With the Christmas holiday season officially underway it got me to thinking of all of the things that officially go together with Christmas like decorating the Christmas tree and the outside of your house with many strings of colored lights, paying a humongous electric bill after Christmas due to decorating the Christmas tree and the outside of your house with many strings of colored lights, watching Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer; Frosty the Snowman; A Charlie Brown Christmas; A Christmas Story; Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life a million times in a one month stretch and dreading receiving the ultimate regifting Christmas present, a nasty ol’ fruitcake roll that has been in regifting circulation before even the concept of Santa Claus was even born.
But I must say the biggest thing on my mind in regards to things that officially go with Christmas are none of the above normal things but something a bit more unusual. Let me explain what’s in my unique mind in the form of a question. And here we go!
QUESTION: Will Molly Ringwald find it in her pretty in pink heart to wish Julia Roberts positive Christmas cheer this holiday season?
For those of you people out there who have been living under a rock and don’t know who these two women are, let me fill you in.
Both Molly Ringwald and Julia Roberts are actresses and have had incredible success in their acting careers but unfortunately people only one of these women is a superstar in part due to a bad decision by the other.
You see people, Molly Ringwald, the popular teen queen of the 80’s of such teen classic films like 16 Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink was offered the role of Vivian, the loveable hooker in the smash hit movie, Pretty Woman but foolishly and stupidly turned the role down thereby making room for a young and virtually unknown actress by the name of Julia Roberts who wisely accepted the role and this role made Julia a superstar and one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood and she still holds these titles even today while poor Molly Ringwald and I strongly stress the word “poor” went on to become a footnote in 80′ teenybopper cinema and was unfortunately never able to make the smooth and successful transition like Jodie Foster into successful “adult” movie star actress.
Which brings me back to my original question, “Will Molly Ringwald find it in her pretty in pink heart to wish Julia Roberts positive Christmas cheer this holiday season?”
I mean let’s face it people, Molly has every reason in the world not to want to send Julia positive Christmas cheer this season (primarily financial) but on the other hand nobody held a gun to Molly’s head and told her that she had to turn down the lead female role in the hit movie, Pretty Woman.
People, I am going to take my question a little further.
Will Molly Ringwald send Julia Roberts a nice Christmas card this holiday season telling her Merry Christmas and “no biggie” that due to her own stupidity Julia went on to monumental superstar motion picture acting success while the majority of people today like me who have never seen an episode of the ABC Family television show, The Secret Life of the American Teenager which Ringwald currently stars in, view her as just another washed-up celebrity from the past who made extremely bad career decisions like David Caruso, Debra Winger, Richard Grieco and Shelley Long?
Or will Molly take the low early in the show Grinch and Scrooge road this Christmas season and tell Julia to go fuck herself on one of the many crappy reality shows that so many of the washed-up celebrities from the past constantly appear on?
It is a question that extremely nosey trouble making spiked eggnog filled people like me are dying to know this Christmas season!
Anyhoo, Have a Very Merry Christmas people!
And Molly, I support you on whatever you want to do.
P.S. I love the movies, 16 Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink!
Molly Ringwald, you totally ruled the teenaged 80’s!
