Dex and Courtney's wedding is off ... and you can find out why by watching JenniCam. "Jennifer Ringley ... is in the eye of a virtual storm as a result of her relationship with Dex, ex of Dex and Courtney, whose wedding invitation promised a 'spiritual love fest' of 'two souls uniting in harmony' (it was still on Courtney's Web site -- -- even as Jenni's cam showed her and Dex having sex in her bedroom)."

Oh come on, does this kind of. . . development. . . really surprise anyone? This is Jenni, after all.

A fairly brutal BBS update from Courtney, who gets my vote for the kicked-in-the-teeth award this month:

"I posted on my bbs that I was going back to sacramento tonight. Then I was told Dex and Jenni were having sex on cam again and damn.. .. I can't do it.. I can't go back there. It's not my home any longer. I could never step foot in the backyard again, of the very least, the carcus of dex and jen's last little party still lay strewn across the yard. I can't be in that house, knowing what is happening around the way. I have to let it go. I have to let the control that this situation has over me go, .. for my own health or i'll break. And then.. that means I've lost all control. So.. she can have it all. My man, my backyard, my neighborhood. I wasn't ment to have it. I'll be back sometime this week to find a place and pack. I hope I'll be able to keep my dog. I miss her. I miss home."

Dare I ask: Why does anyone give a damn?

Because the World Wide Web is all about two things: horrifyingly stupid psychodrama, and naked chicks.

And perhaps because, when push comes to shove, most of us still recognise that cheating is hurtful, and we sympathise.

solistrato's back, 8 days after promising never to post again.

Glad yer back.

"She's funny, she's gorgeous, she's got better furniture."

I *love* that.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out; Jenni's always come off (no pun intended) as a pretty nice girl, if a bit flighty.

I attribute this to stupidity, not to malice.

Uh, dex, is he the one-legged guy on "Big Bother" or the black guy on "Survivor"?

Not quite malice, but definitely beyond tactless.

JenniSlut's parents must be very, very proud of her. How come nobody's tried to interview them?

They can't find Mr. and Mrs. Cam in the phone book..?

(I am TRYING to give this thread the disrespect it truly deserves...)

Actually, Dex is the one-ARMed guy from sluggy freelance. Duh.

Lemme guess. This is sweeps week for the CAM network, right? Y'know, most of the time when I stop by her site, all I see are pictures of her cats or her sleeping. But then I still have yet to pay for the premium service.

The thing of it is, that if you check out Last Week At Jenni's Place, you'll notice that most of the excitement of the cam is either:

- Jenni sitting at her computer
- An empty chair
- A smidgeon of nudity

Now, why the hell should I shell out $15 a year if I'm only getting a SMIDGEON of nudity?!?!? COME ON!

And yeah, Thirteen, I caved. This is what happens when work is slow. "Well, I suppose I could always see if anything's on MetaFilter..."

I'm led to believe that crack addiction occurs in much the same manner. You're bored at work, and you just think, "Maybe I need some crack." The next thing you know, you're sucking the glass dick, looking like Chris Rock in New Jack City, hating yourself and watching Jenni floss.

Yeah for fifteen bucks a year I at least would want a date! Man! *smirk*

This is so ... college. Somehow I think living her no-life on cam hasn't helped Jenni grow up.

cams are supposed to help you grow up? damn... think mine's broken :>

She was being, shall we say, orally pleasured by someone on camera last night, presumably Dex but who the hell knows. And the way the shot was framed made me think it was staged.

And no, I don't go look at JenniHomewrecker regularly, or at all. I was in a room on IRC and someone said go look. So nyah.

Oh, no, aaron, I never go look on my own eitehr. (The very idea!) Really, I got bored, mainly because she remained (as one journalist put it) a feckless college girl trying to live an invented life. The sad thing is, this business is all too real. One person's already been hurt, and I can't see this sleazeball being any more faithful to Jenni that to Courtney. She's driven her friends away, embarassed herself deeply, revealed an appalling lack of character. Adults don't do this to other adults. (I know that it happens all the time. I mean real adults.)

You *did* get that, right, Matt?
