Entertainment reporters are known for having some dippy moments, especially the taking heads on E! Guiliana Randid should be dubbed Queen of the Bobbleheads. Her rise to fame included a lot of tenacity, well according to her reality show on The Style Network.
What I really saw on that show the first, and only, season I tuned in, was that Giuliana lied to her husband about basically everything- she does not like adventure. There was more -I simply opt for my brain cells to forget.
Last year’s Granmy Awards’ red carpet, saw “G”, fangirling out on the members of One Direction, who did not find a middle-age woman proclaiming them “totes adorbs,” engaging, making it cringe-worthy.
This week, under the guise of fashion “expert”, on E!’s show Fashion Police, G made several jokes about teenage performer Zendaya, looking like her hair smelled like patuli oil. The triple-threat actress-singer-model then reacted with poise and grace, educating Rancic about the origin of the locs she wore- as a conscious tribute to her heritage as well as hair shaming of African Americans.
It makes me appreciate what a fantastic example Zendaya is, of strong, thoughtful females in the public eye. She doesn’t have to cringe, showing further grace by accepting Giuliana’s apology.
When the overall movement is positivity for women in the workplace, E! continues to remain trivial, where there is the opportunity to have intelligent and real critique that makes sense and still be fun. I’m not a fan of Fashion Police, a show my fellow Barnard alum, Joan Rivers helmed, that takes constant cheap potshots and hand out character assassinations, like Giuliana’s, that have nothing to do with fashion.
The nail cam has been put to shame. The vapid, unprepared fallback questions: who are you wearing? Who are you excited to meet tonight, are not going away, if anything it’s business as usual with E! signing another hugely expense deal with The Kardashians. Yeah, those clumps of shows that have been falling in ratings. What business sense does that make? None. Where is originality? The new scripted show about the royals looks so promising, but E! I’m sorry, we’re more then done.
