Lots of crybabies this week, and they're not even the actual children on Toddlers & Tiaras.
Renee (Mob Wives)
Renee is supposed to be tough, but she cried all over Staten Island about her plight. Like, really ugly crying. Bawling and whining about her situation. Pull yourself together. Your father is a mobster and your sometimes-husband is a snitch, what did you really expect to happen?
Christine (Bad Girls Club)
Seems odd to be putting someone on this list for not behaving poorly, but it is the Bad Girls Club. She just whined about how homesick she was and she barely lasted three days in the house. Vacations are longer than that. Being so dependent on your boyfriend that you have to run home with your tail between your legs is not bad girl behavior, at all. It's just lame. We wanted to yank her hair for wasting our time.
Vienna (Couples Therapy)
We thought we were done with her after Bachelor Pad, but her hateful self has found this reality show to cash in on her five remaining minutes of fame. Here she's "reunited" with Kasey to see if they can make things work, but Kasey flips out on her when she starts getting texts from another guy saying how much he misses her. And then she's confused that people in the house don't believe she's genuinely there to fix their relationship. But her real dick move came after a therapy session in which Kasey tearfully revealed that he'd been abused by one of his mom's boyfriends when he was a kid. Instead of being a supportive person, she told him afterwards that he'd hogged the session and that she wasn't getting any therapy out of it.
Ryan (The Pauly D Project)
While Christine did next to nothing with her time in Vegas, Ryan has been living it up... if only they had crossed paths. Ryan started a fight in Rhode Island and then embarrassed himself and his friend/boss Pauly by getting belligerently full-on drunk in Vegas. Sometimes these people should have to get real jobs. And suffer consequences.
Trisma (Toddlers & Tiaras)
It was a difficult choice this week what with a mom who had the voice of The Nanny who fed her kid sugar packets and the return of Paisley's mom, who refused to think that her Pretty Woman outfit was a bad idea and who had her small child do a striptease dressed as Lady Gaga this time around. But in the end, it was Trisma who won out, mostly because her daughter Shian was just heartbreakingly depressed about her life. At least Paisley and Isabella seemed to enjoy the pageants; Shian is forced to do a running regiment around her neighborhood and sleep in a girdle to shrink her stomach, and her mother lets her get tips even though a professional advises against it. Trisma also spent all of the money she originally intended for a fence for their home on a multitude of dresses that Shian will never wear, while Shain just wants to let her dog out in the backyard. And she had a full-on meltdown in public when she thought her daughter wasn't going to win anything. Who is the grown-up here?
Blaming Kasey for using his childhood trauma to steal attention from her and then yelling at him for not telling her about it beforehand was some of the most disgustingly self-centered behavior we've ever seen on reality TV, and that's saying a lot.
