We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
I go to France somewhat regularly and from my experience it's really hard to get around using English. In Alsace it's somewhat common that people speak both, French and German, but English is still not that common. Even (or especially) in Paris English won't get you far either. People pretend not to speak English and when you speak French with an accent they keep pretending that they don't understand you. Not everyone of course, but that's been the main reactions I personally got pretty much every single time I traveled to France.
I'm shocked at how the tables have turned... Obviously only the people actually IN the relationship know what's going on, but DAMN! Manaki an abuser ? I doubt it. Of course I don't know him personally but in the videos he was featured in he looked shy and quiet rather than abusive in any form or shape. And it saddens me that Venus is now blaming her mother for her own marriage to Manaki. Last time I checked the couple getting married had to do so out of their own free will... And while there are still arranged marriages out there, I'm sure her mother wouldn't have been able to force her signature on their marriage certificate... Venus seemed happy enough to get away from Korea and her mom and move in with Manaki back then. Was Venus too young to get married ? Probably. But she's really acting like a spoiled brat throwing tamper tantrums, and has been for a while. She said she supported him financially. Well, news flash here: married couples support each other financially! They pay bills together, they buy stuff together, and usually the person with the bigger paycheck foots bills more often! No reason to act all high and mighty and as if she did him a favor. Without his love/adoration/attention (or whatever the relationship was build on on his side) she would never have been able to live in Japan. In regards to her "not being anyone's doll anymore" (quote from her video): I remember someone saying that there was an "incident" (lack of better word here rn) where he asked her not to dress in Lolita in the countryside or something like that. This is speculation but maybe he wanted her to dress/act more grown-up in certain situations and she didn't like that. While he certainly doesn't look it (damn those Asian genes!), he IS years older than her, has gone through Japanese school and works in a Japanese company, so he is definitely more mature and experienced in life than Venus. Her upbringing and past is not her fault of course, but she's going through mental puberty at the age of 22, while her (ex ?) husband has been a salary man with a steady job for years. I am not an expert on Japan but my experience with Japanese people/companies/society is that they expect people to follow their rules and meet their expectations (no matter how outdated those are at times). From what we know, Manaki tried to be as open minded as possible with these cultural settings in mind (it was said that he lets her experiment with girls and supported her with her YouTube career, pets, protected her from her mother, supported her recovery from her weight loss surgery issues etc.). It honestly makes me angry how she's been talking about him recently. While I usually take whatever Margo says with a truck load of salt, I'm somewhat willing to believe her when she says that Venus used Manaki and now that he served his purpose she's dropping him.
I don't think her therapy is working. Also I think she said she's off meds just recently... No I don't really think so. This is something different. Looks like someone being extremely pained by life and/or giving up on life.
Miranda: "The furniture blended so well into the wall that the immigration people didn't see it." Everyone else: "Miranda, if you can't see your own furniture it's because you're in desperate need of a pair of glasses!"
I wonder how she got so brainwashed. To me, that's what she is. And @BHMansion: I also don't get how she doesn't see that her religious rules don't mean anything to non muslims... I really can't follow her train of thoughts at all anymore...
Now which category does one pick to report stuff like that on Insta ? And later on YouTube, because that's usually how it goes...first she posts stuff on her social media accounts and then it goes on YouTube.
If she really gets deported to Hungary she probably still holds an EU passport, which means she can move anywhere within the EU. So given her language skills there's a possibility her next stop might be Germany, Austria, maybe Majorca. Tbh I would have expected them to move to one of these countries instead of the Netherlands when they left the UK.
I think you guys worry way too much about her. Like, about every single detail. She's a grown woman, an adult. If she wants to eat out, who cares ? If I were in her shoes and people online would constantly analyze my spending habits and give their two cents about what I should and shouldn't do, I'd go bonkers. It's like neighbors you don't know whispering about your life. It must be exhausting to first have your mother control your life left, right and center and then getting every step over analyzed by followers online. Of course she's a public figure but she needs to be able to grow, learn and make mistakes like everyone else.
I don't understand why this has been down voted. Anyone care to explain it to me please ? Also please ignore the "7 hours ago, Myosotis said" part. The forum software won't let me remove it.
I swear, the forum software hates me... So THIS is the post that I was referring to in terms of down voting.
