For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Let me first begin by letting you know that I am a huge fan of the show Scandal. The show lives up to it's name, that is one thing that is for certain. What I have noticed however, is that women who are normally against side-chicks and infidelity are all for Olivia Pope and her relationship with the very married President.
Explain to me, what is the difference between Olivia Pope and the side-chick you despise so much? Olivia manipulates people to get what she wants, she knowingly seen with a married man and she endangers the jobs and lives of people around her without any regard. In fact, if she didn't hold such a high ranking job (whatever it is she does) you would hate her. If Olivia was a regular girl in her 20's that worked for 7-Eleven you would turn your nose up at her and call her a whore. So what makes Olivia any different? Is it her business suit and her ability to fast talk her way out of any situation? Do we really think that a side-chick mistress is incapable of dressing well and formulating sentences? What makes Olivia anything short of a hood rat that you would bash on the daily?
I sit back and wonder why these uppity women see Olivia Pope as a hero, but the neighborhood hood rat gets shunned. It's because you secretly want to be everything that Olivia Pope is. You see the passion she shares with a man who is forbidden, another woman's husband. It looks good doesn't it? You see the way everyone knows what's going on, but no one will dare say a thing. She gets respect, even as a side chick. You wish it were you but you know, as much hate as you've dished out to the local side chick, if anyone were to hear that you have stooped to the same level, you would never live it down. Secretly you wish you were a side chick too. It totally makes sense, otherwise you would be disgusted by everything Olivia stood for.
It's cool girl, we see you!
