Oct 14th 12:35 PM: I agree...she was kicked out because she cannot dance...his sexual orientation has nothing to do with this and he should not feel that it did. He's a wonderful dancer and choreographer. In my opinion, she should have been the first to go because she just cannot dance and looked clumpsy, no matter what he tried to teach her.
Sep 13th 9:56 PM: This is so full wrong information...THIS IS what Carol McCain's bio says:
.....John McCain would later say, "My marriage's collapse was attributable to my own selfishness and immaturity more than it was to Vietnam, and I cannot escape blame by pointing a finger at the war. The blame was entirely mine." Carol McCain would later say: "The breakup of our marriage was not caused by my accident or Vietnam or any of those things. I don't know that it might not have happened if John had never been gone. I attribute it more to John turning 40 and wanting to be 25 again than I do to anything else." John McCain's biographer, Robert Timberg believes that "Vietnam did play a part, perhaps not the major part, but more than a walk-on." According to Carol, her husband's five-year captivity in Vietnam had left him wanting to "make up for lost time," and John put it this way: "I had changed, she had changed....People who have been apart that much change." Ross Perot would later say, " After he came home, he walked with a limp, she [Carol McCain] walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona [Cindy McCain, his current wife] and the rest is history."  Carol’s three children were initially upset with John McCain about the divorce, but later reconciled.
The divorce settlement accorded Carol McCain alimony, child support, houses in Virginia and Florida, and lifelong financial support for her ongoing medical treatments resulting from the 1969 automobile accident. John McCain and Hensley were married on May 17, 1980.
Despite the divorce, Carol McCain has remained on good terms with John McCain, and has supported him in all his subsequent political campaigns. She refused to discuss her marriage with an election opponent of McCain's in 1982 who was seeking negative information about him, telling the opponent that "a gentleman never would have called." She supports her ex-husband's 2008 presidential campaign, and told The Mail on Sunday in June 2008 that she was not bitter and that, "He’s a good guy. We are still good friends. He is the best man for president."
She became a personal assistant to Nancy Reagan in fall 1979, working with her on Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign, and then worked on the 1980 Republican National Convention. She was director of the 1981 Reagan inaugural ball, and as the Reagan administration began, she handled scheduling for the First Lady and the Reagan children.
In 1981, she became Director of the White House Visitors Office. There she planned tours and dealt with the pleas of different groups for the limited slots available. She also dealt with demands from Washington officials, including a dispute regarding tour slots between Nancy Reagan and New York Congressman Thomas Downey. About the pressures of her job, she said cheerfully: "I'm always in tears, but I love the job. I'm really having a ball." During the early 1980s recession she declared that the White House tours were fully booked even when other Washington attractions saw declining attendance; her office processed well over one million visits a year. Between 1981 and 1986, she greatly expanded the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, adding participatory activities and doubling the size of the crowds attending. The Washington Post likened her "extravaganza-loving" event style to that of Cecil B. DeMille. She was also involved in planning South Lawn State Arrival Ceremonies, as well as a national Christmas celebration.
She left the White House Visitors Office position in January 1987, to join Philadelphia-based We the People 200, Inc., which was the organization planning the celebration for the 200th anniversary of the United States Constitution that year. She was named programming director, part of We the People 200's senior management team. The bicentennial project was already troubled by lack of corporate financial sponsorship and persistent internal conflicts; the high salaries of McCain and other senior staff came under some criticism, but were defended by the organization's president as justified based upon age and experience.
By 1990, she was a spokesperson for Washington, Inc., a large event planning company. During 1991, she was a spokesperson for the Desert Storm Homecoming Foundation, which held a $12 million victory celebration and memorial in Washington in June 1991 following the conclusion of the Gulf War and Operation Desert Storm. She later worked in press relations for the National Soft Drink Association in Washington.
In 2003, Carol McCain retired and moved to a bungalow in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She continues to have difficulty walking, as a result of her accident four decades earlier.
Sooo, as you can see, Carol McCain has not let grass grow under her feet as you want people to believe...and SHE'S STILL FRIENDS WITH HER EX-HUSBAND and more importantly, FEELS HE'S THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB!!!!!! I would have never thought to Google her name until I read all the hate you wrote here.
AAANNNNDDDD....TED SAMPLEY IS NOT A LEADING CAMPAIGNER FOR OUR VETERAN'S RIGHTS EITHER...I AM A RETIRED ARMY VIETNAM VETERAN....YOU ALSO HAVE THAT WRONG...HE IS A TROUBLE MAKING ACTIVIST....Sooooo.... I suggest you investigate thoroughly Mr. Sampley's background and history of spreading outrageous slander and other disreputable behavior before inadvertently lending him or his allegations any credibility.
Nov 10th 10:16 PM: She was definitely very sincere. I have always liked her and it's plain to see that her mother's rejection still hurts her deeply. This is something one never forgets, and when the rejection is from a mother, it is always ten times worse than from anyone else. I'm sure her mother remembers her now and is no longer "afraid" of any beatings and comes forward because her daughter is famous...I'm sure she thinks she can reap some of the benefits. One can forgive, but we are human, and forgetting is a completely different thing. When Kellie gets married and has children of her own, it will all come back again, but magnified a thousand times.
May 27th 10:08 AM: Check out my pipes, they are good for talking ONLY, not singing, but I'll pretend cause they let me.
May 27th 10:03 AM: Thank goodness the 15 minutes are over, at least I hope so. Put a wind machine on anyone to make them look famous, but it didn't help the singing at all. Sanjaya dear, the little ones think you are cute, but please, don't think you can sing. Pursue the modeling and forget the singing.
May 24th 9:45 PM: I agree with Post #2 amd #14, except I already know that I will definitely NOT watch when Jay leaves. Can't stand Conan. Have tried to watch him a couple of times to see if it's an acquired taste, but can't make it past his jumping around. I loved Johnny and have always liked Jay. Two different men, two different styles. Will miss Jay when he leaves, guess we'll get more sleep then since there won't be anyone to watch. Still can't believe they are going to throw the show away by giving it to someone so silly, not funny or entertaining.
