Stop yelling at me

"What the hell is wrong with you?"

Once again Dad proceeded to rip into me at dinner tonight.

His deal was that I do not need to spend this much money for an apartment. I did not need 3 bedroom suites and what the hell do I need servants quarters for?

I kept telling him it my trustfund could cover the whole cost. Then he went ape**** screaming that money is not to be wasted and that I was on my way to ruin and that this was all Grandma's fault. Mom sat calmly, thinning her lips waited for Dad to stop screaming then told him to go into the other room and watch one of his dvds.

I thought Mom was going to go off on me but instead she poured some tea and started talking about shoes. She asked about my Jimmy Choos which I got on sale for 300. She asked if would I have bought it for 500? I told her no since they were out of season. She asked about my Louis Vutton handbag and when I bought it. I told her when it was on sale. She asked me how many stores did I go to. I told her like 5. Then she smiled and said "It looks like I have taught you something." .

She explained to me that I should treat buying an apartment like I was going shopping. I need to find the best deals. She said I had to find comparables that way I can figure out the best price by by comparing apartments and what they offer and how much they cost. Just like shoes are affected by seasons so are apartments. The winter time is the best time to find bargains for apartments because people are busy shopping and its too cold to go out. By seeing as many apartments as possible you get a better idea to what to buy.

"The most important thing you need to do is look at yourself and figure out what you really need." she said. "Remember your grandmother did not not become rich by being reckless."

I was like, here we go again, another lecture.

She took my hands and said "I know you think we are being hard on you, but we just want you to make the right decisions."


When I told her I felt like they were treating me like a kid, she told me to stop acting like one then and that I was smart enough to know better since I talked to them about the apartments instead of doing stupid. They appreciated that but I needed to take more responsibility for myself. I have been given a rare gift and that I should not take that for granted.

We chatted about her trip to California and made a date to go shopping to buy toys for my sister and her kids. Dad was watching the Rundown for the hundredth time and I gave him a quick peck on the cheek and he whispered goodbye.

I felt blah after that and I just didn't want to deal.

I am sorry, but as someone who works very closely with LVMH, I can tell you THEIR BAGS NEVER, EVER GO ON SALE! I thought this blog was cute, and a bit true, but I can tell you that this one statement has changed my views a bit. Jimmy's go on sale, in fact they had a sample sale last week, but LV's NEVER MY DEAR. You lie, and that's just pathetic.

She may be shallow but she's not fake PP is the truest friend I know. She's also one of the smartest girls I know so step off! How many people on the planet could make her own web pages like this? VERY few I bet.

Whether this blog is fake or real, I imagine it'll be turned into a "book" and a nice six-figure publishing deal for the "author", considering all the attention it's receiving. Not to say that any of rather poorly-written "content" on this site is deserving of sitting on a bookshelf, but that's beside the point. It's not about quality, it's about what people will read. This is probably why this blog was created to begin with....

LVMH (parent of vuitton) is a very strict company when it comes to how its products are marketed and sold. The vuitton line is only sold at vuitton boutiques (even if they are miniboutiques located in larger department stores) and they never ever go on sale, and I mean never. As a LVMH connected friend once said "the company would rather burn unsold stock than put it on sale." Perhaps you bought your shit on ebay with your "trust fund" or, more likely, your are fake.

Wow, way to state the obvious guys! We have some real rocket scientitsts in here. Can everyone stop posting that its fake and just enjoy this please? It's much better to read the comments from the people who believe its real rather than every one of you jackasses who come on here trying to dazzle us with your CSI-like abillity to debunk what is obvious to the rest of the world.

If the purpose is to enjoy the "obvious" fictionalized blog (which I never read until today because Curbed mentioned it on their blog today) then you should not be so concerned with my abilities as a rocket scientist. I only read one story but I would imagine that all of this becomes much less interesting when you know it is fake.

I don't see what all you people are complaining about.
Yes, PradaPrincess has it a little easier than everybody else, but that doesn’t mean we should hate her.
Like most average people in Manhattan, I only make like around 90k a year. I know, it’s tough, but just have learned I make do with less. Like sometime, I use cabs instead of a car service. And when I need money, I have to actually ask my Dad for it (he’s not dead yet, so no trust fund, damn). I’m only 25, so it’s still not too embarrassing, but it makes me feel like I’m part of one of those trashy Jersey families who all live together and are always asking uncle Carmine for extra cash and stuff.
This may come as a shock to some of you, but I only live in rental, and it’s on Madison and 71st. Can you imagine a more dead and over neighborhood? I may as well be living in Yorkville. Ha!
Anyway, speaking on behalf of average people who are in the bad situation of having to rent instead of own, I’m not going to be hating on PradaPrincess. She is what we should all aspire to be one day. Homeowners. And not hand-to-mouth renters. I am such a loser!

If you are writing a fictionalized blog and want people to believe that it is real, then you should research appropriately to avoid scrutiny. If it is your life you are talking about, then write all the crap you want. If it is fake, you better make it good or it does not deserve to survive. If I am a "jackass" who has ruined this blog with my "CSI-like" abilities, then that sound you hear is me patting myself on the back for making the internet a better place. Peace to the fellow "jackass" who regularly reads this blog for the comments derived from the master trickery brought upon those other "jackasses" who actually believe the "obvious."

"Someone" "likes" "quotations"! Nope, your not ruining it. I derive half my pleasure from reading the comments from idiots. Thanks!

The quotations were there to place emphasis on the clever words you used in your prior comment. "Jackass" and "CSI-like" were so brilliant I just had to work them into my comment. I clearly have hit a sore spot with you as a reader (or writer) of this blog and it is clear that you do not want to discuss the obvious issue. I have simplified it for you (there is no need to thank me with one of your clever comments, I will just assume you will call me a "douchebag" and we can leave it at that). If a blog is fake and is portaying itself as real it deserves to be scrutinized as if it were real, otherwise it sucks and does not deserve positive comments. Call this "anti-blogging" or whatever you want, I was just pointing out that your (this) blog sucks. Thanks for making my day special as well.

Wow, watching "CSI" has "paid off". Now your "conspiracy" has grown to include "commenters". You're "funny"!

By the way, if I was PP I would just "erase" your "comments".

Actually, R.M. Bass's comment is a lot funnier and more entertaining than anything else on this site.

What conspiracy are you talking about? My point is a theory, not a conspiracy. I will make it real simple. As you have admitted, you get your kicks from reading comments other people make about what you obviously know is a fake blog. You may even call them idiots for reading about some rich girl's problems. You have clearly stated that those of us who do not play along ruin your experience. The only explanation behind your defense of this blog is that you are the author. Assuming that you are the author, why are you so upset when someone like me reads your blog and laughs (by pointing out a mistake) at the person who wrote it? Wait, let me give you a clever answer which again avoids the issue at hand. I suggest, "wow! you amaze me, why should I get pleasure from reading comments from clueless idiots when I have comments from assholes to read."

I'm not the author moron. If I was, I'd just erase your comments.

I said, "the only explanation behind your defense of this blog is that you are the author." Not "the ONLY answer is you are the Blog Author." Good job, you are well on your way to becoming a journalist.

"It couldn't be that I enjoy reading it." - If it was that you just enjoyed reading it and were not offended by my comment, then why not just be happy to learn that you will never be able to buy a vuitton item on sale. Instead, you felt the need to call two individuals jackasses.

"I love it even more when poeple think it's real and get all pissed off and email her with hate." - I told you I only read one string today because it was mentioned a NYC real estate blog called Curbed. Furthermore, my email was not sent with hate, it was a fact and led to a point which you have obviously not been able to grasp.

"It also couldn't be that I am annoyed by idiots who have to point out the obvious, thereby thinking they are some how smarter than everyone else. lol. I can just see you fuming over there, checking back every 5 minutes to see if I replied, carefully forming your responses." - Again, I have offended you and you reply by calling me an idiot. If you read into my argument it goes well beyond the pointing out of the obvious. If the author of this site makes it obvious to the rest of the world that it is fake, then it is not written well. He/she needs to shut it down, learn the lesson and start over again.

"I love this blog!!!" - Shameless self-promotion.

Lastly, read this comment again, "Whether this blog is fake or real, I imagine it'll be turned into a "book" and a nice six-figure publishing deal for the "author", considering all the attention it's receiving. Not to say that any of rather poorly-written "content" on this site is deserving of sitting on a bookshelf, but that's beside the point. It's not about quality, it's about what people will read. This is probably why this blog was created to begin with...." - This reader is basically saying that this blog is shit but people will read it anyways. I am saying that people probably read it because they think it is real and if they find out that it is not real...then it is just shit.

I am done, you can try discuss the point at hand or call me another name (as I stated "douchebag" has not been used).

Hi, I'm just a simple Canadian boy, so please forgive my country ways, but what is a "B&T"?

Thanks in advance...

It means Bridge and Tunnel. Refers to people who come into Manhattan. Think Richard Bey.

thanks PP. I'm not really familiar with Richard Bey, but a quick google indicates he was an afternoon talk show host, so I'm beginning to get it.

So, if the person is a B&T, s/he's not living in Manhattan, but comes in to work or play there or something? So, basically, anyone who doesn't live in manhattan is a B&T. That's a lot of people.
