I did an interview at KTLA in Los Angeles the other day. I ran into this nice gentleman named Walton. He told me he was one of the stars of the TV show “The Shield.” He was such a nice guy. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I’d never seen the show before. I will watch a couple of episodes this season for sure!

REVLON IS AT IT AGAIN -

In “America the Beautiful,” there is a scene where I take some random cosmetics into a lab to get tested for phthalates. All three of the products tested contained phthalates including a bottle of nail polish by Revlon. Also in the film are experts that explain to us that phthalates are suspected of causing allergies and cancer. Jeannie Rizzo of the Breast Cancer Fund even explains that phthalates and other carcinagens probably cause breast cancer in women. Well even though some of Revlon’s products contain phthalates and phthalates are suspected of causing cancer, twice a year Revlon puts on it’s happy face and supports the Breast Cancer Walk.

Well Revlon (I guess even happier) is at it again. Recently an important bill was up for passing at the State Capitol in California, that would have forced cosmetic companies to remove lead from lipstick. (I thought they’d done so already). But the powerful lobbyists of the cosmetics companies were successful in getting the bill killed.

Guess what cosmetics company was out in full force to help squash the bill. You’re right! Corect answer! You should play Jeopardy! You’d win a fortune!

Revlon helped kill a bill that was meant to protect women from harm.

Revlon is at it again

I know we’ve been begging for companies to have social responsibility for years, but pleas like this doesn’t seem to work. Since pleas for incorporating social responsibility into the corporate model have fallen on deaf ears, we have to now implement personal responsibility. That is simply a stance that says if you refuse to care about the people that support you, then we won’t support you anymore. Believe me, that’s the quickest way to get a companies attention.

The options are few. Either personal responsibility or lead lips. You choose.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -

I’m getting ready to go to Washington, D.C. to beg and plead for the senate to past the latest mental health parity bill that’s on the books. This bill will be the first step in providing insurance coverage for girls with eating disorders.

The Eating Disorders Coalition wants the bill passed before the senate breaks for the holidays in November because they’re afraid that the new president will have a different agenda and the bill will never get passed.

If you know anyone with an eating disorder, then you’re aware of how debilitating this condition can be. Write your state congressman and demand that they vote for the mental health parity bill.

Girls are counting on you.

PORTLAND, OREGON -

We had a premiere in Portland, Oregon tonight. I’ll develop the pictures from the camera that I purchased at Rite Aid at post them soon.

Until next time,

Stay beautiful,
Darryl Roberts

  1. WOW!!! Thank you so much for making this film Darryl!!!! I went to the premier last night in Dallas and haven’t stopped talking about it yet! Everyone should know the information in your film!!!BR/BR/I spoke to you after the film for a minute to let you know there IS a company that makes safe products. Today I went searching for you online and found this site! Thank you! I am posting here to let EVERYONE know there is a company right here in AMERICA that manufactures and sells ALL NATURAL products, from skin care and make-up to non-toxic cleaning products to the world’s best ALL NATURAL Anti-Aging supplement: http://www.shaklee.net/health-connection/product/21000 to outstanding nutritional products to state of the art water and air purifiers. That company is the Shaklee Corporation and has been in business for over 52 years right here in the U.S.! You showed us the problem and I want to let you know that there is a solution. You and your family (and everyone) can now take control of what you put in and on your body and what you use in your household cleaners, etc. You CAN be chemical free! I have been for 28 years! BR/BR/Most people who find this company and it’s products never go back to other products. They are that good! This is a company with a conscience. We really do care about people. If you want to shop with a company like that, I suggest you start here: http://www.shaklee.net/health-connection/product/Beauty and then check out the entire site. There is a lot of good information there. Please do your own research and make up your own mind about which products you will purchase and what companies you will support with your dollars! BR/BR/Thanks for reading this :)
