I will leave this up as an open post for those with the internal fortitude to sit through this clusterfuck of a reality show.
It is not coming on up here until 9:00 Alaska time, so many of you will have already seen it before it has a chance to scorch the corneas of my eyes. I actually hope to be three sheets to the wind by the time that I see it, but I should be sober enough to publish comments. Though I have to warn you that any contributions from me will undoubtedly look like Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Personally I am hoping that after Levi sees how Bristol is setting him up as the epitome of the deadbeat dad, it will finally get him off his dead ass and inspire him to contact one the lawyers in Alaska and find the cojones to stand up for himself, his son, and everybody else that the Palins have run over on their fame whoring bus ride to eventual oblivion.
If this show can get THAT particular ball rolling it might almost be worth the thousands of brain cells that I will lose sitting through this reality show version of a mental colonoscopy.
Update: It looks like this thing actually managed to get somewhat interesting.
At least according to TMZ:
In the suit, filed today in federal court in L.A., the Massey brothers claim they met Bristol on "Dancing with the Stars" ... and developed the idea for a show in which the brothers help Palin meet the challenges of child rearing while adjusting to life in L.A.
In fact, the Masseys claim they had even picked out a name for the show -- "Helping Hands."
The Masseys are demanding monetary compensation -- claiming they were not properly compensated or credited for creating the show.
Whoo hoo! You know I have some serious reservations about the validity of Stephen Hanks lawsuit, but THIS ONE seems much more likely to cause some serious problems for the producers of this show.
Okay, NOW I am interested!
No, not in the show, but DEFINITELY the lawsuit. Go Massey brothers!
More updates: Okay for you guys who refuse to watch but are still kind of curious, here is Politicususa's take on the show, and Wonkette's blisteringly funny blow by blow description.
Wonkette's is my favorite, if for no other reason than because of the graphic they chose to use.
