Mally's use of the term 'Bourgeois' (booshwa).

Mally, I love you and my nails love you, but please know that the term you use, bourgeois, is not complimentary. Albeit, fun to say, it means average, middle class, so-so.

Pretty sure she is saying "gorgois". It's Mally speak for gorgeous. {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

That is NOT what she says, she says "gorgois" and is a twist on the word Gorgeous. {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

You are right. I think Mally is cute and like her upbeat personality.

She uses the term "gorgois" not bourgeois; that's her term for gorgeous.

I guess she wants the bourgeois to be gorgois! LOL!

Mallu is cute, but needs to grow up. She's a Mom and needs to clean her act up just a bit. A lot of her "terms" aren't appropriate, and some are downright ridiculous, i.e. "fierce", "bullet proof", etc.

I fleetingly heard it and thought she was trying to be cutesy and beautiful in a made-up French way...{#emotions_dlg.wub} I really didn't think she was trying to say the word bourgeois. Not making any judgements here... and I don't have any children around... just sayin'. I am thinking she mis-spoke?

When you receive emails from her, it's always address as Hello Gorgois So and So.

It's her thing. She has other words she will put "ois" sound on the end.

I think Mally is using her spin on the word "bougie"

<table id="entries"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="word">Bougie</td> <td id="tools_2099369" class="tools"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td id="entry_2099369" class="text" colspan="2">
Adjective meaning extravagent, often to the point of snobbery. Usually used in relation to the conspicuous consumption of the urban upper-middle class. Dervived from "bourgeoisie" .
</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>

I'm just a gal trying to take over the world.

And here is a facebook post from Mally today:

<h6 class="uiStreamMessage" data-ft="{">Just wanted to let my gorgois Mally family know that you are always on my mind! Love You! (There were three X's after it, but this website won't let me post them?) </h6>


Jake, Awah has heard you!

Mally is quite energetic and knows how to sell; however, I no longer watch because none of her products entice me any more.

God's answer to prayer:
1 - Yes
2 - Not yet
3 - I have something better in mind

Malley is fun with an outgoing personality. She is very animated, but I don't think she is saying anything to mean harm or disrespect to anyone. People don't need to be so darn sensitive.....

I agree. She can be loud and uses way too much slang.

That's exactly what she is saying GORGOUIS!

It's just a Mally-ism! It has nothing to do with the slang term "bougie" or bourgeois. (That wouldn't make any sense at all, any way.)

Examples of how Mally uses this "suffix:"

Gorgois = gorgeois

Perfois pink (a name for one of her lip shades) = perfect pink

Mally is fine just being Mally. If you feel she's inappropriate then you can choose not to listen to her and/or purchase her products. There are many others that enjoy her and listen to her as a matter of choice. We have to learn to recognize people for who they are and just make your choice from there.

Pretty simple really.{#emotions_dlg.laugh}

The term bourgeoise does not mean average or middle class. I've always understood it to mean the "upper crust". Here is a direct quote from Wikipedia......"since the late 18th century, the bourgeoisie describes a social class "characterized by their ownership of capital, and their related culture"; hence, the personal terms bourgeois (masculine) and bourgeoise (feminine) culturally identify the man or woman who is a member of the wealthiest social class in capitalist societies."

Whether she intended disrespect or not isn't the point. I don't think it's "so darn sensitive" to expect a professional business woman to conduct herself in a professional manner. It's one thing if she talks like that in her private life, but when she is appealing to the masses to purchase her products, that's a different story. She reduces herself to a classless lowlife when she addresses people in vulgar terms like that, especially someone she doesn't know. If it was said over public airwaves, it would have probably been an FCC violation.

OK, come on! Stuff happens. Did the world come to a screeching hault? Did anyone get physicall hurt because they heard it?

I am very professional at my job. Am I on TV? Nope, but I have been on camera for video teleconferencing meetings every morning for several years that involved some important people. Once in awhile something comes out that the person realizes was an "oops" . You can't take it back. It's said, you can't UNsay it. It's done. It's happens to the absolute most professional person out there. That does NOT make them classless or a lowlife. If the person continues to keep saying it, then yes, something should be said to them. But a one time thing? Let it go!

Oh come on now. Ridiculous? Really? Fierce is a "term" used frequently in the fashion industry. It is NOT ridiculous in any way. Why can't people just accept those who are different? Not everyone needs to be stuffy and boring.

Oh trust me, I detest that term! Really, really hate it and pity the person who ever called me that. And I'm offended a lot of stuff (just ask my SO - LOL). So I totally get where you are coming from, and I'm not trying to submiss your dislike. However, I'm trying lately to just let stuff go that doesn't really impact me directly. It's tough, but I'm slowly getting there.

Mally gets excited, and I think for her, doing her shows is like being with girlfriends. And I'm sure she has a good relationship with many of the hosts, models and people behind the scenes. When you get excited and you're with friends and comfortable stuff can come out. I watch her quite often and I have not heard her use the term Don't know if it was a one time thing, or it was said more than once.

I think she has a good heart and is a kind person. So I can cut her some slack.

If it really bothers you, go to her website and send an email. Seriously. Let them know how you feel. They're very nice there. Maybe you won't be the only one.
