By The Wiz
I used to feel morally superior. I used to be above reality shows (unless they were on Bravo, which, for some reason, in my little brain, is COMPLETELY different). I thought that most people who went on reality shows were attention seeking exhibitionisits, and watching them was only encouraging their sheer idiocy.
Then a while ago I took a mental break from my life (which is currently a huge pile of steaming dung) and watched American Idol for the first time ever, and was appalled by Sanjaya, and yet intrigued by Melinda.
And now Melinda’s gone, and it actually DEPRESSED me, and the fact that this reality show affected me emotionally just pissed me off even more, and THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T WATCH REALITY SHOWS. (Unless, you know, it’s ‘Project Runway.)
Bring on the scripts! I’d rather get invested in the lives of fictional people - which somehow makes me feel better about myself. I need so much therapy.
