I’ve received a few emails from readers telling me that Wendy Bell’s blog is no longer showing up on the main WTAE web page and asking me if that means she is on her way out.
I checked it out and indeed, you will no longer see Wendy’s blog listed with the likes of Sally’s and Michelle’s, so I investigated.
The word from Wendy is that she has quit writing her blog, mostly due to not really feeling like dealing with the hassle that is hate mail that comes with every post. The straw that did it was hate mail accusing her of flaunting her wealth when she wrote about her new mattress.
About her blog she said:
What was supposed to be fun and entertaining became way too freaky. Good riddance, I say. Like viewers need MORE reason to rip into me?!! It’s a shame people can’t be happy enough with themselves to not take everyone else so seriously.
The word from Wendy is also that she is NOT on her way out at WTAE.
I’m good at investigative work aren’t I? Of course, I’m assuming that sending Wendy Bell an email qualifies as investigative journalism. I need like a magnifying glass now or at the very least, a pipe.
And I wonder … if you hold a pigeon under a magnifying glass with the sun shining through it for a long enough time, will the pigeon burst into flames like an ant? Hmm. I’ll be back later. I gotta go do some investigative work.
Also? That hot girl on Grant Street holding down a fat squirming pigeon and directing a strong beam of sunlight through a magnifying glass right in between its eyeballs? Not me.
