Dear Margo “I had no idea Spanish was spoken in the US” Howard,

casinos in st augustine florida events august

I’m truly confused as to how you had no idea that Telemundo was an American station, I know here in Chicago, I see the news trucks out when somethings going on around town. Maybe that doesn’t happen where you’re from. But there are Hispanics there right. And even if it was a company that broadcast only to Mexico and you had some magic satellite dish where you could view it too, why wouldn’t they be interested in what’s going on in other countries, the same way that we watch the news about things happening in Greece, Japan, Israel, etc. The fact that you can chalk up an entire channel to just soap operas is quite disturbing seeing as most of the major TV stations in the US also play several soap operas over the course of a day (although that will be coming to an end soon for ABC). I don’t think your mother Ann Landers would have approved.

Thank goodness for Alba Mendiola for setting the record straight, here Alba have a Has It Together Award (been giving those out a lot lately) for handling the situation with grace and tact. Alba politely let her know that Telemundo is an American based company and that they’ve been reporting the news IN THE US of A for 25 years, and she’s been doing it for 10.

Some folks were calling you racist, I don’t think you’re racist, just an uninformed victim of white privilege. “Why would those Mexicans be interested in our politics, when all they do is watch soap operas all day.” So please Margo, get some culture in your life and Get Yo’self Together!



Nothing worse than an educated fool!

Whoo lawd, I’m gon get the good stuff out of the way first. The train conductor in this clip gets a Has It Together Award, she kept calm, cool, and collected, and remained professional even after this crazy woman touched her. A lesser person would have mopped the aisle with her.

Dear Hermon “I don’t like authority” Kaur Raju,


Sit yo monkey ass down somewhere and act like you have some sense. You over here yelling about how many different schools you’ve been to and how educated you are is not convincing anyone of those points. An educated person rarely has to tell another person that they are educated. It should be apparent from the way they carry themselves. Obviously you have no home training because even if you weren’t being that loud and obnoxious and spewing obscenities (which I doubt), all you would have had to do when asked to be quiet is say…..Ok, sorry about that, and move on with your life. Not go on some tirade about how you’re not a hoodlum, and how educated you are. Standing up here yelling about how great you are like you solved the mysteries of the universe or something. So here have a seat in the corner, and from now on ride your bike to work. Or do you even have a job, because your LinkedIn account sure didn’t list one. Although I’m sure because of how unfair the world is you’ll probably get an excellent job and make 10 times the amount of money I will. UGH.

If you end up on Celebrity Apprentice because of this I’m going to be pissed. Get Yo’Self Together!


Thank you for putting us all to shame.

Dear Ernestine “I Rock Buff & Stuff With My Abs Of Steel” Shepherd,

Bravo! You look amazing! Thanks for providing yet another example of “black don’t crack.” Your story I’m sure has inspired so many people. You’ve even inspired me to get into some other shape other than round. For those of you who haven’t heard, Ernestine is currently the Guinness Book World record holder for oldest female bodybuilder. She’s 74 years old, and has obviously aged like a fine wine.

Ernestine is a grandmother who has been married for 54 years, and the article said that her husband makes all her meals for her and runs her errands so she can train, if that ain’t sweet, supportive, and loving I don’t know what is.

Ernestine Shepherd & Husband - Aren't they adorable?

Mrs. Shepherd also teaches fitness classes at her local church & community centers. So not only has she gotten herself together, but she’s helping others get themselves together too. So here’s to you Mrs. Shepherd, you get a Has It Together Award!

Loudest Public Transportation Conversation EVER!

June 12th, 2011 by Dianne Vonwhooseeay

Dear Random “I don’t have an inside voice” Stranger,
This is a first on the Get Yo’self Together Blog, I’ve never had to put a non-celeb/non-politician on blast like this. But you sir, sir, SHUT UP! I can’t believe that you sat your ass on this train and talked that loud about that many triflin’ stereotypical topics. You should be ashamed of yourself!

Number one it had to be about 900 degrees outside. Too damn hot to be talking loud, and there were at least 10 people on the train who were also in the same state of disbelief as I was. I mean DAMN! I’m pretty sure I gave you about 10 dirty looks that you were oblivious to.

I must admit that I did laugh a few times between you being entirely too excited about cheap chicken and someone being bust in the head with a 40oz bottle and a crate, but that was more laughing at and not with, seeing as you didn’t seem to find these situations humorous. Pimps and prostitutes, I mean just too much. I had to leave the train. I think you got Lakeysha Beard beat, so sir, once I talk to the proper athorities, you will be relieved of your phone in public places privileges, until you of course show that you can GET YO’SELF TOGETHER!

So readers, without further ado, the first official GYT video!

Keep your frankfurter in your pants dammit!

Dear Representative Anthony “Bird Chest Ooops was that a @ instead of a D?” Weiner,

Nasty Self!

Nasty Self!

What the hell is wrong with you? I mean you’re last name is Weiner, and it’s not even pronounced whiner, so that puts a lot of pressure on you from the start I’m sure, because some people haven’t gotten past 4th grade in their minds. So for you to have this big of a public showing of your own wiener is just like slicing your leg open and jumping in a pool of rabies infested sharks. (I don’t think sharks can get rabies, but if they could, that’s exactly what you did).

And to top it all off, you’ve only been married a split second. Annnnd you’re talking about that not only did you send this stupid picture, but you’ve had at least 6 other online relationships “that your wife knew about”. Reading about your story and background, I was like this is wonderful, a Jew and a Muslim in love and married, and even in the same filed, what a wonderful story. How can you go and do that to her.

Oh and don’t even get me started on the gum chewing single mom, that came forward to spill her guys about your little virtual fling. Miss ma’am, why are you on national government chewing gum during an interview? Also why are you flirting and carrying on with a married man, shouldn’t you be focused on your child? What’s she going to think when she gets older and looks back and old dusty YouTube videos of you? Is that how she should act when she gets older? UGH! What about the children!

And speaking of children, now it comes out that your wife is pregnant, I know she has to be extra super duper pissed right about now. Now she’s definitely stuck with you. No wonder she’s in Africa with Hillary, maybe she’ll find a nice guy there who won’t be a douche.

Mmmmhm blame the geeks.

Mmmmhm blame the geeks.

Now see, had all this happened, and you actually admitted to it when it first occurred, I probably wouldn’t be writing this letter to you. But noooo, that would be too much like right, you had to go and blame a hacker, and lie for an entire week.

I first saw this video while shelling out 104 dollars for my stupid license plate renewal. (I actually kinda believed you for a second).

Before holding a sad press conference and saying, um yeah I did it, and yes that was my Weiner wiener in the picture. And now Megan is talking about you even sent some nekkid wiener pictures, seriously? You didn’t think that you would ever get caught? I guess at least you didn’t sleep with them (I hope that’s true).

And then it gets even deeper, you’re also messing around with a porn star too virtually. (Bet so many guys dream of that.) But then you try to coach her to lie for you. Sheesh, now there’s going to be an investigation to see if you broke any laws. I think if you didn’t for instance let your PR people coach the porn star, then you can keep your job, but if you did break the law then you need to get to stepping. And at least your not a huge hypocrite like those who are all about dictating family values and preserving the “sanctity of marriage” while doing all types of nasty stuff, far worse that what you’ve done so far. Tapping on bathroom floors, just nasty. But anyways, I think that Huma needs to deal with the rest of this. Of course now hussies are going to be coming out of the woodwork to put your business on front street. I hope you don’ t have any overlap with Tiger’s hoes. I really hope Huma makes you miserable for a while, if she does decide to forgive you. So sir, please take a moment to GET YO’SELF TOGETHER! Please don’t let anything else crazy come out so that I have to write you another letter!
