I have a confession to make: I’m a reality TV junkie. I’m talking about the real trashy, I’m-lookin’-for-love-in-all-the-wrong-places kind. It’s my little bit of escape from life stresses. I’ve been with my new cable provider for over two years and the only channel I know by heart is VH1, which reigns supreme with their Celeb-Reality lineup.
I was searching the Web earlier in the week and came across a Bossip headline that caught my eye: “Bad Girls Club Natalie Nunn Spits on One of Her Roommates & Gets Away With It!!!”
I won’t even front like I’ve never seen the show before. I don’t watch it religiously, but I happened to come across it late last year while flipping through channels. If memory serves me correct, I saw a bunch of girls running around a house in their panties and hey, I’m a guy, so I stuck around for a bit.
At any rate, I was familiar with the Natalie chick from the Bossip story because she stood out and reminded me of that old McDonald’s character Mac Tonight.
Here’s a refresher clip for the young’n’s.
Despite Natalie’s big chin, she’s still a cute chick and I’d Chris Brown that (read: hit it). But that’s neither here nor there. Based on the headline, it was clear that she had done the unimaginable and spat on a roommate. I watched the clip and couldn’t believe that the chick that got spit on did nothing. Yeah, she hopped up out the bed to talk smack, but that’s all she did—talk.
I’m sorry, but spitting on someone is the ultimate form of disrespect. You spit on things that are beneath you, like the street, so to hock one on another human being is a major sign of contempt. But ol’ girl just laid there and took it, while Natalie got to remain in the house without any kind of reprimand.
A few days later, I was sitting on the couch watching Real World: Washington, DC and some chick spit on the Black dude, Ty, during a drunken, sexual tension fueled spat (no pun intended). He wound up pinning her against the wall and “jokingly” called her a bitch before the other roommates separated them.
Is spitting the new reality trend or something? If so, I’m surprised ass whoppin’s on TV aren’t on the rise. Maybe it’s the cameras that are making people punk out on retaliating, but id be the first one to respond like Tiffany “New York” Pollard did when fellow Flavor of Love contestant “Pumpkin” spit on her after getting eliminated. New York was not having it and snatched that chick up with the quickness. Or maybe that’s just me.
What would you do if someone spit on you? Would you retaliate or turn the other cheek? Do you think spitting on someone is the ultimate form of disrespect? Does it actually show someone’s cowardice by resorting to such a weak action? Have you ever been spit on? Do you think that the people above didn’t respond because they were on TV? Should Natalie have been kicked out of the Bad Girls Club house for spitting like they do for physical violence? Are you a reality TV junkie too? What’s the most disrespectful thing that someone has ever done to you?
