So, the other night, I was reading this interview with Playboy's Playmate of the Year (further proof that I will, indeed, read just about anything). And the article said, and I quote:
"Besides preparing to represent Playboy, writing a motivational book for young women and planning a reality-TV show, Jayde's agenda includes"........
Writing a motivational book for young women? Really?! And first I laughed, then I got sad, then I got angry. This little tart who posed nude in a national magazine actually thinks she is qualified to motivate young women? To do what? Pose nude? Pole dance? Become a porn star?
Oh, folks, is it just me? Or is there something very, very wrong when someone can flash her private parts for all the world to see, and think that she's some kind of fucking role model for young women? I'll bet her dad's real proud. Yeah.
Now, I have nothing against nudity. And there's nothing wrong with nude photos. Whatever floats your boat. But jeezus christ, if it has come to this, if this trollop thinks she is a role model, and hey, little girls all over the country want to grow up to be just like her, there is something seriously wrong here.
The article goes on to say that one of the things on her agenda is "getting the RESPECT tattoo on her lower abdomen touched up on the TV show L.A. Ink". Oh, honey. Nobody's going to respect you until you first respect yourself.
And somehow this all reminds me of an old joke. A man asks a woman if she would sleep with him for a million dollars. "Maybe", she says. So then he asks her if she would sleep with him for fifty cents. She gasps and says, "Of course not! What kind of woman do you think I am?" and the guy says, "We've already established what kind of woman you are. Now we're just negotiating the price."
