You Give Girls A Bad Name

Is it just me, or is the ratio of annoying female celebrities to annoying male celebrities something like 75:1? I don't want to sound catty or like a traitor to my gender, but if I do sound that way, so be it. Some of these broads just need to be smacked, plain and simple. And no, I'm not jealous. I'm nauseous.

I guess I should preface this by saying that I am not a girly-girl. Never have been. I don't have a gaggle of gal-pals. I've never been in a sorority. When I'm at a bar or restaurant, I'm perfectly capable of going to the bathroom by myself. I don't like shopping or talking on the phone. When I bump into a girlfriend who I haven't seen for a whole week, I don't feel the need to shriek like a Banshee and hug the snot out of her as if she had just returned from the dead. I don't get manicures. And I don't put on the quasi-lesbian act on the dance floor with my friends to get male attention. (Ok, well I have done that a few times, but only when I was tipsy and fully aware that it was being done satirically.)

I've always been a "guy's girl". I watch football and don't need a glass for my beer. I love darts and pool. I'm not easily offended, and don't have a problem with bodily functions. I'm not a cryer. Most importantly, if I'm pissed off, I'll tell you why rather than make you guess. This all must come from having a dominantly male influence in my family. I've always gotten along better with men, and I have a laundry list of fellas who think I'm a "cool girl" but don't think of me in that way to prove it. Yeah, it's not always fun being the guy's girl, but I wouldn't give it up to be Little Miss High Maintenance.

But enough about me. Let's get back to the girly celebs who are currently making it hard to be a woman these days. (Don't worry, I'll pick on some men soon enough.)

Sssup babee? Yama zazzle blop!

Anna Nicole Smith - Anna is still looking for her cut of her dead husband's riches. The Blonde Dumb-Shell appealed the original ruling, which left her with nothing, and somehow managed to get the Supreme Court to hear her case. I'm guessing it has something to do with all the male Supreme Court judges being as old as dirt and hoping for a chance to hop into bed with her themselves? Or is the J-crew really that bored and just trying to liven up their daily grind? I hear that Anna plans to defend herself in the case. Apparently her opening and closing arguments will consist of unintelligible drivel, and the middle part will just be a lot of posing and catchphrases like, "D'ya like my body?". And if the case doesn't seem to be going her way, one of her boobs might "accidentally" fall out of her top. With 7 men and 2 women ruling, she may very well walk away a winner with that strategy.

Ohhh umm yesss, special sauce...
Paris Hilton - This chick has been on my nerves since the first time I saw her vacant visage. I used to think Mariah Carey was the most annoying woman on the planet, but Paris nearly knocked her completely off my radar. If you blinked, you might not be aware that she recently became engaged. Blink again? Ok, she's not anymore. Sounding a lot like Renee Zellweger, Paris issued a statement about the break-up in which she said, "I hope people will respect my privacy during this emotional time". I'd find it a lot easier to respect her privacy if she wasn't constantly sticking that dolphin nose of hers into every camera within a 50 yard radius. Anyway, Miss Thang thought she found the love of her life in Paris Latsis, a young man who is the son of Greek shipping tycoon, John Latsis. Unfortunately it was not to be. Paris soon realized that just because her beau shared her first name, dumb blonde looks and life of privilege, he couldn't quite compare to the real love of her life - herself. She will soon be following in Anna Nicole's footsteps and heading to the Supreme Court. Her goal is to get self-marriage legalized.

Me hungry. Me want burger too!
Lindsay Lohan - It's such a shame. I really used to like this girl. Now she just aggravates me. However, at a recent intervention where she was made to walk through a Hall of Mirrors, she finally admitted that she was too thin. She's decided that she wants to be a role model to young girls by telling them that they need to take better care of themselves than she did and be proud of their bodies. And what better way to teach the young people about self-acceptance than posing nude! Yes, Lindsay has decided to grin and bare it for Vanity Fair, just like pal Paris Hilton did. According to the linked story, Hilton's recent mag cover, where she appeared naked from the waist up with her arms strategically placed over the Hilton towers,"inspired Lindsay to push the envelope even further." I think it's great that Paris is leading by example. Now if only she would go jump off a bridge.

Oh, my nose! Oh, my nose!
Jennifer Garner - I'm not an Alias fan and I have never seen what the big fascination with this girl is. I don't dislike her as much as the 3 goofs listed above, but her recent "slip-up" just had me shaking my head in half apathy, half irritation. When Garner recently appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show, she refused to answer Jay Leno's questions regarding the sex of her unborn baby. However, at one point in their conversation Jennifer referred to the baby as "she", followed by a overdramatic "oops" moment where she slapped both hands over her mouth and then laughed. Cue the "mwah-mwah-mwah" music and laugh track. Oh, Jennifer you silly! You let the cat out of the bag! Then she continued on by saying, Oops, I didn't mean to say "she". But that doesn't mean we're having a boy either. What I mean to say is that my baby is definitely a girl. What? No, wait! That's not what I meant to say! I meant that we don't know yet what she is. Woops! I said it again! Ha ha. I hope no one's watching. Ben and I really wanted to keep this secret. Just in case, could you please have one of your assistants call all the major newspapers and magazines and tell them that I'm having a girl? Aaah!! Tee-hee! No, no, I mean, call them and tell them that it could be a girl. Or not. But maybe. *Cough*And we're registered at Baby Armani.*Cough*

Uh huhuh, my butt crack can act too.
Tara Reid - I'm not quite sure how Tara became famous. You can find a thousand girls just like her on any given college campus, spring break destination or overpriced, crowded nightclub. Now the poor thing is complaining that the media has portrayed her in a bad light. She wants the public to see her as a great actress instead of the consummate party girl. Hmm. So, she's really a good girl and master thespian? You mean the paparazzi has somehow staged all of her half-naked, half-baked shenanigans? Those evil geniuses! Apparently she's never heard the phrase, "the camera doesn't lie". I guess she'll blame film directors next for portraying her as a bad actress. She's still fuming that they cut her soliloquy on fellatio from American Pie. I hear it was very Lady MacBeth. Is this a penis I see before me?....

Here's to being annyoing! Woo-hoo!

Great list! Mariah Carey is still at the top of my list. For some reason she just makes me feel sick, literally, no one else has that affect on me...well maybe R.Z.

It is sad that there are so many more annoying females in the public eye than male. I can't think of any guys that totally annoy me, although Tom Cruise pisses me off!

I am not a girly chick either, but I do cry a lot and get pedicures. Shopping to me is a necessary evil and I only have two female friens, the rest are guys. What is the point of pouring beer out of a bottle into a glass? Then you'd just have a glass to wash.

Count me in on not being a girly girl. I have my girly moments, don't get me wrong. Because I grew up in an all girl family, I probably am more of a girly girl than other non girly girls. I replace my pic on my blog or internet stuff about once every six months as that is how often I have both my hair looking decent and makeup on at the same time. I do cry though, I am afraid, just not when I am sad-ever! I cry when I am touched or happy for someone. Sounds crazy but it is true. I too still have Mariah at the top of my list. I am so sick of seeing her breasts!!! and is it me, or is she doing the Michael Jackson lightening thing? She just suddenly looks very different than she did. Maybe it is just a golden toned makeup? I don't know, but I was ready for her to fade off the map.
Paris I can tolerate. Don't like her, don't dislike her. Tara reid? How did she get famous? Does anyone know? I know I have seen her drunk one too many times and I don't even know her. Does make me wonder what Nichole did to Paris though? Hmmmmrambling, sorry.

You cracked me up about the shrieking thing - I always wondered what the hell was up with that?

I love your rundowns...they often mirror my feelings exactly! I can't stand any of those women, for some reason Jennifer Garner especially! She seems kind of goofy to have the title of Sexy Badass. I AM a girly chick but these girls take it a little too far...

OldGuy's Tree House said...

Paris Hilton is the worst in my book.

A no talent skinny blonde chick with loads of money and she's always crying about all the people who have hurt her feelings.

Gimme a break !

Hey BeckEye,

Now I love me some Mariah, listening that to give credit where it's due, the heifer can sing!

I'm not a girly girl either, but stop playing! A manicure and pedicure are like...totally necessary! LOL

Great blog.

Lee Ann said...

I'm like you, I go to the bathroom by myself, don't like talking on the phone, don't like to shop, don't shriek when seeing a long lost girlfriend. I have always gotten along better with men. Most of my friends are men and a few women(who also get along better with men).
I think you have highlighted the particularly irritating women here. Sometimes I just want to smack them into reality as well.

priscilla grim said...

so, my question then would be, who gives girls a good name?

my suggestions:

Tina Fey
Maya Rudolph
Susan Sarandon
Kathleen Hanna
Maya Angelou

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
