It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: What Would You Do For Internet Fame?

                                    Warning: Graphic Topic! (Video NOT included)

                         Welcome to Mom To Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

                               What would you do for fifteen minutes of Internet fame?
    This past week,15 year old Giovanna Plowman posted a truly disgusting video of                       herself to You Tube, all in the hopes of gaining Internet notoriety.
                 Before you can say feminine hygenie products, the video goes viral
                                               and Giovanna is a YouTube hit.
        I have to wonder if fleeting Internet fame is worth a lifetime of being known as
                   the girl who ate the used tampon or as she is being referred to
                                               on social media,"Tampon Girl".


  1. Before today, had you heard about "Tampon Girl"?
  2. Why do you think people are willing to go to extreme lengths to gain internet 'fame' or popularity?
  3.  What is the most extreme thing you or your child have done in the name of popularity?

This looks heavenly. Thank you very much.

I wouldn't do anything for the 15 minutes of internet fame. At least not for fame for myself. I don't need it. Don't really want it. I'm content and happy to be the best me I can be and the best mom I can be.

Quoting Cafe MichelleP:


Rose hip with honey coming right up!


Quoting Basherte:

I'd like a nice cup of rose hips tea with a little honey, please.

I've never heard of her, but I feel a little sick just reading what she did, never mind actually watching it.

Well that is very sad, but unfortunately doing things in life has consequences. Such as people saying very mean, vulgar, nasty things about you for doing something such as what she did. I still refuse to even watch that video because I still find that horribly disgusting. I have seen pictures of her and she was a very pretty girl. She probably could have done something else to gain fame. But very sad to hear about her death. Now I am just curious how she thought everyone was going to react to that video. Poor girl... She just wanted her 15 minutes of fame. I would never want to be in the lime light! But seriously I am very sad for her and her family! She was very young. You live and you learn I always say! If she only would've waited it out... People would've forgotten. I mean come on... I forgot all about it until I saw that someone had replied to my post.


Quoting meliscool72:

She won't be getting older, unfortunatly she committed suicide because of the comments on the video

Quoting SumthingSublime:

That is disgusting! What in the right mind gave her that idea? Yuck! I have no idea why people even want to be famous especially for something like that. When she gets older I hope she realizes how dumb that was. I can't think of anything I have done to gain popularity except for just being nice to people. Being popular or known by all is not even close to the top of my priority list.
