It's Like MTV and Facebook Just Aborted Their Baby!

BYEI don't know why I care, because I am not 17 to 24 and a lass, but I am pleased as punch with the cancellation of Alexa Chung's chat-Facebook-faux show on MTV. It was AWFUL. It was clearly garbage from the moment she announced it at the MTV ad-buyer upfronts. The head of programming crowed, "It's like if MTV and Facebook had a baby"! (To which we responded: "She is just Rocketboom plus Julia Allison plus platform extension, which I guess means there will be like eight girls locked in a room somewhere chatting on Facebook with viewers, sending messages that exhibit all the acumen and emotional connection of Eliza.") And now, we see the truth about "social networking"-her Twitter and her Facebook have gone all quiet. For once.

AHAHHAHAHAHAHA. I was WAITING for this post. I love how much you hate Alexa Chung. I love how I can FINALLY wear my Jeffrey Campbell rip-off atacoma acne wedges because she doesn't exist anymore. Poof! Magic!

That's interesting. How does that make you feel?

Does that question interest you?

The questioner’s agenda interests me.

Ooo, an ELIZA namedrop -and- a themed comment. Be still, my blinktagged heart.

Don't you ever say Hello?

I know why I don't like her. Because she is a vegetarian AND lists one of her fears as "carbs." The latter alone would be bad enough. But combined with the former? How?

She also makes active tents out of her flaccid tent dresses which I find inexplicably infuriating

Vegetarian + fear of carbs = fear of food. No wonder her show failed to survive.
