Hypocrisy - updated

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool my twice, shame on me."

I don't allow people in my life to fool me more than twice.  Anyone who really knows me is very well aware of that.

At this very moment I'm extremely angry, but I'm not going to do what I COULD do just yet, because it's time for someone who I thought was genuine to show their true colors...not just to me, but to quite a few people watching the situation very closely.

As I wrote in my previous blog post, I wasn't aware that an ex-friend of mine felt that I "pimped" her name to benefit my own projects. I've never made a DIME from any of the videos posted on www.MonicaAtHome.com or on www.youtube.com/MonicaAtHome - none of that work was about money - they were about EDUCATING THE PUBLIC OF THE TRUTH OF THE PORN INDUSTRY. In actuality, considering several elements that are relatively unclear & extraordinarily controversial in regards to her past, I'd say that my attaching her name to any of my endeavors has been more of a "loss" rather than a "gain"...but that's besides the point.

Regardless, after my ex-friend made me aware of her thoughts and informed me that she wanted to sever our friendship, I respected her decision, have removed links to her websites from mine and posted a brief Monica At Home video outlining to my viewers that she and I will no longer be working together.

But get this...

I found out tonight that my ex-friend is utilizing (or should I say PIMPING) MY NAME, my image, and MY HARD WORK (videos that took me HOURS to edit and produce) in order to fundraise for HER OWN project.

I have informed my ex-friend that she needs to stop utilizing my name, image and work to raise money for her venture. She's not an idiot...she is more than capable of either editing the videos she's using to where ONLY SHE is showcased OR she can produce HER OWN videos.

Enough is enough.

*Update: issue resolved - the ex-friend stopped using me name, image & work.
