New Reality Show Promises To Be Trashier Than Jersey Shore!?
The producers of Jersey Shore have a new reality show coming out in January and it promises what seems impossible. To out-trash the Jersey Shore! I was about to pull a bitch's weave off at the mere idea that any show dare claim to me more depraved than JS, but then I heard the premise: a houseful of skanky mothers trying to out-ho their slutty daughters. I guess the tramp-stamped apples didn't fall far from the bump and grind trees.
The show is called Mama Drama and will feature five pairs of 'BFF' moms and daughters. Based on the title I'm assuming some drama will also go down. Here's a look at the cast. I can already tell that the two elegant ladies with the red flowers in their hair are my favorites. I can't wait to see that special mother/daughter bond forever ruined after a night of clubbing and one too many Jagermeister shots.
Of course VH1 exec Jeff Olde has a more highbrow sell of the show.
“Part of this speaks to a new cultural definition of age with women in their 40s and 50s no longer constrained by rules about how they need to dress or act. In some cases, this allows them to forge strong bonds with their daughters and true friendships. In other cases, they cross the line and forget their role as a parent and a role model.”
Yeah, yeah, shaddup. It'll also speak to a culture of old hos competing with their daughters to get the attention of Ed Hardy-wearing d-bags. Lots of sad MILF action. Lots of daughter's displaying shocked faces. This pair will be on the show in ten years:
But do people want more Jersey Shore-type shows? The last season of AKA Guidos in the Homeland was their lowest rated ever. Could it be? Are people finally over the trash? I don't think so. At least it seems like people are finally over the Ed Hardy and JWoww inspired custom-made skank tops. That's a step in the right direction.
I'm betting Mama Drama will be a hit. Let's face it, reality TV is here to stay and it only has one way to go, further down into the depraved depths of humanity. You can be like me and use it to feel better about yourself or you can succumb to depression caused by the fact that The Situation is a multi-millionaire. Weeping now.
