Ugh, reality shows. The very name is a lie.
Anytime you have a 6 person camera crew in the room I don't care what you say or do it WILL be different from what you would have said or done if they had not been there. So right there in my mind Reality TV is an oxymoron UNLESS it's stuff that just happened to get caught on hidden cameras (like some crime shows you see)
Then to add fuel to the fire there is no doubt in *my* mind that someone off camera is deliberately egging things on to make "good drama" for the show. (Ok say she stole your boy friend now!, Ok now you say No I didn't! Ok, now slap, c'mon SLAP her!)
So with that said, I was channel surfing yesterday and I hit "The housewives of "something". (Orange County? Yew York? Beats me and I don't care)
So they have this whiny teenager on the screen complaining about she has always been spoiled rotten and now her parents want her to behave better. First off, like *any* kid will ever admit or even realize, they have always been spoiled. Yeah, right.
But here is the part that KILLED me. She was whining to another woman who was identified with the little text under her image as uh, made up name here, "Linda Walsh- Youthologist".
YOUTHOLOGIST? She is a YOUTHOLOGIST? Oh ROFL! That kills me! just what in the hell is a freaking "YOUTHOLOGIST". Oh man, in this age of made up pseudo-scientific bullshit this one has to take the cake! This is right up there with pet massage!
Now I googled this and guess what, there is all kinds of crap on the web about how you too can become a "youthologist" Guess what though, there is no such thing as a degree in Youthology or even a Youthologist permit, licence or rating so it is totally made up BULLSHIT for rich people to waste thier money on and feel good about it.
Like many pet psychics I'll bet that some of these Youthologists actually believe they have some merit but I will stick with the cynical view that this is yet another pile of made up bull shit in a world littered with piles of made up bull shit.
So watch where you step folks! :)
