Blind Item #8 - Ruining Lives One Recap At A Time

I always talk about the weekly tabloids putting on Kneepads when it comes to celebrities, simply because they want to protect their access and think that is more important than being honest with reviews or opinions. Their mission in life is to suck up to celebrities in the biggest way possible.

Blogs are a different matter, especially blogs or websites that recap shows. Specifically I am talking about reality shows. These blogs and websites definitely have their favorites and obviously the more they suck up, the better the chances are that stars of the shows they are recapping will give them an interview which then leads to more kissing butt and a cycle that never ends.

Sometimes though, these blogs and websites are just really objective with their opinion and call it as it is. When they do that, there are a group of reality stars who have hired a troll farm. This troll farm goes after the offending writer with a vengeance. They fill the comments with nasty diatribes about the writer and the site and try and dox the writer whenever possible. It is not uncommon for the trolls to make threats against the writer and their family.

It is not just the writers that this troll farm disguised as a PR firm goes after. They will go after other reality stars who speak out against one of their clients. They will trash that reality star in every space they can find with a staff of freelance trolls that operate across the country making a certain amount for each day of trolling. They will dox the reality star which then causes dozens of people to show up at the home of the reality star and has led to break ins and other issues where law enforcement was required.

Currently, this firm is representing a former Housewife and have set their sights on anyone who crosses her. Things were so bad by this firm that the producers had to put a stop to it. Well, they tried to put a stop to it. This firm was trash talking every blog and website that said anything bad about this Housewife and doxxing the writers which was causing the websites and blogs to not want to write anything about Housewives at all which would be very very bad for business for the franchise. The final straw for the producers was when the firm started race baiting and spewing vile anti-Semitic hate at some of the writers. The Housewife did not have her contract renewed which is why she is a former Housewife now.

Phaedra Parks?

Sal Salington said...

I've never watched even one episode of RH, but this makes me want to start a blog about the show.

Unknown said...

Its Siggy from RHONJ

TeaMe said...

Definitely Soggy Flicker. The woman is INSANE

Khaleesi said...

I like Don's guess. Especially since she stated she "has no desire" to return to RHOA. I bet.

Jo said...

Siggy from NJ or Dorit from BH?

RealRescuesDon'tDoThis said...

Siggy of RHONJ.

Frazzled said...

It's probably Siggy Flicker, since she accused Margaret of being ant-Semitic on the show, but the blind makes it sound like the trolls were being anti-Semitic toward the bloggers, so who knows?

Khaleesi said...

@Frazzled, I was confused about that part as well.

rocky619ca said...

I like Don's guess.Parks is shady enough to hire people for this purpose.

sandybrook said...

Troll Farm e-mail me I wanna do this job...

Malignment said...

If paid shills are a real thing for some stupid reality show ..... the implications are staggering

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

You know how to respond to a troll? So simple. “I’m sorry you feel that way”.

Then sit back and watch the meltdown.

Low Key said...

IKR, Sandy? Sign me up!
My dream job used to be writer for Weekly World News, since they're gone I guess paid troll would be the next best thing.

katsm0711 said...

I was going to ask which housewife was recently fired but then I remembered that we only hear about that when the new season begins

katsm0711 said...

Someone go ask Brian Moylan I bet he knows!

dyunker said...

It's totally Siggy and there are reports and articles linking her to it. She hired the same PR firm that Leann Times did who went after Brandy and that Brandy had to get a restraining order against. She has also attacked others in Facebook groups I belong to that spoke out against her. The same PR lady and former attorney also attacked that actress from Third Rock From The Sun.

Yep, seen the paid shills on many reality show independent blogs. The Roloffs have quite the PR team and so does Ree Drummond. The organized structure of the defense is so obvious, and the implied threats are always the same. The Sister Wives have their own team, as well.

Maude Labowski said...

This is why I don't watch anything with "real housewives" in the title...

Pope of Hollywood said...

Vincenza Spina as the attorney who reps Housewives. It's gotten ugly.

sandybrook said...

@low key weekly world news was a highly respected writing job. Lots of imagination was needed to write there about aliens and such, I miss it at the supermarket checkout aisle.😥

Boo Hearne said...

If I say what I am thinking, I will be banned from CDAN for life. If you read the entire blind, there is a very truthful statement involved. There are trolls out there and have been for decades, who look for certain words. Then they pounce. Read this and think about it.

Gossipjunkie said...

This is 100% siggy flicker. If you look at her twitter its full of subtle shade towards margaret. She said it herself on the show that she wants to DESTROY margaret. Looks like she wasn’t kidding. All because margaret called her soggy flicker. So pathetic

boredatwork boredatwork said...

I too think it's Siggy F.

Having said that, I noticed last year when Bethenny Frankel went psycho on Luann, and the blogs were calling her out, on her unjustifiable behaviour, suddenly all these new accounts with very few comments would appear, defending her and trashing Luann. Bethenny has used these troll farms 100%

Dahling said...

Meh... Reality Stars. So "Here today, irrelevant by the time I eat my lunch." I mean I AVIDLY watched The Voice last season, but couldn't for the life of me tell you who won. Some blonde girl. Ashley? Hailey? Emily?

Richard Hatch is perhaps the only reality star I can name. Well - he WAS "Reality Star Ground Zero" after all!

Count Jerkula said...

I am up for some paid trolling. Contact email is in my profile, just click my screenname and tell me what the pay rate is.

Boldblonde said...

Sigh with the anti-semitic comments.

Boo Hearne said...

Boldblonde: You just outed yourself!!!

Off With Her Head said...

Jill Zarin of RHNY years ago used to write nasty reviews of RHNY Bethenny Frankels books on Amazon while at the same time write her own glowing review of her own book. She used an easily identifiable faux handle and was booted from reviewing.

There was also a "Hate" blog named after Zarin that was mentioned on the show. It's gone now. I think the owner quit or passed away.

Just recently JZ and BF made up at the funeral for Jill's husband whom everyone loved.
These RH are very thin skinned and vicious.

Court b said...

It's Vicky g. She said she's choosing not to come back, but truth is, she had been warned repeatedly, and kept up her bull. So she made nice at the end in front of cameras. Orange county might be recast completely because of the headaches. The producers & writers want an easier existence. Ask anyone who grew up with her, she's always played dirty.

just sayin' said...

Siggy "No credentials-thin skinned-borderline personality disorder" Flicker.

Richard Lawson, if you read cdan -- I miss your RH recaps on Gawker!!!! I got addicted to the shows because his recaps were the best thing on the internet.

katsm0711 said...

@offwithherhead omg now I remember how nuts Jill used to be! She would be still, except that now she’s so irrelevant that nothing is even written about her anymore for her to defend. I got into the I hate Jill Zarin blog at the end. Wasn’t the owner a woman from Chicago who used a pic of he and her son or nephew who was a hockey star? Yeah, she passed away and all the fun ended. This fits Jill but it sounds like someone newer, must be Siggy. I’m thinking Jill was the first fame-hungry, desperate psycho who did whatever you call this, creating of online accounts to bash the costars, and others followed. I stopped watching Jersey after the tacky cake throwing in Miami. How tacky and childish can they be? But it sounds like Siggy because from what I saw and had also seen her on talk shows, she seems very controlling and fame hungry.

katsm0711 said...

@courtb I stopped watching OC years ago because I had had enough with Vicky. I would love it if what you said is true!

Bobby Digital said...

Who honestly watched this garbage. My wife made sit through some housewife bs and I made it 5 min before wanting to throw my remote at the tv.

Sd Auntie said...

My sister watches this crap...ugggh

ZiLe Ohai said...

Oh my goodness!
This sounds really horrible!

I would make a guess at who this is but I'm busy defending myself and my blog, irontroll.com, against 3 harassment claims filed against me by the owner of a PR firm who works for a fired Real Housewife.

just sayin' said...

I'll say it for you since you can't, Zile...it's Siggy Flicker who's suing him/her. And apparently flagging the website irontroll.com as dangerous.

Unknown said...

Yep VLS pokes pokes pokes and then when you respond she serves you trust me I know all too well. I too like zile am fighting charges

Under the Big Skyy said...

REading over Jeffrey Epstein's black book I took note that two House Wives made his list. Dorit and the NYC Housewife that was married to the Kennedy cousin, Carol something. She is not worth my time looking her name up.

just sayin' said...

Carol Radziwill -- probably in there because Epstein's also a social climber. Interesting about Dorit though! I hadn't caught that. PJ, too I assume?

Renegade said...

I have only watched one of these Real Whores shows for a couple of episodes. Just seems like a waste of time you can never get back .

Yes! Agree

Missyrocks53 said...

After she showed who she is after the Brooks thing, I couldn't watch V anymore.

Missyrocks53 said...

I've watched all the Housewives as a great guilty pleasure. The main ones. In thinking of people, I agree Phaedra is a good guess. Vicki would definitely do that too. But I'm gonna wager on Heather Dubrow potentially. And she's got the $ to go after people.

Missyrocks53 said...

It's Enty speak so I can't follow the end but now reading it makes me think the firm heckled bloggers and Heather is Jewish so she would never. I'm going Phaedra

Kno Won Uno said...

+1

Mango said...

@ Bobby Digital - I don't watch anymore but when I did watch some of the RHW shows, I loved them. They were so deliciously awful!

dummypants said...

I didn't know who this Siggy person was but googled her and this was the first link - looks like she reads this site! https://www.instagram.com/p/BeHJVARDd28/

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Enty posted two BI's about troll farms in a day today. The intresting thing is, I skimmed through the comments today and only 1 out of 3 of the new commenters taht suddenly appeared this past 1–2 weeks after someone got called out for something have posted anything.

If this is because Enty noticed then I'm glad he's noticing.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

*Haven't

And one of the users in question has changed their tune since they were called out (went from complete crackpot comments to "voice of reason" everyone's giving them props for—knows exactly what to say at the right time). Very interesting.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Yeah but what I can't stand is them harassing bloggers, regular non-celebs. They're famous, have a "podium" so to speak, famous enough to have verified accounts and they're picking on civilians.

It's asymmetrical warfare.

And the stuff they're making up is seriously damaging.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Damaging and completely baseless (not to mention ridiculous).

LizibethRome said...

The HW is Soggy. The blogger is a certain disbarred attorney from NJ. Her PR firm is a fake entity created as a cover to stalk and harass other bloggers or fans of HW who disagree with her opinion. She attacks people from twitter she’s never met. She calls their jobs to get them fired. There’s even a recording floating out there where she called the husband’s job of someone who disagreed with her opinion on HWs. She tried to get him fired too because she thought it was his job to monitor his wife’s behavior on social media. Which reminds me, I wonder what Pat thinks of all her crap?

Karma said...

Soggy reminds me of all those East coast snowbirds who would hit Florida for the winter when I grew up in the 70s/80s. Loud, braggarts who had $$$ in the bank, a "Docta" for a son and yet still stole the salt & pepper shakers at the golf course cafe. Soggy name dropped the gyno who did her hysterectomy @ the reunion. Gross, classless fraud---with stringy extensions 2 boot!

Witch Danvers said...

Its Siggy Flicker from NJ. Her PR person is a well known troll and disbarred atty, Vinnie Spina. Rumor is her husband will also soon be disbarred. Vinniespina.com has all the info. Poor Bravo.

wild_herbs_and_blurbs said...

This IS Siggy! I read about this a month ago through bullyville and IRON TROLL http://www.irontroll.com/2017/06/real-housewives-publicist-under.html.
The PR Firm is being run by a disbarred Lawyer Vincenza Leonelli-Spina and former blogger who has operated as FAUX REALITY ENTERTAINMENT. SHe is up to some really twisted stuff. I was shocked and disappointed that anyone would pay for those services.

SomeoneWhoVinnieBullied said...

It is definitely Siggy!! Its truly sad that any1 is the "Reality World" would hire Vinnie aka Faux aka A1_Buckwheat aka DiamondPR or whatever she calls herself. Vinnie and her misfits act like children who love to bully people. This group of misfits/bullies are adults with no lives. ALL HOUSEWIVES need to stay away from this group #period. I liked Siggy until I seen her being friends w/this group of bullies!! #VINNIEisPOISON

just sayin' said...

In the reunion, not only does Siggy admit she'll do anything to destroy someone but she credits it to her Israeli heritage, as if bragging that Israelis are ruthless and amoral:

Margaret: “The only genuine thing you’ve said to me this entire season is that you want to destroy me. and you’ve tried to do it this entire season.” Siggy: "Yes, I have. I’m an Israeli. You’re messing with the wrong girl.”

Angel Menendez said...

Former hw is Siggy Flicker, prteam is adiamondpr, Vincenza Spina and her employee Brandon King. Blogger is allaboutthetea. King testified under oath he was hired to troll for Rimes, Krupa and Majewski. Real creeper, he was arrested and charged with selling drugs to kids in a school zone. You can see his arrest record on bullyville.com He has spent all of rhonj season, along with vinnie, attacking anyone who tweeted in favor of Margaret.

BAPS C said...

hummm sounds like Siggy but there are some things in there that do not sound like her at all like the anti-Semitic comment. Siggy GETS a lot of trolls on her Twitter while Marg barely gets any. Who knows.

missroxmiss said...

Siggy Flicker

Witch Danvers said...

Shes disbarred. Stole a police officers pension according to iron troll.com and vinniespina.com
