Crystal Quin and Histrionic Personality Disorder

So Crystal Quin is dressing up as Jessica Rabbit in the latest Talking About Tapes aka Hack the Movies.  I won’t be watching it.

It’s not even up at the time of me writing this but I did read an interesting comment.

– “Crystal show some dignity and leave now just walk away go home and do something better”

This sums up my view as well.  It’s just sad.  This is a person deserving of pity.  

She recently posted a picture on Instagram where she’s topless and she’s holding a couple of skulls in front of her tits.  Loads of horntards replied but I can’t read them because I don’t have an account.  I don’t think that I’m missing anything.

On Twitter, she posted a bunch of videos of her and the Screenwave Gang at that fucking wannabe ICP nerd convention.  There’s one video where she’s riding in some kind of Munstermobile with Tony from Hack the Movies and a 90 year old Butch Patrick.  Who would get in a car with a 90 year old man at the wheel?

But that’s not the point.  The point is that Crystal, as usual, is wearing almost nothing.  This is what she does.  Every outfit I see her in is showing her midriff, it’s low-cut, and/or it’s sleeveless.  

Put some clothes on.  You don’t look sexy.  You look needy, desperate, and mentally ill.

So I got to DuckDuckGo’ing.  What is the possible psychological explanation for this behaviour?  I’m no SupaPixelGirl but I think that I’ve hit on something with Histrionic Personality Disorder.

Let’s check out Wikipedia dot com.  

“People with HPD are usually high-functioning, both socially and professionally.”

Mmmmm…well, I guess that in the psychological sense “high functioning” simply means that somebody is able to live without support.  So okay.

“They usually have good social skills despite tending to use them to manipulate others into making them the center of attention”

I question Crystal Quin having good social skills but the rest is clearly accurate.

“HPD may also affect a person’s social and romantic relationships, as well as their ability to cope with losses or failures. They may seek treatment for clinical depression when romantic (or other close personal) relationships end”

I can’t comment on any of that, but Wikipedia says “citation needed” anyway.

“Individuals with HPD often fail to see their own personal situation realistically, instead dramatizing and exaggerating their difficulties.”

I can see that being true but I can’t think of any examples that I’ve observed.

“They may go through frequent job changes, as they become easily bored and may prefer withdrawing from frustration (instead of facing it).”

She does seem to have had several jobs.  And even now, what is her job?  

“Because they tend to crave novelty and excitement, they may place themselves in risky situations.”

She’s given some examples of this.  All of the “road head” that she gets up to, for example.  Or the time she was involved in some kind of sex auction.

“All of these factors may lead to greater risk of developing clinical depression”

Yeah, I assume that she’s pretty depressed.  How could you not be if this was your life?

Now we get to the rapid fire potential additional characteristics.

– “Exhibitionist behavior”

Absolutely no doubt about this.

– “Constant seeking of reassurance or approval”

Come on.  One hundred percent.

– “Excessive sensitivity to criticism or disapproval”

I think that she’s the one who left some crazy comment on here telling me to kill myself just because I mentioned her in passing.

– “Pride of own personality and unwillingness to change, viewing any change as a threat”

I can’t comment on that.

– “Inappropriately seductive appearance or behavior of a sexual nature”

A thousand times yes.

– “Using factitious somatic symptoms (of physical illness) or psychological disorders to garner attention”

I’m not aware of this.  This is definitely an Erin Plays thing but Erin doesn’t seem to meet the other characteristics.

– “Craving attention.”


– “Low tolerance for frustration or delayed gratification”

I don’t know.

– “Rapidly shifting emotional states that may appear superficial or exaggerated to others”

Maybe.  People do comment about how distracting it is when she makes faces in the videos while other people are talking.  And it’s true.  

– “Tendency to believe that relationships are more intimate than they actually are”

I don’t know but I wouldn’t be surprised.

– “Making rash decisions”


– “Blaming personal failures or disappointments on others”

She has commented more than once about how her mother doesn’t approve of her (whatever that means) and seems to be resentful.  There did seem to be an element of blaming her mother for…something.  Her unhappy life, I guess.

– “Being easily influenced by others, especially those who treat them approvingly”

Definitely.  She’s hanging out with losers like Newt and Tony from Hack the Movies.  And it’s just because they enable her with compliments on her appearance.

– “Being overly dramatic and emotional”

Yeah.  This goes back to her constantly making faces during these “reviews”.  It’s annoying.

– “Influenced by the suggestions of others”

Yeah, again, hanging out with Newt and Tony from Hack the Movies.  But moreso Newt.  She said something before about how Newt regularly says, “Here, put this on” and then she just does it.  Fucking Newt.  

And she’s all up in the ass of these ZZZ list horror actors who nobody on earth knows.  And fucking Butch Patrick.  The guy has to be 90.  Let me look this up.  He’s 68.  But still.  Who would get excited over meeting Butch Patrick?  

“Some people with histrionic traits or personality disorder change their seduction technique into a more maternal or paternal style as they age”

Interesting.  I was wondering how Crystal was possibly going to cope as she gets older and is no longer so smoking hot.  I mean…as far as I’m concerned, she’s already there, but clearly, in her mind, she disagrees.

Then they give an interesting mnemonic:

A mnemonic that can be used to remember the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder is shortened as “PRAISE ME”:

  • Provocative (or seductive) behavior
  • Relationships are considered more intimate than they actually are
  • Attention-seeking
  • Influenced easily by others or circumstances
  • Speech (style) wants to impress; lacks detail
  • Emotional lability; shallowness
  • Make-up; physical appearance is used to draw attention to self
  • Exaggerated emotions; theatrical

This is dead on.  

So let’s see what the causes are.  

Chemical, genetic, childhood trauma, possible connection with Antisocial Personality Disorder.  That doesn’t really get us anywhere.  But it’s the treatment that we’re most concerned with.

There are also six sub-types listed here.  I would put Crystal in the “theatrical” sub-type.

“Affected, mannered, put-on; postures are striking, eyecatching, graphic; markets self-appearance; is synthesized, stagy; simulates desirable/dramatic poses.”

Finally.  Treatment.  By the way, earlier in the article, it said that the average age for getting treated is 40.  Presumably, because this is around the time when their looks have faded.  Crystal can’t be far off from 40.

Interviews.  I don’t know.  Some kinds of therapy.  There doesn’t seem to be any medication.  

What’s something that would actually work?  I don’t think that trying to convince the patient that they’re not actually attractive would help.  That’s what I did in a previous article about Crystal and from the few comments that I’ve seen from her, it seemed that she just viewed me as a “hater”.  

No, I think instead of tearing a person like this down, you should build them up.  I strive to do that anyway.  But particularly with Crystal, it might help to show her the vast world that exists out there beyond her appearance.  There are millions of other things that she could take an interest in.  And people would still like her.

I mean, frankly, is there anyone who’s only hanging out with Crystal because of her appearance or because she dresses like a prostitute?  Fucking Newt and Tony from Hack the Movies?  The horntards?  Who gives a shit about these people?  

Even if it’s true that that’s the only reason that they’re hanging out with her, which I don’t think it is, it’s not worth it.  These people are just happy to hang out with any woman.  You don’t have to try.  

You think if Crystal started putting some clothes on, Tony would say, “I’m sorry.  This isn’t working for me.  I’m going to start hanging out more with Justin instead.”  Tony is just happy to be around a woman.  

Newt?  Maybe Newt would have an issue with it.  Because Newt strikes me as an asshole.  But fuck him.  The guy worked in a movie theatre as a grown man in his late 30s.  This is hardly rural Pennsylvania’s most eligible bachelor.  

That’s another thing that I don’t get about this whole situation.  Crystal has been doing this for many, many years.  She’s been doing these shit little projects of Newt’s that NOBODY watches.  These jobs can’t possibly pay anything.  Why does she do it?

Same with the “modelling”.  

All of these people.  Newt, Tony, Kieran, Justin…they’ve been doing these shit projects that nobody watches for many years.  Why?  How are they possibly supporting themselves with this stuff?  Why do they do it?  When do they think this stuff is going to become popular?  

I’m not talking about Talking About Tapes, although that too, I’m talking about the years of earlier stuff that they’ve done.  Mummy Cop.  Weird fake commercials where Crystal is wearing a bikini.  Bizarre Public Access type shows that Kieran has done.  

I don’t know.  It’s a hobby, I guess.  

Speaking of which, I think it would help if Crystal got a hobby.  Give her something to think about other than her appearance.  It could be anything.  What about photographing the covered bridges of rural Pennsylvania?  That would combine some of her interests but in a more healthy direction.  She likes photography.  She likes rural Pennsylvania.  And who doesn’t like covered bridges?  

So maybe this diagnosis will help.  I’m not a certified mental health practitioner but sometimes it’s helpful to know what’s wrong with you.  Know that you’re not alone.  And know that your behaviour isn’t healthy.  Which it isn’t.  

And Tony and Newt should be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating Crystal’s delusions about her appearance and taking advantage of her pathological need to be accepted.
