Modern Family's Jesse Tyler and Eric Stonestreet
and 3 other's whos names haven't been leaked yet.
.........This is not a joke.
Okay.....where do I start with this one? Well, clearly Barbara Walters has full-blown dementia, is on heavy drugs, or has waited 82 years to make a joke (which isn't amusing, i'd like to add). This list is a perfect example of how sick our country is. The Kardashians are watchable to either males who enhance their daily jerk-fest by looking at Kim, or females under 13yrs of age, therefore unaware of how naive their generation is for buying in to the idea forced upon them by the media of what makes a person important. Entertaining is an acceptable title for the Kardashians, but fascinating is delusional. In the 2,798 seasons they’ve been on tv, I have watched off and on simply by default, as in, there was literally nothing else on, and their show airs on a continuous 24/7 reel on E! I’ve seen the same exact episode each time, with the exception of a different wardrobe and/or location. They conversate by saying nothing other than how “amaaaazing” something/someone is, or how every single situation is ”crazy, right?”. Whether it’s an unplanned pregnancy, a dramatic tantrum, or a simple daily papparazzi sighting, the same “that’s crazy, right?” reaction is all we are provided. Kim’s breakfast is just as “amazing” as her nephew’s birth is, & she’s pretty so she is exempt from knowing more than 2 adjectives, I suppose. Out of 8 family members (include Scott and Lamar to make it 10), not one of them is a nurse, or an engineer, or has served our country in the military. Bruce was an “amazing” athelete in his day, which got him some money, divorces, and pussy for days (not in that order but you get the point), so good for him....three decades ago. But as an adult who is studying to work in the thankless EMS world for embarrassing income, with a sister who's an engineer just like my dad, who was also a Lt.Col. in the AF, my definition of "fascinating" is based on the people around me, the goals they set, and the hard work they put into reaching those goals. Barbara Walters has a completely different definition, I guess. I don’t consider Kim’s tears over a dog she adopted for a day, or Khloe letting a bum use Kris's shower one time enough of a contribution to the world to earn a title of “Fascinating”, or anything like it.
And I won’t even touch the Katy Perry one, other than to say how much I miss the days when musically talented artists overpowered the few lucky, marketable "entertainers", who slipped through the cracks just long enough to get a one-hit wonder stuck in my head for a summer. For example, Christina Aguilera is the best female voice i’ll probably hear in my lifetime, yet an "okay-I-guess" voice, simply paired with catchy nonsense and cartoonish fashion choices, make Katy Perry “fascinating”? Alrighty. “Obnoxious” used to be….well….just “obnoxious”, whether resulting in fame or not. In the year 2011, fame is valued more than an education, a selfless act of service, treating others with general kindness, fighting a war, or anything else that requires sacrifice or dedication. Despite how easily it is obtained, the importance of fame and fortune officially transform a fool into a "fascinating" role model for younger generations, who are too young to know irrelevence on a realistic level. They then inevitably set their sites on this fantasy for their future goals and aspirations. America is so screwed.
Lastly, Donald Trump?....Really, Barb? Eeeew...on so many levels. Just.....eew.
The last three mystery people on Barbara's list better be respectable in some way, or I might have to deport myself.
