So I was watching the television with Gia the other night, and the two of us couldn't be different in our viewing habits.
I like reality shows like Survivor and The Amazing Race. She likes reality shows like the stuff they show on the Biography Channel or MSNB and CNN reports. I like TV shows like NCIS and Criminal Minds. She likes the programming on the Home Shopping Network. Oh, there are some similarities. We both love Dexter, The Office and a host of other programs.
But our biggest difference comes from those celebrity stalking programs (as I like to call them) like TMZ or Entertainment Tonight. I hate those fucking shows, and she loves them. LOVES THEM! She also reads TMZ and Perez Hilton on-line and she reads those crap magazines like In Touch. Horrible stuff. And yet I still love her.
So the other night on one of those programs, there was a story about Brad Garrett and an encounter he had with some of his paparazzi. The pap, a truly disgusting man, openly antagonized the big man and called him a whole host of stupid names. I mentioned how I felt about these stalking scumbags and Gia agreed wholeheartedly. I told her that the only way that they would go away is if we, the public, stopped feeding the fires by purchasing those trash mags, watching those trash shows and visiting those trash sites. She agreed.
But she just can't do it. Loves them too much.
Well I am here to promise you that I will never visit those sites, read those mags or watch those shows ever again!
Well, at least until the next time that Britney goes crazy.
