Tippy has still not publicly denounced the Kimkins Diet, and has not apologized for her role as a PR person and admin at Kimkins. Perhaps she is still of the same opinion she voiced when she tried to sign up at Amy’s Eating Low forum that Medusa reported on:
“I suppose I am expected to make some sort of apology but really I am not sure what I am supposed to say.”
In a statement by Tippy made on Mayberryfan’s blog the other day she says:
“I feel extremely guilty for what I said to Christin and Deni on TV. Not that it makes it right but I was scripted by Heidi as to what to say to them.”
Is this an apology? Blaming Kimmer? Didn’t you say this on National TV? Even worse, if you didn’t agree with it, you lied. Was the money worth it?
And then Tippy goes on to say that she didn’t believe anything that Christin, Deni and Becky said until AmyB complained about the same problems:
“I do think back about Kimkins members complaining of being so cold all the time and I wonder now if their thyroids were screaming out to stop. But at the time I was cold losing weight too and thought it was just the way it was. I didn’t believe what was being said about hair loss as I have mine BUT when AmyB started complaining I began to question her privatly. It was Amy who made me see the truth. And the truth is there are some serious side effects to Kimkins. I thought it was from doing the plan behind the plan, and that may well be but upon further digging I now see the plan behind the plan was THE plan for a long time as preached by “Kimmer”. I apologize to those whom I didn’t believe. Kimmer assured me it wasn’t true, the Ducks were making these things up, and well, since I didn’t suffer hair loss, I believed her–until I heard it from AmyB.”
We did see the rant on LCF about the “Ducks” all being created by Catherine, the former business partner. What I can not understand is why it was easier to believe Kimmer, at the time a confirmed liar, than the former admins, Cutie, Kiki and all the people on LCF that you have known for years. Were we all liars, being orchestrated by Catherine? Was it the money that made Kimmer more believable than the rest of us?
With regards to Kimmer’s sockpuppets on Kimkins, Tippy says:
“She asked me to take over for “Danielle” in the Bootcamp forum as “Danielle” was away. She later causually mentioned she was Danielle, as if I had know it all along.”
Kimmer probably thought it was so obvious that “Danielle” was a sockpuppet so she couldn’t believe you didn’t know. The rest of us don’t have much problem identifying sockpuppets over there. So what happened when you found out? Did you leave Kimkins? Demand that she stop using sockpuppets?
In an additional comment, Tippy says that the Ducks are “making fun of, bashing and exploiting posts of Campers”. Where are these posts? I haven’t seen them. (Well, with the exception of the huggiessssssss Fawn).
If Tippy refers to the post I made about maintenance, I actually thought she would be flattered to be mentioned together with Christin and Deni. I was mistaken. Tippy did not want to blame Kimkins for her problems to find a maintenance plan.
I especially love how Tippy talks about the Ducks. Still referring to us as if another species, she is now saying:
“I am starting to understand Ducks are not bad people.”
Starting to understand? Bad people? So the hundreds of people posting on LCF with the combined goal of removing kimkins.com from the internet and bring Heidi to justice were considered bad people?
And as a reason for not speaking out Tippy claims:
“I have been silenced due to a bann from LCF. And I got banned from Eating Low too, as you may recall. I tried the blog but I was bombed with so much meanness and I found myself reacting very unkindly as a result. I can’t allow myself to become that so I pulled the blog down and decided to just stay within Camp.”
While I agree that the blog attempt didn’t work out well, I would suggest you try it again. I, for one, really want to hear what you have to say. Not having access to the Camp, I can not see what you are saying there, unless it gets reported to me. Perhaps not accepting comments on your blog would allow you peace to write down what you want to say.
