Shammy

In case you didn't already know, Lonelygirl15 isn't real:
The three creators declined to identify the name of the actress Tuesday. But amateur Internet sleuths discovered she is Jessica Rose, a 19-year-old actress from New Zealand who recently moved to Los Angeles."

Everyone was right, I was wrong. Typical. I'm not sure if I'll unsubscribe from her/their videos or not. Probably not.

Well, you know what they say. It is usually much easier to forgive someone for being wrong, than it is to forgive someone for being right.

Hee.

I find it interesting that there was no mention of Daniel in the article. I'm wondering if he was one of the 27/28-year-old masterminds behind Lonelygirl15. Daniel definitely looks older than high school age.

I wouldn't stop watching. It's still entertainment, just without the suspended disbelief.

I'm soooo gullible. I thought it was totally real and am a little sad it's not. I'll still watch it though.

I'm thinking they won't make any more now that she's been completely outed.

Bummer.

No worries, Natalie. New videos are being posted, but the story line is on more of a fast forward now. It's definitely lost something for me. Once I get over the betrayal (which I set myself up for) I'll get back into it a bit more.

What if, they acknowledged that it was fake, and then orchestrated a fake incident that we didn't know was fake?

Like, in the middle of filming something, they disappear, Blair Witch style and the footage turns up later, and they're no longer in character.
