Stephanie Klein redux –

Ξ August 29th, 2005 | → 2 Comments | ∇ Whatever |

A few weeks ago, I wrote a bit of commentary about Stephanie Klein and her blog. At the time I posted it, I thought to myself that maybe I went a bit over the edge as I really didn’t know this woman from Adam’s off ox… so why was I roasting her?

I decided that my opinions are no better or worse that any elses, so I let fly.

Well the letters and comments started almost immediately. A few days later, I posted some stats showing that I was behind in the polling. The Steph fans were outnumbering the ummm… non-fans.

How that has changed! After the initial flurry, the tide has shifted. I received a ton of email telling me how bright and insightful I am and how I was exactly right in my commentary!

Christopher London writes, “I have spent the better part of a year getting to know Stephanie Klein personally and have found your assessment particularly accurate. I have linked your quotation in my blog about her.” Kinda neat to be backed up by someone who actually knows her! I also wish I could write like he does. There are so many great writers online, and so MANY are better than the pros! Onward…

Another person writes, “I agree with everything you said about Stephanie Klein and her blog and I am a woman. So, I guess I’ll be one of the rare ones. I’m also stupefied as to why so many people (women in particular) are so drawn to her writing. It’s not horrible, but it’s just not believable. There is no sincerity in her writing and like Chris London said, it’s hard to find a reason to like her. And do you think “Illuminated” could have sounded a little less like they were in 8th grade by calling you a “dick”? Please. People just don’t like the truth and you nailed it.”

Nice! Yes “Illuminated” did play the “D” card, but two people wrote to say that Illuminated is likely her current flame… (the well hung and equally superficial) Phil… sans her writing skills!

Now one the other hand… how cool that he springing to her defense! Probably got lucky because of his comment!

This is This is SO like a soaper, right?

As for being drawn to her writing, she does have skills, so if you can get past the superficial, location dropping, and generally shallow thought processes, she is a good read. Also, those people who follow here every word probably don’t have a life anyway… living vicariously through the Stephster! Of course maybe the whole blog is fiction! Sort of like making a public submission to get a book deal! Wonder if that would work?

A bunch of other people also wrote. One (rather bitchy”) comment from BT said, “Well I DO know her and I have for several years. To my amazement, I truly believe she has no idea what we say (about her) behind her back!”.

Oh yeah… I bet I do!

Anyway… the tides have changed, and now the anti-Steph comments and email are running about 5 to 1 over the Steph defenders. I feel vindicated!

    Some people like her writing, others do not. Truth is she touches a lot of people very deeply for one reason or another. Truth is people always knock or judge people when they get popular. Truth is Chris London is a stalker devoting his life to posting comments on every site he can as well as his own daily. You sound like someone who can see an agenda rather than opinion. And at the end of the day, who cares. Like her or not. Some people like Madonna, others think she’s a product. Chris London will undertake that cause next right after he finishes interviewing Mark David Chapman on stalking tips.

    When Stephanie Klein is not talking about her hair, fancy food, fabulous body and hired help, I don’t mind listening to what she has to say. Unfortunately those posts are few and far between, aren’t they?
