The topic of her clothing business is the last item on my long list of irritations (but I will say that those tunics/dresses cost approx $5 to actually make, and shes selling them for WAY too much – hence always having mega blowout sales at the end of each season).

 

I am way more irritated by her "hot topic" posts which tries so hard to push her (obscene) views on all of her readers. Read her thoughts on gun control, breast feeding, politics etc and you will lose your mind! I have no problems with people posting their thoughts and views on hot button topics, but please, be open minded about opposing views!

 

For example, her newest post about Chris Kyle. I hope she has a change of mind about her previous post on gun control – how on earth could she say that guns are not an issue in America after her husbands co-worker/close friend was so unfortunately killed by one?

I don't know if this effects her views on gun control, but her husband is or at least was an avid gun collector. A couple of years ago he sold a boatload of guns for a lot of money – I think he was asking for a couple hundred thousand for the whole collection. She has also posted photos from a hunting trip they both took to Africa.

Oh yes, it 100% effects her views. He works at Craft International which trains police/military/civilians how to use guns. Their moto is "despite what your mama told you…violence does solve problems". So revolting.

^ Wow, I didn't know that. Does anyone know anything about his background? I think I read somewhere that he is some kind of oil heir. I know his brother is cozy with the Bush twins.

No idea who this person is but a quick Google search said, "Luxury Resort & Bohemian Chic Designs".

 

…and I hate her already.

I'm soooo excited someone posted this!! We have discussed her on the rich bloggers thread…. she is beyond wealthy, thanks to her husband, which is why she has her horrible fashion business. Her paleo/lazy parents posts are the WORST- in which she judges other mothers for not being paleo and claiming they must hate their kids. Also, the time she judged poor mothers for buying food at McDonalds (you could buy strawberries for the price of a happy meal! Uhhh so what else do they eat then??!)

 

I liked her pregnancy style but I would get SO annoyed by all of her showing off. She regularly wears outfits on her blog that cost over $1,000 per outfit. 

Has anyone heard her back story? Apparently she went to private school someone and was fat. Someone called her out on that (and on possibly gold digging) on one of her posts.

I took Sheridan French off my Reader when she posted imaging (I can't remember if it was an xray, MRI, CT scan, or what) that her friend, whose husband was an ER doctor, sent her of a woman who had been in a car accident while talking on her cell phone the night before.  It boggled my mind that a doctor would share that with his wife, who would then turn around and send it to her friend, who would post it on such a public platform.  There were enough details that it could definitely compromise the victim's identity. At best an error of judgement (which she must have realized, because she deleted the post), at worst a HIPAA violation. 

 

The stuff with the guns – ugh, that makes me despise her even more.

Yeah she gives a condensed version of her background on the blog, but the comments sections really does give most of her real background! 

Her condensed version goes something like this: We know she went to St.Andrews in Scotland for college, found herself living in London interning for Prada, moved back to Texas. Got in a car wreck. Fell out of a serious relationship. Met Bo. Married Bo after knowing each other for like, 9 months. Was preggers immediately. Had her first son West. Got pregnant with her daughter Mazarine. And then had her second son Hawthorne. (Also, please, those names – she doesn't say them on the blog, but are SO easily found on nameberry.com). Somewhere in there she opened her clothing line. 

But the real version from reading her comments section, you can see she was briefly married before meeting Bo. And lost alot of weight somewhere in there too (maybe that would explain why she is such a huge proponent of paelo now?).  I want those details – be authentic, your readers want the real you! 

And its not only her husbands family who are wealthy. There is a section of the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens named after her grandmother or something, which she mentions in a couple of her blog posts. Want to see how wealthy her husbands family is though? Take a look at those christmas photos and look at the interior of that house….

I like her style, but I can't get into her clothing designs.  I gave her the first dose of side-eye when she wrote a massive post about a critical comment someone left on her blog.  She encouraged a dog pile on the commenter, who she named.  Around the election, I think she made some comments about Obama.  I unfollowed, and haven't been back until today.  Oh look!  There she is with Paul fucking Ryan.  Good gracious.  Going back a little father, she posts walls and walls of text about guns and how awful gun control is.

tl;dr Her style is pretty generic and I disagree with her about most social and political issues.  I don't feel like I've been missing anything.  Her tantrums are funny, though.

Where's the beauty in privacy if you can't share it?

Yes! Tantrums! That is exactly what they are! Like a little girl vying for attention, saying things just to get her friends riled up. She LIVES for these posts and the adrenaline i'm sure they bring her when she hits 'post'. Incredibly immature in my eyes. 

 

Afterall, she is only in her mid-late 20's, has already been married and divorce then married again with 3 children. She hasn't really had the opportunity to be an immature YA, or really to form her own opinions on anything. Im positive all of her strong opinions are forced upon her by her 12+ yrs older husband and family. 

 

Sad really….
