  • Just a reminder to any new visitors, that Simone scammed her fans by selling her PR, clothes etc, saying profits were being donated to the women's refuge, and keeping the money for herself over the years. She only made any donations AFTER she had been called out by Makaia Carr and Pebbles Hooper. She took them to court for bullying but in the end the truth came out.

    She's a pathological liar.

    Influencer Simone Anderson publicly denies allegations she did not make donations to charity - NZ Herald
    Influencer says she's donated to Women's Refuge and other charities and has the receipts.

    Simone wrote that on 13th June 2020? She says she had donated previously! Yes, Simone, you had donated previously!! A week prior to making that statement Simone donated to multiple charities, in her maiden name Pretscherer. It’s there in black and white in Makaia Carr’s legal statement, signed off by Simone’s lawyers.
    It is shocking how Simone tried to fool everyone with this statement. There were even news articles about it, saying that, yes, she had donated previously, but everyone missed it because the donations were made in her legal name of Pretscherer!!

    Simone did not donate until called out.
    Once called out she then quickly donated approximately $22,000 in total to several charities.

    She then released press statements or did interviews stating,
    "Last week, the communications manager for Women's Refuge made a statement to the press that no donations had been received from Simone Anderson.
    "This discrepancy was made due to the fact that all charitable donations I make are under my legal name of Pretscherer; which is the name on my birth certificate, passport and bank account.

    "I have made donations to Women's Refuge, among other charities, and have receipts."

    What she doesn’t say is that there were no donations until June 2020, when she was caught out.

    Remember also that Simone was being given thousands and thousands of dollars of product each week during the four years her facebook secondhand page was operating. She was selling all those items and pocketing the money when she said she was donating it. Thousands and thousands of dollars worth. Each week. Approx $260000+ according to some sources that added up sales in the FB group and TM account before Simone deleted them.

    After writing this it came to our notice that Simone was telling businesses that the above was not the full story: she claimed and possibly continues to claim that she had made substantial donations prior to June 2020, but to a different charity (not Women’s Refuge). This was debunked by the charity concerned. Remember, always refer to Makaia Carr’s statement that she released on December 15, 2020. This unequivocally states that there were no donations before June 2020, and was signed by Simone’s legal team.

    Simone Martha Forsyth, nee Pretscherer AKA Anderson
    Pretscherer = her maiden name, mum’s surname.
    Anderson = one of her middle names, her dad's surname. Uses it as her social media name/stage name.

    Alter Egos
    Tryhards - One of her first tattle personas, joined in the early days before Simone had her own thread in the NZ Influencers chat and went hard trying to defend Simone....and instantly got called out for it, and subsequently evaporated.
    Tagitbaby - her tattle persona who famously called us all thick cunts, and desperate house wives who needed c**k
    Taptotidy - another tattle persona
    Theotherman - another tattle persona that joined in 2023 to make the claim that he was Trent's male lover and wanted advice on how he should spill the tea about their affair...full lolz Simone.

    Simone spends more time on Tattle than any of us (despite claiming she’s “checked it for laughs with friends at parties to read out the comments less than a handful of times”)

    Had a gastric sleeve in 2014 but now credits her weight loss to her lifestyle change.

    Says she has no time to fluff around since having Asher, but spends her weeks going to numerous appointments including hair, nails, massages. Says she only has a night out once a month but she has a different calendar than the rest of us as she is out more evenings than not.

    Simone fake tans every Wednesday or Thursday night and changes her sheets and “resets” her house every Friday. Simone loves doing laundry 3274 times a day and only ever has 5-6 items in each load.

    Tattle Dictionary

    Tattle nicknames
    Simon, Simo, DimSim (from her own attempted spelling of Dim Sum, too perfect really), Scamone, Thick Cunt (comes from the time a user called tagitbaby came on her thread and defended her and called us all thick cunts, fat housewives with no lives etc. Strongly believed to be Simone herself)

    Significant events/controversies
    Primarily the women's refuge scam. TL;DR: sold clothing that was gifted to her by businesses and claimed the proceeds were being donated to Women’s Refuge. No donations were made prior to Simone being publicly called out in 2020. Donations total around $22k however it is estimated she made over $200k from the sale of these clothes.

    Many breaches of advertising standards authority guidelines about disclosing ads, responsible promotion of alcohol, and retinol while pregnant.

    Investigated by ASA for promoting and using Nivea retinol product while pregnant. complaint upheld by ASA, but posts were deleted with no apology or warnings issued.

    Shared a video announcing her current Pregnancy to Trent however this video is confirmed to be (sadly) from a loss - NOT THE CURRENT PREGNANCY

    Had a partnership with Find Fair for an ethical online search tool, despite being the least ethical person in the country.

    Buys Instagram bots several times a month.

    Started close friends to showcase her true, authentic self - however this is code for exploiting her child. No respect for her child’s privacy including filming him doing his business to 300k+ followers bots.

    Complaints over promotion of protein powder, vitamins during pregnancy

    Promoting cord blood banking for the second time - and then actively deleted all comments that raised questions about its legitimacy.

    Thanks to @trentstillworksfromhome for deep diving into Simone's extensive bestie list:

    As promised, a full round-up of everyone Simone has claimed is her "bestie" or "best friend".

    One major trend to notice is that Simone almost cannot attend a wedding without claiming that she is "so privileged to watch her best friends marry their best friends" or similar. At this point, she's claimed the married couple as her "best friends" so many times, that the few weddings she's attended without stating that they are her best friends really stand out, and you have to wonder what those people did wrong to not be elevated to Bestie status for the day at least.
