversy and hate. It's painfully obvious she has no skills in conducting any sort of therapy. She cannot even validate the caller's feelings, she can only deny them, though she was not there, and has no business excusing the context, and claiming the lady has a chip on her shoulder.

Now what exactly did you enjoy about her R62? I'm hoping because she was theatre of the absurd.

She was a huge hypocrite in so many ways. She started dating her second while he was still married and broke up his marriage and family. He had 3 kids and she never said a thing about them on her show like they didn’t exist. She used to call Deryk and other children little bunchkins but switched to kidlet when she quit being a Jew. She lived with her husband for 9 years before she married him.

She was also against ivf and fertility treatments but had to get them to conceive her son as she had had her tubes tied and her husband was older.

She shit on her mother for years but her mother never shot back at her. My mom occasionally listens to her show and She does revisionist history with her parents now and has said on her show they were good parents.

She hated her sister who is a decade younger because she was attractive and they haven’t spoken in 40 years.

In the mid 90s her and her son went into a skate shop and her son picked up a skateboarding magazine. It wasn’t pornographic but the language was a bit rough. She went on her show named the store and claimed they were selling pornography to kids. The store owner was interviewed on tv and showed that his store didn’t sell porn and thought she owed him an apology. Dr. Laura sues the guy for defamation claiming he lied about her on tv.

She is the ultimate cunt, and I have to tune in every now and then to get a dose. My big question is: who are these poor people who call in thinking they are going to get an affirming or helpful experience? I can count on one hand when she was actually kind/helpful. One case surprisingly involved a caller in a lesbian relationship— she was quite positive. Of course these are the rare exceptions. Do the callers simply need a catharsis? What other way than to be shrieked at by a harpy in a vulnerable point in your life. I suppose you can equate her callers to people who seek meaning in oppressive religions

This guy came in same time, same day once a week and ordered the same exact thing. One time I asked if he wanted the usual. He said NO I will have... And recited the exact usual breakfast order. So weird.

Well, the old cunt endures via satellite radio, Sirius XM. Originally, she was on AM radio. In 2010, she used racial slurs, uttering the “n” word 11 times on air, on her radio show.

Of course, President Obama was criticized. She claimed that black people only voted for him because he’s “half black.”

The show was cancelled after she issued a hollow apology. This was in 2010.

She ran to Sirius XM, wanting to assert her “First Amendment” rights. Her show is still on-air. It should and must be cancelled. The fact it’s a subscription service is irrelevant. Akin to tearing down Confederate monuments, her show should be cancelled.

Dr. Laura and Howard Stern can say whatever they want on satellite radio, as long as the ratings are good, they are safe.

Thank you, R94. Simply and perfectly summarized. I was struggling to figure out the appeal, but you’re totally right.
