Dump that Zero!
It’s no secret that I have been watching Laguna Beach since the first season back in 2004. I even like(d) it a bit. Stephen was a doofus and Kristin was only maybe 16 and knew how to make guys line up for her while she did what she wanted. Even LC seemed like an okay girl, though she is somewhat smarter on The Hills, if you forget about the whole passing up a summer in Paris to be with her idiot boyfriend thing.
But I’ve been watching this season and it such a letdown. The girls are horrible! They sit around waiting for some beefy necked, acne covered dudes to call them or talk to them and that’s pretty much it. Two of them were dating guys who just wouldn’t speak to them in public. Seriously. And instead of dumping these jerks immediately, the girls wonder what’s happening and wait to find out what the guys want with them. UGH! It is infuriating to watch. The egos the guys now have are incredible. I can’t wait for something bad to happen to any of them just to knock them down a few pegs. They’re not even attractive! Or smart! Or funny! They’re just wastes… who get their pick of all these girls who are way too good for them.
This season also marks a clear case of someone getting a taste of television and then creating a new persona:
In more personal news I’m working on a commercial for a certain beauty product that ladies can sell themselves (not Mary Kay)…and while model calls usually make me feel even shorter and fatter than usual, today made me feel oddly good about myself. It was all beauty, meaning extreme close-ups, and wow was everyone’s skin pretty bad. It was also for lips and eyes specifically. Girls would come in and I’d think “she’s pretty” then she’d leave and the director would be like “one of her eyelids is heavier than the other, she has dark circles that make her look 50!” Harsh. It made me appreciate how good my skin is. And that same, harsh director thought I was in college. Yes! That means that I don’t look as old as the 24 year old French model. I win life!
I already thought Ugly Betty was the best new show on television, but then tonight Harrison from Popular. (ie. The best show EVER) is on playing a nerdy (read: hot) accountant, so it is firmly cemented in that title. That’s a relief.
Now I will leave you with some hilarious Laguna Beach quotes that I saw on the imdb page when I was googling it:
LC: I don't wanna marry Stephen.
Lo's Mom: Lo, it's not a fashion show...
Kristin: Jessica, he's cheating on you! Take it from someone who used to cheat on her boyfriend. Those are signs of him cheating!
Alex: It's fate telling you, you need to get a new car.
Lo: [in the limo before prom] Morgan has the same dress as me. She's... a whore.
