There is a small faction of idiots who like to come and post here and tell me what I should and should not be blogging about. As it is happened again today, I thought I would explain to everyone once again, this is my blog, my opinions, and my research. I know many of you are used to bloggers that just copy whatever other blogs are saying, but things don’t work that way here. Try examiner.com for that they would love to have your ad revenue. They are a reblogging site. I am a blog site.
On Wednesdays, the weekly tabloids come out. Sites affiliated with print tabloids like The National Enquirer, or In Touch immediately start running their teaser stories on sites they own, like Radar Online. Reblogger sites that don’t investigate the stories to see if there is even a shred of truth rush to copy and paste those stories into their blogs. See? They blogged! That is not how things work here. I contact sources. I scour public records. I try to find the 10% of stories that have some truth to them and ignore the 90% that don’t.
Which brings me to people like my commenter Teri. Teri thinks that selecting the more likely to be true stories makes me “biased.” Teri seems to think biased means treating Bravolebrities she doesn’t like fairly. Teri is angry with me today because I didn’t post about Kim Zolciak owing Colin Cowie a million dollars. Teri doesn’t seem to understand who is responsible for this website. I tried to explain to Teri that this week Radar Online said Kim owed Colin a million dollars. A few days ago they ran the same story with the figure being $200,000. Prior to that it was an Atlanta valet company who said Colin Cowie never paid them because Kim didn’t pay Colin. Their source was “a family member” of Kim’s? Kroy’s? All of this made perfect sense to Teri, but it reeked of utter bullshit to me. I ignored the story.
Tonight, while I was blogging my response to RHOM and WWHL the following was posted on twitter.
@Kimzolciak @colincowie I- all stories and gossip – it’s not a million, Its not 200K, its 20K. lets settle this with the truth! Colin
NOW we have something to work with. Kim and Colin are tweeting. It’s possible Kim owes Colin a balance of $20,000 or it’s also possible Colin was joking around with Kim because the entire thing is ridiculous. But, only now do we have something to keep an eye on. So while I keep an eye on it, prepare to see KIM OWES COLIN $20K! All over the other blogs. I try to keep my tea as hot as possible while still being CORRECT. That is why I chose to investigate and sort through a shit ton of gossip and post only the most accurate stuff. I still get things wrong, but they are my mistakes, and my investigations.
Thanks for reading y’all. Sorry to go off on the usual “like it or lump it lecture”, but I wanted to address the Colin Cowie tweet tonight, and I’ve been blogging for over 15 hours today so I’m grumpier than usual. :) P.S. I just can’t edit this one. zzzzzz
