Losse Lips Luann

There are those who employ the use of internal filters. They think…make a decision…then act. Then there are others who don’t think…let things slip and fly…then react. Whoops. They are the filter-less.

And that would be Luann Haley of Buffalo, New York. If she had a filter in place…somewhere between her brain and her mouth…she never would have said OUTLOUD to the President of the United States of America: “You’re a hottie with a smokin’ little body.” That actually would have been the perfect thing to say...when meeting the the brew -haha house she frequents on Tuesdays.

So that was the best (or worst) Loose Lips Luann could come up with last week when she had the chance to meet the President, who had stopped by a local wings joint in Buffalo. The President’s reaction to her comment was good-natured. I’m guessing he was just probably happy she didn’t yell: “You’re in hot and smokin’ water with your body of policies.”

The President laughed, gave her hug…and said “we need to take a picture to send this back to Michelle.” So then filter-less egghead Luann yelled “Eat your heart out, Michelle.” (With egg all over her face, Loose Lips Luann still had room enough for both feet in her mouth.)

Luann has gotten a lot of media attention and has been the butt of jokes on David Letterman and Jay Leno. She said she was just trying to be funny. I suppose Leno and Letterman try that on a nightly basis and aren’t always successful either.

Probably Luann’s biggest regret is that her comments humiliated her teenage daughter. Hell knows the wrath of a teenager slammed. Teens are normally embarrassed by their parents…when they are just barely breathing…let alone yelling out cat calls to the Commander-in-Chief of the United States.

Luann has received some nasty internet press by being referred to as a "homewrecker" and the “Buffalo Cougar”…which has to sound better than being called the “Buffalo Buffarillo.”


Loose Lips Luann has refused to appear on a national TV morning show. Whew. Finally a woman accused of being a homewrecker…who isn’t looking for her 15 minutes of fame.
