Edie Falco Agrees with Us

Edie Falco

(from Yahoo! TV – Edie Falco Bashes Reality TV Stars: ‘Who The Hell Is Kim Kardashian?’)

In episode 167 and 170 of The Paunch Stevenson Show, Greg and I shared our disgust for stupid talentless dummies getting famous and making millions of dollars for nothing. Is it because we’re jealous and bitter about our own lack of fame? Nope! Edie Falco, a famous actress, feels the same way!

When asked if she watches reality television, Falco said, “Who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don’t understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff.”

“Who the hell is Kim Kardashian? If there’s something about her personality or something that she’s accomplished or her philosophy on something – but beyond that I don’t understand what’s happening. It’s actually frightening.”

Edie Falco, you summed up our feelings perfectly. How about being a guest on our show? You’d fit right in!
