OK, so I'm not a TV person at all, really. I find it pretty silly to sit down and watch the latest TV obsessions which are ONLY designed so that you can sit through 10 to 20 minutes of advertising. If the show is that hot, I'll catch it on DVD...

But for the last few months, the magazines I grab for while waiting in line at the grocery store or waiting for a flight have been focused on John and Kate and their divorce.

Question....who the fuck are these people???

Another question....who does this woman's hair, it looks like she's wearing a blond tarantula..

Third question....WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE PEOPLE???

It's annoying enough when has-been actors and singers get a reality show. Although, at least then you can see how the other half lives. But when some dorky ass interracial couple who over did it on the fertility drugs invades magazine headlines and news because they are (gasp) getting a divorce??!! Now I'm just ashamed to be American.

But today takes the cake. I wanted to check out some of the pictures from the tributes done for Michael Jackson at the BET awards. A show I never tune in for, but don't mind checking out and today seeing how the black folks honored King MJ over the weekend. However, I couldn't help but notice before I clicked on the hilarious picture of Beyonce dressed as a bride that in the corner underneath the latest Jackson news was this headline "INSIDE STORY: Gosselin Divorce Papers Explained"...

The strangest thing I find about this John & Kate headline (if you can even see it) is the caption underneath it: "WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE COUPLES DIVORCE FILINGS- AND WHAT TO IGNORE".

You can't make this stuff up.

Not that I'm taking the side of anyone who exploits their lives and the lives of their kids for "fame" and fortune, but seriously....WHY do people need to know ANYTHING about someone else divorce? How does this impact the lives of anyone outside of their family? What moron is actually clicking on this link and reading up on the bullet points relating to these two people's personal lives?? If you are in any way invested emotionally in the lives of John & Kate...go get a knife and end it, cause you have nothing else to live for.

Seriously...END IT.

Ah, the famous for being infamous bit.

I really hate a lot of reality TV.
