America's Next Top Model - Alexandria
There’s girl drama on America’s Next Top Model again. Here’s the situation: Alexandria, who sort of reminds us of Diane Krueger, is unpopular.
She has a bad attitude, she thinks she knows everything, she wants to play the big sister, and she wants to run the show all the time. Controlling, insecure, abrasive, emotionally unstable, and “in need of therapy,” according to the other girls. This is all from the episodes, because we don’t personally know her (obviously), and footage can be edited a certain way.
We’re team Alexandria. And we think you should be too. (Not for America's Next Top Model, just in this fight. We are rooting for Brittani or Monique to win the competition.)
Alexandria is a difficult person to get along with. We’ve all met this person, whether at work, home, or school. One of us spends a lot of time with a veritable Alexandria clone. And you know what? It’s HARD not to badmouth her with others. It’s hard to be nice to her. It’s hard to reach out. This episode made one of us vow to never speak another word against this person.
We know part of why Alexandria is a pain, because Alexandria mentioned it in her confessional. After being called controlling by the girls and the judges, she revealed that she came from an abusive home and was taken out. She felt that she had to take care of her brothers and sisters. She was left to run the show.
That’s how it is. The people who rub you the wrong way have genes, brain abnormalities, chemical differences, dirty little secrets, trauma, a way of looking at themselves that is incorrect, lack of wisdom, lack of a teacher, or lack of support. It’s not an excuse, but it IS a reason. The bottom line is: It could have been you. Easily.
The other girls should be ashamed of themselves for ganging up on this young woman, reading her journal, feeling superior to her, and badmouthing her on national television. The criticism cut her to the core, but Alexandria refrained from dissing the other girls to her boyfriend over the phone.
We hope she finds help, healing, and support elsewhere, because it looks like the other girls are going to band together to tear her down, rather than be classy and take the high road. They are adding fuel to the fire. Tyra loves to preach and bullying is currently a hot topic. We'd like to see her call the other girls out for preying on another's weaknesses. Also, these people need to stop handwriting journals on this show. Of course the girls are going to read it! Have it on your computer with a password, duh.
