Well I guess author of Her Best Kept Secret, journalist Gabreille Glaser http://gabrielleglaser.com has struck a nerve in a few places. For one in the anti stepper camp, Gabreille is our hero, someone who seems to tirelessly stick her neck out, write another intelligent, evocative piece and get herself on the airwaves, radio, or TV, Katie Couric or CBS 48 hours The Sober Truth.
But it was this recent appearance on Chirs Hayes’s show on MSNBC that is bringing out the big guns….who will be next Oprah? Who knows, but I expect it will be someone good.
A big Thank you to Chris Hayes, and MSNBC for having Gabrielle on the show !
The Atlantic published her piece on Tuesday, just three days ago. There were over 4,600 comments by end of day three. At first it was filled with pro AA’ers blasting Gabrielle and how did she DARE say such things about a program that had helped their father, their mother and the baker down the street!
But what really got me going was when a poster shared what Marianne Williamson, LA self appointed new age guru wrote on her FACEBOOK page. With quite a bit of followers, seems to me that Ms Spirituality lost her shit and spewed her venom on over to spray on Ms Glaser’s parade.
SO a whole crew of us descended on her public page and laid our truth out for all the steppers to see. I bet they are still calling me “vile” and what Gabrielle did “dangerous” .
I find it interesting that they think AA is above reproach. Why are they so arrogant?
