Trivial Nonsense – NY Housewife makes a huge faux-paux

I usually don’t waste my time with such paltry entertainment like the Real Housewives of New York. The show is a petty, out of touch, 45 minute cat fight. It is like watching Lady Macbeth, Iago, Don John, Tamora, and Kate that never became tamed run around New York’s high society. Yes I watch it for the Shakespearean undertones, that’s right…

Anyway, the latest episode had all the familiar two-faced niceties. You get used to how the women treat eachother after awhile. Nothing’s shocking. Or so I thought. I wright about this because it has to do with children and self-esteem. You’ll see.

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, who is full of herself and MUST be address by her title, visited a local YWCA. The young girls at the Y were being treated to a bit of mentoring from the Countess. The Countess warmed the crowd up by letting the girls know how important her husband’s family was in building the Suez Canal, which everyone knows girls 8-17 just can’t hear enough about.

With all that out of the way, The Countess asked the girls what they wanted to do when they grew up. A doctor, a teacher, a babysitter. A model one girl answered. The Countess asked the girl to stand. She complimented the girl on her beautiful face and her height. The girl was a little husky, so The Countess reassured the poor girl that she had plenty of time to loose that weight. I’m glad to know that Ms. de Lesseps wanted to “donate my time and resources to this program because statistics show that girls who are supported by positive role models and provided with information on the physical and emotional changes that occur during adolescence have less depression, teen pregnancy, and substance abuse problems.”

When compared to the nurturing skills of The Countess, I think it’s safe to say I have secure that #1 Dad mug for father’s dad this year.
