so i have finally gotten around to watching the documentary "the queen of versailles" & it is SO beverly hillbillies :-(
jackie is so smart yet does such stupid things. going to mcdonalds in a limo, her uniform of jean shorts & a tank top(not even on my worst days can you find me in jorts & a tank top), etc. she has a good heart but everything else is so wtf.
seems like the only charity they give to is miss usa & that is only so the husband can flirt with the women. idk, if i was a billionaire, i would give my money to real causes like the homeless or cancer research(but thats just me).its like they are white trash living in a $75 million house. it really boggles the mind.
i havent finished yet, but maybe i'll post more thoughts later
mind you i have not seen it yet but here's just something to think about.
it is a reality show featuring rockabilly/retro couples in los angeles county & the cast is all white. i find it funny because from what i have seen, the rockabilly scene here is %90 latin/hispanic/mexican. i wonder how many years it took for the production company to even find so many white people to participate(one of the stars said that she was first asked in 2011).
i have no problem with women wanting to cosplay with vintage clothes(lord knows i love a good acid washed jean & poodle skirt).but i do have a problem with feminists saying that the women should not be housewives even though that is what the women chose.
you really have to take it all with a grain of salt since the show was rigged/scripted before they even got there, then edited to death once they left. it is a good premise, but i'll wait for "mad men". THEY have better writers & a sexier cast. :-)
so i decided that i would find a husband & the best way of doing that would be to date more(i have been influenced by the book "the year of yes").i have yet to go out with homeless men like the author,though. i basically had a date with almost every man who asked me(especially if i was not attracted to him). i thought that i had horrible taste in men, so if i were attracted then he obviously was no good.my thoughts on that have changed a little.
it is ok that i have "horrible" taste in men. better that than wincing when he tries to kiss me.
it is almost 3am & i am rambling, so that means it must be time for bed!
