The following was taken directly from the mandymoore.com message boards in a closed thread. Apparently, Mandy Moore become friends with someone on the boards and started talking to him over AIM and the telephone. They got in a fight and he posted juicy pieces of gossip from their AIM conversations into the message board, causing quite the stir!
The following was posted:
(Mandy): found out some news about Shane today
RuNvS mm: ooh, do tell ::hits record and calls Star Magazine::
RuNvS mm: are you call-able right now? or are you phone sick?
(Mandy): apparently at his little rendezvous with Wilmer….he lied and told Wilmer that i initiated everything during the movie and that it was my fault. what a chickensh**. he kissed me. he told me he liked me. I was very trepidatious to say anything back. it became mutual eventually or rather openly mutual but still….what an ass
(Mandy): I hate liars. especially those who do so to save their punk-rockstar wannabe asses lol
RuNvS mm: wow…seriously… fu** him.
(Mandy): yeah right. no more hanging with him.
Many responses to this post were added, angry Mandy fans were about ready to cyber kick the behinds of the perps behind this. In response, Mandy wrote:
I am not letting myself get upset over this. but just know…there are always 2 sides to every story. I don’t want to get into it because quite frankly–it isn’t anyone’s business but our own. It is a shame that after this matter was handled with maturity …it all comes down to this. sure, I am hurt. But making me out to be the person I really am or not…. arg. I know who I am. I have a wonderful family, am proud of the person I am and who I am becoming and believe I was raised right. Right enough to never do this to my worst enemy and right enough to never just get rid of a friend over some petty disagreement. You see signs of good and bad in people and choose to be friends with people you admire and want to be more like in a way. Obviously my point is made.
Note: There seems to be enough people commenting on her boards for me to believe Mandy did respond to this and it sounds like something that did happen, but the postings were deleted.
