Poor Bella


Bella is quite a popular blogger here on AdultFriendFinder

She has always posted lovely pics with each of her well written blog entries.

A few days ago someone pointed out that the blog entry pics were actually of an Italian actress, while her profile pics appeared to be regular digital cam shots (still very nice pics).

Yesterday Bella admitted the pics on her blog were of the actress, saying she admired her and also saying she never meant to make people think they were of her (trust me a lot of people thought they were).

Now today in her most recent blog post someone pointed out that even her profile pictures can be found in another members profile). The other member, TightNTanned1, is listed as living in Syracuse NY and was last logged in on the 18th of this month.

So who is who? Or are either who they claim to be?

Very interesting.....

That is sad...sadder still that someone found it nessesary to publicy oust her. I mean, if one has no intention of meeting her in person, does it really matter?

i can't believe that people would lie like that. so she is using two different screen names with the same pictures and posting pictures of some pretty italian actress? she is really pretty (if that is her), did she really think someone wouldn't notice? weird.

Nick, I too, assumed all pics were of the "Passion of the Blogs", Bella. So, Now we will all be interested in some sort of proof! But discreet is in her profile(s).
Butt, and lets hope she doesn't have a big one, what is her her gain in having the 2 profiles? Does it really matter? Who is being hurt?
I surmise that some feel their trust has been violated, they were deceived. It will be interesting to see this "soap opera" develop and how the occupants of the many glass houses on this site react! I guess this is our own blogger mini-drama!

Not surprising...anything goes here...it's all very amusing...unfortunately it's the "real" people on here who pay for the lack of trust. Blame it on the blog competition...some will do anything to get the most attention...I'm just content writing down my thoughts once in awhile and I'll never post pics of myself only because of discreetness and I don't want to be noticed solely on my looks but mostly on my profile...sooner or later the fakes get exposed I guess...good luck to them...thx for the interesting post.

Wanderlust,

I think several of us chose to 'out' her. Not sure if you are referring to me or to the first person that caught the inconsitencies.

Lots of people here had expressed an interest in meeting her, just wander through her blog comments.

My problem with the whole thing is the fact that she, in my view, was being dishonest. The biggest gripe by guys on this site are that there are so many 'fake' female profiles out there. I myself have reported 3 in the last couple of weeks (profiles which once you contact them come right back with an outside e-mail address and if you write to that you get a web address where you can see more pictures - like that is why I am here...).

While I cannot say Bella is directing people elsewhere (I actually don't think 'she' is). The fact that it looks like none of her pictures are real is dissapointing and by 'outting' her my hope would be that others would get the idea not to do it, just be yourself.

Bella's posts would have been great without pictures, and using other peoples pictures in your profile is against AdultFriendFinder terms.

I know how I would feel if anyone used my picture on their profile.

Postingnick, don't know you from Adam, or Tala4 and some of the others, but Reisender04 howls reading some of the posts you guys make, so you must be ok. Well his profile was pretty anonymous and milktoast, so we helped him out-just a little. Flip him shit about it when he gets back on here, if you wouldn't mind. He swears Bella is a old experienced Madame, screwing with the minds of the masses. Doesn't say much about the rest but can tell you he's finally found an outlet, its been since late 02, and he's getting human again, cracking jokes, screwing with us. think he's going to be alright. Yeah ok "so what?" right. give him hell about being closet gay, a sexy free spirit something. We're putting him in every wild group we can find and the piece-de-resistance we updated his profile for him. What are friends for? Shit I hope I'm gone before the bastard figures out how to get us back cause it's going to be killer I just knowit. thanks, The Minions

That is sad...sadder still that someone found it nessesary to publicy oust her. I mean, if one has no intention of meeting her in person, does it really matter?

Oh, Wanderlust, "That is sad...sadder still that someone found it nessesary to publicy oust her. I mean, if one has no intention of meeting her in person, does it really matter?" remember you said that. And sorry about the deer joke

Well.. as is the way of AdultFriendFinder the only comment that was here the last time I replied was Wanderlust's and now mine is the most recent but I will not be surprised to see a few more pop up.

I am certainly not competing for attention, posting 'bellas' name has most likely driven even more traffic to her blog and I was a visitor as well.

In truth, I hope 'she' continues to post as they are good reads. I just have to now do away with the 'fantasy' that there was this HOT italian lady in Canada that had heads turning every day.

I'd rather see no picture than a picture of someone else. And there are lots of people that go that route.

As for honesty, I should be upfront, nothing I haven't said before but this is not my main profile, I am a paying member and thats the profile I use in my vain attemtp to meet people from this site. I created this profile initially so I could post to the bulliten boards somewhat anonymously and the found the blogs. Why the double layer of privacy? Hey I am married as my profile states. No way am I taking more chances than I need to!! lol

Libel is a much harsher crime than posting a fake picture. Who is hurt if you post a fake pic?

Slandering someone elses reputation when you don't have proof is a different story however. This is poor journalism. I don't care if it's just a blog. You need to take some responsibility as a writer before you damage someone's reputation.

errrrr... ccninja......

Where did I say she was not who she was? I pointed out the oddities, I even suggested she contact AdultFriendFinder to have them get rid of the fake profile.

Once again, my attitude is and will continue to be that if you don't want to post a picture, then don't, if you want to post a picture that is actually of YOU - then fine. But do NOT use someone else's photo and claim they are your own. It is agains the site's policies and is the source of MANY peoples complaints on here.

Now she has deleted all of her posts and left one final one.

If I were her, I would have been writing or calling AdultFriendFinder and complaining aobut the other profile since she claims it is fake and that the person is using her pictures.

AdultFriendFinder can easily tell which profile was created first, a good indication of which one is the 'real' one.

anyways..... Bella's option was to cut and run. I will be interested to see if the owner of the other profile replies to the mail I sent her pointing out the similar profiles.

ps I'm not a jounalist, nor do I play one on AdultFriendFinder

Oh come on! Stop picking on Post! He didn’t slander anyone. He made a comment on something that had already happened.
If anything Ms. Bella brought all this on her self. Think about it...IF those photos on her profile were her WHY did she delete her blog, close her profile and leave such a heart warming farewell? All she had to do was remove Monica’s photos and maybe post a few of her own pictures (in a discreet matter of course) and turn in the other person who supposedly borrowed her photos. I’m betting she will be back tomorrow with a new profile, new photos and a new blog.

Wanderlust: I don't think the intention was to pubicly oust her. It just worked out that way.

Everyone said that they didn't want "her" to leave. We all loved the writings that "she" posted. She could have handled that much better and quashed it all but, like Post said, she decided to cut and run.

All done - now she even deleted her 'farewell' post. And no e-mail from either person.

I'd say this episode is over.

Nick...

No matter what others have said. What you and others did was a public service to the site and to the blogosphere here.
