‘Dirty John’ on Bravo: Connie Britton Slammed For Acting Choices, Praised for Hair

Dirty John main character Debra Newell (Connie Britton) is the real-life founder of Ambrosia Interior Design. After the award-winning interior designer who is Debra Newell fell for ‘Dirty John’ Meehan (Eric Bana), Newell’s life was turned upside-down. The result was a popular podcast that chronicled the drama. Now the rich single mother from Orange County is gaining attention from the Los Angeles Times podcast-turned-Bravo TV series, but so is four-time Emmy award-nominated Connie. With the premiere of Dirty John comes plenty of social media opinions about the stars of the series.

Dirty John premiere brings dirty tweets

Connie Britton has her share of fans across the world wide web, filling her Twitter reply section with compliments. Folks who love Connie are happy to see her grace the small screen again. Others, however, are making their displeasure known. “I literally don’t understand how Connie Britton is still working. She literally has the acting ability of a foam board,” wrote one detractor. Others wonder aloud if Britton will leave another scripted series, like Britton left Ryan Murphy’s 9-1-1 after only one season.

Connie was also a veteran star of the hit shows Nashville and Friday Night Lights, which gave Britton plenty more followers. Now fans and enemies are either praising or criticizing the star for her new role in Dirty John. “Connie Britton and her shiny, perfect hair makes this perfect! I can’t wait to watch,” wrote one. “Can Connie Britton stop being a thing? Jeez. Insufferable in 911, now this,” slammed another. As for Eric Bana, most viewers can’t wait to watch the actor take his turn as the dangerous and unkempt John, wooing Britton’s brilliant but lonely creative character.

Connie Britton slammed for age, loved for hair

With Dirty John bringing Britton to the forefront once more, certain opponents are unfairly dissing Connie for her age. However, the 51-year-old Britton is only one year younger than her co-star, the 50-year-old Bana. “No thanks Connie Britton always looks 25 years older than her co-stars. Not a fan,” read one tweet. On the flip side, Britton’s fans are effusively praising her hair for its shiny texture and plush, wavy thickness. “Gwyneth Paltrow wants Connie Britton’s hair texture & she’ll never get it. LAUGH WITH ME,” quipped on Twitter fan.

Indeed, Connie’s lush hair takes center stage as she takes on the role of naive Debra Newell, who misses all the signs about Meehan to go full speed ahead to the altar. “Dirty John” was a handsome man who caught Debra’s eye, calling himself a successful doctor who loved the woman he met online. Debra’s kids would help her uncover the truth about John, after she takes the plunge and marries the mysterious man.

The podcast comes to life

When the podcast “Dirty John” grabbed the attention of millions of listeners, it was destined to become a TV show. Meehan’s dirty but good-looking persona is a cautionary tale for every woman, including those like Debra Newell, who may be very successful in their careers but not so lucky in love.

Premiering on Bravo on Sunday, November 25, at 9 p.m. Central / 10 p.m. ET, “Dirty John” has caused the Interwebs to become abuzz about the story. With the toxic and dangerous ingredients of love, money, lying, and deception, The Bravo show already premiered on YouTube. However, with the Bravo premiere set for Sunday, fans and enemies alike are getting their Twitter fingers ready. A limited series similar to The Sinner, Dirty John contains eight episodes in the first season, according to IMDB. Meanwhile, there is also room for additional episodes in the second season of the series.
