No wonder she abruptly disappeared from the news a few months ago. $167,000 in expenses. In Columbus, no less! BWAHAHAHA!

If she were a stripper, would things then be considered expenses for work?

She's built like a stripper. She may need to take that line of work up to pay her bills; she's been fired from two of the four network affiliates in Columbus in less than three years.

I could go along with the manicures and teeth whitening.

I don’t think you could go far as a female anchor without regular expenditures on those items, whereas most of us can.

Title should read: "Hamper Has Underwear Problem"

If this is her fishing outfit, I can see how she had such a heavy expense account. Fishing pearls and heels don't come cheap. This whole thing smells fishy.

I agree. But how she could claim she spent $167,000 over three years on clothing and such is beyond me. She was a second string, 5:00 AM news anchor/reporter. In Columbus, that pays around $60,000.

There is a resemblance. This Hamper chick is hotter.

Apparently she is an angler. Likes to fish for catfish. From reading her piece, she is decent at it. I wouldn’t mind taking her out on the boat for a day. She may be high maintenance but she is stylin’.

I’m inclined to agree with you; however, before a definitive judgment can be reached, I think we need to see her in the aforementioned garment.

Gets me to wonder what national TV stars like Whoopi Goldberg and Katie Cuoric, not to mention Andy Rooney, are claiming.
Sorry about the possible visual concept of Whoopi in a thong.

She can throw her clothes in my hamper any day of the week.

“Sorry about the possible visual concept of Whoopi in a thong.”

As bad as that is, it was the visual of Andy Rooney in a thong that disturbed me. Thanks a lot. Oh well, back to my naked psychologist again.

Expenses needed to be an anchor but not an ordinary office worker are fine to deduct (nails, hair, makeup, orthodontia, botox).

Others that any worker needs (underwear) is not.

I believe that the IRS allowed a stripper’s boob-job as an occupational expense, but that story suspends credibility because cash-paid strippers aren’t big taxpayers needing deductions.
