So obviously, I tuned into the premiere of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? on E!
I wish I had been taking a shot every time this boy clearly just got lost in his own brain. I mean, it is truly intriguing. (I'm going to create a drinking game. I AM! It's going to be next week's post.)
He's a SHOE DESIGNER! Did you guys know this? I didn't. But I'm so glad that I do now. I did some research to see if you could buy his shoes online but couldn't find anything. Trust me though, if I find an online store somewhere, you guys will be the first to know!
I don't know what I was expecting, but I was surprised to see how much air time his family got. The relationship that he has with his brother (who he also lives with) is absolutely precious. Maybe it's because I love my own brother so much, so I love watching other people interacting with theirs, but man, it is just too adorable.
He's kind of a dummy, but I'd be lying if it wasn't a little endearing. I mean, I surely wouldn't want to marry him. But to be a 28 year old guy who was thrown into an international spotlight recently, he and his family seem, on the whole, pretty freakin' normal.
Did you guys watch? What did you think? Would you let Ryan Lochte take you on a date to a sushi place? I probably would. I mean, if I wasn't already getting married, of course. I just... really like sushi.
Now, changing gears a little bit - I've mentioned briefly on here that I love Teen Mom. I love it. I can't get enough. I tuned in to Farrah's Dr Phil episode and watched every second on the edge of my seat. This home movie (ahem) situation that she has going on right now with James Deen is beyond entertaining to me. She did something shady, and she got caught. But instead of owning up to it, she's lying and complaining and being totally awful about it. That girl is eight different levels of delusional, and I think it is hysterical.
PSA: Did you miss Farrah on Dr Phil on Friday? You can watch it here! The quality isn't great, but it's better than nothing and I promise you won't regret it.
But something happened this week on Teen Mom 2, and I'd be lying if I said it hasn't been bothering me this week.
MTV has been criticized before for filming things instead of interfering. They took a lot of heat for filming Amber Portwood hit her boyfriend in the head, and then airing it to teenagers. My issue isn't necessarily with the abuse - obviously it's horrid, but I would never recommend someone get in the middle of a domestic dispute. You could just make it worse. What bothers me more is that not one person on the film crew tried to remove Leah from the situation. They didn't have to take her out of the house, just pick her up and move her to a different room so she didn't watch her mother hit her father.
Now, I love reality tv shows. But there's a line. And I feel like it keeps getting crossed. Why doesn't MTV just stop filming her? It's doing her way more harm than good, and I'm sure I'm not the only viewer who's just kind of uncomfortable watching her now. Stop filming her, let her fall out of the spotlight, and then maybe she can REALLY get the help she needs instead of getting arrested for heroine like she did this week. Yikes.
Who else watches Teen Mom around here? What do you guys think about these awful, entertaining, completely delusional women?
