If you’ve read this site for a while, you know I do not care for Katherine Heigl. And I’m saying that as politely as possible. Why do I not care for her? Well, I’m glad you asked. After she was the third choice to play the lead in the highly successful, Knocked Up (the movie that gave her a career outside television), instead of being thankful and grateful, she immediately shit on it to anyone who would listen saying the film was sexist and offensive to women. In 2008, when she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy for Grey’s Anatomy, she threw the writers under the bus and said she “did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination”. She was summarily fired and has recently begged to get back on. Then there was the time she called out an announcer when she was presenting at the Emmys because he mispronounced her name. Because everybody should know how to pronounce “Heigl” (btw, what are you a Nazi?). Anyway, yesterday in an article she wrote for iVillage, Heigl has aimed her cunt gun at Dance Moms because she doesn’t want the Asian kid she adopted because her vagina is too pure and pristine to ever condescend to think about childbirth to live in a world where children are in pageants.
I’m not much of a reality TV watcher. I tend to stick mostly to the comedies and dramas that I love, but I recently happened to catch an episode of Dance Moms and watched with open-mouthed amazement as girls as young as seven were encouraged to dress provocatively and shimmy around a stage doing a dance performance that could just as easily been a burlesque routine. I kept thinking all these girls were missing is a pole! I was also horrified by the way their instructor spoke to them when she felt they weren’t up to snuff. It was demeaning, belittling, and downright unkind. I pray that I reach my daughter and am able to guide and support her growth as a woman and hope with all my heart shows like this don’t get to her first.. It is a true challenge we parents have ahead of us and the stakes are very high. We will have to perpetually battle and kick against the values mass media prioritize and emphasize those that truly matter. We will have to find a way to convince our children that what they see in the world around them is not always right and true even when it’s far more prevalent than what we tell them is right and true. We will have to hope, pray, and beg them to trust us and commit every moment to earning their trust so that we can ensure their emotional, spiritual, and physical well being and self-worth.
As you read this sanctimonious, holier than thou bullshit, let’s all take a trip back to 1994 where a 14-year old Katherine Heigl starred in My Father The Hero. A movie where she walked around IN A FUCKING THONG THE WHOLE TIME. But let’s just ignore that hypocrisy because Heigl has a high horse to ride. Mostly about her being a better parent than you. I realize she thinks that she’s one of those strong, empowered women who just “tells it like it is, gurlfren'”, but that’s the problem. You don’t tell it like it is. You tell it like YOU think it is. Sometimes it’s better to shut the fuck up and not worry about how other people live their lives. Nobody cares what you have to say. Especially my father. He never loved me that’s why I sabotage my relationships and turn away anyone who loves me. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANTED TO HEAR KATHERINE?! IS IT?!
P.S. Stop being a cunt.
