Brett, Stephenie, Lauren and Jen star in the hit reality TV show "Goal Diggers".
You have no idea what I've been through to get here. You don't want to know what I'll do to stay.
The little do-gooding bitch extends her hand.Jen - is the ultra-hardcore health queen. Her diet company went global. She's never looked better. When in reality, her body is shutting down due to her "healthy" lifestyle. Her head is barely above water.
"Be nice girls...The whole world is watching."Lauren - is the fun-in-the-sun party-girl. When in reality , she just got voted out from CEO and is leaning dangerously towards alcoholism.
She's watching me. I can feel it.Stephanie - just published her latest book - a memoir detailing her abusive relationship and rape. When in reality , there's something wrong, very wrong at the core of her life. And she will do anything (anything) to keep it hidden.
"Real queens fix each other's crowns."Brett - is the crowd favorite. She has finally had success with her SPOKE charity-business. When in reality, she's struggling to keep the business. Everyone is turning against her and soon, everything she's built is at risk.
But touch my crown and you will lose a fucking finger.Every year there's a shakeup in the cast - and this year proves to be the biggest yet.
It's starting. Her comeback. This will get ugly.Holy spit. Jessica Knoll knocked this one out of the park.
It is a dangerous thing to conflate feminism with liking all women. It limits women to being one thing, likable, when feminism is about allowing women to be all shades of all things, even if that thing is a snake oil saleswoman.
”We can make this right, can’t we?” Brett pleads. “Come on. You know I always support you. Real queens fix each other’s crowns.”
My disdain takes my breath away. Real queens fix each other’s crowns? This is the equivocating claptrap that passes as feminism these days. Just another Instagram idiom that assigns responsibility to the less effective party. How about, Real kings promote women? Or, I don’t know, Real kings pay black women the same as they pay white women? Real kings pay all women the same as they pay men? That we task women with helping other women in a society that places us in systemic competition with one another is why feminism has failed. Do not recruit me to link arms with my sisters until more than 2 percent of positions at the top are occupied by women, until her success does not almost certainly guarantee my failure. Do not tell me I’m not a real queen when another woman catches a fish and I am too starved to cheer.
