Okay, I didn't know what I wanted to write about this morning, and I still don't know where this will go, but I heard a blurb on the radio this morning about a new "reality" show coming to Bravo. I stopped what I was doing because I wasn't sure I heard what I heard. So, I shook the cobwebs out of my head, and then googled the phrase I thought I heard, but was hoping I was wrong. I wasn't wrong. One of the reality "stars," in describing herself, said "I don't like ants and I don't like ugly people." Seriously??!! But, honest. She said this. And "she" isn't a little 13 year old girl who can kind of be forgiven for such stupid remarks because her brain is not fully formed. This is a 33 year old woman with a fully formed brain. Well, after that remark, I guess the brain thing is debatable. She is 33 and supported by her daddy. Her REAL, very rich daddy, not her sugar daddy.
So, I can kind of understand the ants thing. I don't like ants, either. But . . . ugly people? She doesn't like ugly people?! I wonder how she judges ugly vs. not ugly. Warts on the nose? No $200 hair cut? Levis instead of whatever brand rich people wear? No plastic surgery to correct those unsightly freckles? I don't know . I have freckles, and I like them. They're kind of cute and make me look younger. Maybe just the fact that I don't have a zillion dollars and I actually work for a living would make me ugly in her eyes. Just like beauty comes from within, I think ugly comes from within too. First impression?? -- 33-year-old-little-rich-girl-being-supported-by-her-daddy is U.G.L.Y. I'm glad I have my reality and not spoiled-rich-girl's "reality". Some day "reality" is going to smack 33-year-old-rich-girl right in her surgically enhanced nose.
