Is Sharon Bialek Too Pretty To Be Credible?

sharon bialekEveryone pities a victim -- that is, unless the victim is a hottie. And then she's either making it up or she was asking for it. Because didn't you know? Sexual harassment case + long, flowing blond hair = slick gold-digger. For example, Sharon Bialek, batting those baby blue eyes and claiming Herman stuck his hand up her skirt -- what's she really up to?

We have New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser to thank for keeping this story classy. This morning she pounced on Sharon, making fun of her "heavily-painted face" and carping that she had "her bleached-blond hair set in waves" just for her press conference. Victim of sexual harassment? Mrowr, fffttt fffttt! If you ask Peyser she's just "a smooth operator living beyond her means."

Peyer is riffing on a press release Team Cain sent out painting Sharon as a woman with a "long and troubled history, from the courts to personal finances." So let me get this straight. If you're having trouble paying your bills -- and you happen to have bleached-blond hair set in waves and you wear makeup -- you are obviously exploiting someone in order to pay for your Kardashian-like lifestyle, right? Fabricate a sexual harassment case in order to keep your closet stocked with Chico out fits and fuschia lipstick. That's her MO?

I'm so disappointed when women attack each other like this. And I think it's especially ugly when the name of the game is pick on the pretty girl. This game doesn't make anyone look good. We're above this, ladies. If you are skeptical of Bialek's claims because of the 14-year time lapse that's one thing. But why do we have to start yanking out each other's hair extensions?

By the way, Sharon Bialek's money troubles are real -- but they come from a tragic custody battle and from the exorbitant medical bills that followed her mother's death. You know, the same kind of health care financial fiasco we're all just a biopsy away from suffering ourselves. Nothing glamorous or gold-digging about that.

Do you think Sharon Bialek's good looks work against her or do you think that's irrelevant?

This is the dumbest sentiment I've ever heard. Seriously. I am an attractive person and I'm not saying that in a boasting way, but I work hard to feel good about the way I look and I get alot of attention from men. At times, this attention can be abrasive. While it is important to me to "put my best face forward," I don't specifically do it to "pick people up" or attract the opposite sex and I certainly don't do it to be sexually harassed or assaulted. So what is the rationale behind the statement that someone attractive can't be assaulted? People only choose UGLY victims? Ridiculous. Anyone that perpetuates this statement is looking for attention.

No, she is not too pretty to be credible. In fact, she's not that attractive at all.  And as far as you being disappointed in women attacking other women, did you feel the same way when all the Stir bloggers continuously attacked Sarah Palin? My guess is a big fat NO!

I agree with zandhmom2 100%

I'm not sure that Miss Adriana has her goggles on tightly enough. This woman is only a salon set away from frumpy hausfrau, first of all. Second, when Clinton's indiscretions came to light, aaaallll the women were said to be ugly or fat, except for Ginnifer Flowers, who must be crazy, right? But when an accuser aims a painted fingernail at a conservative, she's gorgeous, well-spoken, savvy, and all HER indiscretions are UNDERSTANDABLE, and merely point to her humanity. GMAB! Third, see above for what zandhmom2 said.

Burn.

Bialek's fiancee said that she didn't mention a word about the harassment until right before she met with Gloria Allred. Now a recent months old pic has surfaced in which Bialek is photographed with Cain smiling. For some odd reason, Allred kept bringing up that Bialek is a 'registered Republican', as if that's supposed to add credibility to her story. She lived in the same building as Obama chief of staff David Axelrod and lied about how well she knew him. Something smells fishy. But don't let any of that stop you from focusing on comments about her caked-on makeup, because that's the REAL story here, right?

I think calling her a "hottie" is being extremely generous, but that's not really the point, is it? It's really about trying to make her seem like a she has a valid complaint, even though she waited almost 15 years to say anything, even though she was a "victim" of harrassment a second time later on, even though she's got questionable (at best) personal history regarding fiscal responsibility and monetary motivation.  Or making it seem like Allred doesn't have an agenda by putting a "victim" in the public eye. Even though the victim has indicated that she would accept payment for telling her story.


Yeah, it's not really about her looks at all.

Attacking this woman doesn't make a valid point. Just because some might consider her "pretty" or she has financial problems shouldn't affect her credibility. That said, this woman cannot honestly expect to bring accusations with no evidence (unfairly) then expect to be treated fairly in return.

Many men find her sexy, including myself, but I understand how women may not see her the same way. Sexy is a bit different than beautiful. That said, her actions do appear political in motive.

White ppl (white women in particular) need to get over being so vain, she's average at best and i say that cause it's true and no other reason, i get so tired of white ppl throwing that in just like with casey anthony and the teacher that was having sex with her students, who are they hot too? Other white people i guess cause i just don't see it and i'm tired of ppl making it an issue, maybe for her age she doesn't look so bad but then that's a blessing because "ya'll" look old at any given age, look at all the things you have to do in order to just look your age, get over yourselves, pfffft get over yourselves and do it in a hurry....
