Brother, Can You Spare a Diamond? The Midlife Gals Post Their CV for All the World 2C

If you’re looking to hire two single, cocktail-guzzling, 50-something sisters from Texas – who live with their octogenarian mom, to boot – then look no further. (Or, do look further. We don’t care. We just say stuff like that for dramatic effect.)

BlogTalkRadio’s own Kelly and Sally Jackson – aka The Midlfe Gals – have posted yet another one of their trademark “necessarily insane” videos on YouTube.

Would YOU hire these gals?

Sally (left) and Kelly: Would YOU hire these gals?

In the mini flick, titled The Midlife Gals: Video Resume and directed by Steven Speilberg Martin Scorsese Steve Martin their housekeeper Rosita, Kelly and Sally unabashedly boast about their myriad cyber-accomplishments since July 2007, when they first learned what a blog is.

They also bemoan the need for jobs (which wouldn’t seem to sit well with potential employers in this economy. But what hell – as long as they’re having fun, right?).

I’m No Fan of Madonna’s Strung-out, Muscular Look, Liz Smith Dishes to The Midlife Gals

If having her split with Guy Ritchie dragged through the tabloids this past week hasn’t been torture enough, Madonna also had to endure catty comments from The Midlife Gals and Liz Smith.

The nerve of those ladies – piling on old Madge when she’s down!

Madonna: 50 going on... 500?

So here’s what they said:

While Liz was chatting with Sally and Kelly Jackson, the gossip queen told her fellow Texans that she’d recently been to a party with the likes of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

Then Kelly pointed out that Liz had also rubbed elbows with Madonna.

Then Liz said, “Yea, and I saw Madonna right before she announced her divorce and I kept trying to get her to tell me she was going to do that and she acted like she wasn’t.”

Then Sally said, “You know what, Liz?  We’ve decided that Madonna has now crossed the threshold into being too old to exercise as much as she does – because she just doesn’t look very good.”

Then Liz said, “I agree with you. I don’t like that strung-out, muscular look.”

Then Kelly said, “Oh, I don’t either.”

So that’s what they said – if you can believe it (though you didn’t hear it from us).

BlogTalkRadio’s Midlife Gals Score on Houston’s ‘Ken Hoffman Show’

Kelly and Sally Jackson – aka The Midlife Gals – drove all the way from Austin, Texas, to Houston last week in their never-ending quest to demonstrate that “midlife” isn’t a dirty word.  (Depressing, terrifying, fun-killing, discrimination-inducing, yes, but never dirty.)

The cocktail-sipping sisters’ destination?

KGOW-AM’s The Ken Hoffman Show – where they uncorked their trademark humor to the delight of host Ken Hoffman and co-host David Nuno’s sizable audience.

Here’s a snippet of their on-air banter, where Kelly previewed Midlife 2.0 while David gave BlogTalkRadio its props:

KEN HOFFMAN: What’s your definition of “midlife”?

Midlife this!

Sally (left) and Kelly Jackson: Midlife this!

KELLY JACKSON: We’re on the second half of the century and SalGal’s a little further south on that deal than I am…

SALLY: Don’t say it.

KEN HOFFMAN: So it’s midlife if you intend to live to 100?

SALLY JACKSON: Yes, sir.

KELLY JACKSON: We’ll have to change our name to “The Elder Gals,” probably in about 10 years.

KEN HOFFMAN: What station is this on?

SALLY JACKSON: We’re on BlogTalkRadio – Internet radio.

DAVID NUNO: Which is the wave of the future, Ken. If you did research, you would know.

KEN HOFFMAN: I listen to Internet radio.

DAVID NUNO: I do, too.

KEN HOFFMAN: And we’ll be on that in about 10 minutes!
