On being wrong about evil career women.

The fun thing about Liz is that we can have her make a smug remark about how silly it is for April to act like one of her friends is trying to ruin her when she herself has the same drive to make a movie monster out of real people. This makes an even uglier fool of her than it does April because there's a child involved in her casting a real person with real needs as a cardboard villain whose only hope is to see her ruin.

I am, of course, talking about Thérèse. As Anthony's bio makes a point of saying, Liz's rival is an ill-used woman who ruined her life trying to please her stone-hearted and pea-brained ass of a father. She didn't follow her heart and marry her artsy type True Love because she was following an evil, distracting star of her own: a star that led her to marry a man she didn't really love and have a child she couldn't raise in order to make a worthless bum father proud of her. Since this put her in the path of an idiot who can't understand that a person can inconvenience her and also be a good person worthy of love, happiness and friendship, Lizardbreath looks at someone she'd be cheering for normally and sees a soap opera monster who plots her ruin because she watches too much goddamned television and also thinks that she's the protagonist. It doesn't seem to occur to her that life isn't television and no one is the star.
