Recently, two news stories caught my attention:
Snooki, from MTV’s Jersey Shore, claiming she is a victim of bullying. And Farrah Abraham, of MTV’s Teen Mom and a more recent famous video outing, also claiming that she was bullied.
Ladies, get a life.
“I was bullied in high school and I’m beyond bullied as an adult on television, but I refuse to let anyone bring me down because all they talk is nonsense,” Snooki says in the article from Starcasm.net. OK, maybe you were bullied in high school, Snooki. Lots of people, myself included, had instances of this and it is a growing problem of national concern. However, you were offered a fabulous opportunity as an adult— an opportunity to make a lot of money to go on television and act like a drunken idiot. You performed this role with flying colors.
On Twitter, Teen Mom Farrah Abraham has had an interesting stretch of time, recently saying, “Laughing at all the #WannaBeBullies today :)) #ThankYouHaters such #WannaB’s #GoCry ask someone for a hug if you can’t handle life :)”
This, after she slammed both Kim Kardashian and Charlie Sheen in recent weeks. The road runs both ways, my friend.
Celebrities are celebrities because they are in the public eye. Both Snooki and Farrah Abraham signed up for fame. Whether they like it or not, once the public has a perception of you, we will form opinions. Because people have opinions of you that you might not agree with, does not constitute bullying.
Snooki says she just wants to be a great mom, loving fiance and successful business woman. Well, go for it. Put your nose to the ground and make your dream happen. You already have a leg up, called fame, that most of us do not. But please don’t go around crying that you’ve been bullied when we have real teenage victims of bullying hanging themselves in closets across the country.
