My feelings about MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” are on the record in these parts — to me, it represents everything that is wrong with the youth of America.
Well, VH1 is aiming to outgun that “Sweet 16” with “You’re Cut Off,” a new reality show (I believe it airs first tomorrow night) about the very same type of women who had those lavish Super Sweet 16 parties. Only now they’re all grown up. And still as helpless and moronic and dependent as always. The conceit is this: Nine spoiled princesses are taken off the teat. They’re cut off, thrown into a mansion together, and asked to cook their own meals and clean their own toilets. Oh, the fucking humanity!
What I like about a show like this is that, of all the horrible, evil, awful pissant fuckers who live in this world, it’s always nice to know that worse people do. exist. They are the spoiled daughters of obscenely wealthy people. All the Heigls and Bays and Tyler Perrys and Paul Haggissesssss in the world cannot piss me off as much as these people. They are truly vile human beings. Instead of being forced to cook and clean for themselves, they should be forced to work in the very same sweat shops that probably made their parents obscenely wealthy in the first place or, at the very least, account for half of their wardrobe.
