I’m not one to ever get all Soap Boxy McRanterson, but I need to talk about something. Perhaps even yell about it a bit.
I have a SERIOUS problem with what’s happening on The Hills right now.
(Yes, I realize the absurdity of that statement. Of all the things I could be pissed about, I’m all worked up over MTV. I never claimed to be not crazy.)
Let me give you a little context…
I woke up at 10:30 this morning (I KNOW!) to find a baby still off living it up at grandma’s house and a husband gone to play flag football. So, I decided to make the most of my leeeeeeisurely morning and watch MTV. Because that’s what I do.
When I saw that The Hills was on (were on?) I thought, “Great! I’ll spend some time watching pretty girls with pretty hair and pretty clothes eat Pinkberry and fret over their internships at Elle or Vogue or whatever. It’ll be so fun and relaxing.”
Not so much.
I have to say, watching that show made me 1) embarrassed and 2) somewhat depressed. The shit that went down was ridiculous. Girls cussing each other out, fighting over dudes IN FRONT OF THE DUDES, actually whispering (sideways glances included) about other girls who were right across the table, etc. etc. oh gross. They all looked like a bunch of crazy harpies.
I realize that not all girls are like this. But I was a girl once. Sure, there was gossip and drama and general bullshit, but it never got to that level. What makes me so sad is that this amount of drama and insanity is probably going to be considered completely normal by the younger girls watching it. So sad to the point where I actually thought to myself, “Man, I’m so glad I had a boy.”
Please share your thoughts on this with me. I realize the The Hills isn’t (aren’t UGH ANNOYING) real, but it’s putting stuff out there that kind of makes my blood boil. Maybe yours, too?
