Duke and Lauren Marcoccio

Recommended Posts

Not nice to call StarBaby brainless. I do agree with StarBaby that he really shouldn't have said that on national TV. I am sure he loves his daugher and at this point has accepted her but feeling unaccepted by your parents is very hard. He told the viewers that he had trouble accepting her lifestyle and did he also say they were estranged for a period of time?. I would have to play the show over again.

Like I mentioned before my daughter is gay and it was hard. I would never be angry at her for being gay. The struggle I had was with myself and the loss of my expectations of her. Love is unconditional. My love did not skip a beat. Not for one second.

DEP

YOU ARE TOTALLY RIGHT!!! AND OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN SEE BEYOND WHAT STARBABY SAW IN 6 WORDS!

MARTY - ALL IM SAYING IS THAT THEY WERE PROBALBY GOING THRU HUNDREDS OF INTERVIEWS - AND THOSE WERE THE WORDS THE EDITORS WANTED TO CHOOSE. ONE SENTENCE OUT OF A COUNTLESS NUMBER OF ONES. I GUESS IT MAKES FOR GOOD TV RIGHT????

singersong I just think Starbaby said SHE did not think that he should have publicly said he was disappointed. I think if I remember it was a look on the father's face when he said it that bothered me.

That being said I am sure he loves hers. I will keep my eye on them. They did seem like that had a good relationship.

And why did you choose to call Starbaby brainless and an idiot? I think you need to chose your words more carefully. Ya think?

So let me get the logic here...

I could say something really mean right now, but I've said thousands of sentences in the last few weeks. Since this just happened to be the one you hear you shouldn't take offense to it.

So unless most of the sentences are insults, one little one doesn't count.

Marty -

I'm sorry, it just upset me..I got a little heated, I'm sorry! I know there's no need for name calling on these forums, but I think peope should think before they say things......and I truely believe that there was plenty of footage to choose from when they edited the introductions.

I will be routing for them all the way, they are one of my favorite teams!!

My only point was that I disagreed with him saying something like that on television. I simply thought that was not cool.

well... maybe you should try practicing the whole "think before you say" thingy... it might come in handy for you. not only is there no need for name calling on this forum, its against the rules here. just a friendly headsup...

It's a fact some parents have a hard time dealing with their children's chosen lifestyles.

The producers of AR made the decision to pick a very vulnerable moment of this father and daughter to show us on this 1st show.

Maybe we'll see by the end how they became closer and more understanding.

I hope so.

My goodness. I guess I shouldn't post something and then work the rest of the day and go straight to a football game after work. LOL. Thanks to those who defended me in my absence. I certainly didn't mean to upset anyone to such a degree, just expressing my opinion and my reaction to a look that I saw cross Lauren's face when her dad said that. It made me feel bad for her. And, like many others, I hope they are able to get closer and understand one another better on the Race. And I think I did mention some good stuff the dad said at the end of the episode about his daughter and how well she did. If I didn't, I meant to.

(maybe I should be flattered that someone signed up as a member, just to attack little old me! :P )

No need to gang up on either poster. If anyone missed the look on the daughter's face, well, they must have been in another room. Editing and drama folks. Starbaby was stating her opinion and so was singer. No need to have a turf war. As for the demanded apology.......

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!

So, Wincha, people who are gay don't have families? :rolleyes: Diversity happens, I don't think you get to decide what it is. If you don't like it, then don't watch.

OK come on. . . I've been waiting for someone else to respond to this but I guess I'll have to be the one: ". . . shoving the gays down our throats . . ."? Am I the only one who sees the pun here?

Wonder when we will evolve to understanding that being gay is no more a "choice" than it is for those of us born "straight". Our genetic structure is simply a given at birth; ´╗┐prejudice, bigotry, intolerance, racism and homophopic attitudes are taught to us later. Based on views expressed in many online forums, those archaic classes are still being taught in homes throughout this country.

I think "Duke" represents the attitude of many parents who don't fully understand the concept but he loves his daughter and is willing to bridge his own gaps to heal their relationship. I'm betting he will learn to see the whole picture and be the richer human for it.

As for Lauren, a beautiful, intelligent, educated young woman, she is also to be applauded for not wanting to shut her father out of her life due to his professed attitude. She has obviously had a good upbringing at the hands of her parents and they will all benefit from that now. Armed with their love, honesty and openess, perhaps they will all grow and achieve a mature acceptance of each other.

Great post Dizzy!

Jersey, now that you mention it... :lol:

What I want to know, is how this team went from 2nd to what 5th? They let two other teams pass them on the road. Was the gas pedal on thier jeep not working? I know that the teams are supposed to follow the laws of the country they are in, so teams can't be doing 100 mph car races down the highway, but if a team is about to pass you, can't you step on the gas a little?
