The other day, as I was searching around on the web, I ran across something that truly disgusted me. You may or may not have heard of it, but it’s called BridalPlasty, and it’s a crazy new idea that E! has come up with. The basic gist of it goes something like this: several brides to be who are unhappy with the way they look all move into a house together. They complete little daily wedding related tasks with the winner immediately going in to have some kind of plastic surgery done. The winner of the whole show gets as much plastic surgery as she wants done, and her groom is totally shocked (disgusted) when he lifts the veil to see….a different woman than he fell in love with.
Really? I mean REALLY?
How long do networks and the public have to work before women are actually happy with the way that they look, only to have a show like this to undermine it all? I’ve never been so disgusted by a reality television show, although several have come close.
ABC News describes it pretty well in this lovely little quote:
Competing in wedding-themed challenges such as writing vows and planning honeymoons “each week one lucky bride will … get one piece of her dream body — going under the knife for one of the surgeries off her ‘wish list”….
If you’re really interested, you can read more about the show here. To me, it’s disgusting.
Thoughts? Think it’s great entertainment, or a disservice to women?
