It''s because I''m half-Oowish! But I won''t give up my fashion yummykahs. Come and get me, vice squad!
They tried, but the camera lenses kept cracking.
I''ve watched the ''Welcome To My Home'' video and all the parodies, and read about her messy divorce. She seems like a good-hearted gal, and I think she got taken advantage of. But she is incredibly self-obsessed, has zero taste, a brazen name-dropper, not very articulate, and a typically bad soap actress. The clips from The Young and Restless are as funny as the parody videos.
About 15 years too late.
Her t.v. son (Thom Bierdz) is becoming more and more like her.
Just today I was wondering what Brenda is up to these days. Now I know she is posting here...%0D\
Stay by your phone dear. I''m sure Marc Burnette will call any second..
[quote]The remarkable Marc Chery honored, Creator and Producer of Desperate Housewives. Please write Marc at ABC for a possible part. We talked about me.
Maybe she could get a port in the internet version of OLTL or AMC?
R7. That "we talked about me" caption is one of my favorite things on the Internet.\
I think poor Brenda is mentally I''ll. And not in a good way.
Tupperware has never had a spokesmodel and despite her similarity to the plastic product, the company never bough the idea.
Zak, --try the veal bitches!
Brenda posted on the Awful Plastic Surgery site, in response to an award they gave her, that she has never had ANY plastic surgery, typing with a talon tight from the unintended consequences of a recent brow lift. \
I typed a follow up comment (as Brenda) lamenting all the Jews in the industry, how the pansies in make-up get pissy when you bring a litre of Cutty Sark into their trailer in the morning, and how fucking Marc Cherry misconstrued that my mercantile arrangement with Arab businessmen was in lieu of being a nighttime network star. \
Someone claiming to be a writer in television posted a response telling Brenda that she would never work in television again with her nasty attitude towards Jews and gays. \
Within hours, the real Brenda had gone full Cheryl, demanding that the webmaster remove the entire thread, providing her address and cell phone number.
It would be tough to wrangle her in a reality format. She has no sense of humor about herself and wouldn''t go for a lot of the set-ups.
She also still thinks she is a star. \
When asked a year ago about appearing in a small role, instead of being grateful, she immediately made demands about craft services and requiring a "honey wagon."
She couldn''t carry a show (Brenda who?) but would make an awesome supporting character.
We''re almost ready for a re-launch of ''Fernwood Tonight''. It would steal the ''Twin Peaks'' twisted verite vibe without needing the plot.\
It would also require actors who are attractive, if you squint, who can deliver inappropriate emotion.\
As far as B. Dickson, she''d be perfect, but she needs an abusive manager who believes in cattle prod therapy.
BD was quite the MILF bad in the day...now she''s an irrelevancy quite honestly. The Bells might not the best people in the world but their show still goes on and Brenda is still whining about everything. BD should go into the what ever happened to Andrea Evans(Tina Lord) category? she''s another one that disappeared as well from soaps save for other unimportant soap stints she did. I also have a bitchy/queeny story to tell about that one......
spill, get your story off your chest, you''ll feel better
She looks like Pam in ''True Blood'' when her face started rotting.
Brenda is a soap icon. She pretty much was responsible for Y&R''s surge to #1 in the 80s. And Bill Bell rewarded her by firing her. Jess Walton is a better actress, but she lacks Brenda''s charisma.
The bit about her making the show a success is a Brenda fatasy, which you have bought into. \
She was fired for being an unreliable pain in the ass with a crazy attitude.
Y&R did not hit number 1 until 1988 - a year after Brenda''s firing. Trust me, she was not the Susan Lucci of CBS Daytime.
"Anne Hathaway did fantastic in Les Miserables!"
"DIDN'T HE?! Now which part did YOU girls want to play in Les Miserables?!"
I'm a saucy boozehound.
Because she has a scorching case of crazy bitch.
She is positively insane.
She is ABSOLUTELY insane.
I remember reading an article on Awful Plastic Surgery about her and under the comments, Brenda had posted a looooooooong post that read like the rants of a drunk.
Full of misspellings and faux-legalese, she threatened the webmaster, claiming she had NEVER had any plastic surgery and that it cost $450,000 to use ANY picture of her on the Internet.
She then posted her CELL PHONE NUMBER [!] and demanded that he call her before she had the FBI take him to jail.
She is, needless to say, not a well woman.
She does look good in that dress at the link.
Kudos to OP for using "Brenda Dickson" and "reality" in the same sentence. It's the closest BD has been to reality in decades.
What's tragic is that you KNOW she still has ALL of those awful, dated, tacky soap opera costumes in her closet still, and probably wears them from time to time.
"The Bold & the Beautiful" should get her on as a replacement for Sally Spectra. If only she hadn't trashed Bill Bell in her book. I genuinely believe Brenda is suited to the soap medium. Whatever 'reality television' exists today is not HER reality.
Wouldn't she make a perfect addition to one of those 'Real Housewives' shows?
I've never seen them and don't watch trash TV but from what I've seen, she'd be great for one.
The original "Welcome to my Home" is back on youtube!
I just read her book.
She is absolutely INSANE.
She talks about how the "Welcome to My Home" video made people care about fashion again, led to people caring about what is worn on the red carpet, invented shows like Fashion Police -- and created the concept of "reality TV."
She talks about how 50,000,000 fans watched her divorce on TV.
And that everyone is jealous and intimidated by "by great beauty and award-winning talent."
She has written to Google "thousands of times" to get them to stop having a picture she doesn't like pop up when people search her name.
She thinks Deven Green (whom see only refers to, repeatedly, as "a so-called comedian") has worked tirelessly to sabotage her career (at the behest of Sony, Inc.) by posting ALL the negative comments about her on the Internet!
Not a well woman.
Writing about herself in the third person:
"She created a hit, runaway internet film she wrote, produced and directed called, "Welcome to my Home" that was put on by a fan. The film quickly garnered 3 million viewers. Sony Pictures (The Bells) took it down in a false copyright claim. Dickson produced the film into a DVD. This reality film paved the way for all of the recent reality series. It was taken over by a woman who decided to lip-sync over it, in an illegal, fraudulent copyright infringement. This so-called comedian attached onto the goldmine of the film that Dickson produced. It is believed that she has been hired to do these expensive lip-syncs over Dickson's material to discredit her. The film was way ahead of its time about fashion, diet and exercise and how to apply makeup properly. Dickson brought people into her home to spend the day with her. She showed her cat and dog and did a fashion show of over the top, couture gowns from the 80s. The industry took note of this film and suddenly a reality show was born. The Kardashians brought you into their home. Other shows did the same. High fashion became a Red Carpet must, and all of the industry was changed. Blue jeans and tee shirts were suddenly replaced by top designers."
Brenda's entertaining but she's loonier than Carrie Fisher, Margot Kidder and Courtney Love fighting over the last Wellbutrin on earth.
I read her book, and as much affection as I have for her, 90% of it is the ravings of a paranoid lunatic.
I feel sorry for her in many ways. I think she was likely mistreated by the courts in both her divorces, but she's just so full-on crazy, that she's not capable of putting her case together in a coherent way. I can't imagine what kind of client she was for her lawyers.
One theme that comes through loud and clear:
She was just a big ole whore. Slept with nasty old men to get roles, cars, handbags and houses.
I just read the free pages on Amazon. Wow. In so many ways. Just wow.
I doubt they could get any footage past the lawyers.
The whole things reads like she took a few belts of scotch, grabbed the microphone from an old Dictaphone machine and keep yapping until she passed out.
What year exactly is "welcome to my home" from....?
It's so timeless & elegant
I think "Welcome to My Home" was made in 1987.
I just found out that Brenda is a Freeper!
In a comment on YouTube she posted about how she's going to sue Huffington Post for writing that she's homeless I clicked on her YouTube channel.
She has ONE subscriber.
And he LIKED on video: FoxNews talking about Benghazi.
Brenda issues a public statement about the death of her former costar Jeanne Cooper and, of course, uses it as a gimmick to push her stupid book:
[quote]I AM DEEPLY SADDENED AT JEAN COOPER'S PASSING. MY CONDOLENCES TO HER FAMILY. IRONICALLY MY NEW *BOOK COMING OUT THIS MONTH COVERS HOW JEAN WAS TREATED ON THE Y&R SET. WHICH I FELT WAS SOMETIMES CRUEL. BRENDA DICKSON
Keep it classy, Brenda!
Brenda Dickson doesn't need a reality show.

So saddened, I couldn't even spell that old bitch's name correctly!
Poor Brendad. Wrote a book she thought would be a blockbuster (and turned into a major motion picture) and the press yawned and wrote about other things.
[quote]The film was way ahead of its time about fashion, diet and exercise and how to apply makeup properly.
In some regards, it actually was. Brenda talked about avoiding sugar because it ages you. While Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) are known about nowadays, there were not known in 1985, when she made the [italic] Welcome To My Home[/italic] video.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
