Multiple Sclerosis and Reality TV Part 2

Back to the seamier side of reality TV and my favorite disease- MS.

In the spirit of saving the best for last how about the plastic twit on the Real Housewives of DC? Her case makes me nuts because there is no proof of her having the disease; it was only introduced by her and her toad-like grifter husband when they were pinned against the wall regarding their actions at the White House a year ago. The majority of what she says about the disease is completely inaccurate but some multiple sclerosis organizations are now paying her to appear at their fundraisers. WTF??!!!!! There are loads of real people out there who hold down real jobs, raise real families and deal with real disability so why give exposure to some haggard idiot with a track record of lying about every single detail of her life? This is already a highly misunderstood disease (it’s NOT muscular dystrophy and it’s not like diabetes) so anything or anyone that hinders its credibility and understanding is something that will piss me off mightily.

What is just as appalling (if not more so) is that both of these horrors use her disease as justification for their behavior. On a Q&A show when questions about their finances and ongoing lawsuits grew too pointed and their nonsensical answers of “people are so mean” brought no relief the husband finally starting shouting, “She has MS. She has MS!!” 

Aaaahhhh….I get it now. Having MS means you can lie, cheat and steal with impunity. It’s the ultimate get out of jail free card in the monopoly game of life. So why didn’t my neurologist tell me this when I got my diagnosis? And why isn’t it mentioned in the multiple sclerosis club handbook?

This woman is an affront to anyone with any disability. Our government has way more important things to worry about but surely some lower level dept of justice personnel could be indicting her botoxed, badly bleached, fake tanned, scrawny ass for intruding on a WH event. AND messing with people with MS. And that’s enough about that.
