THIS Is Why She Has A Problem With #Bloggers - Blood, Sweat and Heels

The latest reality show from the Bravo network is Blood, Sweat and Heels.  Set in New York and Brooklyn this show features the lives of six women.  A cast member has a web log and in a post she included her feelings on a recent gathering of the six women.  While at a brunch, hosted by one of the women in this series, questions were asked by the host as a means to start conversation.  Questions like "Do you think all men cheat?", "Do you think women can rule the world?" Some of the answers shocked the blogger and she wrote about it.  Surprised?  No, you shouldn't be.

Well...
  
The ladies at the brunch were not very pleased about what was written.  Here's how one of the cast members of Blood, Sweat and Heels responded:


Ahem.

Daisy Lewellyn* said, "This is why I have problems with Bloggers.  They sit behind their computer.  They don't have any make-up on.  They are not watching their weight.  They are not attractive.  And they say anything they want."

Wow.

I understand she was upset but, come on.

I get a kick out of the next thing Daisy says, "She owes us an apology."

Funny.  Interesting (and by that I mean ironic) statement.

As a Blogger how do I feel about her description of what I look like?  My feelings go into the Hurt category.  Then to confusion.  Why, because I'm a Blogger, am I 'not attractive'?  Why?  I have seen some of the most beautiful faces, with and without make-up, at the blogs I visit.  And who cares?!  It's the quality of the content, not what someone looks like that brings me to their blog.  Who cares if they're not watching their weight?  What does that have to do with writing?

Why would Bloggers be perceived so negatively?

*Per her bio, Daisy Lewellyn is the author of 'Never Pay Retail Again' and a style expert, appearing on shows such as Good Morning America and The Today Show.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby
