I understand that today's television has been slowly declining in entertainment value. Everyone may not agree with me but hey, it's my blog, surf the web for a new one if you don't like it. Everything from The Hills and 16 and Pregnant on MTV to Keeping Up With The Kardashians on E! has now been the television America is being subjected to. What makes this concept of "entertainment" even worse is that these "entertainers" are being looked at as "celebrities". It used to be that celebrities were being known as individuals with a talent that they used to get into the limelight. For example, U2 is known as one of the greatest recording artists to ever take the stage. They are known around the world for their talent and accomplishments. Then you have Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt from The Hills. They are famous for...but then they...ok they live in L.A. and Heidi got plastic surgery. That is it.
Now, these "celebrities" have been doing this for long enough that there really is no stopping it. They have already established themselves as a mainstay in pop culture that all we can do now is see what kind of shenanigan comes up in the tabloids next. One thing I cannot let go is the new reality show "Basketball Wives" on VH-1. Talk about a waste of 30 minutes. I saw one episode this past weekend and I actually started laughing with how retarded the show's concept was. For those who have not seen this train wreck yet, all it consists of is a bunch of skanks who all either dated, are engaged, or were married to an NBA or former NBA player. None of them really like eachother but because they all live in Miami and all date ballers, they think they should all be friends. All they do is talk about how they think their boyfriends, husbands, or fiances are all cheating on them. What's funny is that they speculate all these other skanks in South Beach are sleeping with their significant other (which they probably are), then get mad at these hoochies. It's not the NBA Player's fault, right?. It's the hoochie who is trying to get with him, of course. These "Basketball Wives" think all these other women in South Beach are all gold diggers. They think the only reason their husbands, boyfriends, or fiances are being approached is because these women want money. Are we sure these chicks aren't Rocket Scientists. And I bet all these women will tell you they fell in love with their significant other because of their charming personality. Right, that's what I look for in a girl, too. : /
The reason why this show cracks me up so much is because all it is, is one big contradiction. Half of the women who "star" in this show aren't even with their significant other anymore. That's the first indication that they were truly "in love" with these guys to begin with. They all think they're better than the skankies that are still going after these ball players because they have "careers". One chick is a "High End Real Estate Agent". What the fuck does that mean? All this bimbo did was follow around an actual real estate agent and at the end of the tour added "I think you guys will be living here together for a long time.". Yeah? Is that until you try and keep that ball player's ankles warm with his Nike basketball shorts?
I really shouldn't knock these hood rat hood rat hoochie mamas. They're just trying to make an honest living. What's funny is that's probably what they were saying before they met their ex-Ball Player at Minxxx or whatever scrip club they were pimping just so they could buy little Day-Day a new pair of Lebron's.
