This is the kind of things the public is interested in; not Britney's gas fillups.

I did not realize that was her on Deadwood! She did a great job on there. I loved that c*cksucker! of a show. Swiggen was my fav by a long shot.

I am a huge Deadwood fan, and Geri Jewel was wonderful in her role as a "gimp" employed in a brothel, cleaning everything from the whores' rooms to bloodstains after a gun fight. She was sweet and funny in a part that could have simply been a stereotypical portrayl of a handicapped woman. GREAT WORK!!

Have you ever seen her comedy? It is awful, second grade jokes, that the audience
bursts out over-laughing because she has a disability. Really embarrassing!
