It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: What Would You Do For Internet Fame?
January 29, 2013 at 8:40 AM

                                    Warning: Graphic Topic! (Video NOT included)

                         Welcome to Mom To Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

                               What would you do for fifteen minutes of Internet fame?
    This past week,15 year old Giovanna Plowman posted a truly disgusting video of                       herself to You Tube, all in the hopes of gaining Internet notoriety.
                 Before you can say feminine hygenie products, the video goes viral
                                               and Giovanna is a YouTube hit.
        I have to wonder if fleeting Internet fame is worth a lifetime of being known as
                   the girl who ate the used tampon or as she is being referred to
                                               on social media,"Tampon Girl".


  1. Before today, had you heard about "Tampon Girl"?
  2. Why do you think people are willing to go to extreme lengths to gain internet 'fame' or popularity?
  3.  What is the most extreme thing you or your child have done in the name of popularity?

would like us to serve you!!

    She's a very pretty girl, she was bullied and unfortunately is now so even more. Unfortunately she's from my "hood"

    I've heard of her only on here. We've not done anything for popularity. That girl has made a fool of herself and will possibly never live it down. Sad.

    I'd love an iced caramel mocha. Thank you =)

    "Plowman also is supposedly going to be on Tosh.0 now, also. She or "she" tweeted: "OMG! SO I JUST FOUND OUT IM GOING TO BE ON TOSH.O!!! One of Daniel Tosh's agents got ahold of me and said they would love to have me and my video on their show! This is amazing. Like I never thought it would get this big. And of course I'll be going.""

    Where are this child's F-ing parents?  "Of course I'll be going!" ???  I'll say it for them...

    Oh no you won't, young lady! 

    This is an extreme parenting fail.

    Talk about regrets. She's going to hate herself when she's older.

    Are you kidding Me? 

    No, I haven't heard of this video until today.  Is it for real?  

    I have never ever done anything in the name of fame or notoriety or popularity.  Never.  Neither have any of my kids.   


    I sure could use a nice, hot cup of hot cocoa with creme, please.  

    Thank you.  :)

    I haven't heard about it until now.  I am beyond shock right now.  This is not the route to take to get famous.

    I would love to know what this girl's parents think about the whole thing.  I would be mortified.
