What? Months ago when we first learned about Kristen Stewart’s affair with Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, it was unclear how the franchise would proceed. Immediately after the scandal it was announced that Kristen would be dropped and Rupert would stay on as director. I felt that was extremely unfair, as was the media coverage that demonized Kristen Stewart and portrayed her as a floozy, while scarcely mentioning that Rupert was twice her age, in a position of power and married with kids. Although, I don’t think it’s correct of the franchise to punish either for personal indiscretions. Welp, now the tables have turned and Rupert has been dropped with Kristen reprising her role. The rumors are that Rupert wants nothing to do with the sequel because he is working on “repairing” his marriage. Aside from discussing how the media is notorious for being much more critical of young women, I care so little about Snow White & The Huntsman and Kristen Stewart’s one-note acting. So, whatever.
“Everyone else is so nice. I was just thinking back about some things and I was like, ‘I wonder if that was not so nice.’I don’t think I’m going to be able to watch it. I’m going to be so nervous. But I know people are going to love it. I think it’s a great dynamic.”
• Are Justin and Selena back together? Am I getting too old for this shit?
• Things are popping off on Rihanna’s 777 plane. There is a streaker. There is footage.
• Dating coach and former Playboy bunny wrote a response to my response of her post called “The Power of Beauty.” In my piece I accuse Serria of being somewhat shallow, and that her example of a guy who cheats on his girlfriend because she wasn’t “pretty enough” indicated that the guy was a douche bag not that the girl needed to change. Why date someone you’re not attracted to just to betray them? Serria responds with this:
“I actually think that the girlfriend was arrogent. To me she’s saying I’m going to date a guy that is way hotter than me and look like his limo driver and he will stay around because I’m just so damn smart. By the way, since the article was written they have broken up. I think anytime you rely on one trick to keep a mate you are being arrogent. If a woman thought she was just so hot that she could say whatever she wanted and treat her mate disrespectfully because she’s just so damn hot, he will leave her for a woman less hot and nicer. It happens all the time. Same with sex. You can’t rely on one trick to keep a person interested.”
Serria also goes onto pick apart my appearance, based on the Instagramed author photo I have at CC she assumes that I am single and sad. I need to smile more. Clearly with my author photo on a women’s website I was trying to convey major sex appeal and hoping to find a husband.
“Now let me talk about this article, of course I couldn’t read it without jumping down to a photo of the writer. She’s a cute brown girl with great skin and a sad face that would have been “fixed” with a smile. If I were giving her a makeover, that would have been the first thing I told her to do. Her eyes looked boring, no spark, or twinkle. She should work on that as well. She doesn’t look confident or happy in her photo, which is unfortunate and if she is sinlge, that “look” will keep her single.”
I don’t have any hard feelings toward Serria. I think it’s great that she is participating in this debate. I love when writing triggers discussion. I do find it a bit odd that she accused me of being a bully. I don’t see how a writer could publicly publish something on the Internet without the expectation of critique. See, that’s what I did, I wrote a critique, a response, which is not the same as bullying, if it was then wouldn’t her response just be bullying me? Just because someone disagrees with you and is outspoken about it doesn’t mean they’re trying to degrade or insult you – it’s simply the nature of being a human and existing in a world with different opinions. Nevertheless, for the most part, I think Serria handled her response with grace and articulated her point of view in a way that is valid and true to her – which is the most anyone can ask. Thanks, girl.
