Didn't anyone tell you? Star's shit DOESN'T stink. It smells like flowers.
Here's the thing with Star--and why I suspect people have this reaction to her. She talks everything up in this condescending "my shit don't stink" way. Maybe it's the tone, or maybe its just being repetitive with her talking points (like with mentioning her charity more, mentioning her education more).
I think the overall idea here is that she's condescending. And she has that aspect of it which is often due to a secret lack of self-respect (which outwardly manifests as this kind of boastfulness). We all know these folks... the ones who talk big because inside they feel 3 inches tall. That's Star in a nutshell.
I thought it was HILARIOUS in the last episode how she did her usual parrot-squawk about "my specialty is brand integration and messaging", which for all but a few people in the advertising game with specific schooling which Star doesn't have, is a bullshit way of saying they do nothing and... she did nothing.
Articles like that act like its a deliberate "choice" by reality TV. But really its a combination of the quality of ANY person who goes on Reality TV, and the fact that sensible smart black women KNOW BETTER and don't subject themselves to the process.
In the latest Newsweek, there's an article about how terribly reality TV portrays black women. Of course Star and Nene are mentioned.
You know, what's really telling is watching Star's conversation with Meatloaf outside the boardroom. It echoes the earlier one with NeNe. The statement where Star says "you have to come with MY credentials to get to debate me".
Think about that. That's Star's passive-aggressive escape clause. That nobody else is on her level, so she doesn't have to bother to deal with them when she's on the ropes.
