SHARK TANK DOESN’T WELCOME WOMEN

We knew there was a reason why we didn’t like Shark Tank. That’s the ABC business-reality series in which a panel of five venture capitalists are pitched potentially profitable new ideas by inventors. There’s only one woman on that panel of five, and that’s real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran. Barbara feels women are not adequately represented on the panel and having an even number of both sexes would make for better TV. Producers, specifically one named Clay Newbill, believe that women would “argue with one another and fight” and it might become snark tank. We agree with Barbara that THAT is an absurd, insulting, and antiquated notion. Amazingly, Newbill assumes women have bigger egos than men when, in fact, they are proven to be more cooperative and less competitive. Misogynistic producers like Newbill need to be retrained, and Barbara might be the woman to do it.

    Obviously Janet does not watch the show or have access to Google. Lori Greiner is also a panelist.

    Complete agreement with you, Janet. I like the idea of the show but hate sexism. Ergo, me no watch.

    Looks like a Shark Tank. …..maybe a little dogfish shark tank. The name itself bleeds of aging testosterone. Just a little boys club that tries to make themselves look more important than they actually are. Weeding out the women makes them feel powerful.

    Bet they have big long guns and big long boats to compensate for….for their…for their small mindedness. 🙂 lol

    I love the show, regardless . As far as snarky bickering , the boys do plenty of it…and that’s when it’s the most fun !

    I agree Mrs. Walt. I suspect they also drive Hummers.

    Agree with Denise. These out of touch old guys are Neanderthals looking to hang onto their male privilege via the old boys club. No wonder they are intimidated and afraid of women.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
