Why Sister Patterson from I Love New York is one of the most vile people on television
Sister Patterson is a detestable bigoted old woman who tries to achieve celebrity by living vicariously through the dysfunctional love-life of her daughter. And because her daughter's antics on VH1's reality show overshadowed her own on last season, I guess Sister figured she should ramp up her despicable behavior to prevent her footage from being left on the cutting room floor.
Audiences got their first taste of Sister Patterson's new improved vile self last night on the premiere of I Love New York 2. So, let's see. Where to begin with my rant about this woman? (I admit this is a rant and I hope that Sister Patterson redeems herself somewhat so that I can recant these opinions sometime in the future.) But, the premiere was last night, so I'll deal with that.
Aside from asking Wolf to show her his penis (eww...in so many ways, eww) and taking one of New York's cast-offs for herself, Sister Patterson's biggest offense tonight was clearly her treatment of Midget Mac. Upon first seeing this little person, Sister screamed to the high heavens. I, for one, had no idea that little people were so scary. After warning her daughter about how she shouldn't pick Midget Mac, Sister Patterson deigned to converse with him at the mixer later on in the show.
I thought this conversation might show a more human side of this woman and prove that the dramatic scream was just for the cameras. Although how she thought screaming at the sight of a little person would be a funny or entertaining moment of the show is beyond my understanding. In her conversation with Midget Mac, she explained that she had never seen a little person before (yeah, right) and it was like seeing a forty-foot giant. Yep, I bet that made him so much less offended. She did apologize to Midget Mac which struck me as a slight show of tolerance. However, when it came time to deliberate as to which five guys would leave the I Love New York mansion, Sister Patterson vehemently argued that her daughter send Midget Mac home. Her reasoning for this choice hadn't changed.
