Watch Where You’re Going With That Pitchfork

box.jpg

So here’s the sad truth- when people call me a fat, middle-aged, opportunistic, talentless, skank, it sometimes HURTS MY FEELINGS! Sniffle, sniffle. Whine. Eat. Call for emergency botox touch-up. And for some reason, the self-hater within would much prefer to dwell on the negative rantings of people who in other times would be holding pitchforks and waiting with a match at every witch burning within a donkey-ride of their village, than on the much larger list of the supportive comments of people who have told me that they’re inspired by my honesty. But I’m trying, I really am, to go where the love is.

Thank Goddess for the “Block this Asshole” option on Facebook.

Being theoretically prepared for the release of my memoir is different from the reality of having my guts spilling out of those little box thingys that hold the free newspapers all over town. This is shaping up to be quite a ride.

A porn star/author friend of mine told me to hold my head up and dare them to think poorly of me. And she should know.

One week until the book is released. Here we go…

    that’s mean. I’m sorry people are being so mean [I haven't read anything negative] to you upon the release of your book. I’m sure it will get better. Sharing yourself like that is painful in and of itself, I’m told, and hard to deal with. May you find comfort in those who know and love you.

    It bears repeating, especially in the face of judgmental assholes: you are awesome and beautiful and a strong, talented, and loving woman and mother. Now, repeat that to yourself 50 times a day.

    not that you are any of those things—not remotely—but if you were, in fact, a fat, middle-aged, opportunistic, talentless, skank, then at least you would be a fat, middle-aged, opportunistic, talentless skank with a brillaint book about to be distributed all over the world, an LA weekly cover and press in major magazines. those people hating on you are likely fat, middle-aged, opportunistic, talentless, skanks….and without all the accolades. youre brilliant and theyre jealous…plain and simple. hate on, haters.

    people who are mean are people who are deeply unhappy, unsatisfied, etc. so dont worry about it, theyre just letting out all of their bad feelings, dont take it personal. feel sorry for them. :)

    I’m just finishing up your book. I really liked it. It’s very interesting and honest. What adventures you have had. You are an intelligent woman. Mean people are miserable. Here’s to the love. All the best to you!

    Oh, one more thing I forgot to mention in my comment above. You were so well spoken on the Mark & Brian morning show on KLOS that I went out and bought your book the very next day. It was such an interesting interview and you were so intelligent.
