And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

War of the Roses - Denise & Jackson

I'm sorry it took me so long to post this week's issue of War of the Roses. I will definitely post it on it's regularly scheduled day, next Thursday.  

If you're not familiar with the "War of the Roses", then I suggest you read up on my first issue, here.  I wrote a detailed description on how it actually works.

In this morning's call, Roula took on the fictional role of Penelope from Plants and Flowers.com.  Ryan later mentioned that he almost broke up laughing, because she used that off-the-wall name.  I'll have to admit I thought the same thing too. LOL.

Responding to an email from Denise, Roula and Ryan began their regular weekly segment of Roula and Ryan's Roses by asking the caller a few questions...

Denise's informs them that her 8-yr-old daughter made a recent discovery that freaked her out.  She's been married for ten years to her husband, Jackson.  He has a terrific job, and also goes to school.  He's more like an "afternoon" dad, she says.

Well... her daughter and some friends got into his car after school, and while on the drive home found some women's underwear on the floor.  Daddy's quick explanation to their daughter was that "mommy" had left them there when she was doing laundry.

One day, daughter confronts mommy, and tells her, "mommy, I didn't know you wore the 'string kind'." My first reaction would be, "Really?..Oh...Really?? That mother fucking bastard!!!" LMAO...  Nope, that wasn't the case...  

This apparently didn't push Denise to confront her husband, until today.  She says that she has turned a blind eye over their 10 year marriage, because she didn't want to do anything, but raise their daughter.  Once their daughter was born 8 years ago, everything else seemed pointless.  Denise continued by saying she felt so humiliated after finding this out from her daughter, and the possibility the neighborhood kids went and told their parents.

Roula and Ryan share their thoughts on the matter, go over the rules of the "War," and ask her again if she really wants to go through with this, because regardless of the outcome, Jackson will have to know she made the call to the radio station to trick him.

So how does this battle end?  Will Jackson send the flowers to Denise?  Is there another woman?

the war rages on....
