let's talk shit: Missbehave is Over

Photobucket
Yeah you heard the bad news! It's true Missbehave really is over, You know the story..well some of it. You grabed the magazine when ever it finally hit the stands after waiting forever, but shit it was worth it. You went to the parties & mingled with the writer's, shit was gravy until Sam (Founder of Missbehave Mag) decided to go digital. Of course all loyal fans supported it but I never liked the blog... but I was all for the magazine & they totally differed. So once the website launced I gave it a chance but shit was confusing, still I tuned in & nothing changed, It was hard to still be the Original Missbehave with none of the Original people. Now it is totally over & how everyone's talking it's not coming back! Sam going to be a new mommy and a stay at home mom looking for a new career, Lot's a readers left right along with Sarah Morrison, Lesly Arfin got fired & Sinead x Sam are fight with their keyboards on some other shit. (below)

So what ever Missbehave is gone I'm sad but I've been over it since the last issue. The real question is Who do you think was wrong here.

Samantha 
(Founder & Closer of Missbehave Magazine) 
or 
Baby Sinead 
& the everyone who got fired from Missbehave

Well I havent paid attn to their new site cause quite frankly its confusing and nothing will ever be as good as the real deal.

Idk the full story but from what I read in those links - It seems as if Sam could have handled this a little better. Her writers deserve more than that and more than just an email. I hope they can all find a better opportunity and who knows maybe even form their own site -__-

I really hate to see the magazine close though ugh

idk is it just me or does sam sound like an ass! I always wanted to work for Missbehave but it sounds like a waste of time. I know brooke nipar their photographer works for NYLON now maybe part time but she did a whole lotta photos for the last issue.

wow that totally sucks but I think they both couldve handled it better theyre adults right?? so wtf happened? sam shouldve said to the writers in person that it wasnt going to work out bc its true her kid is more important but then the other chick crossed the line with that one, but i do agree with her that now shes screwed to pay the rent so i think its both of them just not handling the situation better.

this is definitely upsetting, I felt like MissBehave helped inspire a lot of blogs that I read (like this one,correct me if I'm wrong) there was a whole 'women supporting other women in their artistic/business endeavors' vibe going on and I really liked that it was so interactive with the readers, something not found in other magazines. But now that's all done and people are taking it to the keyboards to air out things that should be discussed in offices. It really sucks that everyone was fired via mass email, I think they deserved a face to face farewell and readers deserved more than a link to Sam's other blog via Twitter about her decision. What's done is done, hopefully there are other kick ass girls out there (I'm looking at you DTY ;-D) willing to take the reins and do the damn thing.

I agree with sam even I don't know her and don't care about her life but shes talented and she made a mag blow up fast!! but at same time if she wanna be a mom and have a real life.. is good thing and who ever worked for her free no body make them it was there choice
and yeah Im sure she careless about sinhead she can make better money doing what she do porn lol
and now someone should take the mag work and not give it up maybe the crew she had can

damn! that's some messed up ish to hear! now to be honest, I do think they are both right and wrong. Sam is wrong for firing everyone through a mass email...I mean common business courtesy is to at least do the firing in person. But since she's the owner of the magazine, she can stop the presses to focus on her child, although she should refund people their money for the issues they did not receive. Now Baby Sinead, had no business airing dirty laundry on the internet, common decency would be to send an email or make a phone call and discuss the situation with Sam as an adult. But she does have a point, $100 may not be a lot to some people, but to others that is bill or partial rent money, take it from a college student, $100 is like a $1000 and you start finding ways to use it productively. So in a way they were both right and wrong. Sorry things had to end the way they ended.

I think kristina is right on the money I could see both sides.

It was fun while it lasted! :/
Shit could have been better, & I think she should have done the leg work & found someone else to hold it down. When everyone was still rooting for MissB she gave up but fuckkk it..lol She has her reasons whatever they are. idc

I respect Sam for being a mother first. not many women are strong enough to do that, it takes a lot to set aside something like a career, and in her behalf something like MISSBEHAVE. granted people who worked with her lost their jobs, but so did Sam. you can't exclude her because she did the firing, she's also without a job, when clearly she's the head of MISSBEHAVE. those who are talented will move on and find another job, and those who are not will cry about it and be bitter in comments like a certain someone.

Another good magazine is gone!! But I mean I can understand both sides..I think "Baby" Sinead is on a mad rant but I'd want my $$ too. Sometimes you have to prove a point to get what's owed, so maybe now Sam will pay her lol. Sam should have practiced better business insted of sending out a mass email, she should have given out phone calls or even met with the staff members to discuss this because its very serious. Especially in these times jobs are hard to come by! Good luck to the both of them!

I'm sad to see them go & all this on her personal blog is unnecessary! Sam should have handled it better

Oh & claw was definitely hating

@Carsi
That's a big role! there's a lot of kickass girls out there ..like yourself & we are nothing like Missbehave I just think that we have the same interest sometimes lol But Missbehave could never be replaced But there's alot us out there reaching out to the same sort of audience..Basically women in urban culture & who ever wants to live in that type of environment!

I support everyone doing there thing & putting positive shit out there we could rock to!!

So it's on everybody to put out some dope shit for us to read now!
