So, I know a couple of years ago a whole slew of us DLers friended "Helen Lawson" on Facebook when a thread on that parody account was posted. \
Last night the guy behind the account had a meltdown (a weekly occurrence for him) and threatened suicide, deactivating his real account. Suicide threats was the last straw for me, so I blocked "Helen."\
Now, even though I''m thoroughly over the drama, I''m worried. Does anyone know if he''s OK?
He was fine until you blocked him. But that sent him over the edge.
I''m watching this too. The guy is hilarious, but the biggest drama queen I have ever seen.
I was initially amused but then I found him tiresome. All of the VALLEY OF THE DOLLS characters have Facebook pages, and you can friend them, but they''re even less witty than Helen.
Lesson learned: never add people you don''t know in real life. Facebook isn''t Twitter.
I added him/her a while back but I blocked him; four updates a day is enough!
We just hope you''ll plant your own tree on his grave, because we''ve already finished our collection.
Friended helen for a day. The guy who runs her posted way, way, way too much. Five YouTube videos in a row, several times a day. He just doesn''t (or didn''t?) get it.

yeah; got over his fake persona quickly.
I know that bitch. \
I think Helen Lawson was the wrong cultural figure for her to emulate on Facebook. Sybil would have been a more appropriate choice.\
I wish her a far more healthy space than she''s in, but also? I have enough drama IRL, don''t need to cultivate that shit online. She needs help.
PS, I just looked at her profile on FB. She has posted recently, so she seems to be OK.
AIRBHLIDJFEAPAWS. That is all.
There are two different Helen Lawsons on facebook.
I wish everyone who thinks Helen Lawson DL replies are clever, would leave here and spend all their time on that Facebook page.
Mincing Prisspot alert on R16.
I started the "What's Your Favorite Helen Lawson Show" thread several years ago. I turned out to be funny and popular. I never named myself "Helen Lawson," nor am I fanatical about the character.
"There are two different Helen Lawsons on facebook."
There's only one Helen Lawson that comes out of Facebook and that is Helen Lawson, and that's me, baby, remember?
The REAL Helen Lawson is alive and well and living in Australia
R16 is right. The Helen Lawson routine has been run into the ground by a bunch of humor-challenged idiots who don't have an ounce of the wit that the original Helen-posting queens showed.

You didn't happen to save it somewhere, did you? That was some funny funny shit!
really funny stuff on the original thread
The original Helen Lawson thread was laugh-out-loud funny. I wish I had saved it.

R22 is right on target. Helen Lawson posts are even more tiresome than the "This is why they hate us" troll.
R22 is correct.
r. 26 & 27, twinks who have never seen VALLEY OF THE DOLLS and have no idea who Helen Lawson is.
r.28 = humor-impaired eldergay still trying for that GED.
There hasn't been an amusing Lawson post in at least five years.

Some funny shit indeed. I have a printed-out hard copy of the first twenty pages or so lying around somewhere. Well over 100 posts in the old DL format before the current version. I made a printed copy for a friend that didn't have a computer at the time.
I'll try to locate it and scan it if possible.
Glad I kept it.
R31, please do! I know it would take a lot of work but I for one would be very grateful!

I disagree r30. It's been nearly six years since there was a mildly amusing Lawson post.
Helen Lawson posts always seeem like something posted by a pre-schooler.
