I`m not sure how to get this across - I can`t find the proper venue. My gripe is when Barbara is on the view, it becomes the `Barbara Hour` Pleeeeese, let`s have a little less of Barbara and especially her constant looking into the camera. Enough is enough.

That LeRoy name would not be so Popular Still, had it not been for his first wife, Actress Edna Murphy constantly pushing and helping him to succeed. When he became a success, he Dumped her. I think that I would be ashamed, I wonder if he was? I doubt it.
