Something I never thought I'd say....

I am so very proud of Simon Cowell right now! So proud he made me blub over my baked potato, much to the Hubsters amusement.


He was on Oprah, who featured a 3 year old girl with Cancer and the very aggressive daily chemo' and radiation treatments she is taking. Her parents have to take her either 100 miles or 4 hours from home for these treatments. The mothers insurance through work meets the medical bills, but one of them has to be with her constantly. So they had lost one income totally and still had a mortgage, bills and huge gas bills to pay.

Simon stepped up to the plate and wrote a personal check to pay-off their $162,000 mortgage and also commented he is now her Guardian Angel, so if they need anything he will help them.

I am sure some cynics will think 'oh that's nothing to him' which is true, but you know what, he didn't have to do it. Apart from appearing like he has a bigger heart than he lets on, we could see no other advantage for him in making this gesture.

Way to go Simon.

So right, Sarah. I don't think he's a bad person. He's brutally honest in his criticism on DWTS, but I usually agree with him! It's a wonderful thing he's doing for this family.

Not sure what I was thinking.
