    She's awful, never made me laugh/chuckle/snort/smile once. I put her in the Two and a Half Men of comedy. Don't think I'll ever get it or like it.

    Luckily there are so many other great female comedians out there at the moment.

I would like her more if she was more humble and grateful then being so up herself.
    Melissa McCarthy got her big break from Gilmore Girls but rarely ever mentions the show or its creator Amy Sherman Palladino.

    Why can't we just not like someone's humour or understand their popularity? Why does it always come to this?

    I don't mind her...for me she is an "in small doses" sort of person. I think she'd drive you crazy to be around for too long...although possibly so of her public persona is a bit contrived and OTT.

    1. I don't care where the term came from
    2. Why do people feel the need to biatch about someone they don't 'get'? Why does it always come to this?

    Never let facts get in the way of a good meme, hey?

    Tall poppy syndrome exists worldwide. Margaret thatcher even used the term once. Despite a few memes about it being peculiarly Australian it's not.

    And if someone is famous then yes they will be talked about. Generally when a person wants fame they usually accept that not everyone likes them.

    I'm pretty sure Rebel Wilson doesn't lose sleep over what a few Bubhub members think of her.

    you could apply point 2 to many bub hub threads/posts.

    the fact is, we're engaging with eachother via an online forum. there needs to be something to discuss. we're not all going to sit around discussing the weather or how well the grass is growing 😂

    Yes, this is true. I suppose I mentioned it as I've seen her interviewed a few times and she talks about her previous work but never mentioned Fat Pizza, which seemed weird to me that's all.

    i also found it strange she never saw Friends!

    Anyway, at the end of the day we can't all like everyone and that's OK.

    And, yes, I love Episodes too. It's currently on ABC.
