The Snob was on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin Tuesday, participating in the Beauty Shop roundtable segment. Joined by Jezebel.com Editor-in-Chief, Jessica Coen, blogger Viviana Hutardo of The Wise Latina Club, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and now University of Georgia journalism visiting professor Cynthia Tucker, we talked about the charges being dismissed in the sexual assault case involving former IMF chairman Dominique Strauss-Kahn; the over-the-top tackiness of reality TV star Kim Kardashian's wedding to that NBA guy no one's ever heard of until now, Kris Humphries; and black Latina actress Zoe Saldana's turn to go all Angelina Jolie and get herself some lady-tinged revenge in her new film, "Colombiana."
To sum up my opinions -- I'm disappointed with the DSK dismissal but not surprised; bemused with the Kardashian fame enterprise and happy for Saldana. Men have been able to seek vengence in films for everything from their dead parents to dead wives to dead girlfriends to dead buddies to dead pets. Heck. I'm almost positive I've seen a few revenge movies over job loss. Let a lady go murder-bot all over a bunch of extras over some poor red shirt they had sentimental ties to. That sounds awesome! I just want her to get to live in the end. Just like (1971 spoiler alert!) ... Sweetback.
