Since the Olympics have been the trending topic in entertainment, I have witnessed the ridiculous media headlines:
- A figure skaters competing while five months pregnant
Determining the maternity of who Ohno's mother is
- Evan Lysacek's new girlfriend
What relevance does the competitor's personal life actually have to do with the competition? Frankly, I think the media is pulling for straws in order to attract more viewers. One article that I read indicated that on Wednesday the ratings for the Olympics oust "Idol" from TV ratings throne. I assume causing more drama within this years competition couldn't hurt that outcome. Honestly, I could care less about their personal lives however it seems that every second the media attempts to throw it down our throats and not focus on the competition at hand.
I recall when Michael Phelps' drama was shoved down our throats. It seemed as
though every where I turned he was there; on Oprah, on a T-Shirt, on my damn box of Wheaties...... the media constantly put him on a pedestal. Then they got into his personal life and didn't like what they saw. They witnessed Michael smoking some ganja and damn near caste the boy out of the country. No, I am not condoning his behavior but some media outlets can be Drama Queens & Kings.
If you can take something as mundane as the Olympics and find drama out of it, you are a Drama Queen or King. I wish they would just let these people compete and go home....Geesh!
