    S06.E13: I Said I Got It!

    I’ve been a tourist. I’ve never been a Tahitian.

    Not even close to blackface. And I decline to appropriate Tahitian feelings by getting in a dither about touristy silliness.

    Regardless of whether the guests or producers were behind the entertainment, I say meh. The crew let themselves look silly doing what they and the guests clearly knew wasn’t something they actually knew how to do correctly. They weren’t mocking a culture or appropriating it. They were being unpretentious about how it wasn’t their skill or culture.

    Because he can’t figure out what triggers her so he keeps his interactions with her in what he thinks is the safe zone.

    As a woman I vehemently disagree with the implied notion that Rhylee gets a pass for absurd work behavior just because she has a vagina. Holding her out as an example of a woman mistreated at work simply because she’s a woman makes a mockery of women for whom that’s a legitimate claim.

    S06.E01: Single, Fat and Crazy

    Whitless keeps saying she’s keeping Buddy’s presence from Heather because Heather said she didn’t want to hear about Buddy, but really it’s because she doesn’t want Heather questioning her loyalty or her adherence to girl code. All she had to do was text Heather and say “FYI Buddy is spending a few days visiting Greensboro and is staying in Donna’s old room at my house.” If Heather got upset Whitless should’ve just said “I love you, Heather, but I’m still Buddy’s friend too.” The end. But I guess that’s not how anyone Makes Good TV.

    We’ll know Todd reads this forum if he starts wearing double sided tape around Whitney.

    I don’t think this show left a great impression about Kyle’s and Kim’s father (Kathy was the child of a previous Big Kathy marriage), who IRL was a serial cheater, having married and had kids with at least two women he cheated on. IIRC Big Kathy was his mistress before they married. In other words, Kyle “loosely based” this show on some awful people who happened to be her parents. I didn’t think it would be palatable and it wasn’t. (Side note: Kyle posted a smarmy Father’s Day tribute to her dad on IG and blocked me for commenting that IMO good fathers don’t cheat on the mothers of their children. I think she’s too confused about her childhood to really make the concept work for this show.)

    I get it. It’s why I don’t shave, bathe or brush my teeth. Screw other peoples’ expectations. So why do people avoid me? Probably my rosacea. Yeah, that’s it. It’s my rosacea.

    It’s the current version of pro wrestling. Real, I swear.
  12. “Hostile work environment” is a term of art in employment law that doesn’t mean what your use suggests you think it means.

    S06.E12: Check Yourself!

    Wow. Did you miss the part where Laura, on her initial tour of the boat, belittled and insulted Kate and Josiah as well as the boat’s inferior standards? Right in front of Kate? What I saw after that was Kate giving her a chance (and another one and another one) while patiently correcting her.

    Passive aggressive, effective and hilarious.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that the guy in Deep Roots saw the cameras and recognized that trio because everyone in Greensboro must know about this show by now. And the conversation between him and Whitless was obviously heavily edited, likely in order to cut out the part where they discuss him knowing about the show. (But they didn’t get him to sign the waiver so they could show his face, so prob means no date for Heather.)
