Most Fascinating Person 2012

People, we live in a sad world when a 7-year-old reality star is considered for such an honor as: Barbara Walters Most Fascinating Person of the Year.

In this day and age we get it, entertainment rules everything. However, when more people watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo than the presidential debate.. that’s sad.

If you don’t know Honey Boo Boo, her real name is Alana Thompson. Her TV debut came from the show Toddlers and Tiaras, you know the show where parents dress their 3-7 year old girls like mini-prostitutes? (Sorry we’re not sorry). Well from there came Alana, her mother the “Coupon Queen” and the rest of the family on her spin-off show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Here’s the thing, we don’t hate this little girl and her family we just don’t like and understand why this is what Americans have succumb to for their entertainment. If one little girl who drinks “Go-Go Juice” (a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew, which her mom provides) to get her hyped for pageants can make it on TV than why not anyone in this country. How about we spend that money on things we actually need in this economy. Anyways we got our rant out, enough about her.

Last year for example, Barbara Walters picked the late Steve Jobs for her most Fascinating Person..job well done Barb. We bet most of you are reading this on your Mac Books and iPhone’s too, ha.

Every December Walters produces a list of 10 people, celebrities, groups, politicians, etc. and has a brief interview with each then picks her favorite. In the running this year along with Honey Boo Boo are; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, One Direction, Ben Affleck, Olympian Gabby Douglas, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Prince Harry,Director of the CIA David Petraeus and Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James. That’s a solid list and we totally get why 9 of the 10 made the cut. Clearly she picks based on who brought the top stories and entertainment to the world this year.

Furthermore, the show airs tonight on ABC and the word around the web is that David Petraeus, the general who had an affair with his biographer, is the winner. He was also crowned the title in 2010.

Our top 3 picks from that list would have been: Seth MacFarlane, E.L. James or Chris Christie.

Betties, let us know what you think about the list, do you agree with the choices and the winner?

Change

“The only constant in life is change,” it is inevitable and that’s life.

If you don’t like something..change it. So simple to say, but change may be very hard to do. We could fill this entire post up with amazing quotes, pictures and stories on change, but instead we are going to try to give out a little inspiration for anyone who needs that extra push. Why? Because sometimes we need that extra push to change things in our lives as well.

Change is probably one of the hardest things to do. Some people embrace it and simply need it all the time, some hate it and live their life their way and that’s that. But there are people who want change and are hesitant to take that leap. It tends to happen for a reason and usually that reason leads to a better life and opportunities. We Betties, we have gone through a lot of change in our lives from living in different states, starting and ending relationships to new friends and changing our majors in college (time and time again).

One big way to tell if you may need change in your life is your moods. If your moods are like a roller coaster and you’re not going through menopause, you need a change. Maybe your life is stagnant, which causes you to feel down. One word: CHANGE. Quit complaining and get out there and do something new!

Please challenge yourself. Not only is it a form of change but it will make you feel so good once you’ve accomplished whatever it was you were trying for.

1. Be positive. Make that invisible cup go from half empty to half full..all of the time.
2. Change up your routine from time to time, take a new route to work, read instead of watching television, shower in the morning instead of at night or vice-versa.
3. Get in contact with an old friend or make time for the friends you have now that you rarely see anymore.

The older you get the harder it is to change something drastically, so do the bigger changing while you’re in your 20’s and 30’s.

Big Change:
1. Quit your job, if you’re miserable. Try something new, you have time to dabble.
“I love my job, if you ask me anyone who hates their jobs have no one to blame but themselves. We make our own destinies and I’ve made a sweet one here.” –Horrible Bosses

2. Move to a new town, city or state. Hell, move to a new country. It’s super nerve-wracking, we have both done it but it provides a new experience, and new friends. Even if you only stay for a couple of months.
3. Try learning something new. Make a bucket list and start doing the things you wrote down on the list.

Be inspired to change, to start something new. It’s really never too late, and life is short. Make your life exciting!

Do you have any creative ways of changing things up in your life? Let us know.
