Worst of the Worst: Reality TV

-Tamara Feingold

As if three seasons of gelled hair, fist pumping, and spray-tanned gorillas weren’t enough, the creators of Jersey Shore are making a new show called Mama Drama, and it looks even trashier. The show will feature a group of mother-daughter pairs (the ones who call themselves best friends, party together, dress alike, etc.) attempting to live in a house together. This show called my attention to a problem that has taken over our generation: bad reality TV shows. I made a list of the shows I consider to be the worst of the worst.

  1. New York Goes to Work: Tiffany “New York” Pollard, originally from the show Flavor of Love, starred in this show in which she tried to do actual jobs and failed at most of them. New York spent most of her time screaming about having to touch a pig and overreacting to almost every request when she attempted a farmer job.
  2. Real Chance of Love: Brothers Real and Chance were the stars of this dating show in which the contestants had nicknames like Corn Fed, Milf, Bay Bay Bay, and Meatball. Need I say more?
  3. Rock of Love with Bret Michaels: Poison singer’s blonde hair extensions and ever-present bandana were just too much.
  4. My Super Sweet 16: Every episode ended in a complete spoiled-brat breakdown in which the birthday girl attacked her parents for doing something foolish like buying her the wrong $75,000 car.
  5. Real Housewives of Anywhere: I actually used to like the Real Housewives series until I realized watching wealthy middle-aged women fight about things like Facebook drama and party invites was a waste of my time.
  6. Bridezillas: This show was seriously painful to watch as I constantly felt the need to stop these people from getting married.

Ten Things You Shouldn’t be for Halloween

-Tamara Feingold

You only have a couple of weeks before October 31st is here, but that doesn’t mean you should be lazy with your Halloween costume. Here’s a list of ten people you shouldn’t try to dress up as because everyone else has already tried it.

1. Snooki

Although the Jersey Shore star can be pretty loveable, all of the fake tans/teased hair/huge pink slippers have been a little too much the past few years.

2. Famous Athletes

I know it’s easy because all you have to buy is a jersey, but most of us still won’t know who you are and will probably think you didn’t even dress up. Try being a celebrity that’s easily recognizable for those who don’t watch sports all day.

3. Black Swan

Although this may seem like a good idea at first, let’s think about the mess. No one wants to have to pick up your failed attempt at stick-on feathers, even though some fierce eye makeup and red eye contacts would look pretty convincing.

4. Lady Gaga

I know all of her little monsters want to pay some respect with a hair-in-a-bow headband and some fake bangs, but Lady Gaga herself is the only one who wears meat dresses and outfits made out of bubbles. Let’s keep it that way.

5. Anything Prepackaged

This year, instead of going to Spencer’s and buying a sexy police officer outfit, you should try to think of something clever. You can still look cute, but without spending $50 on something five other people at the party also bought.

6. The Cast of Twilight

Being pale and glittery is okay if you’re Edward, but if you try this at a party everyone will make fun of you so they can pretend like they didn’t see New Moon three times in theaters.

7. Spice Girls

A tempting costume choice for any group of five girls, the classic Baby Spice & Co. entourage should be avoided. It’s been done too many times and you never really turn out looking like Victoria Beckham.

8. Nicki Minaj

Don’t get me wrong I love a little Super Bass. But it’s just too easy to pick up a plastic Barbie necklace and a pink wig and call it good.

9. The Cast of The Office

Unless you wear a nametag (also forbidden) no one will know who you are and you’ll probably just look like a nerd who shouldn’t have been invited to the party.

10. Steve Jobs

It’s just too soon.
