Rachel Bratz

Boston got a visit from the four twitz who’ll play the lead roles in “Bratz: The Movie” yesterday. The YMCA on Huntington Avenue let it’s summer campers mingle with the mouthpieces of this mindless piece of cinema sludge. Yes, they talked about their “passion for fashion” with inner-city kids — yeah, you can’t make this stuff up! Seriously, who better to talk to kids who live in a city often gripped by spiraling violence than four materialistic dolts who portray characters as plastic as they are?!

The success of the “Bratz” doll line has to be one of the signs of the Apocolypse! They should be more accurately called “Slutz”, but I guess that’s a little too much truth in advertising. To see little kids walking around with these freakishly made up creatures is truly depressing — even more depressing is when the kids are freakishly made up themselves! Still, it’s the parents who deserve the biggest slam of all … what the #*&% are you thinking! There is no excuse for this!

Speaking of bratz, Rachel Ray is pushing her undeserved celebrity way past the freshness date. She was running around New York City yesterday with some oversized Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee cups. I didn’t mind her so much when she was just a bit player on The Food Network, but now her screeching and mugging antics are everywhere. I can’t even buy a freakin’ box of crackers without seeing her mug. Go away! Better yet, team up with the Bratz girls and jump into the Thelma and Louise Thunderbird!

  1. I agree, Mike — parents should be much more conscious of how their children are spending their free time. Just because something was a book doesn’t make it educational — brands like Bratz (and Gossip Girls, too) create terrible stereotypes for young girls to live up to. We want them to be role models, not super-models, right?

  2. Me too đŸ™‚
