After becoming a huge fan of the show “Sin City Rules,” I was disappointed to hear it was canceled earlier this month. As a true fan, I stuck by the show and completed the three un-aired episodes by watching them on the TLC website. There are conflicting reports about why the show was canceled, but many speculations are being made. Most of them are accusatory, and I really don’t have an opinion other than TLC should grow some god damned balls and keep the show on the air! Hell, Bravo keeps those housewives on the air when they act ghetto. What’s the difference? Well, I know some of these ladies are classier than that, but I am still one pissed off fan because this was the ONLY nighttime show I watched religiously since my “666 Park Avenue” was canceled.
So now, here are my thoughts. They are mine alone and were not influenced by outsiders or insiders. Just me and my words.
From the very beginning two women stood out to me, Amy Hanley and Lori Krause Montoya. These were the ladies that gave off the “real” vibe without trying. I was not an Alicia Jacobs fan at all, and neither Lana or Jen really interested me. Fast forward to the finale and things have changed. These are my individual thoughts on the ladies now, and why the conclusions came about.
Alicia– After the first few episodes aired, I was actually warming up to her. I could relate to her a little bit, especially when Lana attacked her on vicious and slanderous rumors. I liked that she accepted Amy for who she was and helped her through the emergency hospital call. Now at the end of the show I am conflicted. I have heard some things she has been accused of, but can’t actually believe she did those things. She is probably one of the more professional ladies. Right now, I would still watch her on television.
Lori and Lisa– I really like these ladies. I have seen the episode “Ambush” and I can’t believe that Lori was intentionally setting Amy up. I know that it looks that way, but in every other episode where Lori talks, she is not a vindictive or evil person. I do believe the ladies have always had the best of intentions both with the Amy drama and the Alicia drama. Oh and Junior, he is pretty cool too 😉
Lana– Anyone that thinks they are God needs their head checked. I understand she had a hard life and came from nothing and built something, but the ego that she has is ridiculous. In the scenes with her commenting on the show, she is constantly bashing the other ladies, especially Alicia and Amy. To me, that shows no class at all. Spewing rumors around about Alicia sleeping with married men, ruining Wendy’s birthday party, and just being downright bitchy has ruined Lana for me. She is all over Twitter with this #LanaLive bull shit, and she has a decent following. Apparently being rude and vile garners more “fans” than being real.
Natalya– Technically she wasn’t a cast member, but she is Lana’s sister. This bitch needs a reality check and quick. Living off your sister doesn’t make you a bad-bitch, and dressing like you do makes you look trashy. I’m sure her child will love the imagine she portrayed in front of millions of people. I may tune into Lana’s show just to watch this train wreck.
Jen– Adding Jen did nothing for me. She wasn’t a very interesting person, and no one really needed to know about her period that lasted x amount of days. Her vow renewal with Marco was nice (and he is a hottie), but there wasn’t much added by having Jen present. However, she now runs in the Lana brigade, so we can be sure to see more of her. *rolls eyes*
Kim– I really, really like Kim. She was kind of the voice of reason among the ladies when things got heated, and she helped Amy to organize the dinner for the finale. Kim technically is not a Vegas woman, but she brought a nice touch to the show.
Amy– Amy is still my favorite. I can relate to her in all aspects. I grew up with one parent and my mother died when I was young. I often seek my past to get answers, even though my stuff is not nearly as interesting as hers. I lived a rough life and my attitude is much the same as hers. She was genuine with those ladies during that dinner, and they all still chose to blow her off. I am not sure why none of them have tried to reconcile with her, but they should. Amy is not responsible for what Wendy did, she can only accept responsibility for her own actions.
I am disappointed that TLC made it look like all the ladies were friends at the end when clearly that is not the case. They disappointed many fans by canceling the show and then went on to disappoint with the finale. I hope that these ladies go on to do great things and that TLC kicks itself in the ass, HARD. This was a winning show and instead, they are playing shit about “Honey Boo Boo” and some “Totally T-Boz” shit. Yes, T-Boz is totally irrelevant.
