Gone Girl IRL, Tinder Swindler got scammed, the Kardashians continue to be the worst 👀🍿🧃
And the bees never win, do they?
I hope this newsletter finds you watching The Dropout (another perfect portrayal of a grifter with a… unique… voice) or Joe vs. Carole. Here’s the roundup for this week:
“Tinder Swindler’ Simon Leviev Turnabout's Not Fair Play!!! I just got swindled!!!”- Ahh karma. Sort of surprising that someone so well-versed at scamming didn’t see this one coming. Blue check mark aside, he’s certainly a verified bad person!
“California mom Sherri Papini arrested for FAKING 2016 kidnapping by 'two Hispanic women' when she was actually with an ex-boyfriend: Lover identified after his FATHER's DNA matched samples taken from her clothes six years ago”- This real-life Gone Girl woman sounds insufferable, especially having blamed two fictional Hispanic women for kidnapping her, playing “really annoying Mexican music” and feeding her “rice or tortillas.” Per the article photos, she also wore Ugg boots as part of a cowgirl costume, so this woman is committing crimes of all kinds.
“Arrest of longtime Canadian fugitive stuns Puerto Rico”- The headline does NOT do this ready-for-a-Netflix-series story justice. This fugitive murderer was found hiding in plain sight amongst the Puerto Rico social scene, saving the bees (but actually?) and doing a ton of charitable work.
“Married father-of-three Republican Rep. Van Taylor drops bid for reelection after admitting to nine-month affair with ex-JIHADI who went to Syria and married an ISIS commander”- I feel badly for both women in this situation and am cranky that guys like this have built a career being so vocal about conservative, wholesome family values.
“Here’s The Full Story Behind Those Bizarre Designer Giveaways The Kardashians Keep Doing On Instagram After A Viral TikTok Finally Exposed The Truth”- Even as someone who works in marketing, I found the breakdown of these promotional posts staggeringly gross.
“Taylor Lorenz Introduces Her Brand to the Washington Post” - The media world can be so petty and catty, just like high school!
Did we mention that March is FULL of upcoming scam-inspired documentaries and series? Obviously! Here’s a list of everything worth watching, with several having just premiered!
Weekly Proof That Truth Will Always Be More Scandalous Than Fiction
"NEED SPACE? I see aliens EVERY DAY after spotting my first UFO during lockdown – this is what they look like, woman claims"- I can only imagine that if this had been a neighbor of mine, I’d have to explain what she saw was probably just me taking a late-night stroll in one of my mid-pandemic-lockdown costume purchases.
