As we continue to provide coverage of the ongoing social media saga of best-selling Latina author Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez and her public campaign to criticize the treatment of her book series, The Dirty Girls Social Club, a few sporadic negative comments about what she has written on Her Blog are starting to appear. Mind you, the vast majority of comments have been very positive of Valdes-Rodriguez but comments criticizing her opinions and unfiltered posts have surfaced.
Valdes-Rodriguez has already said to us that she is allowing all types of comments to be posted since all opinions should be heard.
As this story grows, it will be interesting if a pattern of comments begins to appear. It means that the story is getting out there, yes, even during Christmas holiday. Here was one posted to her WordPress blog last night. The post was taken down today, but it was up for a few hours on the blog:
HA HA HA!!! YOU start a fight at Christmas time, talk all kinds of s—, illegally publish their script and now that NBC has sent you a cease and desist letter you cry …oh they sent a poor penniless single mother a cease and desist letter on Xmas eve. What a hypocrite! You can’t have it both ways honey. You started this ridiculous fight and right before xmas. You took their money…by the way $5000 is a lot of money for a book that has been optioned twice before and failed…and signed on the dotted line. Most deals only want “based on” a novel. They don’t want to make the exact book. You say they want to make another Sex and the City….yeah NBC wants to, that was one of the most successful series and just got a second run on syndication and two movies. You say you have so much integrity but you are a nasty piece of work. I don’t see anything wrong with the changes they have made…next time don’t option your book…but then again I don’t think anyone will want to…they haven’t been that good lately.
What do you think? Is this getting too personal now? Let us know.
In the meantime, Valdes-Rodriguez continues to tweet on Twitter, sharing additional information from the copy of the Dirty Girls TV script she has received.
Here is one she posted at 2pm EST on December 26, that reveals the beginning of the script and is now being shared on Twitter:
Finally, Valdes-Rodriguez is also posting on her Public Facebook Profile and getting support there as well.
UPDATE, January 1, 2011: The Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez blog posts referred to here no longer appear on her site. Valdes-Rodriguez hinted that certain blog posts would very likely be deleted in accordance to the statement she published at Please Respect NBC.
