Spoiled Rotten

I'm sure they're playing it up for the camera, but this 15-year-old pageant queen is definitely on my short list of the most spoiled kids I've ever seen. I didn't watch the show, but I hope to God that the other mom they brought in was able to knock some sense into her. I think maybe a stint in prison would do her some good.

Incidentally, what the hell were they thinking when they titled that show "Wife Swap?" How much of their potential audience won't tune in because of the ick-factor of the name, and how many people do tune in and then get disappointed because they were expecting some sort of HBO Real Sex show?

Ugh. And I bet her parents threaten to sue if her teachers see this and fail her.

Have you ever seen the show MY SUPER SWEET 16, Adam. It's on MTV and Mike Gerardi turned me on (?) to it a few months ago ... it is the scariest thing ever made in "the stupid, spoiled teen brat" category. Precisely because the show is celebratory and not a cautionary tale like the thread on WIFE SWAP (or even Paris and Nicole in THE SIMPLE LIFE).

Honestly, I mostly felt bad for the waitress. I really don't care if her parents don't make her work and treat her like a princess. But the low-paid people in the ranks of the service industry have to put up with enough crap without some little glamourpuss and her trashy family waltzing in and smugly bossing them around.

Also, whoever came up with "the customer is always right" deserves to be kicked between the eyes repeatedly.

What the hell *is* wife-swap about, anyway? I've been avoiding it because I thought it sounded creepy.

Also -- Jeez, the dad was totally there supporting that disgusting child in her "OMG YOU RIPPED MAH PICTURE" baby fit. And as if the teen's makeup isn't scary enough, what's with the mom's look?

Ugh, the Christmas tree. Ugh, insanity at the waitress. Ugh, "I don't do manual labor." Ugh, ugh, ugh.

It's the same exact premise as Trading Spouses (the shows premiered at almost the same time, too - I think they both accused the other of ripping them off) - they find two diametrically opposed families, and then switch the moms for a week or two, and the new mom gets to try to make the new family live by her rules for the time.
