CNN's Soledad O'Brien: Not as Nice As She Looks

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMedia Minute

soledadobrien.jpg

Or so implies some of her NYC neighbors.

According to reports, Soledad O'Brien is part of a movement trying to get the Lyons family evicted from a NYC apartment building she resides in because her apartment clique doesn't like the family's dog, a 150-pound mastiff.

O'Brien apparently complained, in a 20-page affidavit submitted to the apartment board, about the pooch's "size, slobbering, shedding, drooling, gassiness and odors."

The family has resided in the building since 2003 and brought the dog into the family in 2007. There are no 'rules' in the apartment building's bylaws prohibiting pet ownership.

Then what's the problem, Soledad???????

To minimize the dog's interaction with the apartment building's other residents, the Lyons family allegedly offered to use the freight elevator to walk the dog, but the board refused to allow it.

Hey, the fam is trying!

The patriarch of the Lyons brood said about Soledad, "Her behavior has been particularly outrageous." His wife chimed in, "She did get in my face. What's the matter? Aren't you talking to me?" she said O'Brien asked her.

The Lyons family will be appearing at NYC's Housing Court to defend their dog soon.

A lawyer repping the family told the media, "No family should have to decide between its own shelter and putting the family pet in a shelter."

O'Brien's rep did not provide a comment.

So this is the type of stuff the Mean Girls do after high school!

    What a bitch. Why can't people mind there own business. How much trouble could the dog be causing this bitch.



  7. 7

    I AGREE! These dogs are way too big to living in an apartment building. The hallway stinks and they are always shedding, plus the owners do not clean up after them. Anyone wanting a 150 lbs mastiff should buy a house!! Plus it not fair to the dog to live in such a small space. Perez, you can sit there and judge, but you have to see it to believe ita nd I have. She is right!

    Ewwww!!! Wat a huge biottttch! It's not like the dog's romping around everyone's home! Soledad is from now on SOULESSBITCH! Obviously she has never loved a pet or anything more than herself for that matter. I hope she gets booted from the network because I'll stop watching her FOR SURE….

    mastifs have a bad rep..which is from being uneducated..people. not the dogs:)
    however there are people who don't train dogs. if the dog is a threat then it should be an issue. those dogs ARE NOT made for apartment living. people are so selfish



  13. 13

    OK FUCKFACE! NICE ARTICLE!



  14. 14

    hahaha mean girls! that movie is prime!!
    but she is a pretty big bitch. she should get herself a puppy!

  16. 16

    What a bitch! What's her problem?



  17. 17

    Re: WakeUpPeople
    I think that those apartments are pretty sizeable and roomy! I've lived in the City and my apartment there had more square feet than my current townhouse in the suburbs!!



  18. 18

    What a damn bitch she is! I'm sure she has her gassiness and odors too. And definitely she's got witchiness. :/ People suck. Dogs rock. Big ones, little ones, ugly ones, gorgeous ones. Give me a furry 4 legged bitch before bitches like that ANYDAY as neighbors.



  19. 19

    Of course the assumption is it's always someone else's fault and not the dog owners!



  20. 20

    SHE'S JUST MAD BECAUSE THE DOG SAID NO WHEN SHE ASKED IF SHE COULD PUT SOME PEANUT BUTTER ON HER VAG AND HAVE HIM LICK IT OFF. BITTER OLD HAG!!

    Re: harrybalsac – QUIT KISSING EVERYONE!



  22. 22

    This is pathetic. Is she going to go after all the yappy poodles too?

    There were no rules so I say let them keep the dog. Most of the things described the owner could fix by cleaning up a little more after the dog and they seem more than willing to do what they can to keep their pup. I think its more about the dogs size than anything else people are afraid of it. From my experience working in an animal hospital mastiffs are generally very sweet big teddy bear types.



  24. 24

    Booooooooo! Anyone who has a problem with dogs is really the one who has a problem.

    Mastiffs make excellent dogs for large apartments provided they are given enough exercise. Further more, they have very short hair and while they do shed, it's not nearly as bad as a lab or golden retriever. And they do not smell. The only things she got right were the size and the drool.

    Re: clayfan – SEE #20. THATS THE PROBLEM!

    Re: clayfan – I JUST NOTICED YOUR NAME…ARE YOU A FAN OF THE GAYKEN???



  27. 27

    Who the hell keeps a 150-pound dog in an apartment? They should have contacted the SPCA rather than sued, ’cause that's cruel.



  28. 28

    Re: Big Black Dick – I had an idea over the weekend. How bout fukin start offering flavored fists? Spearment, Wintergreen, cherry, chocolate, and hot cinniman? hehehehe
    I fukin hate bitches like her. Maybe she should have fukin eyes in the back of her fukin head if she's going to be the BITCHFUK.



  29. 29

    Wow…..so in a country where we can do great things and make changes and return to being the greatest country in the world, this half witted, talking bobble head, thinks that because a DOG does all the things that people do: drool, fart, shed hair, etc. (yes, at times, people do all of the above), he should be put out? How would you like it if your neighbors wanted YOU out. I'm 2500 miles away, but I am tempted to go back to my home city and protest in front of her house. LIVE AND LET LIVE SOLODUD.



  30. 30

    They need size standards there for how big your dog can be. Put it right in the lease agreement - 25 pounds and under. I don't think big dogs belong in an apartment anyway and especially not in an elevator with other people. Soledad may not like it but she doesn't have any size stipulation so she can't really complain now.



  31. 31

    Soledad is Black! >>>>> she will beat a bitch down!!!!!!!!!!!!



  32. 32

    Re: Big Black Dick – AND I'M THE SECRETARY. TURDZ ARE MY LYFE 4 LYFE.



  33. 33

    just let them use the freaking freight elevator and call it good. the family is trying…let the problem get solved win-win people!

    And this chick…I dunno who she is, but getting that worked up about a dog in your building is ridiculous and petty. So its a dog - it stinks - yeah….it's a dog. And they allow dogs. So shove it lady!



  34. 34

    I have an English Mastiff and it's the 2nd one I have owned. They are beautiful, calm, freindly and not smelly. Maybe a bit slobbery, but not a big shedder. These dogs need very moderate exercise, and it is never suggested to over exert because of possible leg and joint injury. They don't jump up on people, and are generally not interested in you unless you appear to be coming at their owner in a threatening manner. These people made a great choice for a family pet, and this Soledad O'Brien is just being a bitch, no pun intended.



  35. 35

    That's a huge bitch!



  36. 36

    Shove that dogs dick in her mouth and shut her the hell up! She is a BEAST!



  37. 37

    1. the Lyons family are obviously the ones feeding the story to the press so we're only hearing their side of it
    2. I wouldn't want a big scary dog as a neighbour so I don't blame anyone for complaining



  38. 38

    Gooo Soledad

    If the Lyons want a big ass dog like that they should get a house!!



  39. 39

    Re: Betty M
    THAT IS SO IGNORANT lol.



  40. 40

    That is horrible! I have a dog and I couldn't imagine giving him up because he sheds a little and smells sometimes! Sheesh. Soledad needs to get over herself!



  41. 41

    If you ever lived in a NYC apt building with a neighbor with a huge dog its not fun or nice. My neighbor has 2 big rockweilers who likes to mount me everytime the dogs see me. These dogs wiegh at least 80 lbs each and have began snapping at neighbors



  42. 42

    yes, smiling reporters are people too and not just the jolly smiling faces you see on screen. They have annoyances just like us! OMGNOWAI
    but seriously, girl needs to back off.



  43. 43

    Never liked this phonie bitch, I hope she loses big!



  44. 44

    I just feel bad that a dog that large is living in an apartment. Also, we don't know if the dog is barking or if he is shedding and some of these people are allergic. (I am not a dog hater). The gassiness thing though is funny. Does the dog fart where ever or does he know who does not like him and he lets loose by their door? Does he get into their crotches and slobber all over them?



  45. 45

    Soledad, go do your hair, your kinks are showing.



  46. 46

    Re: WakeUpPeople

    I doubt it is anywhere near a small apartment…



  47. 47

    Rich stuck up assholes. I hope shit falls face firts in a pile of dog shit and gets pink eye.



  48. 48

    What a biatch! She probably thinks cuz her ass is on tv people need to jump when she barks out her demands.



  49. 49

    what people fail to realize is that dogs this size don't require an immense about of exercise. They are usually content with just a couple of walks a day, and a comfy bed to sleep in. If the owners want a big dog, then let them have him, they are the ones feeding him and taking care of him. Their house has fur all over it and is stinky, not the other people in the building. it is crazy, unless he is a vicious dog then there is no reason they should have to get rid of him.



  50. 50

    Fuck that Bitch. She can eat dog shit.



  51. 51

    THAT BITCH



  52. 52

    What a petty thing for this woman to occupy her time with. Just one more reason to avoid CNN.

  53. clk says – reply to this


    53

    Give her a break. Slobber is gross.



  54. 54

    I am sure we are not talking any ordinary sized apartment that the majority of us would live in. If this bitch lives there they are probably penthouse sized and more than enough room for a big dog like that one. She has been a bitch for years. Her co-workers are rumored to not like her. She is a diva. I hate Housing Authorities anyway. Surprised there actually is no bylaw re: pets. That is usually one of the first things to write about. I got kicked out of my condo because my cat got out of the house and I was not abiding by the "all-pets-must-be-on-leash" law. Freaks. People with nothing better to do.



  55. 55

    Fuck this Bitch!!! She should live in a 'No Pets allowed' building then. She probley smells & slobbers too. Look at all the froth around her mouth. BITCH!



  56. 56

    karma is a bitch soledad…



  57. 57

    would you trust anyone named soledad? you asshole bitch, your the dog



  58. 58

    Mean BITCH. :(



  59. 59

    I can't imagine having enough time to actually get a 20 page affidavit prepared to try and get a family with a large dog (that does not use the building's common areas) evicted. I am sure Soledad can find better things to do with her time. Like: Getting something done with her hair, maybe a photo facial or two, she does know tv is in high def? And a little shot of botox here and there wouldn't hurt her either.

    Women that are happy, healthy and have sex on a regular basis would not even think about doing something like this. That also explains the other women in the NY building. I am looking at Lisa Rinna as I type this. Leave the family alone, I am sure there is lots of things in your life that could use some improving, I just gave you three.



  60. 60

    Everyone should boycott the programs that she is on.



  61. 61

    Apartments in her building are HUGE! It's an old factory….they are loft apartments…plenty large enough for a big dog like this. Why does she really care? What does she do, lurk around the hallways to try to catch the dog dripping a drop of drool or losing a strand of dog hair? She's got a cat — it doesn't smell?? Not surprised that Soledud spent the effort on a 20 pg complaint; she believes she is superior to everybody else, that she breathes rarefied air.



  62. 62

    I thought I was the only one who thought she was a condescending bitch!! Glad I'm not alone. It's all about her tone of voice. CNN needs to lose her.



  63. 63

    Fuck all you people that are saying that bitch is right! This article is about my and my boyfriends best friend and that dog(Ugo) is the sweetest thing in the world. It doesn't bother anyone.O'Brien just needs to get fuck she has a stick up her ass. The apartment that the dog lives in is huge definetly big enough for it. They clean up after it, it goes for lots of walks.So fuck everyone who's on the dumb bitches side. NYC BITCHES GHOST WE OUT… I love you LYONS family!!!!!



  64. 64

    Don't know why anyone likes those dogs. The slobbering is a enough to make you gag.



  65. 65

    What a bitch 8( I love mastiffs!!! But if they live in an apartment isn't that kind of cramped for such a big dog?



  66. 66

    Mastiff's do not belong in apartments. Shit, 150 pounds? that dog outweighs me be at least 25 pounds. i wouldn't want it in my building either, out of fear that it may one day try to knock me down or even just jump up so i can pet it and he'd end up crushing me.



  67. 67

    Never liked her, what the hell is her problem?



  68. 68

    WHAT A BITCH. I LOVE ANIMALS, I'M GOING TO WRITE TO CNN AND HAVE THE ANIMAL-HATING COLORED GIRL FIRED.



  69. 69

    Mastiffs are great dogs. You're right, she's a bitch!



  70. 70

    just because you decide to get a huge ass dog, doesn't mean that your neighbors should be subjected to it.
    mastiffs are slobbery, oafish dogs, and i'm sure he drools on everything as he walks in and out of the apartment. i'm gonna guess he barks too.
    why would O'brien go through all the trouble to pay her lawyer to prepare an affidavit, unless the dog was a real nuisance?
    team solidad.



  71. 71

    I loved her… until now. Damn sham… I liked her show on CNN. Won't watch that again.



  72. 72

    i think its time we bitch slapped her



  73. 73

    As a person with a 150 lb Mastiff, they are actually low energy and GREAT apartment dogs. They like to sleep and require less exercise. Often the bigger they are, the more docile. They only dog I've ever been afraid of was a neighbor's lap dog who BIT ME when I was just SIX YEARS OLD. Just because you have neighbors who fail to train their big dogs (or any dog) doesn't mean that is the case here.



  74. 74

    i agree with fellow readers that big dogs shouldn't be in an apartment. however, if you go to NY all you will see is people walking their dogs (and you know they ain't living in a house with a yard). there is either a piece missing to this story or Soledad has a lot of free time to bitch about this bitch. c'mon-unless the dog is barking all night, or acts menacing, what the hell is the big deal.

    75

    C'mon, what kind of MORON keeps a 150-pound mastiff in a NY city condo? She has a point - I'd want the fucking thing out too.



  76. 76

    seriously the dog doesn't live with her. if she can't handle seeing a dog she doesn't like in an elevator, then the bitch needs to calm the hell down. seriously this is a busy woman with a career in a world where people are still starving and being held back or tortured, and she's going to spend her time complaining about a dog she has to see in an elevator? please.



  77. 77

    my vote is for the dog!



  78. 78

    Obviously- from my name you can guess that I have a Mastiff. By nature, Mastiffs have extremely low energy levels- which makes them great dogs for small spaces. They are rarely 'talkative' and far less annoying than little yappy "mall dogs" that normally live in apartment buildings. Yes they drool- but that can be taken care of- they can be shaved to take care of the shedding. These are the most gentle and loving of all dogs. O'Brien should be ashamed of herself for being so insensitive- get a grip and loosen up. If it makes a family happy- get over it!



  79. 79

    What a BITCH!! Must be nice not to have anything more pressing to worry about like money, food, a job, the recession! Get a life or just shut the fuck up and let other people live theirs!

    80

    It is a large condo…not a small apartment. Multi-million dollar range….as with the bouncer in Alaska, once again the mastiff should simply pee on her leg.



  81. 81

    It's idiotic to keep an animal that size in an apartment — not kind to the dog or to the surroundings.
