YOU GRADE IT
Melissa: No, I totally get it. We have the same sense of humor, and that's why I get it. When you're like, "Melissa, shut up," I am like, "Melissa, shut up." When I watch the show, I'm like, "Oh, God." Kim: And especially this season, with so many of you being on the web, I just think, "Oh my God, one of them is going to read it, and I'm going to feel like an asshole." Melissa: Girl, you can still tear me up! That is your job. Kim: Well, I'm glad that you have a sense of humor about it. Melissa: You have to have a sense of humor. If I didn't have a sense of humor, I'd be fucking dead in a gutter right now. The reason why it's survivable is that I get fan mail from so many biracial kids, from so many young white people living in really sheltered environments. They thank me for teaching them about X, Y, and Z. I had no idea the impact the show had. When I watched it, it was just one of those shows where I was like, "Ooh, look at these mother fuckers." It was never a learning thing. These kids e-mail me, and they send me pictures of themselves like, "This is what I look like and this is what people call me. I just wanted your advice on how to handle this." But it's just sad that people are learning about hardcore shit like that from this stupid, edited TV show.
