I didn’t want to watch Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll. I even blogged about the premiere and how awful it was, what with Robin Antin’s scary lips and the Dolls’ messed up message. Then, I watched it again. And again. And somewhere along the way, I fell in love with a little underdog named Chelsea. She used to be overweight! She’s “not a trained dancer!” She looks great with big, blunt bangs! As Asia, Melissa R. and even too-big-to-be-a-Doll* Anastacia danced circles around Chelsea, she worked her ass off, and I kept my fingers crossed that her superior vocals and “x-factor” would win out. And it did! At least, it did until last night, when Miss “Give Me A Cheeseburger” Asia was declared The Next Pussycat Doll. Shrieking in disbelief, I suddenly realized that … I was shrieking in disbelief because of the Pussycat Dolls reality show. First I fall for The Bachelor and now this?! Before you know it, I’ll be raving about My Super Sweet 16. While I ponder my imminent doom, visit The CW to audition for Season 2 of Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, because I’m going to need something to watch when they send me off to the loony bin – and you might just be the next “sassy, but classy” underdog to win my heart.
*The most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, btw.
