With The Mistress outdoing herself for yet another VD – the labor-intensive cooking and alcohol-intensive wine conspiring against her – she has retired early, and given yours truly a moment to contemplate one of the most glorious things in reality television. (Plus, since The Mistress hates reality TV…it’s a good time to do this while she isn’t looking. ;)
Namely, the ugly cry. You know the one. Sniveling, snot-filled, maybe a couple jagged breaths…all to the point of feeling sorry – well, not sorry, more like humiliated – FOR the person crying. And especially when they have no legitimate reason to cry!
No one is sure where exactly the ugly cry initiated. But long a staple of Hollywood, both real:
It is one thing that brings forth peals of laughter from The Mistress’s abode. Hell, when Starbooty sniffed her last catnip, we alternated between sobbing uncontrollably and laughing at the snot bubbles coming out of the other one’s nose. Gross? Fine; I digress. But the point is, we certainly loved and missed her, and even with that, recognized just how silly we were being. (Starbooty certainly would have been over it, licking herself and walking away from the hysterical queens.)
Anyhow...we really started talking about this last night, when I was watching Tool Academy 3 (don’t hate, was a great bridge between – ahem – other activities), and we saw Angelo, a Long Island-bred Greek slab of manmeat that makes my teeth sweat:
Unfortunately, Angelo is also susceptible to the ugly cry. Like when he admitted to sleeping with 200+ women. And repeatedly cheating on his girlfriend, a bartender that he dates “because it’s easier“ to find women through her. And still living with his parents during this.
And of course, for Kailyn, the greatest ugly cry in reality television:
So, readers, come and share! When was your ugliest (and admittedly, in hindsight, probably most hilarious) cry?
Boy Toy :)
