Bill Parcells: Show Some Respect for Menopausal Women

Former Dallas Cowboys Coach Bill Parcells is going through what he calls “male menopause. In a recent article written by sports writer Michael David Smith, Parcells is quoted as saying: "I've quit being ashamed of what I am. I'm a guy who loves football. ... You call it, maybe, a male menopause, when you realize you're no longer ashamed of what you are. ...”

For my menopausal sisters who don’t know who Bill Parcells is---all you need to know is he’s the football coach who couldn’t get it up enough to motivate his former Cowboys to the level they are now. Now he’s apparently headed to Miami to put together a Super Bowl caliber Team for Miami Dolphins fans. But he says "I don't want thugs and hoodlums on the team…"

My question to you Bill is, do you think all women were ashamed of themselves BEFORE they entered into menopause? Also, you say you don’t want thugs and hoodlums on your team----but are you aware that a woman in menopause would have absolutel…

Baby Boomer Celebrity Gets “Hot” on TV

R&B Singer Patti LaBelle is going through menopause and she let all of America know it during her appearance on Thursday night’s finale of NBC’s “Clash of the Choirs.” When asked what she thought of the dueling choirs, the first words out of Patti’s mouth were “Honey, I’m in menopause!” She went on to say the sweat pouring down her face at times was a combination of hot flashes and feeling the spirit.

Patti “Baby Boomer Diva” LaBelle gets my vote for demonstrating that you can still be classy even when you get a little hot under the collar. If she had never mentioned the “M” word, you certainly wouldn’t have been able to tell by the way she sang with her hand-picked amateur choir. Menopause or not, Patti never seems to let it get in the way of her powerful singing ability.

Nick Lachey’s choir may have been declared the champions on the NBC Special but Patti LaBelle is the true champion for menopausal women everywhere. Thank you Patti and welcome to the Baby Boomer Diva Web …
