That brings me to my sitdown (well, she stood the whole time so as not to soil her jeans) with Kay Foxx. She was upset that Vivian wrote a blog about her sleeping with Maino and said I fueled her. I simply feel that it was a rumor she heard, she reported it, you refuted it, now let it go. I’m sure Kay reports rumors every morning about people that she has met in real life, and every now and then the subjects deny the validity of them. I don’t think that means they should call her a peon and not acknowledge her existence anymore. I report on people I interact with frequently, and as professionals in this industry they’re aware of how things work. But Kay Foxx stood up and told me I need to learn to rise to her level and I should know about being a woman in this industry et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
As a woman in this industry, I’ve never called anyone else a bitch or called them out of their name. You won’t hear me call anyone a wildebeest as she did, or make fun of anyone’s physical attributes. Don’t expect to talk sh*t about everyone else (calling me fake, Sharon conceited, and Vivian a bitch) and then boo-hoo that people need to keep your name out of their mouths. If you can dish it, be ready to take it.
To wrap this up, the first season of The Gossip Game was an interesting journey to say the least. There were a lot of scenes left on the cutting floor for all of us that we wish you could have seen. There were people who “turn up” for the cameras and then have twitter rants or breakdowns behind the scenes on how they are portrayed. Own whatever it is that you put out there. You did it, and once you did it on camera there’s no reneging. And thank you VH1 for all the free drinks when I had to wait hours to shoot a scene. I see what you did there!
