Pass the popcorn...

For those of you that missed it, there was quite a bit of drama and craziness over at the The Rockabilly Socialite. Nicole made the rookie error of speaking her opinion and naming names regarding the whole pin up thing. For all those frothing at the mouth over this silly little rant that hardly seemed like a rant, take a gander and what another well known former pin up model has to say in this blog 

I like both these women. I agree with some of what they say. Would I ever post anything as boldly as they have? The answer is NO.

I have some opinions about people, places, genres and subcultures that I keep to myself. First, I don't like to slag people off. Second, I think it only makes me look bad to publicly be negative, even if that is what I'm thinking. Basically, it's bad manners and unladylike. It doesn't mean I won't make a catty remark to good friends, but that is because good friends often think alike. One other reason is because there are probably a lot of people out there who don't GET ME. Don't understand my love of vintage, rockabilly music, and mid-century decor. I know for a fact my 12 year old daughter thinks I'm a dork. Hey, she's entitled since she lives with me and the truth is I AM A BIG DORK.

Like in my blog about vintage style lovers who don't like the music, basically I don't understand them. Just like I don't really understand the pin up modeling thing. That is all I will say on the subject, since I don't want my blog to become a battleground like Nicole's has.

I was reminded today of this very wise quote:

That girl just sounds butthurt, is all.

Yes, it was a mistake to name the one name that I did. That company shall remain nameless for all time. ha ha. I dont feel that my post was that negative, or any worse then what you have said on your posts, but we live and learn. I just want to get this all behind us, and move on to the fun stuff again.

Just to be safe, maybe you should remove the retard thing. I know its a joke, but some people are really sensitive around here.

Keep up the good work, and I will work on keeping my big mouth shut. Its not the first time though, and I can not guarantee it will be the last. :)

Hey Tayva, you got balls and aren't afraid to speak your opinion, bless you for that!

Dollie, I'm gonna keep the retard comment up, even though it is an insult to retards that I compared those vicious anonymous comments on your blog to them.

Maybe my view is tainted since I've met you guys in person. Maybe it's because I've been misunderstood and flamed in the past. It seemed so crazy that the haters were crawling out of the woodwork over one person's personal experience.

I think this calls for another blog...to be continued.

It's so true! People on the internetz can be so mean. It's a big emotional risk to post ANYTHING on one's blog so we really need to be kind to each other. Flaming comments don't help anyone and flamers always sound stupid right or wrong. Life is too short to bicker in cyberspace.

If people knew what I really thought about things I wouldn't have any friends. Except E cuz he's just as bitchy as I am!! Maybe more! Haha!

Kim Bombshell said...

E? Bitchy? Never! hehe...

Welcome to DeluxeVille said...

hahaha....

Some girls from the "scene", make me laugh. Oh the drama!

*insert eye roll*

This is why I don't go to car shows anymore...catty, slutty girls, leaning over people's cars and putting it all out there for anyone who has a camera. Then they call themselves pinups because everyone knows that's what a pinup is?? I guess doing that makes them feel good about themselves???

Kinda sad really.

But to each their own!

1st off that is rude to state that end photo and 2nd your not that skinny yourself so I would remember that.

Kim Bombshell said...

Goody! Looks like my benign blog ruffled someone's thong.

Miss Tayva said...

What does "rockabilly" have to do with this? A dumb cunt is a dumb cunt no matter what scene they hang out in. Me, I don't subscribe to any scene.

It's ain't a contest, you knucklehead. I just enjoy calling out the assholes, is all. So suck a fat one, you anonymous dumb cunt.

Kim, that 'retard' pic always cracks me up. Oh, and thumbs up on the Little Willie John tunes on here! :-)

Kim Bombshell said...

Thanks Tayva. You've got guts to say some of the things you do and I'm glad someone is saying it. You've had success in that industry, coming from you it's a valid opinion. I am not, nor do I ever want to be a "pin up" so I can't comment publicly on the subject.
