Since my boss let me off work yesterday to celebrate our Victory, I caught up on my DVR recordings of ” The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
One of the housewives, Kim, has decided she wants to sing country music. Her friends are shocked because they’ve never heard her sing or hum anything. On one particular show, she sang… and guys, SHE SUCKED! Not the “okay, she can improve with lessons” kind… she sucks, “the ohmygodmakeherstop, I’m so embarrassed for her” kind. I found myself cringing and I finally had to fast forward through any singing parts.
One of her friends, Sharay, told her she had a beautiful voice and then she proceeded to voice her opinion about another friend who “didn’t support her dream.”
I cannot subscribe to the bullsh&* theory of supporting-someone-so-much-that-I-let-them-walk-into-a-snake pit.
I’m the biggest champion of people shooting for the STARS but I refuse to let my girls get made fun of, if I can prevent it. I’m going to give you honesty: I’ll tell you when you have something in your teeth, when you’re being stupid, when you can’t sing, etc. I do NOT discriminate.
Does supporting your friends dream take precedence over telling them the truth? Am I not a good friend because I’d tell my friend that she can’t sing?
What say you?
