"Reality" TV my ass
So I was watching "The Bold and the Beautiful" yesterday (come on now, I am on bedrest and I enjoy me some daytime TV) and one of the characters is pregnant and they found at her ultrasound that she has -- dum dum dummmmmmm -- incompetent cervix.
I almost screamed -- I mean how fabulous! I was expecting to see a character on bedrest with weekly doctor appointments and an emergency cerclage surgery. This was going to be great daytime drama. Will Brigit have bathroom privileges? What about shortening? And how would they show the vaginal ultrasounds?
Oh but no.
After a dramatic commerical break, her doctor told her she does not have to stop work or go on bedrest or do anything special, she's just at risk for delivering pre-term.
What a totally unrealistic portrayal and a disservice to women who watch the show. Not to mention now everyone who knows me and saw this show probably thinks I am faking it. Great.
Hi, people I work with? If you are reading this? I am not faking it. I spend 23 hours a day on my back. Thanks.
I feel I should write to the producers of this show and cite the injustice of it all. What a load of shit.
