OK peeps and peepettes,
I'm seeing alot of this subject on various different threads...so let's try to all suck face together here, ok?
Yeah...everyone's got the "aawwww Shandi" thing goin' on. And some people got the "she's a terrible HO!!!" thing goin' on.
Well, here's JaniceD's take on all things Shandi, her screaming phone boyfriend and that brief glimpse of her violently tongue kissing a hunky Italian at the end of last night's show.
Let's imagine being from one of the middle states (it gives me goosebumps, but try)...working at Walgreens and being nerdy, shy and abused. Now put on top of that:
1) Suddenly being SEXY! HOT AS HELL and having Tyra Banks tell you, you are HOT AS HELL!
2) Cameras cameras cameras
3) Sexy Italian Men
4) Suddenly being in Italy, seeing the world.
5) Succeeding at this show...very possibly even WINNING!
6) Likely a bit o' vino.
Countless other things....what I'm getting at is. Shandi is still a very young, very inexperienced person. And young love is full of tragedy. Heart wrenching, crying for two weeks straight, want to tear your hair out anguish! But it's worth all the movie nights and snuggles and kisses. When I hear her and the boyfriend talking about dates and tossing insecurities at one another...well, it's cute...but I think it's pretty obvious puppy love has wet the carpet.
So BRAVO Shandi! You are growing and you are learning and you are becoming an ADULT woman who is (I HOPE) going to travel the world and see alot of temptation. I hope she's strong enough to resist it and doesn't end up a strung out cokehead model somewhere. So anyways, I'm in favor of Shandi "cheating" (whatever, we're animals, it's in our nature to cheat) on her boyfriend...
BUT...I'm not in favor of Tyra...POSSIBLY?...stacking the cards against these girls to toss some temptation their way.
The cute men on Vespas? I don't know...but remember, on this show it's Tyra's world. Nothing is by chance......NOTHING! Reality TV has nothing to do with Reality people...remember that mantra.
Afterall, wasn't one of the show's first photo shoots that of Eve in the Garden of Eden?
