Peeve of the Moment: Paris Hilton's My New BFF
I have long awaited for the event I call "The Reality Show Hiatus" where reality shows just go on its highest of heights then flop in the face of society. Sadly, it has not come yet.
But to make sure network television juices out every bit of drama people have (allegedly) been craving for, the great idea would be to churn out more! And that's what MTV has been doing: the progeny of all things cheap, dramatic and oh so trashy TV has revamped its reality collection with a season premiere of Paris Hilton's My New BFF.
The premise of this new show is similar to The Bachelor except, instead of winning love the contestants woo to win Paris' friendship. Isn't that sweet? Not really, since the whole essence of the show is to claw your way to the top and leave everyone else broken and/or in ruins. In addition, we also learn that saying "I love you, Paris!" a million times goes a long way, just make sure you slave your way to do it.
I think MTV just redefined friendship.
Anyway, while watching the first episode, I did learn some new lingo. Here are some:
1. bitches - an army of skanks and whores, or in this case a Paris BFF wannabe.
2. hungry tiger - a person who befriends a celebrity to jumpstart his/her fame.
3. TTYN - how to say "farewell" in Paris' little world; translation still at works.
