An Open Letter To Rob Dyrdek:
I greatly enjoyed your show “Rob & Big” featuring your inane adventures with voodoo priestesses, buying time machines off of eBay, eating dog-food, campaigning to have your photo on Good Friends cereal and wood-chipping an evil cat statue – all were highly entertaining.
You new “Fantasy Factory” show hasn’t made as much of a connection with me, but LUCKILY FOR YOU, you are on right before The CollegeHumor Show. I always tune in as I went to college* with two of the members of the Cast, and I’ll catch a bit of you as well since you’re on right beforehand.
Last night started out blissfully perfect. Since fantasies come to life in your Fantasy Factory, you were generously sweet in creating areas for your visiting family. You dad got an awesome Indoor Golf Simulator virtual game area. And you showed me that your mom, Patty, and I have a lot in common. What would be a dream room in any place I visit???
A reading room of romance novels of course!
I was so impressed when you and Drama were shopping for used books and he had the audacity to laugh at this amazing genre of books and you replied, “Who am I to judge?”
BUT THEN YOU RUINED IT.
Then you compared romance novels to Playboy…what happened to your not judging? What happened to your open minded approach to your mom’s favorite things? You had no right to make that comparison without even reading a Harlequin, Silhouette, or Avon romance, if you did you would see there is no way it could be considered close to porn.
Smart bitches read romance. While the plots and characters within these books might be fantasies of the reader, the reasons we enjoy them are no different than other genres.
Even worse, you went on to censor all the lusty bits with a black marker! Claiming they were “inappropriate” for your mom to read. That smacked of hypocrisy.
But then WORST OF ALL you accused your mom of hypocrisy. She was upset by your use of vulgarity and curse words in the script and movie you just made. And you replied, “It’s no different than one of your romance novels.” Your dad added, “Good one son.”
Poor Patty! She did not deserve to stand alone in the face of such ignorance. I salute her, along with the other 64.6 million Americans who read romance.
Now that you ruined that fantasy, I would be happy to take any of those uncensored used romance novels off your hands.
