Well hello, Loveys!
First, let me thank all of you who read, critiqued, and shared my blog. I love writing, but it’s of course more fun when there is an audience who reads and responds back! I am so grateful that you all promoted my blog and shared it with your friends! Even the people who HATED it (they didn’t actually READ it, they claim, but they HATED it) still threw me a big shout out to their buds on Twitter. Isn’t that great? So it is to the haters that I send out this blog, so please feel the love, love, love.
Look, I don’t subscribe to team anyone when it comes to housewives. I don’t love, adore, or worship any of them. I don’t hate any of them. I watch them on TV, I don’t know them. I don’t hate Teresa. I find her….fake. Kind of like I feel Vicki makes everything all about her. (perhaps I have issues with screechy people?). But at the end of the day, the drama with Teresa and her legal troubles is no joke. It’s got the Feds involved, it’s public record. I could go ahead an be a sheeple, and believe the tabloids, or I could do who an intelligent person does, and research it. Why do I find that particular situation so fascinating? Because I worked in the mortgage industry. I know the documentation, and I know what to look for, add to that an eye for signature forging, and I’m hooked. I presented the facts, with some opinions, because it’s my blog and I have them. You know what happened? People FREAKED OUT.
I learned something. There are folks out there who see people on TV and think they KNOW them. They will blindly adore them without question. They will kiss that celebrity’s ass for a small hope the celebrity will throw them a crumb of a retweet. They are creepy. Teresa has a whole following of these people. They shun any proof that she might just be guilty. They scream she is a great mom (honestly, how would they know? Are they at her house right now?). They scream her husband is awesome (do NOT bring up that little c word incident…that makes their eyes roll into their heads).
If you are a blind adorer….I will scoff. I will.
Why? Because nobody should be a blind follower to anything. Why? Because an education is a good thing. Truth is good. Facts are good. They may be unpleasant, but they are good.
The fact is, the show is a hair away from scripted. We suspend our beliefs that it is all real as it is shown for entertainment. This isn’t reality, people. It’s set up, planned situations. Do you think these people walk around all day and night mic’d? That scene when Jac and T had that big convo about the tabloids on the deck and Caro conveniently walked up fully mic’d and prepared with a drink like she was planning a sit down…you don’t think that wasn’t set up? We act like the camera crew isn’t there. They know they are being filmed. They know what days they are filming and with who. These aren’t chance meetings they have. Nobody sees that even though everything seems fine at the end of the season, and then T the reunion there’s big drama again? Ok, sure, they’ve seen some of the crap the others have said about them, but did anyone think that maybe it’s to cause enough drama to be asked back the next year? To keep fans involved so you’ll by their products the hock? I mean, could Teresa make every blog slightly less of an infomercial? She’s turning into QVFingC with her crap.
So, the Fundamentalist Huggers got PISSED that I dared write some facts about the legal issues and mortgage stuff. Blind adoration. My personal favorite was the one who claimed she found grammatical errors in what I wrote, then claimed she never read my blog, never would, and THEN proceeded to spell “write” as “wright”. Nice job. To the other woman, who practically licks her computer screen every time Teresa tweets, thanks for calling me a bitch. I’ll try not to take that too personally from a woman who has a wall of bangs bigger than the great wall of China, and who takes her fashion queues from a woman whose rise to stardom was flashing her snooch on film. I’ll debate you ladies all day.
One last note. Since we’re talking about the Housewives, I do have one apology I need to make. I do really take umbrage with one housewife. Jill Zarin, you are one crazy see you next Tuesday. I saw what you did to TEB, and I think it makes you look like a complete psychopath. You’re a public figure who CHOSE to be one, and now you’re stalking and threatening people on Twitter. Pretty big balls for someone who lives in the public eye, don’t you think? That glass house you live in better not have any skeletons in the closet Jill. If you weren’t such an irrelevant has been whose 15 minutes were up long ago, people might start peeking in those closets like you like to do to others.
Ok, that’s my rant for tonight.
Thank goodness the reunion is tomorrow and I can get those season out of my system and go. Ack to some other material.
Are any of you Orange is the New Black fans? Downton?
