“Little people are mean, evil, vicious ankle-biters. You’re Gremlina!" And with those words from director Matt Cimber (Jayne Mansfield's last husband) after having been flipped off and an expletive hurled his way for insulting her friend and audition mate, Sandy Manely joined the Season 3 of the hit 80s show G.L.O.W. The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Week after week Gremlina led her Daisy to the ring to battle the likes of The Cheerleaders, The Farmer's Daughters and an encounter with Mountain Fiji that ended in a spanking that Gremmy claims still stings to this day. After G.L.O.W. ended, Manley took a hiatus from the ring for a number of years to pursue a career as an accountant before returning to Virginia based Vanguard Championship Wrestling acting as both Manager and Commissioner. Other screen credits include Paranormal After Party and Femme d'Action.

Victims and Villains is a non-profit organization that creates content through podcasts and film reviews to educate and engage individuals on mental health awareness and suicide prevention through pop culture. All of their content is made with the intent to connect individuals to the right mental health resources, break stigma surrounding mental health and remind you of your value as a human being.
I met them a few years back when I volunteered with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and they had a booth set up. I think it's great that GWE aren't the only ones out there promoting mental health in the geek community...and I am a firm believer that we're all stronger when we work together...so they'll be doing a panel, and they'll have a table so you can stop by and chat with them anytime.
