Pull her hair! Scratch her eyes out!

Friday, February 16, 2007 by




Isn't it funny how it's always the women on reality shows that tend to be the most territorial and up-front aggressive right from the start? Zulema had those poor girls quivering in fear and all she did was unpack her luggage. Now that's some talented bitchery.


"Hi...um, Zulema? I'm just gonna put some of my shoes right...here?"


"That's not gonna happen. I don't believe in fairness and I don't believe in sharing my closet with skinny white bitches. Now get out of here before I get all Mommy Dearest on your ass."


"Well! Have you ever!

I am nonplussed!"


"Oh. Well. I'm sure I can probably just keep my clothes in a box or something.

Bitch."

"Look, I'm the oldest of seven children. That means that I'm outrageously territorial and besides, her shoes were ugly. I don't want that shit stinking up my clothes."


"She's very ... aggressive, isn't she? We don't have aggressive people in Allentown, PA.

Oh god, she can't hear me right now, can she? I mean, she's off in the workroom right now, right? You guys would tell me if she was standing behind that screen or something, right?

Anyway, I'm sure we can work out our differences and come to be great friends."


"Here. Just take a good look at this whenever you get the urge to piss me off. That's what's gonna come flying down at your head at 85 miles an hour."

There are reality shows - NONE of which I watch - that Zulema(and Wendy's) type of behavior is appropriate and probably desired.

Then there is PR, which is very much a talent-based show. I would think that an unknown designer would want to be shown in the best possible way at all times.

However, it appears that once that camera starts rolling, a lot of people lose whatever common sense they may have. Zulema is just another misguided person who thinks that she doesn't need anyone else to succeed and blew any chance at goodwill with her roomates. Goodwill which does carry on into the design part of the show. Silly woman. All for what? Closet space. Big deal.

I hate Zulema. She's ugly and greasy and gross. I know that's very kindergarten of me, but she's a virus to the show. Ick.

kitschtrain said...

That is HILARIOUS! I can't stop laughing.

Yes, Zulema was a total bitch. I was like, man, you just met these people and you're already acting like a bitch?

Hahahahahaha. You bitches...!

jinxy said...

Oh honey... bitchiness and immature behavior is a two-way street and its better not to open that door. I wonder how she would have felt to come home and see all her precious wardrobe items sprawled out in the bottom of the tub.

She ought to just be glad she wasn't rooming with a Southern woman. We are all politeness when possible but when painted into a corner we can be nuts. But I have to admit that would have been fun to watch.

Kind of like PR, Dynasty style.

nso said...

Yeesh. Anyone ever tell the bitch about first impressions? I wonder what Zulema's younger siblings think of that whole fairness concept.

I seem to recall Tim Gunn talking in podcasts about Zulema hoarding the bolts of muslin they provide to the designers. Somebody took Michael Douglas's "greed is good" philosophy a wee bit too seriously.

Anonymous said...

WHAT. A. BITCH. That was my first impression of Zulema. I now know I should always trust my instincts.

ROFL. That was her alter ego Shatangi. Shatangi is definitely someone you don’t want to tangle with.

nso said...

Now let's imagine Laura Bennett as the fourth roommate. Chew her up and spit her out.

Embeedubya said...

A seminal moment in PR2. We knew what we were dealing with. Zulema was a great, if stereotypical, character who was fun to watch (and hate). And Shetangi will live forever.

LOL. Shantagi would be DEAD!

Roxy said...

That was a double whammy. I hated that bitch from the get go, and she didn't help her case later on, but I also felt Marla totally wimped out. I'd have grabbed a handful of shoes and thrown them across the room to make my point. Who made her Queen of Sheba? And she's not even that good a designer, IMO. She'll never reach the semi-finals, or final 6.

jinxy said...

Bad Mommy would have just looked at her clothes hanging in the closet and stated with disdain "It's alright, take all the space you need. You won't be here long if these are any indication." And walked off with a smirk to kill.

Bad Mommy-1 Zulema-0

Madeline said...

Oh my GOD!!!! You guys caught the personality not only of Zulema but of my ex-roommate. She wouldn't let me sleep in our room because SHE always needed to keep her friends in there untill 4:30 in the morning and she just.....GRRRRRRRRRRRR!! Thank you boys for venting my feelings for me.

brian said...

"Well! Have you ever!

I am nonplussed!"

Oh, how that made my morning.

ROTFLMAO!!!!

And she snatched the crown of "Entitlement Queen" before any of the gays. Now that's something!

thombeau said...

You guys never cease to CRACK ME UP!!!

Hahahahahaha. My coworkers are asking me if I'm OK. : - )

hiddenzipper said...

Zulema obviously packed her strap on and did not want it to get out of the closet.
That is one angry black woman and I don't think it is the editing.

Vera said...

I agree that Zulema was quite the little bitchy bitch about it, but I also don't think she would have even tried it had the other ladies not been, essentially, a bunch of pussies. Agressive women can smell fear, and I am positive that it was stinking up that room like perfume on a $20 hooker.

John Amaechi said...

Hey Fellas,

Since I retired from basketball, I was thinking about the fashion business and whether you two sweeties could help me along with my career .

I really want to design sports uniforms and thought of you two hunks first.

I love your little blog here. We used to watch PR when we were on road trips. I really like the playing against the Golden State Warriors.San Fran is fab.

Fnarf said...

You're going to have to come up with some better material than "I really like the playing against the Golden State Warriors" if you want to come fag-bashing in here, sugarplums. You have, to paraphrase, opened your mouth and removed all doubt.

kanine said...

Poor Marla. She couldn't design her way out of a paper bag, but she was such a sweetheart. A push-over, but a sweet one.

I think she and Zulema seemed pretty friendly at the reunion, though. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong.

The Scarlett said...

You should have a PR Hair Harpy Death Match. I'm betting that Sh'tangi/Zulema would end up in the semi-finals

BigAssBelle said...

i'd a clocked a bitch and put my shoes right where they belong. up her crabby ass.

ROFL. Me too!

James Derek Dwyer said...

Ummm... that last comment "from" Zulema made me forget how annoyed I am about being back in icy Boston after lounging around naked in the sun of Brasil. Thank you gentlemen... that was really funny... and in a strange way, I love Zulema.

TheGayBoys said...

James, suddenly we're DYING to see your vacation photos.

Chris Rogers said...

I ♥ Zulema.
And no, I'm not Zulema.

thyrza said...

Ahahaha...Zulema. She frightens me, and yet I have to respect her a little. Because if I don't, she will find out and hurt me.

And you captured Marla and Kara PERFECTLY with just a few well-selected images and captions. How do you guys do it? Amazing.

Anonymous said...

I WISH I was Marla in that scene. I would have moved all Zulema's shit to her fourth of the closet, set my stuff up in my fourth, and said "what you gonna do?" You have to show aggressive people up front that you are no doormat.

...Plus, as the gayboys once said--don't ever fuck with an Oklahoma pageant queen! (In reference to Kayne in the Keith episode..) I'm an Okie queen too and I gotta have my closet space!

LittleKarnak said...

Hated Zulema from the beginning. And this Shatangi/Shitangi/Shetangi/however the heck you spell it? Please, I can't stand people who hide behind an alter ego. Who are you, Batman?? If your gonna be the bitch, own being the bitch!

LittleKarnak said...

Ooops, grammar check: "If you're gonna be the bitch, own being the bitch!"

Sorry about that!

GothamTomato said...

There's alot I could say about Zulema, but I'm a little afraid she'd find me and stab me in my sleep.

If Zulema had been cast in Season 1, with Wendy, the ensuing show would have had to be broadcast on the Sci-Fi Channel, and the dueling death stares eminating from those 2 crazies could have reached a dangerous matrix. The blocks surrounding Parson's would have looked like Carrie's Prom.

P.S.- who keeps their shoes on the top shelf in a closet?

Gotta love trolls who come out of the woodwork.

Anyway, it would've been nice to see more of Zulema the lesbian instead of Zulema the uber-bitch. A lot of that was editing, I'm sure of it.

Anonymous said...

I don't remember the Bible mentioning "tallywhackers"....

If you choose what is probably the most heavily edited text in the history of mankind as your guide to how to live your life, then by all means, have at it.

Of course, in order to be anything but profoundly two-faced about your own morality you really should go live in a Meditteranean-rim country, forego all manner of modern conveniences such as cars, medicine, computers, telephones, and whatever else is not specifically mentioned in the Bible, instead of cherry-picking your way through it.

No it doesn't silly! It just means we need to be standing up when we do it.

This concludes the comedy portion of our program. Ladies? Don't feed the trolls.

Crow Winters said...

The Zulema the lesbian story arc could've never occured simply because A) She never talked about it on the show and B) She hid in the sewing room almost the entire time while working, making it difficult for cameras to get in to see her work, or for them to capture her interactions with others.

Ms. Place said...

I'm a loud mouthed Bitch and proud of it. However, I've cultivated friends across the spectrum: girlfriends, boyfriends, straight friends, gay friends. Why? Because one respects one's fellow man (or woman) and learns to dissemble and compromise. One must also genuinely care for others.

Zulema? Her tactics wouldn't have worked with me. I would have barged right in and taken over part of her closet. I wouldn't have cared about her reaction, and if she tossed my stuff out, I would have tossed hers.

Friendship with me is earned, and Zulema is too selfish a creature for me to bother with. But I do know where to take a stance.

The other women? In this instance they were wusses

GothamTomato said...

"Ladies? Don't feed the trolls."



Could we, at least, teach him to fish?

I did want to suggest that he go get to know himself in the biblical sense.

But you know; if you whack your little tally too much, you could end up with a bad sprain. Of course, the ace bandage would make you look much more attractive in jeans.

Roxy said...

Clueless once again. HOW can you guess that Zulema is a lesbian? I can't tell except in extremely obvious cases (lovely Kayne, Robert, Keith... although in his case, it was more like the creepy creature from the Black Lagoon).

I'm even more clueless about gay women than I am with men. What on Earth clued you in about Zulema? Certainly not her winning personality.

She said in an interview that she's a lesbian, said it on-camera, and they cut it out from the show.

I was shocked to see someone acting so selfishly ON TV and on her FIRST day.

Hey bigassbelle! Nice to see another queen here. You, me and adorable Kayne. LOOK OUT WORLD!

Christ on a broken crutch, do you know how hard it is to give yourself the Heimlich maneuver?! I just inhaled my Fruit Loops.

I would have paid to see the two of them, with Laura swabbing down the deck. "Go ahead, go at it you two no-talent wannabes. Mommy has feathers to bead."
