Moldovans Lose Appeal, Andrea Polito Might Be Writing A Book

Neely Moldovan, of Polito v. Moldovan fame, might want to hurry up and decorate that nursery while she still has money left. She and her husband, who last year went viral with their tales of drama concerning wedding photographer Andrea Polito, lost their appeal last month and things seem to be sliding straight into Craptown for the couple. A post by Brian Mullins states:

…Andrea and APP are waiting for a new court date to be set as the Appellate court decision to throw out the motion to dismiss has cleared the way for the lawsuit to proceed. The original cap of $1 million dollars no longer applies and the court can choose to award any monetary amount for punitive damages.

The author says this case should leave people “absolutely gutted that over a misunderstanding of $125, the clients and media felt it was okay to absolutely torch a business” simply to ““settle the score” through the ever elusive “viral” story”.

Andrea Polito is evidently moving on professionally – the post claims she is “finalizing a book which not only talks about what happened and how she dealt with the social shaming, but how she not only kept her head above water during a very difficult time”, and says she has “a few speaking engagements lined up to discuss how social shaming has affected her and how to move forward.”

    Team Andrea here, but is there really enough meat on this story to justify a whole book? I mean, I'm bored just thinking about it.

    THIS! (47)NOPE! (2)

    • Leslie NOPE!

      Agreed. 200 pages of legal briefings? Yawn. Although, I'm hoping there's a tawdry piece of the story we haven't heard yet, and maybe she'll disclose it in her book. (Doubt it. But I'd buy the book juuuuust to see.)

      Actually as a ghostwriter, I'm thinking she could get a 20,000 word book targeted at small business owners with some tips on protecting your business on social media. Don't know if it would be a super bestseller but there's definitely a market for it. She won't do herself any favors if she makes it a biography of how she overcame the evil witch Neely - people will just wonder about Neely's "side of the story" then.
      Lesson 1 - don't use your own name as the name of the business.
      Lesson 2 - the Moldovans are just horrible people who can only feel good by tearing someone else down.

      It'll still be better than any of that shilly drivel Neely writes on her blog.

      Yes there is. Social media reviews have ruined some businesses. The federal government just passed a law that allows consumers to continue to post reviews without intimidation by businesses so this will keep happening. My guess is she won't just talk about just her experience but this phenomenon in general and then use herself as an example.

    I can't WAIT to read that super-inspiring book on how she overcame all those trials caused by her own selfish narcissism and stupidity.

    So I clicked over to that article, which linked to the appellate court decision which I'm reading with much glee and franzia. I am just wondering how much the clerk of Justice Stoddart (because let's be honest, usually the clerks write these things) was dying laughing having to write things like "Neely owns a for-profit business called 'A Complete Waste of Makeup, LLC'...nothing will make your blog sound like a complete waste of your f***ing time than having have a juvenile name like that. And obviously anything called A Complete Waste of Makeup is FOR profit.. I can't imagine what kind of non-profit that would be hah! Classic.
    Man I wish I was APP's lawyer...I bet deposing Neely was f***ing awesome.

    Surely, she didn't tweet a meme that suggests Angelina Jolie's divorce filing will provide Jennifer Aniston with closure when, very shortly, the lawsuit against Ms. Moldovan will provide Andrea Polito with closure?

    That seems a little lacking in awareness, even for someone who tweets 7 times in one day about Jen/Angelina/Brad and then wonders 'aloud', on the 7th, how long we are going to be hearing about Angie and Brad's divorce.
