I received an email with a link to this interesting BlogSpot with exactly one entry today. It’s an open letter to Gina Liano from the Real Housewives of Melbourne written back in April. It seems the show was over and the reunion had been filmed and someone *cough* Lydia *cough* was butthurt over editing. Lydia, er, I mean the anonymous author, says the post is not an attack on Gina and then she goes on to insult her hair, her make-up, her pot-nah, her friend Chyka, and her job as a barrister. She seems to think that being a defense attorney is the worst thing in the world. She also calls out Gina for smoking despite having cancer and wearing cheap perfume to cover the smell. No, that is not an attack at all. That’s just being helpful and keeping it 100. Right?
These girls are just green with envy over Gina’s barrister status. Apparently, she represents the lowly “sample people” and ruins lives. The blogger is obsessed with this saying, ” Onto brains, you are a brilliant legal mind! You roped in Foxtel and everyone involved into a neat little contract where you get to behave badly, feed your ego, literally ruin lives and then tell producers…WAIT HERE IT COMES…’I’m a barrister, edit that out or it will ruin my career as a BARRISTER.’I was on the other end of a call the first time I heard that neat little trick. Isn’t that fun? You took responsibility for hundreds of lives the day you forced your hand with that contract. Cast members, staff, down to the person who runs to get coffee on set. That’s cute; you just swooped in and made it your show. Care to deny it?” Yes, dear. She made it her show with pancake makeup and stilettos something you could not do with all the airplanes and cars and helicopter rides in the world. And you’re butthurt. We get it.
Thanks to the commenter who emailed me this, and Michael, I’m not sure if this was on your required reading list or if this is news to you. I filed your email under “important source material to get to ASAP” and now that I have a minute I can’t find it! Anyway, click the link for the whole blog, and/or enjoy the excerpt below with my thoughts and then let’s chat in comments!
Oh the show itself, this little franchise of horrors indeed. So you had some friends it seemed. They all behaved badly (Thank you Foxtel/Arena for the editing job that is so poor if you freeze frame and replay minutes of dialog at a time from multiple episodes you can in fact get the real filming for most of the cast). Well you didn’t like anyone who wasn’t interested in you. They aren’t interesting either day in and day out so no loss.
The new girl was mean (no she wasn’t…”Dave” is powerful and has money, sluts love that, so blame “Dave” not the angel lady who sees shit). It’s not what defines her…….
Wait, she is defending Jackie by saying Dave has sluts? Jackie is an angel who isn’t mean? Did we just imagine all the passive aggressive shit stirring? I could come around to liking Jackie, but she’s hardly an angel. Perhaps just an ally to the author of this “anonymous” missive.
Your ex-friend the skincare queen, well she just loves her fucking self and is making a list right now. So you decided she was the best bet to shit on. I know having a husband and father of her three babies (wait where’s yours?) is upsetting for the mother of a few men’s offspring (children are off limits according to you, so I’ll move on.)
This doesn’t even make sense. Is she trying to say that Gina has kids that we are not being told about?
By the way, Amazon sells a little thing called a micro camera, you should’ve thought long and hard at who you spent time with when we got that little bit of footage! (Bad Gina, talking nonsense.)
Seriously? Secretly taping Gina for some “dirt” is supposed to make GINA look bad?
Oh there’s the moron who married money. That’s alright, Gina, she was your friend but you were a little boring by episode 3 so you shit on her too, that was fun. I think she actually called you family but we know that’s a lie because you barely knew her. Oh well she’s probably getting her car repainted and flying in her husband’s plane. Stupid “sex” fiend. I guess you hate that you lease your Benz and “Dave” sends you a Qantas ticket when the local US whores get boring.
Lydia, Lydia, Lydia, you are losing your transparency here. If you could go five minutes without bragging about having an airplane and a fancy car you might have had a shot at pulling this off.
Your oldest on all front’s friend, the diamond baron cougar, well she loved you a lot but she’s a bit old and forgets and she forgot to back you up after a long day of filming, so you had it with her. Wahoo to her, she’s free of you.
It’s saber toothed tiger to you Lydia. And you don’t seem like much of a friend to her either.
Am I off basis yet? You know the recorded phone calls are fun too. Those may not be legal but people on set look at you for a reason, Gina.
Lydia, you sound so desperate. You illegally recorded your cast mate who is a lawyer and played the tapes for production? You probably should not brag about criminal activity in a way that sounds threatening online. This little blog is not as anonymous as you think. Oh and it’s off base. It’s a baseball term.
Who’s left? Oh yes. The syrupy sweet catering queen. I like where you both bought, YES BOUGHT FOLLOWERS for social media from the same damn company so you achieved 10k+ status simultaneously. We’ve used the app, Gina we know you needed to look special and be a winner at Ginaville so you helped out your only ally. Did you tell everyone that you have dirt on your friend the queen of cake? It hardly seems fair that her husband has to take the fall if she stops filming with you. Applause for Gina!
So you didn’t get the memo to buy twitter followers like every other housewife on planet earth? Clearly production hates you. We know how you love to buy things. I’m sure you have rectified that oversight now. You can’t find an insult for Chyka other than she is nice so you have to imply that her husband has some nefarious secret that Gina is holding over her? So nasty, so rude.
So Foxtel, we can’t say much to you but we could ask Gina, which employee on the daily is threatened with legal action to get her way: from the President of the group to the poor bastard who cleans up her fake tanner. It’s always someone else’s fault isn’t it? I’m crying, hope my mascara stays.
Regarding these recorded calls and videos. Did you know one of your cast mates is so paranoid that she had a pinhole camera on her at the reunion? I hope you’re starting to feel a bit ugly inside. You have a special way of deepening your voice when you’re being crude. It must really be effective in court. Is it Gina?
So you even wore a camera to the reunion? This little missive was written in April. I wonder if Foxtel is aware of all of your online antics Lydia. Perhaps you will be sitting next to Andrea for season two?
