Tina Fey hosted the season premiere of Saturday Night Live (now with more bright shiny white people!!!) last night and the best skit of the night was their spoof of Lena Dunham’s Whiny White Girl Problems Revue, Girls. There’s been many a time when I’ve rage watched Girls and have said to my best friend (aka the bottle of Barefoot Shiraz that I keep pouring into my cup) that those whiny hos need an abuelita or some other truth teller in their lives to slap them down. Albanian blossom Blerta was that truth teller.
Having truth tellers on Girls should really become a real thing. It would make it one hundred percent watchable and I might even be able to watch it without getting plastered before, during and after (but probably not). One week, Blerta can be Hannah’s roommate, the next week my abuelita (with a bag full of chancletas) and the next week the spirit of Sophia Petrillo. Because somebody needs to tell Hannah that she looks like she shops only at Gymboree and the Oilily outlet.
