Her daughter was not being

Her daughter was not being bullied her daughter walked around the job lazy with an attutide and when she didnt get her way like a spoiled little brat she had her mom beat up her co worker. and she was the one being a bully beacuse the manager sent her home not the other girl the daughter was the problem thats why her manager sent her home and not the girl who you are calling a crackhead and a bully who did nothing wrong. So she was mad she got sent home and called her mommy like a little spoiled girl.And then is mad at her job for firing her and wanted to know why she got fired and tried to get unemployment. Razor City backwards rednecks that make all us southerns look bad.

oh my goodness what a dirty

oh my goodness what a dirty mouth...if you want others to think she is a good lady ( woman) then use better words! wow so not cool!

To all you of idiots who

To all you of idiots who dont know this lady or the situation, maybe you should shut your fat a** mouths. She is beautiful and successful and probably makes more money in a month than you f***tards make all year. She has SOOOOO many supporters its unreal (you'd think she killed Osama or something), shes getting all kinds of free stuff, flowers, messages, phone calls, posts, support coming from everywhere. There are just some people who will talk Sh** no matter what or who the situation and to those people we'd like to say, "Get a life and/or a job and get your fat, lazy, nosey behinds another hobby because you suck at life!" And honestly, shes probably one of the best things that has ever happened to Tabor City and the Chamber of commerce.

You wanna tell us how you REALLY feel?

You seriously need to get back on your meds before you pop a vessel! Oh, and for your information, she was arrested for assault. Arrests are public record. This is a public forum where people discuss news articles that are based on public record.

We can and will say what we want, when we want, anytime we want. Do the woman a favor and get her a fresh bottle of peroxide!

Wow! That really attests to her character!

Between you and taborcitizen (probably the same poster but if not, this becomes twice as pertinent):

Nothing says a person's an idiot better than an endorsement from an admirer who's a foul-mouthed , vulgar, hateful, can't-even-spell-Obama loudmouth with an anger issue. Looks like you're both cut from the same cloth. No wonder you admire her. If that's the kind of person she hangs out with, that's the kind of person she is.

Your posts do more to make her look bad than if you had said nothing at all. With friends like you, who needs enemies?

Beautiful Woman

This is one beautiful woman, check out her facebook page. Shes loved by so many, she just had enough of her daughter being bullied at work in NMB. She snapped on that chick and she got what she deserved. Shes classy, beautiful and very successful, she just broke one little law and a crackheads nose. Quit hiding behind a computer screen dissing her and call Elite One if you have something negative to say. Shes got so many supporters and there are just a handful of dumb a**** that dont know the facts talking crap. DS aka guesty

Friends in low places..

This story should have come with music. BTW was she fighting over a man or the last piece of chicken at Golden Corral?

Your negative comments let

Your negative comments let us know you are the one in a low place.

Her daughter you dumb ****

Her daughter you dumb ****

Nuthin' like a bleached blonde...

...barrel bellied, cagarette smokin', beer drankin' bimbo ta git inna tussle with! They breed 'em fine 'n tuff up yonner in Tabor City!

She is none of those things.

She is none of those things. Barrel bellied? WRONG! Just like everything else you posted. I get it, though. You are so perfect. Your physical features and body, you are surrounded by friends, you are successful in every aspect of your life. Nah, if that were true and you were happy with yourself you wouldn't have any interest in writing assumptions about someone that you don't even know.

Shes never smoked, only

Shes never smoked, only drinks wine, but she will stomp your butt too if you want some....keep talking ;)

banjos playing


Are you insinuating that

Are you insinuating that people from Tabor City are the equivalent of the mountain people portrayed to be ignorant and savage in the movie "Deliverance"? Yes, our town has been in the news for some negative things. But you don't know this woman or anything about her, and for that matter any of the rest of us. When people are put in difficult situations they sometimes go to drastic measures. And let me tell you, you can say what you want about me. You might be able to get away with hurting me, but you'd better not mess with my kids. I don't know the details and I don't agree with arguing, confrontation, or physically assaulting another person. But this woman is not some redneck that picks fights. And if she assaulted someone over her child whatever they did to her daughter must have been pretty bad. We all have our limits. Someone just pushed too far. If you hear banjos playing you aren't referring to Tabor City. We don't do banjos or say yeehaw. You people are doing nothing more than kicking people when they are down. Does it make you feel more confident? Superior? You'd better check yourself. You may find yourself in the same position. Down for one reason or another and before you can get up, a group of opinionated, insulting, ignorant group of people, like you and others who have put her and our town down, come along and kick you when you are down. The difference between you and her is that you are a coward. The things you say prove your character is weak and small, and because of that, after being down and kicked you will probably be too weak to get up again. She will get up. She will survive this. Happy with yourself? We all know kicking someone when they are down is a characteristic of weakness and lack of self-esteem. This is a real town with real people. She's not a joke and neither are the rest of us.


Yes, that is exactly what I'm saying.

She is a hottie

I would marry her in a heartbeat. Good job, good looking, not afraid to assert herself. Wonder if she is single?


Are you looking at the same picture I'm looking at? Can't be.

Have you looked in a mirror

Have you looked in a mirror lately guesty? want another porkchop?

Yes and yes

I have and yes, I would like another porkchop. Do you have any coleslaw or tatersalad to go with it? I know you have some pimento cheese sandwiches but you can keep them.

Where's your picture?

Where's your picture? Having fun insulting another human being? We can't see you. We don't know who you are and where you are from. But see, here's the thing. We don't care who you are or where you are from. You evidently have some kind of curiosity about this woman and our town. Otherwise, she and the rest of Tabor City wouldn't be worth your time to comment on. We're not curious about you in the least. The only reason I've replied to your demeaning words is because you are insulting. She didn't insult you and neither did anyone else from Tabor City. You threw those first verbal punches. Mark Twain said "It is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt". You could have taken the high road, but you decided to form an opinion about a woman and a town you know very little about. She didn't solicit your opinion and neither did anyone else in Tabor City. You decided to open your mouth, and with the words you used, when nobody asked you what you thought, removed all doubt. You know what you are. And the fact that you're an idiot could have remained a secret. But you just had to open that big mouth of yours and remove all doubt if what you really are.


If you don't care, why did you respond to me?

The crème of Tabor City

The crème of Tabor City Café Society.

creme de la creme

Gramps 1945,

Your sarcasm has brightened my Columbus County day. Thanks.


Oh ... now who doesn't love a cat fight ! Somebody done somebody wrong.. and I'll bet somebody's in the doghouse about now. Those two gals will be best friends once they compare notes on his cheating ways.

And if the lady who took the scratches will give me a call I've got some balm for the wounds.

Bad Kitty

I wonder

I wonder if the victim was her hair dresser....If so it could have been self defense.


That is hilarious!!!!


Miss Connie is a really good women. This lady must have done something really bad to upset her. I have insurance with her she is the most friendly person you can meet very caring she made me feel rite at home.I don't understand she doesn't deserve how people are trying to make her look.

No matter how upset she was

No matter how upset she was with the other person involved, she did not have the right to lay her hands on the victim, especially in a violent manner.

You obviously dont have

You obviously dont have children and if you do, you obviously dont love them. She was defending her daughter against a bully...the law or her managers would do nothing about it so she did what she had to do.

Tater City

Why oh why oh why hasn't a film crew descended on Tater City for a documentary on its citizens.

Some of them are immensely entertaining: R.C. Soles and his boys, and speaking of his boys, they have been awfully quiet lately.

All Quiet on the Tater City Front.

But now the quiet has been broken.

The President of Tater City's Chamber of Commerce has made a spectacle of herself down in Myrtle Beach. They don't call Myrtle Beach "the Redneck Riviera" for nothin'.
