    I also find it very amusing that all of us Italian chicks are sticking up for Tammy talk about mob mentality.
    about the mob mentality remark...

    As for the cussing being a humor thing... I don't think so. Remember in the previous show she was b***hing about Bonnie hanging out with the guys. And when Bonnie got chosen she had a quick remark about Bonnie's cattiness. They weren't impressing me as buddies who were just joking around by any stretch. Even though she is a comedian :rolleyes
    Perhaps the cards were meant to be a courteous gesture... but courtesy and being genuine don't necessarily go hand in hand. For example, there are people in my life I don't like, but I still acknowledge them and treat them with respect, even though I don't like them... but if I were to send them cards... well, I wouldn't blame them for calling it an ingenuine act.
    I'm not saying she's not a nice or sweet person generally, just in this incident that she came off as ingenuine, catty towards Bonnie and foul-mouthed to me . JMO

    That being said, I still think she's moderately funny on stage. (that's a compliment btw... )

    A handshake with a word of congratulations is courteous. Actually sitting down and penning cards is unusual enough that I can see the recipients not being sure how to take it.

    Clarification - I actually meant that I thought Tammy was doing a bit of mugging for the camera, going into her Mafia Princess persona when she was ranting about Bonnie. I think the cattiness is part of her schtick as well...it's her hook and she knows how to work it.

    I think.

    I think.

    I agree that when she was ranting about "doing the family" so the person suffers... it was definitely humor based and part of her schtick. But the reason she did it was because she was being pissy toward Bonnie in the first place.

    I think

    To give her credit, at least she doesn't put me to

    Having said all of that I don't think Tammy is all that good and I don't even want to know her. Maybe I don't even have mob envy. In fact I think I have Dutch envy. Amsterdam is very cool.

    I got all caught up in how sweet it was for her to hug Jon and Ant. I am a sucker for hugs and cupcakes with pink icing.

    THANKS, AJANE! It's remarkable to me how most people on the FORT can say in just a few words what takes me a few (well...QUITE a few) paragraphs!

    Anyway, I am only half Italian (the other half, Polish)...so I'm vain and temperamental...and stupid! But, I don't mind! (from The Man with Two Brains). I do think I understand the (rather bizarre) typical Italian mentality, though. And I think you've summed it up pretty well, AJane.

    I still think Bonnie deserved it for being catty in her "cool chick" way.

    But I give Bonnie the same credit...it might have been fun (in a kind of "gaper's delay" way) if she had stuck around a little longer.

    "I know I didn't give you all cards" (with rolling eyes) - yup, that's a real burn. Personally, I thought it was a funny moment and not worth a huge temper explosion.
