We couldn’t see past the boobs

This would have been such a cute show without the excessive need to show boobs. Note that I’m not saying cleavage, but full on boobs without the nipple. Understand that this, apparently, is what Mariah is known for but I didn’t know that before I sat down with my kids family to watch. In the spirit of not trying to body shame and to keep in the Christmas spirit, I didn’t say anything, hoping that a less revealing dress would soon appear. But it did not, so I wasn’t shocked when my kids started talking about how weird it was that a grown woman felt the need to show so much boob in a family show. Bets were placed on which boob would pop completely out first and that was the talk until the end of the show. The show lost its Christmas voice before it even started.

Great messages
