The Last Commie Standing — Rebecca Schoenkopf Leaves The OC Weekly

commiegirl.jpgWe were completely blindsided by this, we must admit. Rebecca Schoenkopf, one of the roughly eight good things about Orange County (and the only one with an eye patch) abruptly announced her resignation from her perch as seer-of-all-things-strange at the OC Weekly.

The woman who once described in detail her uncle’s vagina (you didn’t read that wrong), brought a level of dirty/gross/hysterical/wonderful wit to the Weekly. We have no idea why she left or where she’s going.

Ever the cryptic little c**t, she gives her fans only this:

Today I turned in my two weeks’ notice at the OC Weekly.
I was escorted from the premises an hour later.

Love you all,
Beccalou
