Girls Next Door


Talk about Parents Behaving Badly, I was watching The Girl’s Next Door, the reality show about Hugh Hephner’s harem. and I saw a very bad mother.

The girls were signing autographs and this woman had brought her two daughters, one about six-years-old and the other maybe 11 or 12. The three of them were so excited to meet their favorite TV personalities. The six-year-old was like, “Kendra is my favorite!” The nine-year-old was totally into Bridget and the mother enjoyed Holly.

What the hell is wrong with that mother? Does she not understand that these are PORNO reality stars she’s holding up as role models to her little girls? Playboy is still considered pornography right? If Playboy is the ambition of these young girls, is it such a far leap to full blown porn movies?

I also watched this stupid show called Sunset Tan briefly. (Nothing I really want to watch on Wednesday nights.) It’s another profession reality series about a tanning salon in LA.

This rediculously superficial mother brought her 3rd-grade daughter in to get the best tan in the class. She literally spent $1,300 to have her daughter fry in a cancer-causing tanning bed and then get a spray tan. She bought every oil they sold because the sales guy told her This is the package Lindsay Lohan comes in for.

Do you want to look just like Lindsay Lohan, Mom kept saying. Make sure you get her cheeks really good, we want her to look as pretty as Lindsay Lohan. We need for her to be the prettiest girl in the class for her school pictures.

At the last minute the eight-year-old is standing in her bikini in front of some 30ish dude with a spray gun and she says, Mommy, I don’t think I want to do this.

Well, you have to. You have to be the prettiest girl in the class, Mom said, as she pushed her towards the gun.

That poor kid looked like a burned pumpkin when she was finished.

These are NOT empowering messages for our daughters. Young girls should not be so competitive about their prettiness in elementary school. Porn stars/Hugh Hephner's kept women shouldn’t be held up as role models. DUH!

Get some perspective ladies.

P.S. I'm watching this trash - but my daughter is in bed.

I started watching these shows b/c of your blog! I think Sunset Tan is really entertaining. (It helps that there's very few shows on now. I just found the ExWives Club -- LOVE it.) The scene where the naked girl jumped on what's-his-name's back as he was fiddling with the sprayer was hilarous. What other job is there where there's even a chance that a girl in a thong will jump on your back.

and the part where Erin asked Ms. Ex Jose Conseco how much her house cost and if her fiance did her boobs was hilarious. she should have said, if you don't want to tell me how much your house cost, that's fine, i'll just go look it up online!

Rebecca,

I agree they are totally amusing. It's not a sin to watch trash.

As long as we don't let our little daughter's watch it and understand WHY it's not empowering to be Hugh's bimbo or the girl who's appreciated only because of how she looks in a thong.

I agree, that was hilarious. I haven't checked out Ex-Wive's Club, but I will DVR it.
