A wise person once said, "Wherever you go, there you are." Your problems will follow you wherever you go - unless you are willing to make a change.

For busty traffic reporter Demetria Obilor, switching jobs didn't solve her problems. Obilor, 26, was a traffic reporter for KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, when one viewer complained on Facebook about her distracting attire.

Obilor favors curve-fitting club dresses, the type that leaves nothing to the imagination. Male viewers thought Obilor's attire was appropriate for work. But her tiny dresses caused a commotion with female viewers.

Obilor has been a traffic reporter for two weeks at WFAA Channel 8 News in Dallas, Texas. She still wears impossibly short dresses with plunging necklines. And female viewers are still commenting on her distracting attire.

"She's a 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress and looks ridiculous," said one female viewer in a post on Facebook.com. The viewer threatened to stop watching WFAA if station management doesn't enforce the dress code.

Obilor shared a screenshot of the post on social media. "I'm not a 16/18, but even if I was, for you to try to call out my size like that to hurt me or discriminate against me, I'm not for that," she told NBC News.

Obilor, who is biracial, was attacked at her previous job for wearing her hair natural.

She shared a screenshot of an email from a woman who said her natural hair must be hard to clean and "smell bad."

"Black people on TV; there’s nothing wrong with that," Obilor said. "Naturally, curly hair — I don't care if a black woman wants to wear her hair straight or in braids, you don't get to say what's professional and what's not professional based on your white standard of beauty."

She added: "When you get older and you're in the news people warn you that, 'Hey, you're going to be under a harsh lens. People are going to critique you, people are going to say mean things about you.'"

Working moms everywhere can relate to a NBC news correspondent who vent viral on social media after her son interrupted her live report on Syria.

NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube was live on the air reporting on the conflict in Syria on Wednesday when her son wandered over and demanded her attention.

Kube, who covers national security and the Pentagon, was discussing Turkey's incursion into Syria from the NBC News studios in Washington, D.C. when her 4-year-old son interrupted her.

"Excuse me... my Kids are here. Live television," Kube laughed while simultaneously pushing her son away.

Kube later explained that her kids were dropped off in the studio from preschool and, "Breaking news in Syria didn't line up with preschool drop-off, so he and his twin brother were with me."

Hopefully Kube's boss has a good sense of humor.
