What’s your name and from where are you calling?

What’s your name and from where are you calling?

My Darling Fans,

Yes, it’s been a while and I’ve missed you terribly but I’ll address that issue in another post. Let’s dive right into this headline. Albeit too brief for this queen, be it known from sea to shining sea as I sat in my living room and daintily sipped on a green apple martini, I chatted it up with the closest thing to America’s royalty this country will ever see apart from the Kennedy’s . . . Sonja Morgan! So take that, LuAnn de Lesseps. 😛

Yes ladies and gentlemen, girls and boiz, and those somewhere in between — I had a thrush with fame. That’s right, I said “thrush,” meaning to say I made Andy Cohen, Sonja Morgan, and David Alan Grier all blush in nearly one fell swoop of a single phone call and you can watch it for yourselves.

It was almost too much for this comedian and blogger to bare. But this delightfully memorable experience came with both victory and defeat. Though I was able to ask a question and get my comments in to these three divine dignitaries of showtime, the show was running long and most of the answer to my question from Sonja plus my final comment for her were cut from the show.

The problem being, I waited to call into the show a little too long which put me into the After Hours Show and and in addition to that made me the last caller. So for those of you desiring to chat on-air with your favorite personalities, persevere and get those fingers dialing fast and early, a little ahead of everyone else, and keep trying. Oh, and call in favors if you know anyone at the studio. That last one works best! But you know what they say, “Better to be have gotten on the show and cut-off near the end than bumped.” (That’s show biz talk!) You can hear and see a lot of my conversation with Andy, Sonja, and David except for what didn’t make it, so here’s what ya missed . . .

After the introduction was made along with a bit of shmoozing it up with Andy, Sonja and David, I got down to the meat of my call. Inquiring minds want to know and this barely accredited journalist wants to give them the answer: Is LuAnn the puppet master behind a lot of the drama that occurs between the women because from what I gather and other devoted viewers of the inner Real Housewives Sanctum, she’s often setting the scene for havoc between friends then stepping back to watch her masterpiece unfold from the wings. Frankly, she’s transparent and I’m not speaking from just the way the series is filmed, so she can’t even use that as an excuse. She really seems to get a sadistic kick from creating such chaos.

So the ever most gracious Sonja answered my question by saying LuAnn does indeed have a way of playing puppet master and referred to the trip the girls took together at St. Barths. It was hard to hear what Andy was saying but I believe he mentioned something about the current season, at which point I was trying to interject a point about a scene in another episode that recently aired and took place at LuAnn’s house in the Hampton’s. LuAnn conveniently assembled New York’s Page 6ers for a Sunday Brunch and another opportunity to go into the lioness den. And don’t think for one moment she didn’t know what she was doing when we watched her innocently invite the now-infamous-troublemaker-image-consultant, Amanda Sanders. And let’s not forget how she had a little something to do with what went down between Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel and their ultimate demise as she perched herself from the rafters. Coincidence. “Let’s go back to the video tape,” as they say. You will rarely find me defending the likes of Jill Zarin but on this occasion it’s called for. I would certainly give Jill water and protect her from harm by the vultures unlike Susan who couldn’t offer as much to Kelly on Survivor: Borneo, Season 1. That’s just too mean. I can’t say the same for Mrs. de Lesseps.

And then I was rushed by Andy to wrap it up as I’m sure he had someone in his ear telling him to do the same when I got my last comment in about the LuAnn letting go of The Countess title. With all due respect to Sonja and Andy and before my time with them ended, I’ll say they did their best to patronize her not-so-royal lowness but this queen’s not falling for it. Andy and Sonja both mentioned something about maintaining the title out of respect for her and her children but to me that’s about as meaningful as an ashtray on a motorcycle. It’s likely she insisted on the title to feed her narcissism or possible NPD.

And on the off chance you’ve stopped by to read my page LuAnn, (yeah, I’m talkin’ to you FORMER CUNTESS Lu Lu de Lesseps nee Nadeau of the Berlin, NY Nadeau’s) and has-been model and kinda sorta self-professed nurse as seen in last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York on Bravo TV: I believe you’re a mother who was a model that did what again after nursing decades ago who is a year away from her FIFTIETH birthday.

In all actuality, fans of the RHONY franchise wonder if she’s still even licensed at all. If you’ve ever read some of my chimes at the girl’s blogs at BRAVO.com throughout the seasons then you’re aware of who’s under my microscope. Since we first met the Vicki and her gals of Orange County back in March 2006 and to the casts that have come and gone and to those that my crystal ball tell me are about to go again, I’m fairly certain wannabe royal Lu Lu, never renewed her certification and/or earned any continuing education credits (if they are required by New York State for maintaining her certification) over the three decades since she last used her practical nursing certification.

Yes, that’s right Mrs. de Lesseps . . . consider yourself fortunate I misspelled the word and more accurately described you because you’re NOT a countess and you NEVER will be again unless you marry a count. Do I make myself perfectly clear, Lu Lu? No one wants to hear your silly nonsense about retaining the title from the marriage because you’re the mother of a count’s children. NO ONE. PERIOD. IT’S NOT YOURS TO KEEP. Princess Diana did not get to keep hers. It’s not in keeping with tradition and if you’re in the know of all things etiquette, then you of all people should know. NOW, QUIT YOUR WHINING AND SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT ONCE AND FOR ALL! GET IT . . . GOT IT . . . GOOD! And speaking of good, “GOOD RIDDANCE, LUANN, YOU NO LONGER HAVE ANY POWER HERE. BE GONE, BEFORE SOMEBODY DROPS A HOUSE ON YOU, TOO.”

I guess sometimes it’s just nice to own your own blog and be able to say what’s on your mind without the threat of feeling sensorship. For example, even though we live in the USA, this letter would never fly at any of the housewives’ blogs because none of the ladies would dare to let me share it with their readers’. But then again, if this was the Househusbands of New York, it might stand a chance. Let’s face it, men can take it and women cannot. We’re just wired differently and that’s okay. I’m not saying one is better or the other is wrong. Unless you’re gay. Then, of course, everything’s just right, lol! All I meant to say in paragraph was I can say what I want to say and not even LuAnn can stop me here so, “BITE ME, CUNTESS!” I’ll give her that.

And on a few final notes, perhaps Andy said something on this episode of WWHL that made sense to me and clicked with something inside me; something that America and other countries who thrive on reality shows like Real Housewives feed off of. Whether it’s good, bad or indifferent, it’s today’s trend and it’s art imitating life and often these characters imitate our own lives.

For some people, we are relieved to see we live parallel lives in different universes and for others we’re completely relieved to escape our own emotional universes to take a ride on the Romonacoaster. Watch the New York franchise of Real Housewives on Tuesdays on BRAVO 9/8c. For local listings go to bravotv.com. To hear my chat with Andy, Sonja, and David right now you can click on the headline above this post, What’s your name and from where are you calling? or follow this link http://www.bravotv.com/watch-what-happens-live/season-11/videos/after-show-luann-the-troublemaker. Both links are live and will take you directly to the video. To view all the segments of the May 6th After Show with Andy and his guests, just go to bravotv.com.

My thanks to the man with sexiest voice and host with the most, Andy Cohen, the other divine Miss M., that’s Sonja Morgan from RHONY of course, and film and TV star, the incomparable funny man himself, David Alan Grier. (Bette will be okay. I’m sure she’s not offended. Only God makes the rules and the rest of us should consider us grateful to wake up each day healthy enough to follow them.)

Enjoy and ta ta for now, my Sweetums,

Rita Hayworth Is Stayin’ Alive

Glindalicious Greetings, my darling fans and a HUGE THANKS to each and every one of you as we now usher in the fall!

A fresh post is just around the corner and as the curtain prepares to rise on that and many other Glindalistic announcements that’ll make your head spin off your shoulders, here’s a little treat I’ll know you’ll be thanking me for.

A Preface Before Viewing The Video
American screen legend Rita Hayworth was born October 17, 1918. The ultimate Hollywood bombshell of the wartime 1940’s trained as a dancer and hit stardom as an actress with her appearance in The Strawberry Blonde in 1941. Best known for her performance in Charles Vidor‘s Gilda in the film’s release in the year 1946, her career ended with Ralph Nelson‘s The Wrath of God in 1972. Hayworth died on May 14, 1987 of Alzheimer’s disease.

As you will see, although this video was a labor of love to edit, someone, somewhere had a lot of fun when they took on this project. Interestingly, most of the people in the video were deceased before the Bee Gees recorded Staying Alive. Whether you are a Bee Gees or Rita Hayworth fan or not…you are going to enjoy this. Whoever is responsible for this did a brilliant job of putting these clips together with the music. It is a magnificent marriage of 40’s dancing and this Bee Gees hit.

My personal gratitude, acknowledgement, and professional credit to YouTube, et7, the Bee Gees, and last but not least, the incomparable Rita Hayworth, who still to this day lives in the hearts of many for all the obvious reasons. She would have been 95 next month, on the 17th of October. Enjoy and stay tuned for my next post!

Ta ta for now,

Love Is All You Need?

Paste a Video URL


Alright, so you’re putting me in a position to beg for something… I’m begging for twenty minutes of your time. The best twenty minutes you will spend in a long time stretching your imagination to its limits and testing your inner strength and fortitude, bravery and courage, and last but not least, the resolve you possess to channel your commitment and dedication towards helping change the attitudes of your fellow mankind and in turn the world overall.

Yes, I’m begging you not to leave my site until you’ve watched this video. Of course, if you’re a first-time visitor, I hope you’ll stick around and check out my other posts, one of which includes my own personal video. I also hope you’ll feel inclined to leave a comment and remember to click the “Follow” button and even go to my Facebook page and click the “Like” button.

You’ll find I’m very opinionated about things that matter and write about what people want to hear most. So won’t you please indulge me? I’ll beg you if I must. I’m not proud. I think you’re in for a surprise with this video. Please… all I ask is that you relax, put your worries aside, clear your thoughts, especially if you’re heterosexual and try to use your imagination while viewing this film with an open mind. That’s all I’m asking of you.

If you do, I promise you will walk away a changed person with a bigger heart and a more open and accepting mind. You will also find that within you there is the capacity to love and teach more than you dreamed possible. And if you already can do those things, just sit back and enjoy this short movie and perhaps you can think of someone whose life it can change. Trust me, no matter who you are, it will make you think in directions and take your mind places you didn’t know it could go. It’s what you call “mind-boggling.”

If you’re straight, sit back and spend a little time thinking of this as an exercise in acceptance and pure imagination. At the end you’ll not only be glad you did and be a better person for it, but you’ll also be able to do two things with a sense of accomplishment: 1) Pass this link along to someone you know, and 2) Help educate others as to the importance of acceptance and that being gay isn’t a choice and to understand why treating all people, gay and straight, with dignity and respect is so vital to the longevity and duration of mankind.

That’s how I grew up; that’s how I still live; but it’s not the world I hope to pass on to my children and I pray it gets better for their sake and their children’s sake.

Thank you for reading and thank you for watching this video.

Ta ta for now,



Thank you, Shaun D., who brought this amazing movie to my attention, and whose support and affection towards the GLBTQ community should be an inspiration to us all. Smooches, Shaun!

Okay, so most of you don’t know what’s been going on in my life the past month-and-a-half, but it’s been a somewhat harrowing experience.

You may have subtly noticed the nuances of some discussions interspersed before I made the decision to remove them from the post titled, “EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT…” where I did my best to explain the errant disappearance of my video entry that I worked so hard on and we all so lovingly adored.

Well it all began around that time and it’s finally over. “Praise Jesus,” as Melissa Gorga would say, that manipulating beyotch (yes, you heard it hear first and believe me, Glinda knows all) If you’re RHONJ fan like I am, whether you agree or not, I know what I’m talking about. In any event, this total 37-day reign of terror is OVER!

I’m not at liberty to reveal any of the details as it was necessary to involve the authorities. But suffice it to say, it’s the price you pay for fame I suppose, but it’s worth it for each of you, my darling creatures of bitchiness.

With that said, I‘d like to offer an apology for not having posted anything since the Kar-Trash-ian piece. Moving onward and sorry for delay in a posting. One is right around the corner.

And my usual closing may not make as much sense to you. However, it will provide some of the much needed closure that I will need to put this behind me.

Ta ta for blah blah blah,

P.S. My stalker will take great delight in knowing as of the publishing of this post, thanks to you, my fans, I am now in 42 countries and on 6 continents. THANK YOU!

The Kar-Trash-ians, America’s Unofficial Royals A TRIBUTE TO THE KARTRASHIANS


Credit Nick Saglimbenikimkardashian.celebuzz.com


But here’s why it’s time… I was in the middle of a purrrrfectly delightful slumber, and at my age it’s not uncommon for Mother Nature to pay a call on my bladder several time a night interrupting said slumber. Those of you over age forty know exactly what I mean and those of you who aren’t will find out. “Nanny nanny poo poo! Stick your head in doo doo!” And also, as Mother Nature has a way of forcing the ways of nature to do, she used this to summon my attention once again to [insert dramatic Dragnet theme music here]. There they were. Them. The family I loathe most of all, for all the right reasons. The Kardashians, but for the remainder of this post and for legal reason, I shall refer to as “The Shmartrashians”.

Yes, America’s Royalty. Surely I jest. I WISH! We can’t get rid of them. They’re like cockroaches. And now they’re breeding faster than ever and multiplying at the command of Queen Roach herself, Mama Kartrashian, Kris Kartrashian Jenner. At the top, there’s Mama Kris, the First-Madame-Beast-Pimping-Piece-of-Crap for an excuse of a mother that is known to be! Then of course, there’s Kim; for without whom, she and the notoriety she gained from a sex tape for which she was awarded a cool $5 million dollars, there would be no Shmartrashian Empire, thanks to the brilliant marketing efforts of Mama Pimpstress Kris. As for the rest of the K-K-K Krew — Kourtney and Khloe, koincidence or not — This blogger doesn‘t think so and that‘s enough about that. Ahem… you get my drift? I’m THE most diversity embracing individual there is. I can spot phonies, posers, bigots, and people pretending to embrace diversity for miles. She’s a phony. Khloe, on the other hand, is the real deal. There’s something I just like about that girl. Maybe it’s because she’s not one of them.

Now, believe it or not I don’t really have a beef with these overly-botoxed-injected, plastic surgeon-enhanced fembots their mother produced. However, I do wonder what they would have looked like if mommy hadn’t encouraged them, or should I say, not supported their decisions to have elective surgeries at such young ages. In my opinion, it’s just fucking crazy. I mean look what happened to her wife, I mean husband. You get the point. Kourtney is just a ditz who breeds out of wedlock like everyone else these days (Glinda doesn’t judge) and has the worst taste in men. Namely, Scott Limpdick. We’ll get to him a little later.

And then there’s Rob, one of the nation’s leading douchetards, and nominated by me as Most Likely To Fail at Anything He Sets Out To Never Do. What a lazy bum! Why he’s about as lazy as that protégé brother-in-law of his, Scott Dismal, I mean, Disick. Jesus! This family makes my stomach turn in directions I didn‘t know were physiologically possible! In any event, this is actually when my story begins. I was focusing my eyes onto the television set which was still on and there he was… Blobert. He was in the kitchen stuffing his fat face with food in one scene, being criticized by his sister Kim for it in the same scene and in the very next scene as well. The very next scene takes place in another room of the mcmansion. The two of them were sitting side-by-side watching a movie while he was chowing down on a bowl of ice cream and being put-down by Kim again! Look Kim, if Fatty McPatty wants his ice cream, and to eat it too like the rest of you, let him stuff his fat face and SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY! JESUS CHRIST! Eventually he’ll just have it sucked out like the rest of you.

I do however, pity the teenage girls, Kendall, 17 and Kylie, 15, to some small degree despite the fact that apples don’t fall far from the tree. At least they have Bruce for a father, so there’s a ray of hope. But look what happened to the relationship between him and his kids from his two marriages. The first to Chrystie Crownover from which he had two children, Burt Jenner, 35 and Casey Jenner, 33. And his ex-wife Linda Thompson who gave him Brandon, 32 and Brody, 30. Just sayin’. That’s six paternal kids in all. Glinda’s thinking, SHIT! His dick must be tired!

And you know what? The two girls fathered by Kris & Bruce Jenner (Bruce, the former Olympic star turned pussy-whipped Mr. Kris Jenner) are on the fast track to their step-sisters sad lives. They are no better from what I’ve watched and read, not that it’s any fault of their own since they’re just kids. But it’s sad because in this case they are a product of their environment and they will become their mother, the queen of that environment unless someone saves them before it’s too late. God only knows it’s already too late for the older three half-sisters. And the only one in that trio that makes a bit of sense is Khloe and that’s because I’m still not convinced she shares the same biological father as Kim and Kourtney. From her amazon-model-height to a certain je ne sais quoi about her, as much as I despise this family, I like her. So in this case the apple falling a little farther from the tree may have been to her advantage!

What I’m trying to say is this: Who do they think they are? Why do they believe they deserve all this fame? And FUCK RYAN SEACREST for Executive Producing the fuck out of them into fame, Fortune, and STARDOM! I think he’s to blame for a lot of this in the first place! This asshole, host of American Idol, even poses with them in their infamous annual Christmas photo.

But if for one minute you think it’s because I’m jealous, you’re dead wrong. I’m simply sick of seeing every one of their footsteps, farts, shits, breaths, coughs, sneezes, and plastic faces plastered everywhere I turn, and then tracked on the media! I’m also sick to death of these asstard designers who fodder them with their wares and throw money at them later for advertising whatever it is they wear for them or do for them.

And then there’s the money they make hand-over-fist for “appearances.” What a load of crap that is. And they get paid for this. As Roseanne Roseannadanna woulda said, “It makes a me sick!”

How does one ever forget the self-proclaimed Lord of the Douchebags, Scott Dismal, er, I mean Di-Sick, oops… there goes my word processor again with a mind of its own. “Scott Disick”. This muntard actually purchased his knighthood off the internet while taking a trip to the U.K. with his unofficial royal family members. Apparently, he paid $197 online to get a document with a unique seal and small certificate to match his penis, a pamphlet on how to use your title to the fullest. (A pamphlet on how to use people not included, but he already has that one. In fact, I believe he wrote it!) And lastly, where Lord Douchey-douche is concerned, he also sought out a ceremony to solidify his title, which probably isn’t typically included in the average internet purchase, while jack-arsing his way around London. Why this Lord of the Douches even tweeted recently, “Guess what? Were fucking famous now! (Kourts words).” He recorded Kourtney while she was driving, although she was obviously being coaxed by him to say it. In the :11 second video he was basically trying to recreate a conversation he just had with her and was trying to get her to say it again so he could record it. What a douche! Consider the following link Lord Douchebag provided on his Twitter account last Friday an early holiday present from yours truly, https://www.keek.com/!rdIEcab. Readers, you’ll be happy to know I sent the newest lord a timely and appropriately “Glinda-esque” tweet to put him in his place.

And now for the newest memba-to-be of the other First Family. Not that I have any respect for kanye West, in fact, I don’t think my computer does either since it didn’t even AutoCorrect his name when I typed it in, and this must really piss his ego off when that happens. I’ll bet he even contacted Microsoft to see if they would do something about it and when they told him “no,” that was the day he stopped smiling.

kanye’s, oops… see I told you so, Kanye’s another piece of shit in his own right. The only place he’s a legend is exactly where you know I’m going to say, “his mind!” Shame on him for beating the crap out of some paparazzi’s equipment. For Chrissake kanye, this is what you signed up for! Just who in the name of Jesus H. Christ does this A-DOUBLE- ASSTARD think he is? Well, you know what they say, “Birds of feather FLUCK together!” CHEEEESE AND RICE! And was this a$$tard Kanye born without the smile muscle or just an extra A$$ muscle? Just sayin’.

All in the name of money, money, money. It seems their leader would rather have money than a normal relationship with her family from the way the “Triple K Threat-to-the-World Girls” have described it on the E! hit show, Keeping Up With The Shmartrashians. Mumsy works all day pimping them out at appearances and God only knows what else and not enough time planning “family time” with them or her pussy-whipped husband, Bruce.

What’s more, that fatherfucker-fucktard of a mother of theirs, the queen leader of them all, has orchestrated the birth of her royal grandchild heir to her thrown on the exact same day as HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton! Coincidence? Once again I think not, my darlings. Staged and purposeful, for publicity that will yield the almighty dollar that she will no doubt find a way to conceal from the IRS, probably by passing through a bogus church created by herself or a member of her team in order for their “pledges to the church” to be written-off.

But in the end Kim couldn’t fit her fat ass into regular designer clothes or fake being “normal” any longer and neither could her kid. Either way, her mother’s plot was foiled when Kanye’s spawn arrived early to say, “Hey Bitches, I’m kickin’ myself outta this joint with my mutha’s $6,000 furry bootie heel things she wore at Fashion Week for Daddy’s Show last March 6, 2012!”

So you see, the baby is really for our benefit. They get the money and we get another one of them. OMG!!! DELIVER US FROM EVIL!!! Y-E-S, YOU BETCHA!!! And if that doesn’t drive my point home I don’t know what will. Which leads me to the final point of all, the photo I posted for this piece, what a doozy, huh. FYI: This BITCH OF ALL BITCHES, the bitch that all the other bitches report to, Mama Shmartrashian, had the gall to have the family publicist alert the media as to the release date of their 2010 Family Christmas Card and its importance to the nation. Mind you, this protocol is reserved exclusively for royalty and First Families. Period. Just who the hell do they think they are? Perhaps now you understand my contempt for these holier-than-thou fucktards. When will enough be enough? How about now? Why don’t we all just boycott these asstards and stop watching them?! SHUT THE MUTHAFUCKAS DOWN! And that little assturd Ryan Seacrest, too!

Well that’s all FOR NOW, unless our First Amendment rights, the right speak freely and without censorship, and which is quoted by our government as “Congress shall make no law…abridging freedom of speech,” is stripped away from us once and for all, I say, “THERE WILL BE MORE TO COME.”

Kardashian Family… You’ve been served, GLINDA-STYLE! Bruce, run as fast as you can!

Ta ta for now, my little darlings,


Now I heard a rumor some time ago that a church was formed by Mama Bear that is used to donate “money” in the name of “charity” for the purpose of “tax write-offs” for the “Shmartrashian Empire”. Whether or not it’s true and where and how I heard it, I honestly can’t remember. But I’ll tell you this… I honestly wouldn’t put it past her. After all, she did get in touch with an old flame while married to Bruce Jenner, also known as Mr. Kris Jenner, so you do the math. What do you think?

I suppose many of you are wondering why you haven’t been able to vote for your hostess with the mostess’ video since sometime between Friday and Saturday, June 28th and 29th, of last week. Well you’re not going to believe why. Pour yourself a cold one, a hot one, a hard one, a soft one, or whatever’ll get you through this because if I could get from this trip to Hell and back thanks to this Douchebag Aaron at AlphaMConsulting who sponsored the contest for the good people at Male Basics, then you’re going to have to endure it too.

Look folks, it boils down to this and then I’ll share some details with you: According to Aaron, and this comes straight from the horses ass, er, I mean mouth, he had a problem with a stalker about a year ago. I learned this because I placed a call to him to compliment the content of his YouTube sight in addition to his presentation, and after a bit of pleasantries were exchanged, I fessed up and told him I was one of the entrants of the contest. He giggled, wished me luck, and the call pretty much ended there. It was a great call and I think he would agree with no hesitation whatsoever.

But here’s where it gets downright messy followed by dirty then ugly. All of which will be furnish with the hardcore proof. The week of the aforementioned phone call to Aaron, I did some pretty heavy phone campaigning regarding the contest. All totally fair and square. I played completely by the book. Now as you’re all aware if you viewed the video at the YouTube site, there were several very juvenile and unsophisticated viewers who are too asstarded to fully comprehend the ingenuity of Aaron the Dickhead’s philosophy therefore rendering them at the ultimate height of ignorance. So much so, they had the gall to give each of the 4 contestants at the time “thumbs-down” votes. How fucking childish! This sorta shit makes me wish I thought twice about getting involved in the contest in the first place.

The other thing you should know is I put a great deal of energy, preparation, but most of all, my valuable time into the production of this video along with help from my family and friends. It became a labor of love which I couldn’t wait to wrap-up once we started because I was excited for you, my fans, to see it. And who can’t use new undies and bragging rights to a contest every now and then, right? Plus it’s not like I was the star quarterback in high school or college or 6’1” and walking the catwalk as a male model. No… I wasn’t that fortunate, but I am very fortunate in many other regards and wouldn’t change a thing about my life, past or present, “for all the tea in China.”

At this point the story begins to thicken and take a turn for the worse unbeknownst to me. And the worst part of it is, as my efforts are about to be pulled from beneath me like a rug, I later came to strongly suspect that the culprit plotted my demise while I was working on something unrelated to the contest for the culprit just because I’m a “nice guy.” I was doing all this for Aaron, which you will read about shortly, and paid the price for someone else’s actions a year ago. Are you keeping up with me?

Now the subject of “nice guys” happened to come up in my phone call to Aaron which is why I am mentioning it now. And the reason I’m mentioning it again now is because his attitude changed all of a sudden when out of the goodness in my heart, and I swear to you, on all that is good and holy, I sent him a total of six emails (all of which will be cut and pasted below for your perusal without being edited) that turned his nose out of joint. How do I know this? He came right out and told me so when I point-blank asked him if that’s why he was offended by me for taking it upon myself to correct the editorial problems that JUMPED OFF one of the home pages at me while I was visiting his two websites, AaronMarino.com and iamalpham.com. It seems his ego couldn’t handle that very well. So many, that I decided to take time from my busy schedule to write him.


I tried to call him but he wouldn’t return my two phone calls, each leaving a short, calm message stating it was important and that my video for his contest was no longer available for people to vote on. The very video I was campaigning so hard at for viewers to go to and vote for! Furthermore, he blocked me from having further access to the channel after I posted a comment addressed to the entrants and viewers stating why my video was gone and what I suspected he did. He promptly removed the comment. What does his actions tell you when I put every word out there for everyone to see in black and white?

Finally, I received an email followed by a short, unpleasant return phone call over an hour later, that my gut told me something wasn’t right. I didn’t jump to conclusion as it took me a little while to process and get a few other people involved before we put all the pieces together, but we finally did and when we did were we SHOCKED!!!

So please take just a little more time to read the following emails that transpired between Aaron and myself. Also, bear in mind the fact I stated in one of them the work was being offered without charge because it’s just the kind of guy I am and that perhaps one day we could talk about bartering services with each other, or not… whatever. I kept it very casual. You will need to make that assessment on your own. The point is, at the end of the day he took everything completely personal ,and in his final email time-stamped Saturday, June 29, 2013 6:56:13 PM, and after sharing the email with several colleagues, it was clear it was Aaron who pulled the video down. Additionally, there is even proof below to backup the goodwill gesture I made by supporting his business on my GlindaTheGoodBitch Facebook page and featuring it with a highlighted space and pinning it up at the top, front and center. What more could he ask for? He thanked me by saying, “Thank you kind sir!” Look for yourself below if you don’t believe me. I would NEVER lie.

If you had asked me a month ago when Aaron announced the contest at his YouTube site and contemplated entering if I ever imagined myself in this place now, I would have told you you’re out of your mind! As soon as he announced it I had a clear vision of what I wanted to do and how the video would look and even then I knew I had a chance at winning. I couldn’t know then my competition would be so lean, but that really didn’t matter to me because I had so much fun doing it for you, winning was a bonus for me. It’s not that it meant nothing because like I said before, my time is valuable and I spent a ton of time writing it and doing the pre-production work, shooting it, post-production work, proving instructions to the friend who edited it for me since I have no expertise in that area whatsoever. (SHOUT-OUT to Steve K. and his wife, USPA Pageant Queen Lynn, for giving him up to me for some time to deal with my Glindaisms!) Videos like that don’t happen over night. And it’s not like I was trying to fix the contest by swaying Aaron’s decision. IT CAN’T BE FIXED. At least not that I’m aware of. The votes come from independent IP addresses and the contest cannot be fixed. Unless of course, someone who is capable of pulling your video down, removes it from their site. Do you see what I’m saying. He’s the site administrator at YouTube’s AlphaMconsulting’s channel. Now we both know what really happened, Aaron, don’t we? And that’s all I’m going to say about that. Period. Mighty suspicious given the facts now, wouldn’t you say? Shame on you, Aaron.

It comes down to this. After all was said and done, much more was said than done. And now I believe he regrets it. What he SHOULD do is own up to it and extend a public apology, among other gestures, don’t your think? THIS IS DOWNRIGHT FRAUD THAT HAS BEEN PERPETRATED. He tried to convince me I took my own video down. Other events occurred which I cannot go into due to an ongoing investigation involving this matter that may lead to a full-blown investigation, but all I can say is this: WHO HERE THAT READS THE BLOG WENT TO THE ALPHAMCONSULTING YOUTUBE SIGHT AND VIEWED THE ENTRIES ALONG WITH MINE AND THINKS MY VIDEO WAS THE HANDS-DOWN WINNER AS OF JULY 3, 2013? YOU MAY BE SUBPOENED!!! So feel free to write in with your comments to this post and in the mean time, please read the emails below. Thank you.

I wasn’t kidding the other day when I said I wasn’t as computer savvy as I am with the written word. So that leads me to my final question for you. When you posted the video for the contest, which I have to say I think you did a brilliant job promoting and I’m disappointed the response wasn’t more resounding. However, with that said I don’t quite understand what you meant by getting people to “Like” the video anywhere you can. For example, when I posted my video at my Facebook pages and GlindaTheGoodBitch (on Facebook) does that mean you (Aaron) go to those pages and look at the “Like” buttons and add those numbers to the count at Youtube when tallying the totals? And what about my Twitter, MySpace, et ceteras. Granted, I’ll give myself a pat on the back when it comes to writing, but I leave all the computer mumbo-jumbo to the other guys even if you’re one of ’em!

Please let me know. I’m curious because I really want to do everything I can to blow that douche from across the pondSCUM out of the water, LOL!

Hey Aaron,

Thanks for getting back to me. I pride myself as you do on “doing this right” so if you don’t like what I’m about to present I can either nix it altogether or make any modification you propose. Now please don’t mind if I get a little personal with you. It’s only because it has to do with the copy below I’ll be using for the post. Personally, I have presumed you to be completely straight, but hey, I could be wrong and quite frankly I won’t be offended if you are (LOL!) and IMO [In My Opinion] it’s nobody’s business what your sexual preference is. Also, please check the endorsement copy for accuracy of website data too if you’re still interested in approving this. Without further ado, I present for your consideration…

And for the men that visit GlindaTheGoodBitch’s Facebook page,
be sure to check out Aaron Marino’s website at http://aaronmarino.com AND his YouTube channel,
Not only does he offer THE BEST fashion advice and advice on all things image related,
he just happens to be one of the cutest guys walkin’ the streets of Atlanta! So check him out.
And Just so you know… Aaron is NOT gay. I heard it “straight” from the horses mouth!
He’s just so cute you’d swear he’s one of us!
(Sorry boiz of my persuasion, but there are other fish in the sea. Well, you know what I mean.)
Smooches! :{}

Please let me know what you think.

Ciao for now,

P.S. If you’re ever in town and I’m doing a show, please let me know. I really think you’d get a kick out of what I do!

Thanks for the reply. Happy Friday! Have a great night and weekend. And just so you know, I own a company that provides business services which includes services that includes copy writing, editorial, creative writing, and things of that nature. If I can ever do anything for you, please let me know. Since it’s for you, I doubt very much there’d be a charge involved unless it required me to stop sleeping for a couple of days or weeks or you needed me to fly out of town and I needed you to help with the expenses for a big project you wanted to me to consult you on. But you’ve been so kind and I typically go with my gut when either bartering services or offering gratis because I am a firm believer in karma and all that. I believe in your success the way I hope you believe in mine.

God Bless and try these on for size. Compliments of Glinda.

Let Alpham maintain your competitive edge
Let Alpham put your image where it counts

In the future, we may want to discuss ideas to reinvent your tagline, logo, existing trademarks, et ceteras. I just took the liberty of getting a head start for you. I hope you don’t mind. When it’s time to refresh your look as all companies should from time to time to maintain a competitive edge, I’ll be more than happy to work with you on this if you like… GRATIS! My creative juices are often bursting from all sides so it would be my pleasure. And if you don’t want me involved at all, I won’t be offended in the least.

Alright my friend, please don’t consider this a bribe in any way. I’m in the contest for the fun of it though it would be nice to win. I’m just being the Christian I was raised to be. I think if more people were like you and me, the world just might not be in the mess it’s in.

An email to Aaron from Glinda:
Subject/Date: Okay Aaron, your promo is up and appears on my Facebook page… June 28, 2013 10:10 PM
as a “Hilighted” item and I will put one up at the blog when the contest is over since I don’t want to overdue anything at this point even though nothing wrong is being done anyway. In my prior email you didn’t answer my question about being straight or not so I left the part in about “straight from the horses mouth” and since you replied the way you did, as much as I hate to assume, I just went with it and will assume my original assumption was right. Oh well, my peeps will just have to get over it! LOL! I hope you like the way it looks!

And as a gesture of kindness, when I was perusing your aaronmarino.com site, I noticed a few things my other business would also typically bring to your attention as far as the services we provide. You may want to have your site administrator or yourself correct these items so your douchey critics don’t bring them to your attention for you. They are but not limited to:

1. Under Newsletter: The word isn’t is missing the apostrophe
2. Though the quotes should remain unedited, the “~” or tilde, or just a long dash is missing next to Tommy S’ name which is often commonly placed adjacent to the authors name for whom the quote belongs
3 At the very footer of the page in terms of grammar it should read, “Also visit our social profiles: (followed by the link icons below it)
4. I would use all available social medias available that apply to your sites. I see that Pinterest is missing. Is that intentional?
5. You need a period at the end of that lovely quote at the bottom of your main page, “I don’t sell products… ” And who is the author of the quote? You I presume. But it would look nice if you put your name there, either flush left or right to authenticate it.

And lastly, believe it or not I also have a couple of great video suggestions for Alpham’s YouTube channel if you’re ever stuck for some ideas plus a few really good suggestions for the website. Let me know if you’re ever up for a chat. I just don’t always have the time to sit down and compose these emails. As you can see, I’m a Virgo (actually, on the cusp of Virgo and Leo so I pick whatever horoscope is better in the magazine and newspapers!) so I’m a perfectionist when even writing an email unlike some people I’ve come to know, AARON!!! J J (Just kidding, I never hold that against anyone. That’s what I’m here for!) So if we can schedule a time to talk on the phone it tends to be a little less time consuming for my hectic schedule if you don’t mind. And again, if you’re just not interested and have your own peeps already, I won’t be offended. I’m not looking for anything. Just being a nice guy, that’s all.

Now I didn’t scrutinize the tabs at the site as I would for a job so-to-speak, but if you would like, let me know. I’m just a little cRAzY with all things Glinda right now. I can hardly keep up with the bitch.

Okay, it’s back to campaigning for a Alphamconsulting/Male Basics Underwear Makeover Contest victory for me. And like I said, if you’re ever in the New York area and I’m doing a show, I’d love to comp you tickets.

Have a great weekend!

Subject/Date: OMG, Aaron please don’t hate me but… June 28, 2013 11:31 PM
when I was crossing all the items off my pad I realized I neglected to transfer two of the problems I noticed at the http://aaronmarino.com/ website to the email I sent you. I’m really sorry to keep sending you these emails but as long as you are going into the site to make these changes, you may as well have them all. This should complete the list but like I said it was just a cursory review so please don’t hold me to it. I may have missed something else.

Edits requiring your attention at http://aaronmarino.com/, continued:

6. Under the section at the top of the home page titled, “Get The alpha m. Top Ten Image Killers NOW!” (I might have written this copy differently, but I don’t have time right now to do a rewrite, but I will after the holiday if you would like me to. Let me know.)
a. Italicize the word complimentary v. the way it stands now (you may consider bold facing it also)
b. You should put a comma after your name and;
c. Italicize the name of your book from beginning to end, e.g., …authored by Aaron Marino, Top Ten Image Killers and How to Fix Them
d. The text in the second sentence would flow better if it was worded, “Go for it and sign up!”
e. The word it’s is missing the apostrophe

Remember my friend… these websites and anywhere else you promote yourself are all about your image and you cannot risk that… EVER. Your business is built on it my friend. Just sayin’.

Be well and call me with any questions,

Aaron, with all due respect I was reaching out to you THIS TIME with a problem concering your contest. And in case you didn’t read my other emails, I wasn’t asking you free advice or help. It was the other way around. In my opinion I don’t think this is decent of you at all and it doesn’t explain where my video is.

To be honest your persistent emails and 5 calls over the past 3 days are more than I can handle. I don’t have time or energy to have this type of interaction. I value my time and privacy. I give my time and energy for free on YouTube but that is where I need to draw the line . I wish you the best and don’t intend to insult you. Good luck. This is my attempt to be decent and email you an explanation.
Take care

I’ve done all I can to upload the video again. Nothing on my end is working. I don’t know what I did to offend you to have to send me the very abrupt email you sent. It’s all part of running a contest. I suppose you should be glad you didn’t have many contestants to deal with if that’s how you handled me. And can you at least put yourself in my shoes when I am the contestant who entered your contest and I’m the one who had to experience this? It really sucked Aaron. Oh well, what can I say? I guess I’m out of it.

Be well,

P.S. The work I sent you, if you care to do anything with it, is on me. I would appreciate your comments on it at the very least. It’s the right thing to do. Yes, it’s true… I know you didn’t ask me to do it but just the kind of guy I am. There aren’t many like me out there and I’m a good friend to have. Whatever. Like I also said, I don’t really need the underwear. I just wanted you to know there was a problem and my video wasn’t there anymore. Thanks for your abrupt reply.

So what do you think, Glinda Readers?

Ta ta for now,
