Tony DiSanto, MTV's executive in charge of "series development," promised the show would be a "rollercoaster ride of drama, conflict and emotion, busting stereotypes and challenging the norm -- proving that the rules of attraction are made to be broken."
The most recent episode centered on forcing each of the remaining contestants to eat a bull penis and testicles to win some hot-tub time with Tila. What followed was a series of cheesy references to oral sex. Then the first man and woman to finish that stomach-turning feast moved on to crunching on bull eyeballs, a heart and a shot of blood. In a nutshell, this is another show designed to shock, shock, shock.
Move over, Britney Spears. Tila is the new poster child for Hollywood air-headedness. When the Madonna of MySpace was condemned by religious traditionalists for contributing to the general degradation of the culture, she declared that God was actually on her side. She didn't believe in the God that condemned her "lifestyle." She was saved by "the God I can feel and hear in my own heart." She condemned churches that wouldn't bless same-sex relationships since "they have a higher responsibility to teach the youth about unconditional love."
It's getting a little rich when someone whose whole "career" is built on smut starts talking about someone else's "higher responsibility." In fact, she wrote that perhaps her MTV/MySpace infamy was one of God's works. "Maybe God put me on this path so that I would be able to share with everyone else who may be going through the same things?"
Her parents must be so proud.
