A moral dilemma

Standard

I just heard the news this morning that Heather Mills is going to be on Dancing with the Stars this next series.
This leaves me with a bit of a dilemma. Do I watch, or not? Do I boycott the show in protest over, number one, that woman being called a “star”, and, two, the fact that the only reason she’s been asked to be on is because she was married to someone famous and is now leveling false accusations at him? Or do I just watch, as planned? Because if I do watch, it won’t be because she’s on. I am a Dancing with the Stars fan. I love the show and have been watching it since the beginning. So I wouldn’t be supporting their apparent determination to embrace sordidness — I’d have been watching no matter who was on.
I just really resent that this has happened. I know what they are going to do — they will play up the whole amputee angle of it but when it comes down to brass tacks the bottom line is the producers wouldn’t have given her the time of day if she wasn’t embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with one of the world’s greatest musicians. It’s very unfortunate that the powers that be have chosen to take this route. It cheapens the entire show; a show which, I’ll admit, though I love, was a bit on the cheesy side to begin with.
It would be much easier if I hated the show; then I could just wish the entire series ill and be done with it.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I hadn’t heard that whatsername was going to be on. I think it is complete moronic. However, you have to watch the show and hope she is the first to be chucked out. After all, we watched when that big lummox, schlumping blob, old rap guy shuffled around the floor like the Creeping Terror!
