I HATE JILL ZARIN Weekend Update May 28, 2010
By now, you probably all have taken a look at Toni’s blog to see what the story is behind the Twitter war that involved Ashley of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link
As I mentioned in my blog, many people had opinions about Ashley’s post of the situation. Some tweeted with pleas for Ashley to please remove it, others were nasty to Ashley in their demands for her to remove it and still others tweeted Jacqueline telling her what Ashley had done and asking Jac to intervene and have Ashley remove the tweet.
As many of you noted, Ashley is 19 and while, in my opinion, an immature 19 year old, still considered an adult and Jacqueline has little to no control over the child. I reviewed most, if not all, of the tweets to Ashley and to Jacqueline and found only one person in support of Ashley’s actions. This person, I will call Amanda (not her real name) was tweeting frantically, tweeting to Ashley telling her that she could post whatever she wants and she doesn’t have to listen to all of these people who are asking her to remove the posts. Amanda tweeted to Jacqueline telling her that people were wrong to involve Jacqueline and she should ignore everyone. She tweeted to many of the people who were asking Jacqueline to intervene calling them names and using foul language.
In all honesty, I didn’t necessarily agree with people involving Jacqueline, clearly she has no control over Ashley. I certainly wouldn’t send tweets to them calling them names and berating them either. What I did was to tweet Ashley and I told her that the classy thing to do would be to remove the tweets. When she did, I tweeted her again thanking her and telling her she was a class act for removing it.
At that Amanda went into a rage and began to tweet wildly to everyone and anyone with foul language and insulting people as fast as her fingers could type. Then she tweeted Ashley telling her to restore the tweets, “put them back up” Amanda told Ashley.
Then another tweeter we’ll call Sandra, tweeted to Amanda, “how would you feel if that was your child who was being treated that way?” Well Amanda completely lost it and went berserk! Apparently Amanda is not a mother and is having trouble conceiving a baby. (a fact that apparently Sandra was aware of) What followed on Twitter was very ugly, Amanda was attacking anyone who said anything and her language was offensive!
Yes, I should have shut up, I should have stayed out of it, but it had gotten out of hand and so I tweeted to Amanda, “You really should calm down, you are way out of line now”. Have you ever told an irate person to “calm down”, I know better, I’ve been trained in dealing with irate customers, etc “calm down” is a big no no! I have since learned that Amanda is unstable and has huge anger issues.
Amanda is our most recent troll. Again, not her real name but as most of you know, when you register to leave a comment here, I end up with your IP address. The person who logged on with the name “Bitch” earlier today is the one and only Amanda.
From the day that this erupted on Twitter I have had Amanda blocked on Twitter and to be honest, had completely forgotten about her, it had been over a week without a peep so I thought all was quiet. When I found out through our troll’s IP address that it was Amanda, I went onto Twitter and looked at her most recent tweets only to find that she had been talking about me and several other people on Twitter all this time, tweeting away about many of us who were asking Ashley to remove that tweet. Amanda was hardest on people who had tweeted Jacqueline but she had been responding to many of my tweets all this time even though I hadn’t seen them because I had her blocked. Now that’s a stalker for you! Anyway bear with me as we wait this thing out, she may be back, who knows. I am going to do what I can to avoid her visits but if you see anything odd like that again, please don’t worry about it, I will delete it until she gets bored. If she does come onto the site, she will come to attack me and not any of you and of course I’ll delete it as soon as possible.
I feel like I owe everyone an apology for having to deal with this lunatic, but at the time, I did what I felt was right in trying to protect a minor from being harassed on the internet. I know it may sound dramatic and may be rare but kids are taking drastic action when being harassed on the web and I didn’t think what Ashley did was right. And so for my part in all of this mess, I do apologize. If I had to do it all over again, knowing what I know now, I would have never engaged Amanda. She isn’t stable and her anger is beyond anything I’ve ever seen on Twitter or maybe anywhere.
Thank you for indulging me in this story, I wanted you all to know what was going on.
Twitter has been quiet, here’s the most recent update:
Kelly hasn’t tweeted anything in 6 hours, do you think she’s going through withdrawal? Or do you think maybe she dropped her cell phone into a toilet?
Jill hasn’t tweeted anything for 23 hours….not since she “yelled” at Andy Cohen for not showing Jerry Seinfeld the entire clip of her call with Bethenny.
Ramona has been very quiet, she only tweeted about her appearance tonight on HSN to sell her jewelry.
Bethenny, nothing for the past 14 hours
Sonja, oddly enough has recently gone through twitter looking for people who are posting to her but not spelling her twitter name correctly and has been tweeting them with the correct spelling of her name.
Jennifer Gilbert tweeted about an hour ago about her great dinner….do you care? Me either!
Luann….(if you have recently eaten, don’t read any further) Says “the cat’s out of the bag, somebody leaked my video” and of course posts the link to her video…..gag me!
So, we will just be staying here on this site, at least until RHONY season is over.
Until next time…probably tomorrow LOL
