I read Rina Jimenez-David’s column in the Philippine Daily Inquirer about how Teri Hatcher might be hounded by paranoia all her life from hereon. It’s funny how this has indeed brought to mind the number of Filipinos and Filipino-Americans all across the globe—especially in the US. Read her article so you’ll get the real deal.
I can’t agree enough with her when she said how Desperate Housewives has long been a parody. Marc Cherry couldn’t be happier with this controversy. What a way to open the fourth season indeed!
As for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, well, I have always been a huge fan. Too bad they had to feature that picture with the word slut in it. I wonder if it had the same effect if they used Kris’s picture instead. Ooops. My bad. I’m sorry. :p But really, I understand our former prexy’s children’s feelings. But come on, people, it is after all, a parody. And I’m sure if Bubble Gang did something similar and called former president Jim Carter a man-whore or a gigolo or any other disrespecting words, no one would have reacted. Well, Habitat for Humanity would have said something but I don’t think US lawmakers would write letters to the Philippine Embassy or something. I guess it’s time we toughen up our hides and shrug off things that can’t kill us.
