I have a very good friend whom I have known for several years, who is on a reality tv show. (I will not say who or what show). I do not tell people I am friends with her that do not already know because really there is no need...do you tell your friends about all of your other friends for no reason? of course not. However the people who do know of my friendhsip with her and her family ( i have known her well over 10 years)....those that do are always asking me questions or making comments about her to me. It's really pretty annoying. Do they really think I am going to answer ridiculous questions or devuldge information on her private life??? Not happening! You don't do that to friends. Also those who dislike her feel the need to tell me their feelings on her (without them even knowing her!)....do you really expect me to sit their and listen to you bash my friend and her family when you do not even know them? I always change the subject and make it clear the conversation is not appropriate. Reality TV is not all reality trust me....about 50% or less of what you see is actuality, and editing does wonders.
Worse off is people just do not now how to act! When this friend came with her kids to my son's birthday party...the moms of other children there who I don't really know that well like huddled in a corner and pointed and whispered. Grow up! She is a human being and not for nothing she's not angelina Jolie or somthing! Then next time I saw these moms it was like , here come the question "you know her? how do you know her? Is this true> is that true? blah blah blah" I'm not going to not invite a great friend to things because other people don't know how to act like adults, and on the same token my friend shouldn't have to made uncomfortable. Maybe I just see her as being the girl I have known for so long and don't get the fascination, I don't know. But I think it just also comes down to being respectful. Sure she puts her life out there so people will make judgement and comments..it's expected...but why do I have to hear about it?
and BTW this isn't a "brag" post like ohhhhh I know someone on tv. Trust me. It's just another example of how annoying woman can be! lol
