I read Victoria Jackson's book so you didn't have to.
I read every SNL book I can get my hands on and just finished Victoria's. Bitch is crazy.
Any juicy gossip? Apparently everyone hated her on the show- even the writers. Lorne was Citizen Kane to Jackson's Susan Alexander Kane; no one knew why she was on there.
She is crazy but she looked good on that SNL in the 80s special that was on the other night.
R2 Everyone knew why Susan Alexander Kane (Marion Davies) was there. Are you implying that Lorne was screwing her?
I would not even wipe my shitty ass with that Rethug, holier-than-thou cunt's pop-up book. I hate her.
Nora Dunn, Dana Carvey, Jan Hooks, Ghost of Phil Hartman
Not a lot of gossip at all. All of her SNL stories were featured in other books, Victoria calls Nora and Jan bitches who are huge problem on the show in a meeting. They slink off and she says "Thanks for standing up for me guys" and Dana Carvey says "You didn't hear anyone disagree did you?"
Al Franken cornered her in a hall once and said her ditzy act offended him b/c she said something intelligent in another meeting.
She claims her voice is the result of some palate disorder.
She's addicted to Chardonnay.
Her career is amazing. She stalked onto the set of Happy Days and just started doing handstands on the table. They sent her to the Laverne and Shirley set and it sounded like the Big Ragu who'd invited her to a volleyball party that night said "Do you want to fuck now?" Which offended her Baptist sensibilities. She's super weird about sex.
Oh and her handstand act got her on Carson and Johnny adored her and that led to SNL. That's it. No training, no act not much of anything but the baby voice and the handstands.
The book was disjointed at best. Her second marriage to her cop husband sounds at least verbally abusive. She was told by Andrew Breitbart to tone down the crazy. And lots of FOX and other conservative personalities have disavowed her. She says it's b/c she's so religious.
The crazy religious always think it's about the religious when it's about the crazy. They love being the victim.
[quote]Lorne was Citizen Kane to Jackson's Susan Alexander Kane; no one knew why she was on there.
No one knew? Isn't it obvious? I'm sure she justified it to herself by saying anal or blowjobs aren't intercourse.
[quote]She's addicted to Chardonnay.
This would explain a lot. Either medicating a previously existing mental condition or the alcohol has contributed to a twisted, nasty personality.

Who abuses who? Or is it mutual?
Her husband clearly doesn't like her (she's fucking crazy, duh) but he is constantly putting her down and she seems to think it's funny.
I would say, yes, she's an unmedicated bipolar. She gets sort of schizophrenic too. God has talked to her 3 times. Which she details. Bad poetry and her blog posts fill in the rest. She thought Jan and Nora were trying to poison her coffee. Now why hasn't Jan written a book?
Bipolar with psychotic features. Yeesh. She has a young daughter, doesn't she? Or am I confusing her with Jeanine Turner?
All three of the girls were crazy. People tolerated Victoria more because she was a lot easier to be around. Jan and Nora were Bette and Joan at 30 Rock. Between feuding with their costars and trying to backstab each other.
Here's her kid and grandkid. Looks like she drank the Jesus juice.
Did Victoria read her book?
No kid and grandkid photo link, R12.
Sorry, here is her kid's FB
Howard Stern tore her apart. He let her go on and on, and just pointed out how fucking stupid she is. He even exposed her sick childhood.
She was in a movie called Casual Sex (I'm not sure what year but it was a long time ago). I think she went topless in the movie. Was she always a fundie?
That was late 80s with Lea Thompson, R17
She was topless (with her hands barely covering her breasts) when she played the slutty babysitter in Baby Boom. That doesn't seem very Christian-like, does it?
The pictures of her father in her book do sort of scream "gay face." He was a lifelong gynmast and former Catholic turned fundie Baptist. Victoria is very adamant that she knows lots of gay people who have never acted on their urges.
She makes no secret that she'd love to have an acting career again and it looks like she resents her husband for moving her back to Miami at the peak of her career. She admits to actively shilling herself as a celeb right-wing guest on various shows. The problem is she can't hide her crazy and is ill-informed so she's not a good spokesperson. Well, she's perfect for the Tea Party b/c they are also crazy and ill-informed.
It looks like her daughter is a rightwing nutjob herself. Look at the "like" section of the FB page.
I'm only 2 pages into this article on her from the Miami Times and I feel so fucking sorry for her crazy ass.
"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...
