She is so heartfelt, caring and compassionate which is what makes her a terrific advocate for victims of abuse. - Amy
I'm struggling to find the right words to explain why I'm such a fan of Judge Jeanine. At first it was because she's an animal lover like me. But then, not long ago it changed. I'm afraid if I'm not careful I will offend someone. Sharing my truth is a bit awkward but I hope through any discomfort readers will relate or at least understand my feelings. I'm white and when I was growing up white women in my life were either passive, mean or distant. That was my experience. But black women were the strong and compassionate ones. As a fan of some strong black celebrities I sometimes feel like an outsider. There seemed to be a connection between people of the same race that I just couldn't understand. That was until I did some further reading online about Judge Jeanine, a woman of Lebanese decent. I didn't know Lebanese were white. At that moment I understood why there is some connection between races. A white woman who stood up and fought for the abused, seriously? I was blown away! There is comfort in the knowledge that she was out there protecting girls like me. I was sexually abused throughout my childhood & my cries for help were ignored. I felt a connection to Judge Jeanine at that moment. But more importantly, there was a rebirth of a trust that had died in me a long time ago.
It's been a few years now that we've been interacting with Judge Jeanine. I jokingly sign some of my tweets "red headed stepchild" because I'm pretty good at saying the wrong thing. But she's been a good sport about it. Judge Jeanine calls those of us who have been with her a long time her "posse". It's an honor to be part of Pirro's Posse! These days when we say we love her, it's for real not the typical fan speak.
If you watched Judge Jeanine's court show you know her personality. No one ever wants her to say "shame on you." to them. That is a phrase that makes my head spin. I'd rather be told to "bleep off" But we all want to hear, "I'm proud of you." You know the recipient did something really great and she's impressed. I imagine it can't be easy to impress her with all she's accomplished.
