Anyway, I thought it would be interesting if we had a new rules-esque thread. This is somewhat like the Unpopular Opinions thread, but not really. Just pretend you're a policy actor and if you could, you'd enact certain rules (i.e. "no more shows where the protagonist always gets called by their whole name a la Veronica Mars").
New Rule: Leave Hollywood couples, even the trashy, alone. The one news story that punctuated all the election coverage was Britney has finally (for some of us who cared in the first place) decided to divorce K-Fed. Why do we care? Also, I hate the idea that people are glad they broke up. I know people are entitled to their opinions and all, but we just know they're a little trashy and have some type of symbiotic relationship. But that doesn't mean they didn't love each other, or love their children, or care for one another. It's not the same as Bobby and Whitney who both have had legal issues and drug issues. They have kids, too. Britney and Kevin are just a little more trashy than we'd like them to be, even though that's horseshit too considering how many of us plop down to watch Flavor of Love, which is such a refined, classy, not-at-all-misogynistic show. I think hoping for a couple to split who basically haven't done anything to anyone is a little mean-spirited. Okay, it's mean-spirited as hell. Let them have their dysfunction.
