Mrs. Cunningham And Whores


I didn't really ever think I would talk about Marion Ross aka Mrs. Cunningham from Happy Days and whores in the same sentence, but it's a Friday and it's the summer time and so I can make allowances. Kind of like how the dress code at work loosens up on Fridays, especially in the summer to the point where by about mid-August people are coming to work in the same clothes they wore to the beach or the pool the day before. Then when Labor Day hits, the boss comes to his senses and everyone has to go back to conformity. Sucks doesn't it?

Well thank goodness for Marion Ross. She is like a breath of fresh air surrounded by Ben Gay. In an interview she gave for her latest film, she was asked what she thought about the new crop of celebrities. First Marion regaled us with stories of her celebrity heroes like Ingrid Bergman. Nice. OK, got Ingrid Bergman in your mind? Cool, lets continue.

"Now the model for young Hollywood is about dressing like a little whore. It’s tough. It’s sad. Don’t these people think about the future? Don’t they plan out a whole life? Even at my age, I’m planning my life."

Can I get an Amen? I will never watch Happy Days the same way again.

... "Awww geez... Mrs. C. You're only half right. The model for young Hollywood today... is to actually *be* a WH0RE" says The Fonz... aka "classalpha".

A-MEN! I was gonna say they act like whores, but classalpha was right, they actually ARE whores, no acting necessary (hence the reality shows, no talent = no acting!)

This is exactly why I refuse to buy my kids Paris Hilton's "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset".

I love Ingred Bergman, but I believe she was considered a "whore" since she had an affair with a man, while she was married. I don't consider her a whore, but the whole world did. She had to work hard to get back into Hollywood's good graces. I do agree, however, that today's celebrities are pretty much publicity whores...and very few have any talent.
