Hate It

I started watching this show to see what it was like... well, I got the info. It's ridicoulous and teen girls are sure to get sucked in. I mean, what's the point of this show? To get a fake BFF for Paris? This is supposed to be like a game show but I would MUCH rather watch American Idol. There are lots of bad words, most frecuantly, b word and f word. Most contestants hate each other, lots of partying and lots of hot women, hot men and sex talk. One of the is a virgin. Never Watch

headline again

Well another news about the socialite Paris Hilton. She was arrested once again and making headline. The 29-year-old Hilton was arrested after officers detected what they suspected to be marijuana smoke wafting from the car Paris was in. When will she grow up and be mature?.
