Super Spoiled 16

So yesterday was a snow day and I was trapped at home, watching My Super Sweet 16 on MTV with my teen.  Can I just whine about what a horrid show this is?  First episode a little blond beyotch has a huge party with some band named Lipstick Fluffboys or something. The she goes outside for her gift -- because, hey, who knew that EVERY show ends with the kid getting a new car, apparently not anyone who is actually ON the show -- and up comes a nice Nissan SUV.  What is the girl's reaction?  She's pissed.  PISSED.  I mean puh-leeeze.  I drove a freakin' Chevette when I was 16 and she's all spitting nails over a new Nissan?  Of course the Nissan was a decoy and she got the Mercedes SUV she wanted, liberally studded with Swarovski crystals.
Next comes the son of a rap star, who has three major acts at his party (even I'd heard of them).  And bellydancers.  Oh, and tigers.  And he gets a Lamborghini.  AT  SIXTEEN.  The third show was weak, by comparison.  Poor girl had a roller skating party with a DJ and got a VW Bug convertible.  I felt sorry for her.
And in every episode, some kid looks at the camera and says, "I wish MY parents loved me this much!"

I like the part when the teenagers change clothes 3 times during the party like they're presenting at the Academy Awards.

My kids love that show but they recognise that that doesn't happen in real life. And I always use the attitude of the kids towards their friends and their parents for a life lesson. "See how obnoxious kids become when they're too spoiled!" I tell them that they will appreciate their transport much more if they buy it themselves.

I love my kids WAY more than that, but I don't have money to buy them any sort of car.

It's soooo crap that this sort of shit makes our kids have unrealistic expectations, and then they feel let down when we can't live up to the expectations.

OMG, there are very few shows on TV that can get an emotional reaction out of me... This is one of them. And let me just say, it's not a pretty emotion. Anger to the point of bile churning is NOT pretty.

As a side note, I don't seek out to watch this show. It's like a train wreck, you just can't help but look at the ridiculousness.

That was the first last and only episode I ever saw of that show. It made me want to wretch.
