Staten Island Paper Deplores MTV Appearance of Local Girl
We congratulate the Staten Island Advance: "Cursing Staten Islanders take center stage on MTV show" sounds like one of our headlines. The paper says Staten Island continues to "serve as a laughing stock for viewers across the country" thanks to the recent appearance on MTV's "A Double Shot at Love with the Ikki Twins" of borough native Rosemare Masella. They report that Masella "made out with one of the twins in front of the family" and participated in "a curse word-laden shouting match," as if being on the show weren't embarrassing enough. The Advance also reviews other unfortunate MTV appearances by locals. But isn't reality TV itself an indictment... of all of us? (dissonant music, fade out)
