New vid on ladylike with Freddie and Devin making Holiday cocktails. Yawn. Again Devin's really over the top dramatic persona she has put on lately just makes me feel uncomfortable, because it's like she's hiding something or over compensating?

Her and Kristin together in the Empty Suitcase Show was really rough, since they were both being soooo OTT.

I for one certainly like the dynamic between Jenn and Kristen more. Can’t wait for the later episodes when it’s just them two

Chantel's new channel: 4 days up and her videos on her channel have 66k views (the channel intro, 4 days ago), 23k views (the poetic video, 4 days ago), and 3.7k views (13 hours ago). First of all, 4 days and not even broken 100k? That doesn't seem like this'll bode well...

I think that honestly one of the biggest mistakes someone who is starting a new channel makes is that they start a channel with no content. I think if she had announced her channel, had 3 videos up at least (one channel intro, the poetic thing is fine, one gaming content since that's what she wants to do), and uploaded another video per day for at least a week, she could build a following and get people excited about her channel. Basically her channel already looked dead on arrival... then went silent for almost 4 days. Not a good start.
That is one thing Saf did well - she’d uploaded 4-5 videos in the month before leaving buzzfeed and announcing her solo project. So when she left she got the big views of her “leaving BF” video but there was already a supportive foundation of content for viewers who arrived on the page. Gave a sense of what the channel was going to be too.

I don't follow Freddie on Twitter, but she showed up in a sponsored post today advertising Samsung TVs and Michael Bay's terrible new movie. Two for one! She even tags Netflix twice!

Image

I know brand deals are just part of the influencer package anymore, but this one seems so hilariously cynical — what the hell do Michael Bay or Samsung have to do with Freddie's brand? What's the overlap between people watching Beauty Roulette and people who want hoo-rah America action porn?

imo Freddie, Chantel and Devin all feel like they deserve more clout than they're managed to accrue over the years, so they're trying to just act out Influencer Things and expecting commensurate rewards to roll in. It's like, "How can I not be successful? I've been on Buzzfeed for four years!" Nevermind that they've been making the most godawful content and using the channel as a way to pay for clothes/redecorating/photoshoots since Saf left.

Yeah what I don’t understand about Chantel and Ashly is why don’t they ever post about each other or show pictures of each other. It’s very odd, they pretty much hide the other person even though they are clearly going on vacations or whatever. Also, all they do is post photos of themselves, it’s so conceited.

The Ladylike crew consistently has the worst individual sponsored content. Like they just accept anything they can get and then they don't even try to make it their own, it just sounds like they copy and pasted the original copy the brand sent over instead of making it their own. It's so disengenuous. I'm not even against brand work but shit at least try

Freddie sold out long ago. If I remember correctly, she was relatively liked amongst most viewers but she clearly does not have humility in her "work" at Buzzfeed or as an influencer anymore. It's one thing to enjoy the perks of the job, and another to blatantly use that to your benefit only. The shitty part comes in that it's like Freddie thinks she's actually personable and fooling her audience when anyone with more than 3 braincells can see what's going on.

I can't say I wouldn't say no to some of the opportunities she's been given, but at this point it's tasteless. She already got BF to pay for her new house makeovers, but all she had to do was make one Twitter post saying she's taken a sponsorship to getting a ~home theatre~ and "highly enjoys it" like her followers are definitely going to go out and get that for themselves because she can't say no to expensive material goods that come free and serve her. :roll:

Disclaimer: I'm not a mom and I'm not planning to be, so there's a lot I don't understand about parenting, but I hate when people are trying to be all cutesy and say stuff like "thanks for picking us to be your family". Yeah that's how it works, unlucky for the kids who picked the shitty families I guess 🙄

I love the name Henry.

Kind of annoyed because it means it must be getting trendy - Hannah's baby names are all kinda "hot names of the moment" choices. Jackson. Wyatt.

The only thing I like so far is that they are going to more thrift/reclaimed/second hand stores.

But nothing about this show is hard or a unique concept. It feels like they're trying to test Kristin out on an audience to see if she can carry her own show and/or channel.

I agree. I also meant to say her dress sense is horrendous and the final looks in these episodes have mostly been cringe. I get she's trying to push herself out of her comfort zone - but man that denim skirt was sooo dated like early 2000's chic and the button up shirt with it was like something from heehaw. I was half waiting for them to shove a cowboy hat and cowboy boots with it. The skirt into a dress ended up not being too bad. But I don't see why she needs a tonne of accessories from nordstrom and target etc to finish each look.

Late answer here, but... I personally don't blame them?

A few years back when Buzzfeed still did those little sketches and things with Ashly, I remember the "Ashdrew" shippers were rampant to the point where I think both Ashly and Andrew got really uncomfortable (especially as I think... Andrew might have had a girlfriend at the time? though don't quote me on that - it's been years). Literally every video/appearance would be a flood of those comments. Obviously that's died down now, but I wouldn't be surprised if that messed up their friendship, and Ashly doesn't want to air her stuff openly any more, even if it is an ACTUAL relationship this time.

Hell, even if she hadn't been through that: look at Aria and Merle right now, and the way Buzzfeed are like parading them around and milking what was initially a very sweet, and genuine-seeming relationship. Or even just in that new bubble waffle video with Alvin and Inga - people started "shipping" them and being weird in the comments, over nothing. Like I just can't blame them at all for not wanting to be open about it. It'd quickly turn into a circus and it isn't worth it at all lmao.

I surprisingly enjoyed the video, too. Wasn't expecting much since it is BF after all. Though they're both good, the one Santa was really, idk, well-rounded (no pun intended lol) and personable in his responses.

BUT what wasn't surprising was his quip at the end about him noticing the crew constantly checking their watches as he was reflecting on memories pertaining to the questions asked, and so tried to be courteous and wrap things up quickly for them. :| Does anyone there have decency? What's the point of making a lighthearted video in the "spirit of the season" when you're not even thankful to the people contributing to your content, much less someone who was being very jovial the entire time? smh

Yeah that was really sad! If I were the crew I'd be delighted to hear his stories, and spend some time with him, he seemed really fun. The other one was a little more boring, but still good.

I didn't like the post-production editing either, it seemed a little over the top and sarcastic.

I swear if 'Spenser' with her smug 'sneaking a fart' looking face becomes the newest ladylike member, I'm gonna boycott, entirely.

Ashly's made a few posts calling Chan her 'baby' and girlfriend. They seem to be more private now but you can find their posts that their #shippers have screencapped on Tumblr under 'Ashtel'.

Urgh they both looked like extras from the start of Pretty Woman (to put it nicely). Like what is it with trying to make lingerie stuff into day wear or other 'looks' as if it's acceptable for mixed company?... keep that shit for the bedroom where it belongs.
