Who said it!? Me? If Oprah was in technology and she was white, then she'd probably be me. If Oprah were to choose to be reincarnated as a white, privileged, half-Jewish girl from Marin country, California, then she'd probably say that I'm her first-pick candidate. We have sooo much in common. As a child, I always knew I had a little Oprah inside me. She was the only talk show host I was allowed to watch. My parents never gave me the opportunity to watch TV, but I could watch musicals, Disney, and Oprah. I grew up very sheltered from traditional media, to the point that I didn't know if Madonna was a band or a person. My parents would go out of their way to make sure that I didn't get to watch TV or have any exposure to the media – even magazines. Perhaps this is what sparked my fascination with storytelling and media.
1. We both got our start in radio as teenagers. Oprah got her start in radio when a local black radio station, WVOL, hired her to do the news part-time. Becoming the first black news anchor at the station, she worked her senior year of high school and again her first two years of college.
2. We have both interviewed the same people, such as Richard Branson, Ashton Kutcher, and Lady Gaga.
3. We were raised in the inner city. While I didn't live in the "Golden Ghetto" – aka my neighbor, Marin City – I was right next door in the rich white-Jewish town, Tiburon. However, I spent most of my time documenting the hardship and growing up with a community, Marin City, which was named the "Golden Ghetto," as Tupac Shakur grew up there. I was close to the community and had many friends who lived in the projects. It was so cool to be growing up spending most of my time close friends with the family and community who raised Tupac, but also the music, arts, and culture inspired me to make documentary films. I was a voice of how the diverse African-American communities were being pushed out by the real estate developers trying to tear down the projects and build McMansions. My films won several awards and Stanford University offered me a scholarship to move into the dorms and study new media in the Humanities department.
I really think you need therapy and soon. While I agree on the episode where you told Ben he called his girlfriend a stalker, you have exhibited some pretty irrational behavior at most other times.
I am honestly happy your breast exam is clear. No one should have to deal with cancer.
That said, wow, unless the cameras missed something, "assault" is not what I saw. I won't call you names because that's rude. I just didn't see it. I hope you are okay. I just didn't see David hurt you. Being hurt is in the eyes of the beholder, so I am in no position to say one way or another.
If the cameras tell the entire story, I must say I'm shocked that you accused David of a crime. I just don't see it. Your behavior at the GS event was, well, a little outside the norm.
I hope you and David work it out. You both appear to be good people with a good POV. If, however, you are relying on what the cameras show to accuse David of assault, then I will have to agree to disagree. It's simply him being gentle to shut you up. I would have screamed at you to STFU.
Sarah, please get mental help. You are not well. Please watch the show to get insight on your behavior. It's truly delusional. Verbally attacking David and telling him that he assaulted you is twisted! Then you precede to define "Assault"... Cuckoo! He gently escorted you back to the sidelines where you belonged. The only thing he hurt was your tremendous ego.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed your (pathetically spent) 15 minutes, as you've just shown yourself to be an utterly narcissistic, shallow and irrelevant force in pop-culture. I would say you're just another (wannabee) reality star, but you seem to have more twisted issues in play. It's time for people like you to move aside and let the truly talented and charismatic people have their shot. The era of the imposters is over. Bye Bye Now.
I just think your wonderful Sarah! That David was so rude and ungrateful last night and you were right for calling him out on his behavior! He won't let you have a paying vodka sponsor - but he will let Hermione raffle off champagne? You filled the crowd at his event for free and he treats you like an old ex as soon as Ben and Hermione (who also benefited from your hard word and never thanked you) show up? Then David acts like a Baptist minister when you tried to include the lesbian after Hermione excluded (rather homophobic) all lesbians from her stupid little dating raffle? You were so in the right and good for you for calling David out on his BS! You are my new favorite cast member Sarah!
Sarah saw the episode where you had a ultrasound on your breast. Please go and get a needle biopsy and never never listen to a doctor when it comes to saying whether your breast lump is cancerous or not. I can't tell you how many woman I know who were misdiagnosed told it was nothing and sent out the door only to find out it was cancer.
Early detection is everything. Doctor should be shot who send any woman out the door saying any lump is benign without doing a biopsy. You don't get a do over. When it turns out their wrong it could cost you your life.
Get another doctor and have that needle biopsy.We want to belive we're are OK to a fault.
My friend demanded a biopsy and her doctor insisted she didn't need it and guess what it was cancer. Please alway insist on a needle biopsy to confirm it benign.
Sarah, the problem you're having is you're used to writing blogs to your followees. She's a "blogger" people--for crying out loud, and she's used to writing to poeple that SIGN UP to hear her thoughts, however personal. Sarha's mistake is she's used to writing to "friendly fire". She's forgetting for this show, she's writing to people who watch the show to be entertained in the reality world, meaning people that watch are folks who watch these shows to "pick" who they like, and don't like. And since Sarah's not coming across too good, writing as if she's writing to friends (as she does daily in her work) is not too smart. When you figure that out Sarah, you'll start changing your blogs here. I wish you success. And I think that you were set up with the stalker comment, what's his name's SISTER brought up the "date" and put you on the spot on purpose. I completely changed my opinion of her after that. That one was not your fault.
Sarah, one day you may realize that the world does not revolve around you and you might find, if your level of awareness improves, among other things, that: there is no justification for throwing water in the face of another human being. It is physical and it is more vile and harmful to others than the antics of your cast mates whom you feel it appropriate to judge and degrade, You did not attend Stanford as a serious student, oh- or attend at all. You will not be attending Harvard- you may have sent a proposal for some vapid project, but not an application for acceptance as a serious student. So get off your high horse about how important you are and heed the advice offered in the film 'Working Girl', "Just because you dance around the living room in your underwear does not make you Madonna. Never will." You need to look in the mirror- not at your hair and make-up, but at your soul.
Sarah, you are an eloquent, intelligent, sensitive, and smart girl. keep up the good work and good luck...
Don't let the haters get you down!
@woodland.hicks Please don't classify us as haters, that is the last thing I am. On the contrary, I like Sarah a lot for many reasons. Just think that someone needs to be honest with her regarding some of her ways and means if she's going to be successful socially.
On first reading Sarah's blog, I could only assume someone hacked into her account & wrote this as a parody on her narcissism!
But then I realized that I myself must be the non-Italian Mother Teresa, because we have soooo much in common. I mean, we both have an "e" in our names, how unusual is that? And Mother T lived in poverty in Calcutta and I live in Beverly Hills and that's near Compton so,well, the comparisons are endless...
Are you delusional? Either this is the real you and you are really sick, or it is just an act and you have completely missed the mark. Your comments are insulting and derogatory to so many people. The image you have of yourself is inconsistent with how we see you.
With that said, it has been entertaining for us ( a group of friends watched every episode together). We crack up every time you say the stupid things you say. For the next episodes, we will have a drinking game (a la Andy Cohen) and have a drink every time you spew another stupidity and dig yourself deeper into bimboland. I recon we'll be drunk halfway through your segment.
DaveinSF I didn't even think of a drinking game every time she says something stupid. Brilliant!!! But aren't you afraid of alcohol poisoning?
@twade @DaveinSF yes, definitely. And she's getting deeper with each episode. A train wreck waiting to happen. Sarah, if you are reading this (and I am sure you are given your narcissism), you need to ask people for their honest opinions about you and shut up and listen hard while they tell you. Thir opinions will be more valuable than ours on this blog - but only if you come down from your high perch. Good luck. Oh yes, you owe a few honest apologies.
Hey Sarah, I have an idea for you: Instead of working on being another Oprah Winfrey, work on being the first Sarah Austin. Maybe that will help you with your mojo with the boys.
PS there is no half Jewish. Youre in or your out!!
It seems as though you are using your opportunity to play the villain on a Bravo show as a platform to gain fame more so than to educate the general public about start ups or to promote a new project. You certainly took the villain role seriously and came off as vain and egotistical rather than respectable. Don't let the publicity go to your head. You have a lot of talent and I hope to see you use it for the better.
You think Marin City is the Ghetto you don't know the Ghetto and FYI Tupac wasn't born and raised in Marin he moved there when he was in High School. Know what you are talking about before you write. How you got into Stanford I would love to know?
That fact that you think that you have sooo much in common with Oprah says a lot about how full of yourself you really are. You are nothing like Oprah and probably never will be.
Though I don't agree with your comparison because Oprah plays in a different league than yours, I do respect your achievements. Furthermore, it's a good thing that you dropped Jay like a bad habit; hope you don't go back to him.
Get over yourself, you are not the white Oprah. Sarah, maybe if you lived in the real world outside of SV you'd be more able to relate to the average person(those who watch) and they to you, but as it stands you are nothing but a namedropping fame seeking little girl, who wants everything, but gives back nothing of value. Grow up!
