The NoHo vs. WeHo Girls: Another Fake or For Real?
Let’s say it upfront. It’s a fake and ridiculous.
On September 21st, only 8 days after the unveiling of LonelyGrl15’s identity, a video blog on YouTube popped up under the handle of NoHoGirls. Only one female appeared in the vlog, calling herself Cara Brimley who moved from Oregon to North Hollywood. Later, we meet her two roommates, Blue and Daniella, and Daniella’s boyfriend, Eddie, who occasionally is the cameraman. One day, Eddie cheats on her with Daniella’s best friend -- Leah Wagner.
Here are the facts from some pretty non-technical cyber sleuthing…
Mistake #1: YouTube Registration
Both NoHo and WeHo Girls signed up for a YouTube account 3 weeks ago. If the WeHo Girls started a blog in response to the NoHo Girls on October 5th, then the account would have been created 1 week ago, not 3 ago. Enough said.
