I was taken aback by something yesterday. My boyfriend and I were in a grocery store getting a few things to tide his mom and my daughter over while I’m on my LA adventure (stay tuned for that) when I saw a magazine with Sean and Catherine on the cover. Aw....they are my favorite couple.
I looked at them, and I looked again, and then I thought to myself. She doesn’t look like Catherine. I'm not saying she wasn't Catherine, but she didn't look like the Catherine I fell in love with over the past few weeks.
Then it occurred to me…they airbrushed her to the point that she looked like everyone else! The gorgeous, glowing, amber skin was all gone.
At this point, I'm a little stunned; then, for lack of a better term, I was a little insulted. After all, Catherine reminds me of my best friend since childhood -- a gorgeous Filipina woman with big brown eyes and long, black eyelashes who wore minimal make up. When she said she was "pee and go," she meant it. Catherine is a natural beauty.
So, I’m standing in line getting angrier. Were they trying to hide her race or did someone just get overzealous? I poke my boyfriend who is now paying and fumbling through coupons.
He looked at me and I said, "I need to ask you something because you don't watch the show." I pointed to the magazine, and before I could ask him what her nationality is, he beat me to the punch, "She looks weird."
"Too much airbrushing?" I asked.
"Everyone is airbrushed. She just looks weird."
I'd love to get an opinion on this one. He's the first Bachelor since Byron to choose someone who wasn't white (I think) and I liked the fact his bachelorettes were a really diverse group.
Moving on, this is enough of my rant. Here are a few other things I noticed with the Finale and Final Rose:
