  • This show is anything BUT real.

    ila's real last name is Nguyen. Talk about a confused individual with a bizarre life so far- Nguyen was born in Singapore, after her family emigrated from Vietnam, after the Vietnam War. When Nguyen was age one, she and her family moved to Alief, a suburb of Houston, where they lived until they were admitted to a gated community run by a strict Buddhist temple. The family left the community when Nguyen was eight. As soon as she entered middle school, Nguyen developed a tomboy attitude (from strict Buddhist teachings to tomboy?) and got in fights (what a sweetheart!). Her behavior eventually got her sent to a boarding school for six months (not hardly enough) before being transferred to another school. As soon as she reached high school, she used her sister's identification card (theft, Tila, or with sister dear's encouragement?) to enter nightclubs, where she began recreational drug use (oh, yummy, yummy- here's a good role model for all you teeny-boppers watching MiniBrainTv)and joined a gang (oh how innocent she is...). In an interview with Import Tuner, Nguyen said she had been searching for a sense of identity: "I was really confused then, 'cause at first I thought I was black, then I thought I was Hispanic and joined a cholo gang". (A Vietnamese born in Singapore, in a Buddhist-run gated community in Texas of all places, thinking she's black, then Hispanic, then joins a gang? Real intelligence here...especially joining a gang to "find herself".) Later she made some friends outside the gang who briefly helped turn her life around, however her past caught up with her, and she fled to Queens, New York at the age of sixteen.********* Now, this was from Wikipedia, not me, but you get enough of the drift. The show sucks, not only because it is yet another overdose of angst, failure, tears, fights, all about another "who cares?" subject matter, but imagine all the idiots who are deadening their gray matter by repeatedly sitting thru this charade. The house looks like it's Hef's old party room, the "contestants" are largely sorry individuals, made to look even more pathetic than they already were, & Tila Nguyen (Tequila, yeah, right!) is full of smiles, false hopes, short, cute but dumber than the show, & if you look around the internet you can easily find naughty photos of her as Nguyen, apparently before somebody decided to hide her sorry (already, even though short) past. Her "concern" for the guy who went for the ambulance ride was a hoot. Ditto her standing idly by when various fights broke out. (Oh me, oh my- whatever could have caused this!) I confess to seeing 2 sorry episodes, not knowing it was a ratings sweep month "Miniseries", apparently. MTV has long been known to me by its real designation for all its loyal viewers- MiniBrainTv, 'cause that's what's required to watch the garbage spewed from it- this is a prime example of current rotten excuse for American TV. Makes Gilligan's Island & The Beverly Hillbillies look like Nature & Nova. Tila, I wouldn't want you for anything. See a shrink if you're still confused. "Contestants", leave now, never admit having been there- find a real person to find true love with. Show creators/writers/et al, give it up. You're probably the same morons who gave us those swimming images on what became called "music videos". Ruined movies, TV series... look at a John Ford film sometime- he would tell you to never move the camera. You idiots did the exact opposite, like maybe you were/are on drugs. Speaking of drugs- recreational, Tila? Try softball, volleyball, badminton, swimming... that's recreation. Love, by the way, is something a totally mixed-up person such as yourself could never hope to find. It isn't found thru grotesque contests involving lame sorry individuals on TV. Certainly not by yo-yos eating testicles or whatever the idiots were upchucking! Congrats to MiniBrainTv execs for pulling a new low in shows- you've sunk lower than the Titanic with this sub-teen tripe! Jerry Springer must have thought this one up.
