    YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK TWICE AT HAVING KYRA PHILLIPS GET YOUR MESSAGE OUT.

    (I RAN ANOTHER FAN BASED FACEBOOK PAGE CALLED “KYRA PHILLIPS NATION (A TRIBUTE PAGE TO KYRA PHILLIPS)” it had over 500 friends. Page was created in October 2010. I went to great lengths in the title and postings to let everyone know I was just a Fan and not Kyra Phillips.

    I am upset by the way they talked about me.

    HOW KYRA Phillips, JENNIFER WESTHOVEN AND CNN TREAT THERE DISABLED LOYAL VIEWERS. BELITTLE ME AND TALK TRASH ABOUT ME HAVING BEEN HOSPITALIZED FOR DEPRESSION. ALL BECAUSE I DID NOT LIKE JENNIFER WESTHOVENS POST ON “KYRA PHILLPS NATION TRIBUTE PAGE. FIRST OFF, ON ANOTHER UNOFICIAL KYRA PHILLIPS PAGE ON FACEBOOK, KYRA HANDLED IT VERY PROFESSIONAL AND MADE A POST FROM HER OFFICIAL PAGE. ON MINE THEY ACTED VERY POORLY, AND MAKES ME QUESTION THERE CHARACTER

    Thanks – I was considering forwarding to security later today.

    My part: I posted something short and seemingly innocuous like: this isn’t kyras page.

    It sounds like from some of his ramblings that he was asked to take the page down, but I have no knowledge of any other action beyond my original comment

    for christal: he also mentioned something about hospitalization?? Yikes

    THIS WAS ACTUAL POST FROM JENNIFER WESTHOVEN “KYRA PHILLIPS NATION (A TRIBUTE PAGE TO KYRA PHILLIPS)” FACEBOOK PAGE:

    “The real Kyra asked me to post here that this is a fan page — just so you know, not the real Kyra. ”

    FUNNY PART IS UNTIL RECENTLY JENNIFER WAS A FRIEND OF THAT PAGE. DOES JENNIFER KNOW HOW TO READ?

    Ok, this is the guy who was doing a “tribute” page for me for years…I had no idea, now I think he is crazy.

    Did someone upset him??

    What is going on??
