Who is the worrrrsssttt?

9 Oct

As Jean Ralphio says, Trump and Carson are the worrrrrssstttt…. Here is a comparison of the worst things I could find said by Trump, Carson and Jeb Bush.  Frankly, if this were a trial I would hang the verdict myself on Trump and Carson.  Bush has said some terrible stupid things, but they pale in comparison to Trump and Carson who are straight up racist morons.

Update: I somehow omitted in the  section re Jeb Bush on Jews that he apparently  misrepresented his involvement in aiding Ethiopian Jews.

Either way, Brooks Ayers has a disease

26 Sep

If you haven’t heard by now that Brook Ayers (bf to Vicki Gunvalson RHOC) may or may not be faking cancer I have no respect for what you do with your time.

It is terrible if someone fakes cancer, but probably just as bad to accuse someone of faking cancer. At the end of the day, it is not a good practice to accuse someone of faking a brutally terminal disease.

Having said that (sidebar: this is an asshole phrase), many people have asked “why would you fake cancer?”  This is an attempt to answer that question.  If you will be offended by a hypothesis as to why someone might fake cancer, stop reading now.

People usually lie for the most basic human reason: self-interest.   Let’s recall two things about Brooks’ history on this show: 1) everyone thinks he was dating Vicki for $  [valid?] . . .she’s a millionaire and he has gone to jail for failing to pay child support; and 2) everyone hated him (for many valid reasons including that he (admittedly) told Vicki’s son in law to beat Vicki’s daughter.)

Hypothetically, Brooks would be motivated to lie about cancer to nip these things in the bud: 1) no one would think it was bad that Vicki was supporting him financially if he had cancer; 2) no one would villainize  someone with cancer.

#1 is what it is; if we are admitting propensity evidence he is a little sketchy.

#2 is not so unusual.  In fact, lying about a disease for sympathy is a recognized pathology known as “Factitious disorder.”   I am surprised Megan King Edmonds (“MKE”), who has relentlessly pursued justice for realhousewives-nation, has not investigated that.  Considering that many people on the RH shows have pathological disorders(e.g. body dysmorphic disorder; narcissismpseudologia fantastica), maybe it is not so much of a stretch? Of course, if he is doing this for gain, he doesn’t have the disorder… Also, am I the only one who remembers that Kim Zolciak essentially faked cancer on the reunion when Andy Cohen asked her about why she wore wigs? She said that her hair had been falling out and her doctor friend told her he thought that she had cancer. Then Andy Cohen had to ask her if she did have cancer and she was like “no.”  She told people in 2008: “I’ll tell you that the hair comment has been pretty difficult for me. I’ll leave it for the reunion show. It’s discussed and it’s been incredibly traumatic for me. Wearing hair extensions wasn’t by choice.”  Where was MKE then?! (Sidebar: When I tried to look for the clip to post, I couldn’t find it because it happened in 2008.  SO PROUD I have been watching this show for more than 7 years and recollect the episodes to this day.)

 

You shouldda took the fifth!!

rhonyc Kirsten’s husband — who always has to “work late” on the show– was the latest d list celeb to be linked to Ashley Madison.  Here is his initial statement: “I don’t understand. There’s not a shot in hell that I’m a subscriber. I have no knowledge of that. This is the first I’ve ever heard of it. . .This is crazy. I saw it on the TV the other day about the security breach and we were laughing about it. It is what it is but somebody is definitely fraudulently using my name and number.”

Then the next day he says: “I signed up for the site foolishly and ignorantly with a group of friends and I deeply apologize for any embarrassment or pain I have brought to my wife and family . . .We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives.”

1) the fact that he lied undermines his defense–consciousness of guilt BIG TIME

2) but why? Why admit?  My theories are:

  • he would have had to commit fraud to report his cc stolen which obviously his wife would have said he should do, but he could pretend he was doing that and not actually do it so this probably isn’t the reason.
  • Someone called him out on the fact that it would be odd that someone would steal his identity solely to use on that site ie the story is too farkakta.  most lies are a little farkakta so this probably didn’t sway him toward the truth.
  • Someone linked the IP address to his company which people have been doing to show that government workers were checking the site at work.  This seems to most likely reason but no one reported this.

I think his new explanation is redonkulous.  He paid $1k. You only pay that much to buy “credits” to send messages to people. (So I’ve heard 😉 ) Really? The joke went so far as to send messages to people?  YIKES.

The fifth amendment is there for a reason!  Invoke mfer!!!
