Looking at that whole Webby thread…wtf at all the ~~support~~ she's getting for her idiotic actions. She says she's hiding out and sending her boyfriend "emojis and gifs" via Facebook to remind him that she's not speaking to him and the entire Hive is chiming in to say "You go girl, that sounds so gratifying!" Jesus, seriously? Isn't this a fully-grown woman with multiple kids? I never read Webby's stupid comments and I feel like I've permanently lost a couple of IQ points after reading that thread. Never again.

You have to love how Jane is ignoring Dan's obvious disdain for physicality by leaning on him. Hello, bad boundaries. And don't tell me Jane isn't exaggerating her laugh for the camera. Jesus, how painful.

 

Yeah, at first glance it looked like he was appearing to be a good sport for the posed Friday open thread photo shoot…but now that I think about it he appears to be holding back his laughter- genuine laughter. And check out how smug and obnoxious Amber looks now that Emily's out the door and she's truly top dog.

I still think he's an asshole for making her wait 3 hours for her pain meds. He should have just said no.

She can't go get it herself? Or say "Hey, would you mind going now, I'm really hurting here"?

Of course, she probably said nothing and sulked in her room, fuming, which is ridiculous. However, I still think it's a dick move to make someone wait on purpose.

Anybody else notice that they removed the photo of Dan, Jane, Marci, Amber  from the open thread and replaced it with one of Emily, Jane and Marianne?

HOLY SHIT. Only when I view the front page. When I view the article, it's the old one. 

Praying to Madame Pantsuit that Ems changed it in a fit of butthurt (because I'm sure they wouldn't have bothered to take away her privileges) while the office is empty.

They didn't even bother changing the first paragraph of the thread, so it's still talking about the 'doctored' photo that they had up originally.

Of course that's what happened. And while yeah, I do feel bad for Ems because of course getting fired ain't no fun, how like her to flounce in on Amber's cattiness and try to make sure that everyone knows that she's still Jane's BFF even though she's no longer on staff, just like Cat was. Because Jane, with her lack of boundaries, will still totally hang with neurotic woman who can't get their life together well until their thirties long after they leave Xo. It's just how she rolls. And since Marianne is unable to leave her apartment to buy gloves much less make it to NYC, do we just assume that this is an old pic that Ems put up? (I mean, duh, sorry, but I think I'm still in a bit of a food coma from Thanksgiving.)

I think the more likely explanation for the photo switch is that the Open Thread is deader than disco and they're trying to drum up some intrigue so people will flock to the open thread to comment. All the open posts and question of the day/week and how do you spoon type posts have worn everyone out.

This shit has fascinated me for MONTHS, none of it makes sense unless xo is the most toxic office in NYC. Like, I get that a) Emily has been let go and b) they negotiated with her and allowed her to keep her title for a period. But if they have a confidential deal in place with her why all the half-assed backstabby bullshit? Have her send in 5-10 articles to run this month so internet commenters think she's still on staff. Make sure she's writing about something non-controversial, like nail polish or lipstick (lol) so people won't take over the comments section asking if she's fired. Photoshop her into that open thread picture. Cover your ass, Jane & co! I hope this instance of not-saying-it-but-saying-it-with-pictures got changed because someone in HR or Legal told them to stop f**king around with their contracts.

Well, the thing is Marci did directly say it in her haircut article. I also honestly doubt it would get them in legal trouble (I really doubt there's a contract for her to pretend she's on staff?? It's most likely just that she gets to keep the title for some period of time. Contractually obligating all the employees to keep up the farce would be really weird. I don't think they're allowed to lie about exit pay, though, if she needs a reference.).
