It’s the 10th leading cause of death in America, Men are 3.5 times more likely to die by suicide than women. White males were 70% of the suicides in 2014. Worst of all, it is preventable. We can help each other, and that’s why I’m taking on this topic today.

Pay Your Child Support With Pizza? Maybe.

In the News of The Wacky, I came across this article on Huffington Post about a man who was being charged with the crime of not paying his child support. It turns out though that the FEMALE JUDGE agreed with his lawyer, that when hard times hit and he didn’t have the cash to pay the $350 a month in support to his ex wife, his offer to give her that much in pizza, calzones and other food from his restaurant, counted. His ex-wife turned him down, and then came after him for the cash but the court sided with him, and acquitted him of any crime.

So can you pay your support in pizza? maybe if you own a pizzeria. How about subs? maybe if you own a Subway Restaurant. The point really is that he made his best efforts to be a stand up guy, would that work in the states? it’s a tough call. But hey, if it’s all you’ve got as an argument. Go with it.

Johnny Depp’s Dog Custody Is An Issue in His Celebrity Divorce From Amber Heard

Father Caring for His Sick Son in Shower Should Be Honored NOT Reported

I come from a different age, I don’t view nudity as a big deal. I especially don’t think it’s a big deal between a parent and a sick child who is puking and pooping from the stomach flu. This story was written by a mother to give credit to her husband  and what he was doing to take care of their sick son. It is a beautiful piece in my estimation.

Frankly I’m appalled that we live in a world where people would look at this picture, see the backstory and have the nerve to report it as inappropriate.

MFL#041 Hot For Teacher ? | Chris Anderson of

This episode of the Men’s Family Law podcast has Christopher Anderson of discussing with David Pisarra the short term effects and long term effects of sexual abuse on boys and how it manifests when they are adults. When men are silenced by a society that doesn’t let them share their emotions, they internalize them and that leads to drug addiction, alcohol abuse and sex addiction, failed relationships and life problems.

It’s odd how many men think it would “cool” if they had a teacher that molested them when they were kids, but wouldn’t want it for their sons or daughters because they know it is wrong. I think we need to have more discussions about this topic to raise awareness and root out those teachers who are abusing boys and young men.

Here’s information for parents when their boys are abused:

Can Tyga Release a Sex Tape with Kylie Jenner?

It’s a hot topic this week! TYGA taping himself having doing the deed with Kylie Jenner, IF there’s a tape that get out, he could be in big trouble, or not. If HE releases it, big trouble, if someone illegally gets ahold of it, he may be off the hook, but reap the publicity benefits -hey it worked for Kim! and Paris! and Pam!

Check out my take on the issue in this article:

“There are several legal loopholes Tyga could jump through if he wanted to release a sex tape with his ex gf Kylie Jenner without getting into too much trouble and perhaps even make a few dollars in the process,” California Attorney David Pisarra explained to “One way around the revenge sex porn law would be if Tyga did not release the tape himself. If he could claim in court that he accidentally left a laptop with the sex tape on it out in his house, and he had a small party at his house where a stranger had access to the computer. Tyga could claim a stranger then posted the video without Tyga’s knowledge. Tyga must prove that he did not intend for the tape to be released. Intent is key.”

Can Tyga  Pay Less Child Support if Blac Chyna Marries Rob Kardashian?

Whenever the babymama gets a new man, the ex wants to know if he gets to pay less Child Support, I was asked about this for in regards to Blac Chyna potentially marrying Rob Kardashian – the short answer is the new man is not responsible, and it wont help in lowering the child support that Tyga is paying.


“If Blac were to get a new job earning 7 figures, like a TV contract, that would likely have very little effect on Tyga’s child support payments. As long as Blac has custody and until that child turns 18, Tyga is financially responsible. There is little that can change that,” says David Pisarra, a father’s rights expert and California divorce attorney. Maybe this will motivate Tyga to get his finances in order and work harder to support his son!

How Could Tyga Sell a Sex Tape He Made with Kylie Jenner?

We all know the way the Kardashian empire got started, thanks to Kim’s sex tape, could her little sister Kylie expand the empire with her own sex tape? Probably. Does she want to though?

I was interviewed by on this topic and in the article I said:

“Tyga would need written consent from Kylie before he can release a sex tape of the two of them,” David explained EXCLUSIVELY to “Any sex tape released without Kylie’s consent would possibly fall under California’s new revenge porn law which prevents exes from releasing private material after relationships end.”
