Living In Glass Houses 

A few things were pointed out to me on my previous article. First is the fact that the Jero bashing on Reality Hot Spot goes against their one and only rule - no attacking members. Assuming of course Jero is still a member of the site.

I was also corrected that Two Faced Reality is really TwoFacesOfReality.com and was NOT a spinoff from the Fishbowl. Reality Hot Spot was run by Mia and Kat from the Fishbowl who recently had a falling out. Mia went back to Paul and the Fishbowl for support against Kat and "The Thugs" she had betrayed (more on The Thugs later). Kat opened up her own message board Kat's Reality Check.

And then I get this news from a member of The Fishbowl:

We opened The Fishbowl (TFB) in August of 2004. It was created with two purposes in mind. One, to allow fans to interact with reality stars and two, to try to help these reality stars to get a jumpstart on their careers. Both have been successful, as have we at TFB.

The DVD "Reality Unleashed" (created by TFB) had a release party...I believe is was September 2004. It was by invitation only. From what Wally has told me, Jerry got himself in using Wally. (According to Wally, Jerry was going to crash the party, but he convinced Jerry to pay for Scott Long to come out so that he could come to the party with Scott.

Around that time, Big Brother 5 had ended and TFB had Scott, Diane, Jase, Holly, Lori, and Marvin doing radio shows. Somehow Jerry got to be Diane's manager and webmaster until the whole fiasco started over there and Jerry was exorcized from the website.

Now, there were a group of regular night chatters in TFB chat room. They thought they owned the place and began making rude comments to other chatters. They're called "The Thugs" now. Some lewd remarks were apparently made (I was not witness to them), and since the chat room is open to 13 year olds and over, TFB felt that subject matter was inappropriate. Things got said, that were not very nice. They began boycotting TFB claiming that we were infringing on their right to free speech. They spewed venom both in our chatroom and in our forums. When they were banned from both, they went to AIM chat, Myspace, and then finally created their own forums. But having their own forums wasn't enough. They had to continue their rant on TwoFaced Reality, MySpace, RealityTVGossip, and Reality Hot Spot.

Now, you've seen most of what went on at RTVG. That wasn't the beginning though. It started with the posts being on TwoFacedReality and then was moved to RTVG and the other websites. You'll notice all the hateful topics at 2FR have been deleted.

What was very interesting, and you haven't pointed it out yet, was this...Diane Henry's webmaster Bikr, had a problem with his server and all his sites were down for awhile. Jerry made a post laughing at Bikr saying karma is a bitch (which, of course, was deleted from his website so Bikr wouldn't see it). After Diane's site went back up, he was one of the first to register and tell them how happy he was that the site was back up.

Of course, you know that 2FR was originally Scott Long's fan website. They parted ways this past summer. It's not for me to say what it was about, so you can draw your own conclusions.

So the "thugs" began attacking Paul at every opportunity on all these website. Not only did they attack his webmaster status, but also his physical appearance. Even Jerry had said as early as this spring that he thought the "thugs" were wrong to attack him that way. And then it wasn't long after that he was doing the same thing himself.

Just recently there was a rift in the "thug" gang. Mia and Kat, who is supposed to be the ringleader of the "thugs", apparently had a falling out. Kat went and started her own website, so now we have yet another site dedicated to slamming TFB and Paul in particular.

All our FB chat hosts have been attacked by them, with the exception of me. However, by writing this, I have thrown my hat into the ring.

So what of The Fishbowl? Well, we've been very busy! We produced and created the reality show "Kill Reality" this past summer, along with the movie "The Scorned", which will air on E! tonight. A few of our radio hosts have since gotten other projects and we couldn't be more happy for them! They deserved to be noticed and accepted for their acting abilities and not be considered D list celebrities just because they were on reality shows.

What of our radio shows? Well, we did move them all to a big 2 hour block on Fridays. Why? Because our shows were picked up on sattelite radio. So you see, we are far from dead and we have more projects in the works at this time that I'm not at liberty to discuss.

Anyway, you now know most of the story. This feud goes back a long way. TFB didn't start it, but I'll be damned if I'm going to sit back and say nothing anymore. Stay tuned, because everything Jerry has ever done is about to be printed. This isn't over. It has just begun.

**Added note: I've just learned Jerry has banned me from his website. No reason was given, but I speculate that Jerry went back on his word to me, knew our friendship would be over, and decided to break the ties before I did.

From The Fry Pan To The Fire 

Seems things are heating up for Jero - Reality Hot Spot has created their own thread for him at http://s14.invisionfree.com/RealityHotSpot/index.php?showtopic=76.

But this has really got me confused so any help from avid readers would be appreciated. From what I understand this whole thing comes from The Fishbowl, one of the hottest reality sites around last year, that had lots of reality "stars" showing up with radio shows and chats all the time. The place, run by someone named Paul (NOT our friend Paul Laughton aka BBVoyeur) was doing great until both fans and stars seemed to disappear. Whereas they used to have multiple broadcasts during the week, they are now down to one, and it doesn't seem like the stars post in the forums at all any more.

There were multiple spinoff sites from disatisfied fans, Reality Hot Spot, run by Mia, and Two Faces of Reality (or Two Faced Reality) run by Jero being two. As we have seen previously, Jero is a somewhat controversial figure, and this thread is "calling him out" - kind of like the shoot out at the OK corral in reality site land. So we have what looks like MonkeyKing and Jero on one side and Paul, Wally, and Tina on the other duking it out - until the inevitable thread locking.

Any way this all seems to have been triggered by some remarks made by His Dudeness over at, where else, Reality TV Gossip.

And since it seems like a lot of topics are getting locked, I have opened up the Reality Enquirer forums again at http://p071.ezboard.com/frealityenquirerfrm2.

Lock And Load 

Well this is the third thread in the past week that has been locked over at Howie's fansite. Seems a nice little battle is going on between MarryMeHowie and Reality Tv Gossip, with sporadic gunfire being heard.

And Empress at RTVG seems to have gone on a rampage as well - take a look at Guess The thread - pretty nasty stuff which brings out a lot of people from the woodwork and sets off a few little side skirmishes to boot.

All in all a nice little border war. Now where are those weapons of mass destruction?

With Friends Like These 

Some avid readers caught this exchange between Jokerette and Wildcard:

Jokerette (in a reply to a MEMORIAL to the victims of Hurricane Katrina):

YOU are a bad, bad girl.
10/19/05 04:50 PM

I just got off the phone with you. Wilma is headed right for you. Your parents are evacuating and you are threatening me with staying on the BEACH. OK, so I'm telling the whole world on you! So there! pbbbbbbbt


I'm not a bad girl. I posted a link to a memorial cause I'm so good and sad at what happened. As far as "threatening" I believe that was in reply to
10/19/05 05:23 PM

You telling me that Wilma headed this way was what I deserved for not coming to Nashville. So there. Gonna tell everyone on me, just make sure to tell it all


So not only is Jokerette wishing a hurricane on her bestest friend (when it suits her) Wildcard because she went to be with family instead of to Jokerette's house to be her own personal "refugee," she's treating her like a child now as well- "baaad girl." The last time I looked, JokersUpdates did have an age requirement, especially for the administration team. Not that Jokerette ever acts hers.

Here are the links to this discussion, but for some reason the Katrina Memorial has either been moved or disappeared. Wonder why?

In Memoriam - UncleKevin 

UnkleKevin, moderator on JokersUpdates, capper/op in #survivor-central on IRC, and a friend to many has passed on. He died yesterday after a battle with respiratory illness. He's already sadly missed - everyone who knew him is very sad
to see him go.

Howie Do They Do That? 

The Howie chat scandal just gets more involved.

Seems one of Howie's avid fans signed up at Reality TV Gossip to take a look at the Jero/Spamgirl controversy, and decided that it was a nasty piece of business disrespecting Howie, and said so at his site. This link will give you the whole sordid details if you can wade through it - howiegordon.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=431 (Caution: Rabid Fan may cause projectile vomiting). You may have to wait till Friday evening (October 21, 2005) to see it - looks like they are moving servers today. But in the link we get to see Howie shouting out the new rules for chats, and his displeasure at what happened with all the private messaging. We also get to see a really sweet example of how devoted some Howie fans can be - with guest appearances by Deb and Warpet. It is worth the wait to read this Tome To Howie, if it is still there.

Jero posted a response to the previous article - duplicated here without permission:

RE, I trust you are reading this at some point.

Here is my original post:

It pisses me off when there is a Scheduled Chat with someone (Reality Star) and people have to ruin it by sending Personal Messages to the guest of honor. It is RUDE and just WRONG and it is even worse when it is a site admin from another site. SHAME ON YOU! I think your punishment should be to sit on a hot "BBQ" for 10 minutes!
End Quote

I did not specifically call out Spamgirl, at least not on this site. I have no beef with her personally, I didn't even know she got involved in the DH.com scandal until reading your posts on your site. That one day that I did run amuck on DH.com, I only booted people from the chat room, and that was because I was attempting to keep those there from copying the chat log (which didn't work BTW) I never Banned anyone form the site, oh wait, yes I did. Maryhse I think it was. The day that I ran amuck was a day that I had decided to leave the site for good, I posted a goodbye message on the message board and in a moment of bad judgment, I let loose in the chat room as well. This is the only place that Spamgirl had any control. She never banned me but she may have been able to adjust the settings in mIrc to allow those I kicked to return. That feud is long over and done with. I harbor no ill feelings towards any member of that site, Spamgirl or the admin Bikr. He and I have been cordial to one another in the recent months. To this day, I remain very good friends with a handful that supported me on that site. I DID learn a lesson, don't mess with the majority.

I feel that some are bringing up the DH.com incident as a way to perhaps dig up some old hard feelings and get support against this recent rant of mine. I trust that those at DH.com who may catch wind of this sooner of later will question the intention of whoever brings it to their attention. Again, I have no hard feelings for Diane or her message board members. I am an active poster there and I support the site 100%.

If it has been just regular posting folk that were doing the Private Messaging, I would have never even brought it up. I just felt it was especially wrong for a few who really should have known better. It could have been Deb/Warpet/Morty/Paul/Bikr or any other message board admin. I felt it was disrespectful of Howie, Rachel, the chat members and the chat hosts. If anyone takes the time to read the transcripts, it was NOT acceptable behavior and they were asked to stop.

OK, I guess that is about it for my explanation.

Thanks for your time.


I have heard that things had gotten so heated between Bikr and Jero that it eventually wound up leading to a hate site being created in Jero's honor by Bikr, later removed when legal action was threatened - although Bikr claims he had more in store for Jero and that the legal action was not why it was taken down. It is good to know Jero and Bikr have made up now.

It was also pointed out to me that Spamgirl edited all of her posts on the topic at RTVG. And that Jero requested to be friends with Spamgirl on myspace.com under the Two Faced Reality moniker - till it was found out he owned the site.

And speaking of myspace, this little gem was sent me -
www.myspace.com/jokerette. Now is that a legit myspace entry, or is someone goofin on the owner of Jokers Updates?

Stay tuned.

(Update: No doubt the jokerette page is a fake - John Belushi would be proud. Kids can be so cruel.)

Just Diane To Tell You 

Well the recent fight at Reality TV Gossip between Jero and Spamgirl (and others) over the Howie chat seems to have a bit of history behind it.

But first a few facts. I was sent the chat part where all the private messaging started. From what I see the following people, in this order, were messaging Howie and he was answering in the chat (which I must agree is annoying) - Immy, Mandie (of the now infamous boobies at RTVG), Lisa, Darth, Phusion, Lola, Spam (girl), avy?, shelly, julie, and Franz - with some of them breaking in more than once.

So why did Jero specifically call out Spamgirl. And what does Diane-Henry.com, a site Phusion and Mandie bring up, have to do with all of this?

Seems like Jero had some control at that site last year and decided to run amok and began banning everyone in sight. Seems Spamgirl also had a bit of control, and when people started complaining, she banned Jero and unbanned everyone he had kicked off. I imagine Jero was not a happy camper, though there is an admission that a good lesson was learned.

But it looks like all is not forgotten, and Jero saw a chance to put a little stink on Spamgirl, and took it.

Stay tuned for more developments.

Chat Fight! 

Looks like a little cat fight over a recent chat has erupted over at Reality TV Gossip.

The argument stems from a Howie chat where Spamgirl of Reality BBQ (among others) is accused of private messaging the guest during the chat. According to Jero of Two Faced Reality this was bad etiquette. They, and the omnipresent Phusion, stir it up a little in the thread, and it gets a little personal.

Check out the argument at http://realitytvgossip.com/forum/index.php?topic=4499.0 and follow the links over to Two Faced Reality where another discussion on the same topic is going strong. Oh yeah - you probably have to be a member of the two sites to be able to read - so get out those fake email addresses.

Turn Out The Lights 

It is always so obvious when Big Brother is over. All the sites have that after-BB glow, which soon fades into the normal humdrum of ordinary reality television.

So the polls are closed, things here will be a lot quieter, and we wait another year for the fire to be rekindled.

This has been the slowest Big Brother yet for this site, though we did have some self-made excitement. We stay open year around, so if you have good scoop on the sites you visit, drop us a line.

The party's over.

Continuing Bruhaha About Kaysar and Jokers 

I got this in the mail which is interesting reading (Update: looks like the kaysarridha.com links aren't working - in fact the kaysarridha.com isn't up and running - try back later!):

Apparently there is a feud going on between two former posters and Jokers. Two longtime but not well liked posters left Jokers to move on to other boards to trash Jokers. Empress and Suebee use to be 2 well liked users but till the end they were the only 2 that liked each other. So, right before they got banned they left and went to Kaysar's board. There are a whole list of reasons that they are trashing Jokers, some are valid and some are borderline mental.

Here are some examples of the trashing - minor trashing -
http://www.kaysarridha.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=1266#pid17005 (towards the bottom of the thread)

A whole page of trashing from SueBitch .. er Bee and Empress -

Also there is the user Fuggybootling that was also banned (see the trend) that has been posting there. It appears that someone felt the need to post a link on Survivor Sucks. It had the start of a board to board war. If Marcellas would not have made the mistake of trashing fans (and that taking it's place for the drama of the moment) I think that it would still be going on.
We had done a previous piece on Empress last year at http://realityenquirer.blogspot.com/2004_10_01_realityenquirer_archive.html#109822224350284328 - still spooky.

It was interesting to see who showed up in these threads, especially the second. Some big hitters from past and present of Jokers Updates, including DressageRider and of all people, Numfar. Numfar was a moderator at Jokers, apparently ran off Stark (http://realityenquirer.blogspot.com/2003_06_01_realityenquirer_archive.html#105654487568142095), and then left Jokers in 2004.

We also found Empress at another site doling out juicy tidbits - take a look at http://www.realitytvgossip.com/viewtopic.php?t=4069&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 for a nice update.
