THE INITIAL STATEMENT
Yeah, hi. I tuned in to watch an episode of The Hills last night. Not Golden Girls: Huntington Beach edition. WTF is up wth Nana? Why did MTV feel compelled to dedicate 8 of the 10 minutes of the show where characters are actually conversing... to Nana?
First of all, NANA, if that is your real name... why aren't you disagreeing with Stephanie that Spencer is your favorite? In the grand tradition of elderly family members, aren't you supposed to claim that you have no favorites? That you love them all the same? And it's not like I think Stephanie should be your favorite because, ugh. But the point is, you shouldn't have a favorite. That's bullsh*t.
Second of all, why did Spencer need to explain the LC/Heidi situation to you? Do you live in the world? Do they not deliver Us Weekly, People magazine, and NBC to Huntington? Also, according to the Aftershow, you LOVE The Hills. You should know this feud like the back of your Pratt hand. So why play dumb?
And finally, have you met your grandchild Spencer Pratt? He talks around you like he assumes you can't hear what he's saying. How do you not see through him and that he was blatantly guilt-tripping Stephanie into visiting you? He is a maje prick. Does he really call you once a week? I don't know how you stand it. You either have the same tolerance for idiodacy as Chiara, or you're dumb as rocks in your old age.

I enjoyed The Hills last night. Usually, I'm disappointed by the lack of grandparents on my favorite reality tv shows. So to see Spencer and Stephanie interact with their Nana, to me, was a breath of fresh air. I think this is going to be a growing trend on tv and cant wait to see more of my favorite MTV stars (besides Joey from Real World Hollywood) interact with their grandmas. .
I wonder if Spencer realizes he's at a crossroads and thats why he consulted Nana? Let's be honest. This season is stale, everyone is waiting for The City, Lauren has alienated all of her BFFs, and how long can Spencer keep a feud with his sister going? We need new drama, and not the fake kind of drama but the really real kind. So I think its endearing Spencer brought his Nana into the thick of it, and I think its a strategic move. I'd like to see LC try and impart some words of wisdom on Nana because let's be honest, Nanas have already heard and seen it all.
On a side note, my own Nana died in a Nursing home in March 2005. I miss you. I should have been a better grandson and visited you more. I hope wherever you are, you are happy and with Poppop.
