Lisa Cuddy: The Most Unprofessional Administrator of All Time



"When you bend over, I can see your IUD."  Gregory House, M.D.

Let me begin by saying I love House.  I love Hugh Laurie.  I love Wilson.  I love Robert Sean Leonard.  I don't, however, love Lisa Cuddy. 

I'm not sure where to begin but I know where it will always end up.  Her fricking attire.  Cuddy is supposed to be the administrator of a huge, well-respected hospital in Princeton, New Jersey.  And yet she dresses in too tight skirts with too tight and too low cut blouses and sweaters like she's auditioning for a Hot for Teacher video.   If I walked into a hospital and saw someone dressed like that I would assume either a) she's a stripper who suffered a slip and fall from the pole at work, b) she's an "enterprising" legal assistant/paralegal who is sleeping with her boss who is representing said stripper over the said slip and fall or c) she's a hospital receptionist who is looking to bag a wealthy doctor. 

Okay, maybe a bit extreme but isn't Cuddy supposed to be over 40?  I know the show likes to pull revisionist moves, like telling us a season or two ago that Cuddy was pushing 40 (bitches, PLEASE) after telling us from the beginning that Cuddy and House met in medical school - - but the bags and wrinkles under Cuddy's eyes tell me she's AT LEAST early forties, if not mid-forties.  Nothing wrong with that.  Except that the show insists on dressing her like the twenty-somethings play teenager-somethings on 90210

Just stop, already.  Dress her like a woman who has completed medical school, worked as a doctor and worked diligently to achieve that level of success.  She can still be attractive and, yes, even sexy.

  1. This is hilarious. I love that show, but I agree. I'm always blown away by what she wears... not in a good way. I do love that House always calls her out on it though.

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe: No Pardons!

August 19, 2011 was a joyous day for many reasons.  It was Friday.  School starts this week.  And Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Miskelley, also known as The West Memphis Three, were at long last released from prison.  After nearly eighteen years. 

We supporters have been saying for years that The Three at the very least didn't get fair trials and at most are flat out innocent of the murders they have been accused of.  Freedom from incarceration has been the main goal for years and I am thrilled that the day finally came last Friday.  It is discouraging, however, that Damien, Jason and Jessie had to take an Alford plea in order to secure their releases.  In other words, they had to admit that the State of Arkansas had enough evidence to convict them in a retrial while still maintaining their innocence.  The State of Arkansas, totally speaking out of their ass, claims that they indeed have enough evidence to re-convict in a retrial but released the men, despite their alle…

Bitch, Please: Toddlers & Tiaras

Okay, so I watched Toddlers & Tiaras this week.  Had heard about it, heard in the past that it was a pedophile's dream show, how they exploited kids, blah, blah, blah.  I was channel surfing and there was nothing else on so I stopped.  And watched.  Stunned.

Do parents like these really exist?  WTF is wrong with them?  And how on earth does a 2 month old baby
win a pageant?  The least amount of drool?  Best pacifier?  Carried the best by parent?  I'm confused.  But I digress.

Apparently the format is that each episode follows several kids and their severely in need of therapy parental units as they prepare for and then compete in some type of child's beauty pageant, with the end of the show being the crowning of the winners.

This episode of T&T begins with the unforunately named Brystol of Lexington, South Carolina who is 18 months old and has supposedly won top prize in every pageant she has competed in.  Before you snort and wonder how many pageants she could p…
