With the infiltration of “Reality” TV and just the overall dumbing down of TV in general, I haven’t been fond of the idiot box in a long time. Shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire have me hooked, … Continue reading →
My mother is a self-proclaimed Dancing With The Stars junky. She doesn’t allow talking during the show. No phone calls. Don’t ask her for a damn thing. You better not walk in the house with a gunshot wound. If you die in the middle of the den, your body better not fall in front of the tv. Since I’ve been on a very long extended stay back home I’ve been forced to watch this horrid show. Yeah, I said it. HORRID. But what’s even more horrid than the show is that damn Bristol Palin. I think I’ve always been mature enough to give credit when it’s due but no one can tell me this girl is not still on JUST because of her ding-bat mother. This girl CAN NOT dance. Period. She’s horrible. Just look at the picture above. She can’t even pose good. But as I look further into the shows demographics, my mother is not the demographic. It’s made up of majority tea-baggers.. I mean tea partyers. *shrugs*
I have to call out double standards when I see/hear them. The media is acting like Tiger Woods has committed the most heinous crime of the century, which I don’t get. Infidelity is not new. It’s ESPECIALLY not new when it comes to athletes and it’s damn sure not new when it comes to a BILLIONAIRE athlete. Do I feel bad for Mrs. Woods? No, not at all. 1) because she knew about most of these chicks prior to that accident and she decided to stay with him and 2) this is what she signed up for. Yes, I said. This is what she signed up for. Unfortunately because of groupie bitches, the amount of opportunity an athlete has to cheat is ridiculous. Everybody knows that. It comes with the territory. But anyways, that’s a whole other blog in itself. Back to the double standard. The media is calling Tiger a monster, a sex addict, scumbag. You name it, they’ve said it. Hollywood “stars” have had their hand in this media madness by having an opinion. So I ask you this. Why is Tiger being crucified but Hugh Hefner’s behavior is glorified? And no, the ‘behavior’ is not different.
The media’s angle about Tiger has always been about morals, about a possible “problem” or “sex addiction” about how wrong he is for having all these “transgressions”. It’s been about why men cheat. It’s been about how horrible of a man he is. Hugh has 20 hoes living with him. Hugh has married one if not more of his hoes and has kept many on the side. Hugh banging women his great granddaughters age. For those of you say it’s different, why? Because all the women know about each other? PLEASE! Go walk into traffic. Hugh is a glorified pimp. He takes in young hoes to use for a profit. Just because he’s pimping them on the cover of Playboy vs. Hollywood Blvd, means he’s somehow not any different from Bishop Magic Don Juan?If it’s about the amount of women Tiger has ALLEGEDLY been with then how is he any different from Hugh Hefner? Hugh has multiple partners. Hugh has cheated on his wife. Hugh is or has been married while having these multiple partners in and out his mansion. We can go back and forth about the business aspect of Hefner. But the specific issue of morality, monogamy, multiple partners, infidelity can’t be argued. Some of the same reporters, Hollywood stars, and some of you readers who have had an opinion on Tiger have mingled, partied, broke bread or glorified Hugh for his misogynist ways. That behavior is looked at as OK by the media because it’s business, it’s the industry Hef is in but Tiger cheating on his wife with 14 ALLEGED females is monstrous. That’s hypocritical. Tiger hasn’t even confirmed all of these women and he’s already a ‘sex addict’ but we know for a fact that Hugh has had hundreds of women be his ‘lady’ and he’s a legend? GIVE ME A F*CKING BREAK!
We all saw the 1987 thriller where Michael Douglas enjoys the time away from his loyal wife to spend 2 days with a crazy ass, Glen Close. In 1987 I wasn’t allowed to watch this movie but when I finally became of age, I couldn’t help to think what dummy would cheat after seeing that. That bish was crazy!
Of course cheating never ended.
But with the horrible murder of Steve McNair and now the mess unfolding with Steve Phillips at ESPN, I wonder if the young crazy chick is the new thing? If you haven’t heard already, Mr. Phillips, an analyst for ESPN, a 50 SOMETHING year-old analyst for ESPN, cheated on his wife with a 22 year-old production assistant for a very VERY brief period over the summer. He ended the affair and apparently she wasn’t having it because she went all “Fatal Attraction” on Steve. Well not completely Fatal Attraction. There were no boiling pet rabbits or sliced wrists… that we know of. But she was damn close to it. This basket-case “friended” his sons on Facebook by pretending to be a classmate to muscle family information from them, harassed Phillips and one day the wife comes home to see the psycho leaving this wonderfully written letter on the door http://www.nypost.com/r/nypost/2009/10/21/news/media/lettermistresstowifea.pdf .
Phillips claims he only slept with her 3 times and after he broke it off she became obsessive and delusional. Let this be a lesson to all men. Keep the wee-wee in your damn pants! Oh and Steve, dude if you were gonna cheat, at least CHEAT UP! Have yall seen this chick? LOL! I know I know.. that was a low blow but damn.
CBS will benefit WONDERFULLY from the David Letterman scandal. Just as we stretch into the fall season Mr. Letterman uses his show to tell America that he had sex with female co-workers. NICE! Of course the ratings went through the roof that night.
Let’s rewind a few days. Accused extortionist Robert Halderman demands that Letterman gives him $2 million in order for him to be quiet about his affairs. This story is funny that it’s almost unbelievable because Letterman is known for his merciless attacks on people who have been caught in their sexual trangressions and Halderman is so stupid that he asks for a CHECK and actually goes to the bank to cash it! What about asking for cash dummy? But what’s even more funny is that Halderman’s current girlfriend is one of the ladies Letterman has had an affair with. Did he forget that his girl had been passed around the office?
But back to the point. The night Letterman announced his affairs, the audience exploded in applause and his ratings went up 40% from the previous week. For all of you who do not believe that all publicity is good publicity, you are sadly mistaken. CBS is coming out like a fat cat! *smh*
