Happy birthday to Dean Cain, who will turn 44 on Saturday!
I remember the first time I laid eyes on this warm-skinned, super-duper man on a classic episode of 90210 when he was the gullible, white-toothed, sexy-eyed Wisconsin boy that bought Brenda Walsh’s bad French act one summer in Paris. I couldn’t believe a guy so dumb and wholesome could also be wicked hot and intriguing, but oh, how he was.
Time has treated this hapa well, which makes me very happy. Why oh why did I ever stop stalking this guy?
Conversation that took place recently between me and my Hardass Asian Mama:
HAM: You know, there is another side to this Hardass Asian Parent thing.
ME: (all ears) Yeah?
HAM: I mean, yes, there are Hardass Asian Parents, but there are also Hardass Asian…Children. And Hardass Asian Children can be as bad as the parents. They can be just as critical and show disapproval, and don’t you think we’re afraid of that, too?
ME: (LMFAO) Uh, and where do you think we learned that from?!
I can’t say for sure, because I’m not yet a parent, but I am of the general belief that, if your kid’s a cunt, you’re a cunt. Sure, there are random cunts that can’t be accounted for, but usually, you can trace cunty behavior back to a Cunty Dearest. I thought of this yesterday when I read that Candy Spelling recently blamed the death of her husband and TV legend, Aaron Spelling, on their daughter Tori, in a radio interview. Aaron Spelling, who passed away in 2006 at age 83, was diagnosed with oral cancer in 2001 and suffered a stroke right before he died.
I’m no fan of Tori (although I couldn’t help watching every episode of her VH1 sitcom, So NoTORIous, a few years back, for some reason). Donna Martin was a drip. And Tori’s career is the product of the most egregious kind of nepotism. I’ll never understand, either, why all the money in the world can’t straighten that nose job or plug up that bizarre keyhole she has between her fake breasteses.
But publicly saying that her not speaking to her father is “what killed (him)”? That’s not Hardass. That’s not even possible. That’s just being a bad fucking parent.
