A Place of No

I am Sitting here watching "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," one of my many, many reality show guilty pleasures. I am going to set aside the tragic events of the summer (a divorce of one couple leads to the suicide of the ex-husband). What I want to talk about (at first) is dogs at the Dinner Table.

Yes my friends, dogs at the dinner table.

I'll set the scene. Big, fancy, multi-multi-multi-million dollar house. It doesn't even matter whose. She's serving a bottle of $2,200 champagne. The idea of this is digusting to me. They are drinking somebody else's mortgage.

Now The British Couple walk in with their ever present mini-dogs. The dogs are dressed to the nines. Eh. Who cares? A dog in a tuxedo is still a dog. Walking in with them is one thing. Sitting down with them is another.

But no one says a word. No one says, "Hey, that's kind of gross," or, "What lovely manners that your elbows are off the table. Unfortnately, your dog's paws are on it."

I understand that there are some cultural differences that may seperate people, but I'm pretty sure that this is bad form that crosses all socio-economic boudaries. I think this is something that everyone can agree on. Because let's be clear, I don't care kind of house you live in - or if you serve champagne or RC Cola - the rules is the rules! But somehow, this couple has thinks that they are sitting on enough money that not only don't the rules of the world apply to them. and they are pretty damn sure that no one will challenge them on it.

And so here we have a problem that runs rampant through the rich in famous: They have no one in their lives to tell them, "No."

"No Ms. Lohan, you can't snort that in the VIP lounge."

"No Michael, you shouldn't put a carousel in the front yard, or buy the Elephant Man Bones, or have a sleepover with children who are not your own."

"No Lady Gaga, I don't think the meat dress is a good idea."

"I'm sorry Elvis, I can't write you a prescription."

"No Charlie. I don't think living with porn stars is a good environment for your kids...No, I don't think that tiger's blood is for consumption. And one other thing...No. You are definitely NOT winning."

I am not saying that dogs at the dinner table = drug use = death. I'm just saying that in many ways, big and small, the world would be a better place if sometimes we came from a place of "No."
