Studio 5: Pitiful Men

Check out yesterday’s segment on Studio 5. We talked about demoralized men and their power hungry wives.



  1. Annie, I was able to find this clip yesterday and really appreciated it. My husband and I have been going through rough patches pretty frequently lately and a great deal of it is stemmed from the fact that we both are currently not working (I’m a stay-at-home mom and he’s been looking for a job, no luck yet though) and I have expectations that if he is not at work, he can help out equally with household chores. I have been expecting that he will take it upon himself to clean the kitchen once a week, do the dishes as much as I do, take care of our daughter so I can get a break, … you get the picture! It was really refreshing to watch this clip. I am really going to apply the concept of looking at the whole, not the part that’s driving me up a wall! Much appreciated advise! Oh, and I absolutely LOVED you’re attitude about your husband wearing the pants but letting you feel like you did! It gave me a good giggle.

  2. Thanks for posting the link. I was at the library with my kiddos, wishing I was watching my funny Valentine. (I’ll bet you NEVER get that, eh?)

    You looked great! Love that cardigan. AND you were funny, as always. AND you offered a great point of view. AND I loved the discussion in general. AND I can’t wait to see you again tonight! It’s like we’re real friends!

  3. Crazy item #1: I loved that commercial!

    Crazy item #2: I agree that the media have taken to portraying men as bumbling fools. And I think it’s a tool of the adversary: Make women feel like being a homemaker is equal to servitude, and make men feel like they can’t do anything right, and you’ve got a family coming unraveled.

    Not at all crazy item #…um, would that be 3 or are we back to 1?: Men shouldn’t expect their wives to be their mommies. And wives shouldn’t treat their husbands like they’re 5 year olds. If either party is doing this, they need to change. You were right, especially at the very beginning, when you talked about equality and partnership and balance. That’s key.

    NAACI #…oh never mind: You looked so dang cute up there. Can’t wait to see you in May!

    (guess what, everyone? Annie’s coming to visit ME in June. That’s right. Me. Be jealous. Do it. Right now. Be jealous right now!!)

  4. Funny discussion! Annie you look so cute PG!

  5. You did a terrific job! And you look adorable.

    My husband and I have had numerous discussions on how I refuse to nag him. I am not his mom and when I ask him to do something I shouldn’t have to ask him more than once…maybe twice. We are still working on this…

  6. I loved that segment.

    And I second what DeNae said.
