There was a House episode like this. Girl (former redhead Laura Prepon) wasn't a munchie, but her whole life was online. She needed an urgent surgery and despite her boyfriend asked her to not share it with her followers and just keep it between them, she did. They realised one of her decisions was based on pleasing her audience rather than herself. She pretty much finished doing that stupid shit when she realised she was about to die. Maybe same will happen to Anna, but it will be too late because no Dr. House is going to be around with a miracle solution.This is EXACTLY what's happening. Her post ignited a storm of thoughts and prayers, and she's been busily answering each one during this vital, life saving appointment.
ETA: Cynthia Nixon did play a munchie, though... what's with TV gingers being insane?
