Since when did all it takes to become famous amount to being trashy, slutty and possess a feature of excessive size (eg, hair, tits or mouth)?
Fortunately in New Zealand we miss out on much of the televised trash that Americans love so much. Reality TV here consists of gung-ho kiwis sharing their experiences, occasionally a Survivor rip-off and low-budget talent quests. There is a vague element of reality.
Remnants of all that is real has been stripped from the American version and what we are left with is has-beens trying to return to relevance and wanna-bes desperately trying to get some.
What I find the most sickening is that these vapid, fame-whoring slappers and the hideous, retarded douches they chase after end up with the attention they so readily seek. Why are the Snookis and Jon Gosselins of the world cluttering my daily Perez intake? I know that reading the gossip blog is slightly trashy in itself, but why fill it with this societal garbage.
Why are these people gaining notoriety for doing what normal people are scolded for?
Am I only encouraging the behaviour by mentioning them on such a high-brow outlet as my own blog?
I guess the difference is I don’t mind watching trash about people who were already rich and famous before having a show. It’s like an extended version of E! But when TV becomes trash about trash I draw the line.
My guess is no. But there they are. They’ve even made it to Debris.
