It seems that Alyce is not exactly living in a bubble when it comes to all of the attacks on her personally and professionally on social media. Edited: The author of this article, Michael Kiefer, originally published this piece in The Republic which was picked up by USA Today. I am changing the link to go to the original source. Tirades against Alyce have extended to phone calls to her office, and the offices of those who have her booked for speaking engagements. I’ve excerpted a couple of the more interesting points below, but the entire article is definitely worth a read and pause for thought. Continue reading »
California has more than its fair share of crazy, delusional attention whores. Twitter has more than its fair share of crazy, delusional shut-ins with no life who enjoy watching the crazy, delusional attention whores in California. Both of these things in isolation would not be a problem were in not for the attention whores in California deciding to mix with the twitterverse. What the crazy delusional attention whores don’t get is that there is a subset of the twitterverse that spends their days and nights trying to cause pain to the attention whores. Perhaps because they are getting so much attention.
Some of the twitter people start hate blogs specifically to defame and harm others. Until recently, when Jill Zarin was fired by Bravo, there was quite a large website whose mission it was to harass Jill and spread hate. While that site was the largest, it was not the only hate site for housewives, there were other smaller ones for Bethenny Frankel and other bloggers who focused the majority of their blogging time hating Taylor Armstrong. While it is true that the majority of sites that discuss reality TV poke fun at the cast of misfits who are cast, most do so by pointing out the scripted stupidity. We mock people who choose to put their atrocious behavior in the public eye. Part and parcel of being on a reality show is the judgement of the public. We disagree with each other. We argue over who is the victim and who is the shit stirrer. We talk amongst ourselves about who we like and who we don’t. Who we love and who we love to hate.

It’s another Sunday in the ATL and that means a new episode of the Real Housewives of Haterville. So I decided to take a stroll over to the Bravo site and see the latest blogs. Surprise, surprise, surprise, pretty much none of them have updated. The last one to blog was Cynthia. Apparently, she felt the need to defend Peter once again. She was commenting on the episode where the fact that Peter dipped out on her at her agency opening had her less than excited about his attempt at a salsa date night. As you recall he told her that “he doesn’t like to say goodbye” so he just jetted. Yet, in her blog she says that he had stepped out to take a phone call and came back in after the speech. Once again, as with many of the housewives what they say in their blog does not match what is shown on the episode, or what occurred in real life Continue reading »
