I generally love Flipping Out's Jeff Lewis, which I suppose is evidence of my unnaturally high tolerance for assholes, but the other night he even pissed me off. He listed the three things he was violently afraid of. They are:
- Clowns (Yawn. Who isn't?)
- Drag Queens
- Homeless People
I had to roll my eyes at the first two—the man obviously wears makeup and gets collagen injected into his lips and he's afraid of a dude in a skirt? I find that highly unlikely.
But my little PC-heart was truly annoyed by his stance on homeless people. That was just cruel—especially when the homeless person on the job site died.
Like most reality shows, Flipping Out has gotten worse as the seasons wear on and the cast can see how they're portrayed on-air. For one thing—everyone gets skinnier. Jenny and Ryan both look skeletal this season. But they're not the only ones—remember how chunky Kathy Griffin's brunette assistant was last year? She's dropped at least three sizes coming into this season. Real Housewife Bethanny Frankel moved whatever fat she might've been packing in the back and moved it up to her bra. That scene of her in the pool showing visible front rib with giant saline bags popping out on top is burned in my brain.
I'm not sure where I'm going with all this. Just trying to get back into writing in my blog. I have my big horrible gum surgery next Monday and it's difficult to think of anything else. Bad TV keeps my mind off my mouth. Speaking of which, I wonder what'll happen on Gossip Girl tonight?
