Lifetime – the network for women, has picked up Marc Cherry’s new series, Devious Maids. Centering on the scandalous lives of Latina maids for the wealthy.
So we currently have a show about hookers and maids. Wonderful role models. And on Army Wives, the Latina couple is portrayed as a complete stereotype.
Gloria Cruz is played by Alyssa Diaz. She doubts if she loves her husband, spends all his money, and doesn’t understand why he has to work such long hours.
Why does Lifetime perpetuate these stereotypes? Where are the Latina teachers, engineers, and doctors.
And don’t even get me started about the hookers with hearts of gold on The Client List.
Do women really want to watch these shows? Seems like they are targeting male fantasies – a hooker, a maid, a cocktail waitress.
What do you think?
The Ballad of the Black Pug
There is a custody battle waging between Charlie Sheen and his ex-wife Denise Richards. And it’s not for the former couple’s two daughters, Sam and Lola. It’s for a pug. According to E News, Denise gave Charlie 2 pugs in the divorce and then took them back because she felt that they were neglected. One of the pugs died in Denise’s care though she says it was due to Charlie’s neglect. Now Charlie is tweeting that she is a dog snapper and wants his pug back for his tour.
When Charlie and Denise married, I remember being very happy that they asked for donations to pug rescue instead of gifts. Charlie has often been photographed with pugs. Denise is a dog rescuer and does wonderful work with Best Friends Animal Organization.
I think Denise should keep the pug and Charlie can wander down to the shelter and adopt one of the many homeless pugs in Los Angeles now. I just adopted a pure bred black pug last month from Ramona Humane Society in San Jacinto.
Am I the only one who is getting sick and tired of Hollywood making excuses for and employing all these abusive men? Charlie Sheen gets a mere slap on the wrist for terrorizing his wife and admitting to previously causing her head trauma. Did CBS fire him from their hit show? Absolutely not – they renewed his contract.
Scott Disick breaks a mirror in front of girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian and his infant son. Does E! terminate his contract? No – the network is in talks for paying Scott and Kourtney over a million dollars for rights to their wedding.
Chris Brown gets to perform a tribute to Michael Jackson despite beating his beautiful girlfriend Rihanna.
Mel Gibson’s rants against baby mama Oksana will doubtfully ruin his career.
This is a terrible message to be sending to young women who are currently in abusive relationships. In my early 20s, I was lucky enough to get out of a physically abusive relationship. I thank God everyday that I had the strength to leave and I met my wonderful, calm, sweet husband. But many women today who emulate these movie stars and singers I fear will stay. I urge CBS to fire Charlie and for E! to refuse to pay for Kourtney’s and Scott’s wedding. By taking strong actions, these networks can save lives.
Tonight was the 100th episode of So You Think You Can Dance. It was a great show tonight and I loved that they had members of past years participate. Mrs. Donnie Burns (Heidi Groskeutz) and Travis Wall danced one of my favorite Mia Michaels numbers, but the true highlight was seeing Wade Robson dance to a number her choreographed. He is so brilliant – I want a weekly Wade Robson show. I so understand why Britney cheated on Justin with him. I digress.
The low light – the much hyped Katie Holmes Judy Garland Get Happy dance. Seriously, so so lame. She didn’t even dance – she has a wonderful body and she is stunning, but walking up and down the stage and kicking your leg doesn’t cut it. Especially on a show on the caliber of So You Think You Can Dance. Next time try Dancing with the Stars. But that was truly embarrassing. Anyone who that this would revitalize her career is way off mark.
What is it about Brian Austin Green? He has dated arguably the most beautiful brunettes in Hollywood – Megan Fox, Vanessa Marcil, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen. I guess he and Tommy Lee made a deal in the 80′s – heads brunettes, tails blondes. Tommy still has a lock down on the blonde sex symbols. Anyway, if you’re like me, force yourself to watch the new 90210 just for the slim hope of a David Silver update, you will be truly upset to know that Brian is in talks to star in . . . .One Tree Hill?! What! I understand that he dissed 90210 for Terminator or maybe to break into film (loved his cameo with Steve Sanders in Domino) like his superstar girlfriend but if he is going to return to a teen drama why choose One Tree Hill which is on it’s last leg over the BH 90210? OK, BAG, granted 90210 sucks but you alone can revive it. I say have Donna run into Ray Pruit, start an affair since she and David are separated, and then David can swoop in and save their love.
My hubby and I ran into Zac and Vanessa in the Hawaiian Airlines First Class lounge in Waikiki. They both look even more beautiful in person. Anyway – Zac is obsessed with Back to the Future and says that he would love to play Marty McFly. BTF filmmaker Bob Gale recently said in an interview that he did not want to make a remake or another sequel. In previous interviews, he stated that there was a time they considered a fourth but with Michael J Fox’s health, they wouldn’t consider it. I think a remake is a horrible idea – the movie is a classic. But a fourth would be a great idea. Zac could play Marty’s son – which would work into the theme of the movie since we know Marty has kids with Jennifer. At the end of the first film, Doc comes back and warns Marty about his kids. The producers could make Marty more Doc – like and use his illness as an effect of the time travel – warning Marty Jr. of the consequences of messing with the space time continuum. Any thoughts?
