|Dahlia Kurtz | Host of "The Goods"||
You should have seen all the paparazzi following me after this appearance on "The Morning Show." Or maybe getting whacked with a racket by the host just made me see things.
I found the 2011 Golden Globe Awards highly offensive, and I'm not just talking about Natalie Portman's dress.
Honestly, I have only myself to blame for this. Why did I have to watch? At least I came to my senses about an hour in, when I turned the channel. (Thank you, Weather Network.)
Still, even though I didn’t watch the full four-hour telecast, I watched a couple hours of the pre-show – practically a week in Hollywood years.
I should have learned my lesson last year, after taking in sub-idiotic red carpet exchanges, including:
There has been a lot of backlash over an article by Marie Claire writer Maura Kelly. Her story focuses on Mike & Molly, a sit-com about two overweight people, and her disgust in watching fat people … do pretty much anything.
First, I want to congratulate Marie Claire on a successful PR strategy. Publish an unfavourable, media-grabbing, society-polarizing, controversial piece, then counter with a series of stories opposing it, siding with the public-at-large.
Well played, Ms. Claire. Well played.
Second, I want to take this opportunity to voice my disgust in watching skinny people, do pretty much everything on TV.
