Just listened and was immensely relieved Stefanie was so fair in her views on GOMI and even encouraging us. Huge fan points. 

The one thing I totally disagreed with is it sounded like Stef thinks this thread has been critical, but I thought we were pretty much all in agreement that we love FCOL. I think it keeps getting better. 

ETA: Ooooh crap. Things just got ugly on FB when Alison heard the podcast.

Allison (Hammer and Nails) bugged me so much when she was on FCOL that I couldn't bring myself to listen to her and Skip's podcast. I agreed with Stephanie (FCOL) when she mentioned that things in Skip and Allison's relationship could not possibly be that perfect. My husband mentioned that Allison gives her husband a back rub every morning and every night after he heard it on Adam Carolla and I could not roll my eyes hard enough. But that is because he was bringing it up in a- hey here's an idea- way and I don't have time for that. 

Wow I find it sad that people are actually bothered by hearing someone else has an amazing relationship. Yes, it actually can be that great… No one said perfect, but pretty close. It's obvious that the naysayers aren't as fortunate. If you actually listen to our podcast, you'll hear us bickering all the time… But you never sweat the small stuff because life lessons teach you what's important. It wouldn't kill you to check out some of the episodes of our podcast, start from one of the ones in the middle, the earliest ones are of course we were getting a feel for things, but it got much better as time went on. We actually get a lot of positive feedback from listeners. Feel free to comment if you think it sucks, but don't you think AFTER you listen to it would be at least be the respectful thing to do? It's not really cool to bash something you haven't even heard. I think that you'll find that we are the most down-to-earth and real people you'll ever listen to. That's what the listeners seem to like about us the most. Or not. catfight

Ok, so I have been debating replying to this. Like Stefanie said on FCOL, I felt like this shut down the conversation, so here goes. I was not bothered by your amazing relationship. But your persona did annoy me. Sorry, but it did. The thing is, there are a ton of people "in the public eye" that bug me. Not everyone is your cup of tea, you know? I didn't even say anything that bad, just that you bugged me and I can't bring myself to listen to your podcast. Just like I can't bring myself to watch Dr. Phil or Nancy Grace. Is that fair of me? Probably not, but when the market is saturated with options, why am I going to choose an option that bugs me? I am sure you are lovely, down to earth people with a great relationship. I just don't have any interest in your podcast. Sorry.

And finally, I may be a naysayer, but that does not mean I am not as fortunate as you and Skip. I love my husband very, very much, I just don't have the time to give him twice daily back rubs.

I love the FCOL b***hes. I, for one, would gladly share my Franzia (or Diet Coke) with them.

Not sure why this looks quoted…but this part isn't. 

Oh no. I just looked at Facebook.. and it seems like SWT isn't going to engage! good for her. I'm not sure why AB would be so upset? I don't think SWT or LC said anything they wouldn't say to AB in person. Isn't AB busy? she has a full time (incredibly hard) job.. a podcast.. television show.. and Skip's back to rub? why is she cruising the internet looking for a fight?

It's in the comments on the FCOL facebook page about their last podcast. Nothing big, just AB saying Stefanie is a jealous hater.

It's on the FCOL FB page on the post about this episode. Total douchebag guy starts ranting about it first. It's so true that it just never looks good to respond when you're mad.

I still want to sink into the ground over my comment about her looks. 

I thought Alison had more snarky b***h in her that she would see GOMI as we do. I just didn't realize they didn't hear this kind of stuff in forums all over the place.

Sorry ladies, I love to participate in a friendly snarky conversation that involves me, but apparently that would make me "unprofessional", I missed the memo where ppl in the public eye can't actually engage with the public. I'm sorry, I saw you all as my equal, I didn't realize I was supposed to be so far above you all, as I've since been schooled

SWT brought up a good point. The forums I read on this website always speculate whether or not the blog writer secretly reads here and then perhaps passive aggressively responds through their blog/Instagram etc.
The only experience I have with a blog writer coming on this site was Simply Taralynn a few years ago. The recent Alison comments almost created a "pull back the curtain and expose the wizard" moment for me.

I think part of the fun/excitement is the snark plus the guessing game whether the podcaster/blogger has any knowledge of this website. I don't mind that SWT talks about this site hi-103 just wanted to get other Hams thoughts.

I don't think that's what Stefanie meant… I think she was more saying that if you are in the public eye, there's bound to be stuff said about you EVERYWHERE and so, it's best to just let it be and not respond to the negative stuff. BUT, I totally don't think you were trying to defend yourself on here, and I didn't find your involvement in this thread annoying.

Well, you realize that just set yourself up for a public reprimand for writing something kind to me… but with that being said, I'm going to risk another 10 minutes of reprimand and criticism and say "thank you". :)  You are correct, I didnt feel defensive at all… I enjoy interacting with people, and I have no problem not being everyones cup of tea.  It'd be ridiculous to expect otherwise.
