    Default NY Times calls Heidi Montag a "Feminist Hero"

    NY Times Calls Heidi Montag a "Feminist Hero"

    Will the power dynamic shift on The Hills?
    "Defying our expectations," Heidi Montag "has emerged as a kind of feminist hero" in the new Hills season (airing tonight), a New York Times critic writes.
    "Her groundswell of self-assertion begins when [beau Spencer Pratt] insists on eloping, prompting Heidi to declare, 'This isn't, like, Spencer's relationship and you decide what we do,'" critic Ginia Bellafante says.
    "The full-on joyous Oprah-fication of Heidi culminates with the show's return and gives The Hills a new momentum," she writes. "After taking a break from Spencer at her parents' modest house in Crested Butte, Colorado, Heidi returns to Los Angeles to kick him out and chastises him for taking her flat-screen TV with him." (The happy pair celebrated Easter Sunday together.)
    Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad, who spends her screen time "pining for [Brody Jenner], who, she has confessed, never makes her feel good enough... could learn from Heidi right now," Bellafante writes.

    Uh didn't LC use to date that asshole Jason who was not as rich Brody Jenner so he ended up in jail? How Heidi the media ho's bitching Spengay out for stealing her flat screen TV and standing up to him is feminist heroism I don't get. WTF is the NYTimes hiring Teen Vogue interns and ex reality show cast offs to write their editorials now? Even teenagers think the show is lame and laugh at the self righteous idiots. C'mon role models, please
    as privileged as a whore...victims in demand for public show, swept out through the cracks beneath the door, holier than thou, how?

    That's what I'm thinking. I'm still confused; so this is supposed to be a reality show that isn't real?

    Same here. For the longest time I had no idea what "the hills" was.
