Mob Wives: Unfollowing Chirping Bloggers!
An Unfollow Twitter Party
Remember when Christina threw a hissy fit because Nora and Pia “unfriended” her on Facebook? Leah’s advice was to throw a party. I might be throwing a party too.
Last season of the original Mob Wives, Drita and Carla both unfollowed and blocked me on Twitter. Boo Hoo. They didn’t like something on the blog and decided to teach me a lesson. Now, I haven’t seen their tweets for months, unless I want to. There are ways to circumvent their “block.” Mainly, I don’t bother much with their appearances and projects because I refuse to chase them around to find out what they are up to. It’s their loss because I used to do many blogs promoting their events for their fans. If I write negative blogs, they should suck it up because even negative publicity is good publicity. I guess no one told them that yet.
Fast Forward to Mob Wives Chicago season one. As bloggers, we often start out on a good note with the cast because they are new and we know nothing about them. Then, after watching several episodes, we get a feel for who they are and what they seem to stand for. We write about what we see and our opinions regarding their behavior on the show. What do I get for my hard work? I get unfollowed. I recently saw that Christina, Nora, Renee and Giana have all intentionally unfollowed me on twitter or it’s a coincidental glitch? Who knows who else has also “UN”-followed suit? And, may I add, who cares? If they don’t like what I have to say about their behavior each week, so be it. I can’t help it if Christina is very inconsistent when it come to her love/hate relationship with Nora. I don’t like flip-floppers. That’s how it comes across, whether it’s editing or for real, I don’t know. I also will not apologize for saying Nora hits way below the belt in her comments to Renee and Pia. She said some unforgivable things and I have yet to hear a sincere apology from her. You don’t say things like that to strangers, let alone long time friends. And as for Renee, is it my fault if she has a bone to pick with everyone? Maybe she is high strung, has serious trust issues or just hamming it up for the camera? That’s not for me to figure out. All I know is that sometimes she has legitimate grounds for getting upset and other times she picks a fight for no reason. If she doesn’t like my assessment of her behavior, it’s her prerogative. Giana…well I don’t know what her issue is with me, I have been nice enough to her.
The question is who are these mob wives spiting? Not me. I will continue to write and chirp as I see fit. If I can’t see their tweets about projects and interviews and appearances, then I will not be blogging about them. I will focus on the mob wives who do follow me and publicize their work. The fact is that I always support the shows, I support Jennifer Graziano 100% and help keep fans interested in what mob wives are doing on and off the show. I believe most fans do not want to read cheerleaders rooting for everyone especially when they are in the wrong. I write it as I see it, and always will.
There is more than enough for me to blog about. New shows are starting up this fall, like Mob Doctor and Red Widow. I know Jennifer Graizano never sleeps, and her mind is always cooking up more shows too. And you know what? Sometimes I just need a day off from the blogosphere.
So best of luck to all you “unfollowers,” and I do mean that with all sincerity. I won’t be shedding any tears any time soon. In fact, I will take Leah’s advice and throw myself an unfollow Twitter party!
