While in my GDLA Blogs I was quite critical of Jillian Reynolds performance and erhhhm, Dorothy Luuuuuucey’s, that was basically addressing a product that were both defective and I did so as a customer. Much worse was posted online elsewhere by an unrelenting public. That said, please let me explain my criticisms.
Celebrities are a product. Yes personally they are people too, have feelings and many are hurt by the negativity, some may even contemplate suicide. This is just a sad fact. But celebrities are living on a much higher order than the average citizen of a country and thus are also held to a different standard in just about everything they do or lack thereof.
Celebrities are also a commercial marketing product and this is where my criticisms came in. Jillian Barberie for all intents and purposes in front of the camera is a product. Thus as a viewer, I am a customer. If I am being given a defective product, as a customer I have every right to complain or comment. I will cite an example.
Let’s say Jillian buys a new pair of shoes and the heel fell off, causing a nail to drive into the bottom of her foot, you know the nails, they sometimes use to pound a custom heel onto the bottom sole of the shoe. She as a customer would have every right to complain about the product.
Likewise if a celebrity performer is performing wrong, then as a customer a viewer has the right to complain. It’s nothing really personal especially since in my case I have never met Jillian, though I used to pass close by on Wells Drive in Tarzana on my errands for a friend living in Tarzana Hills. That said, I am sure she is the very quiet, sweet, nice mom taking care of her family she has been said to be. Completely wild on the media (many usually are), but also very opposite at the home life (as it has been rumored online) and I can jive with that, honestly. Raising a family and doing what she has, leaves very little for one to slow down and make the most out of life. And let me tell all of you, as you grow older, life moves much faster. You hear this all the time. Trust me, it’s real.
I cannot imagine the panic, fear and depression that she must have been experiencing, or experienced; as Breast Cancer is a horrible disease and like any life-threatening illness, nobody and I mean nobody should suffer it.
So now that I have had a chance to explain things better, here is what I want to say to Mrs. Jillian Barberie – personally. Besides my prayer for her to get well, I honestly think she will bounce back and be a bigger and better celebrity and especially mom and stronger person for it. God Bless her comeback and well being. May she find the right venue to go completely wild in the media once more.
