Backlash? What Backlash?

-
-
In wake of LaPrimaDonna's article posted on Stardoll's Most Hated Website about our favorite Stardoll heir actually being Daily*Tabloid, I found writing and researching this article both appropriate and relevant. Throughout the past year, Stardoll has been turned upside down as some of its most infamous users were exposed as liars, scammers, crazy bitches, and 12-year-old boys (I might have even hired one). So, as I slowly put together the pieces I pondered the thought of how some of the 'victims' (including Fakeshake3, BeverlyHillsHei, Teale, and Springate) had been treated differently following their stories breaking, most of which on Stardoll's Most Hated Website.
-
Case One: Teale Goes Ape Sh*t, FakeShake Becomes 'The Snake'
-
-
Teale, where do I begin? Everything started out innocently enough; she was that somewhat annoying user who used to send hundreds of broadcasts telling us she was happy, or had added more colors to her huge, nasty Beyonce weave. Then things got juicy - relatively fast! In the good 'ol days of Stardoll, chaos erupted when Teale was cited as a well known user/abuser of the 'loophole' of Stardoll. So she ripped off hundreds of users and then pocketed thousands of virtual Stardollars, that was just the beginning.
-
Teale (with Runway.Fashion slowly falling out of relevancy) stepped into her role as the CRAZY BITCH in town after the loophole was splashed across every Stardoll Gossip Blog from here to Mexico. At first, TEAM TEALE was as strong as ever, FakeShake3 (See Below) had admitted lying about her role in the 'loophole conspiracy' and Teale was portrayed as a saint.
-
Then, out of the blue, the tides were turned and Teale was exposed for the axe-wound she really is. She sent her evil groupies on unsuspecting users and ordered her new-found fanclub around like the Wicked Bitch of the West. In her case, after she was exposed, there was a very prominent backlash. Deserved? We think so.
-
FakeShake Becomes "The Snake"
-
-
Not all cases ended the way Hilfof's (that name still gets me) did. In true gossip blog fashion, all press is good press. While it is unlikely that Stardoll users will ever forget Ellie's admition of guilt which assured users that Teale was not as manipulative as she had been deemed (innocent days!) and that she has flat-out lied about everything she had said. After she admitted her shady ways, Ellie became an overnight sensation. Members flocked to her userpage, her guestbook overflowed with admiring comments, and gifts by the gallon load were dropped into her suite. So...what the fudge? No backlash came, apart from that of angered users who demanded to know the loophole. Of course she may not be as well-respected as she once was by those who are over the age of 13-years-old, but she admiring fans still pour onto her page every minute.
-
Case Two: Springate Grows A Pair
-
-
My love, my fellow blog writer, my adopted little bro, Springate wasn't always known as "The Boy With A Fashion Sense," he was once know as the 18-year-old NYC whore who liked to get dirty and over the top. Blaire (his 'name') was an out of control, attention whoring, uber bitch... then things changed...drastically.
-
I remember the shock I felt as I read that Blaire was actually Anthony/Blaire who was really just Anthony, was a boy. I remember the hateful comments, the out of control headlines, and the 12-year-old boy who was caught in the middle. Anthony, unlike Ellie or even Teale, recieved such a disgustingly vile treatment after he was exposed for who he was. The vindictive and cruel messages that were littered throughout his guestbook, blog message boards, and even his friend requests.
-
So, my question is, how can someone punish another person who actually took responsibility for his actions with a genuine sense of regret, but will not do the same for someone who is obviously lacking in morality or integrity? The detail of the whole ordeal that really shocked me was that older users would band together to, basically, cyber-bully a 12-year-old. Let's be honest with ourselves, that shit is just messed up. There is no other way to explain how low some people would have to be, or how horribly bored someone had to be with their own pathetic exsistence, that they would target someone younger and more naive then them. Not saying that Springy couldn't hold his own, but it's the idea of it that truly gets me. Watch out, because karma is a bitch.
-
-
Our last, and most recent, case is Ashley Wilson who is better known to the Stardoll world as BeverlyHillsHei. Barely two more then two weeks have passed since more damning evidence (presented by LaPrimaDonna) has been published on Stardoll's Most Hated Website. Oddly enough... not much has changed. I personally wonder if it is the fact that the new school year has pulled many preteens and teens out of their Stardoll induced comas, that people already suspected her, or if people just don't care.
-
Ashley is an amazingly sweet (ask anyone, they'll tell you the same) person. I have a feeling that her constant kindness and carefree atitude help people to look past the drama and, somewhat, not believe the rumors. Is that fair, or right? Can someone justify the backlash that occured to Anthony, and explain how it didn't occur for Ashley?
-
At the end of the day, it seems so obvious that people from all around the world log in to Stardoll everyday to act in their roles that our virtual society has created for them. We want behave as we see acceptable, so punishing people for their mistakes is almost second nature. We're basically attempting to mimic an actual functioning society in which there are rules, villians, heros, wannabes, rumors, liars, and so much more; it is then, and only then, that we temporarily leave our realities and truly lose ourselves within the mock-society of Stardoll.

sO now you're reporting on what other people have already reported? With the small addition of the fact that you think people should be meaner to Ashley because they were mean to springate? am I getting that? Because I'm having trouble piecing together your point here. anyway, I think people were meaner to Anthony because he was such an annoying thundercunt before, that he made it easy for people to hate on "Blair" and himself. He was not a likeable person as Blair, and he is only slightly more likeable as Anthony.

Ashley has always been well-liked, and most people already had suspected that she was Daily*Tabloid, they just wanted/needed the proof that LaPrimaDonna and Perez provided. but really they already had an idea and had accepted it, and her, anyway. I do believe that she is D*T, and I do believe the sweet and innocent song & dance has been an act. It's perfect. She can be "rich", popular, loved Ashley on her BeverlyHillsHei account, and then she can let her bitch flag fly on D*T without any judgement because nobody knows it's her. Except now everybody knows...

The Snake experienced a major backlash. She is not and has never been well-liked, and ever since the bad press even people in her inner circle do not trust her and talk about her behind her back. I should know because I am one of them. The only true fans she has left are her brainwashed/mindless cronies (Puccapo, modelisous, etc) who still don't realize that all she does is use them, and then of course as you said the younger members who admire her because of the clothing she has. her possessions are her only remaining redeeming quality, if you can even call it that.

Teale is best ignored and forgotten. As Fag_Puff famously said "Teale has no friends, she just has flying monkeys who go and attack people who don't kiss her cellulite, and they only do it so they can feel they have a purpose." The perfect way to describe her. She is/was without a doubt the Wicked Witch Bitch of Stardoll.

Lol.
I dont agree with what yourmom.com said, In a way.
Teale Bugs me.
I kinda knew her, and did an interveiw with her once (MiSS-SOPHiA is MWA!) for my mag (Which I never finished coz its a boring fucking hobby), and then I got to know her on her new account (After Hifof) and she had a go at me because I added her.
Shes the rudest Bitch I have ever known.

Amazing post, tells me everything I needed to know about the gossip in Stardoll! It gives me a much more clear view on the little bit I already knew.

lovinitlovinit said...

Ahh, those WERE the good ole' days. No one beleives me when I say this, but SERIOUSLY. If you had to describe classic stardoll this is it. Either way you DO have to admit the stats of elitness WERE relevant--this is the period where everyone shot up into stardom. Le Chambre, DJ Dav, Perez, the Loop, Glance.Models, Style Magazine, you get the jist. So yeah, though everyone may say "Ughh that was like the Dark Ages" for me, it is the past. And I miss it. Everyone loves a good catfight!Well--I take that first part back. Sorta. I DO miss it, but if it had never happened, I would have never made the friends I have now. Lord, I remember the Anthony/Blaire phase. That was when I first met Anthony, LOL. Ahhhhhhhh GOOD times.

cece said...

I call it Star War I.
The day I got hacked over 3 times met some people who knew the hackers got my account back good times, good times..OR NOT! (DUN DUN DUN) lol

morgan said...

yeah i was just going to say the same thing yourmom, this whole article is just repeating what other blogs (namely perez) have already reported. i hardly consider speculating on and "researching" the backlash to help this qualify as an original article. furthermore i think it's mean that you're encouraging people to be meaner to ashley out of some sick loyalty to and sympathy for springate and how he was treated.

morgan said...

not to mention you took most of these pictures from perez's blog and failed to credit her for them.

Undamyumbrellla said...

Actually 'morgan', Britney did give credit for those pictures. (read the bottom of the post)

Britney said...

Morgan, use your eyes. The credit is given at the bottom of the article, and no I am not encouraging people to backlash Ashley; I'm comparing the different treatment between the two users. It's an article that examines how some users are treated differently, whether they deserve it or not, after their lies have been exposed.

I like Ashley, Anthony, and Ellie just fine. I just can't find reason for why Anthony was treated differently.

kelsey said...

Morgan, read the last fucking line of the post, and pay attention next time holy.
-.-

Anonymous said...

Maybe people are mean to SpringBOY because he's a faaaag.

morgan said...

that couldn't have been there the whole time... are you all messing with me? if it was then my bad, but you've still just recycled someone else's reports and pictures, added your two cents worth, and called it an article. and in my opinion people treated anthony differently because not many people liked him before he "confessed" and not many more like him now.

p.s. there's no need to put my name in quotes, it's my real name (as opposed to the lyrics to a rihanna song).

Britney said...

It was there the whole time and I see what you're saying about Anthony/Blaire. When it comes down to it, no one liked "Blaire" like they do Ashley or Ellie.

As for me recylcing others reports, that's not true. No one has ever touched on the backlashes of these girls. Sure they've called them out on their shit, but they've never did a checkup to see what had happened after the fact. This article was meant to be like a 'Where are they now..' type thing.

You'd think that after their stories broke, which were by other blogs which I credited, they'd be treated differently. The story is about how some are and other aren't. It's meant to be more of a follow up to all of the most scandalous stories.

morgan said...

call it whatever you like. i'm just calling it as i'm seeing it.

Rhiann said...

anonymous,
Why dont you grow a pair and post your name?
The only thing more pathetic than posting a weak insult at Anthony like that, is posting a weak insult and being cowardly enough not to post your name.

Anonymous said...

always the same shit rhiann, i've seen you post THE SAME SHIT over and over and over again, GET OVER IT. there isn't any point to posting a name because the people who do it's probably not their real name anyway and almost everyone on stardoll is lying about who they really are so who cares???

and YES i'm posting this ANONYMOUSLY. boo fucking hoo.
