I''ve often seen her mentioned on threads here talking about legendary past threads or topics, but have never really gotten the full story on why she was so popular on this site at one time. I know this was pre-Lost, and I just finished watching season seven of ER, where she played Dr. Legaspi. Was she popular on Datalounge because of her lesbo role on the show? Can anyone give the reason for her being mentioned alongside Red Dragon Cheese and Griselda Medina?
I asked this once and no one answered me....I don''t think there are many old-timers left on DL. That said, I think she''s REALLY hot and would love to hear some of the old tales retold.
No you wouldn''t. Believe me. That was a scary time here.
I''ve been here for 10 years so I''ll try to remember the outline.\
She was in GIA and, as R3 said, was HOT in those scenes with Angelina. Then she was on ER. Around that time there was a poster who is a loser LA-dyke singer. I''m not going to say her name. She mostly used her initials anyway - DE.\
Someone (probably DE herself) posted that DE and Mitchell were an item. It took off from there, spiraling into a world of crazy, chalupa frenzy.
I am going to go there: Danielle Egnew.\
What it was, OP, was there existed a diehard group of freaky fans who came out of nowhere to worship at the altar of Elizabeth Mitchell as soon as she got that role on ER.\
They became obsessed with her and CONVINCED she was gay.\
She is not.\
So we made brutal fun of them, in the same way some DLers still make fun of the "womyn" who attend Michfest.
one who knows
Are chalupas earth shoes?
Or Lesbian flip-flops?
no/ the chalupa thing came from the diehard Elizabeth Mitchell fans'' message board called "Drop the Chalupa".
The chalupas were a bunch of crazed fangrrls who obsessed over the Kerry Weaver/Kim (?) storyline on the TV show "ER". A fan started a website called "Drop the Chalupa" (a play on the Taco Bell ad campaign); this website was devoted to the relationship between these 2 characters. Somehow, the DL found out about this website; hilarity ensued. The posters/members of DtC were called "chalupas".
A "chalupa" is a type of taco, no?
It used to be commonplace to see threads with titles like "Are (insert name of fangroup) the new Chalupas?"\
They were the gold standard for fan insanity until the Ponies came along and outdid them.
I thought the Ponies were before the Chalupas?\
Just think of Elizabeth Mitchell as being the current Anderson Cooper on DL.\
The Albino Freak''s worshippers are the current Chalupa trend, or the closest thing to it.
[quote]I thought the Ponies were before the Chalupas?\
Mitchell was on ER in the 2000-2001 season. LotR didn''t drop until December, 2001, and I don''t remember the ardent fervor starting until the second film came out a year later.
The Voice of the Night
VotN is right. The ponies came after, although in the Chalupa Hayday the two threads were both often on the front page at the same time.
op is an idiotic troll
*do the Pee-Wee Herman "Tequila" dance!*\
ta da ta da da da ta ta\
ta da ta da da da ta!
I think the OP is a cutie.
Thanks, r17 ;)
[quote] Just think of Elizabeth Mitchell as being the current Anderson Cooper on DL.\
But he''s gay. She''s not.
She supposedly was involved with Angelina Jolie during the making of Gia- on-screen and off. Angelina likes to seduce her co-stars. \
Heard she had a long-term relationship with an LA-based female musician. They were semi-outed and the growing "negative" press started hurting her career. Shortly after this happened she quickly got married and had one child. Still married to the same guy.\
For what it''s worth- She and Evangeline Lily are very good friends. They became close while living and filming Lost in Hawaii. Elizabeth always speaks glowingly of "Evie" in interviews. They''d make a very cute couple. Not that they are mind you!
r21, you sound like a chalupa!!\
She is NOT gay.
I think the original "Drop the chalupa" ref was made in the recap on Television Without Pity, and the EM fans started calling themselves chalupas almost instantly.
Every celebrity who plays a gay role in a movie or TV show automatically becomes Datalounge Certified Gay And Closted \
in Real Life.\
And if you don''t believe it, there are dozens of people who KNOW FOR A FACT that so-and-so is gay, because they have a friend who dated him/her
The Mitchell-Cooper comparison is not apt, because, as mentioned, Cooper is actually gay.\
It''s more analogous to the "Jake IS Toothy Tile"/Brokebackies.
Marcia Cross IS gay and married a man shortly after gay rumor really took off here and elsewhere online.\
Elizabeth Mitchell is NOT gay and married a man because she loves him. \
Lastly, I would put good money on a bet that r21 was a member of the Drop the Chalupa board.
Ha! There! I started a thread. Come and flame me all you want, NLA, fireants...
Mean Green: How do you know that MC is gay?
I heard she was in a relationship with a woman when those rumors started circulated? And dated her real gf due to the rumors involving Egnew, who wasn''t her real gf? Or something? So that was totally wrong and Elizabeth Mitchell is straight?
R21, I heard the same thing. R22, how can you be so certain that she is straight? Have you spent every minute of her life with her? \
I''m not some crazy Elizabeth Mitchell fan, I''m just curious. It''s lame that you posters call anyone who suggests that Elizabeth Mitchell might actually be gay a chalupa.
Oh, I remember those crazy times. DE even jumped into the fray herself, making cryptic type comments about how this kind of thing can harm a non-outed person''s career, blah, blah, instead of just saying "I don''t know this person and have no idea how this got started." Then a bunch of DE fantards would fly in defending her. \
After a decade of Monday morning quarterbacking, my conclusion is that Elizabeth Mitchell is more than likely a straight woman who may have dabbled in bisexuality. I would not be shocked if Angelina seduced her when they were making Gia. That said, I think the DE nonsense was just that, nonsense that could have been put to a stop if that DE person had simply denied any connection to Mitchell. \
Some of those threads back then were absolutely hilarious, though.
The best parts were watching DE or her long term gf Sheena Metal have a meltdown on DL claiming she was being stalked by a poster here named Amy. But then she would turn around and antagonize her on the threads, all the while befriending Amy in real life. Very strange woman, that DE. 10 years later and she''s still trying to "make it."
Well, she has a dream....
Look, I''m late to the whole EM/Datalounge issue, but I really hate posters who INSIST so & so isn''t gay. Please accept the fact it''s a gay gossip board and stop acting like we''re doing said actor/actress an major disservice by calling him/her gay. Elizabeth Mitchell excepted, generally if an actor/actress is not gay, these ''rumors'' don''t take off. Where there''s smoke there''s usually fire. I have no idea if EM is gay or straight or bi, but if I want to have 9 million people telling me she''s straight, I''ll go to IMDB.
Explaining why the Chalupas were mocked here involves explaining that Mitchell is not gay.\
Obviously she''s gay-friendly and sure, as you say, she''s "hot" but this is not a case of claiming someone who''s been speculated about is not gay just to be an ass. It''s to answer the OP''s question.

Silly r37. Jorja IS gay.
No, I''m not, silly R38. I guess you haven''t read the multiple interviews I''ve given where I talk about how hot my male co-stars are.
"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...
