Natalie Hill, the “Broadway star” behind the yawn farm Mormon In Manhattan, is no longer in Manhattan. She has moved to Utah – though like Jessica Quirk all those years ago, she is claiming she will keep a pied-à-terre in NYC – and in a few weeks she will be marrying that guy she met 6 months ago.
Yes kids, after 10 years of husband hunting ole Natalie has finally bagged herself a man. She has spent the last few months bragging about moving to some swanky part of Salt Lake City and having multiple engagement and bridal showers and filling up her registry.
Of course nothing is real until a blogger makes their new life official on the internet with a rebrand.
Mormon in Manhattan is becoming “Natalie Now“. Sure to be as fascinating as every other Mormon housewife blog, it is currently under “Rennovation”. So save the day, folks!
What’s that? You don’t care? Hey, slow news day, sorry.
Aunt Becky, was going to try and do some kind of play on “Aunt Trainwrecky” here but can’t seem to make it work, was back in court today to deal with the charges claiming she filed false reports. After being charged with two felony counts, she continued to claim she was in physical danger as her fans poured money into a “protection fund”.
But it seems all that happened at court today was a “Pretrial Diversion Application“, with a new date set for October 15th.
In the majority of cases, offenders are diverted at the pre-charge stage. Participants who successfully complete the program will not be charged or, if charged, will have the charges against them dismissed; unsuccessful participants are returned for prosecution.
So basically it sounds like nothing is going to come of this. Womp.
Jenna, “solo parent working mom entrepreneur”, has posted a delightful story about her baby daughter.
It seems little Princess got into some hair wax and had covered herself and her stuffed lion in the stuff. Rather than plop her into her weekly bath, she took the wax covered child into the backyard for a full on photo shoot. She then good- naturedly made a joke about it being time to baby proof her house. This would have gotten a knowing laugh from most mothers if not for the fact that this exact scenario has already been documented by Jenna over a month ago, so it’s not as if she didn’t already know she needed to hide the hair product.
Thankfully T2 is now going back to daycare and Jenna has found even more ways to outsource her life so she can “work” on all her “work” and “businesses”.
One of the ways I’m managing all of this is by outsourcing. I hired my first virtual assistant via odesk.com to work on basic tasks so I have more time for coordinating with advertisers and generating content. I finally have a dependable editor putting together Pinterest Fail posts for me…After several months of trying to squeeze everything in during nap time I found AM daycare for T2 that will allow me to consistently log about 25 hours of work per week.
Saying she hopes this new daycare will “allow me to relax in the evenings”, she goes on to yet again justify all this outsourcing by saying:
I’ve heard lots of successful bloggers talk about how they put in a good 1-3 years of losing sleep to build up their brand, but I don’t think I’m interested in living that way.
With her “never-ending” to-do list Jenna thinks “the key to success here is going to be laying outfits out the night before and eating breakfast in the car”, meaning, I assume, that the children will now be eating all family meals in car seats since she already told the world they also eat their dinner in the car on the way home from daycare.
Oh the crazy life of a #WAHM! I do hope offloading even more of her responsibilities helps her get it all done!
Somewhat old news, but in case you haven’t seen it yet there is a wonderfully uplifting tumblr called “Women Against Feminism“. It’s full of empowering anti-feminist sentiments such as “I don’t need feminism…because it causes misandry” and “I need feminism because I’m a lesbian so men disgust me”. And the ever supportive signs proclaiming feminism the exclusive domain of dumb whores.
It’s mostly a bunch of the same party lines you’ll hear on any MRA website, just pushed by vaginal citizens instead of angry dudes with nice guy syndrome roid rage. Enjoy!
Mandy, attended Northwestern, recently wrote a rambling blather of a post about waking up her old writing teacher in the middle of the night. You see, James Foley attended Northwestern. Mandy also attended Northwestern, where she took writing classes from a professor at Northwestern.
Anyway, the post is basically Mandy trying in some ham fisted way to make the murder of a journalist in Iraq all about Mandy, and that it hit her harder than anyone else…because James Foley attended Northwestern, and so did Mandy, and Mandy is also a “journalist”. Or something. If you’re confused, don’t worry – so was pretty much anyone else who read her post. When people started commenting with critical feedback, Mandy did what any professional journalist would do – went on a buhlete spree.
Over 100 comments were removed, and when commenters complained, Mandy used her Northwestern journalistic training to solve that problem as well.
After commenters began emailing xoJane staff asking WTF was going on, Mandy apparently had a change of heart. Deleted comments are reappearing, and Mandy says it all happened because she had a bad day.
Such journalist! So in the same peer group as James Foley. She then went on to claim all accounts have been unbanned, though many users are disputing this.
