Smashing Pumpkins’ D’arcy Calls James Iha ‘Whiny Little Bitch’s Bitch’ & Reacts To Jimmy Chamberlin Diss


Original Smashing Pumpkins bassist D’arcy Wretzky has commented on Alternative Nation’s new article where former Marilyn Manson keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy (aka Pogo) said Billy Corgan ‘fucked her’ out of The Smashing Pumpkins reunion. She also called James Iha the ‘whiny little bitch’s bitch.’


Thank you for your support & kind words Pogo!

– and right back atcha!

i remember how ‘fans’ used to get awfully confused when they met any of you and discovered that y’all were just “nice people”!

I know i’ve said it before, but it definitely deserves repeating at least once every couple decades or so:

You guys were always KIND?!!! ??, smart, funny, TALENTED, and a hell of a lot of fun!!! (and also helped to make much of that nightmare we shared so much more bearable)

There’s just one thing that you left out tho:

What do you call a ‘whiney little bitch’s bitch?’



She also commented on a new Alternative Nation article where Jimmy Chamberlin credited Billy Corgan for playing bass on “I Am One.”

D’arcy commented:

“12 years

12 years i just sat there and looked ‘cute’.

all i did.”

She commented as well on an Alternative Nation article where Billy Corgan is quoted as calling her recent comments ‘horrifying’ and claiming the ‘bridge is burned forever’ with her. Fans in the comments were criticizing Billy Corgan’s personality, calling him manipulative and narcissistic, while saying the worst criticisms of D’arcy over the years was that she did drugs. D’arcy then discussed her 1999 firing from the band.

D’arcy commented:

“so true.

was never even offered the option of rehab.

Just booted before 1/2 of my allotted time-off to get well was over.

Billy already had Mellissa lined up.”

A fan named Corndog commented asking D’arcy, “Would you ever consider playing again with someone else other than the Pumpkins?”

D’arcy answered, “absolutely. I wanted to for many years but couldn’t get a single peer to call me back because of all billy’s public slandering of me.”

Corndog responded, “That’s a real shame. I’ve never met the guy but he really does seem like an insufferable little prick. I hope that you’re otherwise happy and well:)”

D’arcy said, “I’m great! Thank you! (cept for this stupid flu?) i hope you & yours are well too!”
