She is quite grabby, it’s cringeworthy. I don’t remember her being a Killing Eve fan before this. Also I just remembered that awful story she told where there weren’t enough free throws at some glamorous party she attended so she sat and stared at some women that had an extra one all night until they left and she got it. :rofl:
I don't think she ever was a fan, as a huge fan myself and I have just finished Season2 (us Brits got it after the USA) I am sure I would have remembered her talking about it, obvious she just wants free stuff.

Oh i dont watch killing eve anyways lol typical carrie that girl hasnt had to do any hard work she makes me laugh i get up at 10.30 every morning she says and then does her famous insta story yawns...imagine i consider 8.00am a lay on and a 10.30 is hard for karen...
Same! I mean plus or minus a half hour where I sneak in a little extra sleep, I am normally up nd running by 9am. Granted I am lucky to have a job that allows me the freedom not to have to wake up at 5/6/7 in the morning but I still personally feel so bleck if I would wake up at 10:30/11 everyday. And I am NOT a morning person, I sleep at like 12ish or 2 almost every night.

And I'm 25.
So sometimes I am super shock to see how she is just rolling around still in bed like "I earned this!"

I borrowed on the otherside from my library . I havent read a book of Carrie's since All I know Now which I thought was okay. nothing special not too bad not too hood. I shall update you guys with my thoughts once I finish it.

I read this when it first came out. It would be ok if CHF wasn't so desperate to set herself up as the LGBT ally to end all LGBT allies (think maybe she's much than just a touch jealous of Hannah Witton and not just for her Killing Eve pyjamas!). Every character has some kind of LGBT identity and there's 2-3 pages wasted on how Carrie/Evie learnt of everyone's sexuality. Oh and then Carrie/Evie saves the day for the LGBT community by dumping Pete/Vincent to marry the guy she doesn't love that her parents want her to marry so her little brother can be free to live his own LGBT life. I wish I was kidding! And then an entire chapter about how Pete/Vincent's life was utterly miserable without Carrie/Evie and how (no prizes for guessing this) every other woman he ever got with was a meanie hater bitch who was mean to him! Oh. And then in the after life she comes back as a tree (Again: I wish I was kidding) that grows weird fruit that tastes horrible to everyone but Pete/Vincent who dies as he finishes eating to be with Carrie/Evie in tree heaven! It just felt a little insulting: insulting to the LGBT community that the 'only way' he could live his own life was by his white knight sister sacrificing her entire life and happiness for him; insulting to Pete/Vincent that she left him after all their trials and tribulations etc; insulting to the guy she married and the kids they had that even after 50+ years of marriage the entire time she was thinking about someone else; and insulting to women because this crap was marketed as 'Women's Fiction' when clearly it's little better than a children's book - YA at best. This is not adult fiction!
There's lots more crazy badly written nonsense (like the bit where Carrie/Evie and Pete/Vincent write notes to each other by rubbing notes onto a white bird that then shakes off the messages at the other end until it's completely black and that's the only reason they have to stop contact!). It might be worth reading just for the laughs.
I agree with one amazon reviewer who said it's near enough impossible to work out the time setting for OTOS as it's all over the place. With all the LGBT inclusion you think it's present-day, but then Carrie/Evie is being sexually harassed at work and just.... puts up with it..? which makes you think it might be in the 1950s.
Overall CHF needs a much better editor/proofreader and then she needs to learn to listen to whatever feedback they have for her.

Hot damn that’s so fitting Image

Also yeah, your parents both working wasn’t a “sacrifice”, it’s what most adults who choose to have a family to support do. We only ever went on one family holiday growing up, which was paid for by my grandparents and happened when I was 2 so I remember literally nothing. Both of my parents worked full time, and I’m sure they did make sacrifices to make sure we had things like a fun Christmas/birthday presents. But I’m not about to play the victim and make out like we were on the brink of poverty just because we weren’t as well as as the rich kids at my school Image

Carrie’s lack of awareness is a product of her middle/upper class life, she needs to go volunteer in an under privileged country or at a school in a low income area to get some perspective.
(I don’t have much idea of the socioeconomic areas in the UK, but if she was here in Australia I’d chuck her out in an indigenous community and she could see just how prissy she comes across sometimes)

I was just randomly thinking that one of Carrie's biggest problems is that she is so over Youtube. She tried to force it with May, Myself & I but it massively backfired to the point of losing her thousands of subscribers.

If it wasn't for the money I feel she'd quit her Youtube channel tomorrow. You can tell she really struggles for content and her heart just isn't in it at all anymore.

It's a shame as I used to love her videos but a lot of creative people experience burnout and maybe Carrie should try taking a break for a while rather than posting any old fart. It couldn't hurt, and I'm sure she is in a position with the money she already has where an extended rest is something she can do.

Its the money thing that's the problem though. She's desperately kicking out content to try to stay relevant and keep her cash flow up. Her regular insta q&as are almost certainly to make sure people remember her. May, myself & I was entirely about generating views and ad revenue but she's actually shooting herself in the foot by driving viewers away with rubbish content. If she just slowed down and posted quality over quantity she might be able to save it.

I doubt she makes much in ad revenue with her low views and how many people use adblock. I think it's more about wanting to keep making videos so brands can send her freebies to sneak into them

Don't forget that previous acting jobs asked her to make vlogs, even if she won't admit it helped her get the part, it definetly had an impact. Without her youtube channel she can't do these paid jobs for her shows.

She made such a fuss about meeting her agents the other day, wonder if it means she's got something new coming up !

The freebies will be a huge part of it for sure... But she's probably making average £200 per video with what? 10minutes work a day? It's laughably easy for her because she's got a bunch of fans who will literally lap up anything she puts out there no matter how crap it is.

I feel like Carrie would benefit from a monthly vlog style, like Dan Layton, Tomska, Hazel, Chloe Dungate etc. She could actually put effort into her vlog style again, like she did during her brief Casey Neistat period, and just show the interesting parts, rather than the same day in and out like her more recent vlogs.

Or failing that, come up with a new format/series and just post a well made video every few weeks. Quality > Quantity Carrie. She doesn’t have a regular upload schedule when she’s not in a show anyway, so I would rather see one thought out video every few weeks than a bunch of meaningless fluff.

She could do a “Things to do before 30” list where she tries something she’s never done before. She could do home baking videos. She could try Pinterest craft projects, or try to learn a new skill like juggling, or pottery. None of these ideas are remotely original or flashy, but the reason I stayed watching Carrie for so long is because of her personality and charisma. She’s the kind of person I would (or at least would have) watch do a simple, well filmed/edited video of herself enjoying doing something.

Her videos these days just seem like she’s going through the motions, and it’s honestly a shame to see she’s clearly lost her passion for what made he do it in the first place

Am I the only one who thinks she pronounces "Yorkshire" really oddly? Maybe it's because I'm from Yorkshire and it's a Southerner thing but she says it like "York-sheer" and I find that so weird.

Also her being confused by old Yorkshire dialect made me laugh.

Hey Carrie, wheear 'ast tha bin sin' ah saw thee?

Her latest weekly vlog is misleading as hell, because she lures everyone in with clickbait for a MINI HEATHERS REUNION and then makes you sit through a minute and a half ad for her Secret Garden audiobook. In the description she uses #Ad but its not listed in the video title or thumbnail, so I reported it. I suggest y'all do the same. I wonder if her vlogging the recording was part of her contract, yet again? :roll:

No, I wouldn't want to listen to the Secret Garden. I prefer it in a hard copy. I did buy the Flatshare, only because it would be the kind of book I would listen to on the train.

I think she said she was going to see The Light in the Piazza today/yesterday. But my cynical guess is that she wants to go suck up to Dove Cameron more than she wants to support her friends.

I hope I’m wrong and I’m just being a negative grump.

If you are going to post videos as frequently as she does, your life has to be interesting. Hers was but now it isn't. She's gone from being someone who read, posted covers, backstage videos and advice to someone who stays in bed and shouts a lot in between social media rants. Personally I'd like to see her interviewing other people she's working with about their careers, advice they can give MTers etc. That would take the spotlight from her so it will never happen. Why has she stopped getting roles whilst those around her are working non stop eg Scott, Olivia, Jodie etc? Oh yes, they are MT trained not just one trick ponies. Carrie can belt and pull the face. Given that she has such a long break, why not take classes? Tom, Gi and Oliver all trained. Why is she so blinkered?
