I just saw an ad for a new TV show with Melissa Rivers. The plot line involves her mom Joan moving in. I'd tell you what time and channel it's on, but I couldn't concentrate on the ad because Joan's face is so freakishly disfigured from plastic surgery that I couldn't concentrate. You'd think that someone with her money could have afforded to get the best doctors and avoid looking like a cartoon character. She said a couple of sentences, but I couldn't understand because her face doesn't move when she speaks. Maybe that's the point of the show - a kind of "scared straight" look at cosmetic surgery? That's what I'm getting out of it so far.
Meanwhile, Oprah made what she called a "major announcement" on her TV show. She revealed that she has a half-sister. The first thing I thought of was the tremendous ego on somebody who thinks that the world cares enough that she has a half-sister that she would structure an entire hour-long TV show about it. What is frightening is that people do care. I don't have the education or time to attempt to explain that.
Her half-sister undertook the arduous task of tracking down her history and contacting Oprah privately, and said "family business needs to be handled by family."
Until, of course, you can make it into a television show.
