'A Conglomerate Heap Of Trash...'

A lot of us here in the Horde like to claim that we "contain multitudes." This is not always to our credit. To wit, I happened to stumble across this description for a new VH-1 show:


Mayte Garcia (Prince's ex), R. Kelly's ex Andrea, Sheree Fletcher (Will Smith's former wife), Eddie Murphy's former spouse Nicole and Jose Canseco's former bride Jessica will sit around commiserating in this reality series. We're hoping for lots of juicy stories about their rich and famous former husbands.

My reactions were 1.) This looks awesome and 2.) They have a cave-troll. 

Don't ask me to explain it. I'll have a post up about Foucault and the insight Discipline and Punish offers for those looking at the concept of rape. Then this will never have happened. It will shock you much this never happened. 

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. He is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle.
