Mormon mom swingers, goodbye girlboss & the OG Anna Delvey 👀🍿🧃
And Kardashians take a field trip to the grocery store
Hello Wrecklings! Writing this week’s newsletter, I felt I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that while our country moves forward to ban books, reproductive healthcare, and the word “gay”, there’s also somehow zero move towards gun control. Let’s change that, shall we?
So with a lack of a better transition… here are this week’s stories:
“Artist claims she hasn’t been paid for staging Anna Delvey’s art show”- It’s one thing to want to see the best in people… and then there’s just being dumb. Anna was just a guest on Paris Hilton’s podcast- I give huge props to Paris and Nicky Hilton for refusing to glorify Anna’s shenanigans— resulting in an uncomfortably terse interview— complete with snickering.
“Mona Lisa attacked with cake by man wearing disguise to look like an old woman”- This is why we can’t have nice things. Can’t say I understand how this act was a successful climate protest but you know what they say about there being no such thing as bad press.
“My husband and I spent $5,200 for 2 nights on Disney's Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, and it was totally worth it”- I’m not one to yuck someone’s yum but it makes me sad when people are price-gouged for said yums— which in this case included… shrimp dyed with blue food coloring.
“Australian Dogecoin creator Jackson Palmer on grifts, Elon Musk, crypto bubbles and Pauline Hanson”- This small outlet is making a big splash with this published interview as Palmer accuses Elon of having had little experience with coding, being a grifter, and generally never having had an intention of buying Twitter. Elon has since responded.
“The Sunsetting of the Girlboss Is Nearly Complete”- It’s a shame when so many women-led companies end in profiles calling out their toxic work cultures. Or, perhaps an unpopular opinion, they’re just thrust under the spotlight more frequently than their male counterparts, for some reason?
A Twitter thread on how to spot an MLM-front in your town- My town has one of these and it’s caused some drama on the local community Facebook groups.
“Kylie Jenner And Kris Jenner Are Being Dragged For Their "Out Of Touch" And “Gross” Reaction To Going To A Grocery Store”- The weirdest part of this article is Kris Jenner’s hyping up one of her daughters returning a shopping cart with, “Go, Kylie, go! Kylie, you’re doing amazing, sweetie — wow, look at her go! Great job!” Ok, next let’s see them pay rent and expenses while working minimum-wage jobs.
“The Second Coming of the Hipster Grifter In 2009, Kari Ferrell made headlines for duping men in Williamsburg. Now she’s ready to reenter the spotlight.”- Hold up! Is this like the OG Anna Delvey? I’m upset I’d never heard of Kari’s story until now but dang, she was ruthless. Glad to see her having since become a less terrible person.
“J*ffree St*r called his yaks 'majestic creatures' after trademarking Star Yak Ranch butchering"- I don’t see a bright future for these yaks... This follows J*ffree’s (no free SEO for garbage people) bizarre partnership with Beretta where he unveils a very pink, bedazzled gun that’d been custom-made for him.
“Klarna used a prerecorded video message to lay off 10 percent of employees”- This feels very Black Mirror, and I hate it. Do better, corporate HR.
Speaking of which, this LinkedIn post reveals the difficult work environment at TikTok- I commend this bold move and hope she lands somewhere with better leadership. The second part of her post is here.
“A Big Weekend For The Swinging Mormon Moms Of TikTok”- If y’all haven’t been following this drama as it’s unfolded, it is truly fascinating. 👀🍿🧃.
“Florida Influencer Charged With Fraud for Stealing Massachusetts Resident’s Identity to Apply for $100K COVID Loan”- Move over Nigerian Princes, millennials are the new grifter poster child.
“How Influencers Hype Crypto, Without Disclosing Their Financial Ties”- There appears to be a major thread amongst stories like these— do not. ever, ever, take investment advice (or any kind of advice, probably) from Logan Paul.
