With all that 2020 brought with the pandemic and the lockdown. I think all of us are going to be quite happy to see a new year upon us and to make that a much better year than 2020 was.

The pandemic hitting in March and the lockdowns and people staying at home created an environment that generated an increase in domestic violence statistics during this time.

Our resolutions for 2021 must include to continue to raise awareness and bring those statistics down in 2021.

My New Year’s resolutions include:

  • To continue to tell the truth about Mike Rinder, my father, who domestically abused my mother, caused her damage that cannot be repaired. And bringing to light and showing the truth so that people really know who Mike Rinder is and do not support him.

  • To pour the coals on speaking out against domestic violence perpetrators like Mike Rinder and making sure that they don't get supported.

  • To do my part to raise awareness about domestic violence.

  • And a very important New Year’s resolution for me is to do anything I can to help my mom not be in pain every single day of her life.

  • To keep on loving my family in any way that I can and in every way that I can.

  • And in all parts of my life, continuing to flourish and prosper.

  • So I wish you all a very bright New Year and a big welcome into 2021.


Happy New Year!

It is Christmas week and the 12 days of Christmas are just about over because we just have a couple days until Christmas. So I wish you a happy Christmas and the best for your holiday season.

I also hope that the presents that you receive are not only presents of the latest gadget or the coat that you’ve been wishing for but presents of love and kindness and of compassion. Because those are actually the everlasting presents. So I wish for you to get those presents as well.

And those are the exact opposite of what my father, Mike Rinder, gives to me every year for Christmas now because basically his full time job is to harass my family and to tell lies about us and to spread hate about other people and that is the exact opposite of what Christmas is all about.

And so therefore I say Merry Christmas to all the men in the world who support women and don't attack and insult their wives and don’t injure and maim them for life but who actually care about their wives.

Merry Christmas to all the loving fathers who care for their children.

Merry Christmas to everyone who has the courage to tell the truth and not harm their family.

Merry Christmas to each person that uses their platform to spread cheer and to spread good news and to not spread hate.

Merry Christmas to all the organizations around the world fighting domestic violence.

Merry Christmas to all of those who support people no matter the color of their skin and their beliefs.

Merry Christmas to all those who work to make this a better world.

Merry Christmas in particular this year, but all years, to all the health care workers that have worked on the front lines and most especially to my cousin in New York who has worked in the hospital during the entire Covid19 pandemic.

Merry Christmas to all of my dear family members. You have my love and admiration.

The holiday season is upon us and we are into the holiday spirit now. It is always a really nice time of the year: families get together, there’s lights out, it's cold and beautiful. So I'm wishing you happy holidays and that your holiday spirit is in full roar.

What do you think of when you hear the word holidays? I think of warmth, cheer, kindness, love, compassion. That body of words encapsulate and are the flavor of the holiday spirit for me. And so that is what I wanted to talk about today, what I think should be there during the holiday spirit and what I wish for you.

The holidays are generally the time that you are nice to people, the time when you reach out to people you haven’t spoken with throughout the year to tell them how much you love them. You show your appreciation for who they are, for what they do for you and that is part of the holiday spirit and something intrinsic to the holidays.

Family is very important. So is trust. And being able to trust those that brought you into the world, your parents. Every person should be able to trust his or her parents. Unfortunately, my father Mike Rinder broke that trust when he assaulted my mother, breaking her shoulder, damaging her for life, mauling her flesh. And all the while pretending he didn't do it and that this assault had nothing to do with him. Then making fun of it, shaming the victim, lying about our family. That broke that trust right then and there. Mike Rinder broke that trust with me and my brother and the rest of our family.

In short, when he attacked my mother and crippled her for like it really showed the evil man that he actually is. And when my father, Mike Rinder then has spent the last few years insulting, lying about and spreading hate about my mom, myself and my family, well, that said the kind of abuser he is, one who blames his victim.

It’s quite unfortunate Mike Rinder is my father by blood because he fights and goes against everything I stand for, everything I champion and believe in. The things that would include are things that absolutely go with the holiday spirit such as having families that are domestic violence free, having parents that love their children, having children that support their parents. But loving people, caring for them, being nice to people, those are the things that I champion, those are the things that I stand for and that Mike Rinder, my father, fights directly one hundred percent of the time.

I have a lot of fantastic family members around the world who I love very, very much and they will absolutely be hearing from me this holiday season and knowing and hearing from me about how much I love them and appreciate them. So do the same for your family. Let everyone know how much you care about them this holiday season and keep the holiday spirit alive and keep everybody happy, caring and with no domestic violence.

I wish you Happy Holidays. Spread the holiday cheer. Be kind. Be nice.

Thank you very much.
