Green Eyed Monster

100_0315I recently visited my parents and was treated to something I haven’t seen in years… The Jerry Springer show.  I really wasn’t even aware that it was still on.  I thought that was something that faded into oblivion years ago.  I know you’re going to be shocked, but on the show, this girl was sleeping with this guy, and his girlfriend found out, and the women fought.  But the cheater girl also had a boyfriend, so he came out, and then the guys fought.  I’ve just described every episode of Jerry Springer ever.

I’ve never understood that show.  I always yell at the TV, “just dump him/ her!”  I don’t understand why you’d fight over someone who cheated on you.  If they want someone else, wish them well and move on.

I’m not a big “jealousy” kind of person.  Most of my friends are male, and typically, my husband’s friends are female.  Jealousy (in my opinion), is a big waste of time.

It’s really just not that big of a deal.  Be with the person you want to be with, and if you don’t want to be with them anymore, don’t.  It’s not the 1500’s, and you don’t have to separate from a church in order to separate from a significant other (didja like the Henry the VIII reference?)

Still, something about Jerry Springer must appeal to people since it’s been on the air since 1991.  (I looked it up after my initial expression of disbelief).  I don’t have to understand it to know that sensational stuff sells.
