Classmates said Weinergate woman was headed for tabloid scandal
The ultimate Weinergal recently sat down with a keyboard and tweeted out her thoughts, assembled here and rendered in Q and A format.
NYHB: Did the New York Post really interview you for Friday's front page story?
GNC: If I've refused to do interviews with credible shows like Good Morning America, why would I give an interview to @NewYorkPost? It wasnt an interview. I spoke candidly with someone posing as a photog assistant
NYHB: You said you don't believe Rep. Weiner’s account was hacked, but that he may have been trying to send the photo to a porn star with a similar name?
GNC: I never said the picture was meant for a pornstar***. He suggested it and I said maybe. I don't know and don't care.
NYHB: Ah, the power of suggestion! Why did you talk with the New York Post at all?
GNC: I was "Trojan horsed" by an NY Post reporter who never said who he was or that he was interviewing me. And after that invasion of privacy where they got me to speak casually, there's still no story here! Let it go.
NYHB (wonders) : Why did Gennette try to disappear from the internet over Memorial Day Weekend?
GNC addresses that: "If u recede from the public, youre accused of hiding something. If u face down your accusers, youre accused of being an attention whore."
NYHB: What do you REALLY think of all this?
GNC: If you want to know my position on this whole thing, I suggest avoiding @Newyorkpost and @politico. It's pure slop.
NYHB: Thank you for your time, Gennette!
GNC: Thank you for taking the time to get the story straight. I really appreciate it.
***Ginger Lee is the stripper and porn star who follows Weiner on Twitter. According to Politico, back in March, Lee tweeted about wanting “sexual relations” with Weiner and, less than two weeks later, she wrote that she’d received a private direct message from the congressman. Weiner had also followed Lee on Twitter but said he stopped doing so when he found out who she was.
Weiner said in an interview with CNN earlier this week that he thinks his note to Lee was a “fairly pro forma thing that goes out” to people who follow him on Twitter.
This "composite interview" was inspired by the creative writing liberties taken by The New York Post. (GennetteC has been tweeting back and forth about her "interview" with the New York Post. This ficticious interview was prepared using some of those messages.)
Genette Cordova, cover girl!
