I’m sitting in the living room watching Rome on HBO when this ad comes on for a show on another channel. The first time it aired, I didn’t really pay any attention to it until I hear this girl, all bubbly and excited say, “Hi, Mom! Guess what? I just called to tell you I had my first party!” I look up to see what that’s about but it’s gone.
Sure enough, as soon as the start running ads again, they air it again. I nearly fall off my sofa. It’s for a reality show called “Cat House” which is about a brothel in Nevada. This girl is calling her mother to tell her that she just turned her first trick. Now the thought in my mind is, “WTF? Who calls their mom to brag about that?”
