Mind Blown

sometimes in life, people just blow your mind.  and i'm a gomi regular, i adore it, so very little shocks me any more.  i'm sure you all know what i'm taking about but if you don't feel free to take a refresher here.  don't say i didn't warn you.  but, the entertainment value is through the roof, so enjoy.

tldr? (too long didn't read, in gomi speak) - the 'author' (are you still the author if you stole all your content?) of the blog put herself on gomi, made sock puppet accounts to defend herself, got caught by the site administrator, which then led everyone to mistrust everything about her.  they found that all her photos and recipes were stolen from other bloggers and she watermarked them as her own.  the owner asked her to take them down.  halfway to cray, as she's now been nicknamed, then deleted everything - blog, social media, personal facebook.  and eventually came back on to gomi, pretended to be her husband, and claimed that she died in a car crash that afternoon.

the moral of the story is, don't steal and lie all the live long day.  and definitely don't fake your own death when you get caught.  who fakes their own death??

the point of this post - i'm offering free ad space to anyone who was swindled by bev.  just let me know you were one of those people and i'll e-mail you the promo code.  because we're not all crazy and mean on the internets.

but just... whoa.

    1. i agree 100%. i just feel kind of bad for her.. clearly, she needs help, or attention, or something and she isn't getting what she needs. but to go about it this way? just....no.

  12. i could barely sleep last night because it was so mind blowing that it stayed on my mind! i kept waking up and the whole situation kept creeping into my dreams.

    ...when will the ghost of Bev make a return? who will she be next?

  13. You just introduced me to the time suck known as GOMI. I immediately knew who you were talking about because of seeing her name around blog world... she just had a guest post on The Daily Tay recently if I remember correctly... anyway wow. That girl got called out. I can't believe she was such a shady blogger in the first place. How immature!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I blame being busy in real life for missing these shenanigans so I am just now catching up. Who does this? I am only on page four of the threads and skimming hardcore but whoa... Thank you, gods o' crazy, for the Friday entertainment I have just received.

    1. Just kidding. I found her blog a few days ago from her guest post. I had NO idea she was this person!

  18. I don't usually stalk gomi...and I haven't seen anyone else talking about this...so I am a little lost on what all is going on. What I have to say is WTF?! Who does this?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't read GOMI but every time someone does a post on it I always pop over. OMG...this is just crazy. Like so crazy! That is so kind of you to offer this to people who were duped by her! People are sick and sad. Was she a popular blogger?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lmfao that's a crazy bish for real - someone needs to have her committed. That's insane - who does that? You have to seriously have some psychotic tendencies to reach that sort of rock bottom. Happy Friday Stephanie and have a great weekend! -Iva

  30. i was alerted to this mess via twitter last night, and then of course, got sucked into the whole gomi thread for it.. and just. holy bananas, penelope. i am really torn between rolling my eyes in her general direction because, crazy, and feeling really bad/sad for her because, crazy. i keep trying to remember that i don't know her life, and maybe some of the stuff she said is true, but once the site admin came on to specifically prove some of the rumors about the same IP address and all that, and then all of a sudden her story changed, and then BAM she's dead, I was like uhhh......okay that is just sociopathic. (is that even a word?) either way.....homegirl is troubled, for real.

  31. I saw your tweets last night and got completely sucked in to all that drama. My mind is still blown by all that craziness. I called she was a fake who was interested in the money and "omg blog fame" back when she sponsored me months ago. But I had no idea she would go fake your own death crazy. Someone people just can't handle their internet...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whoa, that is some seriously messed up stuff! I've seen her blog before and even did a giveaway that she organized. I didn't see that coming :\

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wish I could say this surprised me, but it didn't. There was always something about her that made me go :/. That's really awesome of you to offer ad space for those that were screwed over by Bev though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I was working with her on doing like promo spots for one another, guest posts and ad spaces (all free thank goodness), but man, that's just so crazy.....

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have seen plenty of crazy things, especially on GOMI, but that tops it all. It just kept snowballing.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fill me in I thought I was following her blog, what happened?!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beyond crazy!! I met her through a blog group and participated in one of her paypal giveaways. I hope someone actually got that cash!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's really cool of you to offer her sponsors space. And yeah, I've watched the whole thing play out from the beginning, and it has been entertaining to say the least! I am so, so dying to see how she "resurrects" herself. I'll have popcorn ready when she does.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What the hell.

    Horribly enough, I've heard of people faking their own death on livejournal before, so it's not even completely new to me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is just crazy. I was reading that whole thread knowing she created multiple accounts. I feel this girl needs help, especially due to faking her death I mean that's extreme. It's nice to offer ad space. I can't imagine how many she swindled!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What in the whole wide world????

    People are crazy. Thanks for being one of the good ones.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What. The. F. Who has time for that? Who thinks of that?!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow that is just crazy! Takes high school drama to a whole new level!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wait, this is a true story?!? That is beyond crazy - so much that I feel sorry for her as a person. She obviously needs to seek professional help.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, that's so insane... and awesome. Hahaha. Have you read about the drama between bloggers Extra Petite and Really Petite? It's not as intense, but still entertaining. The latter has a single white female situation going on with the former, stalking her eBay account to buy exact same clothes and then just tons of lying... the lie/copy cycle on repeat. Here's a tidbit if you're interested, hah: http://getoffmyinternets.net/stylish-petite-will-post-outfit-fiction/

  46. I don't know of Bev (I don't think?), but reporting in as someone else about your fake death is so soap opera it's insane.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I never read or even heard of her blog. I feel like I missed out on a really good laugh.

  48. I've been slowly reading the thread since Saturday and I just have no words. She was part of a FB group that I am in and that's how I found out about it....honestly, I don't think I can hack it with GOMI, it gets a little too biting for me, but this train wreck has been like a bad Bravo show....

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've been reading the GOMI thread all weekend, completely entertained. I had just "met" her on a blogging network and she was going to do some promotion for me. Sort of glad she didn't end up doing it

    ReplyDelete
  50. This thread has seriously been my total source of entertainment at work for the past too many hours to admit. I think Amy is Bev... If I were a betting man....

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have been reading through the thread thanks to this post and I am blown away. I saw her blog about 3 weeks ago (she commented on one of my posts) and when I tried to go back on last Friday, it was down. I was curious to what happened and then saw this. I am blown away by her craziness. I seriously need some popcorn and wine to get through the next 40 or so pages. Thanks for sharing this and so glad I never got sucked into her craziness.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow this is a lot to take in at once! I'm just hearing about this now.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh my goodness. Wow. Some people, right? That is so far passed the line it is not even funny.

    p.s. GOMI is just so much fun to read. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Omg. My brain is shot from reading (trying to read?) that thread but I saw your name and recognized it from comments on other blogs and now I'm here! So, bonus, new followers for you?

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is just fucking BIZARRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who has the time/inclination to do shit like this?! #crazypills

    ReplyDelete
  56. I've been reading that thread for about an hour now alternating between laughing so hard I am crying and sitting there with my jaw on the floor. That is really nice of you to offer free ad space to those who have been swindled! Not to mention it is nice of Natalie too! Let's hope that Beverly gal gets some good meds soon.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I, too, did a lot of after school activities. And it taught me that playing sports makes you skinny and I should probably be doing that again...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well, the upside of her cray is now I know about your blog! thanks GOMI!

  59. OMG. Dying. I didn't know people actually thought to do things like this! I won't ever go on that site but can you tell me who it was???

    ReplyDelete
  60. OMG. If fake death is the only logical solution, you have bigger problems.

    ReplyDelete
  61. yea, I read it this weekend and it sounded like half the people I was in the hospital with. Like, no joke, she obviously needs serious help. My husband kept yelling at me to pay attention to him and I just couldn't stop reading it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I read this person for a short while, found her annoying and stopped. I had no idea about all of this until just recently. CRAY CRAY!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I just found out about this, and I honestly can't wrap my head around it! I used to read her blog (but eventually found that she was a little annoying, especially on Twitter, so I stopped following. I mean really, the "BooBear" and "Boogie" was too weird), and I'm pretty sure she and I swapped ads at one point. Just like - why do this? Did she really think she wouldn't get caught at some point, especially making giveaways and never sending anyone the prize?

    1. I can't understand it at all. I don't think a normal person would do those things, especially thinking they'll never get caught. That's just not how people think. And really, what was the point of it all? I still don't know....

      Delete
  64. How did I not know about this?! I miss all the good juicy stuff, ugh I hate being sick. I so needed this entertainment, thank you.
